Game Art Comp 9: Tiger - Samurai Tiger


#1

A huge update here… I’ve given him a curve on his body, he now has a stomach… he has some muscle defintion on his arms… He looks kind of short, because I am using the Tiger’s porportions… So his legs will be as short as his arms… Hope you like it…


#2

Phew! Sorry for not updating you guys! Well, here’s the model after about 3 hours worth of work!

and wire:

This is all 896 tri’s… Which leaves just enough for the body, helmet, armor, and weapon :slight_smile:


#3

Looking good so far, do you have a concept sketch of it? I’d like to see where you will take the tiger.


#4

Update:1100 tris


#5

I’m really in need of some critiques! Well, Update


I’ll be starting on the armor now… Give him some clothes, and a helmet to protect the head… I’ll keep you updated… Once again… Crits please!


#6

It’s coming along fine. You might wanna round out the neck more, it seems a bit blocky. The inside of the mouth and his nose are very detailed poly-wise. You’ll run out of polies if you want to have an even poly distribution over the whole body.
His shoulders and torso need more shape, you might wanna let the edges follow the contours of the muscles that are supposed to be underneath.
The ears could also be slightly more pointy.

But then again, its hard to judge without a concept. Did you make one? I’d like to see it as I said before. You have to submit an concept sketch in the submision thread anyhow, even if its not that good.

It’s hard to critique something when we dont know what the end result is supposed to be. Keep us posted!


#7

Work on the shape of the head a bit, it doesn´t look like a tiger more like a polar bear.


#8

Thanks supervlieg! Very helpful! I’ll get it on right away… Oh and… Vamp… My tiger is a white tiger… I really don’t see where your coming from (I compared it with a polar bear) Oh well

Just cause someone did this to me already:

:twisted:

I think it’ll help us visualize where this one is going. Will it have paws or hands? What will his costume look like? etc…:slight_smile:


#10

Okay, i’ll get a concept up soon… But just so you know, It has paws, it uses some of the oldest Japanese samurai armor… Anyways, I’ll post it up soon :slight_smile:


#11

Update, armor in the works

1756 tris


#12

Update: Updated the look of the armor, fixed the arms, wrists, neck, head… After touching up the body armor a little bit, I’ll model him hands, and then the rest of his body :slight_smile:

1900 tris


#13

Looks fine, now finish the body so we can give some good c&c!

Its not bad at all at the moment. But we need a body, and a concept ofcourse.

#15

if your going for tiger proportions u should make it more skinny, cat, even the big cats are really very thin from shoulder to shoulder an hip to hip. nice job so far dude


#16

Thanks… Though while trying to keep the length of his legs porportionate to his arms, I’m trying to give him some bulk… I’m going for one of those big, heavy, drunken brawling samurais, not the swift fast ones… The bulk gives him character IMO… :stuck_out_tongue:

Edit: Oh, also, forgot to mention… I could make him skinnier shoulder to shoulder and hip to hip, but I’m not sure how that would affect the model… I’ll see if I can do that… What do you guys think?
