cheers mcf

03 March 2003, 04:00 AM
nice nice nice !
and if we can see would be perfect.. Good job!

03 March 2003, 04:17 AM
Yup, it seen too dark for me....but anyway i still can see the detail, welldone.....thanks lar

p/s:- r we gonna see his animation?!


03 March 2003, 04:24 AM
It looks very nice, but it does look more like an action figure. Some of the atomy and textures are off, mainly in the lower part of the body. I would really like to see a wireframe, and how many polygons you used, could you also post one without the textures. Besides some of my previous coments iI think it is very good, of the stuff i've seen from you, everything rocks:thumbsup:

O YEAH, the axe looks great, what program did you use to model the whole thing, did you use a different application to render the images. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET BRAZIL?:D

03 March 2003, 04:46 AM
The idea was to make it looks like an acction figure, that is the way I am presenting my demo reel.
well, I used Softimage XSI 3.0 and it was iluminated
with just direccional lights or infinits in xsi.
I gonna try to light up a little bit the images, and thank you very much for your feed back.

03 March 2003, 07:03 AM
Beautiful texture and the modeling isd superb !

Show us more of your work !

03 March 2003, 10:33 AM
Really nice!! Love the detail:cool:

03 March 2003, 12:25 PM
maybe you should lighten up the background a little instead of your model...could make a huge difference as well

nice work otherwise.

03 March 2003, 12:25 PM
hehe, if not to busy pabs, close up of face and a wire? kick ass man, can't wait to see everything together!

03 March 2003, 12:39 PM
Truely a wonderful piece of work!
Congrats! i like the proportiuons and the finesse in the armor and weaponry!


03 March 2003, 01:20 PM
very dark and gloomy - but what I see is fine. The armor seems to be very complex and lavish.

03 March 2003, 01:22 PM

03 March 2003, 01:58 PM
i like the texture .....
modeling of the amor is really god.....
but one thing i gonna say is the face....
we can't really see the face cause of the hair....
the hair is bloking too much of the face....
will u setup this character for yes..
hope to see your animation...soon......:applause:

03 March 2003, 02:30 PM
(/me puts his lower jaw back in place)

Awesome! Enormous detail on the armor and very nice texturing. I agree the image is a little too dark and it would be nice to see more of his face, but still it's an incredible piece of work!


03 March 2003, 02:36 PM
Great work man, like everyone else I love the attention to detail on the armor!

03 March 2003, 03:28 PM
Very very good work! But the face does look a bit flat. Weird... The details, especially on the clothes, are mind-boggingly well made.

03 March 2003, 03:40 PM
The model and pose look great but the hair looks a little flat and lifeless, try giving it either some higlight or a little bit of motion and volume

03 March 2003, 04:09 PM
If he'd be any more real he'd jump from the screen. Superb work. How long did it take to make ?

03 March 2003, 04:43 PM
I like it alot:beer:

the scene is very nice but a bit dark-

The only other comment i have is that if you want it to look like an action figure on a display stand, then it should look like its connected to the stand in some way. I noticed that part right away when i looked at the picture. Maybe its just me though.

Good work man!!

03 March 2003, 05:13 PM
Do you have a backlight in there. If so you may try just birghtening it up. If not plop one in to make him pop off the background. Looks Great!

03 March 2003, 05:44 PM
I agree with Stimpy... the modelling and texturing rocks, but the image needs better figure/background relation. Light up a little the background.
Anyways, it's a GREAT character. I like it as it is by now. :)

03 March 2003, 05:47 PM
Very nice modelling...! The concept is also very good, keep us informed if you're going to post an animation ;)

03 March 2003, 06:08 PM
love it !! especially 'cause i'm a great fan of elves :)...

03 March 2003, 06:54 PM
really nice a detailled character, you should try to rerender it with a dark grey background so we can see the silhouette.. and maybe add a backlight or something....
nice work!

03 March 2003, 07:13 PM
If possible, I'd like to see some wireframes, textures, and some polycount specs on this guy. Is this for anything or just a demo model?

03 March 2003, 07:14 PM
why you have any stars?I like your work so much!

03 March 2003, 07:34 PM
VeRy sUperb MODeL! bRaVo!:applause: ! yEah niGhT elF as in waRcraFt3...

03 March 2003, 08:39 PM
Cool! ,,,it appears a bit dark, but I think by just adjusting the background to a flat grey color will help bring out the details that otherwise gets lost in the black:applause:

03 March 2003, 09:59 PM
ooh.. nicely nicley done.

Any closeups available...?

03 March 2003, 10:09 PM
freakin sweet..........i would have put that in the CG Challenge!!
good work:thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 12:22 AM
YOu have done some really nice things here with this character, other than what's been mentioned and such its very very well modeled and textured. I would play with the lighting a bit and give him another pose, some more dynamic. Get the hair flowing in an action shot, have him use that killer weapon, and you'll see how much more you can really push this model. When you've updated the pic let me know, but for now :)

You have received the CGtalk choice award .Please feel free to display this image anywhere you like! Very good work.

upon receiving this award, it guarantees you a spot in the cgtalk gallery hall of fame ( - which you are now placed

P.S. Please email me @ for the award .psd file


03 March 2003, 01:37 AM
thank you very much, guys for your replies, and the aword.
well, I didn't rig the hair yet, so may you have to wait a couple of weeks to see animation, /I am setting all the character for the different shots right now, so as soon as get some animation I wil let you know.
there goes some close ups and the origil concept.

thanks and enjoy it.

03 March 2003, 02:28 AM
nice work man, I really like this character hope everything works out for ya with the animation! Can't wait to see your final reel man.

03 March 2003, 04:36 AM
i'm still amazed by the detail on the armor you made! very excellent work.

hope to see an animation soon :)
cheers mcf

03 March 2003, 01:32 PM

The detail is amazing. :thumbsup:

I think the model looks too much like a human. The concept drawing doesnt look like a human, but more like a beast with human charastistics. You could change the skin of your model, make it more hairy on the face.

Keep the good work up :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 09:47 PM
more images guys.:rolleyes:

that armor is great... but you didn't follow the concept art (hair on feet and chin). But it still looks great

03 March 2003, 09:18 PM
:bowdown: :bowdown: Nicely done Pablo, excellent work with great attention to detail nice to see the finished piece.:thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 01:34 AM

pablov 10 stars for you!!
pero te saco 5 por el avatar asi que quedamo asi? 5 stars

03 March 2003, 02:05 AM
Great, I'm working on a knight character now and enjoy your armor man.

03 March 2003, 11:41 AM
hi guys, yes I really tried to follow the concep, but in 2d is different, was impossible to make the legs like the drawing,
looks horrible and missproportioned, so I changed a little bit.
well againg thank you for your replies.

03 March 2003, 06:06 PM
Dude Mann, I want to see this guy sever some heads. The detail is excellent. I really like the aged look to his armour and his face. More contrast with the background would show off your work better though. I know you have nothing to hide.

03 March 2003, 06:46 PM
impresionante, mucha onda blizzard lo cual lo hace mejor todavia!!!
podrias contarme un poco donde estas/estabas estudiando 3d, como llegaste ahi etc etc.??
(para los que todavia no arrancamos vio) :beer:

03 March 2003, 07:04 PM
Wow thats great stuff, I would like to see the model rendered to a lighter background, so we can get a load of the wonderfull detail in it

03 March 2003, 07:35 PM
this model is niiiiiiiiiice. did you by any chance use danzig as a reference?:p

03 March 2003, 09:30 PM
hey guys i posted new images on the fist page

03 March 2003, 10:52 PM

sorry guys my ftp went down for a couple of weeks, !!! BUT NOW IS BACK!!!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

04 April 2003, 08:45 PM
awesome! textures are excellent! :drool:

04 April 2003, 10:47 PM
That's one beaut of a model (with the amout of it I can see) :D

Don't like the hind legs though, but otherwise: :thumbsup:

Maybe you should choose another background than black? Can't see the textures correctly and the armour kind of blends in into the bg.

Take care.


04 April 2003, 10:58 PM
to really show off the armor how about putting him in an all white room? - and how does he look without the armor?


04 April 2003, 11:33 PM
hmmm... It's not my style, I like light, but other than that: Very detailed, that's what I like most about it.

no crits from me.

04 April 2003, 05:20 AM
AWESOME!... only suggestions is maybe darken the skin? seems so pale (maybe im just used to night elves being blue :D)

04 April 2003, 07:40 AM
amazing work!

04 April 2003, 11:28 AM
i like very much textures.... and model too.. it's really good work!

:beer: :beer: :beer:

04 April 2003, 11:29 AM
this might sound funny, but I love that Pedastal, stunning!

04 April 2003, 03:37 PM

Never heard of Dark Elves?


Anyway, I do agree. He looks great :thumbsup:

04 April 2003, 03:15 AM
thank guys for the feed back, actually i don't know if it is an elf or what but he is really evil, hahaha


04 April 2003, 02:40 AM
yeah, yeah, my class thinks that its really good, but i dont like the feet

04 April 2003, 06:55 AM
cool. I'd like to see this guy after a battle...say, with a dark knight or something. Bet he would whip the knight's sorry behind.

Then take the throne.

Awesome work!!!!:p

04 April 2003, 08:04 AM
