    Chow 136 :: GOBLIN GUNSLINGER


    ROUND #136 :: GOBLIN GUNSLINGER
    DESCRIPTION

    Just what it says: A Goblin Gunslinger - however it needs to be an orthographic view. (Front, Side, Back). Greyscale or color. The rest is wide open.

    [EDIT] Just for clarification - the character doesn't have to an "Old West" or cowboy style goblin - so long as it is a goblin with a gun, we're good - type of gun and time period are open.

    pretty awesome topic, I havn't really decided on anything yet (even if he's gonna be a good guy or not) but I think I might be leaning towords something more comical and cartoony, I dunno.

    Sure - go for it, though the main focus this week is the ortho. So don't lose focus!

    Quick question, with orthographic views, do you depict the character in anatomical position?

    Ok, when I was looking up orthographic views, they seemed to be in anatomical position. Which is legs together, feet flat, hands at sides and palms forward. For the most part.
    I was wondering if that was what orthographic view was, or if they could be posed in front, side and back position. I saw a few of those too.
    If that's still confusing, I'll just wait and see what everyone does and I'll get it!

    I'm going to say yes, for the most part

    However, I am willing to defer to those who have more experience with doing ortho views than myself - so if someone wants to pipe in on this, feel free.

    ~Oreg.

    One question to clarify things:
    Gunslinger means here a wild west theme, or can it be a goblin with any kind of gun? The wikipedia entry of gunslinger states it's a wild west expression, but for me a bit more free interpretation would be better, that's why I ask.

    Hello!
    After Marama and watching Marko's DVD I'm feeling pretty motivated. The goal is to finish something, and here's the start of it. I'm always open to ideas and feedback.

    This guy used to be someone's sidekick before they got gunned down and now is facing some hard times on his own. He likes to think he's more sophisticated than he actually is, and doesn't realize that snacking on vulture stew doesn't really go over well with the posh people.

    Things to include:
    -Bowler hat
    -Bowlegged
    -Bow tie, more like a tied ribbon
    -light brown corduroy pants frayed from the knee down to look like flairs.
    -vest is a bit darker than the pants, too small for him, frayed in places.
    -shirt was white but is now dirty, has sweat stains, sleeves rolled up to the forearm (to hide potential forearm rotation pinching in 3D)
    -big triangular collar
    -nose has deviated septum

    Anyway, there's still lots to do, seeya.

    I like this idea! if you've read any Terry Pratchett, your description kind of reminds me of Nobby Nobbs. Go with it...

    It depends what Industry you work in really! Game design Ortho views are front, back and side, and animation are front, back, 3/4 shot. Or well that's what I was told at Uni.

    Yep And as far as I remember (took my technical drawing 101 course back at 1998) Architectural Orthographic views are Top+ Front+ Side + 45 degree top down view left or right side...

    That's fine - when I came up with the idea, I originally thought a goblin with a blunderbuss would be cool, but chose to describe the character as a "goblin gunslinger" because sounded better.

    So, it doesn't necessarily have to be an old west goblin - but it does need to be a goblin with a gun!

    friggen sweet topic. I'm in baby.

    Prepsage, like the pose and the attitude.

    AfroLaxMan: I like the head orthos but the pose of the figure looks silly. More of a runway model than goblin.

    So... I'm juuuuust a little curious. I have this pretty interesting idea here and need to ask if we can get away with "crazy modifications" to the guns the Goblin will be using?

    Thanks.

    For those a little stuck with the Orthographic views when it comes to design, the folks who did the Warhammer: Age of Reckoning concept art are gods. Taken from the site admittedly

    So here's what I've got so far... any help at all would be appreciated:

    - Facial features representing a hawk (nose area, but more so the eyes to portray "eyes of a hawk" / trained marksman)
    - A sort of 19th Century North American hat (saw it on Fable and liked it, sort of like the Leprichaun hats? If someone knows the proper name please tell me, it's driving me nuts!)
    - A boomerang gun, two of them actually. He's quite literally a gun-slinger.

    this one sounds fun ^^

    Can you hide who you are?
    Take a look at yourself
    Can you stop what will be?
    You think running will help?
    Can't give up on the past
    When the past never ends
    Now the dead that you raised
    Live in me

    yah - go nuts. These are goblins for Pete's sake. I doubt anything they have is going to be even remotely "normal" or unmodified.

    I've put together some thumbnails during lunch. One thing that I'm thinking about with the character is to keep him calm and collected. Most goblins (at least in D&D settings) are deranged psychopaths with a berserker hunger for destruction. I'm thinking that's what separates the the Gunslinger from the rest of the pack. He still has an apatite for destruction but has to keep his cool when he aims his guns. Also, I was toying with the idea of the goblin packing a giant six-shooter (a la Kid Revolver) and having it strapped either to his back or another Goblin's back. Just ideas, what do you think?

    Presage: nice update
