Notes:
A Roman Gladiator I modeled, textured, and lit. I decided to create a Gladiator because you get to create both anatomical detail and a lot of fun and interesting props/clothing.

Fantastic work. The difference in shaders and textures really brings the image to life. Unfortunate the image quality is suffering from compression or the 3DT attach system like Sathe said.

now this is a piece of work details too die for its simple bold strong presence nice eye candy clean finish, nice blend of amour & cloths very strapping it needs some blood overall well done

Hi, superb model and lighting. I'm fine with the hair, we are all different, but you could use some more subdivisions in the "crest" of the back of the helmet, there are visible edges. It's my only crit. Really good job.

Wow guy!

This is amazing man... I think the hair on his chest
is a bit weird.

Very impressive.

My only critique would be the body hair: it looks too thick, and the chest hair seem too short as if it has beencut and shaven, and the leg hair seems a little too long

Nice, excellent peice of work. Are you planning on placing this character in set? That would really finish it off!

Very, very nice work on all the cloth, metal, and leather materials. Chest hair on your close up front shot looks a bit weird, though not so bad on the further away shots.

Thanks everyone for the comments and feedback.[B]Buzzy[/B]: Yeah Im kicking myself for not spending more time on the hair, that's been my biggest critique. Later on I do plan on re-visiting this guy and I'll make sure to get the hair right. [B]lucashug[/B]: Haha you got me. Jean-lon Grme painting of the Gladiator first got me inspired to do this piece and stayed as a main reference image. I do plan on re-visiting this guy and doing a version of jean-lon Grme [URL="http://www.flickr.com/photos/wallyg/1391376617/"]sculpture of a Gladiator[/URL]. I think it would be fun to make the guy being held down by the Gladiator :haha: Thanks again.

Wow, this is really fantastic. I absolutely love his armor!! Brilliant work.I don't like to lavish artists with praise without giving some critique as well, so here goes.I agree that the body hair definitely looks odd. First, it is a little too "fuzzy." It should lay against the skin more and not stick out as much. Also, as it thins out, the hairs should get thinner and lighter.Anatomically he looks great. His hands look good, but perhaps a little..."mushy"...i cant think of a better word...they could use a little more bone structure and roughness (this is a man who fights for his life everyday). His face is good... his expression looks smug, but a little lifeless. He looks like he is posing for an old-timey photograph (where you had to stand still for several minutes), which i suppose is good.Anyway, this is a really great piece! I hope to see more of your work on Threedy!!Warin - I think if you attach images that are too big, it auto-resizes them, but uses some horrid sampling that demolishes the quality. I remember seeing it happen before, so I always make sure my images are small enough to avoid being resized. (and size on disk != filesize)

[QUOTE=Sathe;820086]Pretty epic!, it's a shame Threedy's attachment system destroys the image quality though. Is it impossible to fix this cause it's been like it forever :/[/QUOTE]Ohhhhhhh this is not good then. Can you please give me more details how the sytem destroys its quality and how you think we could make it better? I will then know who is the right person to pass the message on to...Thanks! :DWarin

Thanks everyone for the feedback! [B]throne[/B]: Yeah that seems to be the general consensus about the body hair. I'll have to fiddle with it a bit more.[B]hulahuga[/B] : I included some wire frames for ya. This was definitely not ment to be a game model :)

Overall it's an amazing model, but the chest hair placement is kinda weird.
