For centuries the krems have been living a peaceful life in secret on the island of Mirk, but they are soon to be discovered by the forbs who have settled down on the east of the island without knowing the krems are living on the westcoast of Mirk. Many tales have been written about the forbs and they aren't bedtime stories. The krems are fearing the worst and sends out a caravan to find a new place far away from the forbs, and start building houses so when the other krems get there with their families they'll have some place to stay. The caravan finds a nice place under some cherrytrees which is very convenient for the krems because they'll get clothing materials and food from it, which is a great asset. Everything is now set and two of the krems from the caravan sets out to bring the rest of the krems from Mirk. The only question is.. will the rest of the krems still be alive?

A caravan with small bugs are on their way to adventure.

Changed my mind, the bugs are out of the picture and now it's the little folks called Krems.
Every thousand year, the Krems have to send out a small group, on a journey to find the rarest flower on the earth and bring back the pollen from it. The pollen are kept in a machine that makes their town completely invisible for everyone but the krems.

Ha Ha, I like this design. So far the modeling and textures are looking good. For some reason I keep seeing a character flying past riding a tricked out snail :)

Good luck,

Nice character , but it deserves better hair and better nose...

good luck my friend...

This is coming along nicely! Just want to point out a few thing, the clothing has no wrinkles which seems odd. I think her figure may still be a tad too boxy still. Also I would start planning out textures now. Its harder than you think. Especially the skin. Do you have Ztransp and alpha map on? You should throw in a alpha blend texture, and add a ramp shader for variation.

Hi Dan,

Very nice work so far. The girl will look great :)

I agree, the cahracters need more datails, but you have plenty of time ;)

Javisst ja! I remember seeing this in the ealy stage - nice characters, the Krem with discofever totally rocks! :D
I really like the flowers - very simple and still so efficient. The village is adorable.

Har tillbringat dan i trädgårdslandet - hoppas det kommer att blomma lika bra hos mej :)

Great lighting and very nice cartoony style Dan! :D

Can't wait to see the characters and the scene put together :)

one slight crit, make the tree bigger, so you can really see the houses are small.

dunderdan
05-06-2006, 12:57 PM
Gunilla : Hej! Thank you, couldn't help pose him in a discofeverpose :P. Lycka till med blommorna.

Joblh: thanks man, I agree the tree maybe should be a bit bigger to get the feeling of that the krems are small.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

Heisann;
It's really coming together Dan! I like the overall style of the houses, kind of dutch style,very cosy and intertwined! Those oversized flowers are a very nice touch, makes the rest
look more miniatyric! (did I misspell?)
I hope you can make it before 27th, cause this is gonna be a great render!
Lykke til kjære nabo!
