XVLTR, Daniel Arnold-Mist (3D)

Title: XVLTR
Name: Daniel Arnold-Mist
Country: China
Software: Maya

I dont usually return to a piece once it's completed.. However I felt this piece lacked the work it deserved.

I improved many aspects of the picture (smoke/colour/detail/resolution) and hopfully it has made it better. Let me know what you think.

Comments and crits welcome

Great contrast between the character and the background. Great job.

Awesome model, and cool composition. The only thing I would say is that the pose could probably be pushed a little bit more adding more to the silhouette, you want that negative space around where the left arm comes out towards the camera, possibly just rotating the camera would help it out. Also the smoke looks a bit too even I guess. It just seems like the little peaks of smoke are all about the same size and very evenly spaces like along the head and the back of the leg, you may want to try to vary it more, I'm not sure if thats what you were going for artistically though. this piece reminds me of Richard Marchand's work.
Great work, keep it up.

As I said before, front page stuff. Not sure which I prefer, like the color more on this one and the detail is more prominent.

Great work, great composition.

good modeling + good texturing = great work.

Yup, Meats is a great inspiration of mine

However I hope I have a different style, many of Meats' earlier works used the same technique as used here, and if your going to get inspiration from anybody, do so from the best!

Thank you for the kind comments.

great detail... 5 star
can you show wire ?
  11 November 2007
hmm, kinda crazy showing wires as it just looks like a mangled mess of polygons, however here you go!

Fantastic image! I looked up the first one as well ... excellent work!

I'm fascinated by this method of modeling ... or is it texturing? I'm at a loss as to how this is done. Would you be so kind as to explain? Is it a displacement or opacity mapping or did you actually model each and every spline that makes up the caging effect? And if the latter how do you keep the "form" in perspective while modeling?

Thanks - again, great image!

it would be funny if meats replies to this thread and gives his council
i like this work, though [just like Industrial said] smoke effects look too generic and have almost the same shape. also the wires on his back look too simple when compared to the rest of the body!
