modelling test

beatsta's picture

hi there, does any1 feel like giving me a modelling test, ie.
Give me a character sheet or just a concept and set me a poly limit and see how we go? i wld like this very much. i will post sum of my own stuff soon, but i wld like to do somethin like this as well. I can model very quickly but then i start to loose motivation when it comes to uv mapping and animating. I am now starting to model, setup the rig for the character, then think about mapping and animating, and i hardly think of painting textures at all, as i dont have a wacom anymore [:(] i will get one in a few months perhaps [:)] then i will be happy to work on textures. I have done a few textures but they have been for specific characters so i have pretty muuch looked at the textures i have seen and copied them...
give me a modeling test plz. either post it here or email me :)

i pretty much just like makin models, but it seems to get any work these days ( not that i have worked in the games industry ) you have to do much more than make a model and map it... which i think sucks, coz better ppl in 2d can paint your textures and better animators can animate your model. maybe australia is just too cheap and they only want amazin ppl that can do it all and thus just dont give the ppl that focus on one area a chance......................

Hey, he would be an awesome character to model!! We should put him up as a fun project to do - we've discussed earlier in another thread on doing some fun things for people to do. Would be great to see how different other people approach the same model. How about it!!?

make it like the cgtalk challenges...where you give the stimulus and everyone who enters has to start a work in progress thread in the forum.

Sounds like a great idea to me.. I'll post it on the front page.. Hope to see some really cool models/textures happening as a result! (and some learning/constructive critique happening)

souri.. how can we post works in progress?

You use image tages in your message posts.. When you reply to a message, there's a set of icons - click the insert image one.. it basically spits out the image tage code, which is.. (replace <> characters with []> ... put your image's web address inbetween.

I think it's pretty safe as long as we're not making money or anything like that from his creation, and that we give him credit for the original concept... to be on the safe side, I'll email him and let him know..

I guess that would be best, just to be on the safe side.
But it shouldn't be a problem, hundreds of people visit his site and create works based on his concept art.
