Here is my idea. Itīs kinda very illustrative. I wanna go for more stylised look with touch of fresh graphics. And I prefer to have more fun with this challenge then was Spectacular.
Of course, this pages are truly open for C&C discussion, so feel free with it.

thanx

Hi Juraj - already started!
So - it's the little dragon leaving home? Cute concept, I think this could work very well - good luck!

Hi Gun Gun Gunilla! Welcome!

So - it's the little dragon leaving home?

Yes, his mother died... or, is she sleeping ? :D

Good luck! :beer:

It's also a really nice concept, the mother really has a good sense of 'dead', and pose of the little dragon looking back is cool.

This has to be the 1st mammal dragon I have ever seen. or is she a marsupial? the front profile kinda looks like she has a kangaroo pouch too! extra bonus points for unique character design!

looking great so far!

Hey great modelling! It's got a good sense of character about it. So are you going to be doing it all it a cartoony style? Or will the background be realistic?

Keep up the great work.:thumbsup:

Wintermute - he he he! yeah, little bit of this, little bit of that... :scream:

SheepFactory - thank you! Happy to have you here. Keep watching.

burpy - hey dragon man! mostly cartoony. Canīt really be so sure. This should be friendly, even if there is depression. Kinda challenge for modeling approach as well.

mttjss - did quick google search for your point. Yeah, kinda old school... Thanx for feedback!

Bikod - Oh, we will see how polygons will run. Thank you.

Tre1z3 - I like how this work starts as well. Canīt really even think about final result. Should be different than scene concept is. Less illustrative. More dramatic.

SONIC-X - hey dude, thanx dude! good luck to you!

Good luck to all of you! Have fun. Donīt kill dragons - they have their own problems...

ragdoll

Good luck! :)

ragdoll - thank you, and thanx for an idea! I want to set the expression for body. I think we donīt need to see facial expresion in order to feel emotions. This is going to be very hard fun :scream:

First little step. I am still learning how to model fast and accurate - it means UNDO is my friend :)
I will be very happy with some suggestions for my topology from riging point of view. I wanna make this big mom useful for animation.

theWOODman
03-03-2006, 12:15 AM
I like your idea and I think you're off to a good start. One thing though, is there any way that you could pose the little dragon so we could see his face. I think that showing the sadness in the dragon's eyes would really help to convey emotion and the sence of loss.

alkhobarspecial
03-03-2006, 01:07 AM
love the concept sketch. imnot sure if anyone else has mentioned this but if they have then im sorry for repeating.

i was wondering if you were going to put any kind of details that might hint at how the mother died? is it like the other end of the st. george story? did she die protecting her child? i think details on the mothers death might help strengthen the childs reason for leaving. just typing out loud. anyways love where you are going so far.

haha oweron, i guess you're gonna call me dragon man from now on. But I don't deserve it, your dragons are looking much more awesome!:thumbsup:

To me, it looks like the mesh will deform fine, the bending parts mainly look like a tube of quads, so that should be ok. Don't know much about rigging though.

Well, keep posting updates!

ziriguidum - thanx. Good luck to you 2!

vivin - Glad you like it. Still not sure about final 3D look, but will be something less smooth.

se7enthcin - Cool :thumbsup:

-WOODY- - I am about to make another sketch with that kind of pose. I just want to compare them. Still think that we donīt need to see his face. Thanx for suggestion!

alkhobarspecial -i was wondering if you were going to put any kind of details that might hint at how the mother died? - Exactly yes. I have few ideas. thanx for suggestion. My girlfriend had the same suggestion, so I am playing with this detail in my mind.

dmonk - :)

beelow - I need to. Have some important work at the same time with the challenge, so canīt dreaming too much :scream: Good luck!

rasamaya - Yeah, Just do it. Thanx!

burpy - sure, dragon man!

SONIC-X - Happy! Keep it up!

ufotung - thank you.

ecura - Thanx. Hope to keep my development at such a level.

claudio_jordao - Hah. And again, the motto for this journey is: Donīt kill dragons! They have their own problems :scream:

Hello friends,

I made this comparasion in order to know your opinion. To me, little fella looks more dramatic with pose looking back. I had some ideas about emphasize death ( arrows on the left, and more radical alsodeath man on the right :)
feel free to comment. feel free to post some suggestions.
Thanx for your feedback.

sonicstrawbery
03-04-2006, 12:28 PM
I will go with the left one, arrows are a good idea, show directly a threat to the dragons... about the pose of the lil one i'd prefer to have view on his face to see his sadness, the turn back pose could works well also...it's up to you, good work :)

makaron
03-04-2006, 12:36 PM
the left: no doubts what happend, she is dead and he have to start his journey, all alone :cry:

ragdoll
03-04-2006, 02:50 PM
both are very strong... As long as it's clear that the dragon in the background is dead, then it's understood that the dragon on the foreground is leaving...

my suggestion, use the image on the left with the same pose for the dragon but have his head turn around with a sad facial expression towards a scary venture into the outside world alone, plus it's a rainy/sad/gloomy day...

here's a sketch... i had to draw on your piece to make my explanation clear... :D

http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=3/6208445353.jpg&s=x10


sorry, i messed it up... but you get what i mean right?

just a suggestion...

good luck!:thumbsup:

-rj

burpy
03-04-2006, 03:04 PM
I think the pose on the right looks off, he doesn't look sad. The only way I can imagine showing his face while keeping that camera angle is too take a snapshot as he is walking dejectedly away, which would be a short time after the first concept.

Although I think the looking back is a very very strong concept. I understand wanting to see the face, but there is an element also gained from not seeing his face, and overall the pose creates stronger emotion.

Nice work on both though.:)

Xcomman
03-04-2006, 03:14 PM
Nice work, good luck:thumbsup:

JurajMolcak
03-04-2006, 07:25 PM
cipher - yes, arrows idea looks better to me too. Man or other animal is just perturbative for this scene. Thanx for your point.

makaron - ah, makaron, welcome! :)

ragdoll - ha ha, you really did it? You really did sketch for me :buttrock: Thanx man. And of course, I get it!

burpy - Although I think the looking back is a very very strong concept.
I kinda like it more too. Looks nice theatrical and stronger from my point of view. Thank you for your opinion.

Xcomman - Thanx. Good luck to you too :thumbsup:

MichaelMotion - thanx mate! Will post some modeling updates soon.

dvelasco - hah, Zbrush all the way... Man, I am one of those without any Zbrush experience:scream: Yes, I will go for more edge look. Not really sure about final result, but I made some test and it looks pretty cool to me. Good luck to you too.

And kind of being is not important. I donīt know, why I did choose dragon-like character... That was just what smack my mind. I read somewhere around this challenge, that "dragons became such a cliche". Hope to finish it to beat this notion.
yohann - thanx.

Gunilla
03-05-2006, 09:22 AM
I really like his pose in the left one - very strong emotion. I think it could work well even if we don't see his face. Perhaps you could have a pool of rain reflecting a part of him? A glimpse of a sad eye could be enough.

Wintermute
03-05-2006, 09:44 AM
Looking great so far! I prefer the looking away pose as well. Drooping arms, ears and wings with the head kinda hanging low really carry the emotion.

The little bit of modeling progress looks pretty good too! Keep it up! :beer:

Jelmer
03-05-2006, 10:06 AM
nice concept sketches :thumbsup:

ecura
03-05-2006, 01:19 PM
I think this one is hard to judge. The one on the left tells more of a sad situation with the little dragon face back. Arrows is also a good placement because it tells some kind of action has taken place much more then just a dead man. The right, the dragon looks as if it didn't really care. His tilted head seem to have that attitude. Have you consider making the little dragons head looking towards the ground. I think a study of animal (I think cats and dog run through these emotion) behavour when they are sad, scared, worried might help you find a good solution.

Cleveland
03-05-2006, 01:30 PM
beautiful concept. so sad. it's tough to decide between the two because of the lure of seeing the baby dragons face doesn't fit with the telling pose on the left. maybe if you keep the dragons same pose (in 3d local space) but turn the baby dragon slightly in the world then you could get a 1/4 view of the face without compromsing the silhouette too much. you've got skills so this is going to be great either way.

Gunilla - Perhaps you could have a pool of rain reflecting a part of him? A glimpse of a sad eye could be enough.
Man, bro, you know what is funny? I made a little sketch of your suggestion and to me a shape of sad eye looks kinda different in reflected way. Looks almost like happy eye. And I am not talking about sad mouth shape, hah :sad: :)

Wintermute - cheers :beer:

Jelmer - thanx mate!

ecura - animal study sounds good. I will do the search, but for now, I prefer looking back pose too. Thanx for your opinion.

Cleveland - yeah, better to tweak lil oneīs pose after I will have his modeling and expression done. Thank you for "about skills" compliment :thumbsup:

Here is new modeling update. Progressing kinda slow, I know :) Thanx you all for your opinions on my concept comparasion. For modeling I am still looking for topology correction comment from you folks, in order to make this character useful for later animation.

se7enthcin
03-05-2006, 10:35 PM
So far the modeling looks really clean. Keep it up! :)

shakes
03-06-2006, 12:57 AM
looks nice and clean to me- I'm not much of an animation expert, but I guess you might want some loops around the wing base where it joins the body for rotation/ movement.
I like your sketches BTW..look forward to seeing this evolve!

monks - Man, I want to see this in real origami... somebody is on very hard way to do it :applause: My next wip will be the paper one, hehehe. Thank you for compliment.

burpy - yeee, dragon man! But I think I canīt go for exactly this origami style for final pict. I am afraiding about low poly look because of comparasion with other high detailed threads of this challenge. I will probably go for something in the middle of this 2 extremes.

This should be final lowpolygonal model for BIG MOM. I did some fast coloring in order to feel it better. Enjoy it.
Now, its time for LIL ONE. I will tweak this lowpolys later.

This is such a wonderful model! Are you planning to keep some of the boxy look for the highres version? I think you should - it could be really special.
Looking forward to the poor little baby then, good luck! :)

I'm hoping that you'll keep using your unique style. Don't feel intimidated by all the realistic entries, they are just more of the same, your's on the other hand..

Man I like it!

Good luck

Looking great! Although you say that it would get unnoticed amongst the realistic entry's - but it's standing out very well right now!:)

I agree that you should keep some of that style for the characters. My only concern is it may be a little hard to integrate into the background, but that depends on how you're planning to do that.

Looking forward to updates!

Fantastic little dragon i think we repeat those words too much but realy worth it, let me tell you something, when i was trying to find an original idea i couldn't come up with one easily and i'm still searching for it and when i think i found an idea i figure out later that it looks like another one in site from china or from america or so on, it is so hard to make original thing nowdays lot of artists are digging so hard we just have to collect their stones.. he he :) how did you find a way to design new original creatures like that?

Letīs have a break from creatures for a while. Did some fancy geometery and 3D scene test. Feel free to let me know what should I tweak + do you like those arrows?

Good morning,

burpy - ha ha, you are almost right dragonman. Sketch is brand new, but I did use almost whole topology from BIG MOM in my 3D. Getting lazy, yeah. Or... eee... getting faster, hah :twisted:

makaron - :) I will probably name this image "And the Rain"... ha ha. OK, One for arrows. Thank you.

Gunilla
03-14-2006, 10:20 AM
Comp looks good - very sad with the rain and all... I like the back arrows but maybe not the ones close up - think they might draw attention from the lil' one, but that, of course remains to be seen when textured.
This is going really great :)

Ready with handkerchiefs? This should be final lowpolygone stage for "our lilīorphan". Now there is a time to play with enviroment. When I am finished with the enviroment than I will know how to tweak my lowpoly creatures. 72 days left, emmmm...looks good so far.

makaron - yeeeeaaa, we can borrow GP we can borrow GP we can borrow GP :scream: Eeeee, stop, now I am confused. I am not sure about his usual meals. Ups.

komsa - ha ha, low poly drops will do to me too. They are here only for fun, not really for image.

MichaelMotion - Thank you so much. Will need you here in order to keep this style alive. Keep watching.

BrianC - Thanx. I love them in lowpoly too, but I will ad some more details for final image. Will see how strongly.

Climax - feel free :thumbsup:

shakes - Thank you Mr. As mentioned before, I am going for kinda semipoly look. Something between that two extremes.

FlaminGlow - yep. Still here, still fresh, ha ha.

Gunilla - So happy that you feeling it that way. Cute and Sad :applause:

SONIC-X - Indeed, that is. Thanx for droping some nice words around here. Cheers.

I like this one, the original concept sketch is very dramatic.

There is one thing about this one that is nagging me a bit though.

His legs, they are different from the concept and are bend the wrong way. If you go for "realistic" that is.
I don't know if it is mentioned before since I didn't feel like reading through all those pages just for this post. If you'd like to change the leg the way it does fit, you wouldn't even have to adjust the foot part(till where it bends) just divide the upper part of the leg and the lower leg would become the foot. whereas the upper leg would be the upper and lower leg.

Good Job! I liked mainly the compositions and the idea. They transmit a very strong message as the image is not directly about a great jouney

Keep up the good job!

Oweron its just looking beautiful! I love the posture of the baby- which really emotes, I love the background scenery, I love how true youve been to the concept design, and the multi-faceted style is so original and really works! Its a real joy to watch this thread! Looking forward to your next update!

Very nice models and the feel of it is quite depressed. That definitely comes across instantly. I think you should watch the symmetry of the model. It feels slightly posed at the moment as his feet and arms and everything is so symmetrical. I guess this is probably because you're more in the early modelling stages, non? Otherwise, it's coming along nicely.

Hi Dvade

I love the expression on the face, and the stylized look.
Now is he sad or mad? Just thinking in showing a little more on the eyes or something.

Love it though

Ahojte,

makaron - No, the lilīone is on his way to first teaparty behaviour lesson :bounce: no jumping, :beer: no beer, :drool: no disgusting things, etc. Just have your tea ready. Iīll let you know the time.

daniel cestari - thanx for your comment. Hope it is not necessary to have direct journey vision for this challenge. This image should evoke feelings right on the start of one not really wanted journey. The journey begins.

lostboy - thanx for nice words. He is not actually kicked out. He didnīt do anything bad at all. The reason should be clear from my concept sketches - Mother is dead not by the hands of nature, home is not safety anymore, fear, sadness, long journey in front of...

dragonrouge - yeah, with such a nickname you suits perfectly to my thread :thumbsup:

medunecer - haha, why not to start yourself? Eeeeah, you are doing such a great work with your style. Keep going.

Selina42 - This is so warm for my heart. Thank you for such a nice words. Aaahh...

thierry2005 - Thank you. Feel free to watch, feel free to post.

Vedic kings - You really love it? Glad you love it :thumbsup: Keep watchinī

jamiemccarter - Thanx for your suggestion! I am going to rig them and pose them close to what you can see on sketches. They are modeled with idea to be ready for animation, so...

authentic - What can I say, authentic? This is such a strong compliment :bounce:

mac_andre - Thank you. Hard edges rulez :buttrock: ha ha ha. Will see on final how strong.

smallone3d - ha ha ha, did you just name me Dvade? Sweet :applause: Dvade Tride is name for my slow business. It actually mean 2D 3D. Thanx for your feedback. Will keep it in mind for final pose.

FlaminGlow - Thank you. There will be no such a smooth. I am not really sure about exact final look, but Iīve got some nice ideas.

gpepper - Glad you love it. You are working on such a great thread yourself :thumbsup:

The cave looks good, although I liked the sketch more, it looked more "jagged".

melkao - hah, no problem at all. Letīs call it woock. You know what? Letīs call this style WOOCK :beer:

funkyboss - Glad you LOVE it! Thank you so much for such a nice words.

Dervish - Thank you. Yep, unsmoothing is what we want, ha ha :thumbsup:

luigithekid - Yes, I see your point. It looks good by itself. To me, that jaggy look might be too disturbing for main idea.

oceanbluesky - Did you find that scene wires useful? Thatīs perfect. Thanx for nice words. Good luck to you too!

Gunilla - hey, my BROsis! Here we go again. Small update on the way :cool:

I really like the ground texture. I believe it works well with the scene. I still cannot get over how nicely your modeling technique works with the polygon look. Nice job!

It is working so well... I can't crit now, I will wait for further WIP.

se7enthcin - nice words my friend, thank you. On the other hand, I still cannot get over how somebody can make such a detailed models within the same time as I am playing with few polygons, ha ha ha. Thatīs probably something around nature :thumbsup:

funkyboss - Thank you. Keep watchinī Hope to keep it to your satisfaction.

stavrevstefan - hm, why should I? Ha ha, just kidding :D This is not the final version, but If you are expecting something highly smooth, than I have to say sorry too.

makaron - aaah, I am so sorry. Weīve got few more lessons. BTW: Let me introduce our teaparty teacher
