@ monsitj : Hey Monsit , thx for your kind words !! I'll try to do my best !!!

@ alancamara : Hey Alan , wassup ' my friend , thx for the wishes ... Where's your thread btw ?

@ Elendil le Grand : Thx Nicolas , well I hope to do better if I can ! :)



Ok I had a lot of thinking since this morning (in the middle on spamming session) ... I have three ideas ... maybe you guys could tell me if some of them appear interesting :

-First one : the duty
A firefighter climbing in his truck ... Torn between his fear and his duty , he's hero but is he able to be all the time , because everyday is a new experience ... He's starting his journey with the fear in his stomach , maybe he will save lives today , maybe he will lost his one ...

-Second one : Ambitious
An Office guy entering his work huge building ... Always looking up not afraid to stare this huge monument of work , always fixing the top ... His Journey is starting on the first floor but with a lot of courage and work , maybe he can succeed to the top ...

-Third one : Revenge
Elves contempling theirs village burned out ... Three elves going back to their place , but the ennemy attcked their camp ... They came back too late , every sisters are dead , they don't have any home now , any family ... surprise first , then sadness ... to finally anger , their journey will start ... they won't have any rest now

So that's what I have for now , I will start sketching tonight ...

Let me know what you guys think of these !

cheers ,

-Steph

wow already ideas and some nice one, i like the 2nd and 3rd one...

2nd one is more banal but maybe your interpretation can make all the difference, i can't wait to see some sketch of the 3rd one though...

Continue ! :)

Gunilla
02-28-2006, 07:56 PM
Hmmm... The fireman! Yep - that's it. You could make it epic in a every-day sense, both dramatic and emotional - maybe with the flames from a huge fire in the background... he fears for his life.. yes, could be very strong.
Second one could work too, maybe it's just his motives that seems less noble.
And the elves? Naah, to common.

So there you go, ready to start now? :D

Agamemnwn
02-28-2006, 07:59 PM
hi stephane,

i like the first and the third but mostly the first one . i think u can show the emotions on the fireman in the ladder . the fear and the courage as he goes up the ladder

@ Vedic kings : Hey thx man , good luck to you !!

@ shakes : Hahah , yeah on the road again !!! thx man !

@ cipher : hey man , thx ... mmh I like the first 2 , but somehow the 3rd one is my favorite ... don't know why :rolleyes: :D ... Will make some sketch , and we'll see ... oh and I'm waiting to see yours !

@ coochaki : Hi there !! glad to meet you too ! ... didn't see your thread ... still hestitating to join ? thx for droppin' by !

@ Climax : Hey Omar , thx man for the wishes , send it right back at you my friend !

@ Gunilla : Hey Gunie ... somehow , I knew you will prefer that one , and I knew you'll disagree with the 3rd one ... don't know why :rolleyes: :scream: ... will make some sketches before deciding ... yeah I like sexy elves :scream: ahaha

@ Agamemnwn : Hey Jannis ... 1st and 3rd for you , great ... these are my favorite too ... let's see if I can make some "not too ugly" sketches of those ... thx friend !

@ soapy : ahaha ... yeah GO go go ... let's rock da place !! w00t !

@ Rebecca : ouh great idea ... and ... and he's saying : "dear god , this parachute is a knapsack...aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh" and then ..... *splash* :scream: LMKAO

(it is just an idea :shrug: )

The first could have been a cool entry for the spectacular challenge !

The second is not really cool and not very "epic"...

The third one is really nice but really ambitious ! Lots of things to do ! It reminds me the lord of the rings...
I said that but my topic looks like a part of the lord of the rings...

Good morning Stéphane!

Second challenge day and already 4 pages here:D ...

You've had some time for brainstorming:thumbsup: ! Some cool (and hot)concepts...I can well imagine the first one..and perhaps the third...but I wait for the first sketches of course!:bounce:

OMG - I'm getting predictable! :eek: ... better change that.
OK - go with the elves, but I think you should place them on a spaceship filled with zoombies then :thumbsup:

hey steph !

u know, i dont know if im doing this challenge : so more organic modeling there :D
Thats not the thing that i prefer :D

so i need help :D

(bon déjà viens sur msn, ça fait 10ans que jte vois plus :P)

03-01-2006, 08:26 AM
For me ity's the third idea ...

Zapan
03-01-2006, 10:08 AM
@ makaron : Ahahah snailmen ... wearing leopard bikinis ... and with furry legs ... ahah enough nightmares...

@ the best : ouh , nice idea ... except , I think it will be a little bit too like Climax's concept in the past challenge and I'm not sure I could be able too do something half as good as his ... but I think I'm gonna be with the elves .... hope you'll appreciate that one anyway ...

@ BobbEr : Thx man , best wishes for you too !

@ gpepper : Hey Gilles , you're right , I think I'm gonna go with the elves , except I 'll try to create a design a little bit original , don't want to copy LOTR or warcraft design , I hope I will have something cool anyway ... And yeah , that's really ambitious , hope I will move fast (don't want to be stuck on one character for like month like the past challenge ) speedy snail I want to be ouch !

@ yunisirees : Hiyyyaaaa Hamid !! great to see mate you and thx for the wishes !

@ daWinky : Morning Sabie , (Im grinning from ear to ear saying that sentence) ... Well apparently people prefer the 3rd one with elves , more fantasy and less original ... but I agree with that , the fantasy look allow me funny things about characters and the common theme keep me in the subject with an understandable concept ... we'll see If I can do it right ... and Are you not joining ? Have you a deal with Laurent about stay away from that challenge ? I'm sad ....

@ Lemog : Yay , Lemog agree with that one , was kinda afraid of what you think about it , but now I guess I stop my theme thinking ... Oufff :bounce: I hope I won't let you down with that !


@ sh@ke : Wheee heee , thx for coming by over here , and for your wishes , and you're welcome here anytime you want !! cheers , my friend !

@ ChrisD01 : yay , thx for the wishes , getting right back at you

@ Gunilla : Aaaaaahhhhhahahaha ... a spaceship , that's what it was missing ... and with a rain of bladders and colons to please Gunie with my concept anyway !! :scream: .

@ flaeticia : ui mais j'ai des soucis avec msn , il faut que je formate mon ordi , je vais m'en occuper cette semaine :blush: ... en meme temps tu me snob sur msn :rolleyes: :scream:
But yeah , I'll try to help as much as I can ... not sure about the "as much" still !

@ Elendil le Grand : Clair et concis :thumbsup: thx Nicolas , I'll go for that one ! great !


Ok thx everyone , it appears that the 3rd concept works better so I 'll give the shot with that one , some time saved ... I should rather spend more time on sketching with character design, composition , and stuff ... *goes grab a piece of paper and a couple of pens* .
So I'll try to show something as soon as possible (but I'm a snail) ...
Thx everyone for your help , much appreciated !!

cheers ,

Hi all !
Ok Here's the basic idea ...
Even if nothing is really defined , that's pretty much what I have in mind for the global scene ... Behind the elves there's supposed be a burning camp ... but I've no idea how it will look like by now ...Have to make some sketch researches for that and also for the elves design ...

Let me know what you guys think about ...

cheers ,

@ the1st_angel : Hey Sacha , thx for your kind words , I'm sending them right back at you !

@ makaron : Ahaha , ok Mon' these are transexual then :D

@ Jjack : Hey Jack !! Didn't see your thread , are my eyes closed ? :twisted: Thx man for coming by here...

@ Lemog , Mona , Jack : See , you're rushing me , and then I didn't even make a background ... Ok let me get that straight : I'm not Lemog !! I'm slow ... And I not doing 2d ! :scream:

@ the best : Thx man , for you always great support ! :thumbsup:

@ Nomad : Thx a lot , best wishes for you too !

@ Grin3d : Thx Roman , my best wishes for you too !!

@ mmoir : Thx a lot Mike , yeah I'm gonna do for that one , best wishes for you !

HHuuummmm it's could be interesting here... you're like me, you are gonna make hot elves muahahahahaha :thumbsup:

But one critic... with this composition we could think that the elves research someone, the one wich is squatt seems to search some traces of step...

I hope you will understand me... :scream:

Agamemnwn
03-01-2006, 05:23 PM
hi stephane,

great concept there maybe i can draw like that after a couple of months of practice :D . but i dont see the journey . is it metaphorical the journey to reverge the burned village?

Gunilla
03-01-2006, 05:25 PM
@ Gunilla : Well the way I'm picturing those Elves , I'm not sure I will be able to heal you from that allergy :scream:

... apple breasts? :curious:

And don't worry - if you are going to do transsexual elves I'm sure the entertainment factor will stay high here :scream:

Didn't see my thread :d ? .... well , i'll try to finish my last model and will post as soon i have some sketch

soapy
03-01-2006, 06:19 PM
Androgynous ok, but no transexuals please! hahah. Joking aside, I think it might be a real challenge to make convincing androgynous characters and would go pretty well with the elf theme.

Good start, bring it on!

03-01-2006, 06:24 PM
looking good Zapan..I like the elves idea. are they a little tall though, for elves? in your sketch?

antone-m
03-01-2006, 06:43 PM
I like the sketch excpet I can`t figure the land will it be grass ?

Zapan
03-01-2006, 06:47 PM
@ Poonks : Thx man , I see your point ... basically ! well I hope it will be more clear with the background , faces expressions , and stuff ... And of course , there still will be the possibility to change the comp when the characters will be here .!

@ Agamemnwn : Thx a lot Jannis except , I'm really not comfortable with drawing , I hope I will be with modeling ... the most important I guess ! Yeah That's the main idea , Their journey or their quest , begins from that point , with all the revenge feelings they have ... You 're getting the doubt in my mind tho ... Hope everyone understand this way :blush: ...

@ Gunilla : ahaha ... revenge !! Although , the revenge expression thing could help me here , could you come over here and pose with sexy elves outfit ... ? :scream:

@ monsitj : Thx a lot Monsit , gosh , I've got a lot of pressure on my shoulders now !! Thx a lot mate for your kind words !!

@ Jjack : Ahaha , thx Jack for believing in me , probably even more than myself :scream: ... And you will join ? Great news , eagerly waitin' to see that !

@ soapy : Ahaha , thx Jim , but it was a joke , believe they will be all female sexy fantasy elves ... at least I will try ... :wip:

@ shakes : Thx John , you find them tall ? weird ... I'm trying to get inspiration in the classical Heroic fantasy stuff , like LOTR or Warcraft , warhammer etc ... :shrug:

Thx everyone , working on the character design right now , maybe if my snailing level permits me , I will be able to post some later ...

cheers everyone ,

-Zapan

EDIT : @ the best : thx , yeah the ground should be grass ... probably !

makaron
03-01-2006, 07:23 PM
bahhh... they look like barbies... :p are they gonna have snails as pets?

the comp looks like its workable... you snail on man... :wip:

Lemog
03-01-2006, 10:25 PM
Nice drawing, but I'm just a little bit disappointed by their look... when I read your story, I imagine then less realistic... terribly magical and feeric... with a compo more close... focus on these elves... while playing with the burning background which come less present but even more visible with this contrast... close/big/dark <-> far/little/burning...

@ makaron : well , I have to prove to people that I'm a guy ... 'cause with the whole Steph~ie thing and Beckie's birthday card , I'm sure some people had doubts :scream: ...

@ Lemog : Thx Laurent , mmh some really good points there ... let's see ... At first I was thinking about some warriors elves , with some armor pieces and weapons , they 're gone away and then their village been attacked ... But I'm drawing right now on their look , trying to find something a little bit more original kind of look !
About the comp , definitely something bothering me too ... and your suggestion appears to make a lot of sense ... So no doubts I will give it a try with another sketch ... this time I won't jump onto modeling like a crazy ... I would like to make something right ! :)
Thx Laurent for your always great suggestions ... See ? you have to be around !! :D

@ Rebecca : Ok Beckie ... one of them will have a bowl cut , another one some cute cheeks , and the last one won't eat rice ... :wise: :D

Hi all !

Here's an idea of the design for the first character ... should be the left one ... Probably some things will change following the others and also the modeling part ...

Let me know what you guys think of

The new one is really better for me... but I think you can push more the style... it's a good starting point, but you don't have exactly for the moment a real (new) style.... but that comes...

About your previous answer... a thought about warrior... in the concept, I don't lilke much... if this guys was "good" warriors... their village wasn't burning... then, if these elves are good elves (normal...), they're unable to protect their village of the warrior attack... and we conserve our contrast... near is good... far is bad... following this sad action... with the reason for the closed part of the scene a little bit in the dark... these elves, after that, are plunged in the dark... and they must start their Journey...

Ah, nice to discover the first sketches here, very well done:) !
I really like the second sketch, but I agree with Laurent about the concept, needs some work though, but of course, there's alot of time and I'm sure to see some stunning work here...take time to sketch a little more, no need to jump in polys so early:wise: !

Morning - some nice sketches here already! No snailing around this time :D
She looks good, very much like a warrior - hot and strong at the same time. I'm a bit with Laurent though about the concept, maybe they should be presented as less agressive?
Anyway, flying start for this! :thumbsup:

Although , the revenge expression thing could help me here , could you come over here and pose with sexy elves outfit ... ? :scream:

@ alancamara : Hey Alan ... Thx a lot for your kind words ... but I'm a little disappointed here : You're still not joining :cry: what this is about ? Thx a lot anyway for coming here to support us greatly apprecaited !

@ makaron : Ahahaha , well I don't really know why the Hi-heal ... I guess that even she lives in forest they want to be fancy anyway ... or she's coming back from a date ... :D ... Well food for thoughts I guess ... And you really expect some fur don't you ? where ? legs ? :scream:

@ Bikod : thx a lot for your kind words ! :)

@ the best : Hey thx man ! Except I'm afraid you're not gonna see 3d soon , have got a lot of design research to make at first ... Want to know wher I will going to not lose time after on the modeling and stuff ... Thx for the support man !

@ Lemog : Ah yes , thx Laurent , still exploring some design ideas to make looking them better... mmh another very good point for you Laurent *scratches head* ... Ok I thought maybe something else ... why not seeing them as hunters instead ... that would explain why they were out and then I can keep the armored kind of style ... In this case , I could add some dead animals like rabbits or birds and also different kind of weapons , more lights ... I didn't want to make "magical" elves or fairies , like in LOTR ... besides I'm not really comfortable with the magical stuff you know ? ... What do you think about it ? I'll think about a new composition , according to your suggestions , and also write a little expicative story ...
Anyhow thx a lot for all your help Laurent !

@ SONIC-X : Thx a lot Corrie , Glad you like it !

@ Claireabella : Thx a lot Claire , best wishes for you too !

@ daWinky : morning Sabie ! Thx a lot for your kind words , yes I'm still thinking about the concept , besides Laurent is there to slap me to go deep the idea ... And Yes , I'm gonna take my time to plan everything on paper first , like that it will reduce some problems after ...

@ Gunilla : Mon Derriere Rouler ! Thx a lot Gunie , well you know that's the start , I'm always excited like a bug when I'm starting new things , but I'm afraid soon, Da snail will catch me up ... I'm hearing him , He's scratching behind my door ! :scream:

@ Elendil le Grand : Thx a lot Nico , the next one should appears later today , I hope !

@ Agamemnwn : Thx a lot Jannis ! You too ? mmh , maybe these heals weren't a great idea ... maybe putting some rangers shoes instead ... what do you think ?

@ flaeticia : LMKAO !! :scream: , well the sketching part is really not the point , the concept work should be reviewed anyway ... But you're doing great too , no worries about the sketch , only ideas count ! :thumbsup:

Hunters can be a good solution... of course, that works... but as hunters, they're certainly want their revenge before beginning a Journey...
...but this thought is very minor... hunters idea work as well... maybe more near than the design you want for them... ?

Hey Zapan!

I think its a really original take on the concept - really fab and definately my favourite of your three ideas -though i do agree that you'll have an awful lot of work to obviously get the message across to the viewer so theyre immdeiately aware how the journey evolves from the unfolding event- youve definately set yourself a hard one! -But having said that -its great to see someone setting themselves a really difficult task -you can really challenge yourself here!
I noticed you said you'll be doing lots of research and were trying to take inspiration from like LOTR or Warcraft , warhammer etc with your style so - although you probably already know who these artsts are, i thought id give you a heads up on them (just in case!)- because theyre really linked to all of the designs of the stuff youre talking about - and are really inspirational, with unusual fascinating artwork styles-

First off - theres this page (http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=15-01-041-f) - which gives you an account of the artists who's work inspired Tolkien to write Lord of the Rings. (Most specifically John Bauer (http://www.johnbauersmuseum.nu/) and Kay Nielsen.)

Also - one of the most prominent Warhammer artist is Ian Miller (http://www.ianmiller.org/) who's workblows me away!

Lastly -I'm sure youre aware of the guy from Final Fantasy and Vampire hunter D etc but Yoshitaka Amano's (http://www.elevenland.com/amano/amano.php3) work is amazing - and strikes me as related to the ones ive previously mentioned.

Hope these help in some way!

Hi mate...well you had some nice ideas..i liked the first one, and the third one...is cool to see youre going for the third one, i agree with lemog about the design on the Elves, but i also thing that maybe one of them can be the warrior, u know looking with rage at the burning village or something...well i know ull come with the best idea anyway..good luck fiend...ahhh..the hunters idea is cool bro!

@ Lemog : Thx a lot Laurent ... still thinking about it (smoke's coming out of my ears :scream: ) ... maybe some other ideas will come in my mind ... I tried in that 2nd character following to keep that "hunter" look ...

@ the best : mmh , interesting suggestion , but they should be able to defend theirself against the ennemy , because they will begin their journey to track opponents and take their revenge ... well at least that's their goal !

@ Fred Heys : Aaahhhahaha ... I thought the exact same thing when I've read the subject :scream: ... Thx for dropping by ...

@ Selina42 : Hi Selina ... First, thx a lot for your kind words , glad you find it interesting ...
I do like the fact we don't see their "journey" as a trip , but more like a quest , although something they didn't planned at first ... not sure to be really clear about that ... but maybe it will be a little bit more when I'll post the little story I'm working on ... Anyhow , no doubts it will be a real challenge for me on every levels ... oww :D
Thx a lot for these great references links ... I heard about some of them but I mostly work with books I bought years ago (Games workshop dark elves , Warcraft artbook , LOTR artwork ) but I'm totally ashamed to say that I never had the idea to visit sites about them :blush: ... But you're right , really great artworks there , which obviously will help me for sure ...
Thx again for pointing these , and also for your help ! cheers :)

@ Rebecca : ... Mon Derriere Rouler ... chears, :scream:

@ Kahlan Amnell : Hey , thx a lot , glad you like it , yep I saw a lot of people going for tiny things concepts or cartoony ... But I'm not able to create any of those :shrug: ... Thx a lot for coming by over here ... !

@ rattlesnake : Hey Jorge ! Thx a lot my friend ... glad you like it ,... well the way I see it , if we read the composition in a normal way (from left to right) we should start to see the shocked elf (have to change that in first sketch btw) , then the sad one , then the village and finally the angry elf ... but i will have a lot of work to make on these expressions , to make them believable and understandable ... The angry one should (at least in the picture in my mind :D ) be staring a the other 2 , saying something like , "what we are waiting for to track them down and kick their butt" ... well she's not saying that with those words , but that's the main idea :scream: ...

@ dvelasco : Ahaha , yeah I'm not really great in inventing stuff ... thx for the wishes man !


Thx everyone for all your interest in here , I will continue sketching this end of the week ... to improve the concept and the design ...
the 2nd character design idea is following...

Your last face is more harmonious than the others in my mind- there I can't help judging the drawing, and not the concept. Still, it's not easy to create something original in elves design, after Lord of the rings etc. but you have enough creativity to create something more personal.

Ah yes, and even your sketches in 3d looks awsome :)

The comp is quite wellbalanced but maybe I think perhaps a bit static? Maybe a small rotation for the camera so the figure to the right was a bit further away and the village less centered could be something to try... pffui, details - but I have to say something else but chearing sometimes :D I'm sure you figure it out, it's looking good already.

I took a look again on the scene and I had boring problem there , in fact the very first one is facing back to the village ... sadly , the second one is staring at it ... shocked , and the last one is talking to the 2 others , angry ! I would like to have these 3 reactions on the shot , but it's not easy to have these 3 faces on the camera ... But yeah , I will turn the cam a bit to un~center (:curious:) the village ... great suggestion :) Thx a lot for the kind words ... chears ,

@ gpepper : Thx a lot Gilles , :bounce:

@ the best : lol , thx a lot man

@ makaron : Ahah , there is some kind of mix-up there me think , I don't really know you vikings legends , but Elves are actually pretty tall , a little bit more than human ... they are very fits with a pale skin , a really long life ... well of course , according to the Heroic Fantasy world I'm taking inspiration (http://www.shadowscapes.com/gal_CCGWARHAMMER.shtml) from ... In Lord of the ring , it's pretty much the same ...

@ rattlesnake : Thx a lot Jorge , yeah of course dust , fog , smoke , dof , is effects planned but now I'm all scared by that :scream: ...

@ bkeiser3d : Thx a lot man

@ shakes : Thx a lot John

@ cipher : Thx a lot Seb for your kind words... jeez but now I've got a lot of pressure on my shoulders ... I only hope I won't screw this up on the modeling :blush: :scream:

@ Climax : Thx a lot Omar , and ouh yeah , great point here , I didn't thought about that , definitely you're right ... gonna change the frame , thx for warning me ...

@ jddog : Arf , sad to hear Julien ... well I cross my fingers for you to find time to join anyway ... but thx a lot for taking time to support us anyway ! :)

@ beelow : Thx a lot Bryce , Glad to hear it pleases you :bounce:

@ Rebecca : Hey !! What you mean by "at last" I'm updating everyday these days , could hardly be faster you know :wise: ...

Maybe a little bird would be happy to hear that I've launched maya ... I put a cube on the grid ... But somehow I can't do anything except turning nervously around like a nut ...
Let's see If I can start something today ...

cheers ,

@ Gunilla : Well apparently , you greatly got over it ... I started a head to day , but I was all sleepy, with a little hang-over today ... I guess you can figure why ... But at least I started the serious stuff ... Thx for chearing Gunie

@ DimitrisLiatsos : ahah , yeah it's exactly what happened , ... thx for cheering Dimi .
Oh btw , I started the model by the ears , but I really don't know why ... :scream: ... sorry couldn't resist :scream:

Ok thx people , for your great support , I started a head today , but I guess it will be better to show you the whole head instead of some flying parts ... yeah I know I didn't post anything today ... Finally Beckie was right when she was saying that I was snailing ... damn I hate when that woman is right ... :scream: ...

So "Rendez-vous" on Monday for the update...

Start well... face very sweet... for instance... ears appear to much nervous comparing the sweet modeling... maybe need to find the good average between the both... but it's certainly too early to give some constructive remark... remain much work on it, and it's already very good... bonne continuation le cadet... :) :thumbsup:

heeeyyy, Steph is in da place! you began modeling as I remarked...nice face; in fact it's true that she's not angry, and she's not crying, just a little bit stressed :D
I was joking...
on the other hand, her ears are a bit weird in front...but you're very courageous to model such big ears (and she even doesn't look like Bugs bunny :D). Aloooors au boulot!

:bounce:
ssshhhboing!

03-06-2006, 03:56 PM
Great start! Really nice modell!
But if I can come with an opinion... The modell is missing that elf feeling in her face. Your concept drawings got the real elf look. This is ofcourse a matter of opinion on how a elf should look, but I like it when the look different in the face as well, not only the ears.
So, if she had larger eyes and a little longer or thinner face, longer nose. Then I think she could feel more like an elf to me.
Keep up the nice work!

Woah now youve been the busy one!

I'm loving your model, she looks beautiful and its a great mesh! I can really see you bringing this concept tightly together!

I do like the fact we don't see their "journey" as a trip , but more like a quest , although something they didn't planned at first ...

I agree - i see this idea as being about a journey through life and experience as well as just the physical passage. And i love the fact that your idea holds more than one meaning!

To be honest... yes... the face is very well modeled so far... very clean and very perfect... so sweet... but it need the little part of personality... that must already exprim who is this elfe,... the own feeling and actual mood...
... but in first, as each one of us, this face must have the little something of special... which make the personality... something other than ears :scream:
... this head is too much perfect... not me :thumbsup: (just take a look to my avatar... hahahaha the proof...)

Yoyoyoyoyoyo my friend!!


really nice start :thumbsup:
Juste je trouve les gravures un peu maladroite les courbes sont pas forcement tres douces surtout sur celle de la poitrine. Et les clavicules, au centre je trouve que on voit l'os descendre un peu trop bas... sinon c'est tip top! :bounce:

Amazing work Steph, hope to see the texturing soon :love:
