Master and Servant 3D Entry: Joe Richards

Joe Richards has entered the Master and Servant 3D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Modeling: Modeling WIP #5 - more servant head progress-ears!


My second try at making ears for this guy, I'm rather pleased with how this is turning out so far.

Minor tweaks here and there, and the head will be done! and then I get to figure out how to handle his hair!

Still so many things to do and even less time to do them all!

C&C welcome as always!

Concept: Who's Who?

I haven't had a chance to look at everone's concepts yet, so this may already be in progress somewhere else, regardless..

don't have a sketch yet..

But I'm thinking of something long the lines of a wiry, slack-jawed guy hunched over a keyboard and mouse with his head tipped back looking up into a *massive* crt monitor, which begs the question..who's the master and who's the servant?



good luck to everyone!

Concept Sketch: 1st concept sketch



Here we have a computer user who thinks he's controlling his über machine, when in reality, the machine is controlling him..keeping him inside and at the keyboard. - Note the clutter around him..empty soda cans and chineese takeout boxes..even a mini-fridge under the desk and a couple dirty dishes as well!

The space below the shuttered window will probably have some neglected recreational items..football, bicycle etc..things the computer is keeping him from.

hey, wintemute! THat's a great concept there. but i think you can definitely improve your idea and execution. FOr me, instead of two big monitors staring back at him, i could add hands to the monitors, seemingly trying to push him into the pc world. The monitors could be drawn like a mouth too, like the pc trying to "eat" him in! Wel,, just a little idea. But you could definitely improve this concept your trying to convey.

Good luck. Keep it up. I'm looking forward to this piece.

ms@zx, that's an interesting idea! I'm thinking of keeping the hardware relatively "real" without overly personifying the hardware. I think I'll include a surround sound setup on his pc, letting the surrounds become arms that reach around and draw him in further.

I'm also not set on this particular composition..Need to do more sketches...

I think that's a good idea to girdle the guy with all kinds of computer peripherys, like the machine's really closing him inside, not letting anything in or out...

Modeling: Modeling WIP #1 - Servant - Rough



Well, here is my insanely rough start at modeling my servant. The computer user.

This is only the 3rd time I've attempted to model a human. Right now there are no hands. Box modeling all the way here in Blender.

I figured I'd start off by making somebody of ideal proportions, then pushing the verts around to make him into somebody whose physical activity is limited to little more walking to and from the bathroom and the computer.

C&C always welcome!

Thumbs up

The majority of your edge loops look great, you should have enough polies to pull that face out of there. Just be careful near you eye socket area...looks like you might have to do some surgery But hey that's what late nights, coffee and a killer leather chair are for.

Good luck man, keep us upated!

Thanks for the replies!

Versiden: My 1st thought for this challenge was an ata drive chain, master and slave drives But I think this one works a bit better, espcially since there's so much of myself in it

Kid Mesh: yeah, there are some screwy looops in there. I should have most of them fixed in my next update (tonight hopefully!)

DaddyMack: Thanks man! I just hope I can finish!

Still so much to do! So much to more to learn in blender
