Hi Folks! Currently I'm working on this turtle. I modelled it in 3Ds Max and painting the texture in 3D Coat :)

Cool!
I like the sharp stylised shapes on your turtle.
Is it for a game?
Will you use color on it?
Can't wait to see more.

The texture work is lookin really good so far. However, does a real turtle's rear area extend that far out of its shell?

Garagarape: Thx! No it's not for a game but it was for a small competition on game artisans: WoW Mounts. And yes, i'll colorize it, but first i'll do it in b/w to have good values. When i'm happy with the contrast then, i'll do the color :)
David & JavisF & Michalis: Thx a lot guys :)
Angelia: What do you mean with "How long did you finish it?" - it's far away from finish and i'll hopefully will finish it soon.
Randomguy_j: Really good point! I'll check this out! Thx alot!


I painted some wood :)

Worked on the turtle and this is the result. I'm pretty much done with painting the values and will start doing the color soon. Of course only when there is no feedback which helps me to improve the value study.

Very good workmanship and grayscale values for now adding color...

You know I start most of my 2D drawings in grayscale to get the values but not for some reason in 3DCoat. Don't ask me why, maybe by the end of the sculpting/ retopoing process, I just want to start throwing color on. :blink:
After seeing your values work, I am changing that...

That's whats me botters about 3D :) Often you have to do so much technical work that the 2D skills are just forgotten. That's why i try to think always in traditional painting rules. This is a wonderful PDF from Valve explaining exactly this. Any i think the transfered 2D rules to 3D perfectly.

Thx Pixo & Pezz. Yeah i was also amazed by the PDF. Oh and if you're interested in such stuff you should checkout the GDC Diablo 3 Art panel. Contains very awesome information too and also was done in 3D but from a 2S standpoint:

i like the colors, except the bottom color of the turtle.
The bottom of turtles is mostly the brightest part of their bodies,
and maybe the carapace is to monotonous with that one green color
:-)

Nice start for the colors. But I agree with Chingchong.
The "belly" part is too dark IMO. I like the way you use orange and subbtle green
on the fins. Yes, carapace needs more color variation.
May be good to try different color schemes on Photoshop.
Good luck with it.

Hi iLegacy,

That's a great looking model, Well done!!
With regards to it's coloring...your model appears to be similar looking to a "Hawksbill Turtle"..?
Here's a link that may help:
