Warlock 279 - Glad you liked the back story motif. I've updated the Great-Dead-Uncle's head now, so hopefully this maintains the look you were talking about.

Lukavi - Thank you very much for stopping by. Hope I won't disappoint!

So... didn't get much time tonight. But Uncle is starting to take shape. I think I'm gonna give myself a couple more days and then I'll have to go with whatever I've got for the concept aNd move on to the geometry. There's gonna be a lot of it.

Heya all. Well, it's been a surprisingly unproductive week for me this week, but that's because I stopped smoking. It's a shame. I killed a lot of people. But now, I'm starting to feel like myself again, and hopefully I can get my teeth stuck into this again. It's not been all bad mind you. I've managed a first pass on the Low Poly (see bottom right corner of attachment), and still have 1.5k+ polys left to invest there. I've also gotten the concept image to about as far as I need it to be in order to finish this model. I'll try to come back to it as I proceed once I start trying to figure out clothing designs... In the meantime, I have a lot to get done in a month, so I'd best get on...


ClassicGamer - Thanks a lot bro. I hope I don't disappoint.

Knut-3DT & Star_Scream - Being a chair for the countess would only be fun for so long. It's when she starts sticking sharp things into your neck and choking you that it gets annoying. But then, some people like that sort of thing.

theboldboy - Thanks for stopping by bro. I've been following your thread with keen interest and hope you can get it all done in time. We'll have to kick each others butts at work to make sure we get these bastids finished eh?

Taehoon - Wow, coming from a former champion such as yourself, that's high praise indeed. Again, I hope I can live up to expectations. Take care bro.!

freeekin' awesome! I love the slightly styalized outlined textures, especially visible on the the guys face, hope that style makes it through to the entire final model, even if its just subtle (just my opinion of course, which is often a 1 off!)

Monte, what will be your workflow from now? well, at least from my point of view, it is a lot more robust one to model a proper base and sculpt it from there, since usually tri-sided polygons and poly-saving topologies might create bugs on sculping programs. And just then create a final lowpoly model. Perhaps I'm assuming wrong you are going to sculpt it haha

Looking great anyway, and congratulations for quit smoking.

Pedro Toledo - I shouldn't even be talking to you for not entering this year. You have to promise me you will enter next year, k? Threedy will miss your sword this year!

Tom-3DT - Cheers bruv. I certainly will be aiming to convey my painterly style in the final model. I guess it will be down to how the normal maps behave. Cheers for the support.

Vitor - You are right, I will be doing some sculpting, but not everywhere. I think a sculpt will be detrimental to a lot of the less organic areas, whereas all the soft body stuff will likely need the help. As such, I'll be building element by element and compositing later. From there I'll work on Diff and Spec mapping.

Thanks for the visit! Non-smokingly yours,

Monte.

Hey Lexicon, thanks for dropping by mate. Hope we can finish this stuff on time and give those other forums a good kicking in the process, eh?

Anyhoo... I'm going to call this stage "the boring stage". This is when I do all the ground work, setting up the LOD0 mesh, unwrapping, optimising, setting up again, optimising, adding details, optimising, fixing unwrapping, adding more details, optimising, fixing unwrapping, and so on... however, with any luck that should all be done in the next day or two, and then I can get on with the business of making this fekka look good. For now, I still have some bits and pieces to unwrap, not to mention I have to add: A falcon, a rifle, some sleeve bits, and an artefact... ooooh. Hopefully after optimisation we should be sweet. This will go over budget for a while, but once the normals have been created, I can look to carve some of the quads into tris etc...

Word.
