09 September 2005, 04:06 PM
Hey ,
Zubuyer, Good luck with your entry and nice to see you here again.

09 September 2005, 04:29 PM
hey thanx all you guys for ur warm welcome!!

Okay now lets try to squze something out of my brain.... I'm just thinking abt some random ideas. Just because the scope of this challange is o massive its really hard to put the mind on one subject. But lets try....

here is the idea list

#1. A glimpse of a bunch of people running toward the camera and in the background a huge F5 twister chasing them while it sucks almost everything from the ground like house, cars, trucks and all.

#2. An aircraft crashed into the Eiffel tower and hangs in there while thousands of ppl stares at it in awe.

#3. A shot of airplane in mid air going through a major malfunction. Its roof is completely blown away while the passengers inside waits to face the worst.

#4. some fire fighters struggling to extinguish a huge fire while a huge explosion shakes the ground.

#5. a stealth fighter jet sneaks into a big city and deploys 2 missiles. One of them already found its was through a high-rise building and explodes and another is just released.

okay most of them r kinda cliche... but lets see how i can mix em up and come up with something original... well its actually how you view the idea that makes it original not the subject rite?... so gimmi your thoughts on it

09 September 2005, 04:34 PM
grrrrrrrrrrrrreat to see you're in! jippie! another wild ride ahead! best luck and have loadsa fun my friend!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 04:35 PM
but lets see how i can mix em up and come up with something original...

haha and the remix !

A glimpse of a bunch of people running
crashed into the Eiffel tower
huge explosion shakes the ground
some fire fighters struggling to extinguish a huge fire
and of corse
a stealth fighter
in the sky

great scene :D

09 September 2005, 04:44 PM
OMG!! man that its gonna b a hilarious tragidy that will take not 90 days but 90 months to come upwitht eh final scene... but i sure can imagin it in my mind.. and i like what i see there... huoiahauhauahauah ppl head banging on the Eiffel tower's iron beams as it explodes mmahahahaaaa :scream:

09 September 2005, 05:19 PM
90 month, nooooo comon' it will be easy :D hahaha... !!!

09 September 2005, 05:31 PM
waaa u want me to make bunch of people running and crashed into the Eiffel tower plus huge explosion shakes the ground with some fire fighters struggling to extinguish a huge fire
and of corse a stealth fighter in the sky less then that time!?? well not mayb 90 months but 9 months atleast to come up with a moderate realism and detail of that desaster .. huhahah but that wud have been one heck of a show tho :D

okay new idea, what abt a meteor shower in the middle of a crowded city while hundreds of ppl tries to run away and tons of cars get smashed by the flaming meteors... hmm that might just be crazy enough to make a good image... what do u think ppl?... mayb i'll post some concept works on this soon... but now i'm gonna go take some rest... feeling really tired with all the excitement today.

09 September 2005, 06:45 PM
Best of luck OC. Time for some mass mayhem :D

09 September 2005, 08:17 PM
Glad you decided to join in. Good luck:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:31 PM
Yes! Good luck Zubuyer... Enjoy the ride;)

09 September 2005, 06:46 AM
lol, how about the stealth fighter lost contoll too chopped off the top of the eiffel tower wich fell down and left a whole track of destruction sliding down the champs elysses... :p
i can picture Jean Reno enter the scene sayin' something like "messieurs et medames, tis is not de right moment to panique, hien" when he sees the the desaster he sais "merde, sacre...":p
uhm. i better stop this. lol, fancy plan. Master of disaster :D

09 September 2005, 07:20 AM
hehe yeah talk abt a desaster ay... man that is crazy i tell u!! wudnt it be soo much fun to do an image like that...

anyways i'm thinkin of a focused image like a perticuler event or a dinamic split second action... who knows... still thinking

09 September 2005, 07:48 AM
Best of luck buddy!

09 September 2005, 09:16 AM
• Great to see u in Zubuyer! I wish you Spectacular Fun in this new challenge! HIT IT! :beer:

09 September 2005, 03:22 PM
good luck man!!:bounce: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:52 PM
hey there, glad to see you back for another run

out of your ideas, I like 5 the most

09 September 2005, 09:51 PM (

Okay, here is my concept. Its about a city being hit by a huge storm which also gave birth to a huge F4 twister. Which also happen to land its tail rite in the middle of the city and run literally like the wind. Hundreds of people on the street starts to run for their lives while trash and debrie fly all over the place. In this moment a photographer takes this spectacular shot of the twister rushing toward him.
And there you have it... now let me know what you all think.

09 September 2005, 10:24 PM
Hey overcontrast, good to see you here again. Good luck :beer:
*subscribe* :twisted:

09 September 2005, 10:28 PM
The "wizard" is back with us....welcome pal,just saw you.

09 September 2005, 10:28 PM
Nice work, and great perspective :)

Good luck mate :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:55 PM
very cool!, good luck !great sense of scale there

09 September 2005, 11:21 PM
I like the concept. Have you though of having debris thrown in front of the twister as well. Perhaps a car looming in the air over the nearest people in the photo? Also, people who are holding on to something trying not to get sucked in? Just some ideas for you.

09 September 2005, 11:29 PM
thanx guys

OvidsMuse: yeah totally... if i lock into this concept i'll through everything i can in the sky... trash, debrie, cars, people or mayb even a cow (naaaa).. thanx for the ideas tho

09 September 2005, 11:35 PM
Nice concept; a couple of comments.

An F4 tornado would be much bigger than this. It would look like a wall of clouds and debris as opposed to a cliché type funnel. That's not to say that an F2 wouldn't be terribly inconvenient in a downtown! Also, with a downtown corridor, the winds wouldn't be totally rounded... you'd get a lot of push down-street, and tunneling (ala Chicago). It would be a mess of particle interaction.

Also, how would you convey emotion? If all your people are far off like this, it's hard to convey the emotion that is suggested in the contest. Perhaps a lower vantage point, so that you can see the sheer terror and chaos on the street? Granted, "a clarity of thought and emotion in their finished images" doesn't absolutely require characters...

Just a few thoughts. :) Good start!

09 September 2005, 11:47 PM
sykosys: thanx for the comment man.. yeah i know F4 looks a lot more bigger then the one in the concept. I just tried to put the elements to covay the basic idea. And in my concept the twister is pretty far away. though i really think the camera angle is too high from the ground... if i do this thing i'll lower the camera angle and put some people infront of it looking scared and rushed. and btw emotion dont always exist on the face. when you watch the news channel showing stranded survivers of the haricane katrina from a helicoupter do u have to zoom in every1's face to get an enotion reading?... no.. and the contest's main idea is to creat an iconic image that you can call 'Spectacular'... and i'll try my best to do that... o dosent the challange rule also say u dont really have to even use character?...
anyways thanx so much for the ideas again... hope to see you around :)

09 September 2005, 11:55 PM
Awesome sketch, great colour work, keep it up!

09 September 2005, 12:01 AM
Hey, I agree, totally. Though I think despair carries more in body language than terror; from a distance, it's hard to tell is someone is running for fun, or running for their lives. Though I suppose if you have a few people getting trampled, tripping, et al., you can convey more.

Quite frankly, I hope that emotion neen't be carried by characters. I'm a terrible character modeller, so the fewer the better. ;)

09 September 2005, 12:15 AM
yeah, thats y i said ill drop the camera angle to capture some fo those priceless expressions on the fritened ppl's face... lets see what i can do with it.. ill start modeling sood i guess :argh:

09 September 2005, 12:18 AM
Good luck:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 01:09 AM
Very destructive concept:scream:
U can put tons of stuff in this,cant wait to see more from u:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:27 AM
Very cool viewpoint and looks like you're really using those creative juices. I'm excited to see what you decide to do! Good luck.

09 September 2005, 03:49 AM
It seem your scene will be very big! but great!

09 September 2005, 04:57 AM
Looks spectacular already. I like the angle of the camera. Good luck!

09 September 2005, 06:56 AM
Beautiful sketch Zubuyer! This is going to be a pleasure to follow I'm sure - good luck!

09 September 2005, 07:09 AM
Nice concept - I like the feel of the colouring and the exaggerated perspective.

09 September 2005, 07:26 AM
Very interesting concept ! and I like the first pov that you have !

09 September 2005, 07:36 AM
Good starting point with your sketch... I can imagine your style employed on this kind of scene... that will be another time a very strong image, with an heavy mood... :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 07:37 AM
Very nice Concept.

Good luck Man.

09 September 2005, 09:11 AM
cool concept I like that :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 06:11 AM (

okay, thanx for all your comments guys. Well the last concept didnt really worked out for me that good. It didnt have that energy i wanted. So came up with this new one. I was watching lord of the ring and suddenly got an idea to do a battle scene. so here it is, the drawing pretty much tells the whole story. Its a spectacular moment from an epic battle fought for good.

I wanted to do this cause it'll give me more oppertunity to work with characters in motion, and i like the dinamics of it too. And i always love to do dusty and moody pictures so this seems a better idea..

Give me your thoughts on it.

09 September 2005, 06:36 AM
Both ideas are excellent. And have excellent potential. I look forward to following along with which ever concept you follow.

09 September 2005, 07:37 AM
My suggestion is go for the second concept, looks more promising to me.
All the best dude:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 07:37 AM
Maybe if you could change something,,cos this looks way to LOTR kinda image.

Maybe if the riders dont ride horses but elephants or rhinos,,,or some other powerfoul animals,,
Just a sugestion,,But whatever you do,,i like this one much more.

09 September 2005, 08:28 AM
This is an really strong concept and image/visual... just it can be a strong ammount of work... but wow :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:28 AM
• Yeah, Battles are always spectacular, I can allready feel that energy! :buttrock:

09 September 2005, 08:33 AM
Good sence of motion in this concept, i think its very good concept :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:34 AM
thanx for the comments guys

A I R: thanx buddy... well i'm not goin for anything imaginary i guess, so i guess i'll stick to realistic medivel war here. my goal here is to create an image that got a lot of motion in it lets c what i can do abt it.

jddog: hehe yeah the work is kinda scareing me, cause the final image will have a lot more horses and riders in it... but hey its not called a challange for nothing rite ;)

09 September 2005, 09:03 AM
hey cool concept ... one hell of scene this will be :D!

09 September 2005, 09:34 AM
it should be interesting, look forward to this topic :)

09 September 2005, 11:57 AM
Cool concept sketch, it's got a lot of energy and is really epic in scale. It should be fun to model, I can't wait to see it finished with dust and lighting effects. Best of luck, Alexi.

09 September 2005, 01:45 PM
heya, that last concept is excellent, fast paced and epic!

09 September 2005, 02:12 PM
Hey Zubuyer,
Nice to see you again . I like all of your concepts , the battle one has lots of potential . I think it will be a tough one with all the characters in motion, but I know you are up to the challenge. Good luck

09 September 2005, 02:35 PM
very epic i like it..

09 September 2005, 01:10 AM
hey thanx guys... glad that you liked it. right now i'm gathering references and all... i'll most porbobly start the modeling tomorrow. Till then tell me more on what u thik of the concept or any suggestion u have. Thanx all again and c y'all around

09 September 2005, 09:09 AM
hey, glad you are in the contest good man!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:43 AM
The concept looks spectacular and cool. It does kind of remind me too much of LOTR and many other epic war films. But it all depends on the execution right? :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 05:52 PM
Super theme at all... a cavalry charge.
Do you know that if i havent decide to make another thing my 2D entry might be looking something similar :wavey:

09 September 2005, 07:58 AM
I think the first concept was better. Are u sure you are switching?

09 September 2005, 08:06 AM
Veeeeeery nice concept, lots of speed and a good camera angle to match. Once you translate that velocity to 3D, you'll have a great image on your hands.

09 September 2005, 07:31 AM
deffinately i high impact image... shall look forward to seeing how it all turns out

09 September 2005, 08:52 AM
hi zubuyer,
cool to see another historic war scene in the challenge for comparison, so you can be sure i like your concept :).

09 September 2005, 09:59 AM
Interessant zubuluyer. It will be a huge work but you can make it.

09 September 2005, 10:50 AM
waow great idea ! Hard work is waiting you !
Good luck and have fun :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:07 PM
Yup a very ambitious piece, will look good in the end. Subscribed! Oh, and good to see you in here again!


09 September 2005, 05:05 PM

Good to see U my friend!:buttrock:

waouwww both concept are really cool... and a lot of work to do... i'm waiting to see more!!

Good luck! :beer:

09 September 2005, 06:56 AM (

Okay started on the horse model. This will eventualy be ZBrushed... let me know what you think... more comming soon... so stay tuned.

09 September 2005, 07:13 AM
thats good! i need to make a horse, too. but i don`t think it`s going to be as good. i`ve never modelled a horse before. what reference did you use??

09 September 2005, 07:19 AM
Zongo: thanx man, the model still needs a lot of works... for reference i did an image search on google for 'horse' and downloaded as much hi-res horse image i can get. btw this is my first time modeling a horse too.

09 September 2005, 07:22 AM
thats a beautifull horse! hmm where's the tail :).! great work and clean wires!

09 September 2005, 07:23 AM
damn it! i hoped you were some sort of professional horse modeller :)

09 September 2005, 07:26 AM
Cool modeling of the Animal :)

Good luck with your idea.

09 September 2005, 07:27 AM
yunisirees: thanx man, i'll put the tail in the next update with some more accesories on him.

Zongo hehe yeah rite! me and a professional... funny

09 September 2005, 07:38 AM
I like your horse. I bet the ZBrushed version will look eery bit cool ;)

09 September 2005, 09:00 AM
Hi Overcontrastmnice 2 see u on this challnge.that horse looks cool,i just think that eyes are a bit off,and the lower jaw is a bit weird,and back legs are too tiny..i donno whether u have modelled this with a refrence,these are the things that suddenly came to my eye!
very good job,so far!:D

09 September 2005, 09:07 AM
a battle scene ! lonely ! you're great worker or you're crazy :p :D
great modeling as well, maybe horse need more muscles on back legs.
I keep an eye on your thread man ! :)

09 September 2005, 09:16 AM
how many hours have u spent on modelling of this horse?:D

09 September 2005, 09:22 AM
Yongkiat: thanx man

SweD: hehe yeah guess i'm crazy :p but lets c where this thing goes.

Madlight_1988: i spent like abt 3 hours on the model till now... and right as i write this, i'm working on its update... thanx for droppin by

09 September 2005, 02:17 PM
Hmm interesting already, although I think it might not be that neccesary to zbrush your horse, unless it's some ogre-type of warrior horse. The injuries and all that can be textured I think. Oh well, as long as you get the result, keep going!


09 September 2005, 03:24 PM
Interesitng model of the horse! The back leg needs work though! will check back lata!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 05:31 PM
Hi, nice work on modeling, agree with the back legs... seems to be too thin... but anyway, it's a good start... waiting to see update... :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 06:29 PM
hey overcontrast! Look interesting you're challenge. If there is so many calvary, don't forget to split you scene and comp all the layers. You're talentuous, so...

09 September 2005, 06:48 PM
Hai, man great start. U r doing good , dude . Hai I know its wip but I think the back leg need some work :scream: . Nice concept :thumbsup: .

09 September 2005, 06:54 PM
Hey overcontrast! I've just notice you're here too. Cool!
Already doing amazings things ah? Good luck.

09 September 2005, 07:03 PM
Looking good OC! I'm not sure about the front upper leg muscles tho... maybe those 'cuts' are a little exaggerated? Fine work allround though dude:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 07:10 PM
• Good to see u horsing around :thumbsup:, cool modeling keep it up!

09 September 2005, 03:29 AM
hey thanx for the comments and critiqs ppl... yeah the back legs surely looks less musculer then the front, so i did fixed it. Right now i'm working on the armors and accesories of the horse. I'll have to make atleast 10 version of the horse gear to keep a feel of randomization. And right after i finish modeling the horses i'll start modeling the riders... and there i also have to make atleast 10 different ranks of riders... and ofcourse the enemies... o god!! theres so much to do... anyways i'll keep u updated and thanx once again for dorpping by :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:50 AM
Great start so far and I checked out your m&s entry. WOW! I love it. So I'm sure this one will blow my mind too. I feel you on the "impossibly complex" issue. My entry is super complex too. But it will be a good experience despite the hard work I am sure.

The horse looks good so far but I think the legs look short and stubby and the neck could be made quite a bit longer. If you want some great horse references, look at some of the sculptures and paintings done by Remington. He was a horse expert in his artwork. His stuff will really help with showing you where to sculpt in the various muscles in the horses legs and neck. Good luck!

09 September 2005, 08:33 AM
Good start with horse modeling. I wont crit right now because you have just started and for the start model looks impressive.

Keep up the good work dude:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:40 AM (

Here is an update. This will be the horse that carries the normal army. The hair and tail is done using plane applied with alpha maps. Next I'll work on the royal guard's horse.

09 September 2005, 10:11 AM
a very nice model you have there... the only thing that kind of bugs me are the muscles in the back legs seem too large but other than that great work:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:44 AM
Damn fine looking horse you got there, Zubuyer :thumbsup: A real heavy type to carry all that weight, very good.

09 September 2005, 10:57 AM
yeah,now thisis a horse of WAR! that Armor is damn cool,dude! keep it up!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:05 AM
WOW ! nice model ! man , put the armor to him , it will look awesome!

09 September 2005, 11:09 AM
Impressive model !

09 September 2005, 11:10 AM
Very nice model of a horse, keep it up!

09 September 2005, 11:10 AM
Great concept , overcontrast, very dramatic. Your modelling is top notch as always, very clean and precise. I am very interesting to see who this develops :D

09 September 2005, 11:28 AM
So far so good:)

09 September 2005, 11:35 AM
what a horse! :) but the seat needs a bit more work I think... :)

09 September 2005, 11:52 AM
wow, great model u have there, nothing to crit. The hair looks really well done too.

09 September 2005, 12:43 PM
Hey Zubuyer,
The horse looks very convincing , great job on this:thumbsup: . I do think the hind legs(rear end) should still be a little larger. Look forward to your characters

09 September 2005, 12:47 PM
I am liking the horse model, great job on to the next thing!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:50 PM
Nothing more to add than really beautiful horse... very sweet to watch... :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:54 PM
Nice modeling update, Impressive details. Well just a suggestion, if there could be a sword carrier or something like that, I dont know the proper term for a sword carrier made of leather and metal details on one side of the horse might look really cool:) Keep up the good work:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:59 PM
cool horse keep it up :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 01:35 PM
hey Zubuyer! thats a damn fine looking horse! wanna see it galloping now:)!

09 September 2005, 01:36 PM
very nice horse model my friend.. some one eariler mentioned a Scabbard and some kewl details on it for the sword.. i agree 100% that would be a nice addition to the horse!

09 September 2005, 02:06 PM
whooa thanx guys for all these nice comments and suggestions.... yeah i'm gonna put some more stuff on the horse like Scabbard and sword and some more belts and buckles, i donno arrow holder and stuff... i'll keep u all updated.... thank you all so much for ur support.... keep em comming :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 02:51 PM
hey man good organic modeling abilities so far ... i guess it will be cool if u focus more on the muscle groups and so :)
good luck :applause:

09 September 2005, 03:01 PM
Impressive Generic Horse! :thumbsup: nothing to add

09 September 2005, 06:21 PM
I'm sorry, but I still have to insist that the neck and the legs should be longer... Unless of course the breed of horse that you are making is more of a stumpy and compact breed.

I think the modeling is great anyhow. Keep up the good work!

Btw, the hair on the mane is standing up here. Is that what the hair in your reference horse does? I've never seen a horse with its mane standing straight up like that. Normally the mane drapes down like so.

09 September 2005, 07:46 PM

great. every accessories are interesting, It's a nice start. Maybe In the first look I have an issue with the proportion of the legs. But I have to check out that.
carry on dude. good luck

09 September 2005, 09:38 PM
Very good modeling :beer:

I think you should keep an eye on the front leg. That top muscle looks a little weird to me

That mane looks cool. I wait to see the "lying down" version :)

09 September 2005, 12:47 AM
hey mate i agree about the neck a bit longer...but model is really so perfect and clean...ill make a horse too...but dam now mine will look really ugly after looking your great model....keep rocking mate!

09 September 2005, 02:55 AM
Nice horse. Was this modeled using subdivision. Or did you do some displacement mapping

09 September 2005, 03:01 AM
Oh...I love your horse model...really amazing :) the hair and tail especially. Great work!!

09 September 2005, 04:19 AM
Rotab3D: thanx man, will do that

collings: thanx mate

gardogg: yeah i'm seeing it now too, the neck and the hind legs being short makes the whole horse small... i'll fix it in the next update. And about the mane, some of my reference images do have that attribute. like so.
But i think i'll make it more natural and let it rest over the neck. Thanx for ur helpful critique.

venum: thanx man, i'll look into it too. glad that you liked it.

nemirc: hehe yeah i know the front leg muscle was intentionally made a bit exaggerated, thought it looked cool, but i'll soften it down in the next updates. Thanx for your support.

rattlesnake: lol, thanx mate, i'm sure ur horse is gonna look better then mine... i really like ur works. good luck.

ugnmoooo: it was all done with poly modeling or subdivision or displacement maps. At first i thought of using ZBrush, but i dont think i'll b needing that much.

Yongkiat: thanx man, i'm really glad that you liked it.

thanx for all ur support once again guys...

09 September 2005, 09:09 AM
Impressive work zubuyer.
As I have someone near me who really knows horses, I can give you 2 advice for more realism if needed :
the bottom thigh could be larger, coming more near the whole body.
The part between the leg and the foot can be smaller.
But it's really impressive like that.

• Hi Zub, I think you could try enlarging his legs...just a little, It will look more elegant :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:57 PM
Your modeling is amazing! This horse is really elegant, can't wait to see it in action!

09 September 2005, 10:09 PM
Nice update of the horse...great work... go on to this way and i'm sure your final image will be very spectacular!!

Well done!! :beer:

09 September 2005, 05:34 AM
Hungry for updates:bounce: :bounce:

09 September 2005, 06:10 AM (

I was doing some design sketches for the look of the troop leader or the overall army style. I wanted to go for an Arabian style combined with some fancy armor.
I'm working on the other horse modeling but meanwhile I thought I’ll share some drawings with u all. Give me your thoughts on it...

09 September 2005, 06:33 AM
If he is the troop leader, I'd make him look older. He looks 19 right now. Also I'd add a moustache to him to go with the beard (I know its just a sketch but you asked what we thought!) Awesome sketch by the way. Love the shield on his arm, the knife, even your sketching style! You're progressing nicely.

By the way, in the picture you have posted, that mane is standing up like that because the horse is running and while running the mane does many tosses in the air - hence the mane is standing straight up in that picture. If you are going for a blowing mane look, try something like so:

or maybe

The long blowing hair in these shots really makes the horse look beatiful and majestic and also give the feeling of motion which is always a good thing to portray in a still picture.

You're doing great so far. Keep it up!

09 September 2005, 10:08 AM
Hello overcontrast, what a really good sketch, and what a great commentary of gardogg. I totally agree with his suggestions. Ride on! :)

09 September 2005, 12:46 PM

09 September 2005, 02:09 PM

Hey Zubuyer,

The character sketch looks like it is on the money to me, good job :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:26 PM
Gee , that's going to be powerfull and epic! So much work ahead for you. :scream: I prefer the second concept, it's way more interesting.
Good luck mate, I'll come again soon to see your progress. :thumbsup: :)

09 September 2005, 08:21 PM (

Okay dosent looks that much but a lot of work still needs to be done and stuffs to be added. But thought I'd share some WIP with all of u anyway.

09 September 2005, 08:32 PM
hmm,that is really cool,Overcontrast,the hair on its neck(i donoo what its called in english!)needs a littlee more intensity,and some randome rotated ones...i donno,i just fell like thanx again for those images!

09 September 2005, 08:37 PM
o god yeah, it looks horrible rite now, but feeling really sleepy and lazy rite now, so i'll keep it down for tomorrow... i'll work on the overall textureing more and keep u all updated

09 September 2005, 08:54 PM
Well done for the sketch, and nice start for texture, really cool!! Keep going ! :beer:

09 September 2005, 09:49 PM
The concept is fantastic

Great modeling overcontrast... i see the front legs a bit short

Good luck!!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:55 PM
Hey Zubuyer,

That is an excellent horse and the saddle reins look great. Good job.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:25 PM
you have stretching texture in front of him below his neck! Good stuff so far, holla!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 05:50 AM
Cool texturing.
Are you going to add or simulate fur in any way? :D

09 September 2005, 08:14 AM
Really nice work there overcontrast, not surprised after I discovered your prvious works. Great stuff :thumbsup: :)

09 September 2005, 09:53 AM
Wow, you made a great job for the horse texture.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:59 AM
Great Job Zubuyer ! Nice horse...
Did u use planar mapping in X ? I think we see it ...

09 September 2005, 09:37 AM
There is a little bit of stretching as textures are concerened, but you will be able to fix it.
The horse looks cool:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 01:23 PM
Look at the chest (the texture). You should improve the specular light, like crin (horsehair) , and the color is very light, more brown perhaps.

Have fun.

09 September 2005, 01:27 PM
the texture is so cool , but I think the UVs of front of hours need soime edit . try too fixing .goodluck ...

09 September 2005, 03:38 PM
Veri nice sketchind modelling and texturing, mate. Very nice.
Just one little tip. If you could place some recognizable elements of city architecture inside the twister (like they are already flying inside it) it could be a great addition to atmosphere of the whole scene. I mean really huge elemets.

Sorry for my terrible english, I hoppe you understand what I say.

Good luck.

09 September 2005, 04:06 PM
thanx all you guys. Yes the textureing needs more work. I cudnt find much time to work on this project. But on the next update i'll fix the errors and show u some more models.

suk-grigorij: mmmm dude thanx for the comment, but i already abandened the twister concept. Thanx for droping by anyways.

09 September 2005, 04:51 PM
great work on that horse, loking forvard for more great work. see you and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 05:59 PM
HI Overcontrast, nice horse you have, is missing some details in the musculo-skeletal structure but is nice, is a generic horse like you said, no need to much detail, i made a mistake with my horse tu many polys and detail for the final image that "maybe" I don`t need, don`t make the same mistake.

Good Luck


09 September 2005, 06:09 PM
Such a wonderful horse, very well modeled.. It must have took you a lot of effort for this.. Great job.

09 September 2005, 12:28 PM
Hello overcontrast, for me your horse looks great... well you're the one that said that it was not finished... I'll wait right here then :) good job.

09 September 2005, 08:12 PM
looking good overcontrast. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before... I feel like the horse hair on the neck can be improved further... probably should be longer

09 September 2005, 04:57 PM
