Thanks to all who supported my thread!

03 March 2005, 07:18 AM am better at sketching with vectors...

03 March 2005, 07:23 AM (

I'm gussing a servant is not mistreated like a slave so I figure it to be a droid... Perhaps driving a human somewhere.

03 March 2005, 08:40 PM (

I'm not much of a painter... More draftsman style, I guess. Since concept will be judged over execution, I might do a "boring" side view. A droid driving it's master in an enclosed futuristic motorcycle, during a rainstorm, while she(the master) sleeps.

03 March 2005, 08:42 PM
no replies?? this looks like an excellent concept,theres no rule that u have to paint,maybe urs will stand out more cos its not,which is a good thing!!!

gud luck!!

03 March 2005, 09:02 PM
Thanks noob!

I'll try to have the back wheel done by later today.

03 March 2005, 05:51 AM (

I color at the same time as I draw, so... I'm not sure what milestone to put these in. Coloring as I go helps me find and define form which dictates my line art. I use default colors at first to work quick. Changing them later to fit within My color scheme should be a snap as all my overlayed transparencies are tinted with black. Thanks!

03 March 2005, 07:18 AM
Awesome, awesome work Ig. I'll be honest, its looking at how far you have come with your work that keeps me motivated more than anything. Cant wait to see this finished. Stay up playa!

03 March 2005, 07:48 AM
wow! never seen vector art in challenge before! your work will come out very interesting ! more update ! please!

03 March 2005, 10:38 AM
that looks amazing!

03 March 2005, 10:42 AM
Looks great and indeed the vector style looks great,it's differenent and so innovating.i was thinking myself to do some vector also maybe,don't know yet.because I think it's really amusing to create formes just like they come to ya head directly.
Anyway,I'm really curious of the final result and wish you all the luck and fun in this contest!!!

03 March 2005, 12:57 PM
Aiyee VECTOR ART?? dude all i can say is kudos this sure looks like it is gonna kick ass :applause:

03 March 2005, 09:20 PM
Thanks you guys, seriously keeps me motivated. Stay tuned.

03 March 2005, 05:11 AM
Some parts are off... Saving for the final.

03 March 2005, 05:32 AM (

Super anime style!!!

03 March 2005, 08:46 AM
Nice!!! Great in proof of your vector skills. As far as I have seen such works I never so such freedom of technicue, almoust like raster style. I'll keep watching your thread.

MY "Master and servant" thread ( (

03 March 2005, 09:20 AM
OMG this is gonna ownz!

03 March 2005, 09:39 AM

03 March 2005, 08:23 PM
Thanks again you guys. I'll have an update later tonight. Now I'm off to check out you guys' works.

03 March 2005, 01:13 AM (

The front is flowin' for me... I'll come back to the servant later. Thanks!
P.S. The windows are looking a little 80's airbrush illustrationy still. Will fix.

03 March 2005, 05:08 PM
i think the windows looks fine,excellent job!

03 March 2005, 09:24 PM (

Need to make the back wheel next, finish the servant... Start the master and on to the enviro. Thanks!

03 March 2005, 09:26 PM
ur one of the best vector artists i have come across,i mean it looks almost 3d

more more!!

03 March 2005, 09:29 PM
Dang Noob!.... Thanks. Looks like you're my number one fan.:)

03 March 2005, 09:37 PM
Excellent design; I don't think I've seen vector artwork before in the Challenges (there's gotta be a first sometime, right? :D ). I can already till this is going to be an interesting entry.

03 March 2005, 09:39 PM
heh..naw!! i just like things that are different,i guess people don't appreciate anything other than painted stuff in this challenge.i'm just open to everything.

i wish u the best of luck,not only in the challenge,but everything after.

... Ha-ha. :rolleyes: I was refering to the 2D Challenge.

03 March 2005, 01:56 AM
Wow Im lovin ur skillz....keep it up

03 March 2005, 07:50 AM (

Needs work still. Maybe a little too much though.

03 March 2005, 08:05 AM
:eek: :eek: :eek: awesome.
That's a very good 2d entry.
I'll keep 2 eyes on your thread.
You've done a very good job so far.
Keep it up and have fun.


03 March 2005, 08:09 AM
this is gonna get really really cool :twisted: :bounce: , love the artwork man, very much, i'd love to see more,


03 March 2005, 12:46 PM
great update!

03 March 2005, 07:39 AM (

This is sorta the idea... This needs to be drafted up at three-quarter view now... I think. I'm not sure I'm up for that one... I'll have to think about it for a minute.

03 March 2005, 07:43 AM
OOOOOh and thanks again you guys! I'm deep in thought about this one, I'll go sheck out your threads now.

03 March 2005, 06:45 AM (

Since there is good time left... I guess I will do this as a three quarter view.

03 March 2005, 07:50 AM
the last 2 updates are sick! however,i don't think website tags are allowed.

03 March 2005, 11:52 PM
Thanks NOOB!
I don't think any of My images are being hosted anywhere else... Am I missing something?

03 March 2005, 12:01 AM
Nice work dude. I love the vehicle design. Very nice technical approach to it. Good use of a vector base program. I am impress!!!


03 March 2005, 12:03 AM
I like working in vectors it is sooo clean! Looking real good...

03 March 2005, 12:20 AM
Thanks alot everyone. I should have an update soon.

04 April 2005, 08:23 PM
Damn son! Been busy?!?!?!

Jesus ig, youre going off! Excellent work bro, probably some of the best work Ive seen you do. Keep going!

04 April 2005, 08:30 PM
First off,

Let me give you mad props on the Vector Art.!!!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I am having trouble understanding your concept idea.

Are you just going with the flow or have you just not reveled it yet???

I will be keeping an eye on this thread.

04 April 2005, 08:30 PM

04 April 2005, 04:42 AM
Sexy vectors! Please tell us more about your concept. It's deadly cool looking. Clean and shiny. The draftsmanship is excellent. :bounce:

04 April 2005, 08:03 PM
Thanks alot for the support you guys. I know it looks like the Master and servant theme isn't real defined at this point but it will be there... Stay tuned.... I've got some more stuff on the way.

04 April 2005, 08:19 PM
glad to hear ur still in!

04 April 2005, 06:59 AM (

Getting a feel for my color scheme...

04 April 2005, 08:33 AM
looks excellent!

04 April 2005, 10:11 AM
just thought i'd voice my opinion too. my compliments. this is really nice!

what program/application are you using to achieve this look?

04 April 2005, 04:02 PM
looks great, u achieved that poster-like thing, that wndshield @ the rear of the mech. driver looks odd to me, i mean personally, but its just my thought... also, the girl looks too realistic, dont be offended, but is that a picture?... overall, its looking great!

04 April 2005, 07:25 PM
Hey... Thanks you guys... No worries, please voice your opinions, I'm a big boy and I can take 'em! This is far from done you guys. My final goal is to make this more realistic and less illustrationy... Too 80's looking atm. The woman is a just a place holder so you guys can see where I'm going with this. The droid as well as the bike still need more work. The final will be done in Aftereffects to create a more stylized, realistic, atmosphere.Cheers!

magikkman... I am using CorelDraw12. Later!

04 April 2005, 07:41 AM (

Pretty happy as a rough... Now I can get in here and have some fun!

04 April 2005, 09:42 AM
hehe, robis si tu stoho riadnu reklamu :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 08:23 PM
Yeah... I guess I am huh? Oh well, everyone has an art department, mine is me. Later!

04 April 2005, 09:36 PM
the face looks great igor!

04 April 2005, 06:19 AM (

Thanks NOOB! A little more work done on the woman.

04 April 2005, 06:52 AM
I totally want a robot to drive me to work so I can sleep like that. I think I'm seeing your concept a bit more clearly. The technique is excellent. I can't wait to see what comes next. I kind of like the 80's style rendering.

04 April 2005, 07:04 AM
Thanks Jami... I want a robot that drives me to work too. :)

04 April 2005, 08:41 PM
i'd like one of those vechiles delivered to my house immediatly!!

great work as usaul igor!

04 April 2005, 09:13 PM
excellent work igor, i like your style:thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 03:37 AM

She still needs work on her foot and pants.

Animated gifs are fun. Shhhhhhhhh...

04 April 2005, 08:31 AM
this is amazing stuff! so good to see something so fresh on the forum - i hope you go all out with this anime vector style, I'd love to see some abstract, graphic-based content come in too. love it, i'll be keeping an eye on this puppy!

04 April 2005, 02:53 PM
Today i had some time to browse around and i'm really fascinated by this drawing

04 April 2005, 01:34 AM
Thanks alot. Innovative is a compliment for sure... Stay tuned... It will get better!

I like the work on your site alot... The CGTalk winner is dope!

Robert Longfield
04 April 2005, 03:03 AM
Awesome style! I am honestly now intigued to try that sometime! Im keeping an eye on this!

04 April 2005, 08:50 PM (

Thanks Robert! Not sure if this is working or not... The face will need more ambient light I think.

04 April 2005, 10:48 PM
This is looking amazing, nice have a really unique clean style. good luck and keep posting!

04 April 2005, 06:15 AM (

Those are lights on the droid's ass. Not jets. Seeing alot of backpacks in some of you guys' entries gave me the idea to try and put one on my servant to try to make it more servanty... Word?
Anyway... It still needs more work on the pack, hand, shoe/foot, shoulder and upper arm. This pic is getting detailed. I don't think it will yield well under monitor res'. Later!

04 April 2005, 06:16 AM
Oh, and... Thanks Iris! Glad you like my thread!

04 April 2005, 08:25 AM
Wrong pic...

04 April 2005, 08:27 AM (

This is getting closer to being done...

04 April 2005, 08:32 AM
damn that looks excellent igor,came a long way,u do me proud hehehe.

truly amazing vectors.!

04 April 2005, 08:35 PM
looks great & unique!!!:bounce: :bounce:

04 April 2005, 08:41 PM
Right on you guys... Thank you. I know that a technical illustration like this gets downplayed alot so I don't expect much as far as the challenge goes. This was a BLAST to make though... And my confidence in tech illy has boosted tons.Thanks again!

04 April 2005, 04:27 AM
Thats NEAT!, unique style man, love it! :thumbsup:

05 May 2005, 07:51 AM
Hi Igor. Man, what are you talking about. I think you will win something (if not first place). Remember, they are looking for ideas way out there. And my friend, to me (maybe cause I am a vehicle fanatic as well-see my post if you have the time and you will see what I mean-), this is a way out there idea. Different, fresh, unique. And the style your using, um, I see nothing wrong with it. Actually, kudos to you my friend for doing such an outstanding job with this technical illustration. This type of art can EASLY make it into any type of art book. Ok, got to get to bed. Best to you buddy (fellow vehicle lover-smile). Oh man, what am I doing. Love the bike and robot. Very cool looking-smile. Also, no suggestions, your in own world here. :thumbsup:
Dragon, out.

Small test...
Thanks dragon... We'll see...

05 May 2005, 08:41 AM
whoa! great igor!

05 May 2005, 09:03 AM
nice work with the vectors!

05 May 2005, 06:37 AM (
Thanks Marcheen!
Might not make it... in.... time.

05 May 2005, 06:47 AM
interesting style. this one has a lot of potential for action and movement, but rightnow, i cant tell if its really moving. maybe offsetting the bike would do the trick? or maybe some perspective so that its either coming into the foreground or into the background...? also, the girl inside the bike is hard to read... might want to clarify her placement. otherwise, i think the bikes design is prety cool. the colors are fitting and the flowers are GERAT. haha, onward ho!

05 May 2005, 07:00 AM
Yeah... I agree. I'm better at the design elements anyway. Once I figure out my shapes, I sort of lose interest in environment placement and such. I can't change the perspective as it's too late but maybe I can add some foreground and background elements to show motion. Getting nice motion blur on the wheels is proving to be a challenge also.

I will brighten the girl up for more contrast. Thanks.

05 May 2005, 07:09 AM
I think you should just add a hint of the background. Foreground, you don't need it. I like the way you are showcasing the characters. Very straight on. Man, i bow to you, because you just gave vector base program a good name, if not, a better showcase of what you can do with it. Oh and definately the design looks SICK :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :buttrock:


05 May 2005, 07:14 AM (
Right on Arc80...
Getting there?

05 May 2005, 08:20 AM (

Almost there...

05 May 2005, 04:39 PM
THe background definately works dude. MOre for the eyes to see. Very nicely done :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


05 May 2005, 12:21 AM
Its coming together nicely!!:thumbsup:

Your Vector skills are top notch!!

05 May 2005, 03:13 AM (

Thanks! I do think that the background is a little busy and competes with the bike and characters atm. However, The last few elements should seperate it nicely and add a little motion as well as depth... Next stop... The finish line.

PS... Akira was a huge influence on me as a kid and this is sort of my homage to Otomo for inspiring me. Later!

05 May 2005, 03:28 AM
LOoks great dude. Okay, just a suggestion for the background, duplicate your background layer and do a motion blur filter, then adjust the opacity of that layer. You'll see, it should push it back and show less details and just give hints of lines. Then have another layer to make it a bit hazy.

I hope this helps a bit dude.

cheers:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

05 May 2005, 03:34 AM
Yo Arc,
I agree with you on the hazy layer... That's gonna happen for sure. I can't do the motion blur layer as the background objects are too far to blur. (And, I've already tried it).:)

05 May 2005, 01:03 AM (

Aaaaalmost there. A few more highlights on the bike, fix homie's shield and brighten up the woman inside. Should do her. Next sub will be my final. Thanks!

05 May 2005, 01:07 AM
Yo, very nice work on the background and the foreground element... TIIIGHT. Good call on that bro. I don't know what else you need to put, but just hurry up. Can't wait to see the final image home's. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bounce:

cheers and goodluck

05 May 2005, 09:08 PM
cmon man,this looks excellent!

05 May 2005, 09:12 PM
to me looks like you're done... love it dude, now all u need is finish it. Great job!!:thumbsup:

05 May 2005, 09:13 PM
wow, this changed a lot since i last saw it. i can almost feel the speed at which hes riding that thing... nice job man!

05 May 2005, 09:14 PM
great work! this is all looking good. now hurry up man!


05 May 2005, 10:04 PM
I'm glad you all like it... I'm going to brighten up the girl inside the bike since this is most about her and the droid relationship. I'm also going to try and add some raindrops to the ground, see if I can pull that off.

I'm still not as happy with showing the speed as I'd like. Not sure what's missing. I think another vehicle in the opposite lane, moving the opposite direction would set this pic off, but... Must.... Abandon..... Pic....

Thanks again for the few of you who have supported my thread. Later!

05 May 2005, 12:20 AM
OMG! this is awesome, a vector? wow!! a very unique entry. The style of render, the used of gradient, blur, transparency all this is great. nice technique. I like ur work man, ur my 1st choice.

05 May 2005, 12:23 AM
Thanks for noticing the techniques digitalhadz! Stay tuned for my final.

05 May 2005, 02:07 AM
Nice work mate, I'm a t shirt artist as well, I find myself working in vector more often than not.

05 May 2005, 02:51 AM
Thanks SteveV,
It is crazy, that I've learned vector illustration from doing silkscreen designs... Funny that you picked up on that. Later!

I just looked at the illustration work on your site... NICE!

05 May 2005, 07:03 AM
hey! this is very nice , original piece. like the master and servant theme you got there .

The way you paint looks very advanced, vector gfx?

anyway your piece looks very nice, if I would add a coment it would be that your background looks a bit to much photo realistic together with the bike. maybe your could tone down the background a bit?
well otherwise itīs good stuff man .

good luck in the challenge.

05 May 2005, 10:49 PM
realy good work!

the colors n' the scenary looks great!

hurry! finish it!

05 May 2005, 02:18 AM (

Good luck to you as well!

05 May 2005, 06:16 AM
Awsome work! Nice to see some vector art! There is so much good work on this site! I'm glad I'm not a judge!

05 May 2005, 06:25 AM
Wow, nice vectors! I like the concept also... reminds me of my road trips... they only wake up for food!!

05 May 2005, 08:57 PM
Thanks alot! I had a blast making this...

05 May 2005, 06:43 AM
Congratulations dude on a very nice job well done. YOu are the Vector King :applause: :bounce: :applause:

cheers and see you around :buttrock:

05 May 2005, 07:20 AM
Very cool vision of the future. Excellent representation of the characters. She is delicate and sleeping peacefully while the robot is portrayed as considerate for the care of his human companion. Great Idea!

Good luck to you

05 May 2005, 09:52 AM
I mean, excellent interpretation of the whole M+S thing, but you just went for the funky bot and bike design, admit it! :D

Great, tight stuff!


05 May 2005, 06:31 PM
Thanks you guys... Yeah, had to do the funky robot/bike design piece!

Man, thanks for noticing those subtle details. You've just vindicated my painting. Thanks!
