thanks....

i've got a name, well a temporary one....

'Point of impact'

more details soon.....and probably a sketch considering i can't find decent enough pictures to suit my cobbling....lol

first bit of modelling in on the eiffel tower, only low detail at the moment

EDIT: i have posted this first because for some reason whenever i try to upload my concept sketch it tells me i have an error in my SQL syntax....wierd.....but heres my concept in words :)

it's in the near future (next 20-30 years) in france, theres a war going on (possibly war on terror still) and half of france has been levelled. Most of the city lives in a tent city erected in the shadow of the eiffel tower which has been propagandised and vandalised. A plane is just about to hit the eiffel tower about half way up its height.

The whole image is going to be done so it is as though the picture was taken by one of the refugees on the ground...

hopefully things will come together quickly and you guys will get more of an idea

Just a quick throw together of what i'm going for as a finished look....

of course it will look a bit better than this...lol

Like the concept Paul.

I like your concept. The eiffel tower will be tough to model. good luck!

thanks guys, i'm thinking with the plane hitting the tower that I'm going to actually have it already hitting it. This way I get to play a bit with explosions and deforming and just general breaking stuff....

this is my first challenge i'm making a serious attempt on....so i just hope i get it done.

Thanks guys...

I'm taking a small break from working on the tower and I might move onto the plane for now just get the basic look going...i'm going for a normal passenger jet

also, on the concept, i decided to go for something that was a bit more grounded in reality and something that i knew would get a response from people i.e. terrorism

i'll be back soon with some plane done

this is just a standard max texture i fiddled with to try and get it looking a bit wet...cos its raining in the scene...

plane (wings) coming in a sec

ta. rear of the plane is coming soon and hopefully some more detailled layout of the scene will be as well

So the basic shape of the plane is all done now the next stage with it is to decide how it will be hitting the tower and destroy appropriately

i think i'll have an engine falling off, a wing snapping off, flames billowing from a hole in the side (bomb on board) and smoke coming from all the engines (those still atatched...lol)

should be fun to break it...

also apologies for the bad timing of the update...my bad

Man are you keeping a good pace! We're like 5 days into an 80 day challenge and you are almost done with the modeling! YIKES. Way to get crankin right off the bat ;) I wish I could do the same but I've got too much friggen homework! Lol.

I like where this is headed. I also agree with your decision to make the plane collide with the tower. Otherwise it would be easy for the viewer to think the plane is "behind" the tower and not actually going to collide.

Have fun creating the explosion. I have NO idea how that is done in 3d. Good luck. (or are you just gonna "paint" the explosion in photoshop?)

thanks mate

modelling is about 30% done....cos i still have a few tent variations, the rest of the tower, the destruction of the plane and the tower and then the environment....

the environment is going to kill me....lol

as for the explosion i've been experimenting with some stuff in max over the last few days and might put up some renders soon....

this is just a quick test of the flames and smoke and such on the plane....

i think i went just a bit overboard...hehe

more tomorrow

Don't forget to have smoke coming out the front of the engines as well. And make the smoke more swirly and of course I'm sure you plan on having it soften and drift as it gets more distant from the "source". Great work!

yeh i thought i should have some coming out the front too....

i'm gunna put alot of work into the smoke, fire etc....i want it to look 'spectacular'

I was beginning to become unhappy with the angle that I had previously so here are 4 different angles (including the old one) and I need some help choosing the best one....

I like the first one but I would like to get some other opinions

also if you have any other ideas for a shot that would be great

JHarford
09-17-2005, 12:42 PM
id personally go for angle 4 , but out of all of them i dont really like any. No offence, but i think they could be a lot better angles. Just try out a few more before deciding.

You have an interesting idea, id love to see anything french go down :twisted:

Good luck

Kickass progress with the modeling! A lot of time left in the contest and u've done so much already. Angle 1 I like the most for the explosion, but you could still play around with more angles. Wish you all the best.

Maxter

Interesting concept...

i like the first view angle, however, would be more spectacular if the turbines or aircraft parts are falling to the ground

Good luck!!:thumbsup:

robo3687
09-18-2005, 02:36 AM
thanks for the input guys

thinking on the first angle I was going to have the engines falling down towards the camera with flames trailling....maybe have some people jumping off of the tower...general mayhem...

and i also considered putting the camera inside the first or second level of the tower and having a first person view of the nose of the plane breaking into the tower....

i might go mock that up now and come back in a minute

Just a quick mockup of the angle from inside the tower....

imagine the pillar of the tower breaking and bending away, the front of the plane smashed and burning, the engines coming off the plane and the wings snapping forwards

also picture some people jumping/running out of the way of the plane....

I like the first one on the image with the four shots on it. The above one might be a bit much, especially if you're going to put people, explosions, and fire in it...unless you can swing it really good, perhaps zoom out just a bit.

Excellent modeling on the tower...can't wait to see further development.
