Hi Guys, here i attach some concept update

Simjoy : hi there, thanks dude, im gonna post the story now :)

Pooyag : all the credits for concepting goes to my friend kw3k :)

Ragnarok: War of the gods (temporary title)

the idea here was to make the gods are only mortal and they are just human in powersuit, so they could die as well
(rough story)
the story will goes like all the gods are dead, and they have put into a cryogenic tube, only Odin and Tyr are the last one, and they are waiting for the final battle with odin's nemesis (fenrir), and then fenrir will come bashing the front door, and finally they will be facing each other, with Tyr help finally odin going face to face with fenrir

well thats the rough story for now, i'll be making the complete version later when the story boards done,

comments and critics are most welcome guys

12 December 2008, 07:08 AM
Really nice work, Odins head looks great.
Im currently doing our odins head, so that should be up in a couple of days.
Great progress guys.

12 December 2008, 09:05 PM
Outstanding concepts and mind blowing modeling.:eek: Cant wait to see how those mighty gods will kick each other asses. :buttrock:

12 December 2008, 09:23 PM
Great modeling ;)
btw, the hands seems slightly too big, not sure if that was intentional
Keep it up

12 December 2008, 05:48 PM
Wow... cool...
I like those char..., especially the odin, looks wise and natural
but i found something weird on tyr's abdomen muscle, the chest, and scapula, its not wrong, but doesnt look natural, if u want to tweak it a bit, it would be perfect... :thumbsup:

anyway, i really love the design... cant wait to watch the clip... :)

12 December 2008, 02:13 PM
- shehanRN : Hi dude, thanks, we using SSS shader from mental ray

- Airflow : Hi man, nice to know that we have same character to work on, maybe we can exchange information about odin :)

- ValenUA : thanks man, yeah they gonna face fenrir, the big bad wolf, and kick his ass hahahahaha

- Pooyag : yeah, i dont know what da silva thinking, he even doesnt need the hand, since it will be covered in glove and mechanic hand, hahaha

- Wych : hi man, its nice to see you drop by, anyway i still wish that you could join us as an FX artist :D, hahahaha, thanks for the input man, (alwin tuh ada masukan)

So nice to see you guys talented pro, working together, cant wait to see what kind of thing that u can show to us !! =)

So far from the WIP u show, If i may put some comment, the odin look great, and to make it look better and convinving u can put some "beef" and underlying structure in the chests and other muscles...:D

anyway, good luck friends !! ;)

12 December 2008, 08:27 AM (

Fantastic work on modeling and shading.
It's just the hand it's kinda strange and very big - did you do that intentionally?

12 December 2008, 07:16 PM
fgdf : hi dude, the hand is not intentionally big, it suppose to be mechanical arm, maybe my friend made it to be a guide to make the mechanical arm, so he didn't need any hand, but yeah, soon we gonna replace that hand into the mechanical arm

12 December 2008, 07:25 PM

Im really liking the texture work u guys got going on so far. Question, are u guys using zbrush and max? I ask because i always use maya but for this project i switched to max and was wondering about the diplacement/ normal extraction from zbrush to max ( We're working on Thor vs. Argus btw) Thanks.

12 December 2008, 02:56 PM
hi sburto20, yes we use zbrush and max, for this one we didnt use displacement map, coz it will be too heavy for rendering, so we just use normal map

for the normal map i think you could use the zmapper that already integrated in zbrush or maybe you could try xnormal

and for the skin you could try mojette tutorial for sss skin shader with mental ray, its at, i'm sorry that i cant give you the link for now, i think zbrush central is down for now, but you should have no problem on finding the tutorial, good luck mate
