Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 6 - Battle on the Bridge

Ok to be honest i had not realized you posted the last 2 pieces... It is a shame we won't bes being these more often. These pieces and the stories embedded were actually quite fun to read. In any case my thought on your last 2 images: --- Ah machines! As you an tell by now they are exceedingly good...

Re: Comic for September 1st, 2018: Assassin Siblings, Catching U- Keith!

And now you've planted the idea in Keith's mind, if he wasn't already considering it. Well done Natani, very subtle play there. I wonder, we know basitins aren't really into thew whole "sex" thing but in addition to Keith's Western heritage there must be some urges they get, otherwise how would the ...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 5 - Final Stand

Part 6 of the 3D images. As mentioned previously, I wanted to try something a little different this time and actually recreate a scene from the comic. I've always considered Keith's encounter with Alaric on the bridge to be one of the most significant moments in the story so far, so I decided that t...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 3 - The Hall of Glory

Of course it is a compliment, if not evident by now I am quite a fan of your work! [...] It might be the perspective, in the "brace for impact" their faces look ok. Yet the officer "smile" looks like something a taxidermist made. But do not really now. Maybe the model simple does not work well for ...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 3 - The Hall of Glory

I mentioned how it look like you sculpted this stuff and photographed it rather than using 3d software to render it. This might sound a little gross but previous images looked like you sculpted the skeleton out of clay or wood and for the fur you hunted and unsuspecting squirrel, tanned its coat an...

I mean, they look intimidating af so I gotta oven that to you
Well I guess that counts as a partial success then, I'll take it. Difficult to make a series about giving basitins the badass coverage they deserve if they look like wimps.

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 3 - The Hall of Glory

That 3D Basitin looks like an Eldritch horror, ngl I'm sorry the new style isn't as appealing to you, I realise not everyone will like the transition to 3D but I think it will be better in the long run for most people. And now on with image number 4. Going back to the original style again this time...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 2 - Brace For Impact

That is an interesting piece. I get very gamey vibes from it, not sure you were going with that thought, like those good old ps1/2 rpg's from back in the day (not that long actually). I can almost imagine the scene you describe ending and then the screen fades and the HUD appears, some prompt show ...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 2 - Brace For Impact

The 3rd of the 3D images and another scene. This one a little... darker than the previous one (literally), the Hall of Glory, a great memorial to the fallen. The hardest part of this scene was by far the lighting and the flames in the braziers in particular. Getting them to look just right took a lo...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 1 - Shieldbearer V2

Honestly I thought this type of quality could only be achieved by professionals with a workstation level computer with 64 GB or RAM a Xeon CPU and a couple of Nvidia Titan V GPU's using proprietary software. Color me impressed, This is amazing! Also if you are gonna do all your "units" one way or a...

Re: Comic for 2018-07-28: Assassin Siblings, Catching Up, Pt 2

It's easy to forget sometimes that things that happened a long time ago for us (Natani's secret coming out) happened pretty recently for the comic characters. That was my first thought when reading this page at least and I guess it translates over to the comic as a whole. How much time has passed si...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 1 - Shieldbearer V2

The second of the 3D images and the first real scene! That's right, we've finally moved away from doing (just) character spotlight pieces. I would never have attempted to do something this complex in 2D so it's great to have the opportunity now. So here you go, "Brace For Impact", my favourite image...

Re: The Basitin Military in 3D: Part 1 - Shieldbearer V2

OK, first of all, the art is amazing! The 3D model is insane! I wish I had this skill... Thank you very much, I'm glad that at the end of the day even if you have criticisms you do at least enjoy it from an artistic perspective. Talking of your criticisms, as you have been kind enough to present th...
