For this challenge I am going to do the 1981 film "Clash of the Titans".

This is a very quick thumbnail of what I'm thinking so far. I will have Perseus with sword drawn, riding Pegasus as he is rearing up. It should be a pretty nice composition once the models are in place.

Few posters for 1981

I like your concept sketch. It almost looks like a stained glass window frame before the glass is melted in.

01 January 2010, 04:28 PM
Thanks, was just a really fast idea of what i had planned, modeling will begin today hopefully.

01 January 2010, 04:48 PM
Looking good Kurt! Can't wait to see where you take this :)

Base mesh of Pegasus done for the most part off to Z brush.

01 January 2010, 07:40 PM (

Have the main part of the wings all blocked out now.

Very nice start up on Pegasus. The white winged stallion. Are you going for the old style or the remake?

01 January 2010, 04:55 PM
Thinking old style for this project

01 January 2010, 05:13 PM
but you will have a lot of work to put all the feathers in the wings!!! ;)

You can increase the shoulders. Make a strong shoulder in back (wings). You can put some muscles there. look at the back of an eagle, is very strong and habe a lot of jumping muscles.
(ref.) (

good luck!!

Zb sculpt started today. So far about 30 mins of work, still have a lot more detail to add.

01 January 2010, 07:17 PM
Nice start on the Pegasus head. Not sure about the shape of the ears though. They remind me of donkey or rabbit ears right now, most hoarse ears are wider at the base and taper like a spade. Good luck with the project.

Nice start !
I am curious to see how you will handle the problem of the feathers...

01 January 2010, 07:07 PM (

Played with the ears and nose a lot more today. Next up front legs

01 January 2010, 05:22 PM (

main body almost done just his wings and hooves.

01 January 2010, 06:32 PM
great start
I like the concept

01 January 2010, 06:20 AM
The new clash of the titans is going to be the best movie.
And yea I have worked on feathers before and they suck. Nice sculpt so far though

01 January 2010, 08:49 PM (

Horse sculpt almost done just a bit more detail to add all around. I will start adding the feathers soon or maybe work on Perseus before the feathers since they will take a long time.

Fast render test in maya to see if the maps are working ok. Still needs a lot of tweaking.

01 January 2010, 02:12 AM
looking good, I like the bone structure for the wing

01 January 2010, 02:24 AM
Yum yum. I could picture those wings with Buffalo sauce :D


01 January 2010, 09:40 PM (

Frist few layers of feathers are on. 7 layers in total so far just hard to see them with no color texture on them yet.

02 February 2010, 02:26 PM
Good idea and realization so far. Best of luck for the contest dear Kurt.

02 February 2010, 06:58 PM (

Started poseing the horse today. It still needs a bit more tweaking to get his twisting and weight right... More updates soon

02 February 2010, 12:12 AM (

Render test back in maya

02 February 2010, 08:56 PM (

Lot more muscle definition added to legs today. Still more to add.

02 February 2010, 08:38 PM
started Perseus

02 February 2010, 08:39 PM (

Had some time today to start sculpting a bit more detail into Perseus. Still a lot more to add.

02 February 2010, 09:20 PM (

Had some time today to block out the 80's hair style. Detail work up next.

02 February 2010, 01:40 AM (

Shaped the body a lot more tonight, he is starting to come along now. Just hands and feet left to detail

02 February 2010, 10:57 PM (

Work for the day...

02 February 2010, 09:53 PM
Just a small update, haven't had a lot of time to add much. Have the geometry for the main, tail and robe just have to sculpt it in ZB. Will be modeling his sword and adding robe button soon.
