[DONE] The Lost Book


(Theteaguns) #1

Heeeey, got into voxel modelling a few months ago and found this contest and figured I'd give it a go. Mostly been doing tanks and vehicles, so this is a very new style and theme for me. After spending a few hours yesterday starting, stopping, and scrapping three different ideas, I've finally settled on something I like.

Very WIP Tower:

Plan is to do a sort of overgrown castle in the sky.Will see where it takes me

Really cute. I think it'll look great when you add some plant life :smile:

Thanks for joining the Heroic Voxels contest and welcome on board :smile:

I have just given you one month of Sketchfab PRO - you can use it to add up to 20 annotations to your model.

Some more useful information to get you started:

  • Read the contest updates - they will contain updates on contest progress, weekly tutorials and more.. I recommend you 'track' that topic so you'll receive notifications (instructions are in the post).
  • Frequently Asked Questions are in the (you guessed it) FAQ topic.

Quick update, still no name for this project yet. Hopefully that will come soonish. Currently have a base house and tower, need to do some more detail and the rest of the scene.

Very nice! Have you tried uploading it to Sketchfab yet? I'd love to see an embed here :wink:

It's gorgeous.
I love how detailed this is.

What soft do you use? Are you gonna merge all your assets in an other soft like blender?

@bartv Thanks! I have but need to mess around with doing it right, still a total newbie at all this. Will mess around with getting it right once I have more of the house model done :smile:

@JackyBossey :smiley: Modelling in MagicaVoxel and assembling the pieces in Blender. Never used Blender until today so most of my time has been spent learning that.

Nice. Keep going it's really amazing.
Probable the best so far. (Until I post mine :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: )

Love it! Great detail and lots of character.


(Theteaguns) #10

I've been crazy busy and haven't really had time to work on this as much as I would have liked, but heres where the project currently stands.


(Elbriga) #11

@theteaguns I love this! I hope you can find time to work on it, it's really worth it I think :smile:


(Theteaguns) #12

@elbriga Thanks, glad ya like it! I hope I have time to finish it too.

Little WIP shot of the airship my adventurers will be using to reach the floating castle. Going for a cobbled together sorta look.


(Nomadking) #14

The airship looks amazing - the netting across the top is a brilliant touch!


(Theteaguns) #15

Finished the airship! Still have to do the island, my adventurers and some other small details.

EDIT: Going to try and get a WIP SketchFab upload of the entire model later today.


(Theteaguns) #16

Here's where my entry currently stands, really hoping to get enough time to finish it by Wednesday.


(Nomadking) #17

The story book is a great touch. Hope you get to finish it!


(Theteaguns) #18

Have, for now, finished my entry! Decided to call it The Lost Book, feel free to read the annotations to get the short backstory on it.

I had some trouble getting the lighting on Sketchfab to get quite how I wanted, so I may revisit before the contest ends and play with it some more.
