1. The first idea I had - A geek build a kind of teleporter and ported himself to venus where a giant robot army was about to attack the venus' amazons. So he found himself right in the middle of this war not sure what side to choose - the robots cause he's a geek or the amazons to finally get laid once in his life.

2. Then the idea turned into one simple 'Night of the living Geek' theme.
Very simple plot, and easy to convey into an image. So I'll stick to that.
Also made a quick and dirty colorthumb for the rough diection where to go. Looks like a lavalamp parade, but it works for me. :D
For the image itself I had in mind to have a gradial transformation of the geek. In the back the silhouette seem to represent real zombies or something dangerous but as it goes to the foreground the actual geeks get recognizable. Try to get in some funny ideas like typical computerstuff as weapons for example. Need to gather some more ideas for that.

Wow ! <Nice sketches !
I am a bit jealous ! you seem to have drawing habilities more than I !

Hi Jakob!
the sketches are looking sweet, I feel like the 1st concept is a bit more B-movie than the 2nd, but the 2nd is much more original, so good luck with it! :scream:

artvandeley
01-27-2010, 10:23 AM
Hey Jakob, the colorthumb is just beautiful, very promising. I wouldnīt worry about the idea being simple, having a simple idea and wrap a movie around that is a main part what a B-Movie is made of, isnīt it? Cool characters too :cool:

Ok - here is the first step in my progress.
Left- an unfinished sketch. the backgroundcharacters are all just placeholder. only the guy in the focus is nearly done.

Right- a rough tonal sketch to see how the sketch works . I'm aware of the crappy composition. :)

A good base to start off!

yakonusuke
02-01-2010, 12:08 PM
gpepper: Hehe, nah they aren't that good, but thanks!

elmasfeo: hey Fernando, thanks man! Yeah I stick to that concept. I'm really looking forward to do a lot of characters after the work I'm doing at the company.

art: Yeah thanks, Torsten! No I don't worry about the simplicity of the idea- rather was one reason to go for that idea! but I'm still not in the groove... hmmm

Thanks chaps.
C & C always welcome!

Hey there! LOLOLOL!!

great stuff you got there! really comic idea, and very well put into an illustration.

It reminds a bit of Kevin from sincity played by Elijah Wood. You could have them hold some usb pen's and why not make the leader bill gates? ;)

JayMackay

Awesome, I like the theme...I like what you've done with the character on the left so far. Will be fun seeing how this unfolds. Keep it up!

Some more characters, and some minor changes on the center one.

Will improve the overlapping of the guys later. At this point I just develop the content.

JayMackay, Pegahoul, SaphireS, Jakyll, RaVirr, PELENG : Thanks guys! :)

Madail: Cheers! bill Gates would fit into that bunch , yes :D ... but it's not intended to depict specific persons, but a whole lifestyle.

PixelAce: Thanks man, I'll try to keep it simple! I already got rid of some too complicated ideas.

grumposaur: yeah you were right and I pulled the pants a bit up in this update. Thank you!

The only thing is, how did you get the picture of my high school chess club, to derive your characters from? LOL (kidding)

Good luck!

Well here we go with some thoughts on the title placement.
I like no.1 for it's &quot;in-the-face-ness&quot; but has to get the value right , so it doesn't distract the illustration part. But this one probably conveys best the spirit of the topic.
I like No.2 as well... but maybe too simple.
No. 3 is way too simple and standard, imho.

But let me know your thoughts on this.

yakonusuke

And the drawing, which is quite final, as I'm pretty satisfied with it.
There is only some stuff missing in the back ( like few more zombieheads) , and on the ground(maybe some stuff the victims dropped), which I will do on the fly while I render the whole piece.

AJ
02-10-2010, 12:11 PM
But let me know your thoughts on this.I really prefer the first treatment. Even though the title is huge, it doesn't detract from the artwork IMO.

Bran
02-10-2010, 12:47 PM
will there be a monochrome version on vhs, too? :D

this is evolving great! :beer:

elmasfeo
02-10-2010, 05:27 PM
haha, this is looking great, I love the expression of the guy on the floor... the only thing I could crit is that the face of the fat guy with the portable tv looks a bit strange for me, but I can't tell exactly why... or it might be my personal taste, maybe he's too ugly for me, heheh...
about the layouts, I think I prefer the 1st one too... or the 2nd
keep up the good work!! :bounce:

ocin-r
02-13-2010, 03:11 PM
Overall it is looking really good, but I have two really small things to crit.
First, the right hand of the kneeing character between the legs of the main character looks a little bit misplaced. In my opinion the hand should be somewhere behind the left leg of the main character.
Second, I would equalise the zone where the right foot of the main charcter hits the hand of the lying character and the other foot.
But this is just nitpicking :D

yakonusuke
02-15-2010, 11:52 AM
AJ: Even though I didn't go for it in the next update, It's still in the game... but I'm still not sure about that placement... thanks for your opinion!

Bran: thanks man :)

elmasfeo: Yeah, I feel the same about the tv guy . Will put some additional work in that guy . Thank you!

ocin-r: Thanks for the critics! I will peek into this as I progress!

Man, that is so cool, really love the geeks have this Zombie like postures, works soooo well lol, what a great idea. :drool:

serio
02-15-2010, 12:17 PM
super cool. You can work out some of the details now... like star wars t-shirts also I think one of the geek could be a little bit fatter. Just a stereotype but could add variety to the image. But overall I love it.

Beelzebutz
02-15-2010, 01:58 PM
Just had to say , i love this one.

my 2 cents about the tile, might be stupid, but feel free to ignore them.

- pixelated blood dripping from the title.
- some sort of pacmen with teeth replacing the "e" in geek.

Again , awesome entry. Feel free to ignore my input.

Nice concept and execution so far, Jakob. I love the color palette. Is the space below the logo going to be for cast names and credits? Just one suggestion: Given the font you're using for the tagline at the top, what about a DOS-like command prompt in front of it? :D
Good luck with the rest!

02-17-2010, 05:48 PM
Now I got some spare time to write.
Nickillus , Andrei-tR, PELENG, lauranonce, walrus, najjaci , Beelzebutz, serio, Paperboy: First of all, thank you guys for c&c! very appreciated!

serio: Thank you man, In fact there is a fatter guy and he's waering a star wars tshirt :D . but that's barely readable in the drawing. Anyways will try to point that out later on.

Beelzebutz: Also thanks to you, Beelzebutz! The ideas aren't stupid at all. Actually I was thinking about pixelblood dripping from the title as well :D I'll keep that in mind , when I get to the title part . But I want to finish the illustration first and put the title with all it's fancy details after that.

walrus: Thanks for the suggestions , Walrus! Yeah the DOS command is a good idea, will see how this looks, but as the whole title work in the end. Actually the title isn't final in that step. Just wanted to put it in to show the color pallette. But as mentioned will try some different places in the end. And will also put some names and credits under it all, yes. but haven't thought about that yet.


Cheers Guys

Not much new to see, just some more definition and renderwork.

Man I love all the color pallet for this.:arteest:

My only suggestion is that one of the geeks could have an inhalar. The guy on the fare right has his fingers position perfectly :)

artvandeley
02-28-2010, 12:32 PM
Wow, this is getting better and better. Those expressions are priceless :cool:

I know itīs tempting , but donīt loose your emphasis on the main character by adding too much equally important details to the other. I guess it would help to render the other geeks more shapelike with a rimlight from the back, maybe even with volumetric lighteffects.
I know thatīs shallow , but itīs supposed to be a B-movie, isnīt it?

Oh, and the screaming guy on the left, laying on the ground is already too detailed and therefore kind of distracting imO.

Almost done I think. Just need to fool around with some fonts and maybe more text like credits or so. Will see tommorrow.
But I guess it's enough for the illustrationpart, isn't it?

yakonusuke

iatriki: Thanks! I hope doing what I do is enough!

HeadSmell: ... hmm weird nickname.. anyways thank you for the great suggestion! I stuck one to the belt of the maingeek. :D

artvandeley: Thank you Torsten! Yeah you're definitely right... that's what Steven told me as well. So I faced this problem in this update. I think it's way better now, but maybe still not the best solution.
I also went for the volumetric light and drew the whole bunch back. Thank you for the great advice!

webhead: Thanks man! :)


btw. I will shoot a sharper photo of the scratchy paper texture tommorrow.

Great illustration! I love it :) I was thinking that you could maybe take a few "pixels" out from the illustration itself to show that the formating process has already begun... I hope that you know what I mean :) You could do the same thing with the title just to integrate it a bit more with the illustration.
Just a little idea for you to consider :)

Great job!

Here we go with the title and other texts part.
I think I need a bit help by english native speakers ( or better speakers than I am )... 'bad posture' sounds kinda stiff to me in that row, any suggestions what could sound better? Or is it just me who isn't used to this term? I don't know.
And some additional words to fill the spaces would be nice I guess. Feel free to throw some in! I'd be grateful!

Thanks chaps!

First off, amazin piece man! Been keeping an eye on this since the beggining. I love how you have translated the concept. The reason I'm posting is because of the spelling of leathal (I think it would be more correct, "lethal"). Even so, I'm not sure about that term in this context; it doesn't do anything for me. "Bad posture" is totally correct, and IMO, totally aplicable to the piece.

You could try other (cool sounding) geek related terms like:

- asmathic
- hypermetropic
- lactose intolerant

Just some ideas to throw around, but the important part, is already achieved. Awesome work!

Paperboy

Lactose intolerant... hilarious for itself... :D

Well I think that's it. If there are no further great suggestions I'd say it's finished.
As mentioned I can't touch it the next few days, So I will review this before deadline and decide if I do some final touches or corrections.

hey i love this. very nice. haven't read all the posts so it might have been mentioned, but, i think the title should be geeks. more scary to think there might be like an army of them out there!
and you have more than one geek in the image.
my 1 crit but i hate to crit such good work. absolutely spot on.

Really lovely work, Jakob. Just a terrific job setting up a creepy atmosphere. The mist, the lighting, the cool colors all work together really well! I have no problem with the title, but think that a bit of a drop shadow on the bottom text ("C: They came to format all") like what you have on the main title (only smaller) would really help that to pop a little instead of blending in with the background. But artwise: just perfect! :thumbsup:

All done, excellent! Love those characters and the overall wet, misty look tends to emphasise their geekishness. The guy on the right reminds me of a character you probably won't have heard of - Les from Vic Reeves' Big Night out, many years ago, used to crack me up.
