And,. jep this is where the journey begins...
First sketch.
Some very small robots living in trees, whit only one question on their random access memory.. - are we alone?

now thats a strange idea,.. maybe a bit too strange...

Not strange at all Dan. Looks kind of like 'Robots' meet the ewoks so far, I like the concept sketch.
Is that a rat they are loading up at the back there?

Good to see you on CGs, still working on concepts, if I go with this one it will have to be more "widescreen"..

nice to see you in this contest... idea nr. 1 sounds nice... keep going :thumbsup:

another idea.
A small robot with a backpack, entering a vast labyrinth..
hmm,. maybe the first one was better,.

makaron
03-02-2006, 12:13 AM
I like the first a tiny bit better. Why? hmmm... seems to have more "stronger image" to it... haha. its to late to give smart answers now... :bounce:

Hey danny,

how about placing a gigantic junkyard into the background... something your robot hast to accomplish. Just a humble thought :thumbsup: Great sketches... keep going!

Hmmm, yeah, i think you'r right,.
maybe a combination of the two...

Hey danny,

how about placing a gigantic junkyard into the background... something your robot hast to accomplish. Just a humble thought :thumbsup: Great sketches... keep going!

Not a bad idea:thumbsup:
i had been thinking about a plazza i the middle of the labyrinth with some sparepart shop, but that might be a bit far out.



-
I think I will go with a combination of the two sketches forground from the first and the labyrinth from the last and the widescreen format, more robots, more rats, more robo treehouses,.

Hmm,. as i made this sketch i found out that this is way to cheesy to me.
just too happy, happy, joy, joy and too toonish,.
I think I'll go with the idea thogh, but with a more sci-fi SW'ish style to the robots, I don't want it to look too Disney/Pixar but a bit more rough.
theese small robots don't know why they exist and the have heard about humans, and now they want to meet the creator of their kind, so a team is send out to on a long journey, to see if they realy exist and if they are the only one of their kind.
low-fi robots in high-fi environment ewok style.

Nature ewok background may be interesting with your robots.
concept sketch is really interesting, wait to see more !

hmm,. I know this is a very fast done sketch, bu i just want to illustrate what i want to do with the robots.

just a lot of components that everybody knows the size of, to give the robot scale and a bit more less cheesyness.

Hey Danny, this looks like fun..and it's just begun..goody! I like the concept of the robots finding out who made them..very original! your sketches are great.

Grin3d
03-07-2006, 02:35 AM
hmm, danny, do you think the "journey" - theme and story is enough clear on sketch nr. 3 without any description ? maybe it isn't necessary.
... I like the your idea much !

Gunilla

Yup - agree with the rest here - the last sketch and the style for your robots can make a really interesting contrast. The monitor face for the robot is a nice touch :thumbsup:

makaron
03-07-2006, 07:06 AM
The monitor face gives a new dimenstion.. :bounce:

I have some ideas that will say "journey" robots loading the rats, some info monitors, banners and robots waving goodbye or stuff like that

cheers ,

-Zapan

Thanks Stephane

Yeah I'll go with the last one, but as i was finishing the sketch the robot just looked too "robots" like, so I'll change them into something else, more rough i think.

Yep, I'll go with the last environment and sketch a bit more on the new robodesign.

Thanks Mona

Yeah I was hoping to create a robot that could show expresion on the "facemonitor" rather than the good old toonish robo style..
I'll just work a bit more on the concept for the robots.

a bit more work on the robot,..
Now no more doodeling on to modeling!!
This will roughly be what I will go with,.
this robot and the sci-fi ewokish robo treecity,. Zion, he he.

the micro robo ewok matrix.

OK, As it has become tradition for me in the challange, I have to break something apart to shoot photos of the good stuff. some might remember the flower from the last challange,...
OK, this time it's my son's radiocontroled car that was sacrificed in the name of ref material. Some might also remember that my girfriend left me during the last challange, so my son is not here this week, i will ofcause replace the car before he notises,. hopefully he never see this thread it might be traumatic for him.

well, all for the challange...

more photos to come..

Hi boss,

iam really enjoying your progress so far, but ive seen youve modelling robots before, so iam looking forward to the Rat that you are going to make. Fur and expressions are some things that gonna make the Rat pop out.

Also your texturing is always a nice thing to follow, I know you can do it...

Shes like butter!

Cheers mate...

the grill kindof bothers me, since everything is really small, the grill would be _REALLY_ small to fit on the robot...

Elentor
03-13-2006, 07:11 PM
I think the grill would work better on the back. You could put a transparent glass in the front so we can see his skeleton and the grill system on the back.

Good luck :)

Yeah the rat will be at personal challange, let's hope i works out right..

I think I'll model everything before i texture this time, if i can find the patience, he he


still waiting for the six cylinders...

Btw, you SUCK! :scream:

Thanks mumle, and you need a job!


nice modelling so far...hungry for more!!

Hi Lemog!
Thanks, and yeah, It's a full dayjob to keep up with all in the challange, he he.
sorry about the red car, i was dead before the disection,.
My son is turning two years on the 30th this month and thanks! yep wonderfull son!

I'll get on with more polys...

It looks like you can cook something inside of the chest. :) Looking good so far...

He he,. thanks,. a walking microwave..

great stuff Danny-give us more!!

Thanks again Shakes,. still on it,. :thumbsup:

the grill kindof bothers me, since everything is really small, the grill would be _REALLY_ small to fit on the robot...

Yeah wll, I want to give it some extra depth by adding som ekind of transperantsy to the chest, in think the best and most natural to do that was a thin metal thread grill i a plastic frame,. yeah it's reallt small,. he he

I think the grill would work better on the back. You could put a transparent glass in the front so we can see his skeleton and the grill system on the back.

Good luck :)

Hi Elentor
Yeah, that might work as well, but i think i'll give him a small battery backback for the journey in sted, thanks for the idea though,.
the idea is that the grill is the only difference between male and female,
female grill later..

Yes!!! :bounce: How are you Danny? I love this theme and you've a good start my friend. I'm waiting for more. :thumbsup:

Hi Alan!!
Thanks, i'm allright,.
Yeah, the theme is a bit more happy this time, he he
I'll get to work on updates,.

Good to talk to you again my friend.

Are you in the challange this time, I haven't been abel to find you??

It's hard for me to see those fingers clearly. I was just thinking, that it may be difficult to grab anything with them. But, maybe I'm wrong. Looks great by the way. :thumbsup:

Hello Danny !

Nice to see you entering, and very cool concept. What is it with you and robots btw?

I like the idea that the robot's are builded by small components, is they as tiny as mouses? The sketch and the robot are very simular, very nicely done.

No critic just a message to say hi really :thumbsup: Keep it up.

Batterybackpak - great idea! The model is coming on real sweet - I like that grid in his front. Will you see any of his inner body parts? As in robot anatomy - that's funny :)

You see thats where you are wrong, the batterys will ofcause be the aaaaZX ultra power stick that will be invented in late june 2012, this battery can run everything from lawnmovers to mp7 players for weeks and have a suncell recharge of 16 seconds.
i asumed you knew that battery, sorry..

mp7 players... Hehehehe... Thanks for revealing. Are you involved in the project, or just testing?

Regarding the batteries and A51, I`m "afraid" they will be from China :D [Not to offend the Chinese-just noticing some changes of our good old world...;]

And coming to the project itself, I really like your idea. But I`m afraid it will be really difficult to show the aim of their trip-to find their own creators. The image should explain everything w/o the underlying story, or I`m wrong...

I remember you`ve mentioned you wanted the robots look a bit low-tech. The modeled one doesn`t. Have you changed your mind? If not-a well-rounded, Spectrum-style green monitor could do the job, I think. Just an idea...

Good luck...

I'll just make it a real big rat..


better and better, very interesting he will be so good with threads and wires, keep it up my friend.

Thanks Alan
Yeah, I hope to make the robots low-tech lilke with nice components,.
hmm, been away from the computer for too long now, better pull my self together and get some work done,.

Hi Silgrin, thanks for feedback.

Yeah, well i have this little lowtech timemachine,.... hmm
A-51 have just benn so secret, they must have some good stuff there, he he
I think you're right about the story it self beeing shown in the image,
I just hope to come up with something alon the way.
Yeah I'm planing on dooing the monocrone greenish monitor, i think i wrote something about it further back in the thread.
I'll get on with it,. stay tuned..

Just a rough model and scanline render to test the scene.

but now i have a guideline to what I'm doing,.

He he,. yea,. i have not been too productive lately.
and yes the background is a temp image found with google..
I'm not sure what to do with the background, but I'm hoping to do something in the line og the image.

MartinNielsen
03-25-2006, 12:16 PM
I think some kind of landscape in the background will be great for the picture. But it should look more alien, I think.

Yeah a landscape of some kind for sure, I'm not sure i should be alien, if the little robots are looking for humans, it must be earth.
(or the forest moon endor, he he)

And a nicely setup for the scenery - the comp works fine so far :thumbsup:

Hej Gunilla

Thanks, yeah been away for the puter for a while, but I'm hoping to get more productive now.
jep, the comp is about what i was hoping for, now i only have to model everything in the scene, heh..


Nice city there...can't wait to see it texturized!:eek:

Thanks Melkao!

This is only a rough model of the scene and an 8 sec render with scanline in max.
everything in the scene will be replaced with the final models, except from the ground.
