I will go for this look, most likely, a little weak, sad, unsecure alien in the human world :)

Hi.

Well, this is the first time I'm entering the challenge.
I liked the topic, I liked that it actually doesnt have to be based on the book.
Always been fascinated by aliens ( who wasn't), since I'm actually doing some dull tasks at work, I figured, I will try to make an interesting trailer, maybe something more...

I have the basic idea, and. well... I just hope I'll finish it :)

grzesiekj
03-23-2008, 07:01 AM
Here is the dilema.
I have the idea for the whole , well, teaser, short, or whatever.
But I really dont want to spoil it.
can I just post the partial treatment, or partial animatic, without the last scene, last shot??


Anyway, my sad little alien , finds himself in a locked glass room. He wakes up, drowsy, shocked, he doesnt really remember what happened to him.
Slowly, the images of what happened come back, like a painful flash backs...
He has been traveling... he lost control of the navigation... he crashed....
He has been found by... humans?? they didnt understand him... he has been tortured...

well, I dont want to say anything more yet :)

He's a cute little guy :D

Can't imagine you'd have a problem with leaving the last scene out...I think the storyboard/pre-vis "stage" of the contest is just to show that you're planning out your work.

Hey, Grzegorz! I just watched The Mist yesterday, great film, I know there wasn't a big VFX budget but the CG kicked a lot of ass anyways. Can't wait to see what you come up with here.

Hey, thanks guys, but you know, the key is not to start, but to complete the project.
That will be the most difficult part :)

Started working on the body. I guess this is the most boring part of the project for me, can't wait to start texturing.

I also agree with Pyke....we might as well throw in the towel right now :( :(

Is your alien rigged yet?

Georgie
04-04-2008, 05:02 PM
I've seen your demoreel in your portfolio. Aren't you supposed to be among the judges? ... Just joking! Anyway, impressive work indeed. I can't wait to see your storyboard!

grzesiekj
04-04-2008, 10:38 PM
Thanks.
Actually, I had to redo UV completely.
These were just too sloppy.
I'm still working on the overall look, so this it will change.

Tyson, no, this one is not rigged yet, although, I have put the biped guide inside the mesh :)
I'm using Softimage XSI for it.

So, I have been working on some blend shapes.
This is the test, I'm still working on it, before I start binding to the rig.

I will try and post update soon.

ivanisavich
04-11-2008, 05:47 AM
Hey mate...pretty awesome!

I have to say though....I'm not entirely sure I'm a fan of the erratic breathing motion. At first it almost looked like the skin was rippling, as opposed to expanding/contracting.

I think maybe if you tone it down a bit it'll look better....like, take out the cheek motion and some of the neck motion.

grzesiekj
04-11-2008, 05:54 AM
Hi.
you are most likely right, however, I will have to see how these blendshapes work with the overall body and head motion. I made some other test with just the camera moving around the static head, and these shapes are way less visible, so, Ill just wait and see how it behaves in the actual shot.

Thanks for the comment though.

Ah very true very true!

04-11-2008, 08:14 AM
at the top of his head during the mid shot there's a ridge in his skull. it feels a little to severe a change so wondered if it was intentional - if it is then it'll probably feel nice in a shot with more rotation etc.

going very nice :)

hey there! nice test animation! i liked the previous render of his eyes tho, with the flushed white or light blueish color...looks more alien than the one you have in the test anim.

Cographicz
04-11-2008, 03:07 PM
i sould not crit but i like the old eyes you had that made the creature look blind but other then that i love the scar detail around the mouth and i think the mouth fits the the alien well. keep up the good work.

i have liked your work since the begining and i would say the only thing about the shaders is that your taking away from the detail of the scars on the chest area, if going for realism then you sould show off the great texture work you have done as well as shadows and shaders. other then that the peice is coming together wonderfully, im impressed.

Hi there ;)
Here is the first anim WIP, with the rig somewhat starting to be usable, still tons of stuff to do, I have no idea what to do with the long stringy things for example :)

Hello. I like the lighting but some parts of skin seem to be too glossy (cheast part especially ) It doesen't fit the lighting for other parts of the body like shoulders et.

Cheers!

jimmydog
04-14-2008, 01:43 PM
Really really a great job!!!

maybe the long stringy things could be a sort of sixth sense for the alien or an uplift of ear and then move exploring the air around the head.?

I Rest tuned for updates

Im happy with the spec around the eyes and nose/mouth area though.

rorkijon
04-17-2008, 10:29 PM
believable, scarily so.
I love the fast rate of breathing, like he can't get enough out of the air for his alien lungs without doubling the rate of breaths.
and the glistening works for me, I see it as a comination of sweat, snot/mucus, and tears.
I'd pay to watch a movie with that in, more believable than AVP for a start.

great work. perhaps to much dof (the alien look like a doll in the animation).
40s/frame on what kind of pc ?
do you make some color correction or is it the hdri colors ?

Hi.
Glad you like it so far.
Still tons of stuff to do...

I'm not using any hdri, just area lights. Yes the whole thing is colorcorrected.

The shaders are amazing! I'd love to get even 50% of that level of realism in my entry... all the coments on animation, I agree, but I guess it's just a blocking-in of action, and will be refined later... Do you have a story, or just the actors yet? I'm really interested in what's gonna happen to the poor guy...

heh, heh - it's all so natural looking - bloke holding steering, needs to check map, picks up map in one hand then let's go of wheel completely to look at map!!! He just needs to lean forward slightly and steer it with his elbows like the locals here do...! That would be hilarious, this is brilliant work, I check back here every day now, what a great artist/performance.

That's really great stuff. I think the modeling, movement, texture and lighting are extraordinary. I especially like the pulsating chest and the deformations around the armpits and neck. The only thing I noticed as odd, and this is after a close second viewing, is that the alien's right trapezius bulges a little too much when he's holding the instructions/map. I can't wait to see the next clip.

Hey Grzegorz, everything is super amazing.

Are you using XSI to model/rig everything and then LW/Fprime to render out?

How is this pipeline working for you?

Thanks,

Gian

04-26-2008, 09:56 AM
Hey thanks ;)
Glad you like it so far.

Well, overall I'm planning to do 25 shots (!!!) 17 will include character(s).
... I know, way too much, but maybe .. one day I will finish it ;)


XSI - Fprime pipe is working pretty well. I have made the whole 8 minutes short (ARK) using combination of both, and I'm pretty happy with the overall speed. Its just that creating render layers in LW is so painful...

But the speed makes it up for it :)

Yeah. funny, I have noticed it in the render, somehow missed it in Open gl previews. You are right., I will fix it in the next pass, hopefully - :)

The first shot, with the vertical perspective, is crazy, i love it, and the last one too :buttrock:
I have a crit for the other though (only a minor detail, but you love details isn't it? :D )

...

(ok...it's maybe a tactic to slow you a bit :D )



in the shot 2 and 3: the dof seems a bit too regular there, it looks similar at the ship, and at the feets of your Alien. If it was a closer shot, it will not be a problem, but here, with the full alien body, it disturb me a bit.
The result is that the Alien seems a bit "paste" on the blurred background.

Hello :)

I'm glad you guys like it.
I have serious concerns though, if I iwll actually make it on time.
I have a teaser 99% ready (30 sec edit), I borrowed the music from my short ARK for it, and it works pretty well edited a bit.
Now, for the whole piece, wich will be about 90 sec long, I still have 3 more shots to go.
All assets are done though, so with a bit of luck, maybe Ill finish it on time.

I still havent figured out the music for film though.

Oh, and studiozeronove, I'm using combination of SoftimageXSI for modelling , rigging and animation - and Lightwave for all the rendering.

thanks

This is one of the best entries in my opininon, but then again we don't expect anthing less from you! :)
I really like this trailer, but one thing buggs me, and that's the use of the white portrait of your alien twice. To me it looks as if you're out of clips and recycle what you got.
Anyway, I'd really like to see a finished short, so the trailer works for me!

Best luck!

and here it is:

http://www.3dluvr.com/jonkajtys/challenge/edit_new.wmv (http://www.3dluvr.com/jonkajtys/challenge/edit_new.wmv)

I will be putting some making of tomorrow, and I will upload proper flash link.

I have been using Softimage XSI (for all modeling, rigging and animation)
Lightwave (for some additional modeling, shaders, lighting and rendering)
Fprime (for rendering)
I have also used some Zbrush here and there, and a lot of practical effects, props, and all "in camera" tricks - that made the whole process fun :)

Hope you enjoy it.

ivanisavich
06-15-2008, 06:22 AM
Hey mate,

Wonderful to see it done! I enjoyed it very much :)

One question though, that was slightly confusing about the ending.....in the beginning when the ship was landing, it looked like there were houses underneath of it. Then, when the alien got out everything was destroyed. I assumed that the destruction was caused by the massive impact of the ship landing (which would make the situation very ironic, because he unintentially destroyed the lifeforms he was coming to visit)...but at the end it seemed as though the destruction was caused by the atomic blast described in the newspaper? Anyways, I wasn't sure....

Great work!

grzesiekj
06-15-2008, 06:29 AM
Hey Tyson.
I'ts actually a good point.
I assumed the houses underneath when the ship is landing wouldn't mean too much.
But if this makes you feel confused, I think I might actually change this matte painting. Afterall its an easy fix. :)

Thanks

G.

But right now.. Im watching BSG last episode :)

ivanisavich
06-15-2008, 06:38 AM
Hmmm....I'd almost suggest keeping the houses in, and taking the last newspaper shot out. Then maybe (if you have time...I know time is short) inserting a very short shot when he lands showing the impact of the ship on the ground (something short like, the ship touching down with the camera close to it, and a massive shockwave of dust hitting the screen--then cut to black).

I thought the theme of unintentional destruction was powerful (a warning for us, since we often make impacts on our environment that we don't realize), whereas the theme of nuclear holocaust seems less creative. That being said, if you do take the houses out, that would certainly make the nuclear holocaust theme clearer, and it would probably be just as strong (since some people might not "get" the environmental destruction theme, whereas the nuclear holocaust theme is much "clearer").

grzesiekj
06-15-2008, 06:46 AM
Nuclear holocaust, yes.
look at the date on the newspaper :)

All this environmental destruction thing, is completey unintentional, lol
All the backgrounds, are infact my former backyard. - I didnt alter it in anyway. its just the dirt on the ground. Funny you see it as a destructed earth :) hehe, one cheap flashlight, dirt and a cheapy camera .

Grzegorz....amazing. You definitely have an eye for awsome camera work!

After seeing your making of aswell, I didnt realise that so many practicle elements were used in the final film. Its amazing that the first thing we think is 'do it in CG', where honestly, you pulled off some INCREDIBLE shots with a flashlight and some gravel. Its definitely changed my way of thinking how 'cg shorts' can be done.
I would love to see a more detailed making of, not nessesarily in video format, but as a CGTalk feature. I have a feeling that no matter the winner of the challenge, that the CGSociety will ask you for such an article. ;)

With regards to the story, I was on the same page as Tyson until the final shot. I thought that the (small?) alien, with its massive ship, had destroyed the city below it. The final shot did put me on the correct path tho.

The sound is awsome. Its got a James Cameron feel to it. I watched Aliens again (for the 100 000 000'th time), and the shots where they come across the derilict (directors cut), has almost the exact sound design as your short. You are in amazing company!

Excellent camera work, shot design, concept, story, sound, and editing. You, along with Tyson, should sweep the individual categorys-no questions asked! It has truely been a pleasure to enter the challenge with you, and if anything, I have grown from watching you work!

Hey, thanks for the great feedback.
Im happy you liked it.

Pyke, yes the practical stuff always adds this element of reality into the shot, plus it's so much fun to do.
And with really cheap HD cameras nowdays, there is no reason not to do it :)

Cheers
