Question #30 - Gender Bender

Low Poly Mini Contest #30
Subject – Gender Bender
Thread Naming: Your Name – Gender Bender – Character’s Name
Keep all questions in this thread

I think we all have done it at least once in our life time. You know, you sit back in your chair and daze off, staring into the creative departments of your mind thinking up a bunch of what ifs. Like, what would this character look like as a woman or what would this character look like as a man?

Well, here is your chance to make those thoughts reality. Pick a well know character, from cartoons, comics or video games and flip their gender. So, if the character is originally a man, they need to be made into a woman. If the character you choose is originally a woman, then you need to make them a man.

The challenging part of this competition will be to keep the characteristic and feel of the original character yet still showcase the new character as its own person.

Judging:
You will pick what you believe is the top 3 entries. First place gets 3 points, 2nd place 2 points, 3rd place 1 point. The person with the most points when the voting is over wins. Remember, if an entry does not fill the requirements, do not vote for them.

DUE DATE: September 6th, 6 weeks and a few days from today! 11:59 pm GMT - SUNDAY

Idea:
Pick a character from either cartoons, comics or video games and flip their original gender.

Poly limit:
9,000 Tris Total. You can do whatever you want with these, just don’t get carried away and don’t exceed the 9,000 Tri Limit. Remember, the limit tells you where to stop, there is no minimum, so use as much of the limit as you see fit.

Textures:
(1) 2048 x 2048 texture. This means (1) 2048 for color, (1) 2048 for bump, (1) 2048 for normal, (1) 2048 opacity, so on and so forth. You can chop it up into whatever you want, but you still need to go all out in your texture.

Textures can be hand-painted or you can use photographic sources. Do what you do.


Pedestals/Stands:
You do not have to create one, but if you do, understand that there is no texture or tri limit. You can go as crazy as you want, or keep it basic.

Prizes: (only available with 6 or more final entries)

1st Place gets the following:
- 12-month subscription to the 2DCreative magazine
- 12-month subscription to the 3DCreative magazine

2nd Place gets the following:
- 12-month subscription to the 3DCreative magazine

3rd Place gets the following:
- 6-month subscription to the 3DCreative magazine

Final Pictures
:

Required In The Final Post (1 post per entry):

- 1 x Winning shot. This image should consist of your character depicted in its most awesome angle.

- 1 x Beauty shot of your character. Feel free to put multiple angles of your character or just one big version or your character on this page. Even better, try to composite a nice art piece similar to the ones in the Winners' Gallery. Be careful how you do this though, simple is often better. It’s up to you.

- 1 x wire frame shot of your character. Feel free to put multiple wire frame shots or just one big wire frame shot on this page. It is up to you. Must have polycount included.

- 1 x texture sheet that includes all your used sheets squeezed into "one" sheet.

- Concept Sheet (if you have one)

A Final Entry Thread will be up and waiting around the end of the third week/beginning of fourth week. Don’t forget to submit your work by posting it in the final thread.

Good luck everyone!
BiG ToE.

lex: what, me?

the truth is I can't even begin to decide who to make.

female rambo ("Mambo" has a nice ring to it) has occurred but it'd be a pretty boring model to make and not far off the wonderwoman I did a while back.

I shall think upon it for a while - I welcome suggestions in the meantime.

I am going to go back to 1991 and visit my child hood with Street Fighter 2 and do a female version of Guile. A female USA military soldier. To me, that is hot.

This is soooooo tempting. I really am quite busy right now but this sounds so cool. I will give it a ponder. If I can come up with an idea that really inspires me, then I'm in.

to big toe: I'd like to do Robocop as a women would it be okay to change the head somewhat, like take reference from some girl, she'd still have the suit & auto-9 ofc.. this is about "to keep the characteristic and feel" I guess.

Robocop has been a comic, cartoon and game so I hope that part is cleared.

Cool challenge, might give it a try!

I saw someone in the poll thread mention Kratos which could be a cool one to try for me (if noone else will). Other one I was thinking about is Rufus Shinra from FF7.

Will see, good luck all!
