rightie oh i better say my idea im going to try and make the most spectacular carnaval style performer/singer(opera) go for lots of feathers what do you think ? no sketches as yet but im on it ! stay on target!!!

09-05-2005, 08:14 PM
hey, good luck with the feathers :) sounds like an interesting idea

This is the first thing that popped in to my head when i thought of spectacular ,I saw a scene with a carnaval lady crossed a Diva opera singer like in fifth element on stage letting rip to the world .This sketch will be the first of many

Nice idea, I like the opera...

Your nice challenge it how you will make the singer voice and power to be appearance in the still image...

Good luck :)

nice feather

09-06-2005, 07:41 AM
Great sketch, promisses a godly appearance! :) heheh, best of luck and have loadsa fun mate!
bout the pose, i could picture her spreading her arms, so the phoenix spreads the wings...
keep it up and enjoy the ride! :bounce: :beer:

ooOooh... interesting sketch! This could be a very nice 3D image!!

09-06-2005, 08:11 AM
Good luck....!

09-06-2005, 08:11 AM
oh cheers guys nice to have some encouragement :thumbsup:

”the1st_angel” oh the pose was just taken from fifth element ill probably give her a much grander gesture (arms really high as if she lifting her voice to the next level + the wing idea is a good one thanks

“eYadNesS “ Now giving the voice power is going to be the hardest task. I need to give her a sense major presence on stage. Thought maybe have her feathers shacking like a peacock , maybe sound wave but that might look a rubbish ill figure it out .

thanks for your interest

09-06-2005, 08:14 AM
ouch ! :D

The sketch is really great ! I love it ! I'm curious to see how it will be in treedee ?!
next !

09-06-2005, 08:15 AM
maaan i love character works, ill follow the progress on this one:thumbsup:

09-06-2005, 08:40 AM
Hey man Good luck with the challenge! i love the sketch, the concept looks like it could really really work, one thing that i think could improve it alot though is the camera angle, maybe have it looking up from the left at the singer, giving her more presence.

Work on the compersition and you'll be flying!

Best of luck

Very nice idea... Really like the drawing too... Will she be on the stage all alone? Good luck in the challenge...

09-06-2005, 11:57 PM
Hey really like it. Perhaps she also shapes some sort of visual element with her hands as well? Some sort of holographic painting? Spheres she controls through her singing? Just something to add even another level of Spectacular.

09-06-2005, 11:59 PM
oo nice, cool drawing, good design. Looking forwad to the final pic. Very good sense of scale and movement

09-07-2005, 11:34 PM (

hey guy started doing lots of sketches and it helping me load, i think more planning now will help me gett just what i want later so im not rushing anything.
this one is a concept for the face mask an may be a little aztec to.i tried some poses with her hand rised like wings but she started to look a bit slutting ,am going for utter gace a girl you'd bring home to mum but with lots of feather. i know the sort of gesture i want so ill get it up soon as i can

09-08-2005, 01:30 PM
Very nice your concept, y like you draw, good luck :thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 02:53 PM
Great idea. I can't wait to see what you come up with for modeling all those feathers without ending up with a trillion polygons... alpha masks perhaps? Keep up the good work!

09-10-2005, 10:08 AM (

just a thought on how the feather are goin to be placed on the mask.The thing im not happy with is the size of the eye hole ,i think they are to big. And i think ill put lots of little sharp feathers round the egde of the mask to lead in to the big ones . plus i realised brushing my teeth this morning what the hell i have got myself in too lol

09-16-2005, 01:25 PM
Hi, Sam! Nice sketches! I like the idea of the carnaval dancer, they always remind me of a large, glitzy peacock, quite spectacular to behold. Good luck with the sketches, and maybe you should start thinking about color!

09-18-2005, 07:11 PM
Hi ROWAN. Looks so far interesting. Nice Sketches.

Good luck
xbo :scream:

09-26-2005, 09:25 AM
Awesome sketch! Will be interesting to see how it turns out. I really like the concept so far anyways ;)

09-26-2005, 06:04 PM
Feathery girlfriend to bring home to mom... hmm... interesting!!! Nice concept by the way, I really like it. Agree with OvidsMuse, might be nice to see her moving some stuff around with the power of music. Ok I'm subscribing. Good luck! :)

09-26-2005, 06:46 PM
Sketchs looking good, I like the feathers aswell. can't wait to see the modeling.

hey guys you thought i had gave up ha never not till the fat lady sings well in this case a rather skinny lady. she still needs a few tweaks like the hips and shoulders ratio. but apart from that i think ill start to texture her now . C&C welcome

10-18-2005, 08:33 AM
