First of all, no I did not start from scratch and it's a reconversion of the alien I show a few weeks ago here...

He was tall, thin , good looking and above all alien...and as I don't have a lot of time...hop !!!!!!

I prefer to make it clear nobody bother me with that !!!:D :D

But I will try to make him a companion for the same price if i can...
:p :p

so U can see ze old one here :

and here's the new WIP guy !!!!!

NB : and yes I love Captain Harlock (Albator) !!!!!!

I tried to fix the problem of your post... didnt work :(
usually you have to use the img button to see your picts on the post, but some sites doent allow that..

01 January 2002, 04:52 AM
It looks like a mix of Albator and a Mont Calamarian (Star Wars)
Really funny, I like it ! I also like the insigna, it looks like Reebok :D

heheh! wow, cool character :)


01 January 2002, 06:07 AM
THANX !!!! :D

01 January 2002, 10:12 AM
he look very cool :)
i like the head
well of course i love captain harlock anyway ;)
by the way, why don't you give him a pet like a "bird" on the shoulder like our capitain ;)
and just.. maybe the foot are not big enough
(a oui pi ptet just les bras sont un poil trop rigide pis c tout ;))

01 January 2002, 10:18 AM
That's an excellent looking character you've got there, but I think you should change the very glossy black into something less glossy and perhaps lighter, make it velvet or sommin :D
Get rid of the mask as well, he'll have much more character if one can see his normal head.

other than that, nothing wrong with it. great piece.

01 January 2002, 10:18 AM
what do you mean by "trop rigide" plizzz ?!?!?

for the pet it can be fun, I could put a black pikachu with a blind/scars eye one his shoulder :)))) (for a perfect conversion of the original cast :D )

I want first to make him a companion of arm...who will be exactly his opposite...


01 January 2002, 10:26 AM
yes I was thinking of maybe changing its texture...

For the moment it's a captain harlock style with a darth vader rendering.
maybe I should have kept something more like the original... I'll see what I can or want or have time to do... :D

i will try less shyny and less reflective...(arfg...when I just find where the Raytrace antialiasing was...)

Maybe I will try to paint a texture also... (in the style of your icone one)

anyway even if the challenge finish on the 1st of february I can continue with him, and then make a serie with this character, and a line of toys, and in 20 years make a clip for Daft Punk with him and his companion, and.........what what...already time to wake up


01 January 2002, 10:33 AM
The design of the head was inspired by an alien in a comic book called Womok... which I think was inspired by a certain character of a certain "trilogy*2" called...hum...Admiral Ackbar....

(This post "to give back to Caesar what's owned by Caesar")*

* suis pas sur de la traduction la :D

01 January 2002, 11:08 PM
Here's a new update of my "Captain Dulock" (from a perfect world far far away). :D

Some details added, and almost all your comments (well..snifff... your 2 comments) taken in consideration...

the 2 new renderings are here :

I think he will be finish tomorrow, then I start quickly his companion...(think you will love him too)


01 January 2002, 11:13 PM

01 January 2002, 06:37 AM

01 January 2002, 11:54 PM
Here's a first version of the pirate acolyte...

you can't really see it here but he's quite small compare to his boss... He will have a big axe and a flag and certainly a chained slave Pikachu...

The pirate he's still here...

more soon

01 January 2002, 01:38 AM
Incredible style and personality, I love this character bigtime, one thing tho fix the knee at the bends, as it ruins an awesome model....

This is one of my favs so far, nicely done

what app do you use?

01 January 2002, 02:14 AM
wow .! thats impressing . i'm in 3d art for 6 months with 3dmax and ur work are totally awsome ..would like to know how much time you pass on them?? and the modelling technique??(program?) seems like nurbs to me.... anyway ... those questions are a lsot of time .. but i realise ...
yen beaucoup dentre vous qui parle francais semblerait ..... ets vous quebecois???? travaillez vous dans lindustrie du graphisme par ordinateur????? si oui , jaimerais bien entrez en contact avec vous .... je termine mon secondaire et jaimerais bein avoir des conseils........ merci davance ...
gotta try to enter this contest was about to start a model like taht anyway.......

01 January 2002, 07:48 AM
ThanX a lot !!!

For lildragon :
-tho fix the knee at the bends :

do you talk about the tall one ?!? his right knee ?!? if it is so yep it's bad, it shouldn't bend like this when you see the neutral pose. My rotational point is not where it should be....I want to fix that since the will be done !!!!

-what app do you use?

max 4 (with the meshtools)

For element 412 :

well the original alien (not the pirate one, the army one) took me a big Week End to model I think, a few weeks ago !!!! then several evenings to convert him to the Pascal challenge. It's not easy to say, because I never calculate... sometimes I'm very very fast, and sometimes much much less :( depends on my motivation, my mood and my girlfriend !!

No it's not nurbs, it's poly modeling, face by face !!!!

I don't think nurbs under max are very efficient !!! (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

* big Week End means part of the day and big part of the night !!! :eek:

ets vous quebecois????

No I'm not one of those damn Caribous eaters !!!! :D

travaillez vous dans lindustrie du graphisme par ordinateur?????

yes, I work in a video games can send me an E-mail if you have problemo...

01 January 2002, 09:33 AM
ok that's cool then, get some Joint Deformers in there and it should be fine :)

any plans for animation?

01 January 2002, 09:38 AM
well in fact when I made the first version of the alien it was for a little short purpose (2mn) ...(with Pikachu)

but I don't think I will do it... maybe I will do some animation test...If i do I will post them


01 January 2002, 09:41 AM

01 January 2002, 11:04 AM

01 January 2002, 02:30 PM

(yes camera mapping !!! and what ?!? you don't think I'm going to do a texture for his back especially for the eyes of Pascal !!!!

01 January 2002, 03:44 PM
