View Full Version : Dominance War V - 3D - GnarART - God of Evolution

04 April 2011, 06:15 PM
Hello all, Here are some concepts i have going...not sure entirely on what this guy could be but I'd like to figure it out asap so it can help drive the design. I would also like to add some more elements and try to find a more bold silhouette.

let me know what you think.

GO CG!:scream:

Ohhh very nice designs! Will be watching.

04 April 2011, 08:41 PM
Wow! mos def looking like a contender! awesome work!

04 April 2011, 09:57 PM
Names... i see in your concepts nature, webs, wood, organic and shamanic... names that came to me... god of (dreams, whispers, forest, earth, time, silence).

Hope this help. good work!

Hey! I didn't realize it was you until I saw those kickass silhouettes!

I am a big fan of the head/helmet/white hairs concept. I can foresee this being an awesomely gnarly sculpt.

I am warming up to the idea of the smaller arms in the middle now. From those new concepts, it seems like it has good potential.

The front silhouettes are very iconic and has that "godly" feel to it, which is great.

Keep it up! Looking forward to see further progress.

Some very very nice looking concepts here, you will have a hard time picking one out to go with!
I liked the idea VictorFornes had for 'God of Dreams', in a couple of the sketches the object on his back looks almost like a dreamcatcher, which can be a pretty creepy object and would go with the overall feel of the character. Maybe even god of nightmares?
Great work so far though!

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments!

Finally figured out what I'm going with and that is the god of evolution. His story is still in the works but basically he is the carrier and creator of three uber beings that can rule the land, sea, and air. They are encompassed in his torso awaiting the day of release. Over the years his wings eventually twisted and curled in front of him to act as a work bench for his creations.

Will be posting 3D updates soon...

04 April 2011, 10:20 AM
Wicked and creepy,

I love the little dudes with the extra arms. It's a great design.

I really dig all your thumbnails as well.

Can't wait to see it in 3D.

04 April 2011, 06:04 AM
That's an absolutely creepy idea. I love it.
Adding those pale alien fetuses was a great touch in term of design, but also for value contrast.

I'm dying to see that thing sculpted.

04 April 2011, 03:21 PM
Hey .. That is a really cool concept you have... really like the silhouette of him... keep on!

04 April 2011, 05:58 PM
lookin realll nasty! youll have a great time in zbrush with this one! diggin the head/dome piece with that hair. nice touch

04 April 2011, 07:51 PM
thanks for comments guys!...finally in 3d, trying to play a little catch up. Much, much more to do...

Here's a shot of the torso. I'll post the rest of him soon.

04 April 2011, 11:44 PM
Hell yeah sick designs! Woo I'm really diggin that torso and those little beings add allot of interest. I'm finally getting time to work on some 3-d too so I'll be playing catch up with ya. BTW nice progress already with the sculpt, looking forward to updates!

Small suggestion; maybe try pushing the little being back on the Z axis some to create more depth in that area. It might even be cooll to see some more of the cavity the little one is sunk into.

05 May 2011, 11:54 PM
Hey all, just posting a small update. I'll post a full body shot with the wings soon...hopefully tomorrow.

I hope the tradition continues with this comp and adds a couple week extension:applause:

05 May 2011, 04:10 AM
Sweet dude! Glad to see an update. It's looking really cool so far! I'm looking forward to seeing the wings and the rest of the body.

05 May 2011, 04:05 PM
Hey all, finally posting an update with the wings, going to try and bust out a game mesh tonight and tomorrow.

Metatron: here's a fully for ya:)

base is very rough

05 May 2011, 04:48 PM
Alright dude! looking sweet! Let's see the whole thing? ;)

Just one last push till the end!

05 May 2011, 05:29 PM
Yeah, that's pretty awesome looking :)

05 May 2011, 05:30 PM
wow, imo best god design on cg! cant wait to see final

05 May 2011, 03:51 PM
Hey guys, thanks for the comments glad you like!

did a quick color test...more of a cavity masking test for polypainting. I'm thinking he will end up being more grey and red for CG's colors. Going to try to finish my game res by the end of today. Good luck to everyone!

05 May 2011, 08:58 PM
very nice update. The colors help separate and clarigy some elements. I am really looking forward to see this fully textured.

I think the flow of the muscles/ligaments along with the sharper plane changes in some forms give him a nice blend of creepy and elegant. Loving it.

05 May 2011, 03:32 PM
just posting game mesh updates, currently at 11,892 polys w/out hair.

Bento: thanks dude, i think the texture will really help pop some forms.

05 May 2011, 03:34 PM
This is so ****ing cool! It looks like power itself.

I just feel like that fusing his legs makes him a bit statuesque

05 May 2011, 12:37 AM
hi there,

Just want to tell you , your model is awesome! and the concept is really cool too.

05 May 2011, 07:56 AM
Sick updates dude really feelin godly! Poly paint test is already cool but if you get more time work some bigger gradients into that paint job;) Looking forward to more, you got a GREAT entry definatly one of the coolest imo. BTW did you do the low/bakes/uvs in a day cause that's what I'm going to try to do:(

05 May 2011, 09:20 PM
Hey all, thanks for the comments. Just 1 quick shot from marmoset. Time to finish up some final sculpting and get on to texturing!

Kcassidy: yep i did it all in pretty much 1-2 days, although i'll keep tweaking it until the end.

05 May 2011, 11:11 PM
Nice job dude moving along fast... that gives me hope lol. Anyways, I love your head of your god in that last pic nice clean shapes and sick design.

05 May 2011, 05:53 AM
Wow, nice model man, and a cool idea!

05 May 2011, 04:40 AM
Looking good man! I'm digging the hair roots.

05 May 2011, 05:09 AM

05 May 2011, 06:58 PM

05 May 2011, 08:12 PM
Hey guys, thanks again for the comments and encouragement:) Here's a few renders of my final normal and ao maps. The diffuse still needs a ton of work...hopefully i'll have them all wrapped up by 2nite.

Good luck everyone! GO CG!:scream:

05 May 2011, 08:55 PM

keep going man this is looking great!! gl!:)

05 May 2011, 03:55 AM
This straight up rocks. Love it now "Finish Him"

05 May 2011, 05:52 AM
Reeeeal good. I love those subtle value and hue variation you got in there. That high contrast with the babies and the hairs versus the rest of the body is a strong selling point, in my opinion.

I really like what you did with the cavities at the tip of the wings.

keep it up, that's badass.

05 May 2011, 07:57 AM
Looking awesome dude! good luck!

05 May 2011, 04:08 PM
thanks everyone, glad you like. Here is a shot of the pose, it still needs a little tweaking, just wanted to throw it out there. Not much time left!

GO CG!!!

05 May 2011, 04:02 AM
Sweet pose. Fits the character well. Nice touch with the warm lighting coming from below

Do it!

You got my bow

05 May 2011, 08:01 AM
looks awesome. I like it.

05 May 2011, 07:23 AM
IT'S OVER!:scream: has come to an end. Thanks for everyone's kind words of encouragement along the way, it was quite a ride:)

Good luck to everyone! CG has got some heavy hitters!:buttrock:



I'd like to get some links up to higher res versions, we will see...

05 May 2011, 07:27 AM
oh hell yeah! That is great stuff

Love you color palette on that main image. nice pose and composition too. This will go far.

pretty sweet that you showed your different head design on that concept sheet too!

Congrats on making it to the finish line!

05 May 2011, 08:36 AM

Exellent stuff! Totally agree with Beneto on this :) Big grats!

This really turned out great! Good job!

05 May 2011, 03:45 PM
Awesome job brother! Everything came together nicely. That main image looks great with all his little mutant minions!! It is done!! now it's time to party!

05 May 2011, 05:11 PM
Yeash! Glad you went even darker on the main image! lots of beings back there that i want to know more about. congrats on finishing!
