View Full Version : Character-Mangalore (5th element)

06 June 2003, 06:04 PM
Heyas all :wavey:, some of you might remember him from the wip section here`s the final version , it`s something like a bust :beer:

06 June 2003, 06:43 PM
How can you do that,man? I could always recognize your works because of your style but I cant get bored of it......Great :applause:

06 June 2003, 06:55 PM
Very nice texturing.

06 June 2003, 07:26 PM
hey great work man, I love that film and especially the Mangalores.

Awsome texturing, but the eyes looks a bit dull, but as I search for a reference pic, I see the eyes are like you made them :thumbsup: ;)

06 June 2003, 10:01 PM
Definitly recognise him... fifth element?

06 June 2003, 10:04 PM
That is really looking great. I would pull in the chin a bit more. Make the lips a bit fuller, more puffy looking. Add a few more wrinkles along the upper forehead and you are good to go. Let's see the textures now :D

BTW...5th element rocks hard! Luc Besson is a god among men ;)

06 June 2003, 10:10 PM
Astonishing like aways dude!

Your models rocks all the way!
Great skills and texturing... i Would go to more reflexes on the eyes thought!!!


06 June 2003, 10:10 PM
Really great!

Love the movie!

Love your work!

Keep it up!! :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 10:13 PM
Hey Can! You're the man!

Your texturering skills are unbelievable

06 June 2003, 10:21 PM
Thank you for the feedback guys :beer: , I use photoshop for texturing , and Lightwave for modelling and rendering.

06 June 2003, 10:29 PM
Only complaint I have is that the chin is a bit too clean on your model. The reference pic has a huge bum chin.

06 June 2003, 10:33 PM
çok güzel tebrikler

06 June 2003, 10:39 PM
wow.. love this work! welldone!:applause:

06 June 2003, 10:40 PM
Awsome texturing on the clothes/armor/whatever :beer:
great modelling too..! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 11:01 PM
Amazing work! LW users are in for a treat with this one!:applause:

06 June 2003, 11:05 PM
awesome modelling,
but maybe too shaven, clean and symmetric,

06 June 2003, 11:23 PM
My only crit is that the details, creases and whatnot, dont seem to be "deep" enough. In the referense pic that Dreamwave posted, they seem to be more "deep" and give more of a realistic impression.

oh yeah and also that metal collar thing, it should be more dirty.

I think you should model a complete Mangalore! If for nothingelse than to have an excuse to watch 5th Element all day long ;)

Great piece, nice texture and beautiful mesh detailing, v cool. :beer:

Looks good, good job.

I need a excuse to watch 5th Element all day long....whoops, maybe thats why people think I am weird when I do that.:p :hmm: :shrug:

06 June 2003, 01:25 AM
love the shape, and I think if the expression was more photorealistic, the character would be more alive.

06 June 2003, 02:36 AM
Definetly 5th Element!

Couple comments: - Try to model subtle diferences with the left and right side of the head. Looks too mirrored. Perhaps lower one of the ears slightly, adjust the eyes or mouth too. This may make him more believable since no one's face is symetrical.

Keep it up!

06 June 2003, 03:43 AM
Awesome work and great textures. :beer:

06 June 2003, 04:28 AM
Really nice job ounce again!

Always clean modeling and awesome textures!

Keep it coming!

:beer: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 07:00 AM
Really great model !!! :drool:

06 June 2003, 07:25 AM
Wow, very nice.. :thumbsup:

But if you take a look at his jaw you can see that is is to smooth compare with the original character.

06 June 2003, 07:26 AM
By the way!

I really love the textures of his armour like clothing! cool :cool:

06 June 2003, 08:36 AM

Great work, great movie!

Some critics though... ;)

It's a great work, but I feel this mangalor is a SHE and not a warrior... oh, cutie! :D

I think the skin is too shiny, not that bumpy as we seen in the movie. And one more important (to me, at least): I think the colour should be more grayish. See?

Keep it up!

06 June 2003, 08:49 AM
nice work. I like your geo alot. Very clean.

06 June 2003, 09:28 AM
Its a great looking model, but you should model the eyebrows a bit more i.e. making the bumps on them more defined, its the same with the lips. and darken the eyes alot more you'll get better results(not that the resultS are not good now) . other than that... its great progress.

06 June 2003, 09:30 AM
great work!

06 June 2003, 09:31 AM
fantastic job !!

06 June 2003, 10:29 AM
Her zamanki gibi gayet başarılı. belki surat biraz daha bump kaldırabilir.


:applause: ;)

06 June 2003, 11:19 AM
good modeling,texturing and lighting mindwork :thumbsup:

the head would need more wrinkles/irregularities though

excellent character choice,I love these guys :)

drop by

06 June 2003, 12:58 PM

I like the model, its very cute! But the specular levels seem a bit high for my taste!

06 June 2003, 03:17 PM
nice model and rendering, but on 5th element conceptual part how do these things inhaleoxygen or whatever they would intake nostrils, gills, etc

just curious hehe

06 June 2003, 04:15 PM
Harika model.
kusur bulmak neyime. hayran hayran bakmakla yetiniyorum.

eline saglik.

06 June 2003, 04:34 PM
simply beautiful... your work is always inspiring. keep us posted

06 June 2003, 05:29 PM
cool model, and very well executed, but..

the eyes seem to have a bumpmap assigned to them, right in front of the lens. perhaps it's just the render, but it does look funny I think.

Apart from that, great!

06 June 2003, 05:49 PM
Thank you for the feedback guys, how is this version?

06 June 2003, 07:38 PM
Yeah !! Better ! I like it very much, You, Sir, know Your gradients damn well, the metall looks photorealistic and cool !!
Now, go and comp that into a photography or still from the movie.
Just put him into a group of mangalores in the still and let us see hwo well it fits with his mates :D !

06 June 2003, 06:00 AM
amaizing!!! wow
i dont remeber if they have any kind of nose? or not?
the texture is great i think a little pink human style,
when i grow up i want to be a manga:eek: :thumbsup:

not after the messenger he's not.


06 June 2003, 07:35 AM
I always admired your work Silmarillion ...very personal style and recognizable!! :thumbsup: ...Very beautiful work. It has that volumeon it that many of us don't give in our work!

Are u planning make his all body figure too?


06 June 2003, 01:39 PM
Nice. I agree with one of the previous posters though, and would suggest a little more modeled details and rely less on the bump maps round the eye brows and lips. Alternatively a displacement map could do the trick.


06 June 2003, 03:03 PM
This is hot... I remember these creatures from "The Fifth Element" but my only suggestion would be to make the skin more wrinkled... Otherwise its a great job... Cheers to you... I hope to be this good some day.

I'm slowly getting better... :p
