dka120: I like the idea of only one 3D contest at the time! 3D seems to be more time consuming than 2D. Maybe this can result in more entries! ( 5 years and 2127 days ago )
billyboy: People, first thing on an entry should be the name of graphic software you used. Excellent SBS whitout this important detail. Should be a Nostradamus to guess what is the principal 3D program. ( 5 years and 2120 days ago )
dka120: I agree Billyboy! But what if someone happened to be only member using a certain software? The rule of keeping the entry anonymous wpiödm ( 5 years and 2119 days ago )
dka120: ...(whoops, wrong key)... The rule of keeping a entry anonymous would be somewhat violated. ( 5 years and 2119 days ago )
billyboy: dka, our 3D community on PXL is still very small. Its difficult to be anonymous. I think is more important for us to know what different programs we use and this way to help each other to improve our skills. ( 5 years and 2117 days ago )
dka120: ..sure, you have a point. But beeing the only one using a certain software leaves no one to there help. And if someone is, it's still easy to recognize the softwares name of the function if the SBS is detailed. ( 5 years and 2117 days ago )
whiteshade: Cnnt log onto forum, can someone tell me why this has been extended?? ( 5 years and 2114 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @whiteshade, all 3D contests now run for two weeks, giving more time for better modelling and custom texturing. ( 5 years and 2112 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

I wanted to do a Roman helmet, so given what I know, i browsed around the web, looked in books, Anway I found this site: http://www.gunsandswords.com/roman-centurion-helmet.html.
This is where I got my inspiration. (5 years and 2126 days ago)

A tribute to the Mark Anthony helmet entry by *** :)

I wanted to make something looking like the helmet/mask in the movie Gladiator, (Ridley Scott 2000). I didn't find any blueprints or good pics for reference, so i improvised my own version. The helmet part is spline patched togheter and the mask is sub patched. No Photoshop post processing.

Edit: Added spikes as details to the helmet and modified the grass. (5 years and 2121 days ago)

Made in C4D entirely.
No references, no blueprints, just my imagination :-) (5 years and 2127 days ago)

Couldn't find a good view to display this helmet, so I modeled and arranged it(them) into a scene instead.

As always - it's better viewed in Hi-Res.
