22-10-2003, 07:25 AM
Here are 2 characters am working on for a short animation..... models Created in HASH Animation Master.
I posted this in the wrong section, I here is the right spot for it...
23-10-2003, 08:42 PM
Those are some ugly and weird looking creatures:) But I like em':D
24-10-2003, 05:23 AM
Thanks alot rubberduck - thats the look I wanted for them am glad it's very evident....
24-10-2003, 05:49 AM
I like them alot.. but i dont get the bird thing .. back-part;p
24-10-2003, 06:13 AM
I like the fish, but the other one, I don't understand him :o
24-10-2003, 08:54 AM
The reason for the bird / fish guy is cuz am trying to get an abstract feel to the animation. If he works or fits into the scene am not sure yet as I progress through the layout design then I will be able to tell.
thanks for the feedback guys....
24-10-2003, 12:59 PM
I like them both, maybe especially the top one. Great style.
24-10-2003, 04:18 PM

fish update............... :halo:
31-10-2003, 05:09 AM
Great stuff. Love the fish. Whats with the eyes? Are you going for an evil look or Finding NEMO anti hero?:D
31-10-2003, 06:39 AM
thanks am going for an evil look........
19-11-2003, 02:45 PM
update!! I just started texturing him.
19-11-2003, 02:56 PM
Are they now cyclops ??
They`re looking great, i like them :cool:
19-11-2003, 04:38 PM
But good creepy.
very cool stuff
the textured one looks great ;D
20-11-2003, 04:23 AM
Thanks alot guys am glad you like him :) ...
Grashupfa - no they are not all cyclops types...
20-11-2003, 02:49 PM
small update.......... I cleaned up the mesh a bit..
22-11-2003, 09:18 AM
just testing out different textures.......
27-12-2003, 06:55 AM
I am in process of Re-modeling my fish, the cyclops look was not working out. it's not flexiable enough to give me the emotions that my animation needs... So I added both eyes....
modeled in HASH Animation Master.
I will update him as I progress.
looking good, i like the new one MUCH better than the other one
27-12-2003, 05:22 PM
Whoa cool! I'm likin this model... so original... and I agree with sarn, the new one is much better :)
28-12-2003, 12:59 AM
Thanks alot guys... I like the new fish also ;)
I have to tweak his tail and a few other things.....
thanks for viewing / comenting
28-12-2003, 08:36 AM
I tweaked his tail fin.......
29-12-2003, 01:18 AM
Fantastic! I love those piranas they look so mean especially with two eyes, I agree with everyone that the new look is a keeper....but the render with the cyclopse eye is the one that first got my attention, good render and I also like the colors in the texture too, they go well together with your old "alien fish(very original btw)" model...
It would be nice to see one with two eyes and a cyclopse alongside, each in itīs own colors :)
29-12-2003, 10:37 AM
Thanks alot for your feedback ClayCreator means alot ;)
I added fins on his back..... looks ok?
29-12-2003, 12:04 PM
There not gonna eat me are they, cause i will scream...
herbal vaporizers (http://vaporshop.com)
30-12-2003, 01:45 AM
Absolutely, looks great....except for one tiny thing,the upper fins should be much taller and I think that if you made the current fins taller at the front above the head it would look even better,but keep them as low as they are in the back and curve upwards towards the higher part of the fins,....I think u get my point:roll:
How about seeing another render of that bird-thingie?:D
03-01-2004, 03:50 PM
ClayCreator - I tweaked him. thanks for the critz very helpfull...
I still have work to do on the bird fish so I will have a render in a few days.......
here is a new update.......
I added gum, tweaked his fins and started texturing his teeth..
I will have more soon.
03-01-2004, 06:29 PM
Oh yeah, This is great.
i really like it but i have i small problem with the eyes, or more specificaly the area around the eyes, it just doesn't seem to fit to me (this is only my oppinion) it sticks out then goes back i again before reaching the eyes giving you a shadow all the way round.
Well thats what i think anyway, Great model specialy love the lower jaw (don't know why, i'm just weird i guess)
07-01-2004, 10:58 PM
Hehe thanks marty.......
here is an update.........
I started texturing him.....
08-01-2004, 12:51 PM
just to give you some background.........
This is LEV VY the fish; I created him based on a dream I had. He as been a concept for over a yr now.. I decided that I will re-created him... Being underwater is one of my greatest fears and seeing or being attacked by a shark or a fish like lev vy always crosses my mind before I go to the lakes and pounds... I will be re-creating the dream; it's very scary I hope I can capture the same dramatic feel and look....He's modeled and textured in HASH Animation Master...
this design is the original design that was in my dream so I will go with that..
comments are welcome......
10-01-2004, 10:03 AM
10-01-2004, 10:41 PM
Hmmm, youīve totally changed the fish now....It looked much better with the long fins on the back and the darker texture at the top of this page....I like the red "cat eyes" though, try putting some gradient pink-to-red around the outside rim of the eyes if you can.
And then there is the tail....what did u do!?:eek:
Iīm sorry but Iīm usually not so enthusiastic about organic models but this fish of yours is SO COOL Iīd hate it if it turned out looking cheesy in the end...please put on the original tailfin (page2), you can stretch it and taper it all you want, just donīt lose it, it looks very in tune with the rest of the body....that "snake tail" doesnt...:(
But anyway, itīs your model so you can make it look any way you wish...I just had to give you some pointers, Iīm sure others agree with me on some of them.....hope you do too :D
10-01-2004, 10:48 PM
Hmm hes right, and the eyes do not cutt it for me, hopfully you saved like a base model (you should ALWAYS have a base model to go back to) if not i feel sry for you then, good try though dude, least you know that people thik the other version was better, :)
11-01-2004, 05:50 AM
ClayCreator - Thanks for all your critz during my progress on this model...... This model was a concept to see which one works better for me so I can tell my story; it's based on a dream so I want everything to look like my dream cuz it's very personal to me... So I will go with this design; I still have the other fish model above stored away.
but this is the final model I will use....I don't have photoshop to do all the fancy texturing around the eyes ETC, so I have to rely on materials....He works well with the scene thats what's important to me...
thanks to all for your help.........
14-01-2004, 11:54 AM
HEH I can't stop playing with this guy....
anyway here is the final render......
14-01-2004, 08:29 PM
Aaaargh!! Monsterfish! :D
Great work man, I love what you have done to the eyes and teeth, yellow cat eyes really do make those things look scary. :eek:
And since itīs a deep sea fish it doesnīt need a big tailfin to swim around(it finally hit me when I thought about how deep down in the ocean that thing is), the sea water is so thick and heavy down there it can use itīs short eellike tail to wriggle around at quite high speeds I can imagine....thereīs a nice touch of realism you have added to your nightmare fish. Two thumbs up,way up!
16-01-2004, 01:29 PM
thanks ClayCreator am glad you like him .....
am in the final stages of tweaking him.... soon I will model the other fishes......
16-01-2004, 09:57 PM
I will never swim again! ;)
17-01-2004, 04:33 PM
LOL DocMaster :D he means you no harm :halo:
thanks for your feedback.....
30-01-2004, 03:42 AM
Here are some updates.......
30-01-2004, 03:43 AM
30-01-2004, 02:30 PM
The fish are looking great as always, and those new ones really give me the creeps,lol.....Donīt give them any teeth they look really ominous the way they are now :)
Looking forward to see their textures, great work!
01-02-2004, 11:12 PM
Thanks alot ClayCreator for your consistant help along the way...
03-02-2004, 05:15 AM
This is Lev vy's dad things get pretty bitter between them, I would hate to be him.
more to come.....
03-02-2004, 07:41 AM
no no no man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
just exelent.........the model wa really good without the textures but now is just exelent, i love
how did u made those amazin textures??
Suzuki rg50 specifications (http://www.suzuki-tech.com/wiki/Suzuki_RG50)
03-02-2004, 08:30 AM
I totally agree with yak3d on the textures,they look great!
Lev vyīs dad is looking more eerie and alive in every single update, I especially like the tail-bones and "feelers?" sticking out from the head and chin, and the straight pose is better than the hang-down one.
I know you have a specific image in your mind of how it will look when itīs finished....but does that include long backfins and similar fins underneath the body going all the way from the spikes back down the tail,curving down in waves towards the end of the tail? hehe, I think that would make a great addition to it and would also make it swim very fast like an eel. :)
Whatever your future plan is Iīm sure itīs gonna be cool, keep up the good work DarkLimit!
04-02-2004, 07:08 AM
jak3d - it's all done with basic materials in HASH Animation Master...
so I work in layers :
1 - I create a gradient material ranging the colours I need, I use 2 gradient depending on how complex the colours are....
2 - then I create a bump material using A:M's dented plugin; I like this tool you can really get some cool patterns if you spend time with it....
3 - then I create a diffuse material which consist of black and white colours, so I use like the pelin pattern, then in each of the attributes I change the falloff values to make the material look dirty or dark anything below 100 % makes the material brighter; anything above 100% makes it look dark and dirty ....
4 - then I add some specularity just by changing the values in the ( group name ) of the the fish... spec size and intensity.
maybe you don't use A:M but I thought I would explain it anyway :)
thanks for looking.......
07-02-2004, 11:41 AM
Man this is great :D
I would like I've you start with another one
I like them. Keep getting us updates please!
07-02-2004, 11:48 AM
they look cool, like the one with the thing on it's mouth
08-02-2004, 06:31 AM
Thanks alot Eternal10k & MarkR
a small update......
08-02-2004, 06:51 AM
Wow! Those look really weird and fun to look at (almost comical,lol :D). Some sort of bottom feeders by the looks of īem, great work man you continue to amaze me with your creativity.
Keep us posted! :)
24-02-2004, 11:59 PM
ClayCreator - Thanks alot man for your consistant feedback....
I just added some black around Lev vy's eyes just trying to add more character to him...
17-03-2004, 06:38 AM
I finished Lev Vy...
here is the render of him......
17-03-2004, 06:43 AM
I started modeling the doctor that will feature in my animation, here is a WIP so far....
he will look kinda like a turtle when finished.
17-03-2004, 02:17 PM
A bunch of mutated fish and a turtle doctor... Great stuff man :) , can't wait to see the animation.
12-04-2004, 03:20 AM
Phynius Gauge - Thanks for the feedback......
I had some time to work more on the doctor...
here is what I have so far....
12-04-2004, 03:22 AM
Here is a Wireframe........
12-04-2004, 04:22 PM
"The doctor will see you now.":p lol Very unique man, looks different from the other models youīve made and itīs very well modelled, I have no crits even from looking at your wire render, it seems just fine the way it is, canīt wait to see it textured.
Oh and by the shape of it, the Doctor looks very old and tired,how about putting some red veins in the eye texture to make it look like heīs a very good doctor that works long hours and cares about his patients. :)
Great work man, keep at it.
Btw can you plz post a bigger picture of the "bottom feeders"(as I called them,I dunno what they are to you)? I really like the look of them, very funny looking fish......wish I could make stuff in 3D out of my dreams....or in your case,nightmares. hehe :p
22-04-2004, 08:18 AM
ClayCreator - thanks for your consistant input it really helps...
I texured my doctor fish here he is.......
22-04-2004, 08:21 AM
This is the last character am working on for my animation then am unto modeling the environments.......
I will texture her soon.
20-05-2004, 10:40 AM
Looks pretty cool, the bad ass fish and the slow dumb fish can't figure what the humanoid figure does in the story but keep it secret can't w8 for your movie i hope you still gonna post it here :D
