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

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

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

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

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

03 March 2009, 10:06 AM

03 March 2009, 08:33 PM

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

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

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

03 March 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 March 2009, 04:02 AM
god damn Gomis!!
U got something something goin on yo threadtoo huh....
all the concepts looks awesome but i might stick to the first one.. thats badass.
neways..hope u enjoy the compitition.
best of fu*^*in luck.

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

03 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 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 April 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 April 2009, 08:51 PM
tried to make a differentiation between shell and flesh, but still lots to go!

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

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

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

04 April 2009, 08:18 AM
yo dds

looking sweet man. sorry i didnt reply early, was busy setting up internet in my place.

04 April 2009, 07:19 PM

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


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

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

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

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

04 April 2009, 11:54 PM
oh yeah jummy!!

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

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

04 April 2009, 05:59 AM
nice detailing champ!!

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

04 April 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 April 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 April 2009, 06:07 AM
So powerful:thumbsup:

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

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

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

04 April 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 April 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 April 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 April 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 April 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 April 2009, 10:53 PM

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

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

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

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

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

04 April 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 April 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 May 2009, 10:33 PM
insane work man, cant wait to see that finished! best demon in the comp so far!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

05 May 2009, 05:03 PM
Great work! I love your Beauty Shot. Best of luck in the contest. :)

05 May 2009, 07:12 PM
Hey Albert,

05 May 2009, 08:45 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 May 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 May 2009, 04:07 AM
amazing finish best of luck for results...:buttrock:

05 May 2009, 05:16 PM
voooo hooooo .....
great model man .... pretty complex n detailed ..
