View Full Version : Chalenge wip (cerreto)

12 December 2001, 02:04 AM
Ok im trying to go about the rules but in my interpataion of them lol

First i thought about the pirate theme and what a alien pirate might look like and how you would see him so , I figured that a pirate in space would be somone who would have to use what he comes across in his raids, which would be a wide range of styles of clothes , tools ,technology etc he would have some of the most advanced as well as most crude tecnologies

So i decided to give him medivel armor type shoulder armour asian styled belt gaurds for his abbs and side alot of belts to hold gear and weopons ! and a breathing aparatus to enable him to handle difrent type of enviroments as well as breath a gas type of drug to enhance strengt and reastion time durring a raid

I will be adding knee or thigh style boots with a medival alien look to them along with a large gloved hand and a mechanicel hand with forarm protection

tell me what you think so far this is basicly just a sketch so far really ruff and unrefined ill be adding alot more detail to the mechanics and armor as i go to make a decent model

hey you're fast! I just have a medium LOD body right now, no accessories (I kinda suck at non-organic modeling) great work so far. Amazing how unlike mine your interpretation is.

12 December 2001, 02:22 AM
that was the idea of the challenge to see how diferent we all view the same thing i thinkits going to be great my character when finished will look alot taller and thinner with all the props big feet etc

12 December 2001, 02:50 AM

12 December 2001, 03:44 PM
khar net ,forgot to peply to you sorry, I use lw for most of my modeliing, for diferent things i use diferent methods! The head i normally use a mixture of point by point and box, this head was a box because i didnt really need alot of detail with the mask etc ,

I usualy start poly by poly for alot of organics until i have the basic shape i want then i use band saw to give me more geometry where i need it ! This model is way heavy cause im not realy paying atention to poly count as its going to be a sculpture

Tools i use most are bandsaw , smooth shift ,merge, poly drag and weld

thanks for asking !

12 December 2001, 12:23 AM
Doh!! Nice start !!!! damn I never stop saying that.. :D All the wips are amazing.. boy this challenge is crazy!

12 December 2001, 12:38 AM
Thanks Big Dog !

12 December 2001, 06:50 AM
Thx for the info Cerreto :) I understand better how you construct your model now(why they're holes where you don't have attached things :))

12 December 2001, 08:27 AM
ok heres some more still working on ideas in my head the arms are going to get a whole lot of stuff i keep having to strecth him cause hes getting bulky most of the details on the chst neck and head are close to finished still need some more on the mask and the pipes going in to it

next will be the arms fore arms mechanical hand then ill mocve to those damn boots ill finish with his back still have so much to do deed back is apreciated !

12 December 2001, 08:41 AM

12 December 2001, 11:52 AM
i do love it.. the cloths and stuff are getting really great, looks almost like a samurai stuff, is so dam powerfulll;) keep posting wips

12 December 2001, 01:16 PM
I thought he should look friendly ... I wouldn't like to see him angry then !!! ;)

01 January 2002, 07:52 AM
sarted on the hand the shiny black part will be getting wires all over it ! [

01 January 2002, 08:27 AM

01 January 2002, 08:36 AM
those are the coolest hand iīve seen in a long time!!!!
those hydraulic stuff on top of the fingers are great!!!
my only suggestion is that u keep doing it the way u already are:)

keep it up, cerreto!

01 January 2002, 04:46 PM
its funny how you talk down to yourself, saying you suck and all...and you still manage to get some of the most impressive work done on this forum :)

01 January 2002, 06:11 PM
Well i have inspiration from some very good freinds :)

01 January 2002, 06:28 AM

01 January 2002, 06:31 AM

01 January 2002, 08:03 AM
here is a lil explanation of what is there and what im adding im going to have to do a skirt for the lower half as the poly count will be too high soon

01 January 2002, 11:03 PM
samll update

01 January 2002, 11:10 PM
quick ...get him to a psychiatric home.

01 January 2002, 05:45 AM
hum hum ... friendly they said ... :D

01 January 2002, 06:20 AM
this is true but i believe my character is far from looking friendly but freindly is a emotion , so ill have a render without his mask smiling LOL !besides at this point im using this character as fun practice there is alot of good work to be displayed by everyone so keep posting people !

01 January 2002, 11:11 AM
wow lots of details here!! If you want one of my tips, I always try in a certain way to balance my characters... like if I model a very complex arm, ill make an other part of the body simpler (like the torso for example) and the other tip is that I always try to get strong lines in the composition of the body, or oppostions ( big torso, little head) that's part of my style I guess, but if it can help.. for now your modelling skills are really good, but you should not be affraind to work again on general proportions to make it cooler. with this character I would go on a way big prosthesic hand, a thinner head and more bulked shoulders.. or something helse. For now all your parts are equal intensity if I can say that... does it help?;)

01 January 2002, 11:22 AM its right arm a giant cutter ?!?!?

or will he be able to bend it ?!?

01 January 2002, 01:47 PM
Looks Great, the armor rocks
only can't understand the right arm!

01 January 2002, 03:36 PM
hi everyone thanks for the feed back ! looks like i have a little explaning to do :) The right arm has just been started so it hasnt ben scaled to fot the arm and the hand amd glove are still to be finished .

Pascal thanks for the advice ill try to implement your sugestions as i agree they are good tips !

01 January 2002, 10:45 PM
tiny update kinda :)

01 January 2002, 05:27 AM
latest wip had to delete a few earleir running out of room on my server

01 January 2002, 06:31 AM
it's coming along very good Cerreto.
The wires on his rightshand don't make sense tho imo. they just run around his hand back to where they came from. insert them in his knuckles, that will look better I imho.

oh and you prolly know this allready, but his upper leg isn't smoothshaded.

Great work so far in any case. thumbs up.

01 January 2002, 10:56 AM
Very nicely detailed character, excellent work I must say! I think that the balance in the character is rather good, but then I like symmetry! And as said before, rocking armour... Pirates should have armour, right? All those sabel cuts... Ouch!

How about an addition of the challenge criteria:

>> Character should be able to lead old ladies across the street w/o causing heartattack. :)

Hmmm.... but which pirates in their right mind would do that...??


01 January 2002, 12:00 PM

could u texture it? =)

01 January 2002, 04:50 PM
He is starting to look a little freindly er . . . well with a few tweeks, he could be friendly like a Disney Deer ( you already have the right slanting eyes, just a wee bit bigger will make him a good guy, if you want him to be that is ;)

Amazing deatail on the armor, I especially love all the concave parts (on the armored arm, belt and the claws) it makes it look built out of metal not clay etc. Perhaps next time I will put some more detail into mine, as it is it just feels so flabby :( Oh well

See you,
