    Talking Mock up of Qirex and Feiser



    Dear Sir, WipEout Zone members

    My name is dark16, a student of a graduate school in Japan, and I am a big fan of WipEout XL / 2097.

    I have been trying to design the 3D images of the planes Qirex and Feiser that appear in the opening movie. I looked for graphical information about them in the internet, however, I could not find any useful information and a detailed images that would allow me to design them in details.

    So, I am writing to ask you if you would be so kind to send me any drawing or iconic document that would allow me to recognize their shapes (specially around the cockpit and rear view, engine)? And if it is possible, would you mind introducing me to somebody of the Psygnosis Company that was in charge of the game?

    I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience and the trouble this has caused you, but it is a big dream for me. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    dark16 (Qirex-freak).

    Welcome to the forums, mate.

    Regarding your question: you probably get the most information out of the intro itself frame-by-frame. Download it somewhere (www.ign.com or www.gamespot.com for example) and try to find the shapes. I know they don't have the best quality. If the quality is too bad for you, you can still record it from your PlayStation (if you computer's video card is good enough to do so).
    But don't expect to get it in a greater resolution than VGA.

    The Quirex should be the hardest part cause they're just rare informations about the rendered craft used in the intro movie.
    In terms of intro movie's Feisar you have more luck: the ship uses - as far as I can tell - the same model as the rendered crafts for the original WipE'out'' did just with another paint scheme.
    I attached a few images for you that may help you there.

    01
    02
    03
    04
    05 (should be available in the internet in higher resolution. Google should help you there cause it's the WipE'out'' cover)

    And then the Feisar is also on the backside of the 2097 manual.


    Good luck, pilot

    Smile Thank you for reply

    Dear, Mr.Lance

    Thank you for your prompt reply for my misstake. This is to reply to your response. And I am sorry.

    Anyway, I think that your avatar is origenal sketch of ICARAS in WipeEout3.
    Do you have some skechs of Qirex of WipEout XL/2097.

    I would like to trying to make the 3DCG images and Mockup of the ships Qirex and Feiser. About Feiser, I got many splendid images from Sausehuhn, he/she is forum member. I think possible to make 3DCG and mockup of Feiser.

    However, I could not find any useful detailed images about Qirex.
    If you would be so kind to send me any drawing or image that would allow me to recognize their shapes (specially around the cockpit and rear view, engine)?

    I am terribly sorry for my misstake.

    My avatar is from an original concept sketch made by a member of the design team for Wipeout 3. It was made available to the public along with some other concept art on a limited CD. Our member Aka-Sho bought a copy of it a few years ago on E-bay and uploaded it online for the rest of us. It contains no sourcefiles to work from, but just illustrations/renderings. I don't have it on this computer and my old main harddrive, which I think has the file on it, is failing. Dammit. I'll have to be very lucky to retrieve anything from it.

    Dear Sausehuhn,

    How thoughtful of you to send me the splendid images for my question. And, I looked your sketch, that?s very cool. Your good taste showns in the skech you made. I think possible to make 3DCG and mockup of Feiser by your Feiser images.

    However, I think that Qirex is harder than Feiser. And I will try to capture images from movie file.Thank you again , and I do hope you , I will be able to show you my mockup and images.

    If you permit me to send image of 3DCG modeling, I would like to show you my image, and Please tell me your suggestion.

    -------

    Dear Lance,

    Thanks a lot for your polite reply.

    About avater,
    It?s a matter of regret that. I will try to ask image to Mr. Aka-Sho.

    Aka-Sho rarely visits here, though I did see him here a few weeks ago; he does have one of the early websites devoted to Wipeout. Here is the link: http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconVa.../7230/wipeout/
    Luckily, it's in Japanese, so you should be able to navigate the site easily. It seems to be still active, or at least still kept in existence.

    This website looks good, I've favourited it.

    I think that this website is probably going to help you alot. Apart from the fact that Feisar is the mascot, the fact that it's body shape didn't change for quite a while makes it easy to find pictures as resources. Qirex are alot less obvious.

    Good wireframes you have there. They could indeed help with the Qirex.
    But keep in mind that 2097's ingame-Feisar model isn't the same as the model used in the intro movie - so that wireframe won't help you much there.
