Title: Lady Bird

FAQ: NO, she's NOT my mother-in-law! :)

02 February 2003, 10:43 AM
Pretty dark, isn't it? Could you maybe get a lighter background? As always it would be nice to see a wire.
It kinda looks like a painting, you could frame that :D Cool! :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 10:53 AM
ah damn i thought LARRY BIRD :scream:
Its too early :P
Nice work though...

02 February 2003, 11:00 AM
Yes, pretty dark.

This is brilliant, I give you 4 stars.

02 February 2003, 11:30 AM
Wow-she has really personality!
I like the feathers around her neck and the stylized appearance!
Cool, love to see more characters of that kind.

02 February 2003, 11:30 AM
Excellent work:thumbsup: Brighten it up a bit so we can see it in all its glory:bounce:

02 February 2003, 11:32 AM
Hmm, yes I likes that I does. And it's perfect the way it is; the darkness really adds focus to the face. Well done indeed.

02 February 2003, 11:35 AM
:thumbsup: Excellent detail and mood !!! . I really like the dark mood and colors .

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

P.S : Have u made any blend shapes (morph targets ) for her ?

If yes , post some....:beer:

02 February 2003, 11:44 AM
Maybe its the setup i have on my monitor but i just think it would look a little better a bit brighter.

A bit like this

02 February 2003, 11:45 AM
It's really excellent !, i love it.

02 February 2003, 11:53 AM
Really cool.So intense!...please! put a link to an hires version!!!!

02 February 2003, 11:55 AM
Hi Pupi and welcome aboard:beer:

Your lady is simply amazing! No any crits! You should definetely link a higher res version because its a master piece!!!

I ve looked to your gallery and love all your work:love:

Hope to see another work from you soon:D

02 February 2003, 12:08 PM
So you did that great rhinocerous!

Great work, and a brilliant character!
btw - I love the darker lighting.

The texturing is so nicely harsh - like cellophane paper.
Is that all UV'd? Or procedural?

02 February 2003, 12:11 PM
the lighting and texturing are great.
the whole scene looks very harmonic.

02 February 2003, 01:11 PM
dark & gothic
just the way I like it


02 February 2003, 01:39 PM
just wanted to say very very nice, i like her expresseion the colors match very nice with her charakter. she looks like an old witch and on the otherway not. you have put a little of an oilpart feeling over it. very nice :-)

good Luck.

02 February 2003, 03:50 PM

I love her...I mean it.

02 February 2003, 03:55 PM
Wow. Some people are just born masters! Excellent!

02 February 2003, 04:10 PM

:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

wish software did you use for rendering ???

02 February 2003, 04:15 PM
Wow, pupii!
This looks awesome! I love the whole scenery. Lightnig and modeling is exellent and the textures are simply amazing! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


02 February 2003, 04:20 PM
Please read the gallery rules before posting next time. I corrected your thread name for this once.

02 February 2003, 04:52 PM
Thanks for the comments. Here are some answers for the questions.

The picture is really dark a little bit, as I can see it now, but when I checked it out on my computer in photoshop, it was lighter, also on my computer at home it had another colour, so I couldn't decide which way I should correct it.

The hires version can be found under the following address aloung with all my works:

The texure is made by bodypaint and photoshop.

Sorry for the wrong title, next time it will be ok.


02 February 2003, 08:00 PM

You are the Cinema 4D god!

The background is perfect for the model. The lighting and texturing are fantastic! Absolutely nothing I could crit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

02 February 2003, 09:09 PM
that is really sweet lookin'!
nice job.

02 February 2003, 10:29 PM
wow amazing work in C4D !!! love it !! what modeling style did you use ? - started with a box, or did you do poly by poly method moving points around etc ??? great work !!!:bounce:

02 February 2003, 11:24 PM
that's just astonishing, great model, great texture, and great lighting, just great :thumbsup: and on top of everything a c4d user, wahay to the increasing number of great artists on this app :beer:

02 February 2003, 11:28 PM
Not to rain on anyones parade...maybe some hair coming out from under the hat thingy....just some flips of grey hair....maybe...other than that two two thumbsup....:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 11:47 PM
Simply beautiful dude, even amongst all the great work here, this is my favorite in a while. So much personality!
What did you use for reference?

02 February 2003, 11:58 PM
You Have A Very Great Style Man, Everything Is Very Well Done ! :D :thumbsup:
(if you just had put a BACKLIGHT for the Lady...)

02 February 2003, 12:11 AM
She's like a retired flapper. I think she'd fit well into a 1930's setting, well since she's retired make it 1940's. Ummm, she could also be a madam. You could stick her in New Orleans around the same time period, maybe earlier. Just some random input.

02 February 2003, 12:16 AM
awesome work! she reminds me of an old owl, Or an old eagle. Very bird-like. Love the sylized look!


02 February 2003, 12:38 AM
I think that it is brillant, but I imagine ur already aware of that. I was wondering if you designed this character as well and if so if you might post that drawing. Other than that I would love to get any tips on how you went around making the skin.

Well done

02 February 2003, 01:49 AM
wow.... It's so unique! Amazing stuff! so expressive...

02 February 2003, 01:52 AM
Very cool...I like it very much!

Beautiful work in Cinema 4D! Way to go!!

:beer: :beer:

02 February 2003, 02:14 AM
nice work....reminds me of that parrot fish i had a while back.
but the cool thing is it has that old masters painting feel...
not very in as far as what most people dig out here on the tech stuff or cars or space ships and what not.
defintly cool looking.......

(gotta get back to painting and forget this mouse and menu stuff)

but as long as you are trying you dont have to be sorry anyways...and the non any thing else speaking people are concerned ...its just too bad for all of us who dont know it...:lightbulb

02 February 2003, 03:08 AM
great work, it looks like my grandma :p


02 February 2003, 03:52 AM
that is pimped out!!!!:bounce: :bounce:

02 February 2003, 05:29 AM
very nice art man! i think it's she looked at the camera like that...that look on her face. it's amazing.:drool:

her character is so vivid.
you should post some wires though.

how did you do the textures? did you paint them or are they procedurals?

very good! keep it coming

02 February 2003, 05:43 AM
wow, hot. :)
it's got a sort of gothic burlesque/vaudeville-style. and i can't say that i wouldn't love to see some more of this one.
i wonder though, if Remi is right... i think he is. some hair coming out from under that hat of hers would probably give it more realism, and it looks as though your a bit after the "charicature"/real character-look.

take care, and show us more :)

02 February 2003, 07:19 AM
clearly you used a bump map... did you also use a displacement map? Some of those wrinkles really trench!

I told the other members in the C4D forum that I wanted to be like you, he he he.

02 February 2003, 08:25 AM
Sweet:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 11:50 AM
I love it dude!

Soooo much character!!!!!!

I love the darker picture as well!!!

Keep up the great work!:applause:

02 February 2003, 12:49 PM
I love everything about this image, and when I saw the full res one I loved it even more :) you always had a thing with textures that really shouts out at you. I especially loved the rhino texture you did and emailed you on that actually :).

All in all amazing, and she kinda reminds me of Cruella deville :D I'll link your gallery pic in your first post so peeps won't have to click on a low res link :)

02 February 2003, 01:26 PM
Amazing model and scary looking woman......... yeeiiiissshhh!

02 February 2003, 04:00 PM
Sorry for the delay, but I always have to ask a collegue to help me with English.
First of all, thanks for the award. Also, thanks for all the comments. Here are a few more answers:
I usually work with classical Box modelling.

I also have thought about her having some hair, but since she has a serious look, it would have not fitted her.

As a reference, I use my own draws.

Her skin is handpainted by bodypaint, it is not procedural, and there is not displacement map on it.


02 February 2003, 05:07 PM
How did you do the feathers? Excellent work!

02 February 2003, 06:11 PM
very nice, it definitely shows emotion, i really like the texturing. however, on the second post with the brightness turned up a bit, it seems like the right side of her face gets a little washed out. maybe a little too bright, but it doesn't even matter when you can just look at the hires version.

02 February 2003, 09:37 PM
Excellent texturing man !
The facial expression is fabulous, very beautiful work :airguitar

02 February 2003, 11:15 PM
Nice, really nice it kind of reminds me of that lady from, oh my god my brain just froze!!!, got it Great Expectations the movie, Ms.Disnmoor. Love the feathers:applause:

02 February 2003, 11:22 PM
Me likes it...

It reminds me of the old women who go to my church; nice job.

02 February 2003, 09:24 AM

She reminds me of 101 dalmatians,btw the overall look is amazingly alive. Even if (maybe) not completely original your work has prooved another time what awesome artist you are, pupii.
And that you deserves every single cents you get on work (if you are already I hope....).
