Challenge Page (

Latest Update: Final Image: Psycho Girl and The Mutant Kangaroo (

The story:

This is just another day in the life of this twisted girl. She uses her big lollipop as instrument of command while his big servant, the Mutant Kangaroo steals food to feed the bastard :)
In the background you can see her most recent victim: a hot-dog/candies seller with his broken car. The Kangaroo is a good guy/girl/whatever and he looks back sorry for the poor guy. But she don't want to look back. She is the master! She just want to run away to eat all this food that fills the kangaroo's pouch :)
She already started, as you can see in the mustard in her fingers and mouth. She is the devil! Nothing can stop this ugly kid, a food hunter with no mercy! Be careful, be very careful when you walk alone in some park. The Psycho girl can be looking at your food and ready to hit you right in the face because of you chocolate bar!

Ok guys, that's the end!
This is my final image. I know that the image is not perfect and that some people don't like the subject and some options I took but this is the great thing about art in general: different interpretations from different observers. I think I reached my personal goal for this image and surely with more time I can improve it but I'm glad I finished it even without a lot of time in the last weeks. The best thing for me is that I had a lot of fun creating this image and I'm pretty sure some more people will laugh looking at it and this is priceless :)
Thanks a lot for all your support and suggestions that helped me to improve the image.
Congratulations for all of you guys that finished your works and shared some information posting "how to" to help others.

Now I can rest and move the rest of my things to the new apartment! :)

I hope I can have some time tonight to create some more mini-tutos and post some more information about the image.

Cya and good luck to everybody!

Cant wait to see what you do anyways, and Good luck! :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 08:25 AM (

Well, as I'm going to try to make my work in the few hours of spare time that I have, forgive me for my quick and dirty sketches :) I really have no time enough to make a clean up and I hope you can understand more or less my idea based on it. Here we go...

03 March 2005, 08:26 AM (

some more...

03 March 2005, 08:28 AM (


03 March 2005, 08:45 AM
HIHIHIHH!:) the little gitl is so nice and the creature is so desperated..Very nice..i think this will be great!

03 March 2005, 08:47 AM (

In the MachineFlesh Challenge the subject of my work was a little too heavy and deep in the meaning. So, for this challenge I decided to relax and have some fun :)

Ok, here's my story:

My scene will be a comic scene, showing a little fat girl (the master) commanding her big friend, a mutant Kangaroo (servant). Instead of use her servant for some noble cause she just want to use him to steal food :)
She uses her big lollipop as instrument of command while his big servant steals some hot dogs. In the foreground you will see the big mutant kangaroo running away carrying his master. He have some hot dogs in his hands and runs under the command of the little bastard, LOL. In the background you will see broken hot dog car and a lot of hot dogs in the ground and the owner of the car swearing at the "criminals".

Instead of use cartoon characters, my intention is to make a scene with realistic (but caricature like) characters and my focus will be in the movement and facial expressions.
Will be great to create some detailed characters in a different and comic context and I'll exercise two things I like a lot: realism and cartoon.

I hope I can have some fun doing this scene :)


03 March 2005, 08:58 AM
great idea,this is going to be a cool piece. :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 09:00 AM
fantastic!!! very powerful and expressive :bounce:

03 March 2005, 09:06 AM
Hahaha... I like that... and I know you into your sketches... this subject is yours :buttrock:

03 March 2005, 09:06 AM
Great idea ! I hope you will make it as cool as it looks to be ! But I think this will be not a problem for U !:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 09:08 AM
Awesome idea Kris!

Hope you get to finish it

03 March 2005, 09:17 AM
Hi Chris......This will be quite the pair........very rich in flavor.....The fun aspect and the realistic toon (caricature) style will be just the right favorite too........looking forward to seeing you bring this to the 3D World in style......:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 09:48 AM
promise a wonderful work... nothing to say now, just excellent caricature and sketch... I imagine that your work will rock again ...



03 March 2005, 09:53 AM
great idea.. should bring alot of laughs..
sketches show alot of detail... can't wait to see the kangaroo in 3d ;p

03 March 2005, 09:54 AM
knowing ur style this is going to be brilliant ! :D ahahhaha

03 March 2005, 12:28 PM
These concept images are awesome, that fat chick is hillarious as you can see the bully in her design. I also like your idea for the scene too!

03 March 2005, 12:42 PM
Hehe the idea is funny, We can already feel hte dynamism in the sketches, great style, i hope too we'll see the final piece !

03 March 2005, 12:44 PM
Great sketch man.... looks like an old girl friend on mine...... lol

03 March 2005, 12:53 PM
looks like an old girl friend on mine...... lol

:| dude that's just sad...:D

nice to see ya here antropus...hey, the mods are actually participating [i mean, can they win the prizes?] or it's a just for fun thing going on here?

love you're sketches man


03 March 2005, 01:11 PM
Cool that you liked the sketches, dudes :)
Thanks a lot!


Take a look in the rules session. As we moderators are not employees of the sponsors neither CGTalk/CGNetworks/Ballistic, yes, we can participate and even win prizes. We are just users but with a little bit more of work to keep the "house" clean and nice :)
But man, seriously, I'm not participating to win prizes. The fun and the visibility that a challenge like this can give to you is just priceless! I got lots of new contacts in the industry because of my work for the past challenge. This is the best part ;)


03 March 2005, 01:17 PM
That would be soo cool, to be able to get a job through contacts here. Considering I live in Singapore, which is not so developed in this industry, this is probably the best way to get work.

Personally I like the sketch with the monster the best, there can be an interesting contrast between the girl and the monster.


03 March 2005, 01:27 PM

no problem dude. If you can do a good job here and have your work among the winners/short-listed I'm sure some company will contact you. I'm from Brazil and our CG industry there is kind of small too, more about TV advertisements... but hey, take this challenge as a great opportunity to improve your work, have fun and make even more contacts :)


03 March 2005, 01:42 PM
Good luck to you :)

03 March 2005, 01:42 PM
Not bad whole !
You draw really well !
Bravo ! :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 02:10 PM
Hi Antropus,

Very good the sketsch. I am already imagining them in Zbrush. Will you use him?

[] ' s

03 March 2005, 03:29 PM
pretty cool, best of luck.

Expecting a gr8 end result :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 03:59 PM
I've been looking for a couple of hours for a bizarre and crazy idea here, and at last! Thanks, best wishes!

P.S. Don't be stingy on progress details - your machineflesh thread was just awesome :)

03 March 2005, 04:25 PM
You for here also?( you should be thinking that ) hehehehe...:) Great idea, man. I want to participate also... Good luck!:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 05:24 PM

03 March 2005, 06:00 AM

After seeing your Machineflesh I have become a fan of your work. Can't wait to see how this comes out.

By the way, when's Barnyard going to be finished?


03 March 2005, 07:55 AM (

Here's a step-by-step showing the beginning of Psycho Girl's modeling in ZBrush. I'll redo the teeth, since this teeth is from another model I did before the challenge. I used it just as layout.

03 March 2005, 08:14 AM
your work in machine flesh is very impressive! and I'm sure with this new challenge you can do it again!

03 March 2005, 08:15 AM
hullo there kris....thats a good Zb pictorial tutorial for me :).......! like the concept and the damn god sketches too.....:)

03 March 2005, 08:23 AM
Good work.
In my mind it would be better, if there were less spiral in the lollipop.But it isn't so important.

03 March 2005, 08:24 AM

Great start my friend!! I can't wait to see that huges eyeglasses on her :D

I wish you a lot of fun in this challenge, because lucky and talent you have enough ;)

keep rocking Krish!!

03 March 2005, 09:51 AM

03 March 2005, 10:37 AM

03 March 2005, 01:25 PM
Hey, thanks a lot for the comments guys.
I'm working in her hands, hair and clothes right now. Probably in the next post she will have some more improvements in the textures/modeling also. Still a loooong way to go.


03 March 2005, 02:17 PM
I had done once an ugly little girl too, but yours is ugly and scary.:D
The texture is well done also.

03 March 2005, 02:38 PM

03 March 2005, 03:14 PM
Ave Antropus,
Always the winner? The sketches and the models are great!!! You are my favorite... Though you said you don't want to be this time such deep as the machineflesh challenge, I am amazed by your works for this challenge deeply indeed!!! Materials and the action is over the top again...Keep good working "inspiring us in 3d" going!!!

03 March 2005, 03:17 PM
awesome work, very funny concept and the modelling thus far is great, you should certainly be in the running again, by the looks of it.

03 March 2005, 03:23 PM
Why do i want to stop the challenge?.... I don't know :shrug:

Excellent beginning, you rock man :buttrock:

03 March 2005, 03:28 PM

03 March 2005, 03:51 PM
Absolutely incredible.The texturing looks great too.

03 March 2005, 04:18 PM

no problem dude. If you can do a good job here and have your work among the winners/short-listed I'm sure some company will contact you. I'm from Brazil and our CG industry there is kind of small too, more about TV advertisements... but hey, take this challenge as a great opportunity to improve your work, have fun and make even more contacts :)


You're from Brazil? But your name sounds rather Indian! In any case, cheers to that, and the future!

03 March 2005, 05:36 PM
It's so good to see you here for this new challenge :bounce:
i learnt a lot from your thread in the machine flesh ... thank you :thumbsup:

Very nice start - like the idea :D

Good luck

03 March 2005, 05:51 PM
hahah! she's an ANGEL! :scream:
nice job Kris!

03 March 2005, 06:05 PM
Great model so far. ZBrush is amazing. It seems so easy to make amodel in it. Anyway, back on topic.The modelling is going well. I think you may want to look at her proportions, they seem off to me. It dosent seem like an overly fat torso to me, other than that, it looks good. Keep it up. I'll keep an eye onthis.

03 March 2005, 06:44 PM
:buttrock: u rock, loved your machineflesh entry. so far even this entry looks award winning to me, anyways best of luck. exccelent so far, keep Zbrushing. :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 07:28 PM
I like your idea ... very "stephen king" style ..the sketches are really great..
about your 3d ..well .. how to say .. amazing!
she is quite impressive she looks like a boy ..all she needs is the hair
ah ..maybe she will look better without the glasses's just my opinion
keep it up!

03 March 2005, 05:24 AM (

Thanks a lot for your comments guys! Keep it coming please :)
Here's another update. The hair is very wip, with no textures nor a good shader yet. Her body is just posed but not ZBrushed yet. I agree about the glasses but with glasses she looks much more Psycho and Nerd :)

I hope you like her.

03 March 2005, 05:25 AM
Nice dude really nice :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Keep going your on a very good track...

03 March 2005, 05:31 AM
Awesome start Kris!

She has a lot of personality , you should animate her when this challenge is over :)

03 March 2005, 05:52 AM
Awesome start Kris!
She has a lot of personality , you should animate her when this challenge is over :)
Hey Ali,

I wish I could... :D
for the Machineflesh I did everything thinking about a still image and I'm doing it again. The difference is that I spent a lot of time creating and modeling objects that will not be seen in the final image. This time I decided to work thinking about the camera angle. Some of the objects are working just for the final angle (hair, part of the clothes). As the final work have to be a still image I decided to work in ZBrush to avoid problems rendering in another package because of lack of memory to render millions of polygons :)
This way I can keep the focus in my idea and forget hardware/software limitations that can take a lot of time to set in a perfect way.


03 March 2005, 06:15 AM
thats one ugly (weird) loking kid, love it and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 06:18 AM
agreed man , i am doing it the same way. You can always remodel for animation later on :)

03 March 2005, 08:44 AM
the clothes look great dude..

great character... reminds me something out of a twsited version of alice in wonderland

03 March 2005, 08:57 AM

Man, my intention is to create something with a cool visual appealing and some of my inspiration come from "Alice in Wonderland" and "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". Without to use any reference I just started to work in my scene but you know what? I discovered that my brain registered the character "Veruca" from Willy Wonka as the perfect twisted girl that I need for my work :)

I just figured out after to see this image searching on the net today:

Even the clothes are VERY similar but was not intentional. Is something like a memory that I have since I saw this movie, about 26 years ago, at age of 7 (the movie was released at 1971, a great coincidence since is the same year I was born :) ).
Man, is not our unconscious just amazing???

Cheers :)

03 March 2005, 09:03 AM
Really cool textures on this girl!

I really like the ugliness of the mouth, I just gonna have to go backtracking through this thread! I'm going to learn a lot from you.

03 March 2005, 11:04 AM
hi......nice to see you join here....i think we shall be waiting for another GREAT WORK..

the idea and the model looks nice as always...and the textures are realy good tooo

keep on good working :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 11:49 AM (

For the people that are curious about the modeling process in ZBrush, this is the way that I choose to create the Psycho Girl. I used ZSpheres for the body and hair because ZSpheres have internal joints that can be rotated to make easy to pose your character. I still can change these parts just by rotating the joints.

03 March 2005, 11:51 AM (

At any time I can just hit "a" to see a low poly mesh generated by the ZSpheres (all quad polys) and adjust it independently of the ZSpheres. I can also subdivide the generated mesh in order to add more details.

03 March 2005, 11:57 AM (

Here's the current stage of my work after some more hours of work. Yeah, looks like some people are VERY fast using ZBrush...I'm not :) I enjoy every single step of modeling with Z and is very cool to model, paint textures, rig and render in the same environment and almost at same time.

The DOF I did in photoshop using the depth map generated in ZBrush. A mini tutorial is coming ;)


03 March 2005, 12:05 PM
I always liked the way u are presenting your steps of work man...I also like the aproach u have on the your work man...and u know i hate u :p:p:p.

I am very interested in watching your mini tut on Z :).

Have fun u NUTS Brazilero!

03 March 2005, 12:06 PM
Awesome concept Kris. I dig this character already and I'm excited to see what you come up for the beast. Brilliant work for such a short period of time. I'm bookmarking this thread.:love:

Speaking of Willy Wonka, this character reminds me so much of some of the schoolmates in the movie "Matilda" from Roald Dahl's hit children novel.

By the way, i'm on my way to working for 2 of your fellow co-workers at Omation Studios. Troy Caro and Gorio Vicuna.

Wish you all the luck and this thread is certainly not to be missed.:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 12:07 PM
great work, i havent used zbrush yet, but it seams like a cool program.
i use freeform concept and its kind of the same but you can murge like digital clay spheres (voxels)together,
its great if you now (ordinary skulpting).
lovly update and waiting for more. (now back to beast). see you and :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 12:14 PM
You know I love you man...wait...I hate you... no I love you...well, I hate you but I like greek food. It's already a good start! :P

Thanks man! I don't remember your friends by name. In which department they are working there? I'm leaving the studio next week.

yeah man, Z is great for traditional and digital sculptors. I think you will gonna love it.


03 March 2005, 12:22 PM
zbrush is a great prog , but it' up to the artist , and yes , this powerful weapon is in your hand , I can't imagine what's the result will come out !! great work! :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 12:30 PM

Man, congratulations for your great work, both in 2D and 3D! You are a very talented guy and I'm looking forward to see what's is coming from you this time :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 01:10 PM
Holy S**t!, You're an inspiration Antropus... Thanks for reminding me that I've gotta get cracking! massively

03 March 2005, 02:09 PM
Great updates already ! Nice shading and rendering so far, your piece is gonna be awesome man... :thumbsup::applause:

orion 77
03 March 2005, 02:47 PM
are you gonna model the pose or rig the models and then pose them? im not sure which way to go myself.

03 March 2005, 03:00 PM
It´s amazing !! The zbrush in your hands is a power full weapon!! Really nice work, again!Have fun!:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 03:04 PM
Good starting, the idea amuses me, to follow good luck. :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 03:36 PM
good interpretation of Master&Servant...go ahead!!

03 March 2005, 07:13 PM
:applause: no words... is really splendid ... congrats

03 March 2005, 07:49 PM

it's been ages since I've seen willy wonka, I don't even remember that ;p
every1 draws inspiration from something.. even tho not consciously.

work is great man, keep it up.. btw is that a render from Zbrush? does it have it's own cloth and skin shaders?

maybe I'll try to relearn it again.. the zspheres thing was strange to get the fundementals right :shrug:

03 March 2005, 07:52 PM
COOOLLL ! greeaatt idea ! beaultifull work !
desire A lot of Luck!!! im waiting to see moree !

parabens ae antropus.. T+ :bounce:

03 March 2005, 07:59 PM
The modeling is excellent :thumbsup:

Dont take this the wrong way but damn is she ugly! You have defintely captured the essence of your concept art though and this defintely looks like a top 10 entry so far!

03 March 2005, 09:23 PM
Still amazing !

03 March 2005, 09:39 PM
Preciso urgentemente estudar mais Z-Brush!!! hehehehe......
Man, you know you will win again, whrite?
Parabéns por antecipação!!! :thumbsup: Great job!!
(like all others you have made)

03 March 2005, 10:03 PM
Hey guys! I'm glad that you liked it! This way I can keep working in the same direction :thumbsup:

I'll try to finish her in 2 to 3 days and after this I'll start the mutant Kangaroo! Whoooohoooo will be a lot of fun :D


03 March 2005, 12:24 AM
Hey man!! Great!!

I liked references a lot, there is the hope of a great work!! :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 12:57 AM
Poor girl Kris, you have no mercy! and 2 or 3 days to finish it? woha! Zbrush sounds incredible ;)
I really gonna keep my eyes on this thread!

Take care and good luck man!

Rafael Martinez

03 March 2005, 01:06 AM
I am anxious for seeing the progresses! You are very fast!!! :)

03 March 2005, 01:08 AM
She looks like my best friends sister haha.
nicely sculpt...i love them teeth hahah. Good luck on alll your other zbrush models and gl texturing...whcih you dont need haha

03 March 2005, 01:40 AM
Cool modeling!

reminds me the Garbage Pail Kids! :scream:

03 March 2005, 02:18 AM
Antropus i find you to be an expert at ZBrush. I have something i cant figure out. Here i have a picture of how a ZSphere deforms, it seems as if i turn the extruding sphere behind the primary(bigger) spehere it deforms incorrectly, or correctly, but its not the product i want.

Any ideas? Do i just rotate it? If so, then how?

03 March 2005, 02:24 AM
Try to keep both spheres with the same rotation angle. Just rotate the smaller one and I'm sure you will correct this problem.

03 March 2005, 02:41 AM
Ok i see how Zspheres work now. Thanks.... i guess. All that time i spent trying to figure out why it deforms... whatever.

03 March 2005, 03:04 AM order to add more details.

Hey Kris, fantastic WIP. I love the way you are showing your development. Are the cuffs in the above image a ZSPhere "replacement" or did you combine 2 screengrabs (1 all zspheres, 1 adaptive mesh preview). ?


03 March 2005, 03:34 AM
Hi Keridan :)
I used Zspheres just for the hair and body since I can create news poses at any time. Everything else, including the head is already a Polymesh 3D with different subD levels but are not "rigged" anymore.

I'm curious about your work for this challenge ;)


03 March 2005, 03:59 AM
Everything else, including the head is already a Polymesh 3D with different subD levels but are not "rigged" anymore.
I'm curious about your work for this challenge ;)

Me too, it will be a little familiar to you (my tennis player), but I am basically starting over with a solid foundation from what I have learnt, tackling it more from a single perspective "action-pain-still" point of view ;-)

It is possible to replace ZSpheres with imported objects though right? That way you can still pose your characters?

Thanks again Kris!

03 March 2005, 03:59 AM
I really love the girl, reminds me of these little gross-out trading cards i used to buy as a kid.

anyway, can't wait to see this one finished :)


03 March 2005, 04:23 AM
Hey kris, the psycho girl model is rocking:thumbsup: Can't wait to see more updates.

03 March 2005, 05:14 AM
Looks good! so you have definately got the hang of ZB then! Any sdvice for good help to get started for a beginner? ie tuts

You definately have loads of talent good luck with it! :thumbsup: although I don't think luck will have anything to do with it...

rock on!

03 March 2005, 06:09 AM
I really love the girl, reminds me of these little gross-out trading cards i used to buy as a kid.

anyway, can't wait to see this one finished :)


Exactly. Those mutated puking little kid cards.(:rolleyes: all of a sudden i'm having faint visions of my past)

I loved to buy those too when i was a kid, and stick them up on my lunchbox. God, i wish i could remember what those were called.

03 March 2005, 06:32 AM (

Just a closeup to show some details

03 March 2005, 06:34 AM (

I worked in her facial expression to show some more personality. Now I'm in doubt if I'll keep the glasses :p

03 March 2005, 06:35 AM
whoa! , you need to teach me how to texture man. I take it you dont need to worry about laying out UV's since its a zbrush model?

Love how she is coming along.

03 March 2005, 06:36 AM (

I'm not done with the textures yet. I just added a better facial expression and painted the eyebrows and some more details. I'll keep she simple and soft to make a good contrast with the mutant Kangaroo :)

These are already the new teeth, less monster and more ugly kid :)

03 March 2005, 06:38 AM
thats so cool antropus, i like the glasses, see you and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 06:42 AM
Thanks a lot guys.

Yes, you can continue posing even with a connected object in your ZSpheres chain ;)

Yeah man. Is kind of use Bodypaint with auto UVs. You just need to create the UV tile and start to paint. Isn't funny? ;)


03 March 2005, 06:55 AM
I don't know if it's funny but for sure ..this is brilliant...hehehe...i always loved your little details here and there....i can't have enough of this ....well..i am think of marrying this girl when shes come to age....if she doesn't have a stroke from all these candies..eheheh..

Amazing work.... :)

03 March 2005, 07:12 AM
great work
ugly girl
winner :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 07:24 AM
Absolutely outstanding. The part on her lip looks a tad un-anti-aliased, but aside from that, excellent.

03 March 2005, 07:34 AM
• Damn! I knew it would be worth to follow your thread :thumbsup: the fat girl is looking disgustingly cool, man u are going real fast! keep at it :beer:

03 March 2005, 08:08 AM
I'm gonna have nigthmares tonight, awesome work!!! :applause:

03 March 2005, 08:53 AM
Oh my god!she's horrible!

Very good job antropus:thumbsup: !

Are you using zbrush only?or you will export it in maya?

03 March 2005, 09:11 AM
that's looking brilliant there buddy.

Love the expression on her face. :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 09:51 AM
Hei man thats not realy my dream girl........

but the most funny concept i saw in this chalange.....

God luck Thomas

03 March 2005, 12:11 PM (

Just a quick paint-over in photoshop to check how the eyes will look after textured in Zbrush.

03 March 2005, 12:39 PM
Amazing :buttrock: !

The skin shader is awesome... so since the beginning you did everything with zbrush...? That's incredible, i'm gonna take a closer look to this software:love:

Keep up that excellent work !

03 March 2005, 01:08 PM
awesome!!! the skin shader is really really good ..but I prefer her without glasses ..
thx for this close-up :love:

03 March 2005, 01:50 PM
Just one question, Kris:
There something I find strange in all that images done with ZB... It seems that there's a strange antialiasing between overlapped surfaces... Is it a bug ?

03 March 2005, 02:23 PM
Wow that skin texture is awesome, hell all of it is. Keep the updates coming!

03 March 2005, 02:24 PM
kris, all good one? face, I looked at its topic now, when vi link in the forum of 3d4all. I do not have much to comment, I only am for congratulating it for the excellent work, I am its wallet fan. rs.

03 March 2005, 03:04 PM
Hi Antropus. I have no words for you. Just "Congratulations" for the great start. :applause:

03 March 2005, 03:40 PM
Very interesting challenge (Antropus is IN) :)

Great work

The girl WOW , she really has an Ugly face :) , Great style.

ZBrush challenge? :)

Your work is really Great ZBrush tutorial :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 03:40 PM
Wow!! man! if have 3 minutes to say how you learn z-brush, where you researched, which difficulties you had, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, i will (and most of us)apreciate VERY MUCH!!


03 March 2005, 03:43 PM
I must say... she looks awfully good :D

03 March 2005, 03:56 PM
Hi Kris
Very good work! the shaders had been very cool!:thumbsup:
I'm anxious to see the monster finished, i'm realy like his concept...
Congrats and good luck

03 March 2005, 04:53 PM
hey criss
coooolll mann !!
mto feia ! :D
hahaha.. good luck my friend !!
cya !

03 March 2005, 04:58 PM
That shaders look interesting, the feeling on the face is also kind of a person who has not matured with age, yeah psycho you said...Great job.

03 March 2005, 09:03 PM
Great job! hey man why we dont stop the challenge now and declare u the winner, that will save alot of problems to all hheheheeheh :applause:

P.S. hey what happen with Maya, i love how do u work on maya, its kind desapointment see u with zbrush cuz its like more easy working with zspheres. :sad:

03 March 2005, 09:04 PM
Hi guys!
Thanks a lot guys :)

About this work, well I can say that is 96.12312% ZBrush :)
It's just because I'm not an expert yet and for some objects I find faster to create in maya and bring to ZBrush but I'm pretty sure that's all about time because you can do everything in Zbrush.

About the antialias, well, ZBrush still have some limitations and the best thing to do is always render the image with twice the normal size and resize it using PS. Actually it works pretty well. For these images I'm just showing a 1024x768 image and the final version probably will not have so many artifacts.

About how to learn ZBrush, well, I learned by myself doing my own research. I mean, you have access to a lot of tutorials and techniques all over the internet. You just need to make your own research. Until now I had no question that I can't find answer just taking a look at
That's the amazing Zbrush official forum and a great community with a lot of people offering help and sahring knowledge. I'm pretty sure that if you spend some hours working in ZBrush, some minutes taking a look in all the great tutorials (ZScripts that come already with the software) and interecting with the Pixolator community you will learn ZBrush very fast. No magic, just hard work ;)

About I'm doing this work fast, well it's not soooooo true that I'm fast. Is just because I worked really hard this holidays because I have to try to make the most I can before to start to work in another studio, in few weeks. My bedroom is a complete mess because I have to pack everything to move in one or two weeks. Instead of pack everything, I'm just sleeping few hours and working for the challenge, several hours day, since I'll have not a lot of time when I start to work in the another company. Let's see if I can finish this work :p

Thanks again for all your comments!

03 March 2005, 09:07 PM
P.S. hey what happen with Maya, i love how do u work on maya, its kind desapointment see u with zbrush cuz its like more easy working with zspheres. :sad:

Oh well, so I like to see everybody doing this way, since I think is just different, not more easy ;)
I hope everybody give a try to ZBrush to see what kind of results you can extract with this tool, that's exactly what ZBrush is, as maya, as xsi, as max etc :)

Do you wanna try it and show your results? Will be great.


03 March 2005, 09:07 PM
Man that chick is hot! hehe Thats coming along really nice.

03 March 2005, 09:10 PM
It´s becoming great antro!! Reminds me a fat teacher I had! ahahahhaa:twisted:
Qual shader vc esta usando para os olhos antro?

03 March 2005, 09:44 PM
i don`t like her teeth change them please... ;)

and i am scared! :D

03 March 2005, 10:03 PM
the eyes come across so believable, which I think is a hard thing to do in cg.. well done Kris

as for the teeth, dont change a thing ;p (unless that's still the temp placeholder)

03 March 2005, 10:39 PM
Hey Kris, It´s coming just perfect your work! You MUST finish it ;)
About the theeth, they are awfully beautiful (terrivelmente lindos, se eh q me entende ;) ) and what an expression on the eyes! great work so far! keep the updates coming!!

Take care and good luck in the challenge and in the new studio!

Rafael Martinez

03 March 2005, 03:30 AM
Man that chick is hot! hehe Thats coming along really nice.

Man, you can be arrested! She is under 18!! LOL

The eyes are just a paint over right now but I'll try to get a pretty close result using ZBrush shaders+texture. The best way to work for still images is try to simulate some things like reflections and shadows that can be baked in the texture (painted). Is more or less like texturing low-poly characters for videogames where you paint specular and shadow effects right into the texture ;)

Thanks a lot to all of you guys!


03 March 2005, 05:17 AM

Love your past stuff I've seen, but it's the more comic stuff on your website that really speaks to me.

The little girl's teeth are so horrible. I love it!

Best of luck!

Teddy Luciano
03 March 2005, 06:06 AM
That's looking awesome. Reminds me so much of the Garbage Pail kids. Can't wait to see you add more to this girl to make her look even more psycho like. Awaiting the mutant beast as well.

03 March 2005, 06:57 AM
Dear Antropus, you are my number one inspiration figure in the CG world, beside
Pixolator and Andreseloy!
Best wishes and good luck, master!

03 March 2005, 07:51 AM
When I see your work Kris... I think I must change of job... really :scream:
Very creative... amazing... no words to describe what they are in my mind... maybe a great respect :thumbsup:

Continue like that :beer:

03 March 2005, 07:57 AM
OMG she is so awful but it is so well done That I can only say :
Bravo, and keep it up:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 07:58 AM
awful...she's a monster.... great!!!

03 March 2005, 08:08 AM

Looking great! Any chance you could post a close up wire view of the facial features. I'm interested in seeing how you did the eyes and nose.


03 March 2005, 08:09 AM
wow...... thats amazing

i really impressed .... hope to see more soon
wish you the best luck

03 March 2005, 08:36 AM
wow!:) looking very Psycho!!!:thumbsup:
nice Job.Great modelling.i like it

good luck'man.:)
i`m looking forward your next wip's

03 March 2005, 11:18 AM (

Well, I don't know if the wireframes in Zbrush will help you because you don't need to follow a totally correct topology since is all about the forms of a 1.800.000 polygons model (just for the head!):)
Anyway, here's the wire.

03 March 2005, 11:23 AM (

Here's the texture I painted for the eyes. The specular was painted as texture, as for the caustics in the opposite side. To increase the sensation of a liquid I used another shader painted over the eye surface. You can take a look in my "Picasso Tutorial" at to see how you can create multiple shaders for the same object in ZBrush.

03 March 2005, 11:25 AM (

Here's a closeup of the eye texture painted in ZBrush.

03 March 2005, 11:26 AM (

Here a highres image showing the eyes texture+shader to add life to the little bastard :)

03 March 2005, 11:31 AM
argh :argh: that's 'bleark'... excellent textures :applause: amazing work Krishnamurti !

03 March 2005, 11:31 AM (

As you can see, I added more personality to the facial expression by changing the mouth, added a tongue, painted the eyes and changed the teeth. As I told you before, my intention is to go for a twisted girl, not a monster (well, she's not an example of beauty :) ). To do so I decided to change the teeth to look more like a little girl that eat a lot of sugar :)
I started to adjust the clothes and the pose (right arm). I already started the hands but will take some time until I can post it.

03 March 2005, 11:32 AM
Oh!! I forgot to mention the new MOLE! hahahahaha


03 March 2005, 11:37 AM
I would hate to see her Mom :D

Model is looking great, cant wait to see it completed.

03 March 2005, 11:40 AM
I am realy impressive and i see the powerful of zbrush ;)
Good luck for the next :)

03 March 2005, 11:50 AM
Hahahaa it just cracks me up everytime i see that crazy girl. :P

That ungratefull face just screams to be slapped real hard... ow shit now i'm in trouble.

Seriously great job with the modeling and all... and pretty quick.

~ reinier

03 March 2005, 12:47 PM
I love the look of the confectionary antropus, and the overall illustrative style :)
might be cool to see some saliva dripping from her teeth or something equally disgusting.

03 March 2005, 12:55 PM
please, anyone to kill him? (only during the contest) ;)

Bricadeiras a parte...
Parabéns! SAP: Congratulations!

03 March 2005, 01:08 PM
your work keep geting better and better , can't imagine what 's final result,

03 March 2005, 01:38 PM
Great stuff!!!

What color scheme are you using? Like the base color, higlights, "freckles"?

The eyebrowse look great, can't belive that they are painted on. You seem to be one of the most technical skilled and artistics here by my opionion.

03 March 2005, 01:47 PM
she looks like she burned her house after she slayed her parents and then robbed a bank...:scream:
i love it:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 02:01 PM
She's really repulsive in a cool way, great work. :thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 02:19 PM
Truly horrible, the girl that is. Keep it up. Textures work well.

03 March 2005, 02:21 PM
I thought that version of the teeth, was very strange. Very big. The previous was better...

[] ' s

03 March 2005, 02:34 PM
Hi Antropus, nice textures man the face is very lovely ehehehe....


03 March 2005, 06:25 PM
This girl crack me up! Good model and texture. There's something about her teeth that make me feel :D . Keep up it coming.

03 March 2005, 06:49 PM
Hey, awesome model. I am going to create my characters in ZBrush but I'm new to the program. Do you have any pointers?

03 March 2005, 06:54 PM
hi cris !!

i love the style and everything.. hehee
cara.. soh acho q falto a divisao da blusa da feinha.. (sorry) ;)

To Wipping in the same challange with you it's a honor and a great experience! thanks for your participation! You're the evidence for us. Just push the button, work hard and we can win, all of us. Your family is proud of you i think. Maybe this letter is a bit "sweet" but I had to wrote!

That girl is awesome....what else to say?

03 March 2005, 08:11 PM
Hey guys,

Thanks a lot for the kind words and crits. Yeah, I have to keep working in her clothes and I'm not hapy with the pose yet, that need to be a little bit more dinamic. I have to finish the hair and turn it mixed with the texture a little bit more. Anyway, still wip and after the canguru I have to adjust her to fit in the 'pocket' :)

rapaz, vc anda uma cara muito sensível...estou te estranhando :)
Tema pesado? Uma cena cômica onde um canguru mutante foje roubando cachorro quente, comandado por uma gordinha feia é algo pesado? Hahahahaha... cara, vc matou a pau com essa, hihiihihihi
Quanto à testa, opção de design do personagem mesmo.

poisé cara, faz parte do design também. A grande maioria gostou, outros não. Faz parte do jogo ;)

Thanks a lot guys!

03 March 2005, 08:33 PM
I knew it! I shouldn't have looked at this thread before going to bed - now when I close my eyes all I'll see is That Mole :eek:

03 March 2005, 09:26 PM
Hey guys,

poisé cara, faz parte do design também. A grande maioria gostou, outros não. Faz parte do jogo ;)

Você tem razão...

Expressei só a minha opinião. :thumbsup:

....i still hate u man :scream:

03 March 2005, 12:46 AM
The Mole is pretty cool!! I wouldn't change it a bit!! Keep on dude!!:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 01:00 AM

03 March 2005, 02:47 AM
Hey kris! its already comic! i´m dying to see the final image!
May I ask how many hours a day you are working for this challenge?
just curious ;)

Good luck man!

Rafael Martinez

03 March 2005, 03:05 AM
simply amazing, the teeth were it that more it pleased me, I am a little suspect to speak, therefore, I am a great fan of their works, keep going !!!:thumbsup:

03 March 2005, 03:13 AM
Shes coming along damn nicely man! She's "pretty" in her twisted sorta way, Really Nice, really nice! :D :thumbsup: Waiting for more!

03 March 2005, 06:20 AM
The mole is extra... no crit for her... she's so pretty... :twisted:

03 March 2005, 12:33 PM (

Hi guys. The time tonight was short. I had time enough just for a hot dog :)
Still need to improve it but this will be the template for another dozens of hot dogs in my scene :)

03 March 2005, 12:37 PM (

Just for fun (will not be this way in the final shot!) I turned the hot dog in a cigar for the 'master'... The cigar is just a prop, so don't care too much about the form.

03 March 2005, 12:41 PM
it is so grose and disguisting that it is beautiful :bowdown:

03 March 2005, 12:46 PM
Thanks a lot guys, LOL!

Man, I'm also curious to see what this thing will be at the end, hihihi


03 March 2005, 12:49 PM
lovely update ... lovely work antropus ... as always

one crit though is the hot dog .. i feel if it was partially eaten with a couple bites out of it it would feel more alive ... as is, i feel it more as a "prop" ... also i can't believe she is holding it that way

wondefully fun stuff though :thumbsup:

Thanks man, but this is a prop :)
I posted in her mouth just for fun. I will multiply it lots of times, changing the form a little bit for each one ;)

hum... tipo, mutantes, texturas hipersuperdetalhadas, veias, monstros, coisas assim.... não sei cara, acho que por já ter visto cenas a balde com esses elementos já perdi o interesse ehehehehe...

mas enfim, como disse, teu trampo é foda...parabéns...

Cara, aconselho vc a não acompanhar meu post então porque sua cabeça já está feita :)
Não acho que essa cena seja parecida com nada do que vc falou e realmente não entendo os seus motivos, a não ser que vc consiga visualizar minha cena antes mesmo de eu terminar, coisa que não imagino :) Veias? Texturas como essas que estou fazendo que lembram muito mais pintura do que render? É cara, não acompanhe meu post porque definitivamente vc não está gostando e será perda de tempo para vc ;)
