There is a man..
Who knows no fear.
He flies alone, to the enemy bace.
To concour the evil empiror and his army. To save the prisess and save the world.
He has weaponary system called “unlimited bullet system(TM)”
And nothing can stop him..

Oh.. and when all this is over, just when he defeats the last enemy, cops come to help him.

I drawed this at work with ballpoint pen.
It's the good guy's ship, with that Unlimited Bullet System(TM), Emergency exit, and a sking box. Everything that normal star pilot needs.

Perhaps that earlier idea wasn't so good after all.
My friend spesified this topic to me a little better that I under stood from the topics instroduction. So lets go straight to the core of this topic. Lets make this picture so Space Opera that you can't describe it better.

He is a hero in tight futuristic suit. He is like rambo, he doesn't aim, but he allways hits, and no one ever hits him.
He has a chick that looks like a model, is dumb, fragile, and exists only that someone could save her, and kiss her in the end.
He has BIG guns, that fires only serial fire.
He knows no fear, and he is the masculinity it self!

The coloring seems great so far, and the scene depicts the right sense of damage. Not much to suggest at this point though, its still kinda rough. I'll be watching for later versions.

bit too much like Blackarts' sketch maybe ? (the twin gun hero)

also , looks a bit silly when he's shooting random-like in the air
and the fellows around him are actually fighting n stuff

Peddy
10-29-2004, 03:23 AM
regardless of the random shooting of sky (which i admit, if i could, i would do and have fun doing it =]), the fact that he looks like tarzan atm, and the similarity to blackart's piece, its still a sweet render, and a solid concept from what i can see. lets see what you can do!

dloots
10-29-2004, 08:13 AM
Looks cool, I like the layout and think the shooting is cool as you won't always see the enemy in battle. Can't wait to see the end result good luck.

I tried to google with that Blackart word, but got no results what you might have ment. So could you give me a direct link to that page what you ment, so I could see your point.
I'm actually tried to make this look as much clishé as possible, so I'm not very surprised that it reminds you about some dudes paintings..
And I will fix those guns point to some other direction.

Anyways.. Thanks all for replys.
To be continued.

hey,

this is where the piece that squibbit was talking about is.
http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=178806&page=2&pp=15
I'm not sure if its too similar or not, you can make that decision when you see it.
i think its time to define the black smokey area some more and also the most distant background on the horizon and the black masses that are just sketched in so far. I like the color in the bottom half, but i think the sky might be too monochromatic.
great job so far and good luck!

Heh.. slow down, and can't wait in the same sentence. Make up your mind man :D
Glad you like.

Hillartsympho:
Well don't look very much the same to me, but..


Anyways.. To make this pic even more clishé, I could put couple moons up there..
Any other suggestions are welcome, that how to make it more clishéic?

Good work Petri.
I agree with Hillartsympho...when I saw this image, I thought I had seen this entry before...BUT that is no problem at all. I think your image has the same problem, the other one has...the stance of the man, shooting two guns in opposite directions with no expression on his face...it doesn't look natural. Try to make him scream...or perhaps holding only one gun with two hands. At least it would look more credible.
But don't get me wrong! These are just suggestions to improve your work, which is starting to look very good. The color scheme is already great...and I'm sure those clouds in the background will look fantastic! You can really make something out of those.

Keep 'em comin'

Yes, it is sad that he happened to make similar work that I did. The facial experssion is just a sketch, so there is going to be a grin or something on his face when I get to it.
But thank you for you comment, and suggestions, those really helped. Far more satisfying comment than "Whow" or "Cool"
Thanks.

the composition is working very nicely at the moment, a good number of the elements are pushing the eye to look from the left to right, but just be careful you dont push it too far to the right. i think if you keep the monster you had on the right before, the problem would be solved.

I gaveup the idea putting monster in there, 'cause they just didn't fit in. They broke the composition. Perhaps I will take them back, or make them look different to make them fit. Time shall tell.

Some thing bothers me in that face, perhaps the space between the eyes is too big, or something..
Edit: And one thank you goes to existence of fineart.sk, for muscle references.

but it's a shame that you flipped it, it was much better facing the other way I think for the viewer's eyes

A bit hard to see what that glowing thing is. Perhaps you should play with contrasts a bit more. Make it all a bit clearer.
It's also very dark on my monitor.
Nice close ups!

Great use of color and brushstroke - lots of movement. Be sure to keep that explosive quality.

But it might be that my eyes are too used to that "unflipped" composition. Perhaps I should continue painting it flipped, and then flip it back if it still doesn't look good.. But thanks for that suggestion.

looks like this is going to be a great pic , dude ! :thumbsup: Thanks, you're too kind :blush:

You could add a little bit of red to the highlights that is on his left. The The other gun could have a little bit of orange from the glowing thing to show a little form. Everything is looking very nice though. I really like the dynamic angle and pose. The textures on the ground is awesome. How did you get that effect? Anyways, I'll be checking back on this one!

Yes, those details are coming, when I start detailing, I rather do everyting rough first, because I don't like the feeling when finished things has to be removed from the picture.

I used PhotoShops default custom brushes. All I actually needed to get that effect was to choose the right colors, and the right brushes that made that kind of charcoal style of texture that I was looking for. I don't know how to describe it better. :hmm:

Very good picture my friend!

But i think that there is too much contrast in (maybe can you seperate a litlle bit more the foreground from the background). Use less black and dark colors!

Wait to see more updates!

This is a closeup of the girlie that I finally made. That pose actually turned out to be harder that I thought. Anyways.. I think this one really needs feedback from you guys and girls. What's wrong with her?

As regards the content I personaly prefer watching strong and self confident women who can defend their selfs. This relationship reminds me a bit of the second Indiana Jones movie.

Turning out nicely, as usual. The girl turned out nicely, though honestly, the way her arm is wrapped around his leg doesnt look very plausible- makes her arm too long in fact. You might need to work on that.

ymonkato

Blackarts
11-04-2004, 11:45 PM
as mentioned above the arm is way too long, and her facial expression needs work. She looks mesmerized by the purty light coming out of the gun. Her left leg looks like it's floating....pop a shadow on the ground underneath it.

Hi Petri.J, an action packed pic being developed here! Her pose did remind me of that National Lampoon's European vacation poster, but aside from that, it's looking strong, dramatic and operatic. On the right track then!

bakbek (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=87811): The idea of making this so dark was, that I can burst up some spots that I want. If everything is too light, those spots don't kick out so nice.
Moon Dragon (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=118293): Yes, it's just you :) I know what you mean. I like my sketches usually more than the finished ones. Though this one is turning out pretty nicely.
sidchagan (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=116573): Thanks.
Borro (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=27541): Thanks, I try :)
STARBUCK (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=81452): Same answer than for bakbek, but thanks for suggestion.

Fahrija (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=105510): I wish to stick to my orginal plan, and make this picture the most clishéic that I can. There for I don't see any reason to change this picture the way that you suggested.
Damn this language is hard. :)
sidchagan (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=116573): Fixed, thanks.
ymonkato (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=99443): I will, thanks
Blackarts (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=763): Fixed, how about now?
element5 (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=49635): Fixed, though it doesn't show in that update, so I'll post a larger pic later.

Tommy Lee (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=5321): Thanks :)
Speaky (http://cgtalk.com/member.php?u=33916): Thanks. I'm glad you like it.

Does anyone see anything wrong in the updated picture?

Edit: Now I won't do any updates to the girl for a while, because I belive that it's best to consentrate to the general imression than some detail. So I guess, I'll do the background next.

sidchagan
11-06-2004, 11:24 PM
That same problem with the way her right arm is wrapped around his leg is still there- the arm just looks too long. The elbow should be much higher up for one, with the angle its at, it looks like either her shoulder or upper arm, or both, extend farther than they should.

really really good work :)
wait to see more...

The ONLY thing I would say is your composition seems a bit too "classic" a great warrior with heavy muscles^^ and his girl nearly nude ^^ making war to save her of aliens...
i think it needs really more originality :)
and the composition is good but the angle of view is simple panorama...

IMO i would say "try to do something different of all those classical themes..."

Well the point was to make this as clishé, as possible. I even thought to put couple moons on the sky, behind the hero, but they just didn't fit http://cgtalk.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I thought to change that bg coloring, because that old one seemed so boring, or it's just my eye that wants to see something new.. Anyway, I think this is alot better, because now there's something to seperate that background from the foreground.

Comments are warmly welcome.

Hi Petri.J, I think getting the overall picture sorted first is the best idea. I know it's tempting to work the details ... but too soon, and you may find you need to change something quite a lot and it's a shame to lose that hard work. On the bg changes... I think it's looking a bit too bright and saturated behind the characters there. I would be tempted to redo the sky around them and the bit on the left, darkening it down again, as if the smoke is really choking the landscape. A strong outline helps the readability, but the blue sky there currently is intruding on the whole foreground. Now, the sky on the right with the ships hanging in the sky is looking beautiful, I really get a good sense of a gleaming break in the clouds and this does help balance the picture out. Generally, looking great! :thumbsup:

Now, the sky on the right with the ships hanging in the sky is looking beautiful, I really get a good sense of a gleaming break in the clouds and this does help balance the picture out. Generally, looking great! :thumbsup:
Thanks for your comment.
You are right, I should work on the overall picture more, and when it looks good in 25% view, then move closer. I will do that. Thanks for reminding.
It's a shame that, when I do some picture long enough, it just stops looking good anymore, and then I go and change it radically. I should trust that when it looks good, it remains looking good, and I shouldn't change that.
Perhaps I should keep a two weeks break from this picture, but I CAN'T! :scream:
I just can't keep my hands off it.
So I shall zoom back and do the background next. Bye. :D

Nice color! The scale of the landscape is well exploited I think. There is soething weird with the girl anatomy I think... Maybe the legs. What d'you think?

After this long break, it's time to continue this picture, or it's never going to be finished.
On the left, there's going to be some droids or aliens, that he shoots at.

Perhaps running aliens, so there would be more action in the pic.

Edit: I guess she could get really cold out there with those strings. :D

They look fine to me.. But if you figure it out what's wrong with her legs, tell me, and I'll fix it.
Thanks

Image is coming along famously....

my input on the female legs her right leg maybe extended with the left one as is behind his leg kneeling.... this would go with the flow of the guys posture and the lines of the image....hope that helps.....:thumbsup:

Now, time to continue this picture.
I thought to put more action in there to make it look a gigant battle.
Here's a consept of some ship.

This aint never going to be finished, if I change it so radically all the time, so this is the final composition, take it or leave it. Though if you find some error that come to your dreams, and you just can't sleep because of it. You could mension about it, and I shall phonder what I can do about it.
Now it's time for details.

Now here's a more polished version. That yellow shiny thing had to go, because it was attracting too much of attension. I know that girl still has mistakes in her leg, and the hero guy is very undetailed, but i'm getting there.

It looks really good now compared to earlier versions. A bit too 80's airbrush feel in it for my taste but otherwise brilliant. Oh and foreground is a bit too noizy also.
The sky is totally fantastic with those silhuette vehicles in front of it!

But to Quote one of the most evil antagonist in the world of scifi:

"Impressive, most impressive" :)

Thanks for feedback.
This image is orginal size cropping from the foreground rocks. I don't actually like very polished pictures, so I made details like this. And I don't think it's detailing if you just smudge things.
I did try to make things less noisy, but it just looked too blurry. :/

Yes that was my purpose, to make it look like old and clisheic as possible. So I'm glad that it looks like from the 80's :D

Time to detail the main character.
Now that I think of it, that pistol dont work there, it brakes the main idea. He should have two big guns in his both hands, to compensate some other part he lacks length :) (and to make him more masculine)

Very good picture, i like the atmosphere. Your clouds are exceptionnaly realistic, and the camera placement is very good. Perhaps you can added more détail on the body of the wiman, good work

Terve Petri! Looks very promising. I really love the atmosphere. Looks like you still have to do lot of work tomorrow. Btw. It's too bad that "Project Helsinki" is not going to execute; I really love the matte work you did for it.

Thanks for your feedback. No there's actually not very much left in the picture. Only that tree, finish the hero, and add some minor details here and there. But yes, it's shame that I left this to the last day.
And about that Project Helsinki. I'ts only on a loooong break. :)
I'll continue it now and then, when I have time from several other projects. Propably next things you'll see from it, might be somekind of "real" consept sketches. Those consepts you find on my webpage are just to put down some of my ideas.
Though it is possible if those pictures some day just desappear from the gallery, but that could mean only good thing, we got the movie sold, and we are getting paid to do it. But. While waiting that day.. lets do something else.. :D (Cause that'll never happen)

here it is.. finally. I would've still got 3 h and 3 minutes to go :D
