11 November 2003, 05:20 AM (

This is an image i did for the contest, and it also is going to be a Short Movie, that i´ll be working for in the next year. For now i plan to release it in December 2004, but time will tell. There will be a clay look in it, so fell free to reply with critics and comments, I´ll be pleased to have some feedback from you guys.

11 November 2003, 05:39 AM

11 November 2003, 06:24 AM

11 November 2003, 08:52 AM

11 November 2003, 09:34 AM
Very well done. I like the mood and the characters. Looking forward to the animation. :applause:

11 November 2003, 09:48 AM
Cool render! I really like colors and lighting.
Can't wait to see the animation!
Good work!

11 November 2003, 09:58 AM
This is rl grate. I like the lighting and the clay look.

11 November 2003, 09:57 PM
Hey guys... thanx for the feed back, and it still have no animation... but soon ill make some tests with them...

11 November 2003, 11:44 PM
This is awesome! I really like the fact that you are going for a clay look - it really suits it :) I'm sure it will look great when you start animating it.

I think it's really funny that this poor guy has not one but two hooks!! How does he dress himself? :p

Your style reminds me a lot of Lucasarts Monkey Island games - which is a style I really love!

I think this piece is fantastic - I'm putting it on the front page. Hope you get some good exposure for your film :D

11 November 2003, 12:02 AM
I agree. This is somewhat of a Monkey Islandian work, although I think the clay nature of it makes it truly stand out. Nice job on the character.

11 November 2003, 12:10 AM
Fala André blz??
Conquistando o pessoal por aqui tb, hein??
N me lembro se cheguei a postar alguma coisa no teu tópico lá do contest, mas to acompanhando ele de perto.
O meu tópico do contest eu larguei por falta de tempo, mas eu continuo fazendo ele, só naum pro contest.
Mas fico muito legal a sua cena, parabéns!

11 November 2003, 12:11 AM
I think the environment really stands out--looks really warm and friendly, with the volumetric lights shining down and all.

And yeah, that point about having 2 hooks has me confused too... how DOES he get around?

11 November 2003, 12:26 AM
You really deserves the front page my friend because this work is GREAT!!!!! :buttrock:

Será que os outros terão chance lá no contest???? hehehhe

Abração brother!

11 November 2003, 12:35 AM
No one dreads toilet paper time more than this guy :)

It's looking great so far. I too am enjoying the clay look

11 November 2003, 12:46 AM
i love it - great style, texturing, and lighting. it's freagin hilarious that he has two hooks. i was almost expecting two peg-legs...

11 November 2003, 01:31 AM
very good. A little ... too toy-like for me but well that's just me :p good work overall.

Monkey Island rocked, though I only played the first 2. CG was not what monkey island was about right, the voices were the strength and the extreme hilarious humour :D good ol' days.

11 November 2003, 03:16 AM
Wow lots of feed back, thanx Leigh!!!!:bounce:

Thanx everybody fro the comments and critics, thank you ville and Antropus, know that your work is inspiring for me my friend.

well people are talking 'bout the two hooks, well just think about the hilarious things that coud happen in a short movie to this guy, just 'couse he doesn't have a hand! And Yes, Monkey Island is my favorite adventure game, i love the art work of that game and its one of my references in the cartoon stile, and the main inspiration for this image. Now I'm gonna move to the outside of the ship!

Once again thanx everyone

11 November 2003, 03:40 AM
very nice ... nice lighting...cute characters

11 November 2003, 03:47 AM
I love the style!!!! Very Guybrush Threepwood! Cant wait to see the short.

11 November 2003, 03:55 AM
Very nicely done treasure chest looks mint

11 November 2003, 04:39 AM
I like the light !! nice job

11 November 2003, 06:00 AM
I must say that you captured the clay look. I like the lighting in your first image.

11 November 2003, 06:05 AM
wow! thats great!:thumbsup: i really like the colour usage and lighting.

great work man! go on:thumbsup:

11 November 2003, 06:14 AM
I like the clay look. It really comes across well. The lighting fits the environment nicely. But I did have a question about his right eyebrow. Did you intend for the eyepatch to go under his eyebrow? Just wondering. It's a solid piece. Nice work

11 November 2003, 06:49 AM
Nice work :)

11 November 2003, 06:55 AM
Outstanding! But I have a baised towards pirates. :thumbsup: It looks great and I love the clay look aswell. I can't wait to see the animation... if it's anything like the modeling goodness.

11 November 2003, 06:57 AM
i love it! great idea with the clay look and feel.

11 November 2003, 08:32 AM
thw character rocks, but light and shading uberrock:buttrock:

could you perhaps tell us abbout your lightrigg and the texturing ... would be great to share your pirate-lightning-treasure

I am allready looking forward to every still coming out of your production and when the short is ready I´ll sit in the first row ... get your popcorn ready:thumbsup:

11 November 2003, 09:12 AM
I love the use of the light!!!!:love: :love: :love:

11 November 2003, 09:12 AM
The arms look very thin, but then again, that might be what you wanted..In the first picture it's kinda hard to see the mans facial expression..

This is an outstanding piece of work, the colors and compositions are great! Keep it up:)

I almost forgot to say hey to the community. I'm new here, looking forward to interacting with you guys and gals!

11 November 2003, 09:12 AM
Hi kid , you made it . Incredible job. I loved the mood and the colours. The enviroment are great too.
E eu concordo com o Antropus, você fêz uma covardia com os outros do contest.

Eles não vão ter a menor chance contra vc!!!!! :)

Congrats !!!

11 November 2003, 09:23 AM

11 November 2003, 10:35 AM
Great work André! Once more, I liked most the style.

Great work! love the fact that he has two hooks in the place of his hands, the clay look is also fantastic.:applause:

Muito loco, vŽio!

11 November 2003, 11:41 AM
looks very nice.


11 November 2003, 12:19 PM
AWSOME work Andre!!!!! As usual!!! :applause:

You certainly deserved this front page!!! :beer:


11 November 2003, 01:08 PM
I like the clay feel of it. My only crit would be for a different colour for the shirt.

11 November 2003, 02:34 PM
Hey Andre!!

You are the man!!!Your work just rocks!! Congratualtions for you!! You deserve it!!

Um abraço!!

11 November 2003, 03:22 PM

11 November 2003, 03:39 PM
Loving it all the way.

11 November 2003, 04:03 PM
Looks great!

One crit:

Its going to be kinda hard to get much expression out of his face when you cant see it. First thing I thought when I saw the image was, "Where's this guys face?" It was really hard to read. The parrot stood out really well, but I had to look at the second image before I understood what was going on.

11 November 2003, 04:29 PM
oh man, this is really beautifull, i like the color, the lighting expecially....congratulations

11 November 2003, 04:50 PM
bom trampo man.,,..,.
keep on going....



quero ver a animation....


11 November 2003, 09:39 PM
Hi, great clay style.
Can you tell us how do your clay material?
Sorry mine english.
Un saludo.

11 November 2003, 12:34 AM
Hi guys, tank you all for the great feedback.
Mr.Solo and Blackbean , nice to see you guys here. thanx 4 the comments!

Agreenster, well this guy is going to talk from his mustache, the lipsync will be done in most part from his mustache. since it is a clay style guy, his emotions will not be as great as Wasawsky (damn they animated him damn good!!!), but he is still going to have lots of emotions, his eyes could no deform too much, but his eyebrows will move a lot... and a lot of body expression, strong poses and strong line actions! wich me luck heheheh!:thumbsup:

11 November 2003, 02:58 AM
so in the film, will the pirate divulge how he lost his two hands?

does he have a chip on his shoulder like Captain Hook has?

I would imagine him being a happy guy with all that "booty" from the chest! :scream:

11 November 2003, 03:29 AM
Pretty good. It is a bit too colorful for my taste, and those barrels look way too clayey. The volume lighting looks good.

11 November 2003, 04:12 PM
"Face" I found that very good scene, an only style, that is that really matters!!!!

"Until more"

11 November 2003, 11:13 AM

11 November 2003, 01:44 AM
Excelent job!!! :bounce: :bounce:

Bom trabalho! It's we on the tape!

Devagar a gente chega lá!

Parabéns!!! :bowdown:

Hey, that's very cool! I like how you kept the mesh so simple!

Care to expand a little on the clay texture look?

Great character! Good luck with him!

This one reminds me about Monkey Island 3.
Cool one...
