Latest Update: Modeling: TopClothWIP01 (

Very small update. I did it before I got HF2 and it only took 30-40 min.

Posting this cuz this 5 CD install is boring ;_;

* Area fixed because it was a double post error *

Thank you...

11 November 2004, 09:05 AM
Gah i hope an admin can fix this double post ;_;

how did that happen >:\

This is the head for the Assassian leader that is in the background below the Spider-Mech.

The back of the head still needs work and so does some of the front of it.

I think lips are fine and the ears are pretty much there as well. I gave her elf-like ears just for the hell of it. I think her skin will be also garyish too. Although she is not an elf ....its just something different ~_~;;

I can use head I guess also for some of the other chars if need be and of course tweak it. Saves time....

LOL~.. omg im sooooooo stupid I thought it was a double post but the top is just a lastest update pic of the whole thread.... How do I fix it that my concept sketch is back up ...

Its looks like i deleted it ;_;

Teeth for the Assassian Leader.
I will reuse these teeth for all the characters because who wants to keep modelling teeth but of course tweak for each char. :\

They're a bit on the vampire side to make the character seem more evil...

Seems very interesting, although I never saw the first sketch with the composition. I like those elfish ears, kind of Warcraft's Night Elves...
Keep working!

If you click on the Challenge Page ( on the top or here it takes you to all the entries, so if you scroll down and click the concept sketch to enlarge you can view it. Sorry I was stupid and deleted because I didn't quite know what I was doing when I first started posting..

Ha about the Warcraft stuff I have my warcraft stuff around my shelf and one of them is that night elf chick box so when I made the teeth I was looking at her teeth for Referance ~_~;;
Although I didn't like their ears too much for the cinematic. I mean their awesome but lack some detail I wanted. In fact most CG elf ears lack a lot of detail. Guess no one cares.....
But blizzard does insane texture / lighting job....

Asn leader Hand WIP

I just noticed I need to fix the top of the hand a increase the thickness of the pinky.. doh ~_~;;

The drawing of the head is because it was empty space I felt like filling ROFL!

11 November 2004, 01:25 AM
Nice hands....

but.... what is the concept???

11 November 2004, 01:28 AM
You mean the layout concept sketch or the person concept sketch?

The layout sketch is located: Challenge Page ( on the bottom.. click to enlarge. I made a mistake and deleted it from thread!

Im not good anymore to draw a concept sketch of the character so im going to try and just do it from my mind. I guess I can try and draw one.. Too much 3D hurts 2D and visa versa.

Nice hands....

but.... what is the concept???

11 November 2004, 04:52 AM (

This is the arm so far.

I tried to keep it as low ploy as I could without destorying detail. heh that reminds me next time to put wire up.... I also did a tiny bit of armor placement because anatomy gets boring. Its really early stages. I think I will also put up my quick sketch of what im getting at. There is also a uber low body placement. Blocking it out.

11 November 2004, 10:41 AM (

This is the ruff torso layout. It took only a few mins to get the loops I wanted and then for a little while some tweaks here and there. The breats are half-cut spheres and thrown on their for now. Still needs lots of work to make it look more real but so far not much time spent. I think I model it a unique way.. I do everything in the front viewport for the beginning. Mapping it all out with append ploy tool... If anyone cares for me to make a small tutorial I guess I would ;p

Did I mention I'm using XSI yet??

11 November 2004, 02:38 PM
Looks great!
just a few suggestions...I think you need to have your concept arts sketches in order for the judges to notice you...otherwise, It would not be taken into account.
I like the human figure, very smooth!
PS: I am driving crazy!!! what does WIP mean???

11 November 2004, 07:05 PM
From what I read I only see that you need to have one concept sketch?
WIP = Work In Progress. [As in not finished completely yet]

I will be putting up more sketches though. I did a few but I really have to make them better before putting them up. They're are so terrible.... ;_;

I was also going to write my story up soon as well..

11 November 2004, 02:42 AM (

More work on the body. Connected what had to be. Lots of work in the torso still needed. The back is in a "what-ever" state, expect maybe the ass..
Shoulder area and neck is temp. I dont even want to show above the hips on the back cuz its a mess ;p

The arm brace has been worked on as well. Connecting between the blades and the brace is done. Now working on the upper layer of brace. Now comes the hard part. In my crappy sketch I think I made it too complex and its not 100% clear how the end may look like. It should be good non-the-less if I put lots of time into it. Keeping metal sometimes smooth is a pain :\

I also tried to draw more composition sketches but those were total crap.

11 November 2004, 08:45 AM (

Just a little bit more work on the Arm Brace also a bit of drawing to clear up the idea some. As you see what im going by is pretty terrible...

Alright time to hit the sack ~_~;;

11 November 2004, 11:32 PM
Im sorry if this line has been used before. It was in my mind but I dont know where I got it from and if I made it up myself that would be cool.. I will take it down if not though :


Chosen by fate, a man becomes a hero, engraved forever into history, the hero shall become a legend.

For decades now our scientist still havenít found the answer to what almost 99% of our universe consists of. It was thought that the missing puzzle lay in what we couldnít see directly - a colorless element which binds our galaxies together: the void of space. Even though people have strong evidence of this "Dark Matter" which came from observations from the effects it had on everything else around it, it was still only a hypothesis.

Humans had also - for the better part - didnít believe in that other species existed. We as a species excluded anything that doesnít revolve around us. We werenít, and never where what we had thought from the beginning of time: that humanity is the center of the universe or play a large role in it. The truth is - like it or not - that we are only an insignificant piece of dust in an ocean of darkness. But what if it was all true? What if Dark Matter, extraterrestrials, and everything we had only believed in, were true? Thesesí things and one man will decide the fate of countless number of lives, not only in our small world but through the depth of space itself.

Just very small piece of the story right now... will continue...

11 November 2004, 12:48 AM
Your story looks very interesting (kind of X Files) but I like it. THe model of your character is going very well, but I would like to see the whole thing in order to analize proportions.
By the way, thanks for the WIP thing!

i like the blades on your character.

11 November 2004, 03:08 AM
Wah lol human contact -_-;;


I guess since there is no way I can see my self drawing a perp correct and awesome scene on paper for my ideas I think it will be best to move my concept to 3D blocks.

Hope that will give people a lot better idea of what im doing then just this character that doesn't give anyone really anything.

I would like to have the style that Deep Fantasy, Shishizaru or Final Fantasy trys to achieve which is a form of Fantasy - Scifi maybe throw in steam punk in the mix??

Lastest update on the body

Still simple. The legs too me is totally not what I want for the end
ITS TUBE city. the knees look a bit funny. I like the feet.

Also very small add-on to the brace. Blots take like 2 secs.. so thrown those on. That parts still looks like a piece of shit. Man so much work :\

Anywas stupid Half-Life 2 came out and im really stupid and going to buy it tomorrow. Sadly I dont think I will work on this for a little while ROFL.

I will try and get the leather started.

I will maybe post some wires later. The back is still total crap so no show there.

11 November 2004, 10:25 AM (

My friend wanted wireframes to show him ploy flow. He wanted 50 screens.. but I give one for now :|

Later when im done I will do 50 maybe...all around.. close up..

11 November 2004, 10:32 AM
hey thats great!... o reallu like that character model. especially the lips... keep it up man :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 10:41 AM
A thank you kindly stranger.
Its funny each person likes one piece of the whole.

All this hard work is for the contest and for my new demo reel because the last one was SUPER SAD and Now I have no JOB wwweee it all rides on this ;_;

11 November 2004, 05:12 PM
hehe sorry for your job thing... I know how it is to work with distractions (half life), even more if you are studying and you have a girlfriend ( :D ). Your model looks fantastic, I agree with the knee thing, it looks strange.
Keep it up!!!

great model!! cool concept too! heheheh and I think HL 2 will be your big problem! don't forget the challenge!!

11 November 2004, 11:15 AM
Thanks very much and I just got stuck in HL2 and then I played some Counter-Strike: Source but that got boring pretty quickly.

Its a really damn good single player right now... if I keep getting stuck then I guess it would keep me coming back to doing this contest ;p

Im going to try and force myself to do half contest and half HL2

EDIT: Anyone know any really good sites that explain COMPOSITION in depth?

great model!! cool concept too! heheheh and I think HL 2 will be your big problem! don't forget the challenge!!
