I'm also in the process of finishing several characters I've started. I'm going to use this thread as a WIP thread and post my progress as I go:

and for the GameArtisans contest:

So there is my current goal. Wish me luck!

Wish I could offer some useful crit. It all looks great. :) Of the new work, the first one, the goth-jester type guy has to be my favorite.

Can't wait to see the progress on the new characters...specifically on seeing how the turtle-guy shapes up.

Nice collection of work. Loving the texture work. Some skilled unwrapping

Great work as usual Bobo.

I especially like that first character. The witchy one for the comp is looking great as well. Good luck :thumbsup:

Love your work, I want to be doing the same you do eventually if not, better:P

Nah love your models in Titan Quest, played upto end of niightmare difficulty then it seemed to repeat it self a little too much.

Your style is reconisble.

Great stuff!! You're clinging on those pixel perfected textures! :)

Hey buddy! Great work you're showing here! I really dig the unwrap on that Naga- tough character to fill a sheet with while keeping the seams to a minimum...

Are the creatures from Depths of Peril your concept?

01 January 2008, 06:07 AM
those texture sheets are really well done..what size do you paint them at?
top shelf work...I'll be keeping an eye on the turtles progress:thumbsup:

Love your jester and viking ( i wan to see that one finished :P )

really nice work on the textures.... as usual

Awesome characters, I have a question (open to anyone) reguarding that viking of yours. :)

I notice you have the head of his hammer as a seperate element (not "welded" with verts) to the handle mesh, from my experience (very limited) this makes using stencil shadows in game engines not work properly.

Is there a way to make your models like this, saving geometry, but still use stencil shadows in a game engine? or would you just not use stencil shadows for models like this? ... or are stencil shadows old news?

Superb work. Really interesting unwrap technique for the head there, never seen it done like that before!

01 January 2008, 07:31 PM
Love it all, great to see such high quality diffuse textures:)

01 January 2008, 06:53 PM
great job as usual.
it is pleasure to my eyes to see such great job every time you update site...

01 January 2008, 02:30 PM
your textures are amazing

01 January 2008, 10:14 PM
Excellent post! The models are amazing, like them all.

Can you explain the process you use, or have you ever done any tutorial about it? Or what soft you use, just give a few words, thanks.

I was wondering whether you use modelling packages, like Zbrush or Mudbox, through the process or if you have enough with photoshop or painter?

*(edit): I'm visiting your web, and Yes ther`s some tutorials, I'll look at them later. Thanks in advance.

Very nice work. I've always liked the hand painted texture approach, it adds a great feel to the game. I don't know what it is about the turtle but he's amazing. Great stuff!

That one is great, too, perfect model for the DS I would say.
Awesome, I can't but bow down ! You're really, really good and an inspiration to me.
