Latest Update: Final Image: Conquistadors : new Incas' God
http://cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/9/5660/5660_1116811838_medium.jpg (http://cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/9/5660/5660_1116811838_large.jpg)

Here's my final image for this challenge. I wanted to represent a scene where an Inca Priest is kneeling in front of a Conquistador believing he is a God. He gives him a sceptre, symbol of power. The sun falls behind the Inca pyramid to symbolize the fall of the Inca civilisation. I wanted to include each elements which made believe to Inca that Conquistadors were God : coming from sea with big boat, with horses and gun. Now the inca priest is kneelling in front of an human while a few time ago he venerated Inca's god symbolized by statue behind the conquistador.

My main idea is to show an Inca Priest (worshipper of Moon) brandishing an ancient artefact against a servant who disobeyed an order. The priest is punishing him (transforming him to a werewolf), showing him the true power of the Moon, their master. The action may take place in a temple during an eclipse (not sure of that).

First part of modeling ... started with a cube and only used polygonal modelisation ... the priest is not finished at all !

... still work on the Priest ...

03-28-2005, 12:47 PM
@ jddog : Yes we are (crazy):)
@ e-maje,pitiwazou : thanks :thumbsup:

03-28-2005, 01:08 PM
hey mate its coming along nicely ... but too me the eye's look alittle wierd, i think it might be the bidge of the nose

03-28-2005, 08:23 PM
That started very good my friend... with some minor changes, that's will be perfect...
Ears seem a little bit plate and maybe too small, and not so high... the armpits don't seem to go up enough.
The higher part of the nose seems too broad, too powerful, whereas the end of the nostrils seems to go up a little too much.
The thorax seems ttoo flat on the front, making it resemble to an action man :scream:
But it's only of small details, the unit is already very coherent and splendid, good courage for the continuation. :thumbsup:

03-28-2005, 08:43 PM
this is the first time i see your challenge, good concept, the modeling of the first characters is good but you will be added more detail on the body and affined the muscles, good work
aller frenchie donne le meilleur:thumbsup:

... i changed a little bit the shape of the head ....

03-29-2005, 06:51 AM
@MDN67 : Thanks, until now i just worked on the head (reason is bellow)
@Lemog : Thanks, for the thorax i get some problems with my reference images, i see two references (on books) and they don't put the same number of muscles so i give up for some hours this part ! I'll go to a shop to see a book of anatomy as i don't want to make a man "Frankeinstein" :) ...
@eddieellis,jddog : Thanks

03-29-2005, 06:59 PM

good luck !! dont stop !!

03-30-2005, 06:48 AM
Good work Fred, but i think that the incas was the servant of the sun ;)

03-30-2005, 06:52 AM

... a quick test to see how the necklace goes on the Priest ... will make some modifications later ...

03-31-2005, 10:10 AM
@bouledpue : ... the concept is not definitive but one of the idea was to do the scene during an eclipse while the moon "eats" the sun (so appears to defeat the sun) to show how easily some people can turn over (change) their belief in favor of the most powerfull ... this will evoluate as a have lot's of variations in my head ...
@Lemog, gra7 : Thanks !!!

03-31-2005, 06:53 PM
Yes, i like the idea of the eclipse.

04-01-2005, 05:58 AM
Your idea of eclipse agree me too... to following then :thumbsup: Have a good day :wavey:

... an evolution of my initial concept ... still take place in the same place but in a different scene ... here the discovery of a new pre-colombian tribe (Inca) by explorer, ... the tribe tought they were God (as for example they had horses) ... in relation to the history of the discovery of the american continent ...

... i've added some details to the head ...

04-02-2005, 11:20 AM
Hi, Fred76!
Glad you're with us!
Well, I see you've got prety fast progress in your project.
Human just great, but for horse I suggest that you bend it's rear legs backward (oposite direction). In other aspects - looks cool, mate http://www.cgtalk.com/images/icons/icon13.gif

04-02-2005, 12:07 PM
Hey Fred76, welcome to the equine modellers group!!

I really like your idea. The original idea of the werewold really had my imagination going. Is there any way that you might still keep the idea of the werewolf around? I'd really like to see how you tackle the werewolf as your human models were looking really good. I particularly have to congratulate you on the facial for the Inca. They had really strong noses but the rest were soft edges. :thumbsup:

... i modified the legs to match better with horses' legs ...

04-03-2005, 10:58 AM
@aleinlatin: Thanks, the werewolf idea is not dead at all ;)... i'll put it if i get time enough to do it ... my latest concept is maybe not my definitive one ... my definitive will depend on how many time i'll have to finish my scene ...
@Deryk: Thanks, ... the horse is still a "work in progress" ... but working on it ... i've started the modification you talked about in my latest post ...

04-03-2005, 11:00 AM
that's a great model of horse! I will be doing one as well, so I'll keep an eye on you!

the second idea is siply great! I love the fact that more and more challengers are looking in to history to find ideas!!! rather than to make robots and R.R.Tolkins [no disrespect though...] characters!!!

keep going!

04-03-2005, 11:04 AM
Ave Fred76,
Nice work man, especially the neclace!!! Waiting for your textures!!!
Good luck!!!

04-03-2005, 02:11 PM

04-03-2005, 06:49 PM

Glad that my suggestions helped a little:)
Wanna see your next updates!

Neeno, Miezis : Thanks :thumbsup:

04-03-2005, 08:16 PM
Nice concept with that Inca think goiing on. really nice The body and the face of the man is a little too flat in my eyes. But the horse is good.



04-04-2005, 06:07 AM
Nice evolution for your project... congrats for the horse, it seem very well... I'm waiting your work on the conquistador's face. And don't forget that we imagine his face, long fine and angular as a very proud Spanish :bounce:

04-04-2005, 01:49 PM
@crapple : thanks, the body is not finished at all ... miss many muscles in the centre part of the body ... actually focus on the top of the character ... :thumbsup:
@Lemog: Not shure it will look like a spanish man ... but a fat vicious man certainly ;)

04-04-2005, 10:27 PM
Good work! I love the cap. Just a notice: your hand are too small and too flat. Good luck!

04-05-2005, 05:27 AM
I agree with Ke V2 for the hands... and for the helmet, no crits... but I don't want the same to walk in the street :scream: hihi... good continuation !

04-05-2005, 06:06 AM
hey there ... i agree about the hands.. and for some reason the helmet looks too big for his head.. other then great model.. really great design for the helmet too.. great stuff

04-05-2005, 09:31 AM
@Ke V2,Lemog : Thanks, you are right i'll correct that ... (not in the next capture as it is already done but in the following)
@ Neeno : Thanks, i've made the helmet a little smaller to see if it's better ...

... i've started the modelisation of the bony of the priest ... i need to round mode the muscles but it's just the beginning ...

04-05-2005, 10:12 AM
Effectively, the body start well... just the buttocks should be increased :bounce:

04-05-2005, 10:47 AM
I'm not fan fo the proportion of the body but is it a good job !!

fellicitation ;)

04-05-2005, 11:05 AM
The body is very good:thumbsup: , add him clothes. This picture will be great!:buttrock:

04-05-2005, 01:00 PM
lookin better dude.. keep it up

04-06-2005, 06:45 AM
Looking really nice. Remember that the Incas were really short people (1.5, 1.6 max) but as you show it really well, they were very fit.

Hey, let me know how you go with your fat guy, I just stated Sancho himself, who is fat too. You gonna put a beard on the man?

Keep it up, improving a lot.

... modified the hands to be less flat ...

04-06-2005, 08:06 AM
@Lemog: ... i've changed the hands ... next will be for the buttocks ... Thanks for the comments ... sometimes when you spend many time on an object it's difficult to see which part are wrong ;)

@pitiwazou : ... Thanks ...euh about the proportions ... i took as references my beautiful body (;) ) so according to you i think must stop beer ... just a little one :beer: ...

@aleinlatin: Well both men will be certainly little (an athletic one and a fat man for contrast) ... i'm not sure of the true of the size but i won't make giants nor Pigmee ... for the beard i'll make some tries as i don't want the beard to hide the expression of this face ... maybe a thin beard ...

@Neeno: Thanks

@SaintT: Thanks, clothes will be the next addition to the character after a correct the shape of the character ...

04-06-2005, 08:45 AM
This is not a monster!!

I like it!

Good way!!Keep on!

But interesting for me the modelling steps..you combinate the big details with small details..Hm..

04-07-2005, 05:22 AM
What to say ? very good progress for the Inca Fred :thumbsup:
Just one remark, if we compares with his total musculature, the thighs are still a little thin, but this is not so disturbing, especially which he will have some clothes... good job gars :bounce:

04-08-2005, 05:14 AM
Hey... you work like a fool mate... so fast :thumbsup:
Just one remark for the conquistador's face... I find that the nose don't make very spanish...
we more easily imagines a conquistador with a fine face, longiligne and a little bit angular... bt if it's your choice... go man...

Je vais louper ton avancée pendant 1 semaine, alors good courage à toi pendant ce temps, see you soon Fred :wavey:

ça commence à être bien sympa par ici :)

Bonne suite ;)

04-09-2005, 11:43 AM
Nice start, prefer the man with the beard too. Bonne chance :thumbsup:

04-12-2005, 02:24 AM
Dude! Very nice modelling. Geez, wish I could model so quickly. I've been stuck on Sancho's face for a bit trying to get the fat cheeks happening.

With your beard, I think that it is coming along well. remember that you have to dirty it up heaps as the Spaniards of the time were quite dirty. it can come to be a very nice contrast between the Inca (golden skinned and clean, no hair, etc) and the Spaniard (fat, slobbery, dirty and pale).

Great stuff man!!!

04-13-2005, 11:35 AM
Good work Fred. I like the design of your characters

04-29-2005, 12:00 AM
I can only say WOW! :applause:
Your progress has been great. Obviously been checking a lot of National Geographics as your models for the Maya and Inca people and their belonging are quite accurate, trust me, I come from those areas and always have loved to pay lot of attention of them.

@ gulliver3 , Elendil le Grand , bouledpue, pissaro : Thanks :thumbsup:

@ilusiondigital : Thanks , the unicorn is based on the horse i've made.

@Lemog : Thanks, i don't think i'll put as many details as i wanted because i need more time and it would be finish only for christmas ;)

05-06-2005, 01:59 PM
You don't need to put much details if your ship is not view in close-up... that's certainly sufficient... just good textures and run buddy... :thumbsup:

... making some tests to integrate the foreground vegetation ...

05-11-2005, 12:26 PM
Boudiou... ça avance plutôt bien mec... Very beautiful your vegetation mate... :thumbsup:

J'vais le faire en français, j'aurais moins de mal...
Le seul truc qui me gêne, c'est le soleil... 2 points :
- l'effet étoilé fait trop pensé à une abérration optique... due à un appareil photo par exemple... il faudrait peut-être une auréole plus diffuse...
- il fait top pile-poil au-dessus de la pyramide... pour une question de compo, il vaudrait mieut le remonter diagonalement, ou carrément le descendre diagonalement vers la droite, de manière à ce que cette pyramide vienne mordre le soleil... effet d'autant meilleur que le halo du soleil sera plus grand et plus diffus... à mon avis :D

And now, I try it in english just for smile :
Only one element disturb me in your scene, the sun... with two points to describe :
- the star effect make me feel to an optical camera distortion... I think that will be better to have something more diffuse...
- the sun appear for me a little bit too much positionned at the top of the pyramid... certainly better if you move it more low... just behind the pyramid... certainly a good effect...

Courage, c'est la dernière ligne droite... :bounce:

05-15-2005, 01:37 PM

... i've modified the light effect, and added the priest to the picture ...

05-16-2005, 04:33 AM
Yep... good update man... the sun is really better... just remain the position... but it's certainly a real choice to place it exactly in the middle... ça bosse fort ici... faut pas laisser refroidir alors :scream:
Vas-y Fred :thumbsup:

05-16-2005, 06:13 AM
... thanks Lemog :thumbsup: ... for the sun i'll see after i've finished my master as my biggest worry is that my render fails very often due to the big size and my computer ... i must make between 3 and 4 render before one is finish (many problems with the post effects of the software !) ... and moreover tomorrow i can't work on the project so i'll try to finish before the deadline !

I've too some problems with the post effects in the full res of my pic... the only one solution for me was to render these effects alone... and composite them after in Photoshop... certainly due to the low power of my computer...
I cross my fingers for you Fred :buttrock:

Thanks everybody for your help doing my picture and your comments :thumbsup: ,
i haven't access to the submit page many minutes before deadline so i couldn't submit all my pictures:sad: , here the final image, i hadn't enough time to finish it as i would but i'll certainly take some time to finish it one day :)


05-19-2005, 01:54 PM
C vraiment sympa :)
Dommage qu'on voit pas plus le bateau ... D'ailleurs je crois que l'éclairage ne met pas assez en valeur ta scène ;)

05-19-2005, 03:50 PM
Vraiment bravo... dommage que tu n'es pas eu plus de temps pour terminer... vraiment beaucoup de boulot... 2 persos, 1 cheval, un navire... des statues et un décor de terre et de mer... un sacré challenge... et tu t'en ais vraiment bien tiré je trouve...

I hope you can take time to finish your very beautiful and interesting piece... then... it's not finish but anyway, congratulation Frédéric... you can be proud :thumbsup:

05-20-2005, 07:00 AM
@Elendil : Merci, pour l'éclairage j'ai été pris de court (d'ailleurs a la fin je croyais presque que c'était un challenge de speed modeling tellement j'avais pas le temps pour faire ce que je voulais ;) ) ...
@Lemog : Merci, on se donne rendez vous pour le prochain challenge ;) ... pourquoi pas sur ML d'ailleurs ! Ca m'a entraîné, c'est le but ... je vois déjà tout plein d'erreurs a ne pas refaire pour le prochain challenge !

Here's my final image for this challenge. I wanted to represent a scene where an Inca Priest is kneeling in front of a Conquistador believing he is a God. He gives him a sceptre, symbol of power. The sun falls behind the Inca pyramid to symbolize the fall of the Inca civilisation. I wanted to include each elements which made believe to Inca that Conquistadors were God : coming from sea with big boat, with horses and gun. Now the inca priest is kneelling in front of an human while a few time ago he venerated Inca's god symbolized by statue behind the conquistador.

05-23-2005, 12:44 PM
Hey Frederic,
I like the addition of the conquistador to your image:thumbsup: , tells more of a story to your image. I think the tallship is a little off perspective or size wise though. Good job on this and good luck.

05-25-2005, 10:26 AM
Thanks mmoir :thumbsup:
Special thanks to the CGTalk team who acted quick in front of problems that some of us had to submit some minutes before the deadline :thumbsup:
