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. :)

It is superb, I don't like cartoon but this style is coool:applause:

05 May 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 May 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 May 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 May 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 May 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 May 2004, 11:26 AM

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

05 May 2004, 12:41 PM

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

05 May 2004, 03:06 PM
looks very lovely:p :p

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

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

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


05 May 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 May 2004, 12:31 AM

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 May 2004, 08:25 PM
google: pour le moment c'est en negoce dans les chaines francaise (et chaine international), si tout ce passe bien oui on va engager.

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

here ( :) :)

05 May 2004, 08:43 PM

Je suis candidat.
(L'idee de presentation de votre video est vraiment tres bien trouvee !)

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


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


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

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

05 May 2004, 08:15 AM
:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

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

05 May 2004, 01:47 PM
