This is my first participation in a Challange of CGtalk.

Good luck everyone and sorry my english. hehe :buttrock:

09-08-2005, 02:08 AM (

please, moderators. If my Sketch don't respect the mission of challenge, I will post another sketch, ok?
I think artistic nudes spectacular.

09-08-2005, 02:27 AM
hey man.. cool sketch... waiting to see this modeling session.. :eek:

best luck.. c ya !

09-08-2005, 05:15 AM
Interesting concept. Intertwining humans can be quite a sight. :) Keep posting.

09-08-2005, 05:20 AM
I think this could be spectacular... I find doing Nudes (drawing, painting, photographing) is all about the right lighting... Shadow and hilight all that...

09-08-2005, 06:40 AM
artistic nudes, way to go! I am curious to see how this concept sketch is gonna evolve into 3D!

09-08-2005, 01:46 PM
thank you, guys. I no have much time for this, but I'll try to make the best.

See you later :thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 02:28 PM
Hey guy!

Great idea! Very different from everything else I've seen around here.

Good luck!

C ya

09-08-2005, 02:48 PM
Nice concept, I'm just curious about the background.

Good Luck!

09-08-2005, 04:17 PM
Hey man, good to see you here
nice skech, i will be waching :thumbsup:
c ya

09-08-2005, 04:26 PM
Hi Rodolfo,

That is very hot... :eek: good luck :thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 10:18 PM
thank's for all replies. in next night i will start my model. :wavey:

09-08-2005, 10:28 PM
eh.. i think, "artistic nude" is not the term for all mature content images. lighting will be hard task here, if you don't want it look cheap. good luck:]

09-09-2005, 12:12 AM
i think make wet them. i didn't think about background. To Make sketch in 3d will be very hard for me, but nothing is impossible. :thumbsup:


09-09-2005, 01:12 AM
Looks interesting. I'll be keeping an eye on this one. Good Luck!

09-09-2005, 01:48 AM
If you read the challenge theme carefully, I'm not seeing how this is TRULY "spectacular". A cool sketch, but I don't see this idea as winning the challenge. Don't mean to be rude. You've got skills and I just want to see you have a chance ;)

09-09-2005, 03:23 AM
Hi, Gargdogg. Exactly. I will try make this sketch a spetacular image.

If I don't obtain, i'll post another sketch. Thank's for reply. :thumbsup:

09-09-2005, 03:36 AM
Upon reviewing...

Your challenge is to conceive and create an image that could potentially become part of future history as one of those iconic spectacular images that grasps viewers by the throat; that quickens the pulse; that excites and scares at the same time.
What makes something Spectacular? That's a good question. It's also the key to fame and fortune if you can learn how to turn out truly spectacular images on demand. The reason is that spectacular images are some of the most widely sought after and most commercially valuable. It's part of the human nature to be entertained by the spectacular.

I've now reconsidered what I suggested to you. I guess according to these guidlines your idea COULD be successful. The image does quicken the pulse, could excite (arouse) and could scare ("oh no, it would suck if every hot girl liked only other girls" - SCARY) In addition, you could pull off something of very impressive quality. So go for it if that is something that you want to do! My personal feelings toward the subject matter are irrelevant. But I must admit it does follow the guidelines imo and could work. Good luck!

09-09-2005, 04:34 AM
ok. thank you very much! :D .

I will think about something more spetacular and I'll post in next moment.

See you later!

09-09-2005, 05:07 AM
Nice to see u here !,but this time im just wathing,good luck for you!!

09-09-2005, 12:10 PM
Oh bring me some water ! My roots are on fire !

Cool Ziriguidum ! Lets gogogo !

09-09-2005, 12:15 PM
It`s ok , but I think this is not the cocept for Spectacular .this is a good sketch that can be usefull for another term .anyway goodluck ...

09-09-2005, 01:26 PM
Thank you guys.

Ramtin_moom: your commentary already was answered. :thumbsup:
read the replies from gardogg and my reply.


09-09-2005, 01:43 PM
Hey guy!

Good luck!
I'm wainting for more details, ok?

Alessandro Lima

09-10-2005, 07:46 PM
Good to see you! :thumbsup:

Good Luck!

09-11-2005, 02:34 AM

i think that the simple flirt is irrelevant but if you want this idea put some soul in this picture. something that give feeling to the picture.

sorry but i must speak in portuguese too have assurance that rodolfo is understanding me ( my english is poor):

aqulio que quero dizer é que podes continuar com este conceito, parece-me interessante se com isto conseguires formar uma imagem intensa, imagina um anuário fotográfico, com as melhores fotos do ano, se esta tiver a carga emocional suficiente para lá estar é pq é espectacular.
É a minha opinião, continuação de um bom trabalho ;)

09-12-2005, 03:17 AM
thank's Alima, Guto and Carlos.

I'm making a new concept. I will post here when finish it.

PS Carlos: Obrigado Carlos. É. A idéia é deixar a cena intensa para tornar uma imagem espetacular. não tinha pensado em background. Mas queria algo surpreendedor. Talvez conseguiria, talvez não surpreender o juri. Mas vou postar um novo Sketch para ver o que o pessoal acha. Aí opto por um dos 2. Obrigado.

09-12-2005, 03:46 AM
Ok, Rodolfo, go ahead. You've a hard work. Good luck :thumbsup:

09-12-2005, 03:58 AM (

This is my second option. I need opinions. see you later!

09-12-2005, 08:04 AM

I'd think the image would be food for thought but would it be spectacular? Can you tell a bit more about the idea behind it?


09-13-2005, 01:49 AM
Hi, ObiGert. I changed my idea. :rolleyes: This is a final concept "Faith".

09-13-2005, 02:06 AM (

thank's for all replies.

This is my last and definitive sketch inspired in Bible: Moses opening red sea)
Let's go!

09-13-2005, 02:09 AM
Hi Rodolfo. You did a new concept? I liked of the skecht, you cant tell something about.

09-13-2005, 03:20 AM
Hi Alan. My scene will show a history of Bible where Moses opens the red sea to save the people of Israel. Perhaps the angle of camera will be modified. :thumbsup: Moses is a Super Hero of God! hehehe

The Power of Moses's Faith is Wonderful.

09-13-2005, 03:24 AM (

First up - Foot of Moses

09-13-2005, 03:50 AM

Wip - Leg

09-13-2005, 08:59 AM
ay, much better concept! but its gonna be hard doing the water I presume....


09-13-2005, 05:17 PM
I will make the water with "Real Flow". The time of calculation if lowest, but not difficult. :thumbsup:

09-13-2005, 07:21 PM (

well, the model will be covered with a mantle. Then Buth doesn't need to be perfect.

09-13-2005, 07:31 PM
Hi ziriguidum, a fine start to modelling dude! Moses has a slightly narrow ass though... I like the exaggeration on the legs though... Good luck!

09-13-2005, 07:40 PM
Thank's Daddy. Moses was a slave. years later, He became a God in Egypt.

because yours long walked and efforts, I think that he was a strong man.

09-13-2005, 08:34 PM
Excelent work and progress.

I can't wait for see the sea modeling.

09-13-2005, 09:38 PM
cool , nice progress .:thumbsup:

09-14-2005, 12:26 PM
Very nice man! i liked this proportion.
Keep going, i will check on later.
c ya

09-14-2005, 03:12 PM (

i will refine the mesh. This is a preview of the body of Moses

09-14-2005, 03:12 PM
Thank you guys for all replies!! :thumbsup:

09-14-2005, 07:54 PM
:eek: Very Nice!

I'm watching U, waiting for updates...

Cara, so achei ele meio sarado demais para a idade dele.
E o umbigo eu tbm achei estranho, mas nao vai aparecer mesmo.


09-14-2005, 08:39 PM (

More ups of Moses's Body.

09-14-2005, 09:31 PM

09-15-2005, 01:32 AM
yeah. I will refine the mesh after completed it. I will diminish the exaggerate! :thumbsup:

Hi, Rodolfo

It´s getting great, dude! It can be an excellent work. The modeling is going well too. Dont't forget to post the wires. Isn´t it a part of the rules?
I will keep an eye on this thread.

09-15-2005, 01:11 PM
Thank's, brother! When I finishes the modeling, I'll post the wires!

Thank's for reply.

09-15-2005, 02:54 PM

WOW! Thank you Ramtin and Guto. I will post more ups next week.

09-16-2005, 09:28 PM (

Hi, this is a little up of hand...

09-18-2005, 09:09 PM
Just something you might want to consider:

Moses wasn't exactly a vigorous guy, he was pretty old once the israelites had reached the red sea. Perhaps a muscular model is a little out of place? Unless of course there is a reason for modelling him in this manner, perhaps to enhance the spectacular feel of the image.

09-19-2005, 01:17 AM
Yes. I want to give a Damaged appearance to his, however, a strong old man. I will diminish a little the muscles after finishing it.

09-19-2005, 01:22 AM
hey man.. this is really good.. but i was thinking .. the moises isnt thin ? uehuhe :rolleyes:

keep going man.. c ya !

09-19-2005, 01:55 AM
vou escrever em portuga memo! cara t muito be mmodelado esse corpo, e a idéia do projeto está bem legal tb!! boa sorte ai no challenge!
nos vemos por aí,
um abraço

Sweet! Moses has a HOT ASS! :love:

09-21-2005, 02:33 PM
Sweet! Moses has a HOT ASS! :love:


thank's Gra7, Jonas and Gus.

09-22-2005, 12:12 PM
You prophet is very powerfull!
I think that people is more thin...

Legal sua ideia! Mas eu acho que pra um profeta essa modelagem está musculosa demais! :)

boa sorte!

09-23-2005, 12:38 PM
more ups in next week!!!


e aí Raul, blz? obrigado por ter aparecido!!! cara.. a idéia é deixar ele um pouco sarado.. mas não tanto. hehehe..depois q eu terminar a modelagem eu diminuirei as definições.. abraços

09-24-2005, 03:05 AM
hi ziriguidum, nice modeling, keep going

09-24-2005, 11:32 PM

I am very busy. I don't know when I will make updates. sorry.

10-04-2005, 10:21 PM
Fala cara, acho q tu deve dar uma olhadas em algumas referencias de egipicios, tipo nariz, formato do rosto, dae dae uma envelhecida.

Quem sabe usar o zbrush para fazer as rugas?


10-05-2005, 02:12 AM
sim. lógico.. isso é quase q um sketch do boneco.. hahaha.. não dá pra avaliar ainda.. se der, usarei ZB sim... sou meio manco ainda. heheheh..

aeeww cara.. =)

mtoo bom viu.. continua assim q tu vai longe cara...

posta mais ups depois!

More ups

10-06-2005, 08:38 PM
Hi Rodolfo, I liked this last update. The traces remember the egyptian people, but i igree about the muscle structure, it seems me stronger to be a prophet. Well, it's my opinion. Keep going, i waiting to see more.

10-07-2005, 07:30 PM (

thank's for all replies!

more ups. I will try make the bump and displacement in zbrush, but i don't know the tools of the software. :cry:

10-08-2005, 03:10 PM
Cara achei a ideia interessante, mas acho que vc tem que tomar cuidado pra nao fazer uma imagem semelhante as milhares que existem sobre esse tema.

Acho que vc poderia ate mesmo deixar moises ainda mais forte, sei lá... hehehehe criar algo que deixa a imagem única...

Valew cara...


10-10-2005, 12:25 PM
mmm.. legal cara! vou ficar atento a dica! vlw!

I know that he isn't very strong. But I want to give another design to Moses.

10-11-2005, 09:56 PM
Ok, keep going.

10-12-2005, 02:14 PM (

I know that the texture contain imperfections. I don't set the parameters of SSS. This is a simple test.

sorry my english. hehehe

10-13-2005, 03:59 AM
Hi Rodolfo, good start with the textures. Perhaps you could decrease a bit the bump map, i thinking a bit hard. Keep it up. :thumbsup:

10-13-2005, 03:09 PM
Thank's Alan. I will reduce it and will to prepare the Displacement map.

the texture not have displacement and I need correct the imperfections. (

10-14-2005, 05:41 PM
I thinking cool, but i think tha you could make some adjusts on the displacment map,keep it up dude. I'm looking

Achei legal, as rugas vão ficar boas. Na minha opinião, acho q vc poderia ajustar um pouco mais o displacment, pois tá parecendo um pouco amarrotado. Mas continua aí q vai ficar legal. :thumbsup:

10-19-2005, 02:03 PM
Hi Ziriguidum,
I agree with the denverbz, the dispacement map needs some adjustments.

10-24-2005, 08:29 PM (

This is a test of modelling Clothes and hair.. it's haven't texture and shader

i need correct any bugs

10-25-2005, 01:56 PM
Hey Rodolfo ,

I really like the new concept :thumbsup: , this concept crossed my mind . I look forward to what you do with it . The model is looking good so far , I think the the clothes could have more folds in the geometry but the textures and displacement may do the trick.
Good luck with this.

11-04-2005, 03:49 PM (

I really very busy. I will try finishes my Image.

This is a Hair Update

This is a first modeling of the waves of red sea. This is a stylization.

In the origin of Ripple, it will be the Moises's Stick. The particles systems will have motion blur

11-07-2005, 05:31 PM (

This is a glare effect in particle systems. Not motion blur

This is my paint 2d of the Background in Photoshop

11-07-2005, 07:57 PM (

This is my background after Combustion.

I applyed ZAP in colour image and Shine in gray scale mask.

11-08-2005, 11:01 AM (

This is my first test with liquid shader.

The purple particles It's not good, I will change to green or yellow.

The glare was affected my background and stay very iluminated.. It's wrong!

12-04-2005, 05:11 PM
sorry, but I don't have time to render my final image... good luck for other challengers.
