03 March 2006, 05:49 PM
The main idea:

Well i havent seen others challengers ideas yet so if u see something similar please let me know:blush:

ok the main idea will be lots of little dwarfts or something similar trying to help a huge animal to get back to his an elephant for example...the idea is to make this a bitt funny , playing with the huge size diference between them .

a bit of the story, hmmm...well the elephant got lost from its family and ended entering the domains of this little friends, theyre very happy people and helpful (like me, u know:D), so they will start a journey to return the big fellow to his family agian, of course they will bve equiped with lots of things to ensure they journey will be a happy one...i think in music instruments, food, etc.

03 March 2006, 06:37 PM
Hi Jorge, glad to see you in this one!

i like the story jorge, you can come up with a very nice ideas with those little guys and how they live , maybe you can add a female character to suport your main in the journey . Your first concept is looking great , i really like the hair in this guy , maybe you can use diferent Hair Cuts in some of them that define his personality.

Keep up :buttrock:

Funny character you got there Jorge! I posted earlier but when I sent the "post repy" the server was bussy and it seems it didn't save my post :shrug:, anyway, good job, when I read the story I imagined lots of little fellows like in the Game "picmins of "gamecube" you may have a glance at it, it may help you giving ideas.
About the story...couldn't be better! :bounce::bounce::bounce::thumbsup::buttrock:

03 March 2006, 10:35 AM
That's beautiful! I'm amazed that you already completed so much work. hey man, if you are juggling your job and the 3D challenge, you have my most sincere admiration. If you don't you have it anyway, the result is beautiful.


03 March 2006, 02:59 PM
Cute kid! nice shader! but jaw seems strange to me (not sure if u used some references) but i think chin needs to be softened in connection with jaw. And ill say that neck is way too thick, kids neck is thin compared to head...


03 March 2006, 03:02 PM
and the boy got his fur :) looks really good too... :bounce:

03 March 2006, 07:45 PM
monica-taddei: hello thanx a lot for your words:love:, u give an extra boost to me :),

Dodgeas3d: oh now i see that..hahaha ..u right thanx for the advice...much apreciated

makaron: im glad u like the fur, im still experimenting with settings to see if i can get a better one:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 09:03 PM
i really like the model man :) good work here . The shader is great too and the hair is coming along nice . Lets wait for more updates with your test about the hair.

keep up

03 March 2006, 10:34 PM
Your story sounds really fun! The whole music thing is really cool!
Great character.

03 March 2006, 04:38 PM
going pretty good keep it up

03 March 2006, 04:52 PM
Nice Textures and Hair. You're doin a great job but I agree with Dodgeas3d about the chin. It is too strong for a child. Keep up the great work! :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 02:17 AM
I'd suggest to make the jaw less wide and make soft lines to the cheek
Kids have very small chin and it's almost round... :)
the rest is great :)

P.S. I love the hair (fur)... :)

03 March 2006, 11:56 AM
Hey dude, great to see you in this challenge:) Your progress so far is looking real cool.
No crits on your modeling skills Man you are doing a great job:thumbsup:
All the best for this challenge and keep rocking:scream: :thumbsup: :bounce:

That little fella looks great!

03 March 2006, 06:17 PM (

hello...the same one but with the standard material..normal maps are not visible so some wrinkles details and others are missing...but u can see better the modeling i guess

03 March 2006, 06:21 PM
Holy crap !! That's oustanding job Jorge !! :eek:

Wonderful work on modeling , texture , and everything !! just wow !
Besides this little fellow is a bit too cute :thumbsup: ...

03 March 2006, 06:22 PM
:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:That little fellow is looking cool! maybe some facepaint would be great for the others, you know, to make their personality more accentuated :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 07:12 PM
great modeling so far. that fella seems to be a little frightened - I can't wait to see what will that be. only that spec bothers me, but I can realize it isn't final shader.

good luck!

03 March 2006, 07:50 PM
luigithekid: thanx man, yeah droms cant be missed..ill make them for sure..and some wind instruments sounds good to me:thumbsup:

Zapan: thanx my friend, :bowdown:, next characters will be faster to make..i hope so..

03 March 2006, 07:48 AM

Hi ! Very nice work...

but one question! Do you model your basemodels in Silo, or what program ?

03 March 2006, 01:24 AM
niCer: thanx i made base modeling on max, i took a look to silo and seems like a good software too:bounce:

03 March 2006, 06:14 AM
yeah u are right it looks like the pics but there is something u missed look in this pic maybe u
can see what I mean "I couldn`t use my pc till now lol so I couldn`t log on the messenger I hate school nos vemos luego lol was it luego"

03 March 2006, 06:18 AM
oh cool picture my friend ..thanx a lot...i think i can make some arragments in max to get some folds like that...thank u again:beer:

03 March 2006, 08:11 AM
Ah yes , great to see the complete beast !!

Lovely details ... is he supposed to be as tall as Oliphants ? :D

fantastic work on the elephant. Congratulations.

03 March 2006, 04:00 PM
yeah great work man! Very nice Zbrushing :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 02:56 PM
Hey very good model! I think the eyes are too small, though :(

03 March 2006, 12:23 PM
Holy crap! That's some mad zbrushing u got going on Jorge! I'm just waiting to see u go through the model again with yet another zbrush pass.

I guess all I can say now is that there are some areas where the brush strokes are still visible, like around the elephant's outer ear area, but I'm sure you're going to fix that. Still, I like it a lot!

Cheers friend

03 March 2006, 05:23 PM
:bounce:It looks grrrrreat:applause::applause::applause::buttrock::thumbsup: very good job Jorge, a couple of wrinkles more and pixologic will give u a call asking you to be a ZB beta tester :thumbsup: it is looking very nice, keep it up !

03 March 2006, 06:31 PM
Wow, you did so much since I was here last time :)

About the elephant.
I'd change the wrinkles on the nose a bit, so they are a bit finer at the top
And I'd leave the rest the way it is :)
It will look great when the color is there.

03 March 2006, 01:16 AM

thanx friend..well ,, hes not going to be huge...but quite big to be carrying 2 boys




thank u so much man :)


thanx for the words man!


hello..yeah i agree...ill make them a bit bigger


:beer:, hi man..yeah need to fix some areas though..but ill do it..thanx


thanx bro! for the kind would be great to test new


Oh good advice on the wrinkles..for sure added to my correction list...there are too many fixes to do ...i apreciate your opinion..thanx

03 March 2006, 01:21 AM (

well heres an ugly sketch, but shows the main idea and also the composition guides...a very simple percentage based composition where my main character (elephant) will be inside the 60% bigeer area.. all objects depend on this area for their positon since is the main one...of course im not good on some advice will be much apreciated

03 March 2006, 04:38 AM
Whaouw... that will be an incredible picture at final Jorge... I already imagine the quality... go mate... :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 06:00 AM

Oh my ! look at this pretty cutie :eek:
One minor suggestion , maybe rounder the global cheek could improve the cuteness even more !

stunning work as usual Jorge !

cheers ,


03 March 2006, 08:28 PM
nice updates- I like your texturing. the face has a real warmth to it, and those apples look, well, yummy!

Hello..well some progress on the princess..comments are welcome

04 April 2006, 03:24 AM
Very interesting head! The forms of the face are a bit soft, but its a wip I see. How are you texturing it while modeling? Or is it procedural textures?

04 April 2006, 03:58 AM
hello :D
I wonder how old is she supposed to be? That nose makes her look a little grown up :p

04 April 2006, 05:56 AM
hahaha coool man that`s very cool keep going bro

She looks very cute! nice modeling and great texture work Jorge! This will be a stunning piece!:thumbsup: :)

04 April 2006, 09:00 AM
Hi! Nice character...but I think, that the texture of the fabric on her clothes is large-scaled. I like her face and the flower in her hair.

Good luck!

04 April 2006, 12:53 PM
She's really pretty... just a remark about clothes... I don't appreciate so much this "big flower"... and the large scale of fabrics...
Maybe something more "typic" for the pattern ?

04 April 2006, 08:38 PM
jdsb: thanx for the encouragment!!:bounce::bounce::)

04 April 2006, 08:40 PM (

well heres an other try...still need to fix stretching in some areas..but i wanted to know what do u think friends..

04 April 2006, 08:53 PM
Hey there !! And we're talking about workspeed here !! :eek:

Ok one comment from me !! totally rock :applause: !!
The new fabric fits her way better me think , insane job on the hair ... wow ! and she's overall really cute !!

Wonderful work my friend , as usual , but this character totally blew my mind !

cheers ,


04 April 2006, 11:34 PM
that redish color on the dress is better for a princess... :thumbsup:

04 April 2006, 11:49 PM
absolutely stunning princess ! i have no crits, just a question. How did u do the hair ? it looks great ! Subscribed.

Edit : actually i have one crit. The dress.. i liked the white, it looked better and she would attract more attention in the composition, but the flower looked weird. The red one doesnt make her stand out enough, she disappears a bit in it. Maybe a texture like this (, but lighter ? Or maybe something like this ( . Just a suggestion ofcourse. Great work, keep it up !

04 April 2006, 06:27 AM
It's better of course... me like :thumbsup:

04 April 2006, 07:02 AM
really like the way you've drapped a flower pattern around her neck at the top of her poncho/dress (in each of the two versions)...hope you keep at least that much in the future, though, both versions look great...might be improved slightly if multipixel filtering were turned down or -- maybe the fuzziness/lack of crisp details in your image is jpeg optimization? Your apple basket render is very -- perfectly -- clear, crisp...did that use a different render setting or optimization method? Just a thought....

04 April 2006, 07:05 AM
Another strong character model from you ... you really manage to make unique personalities for each challenge! :thumbsup:
I love her clothes and the flower is a wonderful detail!

04 April 2006, 12:26 PM
i love it alot, as already noted..if anything you want to tweak, you could add some gravity to the folds in the poncho..but that's just nitpicking-she's beautiful!

04 April 2006, 12:38 PM
I really like both designs, but I think that the white one works a bit better because their is more contrast with her skin tone. Maybe you can find one that is a balance of the two.

04 April 2006, 02:50 PM
cool "chica" keep going

04 April 2006, 12:45 AM
Hey mate, I agree with woutb and the others. The white seems to stand out more, but I'm really digging the new design you got for the red. Like the others said, a mix will be nice. The characters are coming along absolutely fantastic dude....


04 April 2006, 03:52 AM
Hey Jorge! that girl is looking great! I think is lovely, she looks like a princess! very very nice job, the red is just the right color for her :thumbsup:

04 April 2006, 06:02 AM
thats really nice, well done.
textures are also lovely. keep on going well.:)

04 April 2006, 05:59 PM
great completion, the character look so nice Jorge though the clothes is a bit simple but nice textured doesn't matter, show us more.

04 April 2006, 07:14 PM
