Wow! Looks very awesome. Your sense of style carries well throughout all the models. The lighting and texturing seem to work well with it too. Post more images if you can. :)

05-01-2004, 10:50 PM
Hahaha the short is great!! The animation and the expressions are so well done, I didn't understand a word that he was saying but I enjoyed myself very much :D

But is this just a teaser? Will there be a longer version or something? because you posted some pictures that weren't in the short

05-01-2004, 10:58 PM
the images come from the episode in construction
the trailer was built to sell the series, coming soon:)
sylvain tradiveau (lead anim) will put a link on the trailer in English

akai : héhé un nouveau pixar tu va loin la, mais il est vrai qu 'on essaye de tout faire en france plutot qu'a l'étranger.

nzo: thanks my friend, quant est -ce que nous poste une de tes dernieres oeuvres?:)

I find interressant to show the combination with a g.i render and scanline layers.

05-02-2004, 10:26 AM
aye!!!!!! Bonne dieu dareoner, cest tres tres tres tres cute!!. Thank goodness I understand french. It was so funny i cried. I can't wait to see the commercial. The renders look sooo nice. And the animation is very well done too. So funny and full of character.

Merci....... for the laugh. :wavey:


05-02-2004, 10:41 AM
Looks very entairtaining. Animation is good and voice over sounds realy good as well. Although i don't know a word in french.
This is by far the best character animation i've seen for a TV series. I hope you keep the same quality over the next episodes.
Let us know when you have more!

05-02-2004, 11:17 AM
the trailer is awesome..
didn´t understand anything but that french language... :D

that will be a fantastic tv serie IMO

good luck :thumbsup:

05-02-2004, 11:26 AM
great style. Can't wait to see more on this... keep it up guys.


05-02-2004, 11:58 AM
Wonderful, I love the style and lighting and the animation is very well done. I didn't understand all he said but the timing was superb.:)

Good work!

05-02-2004, 12:22 PM
Whoa, that is some great 3d animation and 3d design. I really liked your presentation style. Very entertaining.

05-02-2004, 12:41 PM
Great job dareoner ;) i'm glad to visit this thread here, it's much more informative here than on cafesale ;) and yes, the trailer rocks, du pixar tout craché !

05-02-2004, 12:58 PM

05-02-2004, 01:17 PM

05-02-2004, 02:59 PM
wow.. amazing, beautiful esprit :)



ps: personally I'd put more light\life in the jar (in the 2nd image )... something like to get more visual contrast with an hyper real glass and its 'bottle' environment.

05-02-2004, 03:02 PM
Very nice;)

05-02-2004, 03:06 PM

Most of us here like Quicktime better. Windows Media player very bad for streams.

05-02-2004, 10:26 PM
yes man, i prefer quicktime to, but the link is not my personal web site... :)

05-02-2004, 11:53 PM
any way to get this series via satellite in the States?


05-03-2004, 12:15 AM
Extremely fun character, and really great work on the animation, I can't undestand a word of it, but its done so well I don't even care what he's saying cuz im entertained by his movement. Inspiring.:)

05-03-2004, 12:31 AM
wow! tres beau travail.... les images sont tres intéressant , le design est hallucinant , l'eclairage aussi ... bref , un travail de qualité !

Goggle : la voix est de mathieu delarive, a la base c'est un acteur qui n'as jamais fait de doublage pour film d'animation, on a reçu beaucoup de gens (avec des voix trop connu) et mathieu est sortie du lot.....du coup il a aussi fait la voix de la pub noos (sur mon site)

mimo8 : i don't know the problem with mac and streaming...the link for the .mov is down for the moment, please wait

05-04-2004, 08:25 PM

for the first pict :
the time for a vray layers is 20 mn ( 2400x1600)
"All pass are rendered with Vray?" 4 pass rendered with vray

layer compositing

(L'idee de presentation de votre video est vraiment tres bien trouvee !)

05-05-2004, 07:13 PM
I really love the style and lighting in the stills. The roach reminds me of the fleas in a Bug's Life thats a compliment not an insult.

05-05-2004, 08:10 PM
Looks good, is the label on the sid eof the box in the fridge backwards?


05-05-2004, 11:18 PM
shahrokh, guowei,Pidoo, mcfly : thanks very much for the team of this trailer.

mr biloo : merci mon bilou, tes le premier sur la liste si on fait le 52x13

google : oki je note .

sagleon : bug's life a insult?? big compliment i think....thanks so much:)

Gavin_G : "the label on the sid eof the box in the fridge backwards?"....... it's an error :hmm: can be your computer has a problem :)

direction lighting "more dark"

05-05-2004, 11:34 PM
Hahaha, damn this dyslexic computer...looks like its time for a format. nice lighting job


05-15-2004, 05:29 AM
DAREONER: Awsome work! when this is all done you should make a Making of Reel! to show how you did all your layering and maybe a comentery of how you did it! Just a thought! But Did i tell you Awsome Work! Keep it up lcant wait to see the movie!:bounce: :D :beer: :bowdown:

05-15-2004, 11:44 AM
dabuel :
thanks very much
for a making of reel why not, you can see a making for this trailer on my website.

e338 : ton message a été éffacé (le hack de cgtalk?)
Comme tu le disais ,effectivement nous ne pourrons pas tenir cette qualité (des images et non du trailer) pour une série, j ai travailler les deux illustrations dans une config "cinema" afin d'illustrer l univers (et de démarcher)......donc impossible de tenir sur un budget 52x13....on va essayer tout de meme de relever le niveau des series 3d qui sont a mon sens tres pauvre en rendu...

05-15-2004, 05:35 PM
man,ur stuff just amazing ,just :surprised :bowdown: :bowdown: :thumbsup:

05-15-2004, 08:42 PM
WOW......I like it
reminds me of Pixar's animation:) :)

05-17-2004, 08:15 AM
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Absolutely stunning pics and animation. I love it, Dareoner. Five stars from me.

05-17-2004, 01:47 PM
