Hi guys, take a look at those 2 new render, the character has evolved a bit... this is probably the final render i'll post, I have lots of other stuff to find a job ;) so....

once again, comments are welcome...

cut and paste the links in your browser, if it dosen't show up :(


01 January 2002, 04:06 AM

great work. that skull in the stuff in his hand is outstanding.
btw, whats that stuff?

Really like it, especially the crab that is really funny (uh, I guess it's a crab ?) :)

01 January 2002, 01:42 PM
WoW! :D

Great model, and beautiful pose!
Nice render, too. What are you using?

And what a hell is that crab thing??? It seems dangerous, so I guess it works! :cool:

01 January 2002, 03:15 PM
Ahh I seem to be the only one w/ out a spoon/ weapon :eek: Really inventive stuff, one thing I can say is that no one really came up with the same Ideas like a couple of people feared.

El Gatto, perhaps tweek his chest so it is not so symetric, other than that, its great.

see you,

Hi !

Nice guy !
I'll be afraid if I have to use his magic weapon !!!

Maybe you can add some details to the face....
You're using Maya... well if you don't know Connect Poly Shape, get it ! It's a cool modeling script with toolbars, etc.

Hey El Gatto;

that's another really cool character! I like your model, the competition is this challenge is fierce!

This one is a little bit different: not viscious looking, but he doesn't really have a happy face either..? Kinda sad looking if you ask me... which suggests that he's got alot of personality = great modelling!

Keep it up, I want to see more...!

Salut Krep, I've tried CPS, but I didn't put a lot of time to it tho, I think it's just like subd's, am I right ?? is it better ?? well I'll give it a try again, thanks.

Epatnor, you might be right, hummmmm he does look kind of sad, I never looked at him this way... thanks for your comments and I'll try to show new stuff soon but I'm kinda out of ideas right now :(

thanks guys :)

Hi, this is probably the last update, it's not much, but I added a few details... :)


01 January 2002, 05:13 PM
Very Good!!
I think he needs some details in his wooden leg...mmm (a bite? :D )

You can put him next to a barrel.

Hi el gatto !

I think pabloz is right, try to give it a shape more .... rounded.

For Cspolytools and Meshtools, it's the firs time I used them. I think these two sets of tools are very usefull to add details on a model. Of course, I don't use all the commands, only seven or eight, they give you a lot of control.
I' ve also find a method quasi equivalent to the cut of Maya (wonderfull tool). In Edge sublevel, you divide edges (like you would do with cut poly), this gives you the ability to turn round your model while cutting. When it's done, you toggle in vertex sub level and make a Meshtools Connect. And that's it.

Btw good job, you should add details on the clothes (creases,...).
