Throne room

Posted in Uncategorized on November 22, 2010 by destrega85

If you can call it that…The last two days I worked on the throne room, or better said, the room in which Torquemada has his nice seat and giving orders. Basically this is not a room, its really a huge hall – you enter it through the biiig door, for which Aldo Luna painted the image for. Anyway I wont show this area in the blog, just to keep the suprise:) What I can say is that this hall is now really big and already hast taken 5 mio polygons. I have a clear vision in mind and thus the work is done already very quickly. However I guess I will need one or two more evenings to finish this hall. So again the inquisition ship gets more and more complete – during the weekend I also worked on the ship exterior and basically completed the space scene (well, maybe to 98%). So this scene is done and can be animated and rendered and saved as a final footage:) Now that I got a bit of geometry inside the ship I can also start the pre visualisation, animating cameras, characters(very abstract and simple first) to see how it would look like and to get a feel for the narration of the beginning of  The Lord Inquisitor.

So, hopefully I will recieve some models soon from Ben that I can use, that would make the progress even faster:) Anyway Lordi is again a tiny bit more complete and I can go to bed happily and continue reading my W40k book of the Horus Heresy:) seeya


New corridor

Posted in Uncategorized on November 18, 2010 by destrega85

Hi guys,

I think I will finish the warrior sculpt in 2 or 3 days, so I will start make Dorn in 3D at the end of december, so that it looks like I needed that much time for him to sculpt:) I dont need to worry about rigging, skinning and all that stuff, so that makes the process a lot faster. There is not much action in the challenge forum right now, so I dont wanna be the first who post a 90% finished model after one month:D So thats why put the challenge a short time away and was motivated to make something for Lordi this evening. this took me a few hours to create, and of course there is still lots to do regarding detailing and texturing, but I like the direction the ship interior is coming along. Ben, Im sorry I guess I did your job now already, but I really need those corridors urgently^^ I admit these blue light stripes are a bit distracting now, but I will change that the next days – this guy is also just painted in for scale issues. Anyway Im totally motivated to continue with Lordi, while keeping in mind that I gotta finish the warrior end of next month, so stay tuned, there will be updates again yay:)

New concept

Posted in Uncategorized on November 5, 2010 by destrega85

So after some different concepts, I came up with a version I kinda like. I named him “Dorn” 😉 I guess I will work on him and modify different aspects while working in 3D.

Btw, just got a job propsal as a senior art director at naughty dog, who just delivered Uncharted 2. Senior art director with my age of 25 seems rather strange but I feel honoured:)
