Life Virus by AtelierJordan Life Virus by AtelierJordan
It's the final boss from Megaman Battle Network 1! It's the only one in the series I didn't play..

This is inspired from the Polycount contest that's on right now, to make dioramas that look like they're from old games. Meaning, this model is super optimized!

Maybe I'll complete the whole diorama soon. Please excuse my inability to make decent animated .gif images..

funny thing, the 1st one is also th one in the series I didn't play either. Gosh, the maps were so confusing xD (my favorites were BN5 Colonel and BN6 Gregar, which ones were your favorites in the series :3?)

I only played BN1 recently on the WiiU eshop.. It wasn't a bad game but some parts made me want to die (elecman and colorman stages..) I gotta say that my favourite ones were 2+3, I love Style Changes! And those were the ones I played net-battles with my friends at school, so good memories. I still need to complete 6, for some reason I stopped halfway and never went back to it T_T

Isn't the Life Virus supposed to have 4 hands, (2 on each wrist).

That's Life Virus R that has 4 hands, the last boss of Network Transmission. In the GBA game he only has 2 hands!

Unfortunately the contest ended quite a while ago! But it was about modelling scenes from games with a very low amount of polygons. You can see all the entries here: www.polycount.com/forum/showth…

1252, I was trying for it to be under 1000 for a contest, but that was pretty much the minimum while still keeping the form.

It's really nice. I'm doing some viruses in low poly too, right now (currently working on Swordy and Billy), any tips? Especially on how to make amazing textures like that. Thanks!

Oh, nice! I always loved the Swordy design. I remember there being a badass version of it in MMBN5 too, "Bladey" or something? As for modelling low poly, there's a few things you can do to make a model look retro:

- Use a self-lit material. No shadows apart from the ones you paint on yourself!
- In whatever modelling program you use, turn off AA and texture filtering. This is what gives the crisp, pixelly texture.
- When texturing, work at a high resolution and scale down.
- Sometimes, adding a very subtle "noise" filter can work wonders.

Hope you make some cool looking stuff!

Bladia! I'm going to model that one too sometime.

- Check
- I have no idea where to do that in Metasequoia and bothers me lik hell
- Ohh, that's a good idea, I'm doing it the pixel art way since that's really what I'm comfortable in, but I get the same effect
- I'll try that some time! (it didnt work since the resolution of my texture was disgusting low (for the main body))

Here's a preview of what I got so far:

Thanks for the tips!

Wow, I didn't think people still used Metasequoia these days! It's a shame about the texture filtering not being able to be turned off, it's like the best thing. I actually created the texture for the Life Virus at 1024 res, and it didn't look retro at all until I turned texture filtering off and scaled it down to 256 (hand texture was 128)

HeatPhoenix Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013
I figured out how to turn it off and it's turned off in that screenshot, all the textures combined are about 250x250 or so but all split up in separate files since I really messed up the uv maps, haha. 
Metaseq is getting a version 4 this month actually!

This is so great.

If you have the money, but MMBN1 from eBay. I had the original when it came out (traded a kid on my street for Donkey Kong, lol). I beat this boss on Christmas Day, many years ago...thank you for this!

Just over 1k tris! It's so low it doesn't even have an underside, just a hollow ass.

Beating the Life Virus is easier than making .gif images of him. lol. XD

Awesome job! Life Virus always had the best design of the final bosses and your design is no different. ^w^

I would love to see a 3DS Megaman Battle Network collection... so just so you can do a 3D ShadowMan or NumberMan.

Actually due to his concept art I saw a while back, he DOES have legs. O_O And I'm thinking the legs would be hidden by the 3x3 panel, but visible when you turn the entire 3D model!

mega man battle 1 was pretty hard at the end, the bosses were hard to find like shadow man. I think part 2 was the best. the chips were more easier to obtain than in 1.

2 was my favourite too, that game was crazy huge and pretty tough! 3 and 5 are up there too, even though 5 had that weird board game stuff..
