This image was done for a book on taking an idea from Concept to fully realized 3D model... BUT the book deal fell through, so I get to show it where I want...

Here it is-

Wow man, really amazing work! It has a sort of grim look. Was it for a fantasy book? THe book should be published for it's cover alone!

Auch, it gives me a real AD&D feeling. Really dangerous monster, like the tarrasque (anyone?). Keep posting, you'll get an CG award for sure if u keep delevering art of this level!

04-26-2003, 03:38 PM
That's really awesome....it's going to get plugged for sure:thumbsup: :love:

04-26-2003, 03:52 PM
:eek: :drool: , damn this is sweet. can you tell us how you did the skin and wins, realy sweet. i was planning on doing a dragon, the type of skin is diffrent but would help me knowing how you did it :D .

Tarrasque???? hell no, tarrasque are more stupid then the stupides animal on this planet. so i dont think he would have clothes. and tarrasque are realy realy realy realy tall. could be a tarrasque if it were some kind of mage expirement that went bad :D

04-26-2003, 06:42 PM
:eek: Well, this one's going in the gallery and front page for sure. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You never cease to amaze me with your designs and techniques. I'm going back to your website now ... your stuff is better than coffee in the morning. :D

el paso
04-26-2003, 07:27 PM
wow this is amazing, I really like it, the faded tattoo (or whatever it is, is wicked)

I'd have to disagree with buddy who wrote the first thread, with his wings outstreched he'd have to lean forward a bit for counterbalance.

very very good

04-26-2003, 07:29 PM
when is that tutorial coming?

04-26-2003, 07:37 PM
Impressive, but i dont really like the "trasnparent tattoos" or whatever they are. They just seem to stand out of the picture. Maybeby if it was almost black, but still.

Anywayz, good job :wip:

very good, your web site to:thumbsup:

04-26-2003, 11:10 PM
Not really much to be said, but very nice work.

04-26-2003, 11:13 PM

With no doubt you have great skills... your web site is great and this image is astonishing

But this tatoo is not fiting the whole draw as well.....

See... is part of it's body, it's on his skin...

It MUST receive the light AND must be affected by the shadows....
The wrinckles of you character does not generate shadows in the tatoo...
And does not "deform", so as to fit the skins folds....

Fix this little detail, and you'll have a greater pic

Best regards

great detail love the wings :D great job :buttrock:

04-27-2003, 12:17 AM
Very impressive.. y donīt like too much the foots, y believe it will be more great with foots like the style of his hands.. but itīs personal :arteest:

Amazing eye catching art ....!! :buttrock:

04-27-2003, 01:33 AM
Incredible work, I thought it was 3D at first. The only thing I would comment on is he's leaning forward too much and it makes him look off balance, but other than that it's splendid man. :thumbsup:

fantastik Stuff Stalecracker,
got side tracked at your site for quite a while too

:airguitar :xtreme: :airguitar

04-27-2003, 01:55 PM
Outstanding character design! :eek:
Especially the wings; this is inspiring. :buttrock:

04-27-2003, 03:51 PM
Incredible design, really a great character, with some background, he could really be a good hero... he has the feeling...
Do you mind if i try to model it? I'm a student, so i don't want to make any commercial use (in fact, i know i maybe could model it, but i couldn't texture it... :p)
I can let you aware of the project if you're interested...
If you got some sketches of the guy, in any position, i would really be interested...
thx a lot, and continue the good work, your site is also so a PLEASURE to be seen :)


04-27-2003, 06:34 PM
Hehe... Nothing new to add, all I can say is what has already been mentioned, he seems outta balance.

04-27-2003, 08:00 PM
Excelent craftsmanship.
Its nice to see digital art at this level.
It helps give the rest of us a little push to work even harder.

Keep it up
