Looks awesome, Carnera

Character modelling is certainly a good choice for a tutorial DVD, since it's something so many people struggle with! But I am sure you know that already

Proton, you madman - why are you ordering character modelling tutorials when you've already modelled thousands of characters LOL

Well, Carnera, good luck with sales!

There's a spelling error on this page..

"none organic modeling" should be "non-organic" or "inorganic."

I am not able to visit this site.
It just tries to load forever without fully doing so.
Perhaps the site is so overwhelmed with Lightwavers right now?

Powerwave3D:
)...thanks for ordering

Carm3D: thanks for hunting bugs. we will fix the spelling mistakes asap.....hey...but it wasnt my fault.. markus (my partner)
did the page...lol

sketchyjay:
well, sorry i have to say no. ;( uv-texturing is a complete huge section. the dvd has its focus on modeling the character and creating hair using saslight... but i can tell you that our forthcoming dvds will cover interesting topics like "character animation" and "lw8 and its new power features" (as soon as its out)

nessjp:
uppss..it should work. maybe your internet provider has connection problems to Germany. anyway here are some direct links to the screenshots and to the english teaser video

LW-DVD-Teaser ...english

Great to see the DVD is finally out and what an amazing price

Just a few questions though :

Is there a detailed TOC somewhere ?

What modeling method does this tutorial cover ( box modeling, patch modeling, etc ) ?

How many hours is this tutorial ?

I haven't seen the DVD teaser yet, but does this tutorial show how to create the character which is on the DVD cover ?

Thx

hi ghopper:

sorry theres no TOC yet...we will do some modifications on the page anyway and we will add a TOC list.
but to give you a rough overview about the topics

- head modeling
- hair using saslight
- cloth modeling (jacket, gloves, boots, pants, shirt)
- gun modeling
- eyepatch modeling

i will show box modeling and i think i will use 5 tools to model the entire character. so in a very optimized and fast way

btw its a DVD 9, so you can access / read the rom part (objects, scenes and textures) on PC and Mac.

the DVD has a playtime of ca. 165 minutes and yes, the character on the cover will be modeled
