11-29-2007, 12:14 PM
Love the look and feel of this short film. I saw the comment about illumination from someone but I found the illumination to be one of teh strongest points. I didn't quite get the story (is there anything more than meets the eye?) but it always makes me laugh at the end which demonstrates your visual storytelling ability. I hope ot some day be able to produce something of similar calibre. Congratulations on your award, you truly deserved it.


11-29-2007, 01:37 PM

Wish you a very Happy New Year.

01-02-2008, 09:08 AM
I really like the visual design, especially the clouds. Mod is great, also.
The only thing I can reproachis is the sound design : the cartoon foleys that are too basic in my opinion.
Otherwise very good realization.

01-14-2008, 12:03 PM
Hi, first of all i like to congratulate you for this wonderfull job.

Second, i am a student of 3d In brazil and have a great intressting in this type of cartoon style, but i dont have a great experiance in 3d in this style in 3d studio and a wish to know how do you come to this result, like witch render do you use and the type of illumination, the type of material well this stuffs.

sorry the noobs questions and the horrible english heheheh and once again congratulations for your job

01-14-2008, 08:47 PM
eewibisono: Hi there, thanks for the complement. The grass was made out of maya fur with a lot of tewaking of course.

ashiataka: Hey thanks man... I'll also look forward to your next artwork. All the best to u!

Run3D: Thank you and happy new year to you too!

burgulkut: Hi thanks for your comment. The sound was done very amaturely with very basic setup and tools. Hopefully next time it would be better.

scharth: Hi, Thanks for the kind works. I used Maya as the main 3D application. For the rendered I used Mental Ray and I used a lot od SSS materials for this project. Almost all the characters has SSS materials applied to them. Lighting was with basic Direct Lights and the Rim light was achived using custom shader network. Hope that helps... Thanks again

Hey thanks for all the support guys... it really makes it worth the effort.
