Hey, This is the first challenge that I've entered. Hopefully I can find enough time between work to scratch something together. I'm planning to work with a friend and create our take on the legend of Robin Hood. We aim to get some imagery up here within the next few days. I wish everyone luck!

Just looking at colour and lighting for the landscape. This is the Robin Hood fable but taken into a new dimension.

This is just something I made to test a lighting style, I am not the concept guy! He will be along shortly with an early character concept. We will be throwing ideas around soon and will have some storyboards to share.

This is a rough character concept that is going to be subject to change over the next couple of days.Thought it be a good idea to whack something up to share with you guys...

Cheers mate! I reckon I'm going to have to re-upload them though(they are a little small)-trying to fit stuff to CGS's crazy 3 and half KB image requirment is insane and i was been a tad lazy,may have to split them up into a few more boards than the current 3! Your groups projects really starting to flesh itself out, keep up the good work!

Just a speedpaint of a proposed look in terms of colour/mood for this section of the film, using a storyboard panel thats been agreed on. Trying to make it look slightly dead & "wastelandy" but at the same time not boring and desaturated. Nixie is on blocktesting and rendering techniques so need to bust out a few of these for him sharpish...

Beautifull piece of landscape, Congrat! It's totally conform with your purpose! More!

Thanks, Chris Goff (goffy) is handling most of the 2d so I'm sure he will be along shortly with more!

We were hoping to put an animatic up, but I'm guessing that it isnt possible?

Chris.

Nothings gone up for a while we know, have been sorting out character/ costume and the general style of what we shall be aiming for!Its been a busy week for us, so here are the fruits...

This is the costume we've decided to go with. Its kind of classic, with a hard wearing edge to it. Also key to have it look and feel fairly light weight and free-as the character will be expected to do lots of running and jumping.

Style wise-this has been a tough one!Lots of going back and forth between cartoony and real, bla bla. I've drawn him a million times this week i swear! At the beginning we were thinking of going along a photoreal path but there are many pit falls with that route and then there's the time constraint. In the end we've decided to go with something in the middle,thats abit sylised but textured and detailed in a semi-real way. Nixie is beginning character modeling soon -so it will be then that we'll discover if we're on the right track! Comments ofcourse are welcome!

Cheers

That face is perfect! And so is the new castle. Suits your story and style.
Hoping to see character models soon :)

Wow! really nice design you have there. I love the pseudo-technical-medieval feel.

I'm interested in what you guys are going to do weapon wise....are you going to keep them medieval, or tech them up a little?

Looking forward to seeing more!
