Not that your 3D skills aren't up to snuff, but have you thought about entering the 2D challenge as well? I think you totally have the ability compete there too.
thanks man, and I think I agree, the dragon and rider would be a major challenge in all respects. having eccentially two characters on the budget would mean sacraficing quality overall, as well as a nice design that would complement rider and dragon... In many respects it is the challenge of the concept that makes me tempted :P As for 2d.. I did breifly think about it, as my 2d more than anything needs the practise. but my heart lies with 3d always lol. and I don't think I come near the quality of the 2d artists that will be entering!

I've got a quick question for all. I'm still torn between doing the succubus and the scout robot, so I thought I would go back to the rules and see if I could draw some inspiration that would tip the balance, and I came across what could be a flaw in the succubus design... If she was to be entered as a demon lord as I intended the rules state that a demon lord must possess no human characteristics.. which she quite blatently does.. as for a demon prince, they are required to be able to pass mostly as human / alien / elf etc. with the wings, and tail this could be pushing it a little...

what do you guys think? think the succubus could be entered as either of the demon classes? or requires some design changes to fit it into the rules?

I agree wings are annoyingly hard to make look good low poly - well - relative to other things like a body.

I think you'd be alright with the succubus in the demon-prince class. I don't think you've really pushed it much further than anyone else has. Perhaps she can transform to appear more human-like and the form you have is her full demon form. Afterall, if all things smaller then 20x20x20 are supposed to fall in the "prince" class, that's a lot of theoretical room above the size of a human. My two cents anyway.

I hear you L3xicon...well, I'm sure we're all pretty happy to have you on the 3D side of the competition at any rate.

I'd do the robot myself (hmm....that sounded kinda wrong, didn't it?). The succubus is cool too, but I think the robot has a bit more of a unique look to it. But hey, really can't go wrong with any of them.

Jeez laweez those concepts are killer I gotta say I'm leaning toward the Succubus, but all three are amazing. After reading the comments though, I think the robot could have a more unique silouhette with different amounts of eyes and limbs -- the color choice was cool though (I can still see the green eyes!)

Question though; are you thinking of entering the 2D comp as well if you have the time? If you can't choose between all your concepts, why not touch one up when you're done with your 3D entry and enter it in the 2D competition?

i totally can't keep up with these threads.

lex -the floating scout robot thing on the right of your robots pic is a brilliant design, I'd say develop that some more.

well... I've decided to go for the scout - bot, and promised myself I ll have a good stab at the succubus after the war is complete.

the scout bot is going to be a lot of high-tech sub division modelling and hard surface stuff. which will be a nice new experience for me to try I've started rendering out a more complete concept for the bot, trying to figure out details on how I might go about constructing it. I ll also be looking at the drone's / remotes ideas also to add a nice dimension to the character.

hope to finish my concept tomorrow and get started on the high polygon elements on sunday \o/

as always any suggestions or whacky ideas, please post em!

I kinda wanted the succubus, but now after seeing your new rendition of the scout bot I've gotta say it's AWESOME! I love the proportions thus far. The style of the chest lights almost seem like the neon lights from the 1960s. I love the look

Hey L3xicon, I'm loving the development in your thread. The latest concept is looking great. I can't wait to see how you develop this in 3.D I will be keeping a close eye (as i'm sure a lot of other people will!) on this thread. Good luck
