    Default Duke Nukem Forever Characters

    Hey everyone. With the closing of 3d Realms and Duke Nukem, I though I would post a few Characters I worked on while I was there.

    Octabrain:

    Duke Was kind of tricky. I REALLY wanted him to be more war torn and grizzled, But they wanted to keep him more like the original... Im thinkin about going back and beating him up a little...

    Its a shame what happened to Duke considering we were so close.

    Nice stuff, but.....

    Regardless of the studio closure, you still don't own the IP and probably don't have any legal right posting this stuff here. The right to first post goes to the primary holders, as does their right to sell off Duke, in part or in whole. Seeing as how you're "just an artist" and somebody else still owns the property rights, you're obviously stepping on some toes.

    I know that similar postings were yanked offline a couple of days back for this same exact reason. Shacknews only has mirror copies up for "news" reasons. However, they could just as easily be asked to remove the content and would likely have to comply.

    Once again, even though the studio itself has been shut down and you guys have been told to hit the bricks, what you're posting here likely amounts to a leak. That itself probably also constitutes a violation of your original NDA.

    ....

    Just sayin'.

    Um.. cookepuss what exactly does that matter to you? These characters have already been seen in the trailers and released screen shots. Why would you be worried about it? This is a Zbrush site, and Im posting zbrush work.. lets just go with that and leave the other stuff to me... yeah? Im trying to get a job and support my family, if youve got a problem with that... then I dont know what to tell you...

    marks sorry to hear about 3D realms alot of us where looking foward to that game. I am sure Epic will help you out

    I have to say my least favourite model is Duke himself but the rest are very nice and I am sure you will be able to feed your family again with no problem.

    One more thing alot of rumors are floating around the internet about what happened at 3D Realms if any of those are true you must have had a looooong time to work on your stuff so no wonder it looks so good

    All the best for the future

    Nice work marks Sorry to hear about the studio. cookepuss is over stepping his bounds, what is he the ip police? Not like you're leaking game source code or anything.

    More power to you marks.

    Oh yeah how was the hair done for the girl? it looks kinda cool

    LOL.. thats soo funny people think that.. I was at 3drealm almost exactly 2 years. a lot of the staff were under 3 years. I took the job because if any company on the planet needed help finishing a game, 3d realms did, and we ALMOST pulled it off. In 2 years of being there, we were able to take this convoluted mess and make it into a badass game. I wish the world would have seen it to realize how cool and fun it was. The team we had was fantastic. But, no one will ever know...

    Wow! Y'know what? I didn't say that I disliked your work. I actually rather liked it, small quibbles aside.

    However, I posted a legitimate comment. If you didn't like it tough. It doesn't you a bad artist, but it does make you a bad businessperson. I wouldn't presume to speak for any one of your employers, but would you want to hire somebody who can't abide by a simple NDA or respect property rights in general?

    You need to provide for your family? Great. Fine. That doesn't make you a special case though. Talk to the other 9% of the US population whose unemployed.

    And, yeah. Your life doesn't concern me. However, I thought that I might at least give you a head's up. It's called being a good community member. Hey, you wanna look like an untrustworthy person? Fine. You want to look like somebody who isn't a team member? Great. It's your funeral. This project may be dead, but this thread reflects poorly on you. The industry isn't so small that your action wil be easily able to go away unnoticed.
