Blizzardfest - 3D - Witch Doctor / Warcraft III

Hi here !

I am happy to join 3dtotal today. I don't know if i will be able to reach my ambitions for this contest but i hope that my 'special version" of the Witch Doctor from Warcraft III will come to life.

I wish you all a good BlizzardFest Challenge!




, ,




I just bring some references here but , i'll try to write some words about the character i want to do later because it will actually be a troll but my aim is to show at the end of the challenge a character who will have behind him many years of experiences in multiple magic and sciences experimentations.
A troll who travelled a lot and learnt from many civilisation to become an epic guy.

.. well i hope so ^^

So I have the story in my mind but I think it'll be more interesting to explain it step by step later. Now i think i would better focus on some drawings to get started,

and as i don't really know how world of warcraft look like today, I will take my influences in Warcraft III reign of chaos and Frozen Throne.

That's all for the presentation .. I think ^^

Hi all !

I could not come since many days cause i had too much work but, hey , it's time for "troll modeling".


I made some design on paper this week but this afternoon i went with a silly idea (as often).

Since it's a challenge based on modeling/texturing/Shading, i should focus on that but today i was thinking that i often do characters but never work on "muscles" system.

So, i decided to try something, and experiment around muscle/anatomie rigging. I don't know if i will be using this for my final model but here is a fast test i did on zbrush in order to see if i could
use my basemesh "muscles" to actually rig my final character (i am 3d generalist and really like animation , so that's why i would be happy to push some setup in addition of the modeling of my character).


So Step 1 i did a zsphere armature to get my silhouette
step 2 i dynameshed it and draw my muscles on the silhouette
step 3 i separated muscles and gave them their volume in order to keep them for rigging later (if it happen that my idea look not so silly...)







then i placed the muscles to make them interlace properly (because as they were designed they were only side by side), and now i come with a clean basemesh and some muscles in another subtool.



















It's not my traditional way to work, clearly not, but hey ^^ we are here to improve or experiment some things and i come with the idea that if it's a dead end we have like a month to go back so, i surely will
work more "normaly" if i feel that the deadline come too fast.


I hope my english is not so bad and i wish i will post more pictures soon.


See you.



In addition to that post , i used some anatomie references as inspiration but i am not aiming on an actual biologie likeness of the reality (not sure if it's nicely turned as an english sentence sorry ^^).

Hi all,

just a test on uv for my creature pants. I will not use this texture for the final render ^^ since it would be quiet epic ..
