Hi everyone! I'm new here. Nice to see all of u.
Here is my idea
It's may not look like but it really is a turtle. Yeah, i came up with an idea about a creature that has an invincible power,a real bone breaker with powerful massive attacks and even 1-hit-KOs. He really doesn't need agility or even accuracy.Besides, i don't want it to turn out like a war machine which only know about fighting, so it must be a intelligent,experienced and noble one. Finally, it turns out to be a giant turtle. Yeah, i really love him. A slow, heavy and strong turtle with hard shell on it back, good either in offense and defense. His magical artifact is a heavy cannon gun, which can be used like a big hammer when out of ammo.
Ok,it's all for today. I'm still working on the armor and the gun, hope it'll be done soon. I'm a newbie so i need a lot of ur help. Thank u for reading, see u next few days. Sorry for my bad English!

Keep going!!

What should i do to get more comments from all of u???
Do u think the armors are good enough???If not then tell me so i can fix it immediately!!!

04 April 2009, 02:26 PM
cool design! I really like the armor so far the only thing would suggest is to maybe add something to his right arm maybe a gauntlet, but its just a suggestion. Awesome work so far though! Keep it up!:thumbsup:

04 April 2009, 02:34 PM
:) gud job guy, but u need to reform his arms, hope that will make it looks better, gud luck to u :)

04 April 2009, 02:38 PM
The turtle and his pet (or partner):
A toad!!! Close up to the pet:
Ahahaha! Does he look funny?
The small wings of the toad make them look like Thor (thunder god again), haha!
More comments, Plzzzzz!!

04 April 2009, 02:48 PM

04 April 2009, 02:51 PM

04 April 2009, 02:59 PM
Thank u very much!!!:beer:

04 April 2009, 03:27 PM
Randomize the weapon (I mean the drums).
Make them five various in size, thickness and proximity. Your character will be more interesting then.

Cutie little frog.
Leap ahead man. Good luck.

04 April 2009, 05:09 PM
oh! Love your idea so much!
Waiting for your next post!

Wassup man!, Hey, I really dig the design. That's really cool that you give those drum as a thunder maker.

The proportion are good. Still a bit out of proportion, around the arm.
I agree with other members with having an armor to his right arm to balance out with his left shoulder armor piece.

I would add more shape to him for details reason.

I really like the concept scketch of having 1 powerful drum instead of 5 weaker looking drum, but that might take away the nice silhouette on your currtent character.

Good luck to you man! I will check back later, let the Viet win this time,

04 April 2009, 01:45 AM
I decided to change the drum's style. Put a little Inca style to it:
Does it look like electrical Drums??? Do u think so?? I hope so! I need to fix the shoulder armor a little,put Inca style to it. Oh, time's running out!! :cry: Need to hurryyyyyyyy!!:argh: Still a lot of work to do!

04 April 2009, 04:39 PM

I don't even know how to save the picture in Zbrush, so i have to use Print Screen!! Can anyone help me? Teach me how to make picture from zbrush plz!! :love:
So it's also the first time i make low poly from the HP and bake the bump map!

very nice for your first zbrush! Time is running out! nhan len ban oi!

05 May 2009, 04:00 AM
It's will be finish soon. I hope it will be on time.

05 May 2009, 02:46 AM
I fixed the details on the turtle's body. I have used Zbrush more recently, so i think it better than the first one.
The deadline moved to May 18th, so now i'm sure can finish it on time.
Try the low poly:
And finally, my new idea: The Toad can transform to mound mode:

05 May 2009, 03:39 AM
How many tris are you using? If you havent use all 10,000 tris, use it.

Use it on any shape that requires roundness. Some of your round shape doesnt look round enough.

05 May 2009, 03:15 AM
I used about 9000s, still have some to use. Thank u for yr advise. My skill is not good enough!! :banghead: Must work harder. I sure have learnt a lot from all u guy's advises. Thanks a lot. Great Dominance War!!

05 May 2009, 02:30 AM
kinda impressive
but it'll be much cooler if your character don't have the weird crack on his right sholder :D

05 May 2009, 09:08 AM
where's the updates?? :bounce: it's almost time!

05 May 2009, 01:06 PM
just add more color map , bump map , spec map and BAANG ! :D
@tubui : your art is crazy awesome cool . the girl looks lumpy , doesn't she ?

05 May 2009, 04:51 PM
Thanks God!!! I finished it on time.I didn't sleep for the last 2 days. But it's worth to do that. Now i have something to proud of. Here's my art, my very first completed art after one year i've come to the 3D world.
The IV War is ended, thank u dominance war and everyone who care about me. Hope to see u again soon. If not,then we will meet again in the next year's War.

Vote & gud luck :)

05 May 2009, 04:03 AM
your turtle definitely has potential, it could be a very powerful piece. I really like how the shape of the drums and the his heavy upper body vs to his little legs.

Your poly flows could have use better. Your lighting is really weak. I could go on but you will hate me a bunch. Please dont hate me, I'm just sharing my opinion.

All in all, I really dig your concept. Your high poly are really good considering that's your first high poly. And this is your 1st year knowing 3d? Wow, u have some potential there...... Anyways, good luck mate!
