DWIII - 3D - Lukavi - Beytalius The Redeemer

Hey guys Im new to this forum I came over (defected) from cgtalk to participate in 3dtotals side instead. Since I was already in progress when I left from there Ill post everything I did up to now. My character is a Clericon with holy powers of healing and defence. Comments and crits more than welcome.


FINAL UPDATE:












silhouette ideas i started with.


Quick fleshed out sketch of a sihouette i liked.


Front ortho.


Side ortho.


I decided I wanted him on a horse instead of my original idea so i put up a quick action pose.


quick sketch of the horse.


Current progress on the blockout still going.

I think I'm partial to the spinning top instead of the horse. You have a pretty amazing and well defined concept there. I can't wait to see where it goes.

too bad for CGTalk, but I do wonder why you left them. Was it something they might have said.

Hey guys thanks for the welcome, So far I had to kind of just take the ideas I thought worked because I wasnt getting any crits on what i had at the other place. As for poly count Im budgeting 5500-6000 for the knight 2000-2500 for the horse and 500 for the weapon so it should all work out. I also thought doing a horse would be more challenging since not to many people are doing mounted entries.

hey lukavi and welcome great to have you with us, and superb concept work! I have to say I love the floating disk idea, but also agree that there isnt many mounted entries coming out so far, either way it look like its gonna be a good'un

Thanks L3XICON and stalsby, yes I would probably liked to have stuck with the floating platform idea. It certainly would have been a lot less work! I wish I was posting here from the start, you guys input would have definitely been useful before I got this far.

I got to a point where I can call the blockout finished for now, Id still like comments and critiques if you see something you think I may have overlooked. I changed the boots because I didnt really like the old ones, I added the gauntlets, arms, and a belt. I also lengthened his legs a bit, I felt he was looking a tad bit stumpy before. Ive been working on the horse on and off while Ive been doing this so Ill start posting progress on that soon.

This is just ace!

Looks brilliant Lukavi, I can't believe how fast some people work around here! It's just insane sometimes, I'm still trying to figure out a decent conept without looking the same as some other entries.

Keep going matey.

That last action shot you have him on the horse is just amazing!! If you can pull that off it will look sweet!!

Man you blocked that out quick he looks amazing already! Now just throw a quick texture on him and you win!!
