Hey, looks great !. :thumbsup:

Why don't you tell us something about your new project...
By the way, that hat he is wearing, damn..... lookin' good.
Looks like an old fisherman.


10-09-2002, 08:43 AM
Damn, this is amazing! Good work !!!

Did you paint the facial textures or did you use photo reference?

10-09-2002, 08:58 AM

10-09-2002, 08:58 AM
all the texture were painted in photoshop,this is the color

10-09-2002, 10:21 AM
i like the specular shading of the skin-looks very real!!!
also the fabric is fantastic!
your character reminds me of grand moff tarkin in star wars.....

10-09-2002, 10:29 AM
I'll be a monkey's uncle if that model isn't based on the guy who played Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars, it looks just like him, it's the first thing I thought when the image popped up on the screen.

I like the model, and love the texturing, I'd work on the lips, and maybe either tone down or add more stubble (I'm not sure which).

Anyway, very nicely done.


10-09-2002, 10:51 AM
you are right ,it is based on some one in star war.

10-09-2002, 11:30 AM
GR8 JOB!! :applause: :applause: :thumbsup:


10-09-2002, 11:35 AM
I liked it so much :)

10-09-2002, 01:05 PM
Wow looks great. one thing you might want to do is check the placement of his ear it looks a little far back butthat may just be teh perspective of the image ( remember half way to the back of the head roughly). Anyways just wanted to say great work.

10-09-2002, 01:49 PM

10-09-2002, 01:55 PM
it looks much better than your previous post.

What did you modify from your last post?

10-09-2002, 02:06 PM
sweet man, looks like somthing the final fantasy team made.

ps: how do u go about painting skin in photoshop ?

10-09-2002, 02:06 PM
that is phenominal. Excellent work. Perhaps if he had a slight more color in the lips is my only comment. I put the image on my desktop so I get inspiration.


10-09-2002, 02:10 PM
This is an amazing peice of work! I really love it.... but i must ask... did you use Grand Moff Tarkin from star wars ep iv as a ref as you model ( and textures) bear a sticking resembelance. Because even his hat is almost the same.

just thought i would ask, either way :eek:

keep it up man...


10-09-2002, 02:29 PM

I can spot nothing wrong with this guy. I hope you use him for something.

10-09-2002, 02:32 PM
Holy crap monkey's in tha mornin' thats amazing man I likes it :applause:

10-09-2002, 02:40 PM
Well done, :thumbsup:
1) how about reduce the effect of pore near the nosebridge a little bit?
2) The wrinkle here a little strange, just check it out.
Good stuff :applause: keepost more.

10-09-2002, 02:40 PM
Excellent. How do you get the water eyeline? :)

10-09-2002, 02:42 PM
your textures are fantastic !
and material parameters are very well set
only some 3S is missing for a perfect skin material.
I think you could improve the modelling again with adding more detail in it.

:buttrock: :buttrock:

10-09-2002, 02:42 PM
2) The wrinkle here a little strange, just check it out.
Good stuff :applause: keepost more.

10-09-2002, 02:43 PM
wholey crap!

two weeks?

that is amazing work, just spectacular!

10-09-2002, 02:50 PM
Reality3D "How do you get the water eyeline?"

I think he model a bended plane which folows the eyeball and eyelid curve and assign a transparent shader to it with specular.
well this is the technique I use for my models. But I will be interrested to know if he has another way to do it.

ROTFLOL!!!! I was *just* saying the same thing to the peeps here. Like its Tarkin before he became a Grand Moff or something.

Pretty good stuff! (I agree about the brow wrinkle -but supahstar quality none-the-less)

peace d=^)

10-09-2002, 05:22 PM
Hey would you be interested in a job? That is damn good and the high polygon look we are going for. If so contact me.

:buttrock: whaouuuu, impressive!!! :thumbsup:

if I can allow a small remark, the black spots on the nose, are too large not?

marvellous work of textures!!!

please comment my old computer! (

10-09-2002, 05:42 PM
:surprised Amazing....absolutely amazing! The talent on these boards never ceases to amaze me.

Great job.

10-09-2002, 06:42 PM
Amazing work!!! :applause: impressive textures!
How big was the resolution that you used for the headtexture???

10-09-2002, 09:12 PM
lol theres not much I can say that has already been I'll say: Bah! That sucks! We need some real talent around here!

10-09-2002, 09:32 PM
That is really awesome!

10-09-2002, 09:40 PM
Great model fantastic textures. Did you hand paint the textures from scratch or start with a base photograph? How about the hairs (eyebrow, eye lashes, stuble) are those painted or actual polygons? How about a wireframe?

Again, GREAT work. :buttrock:

Excellent work, the only thing that looks a little odd is the nearside of the ear. I think that is one of the most impressive skins, I've ever seen. Great texture, bump and specularity.

The guy looks like a very young Peter Cushing too :) :bounce:

10-09-2002, 11:30 PM
dude, what i love about this post is how unique and
lively your character is.

not obly does he look very real, he's loaded with personality.

excellent work.

10-09-2002, 11:32 PM
hey, VERY nice details, can you post a mesh shot?

10-10-2002, 02:07 AM
Hello !

Well done - superb
Your shading is perfect

Hard to add any critque but if I was to change anything it would be to darken the ear - not that the ear tones are too light but because compositionally my eye is drawn to the ear. A light area offset to the edge will always have that effect. The attention deserves to remain with the strength of your image - the eyes.

Bravo !!!


10-10-2002, 04:17 AM
A very good jobthe modelling seem good but your textures make it appear "near to reality" Someone ask you to check the wrinkle between the eyes... peter cushing have this little mark as seen on these pics again great job I know that you dont want to reproduce Moff tarkin but it will be cool, now you have the head,the hat what about the body..

10-10-2002, 04:55 AM
Very nice texturing!

See Ya,
Philip Nelson

10-10-2002, 06:12 AM
Amazing... :beer: :drool:
I like your textures.

10-10-2002, 06:30 AM

Just checked my ass. On target, Marty25. Goes to show you how wonderfully unique the human form is, and how hard it is to sift the good werd from my bad.


10-10-2002, 07:49 PM
Someone had said they would like to see the bump maps.

I agree.

Could you please post an image of the bump map?

10-10-2002, 08:53 PM
no comments............very nice...........

:bounce: :scream: :surprised :applause: :shame:

10-11-2002, 04:46 AM
this is my bump map

10-11-2002, 06:05 AM
Thank you for taking the time to post the bump maps.

Very interesting.

Frank Dodd
10-11-2002, 07:08 PM
Yes thanks for those bumps, its very intresting to see the shapes and layers you used in creating that very realistic effect.

10-11-2002, 11:18 PM
very nice work!
Can you post any map?
how many map do u use? bump, specular, diffuse and..?
once again a beautiful work.:buttrock:

10-12-2002, 07:21 AM
could we possibly see what your diffuse map looks like?

10-13-2002, 12:36 PM

these textures are really very, very well made/applied, no question...

...but I think he would look more real, if the eyes would reflect the environment a bit (like it always is in reality) and become more 'glass-look' (remember, the eyes are always a bit wet)...

Just my two cents


10-14-2002, 02:41 AM
Could you show us a wireframe?

10-14-2002, 10:02 AM
hi that is reallly really great work man well done.

by the way that's the late great actor peter cushing, star of many Hammer's horror and fantasy films from the 60s and 70s


10-14-2002, 10:26 AM
incredible work on texture !!!


10-19-2002, 01:52 AM
wow! maybe some day i can do this. he could use a nice exfoliating scrub for his face ;) excellent!

10-19-2002, 03:24 AM

10-19-2002, 05:42 AM
