hello challengers!

i will try to make an image with a ~John Bauer feel, but with more crazy characters.
despite the toony concepts, i will try to make a mix of cartoony shapes and realistic textures later, once i start 3d(like som characters on my old website)

strange behaviours and scene ideas coming later. I just feelt like doing some characters sketches as a warmup.

Another thread to comment on!? And you said m@ was like virtuoso.... Tsk!

Awesome! how do you do these things...........I love them........truly you are the greatest,best,most amazing artist in the world! you have been given the gift of creativity from the hands of the creator himself........please tell me how you make everything so perfect....amazing ebayer A++++++++++

:p

Seriously though, you are one of the most gifted artists for not only creating wonderfully stylistic cartoon characters but successfully turning them into great 3D models too. Not to mention I love John Bauer...

So, I genuinely look forward to seeing what comes next.

Good luck!

i'm thinking it could be fun to do this pic with a frog-eye composition and with a more realistic character/environment. but maybe that would become to disgusting..

HI Anders,
Its the 1sth time I see your style!Fantastic!!!.. very stylish for 3 d I love it, also my fav, as in concept so far its the 1sth one since I like simple relationships that are easy to relate with and they also guive a wider field for madness!

The big guy its funy but a bit ovious allready and not so unexpected maybe as the 1sth one.
You allready are haveing fun but keep it, that way it is looking great!

thanks alot everyone!! i think i will go with the last idea, but change the background to something with a theme that fits and adds to the story more(thanks to tips from my kompis Mathias Verhasselt)


david,
getting payed to be at a festival woaw.. nah, I am really glad you are having a blast there!! say hey to Goro!(maybe there are other ppl i know at the same place?)

erilaz,
don't be jelous, i just took time where there was none. i will have to suffer like... now... :D


here is a slight update to the troll mamas design. nothing mayor, mainly some cloth addition and a change of jaw and chin.

here is the first modeling wip. the mudboxing is kinda temp and took only 15-20 min. didn't wanna spend to much time on that as the face is still not unwrapped!

Anders that modeling is really impressive. Just to know what is on her nose (I like it even I 'm not sure of the reference) ? Is it like a chimney ?
A (good/bad?) idea. Your picture is about growth (baby and plants), As the plant felling is really onthe focus on the picture and as your mama as a very potatoes like nose, maybe you can made tiny plants growthing from it (or just from the pimple ). here 's a link to be understandable :
http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/hort/news/hortmatt/2005/03hrt05a2f1.jpg

It doesn't have to be enormou, but maybe just 1 or 2 can accentuate the mix between human and plants.

Intervain
07-10-2007, 01:38 AM
I think it's a mushie on that nose LOL... I like it so far, really funny...not quite to keen on that pinching around the base of the mushroom, makes her nose feel a bit like a sausage...

AxelAlonso

wt...? Compare to my first modeling wip, which took me 10 times longer than what yours, I am speachless. 20 minutes with this amount of details? Where do I live? ...congratulations :thumbsup:

thanks everyone!!


Vincent,
as others already pointed out before me, its a mushroom. maybe i will place more of them on her body. kinda like the shells and sea things on the characters in pirates of the caribbean. i like your idea and will see how i can implement it later, i love when ppl bring ideas!


Intervain,
yea, i tend to agree with the nose pinching on the top. i will take care of that.


Oweron,
it was only the mudboxing which went that fast, and its not really a lot of mudboxing. i already had a pretty good base that took much longer than 20 min to do :)
here is the wireframe of the current model, ready for facial animation.

I just had to take out some time to tell u that you've done an awesome job modeling that head so far. The model's mass and proportions look awesome along with the details. Question: The concept has a very cartoonish approach but the model is moe in the realm of realism, Which approach will you take?

Great work fellah!! I'm loving the texture on the lady's clothes. Really nice touch! :love:

I like the design continuity you have going as well. May I suggest making the old lady's arms a bit saggy? You know, that old woman hanging fat thing? May conflict with the proportional design you have, but thought it may be worth a mention.:shrug:

Chiko
08-16-2007, 03:58 AM

thanks!

not sure this is worth posting, but it was a while ago since last, so why not.

apart from the obvious BG paintover the baby has been tweaked and unwraped and the troll mamas arms have been unwraped as well.
any ideas/comments are much appreciated.

Nice to see you back anders. I like the lighting, nice colors.
I just think that, with the stick, the grandma left arm would be too symetrical with the right one. Maybe put the stick a little more before her.

Vincent,
heya! yea when u mention it I see it. i changed my concept(which where more like u suggested) to this to have a more clear silhouette.
but now i think it will be better to do what u said. i will fix the arms later once they are rigged better. right now I'm concentrating on the whole pic, to get some BG done and see where
the pic is heading.


Zubuyer,
hah, i wonder that myself.. i hope i will finish, i will do my best to do so at least. to long since i last finished a challenge. and it would feel
shitty to have struggled so far and leave this unfinished...


thanks everyone else as well for your support!

here is another update, starting to build the BG. I am still not sure if i want the fireplace AND the walls to all be made out of wood/bark. anyone else feel this looks strange?
i might change the fireplace to stone.. i will see. comments much welcome!

Anders. It looks like you will finish this challenge. What an incredible news :scream:
I like your last update, just maybe try to keep the right part of your background really dark ?
For me it's not a problem to have a whole wood environment, just a question of choice. Im not sure about it, but inside the fireplace, maybe it could be a little clearer (not much, just a little because you have very bright back light on characters that are more far from their light source).

thanks mate!

Gilles, Zubuyer and Carlos,
thanks for the constant support through this challenge, you guys are the ones who rock!

Martin,
thanks! sadly this scene is to much for me to animate well.. it would need fire fx, water fx, cloth, hair movement etc.. it would be overkill so i won't do more than a little flythrough of the scene without the FX animated. maybe not even that infact. maybe i will only enter the open categories, i will see what time permits.

thanks alot for the support during this challenge btw!

Gilles and Martin,
thanks for your support!
if i had entered the illu challenge i would probably have finishedby now, animating the scene was to much for my time schedule and i learnt my lesson.
i decided i didn't wanna finish something fast or try the illu challenge to have a chance on the prices. i prefer finish it properly someday.
this challenge has pushed me to work on things/styles i didn't for a very long time and i learnt a looot during the way, which is the only price i ever wished for. pretentious, but true..:)
anyhow your words means a lot to me as i have become a fan of your works during this challenge. now get back to work on yours and take a place among the top ! :P
