Thread: The Hammer
April 24th, 2006 #1
A new character I'm working on. Inspired by Sauron from the lotr movie and pyrimid head from Silent hill. Still fleshing out the body design but will stick with the helmet. Any C&C would be cool.

i like its design and the 3d model is sweet!
on a concept sidenote though (which youre totally free to ignore)... having spikes on the side of your head wouldnt work very well... the sidemovement is rather limited and even if he is flexible all hell do is poking himself in his arms.... how about attaching them front/back?

agreed on the practicallity issues design-wise. id say shorten the side protrusions, but make them thicker overall, so his head is like one big hammer as opposed to a big stick with points, you know?

concured with the hammer, i think it should be elaborated on, but man, awsome frikin possom design!! ah, when i first saw it the first thing that came to my head was pyramid head. : ) sweet metallic texture on the model!

sone_one Thanks! happy to here you like the design.I know the practicality of him moving let alone fighting with the large spike protrusions would be very hard but in my head this guy kinda just stands around and scares the shit out of people. He's not very mobile, just an odd verison of a "dark knight type." Also IMO this guys movement could be potentially very strange and interesting, also intimidating. Think about his heavy, yet balanced head governing his movement: side 45 degrees to side 45 degrees, swinging his hammer from side to side as well. I guess I will know if this works in reality when I rig him and do a walk cycle or something. Peace.
Rhineville : Oh yeah it does. I hate the sledge hammer looking thing that he is holding now but thats why its a wip. I will definatley do some concepts in 3-d today and try to blast out a weapon of more interest. Thanks dude 8)
'stoph I probably tinkered with the actual length of the side protrusions for longer then it took me to make the model. So, who knowns they have been longer, shorter, skinnier, and wider than whats here now , not sure what exact porportions I'll choose in the end. Right know, your crit sounds nice but I'll probably change my mind. Thanks though, peace>
Halos Chain Hell yeah , it will be elaborated on immediatley! That is the nicest thing you could tell me that this guy reminds you of pyrimid head cause him and sauron are my two favorite character desgns of all time. Silent hill the movie was an amazing visual experience and Pyrimid head does not disappoint so see it immediatley everyone!
I will update later today with new weapons and stuff. If anyone has any other input that will be nice too!!

Hi, i saw your concept and it reminded me of some extint people from Argentina, they are really weird looking, very of out of this world and i wanted to show it to you and the other people maybe it interests you, they are called the Onas:

Thanks for the link Chistian223 those guys are awesome looking. If I do a tribal type character anytime soon I will ref these guys for sure.
So just a little update, I finished my hammer weapon concept and I like it though the texture will be alot better. Tried to tie the character to the weapon best I could and ended up withh something a little odd but overall I think it relates to the character. I'll update with the finished greyscale pics and then onto color, and modeling the body.
All C&C is very welcome!

glad you fixed the hammer.
but dude the helmet idea is PURE GOLD! i fucking love it dude, i wish i could come up with that before you.
even though the design with his torso exposed is drawn betetr then the first left one, i think it is boring, and it just begs for more metal in the pic.
i suggest for actualy leaving the torso open, maybe with some big scar/rip/interisting thing/eyeball maybe, but put metal armor on the arms everywhere.
that would be brutal.
if u dont mind ild raw this character a couple of times.

Glad you like it so much, I guess that what's happens when you draw inspiration from Sauron and Pyrimid Head and get a little creative. I'm actually surprised how many people like this design. When I showed my girlfriend sh thought it looked weird. Anyways I agree with the open chest too, I know that the one I have now needs some spicing and detail I just havent had time to go back to PS yet. As far as drawning my character, I would be flattered, just make sure you post them so I can see. Peace.
So any comments about the hammer weapon?
