DWIII-3D-Brad James-Warlord

Hi Everyone,

I’ve decided to join the madness and try my hands at making my first game model. It will all be very new to me so as much help as possible would be great. This is the idea for my model.

His name is Lord Anteus and he once was a human until he came across a special glove. As he slipped on the glove he could feel a change coming over his body. The rock/iron glove started to form into his hand and he could feel a new sense of power. Over time the rest of his body changed form. His feet became rock, and a protective layer of rock grow from his back rising above his head. His shoulders also became covered in rock. His body/arms are now also covered with wards which link him to the earth and draws power from it. This is the only magic he has but it is only useful on himself for rejuvenating his body in battle. It also gives him the power and strength to move since his body has become so heavy from the iron/rock. The glove he carries has a sharp shaped stone at the end which he uses as a weapon. If the weapon or glove ever become damaged in battle or cut off it will grow back to its initial state.

I will post my progress on the basemesh very soon….

Xarxys: I really suck at drawing so I don't spend much time at it. Here is a sketch I did to get the main ideas down. Lots of issue in it but its just a sketch right

ok so've jumped right into the sculpting now and I'm just trying to lay out the forms. I know I don't do much sketching on paper but I find I use Mudbox as kind of a sketch book. I play with ideas in there and bring out the features in the character instead of on paper. Anyways here he is so far. Still loads of things to change and fix.

Good start on the sulpting. Is he wearing armor or is his body going to be incased in stone?

dmonk: Thanks man. The armor has grown to his body so as best I can I will try to convey that.
Old 02 February 2008   #11
ok well I've changed the feet design direction a little. I've made them appear more as if they are growing up into his legs instead of a protective section over the knee. I also decided to pull out some rock/iron armor from his sides. I'll see how that turns out over time.

I think It's good execution, but I don't know if I'm feeling the artifact on his arm and I think for the armor to work it needs to have a little more of an organic feel like the rocks coming out of his back. I like the start of the armor by itself and the rock formations by itself, but something just isn't connecting for me.

Just my 2 cents, which is only worth about 2 cents.

dmonk: Thank you for the reply and trust me your comments are worth more then 2 cents. I agree with them and I will work on pushing the various rock/armor sections to flow/fit better with the model.

Avatarr: Thanks for the nice comment and I should have an update soon.
