Hi Res! (http://features.cgsociety.org/newgallerycrits/g56/46956/46956_1305952587_large.jpg)
03 March 2011, 01:59 AM
Well, a little update, some proportions test, not sure about the big hands...but lets see what happens :wip: :wip:
03 March 2011, 04:25 PM
Yay Jorge !!
Han , so cosy to be back with you guys ! :bounce:
I kinda like the big hands , feel a lot more powerful ...
03 March 2011, 07:23 PM
heya battlesnake! glad to see you in!
both versions looks good. it depends on how you want your character to be like. bigger hands make him feel more like a smasher than a thinker to me. curious to see what comes next, go go !! :)
03 March 2011, 02:29 PM
Hey mates!! yeah i think Ill pick the bigger hands look so he can look more dangerous,
here i post some more ideas :
all armour will be bones plus flesh plus some metalic parts..actually my concept looks too stylish, my final model will be more rough in dimensions i guess :arteest:
04 April 2011, 07:09 AM
hello everyone, decided to sketch something direct into the mesh, im thinking about adding demoniac wings and a heavy shoulderpad, also the weapon will probable be couple of swords, will add some more sketching soon :beer:
04 April 2011, 09:17 AM
At first I was more like "meh ... again a 'dark' god?" but maybe it's your drawing/sculpting style - I really like this. One more thread to watch :)
04 April 2011, 07:06 PM
Zykras: haha hello!! yeah i was kinda the same when decided my title..lol!! but wanted to show that i can do something cool even when theres a million of the same...haha
04 April 2011, 07:08 PM
a little test on the wings...please all comments and ideas are welcome..want to know if something is odd about the design, if not all..haha :arteest:
04 April 2011, 07:13 PM
Oh this gets better and better ... I will watch closely what you do, I can learn a lot :D (and again - thank you so much for the link ^^)
I'm still trying to figure out basic stuff, must be awesome to know what you're doing xD
04 April 2011, 10:04 PM
yo, i was checking your work and i has thinking in what i can say... is advanced... you poulish the ideas from the start, but now i see something to say.
With the wings there, i sense that they are the unique organic shape in the design (talikg about big shapes). May now you can study some extras on the armor to armonice the set, to put some curves there and here.
Hope this help, peace and good work.
04 April 2011, 07:30 AM
Hey mate :bounce:
Looking really great, the overall design is pretty cool ,
One thought tho , are the wings the generated in that shape by the spline either ?
I was wondering how they retract ... folds , mechanical retract , energy materialization ... :)
Keep up the great work
04 April 2011, 12:10 PM
good start. like the massive character.
but i think you could try out some other ideas to push the design even more. first the name god of darkness. i can't see why he deserves the name - because he is dark? :) i would integrate story elements, put some thoughts on his background - what made him the god of darkness. maybe his eyes got burn out, so he can't see anything and is full of rage...don't know -something like this, so you can play with elements, costume design etc. that makes him more unique and interesting :)
the other thing is his design which reminds me of kratos in god of war. just a bulky warrior with wings. right now it looks a bit too generic. i think with a story behind it and integrating fitting elements to his design you could take it to another level.
just some thoughts...
04 April 2011, 02:04 PM
Zykras: hey man, well I just basically use the body-browser as reference each time i sculpt human figure to analyze where muscles start and end... and I had learn a lot using it every time :thumbsup:
VictorFornes: hi man, I think u have a good point there Im trying to integrate an equal part of organic (fleshy) pieces and mech pieces into the design, but i think I need to plan more about the shapes and give it balance that way, the wings are only a test but I think Ill keep the and fix the design so they fit better, thanx for the helpful advice. :thumbsup:
Zapan: Hey man, yeah the wings are supposed to grow from the back and connect to the spine which will be kinda the weak point and source of power of this god. but I havent though a lot on the funtionality of the wings , I was just playing around to see how they look, but I will try to study some to make the fully operational, really thanx man!! :beer: :beer:
MFTituS: Hey man!! very useful input , thanx a lot, your idea of giving him a back ground is great, He is supposed to be a demoniac god, "the devil", I haven't sketched his horns yet, but haven't think on his story yet either, which is a really urgent think to do i guess.. haha
I already have some elements like tattoos , icons for the amour and some other small things that will help me add some more character, but need to do something to push him out from the generic look as you said, well time to get back to the lab!, and thank you so much... see you around man!
04 April 2011, 03:48 PM
first the name god of darkness. i can't see why he deserves the name - because he is dark? :) i would integrate story elements, put some thoughts on his background - what made him the god of darkness. maybe his eyes got burn out, so he can't see anything and is full of rage...don't know -.
the first image came to my mind with your comment was something like this:
haha...probably some bloody eyes and stitches can work for this one huh?
04 April 2011, 06:57 PM
hehe, i don't want to push you in a specific direction :) it is you char and do whatever you feel is the best. but thoughts like this helped me in the past to create more credible and interesting chars. otherwise you are just surfing on the "coolness" wave. it is like a quicky - you look at it, think cool and head up for the next picture. too much work for a too short effect ;)
and yes, i also thought about bloody eye areas and his eye holes hidden under something :)
04 April 2011, 09:20 PM
Hello everyone, well I though about some background for this character and well I decided to make him like evil medieval style armour, he hates everything and he wants to destroy all, so hes complete aspect will be dangerous, So no high tech at all in this one, his armour will be pure solid heavy metal! :twisted: with some fleshy connections and bones and skull...so this concept only shows proportions...the pieces look will probably change for the final version.
04 April 2011, 09:37 PM
Nice one mate .
But I have a question , are dual wield is the fashion this year ?
04 April 2011, 11:36 PM
Silard: hello, thanx, dual wield still in!! or not?..haha i dont know man all I know is that i wanted huge daggers connected by a chain (not in the concept right now) for this character so he can make some a** kicking when fighting :scream: :beer:
04 April 2011, 03:55 AM
Nice, would be cool to se his face and check a little bit more of his personality, keep it up :)
04 April 2011, 01:09 PM
sonomamashine: hey man, here is the face..haha a bit of delay on the reply but been very busy working on the HP ..ill show progress during this week...
04 April 2011, 01:10 PM
a small update on th HP modeling:
04 April 2011, 12:09 AM
ah other small update...cheers everyone..keep :arteest:
04 April 2011, 12:20 AM
Glad to see you in this challenge :D
Cool work so far. Like a lot the head designs and the expression. All the best my friend and waiting for more updates. Cheers!!! ( con unas cehelas bien helodias :D ... y ta muy chido el concepto ) :beer:
04 April 2011, 02:31 AM
Hello man! Im really happy to read you :), thanx for the words man, hope we find time to finish this one ..we are always running near the edge haha..time to use some nitro i guess :thumbsup: :bounce:
btw your work is looking sweet!
04 April 2011, 05:44 PM
Here, an other small update, worked the hands armour and added wings structure, theyre dragon style so they can be animated ;), made me think about adding a tail...what do you guys think?

04 April 2011, 10:32 PM
Cool update Jorge. The wings structure looks great ( and maybe can work well like and extra pair of arms instead of wings :D) I like the concept without a tail, but is not a bad idea :) Cool work and waiting for more! Cheers!! :beer:
05 May 2011, 04:34 PM
Hey Ferx!!...i will test with some dummy geometry to see how the tail fits . thanx for the support man :):beer:
05 May 2011, 04:39 PM
Hey everyone, here an other small update , still some work left to do..all feedback is welcome as always :wavey:

05 May 2011, 06:06 PM
Cool update, the boots are great, and like a lot the spine. The overall design is totally great :thumbsup: . Again, cool work and waiting for more updates. Cheers!! :beer:
05 May 2011, 05:43 AM
harlequin02: Thanx man!
Ferx: Hello man, thanx!...Im happy u liked the boots, I was not sure about how to create those..but seems they turned out OK :) . I still need to complete wings and add the weapons and some chains here and there...pfff I think Ill be challenging deadline this time!!..:thumbsup:
05 May 2011, 05:45 AM
another small update, added side protections to hips and some small details here and there :
CLick here for "BIG IMAGE" (http://features.cgsociety.org/newgallerycrits/g56/46956/46956_1304314813_large.jpg)

Looking totally awesome bro!! :cool: Watching the big image I noticed the "armour claws" on the sides of toraxic cage, really great touch. Waiting for more updates. Cheers!! :beer:

05 May 2011, 01:14 PM
ah, now i can see where you are heading for...cool stuff. like the stone (?) structures on his arms and legs. maybe you could use something like this also for his shoulder pads for a more consistent design. some cubical rocks could give him a more unique look than this often used pad shape :)
his arms of the wings are bugging me a bit - they look too human for my taste. muscles could be thinner and stretched more, some bony areas could be visible, i would get rid of his clear visible hand and make the evolution progress more ;)
gogogo, only a few days left - wish you the best....
05 May 2011, 03:19 PM
Hey , I just wanna say I follow the thread from beginning . This going to be very cool character .
05 May 2011, 03:40 PM
I've been following too. Great design, and excellent detail.
05 May 2011, 05:08 PM
Very nice progress! Coming back for more :)
05 May 2011, 06:03 PM
Hey Jorge, really great progress. Like the shoulderpads, but like MFTituS suggested maybe you can add some stone attacments like in the boots and arms armour (or maybe another claw finger over the shoulders like the claws over the ribs).
I like the wing arms, yes, are a bit human, but for me, that puts a disturbing dark touch on the design, but is only my personal taste :) (and maybe you can put some bracelets with stone patches in the wing arms, if you decided to go for the more human design).
I think that the breaks and tears on the edge of the wings,make them look more like fabric than skin. Perhaps you can go only with some piercing in the wing skin and some little chains on it, and a few cracks in the wings, I dont know. :D
Cool work, looking really great!! Waiting for more updates ( y ahora si ya suspende las chelas y el tequila y corre a los elefantes pa que te dejen trabajar :D)
05 May 2011, 06:04 PM
MFTituS: Hey man happy to see you here again, thanx for the input on this one, yeah I agree in what you say about thearms for the wings so Ill make come tests to see how it works...For the shoulder pads I make like 4 or five tests on shape..and they did feel unconfortable somehow..so I finished up doing these ones more flexible ones..but I will search an element to integrate them more..:)
Silard: Hello! hey nice to read you!!, I hope I can make it on time man...thanx :)
TonyVirili: :) thanx Sir!
arokz: thanx man, I need to hurry :wip::wip:
05 May 2011, 06:10 PM
Ferx: Hey Bro, really nice ideas Ill give a try for sure man!!, Ill try to incorporate some fangs like things to the shoulderpads, and the wings ideas are nice...I want them to feel natural so probably I will make some magic when texturing comes to get rid of the fabric look u mentioned... thanx a lot for the Help Bro...aah btw bracelets idea is awesome, Ill give it a try...but first Ill do some weapons ...thanx again mate :wip::wip::wip::wip::wip:
05 May 2011, 02:57 PM

Beautiful work Jorge! You really pulled it off with the maps.
I've learned a lot in this contest, but one of things I've learned is that I still have a lot to learn about UV's and keeping the poly count low.
Good luck man!
05 May 2011, 03:54 AM
Looking cool nice work man!
