View Full Version : DWIV-3D-demon prince-???

03-20-2009, 01:07 AM


Lemme join our troups once again.

Might change my mind, but for now this is the only one of all my sketches that I feel it might be fun, and make me a better artis...err..warrior.

I'm going for something stylized, dunno what's in this sketch now, but I'll make sure these 2 guys will look quite extreme in 3D. Any thoughts?


03-20-2009, 05:06 AM
Yep it will be fun modeling this concept. Very nice:cool:
All the best:thumbsup:

03-20-2009, 05:16 AM
Very Cool! Can't Wait for more updates!

03-20-2009, 06:05 AM
Looks fun man, good luck with the poly count tho :rolleyes:

03-20-2009, 06:30 AM
Good to have you back this year. I'm sure you'll put together a real contender.

03-20-2009, 10:06 AM

03-22-2009, 01:16 AM
thanks for the encouragement chaps, It's much appreciated. Here this is my hangover translated into paper. Any thoughts? Do you prefer this or the other one? :)

03-22-2009, 01:38 AM
You show a good comedy style in both drawings :) But I think the first one has most potential.

03-22-2009, 05:59 PM
Hi Martin thanks for dropping by, I'm glad you like my comedy style. Here is another one.

03-22-2009, 07:04 PM
Hurray! DDS joins.. great to have you around, you are always a great inspiration, i am sure this time you will make a winning entry!
last concept sketch is awesome!
eager to see next update..

03-24-2009, 12:41 AM
thanks for the support :D new craze, I think this one has most potential plus it's quite a challenge.

Good bye to the relax...!!

03-24-2009, 12:55 AM
I like the bottom one allot. made me sit and think for a bit. good work.

03-24-2009, 01:03 AM
hei cool stuff!
make him use those human forms as baits for your demon, to twist the minds of the enemies and make them come closer, and closer...
make them sexy

03-24-2009, 04:02 AM
god damn Gomis!!

all the concepts looks awesome but i might stick to the first one.. thats badass.
neways..hope u enjoy the compitition.

03-25-2009, 12:06 AM
Sculpting this with my 3 year old laptop is going to be delightful...

03-26-2009, 06:08 PM
Seems like u spent more time on teh post process of the render rather then the base mesh :D lol.. kust jokin
can wait to c the sculpt gomis !
- Hell Raiser

03-27-2009, 03:35 PM
Seriously, can we make a game called "Find Albert"... you move from country to country like you're testing which toilets flush the best. Well? Just wanted to pop in and wish you luck bud! I'll keep an eye on your progress.

03-27-2009, 03:58 PM
Hi there

That should make a nice character! On all your concept, for sure it's the best one. Waiting to see next stage.

03-27-2009, 06:21 PM
Seems like u spent more time on teh post process of the render rather then the base mesh :D lol.. kust jokin

ha ha ha :)

Well, I hope something great in texturing also from you this time, coz we all know your modeling skills. :D

03-29-2009, 02:36 AM
hahaaha you guys are too nice!! Obviously the idea of rendering a base mesh is the stupidest so that's why I did it, don't hide your feelings my friends :D

Hell Raiser, I think you need a nap from your crazy freecrap world and get into War, like real men. We learnt a lot from old time civilizations and we love male-to-male action after a few weeks on the battlfield.

Firebert your comment made me crack up laughign man, seriously wtf I move quite a lot but wherever I go nobody likes me at all, which might be the reason why my ass is not confortable anywhere!

Charles cheers man, I'll see where it gets me :)

Deepam don't worry my man, texturing will be rushed and as bad as always!

here's some high quality human hand modeling for you chaps. I hope you don't mind some stiffness in the fingers, but they really animate better this way, it's just like you press a button and they pose automatically. But you need them to be as straight and uninteresting as possible, otherwise it won't work.

Now seriously, just a 2-3 hour blockout, much to change but I guess I need to update or this thread is going to rotten.

03-29-2009, 03:14 AM
Hey Albert,

Really great concept and sketches!! :D Like a lot the direction of your idea and that model looks really cool!! Good luck and cant wait to see more updates!! Cheers!! :beer:

03-31-2009, 09:27 PM
thanks ferx!!

I'm hesitating if going for a 2nd pass will benefit my normal map in any possible way...I'll leave it like that for now, and move on :)

03-31-2009, 11:51 PM
This is totally amazing, I like a lot your approach to this contest. Because almost everyone seems to be focusing on one character as the central element of the piece, but you are using lateral thinking here, and moving on to a (imo) more ambicious concept: presenting a fusion of characters.

My two cents here would be to keep that innovation going. Everyone can criticize the anatomy and what not (which is great btw), but I think that by dedicating even more time to polish little ideas would then lead to a great composition. For example, search for elements that would not come to mind at first when thinking about the "dark & evil" elements of the contest topic. Keep away from the typical and obvious approach that everyone else is having.

The crab is a great inclusion... Maybe some other element that ironically would represent life or hope? What about one of the devils is eating an apple, and another one is drinking from the holy grail?

Your work is really promising, can't wait to see the final result : )

04-01-2009, 08:20 PM
thanks, I have to say I agree with you on mostly everything. I'm not sure on making him more "meaningful" and more "spiritual" with the whole holy grail thing, but maybe a trumpet that throws toxic nukes while it plays the song of Aleluia?

04-01-2009, 08:51 PM
tried to make a differentiation between shell and flesh, but still lots to go!

04-01-2009, 09:34 PM
Is Demon Prince the final name or do you have some options for it?

04-01-2009, 09:58 PM
hi Luis, I would never choose a name before it's born!

04-01-2009, 11:07 PM
Hey Albert,

The models look really great!! The shell and flesh works really well, like the detailed level, awesome :D Great work and waiting for more updates! Cheers!! :beer:

04-02-2009, 03:37 AM
Sweet merciful awesome that's cool - you never cease to amaze DDS. I wish games had badies as badass this.

04-02-2009, 05:53 AM
Swwt sculpt Gomis. this is gonna be awesome once the whole thing is sculpted..
keep going white boy..
Best of MuF*&^in luck

04-02-2009, 08:15 AM
Nice start..Looks cool so far..

04-02-2009, 08:18 AM

04-02-2009, 07:19 PM

vikramvr, thx, I really like your avatar
farazmobin, yea no problem mr. policeman. Hope you're doing good and see you around
kitunen, hehe your concepts really amazed me!


04-03-2009, 06:44 AM
You really got something going on here!

Looking at the close-up image of the torso you posted.. it's a little too many details for my taste. However I must say I really like the direction you took on the area around the mouth and nose, looks really cool, wouldn't mind seeing more of that!


04-05-2009, 06:45 AM
amazingly diff stuff as usual...great sculpt albert..keep it up

04-05-2009, 10:26 AM
Amazing sculpting, I like the way you have really bought it to life with the flesh and shell. Awesome!

04-05-2009, 04:42 PM
Surely will keep and eye on it.

04-05-2009, 04:49 PM
Hey Albert! Great stuff here man :)
too bad i am not with cgtalk this year :S

Keep it up man! Im watching!


04-07-2009, 11:11 PM
wow the master, this is moving along swiftly. Watching this thread very close.

04-07-2009, 11:54 PM
oh yeah jummy!!

04-08-2009, 03:01 AM
its too much detailing.... awsome :bowdown:

04-08-2009, 04:44 AM
OMG :eek: this is total awesomeness! Maaan you really have one kickass concept going on here! :buttrock:

04-08-2009, 05:59 AM
nice detailing champ!!

04-08-2009, 10:01 PM
hakanpersson, yeah I've been told that about too much detail, a couple times. I'll definitely experiment with it more if time allows. I think im on the good track to give it a whirl :)

dreamsunlimited, always welcome to see some old time mate comments dude. I hope you're doing alright, I'm definitely gymming as always, still my arms are 1/2 as yours.

tonytrout, thanks that's what I'm looking for!!

grassetti, whatever man, if you can finish your entry it will be great, it's pure grasseti style

aesis412, thanks dude :)

StefanoDubay, er..what you said! thanks

lokendra, not too much man ;) I'm aiming for all of it in my normal map. thanks!

aeonseraph, cheers dude!! I'm lucky Im not on the 2D side though, your entry is freakin bad-ass

samarcbz, hey man thanks for keeping it normal and civilized :)

new update...I hope to finish it during this long-ass weekendd!!

04-08-2009, 10:13 PM
Your demon prince is looking like a very stylized nightmare. I absolutely love the madness of the creature with how all its different limbs join together. I'm really looking forward to how he look when finished.

Really inspiring work.

04-09-2009, 05:20 AM
Policeman like Crab!!...hmmmmm ,Policeman think you Awesome

04-09-2009, 05:38 AM
OMG :eek: this is just unreal... definately my favourite 3D entry at CGSociety!
Very epic character, and the level of detail is exactly how i like too :thumbsup:
And i'm glad i'm not on the 3D side because your entry is totally Kickass. :buttrock:
I will pray the gods of fortune and creativity to grant U the first place!!! :bowdown:

Can i ask what are your PC specs? I'm just wondering how powerful machine is needed to make piece of this level.

Waiting for more updates,
Cheers :beer:

04-09-2009, 06:02 AM
Dude..WTF???that is absolutely brilliant, and cool, and stunning.So, it's a giant crab with 4 demon guys around it? Where do you get these crazy ideas from???

04-09-2009, 06:07 AM
So powerful:thumbsup:

04-09-2009, 12:02 PM
dunno what to say :shrug::shrug::hmm:
i pray that when ur working a big block of brick fall on ur head and u become mental..
thats the only way others can win.. :P

04-10-2009, 06:34 PM
DDS- I knew u'd come hard and strong and with a bang..Great detailing dude.cant wait to see this through.

04-11-2009, 12:44 PM
nice to see you again enter the dominance war DDS. Best of luck

04-12-2009, 01:42 PM
Nice detailing Albert. looking relly awesome. What cant of mind you have ? i mean its amazing. Best of luck. :thumbsup:

04-12-2009, 02:08 PM

Very cool design ! I really like the big mouth at the top :)

I think this crab can move faster than a normal crab. I mean that "normal" crab have this legendary movement :p

04-12-2009, 02:26 PM
strong detailed and very original!

04-13-2009, 01:51 PM
Thank god for my late evening hand made hamburgers and my 5 spare PC's that Albert can do such good models :)

I finally thought I would register to CG art, his recently "former" colleague and now good friend and PC/Food sponsor :)

Hopefully in time Sensei Feliu will teach me to follow his path to polygon greatness.

All the best in the competition, I know you can make it. I won't comment on your work as you will be sitting next to me soon!

04-13-2009, 11:43 PM
Feel retarded repeating what other have already said so I normally don't but I'll break my rule because this calls for a exception.
Just incredible :buttrock:

04-13-2009, 11:56 PM
wow~very strong, I like it:thumbsup:

04-14-2009, 01:18 AM
Amazing design man :)

Good thing you use my computer to make all of it ;)

Love and good luck to you man. All the best for the competition.

04-14-2009, 03:56 AM
insane work going on here, blew me away with the latest image, I'm enjoying the process looking really good, keep going i can't wait to see more from you!!

04-14-2009, 04:08 AM
your latest image is looking badass! however, I think the two additional bodies on the sides is a bit too much, a little distracting to the rest of the design. It really takes away from the figure in front, he should stand on his own, just my opinion...

04-15-2009, 09:35 PM
yone, thanks man. Btw if I had the same nightmares, I would never go to sleep!
faraz, thanks buddy. Keep rocking policeman!
aeronseraph, cmon man! We need to fight your guy and mine ;) Hold on I'm missing the weapons yet!
vikram, just drink lots of absent, easy ;) thanks!
feline thanks!
samar, cmon man. Just join now, enough advantage for us puny mortals.
madhu, varun, manik thanks for coming by guys! miss ya.
alexy, haha yeah well hopefully now it makes more sense...he moves FORWARD.
ersinerturk, thanks :)
Yannisz, i owe ya man ^^ thanks for the hospitality!
live2contage, thanks. Sometimes when it's 10PM and you feel like watching a movie, seeing people hyped up helps me...a bit!
heatpaw, thanks man!
Yannisz, you again!
PeterBraeley, thanks man. Hopefully this wont disappoint.
ROBOTTANK, yeah I know what you mean. I've been thinking about that for a while. I can always plugg'em oout anytime. Let's see how this new modification settles in my head and I'll go from that point on. thanks for dropping by!
new updateeee yay!! (didn't do shit last weekend, partying in London is too fun :beer: plus when you are drunk in a 2 hour random bus at 4AM, ideas flow insanely!)

04-16-2009, 05:40 AM
So on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is more awesome something awesomely awesome and 10 is that thing that is [at a loss for words here]. This ranks a good some number that is more awesome than 10.

So yeah um wow :bowdown:*

*if there were some head explodes due to to much amazing I'd use that emoticon instead...

04-16-2009, 10:53 PM

thanks for the kind words!! *really* unexpected reaction ;)

04-17-2009, 03:47 PM
Great job!
Very interest concept and realy cool execution. keep it up!

04-17-2009, 07:31 PM
this is awesome!! best demon for me so far!! gr8 job!

04-17-2009, 10:37 PM
Yeep!!! :argh: That is an ugly bastard! It can only be the final boss in the game. Excellent design and execution :)

04-18-2009, 07:50 PM
I'll be missing for a couple days since I have to work on the lowpoly and that's boring as hell...

Anyways thanks again, CGS powa'!!

04-20-2009, 07:53 PM
It has been said before, but it will never be enough: incredibly amazing.

This is the best entry I've seen for this DW, it has the most crazy concept, and the execution is top notch.

You should do a video of the process for a tutorial-DVD, it would sell really well... At least I know I would pay for it, whatever the cost were, it would be cheap.

04-22-2009, 05:26 PM
This is stunning, absolutely incredible. I love your character, you already know that. :D Good luck mate. :beer:

04-22-2009, 05:39 PM
Awesome work! This guy is wicked! I can't wait to see him with textures!

04-30-2009, 06:41 PM
So, where's the update? : S T_T

This is my favorite entry of the whole contest... I've seen the finalists of other forums and I have to say that your concept is the one I found to be the best overall... Hope you don't drop on the competition because this amazing monster shouldn't be canned...


04-30-2009, 07:09 PM
I know, I totally suck lol. I think this weekend I'll finish the normal maps and post an update.

05-01-2009, 10:33 PM
insane work man, cant wait to see that finished! best demon in the comp so far!

05-06-2009, 12:03 AM
dmightyone thanks mate :)

boff, now I can sleep, everything came through!! Still lots to do but this came out of xnormal straight away. Had to go a bit old school on a couple parts but that's what I get. The small eyes are gonna have separate object pupils because there is no polycount for the spheres, and the 4 fingers are all welded...oh well, poor guy can't eat with chopsticks. He's got a better "utensil" though....and it's not a vibrator, mainly because I couldn't get it in a decent triangle count :D

Btw the 3 guys are having different weapons and they're done.

The remaining few polys will be used to break the symmetry in general, although the pose will already be totally asymmetrical.

Oh, and if I don't make it through...Thanks for the support everyone :beer:

05-06-2009, 12:07 AM
snapshot of UVs, reduced from 2048, overlayed on normal map.

05-06-2009, 12:58 AM
F#$*'in A DUDE That Rocks! Nice work

05-06-2009, 01:50 AM
Ohh My God, How can you do this...:rolleyes:...

Its A W E S O M E :bowdown::bowdown:

05-06-2009, 05:07 AM
WoW! That came out pretty good from xnormal, may be I should try this in my entry, as I am unable to use zmapper in my pc.

And about those fingers, I think they don't eat anything, only drink human blood with straws in their mouths. :wise:

05-06-2009, 02:50 PM
Normal map came out pretty crispy gomis...
nice stuff.. would be intresting to c teh color scheme on this...
Best of luck white boy.. :P

05-06-2009, 10:02 PM
Oh yes... Normal mapping at a very high level :thumbsup: A lot of symmetry is used, but it still looks great.

05-08-2009, 03:03 PM
Oh, and if I don't make it through...Thanks for the support everyone

OK, but I do hope you can make it 'cuz, as I said before, this is the best entry of the competition : )

Everyone is making the typical demon figure. Yours is going beyond that concept, presenting an interesting fusion of creatures in an awesome model.

Anyway, hope you can finish it, not because of this forum nor these "wars", but because more ppl should see innovation like this regarding the "demon" concept.

Regards, and good luck!

05-08-2009, 05:54 PM
Insane stuff...Great goin....Cant wait to see the color scheme on this one as Samar mentioned...

05-09-2009, 07:41 AM
Sir, the deets on this character is so sick! The retopo and normals are just beautiful. The one week should really bring this guy home. Looking forward to seeing the final :)

05-09-2009, 10:49 AM
wow....just wow.go on man like this and finish the competition......cheers.

05-14-2009, 04:59 PM
DDS for president :) can't wait to see it finished man. I hope you win!

come get your wacom pen from the reception. Its gathering dust.... there is so much you can do with lazy mouse

05-15-2009, 12:23 AM
thanks guys! Dropped quickly just to post an update to prove I'm not dead, but I really am very busy trying to have a normal life while trying to finish this stuff up :\

btw CGS colors are really limited, it's quite annoying! :P

05-15-2009, 07:21 AM
You don't have to use the CGS colors, if you find them annoying. Just use the logo, that's enough.

05-15-2009, 07:42 AM
it's a little too colorful for me, but it still looks cool, I do like the colors on the figure in front, especially those green tones near the bottom. I'd like to see the entire creature in those green values, that would be badass.

05-16-2009, 11:51 PM
thanks guys for the suggestions! So here is the new version, please bear with the bad background/poses, I'm just messing with UE3...I'll try to have something exciting at some point tomorrow?? (where is the wood when I need it!)

05-17-2009, 12:04 AM
HOLY F***!:eek::eek::eek: excuse me while I pick up my nuts off the floor!:eek::eek::eek:


05-17-2009, 01:14 AM
:eek: wow; my only complain right now is the humanoids I think look very statuesque, I think they would benifit from softer colours, more fleshy and gooey. I think it would add some really cool contrast.

Still wow man; really freakin wow.

05-19-2009, 04:07 AM
I think I'm done!

05-19-2009, 07:19 AM
WUHUUUU!! Excellent finish material. Good luck :)

05-19-2009, 01:42 PM
Nice Finish man! Best of luck!

05-19-2009, 04:49 PM
Great finish Feliu...
best of luck for the results...

05-19-2009, 05:03 PM

great to see that you were able to carry your overall vision through from the beginning to the end, no less exception from professionals like your self. even among the many exceptional and superb 3D entries across all the forums, it will be very very difficult to decide the ranking, you piece will stand out among all that exception, and like everyone already stated, i am too, very delighted to have you on our side.

just a quick reminder that there is a second mini-challenge going on for all 3D entries, and certainly in no doubt that we would love to see a group of cgsociety entries in their clan pose of glory on this challenge and your piece should be no exception from it and thus should join that challenge should you not already gather together a group already =).

P.S i wouldn't want to be walking at night with waves of those faves crawling around! eeee gonna run the hell out of here, peace out!

05-22-2009, 05:30 PM
thanks man for the kind words buddy. I'm honored :) there is a great chance I'll participate no the new mini comp, looks amazing :)

05-23-2009, 04:07 AM

05-28-2009, 05:16 PM
