03 March 2009, 09:43 AM
hi..hope can finish this one...P..
I combine seahorse and some other sea creatures to create the DW version of poseidon....
just initial sketch...hope have more clear image of him soon...

goodluck !!! ^^

03 March 2009, 03:43 AM

a bit clearer...^^

03 March 2009, 04:30 AM
Good start. Your reference study is very strong. try pulling more shape elements from that into your body design.

Keep it up (> ^_^)>

03 March 2009, 08:43 AM
thanks teadrinker....but I am changing to other stuck with the poseidon...p

change character...p...guild wars as reference+cowboy+native tribe+shaman king...

03 March 2009, 03:02 PM
figure out how his outfit...

03 March 2009, 09:03 AM
modeled out the base mesh...and zbrush a little....
hopefully have enough poly in the end..still got a little creature to build...p

03 March 2009, 09:13 AM
good looking character you have here. imo you should use the exact face (with prominent forehead) in the first sketch of this character.


03 March 2009, 09:45 AM
Hey,keep workin on poseidon it's nice start,it's more unique than the new guy,new one reminds me of GW Asura characters. :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 09:55 AM
I agree with nellement; this guy looks a lot like those characters from Guild Wars. I think you're going to have to do something to set it apart if you want to continue along this design path.

03 March 2009, 10:07 AM
cool model and concept ya got there man.. if you are worried about polycount.. remember these guy's faces don't ever need to deform unless you are planing an expression. seems like you could cut a ton out of his head :)

03 March 2009, 11:41 AM
thanks for the replies and critiques..^^

ersinerturk - k..will try to add that feature more in the end....^^
nellement & Swizzle - ya...cause I use the Asuras' as reference...p
actually the Shaman is my first idea...but I decided
to go for Poseidon as it is more original..
but then right now,I found it might be too ambitious
for me as it has too many details from what I have in
the end(my zbrush is not good...)..maybe will use it for
DW V ??? ^^
kmanning - ohh..I see..what will the game artists do for the game
characters in the games ??do they model the face a
little???or just rely on normal maps??

change a that wont be so Asura'ish...P...
horn + something like the ears of the Vincent in 'Underworld'.

03 March 2009, 03:06 PM

a bit more z brush and the crossbow gun model...p

03 March 2009, 04:02 PM

the soul the shaman has...just a sketch...


03 March 2009, 05:01 PM
Ok man nice progress,about poseidon don't think it's to ambitious just try to challenge yourself guys from this forum will support you,but if this is the first idea you wanted thats fine go with it than. :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 05:05 PM
I also liked your first idea Poseidon. But this one is as good as Poseidon if you like it so much.
I think if you make him less muscular than now it's gonna be much more original than usual.
His props are going wonderfull as well. :thumbsup:

Good luck

nellement & APD-Jack : thanks..and poseidon it is...^^

back to poseidon...p

The Poseidon has not been awaken since a long long time...deep in the sea,rocks,shells,sea grass,sea creatures and all kind of stuff grow,hide,got stucked on him...
Today,war is coming.Poseidon has awake to help the norm friends...He cant get away with all the things on him..but he doesnt know that these 'parasite' will save his life later in the war.....


03 March 2009, 07:51 PM
Nice stuff you have here :) I like the modeling on the rabbit-guy.

03 March 2009, 04:50 AM
Martin Nielsen - thanks...but switch to poseidon from now on...:cry:

not sure with how the poseidon will just start zbrush...figure it out while working on it...^^

03 March 2009, 04:31 PM
block out everything first...P...

03 March 2009, 03:56 PM

sculpt a little bit more..^^

03 March 2009, 04:41 PM
that poseidon has some really interesting design,just think the hand armor is a lil too big ,I like the tail design really nice

03 March 2009, 04:43 PM
nellement : thanks...that is a lobster+seahorse tail....P..ya...change to a smaller and normal armor,to avoid confusing with the sea plants and creatures...^^

a bit more sculpt in zbrush..added a bubble to the poseidon,
with the bubble,poseidon is able to go beyond the sea....^^
but dont know can get the nice bubble reflection in the end....hope can...P

04 April 2009, 02:53 PM

added the back tail....^^

04 April 2009, 03:00 PM
Very nice stuff:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

keep it up:beer:

04 April 2009, 07:26 PM
Cool stuff! liked the face details.. i liked the idea of giving that fish face for his fingers instead of having the entire hand like fish and the tail concept is awesome! keep going.. waiting for updates

04 April 2009, 07:32 PM
Nice modelling. I like the one in #18 best, without so many of the powerups ;) I reckon if you made that torso a little less human that would do the trick. Still, nice work.

04 April 2009, 12:40 PM
Awesomely deigned and detailed model here! Love the fish hand.

My only crit is that the tail seems too small to power him around, also the human part of his torso looks a bit stiff.

I am also going for a marine look with my character, it's nice to get away from the typical goat horns and batwings look.

04 April 2009, 08:57 AM
thanks for the replies!!! ^^

Ataulfo - :beer:
namnocilis - you mean the fish hand in the concept??I think I am not going to use that d,switch to the fish in the rock,while another hand will be a normal one cause need to hold the weapon....p
BaronImpossible - yup..I took out the rock around the waist,less complex and I am worry bout the texture...P...good idea on the torso,I tweak a bit in the latest update...^^
primativ - I look seems like too small...but I think I will stick to that size,cause hte poseidon uses his arm a little to swim and I am going to use alpha for the tail,so..try not to make it to big....P

little update...took out the rock at the waist...p

04 April 2009, 05:19 PM
into the details of the rock and the arm...
still lots to do....P
the bottom part is where the rock breaks...hopefully can get the feeling of it in the end...^^

04 April 2009, 07:48 PM

work on the weapon a bit....^^

04 April 2009, 05:07 PM

work on the weapon somemore...slow progress...P
change a bit design..but the tail part will bend later...^^

by the way..anyone knows where can get retopology written lesson??
I found a retopology video,but it doesnt explain how to add division,
some part of my models dont have enough division....P
thanks for help.^^

04 April 2009, 06:16 PM

04 April 2009, 06:52 PM
Ataulfo - thanks...your robot is cool^^
