Grand Space Opera 3D Entry: Bernardo Arroyo Lindig


OMG! You’re so far so soon… And it looks so good… I gotta get cracking! Nice work.



wow…this is really nice work mate!

your sketches are really good but the most important is that your 3d is amazing!!
nice progres you have done…i really like the architecture …and the characters looks very promising!

i have subscribed now…ill be watching u friend!


First of all I would like to say you are going very well, fast and good!:thumbsup:

I liked the scene model very much but I found the head of the machine king a bit confusing, maybe it’s because it isn’t finished yet… :slight_smile:

And tell us more about the history, you said in the first page that you create an entire universe!! I think what is cool about this challenge is that we can see the creation of the image.

Good luck!



well, some space crafts, i spent like one hour in each one, and like 10 mins in the concept, they are not too much detailed because they will be in the background, well, anyways, i like to model and sometimes i have to remind myself to stop! hehe

also, note, that this machines are not at scale, some will be bigger, and others smaaaller ok?


hmm well, i have been putting stuff on my own server, but thanks! now i know that all of them must be on cgnetworks… well i did a composite with a lot of sketches, hope you like them!


more and more coming! hehe, i think i will do a few sketches for the empress, to get ideas, and then mix all of them in the final model… i am worried because i haven´t tried to model a human head i a looong time, so i don´t know how this woman will be…


ok, i know that you will think that this is only to add more post to my thread, hehe,but that´s not the case… i am going to tell you the secret to model fast…

that television, inside your room… is baaaad, i know that maybe i am going too fast, but i dont spend time doing useless things like watchhing that thing… it´s been almost one year, since i came to Canada, and since then i dont have a tv. (and i know that the programming here is really bad) anyways, i do concepts on the bus, i write the story, and i entertain myself on my free time doing models… that´s it…

and also, when you are 21 years old, you have a looot of energy!

well. i have like 5 pages on handwriting about the story, but i dont have too much time to translate it, (i keep writing in spanish, writing, in another language can be hard!!) so, please forgive the bad english and the weird vocabulary in this second chapter…

Story according to the Galactic enciclopedia:

After the year 3200 approximately, on the planet earth a big revolution was starting, after the discovery of travel at enormous speed (faster than light), and the rising of the machines as inteligent beings, a new order had to be done, from one generation of human beings to the other the mankind had the chance to go to the most distant places in the galaxy, the mankind needed to grow, and then they used the machines to breed a new generation of human beings, the “growing farms” in the planets conquered became part of the everyday conversation, and in the period of 300 years, the human population grew 150 times… and even more in the coming generations.

another entry on the Galactic enciclopedia:

The machines after that also grew enormously, they had conquered a big amount of the available planets in their half of the galaxy. To avoid a potential war that may destroy both civilizations, treaties were made,and the first rule was to control the population between the two species, in the human part, some of the machines were going to become the priests of a completely new religion, and they were going to become gods, in the machine part, the humans were going to be the programmers of the new generations of machines, because one thing that the machines can´t do, is create, the dont have a soul, and therefore they can´t imagine something new, all their evolution was the product of a few lines of code created in the begining, and they needed to grow even more…

The peace between the two sides lasted during a long a prosperous time, but from time to time, they had to fight together against other civilization from other galaxies, and both civilizations had amazing armies…

This story begin, when the new Queen of the human kind became aware of the lie in wich she, and all the human kind, and all the machines lived for a long time…

The Queen studied the machines, she was the main programmer on them, no one could ever compare with her in her abilities, and as she became stronger and stronger, she started loving the machines as well, as living things… she dreamed about a new era, were both sides lived together and prosper together. She started programing a new source code for all the machines, but when she entered the code with the rules for feelings (the great virus outbreak), she did a big mistake, and all the consecuences are about to get out of her hands…

if you like this, let me know, so i can translate the complete story of the Empress in the next

hmm i amost forgot, this is done in 3dmax, and rendered with Brazill

m u s t sleeep!


hey cool concepts.Pretty good story too.Like the empress concept.I think you best think of the scale the most however.Cool start on all your ideas.:thumbsup:


nice concepts and good modeling skills! lookin forward to see final image


Wow ! Cool ! nice modeling here !


Very complicated, and your models are looking so good. I’m going to have to step it up to keep up with this quality. Your concepts are very deep. They seem to have a lot of story in them by themselves.


pinche clon vas muy rapido y estan kedando muy bien, nomas no se te olvide comer condenado ajaja


I repeat, you have amazing speed. I’ve been working on one ship for more than 6 hours and it’s nowhere yet. I like the story too, can’t wait to see more - I’m sure it’ll be in the next hour or so!:scream:


I realy like your ideea and models keep on with good work


hmm well, i dont know what to do without the shell modifier in max! hehe, i keep going…
hehehe, i must translate the story, but too much robot for me tonight, i will watch the movie “dawn of the death”! i hope it´s good… i will write more tomorrow…

wow, your designs are really cool.

I like the costumes, they give a sense of history and culture which brings so much more life to your characters.

you spent an hour on each spacecraft? that’s insane fast… nice work

keep it up :thumbsup:


Beautiful work, Bernardo! Out of curiosity, I visited your web site and was blown away by the portfolio pieces. Really, really outstanding – and a pretty sure sign that your final image in the contest will be just incredible!


Hi bernardo…Looking very nice on the concept front.Lots to take in.Nice variety,and the modeling too is off to a very good start…your designs are interesting and in-depth.I like the look and the overall style.I am looking forward to more progress,I’ll keep an eye out for more.Have fun.:arteest:
