View Full Version : Looking for a challenge in 3d

Hi, we recently shifted our modelling and texturing work to lightwave and are looking for a challenge in 3d modelling and texturing. Throw us your ideas for a character, we want to develop a fantasy character, detailed texturing and modelling, we dont mind if it for your own project, as long as we are able to use this in our portfolio.

What about an 'Iron Mage' master of the forbidden secrets of the steam engine. Like a normal fantasy Mage but with lots of gadgets, dials and tubing etc...

Oh yeh... make him an Elf not a Gnome. His apearance should be slightly sinister but not evil. Like he has something to hide.

Are you serious!? You want other people to give you their ideas so that you can market them as your own? That's how it sounds, so, maybe you haven't explained yourself clearly enough. Certainly, you haven't supplied any contact details or web-site links. If you want this thread to stay open, please do that much at least, so that people can know who they are helping.
If what you are offering here is a chance to make a model for someone else that they can use, then it is a generous offer, and again, you need to explain that more clearly.

I think they stated pretty clearly that they want to have an idea handed to them that they are allowed to use to market themselfs. hmm, now I don't know exactly how bad the copyright is over there but over here in sweden we can basicly rip designs of just about anything and sell it as long as the 'copied' work has been entierly remade and isen't marketed under registerd names and so forth.
Considering the huge range of interprention a model based on a printed word description can have i don't see how it can be an issue at all?
So heres an pretty original idea for you that is indeed a challange in texture and lighting - make a giant/demon/something that has torn down a catedral/castle and weres chunks and pieces of it's walls, towers, etc as bits and pieces of armor. And heres the ingenious part - there is people still inside. You can see monks, priest, soldiers etc clinging on to the walls or engaging in other form of activities. You can call this creature somthing like "Fruttis - The destroyer of mankind" or "Fortress Zh˘n'dÔrk". Cheers

I think MonteCristo sort of hit it on the head- you've come forward rather strong onemedia. Also, the fact that you only have two posts to your name doesn't really bode well for your credibility on these boards. Don't take these as harsh words, this may be a simple mix-up right when you're new here and I understand that.
If I may be more general, inspiration doesn't come from without- it comes from within. I believe if you come here and ask for inspiration point blank you'll get some really great ideas, but they won't have the same steam with you that they may have had with thier original creators. That is to say, that a really cool idea about a steam-engine mage could be modeled wonderfully by one person, and be a total mistake by another. However, what we can help you with is finding inspiration of your own.
Usually, if I need some new ideas, I'll look at other people's work. Not to copy it, but to see what kinds of elements really make a great piece of art. Perhaps a character is chained to a floor by his guardian...I'll wonder to myself "what would it look like if the prisoner was set free? How would he feel? Would he get revenge?!" Think outside the box, to quote a dead horse. Really get in there and think critically about good work out there, and try to understand what another take on that perspective could be. Perhaps you could listen to some music and try to visualize something that would be a real challenge to model. I do that sometimes too.
Think hard and come up with your own awesome ideas. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with what comes out. :)

Dear friends, I am sorry if it felt that I came on strong. I just wanted to practise modelling in lightwave which I acquired a few days back. I am trying to make a shift to that from max. I am not looking to market somebody's ideas as my own. Please have a look at my portfolio site at www.elanceportfolio.com and www.2danimators.biz to see that I do not need to do that. I made this post on an impulse and the fact that I really could not think of anything interesting to model right away. I am ok if you have a project that you need help in (your commercial project) and if it is not ok with you I will not use that in my portfolio.

I am uploading a few of my work here. I am interested in developing my organic modelling skills further.
