Ryan Gallinera has entered the Master and Servant 3D.

Latest Update: Modeling: CG head - alternative (

this is a rather far deviation from the other head model. I have to see if my time permits to let me work on the other head, cause i forsee it's more complicated with that "caricaturized / realistic" style.
Hopefully, the guys 'round here and give me some of their views / tips.

this imagery comes to mind...
master and servant...and yet partners in someway...

...the master sits on top scheming on what to do next...
...the servant sulks in his misery, he doesn't want this "partnership"...but he's sorta stuck in the deal...

worked out a quick sketch on paper and scanned the image, roughly coloured it in photoshop to get an idea of the mood / lighting...

...i plan to simplify it further in the CG model and hope to get it stylized than realistic...

how come there's a double post?! (is it me or what?!)

simple story: he wanted to rule the land and become the master...but he needed some help (yep, like the devil kind of thing)...and so they enter into a "partnership"...

anyway...this will be my first challenge to enter...
i hope to learn from this though...not really expecting to win it...
but i enter as to try finishing this is most important to me (fingers crossed).

g'luck to the rest...i'm quite honored to see the really good artists joining in
and giving some insights to the rest of the participants.:)

intresting ......good luck:thumbsup:

I like the duality of it. It's kinda like me and the Navy! HAHA. BEst of luck to you.

aiming for a more cartoony style...
experimented with initial concept and then i decided to sorta 'caricaturize' it.

03 March 2005, 07:09 AM
the idea of the navy sparked some ideas...thanks...

now it's more like...serving his time...but not as a sailor of course.
i don't have a story cemented actually, but just the image of the master sitting
on the servant...i hope to add some comedic feel to it...nothing too serious
(the competiton itself is serious to give me some headaches! :D
now i'll have to figure out how to get this into CG).

what you guys think so far regarding the your opinon which is more visually favorable to you the first or latest one?!

after going through the posts...and then the FAQ....

i realized that it should depict 100% human...
or as quoted in the FAQ

Q: Does one of the characters in the Master and Servant relationship need to be human?
A: Yes - absolutely. One of the characters needs to be human - doesn't matter whether he/she is the master or servant.

Q: Does one of the characters in the Master and Servant relationship need to be 100% human?
A: Yes. One of the characters has to depict the globally accepted notion of the homo-sapien species.

so...i guess i'll have to revert and work on my original concept...w/c seemed to be more human / homo-sapien like in nature...will come up with an update later....

A brief overview of how it was done.

03 March 2005, 01:27 PM (

This is the look so far. I'm still pondering on the thought of whether to go for a cartoony look or a more "caricaturized" style. The first idea is simpler and would be easier for me to finish, the latter would be indeed challenging for me, and may be able to play more with facial expressions perhaps. Any suggestions, critics or comments will be appreciated. Thank you.

After realizing that there should be a humaniod in the scene, i went back to the original concept. I had sketched an new one, except i just didn't have the chance to scan and post it here.

Anyway, i'm in the modelling stage right now. My concept is not that finalized, there may be some changes later...:)

03 March 2005, 05:03 PM
those first sketches are awesome,in my vision...loved the style,u must turn it out into 3d very well...its hard to keep the mood and the feelings,u know.
keep it up,mate...

Had a short break...and re-think the concept...this is what i had in mind after a couple o days.
now, i have two concepts and i haven't decided w/c one to use. Although the first one looks good, but i'm leaning towards something simpler and could tell a clearer story perhaps like the one with the wife.

04 April 2005, 02:28 PM (

Now am having a much clearer direction. Character studies of servant.

I actually prefer this head over the other one, It reminds me of a muppet. You don't see this style too much in 3d.

Looking good so far! the mohawk and chin music is working really well also.

04 April 2005, 02:20 PM
hmm,ur moving good! this head looks more better 2 me,it fits the subject more.keep on!

good luck mate.,

04 April 2005, 12:52 PM

04 April 2005, 01:06 PM
