Josh you are doing great. making 100 models in 100 days is no small task,.. making 100 models + UV maps + textures is a HUGE task, especially when Real Life grabs most of your waking moments.

I can make a model in about 30-45 min.. the UV and texture usually take way more time to make something decent.

Cheers!

P.S. RL has its hooks in me too, I've been slacking a bit in the poly count discussion thread too.

@Josh: It's a project. It's a card and dice game based on the folk lore and mythology of the various celtic peoples and regions.

I'm actually working on both a physical table top version and an online electronic one here in DBP, since the artwork is used by both, they progress in tandem.

I hear yah friend, sometimes life chains you down...in a good way though!

Ortu: I was curious because it looked like something I would play . Do you have a wip? I love studying celtic history and different mythology's from ancient cultures. I have so many books on the subject.

Another quick model for now. Just got home about 2 hrs ago..ate some chili, made a quick model..now to sleep for 4 hours then get up for work. It's hard to really work on something with such time restraints. I can't wait till my vacation kicks in next month!

I havn't quite gotten around to composing a WIP just yet, but the game itself is getting about halfway done so it mabye won't be too much longer. I'll be sure to let you know when I get one up.

Keep up the good work!

Just a question, I'm trying to become more familiar with Truespace, but I don't know if I should be using Workspace side or Model side. What do you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

Clbembry:
Model side is easier to pickup and the mode I like to model in. Workspace is a lot more powerful and has features that the model side does not. Little more advanced. So once you have the model side down start to play around with workspace and learn that. It's worth it in the end.

mike5424:
I wish I could make a living off of selling models. I've never really looked into it before though. I might eventually, who knows.

Some of the chess pieces I have consist of several carved pieces glued together, so the grains are running in several directions. I tried the texture with the grain all going the same way and I didn't like it. So here we are.

...though the chess pieces I own are 6 inches tall, lol!

Yah it can perform all the boolean operations: add, subtract, combine, combine negative. The workspace version of boolean does a elava good job of keeping odd polys/verts out as well.

..and what was going on between Alucard and Azunaki?

If your commenting on my use of 'kul'..that's aussie for 'fun'. I tend to use it a lot...not sure why, just me I guess.

Hah I thought it would be something like that, it's actually literarily Swedish for 'fun' as well so I just got a bit confused. Never mind the above comments.

..worn out. Was swimming all day, decided to take the entire day off from work and life in general. Then I was like, got to make a model so I don't get too far behind again. Almost done!! Two more pieces left! Once I get it complete I'll make sure everything is scaled correctly and combine it into a single download.

I got a question Mooney, how is this treating you?
I was thinking of doing something similar because i feel like i've been slacking a little bit lately in the 3d department, so now i have time i'd like to sit down and really build up my portfolio with some models.

Really depends on my personal life. I try to set myself a goal for each day or week. Plan out models and how complex I want them to be. I think it's all about planning ahead and thinking it through. The main factor is finding the time everyday to do it, as you can see I'm behind 2 models because of my job and family. Though it is pushing me to design-model-UV-texture-export models within a time frame which I think is good practice. Last it's all about dedication. As long as I want to do this project it will be done...and if I don't want to do it anymore then I've failed. Not sure about you, but when I fail something I just hate it, I feel I have to make up for it, do it again better. I'm still uncertain on where this project will eventually end...should be fun.

Edit:
Also I want to note that before I started this project it had been over 2.5 years since I last modeled something. I was a member on this forum then and I was constantly told I was a good artist...but I never actually finished anything. It was like false praise for half finished junk in my mind.

I had to get away from it, let a lot of people down. Recently I wanted to get back into creating games and media, but I made a promise to myself to actually finish what I start.

So this project is not only a test of my skill and a learning experience, but a test of my promise that if I finish will finally make me feel like I accomplished something.

..sorry for the ranting...:p

Good luck with your own portfolio building!

Looks more like a rook than a king...the king usually has a cross on top, no? Keep it up, you're almost 1/4 of the way there!

Just call it "Rook Version 2" and make another that's actually a king to help you get caught up .

For the king you should just try something that resembles a very fancy crown... probable a dome and a cros on top along with a good texture that shows golden bars and a red facric part could look great (something like the crown jewels of in the UK) . And if you're making your king models into rooks I would make theme a little shorter . Usually in a chess set the king is always the tallest . Otherwise great work.

The rook I believe is on page 4. For some reason I was thinking Burger King crown when making this...though without the jewels.

I have the King redone and the knight modeled. I'll be posting those after dinner. Then hopefully I can get my Viper done tonight. Plus I have an ultra secret model that I'm working on.

My most downloaded models are the Guitar, Goblin Mace, and the Ol'Book(<-surprising) with 7 downloads each.
