Im in :)

Really great to be in a new challenge!

This is the first idea. I want to explore the possibles relations by the way of an art: the music :) And a bit (or a lot) the idea of a symbiotic relationship.

Good luck to all, have fun! Cheers!!

First!!

Hehe... well I'm really glad to see you join, fresh from the DW :D

I like the idea of rockin' aliens, I'm pretty sure any alien race visiting Earth would fall for for rock, and it would spread like the plague across the space .... God I'd love to see that... hehehe.

Jam hard Fer, these will be wild days, but fun none the less.....
:beer:
Tequila cheers for you!

Hey, you're in at last! Great to see you entered buddy! I loved the pic you did in Strange Behavior.

One possible idea: maybe if that alien is playing a guitar he could have some extra fingers - give him that alien advantage.

Hey Fernando! Great idea to explore music as universal element of communication between so different cultures (aliens and humans).

Good luck my friend!

04-18-2008, 11:26 PM
I like the idea, lots of chance for exploration. Made me think with all the tech and interaction if such occurred, you could have the music respresented visually as well... urm, like... *thinks* synesthesia I believe it was called. Just a random idea. Looked at the other linked challenges and excited to see what you make of this, good luck!

Working on a variation of the first concept. Trying a Jazz-Rock fusion band. My idea is a some kind of symbiotic connection between all the band members :)

jeromoo
04-19-2008, 04:36 AM
Rockband! Someone's been playing Rockband! :)

The idea is a good one! Music unites everyone unless there are hearing impaired aliens! I suggest having a more dramatic angle and poses. Something like this: http://blog.gabrieljeffrey.com/post/16335160 but with better composition like this: http://www.foxtheaterspokane.com/images/uploads/medium_pearl_jam_live_2%5B1%5D.jpg

Also try to have various types of alien body shapes and forms that enable them to play their own unique musical instruments. The result of such combination is an intergalactic sell-outs! :)

All the best, Fernando!

04-19-2008, 10:29 AM
Ditto on Jerome ideas-good call with the references indeed;it'd be cool if the aliens have their own instrument designs, and/or playing them with unusual parts of the body (no sex implied!!) like a sight-sensitive floaty piano interface or something. I'm personally partial to a smoky jazz club with a sexy front alien girl- or not.
Great concepting so far, Fernando, looking forward to seeing how it unwraps itself!

hey hey hey! here's my Fernando! :p my humble apologies for a really late comment :cry:
as always, fun is you! it's in your work ... it shows! :bounce:
for an idea, let the lighting paint your image, let their colours focus/illuminate your characters ... but at the sam time .. don't make it too dark either ... just balance it out ;) ...
me very much looking forward to your next update! :p cheers my friend! :beer: have fun! :thumbsup:

SteevieWoo
04-19-2008, 05:50 PM
Hehehehe, so good, so, you told me many things about your band already, I think a black or aleast darker background would look great , it also would push up the light effcets so you can get a really moody stage for them to play.

I still think you could add a really weird ass piano some where.....:D :D :D
or an alien playing himself as an instrument.... Oooh no! betteer leave that alone..

Hola Fernando! I'm really sorry for replying so late!
You got a killer concept there, that's something I have been thinking of doing in 3d for
a long time, so I will watch your progress extra!
You have a great way of drawing characters, even alien ones!
Would be delicious to see the scene later on!
Good luck, my friend!

Hello, Fernando!!

That's a very cool idea! :) One could say it's a swinging idea :) Love the drummers, especialy the right one looks great.

Keep it up! I would love to see how you develop it further.

Cheers, mate!:beer:

hey fernando! im a musician and seeing your concept on the rock guitar, the one on the far right seems more natural than the others poses (and cooler) to me, but its all looking preety good :thumbsup: btw im also from mexico, if you don't mind me asking, what state are you from?

Hi Fer ! sorry my friend that I haven't replay that much! Its been a bit busy at work!

Back to your Alien's Rock Band!!:buttrock:

I like it! Lots of things to do! for the poses for your main guy! I will say do something that tells more than what a normal human rock star will do! Since it could be in a free gravitation stage? So he can perform as he will be on water or something like that! As for the drum guy I will say add more arms! Or fingers? I dont know something amazing I guess? hahaha fav quote for sure! It's looking all the idea and sketches fantastically fun!:thumbsup:

I mas vale que le bajes a la chelaaa ! jajaja puro tequila ahora! jaja! y lsd como buen rock star pa que te pongas a tono!:bounce:

Nice studies there's a lot of dynamics going there.
The band should look pretty cool in the end.

Should be a fun entry :buttrock:

jeromoo
04-22-2008, 09:31 AM
Hi Fernando, how about having more varieties in the body shapes for the aliens? Some could be almost insect-like, with multiple arms playing the specially made guitar and the like. The drummer can be an alien with a pair of heavyset arms, which is perfect for pounding a drum.

Also try to go for unconventional musical instruments that doesn't seem too human. It makes sense to have this for an intergalactical rock band.

Keep it up! Cheers!

Ferx

Lisa - thanks for your kind words! I really appreciate it :)

Mathias - Really glad for your words my friend!! Your encouragement is extra motivation to finish this work! Thanks! Cheers my friend!! :beer:

Eric - I promise that the next update will have the composition for the concept :D

Dimitrij - Thanks buddy I really glad that you liked the concept! Thanks! Cheers mate ! :beer:

Sergio - Thanks for your kind words mate! You are a musician and a 3D artist , that is really cool ! Glad that you liked the guitar poses. I dont know if cant use that poses because i dont have right know my final idea on the composition, but are useful to inmerse on the concept that i want ( acerca de donde soy, soy chilango :D, de que parte de Mxico eres tu Sergio? Es bueno encontrarse con mexicanos por estos lares )

Peter - Thanks for your words mate! I think the band gonna play an alien varition of Van Halen's "Jump" Theme :D

Mark - Thanks my friend. I hope some day, if the image convinces me, maybe make a small video clip animated on 2D with this band. Thanks again my friend !! Cheers!! :beer:

Axel - Im really glad that you have a lot of work my friend hahahahaha :D and glad that you liked the concept. You are right about of the many possibilites for the band's performance and taking note on your nice suggestions! Thanks for the support and encouragement my friend ( Si, haber que me fumo pa ponerme bien a tono con el concepto....... y que viiiiiivaaaaaa el rock'n roooooll y que viva el tri de Mxico..... hahahahahahaha)

Spin - Thanks mate for your encouragement!! I really appreciate it. Cheers !!:D

Jerome - Thanks for your great support and suggestions my friend. Im trying for now to download from my brain ( hahahahaah too many beers hahahahaah) a composition that works well with the concept. But for sure I try to explore different forms and instruments to the characters and hard try to match your superb entry :) Again really thanks for your support! Cheers!

dedicate this day to work on the composition for the concept. I found one that I like and do some pretty variations on it. Only 20 days, I hope that some of these works:)

This is the first. I focus mainly on the composition, working with human type characters, without pause now in the final design of the characters:)

This is the B variation, more open stage, more members of the band, and crowd hands :)

The final variation, composition C. Change to a vertical canvas. The stage is more closed and retains the hands of the crowd. I like the most this composition :)

Votes and comments are really welcome :D

SteevieWoo
04-23-2008, 06:44 AM
Now we're talking, that's a really interesting shoot! I'll vote for C since it fits better the perspective and gives you a closer view of the characters, I really enjoy the way you twist your concepts time after time until you hit the spot! now we can only wait for the color to start to flow and this image to start to rock hard!


Very good indeed!!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Hi Fernando, good idea with the alien rock band, theres alot of ways you could work the aliens into the insturments. I'm going to vote B, I like those little critters on the sides in B, I don't see those in any other comp. I think c looks like a band poster which could also be a good idea to go with. Get going!!

-love

Russell-Nash
04-23-2008, 11:20 AM
Hi Fernado,
my vote goes to Concept B. I think it has a more human/alien touch although it means more work for you. :D

Go go go. Time is running. :wip:

04-23-2008, 12:40 PM
Wohoo man! I would go with B or C. Keep going!

My favorite is B, with C coming a close second. I like those hands in the foreground. Will there be alien hands/tentacles in there?

varma
04-23-2008, 02:57 PM
Cool composition Fernando!
My vote also goes (went) to B, although you already have chosen your favorite one!
Lots of vibes in those drawings! I can almost hear the crowd cheering!
More posts!

LORDvesalius
04-23-2008, 03:00 PM
Hi Fernando!
thanks for your post!
I like your idea a lot, and i vote for B. The perspective is a lot more dramatic, and there's also more alien-human interaction as well.
I think also that hte composition fits better, and inmersive.
It brings a clearer feeling of very wide-angle shot, taken live at the performance...
the other concepts are good, but i think that "B" shows the idea better.
keep going!

Personal I like B better, it tells more of a story.. Great idea, nice to see something different!

I also vote for... B! :) Of course, looks better i have to agree with everyone else here :)

Gabriel, Ryan, Torsten, Jassar, Mark, Mathias, Pablo, Brian, Dimitrij, Raul, Sergio, Atte, Eric, Gerardo, Axel - Really thanks guys for the comments and votes. The B variation is the winner :D. I think I have a really little time to end this concept, and this is the strategy that I will use :D : I start the work on a canvas like B option, but working first in the elements on the C composition, if I have time, I extend the image, If not, I cut to the C composition :D. Hope have time to finish totally on B composition. Again really thanks for the support mates!! And cold beeer for all !! Cheers :beer: + :beer: + :beer:

my favorites:

the bassplayer girl
ps: a topless girl on the bass is an attractive option (kidding ^^)
the drummer is cool either ... the strong hands are totally appropriate for his role =)

good work my friend =)

Hola Fernando,
U worked very good the poses. Also the composition. aI really like the Keyborads alien.http://forums.cgsociety.org/images/icons/icon13.gif The hat and the cigar gives him personality. Maybe u should put some other things to the other characters.
Dale caa que queda poco.

04-26-2008, 01:16 AM
Brilliant! I can't decide which one I love the most - keyboard dude, or mantis man on the lead guitar. The drummer looks awesome and I wonder if anyone would be brave enough to tell him if he was keeping the beat or speeding up. This band is looking excellent buddy. They are really good character designs

AxelAlonso
04-26-2008, 04:18 AM
Love them all! Mostly the Keyboards I mean he does have this musician personality and body language type! All look great as a group though, as for the lady singer being the human type that's good! Its difficult to mess around with human beauty! And sometimes overdone, so I like that call in her for representing us! Just a suggestion her outfit looks a bit to normal for a rock star so maybe add her a crazy hair do, or some wacko accessories, other than that its great I like the 80s rock band tattoo on her eye!:buttrock:

jeromoo
04-26-2008, 04:38 AM
I really like B version, the composition and postures are very dynamic. I'm glad to see you doing the musical player concepts. The variety you have there is very nice! Perhaps you like to add tattoos to some of the alien musical players? Hurry up and starting painting. The deadline is near!

Spin99
04-26-2008, 06:55 AM
Hey there.

I like B or C but if you go for C I hope you don't leave out the cool aliens.
I mean the aliens far right and far left on B you could put them into C/
But preety cool work overall.

Nice studies I hope the singer is wearing something really skimpy :D

Hey Fer ! I have to say you got a good plan there for the canvas thing, That's for the best, with the deadline so thigh. You can always gamble on a time extension, mmmmm lets keep that idea from our heads just now, but is good to have a plan B :D

Wow! your keyboard guy Is hot these days! I hope popularity doesn't get to his head so soon or he could split for a solo career an ruin everything! By the way I think someone in the band could use a big bad handlebar moustache. y'know, a Lemmy von Motrhead sort of thing, maybe the drummer... I don't know.....

C'mon Fer give the pansy teen alien popstars something to fear!! Yeah:buttrock::buttrock::buttrock:



Wow, nobody's really doing a teen alien popstar for the Uplift right? I better shut up...

the compotition looks great fer, i just wanna ask if any of the characters you have floating is playing a base or a guitar? remember bases have longer necks and most only 4 strings :D right now both look the same :wip: but your instruments are very fururistic so the might not even have strings :argh: waiting for next update :)

*** i just noticed the female is further away than the alien :D so i guess she has the base***

Hi Fernando,
I like your concept about music, music is universal. Your design of alien is great too. One suggestion, all your alien have five fingers (the Singers), why not create different fingers maybe like tentacle, 3 or 4 fingers? Just for variation:). Overall your design, the composition, color and character is great and cool, love it.

Good luck with the challenge and looking forward to see more of your uplift universe challenge progress:beer:

First pass in color.
Putting colors and focus basically on forms, volume and basic light . The next step will be to create textures for aliens and work on the background and stage. I Will work in a separate layer the color for light and shadows generated by the concert lights and reflectors :D

AxelAlonso
05-02-2008, 08:17 AM
Hey Fer!:)

That looks fun I like the color choices! They all seem to have a good complementary tone besides them so nobody will hide once all the reflections from the show are on! I like also the hands pointing in negative value to the main guys! since you have those 2 main light above , I guess the blue tones in her and the drums guy might loose a bit their potential so maybe add a really good plastic texture that will compensate that!:lightbulb



Other than that so far I love the whole mood very energetic as a concert of this size could be expected! Have fun with the BG!:arteest:

Hey fernando :)


Looking good.

a few comments:

your characters are getting a little lost contrast wise. Try making the hands in the foreground very dark, and make the rest of your characters darker as well, then maybe try to lighten the background towards the top where the lights are.

Heres a tip that I have always found helpful:

When you squint your eyes and look at your painting the characters should still pop out. If not then there isn't enough contrast.

Hope that helps :)

Hola Fernando!
You are moving way fast for me to keep up! That's the spirit!
I like the way you have chosen the vanishing point right on top, giving a pyramidical
composition to the whole! But again there are two lights on each side of the van. point
kind of ruining for the basic comp; I could be wrong on this, but have you considered
other kind of lighting too, which can support your main composition?
Looking forward to see the colors streaming in!
Keep painting, Amigo!

Heya Fernando, you are definitely heading in the right direction! Keep going! You have so much to add in the background as well, but try to keep it in the shadows so the characters will pop out more! Oh, do you think the lead singer's microphone is a bit too small to fit in his hand?

How about adding some strong spotlights beaming on them from behind? Some small rays of lights waving around from the stage behind of the wild audience might also contribute to the rock star effect.

All the best with your completion! :D

I wouldn't worry on the background myself (some smoke and loose lights will do), and on the colours I'll avoid those used in the bacground just to crop the characters a bit more (tint them in a hue that might come from a light right below the characters-that will crop the hands row too); keep an eye on the overall balance of warm hues as they seem at the moment to drag the attention to the right.
Other than that, it's coming along very nicely!

It's looking really good. Perhaps the bits on the music balls could glow a bit more where the musician's fingers are touching their surfaces - that would help emphasise what's going on there. But that's only a very minor comment (which you are of course free to ignore). You are making really cool progress. Good luck buddy

Me again... nice to see you since a really long while... sorry.

Well I think you really know where are you going now. IT LOOKS GREAT WITH THE BIG DUDES IN THE BACK!! the middle guy's glowing eyes top the triangle composition just right.
Everything from the big sphere with glowing eyes to the green guy's neat shoes is showing great improvement now. If Any I will say that the drummer's lower arm looks a bit bended like rubber, the elbow doesn't show much, but that is fine depending of what kind of alien he is, I guess. Just a comment.

the back lighthing is gonna be your best weapon here, as in the girl's leg and white boot, that area looks great, round and soft ans standing up so well, love it.

This is the banda "Underground Uplift," a band of rock that has launched a hard concept against genetically marketing, against the enslavement of beings that have evolved through genetic engineering, but they must pay with 10,000 years of servility toward their evolutionary "benefactors" .
The idea began with a fortuitous discovery of an old relic of bygone days, a copy (copying 900 billion to be exact) album by a group unknown to them, some types called "Pink Floyd". The name of the album, "The Wall", not suggesting anything, but were shocked when hear it. They were identified with the kind of concept that used Mr. Floyd.
"Underground Uplift" took 4 years of work on record its new album, "Compressed Evolution" and now the group is at number one "top ten" ... In the "top ten" of most wanted by patron alien races (genetic engineering "semi gods") and some, rather said, several humans.

Hey again Fernando!
I think I finally figured out the patent behind the jellyfish_rubber player! It's a wild guess,
but I think I'm on to him more or less!
You see, he's got some pretty coarse skin on his palms, probably because he works in a
Tiberium mine in the daytime, and when he rubs those sandpaper_like palms on the back
of those delicate and thin jellyfishes, he makes them scream, very loud, out of pain!
Those screams are then channeled through a few phase_shifters and filters, evolving to
more pleasant, rythmic screams, which adds a lot to the dundring noise of the band!
Man, how I wish I could hear those screams unfiltered!
:argh:
see you around, buddy!

Hi buddy, I`m sorry that I missed all the fun, I was just busy trying to make money ;) Congrats on your final man, I love this image, another one of your crazy art work! You never fail to find interesting subjects for your illustration, and one can tell from the lighting that this is one of yours.. I love the whole mood, this is a festival of colors amigo, I`ll make sure that I won`t miss the next chance to paint with you guys! I hope your animation project is still going smooth. Keep rocking man, portfolios are getting fatter..
