Latest Update: Modeling: a horsie! (

here's the servant character wip..... finaly!
I guess the sleep deprivation is starting to kick in - you can see it in the lower left corner of this pick :)))

03-31-2005, 08:22 PM
I forgot to wish you all a great challenge! May the best one win!

03-31-2005, 08:41 PM

got bored of modeling the carriage... so I started to do the character.
just trying to give him that Roman look, with the jaw and nose and all that stuff...

04-01-2005, 09:50 AM (

I'll better post my concept sketch here! not everyone will visit my challenge page!

04-01-2005, 10:33 AM

04-01-2005, 11:38 AM (

refining details: nose, lips, neck [of course], eyes, cheeks

Lemog: thanks, I'll be watching you as well, great concept you have there!

Mr.Waka: personal style? well, thanks thats something noone has said to me jet!

04-01-2005, 12:29 PM
The sketch is really cool, and the head looks good so far. The forehead maybe seems a bit tall, but its up to you.

04-01-2005, 12:35 PM

04-01-2005, 12:43 PM

04-01-2005, 07:02 PM (

thanks to all for the good words! encouragement means a lot to me!!!

ww667: I really hope to finish this one [!]

but I think its sleapy-time for me today..........

04-01-2005, 07:10 PM
Very nice dude!

Lots of character in the face as oppsed to just being another bland head model.

Very cool and keep up the good work!

04-01-2005, 07:54 PM
Of course I like the style. Especially the lip area, well done. Waiting for the rest of the torso.

04-01-2005, 08:10 PM
dmonk: thanks, emotions are the stuff that the world is made of!

Brent_3D: torso comming up tomorrow... up till now I did not know that I have some special kind of style, but if you guys say so...... well, thats great -I guess!

04-02-2005, 12:55 PM (

ok, so here the start for the torso! I will make proportions more stylised later! just to get the overall form here...

04-02-2005, 01:50 PM (

continuing the torso, and starting to think about the shoulders!

04-02-2005, 02:49 PM
Nice style, me like :)
Nice modeling too, good luck for you :thumbsup:


04-02-2005, 03:40 PM
fantastic concept and modeling ,very funny roman dude
love it:thumbsup:

04-02-2005, 04:56 PM
Love the serious look on the romans face...this is going to be a blast once it's done.....real poster material :thumbsup:

04-02-2005, 04:58 PM
great concept dude, keep it coming

04-02-2005, 10:29 PM
Ah... Very nice design ! like it so much ! :bounce:

Keep this great work ! :thumbsup:

04-02-2005, 10:37 PM (

yeah, thats right, he has those short, stumpy legs, those are almost the only thing that will be rigged in this model[the pretorian]!

I'd better go to bed - this supposed to be a weekend.... but I'm working my ass off!

04-02-2005, 10:42 PM
cool. funny character :)

04-02-2005, 10:49 PM
forgot to say thanks to all of you guys supporting me it really keeps me going!
so thank you: eYadNesS, Mr Micro26, 3dRaven, eddieellis, Mr.Waka, smaddl!

and hopefully the horse character will be even more funnier: he'll be all shocked and angry, and maybe saying some bad words! :)

by the way I'd like to recieve some C&C as you guys call it, it can't be that perfect after all... that theres nothing to say!

04-03-2005, 10:58 AM
Hi Miezis, I really like your sense of style:thumbsup:
His face is mental, keep it up mate!
CC His muscles could maybe be sharper, or edgier to match his face, they're looking a bit lumpy at the moment but I can see where you're headed. Maybe some tendons to add strain to his neck..
Good luck;)

04-03-2005, 11:07 AM
DaddyMack: tendons idea is great! haven't thought of that earlier! details on the chest armour will be coming along... but not today.. I want to complete his legs and pelvis area today. [and maybe start making the arms- with enormous muscles with tendons and vains on them... and scars.. oh yeah, this will be nice!]. but i guess the tendons could be added as bump maps...
the texturing part will be HARD!

04-03-2005, 01:53 PM
Nice idea and funny character!!
Good luck

04-03-2005, 05:05 PM (

this is so boring... modeling features that probably noone will see.

and don't worry about the "package" it will be covered by skrit! and yeah I added a belt

now arms! a lot more interesting!

04-03-2005, 07:55 PM
... nice idea and i like your cartoon style ... good luck :thumbsup:

04-03-2005, 09:25 PM
Hi Gunaars............i like your conceot and the fun aspect very much.......funny proprotions......You have to love realistic toons/caricatures...............Well done too,and I'll be looking in to see your progress......Keep it up.......Fun work....:thumbsup:

04-03-2005, 10:53 PM
I like youíre concept, and especially your style, I cracked up when I saw the first pic, Iím looking forward to seeing more.

04-04-2005, 08:42 AM
thanks to all: luckysevens, Fred76, Zethriel

Virtuoso: nice seeing you on my thread! I'll bee checking out your thread for updates too - one of my favourites for now! ok enogh flattering - its off to university for now... see you all a bit later!

04-04-2005, 09:05 AM
Hey man, really like this style you have hehe. Funny and great modelling all at the same time :D Keep going man! btw, nice package :D

04-04-2005, 09:21 AM
really nice model, the face is cool,he looks very stupid :) keep it up, the detail on the helmet is nice:thumbsup:

04-04-2005, 09:41 AM
Interesting and exciting scale of your character! Good to see!

04-04-2005, 04:36 PM
This looks to be a fun project direction for you mate! Very fun look!
The only thing I would say is that this highly stylized character needs a similarly stylized chariot to my eye. The chariot looks a lot more realistic in comparison to the character riding it. You might as an experiment try to create a similarly stylized chariot and see how it works.
Not really a crit, as they are both done exceptionally well, I just think they could jive together a touch more. Good luck! Great work indeed!

04-04-2005, 07:54 PM (

Arny helps! modeling arm apeared to be more of challenge to me -I even had to use a reference! a practise not so common to me! I'm used to making everything by memory!

its a rather small update- but still....

04-04-2005, 08:12 PM
Hi Gunaars, Wow dude awsome stuff :thumbsup: I think your ideas and skills are very good! Looking forward to more... Keep it up And rock on....

04-09-2005, 07:33 PM (

yup its finaly done.
been busy all this week, at a new workplace... and I feel rather depressed looking at your progress- but still I'll continue and try to finish this thing on time!

04-09-2005, 07:38 PM
thank you guys: Ravendsg, Jelmer, Tremoside, blackdragoncg!

Beaner: well the chariot is faaaaaar way from finished, I'll take care of it a bit later!

04-09-2005, 08:16 PM
Hi Miezis, that arm foto is demented man:argh: Your character's overall form is really coming together, Keep it up!!

04-09-2005, 08:57 PM (

sleep is for losers, right? so i decided to do second arm tonight as well!

here he is saluting! [by the way romans invented this salute!].
I'll be adding cape, skirt and some accesories to this model later on... but not today!

thank you DaddyMack! I'm also feeling it! :)

04-09-2005, 10:05 PM
dude his arm is huuuge :eek: :D. really cool :). I've got to model a pair of huge arms as well :), good thing we have arny for this eh?. If you need good reference material you should watch the arnold classics :). Good luck! :beer:

04-09-2005, 10:26 PM
Coming along real well.......The proportions are fun and the modeling is coming along real nice........Nice reference for the grip.......Fun and well done thus far Gunaars....keep it coming...I'll be looking out for more.......:arteest:

04-10-2005, 12:23 PM
Great modeling, I am waiting to see your servant ;) in the concept looks so cute, good luck!

04-10-2005, 04:42 PM (

here's the servant character wip..... finaly!
I guess the sleep deprivation is starting to kick in - you can see it in the lower left corner of this pick :)))

04-13-2005, 12:59 AM
