View Full Version : Challenge WIP: rodinho

01-14-2002, 12:50 PM
hello everybody,

i am posting the wip of my great friend rodinho because he barely speaks portuguese, so what can i say about his english:)
well he does not speak a word in english but his work is outstanding, so i am posting in here for him.
he is a 2d artist and a photoshop master IMHO.
this is the arm of his pirate he did a base image of the forearm in 3d studio 4(dos) and all the rest in photoshop.
i´ll be posting his concept work as well as soon as he send it to me ok? the same for the updates.
note: this is a 2d work:)

01-14-2002, 01:03 PM
OMG!!! That's amazing!!! Tell him I like his work :)

01-14-2002, 01:31 PM

ele pode falar portugues.. que a gente entende ... (or i hope so)

01-14-2002, 04:23 PM

01-15-2002, 03:02 PM
heres another update in the arm.
i must say that this is one of the most creative works ive ever seen. the man, using photoshop, can kick my lightwave butt hard!!!!!!:)

01-15-2002, 04:13 PM
that qualifies as really, really cool. :D

01-15-2002, 08:16 PM
It's hard to beleave!!! But i beleave u :)

01-15-2002, 09:45 PM
hey eb,
heres the pistol of the pirate.
boy i cant wait to see it all done!!!!!

01-15-2002, 11:33 PM
WOW...well I guess all that is left to do is print out my pirate, burn it, and bury it in the back yard...So much for posting it...
That is excellent work. Tell Rodhino that He IS the MAN.
I am even more humbled than usual-Don

01-16-2002, 12:01 AM
hey eb,
i translated to rodiño all the great comments he had and i guess we did a very bad thing to him!!!!
he is a freelancer artist that now lives giving excuses to his clients so he can keep working in the challenge:)
i am bringing him food now cos he has no money anymore:)
seriously, he thanks a lot all of you and he said he cant wait to finish his pirate and ur comments are giving him even more pleasure in doing it:)

"thanks a lot!!" - he said:)

01-16-2002, 12:18 AM
Wow! Abso-friggin-lutely amazing work!! I think I just heard Pascal and Matt gulp.;)

01-16-2002, 10:26 AM

el gatto
01-17-2002, 07:58 PM
One word... WOW !!!!!

I love the sketch... the muscles definition, the arm, the... ouffffff !!!

just kidding;)

great work


01-17-2002, 11:04 PM
heres the sword!!

01-17-2002, 11:19 PM
hi eb,
rodiño just sent me a lil painting test that i guess will give u an idea of how it will be in the end.
hope u like it:)

01-17-2002, 11:24 PM

Excellent work, beautiful details... :D :D :D

But, I still don´t get it - is this really a 2D artwork, using Photoshop?? How in Hell can it be? (Rodinho must be completely insane! :) )

Maybe he could send a few step-by-step images... ;)
I would love to see more of his technique.


P.S.: And what about your pirate? You´re a little quiet on updates...

01-17-2002, 11:25 PM
I am in utter awe.
This is probably one of the most jealous moments of my life.
:D Keep it up. I'll either quit doing 3d altogether or get better. Either way its a win win.
You've got my vote already-even if you don't get any further with this character.

01-18-2002, 02:02 AM
we have a winner

cant wait till its finished


01-18-2002, 07:14 AM
Loganarts, I have sat looking at you images for over 30 minutes, your eye for detail is unbelievable. This is really outstanding work. When Pascal started the idea for the challenges I thought this will be good we will all put something in and spend a bit of spare time on the challenge. Well you effort completly blows me away, as does Matt Clarks, Pascal's and many others.

With work like this going into these challenges I think they will be very succesful.

Again excellent work, I will be checking regularly for your next update.

Please HURRY !


01-22-2002, 12:38 AM
hey eb,

rodiño just sent me the hat!!!

01-22-2002, 01:14 AM
this is not possible man :eek: how can someone be so damn good in Photoshop? he sold his soul didn't he? my goodness it's beyond superb.... does your friend have any other works?

I'm in utter awe

01-22-2002, 02:14 AM

logan: diz aí pro teu amigo q o trabalho dele arraza qualquer um, pelo menos poem em duvida a vitoria tanto do matt quanto a do pascal =) mind blowing stuff

01-22-2002, 08:58 AM
Oh dear me! This is the competition! Some people are born with a talent - this guy has found his! Keep it up - your stuff is awesome!

01-22-2002, 10:20 AM

01-22-2002, 12:06 PM
i need a rope.
Seriously, mindboggling work.
Very original design. me drools.

01-22-2002, 02:01 PM
Don't know what to say. Somehow the words got lost somewhere around the toungue area. But I'll give it a try anyway:

-Gurghaahh fthaschl.

Hmm...that didn't sound right.

Better put it in the immortal words of Homer: -Mmmm, pirate. :D

[ m m ]

01-22-2002, 02:15 PM
btw- Did he say 3D Studio 4 Dos!?

How do you get those kind of renders from Studio 4!!!???

01-22-2002, 02:31 PM
Excellent texturing work. I salute ya....super detail

The head is what I want to see most

:D :D :D

01-22-2002, 05:34 PM
Is this friend using just photoshop? Or Studio for some of this? This is just...WOW

01-22-2002, 07:12 PM
GASP!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

01-23-2002, 09:30 AM
I agree with jiggy , how the hell can you create such kick ass renders with 3d studio r4 , I had the misfortune of using it in college and it must be one of the most fiddly , frustrating and primitive packages around.

My hat goes off to ya man .:)

01-23-2002, 12:31 PM
hey eb,
rodinho sent me a step by step and a sofar images..

01-23-2002, 12:51 PM
I really hope he will be able to finish this in time cause it has really good chances to win.

01-23-2002, 02:46 PM
incredible, simply incredible.... I'm literally floored

01-23-2002, 02:49 PM

01-23-2002, 04:06 PM

That will be very interesting...

01-25-2002, 03:44 AM
Beautiful work, it's really nice blend of 2d and 3d. I love it!

01-25-2002, 04:48 AM
Good Lord this is amazing. I wish his body was 3d, but god this is just jaw dropping work. The parrots on CNN...HEHEHEH thats awesome. :)

01-25-2002, 05:20 AM
What a nice blending of 2d and 3d...perfectly made!
I believe this is the greatest character of the challenge.

But Ain't this character missing a tail?

01-25-2002, 08:53 AM
Shloupidoubidthsabordinoqs !! I'm loosing my words here. :D
Great creativity and talent, you must be an alien yourself ! :)

01-25-2002, 09:39 AM
Beautiful work, it's really nice blend of 2d and 3d. I love it!

erm, this is all 2D mate!!
-Galo :D

01-25-2002, 11:18 AM
Um, I'm willing to bet that it isn't. :D

I believe Jean Eric stated that the guy was using 3D Studio Dos and Photoshop when he linked to this thread on CGChannel. It's pretty obvious that some of these elements are 3d, especially before they're fully textured. It's still gorgeous any way you look at it!

01-26-2002, 01:59 AM
aaaa mommy!!!!!
<<<< crowls back to his hole.

thank god i didn't enter the competition, this is mind blowing

01-27-2002, 11:59 AM
just asking...

but can you ask your friend exactly How he met the devil?

and how exactly did he sell his soul to him? do u have to makeup your own contract or what? do u have to qualify ? im interested in it also..


GOD he is awesome in pshop.. man who needs women when youve got all of this eyecandy to look at.

01-29-2002, 01:13 AM

Hi, why is your friends entry not listed in the Januari challenge submissions?

He sure had my vote.....



Jean Eric
02-04-2002, 05:35 PM
My humble appologies. I just had so many images, seems some of them fell through the crack. I am embarassed to have 'forgotten' these rather spectacular submissions.
