not really happy with a lot of this at the moment...and to be honest I really like some decent crit on it.
I will however keep banging my head against the wall until I feel it's acceptable ....or I am unconscious

Wahahaha I don't think any of the prizes here are in any danger from me, actually I'll be surprised if I finish, I'm in for the experience this time, and wouldn't stand much of a chance against you and a few of the others in the 2D section either Antonio :D

hahaha I have a nine month old son who seems to be getting new teeth at the moment believe me Jonny I no longer know what sleep is :argh:

On top of that with this sort of attention I am either going to have to come up with something totally kick ass or embarrass myself completely, the likelihood of the second is higher :scream: thanks for the votes of confidence though

@ Olli: don't suppose you'll get the chance to join in if your doing that challenge then ?

@PreatORiAn: exactly :D

@Olli: yeah I've been running over a lot of Baxters stuff in my head too. Good luck with the Olympian challenge all the same.

@Virtuoso: back at you, I am expecting more massive poly counts :D

@Atwooki: still got a bit of learning to do with that tool box especially If I get zbrush into this, but like I said to you before this is a good excuse to sit down and find out how things work. :D

cheers to all the rest of you too, really can't wait to see the stuff that gets produced in here, let it be fun :thumbsup:

flyingP
10-19-2004, 09:46 AM
OK so it starts

I'm sort of half way through sketching / thinking but I thought make a start on thinking the story line through too

anyway first concept, bit cliché but what the hell

home world Tobas of the Dorlan (names may well change)
The Dorlan race was one of the very first to expand into space, originally very aggressive taking what they found by other civilisations (who were thereafter eradicated..... they thought) and using it to help accelerate the expansion.
That was in the begging, 3 thousand years ago, now the Dorlan have become complacent/decadent their expansion slowed to the point of stopping, it has been long since battles have been fought and their fleet has been mothballed or dismantled..... but then space is big, 3,000 years later the remnants of those once crushed had found other expanses and have grown without the knowledge of the Dorlan they're strong, the haven't forgotten....and they're back

I'm sort of thinking of showing a scene of the first surprise attack on Tobas the Dorlan homeworld, at the moment I sort of see a huge monument to the earlier Dorlan conquests, in a cityscape, being hit by fire from space....with the odd small ship buzzing around trying to escape. I was also thinking of a large red sun in the background with some sort of ring around it also being attacked nothing fancy just want to show that this is a highly advanced technological civilisation that has expanded into space

and I have no idea if I'll be able to finish this (never tried anything like this).....gonna be fun trying though.

let me know if you think it's stupid :)

JamesMK
10-19-2004, 09:53 AM
For the storyline, I vote 'not stupid' :D

Seriously, it's got great potential - particularly the "monument engulfed in enemy fire" might very well turn out epic/archetypical in a grand way.... Go ahead, I say!

Make sure to include some actual mothballs too, I'd like to see that :D


EDIT - Oh, and you've just breached the 1000-views barrier... Feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel the pressure ;)

Like I said a start, and I'm not completely sure if I'll stay with it.
Assuming I do then I'm also still not too clear on the composition although I'd quite like to concentrate on the fleeing ship which is why I've cropped the monuments hands at the moment.

Anyway let me have it :D

JamesMK
10-19-2004, 07:34 PM
Whoa... Not unexpectedly, it looks really good. Love the tilted camera and the dynamics of the monument... The only crit I can think of is that the ship in the mid-right part could perhaps look a little more menacing (assuming it's one of the attacking vessels of course)..

....bastard.....

flyingP
10-19-2004, 07:44 PM
(assuming it's one of the attacking vessels of course)..

nope it's supposed to be one of those trying to get away

JamesMK
10-19-2004, 07:51 PM
nope it's supposed to be one of those trying to get away
Oh, my apololologies :D Then it's perfect just the way it is, that is, not menacing.

Panupat
10-19-2004, 07:55 PM
that's a monument o_O? I saw it as a sport athlete trying to grab that ball looking thing. Which was pretty cool IMO :D his pose is very dynamic and work really well with the tilting camera

flyingP
10-19-2004, 07:59 PM
that's a monument o_O? well the Americans have a lady with a flaming torch as one. :D

actually in the one hand he's holding a sun, in the other crushing a planet, it's still getting some thought :)

WazaR
10-19-2004, 11:36 PM
A truly stricking composition. I agree with you that the empahsis should be the ship, it plays on the contrast of size between the monuement and the everything else.

10-20-2004, 01:06 AM
Nice concept, really good composition. I actually though it was some alian giant destroying earth or something like that. It would be a nice camera shot for that kind of image. ( or is it already a giant destroying things? I read it was an monument so...

DimitrisLiatsos

Looks great! Good decision on doing it in 3D over 2D I think.
Not too many 3D spaceOpera pics around.
Yeah, it will be xtremely hard, but doable.
I'm joining the support group ;-)

All right, just saw your first concept sketch and already I feel like throwing in the towel :cry: I'll be watching this with interest.

flyingP
10-20-2004, 07:39 AM
@miketche: I wouldn't worry to much, it's easy enough to draw, I 'might' even get away with the modelling, but I have no idea how in hell I'm going to do the rest as yet :argh:

@Empy:
it will be xtremely hard, but doable
at least I think I should learn something from the attempt. :D

@DimitrisLiatsos: Thanks mate, me being in the 3D section at all is nuts, blame the Wabbit he talked me into it :D

@oshiroii: I can see I'll have to address that monument situation :hmm: actually I was planning on having it look a bit more chiselled, if you know what I mean, ie as if it ha been made out of a huge block of stone or similar, I don't want it too detailed, as I still feel I'd like the focus to be on the smaller ship, I just got carried away with the drawing :)

@rattlesnake: thanks mate, I'll see what I can do :)

@WazaR: thanks mate, I'm more comfortable with it knowing that someone else thinks so too :thumbsup:

@Steen:
diagonals are our friends.
yes indeedy :thumbsup:

Thanks once again for all the input guys :thumbsup:

it's OK 3doid that was just my way of commenting that it does indeed look a bit like one, this is just a side view and still somewhat unclear in places, I'm working on a few more perspectives that will hopefully make things clearer....for me as much as anyone else.

cheers

Looking nice man. I suggest some big motorengines on the side, or some big search lights (got me with the sub comparison :D) I dunno something to break up the shape and make it look less like a warhammer gun. I suggest the engine, check out Feng Zhu (www.artbyfeng.com/) , kinda simalar style :thumbsup:

not sure if this makes it clearer, although I feel it's enough for me to go with the modelling.
Just a quick colour test as well, which in the meantime I have decided I don't like, but it's also a starting point

10-22-2004, 08:16 AM
OK looks like I will be sticking with this image then, cliché can be fun too :D

@GeeNoc : I'll give it my best :)

@DimitrisLiatsos hadn't really planned to, at least nothing massive, I'd like to add a few smaller ones in the background but are most likely to keep those very simple, somehow I fell this has more story by focusing on the hip in the front.

@BloodTaster you too mate and I'm following your thread as well :D

@Virtuoso size ratios, ,naahh I never really think that far into it if it isn't necessary, whatever looks good.

@HieSpike hey I'm just as surprised, they are a cool bunch of guys in here though :D and I've already been over to your thread.

@jddog thanks mate, I'm watching your too :D

so and hopefully I can get into some modelling later today :bounce:


Edit: @Voutlooz you got in there before :D and thanks mate

DimitrisLiatsos
10-22-2004, 10:06 AM
Hmm...u are right ...it's just me dropping in that trap of thinking all the time BIG SHIPS and stuff like that...instead i think u are right going in a more focused and simple and please forgive my silly question for big ships and i must say i really like your design style so far...me thinks will learn a lot from your thoughts on paper....and not only !


:bounce:

duddlebug
10-23-2004, 12:24 PM
Hey Brian!! Ideas are looking good... i don't think you necessarily need to worry too much about the colours at the concept stage... you can do so much fiddling when you get them into 3D and the lighting could have a big impact if there's any strong colour casts.

I loved that concept drawing... any more sketches of the statue coming? Or any 3D on the way?

JamesMK
10-23-2004, 12:27 PM

Hey Brian!! Ideas are looking good... i don't think you necessarily need to worry too much about the colours at the concept stage... you can do so much fiddling when you get them into 3D and the lighting could have a big impact if there's any strong colour casts.

I loved that concept drawing... any more sketches of the statue coming? Or any 3D on the way?

some 3D is on the way, sorry I'm just not as fast as some of the others here :cry:

and yeah I agree totally with you about the colours, was just an experiment :D

Chug
10-24-2004, 08:56 AM
I think that the impression the 3D model gives you is because of the lack of details and tech stuff compared to your 2D sketches, IMHO. But I'm sure that those details will be added later in your modeling phase. I like your style, your sketches are really detailed, and it gives the impression it really could exist. Hope you'll be able to keep that feeling when turning everything into 3D.

Some satisfying design work in that ship - nice one. It does look a bit "small" but I am guessing that is because of the broad chunky shapes you have used and it will feel "larger" when you add the greebles and technical thing-um-ma-bobs.

That spaceship of yours really IS shaping up very well. Don't know if I mentioned it earlier, but it's like those details actually make sense and/or have a purpose rather than being general greebles.... As a whole, it seems very tangible... 'tis good shit.

The total lack of potatoes in this here thread of yours is rather disturbing though.

Keep on trucking...

@Mr. Glass to be honest I've been seeing a slight blimp caparison myself and as I was wanting this ship to look rather innocent it seems to fit. :)

@marcomaxbonaria I don't actually have Homeworld but from the images I have seen I have to admit being surprised by the comparison....don't suppose you have any images for comparison by any chance ?

@duddlebug "Dad duty" is next, my wife's at work today and I currently don't have any contracts at the moment, so I'm in full charge of my son today :bounce:

thanks dom , and umm no I freelance as an illustrator (storyboards, visuals for the most part ) and it's a bit hard to get out of your box once you've worked yourself into it, I have yet to convince (or 'really' try to, for those reasons explained before) clients that I can produce 3D work for there needs within the deadline, there is a lot more knowledge required for 3D as 2D IMO and I'm still learning, although having the 2D background does help IMO .......actually just wait until some of those in the 2D section this time start taking more interest in 3D :eek:

Good I feel I've done enough with this now, although there is heaps I could still add, fact is these angles are unlikely to be seen in the final image, it is nice to keep ones options open though. :D

Solid, dude. And the asymmetric quality is quite ingenious too if I may say so... it's not like you could stop me, on the other hand... just trying to be polite :D

It's smooth. It's elegant. It's made by a pig. Yay!

...u are telling lies just to impress us

sadly no, just storyboards, visuals, and the occasional piece of finished illustration for advertising agencies.....it's starting to bore the crap out of me too but it pays the bills :shrug:
To be honest though I am starting to get more 3D into the above mentioned thanks to Maxon's toon shader, often saves time on difficult perspectives and the renders are pretty close to my sketch style.... if not better :eek:

cheers

...about MAXON's toon shader..i have heard a lot of good words for it...although i don't know how it works...Man...with your artistic background u can eliminate a lot of bubbles... :bounce: ...

so thought I'd give some thought to the figure in the background which is basically, now all I have to do is find some way of simplifying it a bit o_O. Still working on the rest of the figure but I was wanting to stay reasonably close to the initial sketch.

Really great concept and model.

Will we see more than one of your little ship in the final image? I hope he's so good. He looks like a little hovering droid.

Continue your great work, can't wait to see more model.

should do, if I can hold the composition in the final render I am hoping that it'll attract the most attention... well see :)

Not only your taste, I agree with this observation. Now one could of course wonder how much a sane person is supposed to trust the opinions of the greek freak and a guy that frequently borrows his daughters doll clothes to dress up a stuffed bunny and take photos of it.

and I bet you are wearing a sports bra too :wise:

I'll think about it guys although I quite like it myself how it is :shrug: , apart from that it's another one of those elements that won't be 'so' visible in the final image (at least that was the plan) I'll take it into consideration though :thumbsup:
