11 November 2008, 06:16 PM (

This my first concept for over view of my composition.

11 November 2008, 06:56 PM
I think your POV must be from down to up ... this way the shot will be more impressive

11 November 2008, 12:04 AM
Hey, may I ask which have you used for the pre-visualization?

Thanks a lot!


11 November 2008, 03:46 PM

I like the high angle looking down, makes the people insignificant.

11 November 2008, 04:40 AM
Good! I liked the lighting test. the horse looks really bulky and imposing.
I think I like the vertical composition better.

11 November 2008, 08:31 AM (

This my quick sketch is Helen of Troy.she's one of my character in the scenes.Her costume's I design tunic than tune into steampunk style.I will detail in 3d progress again.

11 November 2008, 05:55 PM (

this close up.

11 November 2008, 06:06 PM
nice progress so far :-)
maybe itīs your intention, but I think the horse looks a bit wide

11 November 2008, 06:15 PM
Creoative:I agree with u.Thanks:applause:

11 November 2008, 06:31 PM
Hey, nice work so far, great detailing. I think it would be pretty cool if you made more of the door/hatch. Perhaps it could be a roller shutter door as it would be pretty heavy in metal, so you could have chain pulleys and someone inside operating it. Maybe even a chain operated lift down to the floor? If you light the inside of the door with a slightly orange light then it would make a nice little focus point.. Just a thought! :)

11 November 2008, 07:15 PM
Good start ! Wish you good luck for your entry !
I will follow your next steps ... looks good so far.

11 November 2008, 07:27 PM
looking good so far - nice idea and very ambitious! All the best :)

11 November 2008, 03:45 AM
M477:Thank for your suggest it very helpful.I like a roller shutter door idea.
Grin3d:Thank for your following man.
Intervain:Thanks guy.

thanks every for comming.If you have any thing pls let me know.

and have fun with your project!!!


11 November 2008, 05:55 AM
This looks like a fun concept for you mate!!

I agree with ingostudio that the viewpoint needs to be a POV from the you a lot more drama!

Good start mate...good luck!

11 November 2008, 02:05 PM
very nice concept, love the Troy story so I bet this will be marvelous at the end! Will the city be original Troy, or will you make it more into the steampunk date? I'd go for the second, but thats just me :) have fun and good luck!

11 November 2008, 03:15 PM
NinjaA55N:I have plan to combine the original troy and steam together.It will look like Greek architect and materiel is bronze wood and steam engine.That what I think for now.May be in that time I will change my mine If got the better idea.
balfs21:I will change a bit when I create some character.

and thanks all for every comment and critic that help so much.:beer:

11 November 2008, 03:18 PM (

I change pov a bit the camera is go down and look up.and will change again when i have some character.

11 November 2008, 03:46 PM
Excellent modelling. Looking forward to seeing this progress

11 November 2008, 05:45 PM (

anyway c&c always welcome.

11 November 2008, 10:04 PM
Looking good, love the legs. Trojan horse is very popular in this contest (same here), what is fun is all the different approach to the same subject.

11 November 2008, 05:31 PM (

some update this version I change proportion for the body because last version leg is little bit short and chest is wider.critics and comment always welcome.tomorrow I will start uv and texture.

11 November 2008, 08:21 PM (

This my first character.She is Helen of will coming c&c always welcome.

11 November 2008, 12:43 AM
Somehow the horse's color reminds me to a Gundam :D which is cool btw.
Nice work so far, what did you use for a render kub?

11 November 2008, 07:28 PM (

some update for Helen.I start blocking out for proportion and detail some part will show in final.

feel free to comment guy.

this time for sleep.Zzz Zzz

11 November 2008, 06:31 AM (

some update of Helen.I hope to Finnish her today.

11 November 2008, 08:46 AM
I think her legs is a bit big, compare to the upper part.
Maybe it is because her pants but I have a feeling that her boot is too big.
Scaling the upper part or scald down her boot might help.
Just my thought :)
Anyway good job, keep it up.
