latest concept thread (for those with blender block)

hey guys, this one might be more suited to character modelers, and people like RobertT who are just insane LOL.

latest concept that anyone can model if they want to. if you want to, then you can submit the modeled images at Blender Battles for voting, otherwise you can just model it for fun.

hope people enjoy it.

p.s. next weeks concept will be (coloured up though)

they go in conjunction, so you may work out that this guy is a warrior. :stuck_out_tongue:

no offense///

This is a good idea, if I had Blender Block :wink:

The only problem, for those who might try modeling it, is that you only provided a side shot, for modeling from an Image, as a whole, you will need at least a front view as well.

Just look at my latest Blend, not bad, but I was lost, untill I dug up a scribble of the front.

Wow, very cool image Alltaken, it’ll be very difficult tho :wink: .

well if more than one angle is needed, i could start from now on doing multiple angles.

however i was hoping that people wanting to make it can make judgements on how the 3d version actually looks. its not about exactly modelling it, but turning a concept into a 3d thing. its harder than it seems, but in many real world situations only a single image would be given.

4Daniel thanks, and yeah it would be difficult. perhaps it would take longer than a week :stuck_out_tongue:

the sword is do-able though, so if anyone wants to do the sword they could start modelling it now.

LOL :smiley: Cool character Alltaken!

I had about a half hour of free time to work on this tonight, so here’s what I came up with. Not sure I’ll be able to update much more it since I’m in the middle of a move and have lots of packing to do. I will try though :wink:

Please click here to view the render.

I approached this more as a speed model :slight_smile: If I get any more time I’ll update this.

Very good idea this weekly concept thing Alltaken! :slight_smile:


AN UPDATE:

Click here to see an edited and textured version of the model.

I added some details too. Hopefully good progress :slight_smile:

Wow, this is a great idea! I’m going to see what I can come up with tonight. …I’ll just do it for fun and not submit to Blender Battles cause I um, model in Silo then do everything else with Blender. Don’t hurt me! :wink:

Are you saying “it’s a concept”, and not intended to be “exactly duplicated line-for-line”…damn, that’s all you had to say :smiley:

I just added a new render to my post above.

Here’s the start of my take on this character:

About 2 hours of work so far.

Nice concept too by the way Alltaken!

[/EDIT]

nice concepts. One question though, is there a full length illustration of the character?

Oooh. I was actually going to give this one a go… and then Robertt had to walk in and ruin it for everyone else;)

not yet, but if i hve some time in the weekend i cn probbly drw up the rest of the body.

i think i might just drw different nd better chrcters in the future, nd give more thn one view of them for people.

lltken

I’m goin to have a crack at this, but why didn’t you post it on Battles? I only just saw this today.
Maybe I should just check elysiun more.

http://battles.mudpuddle.co.nz/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=135

i believe that i did post it on battles. (infact before i posted it here)

but perhaps i need to create a new post for each and every concept, just to make sure people realise its there and new. i was just editing my last post previously.

Alltaken

Sorry, my fault.

Maybe if you make another post each week on that thread so everyone gots the “new message” icon on the main forum page.

Lovely Bubbly.
