Starting the human body...

03-30-2008, 08:05 PM (

refining the body-armour... I will made a soft-plastic looking armour, When I will choose the final texturing I will decide colours etc...

03-31-2008, 06:13 PM (

refining the "soft-armour"... test colours to see wich parts will have diferents colors.

03-31-2008, 06:24 PM
Very cool! I've decided to concentrate on 2d but sometimes when I see 3d grafics I get really tempted... well maybe one day :)

Can't wait to see more...

03-31-2008, 06:56 PM
I think the final image "if I have time to finish" will be composed by 2d and 3D... as I don´t believe to made a post animation or something like that later...

03-31-2008, 07:21 PM
i like the design of his body suit .. one crit tho about the colors .. maybe you could make his suit darker something like dark grey with some small lights in them while keeping the same design .. you are not finshed tho maybe you have greater plans .. keep it up :thumbsup:

03-31-2008, 07:27 PM
Very good 3D !
I like this design style!..
I am eager to see more !!
Good luck!...

Refining the armour... colors are not the final ones... stay tuned ;)

04-01-2008, 09:20 PM (

A light test to see how look like details with a basic ilumination.

04-02-2008, 05:58 PM (

04-02-2008, 08:32 PM (

2º concept for the other pilot-character, it will be some kind of lion-specie...

04-03-2008, 06:36 AM
Wow! Luv your work, outstanding! Great selection for the concept, and it's already very eye-catching! Great style, great skill! :D

04-07-2008, 08:04 AM
Hey this is really nice work. Your suit design is excellent. I really like your concept for the illustration too - it has a wonderful 'classic sci fi' feel about it

04-07-2008, 01:07 PM
thanks, Hope to start today the entire body + armour...

04-10-2008, 09:33 AM (

starting the lyon-specie body, I will not refine the chest as you can see, later I will add a armour on top.. of the chest.

04-17-2008, 06:49 PM (

scene pose, I will have to adjust the weights etc of the skinning... just to have a look to what look like the final image..

04-17-2008, 07:01 PM
Looks great already! Can't wait to see the final version :) Love your style!


04-18-2008, 06:10 AM
Hi Stéphane!!

I didn't see your entry before... damn I love it! Really nice style on the characters and of course the modeling is perfect! Keep the good work, I'm sure it will be a awesome final image!

Good luck! :bounce:

04-18-2008, 06:58 AM
luv the modelling...

04-18-2008, 11:58 AM
Great modeling, i love the style of your characters, they work very well together.

04-18-2008, 02:15 PM
First time here!...what a beautiful modeling style! im amazed!
It is both cartoony and realistic. beautiful...truly beautiful.
now im curious about the final composite...because the character poses are so well a very promising image.

04-18-2008, 06:13 PM (

adding details to the ship... armchair etc

04-18-2008, 06:25 PM

Great modelling skills. Love the harmony of the setup. You could make even more dramatic angle on this one I think. Play a little with different angles.

04-18-2008, 06:56 PM
Hey Stéphane, really nice concept, great characters and awesome models, cool!! :thumbsup: , love the design used, great!! Awesome work! and looking forward for more updates !! Cheers!! :D

04-18-2008, 07:15 PM
Hey there,

Really nice entry characters framing and all.
My only minor crit is maybe the lion's hips and bum sitting position seems a little awkward on camera imho. It's just a little twist and turn that could make all the difference?
He doesn't seem to be sitting very naturally.

Bonne Chance.

04-19-2008, 10:00 AM
thanks guys... I will upload a updated detailed scene later... I made a fast render with a unique color to see whats are the details who work bad or better...

Spin99: you´re right I will change the pose of the legs, because the actual lyon-legs doesn´t match very well.. but as I say before its not the final scene... stay tunned :thumbsup:

04-19-2008, 05:11 PM (

more details added... next, fix the poses... add some more props and work textures and backround.

04-21-2008, 11:42 AM
Cool comme d'hab ! :bowdown::cry:

04-21-2008, 08:36 PM (

I will adjust colors later, for the moment I only add a unique-tone to see how work the image, i will work the final image in photoshop. next step will be the backround...

04-21-2008, 09:07 PM
Very nice. You have a very fun style. Great job on the ship very sleak.

04-23-2008, 08:31 AM (

Starting the backround, I will put a saturn-style planet, I render the alfa channel as I will place this planet on a layer and play with it in photoshop...

04-24-2008, 07:38 AM (

The ship that I will put in the backround, this is the last 3d modeling, next is composing all elements in photoshop... and paint over the image, perhaps some furs on the lyon...

04-25-2008, 08:25 AM (

Composing layers in photoshop... now I will add clouds, light effects, the pad that wear the lyon will show a hologram, etc... I don´t know yet if I will let the image at full color or add a global tone... next image will be the "final image".

04-25-2008, 09:53 AM
Great work, Stephane!! Love the models of the characters and the ship. Great expression on the human's face.




04-28-2008, 04:59 PM (

My final image... Good luck to everybody.. cheers

04-28-2008, 05:59 PM
awesome modeling as usual , why wip image have color ,but your final are in monochrome?

04-28-2008, 06:07 PM
Awesome work, Stephane! But somehow I'm puzzled why it's monochromatic? Maybe you should try some different versions? But maybe you have your reasons.

Congratulations, mate!


04-28-2008, 06:28 PM
Congratulations on your final image, i realy enjoyed your inspiring thread. Good luck.

04-28-2008, 07:25 PM
Congratulations on finishing up the piece! It is really neat! Really daring choice to make it monochromatic, yet very visually pleasant and stands out from other works. The Best of luck! :)

04-29-2008, 06:48 AM
The monocromatic match the first idea I have, as my concept... I made some test and finally decide to let the image with that tone... I also try in black&white... but choose this tone. cheers to eveybody... :thumbsup:

04-29-2008, 01:28 PM
congratulations dude! :bounce: very well done! :p i especially love the ship design! rockin man! :buttrock: .. plus, looks like you beat me to the monochromatic look :D
even i'm trying to get a single colour tone that will be less saturated :D
amazing work!
all the best dude! :thumbsup:

04-29-2008, 03:49 PM
Congrats on the final image! Love the modeling and the render. Interesting colors on the final image; it almost looks like a sepia type effect. Well done, and props on originality with the color palette.

05-02-2008, 11:16 AM (

final image.. adjusting tones... the last one.

05-03-2008, 06:05 PM
Very nice models :) Especially the lion looks fabulous. The monochromatic look sure is a surprising move. I think I would have gone with a fully colored version.

Good luck with it :)

05-07-2008, 03:26 PM
wow amazing entry mate congrats :beer:
