Here is the story:

Generic:

The Attack of The Flying Bugs


Bugs coming on the screen,one remins still and we present THE BUG PROBLEM

People,runing,scarry we present SCARRY PEOPLE

The big creature we present THE MONSTER BUG

And the surprise factor we present THE WEATHER



Introduction:

Small village,on the south of the country very peacefull and calm atmosphere,with ordinary people.One day the Flying bugs comes from nowhere in a large number,thousens of them and we see that on a TV screen on the news.For the people was no surprise,because also in other years small bugs comes in big numbers on they village.But this time the bugs are different,larger and strange behavior.The size of an Bug is proportional with the human hand.

Outside:
We see the village and people work around.Just an ordinary day from they life.

On the sky,we see wave of Flying bugs coming to the village.And those bugs goes to a small isolated house.The bugs clambing on the small house,covering almost 80% of the house surface.

They start to make a strange noise and from the tale of each other came a strange solid fluid,who start to cover the house and going down to the house ground.After that from the bottom of the house comes growing a big shape of mud and that strange green fluid ,who start to push the house up and the house goes crack in two pieces and still stay on the back of that giant thing.

The shape comes to look like a giant bug with the body of mud and green fluids.All the Flying bugs stays in the air close with that giant monster bug.

After his transformations the giant bug start moving to the other houses from the village.
People see that creature and get s panic.
They run away from the creature and the general atmosphere gets scarry.

The Factor:

The creature moves till get to a small river,who cross the village.And tried toget to the other side of the river where are the scary people and they houses.
But surprise! Can t get through because is made from mud and strange fluids.And when he touch the water with a small part of him, that part transforms into bugs and fly away.In the mean time a part of the creature split an the other side and start moving to the houses.

Raining day:

The clouds goes dark and gray,and the rain is coming.And all the water disolve the big creature in thosens of flying bugs who goes away to nowhere.
The people has finaly seatle down,and all the things goes to normal.

Is not the end:

Remember the small part of the monster who manage to get on the other side.Is still there:argh:
We see in the end the part who left from the monster hiding it in the back of one house.

END

Really nice color palette Adrian. Will you be making the colors more menacing when the bugs come to town. I think darker blues would look better then. :)

I like your models and the last atmosphere is nice. What is your render time for one render? Couse it looks very heavy.

I also have one shot, maybe couple of them with the grass, and its killin'my quad core. I used fur but still its taking too long.

I would really wanna know how to optimize it.

Tnx in advance.

Hi,and thanks for comment! About the render,I don t think is the fur who make your render slower.I also use fur for grass,cose I tried with paint fx from maya and take me about 12-13 minutes per frame,but with fur take me only 3 minutes maximum,at PAL TV resolution 720/576.And the scene have only 14 400 polygons.I have a dual core 3 G and 2 G of memory,so I must always optimize the scenes.

A few solution:
Check how much poly you have.
Try to use the scenes with grass,for a good ungle but without using camera movement(so you need to render just one frame of the grass and compose with other layers.)
And also the texture should not be to big,try to use compressed files like jpg or png for alpha.
What make the render take so long? First the textures,second the polys followed by the fur,fx and others.

Hope that helps!:thumbsup:

Looks nice man but it has that... in-game look, I think it's because of the lighting, it's flat and uniform. You should try to have some darker areas, soft shadows and some ambient occlusion. And if you can't afford GI (because of the render times) maybe you can spend some time making a better light rig for the environment so that it mimics the GI a little better.

Thanks Adrian! Yes you right,but I don t want a GI look,is a cartoon style,so I want to be more atmospheric look.But yes will be more shadows in the scenes,and a different contrast for a better look.
Best to you!

Maybe it's me, but I don't see a resemblance between style of environment and interior designs of yours. If you look at the houses, they are sort of huts from lord of the rings and radio, antena are something from 1940-50s. And characters remind me of a movie the Village. You might end up with a sortof Tween peaks salat :)
Hope that my perspective was of any help to your work.

To see it separate looks different,but in composition with all elements will be other thing.
THANKS for the advise! I will tried to integrate all elements,to look at the same story.

Well it looks great :)

Just synchronize it a little bit more. It looks a little bit like he is floating on the floor. Also I noticed a black silhouette, maybe you just need to set the alpha to be multiplied.

But if this is just a test then you dont have to bother.

The monster in the village look very cool. Congrats.

Good luck with the animation.

Hi, it looks good but I have to agree with flashgordy, something happened with the 3d version of the characters, they lost the charisma from the concept art or something is wrong, maybe you can work a little more at their faces because now are quite unappealing. I'm not sure what it is but I think that small tweaks around the nose/mouth could solve the problem. They are really close but the small difference that exists between the concept art and the 3d version gives the characters a bad look.I hope I didn't sound too harsh. Good luck!

although there are perhaps some various technical ways that this work can be improved, I must say that there is something kind of..."charming" about the style you have created for this. I can also see what you mean about how you are focusing on the "atmosphere" of the movie. even though some of the individual components could be polished more, the overall effect is somehow greater than the sum of its parts, which I think is the kind of approach one has to take when doing a project like this with tight deadlines and other limitations. so I think you have succeeded in keeping the "big picture" in mind while working through this enterprise. best of luck finishing on time!

Very refreshing to see something a bit different from you Adrian. The absence of 2D cartoon characters is nearly shocking here :) Keep up the passion for your work! Good entry, Good luck :thumbsup:
