Here's a pre-visualization image just to get me into the mood.

My submission "Attack of the Cereal Monster" will center around the breakfast table, (where a child or a couple of children will be given a surprise attack at the breakfast table), or in some other location, maybe outside!. I will reveal more soon.

Best of Luck to Everyone!!

This reminds me of the toys that all the manufacturer company put in your cereal. Trying you make buy it for your kids or you as a kid.

Yeah, I can remember the toy was the best part of the cereal when I was a kid. This cereal will have a surprise too, but it aint gonna be fun to play with. Muhaaaa Muhaaaa! :)

Awesome idea! This is what B-movies are all about crazy things attacking you. Anyone remember Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Is it gonna be the sticky octopus thing that you would through at a wall and then watch it crawl down?

A few monster concepts. I am leaning towards one of them but I'd like to know what other people think. Which one (if any) do you prefer?

Good start with the Cereal monster designs. My fav monster in your design is Pete...the 3 eyed monster.

BUZZFX
01-25-2010, 04:52 AM
Yeah, Pete's kinda looks like a deer caught in the headlights. Yongkiat, thanks for the input.

I prefer the Pete monster sketch as well. The whole idea sounds good too, good luck!

I like Pete and Marlin. Lovely designs. Marlin is probably a little more on the generic side where Pete has the most interesting design of the two :)
Stu looks more like a leech than anything else :s

Another vote for Pete - he looks terrified to even be alive!

Stu looks more like a leech than anything else :sThanks Lady Medusa, Marlin is sort of a brute. His bark is louder than his bite. Well maybe!

Another vote for Pete - he looks terrified to even be alive!Hey I never thought of that, but you're right he does look terrified. Maybe from all of the extra attention he's receiving. It makes him nervous and very unpredictable. :) Thanks Alex.

Did a rough sketch to get down some ideas for composition and lighting. The thought was to have another character in the foreground shooting a piece of cereal from a spoon at the monster.

I may end up moving the camera back to include more elements. That can be done later though after some of the modeling is done. What do you think of the idea of a girl shooting a piece of cereal? Maybe there's a better idea to be had? Suggestions welcome!

Hi Buzz

Hey BuzzFX, Cool and funny idea. So would the FBI consider this monster a "Cereal Killer" LOL

I think that the last one, even if its just a sketch, has that special lighting that makes it look completely like a B-movie poster...
@element5 - "cereal killer", yeah, LOL! :D

of the creatures i actually liked marlin, he looked to have something mischievous and cheeky about him, but i see pete actually translates very well...Have to admit that i thought when i saw your first concept for the cereal box, that it was actually going to be the box as the monster haha, but never the less, a fine concept sketch..

nothing comes to mind for suggestions, sorry :)

best of luck to you

MarleyThanks Marley. Initially, I was going to have the monster coming out of the cereal box, but compositionally it was not working. I may revisit the idea if I can get it to look right. :)

Here's another idea where the Cereal box is the monster Ha Ha Ha!:) Would love to hear which idea you feel is the stronger of the two? This one or the one above. I will change the angle of the Box Monster to be more menacing like the image above if I use this idea. HMMM. I have more ideas as to what other elements will be included in the scenes but I'd love to hear your suggestions if you have any! Thanks.

Nice sketches!
I think you could join your ideas in one. For example several box-monsters are hunting the humans and throw them into itself, and on the background there is a huge monster from a previous concept sketch that takes one box-monster and start eating humans from it.
How about it?

Cool idea! I actually like the box being the "cereal killer" (he he)... maybe he could use little plastic toys to entice kids into his trap... we all know how cool they are... individually wrapped, little plastic thingymajigs made in Taiwan... gimme gimme gimme!

How about it?I like the idea of the monster throwing the humans into itself.:) I was going to add a bunch of monsters, but I think I want the focus to be on the main monster character with smaller characters all around.

I want the monster to look angry but sort of stupid too. Gosh what have I got myself into. :D

Excellent idea !
I like your sketches and designs !Thanks Gilles, I find sketching to be more enjoyable but modeling has it's own appeal too! :)

Some lights, shaders and a simple environment to get an idea of the mood for the monster. I am going to try a vertical format and try the blob monster too! Lots to do still.

Comments & Critiques welcome!

Modeling the box. Other elements (eye, arms, and scene) are in various stages of completion.
