hey

so here we go again. very cool subject this time round. :)

i have some ideas flowing around, but i definately want this to have some sort of stylised feel to it. very film noir, with some insipration from sin city, the spirit, comic book feel. dark shadows and flashes of colour.

gonna be putting together a team. :)

good luck to everyone :)

here is a little progress on the character. started modelling him not so long ago.

like i said in my last post, the story will have a 1940's - 50's style to it, with futurist elements.

we have not yet got the story down, althought we ahve ideas floating around.

il will put up some style sheets soon and some inspiration elements :).

stylised look to the character, sharp lines. teel us what you think :)

Hey man-i really dig the idea of a robotic arm. You should take a look at Ghost In The Shell's Batou for one of the most awesome robotic arms EVER. There was a model of him here in CGTalk somewhere...Ill take a look and see if I can find him. I think it was for one of the HCMC's...

very nice. I must say that what you came up with is very similar to what I am planning to do. Well... we will see how it goes.
Good luck

Pyke - hey dude, thanks for the link. instead of beaing a sort of cyborg intergrated robotic arm im thinking more just straight mechanical. but il look in to it.

here is as style test, for how we see the final look of the short animation. like i said, harsh shadows, destaurated colours.

done with a couple of passes.

tell us what you think.

I like the non-hyper-realistic character deign you've got there. Work well imo. Cheers.

cheers juhada

definately not going for realistic rendering. also it will hopefully have some nice use of DoF and motion blur to give the motion and camera work a nice realistic feel.

by for now

cheers

I love the vehicle idea. I'm doing something similar trying to keep the spirit of a vintage car in a completely different world / era.
