Wow new contest! Wha-hoo.

Not entirely decided yet but I am pretty sure I am going to do something related to Avatar. I am just so blown away by that movie I can't think of anything else. It is just so amazing! But since the contest is a B-movie theme think baddies vs Na'vis.

Buckle up kids, the Soapster is goin' back to his roots and this one could get ugly.

Mr Hard and Aquaman painting their mascot troll as Na'vi. Along with the rest of their friends they totally got into Avatar, the greatest movie ever!

A little recycling going on for the pre-vis along with some brand new models. You guys know how I roll.

Thanks guys, it is great to be back up here joining into a contest. This should be a fun one for sure.

I cheat, that makes it go faster... seriously though I am using some old models and sometimes rebuilding the texture maps.Thank god for the rule change allowing us to use whatever assets we want. Reinventing the wheel every single contest was getting tiresome. Plus it did not suit the narrative style of storytelling I do. But I am also building a lot of new models. New models in this last image are the paint cans and brush. There will be a few new characters and a very complex stage set built for this contest. As for characters even I don't know yet who will stay and who will go.

Hey Soapy,

Cool Frankestein for a B-Movie. And great humor touch on it. ;D

You can try a "Franky" like a B-Movie star, seating on a director chair, smoking his cigar and served by beautiful vampirelas. I dont know, that picture come to my mind when I look your image. :D Only a comment.

Cool work !! Cheers!! :beer:

Good idea Ferx, I like it. At the moment I have no idea yet what the final image will be. There are a bunch of ideas for little scenes and passion plays as progress on the modeling moves along.

For this image I was thinking of this painting: Beckman self portrait (http://www2.facinghistory.org/campus/weimar.nsf/ID/BA24086A192B037D85256CA3006B9DBD?OpenDocument)

One of my all time favourite painters. Although I guess I changed the hand position a lot. I didn't actually go look at the Beckman beforehand.

That's a wonderful Frankenstein image and the text you put with it is perfect. This is on its way to becoming a classic soapy thread

Thanks Makaron. Please don't think twice about using Frankenstein in your image, it is open season on poor old Frank. There is already lots of duplication going on in this contest so no big deal. Besides you know me, this Frank image was just a teaser along the way. He is just part of a crew of baddies coming down the pipe. I am still doing an Avatar tribute after all. So just go ahead and use your Frank idea. Great minds do think alike.

Thanks Mark and Gunilla. More crazy coming soon.

Soapy,

:applause:

I do believe the notion of Frankstein starring in or even just reciting The Raven or The Talltale Heart is among the most inspired concepts ever.

Perhaps he should also do a remake of avatar. All the aliens are just blue frankesteins. Even the women. Go forth, great one. Make it happen. :beer:

Awesome energy and attitude. Reincarnate some Ed Wood. :applause:

A zombie test model render. I might go in a different direction and do a herd of zombies. Here is the first little test. Made with Zbrush and cinema. I want to spend this contest getting better with zbrush.

Great start on the Zombie Soaps, i saw Colin the other day, one of the best Zombie films i've seen, made with a budget the size of a peanut. Zombies rule.

Hey Soapy,

Nice update. Like a lot your zombie design and great flesh texture. The pants texture is a totally psychedelic B-Movie touch, cool!! :D

Waiting for the herd of zombies :D Cheers!! :beer:

Great looking zombie - as Ferx I'm especially fond of the pants, gives the whole tropical feel to him.
Cool to see you're getting into Zbrush, really looking forward to see what you're going to do with it.
