hey man, I wouldn’t usually recommend this, but,…a lens flare might look nice. killer modelling and good concept.
Excellent work. Put a small signature on it so it looks finished.
That thing looks amazing!!! I DO, however spot a HUGE Achilles Heel in that armor. Is there anything to cover his head?
cool! i’d like to see some more detail though. (wear on the edges of the armour, etc.). totally reminds me of a Starcraft Marine
keep it up!
damn! you stole what i wanted to say…StarCraft…
you do need a simbol on his shoulder and glass head cover
very good lighting and camera angle (the things that i usually suck at
Not bad. The metal could use a little less specular and a higher res texture, but that’s all I would recommend.
A little bit of side light for the face would be nice too.
can’t remember the artists name…hold on… no cant find it
this is inspired by a well known artist no? always thought it look like a warhammer40k marine
good so far, maybe a little light on the right side of the face, not much just enough so its not black
EDIT; not the artist i was thinking of…maybe a link to your reference image to help with crits?
I believe you are referring to this picture (CGTalk thread):
I love it. How have you made the texture (I’a a little newbie, so).
thats the one, ya know who did it?
It was by .:STRIKE:., as can be seen by the name in the bottom right of the image.
I thought I recognized it too at first.
I would like it more highpoly or somehow sharper. I dont like the roundness.
But it’s a well done image anyway. Good job.
Traitor, you are a traitor! Copying somebody else’s work. :<
WOW…ALthough not nearly as detailed as the “original”, It has so much more emotion. :o
I agree, it’s got fewer fine details, but I actually like the feeling of it a lot more than the inspiration.
I don’t have a problem copying others ideas as long as you give props to the original artist and let the community know it’s a knockoff. Just don’t claim it as your own original idea. That’s kind of shady.
:o :o :o :o :o :o :o
Never seen something like this!
:o :o :o :o :o :o :o
crap, i totally missed my cut and paste that i had set op for my first post, which is why theres no text in it…
here it is (what i can remember)
done in blender 2.34, rendered in 2 passes, one with the shadows (raytraced) and one with the glowy lights behind the soldier. i then combined them in photoshop, using lighten and duplicating the glowing lights with a blurred one to make it glow better.
the picture, is of course, as you all pointed out inspired by :STRIKE:'s fantastic render posted on CGtalk. it started as a very quick model (as you can see ) and i wanted to convey something similar, but with a little more emotion. who would of thought you could show more by showing less?
thank you all for you crits, i deeply apologize for missing that at the first post, it would have saved a lot of embarrassment!
thanks BgDM, i looked in the corner how’d i miss it??.. ah well should wear my glasses…
still think its a bit too dark on the right of the face…but thats just my opinion…
i didnt mean to make it seem that traitor was stealing someone elses concept…just knew id seen it before, sorry about that.
