11 November 2008, 02:36 PM
Thanks for dropping by Monsit. I surely wasn't expecting you stepping in my post.
So long Monsit. First time I joint cgchallenge 3 years ago when I was a student, that was the master and servant (you were the second price). Those many things changed these 3 years. It's always good to see the old timers. Brings good memory back. Best wishes and good luck this time.

11 November 2008, 10:20 PM
glad to see you on the challenge :D best of luck :)

11 November 2008, 10:33 AM
Hey Dude how are you Man:). Nice to see you in this challenge. All the best.

Kali,is a Hindu goddess associated with death and destruction. The name Kali

means "black", but has by folk etymology come to mean "force of time (kala)".

Despite her negative connotations, she is today considered the goddess of time

and change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest

incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some influence. More complex

Tantric beliefs sometimes extend her role so far as to be the "ultimate reality"

or Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatarini (literally "redeemer of the

universe"). Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kali as a

benevolent mother goddess.

thank you everyone for visited my thread,
here is my story,
story is about mad sciencetist who want to
destroy the mankind , so he build the Massive scale ultimate killing steam-engine robot in form of Kali , goddess of destruction which will feared everybody who see her .........but...

something goes wrong , the controller are broke !!! due to the low cost material , no one know what will happen.....

heheh sorry for broken eng

11 November 2008, 05:37 PM
great concept dude! :p it's nice to see many cool artists take on hindu mythology ... my respects to you :)

11 November 2008, 05:52 PM
I love the theoretical problem here though...

....if he wants to destroy mankind, why is he worried if it breaks and goes on a killing rampage? Surely that's what it was built for, after all? Unless he's worried about it killing himself?

11 November 2008, 06:47 PM
Nice work :) But I agree with paperclip. If it is supposed to destroy mankind, then the only problem would be if it breaks down?

11 November 2008, 07:02 PM
Wow, this short looks so impressive and the concept is really cool.
Can't wait to see more kub.

11 November 2008, 07:14 PM
Heh, I don't think he's worried that it broke...i think the controller broke on him and whoops...someone just unleashed uncontrolled destruction on the world :P

Nice concept Monsit, hope to see it more fleshed out soon.

11 November 2008, 07:30 PM
nwiz25 : hi thanks man! wait for your update too!
paperclip ,MartinNielsen : good point! haha , at first I want another charactor relate to main Kali , so I decided to add some kind of bad guy in old jap cartoon , old school bad guy that want to rule the world by himself , so i add him with a bit humor , but I don't sure if there are any orther option? open for suggestion :thumbsup:

ToykoF : thank you kub , glad to see you join the challenge
ace4016 : Hi ace4016 snoopy!!! very glad to see you and thank you for visit

11 November 2008, 07:45 PM
You could have the bad guy fighting with a good guy to gain control of the remote, then it breaks by accident...uh oh....!

But at the same time, isn't that sort of like coming up with a new myth/legend and not reeeeally based on an old one? Either way, I think it'd be fun. :D

Also, I'm really curious as to if you actually look like your avatar or not. :p

11 November 2008, 06:01 AM
nice concept buddy. remember me from spectacualr challenge. Its been long now.Best of luck to u :thumbsup:

11 November 2008, 10:32 AM
I always like seeing your work... you are very good. I have no doubt this will turn out to be great once again

11 November 2008, 03:32 PM
Kali is gonna eat him! I like the composition of your latest sketch, can't wait to see the progress of this image.

11 November 2008, 04:53 PM
this is definitely a page to watch, can't wait to see how it turns out

11 November 2008, 05:37 PM
paperclip : thank you, theresa, haha , actually I'm a bit younger than in my avatar !:applause:
nandlaskar : hi , I remember you , but you change user? glad to see you again!
littleac : thank you very much! :beer:
SNoWs : haha yes , thanks for visited man!
Rivenis : thank you ,sir!

actually , now I'm feel a bit strange , like I never before and I can't explain so I decided to change my concept , and pick another myth or legend, but can't find the right one for me at this time, hope to get the new one soon!:sad:

11 November 2008, 03:30 AM
well meet again krub pee monsitj. ^__^

This s my first time on cg challenge.
just fun!

11 November 2008, 03:52 AM
Looks great. I like Kali as the choice for subject.

11 November 2008, 07:42 AM
so I decided to add some kind of bad guy in old jap cartoon , old school bad guy that want to rule the world by himself , so i add him with a bit humor

You mean Dr. Willy? lol
Too bad that you have to change the concept, I think it still interesting for me.
Hope you will find a new concept soon kub, good luck :D

11 November 2008, 08:05 AM (

I think I got my new story,
Fujin and Raijin

The gods of wind (Fujin) and thunder (Raijin) loom ominously atop a summit of

clouds. Fujin carries the winds in a bag across his shoulders, much like the

Greek Aeolus. Raijin is surrounded by a circle of drums which he is beating with

pestles held in either hand to summon thunder.

11 November 2008, 08:07 AM (

ok, I'm think I got my new theme a bit late , so here is overall composition , another step is to make both fujin and raijin look like old steam engine!

11 November 2008, 09:12 AM
Beautiful concept, monsit, I like it very much....but...please don't hate me...what are they doing? What's the story? It's a beautiful image but I feel it might need a bit more storytelling?

....I'm sorry....

11 November 2008, 09:59 AM
paperclip : hellooo theresa! glad for your visited my thread ! yeah , the story behind it is base on the myth of this 2 gods, actually they will appear together , sometime they fight, sometime they won't , what if wind fight with thunder?? maybe storm or rain ......

so my next step is to translate my idea into one still picture , which is ..... hard ,but I'll try

11 November 2008, 06:24 PM (

start to sketch in zbrush , raijin , god of thunder , I want to make it look like bronze statue with some shell and mechanic in some part ,

12 December 2008, 04:30 AM
Very nice concept and nice start with Z-brushing Dude:)

12 December 2008, 06:59 AM

12 December 2008, 05:09 PM

This is looking really spectacular even without textures. I'm sure the finish will be astounding!

12 December 2008, 07:47 AM
Looks Awesome Dude. Cool update:thumbsup:

12 December 2008, 08:16 AM (

update , Raijin and his drum , almost done ,

12 December 2008, 09:56 AM
There really are some extraordinary 3D entries. I wouldn't want to have to choose!

Wonderful work. I really like the suggestion of swirling steam. There is already a great presence to the pose, but maybe the weight could be focused more around the stomach. Just a very small suggestion.

12 December 2008, 10:19 AM
Very original... totally you !

12 December 2008, 05:26 PM
Hello ^^/

I like your drum part very much but could he really hit it? or he gonna use special way to active his thunder?? (Nothing much... I just wonna know ; ;)

anyway you work very fast and great as always. Are you going to render all shader in 3D or paint over it in other 2D program?? It seem to have a lot of part.

anyway good luck kub.

12 December 2008, 09:11 AM
looking very cool as usual :applause: keep going

12 December 2008, 05:42 PM (

Update , Fujin god of wind , base on original design he carry wind bag on his back , so I adapt design into balloon-like bag and use some raijin part , comments are welcome

12 December 2008, 06:37 PM
mate u know I like the mechanism on the hands and legs looks so Wonderful but I guess that legs from down doesn`t look as good .......just my opinion :blush: .......keep going mate :arteest:

12 December 2008, 07:55 PM
dude .. all i can say is ..

my friends and i marvel at your modeling skills .. ( as always! ) .. patiently waiting to see the "what's next!"
all the best dude! :thumbsup:

12 December 2008, 07:57 AM
Great character work. You have perfectly aligned your STEAMPUNK mechanisms! :thumbsup:

12 December 2008, 11:24 PM
I like so much the model of -Raijin and his drum-
the bottom of the stomach for -Fujin god of wind- seems slightly flat to me, but perhaps is the shape of the curve plane (around it) that involve it that is a bit straight. far this is the best fantastic Modeling to me here!
waiting to see more! :buttrock:

12 December 2008, 06:01 PM (

ok here is update ,, put it all together , overall layout base on my first concept sketch , I paint some light , shadow and backdrop are still temp image , but I intend to mix 3dmodel with matte paint ,

01 January 2009, 10:42 PM
Hi monsijt. colors seems good, not very saturated, but I think that's what you(re looking for. The sens of size of the characters is excellent.
You've got a part of your overlay that is not blurred, it seems strange for me.

01 January 2009, 04:42 PM (

Fujin and Raijin

The war in the far east kingdom has begin! in the world of steam technology
and magic of eastern knowledge , they use advance steam technology to summon
their god from legend into real world battles!!

The gods of wind -green(Fujin) and thunder-red (Raijin) loom ominously atop a summit of
clouds. Fujin carries the winds in a bag across his shoulders .
Raijin is surrounded by a circle of drums which he is beating with
pestles held in either hand to summon thunder.

01 January 2009, 04:51 PM

hope , my upload works , I'm not sure if I'm upload correctly or not

01 January 2009, 04:28 AM
Congratulations Dude. Great job:). I like that vapor fx on fugin. I think I'm late to suggest anything. Some rust could be added on fugin's and raigin's forearms metal part. But it looks good as it is now.

Overall very nice job. Very Original :thumbsup:

01 January 2009, 08:13 AM
