ooooh, interesting design for the robot. I definately like the vertical composition. It has more dynamics and dig the colour comps too mate. Can't wait to see more. No critzs...for now :twisted:

cheers :thumbsup:

Cool robot. Maybe you could have some soldier sitting on the outer hull, like how WWII soldiers used to hitch rides sitting on the outside of a tank.

heres a very rough composition sketch but it captures the idea of the glorious homecoming army parade

you will see soldiers mix with people on the street ... people throwing their hats in the air and basically just everybody celebrating :)

light will be a strong reddish orange afternoon sun mixed with the cool shadows of the marching robots

ill keep on making robots and some characters and i'll try to refine the composition so it becomes more clear

The robot is looking cool mate :thumbsup: and i'm liking the colour comp of this one. The warm and the cool colours are pretty well balance. will wait and see what you come up with next.

cheers

09-13-2005, 09:44 AM

Hi Vahn, great concept! Not seen anything like this around, which is a good thing! I like the feel of the latest sketch, though it make me wondr why there is such a large empty space in front of the robot.. maybe to stop people getting squished, but if you added more celebrating people in there it would help get across the carnival type atmosphere. But all the colours and light are really well done. best of luck

Vahn
09-13-2005, 03:11 PM
kory: oh-oh...*starts sweating* ok ill do my best :D ... you still didnt say if you would enter the challenge :P

Zepyhri: ooh thank you ... well yeah they would be squished i guess ..but im still looking for a different shot where you can see more of the army. thats when youll see more people i promise :)

A Spectacular Triumph! - very good idea, I'm very interested to see how/whether you choose to incorporate your most characterful characters with the pomp and splendour of the occasion. good luck

CoreyArtE
09-13-2005, 04:34 PM
kory: oh-oh...*starts sweating* ok ill do my best :D ... you still didnt say if you would enter the challenge :P



Yeah, thats Corey, but yeah. I allerady entered into the challenge. I just dont really understand it. I keep reading it over and over yet it still doesnt make sense to me. I mean, what's truely considered spectacular and whats not?

Vahn
09-13-2005, 11:09 PM
Avatarist : weehee thx.. well to be honest ... im looking forward to it :D

Corey: the topic is very open thats true ... but you will think of something while looking at the other entries here ... still a lot of time to think, scribble, paint and play
dont worry m8

for me spectacular is an event more or less in a short period of time, where something happens, that just radiates a strong energy and captures a lot of people at the same time ... and inflicts them with kind of the same feeling/emotion when they witness that certain event... may it be the huge orca whale crushing 2 japanese guys in a kayak...the birth of 4 childs at once or the homecoming of a victorious underdog army that just survived the hardest war ever :)

you'll think of something

Great stuff vahn, I think you should go for the potrait as you can better show the scale of the big robots according to the small people. Haha, I love that the front left guy has really large rabbit teeths! Keep it up man, I can surely see that you have improved in you'r coloring and sense of composition. :thumbsup:

These are looking great, Vahn! I especially like this last post more than any of the others. Just the overexuberance of the guy with the big mouth seels the piece, and I hope you can have others in a similar state of happiness.
It's good to see you back again. This piece feels so different from your last CGTalk Challenge entry. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. Good luck with it!

u r doing just fine :) what concern the composition, I would suggest u to movce that girl on the left even more to the left and rotate it a bit into the right.. that how the robot in the back will be leaning to the left and the girl to the right, so u get a well balanced composition, where all other characters r put nicely in the middle, and the image is reading clearly.

I tilted the girl and put another robot leg in the front of the background ... I think this works well

Now you have to hurry a bit! Only week to go :wip:

I like the uplifting mood it has. Hope you create some tight areas as opposed to slight blurring technique youre using.

Good luck! :wavey:

funny character style you got here. maybe it is a bit to light in the background.
What's with some more indicated buildings, just slightly like on the left.
The machine would become more 3 dimensional.
Greetings my compatriot and keep it up.

Hi Adrian,

Love your idea! for once there seems to be a bright future. Don´t think the colors should be any darker.
That old dude is supercool!

do you have any tips how i could move on ? i know i have to do some more balancing ... and overall sharpening ... but does the composition work ?

I i want to put in some more detail & texture and refine the whole left side of the pic ... but if any of you guys has a cool idea.... now is the time :D :arteest:

Masking and the marquee tool always helps me clean the edges faster.
Some futuristic looking buildings would be cool, starting from the left side of your image then fading away to the back. Again, i would use the marquee tool to outline the shape and then paint bucket the main colour of the buildings. Then just paint the rest. You don't have to put a lot of details on the building since you already have a lot going on with your characters. I would also add two more robots that's fading back (in between the female and the guy on the right side) I would definately add some conffettis on your image also.

Other than that, some of the characters just need a tad bit more definitions. The style is definately working for me as always.

i hope this help a bit bro.
be back to see more and hopefully the final image :bounce: :wip:
cheers

i think the compos now is realy cool.no need to chang comp.go sharpening or bluring some of your people and robot a bit to make better depth.and add some new cool-look buildings instead the old one like archie point.
and last one,personally i love the spacial effect and i think it would be great if you add some tiny red flags on the sky like the snow but not too much like that.I think it would make a better mood.just my opinion.keep going.cheers.:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Far far away in a distant land... there was a little country that had to go to war. It didnt have much troops and their military equipment was very old. Still they had no choice but to go and support the Kings army in the great war. But the little underdog army was lucky. There are no winners in war, but having survived with only a few losses, they felt like winners. Finally they returned home to their little country and moved into their capital. The people were happily cheering the homecoming soldiers with their red banners, with tears of joy,laughter and victory cries. It was truly a spectacular parade that day.

and the feast that evening .. i tell you.... mhhhhm but thats a different story :)
