Hope u like it!

09 September 2005, 10:57 PM
Cool ali,
Do U want to design Motors for your special horse!!!?
A BIG once :D

Keep it up.:bounce:

09 September 2005, 09:19 AM
Lemog,MR Micro,Adel And bahman,thanx a lot guys!
bout addind some motors or things like that,i must say that the attractiveness of it is in being so simple at the same time tricky! it dosnt gather any attention at first,but then it shows off!:D
thx anyway...

09 September 2005, 12:13 PM (

ok,guys,heres the main character,cheater!:D

09 September 2005, 12:16 PM (

heres another one,ofcourse its not a female character,that hair will help him to look more fool!:D i'll upload other characters and their horses soon...c&c are the most welcome

09 September 2005, 04:23 PM
Hi ali i hope you luck in this challenges.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 07:29 PM
Nice concept ali
looking for more
is it realstic or cartoonish?

09 September 2005, 08:37 PM
thanx guys,yeah a good question..this is sth between real and fantasy,ofcourse i know that the boarderline between them is soooo thiin,and tricky! am going to try it out!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:27 PM (

this is the chater,front view,just to express his character and personality.

09 September 2005, 09:32 PM (

this is a sketch of the possible face expressions of the chater's horse.c&c?

09 September 2005, 09:35 PM (

here's another one! this is the other horserider,u can see that he is tired,he is surprised,and he fears a little!

09 September 2005, 10:10 PM
This last horserider is fantastic, very expressive... better :thumbsup:

About the horse, if you want to keep in the same style... maybe it need to be more expressive... with amplified details... as its master :D

09 September 2005, 10:14 PM
Oh , nice concept dude .hope to see more progress on it .:bounce:

09 September 2005, 11:25 PM

09 September 2005, 07:47 AM

Lemog,thanx alot,ur right,i was thinkin of that too,but what do u mean by "amplified"? or u mean "samplified?"! anyway,thats right,i'll take this advice,thanx!!
I just think "amplified" at the shape level, as your previous red sketch of the horse rider... more angular, and more caricatural... :)

09 September 2005, 08:26 AM
You are a great artist and you have nice drawing skills. I like the concept, it is a nice funny concept.
I like the second horse riders expression it looks cool.
Waiting for more updates this scene is gonna look funny as well as great.:)

09 September 2005, 10:44 AM
Lemog,yeah i got it! weirdness is my favorit!:D anyway,i'll examin that! thanx for the continious suport!:D
Madshooter,thanx a lot,mate...seems that u guys like the second hrider more! okay,
switching to that mode!:deal:

09 September 2005, 11:01 AM
Okay now... what is it they're adding to the drinking water over there anyway? I see so many incredible talents specifically from Iran these days...

Very funny stuff going on here, and I love the expression on the top-most guy in the very first rough sketch :D Great concept!

09 September 2005, 12:19 PM

09 September 2005, 10:56 AM
Nice ali
a little crit:
(behtar nabood ke fak va paine ostokhane jomjome dar yek emtedad bood?)
sorry for my poor english

09 September 2005, 11:43 AM
tHANX ALSHAKNO, for those who couldnt catch what he said:
"wasnt it better for the jaw to be at the straight line along the skull's bone?"
now the answer,i must say that cuz its a toonlike head,and its between real and toon,i have designed that just to somehow complete his helps me to express the feelings better,a very small jaw helps me out to express the "astounished"figure of the horserider...
anyway thanx for dropping by....:Dmamnoon agha...

09 September 2005, 11:45 AM (

hey guys,some added details....

09 September 2005, 11:50 AM (

09 September 2005, 05:09 PM (

hey guys,after some few days,im back with updates...ofcourse i must add that things like glassess are not photorealistic,iv designed them frome what i had in mind,...andofourse this is a WIP,i must add detailes to the bands and some more stuff must be added to the face area,so keep commenting,guys,.

09 September 2005, 05:11 PM (


09 September 2005, 08:40 PM (

hey guys,i retouched and completed the bands and then imported back to ZB,and add some more detailes and subdivide it once,and then rendered..i rendered the scene in max too,but not with skylight,this is done be 40 spotlights and 2 omnis,which helps u not to lose ur ZB details! c&C?

09 September 2005, 09:42 PM
that's awesome man, great concept... I envy your ZB skills!

keep it up

09 September 2005, 04:55 AM

09 September 2005, 09:23 PM
Versiden,Thanx man..:D

ChrisD01,thanx mate,ofcourse i havnt yet used them,but ill use disp maps as soon as i finish this head up!

Lemog,maan,im surprised with these nice words! thanx alot! iv got some extra energy!

ali_rahimi_3d,Thanx Ali,but i think,this character has enough details,u know i dont want to make even macrooscopic textures of the skin and ... remember that this is more TOON rather than Real! thanx for dropping by...

madshooter,Fredy,suk-grigorij,3rd user,LAURO_MX,fgcity,yunisirees,daWinky,N_krypsh_N: So much thanx for these great words and support,im happy that uv liked it folks!

Climax,come on man,i cant say this is easy,but U have the ability and power to use it,for someone like u it might be like drinkin water! just play around with it,ull learn the basics,and then some practice(some means lots of!) and thats it,ur MASTER! ofcourse it dosnt do miracles,but indispensibile tool for 3d artists! ZBrush helps my mind aloot,i feel i can execute whatever i want,its so good to be behaved like this! man,just start it! goodluck!:thumbsup:

so much thanx people,very kind words,keep putting feedback...


09 September 2005, 05:53 AM
Lemog,maan,im surprised with these nice words! thanx alot! iv got some extra energy!
Don't be surprise Ali... I'm just in admiration, in front of a kind of realization that I could neither imagine, nor to realize it... it's your particular style, that's all... cheers mate :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 04:51 PM
Good work ali, I will follow It & waiting for next big changes. Good luck!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:09 PM
hey there.. you have a damn cool concept!!!. have a lot of luck here and hope you have fun finishing this!.. Nice zbrush work :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:35 AM (

hey guys,iv started modelling the body,heres a very early Zspheres im going to use,any c&c?

09 September 2005, 11:40 AM
Lemog,thanx man,im speechless! :shrug:
Bahman,Thanx mate!
stripe,Thanx Stripe,not as good as u!
hey guys,ill be workin on the body for sometime,and will show u what iv came up with,its really hard to execute those kinda clothes! any suggestions/crits?:)

09 September 2005, 08:37 PM (

hey guys,after an hour!

09 September 2005, 08:43 PM (

Hey folks,iv textured whole job was done in like 2 or 3 hours,but i learned alot,the shader took me 20 minutes,and texturing 20 minuts,modelling 1hour...c&c? i'll give a brief summary...some material setups and ZScripts maybe! thanx for visiting...

09 September 2005, 08:46 PM
This is a great update! My only crits would be that the hands need some work and the stripes I don't think should carry over from the back onto the arms like that. The stripes on the arms should be separate from those on the back.

09 September 2005, 09:16 PM
hello my dear friend "ahamd ali" .

i hope you will be fine . i wish you arrive your concept soon and clearly .

i join this challenge and i am in concepting now but i submit my sketches soon .


09 September 2005, 09:32 PM (

this one is just to show how the head will look like on this body,ofcourse not precisely! and i forgot to say,the shoes are not DONE at all,thats just a blurry thing which i have in my mind,ill model that later!
c&Si are the most welcome!

09 September 2005, 09:32 PM
very good modeling and texturing too but I think the hands and legs are unnormal.they need more work.any way good work man :thumbsup: .continue........

09 September 2005, 09:41 PM
Nice rider, i love your modeling style and your concept :)

The textures are cool but i find the cloths a bit too shiny. I's look more wet than shiny. ;)

09 September 2005, 09:48 PM

gardogg,Thanx man,ur totally right bout the stripes,NOW im fixing that! thanx...
x3dman,Howr ya,X3DMAN! im happy that u have joined too,goodluck,fellow iranian!
Fredy,Thanx man,bout hands ur right,but im just thinkin of FINAL POSE/shot.CUZ I dont have enough time to just go into very deep details,maybe if i got the time...bout foot,i dont feel that,would u explain why? so much thanx for dropping by man,,,,
Goul,Thanx Mate,ur right,i'll go fix that,ofcourse its not that WET!anyway,thanx....

09 September 2005, 09:55 PM

banzato,3rd user,Lemog,jddog:So much thanx,its the result of ur support!

09 September 2005, 03:02 PM (

hey guys,some details....

09 September 2005, 03:02 PM
Hi Madlight!
Very cool zbrushing! the character is being Realy nice :)
I loved this style.
c ya

09 September 2005, 03:05 PM (

Dof added,iv played with different layers of lights,and this is the result..c&C?

09 September 2005, 03:20 PM
Man this a rocking update:buttrock: Dof looks cool dude also the lighting looks promising to me:thumbsup:
Some how I feel there are some problem with the shoes It might be a skinning problem, but over all great job dude:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:44 PM
Yes, this really looks fantastic:thumbsup: ! I already liked the head, but complete it is even better. Though it is just a wip, I think the pose is very good and fits to the style of the head. The only thing I would crit so far is the position of the startnumber on the shirt on the update before. But I don't know how this is positioned on a real jockey-outfit...and you don't use it in recent update:) ! Shaders and dof are great, just some work on hands and shoes and it will be perfect!


09 September 2005, 04:23 PM
hi Madlight_1988
nice zb-ing man! the folds look very realistic on the cloth!nice detailing there!

09 September 2005, 10:45 PM
Hey nice job boy !!
I like the cloth details ;)

10 October 2005, 06:38 PM
I think this is really looking great so far. I would suggest that you fix the hands and boots a little more though. The boots look like gello and the hands look very puffy, as if filled with water or swollen. Outside of that, great! Oh, one more thing, the textures look pixelated on the edges. I don't know what is causing that though.

Much better on the stripes ;)

10 October 2005, 09:52 PM
good job on cloth details....keep it on:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

and sure u would work more on the shoes...:)

10 October 2005, 11:30 PM
Hi Ali, good details in cloth, though his boots need more attention, his legs i think are too short too, lighting and rendering are very good
I have a question 4 you, I've already (since yesterday:scream:) started zbrushing and u were right! once you get into it u start getting the feel of it, i managed to export disp maps to max and applying 'em in it's proper slot, kind of treekie but following a simple tutorial i could made it ok, but when rendering is a pain in the a... pretty slow is it normal, i mean is there any tip you can give me to improve rendering speed? I am rendering with Tsmooth at level 2, tryed mental ray but there is not much diference in time, i'll appreciate any suggestion :thumbsup:

C ya!

10 October 2005, 10:11 AM
Hey guys,thanx alot for your kind words,but i said before: Shoes are not even WIP! and that wouldnt be the final,iv done this not to loos some polys wich i want to tweak when the realshoe is imported to the scene,i would be attaching them more easily,
in 110th post of this thread i explained everything bout shoes....

now replys:
madshooter,Thanx man,sure ill fix that.

daWinky,Thanx man,about the start number,i noticed that too! so u cant see it on the last update,it should be on the left hand,and has its own cloth! thanx for the notice and these kind words!


-REZA-:heyy! atlast an internet connection is found! thanx for dropping by Reza,ur the BIG support!

gardogg,Thanx for the suggestions,mate! bout the hands i said before that cuz in the final shot,there will be no attention put on this part,i have to somehow skipped the details and just an owerall outline to express the form,but totallu ur right,if i got the time sure ill fix that.thanx

kmest,Thanx Reza,iv written a discription on top of this post! have u got any projects?cuz i felt like ur busy and ur thread is bein updated weekly!:D show us what u have in mind!

Climax,thanx for dropping by,man.bout shoes i explained that at first.^bout legs,since its not going to be a photorealistic scene in things like anatomy and facial things and stuff,i don care! i mean my character Design is different and i have executed what which was in my mind 95%!
bout ur problem,i myself do not use disp maps,cuz i found them more time taking to calculate both is ZB and max,of course i must say that,it totally depends on ur model! how many polygons,with how much detailes and how many polygons are in the base mesh and some other issues,but in Max,i use VRay 3d diplacement,and have no idea bout default disp calculator,but in ZB,i use these settings,see the image attached... on ZBrushCentral u can get some really good suggestions and troublshooting as well,i remember there was a thread on ZBCentral that had invited ZB artists and had gave them a ZB model,and asked them to go and export the models with displacement maps within,and then come and show the result and share the settings,wich was really usefull,tons of artists participated,with a little search u can find the thread....i hope u understand what i meant,and i dont think that it was useful,but that all i know about!

10 October 2005, 11:52 AM (

heres a brief tutoial onhow i have rendered the last update..i donno if its useful,i just wanted to share it.ill be sharing some ZScripts and Skin shaders too.currently am a little bit busy!

10 October 2005, 07:04 PM
Hi Ali, I was testing out to see results of displacemt maps inside of max, the default disp of max really really sucks, i rendered a simple model tsmooth level 1,2 and 3 and the result was insainly slow, Mental ray went down, brazil was much more faster but doesn't render good disp maps, and then Vray and voila! it is the perfect 'cuz it has a built in displacement interpretation wich for default overrides max's, with scanline render rendering time was 31 minutes and fairly good at TS level 3, but Vray's rendering time was about 20 second and 200% better! :buttrock:at TS level 1!
Cheers for you man! i appreciate your concern in handing me tips and moral support ( i was about to desist trying :scream: ) you were right, some effort pays at the end!

About your model, sorry i had,'t read the explanation about anatomy issues, but now i know u want a special character, i see it in a different way, i can't wait to see his head up there!

10 October 2005, 07:28 PM
:sad: Ali, great job on the modeling, but...I think the pants look too shiny, like satin or something. Just dosn't look right to me.

P.S. you were supposed to email me!!!:sad:

Hey guys,After a hard and very busy week,i modelled the main character,i decided to redesign the main character,the Cheater,ti be FAT! this will be a good reason for cheating! he used to be a good horserider,but by the time passes,he got fat! ofcours his Horse is FAT too! both of em are ina a bad challenge,he is to cheat!

Was fully made in ZB2,as u see some models of first steps,and u see Edgeloops to,i will be adding some details,and then texturing.I JUST WANT TO MODEL THAT FAT BODY!lol.
C&C are welcome...

Great stile... very good modeling... :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 09:38 PM

You can use Hossein Rezazadeh az refrence .

Wish you succeed .

10 October 2005, 01:36 AM
Hey Ali..hes a great character. Likeim, reaaly fits as a cheater personality. Simply disgusting.

Absolutely on tha way. Just keep this spin my friend it's gonna be a fine piece.

10 October 2005, 05:14 AM
I'm sorry man, but there is not way to critique this! How can I say, "'that looks wrong' or 'change that'?" What I can say is I LOVE IT! It's so darn funny and just downright original. I love your style and look forward to your next update.

10 October 2005, 05:55 AM

good luck:thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 08:00 PM
Cool,that's Great ali...i prefer First,because the second one Shows a little of Magic and that kinda stuff too...if you wanna be mysterious go for the 2nd one...Good Luck

10 October 2005, 08:04 PM
The second appear more vicious... then... it's better :twisted: haha

10 October 2005, 08:18 PM
Wicked! and well integrated into the style you're running with throughout! Matbe a little more exaggeration on his chins will add to his look? LYW:applause:

10 October 2005, 09:57 AM
hey! am surprised with these nice words,guys!3rd user,N_krypsh_N,Goul,gpepper,:so much thanx guys,for all the support!

bout the update,i dont know,cuz,im a little bit busy today! but i'll try my best! thanx again...;) :buttrock:

10 October 2005, 10:14 AM
Wow awesome modeling & texturing :applause::applause:

Great work so far. I like this hilarous idea :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 05:21 PM (

hey guys,here's a little update,eyebrows,facial hair,and some un-noticeable texturing touch ups,like the redness around the eye,and some sweat(i donno know if its the correct word!)on the forhead which is not noticable in this angle,the left view would show this better,thanx again for all the support,any c&c?


10 October 2005, 05:31 PM
Nomad,Thanx man,ur entry was really cool too!:) :beer:

i forgot to add,

PLEASE vote this:
1- the previuos update was better(with no facial hair,and eyebrows)
2-Current update,looks good and facial hairs and eyebrows are set!

OFCOURSE tell the reason too!:)

10 October 2005, 07:31 PM
ha ah ah a ... the update is funy ..... it change the whole characterisitic of him....let me tell you that the face is modeled so powrefull and i think it dosen't need any haire or eybro .....i prefer the first one :scream:

10 October 2005, 07:57 PM
i can Tell you, your Character has Aged Alot, at least showing it...
it's really hard to choose. i guess,Based upon the Concept, your Cheater is gonna be a little Young, i dont know alot about Horse riders and stuff but i guess they should be young. although you might have a message behind your scene by showing a Middle aged and experienced Cheater....
i cant vote...both are great...Keep it up Ali:thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 09:42 PM
Hey , You have done a very good texturing !! Bravo ;)
In these cases , I choose the first(no hair) . but with a better hair system , I like him to have eyebrows . (I don't like zbrush hair ). but just eyebrows !!

Wish you luck .

King Regards.

10 October 2005, 09:58 PM
I think he should have more scraggly facial hair and maybe a balding buzz cut. Great work so far!

By the way, how do you upload an image such that you can have it be clicked on and a larger resolution version can pop up like that?

10 October 2005, 11:24 PM
I must say I prefer the first also. Eyebrows look too fuzzy, but the rest of the facial hair is not bad. From what is visible in this render, the sweat looks great. All in all better without the hair though, in my opinion.

oh and btw, could you post the texture map of the cheater?

10 October 2005, 09:23 AM,Thanx man,i have got a new desicion!
3rd user,Absolutely! good suggestions,ur right,i have a new plan!
-REZA-,Thanx! yeah i knew about that! u dont like ZB HAIR! damn,i'll try my best,its not the ZB HAIR's most power! im not that good! ZB ROCKS!:thumbsup: :bounce: :buttrock:
gardogg,thanx,ur right,! nothing special! u have the resolution,forexaple 1100X900 tHEN IT MUST JUST BE LOWER THAN 150kb,Thats it,its uploaded and by clicking u see the actual size.:)
N_krypsh_N,thanx,yeah,sure,but ZBrushes default texture exports,are not readable easily! only ZB users may find something! ill do that for sure:rolleyes:

Thanx guys,ill be back soon,with new facial and stuff....

10 October 2005, 10:04 AM
Hi.nice work
1.the fur is a problem as you know.
2.face anatomy is not correct (but its to late to say that :) ).
3.texture is good just a little bit more sss is better.
good luck man :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 10:49 AM

thanx for droppping by,about hair,its solved by now,sss will be simulated in the finaal shot,cuz ZB doesnt have an apropriate SSS,and about face anatomy! would u explain what is face anatomy,and in a cartoony model like this with this exaggeration,what can a problem be? im really curiuos to know,whats wrong with the head!
here's some new updates,,,

10 October 2005, 10:53 AM (

as u guys,wanted to see the texturemap,here u are,i said that there;s nothing cool or noticable! its the kinda UV unwrapping which ZB does,and by now its not nessecary for me to import the model in another 3d app,like Max,and render it to texture.

10 October 2005, 10:56 AM (

here's a screenshot,i though it's good to be shared!

10 October 2005, 10:59 AM (

here's a closeup with more clear details...

10 October 2005, 11:02 AM (

hey guys,here's an update,after an hout tweaking the possiblities and choosing the best,iv chosen this,and to me its ok,any c&C?

10 October 2005, 11:15 AM
I like his sneaky, green eyes... :thumbsup: and the eyebrows are ok, but Im not so found of the "beard".. but thats me...

10 October 2005, 02:45 PM
that's alot better...specially the texture, you have made it better...:thumbsup: Keep Goooooing

10 October 2005, 04:55 PM (

hey guys,here's an update,after an hout tweaking the possiblities and choosing the best,iv chosen this,and to me its ok,any c&C?

You guessed my choice is the nr3

Great work :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 04:23 PM
I'd definately go for no.2
Looks a bit like Gary Sinise. Keep going :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 04:33 PM
great update madlight, nr 3 is my favorite, see you and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 11:22 PM
I definately say 3. Looks more evil than the rest, and fits a cheater.

10 October 2005, 05:31 AM
yea looks nearly perfect now. the teeth are much better. go for #3 :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 06:20 AM
How did you make those face hair whiskers? Some sort of alpha fur map? Or did you model actual strands of hair and stick them in?

10 October 2005, 07:27 AM
3 definately.

10 October 2005, 05:26 PM

owww....long time no seee....:bounce: :bounce:

realy nice progress..i lke the way you're Doing your challenge....

and about the vote on NUMA 1.....(dont know why...just like him more)

Do Good and keep working...i mean Rocking:thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 08:15 PM
Great character... no 3 seems the best.. evil grins, so well implemented always get me.. gives him a lot of character...

10 October 2005, 09:15 PM
first of all, Sorry i couldn't reply sooner,loads of issues around....anyway i hope that it helps in some way.
|Let alone the lighting is different|
if you meant foolishness,not evilness,then you better not go for the 3rd one. the eyebrow is showing some potentials in evil being.
The one in the middle, it's in the middle indeed. some Young Pure Evil. i wont go for it either.
But...The first one,which is i guess just different in case of Eyebrow and a little of Beard is more kinda Decent and acceptable for both evilness and foolishness.after all,you did an evil looking model, it might be hard to expect a fool looking guy.
btw,i would really appriciate if you explain in detail the fiberBrush that helped you made the beard:) Thanks Ali!
And....Good Luck Mate:thumbsup: hope to see you on the Winners Page Soon!

10 October 2005, 11:18 PM
Hard to choice, but my favorite is the first one, then the number 3 and the number two last ;)

I just prefer the way you've set the fur in the first one..I think it's the version wich fit the best with the character :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 05:05 PM
number one

10 October 2005, 06:00 PM
