Never heard of the real statue. It has my name in it :)
Well it starts to look like the statue itself, so keep modelling.
Are you going to use the same enviroment?

I'm looking forward to it

This statue is beautiful and with a lot of details.. will be a good project :)

12 December 2007, 07:39 PM
Thanks for your replys!

Found the statue with google maps :), if I have time, I'll model the surrounding buildings also.

12 December 2007, 08:52 PM
worked a bit with Peter and the environment, don't get any nightmares with the topology :D

12 December 2007, 11:19 PM
Dear God this is going smoothly... I still dont have my figure worked out :p

Very nice work!

12 December 2007, 07:34 PM
Some updates. Loads of stuff to do..

12 December 2007, 11:20 PM
shaping up very well!

Face topology looks ok , but you might want to consider leaving a gap between the corner of the mouth and the strip that goes around the nose and under the chin.

Looking forward to more from this.

12 December 2007, 08:16 PM
Thanks stripe.
It doesn't look a bit like Peter yet :D

12 December 2007, 09:49 AM
Maybe not, but it's still a great model :p
But try maybe to make a mor pointy nose and bring the hear more to the front.
I dont know if on the statue he has a mustash?

But really, I'm impressed.

12 December 2007, 10:55 AM
Maybe his forehead is a little bit too bulged ?

12 December 2007, 07:07 PM
Good points killay, groutcho.

12 December 2007, 09:58 PM
looks much better :p

I'm really looking forward to your texturing :p

12 December 2007, 08:18 AM
Yeah the little mustache adds much for the "nobility" of the man ! :scream:

12 December 2007, 09:23 PM
some updates..

12 December 2007, 11:08 PM
This will be a great model, can't wait to see it finished :)

12 December 2007, 09:09 PM
Next I'll add placeholders for the rest of the objects. I think I'm 10-20% finished now :P

12 December 2007, 07:52 AM
its looking fantastic already! Can't wait to see what u come up with in terms of detail...

12 December 2007, 08:43 AM
Six weeks before deadline it's already beautiful :thumbsup: What will it be the day before the deadline ? God only knows...

12 December 2007, 07:22 AM
groutcho, DDS :D

The railing is now at 90cm and the red figure is a 180cm tall man.

The main ship is slowly taking form.. Still very rough.

Next up: refining the details on the pedestal

12 December 2007, 08:45 PM
Tweaking around..

12 December 2007, 09:24 PM
Friggin´ amazing dude! I see that my level of polish is going to have to be
of a high magnitude in order to win this competition.

12 December 2007, 08:34 PM
dandeboy: :)
Worked a bit on the breastplate, greaves, sabatons and the sword belt.

12 December 2007, 06:14 AM
I don't remember ever seeing this statue in my google searches for big statues.
I can't wait to see your work in Zbrush.... Or Mudbox..

Must be cold as *&$&A@ in Finland right about now right?

12 December 2007, 01:13 PM
danbedoy: I dont have Zbrush or mudbox nor a computer that could run them decently :P

Thanks to global warming it's about +5°C here..

01 January 2008, 03:37 PM

01 January 2008, 08:14 PM

01 January 2008, 11:33 AM
The model is really killing my computer..

01 January 2008, 06:14 PM
you might want to play a little with the perspective, it doesn't look as gigantic as it should be...
great modelling so far! keep it up!

01 January 2008, 11:36 PM
I agree with Readme2. Nice modeling overall. Good work, but yes experiment with angles.
