The Apetaur Chieftan by SteveGibson The Apetaur Chieftan by SteveGibson
This is a render shot from the demo reel I am working on. Hope to get it finished over the holidays.

Still need to texture this sucker! But everything is looking pretty crisp.

The Character mesh is 2,384 tri's, the armor and weapons are 2,482 tris.

Oh, that's lovely =) Is it all in max/maya/blender or a retopo of a sculpt, may i ask?

Really nice and weighty!

It was all in max :) No retopo or sculpt. Turned out nicely! But just never got a chance to texture it...it is rigged though!

Wow. And you just saw that model that simply? That's fatastic! I'd love to have a crack at painting something like that! Are you going in for handpainted or something more realistic?

Sorry for all the questions; i'm just really taken with this model and your skill level is right where i want to be (translate all of this to sound less fanatical and generally more calm and that's what i call a reply!)

Thank you! I actually gave up modelling to pursue concept art/illustration (haven't been posting too much of that yet). It was supposed to be painted sort of cartoony, world of warcraft-esque. You are totally free to paint the model, it's already unwrapped and rigged (a pretty basic rig). Just send me your email and I'll send you the files. It's in max. Though of course you could send it to Maya and re-skin it.

If you do paint it, you should paint the other model that goes with it, the "Adventurer".

You'll have to get some of the concept/illustration work up =)))

Soo-poib; I'd love to have a go! My Getafix project is winding down to a close now and then i can jump straight on it ^^ I got Max with Maya in a bundle when i was at university so i'll give it a go just in Max rather than reskin.

I'll send you a note with my email =)

Can't wait to see this finished! The overall shape and the proportions are quite promising!

Will you do some sculpting on it? It's a great character design! Good luck with your reel :)

Thanks. My 3D teacher says if I don't sculpt it he will lol. I probably will try and do a zbrush of the same character.

Still looks a little out of proportion. You exaggerated the arms too much. :)

Looking good x2...excited to see your treatment on the textures. What is your final composition going to look like?

Thanks, the textures will be fairly painterly, they mostly likely (and sadly) won't have normals. So I've got to make sure what I do have is top notch! As for composition...hm, good question! What do you mean exactly? How will it look on the demo real or am I going to add more to the scene?
