Very old works post yours
show user profile  luima
Hi Guys i was searching something on a backup drive, and found some old works and wanted to share them, if you have old renders please post it with a little info if you like.

001-scissorhands - this was the first complete character i did(textures, modeling, light, render), i modeled in lightwave (dont remember the version) and rendered in 3ds max 2.5, this also was my first work posted on this forum(invited by the user stax) , i guess it was in 1999 if my memory doesnt fail, the modeling and textures took me 6 months


002-the predator head- this was modeled in lightwave (late 1998), textured and rendered in truespace 2


003- girl body , i was trying to learn anatomic modeling, the computer was a 486 at 50 mhz ,4mb ram and 150 mb on disk space. it was modeled using lightwave . the neck show a stretching problem
i souldnt correct at that time.


004- sebulba head, when i saw star wars i tryed to model this character, but was too much for my pc and soon abandoned the project.

005 - camera- this was a speed challenge i did on my own, i modeled , textured , and rendered the scene in 1 hour.

006- Spawn character, i cant remember the date, the scene was almost a million polygons, again modeled in lightwave, rendered in 3ds max 2.5


007-drum set- this was modeled in 1997 and rendered in 1998, i tryed to model every piece of the set, i used booleans on almost every piece, modeled in truespace 2, rendered in truespace3.


008 dragon ball cell, modeled in lightwave, rendered in 3ds max 2.5 1999

1998...I modelled and animated hundreds of animations for the Game of Life.

Here's the cover I did.

This is why I don't model. Ever. Scott Christian Sava

my first steps in flash at around 2003? i think

a school project i did a bit later in flash that got me a whole lot of detention, i thought it was pretty funny back then at least

my first experience with a tablet around 2005

this is exactly 1 hour after getting my hands on max for the first time in 2007 i think

couple hours later

Don't remember the year, but it was the first work I ever posted here
I asked for comments and everybody just made jokes about him not having a nose :P

I actually had this on sale on TurboSquid. It made no sales, go figure

This was 5 years ago, a month or two after I had discovered 3D (and computers!)

And the next one was:

Particularly proud of:

It was a mess and I loved it!
Then I moved to max.

Funny thread.
This thread made me go through my map with old 3d projects and wow I totally forgot about a lot of what I made back then.
Too bad the really old stuff from my first few years of maxing mostly got lost in a HD crash some years ago, would love to take a look at that again.

This is the only old stuff I had uploaded before, I might render some other old stuff (as lots of it I never really rendered a final pic of) and upload it later on.

Superdick! Lol.

to see horizon´s bunny encourages me to show mine.
this was my really first (so-called) character animation in 2002.
i had no idea about "planting keys" for bipeds and a minimum about animation rules in general these days.
thats why i wasn´t able to let the bunny jumps correctly.
so i let the whole scene jumps beneath instead, thats why the feet are floating....
got salary for it tough because customer don´t knows it better either - hehe
after that i read books and tutorials for half a year or so...¤t=hasenorakel_wire.mp4¤t=hasenorakel.mp4

These were inspired by the then 18-year-old me playing Carmageddon when it first came out, in about 1997. Modelled and rendered in Imagine 4. I was pretty much entirely self-taught at that point, just from messing with the software - I didn't have the internet at that point for tutorials and advice.
