I`ll definitely try to find some time for this one. IMO one of the greatest animals for stylizing.
Good luck everyone! :)
05-09-2007, 05:14 AM
can you do painitngs for this or is it only 3d? I've never posted on this forum before and am interested in competing.:dance:
05-09-2007, 08:43 AM
This competition is 3D only. We do however run a painting competition at conceptart.org here:
06-09-2007, 09:27 AM
Well, here's a 30second pencil sketch with the concept for my Hyena. It will be a comedian hyena, driving her audience wild with dirty jokes and her hysterical giggles.
Let's see if I have the time to work on this...
Good luck everyone :D
06-09-2007, 01:59 PM
Here's a first WIP. Still a long way to go...
07-09-2007, 02:22 AM
I have been watching this challenge since my friend Michael Van Den Bosch has won the monkey challenge. :dance:
I have decided to try my hand at this one. Here's my concept sketch. I hope that I will have the time to model this guy...
07-09-2007, 04:13 AM
stiderotte and daddydoom - love your sketches! :)
07-09-2007, 07:34 AM
Hi François, (it's been a while, heh?)
nice to see you in here. I'll follow closely, good luck to you bro!
07-09-2007, 10:25 AM
Thanks my friend :o PM me !!
07-09-2007, 05:37 PM
Well guys, here's my pre-entry. Not sure if I'll modify something or not. Concerning the modeling, there are some things I'm not really happy with, but it was too late to change them.
I'll probably leave this entry as it is, and if I have the time for it, I'll make another one.
C&C are welcome!
07-09-2007, 05:43 PM
I'm planning two lil hyenas.
I wish I could have time for model them!!!:((
07-09-2007, 07:52 PM
Here is my current concept. I'm pretty happy with it, but it may change.
10-09-2007, 03:45 AM
I like its bodyline:) so sexy.
12-09-2007, 04:13 AM
it has begun!
14-09-2007, 12:52 PM
hi im new to the forums, this is my rough concept still needs some work all c&c welcomed :)
epsically since drawing and colouring isnt my strongest point
16-09-2007, 06:59 PM
well, this time i will try to do the model without pre-concept, and see what happens. i am going to travel this month, so i hope i can finish the hyena.
daddydoom_i was watching seinfeld the last weeks, the first and second season. your hyena looks like the humor of larry david. you have modeled very fast, parabéns!
here my wip...
16-09-2007, 07:38 PM
Tnx dude! It was a fast one, cause my "serious" work wont let me spend much time doing it...
Your model looks promising!
17-09-2007, 07:21 PM
Any idea why the hair modifier would turn the normals on my mesh inside out? How do I prevent this from happening... should I just pre invert them and make the hair reverse the effect? Seems somewhat... dumb.
18-09-2007, 07:41 PM
Hyena is a great animal for a stilzed animal contest, really great :D
Looks like a good start, though I think that the jaw is a little screwed because it's made of a circular form and triangles, i don't know if it looks bad in smoothed form, but I think you could end up with a pretty bad mesh in the mouth region.
Good luck with it :)
18-09-2007, 11:15 PM
thanks, narull! that´s why it is always worth it posting in this forum. i wasn´t even aware of that. thanks for your observation.
19-09-2007, 04:22 PM
a little of work in this morning....
maybe I´ll use it as a toy -i dont have many time to rig it and do a cool pose
20-09-2007, 02:57 PM
Nice starter sadot!
I think that, considering the fact that the body is so well proportioned, the head is a bit small and loses the caricature aspect a bit.
Also, the hair on the head is a bit too much I think, but in the back is cool. The overall fur coat is nice too.
20-09-2007, 08:52 PM
Here is what I have so far, nothing too special yet.....

love the model...great style. He seems to resemble a Dingo/wild dog more then he does a hyena however. Hyena's have such a distinct body shape with their lower hind quarters, muscular shoulders and barrel chest that makes them instantly recognizeable. Most bipedal cartoon hyena's tend to either have rather bulky upper bodies with ridiculously short legs or the artist will simply make the whole body rather heavyset allowing for slightly larger legs. I love what you have there...it just doesn't say hyena to me.
21-09-2007, 05:26 AM
I plan on adding fur and spots, which I think will convey the hyena-ness without me having to alter my actual geometry, I hope. Between the spots and the mohawk-style back hair, I think it will end up screaming hyena =)
21-09-2007, 05:57 PM
An update! Time to start working on that hot body...
22-09-2007, 10:42 AM
Ain't that a lovely hyena?
23-09-2007, 03:45 PM
Another newcomer in the challenge :haha:
What one would call a "sketch" or at least an attempt...
and its 3D interpretation (with wire)
Now lets find a strong, cool and dynamic pose:hmm:
24-09-2007, 12:34 AM
XineoF great style in ur character best one IMO
24-09-2007, 03:33 PM
Love that styling dood! Let's see that with fur :D
You could put a really nasty grin on that face. Hyenas always look like they're mocking us.
24-09-2007, 07:04 PM
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like this first try :shy:
DaddyDoom, you're nasty grin idea is really good. Therefore I 'm looking for some kind of craziness, like a dull hunting hyena
Here is what I was working on till then
The neck seems very short, but I hope I could get ride of that adding some fur or something else... or not :dunno:
24-09-2007, 11:16 PM
lol @ first look i thought his leg was really long for some crazy reason lol. Very cool model none the less. And with textures itll be sure to stick out
25-09-2007, 08:36 AM
Ahah! That's it dude! You've got yourself a blood crazed hyena there :D
25-09-2007, 05:40 PM
XineoF that is the craziest model i ever seen mate, looks superb :D
All the other models are way cool too :D wish i could model like that
25-09-2007, 06:02 PM
XineoF great poses!!!!!! great idea!! repeat what I said bfore!
26-09-2007, 12:13 AM
I did find the time to model the hyena. Here's my final image.
Hope you like it...:shy:
26-09-2007, 06:22 AM

Hi everyone. I see some really nice work in here.

RageCage: I love the expression and the heroic pose.
XineoF: Great style and fantastic model. I'd love to see him in motion.
stiderotte: Ohh he's so cute.

Nice work everyone. Hope you don't mind if I join you. Here's my first wip image.
