I don't know, maybe some of this beautiful morning when the sun is rising and nature wakes up slowly... Something like a dream...I don't know which will be the characters or what they will plan to do... I think I have to find a good idea, because this is one of the most important thing in this challenge... THE IDEA...

Here is the concept:

The Roots' Journey:

Book I: The land is here: The Roots' civilisation

Somewhere in an ancient land, far from the places that we all know, lives a civilisation, an old civilisation which was born from the ground, The Roots... There before any other living entities, before humans and animals. The ultimate evolution of plants. Their intelligence and knowledge is higher than any other intelligence. They lived in peace during thousands of years.

Book II :the disturbing element: The rise of the Witches and Men

When the Men became intelligent, one race of human took the power of the mass. The Witches. Some of them were good but as far as we can remember, the Most unpleasant reigned. One of them "VonderErde" was the most powerful. He Controled the invocations of Golems. He did great Battle against the Humans who didn't want to subject themselves. A great part of the land was destroyed during these battles. By invocating the earth's Golem, the most part of the Roots' land was polluted by some ancient magic...

The Final Book: The Roots' Journey: The Battle for their Land

The Roots Couldn't live in their land anymore, the whole ground was not good enough to get their resources to live. Some of them went and see the Witch but they never returned.
So the decision Makers called the whole civilisation to go and fight this Witch and his Golems.
The rumour arrived to VonderErde's ear and he sent the biggest army of Golems the world had ever seen. Earth, Ice and Fire ones...
The Roots gathered on the rising sun, the morning's dew on the forest and grass, they looked far away where the Golems' army standed and they ran to fight for their Land !

Some old picture !
It reminds me the Lord of the rings too ! I think of that after inventing the story... Nothing is really created but only recreated...

Keep it up Gillou , un arbre sous Zb ca va dépoter !!

Maybe you're right but My Roots are gonna be roots only, not trees. Something like big Turnips ! Mouahahah !

Nice trilogy story!

Good luck to you.

No matter, it is probably a joke, so you are excused...

Thanks Laurent ! This only a quick sketch. I think I will upgrade this in a near future !

Here is a quick sketch of the scene.
The Roots gathered on the right, out of the forest. The golems and their army on the left...
Don't know at this time if the composition is really good in the theory of compositions... Maybe some tweaking later and some advanced sketching of this very soon...

Really nice sketch ....
But aren't you afraid that your characters are gonna be a bit small in your scene ?
Because , knowing you as well , you're gonna put a lot of efforts in them ,to finally put them in tiny size ? ... what do you think ? :shrug:

Your latest update give a good ideau about the project of comp... maybe it's not exactly the best framing... but to view the two side, it's not very simple... you must certainly blocking all that to really set a good compo... courage my friend... you're on the good way to finish a picture... :thumbsup:

goodmorning pfeiffer. i like the idea of a spectator looking for a distance on the uppcomming battle but the composition is a little linear for a dramatic and action based scene maybe another angle looking for a side ?

No, not very !

You're right I think more work is needed in this composition, this is only a sketch. I'm working on another version, in portrait

Here is another sketch of the earth's golem... My concept is that they don't have any face, but a huge stone of jade instead...

Don't know at this time if any strange projections will be seen in this jade... This should give a cool effect but it depends if the golem will be near the camera or not. But I think in the final composition, he will be very far of the foreground...

Thanks Alexi !
Having a clean mesh is one of the good point to have before Zbrushing.

Yes... very clean mesh... really apprecied :thumbsup:

Thanks Laurent, you know who I am, body modeling is one of my favourite sport and having a good mesh is very important to me !

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Zbrush part of the modeling will help me to find better shapes for the body and espacially the face. Then I have to add details. The point to reach is to render him with displacement of course.
Most of the texturing will be done in Zbrush too.

Gilles,

I would so much like to do 3D as well as you do it ! I have Cinema 4D version 9 hidden somewhere on my harddrive, but I haven't really made it very far until now.

Hey, I was in Grenoble two weeks ago ! What kind of instructor are you ? A skiinstructor ?

Went there to get a new minilab for my photostore - KIS - do you know them ?

Well back to serious - as much as I love your work, I feel it misses a bit the feeling of journey - I keep saying that to everybody .... a couple of suitcases ... I don't know, but something that makes the journey theme get through. Other than that - serious good job so far and good luck with it !

You were in Grenoble ? Cool, what do U thing about the city ? No, I'm a 3D instructor, ahah ! I'm a real rookie in skiing ! I'm a better rider on a snowboard or a snowscoot !
About the composition, I understand what you feel. Sometimes, doing just the composition is nott enough to understand, that's why most of the challengers give some little history to explain the picture...
Thanks again ! :)

You are right Dimitris, I have fun doing things in Zbrush !
Doing some animations could be cool ! Seeing those roots on the feet going in the ground after every step and going out while he is moving... Should be cool !

Yes, I think the roots should be on the border of a forest, watching the horizon...
