This is my first participation in a Challange of CGtalk.

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

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

best luck.. c ya !

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

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

09 September 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 September 2005, 02:28 PM
Hey guy!

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

Good luck!

C ya

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

Good Luck!

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

09 September 2005, 04:26 PM
Hi Rodolfo,

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

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

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

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

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

Cool Ziriguidum ! Lets gogogo !

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

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


09 September 2005, 01:43 PM
Hey guy!

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

Alessandro Lima

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

Good Luck!

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

09 September 2005, 03:58 AM (

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

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

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

09 September 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 September 2005, 03:24 AM (

First up - Foot of Moses

09 September 2005, 03:50 AM
cool concept!this going to be an epical one! :) great work keep it up man!

09 September 2005, 04:47 AM (

Wip - Leg

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


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

09 September 2005, 07:21 PM (

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

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

I can't wait for see the sea modeling.

09 September 2005, 09:38 PM
cool , nice progress .:thumbsup:

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

09 September 2005, 03:12 PM (

09 September 2005, 03:12 PM

09 September 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.

09 September 2005, 08:39 PM (

More ups of Moses's Body.

09 September 2005, 09:31 PM
thats realy a great human model!:) though i find the abbs part a little bit odd compared to the well defined muscles of the rest!

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


09 September 2005, 02:10 AM

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

Thank's for reply.

09 September 2005, 02:54 PM
Nice to see you here Rodolfo. Good luck.

09 September 2005, 08:13 PM

Very nice to see you here! :)
Good luck! :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 04:18 PM
WOW! Thank you Ramtin and Guto. I will post more ups next week.

09 September 2005, 09:28 PM (

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

09 September 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 September 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 September 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 September 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

09 September 2005, 07:32 AM
Sweet! Moses has a HOT ASS! :love:

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


thank's Gra7, Jonas and Gus.

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

09 September 2005, 11:32 PM
Wow, very original. I hope that it turns out a great piece of art!

Great Ziriguidolfo ! Very nice your modeling... :thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 09:24 PM (

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

10 October 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 October 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..


10 October 2005, 05:31 AM
aeeww cara.. =)

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

posta mais ups depois!

10 October 2005, 03:24 PM (

More ups

10 October 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 October 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 October 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 October 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 October 2005, 09:56 PM
Ok, keep going.

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

10 October 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 October 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 November 2005, 03:49 PM (

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

This is a Hair Update

11 November 2005, 08:01 PM
Ah... thank's mmoir.. I have very work to foward!! :thumbsup:

11 November 2005, 11:31 AM (

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

11 November 2005, 05:30 PM (

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

11 November 2005, 05:31 PM (

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

11 November 2005, 07:55 PM (

This is my paint 2d of the Background in Photoshop

11 November 2005, 07:57 PM (

This is my background after Combustion.

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

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

Thank's all replies
