Dude.

Just had another look at those poses you did for your beauty shots. I see you go rid of the blood on the lip which is good.

Awesome stuff ripping that polucount logo appart, love the effects on it. Could you do a render of that bottom right pose, i'd like to see what it looks like on it's own, if you don't mind.

Turned out pretty good. Glad you made it to the end.

Really wish they'd have let us break up that texture sheet, gets lame staring at a watch icon for a minute every time you press ctrl+s.

Thanks for catching the blood btw; I didn't just remove the rather messy blotch on the lip, but since I was revisiting the blood smears anyway I ended up changing the blend mode on them to the one I used on the pedestal so they stood out less. They look more realistic and less cartoony in the end, I think, so thanks for making me take a second look.

Unfortunately, I can't get you the Master render for any individual poses. As soon as the contest was done, I wiped everything that wasn't necessary to keep from my computer. I had over 50 renders to play with (mostly variations with different backgrounds so I could magic wand them in photoshop and see which ones I got cleanest results with), as well as dozens of textures (all confusingly named), various models at different stages of completion - it was all a mess. I'll take a closer look around my folders and stuff later though; maybe it's still around.

EDIT: Well, the photoshop render is long gone - I got rid of all my PSD's. However, 3ds max autoback comes through once again! Here are some clean renders:

Yes it certainly does Y'know, I'm serious questioning my thought process for that - I probably shoulda worked on 4 smaller texture maps than combined them all into the one HUGE one at the end - how would they know? Could've kept the pedestal and character on one sheet that way. Oh well; what's done is done, and overall D-War IV was awesome

Oh btw, Miycko: are you going to do the post D-War mini comp? Since I didn't get around to doing a 2D piece for the main comp, and since I didn't focus on my 2D for the mini comp, I was definitely thinking about entering the next 2D mini comp. Especially after seeing some speed art videos on Gametrailers lately - they really got me thinking about new ways to paint in photoshop:

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/fi...rince-of/33651

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/sp...rince-of/36138

I am so pumped for the next mini comp actually! And doing 2D will be ALOT easier on my laptop - can I count on seeing you there as well?

thanks for posting the images, i think that's the coolest pose

i'm DEFINATELY gonna enter the final mini comp. it's only this year that i started entering competitions and i wanna join as many as i possibly can.

i got my tablet in december so my colouring has only reached this level recently. Are you on deviant art? i joined the good vs evil competition wascom has going there, the image i entered is the first one in my gallery . if not you can start a gallery there, it's free and you can upload as much stuff as you feel like. plus there's some pretty inspiring art there.

thanks for all the help and support man, i definately would not have come this far without it.

can't wait to start the mini comp. speaking of which i wonder when it's starting
