i think the idea of an galaxy battle is great but i think it would be more interesting to make a planet invasion like the battle of hoth in the good old star wars movies

I like the robots ideia and im happy tha this next challenge will be my first entry in a cg challenge ever, how long do we usually have to finish the job in these challenges? and how long are the short movies generally?

WHoa guys,
This is NOT the next challenge.
Queen of the Rocketmen will be the next challenge.

The Giant robot thing is an idea that still needs a look of cooking.

Yep....
And some of the mdels produced for that challenge will be used in the NEXT fxwars

We will do Queen of the Rocketmen Next...

And in the futue we might do the mecha one....

and if QOTRM is a success I might try the formula of that challenge
on a challenge based on superheroes...

Here are some examples of what I have in mind:


Superman World of Cardboard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cl_5UwS57X8)
The Flash - Speed Force (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53OyPYa7SEI&feature=related)
Captain Marvel vs. SUPERMAN (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0dFl1paxDA)- Ouch

good choices too, that superman and flash scene are my favorites scenes of any cartoon ever.

My concern is adding complicated characters to the mix. I want to improve my fx skills, not worry about character rigging/animation. Granted, you can always find a way around it, but then it frequently looks obvious that you left out the characters. Just something to please keep in mind.

I agree, let's keep the character rigging and animation to a minimum and focus on the FX

I agree. I haven't dropped by in ages and would love to participate again, but my views are we just need raw simple effects. I know that we get a few solo 'effects' (wave, tornado, fireworks) but i feel with the rate at witch people loose interest in projects simpler things would work better.

Bring on things like geysers, underwater explosions, acid spill ect.

I know its a really hard choice, and so many people tell you what they like, what they don't, and why. But its just my 2 cents thats all.

RobertoOrtiz
08-25-2009, 04:17 PM
I understand.

that is why i will do also some smaller challenges.

For example I have in mind some straightforward challenges.

among them:

Krakatoa

Nuke

Plane Crash...

and believe or not

Pool Table

Plane Crash would be Awesome!

Mech's
SuperHero's

I'm really excited about any of these potentially going through.

Meteor Strike
Magic spell
Attack on a submarine

Bridge getting destroid
Dogfight (plane fight)

i was watching steelers game yesterday and they kept cutting to molten steel being poured out of a big cauldron thing. Pretty sick, not very exciting but very fun to look at - particle fun is what it looked like.

I've been waiting for a nuke challenge for AGES. Those things are actually -very- hard to pin down in animations.

I second the Nuke idea.

I love the story based challenges, but focusing on one effect is good as well.

RobertoOrtiz
09-17-2009, 01:01 PM
we will do nuke, but first we will do Queen of the Rocketmen.

more soon.
