View Full Version : Snowstorm, Squidinc (3D)

03 March 2003, 04:47 PM (

Hi all, heres my latest :)
modelled, textured and rendered in C4D R8, postwork in photoshop

inspired by warhammer, warcraft and mechwarrior

03 March 2003, 07:10 PM
waaah no response yet? Awesome work! I really like the snowstorm effect.. it was also in another great piece I saw here lately.

Anyway, great detail! Do you have some more insights about it, like a wireframe? :)


03 March 2003, 07:14 PM
WOW really nice texturing and weather effects :)

a wireframe would be nice

great job :beer:

03 March 2003, 07:16 PM
I like this but the poses aren't working for me, which is odd because they are usually very effective in your other works. :beer:

03 March 2003, 07:20 PM
YO.......... C4 d R8 :applause:

Nice Photoshop work

03 March 2003, 08:02 PM
Awesome :eek: ! Show us a wireframe, please !

And how much of it is done in 3D ? Is the snow rendered ?

03 March 2003, 09:19 PM
the robots were rendered seperately and then put together in a 2d snow environment that was made with photoshop :)

heres a variation with structures in the background

and one with without the snow ( flag is slightly different here as its an older render )

and a wire of the mech

You know what? the only machine I see around here is YOU!! :p gawd you're insane sheesh. Tell me this, is that all procedural work?? My friend you make this software shine no doubt. Absolutely stunning! :thumbsup: [PLUGGED]


03 March 2003, 09:33 PM
lol :)
cheers Tito
yeah, all the textures are procedural apart from the alpha for the tears on the flag, I couldn't see an easy of getting tears to appear in the right places using shaders, cheers for the plug too :beer:

You deserve an award ;) hmm maybe there's one around here somewhere... be back have to search a bit for it ;)


03 March 2003, 09:44 PM
hey nice image there! the only thing i dislike is the pose, it looks too idle, maybe make him midstride and ready to attack, right now it just looks like hes standing outside getting cold!

but awesome work! :)


03 March 2003, 10:01 PM
Excellent work...! I have to agree on the pose thing though. But the composition work, the model and the material are all spot on.

Now I know again why I am saving up for C4D again, thanks :D

03 March 2003, 10:07 PM
Very nice, i like the details and the snow!
The only think i can crit is that it looks that the second robot is falling foreward,,,, but maybe it's just me
otherwise it rocks ;)

03 March 2003, 10:41 PM
VeRY nicE!!! thE mEch ROCks!:beer:

03 March 2003, 10:50 PM
That Is One Kick-Ass Image Dude! Slap that baby on a mouse pad a sell the sucker! I Know I Would!

03 March 2003, 11:20 PM
Oh, Very nice :D. The textures and model Looks very clean .... ah what the heck, topclass :thumbsup: . And i agree, you got to merchandise that :).
This whole thing gave me inspiration for my first piece of work im going to put up here soon. This is my debut post so hello everyone. I must say the people on this site here are awesome, And that just makes me want to do this even more, so that i can one day become as good as you :D . Anyway...Ahem...Back to work... Awesome, once again.

03 March 2003, 12:30 AM
Incredible work ! The atmosphere is really great, and texturing as modeling exceptionnal ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 12:36 AM
Great! :bowdown: And now it is time to animate a big battlefield or a fight in a destroyed city. :)

03 March 2003, 12:39 AM
sweet mech!!!! :beer:

03 March 2003, 12:44 AM
I play all 3 of those games and you brought out aspects of each one perfectly (The one I like the most is the flag on the back you got from warhammer correct?)

Anyways man kick ASS job. This probably takes the cake for my favorite model on the forums! :bounce: :thumbsup: :drool:

sure is, although its been a long time since I did anything with warhammer figures, I think it was the terminator space marines that used to have cool banners and things, can't remember for sure :)

03 March 2003, 12:57 AM
Yeah hehe, I used to be into Warhammer40k so much. I won atleast 200 bucks from winning painting competitions plus prolly 1k worth of stuff. But then it just started to pile up and I needed to get out more lmao.

Nice model and very nice texturing :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 03:21 AM
like a samurai

03 March 2003, 03:23 AM
wooo hooo the C4D god strikes again.

nice job squid man.

03 March 2003, 04:37 AM
Well done, Post more :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 04:44 AM
Great model, fabulous texturing but the final composition looks too white out even if it is a snowstorm.

03 March 2003, 05:16 AM
Although the atmosphere looks great in the snowstorm shot, I'm glad you added the other one without snow. It really shows off the spectacular modeling and texturing that was so concealed in the first pic. :beer:

03 March 2003, 08:30 AM
man, that's too cool!!!:buttrock:

You can never go wrong with GIANT ROBOTS! :buttrock:
I really like the textures! :applause:

03 March 2003, 01:49 PM
Another ultraquick, fantastic C4D work, thank you Squid! :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 05:32 PM
..ohh it got chicken legs! i want too eat you!... :cool:

03 March 2003, 07:00 PM
amazing work. completely inspiring. I'd love to see a scene with a couple of them duking it out, action, laser fire, etc. I think the version with the buildings in the background is the best one. The structures really add to the 'sense of place' and make you think there's a story, not just a model.

03 March 2003, 07:08 PM
Hehe... Damn nice, dude. The Warhammer inspiration, hmm... ? A dreadnaught ? Especially the banner reminds me of a chaos dreaddie...

03 March 2003, 08:36 PM
I like very much but something wrong in the upper of foot. It seems not right to me. Just my POV. ;)

Texturing is amazing. :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 09:05 PM
damn ur awwsome :buttrock:
i see there is still a long way to go for me though, just started doing work in 3d. So maybe someday i can post such cool images too.

Keep up the goodwork

03 March 2003, 09:20 PM
Very nice modelling...

I'm curious though, about how many hours you put into this model? It's quite detailed, indeed.

I also love the post effects like the blizzard. Great work! :applause:

03 March 2003, 09:39 PM
Nice to see someone doing some superb work with Cinema 4d XL. ;)

03 March 2003, 10:07 PM
cheers guys :beer:

I'm not entirely sure on hours, I started it last weeked while ill with something, I worked on it on and off for about 4 days I think

Lemme guess, PPC and Gauss Rifle? :D
This over the top SCHW33T!
If you showed this to day1studios their leadartist would have a heart attack. :drool:

Nice work. Just beautifull, I would love to rig that thing, if you dont mind. I use Maya. :buttrock: :airguitar

03 March 2003, 04:41 AM
that's crazy man

03 March 2003, 05:33 AM
go c4d .............. amazing work...... very well done :thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 06:03 AM
I dig the scene squid! However, for the sake of the model itself I think you should post it without the snow to show the hardcore detailing you did.

there aren't any apart from the logo and the alpha of the flag, the rest is procedural shaders :)

Good Work!
Well Done:thumbsup:

great work man:thumbsup:

02 February 2005, 05:02 PM
but this gets it done. Not since seeing the space opera entries have i been so enigmatic about a piece. This is great. I love it, it almost feels gritty, like the rough post-apocalypse theme Matrix had going with the robot, except its more of a dictatorship kind of aire. Love the dim lights in the background, really makes it look/feel/ and scream snowstorm. Can't you just see the scene now, dozens of robots surrounding a city, protecting a ruthless leader they don't even respect. Great work. Wonderful stuff.
