my minion concepts thus far...these are OUT there wishful thinking with the poly limit to 10K.. but i might find a way to make it work... Less is more in this case.... I really want three attached to her marionette artifact.

nice silhouettes so far. 2nd one gives your concepts feeling, i'd go on with that. looking forward to see more progress..

thanks ersinerturk ( :)
yes i plan on taking some of the more "powerful" parts of the second version and then add them to my favorite version C.

no.....not what i want. too close to some of the inspiration from tin-foil of fame.....time to go lookit some junk.

03 March 2009, 06:43 PM
Good to see that you put some work in on your concepts - really like the look of "C" and "E". Also like "F" cause it has an oriental-ike feeling to it. The pose you have for the 2nd page of concepts really gives life to the concept. I would try sticking to this type of pose and design but would also try to integrate some of the elements of "C" and "E". Keep it going!

A quick flavor sketch before bed...this feels better

04 April 2009, 03:15 AM
nother quick update..blocked on minions/puppets.
going to watch some inspiration.

04 April 2009, 02:08 PM
Nice progress - really like the upper right sillouette. I'm imagining a big jet-engine/turbine type power source on his upper left shoulder. Also like the large scimitar hand. nice touch!

some minion ideas i like.

A. might be too techy for a golem ..this idea is a Longshot
it might break the rules too...not sure.

B-C are marionettes I really like. It took a while to hit on something that i could get excited about. both have Eva evangelion inspired plate /ceramic heads and bodies are a combination of plate, chain mail and tattered cloth.

D. maybe a Giant golem made of plate-mail?

E. ? i dunno about this one.

04 April 2009, 06:42 AM
quickie sketches are coming to an end soon
going to model sheets this week I'll be glad but first the junk golem from a early post needs to be ventured into before i go with the reanimated drones.

04 April 2009, 01:04 PM
Nice work on the concepting. Looks like your ready to get into some modeling. Excited to see the final low-poly and hi-poly sculpts. Good luck!

04 April 2009, 06:27 AM
quick post of Golems

i need to make legs for this guy

04 April 2009, 12:09 PM
Nice concepts - like them all but especially the last one. Something about the structure and shape of it really fits the scene. Good sense of scale with the addition of the character.

04 April 2009, 07:06 PM
wow dude, i dont normally post outside of Game Artisans but i really dig the image with the exploding parts. with some nice glow maps for the strings of the puppets this could be a killer entry. i like the asymetry to the one puppet with the big shoulder, very steam punk. have u thought of a detailed pass at the concept for the pupeteer? i see alot of quick thumbs and shilouttes but not too many detailed renders. just curious. neat idea man!

04 April 2009, 02:28 AM
thanks man
I really appreciate the post
I've been spinning my wheels on junk constructs for sometime.
think I found the groove i was looking for.

04 April 2009, 03:37 AM
Quick post

So with all that's going on.
Wife is out of the hospital yay!! :):applause:
PC tablet caught a really bad virus had to reinstall OS and software work came to a screeching halt.
Both cars are in a semi working condition ... cars are the bane of my existence right now.
still; I got my character painting practice in and i am grateful.

next the head and then her tools.

04 April 2009, 05:09 AM
Hey Walter nice to see you here. Great improvement on your drawing skills. Nice concept as well. I hope you set everything right soon. Cheers

04 April 2009, 01:17 PM
Lookin real good! Good job (especially with all the extra personal stuff happening in your life) Your drawing skills are definitely improving - keep it up! - only 3 weeks left.

04 April 2009, 07:56 PM
being pulled every which way these days it seems
at least the body layouts are done
Poly building hopefully tonight....minion lay out page.....starting now.

04 April 2009, 06:25 AM
my model session for tonight.
extrude modeling always gets me something to work with quickly when it comes to organics.
I'll get the rest of her body and head done tomorrow hopefully infact most of her .
look forward tp getting her to z-brush.
I'll need to schedule some junk minion time to.

04 April 2009, 03:26 PM
Good start on the base mesh - looks like you're almost done with the character. The form and silhouette is spot on in relation to your model sheets. Hope to see her done soon.

04 April 2009, 08:24 PM
thanks guys
a lots going on personally so i have little time to waste.
that said..this is the fastest body mesh I've done
5hrs for the base cage 1,873 tris thus far
my projected count will be in the mid 3's me thinks

05 May 2009, 07:26 PM
I know... I so late; why bother?...finish what you start is a good lesson to live by ???
Still, learned more than I thought I would in the period of time I did have to attend to the subject.
However duty called, work before pleasure and all that stuff ...but honestly I just stumbled into a once in a lifetime opportunity where all else fell to the wayside.
Wish i could speak more on it but i cant for about 50 more days.

05 May 2009, 07:36 PM
Even though you wont finish this year, the work you did get done has been some of your best yet. I can tell that you learned alot of new techniques and skillsets that will definitely aid you in your future work and personal projects. Trust me when I say that I totally relate to "life (& work) getting in the way"

P.S. - This is too good of a concept to not finish - I want to see it done at some point! ;)
