I'm going to make the god of nuke.

Deadline looks quite tight ......

03 March 2011, 06:54 PM
hey good to see you joined the main even.
loved your work from the warm up round.
can not wait to see what you come up with

@lorez: Thanks for comment~
Here is background story about this guy.
He was a commander of special force for nuclear warfare.
Oneday he got involved in suicide mission and all of his team and he were killed in action by radiation poisoning.At the very time of death he noticed someone set him up to this trap.
He fell down to the hell after death.Then He sold his soul to Satan for revenge and he became a devil with nuclear warfare equipment..(it's really cheesy story .......I guess devil could be kind of god though....)
body made from zirconium to keep some nuclear material like plutonium.
It brings the dead body of commander and nuclear reactor and nuke with him.
his Body is connected to head with kind of cable to send and recieve signals.....

Awesome concept. I`m gonna follow your progress :) And you shouldn`t worry about the deadline considering the way DW started with delays I`m pretty sure the deadline is gonna be extended ;)

@kestas: Thanks. I hope deadline would be extended again this year..otherwise it's really hard to finish...
@xdmo: Thanks ,I'm building a mesh now. I post some image below.
@Beneto: Thanks for comment~

insane ! look promising !

04 April 2011, 07:54 AM
Your guy is too good. Two in one body :thumbsup:

04 April 2011, 08:47 AM
Woh I am speechless. Very nice concept and nice hard surface sculpt.

04 April 2011, 04:59 PM
Hi, you have a really great concept there.... and very professional modeling!

04 April 2011, 11:38 PM
Cool design, espicially in the head area :applause: . I guess it'll be hard to show the whole idea using a single image. Though it's always turns out like that with nonconvetional designs, at least for me. Good luck, dude. Your thred is one of my favorites now.

04 April 2011, 09:09 AM
@KingstonZ:Thanks you.
@Velkin:thanks.I prefer to make rough concept and develop it during 3D mesh stage.
@ZenArc:Thanks for your comment.
@xdmo: Thanks for reply.
@harlequin02:Thank you.
@chandramohansahani:Thanks for your comment
@x-art-x:thank you
@pedrOadan:thanks for your reply
adding arm and hand parts...put more detail on head and shoulder.

04 April 2011, 06:08 AM
can i ask ? how did you manage to model such a complicated stuff ? is it simply kit-bashing or sculpting ?

04 April 2011, 02:50 PM
This is extraordinary. Beautiful job. Love all the detail, especially the texture of the hoses.

04 April 2011, 01:31 AM
@harlequin02:most of modeling is done in 3ds max.In Zbrush stage I add small details like slits , halls and dented areas.. etc....
@TonyVirili:Thanks for your comment.

04 April 2011, 06:11 PM
Now this is some serious stuff here! Mate, the best of luck to you. I really cant wait to see this bad boy finished! KEEP ROCKN!!

04 April 2011, 09:45 PM
Sweet, the heads pretty cool on this, makes me think of like a futuristc "Doomsday." Looking foward to more. Will your god have legs or something else?

05 May 2011, 12:35 AM
@arokz: Thanks for your reply.I'll keep working hard to finish it.
@KCassidy:Thanks you. I posted some screenshot with legs. and I'm modeling nuclear bomb ,extra arm to grab it and wing to make him to fly like a nuclear bomber .

05 May 2011, 04:47 AM
well it is epicatromsuperultimateaweomelyinsane !

05 May 2011, 01:59 PM
I AGREE with harlequin02 :)

I love coming back to your updates. They make me :drool: (drool)

Keep rockn!!


05 May 2011, 03:20 PM
woah talk about epic... awesome skills!

05 May 2011, 11:28 AM
Great sculpting :thumbsup: . But don't you think that your character is overdetailed, no?

05 May 2011, 02:54 AM
@JustinPunio:Thanks for your comment.
@Velkin:Thanks for your opinion.I totaly agree on your comment. I figured out most detail of this guy with 3d modeling without proper detail such a problem happend...I would like to change design but I think it's too late to do it.. I will try to cover some details by using dark color during texturing stage.
@harlequin02: Thanks a lot.
@arokz: I appreciate your comment.

lowpolymesh and normal. I still need to reduce some poly count. and there are some seam issue about normal.

plz no more, spare my soul ! hahaha ! great job love the wing !

05 May 2011, 02:14 AM
looks like we have a winner.....your modeling skill is really good,i cant help to reply you.

05 May 2011, 04:30 AM
I haven't been coming to the 3d section, looks like I have been missing out. this is badass!

05 May 2011, 01:01 PM
Nice stuff man!
The wings look like one poly, is that just a single image per side I am seeing for the wings?


05 May 2011, 09:17 AM

Nice work! Keep going. Best of luck :)

great model! It is nice to see how much detail you were able to keep on your game mesh.

05 May 2011, 08:33 AM
@PavelSokov: thanks for your comment.
@harlequin02: I appreciate your comment.
@Kanga: Thank you. Wing is just two polygon with normal map to save polygon.I'm not goning to make back face polygons for wing. I'll use just double sided rendering option. I think 12500poly count limit is too small . I hope polycount limit is more than 20000 .
@petrel: Thanks a lot.
@Beneto:Thanks for comment.
@[mad-one]: Thank you~
I baked out A.O map and tested some surface materials. It's just test stage so It's very weak.
once I pick proper material I'll put very heavy surface material texture.

05 May 2011, 08:49 AM

Your model and the design is looking really great! and the normal map details looks very sharp.looking forward for the texture done.. great work!

05 May 2011, 08:54 AM
i like your concept!
i like your 'god'
i like all of yours!

i am from 2D !
i wanna be friend with you!
so, i wait your message,
and i wanna say good luck!

this is mine..

So you just have maps and alpha channels on those 2 big polygons? Looks great, who needs 20,000 polys ha ha :)

Well done.

05 May 2011, 05:42 PM
this is fcuking madness!! you can't be right haha again, am proud to be on this team

05 May 2011, 09:02 PM
dang dude! that lo-res and those renders are awesome! Keep it up.

05 May 2011, 09:40 PM
Hello there, well this looks nasty! very good job so far :bounce:

05 May 2011, 03:07 AM
Jae-Keum, I've been following you from the start and have been amazed the entire time. When I saw the level of detail, I had high hopes of being able to keep mine within the 120K poly limit, but I am new to this whole process and using only ZBrush. It's been hell getting Decimation Master to drop the the poly's and still look right and setting up UV's is just as bad. I think I waited to long too take that stuff into consideration, and probably need to retopologize.

Anyhow, I have a lot of respect for you and the other 3D artists who do this so well.

It was a great learning experience, but I'm throwing in the towel at this point. I wish you well! Excellent work.

05 May 2011, 08:13 AM
@Kanga: Thanks for your comment
@Randize: Thanks a lot.
@TonyVirili:I appreciate your comment.
but Most of my modeling was done in 3Ds Max.It's still quite hard for me to do hard surface modeling in Zbrush.(I dont mean Zbrush isn't good hard surface modeling tool.I'm just not that Zbrush expert.I'm sure that many Zbrush experts can do hard surface modeling by using just Zbrush.)So I usualy get 80percent of modeling done in 3ds max and do just 20percent details in Zbrush.
for lowpolymesh I use freeform modeling on surface in 3DS max.(it's the same tool as polyboost plugin.)
@rattlesnake: Thanks a lot.
@GnarART: Thank you.

I finished main image.

This is a powerful evil bastard !
Congrats on finishing dude!
Awesome work!Good luck!

05 May 2011, 06:32 PM
wow! I was waiting to see how to gonna fit so much stuff into 12.5k tris, and I must say you pulled it of! your UVs look insane :twisted:

05 May 2011, 07:03 PM
You are a BEAST my friend! HARDCORE!

05 May 2011, 11:55 PM
Just a word of advice, you might want to think about a more dynamic pose.
