03 March 2003, 01:51 PM
lol it's damn great!

03 March 2003, 02:51 PM
Hey dude this entry kicks ass, i love that skin and i'm glad to see you becoming more frequent around da neighborhood.

I didn't have anything to do with it, did i?:surprised: j\k

Hope to see more yet in the future. I've been practicing but it's still a noob skin :).

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: Two thumbs up cause i know this is going to rock.


03 March 2003, 05:59 PM
You're such a bastard, man. I'll have to go back on my entry and really push it some more.

Awesome work, though. I really love the tightness of the shading you have on the gray area... and how you have all these little tiny form changes. It really gives it a lot of depth.


03 March 2003, 06:13 PM
that is some seriously nice shading, i am dreading to see the rest. Speaking of which, can we see the rest of the model or are you actually doing it in this order, finishing one bit totally and the rest later, are you going to have it come out of the floor lime that and what was the last one like? Ooops soo many questions, but then it is great work.


03 March 2003, 06:54 PM
wooohoo !! gorgeous indeed !
All i have to say is post more !!!

03 March 2003, 01:06 AM
man that looks awesome! Ill be watching!


03 March 2003, 05:00 AM
wow, thanks guys, thanks alot..

Soul wants the biggest, brightest spotlight in the world to stick under his desk so he can have underlighting on himself. hehe

TPE: what was the last one like? as in the last texture? unggg, i dont think i want to show it, hah, its pretty weak.
nah, i dont think ill be having him burst through the floor like that, i may just have him eating my eldar guardian model for the beauty shot :D hehe

Ill be putting 1 to 3 hours into that every day.. spent 3 hours on it yesterday to get it to the point its at now.

did i mention i used no overlays? :)
all hand painted

Alright, back to my other work, ill put in a few more hours on him today in a few hours.

Ill post more of the model as i do more of the texture :)

thanks again guys

03 March 2003, 10:52 AM
no! don't touch the poor eldar!


03 March 2003, 12:31 PM

Beautiful texture work!

03 March 2003, 01:06 AM
Ive been waiting for an update on this guy. Ive always liked your work. One thing though... judging from the reference it needs more color in it. on the grey I see pinks and blues of the reference and just mainly grey in your texture. but thats some damn mnice and sharp shading

03 March 2003, 06:37 AM

03 March 2003, 08:31 AM

03 March 2003, 02:20 AM


hehe, not many people see what i skin dir ;) most of my stuff isnt public, thats why im working on a new site with a friend ;) thanks tho, im glad its a noticeable improvement over my previously seen stuff.

03 March 2003, 02:57 AM
great job on the textures :)

03 March 2003, 03:34 AM
I think it looks great so far.

The only thing I can crit on is that it looks a little photoshoppy.....a little bit plastic.

If that is the look you are going for (and its not a bad look all the time), then ignore me. ;) But I think it would greatly add to it if you added some overlay textures.....even if randomly applied...just to break it all up a bit. Some kind of high rez inner mouth texture or some strawberry jam might work.

Just dig around on the net and look for various stuff to just drop over the entire texture to add that little extra bit of "realism" to it.

As it looks nice. It just looks like you too a photo of the actual warhammer fig and slapped it on the side (which I know you didn't do...hahaha)

Hope that helps.


P.S. I LOOOOVE the colors on his underbelly. Nice attention to detail with the grey and red.

03 March 2003, 05:35 AM
thanks Kos

Thanks for the crits, i checked out your site, daaaamn nice stuff, realy dig the webpage graphics man.

yea, its got that funky PS look doesnt it... iv done 100% of this thing sofar by hand, all hand painted, usualy dont like using overlays, but i do have a few hundred megs of choice overlays :)
Thanks, too bad the figures arent that detailed eh? :)

thanks again, ill definately look into givinghim more texture and such, but ill probably stay totaly hand painted.. the colors are all pretty similar, not much color variation, that may help alot.

those colors are awesome i love it!

03 March 2003, 08:11 PM
Sure thing!

And you are right, overlays aren't always the have a good thing going here, but he definitely needs just a bit to break him up.....handpainted, overlay or otherwise. ;) You are on the right track though. its still impressive as is....

Thanks for the comments, btw.

About overlays...normally I would agree but in this case I wouldn't bother. The Games Workshop style is often ultra clean and has a lot of saturated colour, just like this. You've done an ace job HyPer, and since this is about expanding an existing franchise I think you've got it spot on. Wouldn't be surprised if GW offered you a job :)
Having said all that, anyone checked out the MMORPG they're making based on the Warhammer fantasy world? Looking pretty dark, but good :D

03 March 2003, 09:09 AM
hows this one coming? your going to give everyone a close finish! hope you finish it up, youve got the whole weekend :p


04 April 2003, 11:07 AM
