Arshlevon - Dominance War

lets do this thing..


=====latest update=====
feb 22nd.. started the arms
just started blocking in the arms.. hopefully will have the whole model roughed in by next week so i can start on the final highpoly.




feb 19th..head and torso update

little update, nailing all those forms down..


feb 16th.. RAPID PROTOTYPE

okay this is not a start on the final model.. i am no concept artist and i am tired of fighting with it..so i thought i would try and make the concept in 3d.. with mudbox i can easily make changes and try new forms out and know exactly what it looks like in 3d . i plan on bringing the RP model up to 100% then retopologize using cyslice or perhaps the toptogun beta, i haven't tried it yet.. then use that model to bake my normal maps.

also i deleted all the old crap cause i feel it no longer represents my direction for this piece.






feb 12th..

so.... i think i am going with super sniper.. he has a sniper cannon that can hit crap from hundreds of miles away with pinpoint accuracy not that he needs it cause his gun blows a road sized path through anything in its way. the base will be him walking through a charred path of earth he just blew through. also he gun has super bendy lazer technology so it can curve with the surface of the planet.. it has to be calibrated to the specific planet he is on though..

okay with that said i changed up the head and added several super scope 6's to his head so he can aim that crap, even thought its pretty much useless because i am sure this sort of thing would have to aim with gps.

i am pretty sure this is the final direction i am going, from here on out i will just spend time rendering the concept so it looks nice and not all messy.. then on to the modeling.

hahha i can tell this is going to be one fun comp already.

nate i wouldnt really call me a benidict arnold, i was pushed out.
bring it on.

here is my first concept, a quick head design.. nothing finial but it shows the general direction i am looking at, a biomechanical shadow beast. need to nail down forms and put more thought into a body design. dont know how well the style will go over, trying something different, not so much a merging of biological matter and technology, but applying organic biological forms to that of a mechanical object. he runs off the blood of kittens, really cute ones.

more soon, i really need to finish some work! haha this contest is going to completely destroy my life! im so excited!

-------EDIT--------
moving all progress to first post.

If you are looking for a reason why you left.. you can always say that you were still on the planet watching tv when the bomb went off. When you woke up, you were fused with mechanics (feel free to include a tv in your design)

Nice concept so far man. It's really starting to take form.

was wondering which team you were going to rep for.......sketch looks good so far, could probably make his lower limbs a bit stronger so he doesn't appear so top heavy...

arshlevon: even though your oil flows green, it's still oil. If any of those polypunks mess with you, let me know, I have a Threedy Team standing by to take care of them. You will be lubricating body parts with their blood when this is over.
