Really like your concept art, man! Great work!
And the modells are coming around nicely! Like the rats!
The flute player is really cool, can't wait to see him in 3d!

I saw your thread earlier and meant to subscribe. It's a bitch getting old ... LOL

Those sketches look killer and the model too.

Modeling: pied piper base mesh

This model is the start of the pied piper. I wanted to have a little fun so I put some muscles on him just for kicks. He won't be quite as cut in the final version. Except I think he might have some pretty nice legs since he is wearing stockings after all.

I think it kind of makes him freaky looking. But what are you going to do. I'll be making his garb pretty soon.

I'll try, and great site man. I love the design! Nice and simple.


I'm sorry that didn't pan out. I never finished my spectacular entry. I think that's why I'm trying so hard with this one. And yes, there will be hundreds. Oh the hundreds.


Thank you!


Your wish is my command (though a different fairy tail). Thank you for taking a peak at my stuff.


I know what you mean about getting older. But any time I say that "I'm getting old," There is someone to tell me that I am much younger than them.

Concept Sketch: piper's hat

Just a quick test in zbrush with the hat. It's not textured, just used the wonderful zdepth tools along with some color and lighting.

Every day I use ZBrush I find something new to love about it.

Great work so far and a really nice concept - looking forward to follow your journey!

Wow nice work, the quality of the sketches and modeling is top notch! I don't have a lot to add right now, it looks like you have things under control. I am looking forward to seeing this one develop. Cheers, good luck.

OR, I might have to just go my own style and take the fairytail liberties.

I think your initial sketches are fine. I can only give you a couple of photos of the old town of Hamelin, spelled Hameln here in Germany. The old town, or what's left of it is really very small, but lovely buildings, a few dating back to the 13th century, (I have no pix of these unfortunately), if you'd like I'll try and dig 'em out and scan them. But really I've nothing better than you can find here:-

they will give a feel for the place, lot's of narrow streets with small buildings, and the main wider one with larger buildings.

Good luck with this, it's looking nice.

Hey there Andrew, a lot of cool updates you have here! Looks like you are having a good time in ZBrush, the models have a great shape. I especially like the rat.

  03 March 2006

Thank you very much.


I know that it is early in the contest but I still feel rushed and feel like nothing is under control. I think this comes from not completing a challenge before (mainly because I was trying to graduate with the last two) but I'm glad I'm giving the appearance of "control." BTW, can't say enough great things about your character. Rad is the word I would use... your character is Rad.


You have gained a friend for life man. Those are great pictures. At some point I think I would like to visit germany. If you have time to dig up those pics of the old town that would be cool but if not, no big deal. But every little bit helps. The resource pictures you showed me are probably more than efficient. Again, many thanks. YOU RULE!


Thanks for stopping by again. I've modified the rat's hind legs as well but haven't uploaded the pic yet. I think I'll make a couple different versions of the rat first before I show another update on him.

Wouw, the pied piper is gonna look very nice. I like the style but good luck to you too.
