hi, its an image made with 3dsmax5 and Brazil 1.0

02 February 2003, 10:57 PM
WOW the texture and lighting are great! could you post a wireframe? I am curious to see how (if at all) you modeled the scars/deformation, or if they are only part of the texture.

02 February 2003, 11:03 PM
great modeling/texturing/lighting/idea.........seriously man...nice, just think that u could work some more on the screws material and that´s it

Holy toledo.... I saw that thing on the banner and thought to myself 'wow, what a dramatic and interesting photo... waitaminute what am I saying-- I'm browsing CGtalk!!!'

Something about the eye shading isn't quite right, the whites of the eyes are too isolated from the darkness around them... and the ears seem a bit too simplified, though it's hard to tell from this angle. That's about all I can pick out... yeesh, is that ever a magnificent characterization of the Monster...

That's great, i really like the colors and the whole mood of this image. I agree about the "great modeling/texturing/lighting/idea" =)

If I'd change anything, it's be the size of the neck bolts (a bit bigger), but that's only preference.

02 February 2003, 11:32 PM
wow, that's pretty good. Nice job. What was your reference?

02 February 2003, 11:32 PM

Superb work.

The only thing that kinda lets it down a bit is the bolt on the neck - the model could haven had a little more detail, and less sharp edges, as well as a nicer texture, but otherwise it's a fantastic piece!

The model is really great - the expression and the actual facial features are really cool, particularly because his facial features are very unique - this certainly is a very authentic looking model.

I also really like the fact that he is not looking at the camera.

02 February 2003, 11:57 PM
o my god this is so impressive!! when i saw it i thought it was a real picture!! Damn this is some fine piece of modelwork!! I agree about the bolt though, definitely needs more detail, perhaps it needs to be a bit "beefier', but damn...this is so incredibly real!!

A wonderful work of art!

02 February 2003, 12:01 AM
thats pretty cool. Have you used the skin shader (brazil 1.0.14)? if you didn't, i'd love to see it with it.. the subdermal and deep scattering with it could really give it some *oomph* (i've only seen the skin shader used on normal smooth skin up to now :) (well, except that hairy "sphere" i've seen around..)

02 February 2003, 12:06 AM
nice moody image and what refracted said

refracted:(well, except that hairy "sphere" i've seen around..)


02 February 2003, 12:09 AM
Nice!! was this from that book, or did it help you?

02 February 2003, 12:48 AM
Awsome work there.. thought i was looking at a photograph ;) nice work there.

Could ya post a wireframe please.. would love to see it ;)

Only critique is the ears seem simple, and the bolts look too simple too.

Love the eyes, and the lighting :D :D

02 February 2003, 01:22 AM
c'est suberbe, les textures et l'éclairage sont de toutes beautés. si tu pouvais décrire un peu comment t'as fais ?:thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 01:22 AM

02 February 2003, 01:42 AM
definitely a 5 stars one!!!!

BTW I tell you that your image and another Cartoon Frankestein I could see days ago here have impressed me so much that I'm going to make my own Frankie!!! :)

02 February 2003, 01:59 AM
Franchement trop beau on dirais une photo!! :)

02 February 2003, 02:23 AM
:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

looks great!


02 February 2003, 02:53 AM
Wow, this is realyl awesome. It is not onyl well done from a technical point of view but also mood and image- composition are great as well... As Leigh already said, I too like the fact that his eyes "avoid" the camera...

02 February 2003, 04:54 AM
That image fooled me. When I saw the plug, I thought "oh, that's a nice Photoshop painting", but then I was suprised to find that it was 3D.

Nice job!!

This image makes me want to watch the film"Monster Squad". If you've never seen it, check it out.

02 February 2003, 05:05 AM
Damn that's good! The design, the modeling, the textures, the lighting... excellent!

02 February 2003, 05:28 AM

I almost popped a vein there. NICE work.

02 February 2003, 05:38 AM
I'm not convinced it's all CG.

Please prove me wrong!!!!!!

lets see some wires and texture maps.

C'est vrai?......Je voudrai voir le image de texture et le model...
Sie vuex plai.

J'ai regret...mon francias n'est pas tre bein.

02 February 2003, 06:22 AM

02 February 2003, 09:42 AM
Amazing !

I'm also very interested in seeing the wireframe of your model, is it possible ?
It's so impressive.
Congratulations !

Le jour ou j'arriverai à ça je me fais moine :beer:

02 February 2003, 11:09 AM
great :) i agree whit the coment about the neck

02 February 2003, 11:58 AM
i agree with all.

But i find bolt, a bit poor.

EDIT: ok, i've just seen this notice already exists :wip:

Anyway it's great

02 February 2003, 12:03 PM
holy cow, this is some amazing texturing modeling example! :applause:

02 February 2003, 01:00 PM

02 February 2003, 05:35 PM

el patator: je ne livre pas de pizza, mais presque ! c'est juste une passion pour le moment.

thank you

:beer: :beer:

i found that yesterday night : the 3D ILM frankenstein test.
there is a larger version here :

02 February 2003, 05:42 PM
Just superb work:buttrock:

Post the wireframe also.

02 February 2003, 05:56 PM
OH MY GOD!! 1000000000/10

Whats the for? an animation or just a still project?!?!
:bounce: :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 06:13 PM

i vote for a wireframed version

02 February 2003, 07:27 PM
awesome.the atmosphere and the strangement is excellent

the only aspect i dont like is the concept ,the literature version of monster(not the motion picture version) allows you to introduce other inner forms expressed in material forms of the monster attitude.

more imagination man and the same formal progresses :beer:

Superb work, I love it!!:applause:

02 February 2003, 12:30 PM
Wow! hehe very classy, I thought it was going to be a really, really good painting when I saw it on the front page, and got floored when I found out it was 3d ;)

02 February 2003, 01:04 PM
Could you post wireframe and/or other angles? :)

02 February 2003, 03:49 PM

Must see wire :wip:


02 February 2003, 11:35 PM
great work i love the textures especially

02 February 2003, 11:39 AM
Well I was mostly waiting on the wire, but you haven't answered yet and you're about to roll off the frontpage, soooo. I really dig the mood and photoreal quality you reached, I especially love the lighting and how they play with the textures, only thing I'd spruce up are the bolts ;)

:beer: :beer: THANK YOUUUUUUU
ok ok :) here are some stuff :
i use absolute charater tools 1.5 to deforme the mesh and for the sss.
i dont have Brazil 1.0.14 and the skin shader, but there are some
sss in the pict.
but i dont understand why the ear have so bad sss rendering.
i add a pict to show you some try with no sss and with it..

02 February 2003, 01:24 PM

02 February 2003, 01:25 PM

02 February 2003, 01:35 PM
I post last month in the wip section a "gollum" pict to test BRAZIL sss in brazil with wax shader. if someone have a good sss tut, please post it !
i think it's a morph btw steve mcqueen and gollum :)

02 February 2003, 02:52 PM
I've looked at this pic on 3 different computers, and each time it looks different. really interesting how monitor settings can greatly effect your opinion of an image. On my home PC i couldn't even see the eyes, then on this PC it looks great!

02 February 2003, 04:39 AM
Hey there,

Nice image.

Wax shader, wax shader.. ah yes - You can find some tutorials and examples on the registered users account page for sub-surface scattering.

That and your 'seven times a day' dope should get you started :)

Best regards,
Richard Annema

02 February 2003, 10:53 AM
Amazing work! I'd love to see it move around.:bounce:

more more!

Damn, this is an amazing image. Very very nice work.

02 February 2003, 09:27 PM
Nice work master of vision!

02 February 2003, 11:46 PM
A bit too much specularity on the nose maybe ?

Sinon ça roxe sévère sa maman ! Un chtit conseil : poste tes boulots aussi sur : Café Salé (


02 February 2003, 01:39 AM

I'd really like to see a wireframe of it.

Good work!

02 February 2003, 05:58 AM
It was modeled with Absolute Character Tools from cgCharacter...

To quote Marc Mordelet from a post on cgCharacter forum

"yep, i use your wonderfull plug to deform mesh, and i am preparing an animation with it."


02 February 2003, 02:17 AM
Now he'll be haunting me in my dreams... :surprised
