Nicolas Dehaut has entered the Master and Servant 3D.

Challenge Page (

Latest Update: Modeling: Girlie feet's :D (

Hmm ..i'm busy for the moment,so i only work on the challenge when i can..I will try to reach my delay off on the week-end :)
It will be hard to finish at time,it still a lot of work to complete this image,but i will do my best ..

About the challenge ,the mapping of the dog is going on well,and i have do some render test with mental ray and is the feets of my crazy girl! :D
They still need a lot of tweaks i know :shape of the toes , nails,etc..

03-22-2005, 11:24 PM (

Hi there , this is my first idea :)
A scary little girl going to play with her dog...
Ahem ... i will make some others sketchs i think ^^

03-22-2005, 11:27 PM
I just laughed out loud. reminds me of my son with our cats!

It's almost like a funny oppostite of my concept, if that makes sense:D

03-22-2005, 11:44 PM
Great sketch. It has a lot of persoality and looks like it will be fun to model.

03-22-2005, 11:47 PM
Yeah , my first idea was in fact that..a young girl playing with a cat..I've hesitate to put a cat,but at last , i've think a fat groovy dog should be more interesting!
I will maybe try with a cat later :D

Tnx for the comments :)

03-23-2005, 12:14 AM
hahaha that's funny dude :), if only that dog had a gun ;) GL!

03-23-2005, 12:40 AM
Hi Goul........Nico.........funny start......I like it.Make Belgium proud,as I know you will......I'll be following the progress......nice start.....:arteest:

03-23-2005, 12:40 AM
Sweet dog :)
It reminds me of our dog ( english bulldog) Overweight and ugly and something nasty :)
But so cute in her own stupid way...

Good luck

03-23-2005, 03:08 PM
Good idea and very life! Hope you will express the emotions in 3d.

03-23-2005, 03:33 PM
this is going to be a different one, no doubt about it
great job! keep it up
the girl IS scary

03-23-2005, 09:35 PM (

My second idea , again with a child :)
I will search a third one ,and then decide which one i will work on !

03-23-2005, 10:09 PM
very cool sketches :). I love the cat one.

03-23-2005, 10:09 PM
Very nice Nicolas.....i like the expression in the sketches,this will be nice and important in the 3D work,to convey emotion..........

I'll look for the third sketch from you........see you then......:arteest:

03-23-2005, 10:58 PM
Thanks for your support guys :)

stripe>tnx but it's a dog :D
Virtuoso> yes ,you're right ,indeed if i choice one of these two ideas ,i will have to work hard on the faces to reproduce these expressions ! I don't know if i will succeed , but it will be a good exercice :rolleyes:

03-23-2005, 11:00 PM
Great sketches, Goul! I think the dog and girl sketch is the stronger of the two you've posted... the exaggerated expressions really sell it. Looking forward to seeing your third sketch. :)

03-24-2005, 11:28 AM
Love the sketches Nicolas....The son and dad relationship yeah...
I'm torn becuase I loved the empression on the girl/dog relationship. :)

03-24-2005, 01:26 PM
great sketches. very funny :bounce:
made me think both could be part of masters and servants race, at the starting line ( remind me somthing...:) )
looking forward to see your third sketch.

03-24-2005, 06:41 PM
Lol Great! I like your second Idea Nicolas! very funny, go for it! and have tons of fun :buttrock:

03-25-2005, 04:19 PM
Hi, ... nice drawings. This doggy seems to be thunderstruck but the girl, I think, got some idea how to make an evening party :eek:

03-25-2005, 06:44 PM (

Well , so here is the third one: "the cow strike back" :D

03-25-2005, 09:56 PM
I believe the expression on the girl and dog is the most effective.
I'd like to see all of them, if that were possible! :)

03-26-2005, 11:08 PM

Salut Nico,

Really great idea and sketch as well :thumbsup: .... my prefer is also the first one !

Looking forward to next update "Modelling start" :bounce:
May the force be with you :buttrock:

03-27-2005, 10:34 PM (

Here's the starting of the dog head, pretty hard to model because there is no reference for a so strange dog :D
I've jus mix few dogs styles to follow my reference the best i can !
I already model the expression ,but i need to rework on the eyes at the end to desymetrise them like there is on the sketch..I will do that in the end !
Comments and crits are welcome obviously :)

smallone3d> I use 3dsmax6
Colling> tnx fiston :)
