04-16-2005, 04:37 AM
:applause: great update mec.. looking fantastic.. the dull shadow in the middle of the cave behind the characters is subtle yet gives such a good effect... the caves look awesome.. fantastic mec.. would love to see more man.!!

04-16-2005, 05:02 AM
great environment mecman,are the cave going to have loads of small creepy things in it to ?.
see you later and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-16-2005, 05:44 AM
Hi Mecman! I liked the new environment, but you could increase more details in the ground... more stalagmites... keep it up friend :thumbsup:


04-16-2005, 07:29 AM
:bounce::bounce: wow what I look here??!! nice update frienddddd nice work!!...I like enviroment, like the character...

LIKE THE SCENE ALOTTTTTTTTTTTT!! more moreeee:thumbsup:


04-16-2005, 07:58 AM
heheey.. yes I can smell Dante all over this time :)

It's looking good all together now. I think they really fit into this new environment.

Mec; would it be very difficult in this stage to make a sort of ramping wall and have it sort of crawling down it and grabbing the guy? Actually hving it's torso just about the same. Just the legs on a wall instead of the ground.
It's just a thought.

As usual, it is all going disgusting! Can't wait to see more


04-16-2005, 10:48 AM
I like the texture work, really great..."Clive Barker" you said? Yeah, your references are also great...waiting for your more details in your progress, just get into the micro, tiny details like veins, nerves, gore droplets etc...
Keep it up!!!:buttrock:

04-17-2005, 07:22 AM
great atmosphere and textures :) GO! GO! GO!

04-17-2005, 07:45 AM
And this comes from an architect .......I wonder what houses/buildings you have designed......Spooky horror ones right?;)

You have a finished product it seems marcelo........Real close,lots done,and you have done a good job......way too creepy and eerie for me.......but it's fun to get spooked now and then......Keep it up,your way ahead of the finishline.....:arteest:

04-17-2005, 07:45 AM
EEEEyyeeeewwwww, makes my skin crawl...Well done mecman:thumbsup:

04-17-2005, 09:54 AM
damn that looks painfull. YOu've got a really great mood going on there, looks great!

04-17-2005, 12:05 PM
Ha, great stuff. Maybe you could make the skulls on the floor a bit whiter (just a bit). Cause now, they are some kind of lost. I spent about 6 or 7 secunds to understand that there are skulls on the floor.

Good luck

04-17-2005, 05:10 PM
Alex: Thanks my friend!!! I´m glad you liked!!:thumbsup:

Poisen: Thanks a lot Poisen!!! I wanna put more details, thanks a lot my friend!!

Wanddo: Valeu bro!! curti tb! Agora esta quase, mas quero fazer mais coisas! Valeu bro!

Maxko: Thanks a lot mate!!!:thumbsup:

Virtuoso: hahahaha, It´s Weird, isnt it?? But some boring clients deserve this kind of house! ahaha
Yes, I think the main body of the work is done! now I´ll add more details! thanks a lot Virtuoso!!:thumbsup:

DaddyMack: Thanks a lot mate!!!:thumbsup:

d-tox: Thanks man!! Gld you liked the mood!!

grigorij: Thanks grigorij! My intention was to make it seens like they´re covered with dust! thanks mate!

04-17-2005, 05:15 PM
wow, more lovly no skined ,creepy and great sculls and a cave you never want to go in to if your name isent mecman. great work mate and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-17-2005, 07:56 PM
This is geting bether and bether. Great texture. What are you planing to do in the final month? I can't see the master or the servant, dont you need a human in this scene?

Vai fundo que esta ficando muito legal.

04-17-2005, 09:25 PM
It's said to hang the meat a few weeks for it to flavour better... I think your guy took it a little bit too literally :surprised
It's all getting together... woow the contest is sure proving more and more intresting isn't it?

Mec, I know I keep adding more stuff, but the fingers in his hand holding the torso, and the poor guys ribs seem to be a bit too simiallar. From far infact it looks like he has 4 fingers instead of two.
Would it be possible to like bend the fingers to hav him grab or something like that to make it a bit more diffrent than the ribs? Or to move it a bit more up/down?

Inspite the amount it sickens me, it is really great to watch your progress. Really anxious to see things develope. I really liked your thin touch of adding the millipedes crawling on the ground! They so add to it! Ooops.. the skulls right under/infront of her have interpenetrations! Nothing that can't be handled actually.
I agree that the skulls are not noticable.. but I think that was your intention wasn't it? I thinkn it is better that they are not obvious details.. but details shall anyone look deeper.

Going GREAT! (And SICK)

*shivers up spine* ... im scared.... :buttrock: great work man composition looking tops :thumbsup:

04-18-2005, 06:45 PM
Good to see a brazilian friend here! Good texture, idea... the ilumination could be more opressive, what do you think? Anyway, your job is growing great! Go for it, man!

04-18-2005, 09:01 PM
powerful image!

04-19-2005, 07:21 PM
Sorry MATE can I have one update please?? I need:thumbsup: ahahahahaaa


04-20-2005, 09:17 AM
wow, very impressive, and... though I like gore and stuff this is a bit... Well I don´t know how to describe it. lol

ok! good work! it looks awesome really. :thumbsup: congratulations!
I think adding more detail in the main claw would be a good idea, looks a bit flat.

04-20-2005, 04:03 PM (

Hi friends!
Just some photoshop corrections, and a better integration of the female servant with the ground!
Thanks a lot mates!! I´ll reply each one later, now...back to work...thanks!!

04-20-2005, 04:35 PM
Incredible work :) I am really scared .. :)

Hi Marcelo,
Great to see how you finished the contest, and very well done!

I like a lot of the background and the whole color balance over the scene.
The "bugs legs" are really great too! So is the speculars and the SSS feeling on the skin shaders.

The woman is really interesting! Great mix on the chest of bones, flesh, muscles and internal organs (I don´t know how to say "intestino"!).

You work great with ZBrush, my friend! Is this a 2.5d image or it´s already in MAX?

Really great Piece!
Congratulations and good luck!
Best Regards!


04-20-2005, 07:09 PM
Well, well and well....look nice nice friend...just like this work and now look more better with this corrections:thumbsup:

Keep up friend and:bounce:

Hi . Very beautifull... but so dirty! Good job (I m afraid!)

04-20-2005, 08:35 PM
real gory pic. i like it. and i like the background as well. those rocks are well done.

04-22-2005, 09:54 PM
Hey mec. the image need some corrections. All the skulls are looking to the front, I should make some different skuls into it. The tongs of the devils are too smooth to my oppinion. And make some more depth into the image. the back ground is a little to flat. But thats just my oppinion, You dont have to change a bit if you like it so far. Good luck.

04-22-2005, 10:29 PM
Hey Mec .. wow man, you really did a good job here.. Congratulations mate... :thumbsup: .. Keep working bro and you will be there, where everybody wants to be.. :buttrock:

Rotting the Snake : )
the textures are just ilustrative!
Thanks friends!!

04-24-2005, 11:38 AM
The snake is cool:thumbsup:

One crit though with the main picture…. I’ve been looking at for a while now, and I find it really hard to distinguish the spidery demon from the man hanging by chains. Is there any way you could separate them more, with shadow or colour? Or even better by repositioning them? At the moment they seem to be one creature:shrug:

04-24-2005, 02:19 PM
wow mate nice really nice update...I like the details:)...keep it so my friend:wip:


04-24-2005, 04:26 PM

Well detailed model:thumbsup: ...Did you think about meet a psyquiatrist?:rolleyes: ...I'm surely here to see whare it will go?

Um abraço!

crazy!!...nice snake model with super*extraordinary skin texture..:buttrock: !GREAT!
keep it up`mate!:)

04-24-2005, 09:13 PM
really nice textures and model :). I like it my friend :bounce: continuee :bounce:

04-24-2005, 10:27 PM
great snake!

by adding more characters you´re making the composition more interesting, like with more relationships to show...
I find the first compo. remind me to some catholic theme paintings and also to some of rembrandt paintings, with contrast, flesh, tortured souls... :thumbsup:

This is exactally what I will say ...

Cara tá tudo ficando muuito bom, as texturas estão ótimas, mas realmente tá dificil de entender onde acaba o servo e onde começa o mestre ... o corpo dos dois na parte de baixo estão ficando muito juntas, acabam parecendo ser a mesma pessoa. Acho que principalmente por causa da cor da pele, que o corpo do de aranha está com um tom mais parecido com o do servo do que com a do mestre ...

04-25-2005, 04:51 AM
snakes looks great man.. he looks really umm whats the word ..... Minced! lol.. great work

04-25-2005, 09:02 AM
Really like the snake, man! Cool design and gruesome colors. :) When compositing him with the others, watch out for the material. It blend him in with the rest too much. Nice direction, and keep rockin. :buttrock:

04-25-2005, 01:26 PM
your still a sick puppy !... keep it up dude, im liking it allot :twisted:

04-25-2005, 01:54 PM
and go!! always better the texturing than this wip.

04-25-2005, 02:14 PM
Now thats evil! I love it. Great work so far.

insane snake texture.

04-25-2005, 06:46 PM
Hello Mecman, your work is very interesting. I think you have a good job on hands and your target now is the final composition. Try to realy show us who is the servant and who is the master. But i know what you trying to do, its a good idea.

Looking your job i think you could refine some proportions and some definition muscles of the bodies and change some poses, but this is only tests, if you could do, do it. We are here to help you. In overal this is a good job and i realy want to see the final image. :thumbsup:

04-25-2005, 11:22 PM
Busy Marcelo...always busy marcelo.......Nice to see too.....:thumbsup: ......I believe you have the most skin crawling themed entry here...very vivid.............very intense and creepy.....Also well overall nice job on all fronts....lots done easy task......Plus the effort and passion behind this all is quite effident...There are only a few that have as much as you marcelo....keep on the compo final.....I'll be looking in for you get to final.....not far now......:arteest:

04-26-2005, 12:53 PM
Ahhhh...let me :bowdown: those rotten ugly snakes!! :drool: piece of my heart :buttrock:

MORE MORE MORE! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
You are the best of frightenin' ! No doubt!

04-26-2005, 03:59 PM
Truly horrific, brilliant texturing :) I liked the earlier version of the body with the eyeballs- makes him look like he's still aware of the suffering (they are the windows to the soul after all). Also I preffered the landscape background, which adds more epic depth & scale than the cave. Can't wait to see it all come together...

04-26-2005, 05:08 PM
hi man..
insane, insane..
my god.
very good.

04-26-2005, 05:13 PM

Hey friends! good evening!

Bartolo: thanks man!!!:thumbsup:

Banzato: Thanks a lot my friend! I must try something new, I don´t know if I´ll have the time, because as you know, I wanna make another background! But I´ll try! even if just for fun after the challenge!:D

Virtuoso: Michael, thanks a lot for your nice, nice words!! I´m realy happy with your comment! It´s very encouraging and gives the force to continue!! Thanks a lot my friend, means a lot for me!!:applause:

Go, go go go Eder, I really like the work and I can say that is the one of the works that shocked me, I like it very much, keep us updated with more flesh in the air!
See ya man!


04-27-2005, 05:16 AM
Gross.... cool work.
A couple of little crits: It looks to me like you jumped into detailing your models without perfecting the overall forms as much as you could have. The anatomy looks a little bit "sausagy".
And it seems a little strange that all the sculls are all facing forwards.
Its a pretty unrelentingly nasty image, I think just the slightest injection of something NOT horrific would be a real relief (plus an interesting contrast) in the image.

Have you ever seen the illustrations of a guy called Wayne Barlowe? He's made some really unique and believable illustarions of hell.

Cool work on the detailing and shading, keep it up.

04-27-2005, 06:50 PM
hello macman good luck....

heehee very good....

that it tortures.......

fot the brazilian....

go brazilian.....

04-28-2005, 01:41 AM (

hi friends, thanks a lot. Here goes a light test. Again I need your opinion!! Which composition is the best??
Thanks a lot friends!!

04-28-2005, 01:50 AM
Nice to see you again :).
Marcelo... :eek: Marcelo... :eek: !! INCREDIBLE WORK! :)
..and I think.. The picture at the bottom is the better one.. :thumbsup:

04-28-2005, 02:03 AM
Well well well, from hell this scene!! I think the lighting is too bright for a scene like that, but you´ve told me the reason for it!:thumbsup:
No critics for the modelling, zbrushed very well!
Congrats man, I like your work


04-28-2005, 02:06 AM
oh yeah marcello.!! thats what im talking about... how much does that add to the scene.. and that snake my god i love it!! great progress dude!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-28-2005, 02:15 AM
wow, awesome work .i agree with maxco, the bottom look better but need a bit more contrast,i think.

04-28-2005, 02:25 AM
Hi Mecman! Certinho? The first image test seems better... maybe a soft back light on left image's side help in this scene... It' only idea... great work man :thumbsup: keep on going

04-28-2005, 02:30 AM
great work mecman, i think the shadows works better on the top on, but tone down the lights alittle. see you later mate and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-28-2005, 08:17 AM
Wowow mannn looking very nice the first one...for me muth natural and realystic..very well done Marcelo, nice details!! yes no dubs for me the best is the first one.

keep strong my friend:thumbsup:


04-28-2005, 08:57 AM
i realy love your hell.
great work.:buttrock:

04-28-2005, 09:39 AM
hi marcelo,
I think the composition 2 (bottom) looks more flat and less interesting but thought the composition 1 has a good contrast an is directing the viewer throught the picture, has got a really intense light coming from one side and there´s no reason for it.
I mean: I prefer the one on the top but the light that is coming from the right... what light source is that? is it justified?
I don´t know, but maybe you can make this light source to be from a fire of hell or something (on orange color), and to be less directional. how's that?
I don´t want you to misunderstood me, because the work is looking great as it is but as you have the time to test more, I think you should. The colors are very similar in all the figures and I think I´d go for the lighting to impress importance to them (wich one is more important for the story?).

Good work!

04-28-2005, 09:56 AM
Hey Mecman, looking great my friend, but still think that the leg is alittle too fat for such a loss of matter....

Love your work though dude... keep it up :thumbsup:

Heber G Conde
04-28-2005, 01:48 PM
Hi Marcelo,
Great job!
I prefer the first one, I like the contrast of the image!
I like the snake too!

What about the background? Where are those great rocks?!

Good job Marcelo!
Keep Rocking!


04-28-2005, 03:24 PM
Hey Marcelo. Your work is much bether. Exelent idea with the big snake. Now your scene is more dark, i can feel more emotion. I know you will try a new background, go and show us the result. I think the 2 images are ok but i feel death in the botton image. Why not put some blood? Keep going, this is geting bether and bether. :thumbsup:

04-28-2005, 04:20 PM
I prefer the darker scene , but I think the shadows could be denser , like a black mass with the imagens coming from it.

just an idea.

keep on it.

04-28-2005, 09:27 PM
hi Marcelo

I think the top high contrast image is definately better.

My only crit would be the that the woman seems to float a bit and not interact with the floor. You could have a look at her shadows on the ground.

Also I had a quick play with image in photoshop. IMO the compostion works better if the chains are darker and fade to black at the edge of the image. It helps keep the eye in the center of the frame.

All in all though great work.

04-28-2005, 09:37 PM
Oh...............Creepy.......surreal......and done quite nicely marcelo......I prefer the bottom picture......I think at this stage it's all about final tweaking......I think also you could work a bit on the muscle definition,add some cuts,some defining lines.muscle tone,muscle seperation......Just a few minutes of tweaks,and you will be there........:arteest: are real lucky guy.....Not like some of (Me ;) ).....who will fight the good fight right down to the last hour or so.......;)

.............I'll be looking in for you're final touches......nice job here,nice efforts too,and i like the passion.......That is always a big extra.....:arteest: :beer:

04-28-2005, 09:50 PM
Wow... very nice

04-29-2005, 12:30 PM
very nice Mecman !!!:thumbsup:

- eu prefiro a segunda imagem, pois, as cores do cenário contrastam melhor como os personagens, mas, as duas estão legais

good look

very good light test!..

05-01-2005, 09:25 AM
Very good Mec, i like the new character the snake

05-01-2005, 08:51 PM
I don't know what has been happening.. but I seem to be not getting notifications for a variaty of threads I had heeart to follow up on!
Yours being one of them.

As much as I totally missed out on the snake being created and developed I have to say that it was a good idea and nicely executetd. It ensures a better unity between the elements of the scene.

I just went down to take another look at your image before closing things down.. but the uniformness of the specularity for every object is sort of being much more obvious now. Would it be possible for you to also map out your specularity per element?

Things are settling more and more into place.
Of your two options.. Ithink the one in the bottom pushes the girl more to an isolated distance from the other two. Thats the only basic diffrence that I can say catches my eye. I don't know if you would want to be pushing her or if you would want to do the opposite.

Well it's all going great... good luck! :thumbs up:


05-02-2005, 02:53 PM
come on friend put more updates!!:thumbsup:

05-02-2005, 05:57 PM
Very good work in textures... i think you could put more shadows to make the scenery more dark, misterious, even losting a little detail... Anyway, go for it!

My thread:

05-02-2005, 06:06 PM
dude, you've definately got my skin crawling here.. nice work. Very dark and horrific man :thumbsup:

05-02-2005, 08:14 PM (

Hi friends, thanks to all!
I´m testing a new background, incomplete yet, but, what do you think? More interesting than the cave? or the cave is better?
Thanks a lot mates!

05-02-2005, 08:20 PM (

The cave is here, with the new character. thanks a lot my friends!

05-02-2005, 08:21 PM
E aí Marcelo,td certo? Bem legal esse background, gostei do nivel dos detalhes q vc colocou, mas vc vai dar uma completada no espaço em preto ainda, não?
Eu achei esse fundo aí melhor q a caverna, mas completa ele aí... :thumbsup:
gde abraço

05-02-2005, 08:26 PM
Hi Marcelo..............well I think the cave fits better with the color theme......But......I do like the "Giger" like setting too,the honey-comb grill type setting is nice too........I think I'll leave this to you and others opinions......for me it's really a toss up.......Both are quite appealing and right for you're scene......are'nt you lucky.....You have two nice choices.......Now thats a good problem to have......;)

.......Best of luck Marcelo........:arteest:

05-02-2005, 09:38 PM
I think definately the top one.. but with more reds introduced to the BG and with a bit more cold blues intreduced to the characters.
The reason I would go for the new one was because the old one was burrying your figures more to compair... And this is sort of more convincing to expect chains hanging from it all around.

Not complete you say.. can you hint us to whats going to be positioned in the blackness? once again blackness?

Well at least my point of view.


05-02-2005, 09:39 PM
Hey Marcelo really nice updates mate!!...I really like the new cave, looking more better you have really amazing details..good job friend compliments:thumbsup:


05-03-2005, 02:15 AM
Hey friends, thanks a lot for your nice, nice support!! I would love to answer each one, but the hurry to end the models gave me a painful injury in my hands...:sad: but I will make everything to finish this work!! thanks a lot for your nice support mates!:applause:

05-03-2005, 02:37 AM
Exelent job. What about some blood in this scene? Nice composition too. :thumbsup: Opps, i saw that giger style... its very good. Try to put the cave togeter. Keep going.

05-03-2005, 07:58 AM
Dude,,this is good stuff.Really horrifyc.
I dont want ot dream this,that's for shure..U did good job with the snake. :thumbsup:

05-03-2005, 08:34 AM
Better and better my dear friend

05-04-2005, 12:30 AM
Looking good, mecman. Like the changes made to the main beasty and the addition of the snake. Much more balanced composition. The woman's left shoulder seems to blend into the snake a little much, but otherwise top notch work. :thumbsup:

05-04-2005, 03:08 AM (

Hail friends!
This is the (almost) finished composition...I´ll add some details but I think it´s 99% done. Thanks a lot for the nice support!!

05-04-2005, 03:16 AM
Wow, is just remaining a butcher to cut all these flesh!!haha

very realistic, very good lighting and modelling!!!
amazing wip!!!

congrats man!!

tá do caralho marcelão!



05-04-2005, 09:29 AM
Hey Hey my friend Marcelo...nice update looking here. nice details you have make..
go marcelo go..amazing work big friend!! keep it always strong!!:thumbsup:


05-04-2005, 10:07 AM
Wow mate, this background is much better, congratulations Mec

05-04-2005, 11:04 AM
:eek: simply wonderful :eek:

05-04-2005, 10:32 PM
well done!

05-04-2005, 11:32 PM
I really like the new backdrop. The giger stuff is really cool. :thumbsup:

CRIT. There two strong lines (one vertical and one horizontal) going directly across the middle of the picture. This is not good for your compostion as it splits the frame up. Strong lines are better located a third of way across the picture.

You could consider moving the central beam. and re-framing the picture slightly, possibly darking the edges to keep the eye focused in the center.

I hope this helps.

05-05-2005, 12:05 AM
Hey, well done. This is your style man. Amazing... that black area is exelent.

Im thinking here...
what do you think: "torture" machine holding the chains (mechanical parts) _ just to improve your exelent work. Just an idea. :thumbsup:

Congratulations. :applause:

05-05-2005, 03:57 AM
Excellent work on background Mecman!!!:bounce: Really nice details... beautiful final work... congrats! :thumbsup:

05-05-2005, 05:05 AM
Hey really cool background ... is getting better and better ... :bounce:

I just think the Master is too little... he is lost in the middle of image ... I don´t know if it´s possible, but if you scale high the master and make him bigger, maybe 3/4 of the high of the image, could make the master more imponent ...

Ou ainda uma outra ideia, é deixar o demonio-aranha lá mesmo, e fazer uma aranha mãe, como mestre de todos ... Vc poderia usar as mesmas pernas, e só fazer o corpo ... Um lugar que estava pensando, seria coloca-la de cabeça para baixo, na parte de cima da imagem, olhando para todos seus escravos, inclusive, o demonio menor, que poderia ser seu filho ...
Ah sim, independente disso, acho que ficaria legal uns cantos com teias, e talvez com uns cadaveres em cazulos, já que o mestre é metade aranha ... :thumbsup: Vc poderia colocar alguma coisa no primeiro plano tb .. acho que a ideia dos cazulos pendurados, se encaixaria muito bem ...

05-05-2005, 02:13 PM
Crazy stuff. I like it.

05-05-2005, 06:18 PM
It´s getting better... Good work!

My thread:

05-05-2005, 10:23 PM
Hi, I think all chains are too straight. Of course it is possible but there must be an force to do it so and I cannot to see there - the corpse looks too rezignatet, without any feel of rage, resist, no energy to make chains straight....
No more mistakes for me there, the rest is perfect - good luck

05-06-2005, 03:49 AM
great composition man !!!:thumbsup:

good look

05-06-2005, 06:19 AM

05-07-2005, 12:13 AM
Really coming out very nicely marcelo......You have done a fine job here from start to "Near finish".......I like the choice for BG,in the end it is most fitting......I also like the idea "JR.BRAZ" brought up of scaling the master up.......Something that you could consider.......Anyways,,,,,you have a nice piece and showed some interesting and creepy skills here.....All the best to you with you're final touches...I'l be looking for that final soon looks like.....Best of luck to you.....:arteest:

05-07-2005, 12:53 AM

05-15-2005, 06:59 AM
the history ..inspired by an old horror game....Kult

My intention was to recreate a world that lies beneath our world, a twisted maze of organic corridors, a borderland between madness and death, where horror and pain feed dark creatures that roam on our cities searching for new preys they needed for their own survival. The pain and horror of the poor preys gives force and powers to these demons, keeping these servants alive under torture...serving with pain and a twisted relationship of servitude.

In this scene i recreate this torture chamber, with the master demon torturing the human and feeding himself with the servant´s fear and pain. We can see another human, with her mind torn apart and destroyed, after a long time of servitude under torture...the big snake is a lesser demon, used by the great master to hunt the humans above the chambers, bringing then to an endles suffering...

05-15-2005, 08:01 AM
