Latest Update: Modeling: Head (

06 June 2007, 02:10 PM (

Hello everybody,

Like all of you i decided to enter the competition.

This is my first concept sketch. It's a very quick and rough sketch to get an idea of what i want to make. Before i start modeling i will make more detailed drawings.

Goodluck to verybody and oh... comments are welcome.

06 June 2007, 02:26 PM
Nice concept, I can see this turning into a good entry. IS that a flag in his hand???

06 June 2007, 02:47 PM
Haha, I like the idea... though to be honest. I think it would make a much better entry if the pig were riding the man!!

06 June 2007, 02:59 PM
Riding a pig bearback... and without pants. Just remember to hide all those unmentionables under his gut in the turnaround shot. ;)

06 June 2007, 03:57 PM
haha - awesome concept! will be keeping an eye on this one!:thumbsup:

06 June 2007, 04:43 PM (

Hey cg219: Yep it's a flag. Updated it a bit.
SantoAnderson: I was planning to hide his unmentionables underneath his belly but i decided to make him wear a string. (ouch)

Anyway, here's an update

06 June 2007, 04:45 PM (

Composition adjusted

And by the way...thanks for all the comments.

06 June 2007, 05:41 PM
Wow, I REALLY need to get that thong image out of my mind. :eek:

06 June 2007, 10:18 PM (

Hello everybody,

I know you all can't wait to see the guy in the string but for the moment you have to do with the pig.
Still got a lot of detailing to do but here's a preview

Comments anyone.

06 June 2007, 01:18 AM
hey there,

you really don't let it rest for a moment huh.
And don't tell me the pig has a string too ? :twisted:


06 June 2007, 07:41 AM
Hey Nothingness,

At the moment i'm having alot of free time. (holidays) so i try to get a head start for the times
that i don't have the time.
If this time gives me the chance to model a string or two i'll be very happy to.
If anyone else wants a string just e-mail me your size and prefered color ;)



06 June 2007, 08:07 AM
Very nice piggy :).
And the concept too.
You are being clever with your time, it's going to pay back later...
Just one note: piggies belly looks like it is a raising ping in good shape, in other words, it looks a bit slim. What about adding some more flesh?
But if it is suppose to be a raising pig - never mind my comment :).

Good luck! Looking forward for updates from you.

Hey Musi,

You were right about his belly. I made him a bit fatter. Still got some detailing to do but he's coming along.

06 June 2007, 09:59 AM
the pig looks great.. i am not an expert in pig anatomy but it think it looks just fine..:thumbsup:

06 June 2007, 11:34 AM
Looks just great.

You seem to be more than used to model. What app do you prefer?
would be nice if we could learn something some one another. So don't be scared to give serious critique on my modeling. Looks like you are way better than me.


06 June 2007, 02:58 PM
He-he, that's what I am talking about :scream:!
Very nice!

06 June 2007, 12:42 PM (

Here's an update of my piggy. Uv mapping is a whole new world of pain.
The textures arent finished yet but i'm getting there.

Nico: Thanks for the comments. I am trying out modo at the moment. It's a great piece of software. You can download the demo on the luxology homepage.
By the look of you shoes you are quite a modeler yourself so if you have some critiques just spit it out.

07 July 2007, 02:11 PM (

Update on the model. Maybe i'm gonna give him a wooden leg.

07 July 2007, 02:13 PM (

simple grey shader

07 July 2007, 03:36 PM
cool modeling!good luck man!:)

07 July 2007, 11:25 PM
amazing update!

and so fast. I already tried modo but i simply hate the navigation. So bizarre and then i loose all interest in learning the modeling tools.

by the way, the shoes aren't all that amazing. :banghead:


07 July 2007, 01:23 AM
love the concept, this cracks me up.

07 July 2007, 07:47 AM
Maybe i'm gonna give him a wooden leg.
I'd love to see this.

07 July 2007, 11:40 AM
perfect modelling I see.... good, good :) I'm also for the wooden leg! as strange as possible :)

07 July 2007, 12:52 PM
hehe the pig's looking great with all that gear :) Not too kin on the texture though...all looks too procedural at the mo.. looking forward to more :thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 08:33 PM

pig is really nice modeled.
I'm impressed.


07 July 2007, 09:59 AM (

Ambient occlusion render

07 July 2007, 10:01 AM (

Hello everybody. Thanks alot for your support and comments.

On popluair demand i added the wooden leg.

Intervain you were absolutely right about the textures. I updated them.

07 July 2007, 05:37 PM (

Since the guy does need some shoes. Here they are. Feedback is always welcome.

07 July 2007, 05:40 PM (

This is the shoe with textures

07 July 2007, 09:26 PM
Wow! The work on the shoe looks amazing!

I'd like to see Cloud from FinalFantasy wear them! :beer:

Keep up the masterful work that seems to be flowing out of you!

07 July 2007, 10:01 PM
nice shoe :) - why is the lace finished in such a weird place and not tied? oh and LOL about that wooden leg!:thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 10:31 PM
Totally amazing modeling and texturing!

07 July 2007, 02:39 AM
amazing work on the shoe!!! i guess ur not finished with it yet coz it aint tied yet?:)

07 July 2007, 11:28 AM
Hello everybody,

thanks for the reply's.

I wasn't sure what to do with the shoelaces yet. But after you guys asked my why it's not tied i felt like i just had to do it. Thanks for pushing me :thumbsup:

Here are some updates. I added an extra seam (texture) underneath the laces.



07 July 2007, 11:30 AM (

Shoe with laces tied and texture update.

07 July 2007, 11:32 AM (

Close up

07 July 2007, 12:02 PM
Wow, really funny concept. And the modeling is awesome. :thumbsup:

Good luck with the challenge.

07 July 2007, 12:06 PM
he-he, the wooden piggy leg is good!
I guess you haven't done anything with shaders yet? The pig would benefit from some subsurface scattering...

And that's a very realistic shoe! Love it!


07 July 2007, 01:10 PM
Great texturing and modeling. One question, have you thought about adding mud to the shoe??

07 July 2007, 01:44 PM
High modeling stuff here !
Nice to see this on the run !

07 July 2007, 03:03 PM
Great modeling so far! Textures on the shoe are very nice!

07 July 2007, 10:39 AM
You are doing a good job.I quote for the mud and not only on the shoes.

07 July 2007, 05:22 PM
your shoe is really well done. Fabics are nicely applied on models.


You may add some spur hehe.


07 July 2007, 05:45 PM
Great modeling on shoe man!
I know what a nightmare is modeling a Shoestring!!!
Great work sofar, ;)

mim, :thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 03:49 PM
Wow, nice progress, the pig looks hilarious, and your modeling and texturing skills are very good.

Good luck :thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 04:07 PM
LOL! Your concept is hilarious!

Btw, great modeling! Those boots look like an old pair of hiking boots that I use to own. :D

07 July 2007, 10:34 PM (

Hello everybody,
