I have been to a couple talks by the Epic guys on their workflow of their wonderful models for the upcoming Gears of War game and it has truly inspired me to try to create a a model not only in that game's artistic direction but try to use their workflow as well. I have gathered a great deal of resource and will be creating a flame thrower character that I am hoping looks like it could fit into the game. I am happy to say I not only be creating a head, but an entire character this time :P

This will be a learning process for me and I hope others can learn from it as well.

Here goes.

C&C as always. I am doing most of this model from just a rough idea I have in mind and because of this I might go down some bad directions before I complete this.

The first part of the process, create a high poly model that you can then then use to create normal maps from.

@boringmike - completely agree :D

The render looks a lot like something from fallout :-)

very cool model ! Toss away that avatar man :)

PS: somehow, I don't know why, I see that model wearing a police hat and a gimp suit :) (as I said, I don't know why so don't ask)

Very nice, crazy amount of detail already. I'd also like to see the concept sketch. If you are designing while you model it might not lead to the optimal results as you know.

Kinda reminded me of the robot in Hellboy (perhaps because of Seth's comment):

Great model !

When Seth mentioned the police cap and gimp outfit on this model, I instantly came to think about General Blackblood from the ABC Warriors which Simon Bisley illustrated. Great comic, very nicely illustrated.


I'll be following this thread with great interest =)

Loots hot...I'd hit it.

Puns away!

Sorry JB, looks fucking sweet so far. Although I am not uber like you, I will be going down that same pipeline in a week to get some practice in. Keeping an eye on this one.

BTW, I am assuming you are NOT in zbrush at the moment? Just max?
