Warrior contest

Posted in Uncategorized on October 20, 2010 by destrega85

Hi guys,

this might be bad news for you:

I decided to join a contest which started last week. Task is to design a warrior using mudbox, what really is a topic of my taste;) The prizes are really cool and I wanna enter this challenge – what means that I dont have much time to work on Lordi this year. I know that is really, well…not cool, but this challenge is a great opportunity for me and anyway it doesnt stop Lordi to be released, it only forces me to make a break for maximum 3 month. Deadline is 15th january – but I dont think I will need that much time for it. If you wanna take a look at prizes, rules and so on, just look here

So, I bet I will do both at the same time, but I can say for sure that there will be really less updates than usual, because I want to concentrate mainly on this challenge for the next 2 months. Then it’s over, hopefully I win the 1st prize, and then I continue with updates hehe – and all is fine:)

I did not post any updates last week, although I worked almost every evening on some scenes with Thorghus. I did lots of cloth simulations, as he walks through the corridors wearing a long coat. Im no cloth expert and did lots of testing and stuff to understand the max cloth modifier better and I already have pretty nice looking results. Anyway I dont find them so useful to post here, maybe one scene when it’s totally finished. So don’t worry, lots of technical stuff happened last week, but no typical eye candy, so that’s why there was no update;) But every day the movie goes on and on and on a tiny bit. Hope you now dont wanna kill me for entering a challenge, but don’t worry, it is only the next 2 or 3 months, then all is going back to normal:) – hehehe, until then you can spend your time watching the official ultramarines movie, which will be released on 29th of november (i think). And when you are finished drying your eyes from all the tears of the heavy laughing watching this film, you can look at my blg again;) (nono, hopefully that ultramarines movie will not be that bad;) )

Allright, see ya soon:)



Atrium Door Complete

Posted in Uncategorized on October 10, 2010 by destrega85

Hm, worked this weekend on the atrium main entrance and I guess that shot is done for now:) When I will use this scene later in animation I bet I discover spots which I want to change, but for now this is ok:) Thanks again to Aldo for the great painting. But as I said – sorry for that – it is not very clearly visible:) But the next scene will be a really high angle shot directly from the top of the door, so the image will be shown good enough in the movie I guess – although rather short of course;)

Small update

Posted in Uncategorized on October 5, 2010 by destrega85

Ok so here is finally a new update. I made some tests about the opening of the front door showing some seats for the grey knights. I wont texture the seats until I got a grey knight, because Im not sure how big they will be and if they fit the seat. Also I textured the back parts behind the cockpit section. Now the TH is to almost 50% complete, a bit less.

still waiting

Hi guys,

long time no update due to a lot of work at my job and at home for another commercial project…Anyway that’s all now complete and I got time again to continue the Thunderhawk. I already made some progress on it regarding the interior on the ship. I modeled some seats for the grey knights and animated some mechanical parts for the loading hatch. I will post that in a few days. Seeya soon again with fresh updates:)
