Hi everyone

Thought I'd share my fist character concept for the new challenge. Its very rough, just basically blocking out shapes at this point, and yeah I already saw the eye thing ;)

Hey guys, just a quick update, bin experimenting with different BG, probably wont use this one as I'm think of a more helicopter crash setting. Well will continue working on it whenever I get some free time.

Cheers

Not very secret but very well done! :applause: this guy looks coming out from an action movie! cool work.

snake08
06-16-2009, 03:25 PM
Thanks OZ. Haven't figured out his design yet, might leave that for last until I'm comfortable with a suitable BG, but yeah right now he's more of a Rambo type guns blazing character :)

Cheers mate

To me looks like a agent who take the mission in his own hands. Cool concept man!

snake08
06-16-2009, 05:32 PM
Thanks Luciano, there might be another agent joining him as well:)

06-16-2009, 05:41 PM
Looking cool, wondering what kind of location is it? Seems middle eastern from the buildings in the distance, is there a back story to the image or did i just miss it? lol

keep it up.

snake08
06-16-2009, 05:55 PM
Hey Cheung, yes its definitely in the middle east. There is also a back story as well, but I'm holding off a bit until I've nailed certain key points in the composition:D. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks mate

Much appreciated ShogunWarrior:)

Hamlet-ID
06-16-2009, 06:18 PM
Is a good idea, bring more action with another agent, if you can show them working together in the scene it will be very interesting. keep it up!

snake08
06-16-2009, 06:30 PM
My thoughts exactly ;)

SpeedSnake
06-16-2009, 06:49 PM
not bad, but he looks more like an assault soldier then like secret agent...

snake08
06-16-2009, 06:59 PM
yeah you're right. I assure you his final render will look nothing like this though, just a place holder for now.

Hamlet-ID
06-16-2009, 07:42 PM
But wait, secret agent doesn't means he have to wear suit, thanks to James Bond everybody thinks that. Agents must be prepared for everything. With some elements which say "secret" (like thermal goggles, I dont know, but if you think in Splinter Cell you get some ideas :P), I thing the concept works very well.

SpeedSnake
06-16-2009, 07:53 PM
a secret agent must not get "busted" by any means..that why he is secret...well anyway, we'll see how it will work out.... :shrug:

snake08
06-16-2009, 08:01 PM
Hey Luciano, I totally agree with you. Yeah some people would think James Bond/tuxido upon hearing that word, thats why I decided to go with something totally different. Characters like Sam (splinter cell) and Snake (MGS) are good examples of secret agents who you wouldn't think falls under that category at first sight because of the way they are decked out in military type clothing/gadgets (hella KOOL:cool:)

snake08
06-16-2009, 08:06 PM
So right u r

LOL SpeedSnake your display pic is my idol, and I dont think there's anyone more badass:cool:. But even Snake get caught, but never fails his mission. There are times he has to go GUNZ BLAZING ;)

SpeedSnake
06-16-2009, 08:26 PM
he's my idol too you know.........a secret agent always haves something special in him..

-- Jason Bourne --

.. is my hero.! i love this one the most so far because it reminds me of jason bourne. Undercover but things have to get done and he goes all out cause hes got nothing to lose!
Now if you could like merge Agent 47 and Bourne... oh man, i dont think this forum could HANDLE it but if you would do it..... you would win the contest hands down in my world ;)

keep it up i like it so far =) .


things it would be cool to see in the picture

- some espionage

Nice work, keep it coming

snake08
06-17-2009, 05:01 AM
utchamp: haha I can see the obsession you have with Bourne in your words man (awesome character), yeah that guy is unstoppable when he gets crazy (gunz blazing)

mark-jenkins: I know the feeling, it just takes practice, there's no short cut to gaining speed and getting better.. practice practice practice :) it''ll come

Hi everyone, thought I'd share another update with you guys. Here I'm trying to get that "heli crash" scene laid out. Will populate the rest of the scene with middle eastern buildings as well, yeah I know it doesn't look like much now but in time it will :)Figured I'd save the character(s) for last on this project, still not sure about his/her,their design(s) as yet.

Cheers

Ur stuff looks better and better...!!:bowdown:

snake08
06-19-2009, 02:49 PM
lol well its a crammed down image now so it creates that illusion. The challenge is to make it as good when viewed large. Thanks OZ :)

CircusRobot
06-19-2009, 03:45 PM
Yeah, there's nothing like seeing your image at 15% to make you feel almost done...then you zoom in and spend another week on stuff.:scream: I'm not familiar with your work and when I first saw the downed chopper I thouht it was pasted in! The lighting is fantastic!

snake08
06-19-2009, 04:03 PM
Thanks CircusRobot. Every thing you see here is all painted from scratch ( no paint over or cut out/past in images). However compared to the reference image of the chopper, my version is about 10% completed ( lots more work to do).

obux
06-19-2009, 05:24 PM
damn - that chopper is just so aahhhhh - ok I quit - on the other hand it shows what can be done! Hope I will someday get to that! Can't wait to see more!

Best oBux

Hey Ryan:)
Iīm enjoying so much your visual concept for this...looks amazing, very atmospheric and the agent looks badass!:buttrock:
Looking foward:beer:

MartinNielsen
06-19-2009, 06:09 PM
Ah! I see you have a thing for helicopters as well :) Though yours seems to be out of order at the moment... :rolleyes:

Hamlet-ID
06-19-2009, 09:50 PM
The crashed helicopter adds to much drama, it is a great idea. Now I want to see the agent working :D

The perspective with the wall doesn’t convince me.

snake08
06-19-2009, 11:57 PM
obox: dont give up now mate... YOU CAN DO IT!!:D

digitalinkmind: HELLZ YEAH:buttrock: thanks mate

MartinNielsen: lol yeah, got owned by a RPG perhaps

Hey guys, recently started working on a middle eastern female spy/agent for my scene. Had to do this in a separate file as my BG file is getting a bit large in file size ( my compute is pretty much on its knees at this point). Doesn't look like much now but hopefully I'll be able to make her really bad A!!!! :)

I really like your painting style, your latest secret agent has a lot character but the male secret agen looks really cool. i like him more

snake08
06-29-2009, 05:30 PM
Hey thanks miycko, well you'll probably like her more when she's fully rendered, then again the male character is no where near completion either. We'll see:beer:

Hi all, just an update on what I've bin painting. So I've scratched the first female agent idea, this one seems to be a better concept, still figuring out her clothing though. My apologies for not updating more often. Also thank you guys for all the positive feedback on my work thus far, greatly appreciated :)

Cool painting! Are you swapping the guy for the girl? Either way it's cool... though I feel her pose for some reason feels a little dance-like... no tension perhaps?

snake08
07-16-2009, 05:22 PM
Thanks guys.

ajitmenon: There will be 2 agents, gotta start rendering him out too, so little time remaining lol will look into that pose, wanted it to match her personality.

Hi all, its bin a while since I last post an update. Not much going on, just in the process of painting an enemy disintegration, will try to make it much kooler whenever I get some time. Man it seems as if it was yesterday the challenge was announced.. where did the time go? lol.

A top secret military group has been working on a dangerous and infectious disease for sometime without the knowledge of even its government. The virus causes severe dementia and rage in its host, but in 2012 while attempting to air transport the virus to an new facility, their military gun ship crash landed over a small town located in the middle east. It was then the government learned of the deadly threat.

Fearing the worst, the government turned to a group of secret agents trained to contain and eliminate viral threats. Vixen and Zero (both commander class agents) were the first to be deployed on this search and rescue mission, but upon arrival they quickly learned this new threat was nothing like they've ever dealt with before. A search and rescue was no longer in effect, their new objective was to seal the town's entrance (Vixen trigger explosion with detonater) and annihilate everyone within it's walls.
