Welcome everyone! This is a topic dedicated to all things Statue related. Here I'll be answering all of your questions regarding the statue, the idea behind the project, etc, etc... This is also a place for disscussion and further probing my mind about things you might want to know but were not mentioned so far(and trust me when I say this, the stream barely scratched the surface). I predict this is going to be a rather big topic. Therefore, please start your posts as follows: "Q:" -if you want to ask me a question "I:" -if you want to propose a new idea (building sites, design dilemma solutions, materials, turning armour into a tutu, etc, etc...) "D:" -if you want to discuss an idea (quotation of the idea would be nice, so we know what you are discussing;) ) Colour coding is not exactly necesary but I might miss your comment. Posts that are not tagged at all, I'll treat like off-topics and most likely not respond. If you think there is a immportant category that I haven't thought of, please let me know so I can add it. "A:" -Answer to your questions. I reserve answer tags form myself. (If you want to answer my question or someone else's, use the "D:" and @nametag ) --- --- --- I've seen the stream yesterday and I've tried to note as many things as humanly possible while simultaneously watching, listening, going in and out of fullscreen, reading and writting. So if I've missed some of them you should know - I did my best. I'll now adress that bellow (using Twitch names if I don't know someone or the name hint won't pop out). @jeancly Props for noticing immediately. Eagle eyes on this one! Please don't cut Stiv in parts. The bottom part was roughly almost every free evening across three months. And the boots with shin guards... don't even get me started on this part... Scalling down will simply not work. It wouldn't look like the original in the slightest. Even with this size, I still wasn't able to give it a lot of details. Besides it will fit the world dimensions for sure. @Slushy_Bucket (I think) said: Go big or go home! -I concur wholeheartedly Would you really like this in colour, guys? That would take away a lot from the intimidation factor IMHO. Not to mention the difficulty. Don't think it's a good idea. To all the minions in chat asking questions about it's name. It has a name actually: Stiv Sentinel and The Temple of Bunny-eating God. It's also the name of topic on the forums where I posted it first. Final blueprints will reveal why I called it like that Stiv should obviously face away from the Lava Tower and everything else to be honest. (Do you recall LotR? It's the kind of border-marking sentinel like Gates of Argonath. Google it guys, it's awesome. Pointing it towards the tower kinda tells @Gopher to "stay the fluff away". It would have a simmilar effect if you put it somewhere in the center of the domain/city like Crossroads. Kinda beats the purpose of the Sentinel his pose.) @Dionyzos_ and @Hoothor know exactly what I mean judging by the chat replay. Whatever you want to be it's neighbour should be situated in the opposite direction than the extended hand is facing. The book floating above Stiv's hand is a Conjuring Tome. Stiv's a necromancer. I don't get where is this confusion comming from guys... Nether is to small to fit this thing inside. I was actually considering making Bill in two halves (bottom- cut off by the conjuring portal in the nether, and top- emerging from the conjuring portal in the main world. But for now this is too time consuming. Maybe after the Stiv is ready. @Quarico said: "Beat my own lava tower"....*snorts* -I'm gonna design you a Fire Stiv for this one @Gopher You should probably tell people there is suppose to be 8 of these... You know, like on the picture I sent you... A pair for each of four world directions. So we need 4 sites not only one. The material MUST be something that you can make stairs of. Helmet is layered with stairs to add more details. You can rule out any materials that doesn't support crafting stairs from it. Smooth Sandstone is one of my first choices too. It would go well with the tower made of the same material (that's why I sent previews in this colour, so you could imagine it better). Just no dirt filling, pretty please. There will be stuff going on in some areas of the statue. Don't worry about making eyes. That is already being taken care of (amongst other cool stuff). @Apocalypso said: Isn't the way the head's turned a bit unnatural? It's 90 degrees xD -Ivan, have you tried making symetrical head, turned at 63.75 degrees from square blocks? I can assure you, you don't want to ever find this in your job description... ;P @Apocalypso said: Can't you also include his internal organs? -Funny you said that... @DJFreakyB said: The portal should be inside the book, seeing as it has the Conjuration symbol on it -Guess what? @survivor2021 said: What about a magic orb in his hand? -One of the community versions of the statue was planned this way, although it's more like a fire ball. The one with the Tome is specifically designed for @Gopher to enjoy. The hight is circa 221 blocks. The place I saw as a perfect spot for @Gopher's Sentinels(this is from the msg I sent him): "MINECRAFT #47: Finishing the Lava Tower. In the first minute(pause at 0:26) I see the perfect spot. When you're on the balcony and looking at the Tower, imagine Twin Sentinels symmertrically on both sides of the tower, far away on the horizon(end of your view range). If you'd build it there you could actually see them without going there first to preload that chunk. Any other direction around your house is kinda taken or visually cluttered, as I've seen on the last stream. Additionally, if I'm getting MC physics right, you could glide from the Tower and use The Spell Tome as a landing pad, which would save you a ton of time. It's pretty hard to miss it (I think you could easily fit your house inside of it). " This is the animation of legs plans @Gopher wanted to show you on stream. It shows all layers one after another (building it would go in reverse. didn't thought of that back then.) It didn't work because I've set it for only 10 repeats loop, because infinite giffs tend to slow down webpages. This way it won't run forever in the background. Just open it in new tab and refresh if it stops. @Gopher said: "I don't want to pressurize him to much" -Well, that ship is sailed... I'm pressurized like a Russian submarine right now. ;D
So, I've been working on something in my spare time for quite some time now. You once said @Gopher, that you don't know what's next after Lava Tower, so here you go. [back view below] This is part of my little side project. Originally it was just a practice piece for ZBrush in which I was aiming to train my patience in working with very long and tedious tasks but I've spend so much time on it that I decided to do something useful with it I'll be posting more of this in this topic from now on, however it will take some time since this is just a head of the full Sentinel statue and I'm doing it when I have nothing important to do after work. The statue itself is not finished yet but the helmet is done, so I have all I need to make diagram plans of how to build it. I've took some steps beforehand to make it work (model is not one solid object- it's segmented so I can see individual slices) therefore producing the plans will be streamlined and much faster then making model itself. So here it is. Let me know what do you think of it and if you have any questions I'll be glad to answer them when I can. Hope you all like it guys. [back view] [sneak peaks of the statue itself]
