ENDS 25th

Wigget as the latest winner, unsuprisingly picked the new topic to somehow fit around the pirate theme, so my fav smilie will have to make his appearance for this.


The entry thread:
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=74287&b=3

I'll quote Wigget for the guidlines;
Quote: "Theme: Pirate Humanoid low poly character, preferably with my likeness. it will be used in the anjl game as my character. for an example of the style we are going for see this image..."


Quote: "Don't worry about being so complex, just give it a try, texture it how you want! but lets keep the poly count below say.... 500. that should be plenty as it is basic shapes. No animation required, but the model will need to be animated at some stage so keep that in mind."


And not to forget the standard rules.
Quote: "Rules:

Was just waiting for a piratey type comment...

I'm afriad I don't have things to give away, but the winner does get to choose the next topic, the whole idea of the compos is a motif for people to work and improve their 3D modelling skills, which is why I guess people enter

500 could be too low, however looking at the concept art I can see how it would look great but in the poly limit, I would rely on textures as well as modelling.

@Wigget, if you consend, may I move it up to a maximum of 700, so the aim would be 500, but as with eassy writing, people tend to go over no matter how skilled they are

Wigget are you still looking for that "final fantasy" look like you and Lukas wanted for that game? (Looks like that model will come in handy afterall... )

yes I was going for the ff7 look. which is why 500 shouldn't be too bad but go ahead and bump it up to 700. And as for hosting the competition for my benefit, i said in the previous topic that that was what I was doing. if you have anything against it don't enter . You don't have to follow the guideline of making it look like me, just make a humanoid pirate model.

not saying anything bad about your idea to make the model for you but in these contests the community votes. what if the community doesnt vote for what you think is the best model for your game.

all the models are uploaded anyway. And dark serpent what if I was making a computer case related game, who cares. The competition is up there for people to have fun and model, what they are modelling is up to the winner of the previous contest. If everyone is so unhappy with modelling a humanoid then fine, model a pirate ship, 1000 poly limit. Can be cartoony or realistic. I may use it for some of my tests while I learn to code, is that bad for you guys too?

NO no! thats not what i had a beef with!!! Im cool with makingf a huminoid. I thought u were gonna claim the winner's model to use in ur game. I thought the pirate was cool! ya i just misunderstood u man. I think it would be a better compo if it was just pirates not a bunch of treasure chests and ships. LOlL u went and changed the whole compo for me and it was just a misunderstanding. and even if u did need the model id be happy to give it to ya.

Aww cmon, an hours work any yer' changin it to pirate theme? I could've made a cannon-ball!

Anyhoo, Im done working on mine for tonight. Here's a screenie, I haven't reduced the polies yet and this is just the basic skeleton, Ill make him more "piraty" tomorrow, just wondering how over the top I should go... (stick leg, dead bird, skull cross hat, slightly overweight, eye patch, hook, etc... Ohwell, Ill decide that tomorow. Without furhter adue, here she... er... he is:



Oh, and that isnt textured the verts have just been coloured, but it will be textured in the end.

I think 500 polygons is more than enough for the general shape of the model. With some texture work, it should be quite a nice model. If anything, more detail will be put into the face, at least for my model.


Currently 80 polygons:
Using Silo Learning Edition(Will probably buy the full version , then I can complete model, and I just love Silo anyway)

edit:I'll edit this post with the finished model tomorrow

Makin' progress;



Its above the limit but I still haven't worked on reducing it yet, I dont think Im going to be able to keep all of his accessories in there if I wana make the limit while keeping him fairly good looking, I might lose the bird and possible either the hook or peg leg, but we'll see. Still debating on whether I should model the eye patch or texture it.

Lookin good so far MikeS, I never could figure out how to model using the two pictures, Im pretty sure 3DS Max can do it but Im using Wings.

Just wondering, is the model going to be offered to everyone or just you Wigget?

<EDIT>

Oh and if the model looks a bit "rubbery" or smooth, its just the way wings renders it. Ill export it through 3DS Max to get rid of this problem for the final product.

Nice stuff ruccus Looks like a cross between Runescape and FF7, I tried applying to work for the runescape dudes as a modeller however I had to be 18, however you would have made the part easily by the look of things

@Mike nice basic shape, would be interesting to see what you make of it

Right, Hows this for a settlement

A low poly Pirate model that is within 700 polies, aim for 500 and 1000 is the farthest we'll allow, pirate ships I would say is a bit far, for the reason that the model type deviates from the original idea, it would be hard to compare humanoids and a ship, so lets stick with humanoids...

Any comments/objections?


I think I'll enter this one, I only have two bits of alevel work to do until monday which is good. Plus I need to practice my low poly skills

Great glad to hear you guys are being a bit leniant on the poly limit, I didnt think I was going to fit 700 in there. I want to keep all of his cool accessories on lol, hes got so many now; hair, mustache, eye path, so much decisions...

Thanks for the comments, I noticed it kind of looked like the runescape characters Probably a bit too high poly in unneeded areas though, gotta clean that up.

Damn, I forgot how good a modeller you are. Looks like this competition is starting to pick up! Looking good so far. Face looks to a bit high in polycount, if you check the anjl thread he goes into more depth about the detail (or lack there of) that him and Luckas W are looking for. Then again winning this competition is about pleasing the community not Wigget Either way nice job so far.

thanks dude, to be honest, modelling like that is pretty easy, I've only just worked out to make a low poly head like that, all my low poly heads before looked like the one in my sig.

I could stick to the anjl lack of detail, but the head doesn't seem to harm my model so far, however I don't think I should win, I've already won once for the last character modelling contest However I was thinking my model would be a hard competition against your, as it has nice little convenient bits of detial (And shows more hard work on the model)

I feel so... ashamed.

Well I told my dad that I felt as if I was not progressing in the modelling field and that he'd be best off selling 3DS Max 7 as it was a large waste of money since nothing productive really game out of it so we sold it...

That was about a month ago. May start up again with Wings are something but who knows.

It`s wrong to texture the model before you have finished it,except that the models are good...

Woah, wicked models.

@Bizar Guy: Its looking good so far but in my opinion I think you should scale down the head a bit, I've seen a lot of models look bad (not that yours does) because the head comes out way too big, it also makes the model look like a child but its a WIP so I dont know your plans. Anyways thats what Id do just an idea.

Nice stuff coming out, @Bizar guy, I think you can spare polygons, so you casn cut a few so you can my parts look more round and the face will survive with more detail

Hmm... I like the large head, but I'll definitely experiment with shrinking.

WHAT?!?! I've only got 543 of the 700 polygons left before I'm over the limit!!
Yes, it is blocky at the moment, but that angle is a bad view I see now, and that pic shows none of the textures. I assure you that the textures hide a lot of the lacking polys. But I definitely will be adding more detail to him (yes, I'll even finish the arms ). At this stage I'm really making the model as low poly as I can and retaining the shape. I by no means plan to leave him so blocky.
