hah thanks a lot i'am really glad to hear such replies but beleve me i won't win... my finals don't look cool enough to be on first place and i'am not sure about top10 or 20 well anyway it was a great experience and thank u for the support really appreciate
omg i just worte one long ass reply, and it deleted FFS
basicaly man, ive seen 99 other entries, like god of justice a woman thing, god of nuke, and loads of others that are real awesome, but yours is totally original man.
Yours has that magnetic booster that doubles as the barrel of the sniper, that asseble with an smg and handgun man, that is unbelievable bro. The overall shape and design witht he wings, makes it suited to aerial flight, and it soo damn readable. The other dudes work is not as readble man, i can spot your god from 99 miles away with that shape man.
The collar lcd design, the glowing eyes and line that goes through it, the overproportioned arms, everything about it is just thought out 100% complete man, with other designs you can change bits n bobs, put more focus here n there, but yours is such a damn complete design you cant possible change anythin.
It has such a classicness about it man, usually it takes some time to understand a character through playing it, story, etc, but this is just GOLD man, its like a robocop, a terminator a metal gear rex/ray. its just a complete design man. If i were a games developer, i wouldt only just hire you, i would BUY this character, and make a game and movie just about him.
And damn i dont even want to start on your texturing and story man, the texturing has so much character, from the angellous decal, to the bulletholes, to the really well used textures man. You see last years winner? that was unbelievable skilled in mechanic design, texture etc, but it lacked charisma, when i seen it i was like 'wow that is awesome, detailed, professional etc'but yours im like 'holy shit that is badass to another level'
Man if the judges dont get you on first place they are mistaken man, i swear its just too SOLID, ticks all the boxes man, its just your inal submission, you shoulve have shown the back rocket more, and more sharper renders if thats possible. But man by far this is the most legendayr piece ive ever seen, i dont think anything can top this in the world! and believe me ive seen a LOT!
wow! well thanks that make sense but anyway i don't even think about 1 place i love this guy too and i really love the story behind him and that's the main thing and as for place second or third tenth or seventeenth who cares i like him and that's the most important
Yeah bro i know where your coming from man, i learnt sooo much during this that im gonna take part in the RIFT comp aswell, though this doesnt have the community experience so its not that good
Yeah man i feel the same man, im wishing i can make it at least through the first round which i doubt but am happy to just have had this opportunity to work alongside some of the best whichi is YOU! damn man so happy you were in our team, and watching your piece from the beginning!
Yeah but its all through public voting which has got me worried cos some of these other 2d guys are famous man! and thye got huge fanclubs here that vote for em! I tried doing the same thing but got only like 4 ppl -___-
Waiting for the 13th now man, its like waiting for examination results in school again haha. Yoo mate i seen that you entered on previous years, man some of the stuff you did for previous yeas look insane man, how did you fare on previous wars?
yeah this fanclubs thing is sick but as i said ignore it it's not about the fanclub or fame...fanclubs has nothing to do about being a great artist if u will aim for the funclub or something like this u'll bever became an artist u'll become a PR specialist or smth so just try to improve yr skill imagination etc and when you do this maybe u'll end up with some kind of fanclub also. LOL
Oh mate you will get bombarded by questions from me now that you offered! haha, i was wondering did you do the whole modelling on zbrush, im total noob at 3d man, i made a dragon head with 800k polys -_____-
I was wondering, how did you make those flat shapes, like his armour, i thought those stuff can only be done on 3ds max n stuff, and then put into zbrush to attack or something >.<
Oh and also, you know your high poly to low poly?! did you make like 2 models or something? i heard this term retopology, did u do some retopology on it or something to make it lower poly?
Haha sorry for the questions man! you shouldnt have asked! xD i got zbrush and 3dsmax, but dont know where to start lol xD
galt shapes and hard surfaces can be made in zbrush too but y'll have some limitations especially the hard edges of the mechanical stuff pretty hard to keep them nice and sharp in Z i've modeled all this stuff in XSI and exported them in zbrush and added some details like bullet holes etc
yeah u should make a second model also a low poly version of yr hipoly stuff and yeah u r right about retopology u can make it in zbrush in max in maya in xsi nearly in any package u like i prefer to use topogun it's a small specialized application made especially for retopologizing
don't worry it's ok i advise u to start from the zbrush all this topology stuff it's a technical skill and the main thing u should learn is how to make a cool characters forms etc
Ahh thanks a lot man, ive noted down your message, this is damn awesome tips! XSI and all these plugins n stuff seem really hardcore man.
I made a dragon head in zbrush [link] but its like 800k polies man, and i only know one brush the clay buildup one or something, apparecntly its good for organic stuffs xD
You think i should follow youtube tutorials n stuff, or buy some magazines?
Ahh another question i really wanted to ask, and this is the most important one! how to i attach stuff? because i can model and shape the head, and then attach it on to the torso, arms etc, model them all seperately, because making a proper fl body shape from zspheres is damn hard man >.<
Do you have any tutorials?
Damn thanks a lot bro! im gonna be your padawan learner man!
no problems XSI is pretty similar to maya or max if u learn how to work in one of these you'll be able to migrate in another package pretty easy so don't] worry about it u don't] mean that u need XSI in order to learn 3d
yeah utube stuff are pretty usefull watch the official pixologic's tutorials at zbrushcentral
u have an append button at the subtool pallete or if u need a single mesh you can append the subtool and then click merge visible
i only have one but it's not about the zbrush if u r intrested you can watch it here [link]
lol no problem u r welcome btw sorry for late answer was pretty busy
Ну например, стоило Молотову (Slipgatecentral если не ошибаюсь) победить в Доминанс ворс([link]), как все стали сразу же клонов клепать с его работы - китайец какой-то чуть ли не прямого клона сбацал, счас вот недавно такую-же бабу киборга видел . 5 сек...([link]). Но Молотов по своей работе видеоурок сделал, так что претензий к авторам формально нет, можно сказать сам разрешил. Повторяемость дизайнов вообще штука злободневная, стоит кому-нибудь что новое сделать, тут же растаскивают. И это хорошо, только вот тянут бывает целиком, а не адаптивно к своим целям, а это уже огорчает.
ааа понял про чо ты ну да китаец шлем явно капирнул
ну тут ваще знаеш штука такая субьективная... можно сказать да блин чувак ты сделал бабу киборга а ето значит содрал у молотова а он может ответить да вы чо пасматрите у меня же совсем другая баба вот здесь не ровно а криво а вот здесь вместо кругов квадраты и ваще я под впечатлением от баб киборгов...про моего тоже можно сказать да блин ето просто хер с пушкой там или без нее а я магу вопить в ответ ну чтовы пасматрите у него на нагах какие штуки выпирают таких небыло у херов с пушками т е формально и здесь у меня ничего нового
ну а когда целиком ето конечно плохо но ничего непаделаешь ето интернет глупо надеяца что какие то идеи на картинке ето твая собственость тем более когда выкладываеш картинку на всеобщее обозрение да и ваще все ш с чегото начинали седня скапировал завтра глядиш чтото свое сделает так что пущяй ггг
Ну да. Переживать тут смысла нет, другим не запретишь, а хорошие визуальные решения надо применять. Просто объясняю что имел ввиду. А у тебя конкретно наплечники + шлем + набедренные пластины с похожими формами хорошо создают силуэт.
