The 7th cup of the apocalypse, alienside D-DAY.

09-06-2005, 01:16 AM
Goodluck. Like the concept. I'm curious of what it will be.

09-06-2005, 04:50 AM
Lookign like a very grande scene. Good luck, man :) the sketch looks cool.

09-06-2005, 07:52 AM
Great concept - looking forward to seeing more.

09-06-2005, 08:16 AM
Good luck....!

Apocalypse 16: 7th Cup of Apocalypse ( Apocaliptus in greek )
<< And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague of it was exceeding great. >>.

Sub-sonic ice comet, with thyxotropic alien's capsule falling on antartica.
Prelude to an invasion, alien's D-DAY.

I can see this looking spectacular, nice concept

09-06-2005, 12:08 PM
This could potentially look spectacular, it seems to have the scope to do so

Best of luck!

09-06-2005, 01:16 PM
Love the concept mate, Really nice, I can imagine it in my mind.
I wonder how you will make it more original in design.

Id like the oppotunity to do some ice in my entry too :)

09-10-2005, 11:42 PM (

Just a little W.I.P.

09-12-2005, 02:14 AM
Your pen sketch is awesome, good luck. :thumbsup:

09-13-2005, 06:41 PM
romelalgo, Clanger, superslug, Magnemar : Thx men.

stripe : ice is a challenge ;)

sloggo : Will do my best thx.

09-13-2005, 06:45 PM
Hey Shortgrey, you certainly captured my attention. I'll be watching you :)

09-13-2005, 11:56 PM (

Just testing before continuing the modeling session....

09-14-2005, 12:10 AM
Awesome concept and wicked camera angle, can't wait for updates.

09-14-2005, 07:09 AM
Great work so far, I agree that camera angle is nice, watch out with the stars they seem big but I'm sure it's a temporary background.

09-14-2005, 11:34 AM
ar LutiK : yes it's a temporary background but you are right the stars seems too big.
will change that for sure ;)

09-14-2005, 11:40 AM
Very nice work so far
and nice sketch
good luck

09-15-2005, 12:32 AM
I viewed your last image, I think the alien spaceship must be more "bump".

The ice material is good but very flat, the sss simulation can be more contrast.


09-15-2005, 06:52 AM
This is a very cool idea - execute it well, and you have a great image on your hands.

09-15-2005, 08:53 AM
Hello Shortgrey, I agree with the suggestions of romelalgo. You are going just fine.

09-15-2005, 05:14 PM
Thx guys i know i have a lot to do, i'm working on it , i agree with those suggestions.

09-18-2005, 09:54 PM (

Just playing with my comet.

09-28-2005, 05:17 PM (

Just a test for texturing the iceberg.

09-28-2005, 05:23 PM
The iceberg test looks pretty promising! What about working some hard edges in there somewhere too?`


11-09-2005, 01:29 PM
Waiting for updates.

11-09-2005, 01:39 PM
Good luck for ice. I know the problem:D

11-12-2005, 11:33 PM (

Hi guys, sorry for the lack of updates but i have been busy at work for too much time.
But i'm still working on it.
i keep the pressure ^^.

11-13-2005, 08:39 AM (

Just playing with particules, still a lot of work to do...

11-13-2005, 08:21 PM (

Added some meteor, the particules are not very good must work on that.

11-14-2005, 10:21 PM (

I am playing with my particules, i think a thinner smoke is better.

11-16-2005, 01:23 AM
Hi, the thinner is better, but more chaos in the particles is neccesary. The ships are everywhere, is not good, and the particles angle of drop are erratic, could you give to scene a direction or order.
Don't have a lights in the scene? The ice material don't working good, more roughness please.
The background to the night, is rare. Excuse me these observations, I really like your concept and I want to improve it.

11-16-2005, 06:59 PM
Thx Romelalgo, all your words are right, i'm working on it as soon as possible.

11-19-2005, 11:27 PM (

After romelalgo words i changed some things ( thx man ).

Still a lot of work to do.

11-21-2005, 12:36 AM (

added the depht and shadow pass, modified the particules a little.

11-23-2005, 12:27 AM (

This will be my final modeling for this challenge.

Drop Zone Antartica

28 August 1999 :

Apocalypse 16: 7th Cup of Apocalypse.
<< And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague of it was exceeding great. >>.

All started thus in this morning of August, the first waves broke zenith to come to strike the Antarctic ground. Inside the subsonic comets, the thyxotropic capsules prepare has to release the virus alien ' Apocaluptis '. Today, slowly, the end of the man start.
