    Youme edit:

    I've finished this request, you can download the model using the above link. Enjoy.

    Original post:


    I have an intel room contest undergoing in my clan, and I was hoping that someone might be able to model the Golden Idol from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Arc for me. If everything works as planned, it'll have a giant rolling boulder and all of the other hazards. Here's A picture with several angles of the idol. [​IMG]

    Additionally, please don't judge me as a mooch for the first post of mine being a request. :unsure:

    I leave you tonight with 1 hour's progress, my first attempt at anything remotely like organic modelling. I hope you like the start. I'll make sure it's got a nice specular material so its nice and shiney too.

    I may also experiment with doing a LOD model for it too. who knows what will happen!

    IMO, should be an idol of the heavy, but that's just me.

    Wow, thanks a lot Youme, that looks fantastic! I knew that sooner or later one of the 13,000 epople would actually reply... It's relatively small and is gonna be an intel replacement, so anywhere from around 20-40 units should be fine.

    that looks really nice for a first organic modeling try, youme :)
    especially the poly distribution is very linear and even. nice work so far !

    Here it is ingame, next to the intel for comparison. it's 21x17x34 with the intel at 13x39x45

    I'm going to look into a LOD model for it later so i wont dish over the files right away :p
    I'd like to release it properly, FPSB an all if you don't mind, since I'm very proud of it :D

    Looks good. I'm not sure how important it is to the poster... but this was a fertility idol.

    The pics A Loaf of Bread used doesn't show it well. Here:

    A golden civilian idol would have been hilarious.
