I'm going to try and stick it out til the end, i'm in production at the mo so I have given myself Friday nights and maybe one Saturday to work on this..depending how the work load is going, but it looks to fun not to try.

So after reading up on the story, I thought I would base the back story story around Moriori, so last Friday just started doing some research and jotting some ideas down and pulling idea out of some of the articles I was reading.

Still not sure what the artifact is going to look like, I have narrowed the powers down to three, so from what I choose will sort of dictate what the look will be, hopefully I can get that done as on the way to a design by the end of tomorrow night.


anyways here are my crappy notes from last friday, sorry about my messy hand writing :)

Cheers Worzel, I hear sleep is overrated anyways :)

Ok pretty much know what I am doing now, I am in the progress of drawing up the concepts, hopefully have thos posted tomorrow night once the page is fulled or I strike the design that I will go with.

Researching has got to be one of my favorite aspects of design, man you get to learn some cool shit. Anyways enough of my blabbering.

Backstory to follow shortly, loosely based on Mayan mythology

Alrighty then, here is another late update, going to start the base mesh tonight, and try and get it sorted. It is going to be a sprint to the finish line that is for sure...hope I can finish this one...Fingers crossed.

Good stuff! One more week to go! What is all that 'hair' made from? How are you going to do that?

Cheers Worzel, yeah it will be a mad dash, hopefully I can get something finished. I was thinking of doing hair in maya originally but now I really wanna try out the new fibre mesh in the new zbrush update, I miss using zbursh and any excuse to use it is a good one :)

Here is a quick sculpt, just getting the base mesh ready and the basic forms, still have some squishing around to do, and trying to get it not to look like a predator mask :P

LUCINO78 - Thanks man, yeah sculpting is so much fun, I really want to have a go of traditional sculpting sometime, have you ever tried?

well look at the time, sure flies when you are having fun. I was hoping to have base mesh done and dusted this time around..but very close. Quickly made a couple of skulls for the top, they were just dynameshed spheres originally, tweaked shapes from last previous sculpt. Will do a hair test next once I have the base mesh done, and get the hair out of the way asap.

Starting to look groovy already, and you've lost the predator look too ;)

Worzel - Thanks, yeah it is coming along, I really want to illustrate my backstory to, but that isn't going to happen, maybe a little side project down the track :P

Evoboy - Cheers bud, I should have a good update after a good sculpting session on friday night.


Not a big update tonight, got a lot of work to do on production, but did manage to squeeze of a little hair test. Getting some Bon-jovi action going on :P
I was just playing around with the new fibre mesh in zbrush, it is a lot of fun and pretty straight forward to use which is good. The grooming brushes are a tad interesting but they can be customized, either way it is still a lot nicer than trying to do grooming in maya.

N_Dot - thanks man

Still got a bit of work to but should get there in the end. Finished retopo yesterday for all assets, andstarted to clean up the sculpt, being able to project previous sculpt on the new retopo mesh makes life a lot easier that is for sure.

Setup the basic shaders for the stone and the gold, still will tweak the lighting as well. Will carry on when I get back from school today.
