View Full Version : Mole Warrrior, Pete Sussi (3D)

01 January 2005, 08:09 AM (

Title: Mole Warrrior
Name: Pete Sussi
Country: United States
Software: LightWave 3D, Photoshop

This is the mole warrior. It is based on the wonderful art of Feng Zhu. i used it as a test to see how close i can make a exsisting design without giving myself the luxury of modifying the tough areas.

here is the original feng design to see how close i got:

Nice render, Cool character.

01 January 2005, 07:25 AM
Great character design! I really like it. I wish there would be more characters which have as much originality as yours.

01 January 2005, 10:21 AM
Very real, feels like you oculd go in and pick him up. His facial expression is brilliant adds so much to the comedy value.

On a seperate note can I ask how you posted this pic. I wanted to post an image but you need to have over 50 posts :(

Again great work, nice to see it was done in Lightwave.


01 January 2005, 03:07 AM
ali_3dartist: it is all painted texture maps, no shaders. i did add a slight procedual bump to blend some of teh seems.

peted: thanks for the kind words. i just posted restrictions i know of?

01 January 2005, 11:16 PM
