Textured this model for the speed texturing competition - was a nice model to get back into the thick of things. Model, Unwrap, and Bake are by Richard Court.

Final Submission








Finally - Phew, what a ride - so relieved to finish... Good luck to those still in the race. All crits and comments most welcome.man i need to get me some real food besides cup-0-noodles and some serious Zzzzzzz time.

If anyone wants a look at the hi-rez 3k version - heres the link: AtomHawkHIREZ

Atom Hawk Final Uploads




This is the WIP Sheet i have to hand in with the final image - which im still tinkering with to get rid of any jaggies.

Atomhawk Update









Finally at the stage of doing the paintover, after hours of fiddling around finally got a color scheme going that doesnt clash with the other character or the alien... hopefully it'll all come together and soon... Only concern is that there might be jaggies with the robot guy - he's more or less one mesh, and at 3k you can see the polys... hopefully down rezzing to 2k will hide it... fingers crossed*... I still prefer the black and white version - but hell... what can ya do. All comments and crits welcome. Good luck guys - last day now.

Atomhawk



Another addition to the Atomhawk work - prolly overdetailed it considering its such a small critter... nonetheless...

AtomHawk Updates




Just finished off the color work, the texture was roughed in - its not detailed - going absolutely realistic was never my intention - rather a more hyper real and stylized look was what i was after. Added the war paint to give the character some interest - without it he looked quite sparse and uninteresting. If i have time ill add some more accessories to him to give the character some more depth. All crits and comments would be much appreciated. Cheers Guys.

AtomHawk Update




Got around to blocking out the concept for the Robot figure, its still got some detailing and cleanup to go, but i think most of the major forms are more or less where they should be.

AtomHawk Update




Got the Male more or less sculpted out. Needs to be detailed at this point - and some accessories added. Sculpt took on and off 2 days - used some 3dsk guy as reference. Gonna move onto the robot lookin fellow to sketch him out in zbrush - might be fun playing around with the new clipping brush set. Good Luck all!

Detailing Chosen Thumb




Decided to use this comp, and get a more detailed thumbnail down to gimme some direction to follow and avoid wasting time on unnecessary assets down the line.

Concepting for AtomHawk Comp



Was digging around for a competition to join up - seeing as my motivation was runnin a little low on account of Dominance war taking forever to get started and found AtomHawk. So heres a few sketches i threw down to play around with composition and work up some semblance of a story in my mind. Really trying to keep things as minimal as possible and work towards a drew struzan/travis chares kind of feel.
