Got 2 ideas and don't know how to choose... :

1-Grand mother and his grandson :

The little kid like to overabused of his poor old grand-mother, she loves him too much and can't resist to serve him, but the pampered child doesn't hesitate to take maximum of profit...

About this one, i don't know if i go with many grandson/grand-daughters or only one, don't know also what kind of action they could do.

2-The hold up :

The scene would be dark, representing a conversation between the criminal (strong posture and face, dark clothes...) and the girl cashier (nice face, more colors, but really scared...)

Still WIP ideas, i'll post some concepts soon

Good to see you here Seb... I prefer the first story... with grand'ma... I think the second way interesting, but more common.
Well, good luck in the challenge :thumbsup:

hi
I prefer first idea too, it´s fresher, I think second isn´t really a master and servant, thought it will be very dramatic.
Anyway, good to see people working

Best of luck!!

Lemog : c clair :scream:

Okay, i'm still working on the main part, the characters design, looking some comic and photos for inspiration...

Thanks again, your comments are boosting me :thumbsup:

c&c are welcome

Sebastien.............happy to see you back for some fun.......

I like your concept,both the drawing and the idea......Lots of potential to be both nice to look at and emotional.....A fun and nice idea......I like the realistic toon approach too.....very nice going........And all the best to you..... Bonnne chance!:arteest:

I like the grandma concept, but mayeb the grnadmas face could be a bit more innocent looking (like Granny from Tweety and Sylvester). Poor grandma.

Another kind of compo i have in mind, only the grandma and his little b.stard...

I think this one fit well to the subject and seem more clear at the first see... tge other was a bit messy..? what do you think guys ?

Virtuoso
03-24-2005, 08:12 PM
I think he really is a bastard.....;) .......very nice and funny (a bit sad too) but a real interesting approach......I still like the one with the kids a bit more....but this last one does have alot of potential too........very emotional.......nicely done Sebastien......:arteest:

hey cipher ... i just found this thread ... i like the idea alot, and the characters are great (especially like the kid) ... on the last sketch i prefer the top one .. she is waiting on his response, a definite act of survetude ..

going good and looking forward to some poly's popping soon :thumbsup:

i like your second idea very funny :thumbsup:. nice exaggeration. i prefer the firts one

Lemog
03-25-2005, 12:21 PM
I prefer a little bit the last one...but maybe with a sofa more confortable...

...long years of servitude... that's horrible...

Perfect subject man :thumbsup:

03-25-2005, 01:14 PM
Thanks a lot guys, your comments are precious and help me to point in some directions...
Actually i'm between the 2 compo, i got a preference for the 2nd type but i want to add something... so i think i'm gonna try making a mix of these 2 compositions...

In the foreground the little bastard and his grandma (don't know which actions for the moment...) and in the background 2 or 3 kids making bad things :) I want to make this picture entertaining...many things happen at the time but there's 2 distinct groups...

Lemog : Yè i know for the sofa... don't worry, if i'm gonna make one the bastard's gotta have a sofa tout mou ...and everything for the perfect lazyness ;)

jddog

Here it is, i think this one fits well to what have in mind and what i really want.

The 3 kids are completly out of the world... The grandmas is completly out of service...

Hope u like it, nw i'm gonna put some colors to them and ENFIN start to model :)

Painting it to get an idea of colors and mood... So the scene will be quite simple about the visual aspect but as it's cartoon i'll try to put all my work on the character expression/pose...

I begin to work on the 3d grandma face, long time not having a good modeling session...

c&c are welcomes

Lemog
03-25-2005, 09:15 PM
We see your experience of life Séb... :D

All agree me, the subjet, the toon style... but only one thing, you must certainly try to find something better for the framing... I know, you have time to think to that... and you can start modeling anyway... good work man.

sonicstrawbery
03-25-2005, 09:29 PM
jddog and DaddyMack : Thanks guys, glad you like it ! i will be all my possible to make it in 3D now :twisted:

Lemog : "We see your experience of life Séb... :D" Really ?? Well i must admit...i'm lazy...but i never made work my grandmother for me...i promise... About the framing you're right but this will come during the character posing yup..

Ooo...I totally forget, thanks Lemog you made me think

TO ALL OLD PEOPLE, GRANDMOTHER/FATHER WATCHING THIS THREAD, I'M SORRY IF THIS OFFENSE SOMEBODY, THE EVENT ON THIS PICTURE IS IN ANy CASE RELATED TO REAL PERSONS, IF YES, THIS IS TOTALLY HAZARDOUS.

dude, like in the real life!
Grandmas always get angry when grandchildren are wrecking the place, but once they are all away, they usually miss them.
Hope you can make it good...

Reminds me of Mordillo which I like alot.

I'd get rid of the convex shapes in the face, most rolls of fat and sagging is convex.

Keep em comin!

sonicstrawbery
03-27-2005, 09:45 AM
jmBoekestein : Thanks, yup you're right about the sharp angles, on the eyes they seem good but i'm working on the ones around the mouth, it's not clean at the moment...

Virtuoso : Glad you like it, thanks for your support man :buttrock:

arlutik : thanks ! :)

Kanga : wow i didn't knew this artist, i made a search on google and found pretty funny pics thanks for the info ! I'm working on the face and body...cleaner update should coming ;)

Thanks a lot, more updates coming today :wip:

bealobo
03-27-2005, 10:48 AM
c'est magnifique!
hehe
the character is going on really well. I think the cartoon style matches perfectly, her hair is just hilarious, great!
I just find that the perspective doesn´t look ok, I think it´s too flat, maybe putting the camera at the corner of the room would be best, but anyway you can try that once you´ve got everything modelled.
I should start modelling so... á la prochaine.

Basic proporttions of the body...I made it simple for the moment to be more flexible when i'll make the pose.

have you rigged her with bones and so? or have you posed her directly with modelling tools?

the current pose needs some work to read more clearly in my opinion. I made a drawover , hope it helps a little:

A little update where i corrected the pose and added some pleats to the dress... i'm currently working on the textures, i wanted to use zbrush for some parts but i think i should learn it better first...

sonicstrawbery
03-29-2005, 01:50 PM
thanx guys

ninox,it's funny because at first those balls was just to get the proportions of the hairs but yes they're adding a cartoon touch, actually i'm playing with paint fx to see what i could do...

still working :wip:

jmBoekestein
03-29-2005, 01:58 PM
could you use those balls to "cut" the hairs? Shag has a function like that, a few booleans and you'd be done!

Very cool model btw. Damn it, I'm falling way behind.

Love it..wow...so much imagination in this forum....

Love the short torso grandma...great modeling.
Based on the final(?) sketch... I thinnk it could get very busy... my 2 cents

Thanx again guys, you rock !

jmBoekestein :Hey come on, you're not falling way behind, instead of saying such bu...sh..t, open photoshop and work on your compo man, i look at your work :thumbsup:
Hmm this shag function seems interesting but i don't have shag...i have no choice i think i should steal it to someone :shrug: ... no seriously... i found a great way to make the hair with fur, just attached furs to the balls and tweak some attributes, it looks cool...


I'll update today if granny wants...

Ok here is a first test, hair made with fur and only bumpmap for the face, i'm working on colors...

If someone could help me it would be cool, i got some trouble to render fur in layer with maya... actually this image is a kind of fake...let me explain, i use GIJoe in my scene since the beginning but i don't want to use it to render fur cuz it's too much render time and gives a too lighten hairs...I tried to put the fur feedback in a layer and the face in another but this seems not working... so how would you do to render in separate layers properly when you have fur ?
This image is the fusion of 2 renders tweaked in photoshop :) had no other solution for the moment...

Crits and comments a welcome guys!

SDIMIS
03-30-2005, 10:17 PM
How you tried to render with layers?Use background shader for the faceis a solution.You can turn off the reflactivity,and leave primary visability,cast and receive shadows.I think it will work.

yeray
03-30-2005, 10:21 PM
The hair this very well, exchange the bump map and to make deep the wrinkles ;)

she´s looking great! I suppouse you haven´t put any textures (maybe just bump) but I like her not to have make up, like she doesn´t have time for herself with all these little dictators around.

After several tests i got this...honestly i don't really know wher i go with this textures...maybe it's too much realisitic type for this cartoon modeling... tell me what you think, inputs are really welcome on this one as i'm still beginner on texturing, thx a lot !

04-01-2005, 11:50 AM
this is hilarious cipher ... haven't seen the thread for a few days .. love the grandma poses

as far as tex and bump and hair ... can't help ya .. never used maya ... but actually i like the untextured, sphere-head grandma ... gave it a real 50's cartoony look

i'll be lookin out for more :thumbsup:

smallone3d
04-01-2005, 06:04 PM
Hey Chiper...

Good job so far.. The UV is good.

The wrinckles have to go. See where the mouth wrinkles on the face and fo forth.
The bump then shows up even stronger on those areas that are "not supposed" to have
wrinkles...
I know the lighing is temp, but the main light is pretty strong might want to change it a bit

Virtuoso
04-01-2005, 08:34 PM
Hi sebastien.............grandma..............is fun.I like the concept as you know......As for the texture i would ease down the bump about 50%,lower the wrinkles amount and intensity 50 % too.....give it a more subtle or soft touch....make it visible to see but more gentle and not as strong.......................use the lights to soften the scene,less glare.more for the mood........It's just some tweaks...we all got to do them.....I'll be around.looking for more from poor ol' grandma......:arteest:

jmBoekestein
04-02-2005, 09:16 AM
Either ease down on the bump or go for extremely toony look and reduce the amount of wrinkles or have mor depth variation in them. It'll be better then, more of an effect.

bealobo
04-02-2005, 10:51 AM
I agree with that, ease the bump a bit and make some wrinkles more visible than others by means of the depth or even the width. These main wrinkles should be at the mouth and the eyes.

conundrum
04-03-2005, 02:30 PM
awesome stuff, i agree with all the comments about the face texture, right now id say it needs some work to reach the quality of the modelling. Which is certainly top notch, a great base to work from, you just need to keep testing out ways to get the right skin effect. Im still in awe of how you manged to put her in that position and still make her look balanced. Keep it up, i'm really looking forward to your progress.

The wrinkles seem to be placed in all the directions, and to not follow the lines of the face. It would be certainly interesting to model them, relatively deep, but not inevitably also many. The bump makes this aspect a bit granitic, but immediately doesn't make think of wrinkles. There is the impression of a mixture of 2 styles. In any case, your way of the toon family is very very good, I'm sure that next update will be wonderful... bon courage pour la suite :thumbsup:

Okay, i'm really experimenting with the textures right now, i want to really thanks all of you and especially jmBoekestein for having spend some time to point me on the right directon about the bumpmap :thumbsup:

I reworked totally on the face texture, now it looks better i think, more soft and more clean wrinkles... i'll send an update today;)

And the body almost textured...

In fact i\'m not gonna worrying about texturing anymore until i have my scene fully modeled with environnement and characters...then i\'ll go seriously in it, because actually i don\'t have my final lighting setup so i can\'t really see what is good or bad...

So next step...kids and living room ! :)

Hope u like it, c&c are welcome guys !

Hi Sebastien................Heres a good tip....at least I think so......for when you get back into texturing this ol' girl down the road.............

Follow the facial contours.....#1.......Using the "burn" tool with a 16 or so pixel brush diameter paint 4 or 5 vertical lines along the side of her face.......remember to follow the contours of her face........Thes lines have to be soft or light.................................

Now get the "Dodge" tool out....... and with a 25 or 26 pixel brush and paint real fine light spots in-between the cracks......this will raise the tissue a bit.

Now select the "Burn" tool once again............ and with a small 3 pixel brush in diameter and an exposure of about 15% paint a bunch of super tiny criss cross strokes to help create tiny cracks in the skin......Dont over lap these strokes....it has to be soft and gentle,real subtle.....

....................This is a start....a main step in the overall texture work for a very wrinkled person......After this you can give more layers to your lady individually....like around the eyes and around the lips etc.etc...Just ask.....I might be able to help you........Anyways.....keep it coming,and hope to see more as you move forward....really like the concept and fun factor........Poor ol'Granny.....:thumbsup:

your grandma's wrinkles are much better now. I like her pose and her brand new dress, we can see that she is suffering, poor old lady. May be you should add some gray hairs to her hair cause right now it is too white.

Here is what i got so far with all my elements...

The living room need still work, i just put the basic element in shape, need details now (sofa, window, furniture, objects...).

Need also 2 character more and finish the 1st little one...

The lighting is temporary on this one...

04-10-2005, 11:36 AM
thats coming along really well, the characters have turned out great. i know that you're in an early stage of compositon but i think that the sofa takes up too much space, and sought of detracts from the characters, i think making them a bigger focus in the scene would help. thats just my opinion though, im sure you'll manage to develop a good composition anyway. keep it up:thumbsup:

pigwater
04-11-2005, 11:20 AM
cipher .. this really. really is coming along good .. i love this last post showing the whole thing together ... tons of character with a great premise

one thing though is the hammock ring on the left .. it kinda looks like it's floating in mid-air ... well, just a thought i had

great stuff :thumbsup:

sonicstrawbery
04-11-2005, 03:40 PM
Conundrum : Thanks man, yeah you're right about the sofa but i think that this problem will disappear when i'll put the 2 other characters on it... btw, i have another type of composition i'm working on maybe i'll post it today... the grandma and the hammock guy on the right, the sofa behind and the kids disturbed cuz the grandma is in front of the TV...

pigwater : Thanks to you, no the hammock ring is not inthe air, it's just because there's no shadow casted with this kind of lighting...

Ok i'll stop lurking a bit on the net and try to work :) , thanks again ! :buttrock:

ha ha , fun story ! and I like how you approach with this cocept , modeling is nice , suit with your style , but I have some point about composition , now the perspective look strange, the wall look like 1 point perspective , but the chair make image look like 2 point perspective , maybe you have to chang angle of camera to make it more dynamic

Hi again cipher, this is really progressing along well:thumbsup: I'd reall mess this place up, especially around where eac character dwells. I think the hammock should have an exposed mount to the roof and more tension in its fabric. I really enjoy the comical sense of style you're using on this piece so far mate :thumbsup: Keep it coming

jmBoekestein
04-13-2005, 09:25 PM
Looking good Cipher,

I only think the camera angle could be more dramatic, I mean more depth. That would bring out the interplay between the characters out more. Something like tilting the camera a bit or elevating it. Putting something "alive" like one of those kids near the camera or shooting from behind grandma. Just a thought though, it looks like a rough so who knows where you're going with this.

Cheers!

JamesMK
04-13-2005, 09:42 PM
Looking good :thumbsup:

I do think you should aim for a closer shot, framing the characters more, and the environment less. And the way the hammock is hanging down needs more sense of weight from the slacker in it.

Neato otherwise, and the old bag has a great pose (it's a little hard to read her face though, don't know what you think about that bit)

spacesnail : haha totally agree with the bidochons also :scream:, thanks mate !

jmBoekestein, JamesMK : Thanks a lot guys, i see what you mean about this f@#$ing camera problem, i'm gonna work on compo today as i don't have course (weeeeee !), i'm planning to do my 2nd compo idea, 2 principal characters at the foreground and the 2 others behind doing bullshits ! i hope it will add more depth and actions, as i said in the beginning i want it to make entertaining, i don't want it to be boring...

Damnit, I thought I'd check in and see how you're doing, and you're in this pickle.

Maybe you can still finish though. :shrug:Well anyway, glad to hear you're going to finish it! And really like the progress here!:thumbsup:

Geez cipher, didn't you get a cgartist rule book when you started...
It's like...rule number 1... "A CGartist must not have a life outside of their projects"

It's a shame you wont be able to evolve the image any further for the comp... I feel for you, you put in some great hours there mate... I hope you're still going to submit what you have as the final for the comp.. Good luck with the tests..

May the force be with you

cipher .. it's a shame about the sudden time loss thing .. but this piece is has turned out really great .. so close to to being finished too .. it IS a shame ...

the clutter really boosted the scene up a notch .. and all in all i think it's one of the best in terms of concept and projecting that idea

will keep lookin in to see how this turns out

Sebastien........Common finish....You have done too much not too......Just cut out some extras you had planned......The image will still have the meaning and idea you have come up with,and the work you have already shown will get it's justice......You can finish this......then later add details and you're overall original idea and take this to the gallery.......

.......I think you are quite close,and with extra effort you can do it.......We can cross that finishline together in the last hour........I'll be here,hoping for more.....Best of luck to you.......:arteest:

Thought you were just a tweak and render away. It's too bad you can't finish this. I hope you try to with any extra time you have to finish. Best of luck to you.

No, Sebastien , this is really bad news... you can't stop now. So little left and it is indeed so promising. Hope you find some way of closing it - I'd really like to see this one finished.

Maybe you can't do exactly what you want for your final picture... but now, when I see where you are on your project... that's a real shame you don't finish in time.
Remain you not too much work... your project is fantastic with a true original idea... then, you must find time to finish :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: ... for you... and for us :thumbsup:
