View Full Version : DWIII - 3D - Anuxinamoon - Artifact Weapon

02 February 2008, 11:21 PM
In a jungle far to the south, five high summoners partake in their last mortal task. Their world is like a flickering candle in the ravaging storm of the intergalactic war, they know that is their last attempt at grasping a foothold on this war aand pushing it back into their favor.
Standing in their positions they weather five days and five nights in deep concentration. Atop a rocky rise; wind, rain, hail and hot sticky sun test their endurance. At last on the dawn of the 6th day, the ground trembles violently under the virgin rays of the morning; the summoners take a last inhale of breath, and welcome eternity.

Latest WIP:


Hey there! This will be my first dominance war and I'm excited and intimidated at the same time.
My participant in this war is Artifact Weapon. Constructed from the very earth itself it is a last line of defense against the invading armies of the machines. Fused with the artifact power of Earth, he is a monolith of rock, soil and bramble. Imbedded with the natural loathing of all things mechanical, he smote’s his enemies down with brute strength and the power of the earth mother, dismissing the once earth bound metal ores as betrayers and will stop at nothing to destroy them.
Powered by the spirits of the 5 summoners, they are locked away in special crystals on his body, controlling his movements with their powers. Perhaps if you could somehow climb on him and destroy the crystals you might destroy the weapon?

He will be some kind of Minotaur looking thing, made from rocks and plants and soil. I will get some concepts done today with my idea. I'm very excited ^^

Good luck to all, and may CGsociety triumph this time!

Okies I just got home and have plopped down some rough silohette forms. The ones bordered in green are the ones I like. I dont really want to go with the centaur guy cause of the polys but I like his form, so I may have to rethink my poly stratagey ><

Nice concept, but it is little difficult rightnow to understand what U have in your mind regarding the character from the recent rough silohette forms:) But I guess this is the intial stage. All the best Dude:thumbsup: and waiting to see Minotaur ready for WAR:bounce:

madshooter: Thanks man. I'm trying to design something that wont break the budget but its so hard, so if I have a silohette I can cut back to it should be okay. Sorry they dont look like much so I have cleaned up one of the ones I liked ><

Well here is a cleaner version. Its not working for me to be honest. I need something more earthy I think and less made from ruins =/

EDIT: Well after a quick sketch I came up with something more along the lines I'm after. I'm going to have to work it more though.

I like this idea a lot. I think right now its looking a bit to close to shadow of the colossus, especially in the face, and overall armor designs.

Keep it up though, looking forward to seeing the iterations of this. :thumbsup:

Ahhh excellent! I'm trying to go for a SotC Art style. Thanks <3

Here is my schedule I hope to hit. I have 1 week in germany so its made my process a bit tight in some areas, but hopefully I can pull it off with little sleep and lots of tea :D

Okay here is my zsphere base I did at lunch. Tonight I will shape it some more in zbrush then take it into max and fix it up.

Matcap is from Erklaerbar (

02 February 2008, 01:27 PM
Well I pushed the shape around and finally came up with this. I think he needs to be bulkier :D

02 February 2008, 01:38 PM
Okay minotaur is shaping up:) looks cool:thumbsup:

02 February 2008, 01:00 PM
Thanks Xarxys and madshooter <3

Small update and running a bit behind. No excuses! D: I never miss deadlines so this is pretty annoying for me.

I tweaked it some more in zbrush them imported into max for retoppo. I'm hopeing to spend around 4k on the body and 3 k on the rest, ( bramble trees rocks and particles. )
Will juggle it around depending on how it progresess.
