This concept is basically showing that looks can be deceiving. Even though it may seem certain people are suppose to be pure a nature in the position that they are in. May not always be the case. In other words don't judge a books by its cover. (it might just be the devil in disguise:twisted:)

update on the roof.

great concept! :thumbsup:

do be carefull with the booleans ;-)

a church could be an awsome scene for some strange stuff.
but these rooms are so hard to render in a descent frame, so you might wanna check the JS_fisheye from

i've used it and and it give's a new dimention to high buildings.

a few suggestions: if you get the mood of the church wrong then it could look like a scene for satanisme. So keeping it godly would be a good thing.
I also think - and this is what i would do - is to keep it more to the ordinary side and give a little twist. For example: i would model the face like an everyday priest, but make the face red or something. If you are gonna do an animation, it could be great to keep the true identity of the priest hidden until a certain point

cheers and good luck

another update. Does anyone know a crowd simulator for maya 8 or 8.5?

08 August 2007, 02:39 PM
For a simple crowd, try with CrowdMaker 0.5, you can download it at the rar file contains some scripts, a text file with the installation process and sample scenes. You can create a crowd of 1000 particles max.

You will need some animation clips to use it.

Sorry for the delay,(Work) this is a start of the preachers face

another update

scary concept! ;)

Looking good so far. I would move that whole arm up (deltoid included). It looks really low in placement and causes the shoulder to have a strange transition into the neck. BUT, who knows, maybe this part of your design for your devilish creation! Those demons come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. :scream:
