thats really awsome great job did u model the background to it looks real? very coollove the textures.

11-17-2004, 09:05 PM
Very well compositing. Great model but one tiny crit: chrome mat on the hydraulic pumps (or whatff they are called) looks too perfect if you compare it with the other (fantastic) dirt on the model.

Saw the model already on 3dk but this is better (composition)

11-17-2004, 09:12 PM
wow...thats amazing

11-17-2004, 09:33 PM

Super work! Great Idea!!!

11-17-2004, 10:17 PM
This is great, i'd love to see him animated :)

11-17-2004, 10:56 PM
OMG thats freeking awesome. Is the background also 3D? Or is it a picture..

10 stars for you.

11-17-2004, 11:53 PM
oh my god!

really nice idea and amazing modeling and textures!
great work!

11-18-2004, 12:28 AM
thats really creative and cool, man ..the texturing is wicked as well as the model ...great peice man all the best and i voted 5 for this man :)

11-18-2004, 12:40 AM
Great idea, nicely textured, but the chrome hydraulic pumps things look too clean compared to the rest of the model, also the shadows look a bit strange.

Damn, imagine crossing that thing in the street...

11-18-2004, 02:05 AM
Personally I think the chrome is alright since that part would be slide into the other so rust couldn't start on it, maybe a grease line or something would help. The only thing that bothers me is that the background picture is almost the same value as the machine so it begins to blend in. Great concept.

11-18-2004, 04:22 AM
the fact that the model blends in seamlessly with the background doesnt bother me at all ;).Its friggin awesome :eek:

11-18-2004, 05:02 AM
This is very good. Sorry, I can offer no critique. Just my admiration.

11-18-2004, 06:26 AM
I'm not saying that edge blending is bothering me, I'm saying that much of the machine's value is similar to the photo behind making the machine hard to see.

11-18-2004, 06:40 AM
I like the compostion alot:thumbsup:

11-18-2004, 07:03 AM
great work !! !i 'have see your animation ,and i like it! !
there is a reel things to do with him ! ! !
excellent concept! ! !anothers shoots qith more details please ! ! !

11-18-2004, 07:52 AM
Haa... you definately made my day with thisone!!!
You should offer the concept to the "belarus" traktor factory (i wonder if they still make these machines) :P
You got my stars :thumbsup:

Come to think of it... that model would actually work even... crazy

11-18-2004, 07:57 AM
Great jog dude! Iti is realy amasing. Great concept:thumbsup:

11-18-2004, 08:08 AM
incredible job!!! i see this image in 3dkingdom (only the traktor). very good composition, the only crits, are that for me the shadow above the traktor are so strong. also decressing a little...

11-18-2004, 09:27 AM
excellent work!
im wondering how a little dof might look?

11-18-2004, 09:37 AM
looking at it again ignore my last comment,it looks better without.

11-18-2004, 09:43 AM
very cool man, nice idea. :)

11-18-2004, 10:04 AM
Shiva, MoLoToK !!! :thumbsup: :deal:

11-18-2004, 10:06 AM
that's a really good idea. and technically perfect.

11-18-2004, 10:18 AM
Really a great work, i like it a lot :thumbsup: .


11-18-2004, 10:30 AM realy great, I like very much... the integration is perfect...CONGRATULATIONS ;-)

11-18-2004, 10:41 AM
i'm totally speechless.

11-18-2004, 11:45 AM
I found some convenient words for this picture:

11-18-2004, 12:01 PM
very nice! :thumbsup:

11-18-2004, 12:57 PM
Excellent concept, very unique!!

Beautiful work, model, light and textures.

The wheel on the left is nicely textured but I think it's the part that looks most fake. The rest of the model is gorgeous.

Perhaps a little more work on the light would make it look perfect.

Very nice!

11-18-2004, 04:12 PM
WOW that is just amazing. Respect

11-18-2004, 10:02 PM
Man, this is fantastic! I'd give something to see it animated!

Front! :bowdown:


11-19-2004, 01:15 AM
So well done and combined with the photo. It's photo, isn't it? It's great! The texturing is awesome.

11-19-2004, 11:46 AM

but but...




my god...

is it animable?

11-19-2004, 11:48 AM
Thanks for comments :-)
Chrome its realy alright couse of sliding, as a KevinCCAD told.
And BackGround its a Photo.
I cant show animation couse our studio dont have time for this. I only have some technikal tests about movement and compositing with real video (3d camera traking).
But I create little demo:


11-19-2004, 03:31 PM
:applause: ,:applause: and more :applause: . Great work.

11-19-2004, 04:45 PM
this design is very cool!!:thumbsup:

11-20-2004, 04:20 AM
I love your idea and it is also very well executed! Good job.

11-20-2004, 04:52 AM
cool idea, u got it man :thumbsup:

11-21-2004, 10:57 AM
wow that's really amazing...r really love your compositing work...environment and 3d stuff fits perfectly!

11-22-2004, 02:18 PM
Everything is nice except the shadows.
As the environment implies, the weather is cloudy without sun. that means there's no strong directional light source outside, and the shadows should be fairly light and soft, without such clear boundries.

sorry pal. :P

11-23-2004, 04:56 AM
thats really awsome great job did u model the background to it looks real? very coollove the textures.
LOL... sorry I just had to laugh :p Its called composition, the trackter is fake done in 3d and he put it on a real photo. He also did one hell of a job. The lighting is nearly the same as the photoshop and the shaders look great. Works well together. Good job

11-23-2004, 07:27 AM
oh I haven't got such great idea for a long time
why couldn't I think out these :banghead:

11-23-2004, 11:33 AM
Really good integration.:applause:
As others "cg talkers" i only can see one small problem with the sadows. I agree they must be less intense for this cloudy day, and smaller the area radio.
I hope you can understand me, i'm spanish and my english is not good.
For the rest, very good job, really good, great textures and very patient with the modeling.
Two questions:
How many time it takes to you? (modeling, texturing and ilumination)
What render do you used?

11-23-2004, 06:28 PM
great Idea and work!

I love it!

11-23-2004, 06:49 PM
impressive!Totally awsome idea and superb work!

Frigging coolest/best model in ages!!Right on the desktop now!

Keep on trucking that tractor!!

11-23-2004, 11:36 PM
This is a superb concept, Yegor! Be proud of your creativity! I can't wait to see it animated!!

11-24-2004, 02:52 AM
Really reminds me of a Chaos marine Defiler.

awsome stuff

11-24-2004, 09:28 AM
Очень забавно! Здорово прям... :-)

Very funny

11-24-2004, 09:36 AM
Wow holy shit, this looks awesome :-))) Compositing is quite good, and especially I like the wheel :-)

Man , I'm from Ukraine too !!!

11-24-2004, 01:19 PM
I would love to see it moving !!! quite a show it would be !!! :bounce: nice job. And nice wheel.

11-24-2004, 02:04 PM
I would love to see the wireframe of this spider-tracktor. I think it is very realistic but some wireframes would really make me sleep calmly

11-24-2004, 04:16 PM
Привет, супер, ну акк всегда.

zico| (

11-24-2004, 05:49 PM
What a cool idea! Just a few things that I think would help sell the image.

Overall the monster has too much contrast. Compare the key side and fill side of your monster to the key/fill sides of the "shack" behind it. The underside lip of the "shack" roof is much lighter than the underside shadows of your monster's legs. The sky is overcast, light is bouncing everywhere, so it will creep in the crevices more. The shadows on the asphalt are too dark too. Compare them to the shadows of the crevices of the building and doorways. The main shadow under the monster's belly should be much softer.

Great job, very clever. Really stirs the imagination.

11-24-2004, 07:56 PM
But it looks better with other different colour of the buiding.

11-25-2004, 12:46 AM
i really like the image... my only critique is that the shadows dont look natural, they look like they are lit by indoor lights not by the sun behind the clouds... try making the shadow a little less promenant. very nice image though

sorry if this has already been said i only looked at the image

11-25-2004, 12:30 PM
Great and original modeling , I like it very much , your creativity is fantastic .
Compliments !


11-25-2004, 01:21 PM
very cool texture and compositing, very good idea

11-25-2004, 04:19 PM
wow, awesome modeling! The whole thing looks real.

11-25-2004, 10:07 PM
Brilliant picture!!
I really love the whole thing...the textures are perfect..the compositing flawless...and the animation is also really nice...
Great work..keep us posted

11-26-2004, 07:48 PM
Pretty clever idea and the design work is realistic enough to be believable. Solid modeling and texture is good too. And it seem to fit inside the picture well as in integration. It would be nice to see other views if you haven't already posted them.

My only crit is the shadow beneath the cockpit area...I think it's too strong and sqauarish shape shadow too defined.

Other than that....a great effort.


11-26-2004, 11:23 PM
great idea :thumbsup:

11-27-2004, 05:16 AM

Trying to answer some questions.
1) Used render - Brazil r/s
2) time to complette - 1 month totaly, with animation.
3) Texturing - heh.. I tried some methods and find very usefull DarkTrees.. i just Paint over model by vertex paint were i want a rusty metal or oil or paint.. its was finny and easy! and NO problem with UVW maping.. but some parts textured with photos.
4) Yep, shadow its no so well.. you al rigth. (
5) I have animation composed with real video. Looks Cool but i stoped on it couse need to work (some time I need to eat to), so no now it project Frozen and waiting for sponsor. ))) if u have one - inform them about me. ;D
