This is my concept. A young boy weilds a wooden shield and sword as he stands at the entrance to a giant castle. The only light in the castle comes from a room in the tallest tower.

Interesting idea, but I would change the angle of the view so the viewer can see the expression/reaction of the character and the grand castle.

Isnt he cute?

awww.... yeah he's really cute. seeing this i would agree with bkeiser3d, you better not hide his face from the viewer.. perhaps you put the cam behind the castle, so we see the lil guy from the tower or something, this way you might catch both the monstrous castle and the heros expression.. anyway, keep it up!;)

looks exactly like my idea of a dragon :)

your image is looking very good Walter (and creepy), I like a lot your perspective, don't worry about the lack of replies...

Hello Walter.

Perhaps you need to work more on your textures. You must keep in mind that your final entry should be at print resolution (no less than 300 dpi). Double-check the challenge's guidelines (http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/journey_begins/instructions.php). As it stands now, your textures seem very low-res. Also, try creating various maps for diffuse, bump, specular, reflection, etc.

Here's a link that should help you out: http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=261614&highlight=texturing+dummies

Good luck. :)

Our young Viking in training prepares himself to storm the castle. Though the task is daunting he resolves to fight his way through the castle and rescue the maiden at the topmost tower.



Unfortunatley my machine is not powerfull enough to render it out at full resolution.
