Default April Challenge - mtmckinley - MOD

Hey, guys!

Hopefully I'll find the time to work on this. I've got a pretty cool idea, I think, and just need to get it sketched out.

Once again, I'll be going low-poly, but this time giving myself a 1000 poly limit! heh heh heh

Well, my original idea didn't turn out as good as I'd have hoped, so instead, I think I'll model the guy I found in one of my art books. The (crappy) sketches are just for modeling purposes... I'll mostly be looking at the original drawing.

This one's gonna be quite a doozy if I can pull it under 1000 tris!

Well, I'll tell you, but no one go and steal it, cuz I might still do it. I'd much rather use my own ideas. Just gotta get it working on paper. lol I've done about 3 or 4 sketches and not liked any of them.

My original idea... A Demon Nazi Warrior! A killed Nazi from WWII has become a demon minion of Satan. mwa ha ha!

Stinkin' Nazis...

I like your origanla idea very much.. what you had started is also very nice. a demon nazi is a very intreging idea. steal it.. heck I'd rather help ya with it.. mind if I draw up a sketch or to ?? just for you ? or would you rather go this idea alone ? I understand if you do.

oh wow a demon nazi is a wicked idea! It rings a bell actually, im sure ive seen a similar drawing somewhere. Anyways, this is one model I cant wait to see, if u choose it that is - especially with a 1000 poly limit! Good luck Mike!!

here are a few of my more flesh-ed out Nazi demon ideas... feel free to let me know your thoughts.

How about a big, golem-like Nazi demon?
