finished draw;

a head close up

02 February 2008, 03:55 PM
Dang that is one sexy beast. No crits from here, man just keep it up.

02 February 2008, 04:16 PM
really nice concept alex, but i think he´s kinda of too skinny right now, you could play more with proportions and give some kickass looking for him..

godd lucky mate

02 February 2008, 04:21 PM
Love the details on him, maybe a bit too much on the details though. Can't wait to see more and also in 3d, goodluck! Cheers

02 February 2008, 04:28 PM
Great job, man. Impressive amount of details, as expected. But I got to admit I'd expect a more musculous big silhouetted guy from you. By now I don't hitnk he looks so powerful, it's too skinny as Rafael said.

Keep it up man, I know you're gonna to kick a lot asses with your entry.

02 February 2008, 05:03 PM
awesome alex!!

be carefull about the weapons!
"Your character must wield a single artifact or a pair of similar artifacts (two scimitars, two daggers etc)."

im watching :)

take care!


02 February 2008, 05:12 PM
StacyOgie-thank you!

rart-i agree with you ,i am working on anothers versions

Loukor=thank you! please ,wait the news updates

jramauri-yes , you're right ,here's some changes ,on the character look too.

here's some updates , i still working on some concepts more;

some face ideas;

02 February 2008, 06:00 PM
that's Alex Oliver brand right there. Not even need to read your name.

Looking great, what can I say :shrug: happy to be on your team. Hope you can pull off the textures as well as you will do the modeling.

02 February 2008, 06:01 PM
I liked the character.May be if u can try out more on variations for the weapon.That would really enhance ur concept.Just a suggestion.
Best of luck :thumbsup: .Lets destroy the enemies.

would follow ur thread.

02 February 2008, 06:04 PM
Wow, awesome job .. this just got better :D.

02 February 2008, 07:46 PM
grassetti-hi buddy! yes i will see it better ,thank you!

DDS-thank you!

nandlaskar-thank you! yes i will try anothers

Loukor-thank you!

02 February 2008, 07:55 PM
F*cking yes, now I can see a potential winner here. Much better man, and wow, pretty fast new concept! :eek:

The face from right looks better to me. And I agree about the weapon, a sword is too common. To me, something like Darth Maul's double blade, made in your drawing style would give a fantastic weapon for this big boy.

Keep it up.

02 February 2008, 09:12 PM
very cool, monstro! wanna see the new ones! keep them comming. may talk tomorrow.

02 February 2008, 10:02 PM
jramauri-thanks buddy! yes i do it!

one upsdate with Photoshop work;

02 February 2008, 10:04 PM
Hmm. Think I just wet myself. They all look really great man, nothing meaningful to add, just really top notch work.


02 February 2008, 10:51 PM
Great stuff, I love your work.

02 February 2008, 11:33 PM
AWESOME ! :buttrock:

02 February 2008, 12:39 AM
Fantastic, Master Alex!!!

Let's rock!!!

02 February 2008, 01:37 AM
GavinG-thank you!

inneractive-thank you!

grassetti-thank you buddy!

superpauloitalo-thank you buddy!

here 's another image showing the character using a helmet.just a idea.

02 February 2008, 02:01 AM
freakin awesome mate,
but just pulling a leg, i would give him a two handed cimitar sword, for a more orcish look, but your call man!

awesome as aways

02 February 2008, 03:12 AM
Damn... thats great.

02 February 2008, 05:06 AM
Looking badass! Looking forward to the 3D version:)


02 February 2008, 05:24 AM
How my friend Albert Feliu said, "take cover! brazilians are coming..."


02 February 2008, 08:47 AM
"take cover! brazilians are coming..."


Yeah, Samba modelling!

Gotta love that. Swinging concept.

02 February 2008, 09:02 AM
your work is always inspiring to me Alex :thumbsup: ... am a big fan of yours on ZBrushCentral .. and as usual incredible work :applause:

02 February 2008, 01:17 PM
I prefer the version that we can see his face, it is very organic and interesting and cool to be hidden under the helm. But the helm is good idea to complete his armor... Maybe if he could carry the helm on his right hand it would be more interesting.

02 February 2008, 04:09 PM
rart-great idea! i will see what i will change ,thanks!

Airflow-thank you!

Cyborgguineapig-thank you! ,but i still looking for my character

grassetti-aahahahhahaha ,thank you!

nightwoodwolf-thank you!!

superpauloitalo-thank you Paulo! but i still changing the character

here's another idea. i will try choice one today;

02 February 2008, 04:21 PM
really nice Alex! all concepts are awesome!

im waiting for 3D updates :D

cheers! :thumbsup:

02 February 2008, 05:30 PM
thanks Grassetti!!
here the same image with photoshop work
and a face closeup;

02 February 2008, 06:04 PM
Very impressive!
I wanna see more!! hehe

02 February 2008, 06:18 PM
really dig his face now! Go for it!

02 February 2008, 02:11 AM
Character Name: Enki
Race: Sucubbus
Class: Warlord
Artifact Weapon : Sword
Artifact Power : Fire /Lava

well , now i choice my character direction , here's my initial sketchs to my final idea.
im posting just some sketchs of the process;
and soon i will post a final image of the character;

02 February 2008, 02:24 AM
i like this new direction, great concepts

02 February 2008, 03:17 AM
same here,,,, very cool concept... really dig the design so far..... though....considering all the curve and all the shape designs you have so far, how r u gonna pull it of with the 9000 tri limitation. Just a reminder. =)

02 February 2008, 03:24 AM
Yap, the new direction looks great too, even if the first one was osome nice kick ass warlord!
Love the face on the third image, left above!Great work!Wanna see more!Cheers!

02 February 2008, 04:30 AM
Awesome as ever, Alex. The sketches are really nice! Can't wait to see the digital sculpture that is coming! Good Luck...

02 February 2008, 02:59 PM
Pale-Face-thank you!

damdischink-about the 9000 tri i dont know yet,but i will see.thank you!

OKMER-thank you!!

xissburg-thank you!

02 February 2008, 03:08 PM
wow thats great Alex , very diferent of all those others u did!

like it a lot!
im watching!

02 February 2008, 03:10 PM
yes! that´s one! amazing!
congratulations man!

02 February 2008, 03:16 PM
Alex your drawing skills always blow my mind. I like this concept more then the others.

02 February 2008, 03:16 PM
This last one looks like it will be a beast of burden while modeling. But it looks so badass you HAVE to do it lol. Yup thats an order!! lol.

02 February 2008, 06:01 PM
OMG!!! Fantastic, Alex!!! Very original and impressive concepts. I like that red and white concept.

Go go go!!!

02 February 2008, 06:07 PM
The form is great, especially from the side. The armor looks amazing. It adds a scary elegance to the creature.

keep it up!

02 February 2008, 06:24 PM

02 February 2008, 06:29 PM
Fantastic. Such a different style. I don't know where you find the time to do some many drawings. Just knowing you are out there noodling away on this makes me want to run and hide. I can not wait to see some of this in 3d. I really like the tendrally flesh look.

02 February 2008, 07:11 PM
grassetti-thank you Rapha

Danilow-thank you buddy!

bradjames-thank you ,yes now i know what i want do

DigitalBlaspheme-sure! i will do it! soon i will begin the base mesh,just need fix some thing on the concept

superpauloitalo-thank you my friend!

etd382-thank you!

inneractive-thank you!

jbrophy-thank you! i will post the 3d soon!

here's one sketch more;

02 February 2008, 10:25 PM
Hey oliveira

Very cool idea. You can never have enough screaming skulls in my book.

02 February 2008, 12:40 AM
Fantastic man, really nice work...

02 February 2008, 01:04 AM
I'm sitting with wide open mouth.. someone help me :D

02 February 2008, 01:29 AM
this makes me want to work harder on my own thread. I thought for sure this was 2D entry. Good luck sculpting. Cant wait to see how it comes out.

02 February 2008, 02:18 AM
Thats way creepy! Good stuff! A small detail i thought of was that the stretchy stuff is covering the cheast in a very even way, would be even nicer to see some shapes that stand out between the skulls and the stomache, or maybe calm it down a tiny bit. I would love to see a development of this..

Good luck!


02 February 2008, 02:29 AM
awesome alex, just impressive man!
this could kick some asses man... but i dont know, I think i would go for that more orcish head that you´ve done first, think its more like a "warrior" head than this one, but I´m so looking foward to see this one onto a 3d model!
good lucky mate!

02 February 2008, 02:31 AM
Hi Alex! all the concepts are awesome, but I like the last more than the other because of the details and the terrifying looking
good luck man


02 February 2008, 02:35 AM

I like the concept sketches! ! ! In particular head!~:twisted:

02 February 2008, 03:40 AM
Hail Master!
Very nice this new armor concept, slimmer, now looks more a front warrior than a general. This is the kind of profile I was waiting to see.
Continua nessa linha que tá massa Monstro!

02 February 2008, 03:57 AM
That bit with the skulls is out of control! Will be totally amazing in 3d!

02 February 2008, 05:43 AM

02 February 2008, 05:59 AM

Great work man, simplesmente animal! Really cool concepts man. I'll be watching, thats for sure!
Mais um "peso pesado" que está aí pra dar trabalho na competição!

02 February 2008, 03:51 PM
BloodTaster-thank you!

here's a new update ,just some sketchs more and in a couple days i will begin the mesh;

02 February 2008, 05:08 PM
Man, can't wait to see this translated to your sculpture style. It will be hard to beat. Keep it up! :thumbsup:

02 February 2008, 05:28 PM
Lovely (if that's the right word) concepts so far. I can't tell from your latest post how much the helm is open in the front, but I hope you will consider opening it wider than in some of the earlier posts. It would be less functional to do so, but it would be really nice to see all the fleshy creepiness of his neck and face.
Anyhow, great stuff so far!

02 February 2008, 11:52 PM
jramauri-thank you! i willpost the 3d soon

walrus- i agree with you, i will post the 3d version soon

03 March 2008, 12:11 AM
awesome Alex! im crazy to see it in 3D .. :twisted:

03 March 2008, 12:23 AM
Love your pencil work. Anxious to see this progress.


03 March 2008, 12:39 AM
Great work that new concept is amazing, it has a really dark demonic feel to it. I think it would look good with some flames of type of green smoke/gas coming from cracks or holes in the plate armour.

03 March 2008, 01:02 AM
very impresive work dude

03 March 2008, 07:25 AM
Great stuff cant wait too see more.

03 March 2008, 03:13 PM
your designs make me think of how htey'll lend well to normalmap details :) have to work on that myself! thanks for inspiration

03 March 2008, 08:07 PM

03 March 2008, 03:00 PM
Very nice concept work.

Amazing figure without the helmet on.

03 March 2008, 03:32 PM
Awesome details man. I´m waiting to see in 3d !!! fudidão !

03 March 2008, 04:22 AM
Hey Alex! Great concepts so far. Lots of variations. I guess i told you somewhere else that i like the skull guy... Keep on man!

03 March 2008, 12:14 PM
I draw before make the sculpture, but are just conceptual designs, but I had changed my inicial Idea and inicials draw.

03 March 2008, 12:18 PM
Sorry man, wrong polst

03 March 2008, 01:58 PM
3d version is gonna look awesome:eek:. Beautifull job.
All the best:thumbsup:

03 March 2008, 08:54 AM

i still working on the base low , here's a preview,still very rough yet ;

03 March 2008, 04:48 PM
Nice. I´ll keep watching this.

03 March 2008, 04:58 PM
no probs oliveira. Base mesh is looking good so far. Just a small comment about it....

...this time IMHO you are having too many elongated polys everywhere, mostly around the shoulder pads and tight pads, but anyways I'm sure your machine can handle an extra subdivision level because of those. Keep going man!

03 March 2008, 04:58 PM
And finally the real fun begins! I was very anxious to see the 3d model and there goes, his first showing on the stage. Keep it up, Alex, I'm sure you're gonna to kick thousands of asses.

03 March 2008, 11:54 PM
Its really nice to see that you’ve start modeling. Your concept looks very good. I'm waiting for Zbrush part :).

03 March 2008, 12:14 AM
It has been interesting watching your concept evolve. It's good to see it progress into 3d. I can't wait to see the finished model. I'm interested in the face; couldn't really get a good look at it in the last renders.

Great job man. Keep up the excellent work.

03 March 2008, 07:43 AM
hey alex!

great to see some 3d on this one.
looking forward to your sculpt.


03 March 2008, 04:16 PM
Great! Let's see what some zbrush can do for this mesh! XD

03 March 2008, 04:47 PM
Pretty cool. It reminds me of an amped up Sauron. Its goint to look great.

03 March 2008, 07:47 PM
Looking kick ass alex! I can't wait to see the final pose!

03 March 2008, 01:38 PM
great concept, interesting character :thumbsup: can`t wait to see sculpting!

03 March 2008, 03:23 PM
Nice work Oliver, i've been a big fan of your work, haven't seen you do any game art before though, mostly drawing and high res traditional/digital sculpting, interesting designs, looking forward to the finished result.

03 March 2008, 03:24 AM
Hi Alex !!! very nice work as usual !!!:applause:
I can't wait to see the Zbrush modeling!!!:bounce:

here's a new update ;

03 March 2008, 06:06 PM
very nice! It really works :)

03 March 2008, 06:41 PM
"Wow" is just what I have to say o.O But I haven't understood his head yet, so I'm waiting for new ups, to see how it really looks. Keep it up.

03 March 2008, 11:00 AM
wow awesome! but I second about the head... I think it's seemingly off scale with the armour.. gives a bit of a child in grownups shoes kind of impression.. not to say that skull should be bigger but perhaps the head needs more of an overal head-like figure (maybe more skullparts to give him eyes where the helmet would suggest they'd be situated?) or such :)

03 March 2008, 12:17 PM
wow, prety nice stuff!

03 March 2008, 12:25 PM
OMG! It's getting tottally cool! Keep the fantastic work, Alex.

03 March 2008, 11:22 AM
really good to see one of my favourite sculptors here! awesome concept, im sure it will look fantastic :applause:!
