Hey great updates the model is looking great. No crits really. Woooo.... She's beautiful! And so is the armor... maybe not so comfortable, but very stylish :)You know that gets me thinking it might be good to put a comfy velvet backing under the armour, it could shown here and there at the edges and would nicely set off the metal.

03 March 2006, 05:59 PM
Hi Stephane! glad to see your work again on this new challenge!
Totaly great modeling on that girl, and superb concept! So all the best till the end of the deadline. Will follow your steps of course! :bounce: :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 09:34 PM

03 March 2006, 09:36 PM

Some ZB stuff would have been cool for the jewelery...

03 March 2006, 10:16 PM

Still some details are missing on the pants ... a little bit too rounded I think ... and also boots ...

Oh btw , was kind of lazy to merge the 2 half bodies this time ...

Wow!! Very cool & clear modeling :applause: I really like it! Waiting for updates! :)

03 March 2006, 12:35 AM
Strong start. I think you are doing well with the anatomy as well as the structure of the face. Keep going! :buttrock:

03 March 2006, 12:38 AM
hey zapan,
great concept and a great modeling start. to my eyes maybe her bustier is a little low, by an inch or two, it's reaally the only crit i can find so far. question: how do you create the decorations??


03 March 2006, 01:22 AM
She is filling out very nicely....xellent work

03 March 2006, 01:36 AM
ouch! your model steal my heart :beer: Nice job, man. see you later!

03 March 2006, 03:34 AM
hey! can't comment anything!! man! your modeling skill is awesome!

03 March 2006, 03:50 AM
:bowdown: :bowdown:

very impressive modeling skills you've got here,the cloth work around the legs looks awesome(even as a wip)
hope to see some wires if you get a chance

keep going :)


03 March 2006, 04:26 AM
nice modeling so far,especially the ass of this girl really sexy and amazing :love:
keep up , show more progress and developments of your work , i am going to learning somethings:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 04:45 AM
:drool:wow!.. ill buy one of these suits to my girlfriend...of course i need to find a girlfriend first but i love the design:applause:, and of course modeling is really awesome

03 March 2006, 05:51 AM
Great and "balaise" work Cadet... beautiful anatomy and especially good design for clothes... the only crit to do, it's "again" about the legs decoration... always a not so much stylish shape... and that seem not in the same scale than those on her breast... after few minutes of observation of her, I can only see these shapes...

03 March 2006, 07:54 AM
Ohhh... you're modeling skills kills me - so beautiful. Great bodyshape and the folding of the clothes are just terrific :thumbsup:

Going hunting with a naked butt doesn't seem very practical - but it's cool in many senses :)

So, when are you going to enter snailmode? :D

03 March 2006, 08:25 AM
Hé bah si tu continue comme ça tu vas nous faire une image qui déchire toi :)

03 March 2006, 08:25 AM
ahhh... so this is your version of leopardbikini for elfs... a de luxe design ala Snail :p

looks good otherwise the ornimate on the legs are a bit to "clumsy" and what Gunilla said about the butt is soo true :p

03 March 2006, 08:32 AM (

Forgot to post the wireframe the last time (to tell the truth , was too lazy :))

So here they are ...

cheers ,

@ Lemog : Ahahah , thx a lot Laurent , and I knew it !! To tell the truth , I was not up to make these leg armors ... only some bracelets for ankles but when I was doing it , I thought it would be nicer to get a bigger armor on this area , and then I quickly but the ornement shape to see what it would look like... But yeah it doesn't please me neither now , I'm gonna change it right away ! :)

@ Gunilla : Ahah , thx a lot Gunie , ahahah , I guess we should be a guy to think people are going hunting half naked ! But hey , Conan the Barbarian didn't have much cloth on him ! :scream:
Oh and I'm going to snail soon , pretty one , very soon ... since I won't be here this weekend :) .

@ Elendil le Grand : Thx a lot Nico !

only the face from what i could see

more ladylikeness, not sure what to
change tho, sorry :)


03 March 2006, 10:00 PM
Hiyaaaa le steph'!

Jsut a quick word to tell you I like your modeling, it's really really really nice - maybe arms are a bit too short? :D

By the way you are the fastest snail I know !:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:

03 March 2006, 10:39 PM

This is realy great modelling dude.I'm also doing a female figure but I suck at organic stuff,so I'm going to look at your work for some guidens.If you know of a good tutorial please let me know.

03 March 2006, 09:29 AM
Morning all !

@ makaron : See you can't remember too !! Bah even if we don't know what it means , it's still a funny word ... I like those :scream:

@ coochaki : Thx man , more comes soon ... I hope !

@ Squibbit : Hey Squib ! thx man ! yep something bothering me too but I can't figure it too .... Well I'm gonna tweak that now on pose so I hope I'm gonna fix it ... thx man for droppin' by !

@ agou : Hiyya La Sophinette !! Thx a lot , yeah they do are a bit short ... I fixed that !

@ Vedic kings : Thx a lot mate !!

@ cipher : Thx a lot Seb !!

@ Climax : thx a lot Omar !!

@ SONIC-X : Thx a lot Corrie !! Well I don't really know tutorials ...
But without any arrogance or whatsoever I did an anatomy thread ( for my topology research on the anotamy forum maybe you can find something usefull there (despite all spams :scream: )
I used the exact same way to model that elf model ...
Otherwise Stahlberg opened a thread on the female topology here ( ...
Hope it helps !

Ok finally I'll con'inue this one for a while by rigging and posing and move to another one after that ... yep that's the plan !
Huge thx to all of you for your great support and kind words ! Have great day !

cheers ,


03 March 2006, 11:09 AM
Fantastic modeling Steph!:eek: Twisted work! she looks so good.

Keep up that standard:beer: ( It's taking everybody on higher grounds!

03 March 2006, 11:16 AM
All your sketches and modelling is looking amazing! The body and proportions look great and the armour detailing is too good.:applause:

Something bothers me about her face, however, and somebody previously mentioned that she could look a bit more feminine as well. I think maybe perhaps part from the nose to her jaw seems a bit long, and her chin a little wide. It could be just the angle, since I didn't notice it as much on the earlier shots...

Keep up the great work!:)

03 March 2006, 02:32 PM
Thanks for the links dude.I have read through your hole anatomy thread and now I feel inspired to attempt modelling a figure for the challenge soon,I just have to get time to do a concept sketch first.

Thanks again.

03 March 2006, 04:32 PM
really good modeling already beautiful!!:bowdown:

03 March 2006, 05:07 PM
Great job with your modeling. This sounds bad but her breast look a lot better now. This thread is almost as popular as 2d works. oh .. and thxs for the anatomy thread.

See ya Later!

03 March 2006, 05:49 PM
Woaw the last update is amazing ... the body and the clothing are both perfect
but why do modelize it together :D
For the head, it seems to me that you are in the good way : elf have a more
elongated face than humans ...

yes, a second elf now :)

03 March 2006, 05:53 PM
C'est du bon modelling ça ! ;)

03 March 2006, 06:15 PM
Great model! She's really a beauty!

03 March 2006, 10:46 PM
Yoyoyoyoyyoyoyoyoyyo my friend :buttrock:

Really beautiful elf! So sexxxxxyyyyyy :love:
But some points IMO...

As Gpepper said the arms are a little too short, i find the nostril a little to high, rib cage is a little too much ahead and the breast area is too flat... on the profil vue especially..

Thats all :scream:
Keep it up the great work Steph :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 12:07 AM (

Gave her the pose ...
Some areas are still a bit "bumpy" due to the skinning ... Have to fix that ...
Now I have to focus on the face and tweak it to gave her a sad expression ... and then move to another character which I hope will be faster to create since I'm gonna use that same body mesh ...

Let me know what you guys think of .

cheers ,


03 March 2006, 12:15 AM
Nyark! for that pose you earn a peanut... :p

think she gonna be great when you fixed her face expression... :bounce:

and me faster than any snail... haha

03 March 2006, 12:15 AM

03 March 2006, 10:47 AM
@ Gunilla : thx a lot my little Gunie (wait ... tall Gunie :scream: ) ... Well I planned to give an overall color for each one ... red for the anger one , green for the surprised ... and blue/dark blue for this one ...sadness ... But the 3 of them will have pale skin ... What do you think , sounds correct ? :)

Sounds perfectly fine :thumbsup: I would just go for subtle coloring though not making it to strong.
Going to be fun to see!
Oh, and you can just call me Big Gun, that's perfectly fine :rolleyes:
... don't even think about it :D

03 March 2006, 10:48 AM
Can't say more that superb!
Continue like this, it is so promising.
More wip more wip!!!

03 March 2006, 11:06 AM
I'd love to offer some sort of helpful crit -but all i can do is give you two thumbs up! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Great work man!

03 March 2006, 12:19 PM
really wonderfull man ;)
Good Job :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 02:08 PM
hey zapan. she's beautiful. wonderfully modeled and i like the pose. it looks just like your concept drawing. but there is something about it that looks a little off. i think her center of gravity may be too much over her rear foot (the bent leg). i think you should shift it forward a little or to my eye she looks like she might be about to fall over. other than that, i'm looking forward to seeing the others. are you going to reuse the anatomy entirely, a bit or not at all??


03 March 2006, 02:19 PM
Wow, Steph, this looks so effortless for you! :thumbsup: Nicely expressive, can't wait to see more!

Chears, :)


03 March 2006, 02:57 PM
great modeling , nice pose too...

03 March 2006, 03:01 PM
@ DimitrisLiatsos : Ahahaha , you mean like this ( ? :scream: !! Rebecca called me thongtastic one day I guess she was right ... I bet people won't ever see it (especially considering we will see her from her front) but I know it's here so I feel a lot better ! :scream: .... so ... NYARK again ? :D

> Aahhahahahaha ....Nyaaark! :D

03 March 2006, 03:02 PM
LMKAOITS!!! I didn't see this post!!! How could I have missed it!!! :scream: :bounce: :scream: :bounce: :scream: :bounce:

03 March 2006, 03:37 PM
Great model! I`m really interested how you will texture her. She`s already rigged and posed! Huge work for so short time...

03 March 2006, 03:58 PM
I love this elf :bounce: :bounce:

She looks so sad... :sad: I think u will have great emotions with this sad elves...
Keep rockin' my friend and shwo us ardeche's powwaaaaaaaa :buttrock:

So hop hop hop lets go to work and stop spamming it's time to work my friend

03 March 2006, 04:51 PM
Hey Stéphane,

I was offline for a few days and now I'm just amazed to see what you've done in this short time:eek: ...
Your fairy is just beautiful and I love how you posed her, very expressive:thumbsup: .
So nothing to crit here...can't wait to see the other elves, or are you going to texture her first?
Anyways, I'm looking out for updates now!:bounce:

03 March 2006, 09:09 PM
cool updates

03 March 2006, 10:02 PM
WOW!!! Great character & cool pose! Very nice update!:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 10:54 PM (

Ok here's the modification on the face ... yep , I didn't change lot of things but I think it should be ok since she should be half hidden by her hand and hair ... I also change the pose of her left foot ...

I need to take a break on that elf for a while so I will start another character tomorrow ... I hope this one will go faster ...

let me know what you guys think of .

cheers ,


03 March 2006, 10:57 PM

that face is just :thumbsup: well done Zapan... your daily peanut is served now... :p

03 March 2006, 11:23 PM
@ madshooter : Ahaha , thx a lot Roshan !

@ Lemog : aww Laurent , so great to see you , Thx a lot for your kind words , makes me feel really proud if you're proud of me !! :)

@ Gunilla : Ah great , glad to hear you're agree with that , sure they will be subtle colors , don't want to make some Power Rangers outfits :scream: ... and ahahahah , I don't think about anything at all ... never ... :scream:

@ funkyboss : Thx a lot Carl ... arf I'm rushing I swear , I can't do faster !!

@ Selina42 : Aww , thx a lot Selina , gladly appreciated those two thumbs up !!

@ Elendil le Grand : Thx a lot Nico !!

@ Cleveland : Thx a lot man , yeah you were right about the pose , I slightely move her left foot to give her more stability ... find it better like that ?
Yes , I'm gonna reuse the same body mesh for the others , because they have totally different poses and POV , so I guess it should be fine ... I 'm gonna make different faces and clothes tho ... Thx for droppin by mate !

@ Rebecca : Thx a lot Beckie ... huhu ^^ chears !

@ Coochaki : Thx a lot Mohammad !!

@ DimitrisLiatsos : :scream: .... :beer:

@ Rebecca again : What ? your panoramic korean eyes had a failure ? :D :wise:
Maybe I could get that butt pic as avatar ... nah every girls would throw stones at me if so ... :scream:

@ Silgrin : Thx a lot , well texture won't appear very soon , I'm gonna model another character before ... And I cheated on the pose , I separated the model in diferents parts to move it independently ... and remerged these and tweaked to look it better ... faster way for me than a complex skinning and rigging for a pretty heavy mesh like this one since I totally suck at skinning and such ...

@ Poonks : Thx a lot friend ... hey I work the much I can !!!

@ daWinky : Hey Sabie , great to see you !! Thank you very much ! no I'm gonna start another one and get back to her for texture ... yep that's the plan ! :)

@ the best : Thx man !

@ BobbEr : Thx a lot Roman ! Glad you like it !!

@ makaron : Ahhaahah , thx a lot Mon ' .... for the peanut , I can go to bed now and sleep well without any worries about by greed for peanuts :) ...

cheers everyone ,

03 March 2006, 06:07 AM
hmmm the expression need more working maybe u can make her hand cover all her face like this
or make her face like this

03 March 2006, 08:53 AM
impressive character. For the pose I would just change a little the hand on the head. I would put it a little more down and would let less hole between the fingers (les doigts plus rapproches).

Good luck for next steps.:D

03 March 2006, 09:08 AM
Hey hey great expression my friend! :thumbsup:

I will say the same thing than authentic... surtout le petit doigt qui est trop droit et trop en l'air...

Keep it up :)

03 March 2006, 09:30 AM
Beautiful elf. You got talent...No kidding.This is Animazing!!! At first I thought those ears are a bit much, I looked again... and I can't find anything wrong.Your modeling is truly superior.

03 March 2006, 09:58 AM
Wow, this would make a great Tylenol commercial...for elves.

I agree with Becca here, she looks like she has a bad headache:scream: , but really good for the situation, very convincing...:thumbsup: ...Great work Stéphane, your character modeling is amazing! Now I'm waiting for the other elves!:bounce:

It really looks very cool - great work :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 01:08 PM
@ Oweron : Ahah , I would say that the effect would be very less interesting with jogger pants and a big coat :scream: ... Thx a lot man ... will try to not disappoint you with the next ...

@ makaron : aha , I was thinking make her some red hair but now , I feel tempted to make them blond :scream: ... btw If someday I go to Sweden , remind me to check you ears :D ... nyark , nyark !

@ shakes : Thx a lot John !!

@ the best : Thx a lot Tony !!

@ rattlesnake : Ahahah ! Thx a lot Jorge ... somehow I think our attention is always more focused on the anatomy when there are cloths on than she would be fully naked :curious: :scream:

@ schaal : Hi there ! thx a lot man !

@ megabytes2004 : Thx a lot ! I'm planning to start textures when this will be done ...

@ Gunilla : Mon Derriere Rouler :scream: ... :scream: I'm always fascinated by women 's practical senses ! ... I thought about how is it holding , so I hooked it in her back , but I didn't thought about her moves .... mmmh ... food for thoughts... :wise: ...
Thx a lot dear !

@ DimitrisLiatsos : Bunch of nyark Dimi ... Hey ! you're a mind reader , I thought maybe add some rings or something on their hands :)

03 March 2006, 05:03 PM
Very nice concepts! Wow... I like your style. The modeling is great too. Good Luck Zap :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 06:47 PM
I'm always fascinated by women 's practical senses !

Haha - well it's simply like.."hey - cool outfit...I wonder how it would look on me?" If women where practical we wouldn't wear high heels, right? :D

So - just chatting away here - waiting for her legs... and her high heels? ;)

03 March 2006, 06:52 PM

i like a lot your modeling, very clean, and nice characters, you do a great work. :wip:

Keep this way. :beer:

03 March 2006, 06:53 PM

I bet its ducktape :P that her "shirt" is made off... :bounce: so she can run around in the woods without it falls off...

03 March 2006, 07:29 PM
Looking great! The hip area looks a little flat, but I may just be the angle.

03 March 2006, 10:31 PM
@ reiv : Aaaahhh ... my favourite 3d artist around !! thx a lot man , and thx for coming by over here ! cheers ... :)

@ Crying Horn : Thx a lot man ! best of luck to you too !

@ CHAMPWY : thx a lot for your kind words ! best of luck to you too !

@ Gunilla : Ahahah , even if I have no idea how you look like , somehow it's way more pleasant to picture you with that kind of cloths than a rubbersuit :p ... I know : IYD,B :scream: ...
And oh god I was so lazy today , torn between 2 hours of snailing in front the tv then 2 mins of extruding edges then delete then go back to the couch ... :argh: ... so I guess you will have to wait tomorrow evening to see some high heels here :blush: ... I know : shame on me :banghead:

@ SuperXCM : Hey Lombardo , thx a lot man , glad to hear you like it ... ouh I have to find your thread mate ! cheers ....

@ makaron : ahah , well if we could imagine that there 's only summer in heroic lands , maybe it also can't defy gravity too , isn't it ? and Mr Newton is sleeping quietly in his grave... :D

@ Vedic kings : Thx a lot Josh ... mmh ... I didn't see that ... mmh maybe it's the angle ... wait I have to check that ! thx man ...

cheers everyone ,


03 March 2006, 06:22 AM
Morning Stéphane!

Wow, the second character is already half finished, really no snailing around here:eek: !

She's again very beautiful:thumbsup: ...interesting to see your vision of "clothing"...very minimalist, no waisting of fabric:D !

Have a nice day!:wavey:


03 March 2006, 06:25 AM
Nyark! time to wake up mr Newton then, when you gonna design the 3rd elf... Zapan... haha :p hope you show us "your" legs soon... :bounce:

wOw CrazY boY:scream:

I dont have words enough strong to say all what I think :o
no doesnt imagine anything other :p
I speak just about the organic modeling carried out with success :p
in any case cheer !
Before I manage to do that, I believe that it will be necessary that I rise early (however I already early rise 5 hour of the morning :p)

Keep up the good work Cadet huhuhu :D

03 March 2006, 11:19 AM
Héhé... your weather way totally agree me... nothing for the trash... I keep her :beer:

03 March 2006, 02:54 PM
now that's what i call detail ! :drool:

everything looking just fantastic and clean. Defenitly think you're a great modeler and maybe i could even use your help on something :blush:

You're doing amazing stuff here!

03 March 2006, 03:11 PM
hey zapan, keep it up, man. yup, the pose on the first girl is perfect now, especially with the adjustment of the hand, too. for the second girl, well, she's going to be as good as the first, obviously. i'm a huge fan of her, um, thong/bikini type thing. let's hope fashion comes around to your way of thinking...


03 March 2006, 07:03 PM
Heya Steph, :) I'm really lovin' the Victoria's Secret Elf ~ who knew that elves could be panty models? :D :scream: But seriously (if this is possible) great work! :thumbsup:

Chears, :)


03 March 2006, 07:19 PM

03 March 2006, 03:52 AM

Is that the wire for unsmoothed version? cause if u say that is the smoothed version i must say :


03 March 2006, 04:54 AM
Awesomeness !!! :bounce:

03 March 2006, 06:58 AM
Morning Stéph!

Huh, I'm again a little late now with comments, but this is just because you're unfamiliar fast working now:blush: !

The elf is just great, very beautiful:thumbsup: and I say nothing about the practical side of high heels in the forest...maybe your elves are on the journey to Paris, starting a model career...
Looking forward to see the last one posed!:bounce:

Have a nice day!


03 March 2006, 07:03 AM

"Hello, Mrs. Brouty? It's about your son..."

@ beelow : thx a lot Bryce !! ouh I'm gonna check your portfolio w00t !

@ stavrevstefan : thx a lot , no no that's the lowpoly wireframe ... ahah

@ tilite : Thx a lot mate !!

Ok I had some problems with the duck pose ... really difficult pose me think , so I have to rework and edit each part of the model in pose ... so things should go a little bit slower for a while ... But as I'm working parts separately , I will texture them in the same time ...
So see you guys soon and thx everybody for the splendid support you gave me until now , you guys rock !!

cheers ,


EDIT : @ daWinky : thx a lot Sabrina , yeah isn't that crazy ? , well ,no doubts I'm gonna slow down with textures and stuff ... huhu ^^

03 March 2006, 07:03 AM
I'm a little aroused, nice work! :applause:

03 March 2006, 07:09 AM
Morning Steph!
Oh yeah, Monas idea of placing a small snail in there somewhere is really good. Should be a good Trademark for your future work

And you think my parents could understand a single word in english ???

Well... I do speak some french, and if they speak korean perhaps Beckie...?

03 March 2006, 10:17 AM
That is one pretty elf.

03 March 2006, 10:27 AM
Thanks god...

Cause if u said that was smoothed wire, i would have quited 3d...hehe

Will be around waiting to see her hair.I have never made hair like that.Usually with paint effects or hair plugin in maya,but it is very slow for render and animation...

So could u give me some directions,maybe some tutorial u learned from or whatever to help me make a hair like that.If i try i would definetly make it, but i just wanna read about the process , to see how other people make it...

I am 17,still have lots lots to learn so Zapan help Bro...

03 March 2006, 01:22 PM
Ca commence a bien déchirer !!!

Very good stuff Zapan, I like your model and the details !

Good luck for this challenge ;)

Hi all !

Small update to show you that I'm still on it ... and also to show to a little swedish bird that I'm not snailing ...

She still needs a lot of surgery on her arms and legs , but at least I think I'm going somewhere with this.
And since that's a really boring work to tweak all these bad deformations I made some tests on few plans of the hair shader ...

Will come back later for the full pose and also with the whole haircut ... she kinda looks like Gollum with her actual haircut ...

let me know what you guys think of

cheers ,


03 March 2006, 02:43 PM
Putain, tu me déchires ! Excellent boulot ! le rendu est top et la texture de cheveux excellente ! Continue, ça sent l'award !

You really kick my ass ! Great job ! Render and texture of heir are great ! If you continue it will smell the award !

03 March 2006, 02:48 PM
Wonderful works. The facial epression is killing. Looking forward for the next update. Thumbs up.:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 02:48 PM
I love it ...

Please tell me how did u make the hair?

Paint effects? or just polygons with texture...

And keep up this great work

03 March 2006, 02:50 PM
wow, is great. really so good. The pose, expression I liked. Great update Steph

@ SONIC-X : Thx a lot for her , Corrie !

@ stavrevstefan : Well I think this kind of hair works pretty well for a picture ... but I'm not sure it will be faster to render tho ... I don't really know tutorial about this technic , I discovered this on a thread few years ago ... and then a I spend lot of time tweaking to find a good setting ... but the thing is pretty simple : one hair black and white map on in the alpha channel of the shader ... the same one in the specular channel , and the inverted one of the same in the bump channel ... that's it ...

@ pitiwazou : Hey Cédric , great to see you , thx a lot mate !

@ ][ndy : Thx a lot mate ! well I hope I won't scerw this up with really bad textures ....
