COMMENTS

Congrats to everyone that made it!

I’m happy to say…this is my first model that was done entirely in Zbrush, no other app has been used at any point except for photoshop for compositing the beauty render. I could also experiment with hard surfaces. A good learning experience, although mixed with my moving out of India for some time (and partying is necessary), so I only worked a few (5-6) nights on it.

If you are interested on a walkthrough of this character, you can see video recordings of all the work I did on it in the wip thread. So far only the head is ready to watch but I’m planning on finalizing the whole body in a few days. Gotta say I finished half the character last night so the upcoming videos might not be too educational for some people.

COMMENT:

Since I originally planned on doing more than a bust, I figured the arm would probably connect to something (e.g., the rest of his body ). Unfortunately, that didn’t happen so I left it out. I did toy with the idea of including it on the table in my ‘workshop’ video, but it became too cluttered and distracting ( and I also didn’t finish texturing it).

Special thanks to Terry and Richard for their reference material. Original Design by Syd Mead.

Thanks to everyone for their support in the WIP thread and Congrats to everyone that has finished!

Comments:

This is the 2nd time, i’m in a hardcore modelling challenge and i’m quite glad that i was able to do up this piece of work which i intially wanted to try out during hcm09-starwars tribute. While C3po was mainly a good test of my subdivisional modelling skills, R2d2 was alittle bit more hardsurface. Based on a concept art and some reference from toys, i needed to guess some of the finer details that were missing or vague.

I’m quite glad that i managed to do up the texturing of r2d2 with my limited knowledge of unwrapping as well as time.

estimated time spent on this project would be roughly 50+ hrs

All modelling was done using 3D Max, and the textures were created in Photoshop. All post work was done in Photoshop as well.

TOTAL TIME SPENT : Well over 60 hrs … to be honest i lost count …

This was my second HMC entry, the first being the Star Wars one last year. It was again a hugely enjoyable experience, but quite intense. The end result is, in my mind, worth the effort.
Thanks to all who commented in the wip thread, and congratulations to all who put the effort into producing some excellent works …

Comments:
Cain was a particular difficult model to create since it has so many irregular shapes and lines, and because
I had to rely on several sources of references which came from different models in different poses
(8 models was created for the movie + a full size torso). Also its non-symmetrical and has four arms with almost no identical elements.
However I am relatively happy with the result and the time it took to recreate this fabulous design.

I spend roughly 65-70 hours on this including reasearch.

Comments:
My goal for this HMC was to model Bender from futurama, a character with a basic cylinder design, in a way that he could qualify as a hi-res model. That meant going for “real world” rules, adding as many mechanical details (hinges, rotors, traction) as he would need to function in “real world”.
A lot of detail is hidden but it was fun finding honest solutions for him, instead of settling for the show’s convenient morphing, and still keep inside the character’s outline while adding the detail. A few props where then added (hot rolexes, deck of cards, booze, cigars) to bring out Bender’s character in the show.

This was my first HMC, I was looking for something fun to do after DWIII. I didnt have all the time to do all the things I actually wanted to do with this model but I did the best I could with the time I had. While I feel this character isnt exactly in the spirit of this particular competition, thats fine with me because I still had a good time working on it and getting feedback from a lot of helpful people on the forum. When I get more free time in the future I look forward to participating in another challenge.

[color=white]This is my first HCR and my first completed entry! I had a lot of fun making Robby. For the final image I chose to use colors that came from the old movie posters for that corny old sci-fi kind of feel, while keeping it simple and focused on the model. It’s impossible to take Robby too seriously with his very goofy appearance. I’m pretty pleased with the way this came out and may add a more complex scene some time in the future. Total time spent about 15 hours.

How awesome – Modeling day and night, channeling my inner sci-fi nerd, enjoying the camaraderie of all the other challengers and being able to call it all productive work! This modeling challenge (the first I’ve taken part in) has been a great exercise and all-around a great experience. In many ways it’s reminded me why I’m trying to break into this
business; there’s so much to learn, and so sweet a journey.

Time Spent:
60’ish hours; kinda lost track. (Not counting rendering.)

Comment,
Blackblood has been a favourite dark good guy of mine since the late seventies.
I went for the Line render to try and keep a look closer to the original comic illustration work of Mike McMahon.
Time spent modelling was about 21 hours per droid (including skinning) and about another 20 setting the scene. Totalling around 60plus.

I did learn some new thing I was not familliar with. Such as Displaced Distance (kinda Z-Depth).
Now a tool I want to use more.

Thanks to everyone who viewed and or commented.
And the amazing quality of threads and entrants.

Mike

well this was a lot of fun, wish i had figured it out a bit sooner than the last week, hopefully some people will see that zbrush can be used as a box modeler if you’re crazy like i am.
