The obin are forrest dwellers. The are one of the smallest races on middle earth. They were created by elf magic watch over the forrest passage ways of middle earth and report any happenings to the elves.

They are always a pair, meaning each Obin has a twin. One cannot survive without the other. The stand between 16 and 24 inches high. Since the were created from elf magic they have special limited abilities. They are very fast and agile. They can also shape shift into other creatures they're size. They have the ability to communicate with their twin telepathically, as well as most animal and elves. They are for the most part peaceful, but can be great assets in battle as spies since the have the ability to blend into their environments.

Thats it for now. I working on the sketch, I won'thave my scanner back until tomorrow.

01-11-2003, 08:23 PM

01-11-2003, 08:24 PM

01-12-2003, 01:26 AM

E-A-G-L-E-S :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

TUNED HERE!!:wavey:

01-12-2003, 03:03 AM
Thanks oz!

As always I wish I was as quick as you witht the concepts.

I've done a few quick sketches based on one of my fav comic artists francisco herrera. I love how he draws his characters. still no scanner yet.

These two obin don't exactly look alike. One will be slightly thicker than the other and they will be dressed differently.


01-12-2003, 03:18 AM
Great concept!! I love it.

My character is a sort of magical product creature too... and a reporter too! Hehe. Nice coincidence.

I can't wait to see some sketches.

01-13-2003, 03:02 AM
this is Nib, one of the twins. Still rough. I working on his twin Moyi.


Sorry it's so big.

01-13-2003, 03:04 AM
Don't be sorry, it gives us time to stare at it's simple beauty!:thumbsup:

Looking nice dmonk. More! More!

01-13-2003, 03:41 AM

01-13-2003, 11:30 PM

01-14-2003, 02:06 AM
looking nice d-monk

you have to click on the attachments from now on , its to keep the server load down. Outside linking will load without clicking on them.


01-14-2003, 02:10 AM
He has a nose!

I'll link from my webspace from now on. I'll replace those that I attached. Thanks for the replies guys.:wavey:


01-15-2003, 05:33 AM
just made some slight changes.http://mywebpages.comcast.net/minboin/images/Lor_6.jpg

01-16-2003, 05:24 AM
Didnt have time to put in much work today on the model but I did start the teeth.

Good night :wavey: I'm beat.

01-17-2003, 12:27 AM
comin along nice:thumbsup: ..seein your startin to put in some morph-maps...

may the weeks-end bring sununshine to your neighborhood and speed to your creativity:cool:

01-17-2003, 12:55 PM
No morph maps yet the defualt morph will be with the mouth open because i have to close the mouth with the teeth in it. I have so little time these days with work and all. Hopefully this weekend the gods of 3d will grant me the ability to model some kick as ears at least.

Jerseys still cold and it snowed like a mofo last night I find out as i'm looking out the window. This just means the eagles are gonna kick tampa bays ass this sunday.


Thanks for the comments Pigwater. Anyone else feel free to chime in if they think this completely sucks or think its better than a 5 years old attempt at modeling.

Hasta la Pasta! time to put in another 9 hours at the mortgage company.

01-23-2003, 01:15 AM
I've been slacking. I started the ears, they still are a bit goofy looking and the teeth aren't 100% yet.

Tell me what you think. I'm going to work on it some more tonight.http://www.toonfreak.com/~dmonk/images/lor_8.jpg

Too buisy. I haven't been spending anytime on it. too mmany things going on at once. I will finish this time. I think the last 3 weeks I'll kick it into high gear. Thanks for the support though.

01-30-2003, 03:50 AM
Slowly, but surely.


01-31-2003, 04:16 AM

02-08-2003, 09:25 PM
I'm such a slacker!:surprised


02-08-2003, 11:07 PM

02-09-2003, 02:47 AM
Coming along nicely :)

The shoulders are a little oddly shaped though... And he needs nipples desperately!! :D

There is something about his face that reminds me of the character "Roach" from the 80's film "The People Under The Stairs" :surprised

02-09-2003, 03:02 AM
heh ... funny ... reminds me of Kevin Bacon ... nevertheless the model is tre nice ..

02-09-2003, 04:31 PM
Leigh :
My girlfriend said the same things about the shoulders so I'm gonna make some changes. Ant the nipples are coming. Unless I decide the this race doesn't have nipples, But nipples are great and every creature needs nipples so I guess they'll go in.

Kevin Bacon? I would have never seen that. Thanks for the comp.


02-09-2003, 05:33 PM
... no problemz dmonk ... was watching 'the hollow man' a few days ago and yer character reminded me of K.B. ... while you're at the shoulders you might wanna look at the collarbone too ... the tendons from the neck seem to go over it and connect to the pectorals ... just an observation ...

02-09-2003, 05:57 PM
I noticed that I just haven't gotten to it yet. Thanks though.:wavey:

02-21-2003, 04:18 AM

Green or Grey? Just trying out the xsi exp on my home pc. They have this eyeshader but I don't know if i'm going to use it. Sorry for the slow progress. I'm just to tired at the end of the day to work on this.

02-25-2003, 01:34 AM
it sucks but theres no way in hell I'm finishing by the deadline. But you will see this guy in the work in progress section.

I was think how much this character reminded me of nightcrawler, who knows.

Oh well.

Another one bites the dust.

02-25-2003, 04:21 AM

Last update for a while. this thread will pop up again on the works in progress forum.
It's been fun!:wavey:

02-25-2003, 03:07 PM
