Hey to all,

Came across this gallery here: http://j-century.deviantart.com/

I'm not sure what is going on with the Soul Calibur characters as well Enzio and Resident Evil characters, but there it goes, if anyone wanted a heads up as to their work being ripped off...or something.

The reason I'm bringing this up is because I thought Enzio was modeled by some talented bloke at Ubi in Montreal, and not by someone in Malaysia.

    Interesting, the person does claim to ripping models and changing them for rendering.. on some of them. On others there's no info but for some he claims he makes them, sometimes makes them in a day, sometimes 2 if it's a complicated model. Only uses 3dsmax and photoshop, says he has no knowledge of ZBrush. Says some of them are made as a team though..? On one model it says: Polys : 179,167 Verts : 99,469 256x256 Diffuse, Normal and Alpha Map.


    Also has some strange responses to comments like:

    "how many polygons/tris?"
    "I think It's quite much, I didn't notice the polygons."

    "Please make a tutorial . You did it really fast ! Please !...."
    "LoL I haven't reached that level yet, dude."

    "a quick question, is it rigged? eek.gif"
    "What mean rigged?"

    "what modeling technique do you use?"
    "Modeling Technique ? What did you mean?"

    Interesting stuff to look at indeed. Mind = blown. The thing is that for some of them I could tell that they weren't ripped from a game, but then where else does he get them from?

    Totally from MVC3. This too. And yes, he is even crediting Rexil as the original artist as that's the art thief we were discussing not too long ago.

    It's Rip Ahf Baby!

    I know all my BloodRayne 2 art has been ripped.

    I personally don't care. Technically the art doesn't belong to me and I have all the source files should I ever have to prove that I modeled it one day.

    It's fun seeing what they do with them.

    This kind of rippers are everywhere :D, there are also those that plays with our work, aka frankenstein style LOL and that's worse.

    This is not an artist, just a fan of games ripping their content because he loves it. There are communities specialized in ripping the content of Unreal Engine games such as Tera, or Blade & Soul.

    Deviant should not tolerate this kind of things, but if you look better, that site is full of stupids and arrogant kids with too much ego, so report is the best solution. They think the internet is so huge... and their actions will always be noticed lol

    Wanna kill his moral? report him massively. He will be surely banned.

    it doesnt really matter. From what I can see is that anyone's art gets stolen or could get stolen and be changed for some other project if think about it.

    for example:

    Thief = Assassin's Creed

    its funny he has 102 models in his devian art page, he is 24 according to his facebook page. lets say he is incredibly talented, has all the time in the world and needed 4 weeks for each model, that would take him 8 1/2 years of modeling without a break xD so what he wants to say he started with 15 1/2 all those projects? when did he started learning? with 11? mega lol

    this definitely made my day xD

    Not that he did this, but maybe one could get a polycount that's so high by taking the 256x256 texture where each pixel is a different colour, and then unwrap each texel onto the texture. Basically, kinda like polypaint, except by unwrapping to a unique colour on a texture rather than actual painting.

    That'd work, right? :P I mean, you'd have to be crazy, but it could happen. <_<

    Yes you should, but if he uses Daz, than I exactly know where this fuckin epic modeling and texturing is coming from. We dont have to kick him in the balls and tell him that we know who he is. The entry level art test will do it for us.

    Besides I dont know if he cares much about your comment. =/

    I had someone steal my artwork while I was in school.

    Problem was we were in the same class together when he showed "his" art work.

    I never felt so proud and laughed so hard hahah. He got kicked out suffice to say X)

    I know that you guys rarely read my post but...

    http://www.daz3d.com

    This is where he gets his models from, guys. He changes them a bit and pretends that he modeled them.
    there are many free models on that site.

    Its an ok approach to start out in modeling, but you lose out on many things. Such as: poly count, texturing, its always fun to see how the model was made and textured.

    The idea is that you download the model and break it down to study it.
    He alone doesnt do shit like we do. But there it is guys. With that in mind, if you like to waste more time discussing him or trying to explain that he isnt on the right track, sure, go for it.

    I don't think anyone really cares that he's doing it. Not like he's fooling anyone who matters industry wise. It's like he's playing with digital barbies. Except there's a whole community of people who do it. That are grown men. And probably haven't shaved in a while.

    Well it's quite obvious for everyone that these guys haven't modeled, textured, rigged and posed all of those models. The only thing we can do it to expose them to the original creator then he/she can decide what kind of action they want to take. I don't really mind people looking at others people models, posing them, doing their own thing and then take screenshots of it. As long as they don't distribute them.

    This one is not an art thief. This one is just a kid who downloads finished models from Daz 3D's website, modifies it a bit and claims that he created it to impress the girls.

    We are just making fun of him for doing so. <.<

    I guess it depends on where each of us drawes the line for "theft". :) I tend to do it when you try to take credit for others peoples hard work. BUt yeah, it's not that bad, it's way worse if you have others peoples work in your portfolio and are getting jobs for it.

    Aye, thats a pity. Whatever happened to the art test for entry level 3d modeling artist everyone speaks of I wonder.

    Sites like daz or turbosquid allows you to download the model, and do whatever with it, because the artists of those models put it there for either giving it away, it selling it with a reasonable price.

    Although, those artists should worry about kids like these, because those models were supposed to be used as ref, or testing game engines. Mostly.

    I know i'm not industry quality yet but i really just wanted to break hit jaw when i read his last comment. Mostly this part'
    Are you feelin' jealous or being unhappy because I can use other people's models but you can't?

    Lol, I added abit less harsher comment on it (dunno if he deserves it) but hopefully they'll understand... 24 is a mature age right? D:

    Anyways I don't think there's alot of models from a western game, mainly Japanese ones. Which is even more aggregating, since the chances of the original owners finding out their work have been stolen on a foreign website is very rare. :/

    lol.

    To quote one of his posts:
    "Hello overlordorochi, good question. I made them from scratch and I usually will upload some WIP in my profile. Some of the texture I use printscreen to get the picture, and edit with PS."

    So he can cut out the "read description properly" shit, he's tried to make them out to be his own and now he's caught out and trying to cover his ass.

    Wow, the models that he posted there are directly from known games. I dont see him covering his ass, but hoping to get away with this rip off. Now I see that the art rip off has gone too far, even for the internet standard.

    God, ok now this is obvious. People should start posting his work to the actual artists and see what they'll do to him.

    I get the impression that this guy's native language isn't english, and he's not using the terms "model" and other stuff the same way we are...

    I also don't get the impression that anything he does is going to significantly affect anybody who CAN make stuff like that.
