well there will be a story too it but basically theres a man traveling ionto the vastness of a new superior and different world and culture. This is when the journey really begins.. maybe its a journey into his immagination

Great idea! This would make for a really good render, too. I always like these kinds of adventure stories... Keep it going!

Oh, and by the way, I would buy a "you know you've been doing CG too long when" calendar... hehe. I often see wireframes on things around me when I blink... :D

I think the character needs to be eccentric looking, like an old British safari bloke or something! Cool concept and like somebody said above, plenty of scope to make this a stunning render! Good luck and thanks for your feedback on my work.

crim..mind ellaborating on it what kind of features would u include what would you change? thanks man

Crin

Maybe change the helmet for a safari type hat? and give him dome binoculars? And a handlebar moustach? Only my personal slant on it but I think it could work quite nicely.

A view of what part of it is going to look like, i may want to zoom in on the character more for a more dramatic effect

what do you think

by the way the safari hat british dude looks better me thinks

Haha, great character so far. He looks awesome just barely peeking over the side like that. Keep it up!

EDIT: Cool, just saw that you're a Junior in High School. I'm a Sophmore... it's nice seeing other young people around these parts... hehe.

You were so helpful in my thread, I wanted to make sure I didn't miss yours.

Your style looks different, did you do something with a blimp-type balloon in the past? I don't remember where I saw it. Nice work, in either case.

Have you thought about the background? The goggles gave me a bit of a think, what if we see the horizon in the reflection of his goggles? It could be almost an extreme close-up, with a fantastic view reflected in them. I think its always interesting to see things that are off camera somehow. Just an idea.

Good luck to you.

good modeling
maybe if you want to make him more funny you should scale the bascket(don t know how it s called in english)
right now he looks like a tall guy with a small head
anyway good luck:thumbsup:

render done in mental ray.. the renderer im gonna use. the idea is that he will just be lifting off from the ground there will be some houses in the backround maybe with people on the roofs waving and stuff the will come the horizon.. the mountains.. and the unknown.

what do you think?

a new character design, the new idea is to have this hobo like mouse setting out on a journey to leave his know land in someones house.. he will be peering off into the distance like the place he is going is vast and uncharted

hope u like
p.s. i changed my idea becuase the compisition was bugging me

You have a great individual style - it's just a pity we can't see the mouse's face, which is a highlight of the design.

This seems to be a problem inherent in the challenge - how to show a character going on a journey into a vista without just seeing their back, which closes the character off somewhat.

Good luck.

Yeah moving forward a bit the depthj of field was just created in photoshop untill i learn how to control max's render better hopefully ill get the composition down soon and get to tweaking.. i know people think lensflares are cheesy but it kinda adds to the oasis in a desert feel and hes setting out on his last leg.. i dunno comments?
