Fast sketch of the idea...

A huge young girl in a monster costume runs trough a city full of monsters and they run away and scream because they are afraid!

We are still working on the story and characters. More infos coming soon...

Sounds great! A horror film from the monster's perspective should give you tons of interesting ideas to work with.

We started with some monster concepts. This is only one of the monsters - we are working on many more.

We still haven't decided the final style, but we would like to get some feedback...

Great character design - the palette and lighting already gives it a really B-Movie feel. Hope you can translate it into animation - it'll look really sweet.

Good luck

Thanks, we love designing new characters ;)

Translating all our concepts into animation is our main goal... it's going to be hard - mainly because this is our first time in a Contest - but we will do our best.

its a very nice idea but i think u must use a very normal little girl or normal giant girl not in a costume:shrug:

yes, that's a thing we aren't so sure about right now - but we thought it would be cuter having the little girl a costume. ;)

Very nice concepts, this is a really fun idea. I think the costume thing could work, say at first the face is hidden and all the monsters are nonchalant about this 50ft monster strolling in the background and only react when the baby grow slips a bit to reveal the human face, looking forward to seeing how this comes along.

that was our idea :applause:
the girl is "undercover" walking around and panic only breaks out when the girl shows herself.

We haven't wrote much about the story yet, but we are working on that!

Keep it up man and good luck!

Looks great! You put lot of work on these concept arts but what about modeling, texturing, rigging and all the rest? Did you guys started working on those? Time is running out quickly I would love to see your project finished on time!

rolandinho
02-17-2010, 03:20 PM
we know time is short, but it is important to us not only to have a good animation, but also a good concept.

we don't want to model "polygons" and animate them. We want to make characters that have a story and are alive even before we animate them :)
