hi everybody,
my first internet challenge , the concept sketch will come soon
for sure we`ll have lot of fun with this amaizing topics

sorry for my english..........

09-07-2005, 03:57 AM

here it is , my concept for the challemge, it`s really the first idea witch came to me and i need still to develop it, i like the camera angle and the dinamic of the picture.
a man who`s jumping from a buildind for catctch something, the camera angle will be from the ground to the sky with a accentuate perspective.
Now , i`m still thinking about the reason why this character Benji Jump from this building...
- maybe the building is on fire, the fire man can`t go there because it`s too hight so the man has to jump for catch a extinguisher...
- just the character has a cigarette and want to light it with match witch are on the street
-still thinking for other idea[url="http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/entries/11/8294/8294_1126065430_large.jpg"] (http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/entries/11/8294/8294_1126065430_large.jpg)

09-07-2005, 07:22 AM
i get now a second idea witch will permit me to play with the color and the lighting:

-a old poor fisherman on a old little wood boat is fighting for catch a giant scary fish,on the final picture we will see both up and under the sea , the giant fish arrive and the old man fighting for try to get this SPECTACULAR catch... but he still doesn`t see this fish and ignore that this fish is soo big and dangerous...he`s fighting and he`s obstinate to get his own dead...

i quite like this idea, but the first one also , i`ll think about this tonight and make my choice for tomorrow for begin the modeling as soon as possible...

09-07-2005, 08:08 AM
cool idea, the camera angle is indeed very nice!
perhaps let him jump after somthing he dropped, and is able to grab it just before impact...
dunno what really :p or he steals candy from a kid that just passes :)
you'll figure something out! good luck :)

09-07-2005, 08:39 AM
thank you , i like your idea of the candy witch can be steal from the hand of a child who just pass in the street , i`ll decide for tomorrow if i chose this or my fisherman idea.....

after a long brainstorming all night long yesterday i decide to chose my idea of the fisherman and the spectacular fish , this concept will permit me to play with the lighting and the environment much more than my first idea and i really like the subject, now let`s the modeling begin!!!!

here is the reference picture i`ll use for the concept of the giant fish/sea snake, for sur it`ll have the looking of one of these ugly and strange fish we can find in a deep deep ocean

09-08-2005, 04:42 AM
I like your idea, and your going for one ugly fish.

really cool perspective you got there to, gonna keep an eye on you. :thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 05:06 AM
I like the concept comp you have. It would look gret if the fish is have emerged from the water so we see the details on its face as well. Neat idea!

09-08-2005, 05:33 AM
Yeh, one ugly scary fish dude.Nice idea.

09-08-2005, 06:14 AM
i was thinking also about show the head of the fish out of the water but also i like the idea that the man still don`t know that this fish is so big and dangerous but i`ll light the scene for we can see the head clearly:bounce:
i can`t wait , tonight i draw the fish and begin the mod!

09-08-2005, 06:33 AM
nice concept...hard modeling i think...good luck :thumbsup:

09-08-2005, 10:42 AM
yes, the new idea is better !

my drawing for the composition and the general shape of the fisherman, i want to give him a weak looking for put him in a situation really desesperate

here it is my scary fish, i`ll mix between the the fish we can find in the deep ocean, a sea snakke and a little of alien head...

09-10-2005, 06:37 AM
nice scary fish!! seem very mad :)

09-10-2005, 02:26 PM
nice sketch of that fish, i would like to see how this turns out in the modeling phase, im looking to do a scary looking fish too.. im hoping to see this before i model mine.. nice sketch.

here it is the first modelisation step of my fish, really basic right now , will add lot of mod details...

09-13-2005, 03:12 AM
cool idea i think it'll be great if you can capture the oblivious look on the fisherman's face completely unaware of the monsterous fish.

09-13-2005, 03:19 AM
...here is the reference picture i`ll use for the concept of the giant fish/sea snake, for sur it`ll have the looking of one of these ugly and strange fish we can find in a deep deep ocean

Hahahahaha!... I was using some of those exact same pictures for my reference too! :D

09-13-2005, 03:20 AM
i`m still not sure about the face design for the fisherman , i want it be fine and look weak but i decide to begin by the ugly fish :twisted: and see later for the fisherman, sketch of his head will come soon

fish mod, i mod the general shape of the fish, now lets add some details to this guys!

09-13-2005, 06:32 PM
I like your concept, reminds me a little bit of Hemingway's "The old man and the sea".
Your fish looks already spectacular. I'm looking forward to your next update!


09-13-2005, 06:39 PM
Cool idea kingfish3d, and your fish model looks very good. Good luck.

09-13-2005, 06:58 PM

09-19-2005, 11:23 AM
hei cool big fish man! and nice concept man!:thumbsup: a thread to follow around!

09-19-2005, 01:04 PM
I like you concept sketch where fish spans under the boat and her tail stands behind fishermans back,so the guy has no idea what is he up against.
really cool,and that exact fish is probabaly one of the best for modeling.
Keep strong pal. :)

09-19-2005, 01:21 PM
Pretty scary fish.Nice pose for the fish aswell.

09-19-2005, 01:29 PM
so nice and strong .:D

09-19-2005, 01:37 PM
Love the fish, menacing but still natural/earthly looking.

Going to have the angler part glow or leave it as is? Would be interesting if it let out a patter of like to similuate a school of fish or something.. which attracted the poor unsuspecting fisherman.

09-19-2005, 02:39 PM
I like you Fish ,It seems to be so dangaruos to me,:twisted:

09-19-2005, 02:51 PM

09-27-2005, 01:57 PM
Your monsterfish looks pretty wicked with textures.

09-27-2005, 02:14 PM
i just play little with the mental ray shader, i`m i beginner with this rendering software , there isn`t any texture just the shader and color and some change in photoshop.

here is my fish with his shader and some displacement map, , stille have to had a diffuse, bump and specular texture but i`m already quite happy with this result, now my big concert is to make feel on the picture that it`s under the ocean...working on it for the next update

09-28-2005, 02:16 PM
darm, this is really great, I love the way the last update looks. GOOD GOOD, keep it up man, that composition look great

09-28-2005, 02:26 PM
Great -it is starting to come together now ,well done.

09-28-2005, 02:32 PM
Looks good. I think there are about 5 or 6 of us doing giant mutant angler fish this challenge. We should have our own category. :D

09-28-2005, 07:37 PM
Your fish is simply spectacular, awesome modeling :thumbsup:

09-28-2005, 07:46 PM
This is looking really great! Cool fish, nice start on the textures, pretty dynamic pose and I must congratulate you on the compostion of the last render, it's quite beautiful.

Beatutiful fish - shader, model and all. Very nice job so far :thumbsup:

09-29-2005, 04:21 PM
That's terrific... great model

Good luck:thumbsup:

09-29-2005, 07:06 PM

here it is my final, or almost final texturing for the fish, if things have to change i`ll do later , now i`ve to begin the fisherman and the little boat, thank a lot for your nice comment :))

09-30-2005, 10:54 AM
That fish is looking awesome-exellent textures ,they work perfectly.Keep it up dude.

10-01-2005, 02:17 AM
Gunilla,Maxter,madshooter : thank you!!:)

SONIC-X : thank you for interest om my work!:bounce:

10-01-2005, 03:34 AM
I'm glad you picked your second concept. Ironically I watched Futurama last night and they played the "Lost city of Atlanta" episode. Bender caught a giant fish which dragged Planet Express down to the ocean... shame Futurama didn't last another season or two...

ok, now a meaningfull critique...

The jaw bothers me a bit. It looks like it would move like a pressure wrench (up and down) instead of like a hinge, maybe making the end of the mouth less rounded would help.

10-01-2005, 04:22 AM
i agree with you for the mouth, i think it come that i just group everyelemnet of the fish and blend everything for get this position, in the finla composition i`ll move everything separatly and it`ll give an better effect to the fish face,
thanks for your advice and comment man :thumbsup:

i begin the modeling of the little boat, just for see, i put the fish and the beginning of my boat on the composition , lot of work on the water for the waves and the lighting...

10-04-2005, 12:27 PM
Hey, that looks a very interesting image and a cool beat! Nice wet shader, but i think you you should put some water over the fish cuz it makes a weird perspective now, anyway you talked about it so i think you gotta work on it then..

good luck ,im looking forward !

10-04-2005, 04:18 PM
Damn, scary stuff. Nightmare material.

10-04-2005, 05:54 PM
hi kingfish 3d.
if you whant you could do a viking saga out of this,when tor tryed to catch the midgard snake, whith a giant called hymer.
9 years ago i did a sculptur in fimo ((for kids) so its a little bit carton), for a viking museum in sweden, and i think your master piece could do great to expres the story better than i did that time.
here is the story and the old picture of my sculpting.
(if you dident like the thing, sorry youst tell me and i remove the post)
the story...
one day is Tor travelling to the giants land. there he meet the giant Hymer, that challange Tor on a fishingchallange. Tor accept but wondering what he shall use for bait. The giant answer tat he must fixed that him self. Tor are then wandering out to the enclosed pasture of the giant with his bullock and there he is chosen the best of them all, Himinjod, takes the bullocks head to bait.

After a while the giant went worried and said that they were on the Midgardssnakes water. When tor stopped the boat and start to fichm, the giant went even more worried.

They took Hymers boat and off they went. Tor throw out the anchor with the head and hold the anchorrope. then it started to bite, he dragged in the catch and it was the Midgardssnake himself. Tor pulled and toke some support against the boats floor*but his foot went right trough.
After a while*Tor finally got the Midgårdssnake to the surface, he took his hammer Mjölner to brake the snakes head. Then the terrifaid giant cut the anchorrope. Midgardssnake went back to the deep sea and Tor went so mad, he hit Hymer so hard that he fell overboard. Now Hymer had to swim the whole way back to Jotunheim, where the giants live
the sculpture i did for the story..

tor o hymer (http://alexsculpt.0catch.com/div/TOR-01.JPG)

see you and great work and :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

10-04-2005, 06:47 PM

10-05-2005, 07:40 AM
Cipher : thank you, i agree with you, the details on the sea will come later i need lot of test for add some particule and water motion around the fish i get a nice explaination on the finding nemo dvd for create sea water... testing testing...

Dvelasco : thanks man

Alex.h. : wouaw, nice story and it can be a nice background for my picture, i`ll still keeping my original idea of my weak fisher man , i really want make feel the danger for the character , but keep your story in mind if i don`t find a good character design for my fisherman.
also nice sculpture :thumbsup: and thank for your comnents

Gus_glifton : thank you, i really like his work, i spend lot of time on the lighting and texturing for this beast, now my main concern is to get the same style for the boat and the fisherman......

10-05-2005, 09:34 AM

10-05-2005, 09:41 AM
yes there is still no texture and mod details on the boat , i`m working on it actually, update is coming soon with some change for correct the perspective fish/boat like my original concept

10-05-2005, 11:00 AM

10-06-2005, 11:37 AM

10-12-2005, 07:36 PM
Great idea and good modeling & texturing. All looks verry cool. :thumbsup:

Will you add scales to the fish? It looks a little "dull" now :curious:

10-12-2005, 08:14 PM
That composition is really spooky kingfish3d:argh: You've communicated a real sense of impending danger... The monster looks great lit the way it is too:thumbsup:

10-12-2005, 08:53 PM
Wow...Incredible Work on the Texture man:thumbsup:

10-12-2005, 09:39 PM

cheers man!

10-12-2005, 10:33 PM
I have been through your thread a few times and never really commented, but I must say this is coming togoether exceptionally well!

The lighting on the boat is fantastic! The fish is absolutely wonderful...

Jeez I have a long ways to go!

10-14-2005, 07:09 AM
Sonic-X, alex.h. : thank you man :thumbsup:

Nomad : thanks :) , i`ll do some little change on the texture but still don`t know if i will add some clear scale , i want to give slimy looking to the fish and i`m affraid that the scale will not give this effect

Daddymack : Thank you it was mt goal :)

3rd user : thank you the rendering work help a lot for this result also

yunisirees : be carrefull man , don`t swin to far :twisted: , cheers

hammajamma : thank you and welcome on my thread:thumbsup:

It's all coming together nicely, boat looks good now.

work in progress on my boat , still will probably do some change on the light ,i like the way it is now but i`m afraid that it`s not gona work for the final composition lighting....

10-18-2005, 08:47 AM
Gaetan, last time I saw your fish i tought he was just to cool, and your concept was simple but great, especially the camera angle but now that I see the boat and how spooky you are going, I'm just loving it more and more, this is a super cool image, really one of my favorite, the mood is going to be stunning :thumbsup:

10-18-2005, 09:50 AM
wouaw, really thank you man for your nice comment:thumbsup: , it motivate me more again for improve again and again this picture:) :)

a work in progress of the under sea effect i want to give to the ``undersea part`` of my finla picture, still have to add something in the foreground, probably some seaweath...

10-19-2005, 07:34 AM

10-19-2005, 08:28 AM
looking very very kewl man.. very nice image king, like sonic said it looking better and betetr as it's coming together.. well done!! one of my favourites so far champ

10-19-2005, 09:11 PM
what a great concept you have here! very original to do these deep sea fish on the surface. I've always loved those crazy fish. I really like the modelling of the fish-it looks scary and fantastic! and I prefer the composition2 version..you could even make the boat a tiny bit smaller perhaps, but it's all good! look forward to more.http://img347.imageshack.us/img347/5996/smileyeye26vj0az.gif

10-20-2005, 05:50 AM
I really like what I see. Great work on textures of the fish and the boat:thumbsup: . The fish looks amazing and the overall mood is already exciting. Great progress and I'm looking forward to see more!:bounce:


10-20-2005, 06:28 AM
That's really great ....really....but i think it will be even cooler if you could make the picture so that you can see the surface of the water....and on the surface place a boat.So that the picture suggests that the seamonster is after the boat.

Just a thought...

10-20-2005, 06:54 AM
I don't know what's scarier - the fact that I haven't seen your thread until now or the scene you are making! I've been missing the action! Excellent work and I can't even describe how cool looking this is becoming! I LOVE the detail work. I also LOVE the composition. Don't blow it with a crappy fisherman model ;) Just joking!

10-20-2005, 08:46 AM
Looks really great now ! clean cool work !

10-20-2005, 09:43 AM
Xin chaooooooooo :D
cool concept, great modelling and texturing, n very powerfull composition... Yep, this one's gonna be awesome, that's for sure !!!

10-21-2005, 07:37 AM
MD.Tangir : thanks man :) , for the glossiness on the boat i`ll do some little change but i`m already quite happy with this result, it`ll be on the water so i need this wet effect...

SONIX-X : thank you!!!

Neeno : yes little by little i try to bring the differents elemts of the composition and to fix them so they can have the same style than the other, thank you

Shakes : thank you , i`ll do a test with a tiner boat , me to it`s a long time that i wanted to do this kind of deep fish :)

Jaba 153 : thank you :)

Madlight_1988 : thank you:)

dawinky : thanks a lot:)

Grrrrrrr : thanks, just have a look at the beginning of my thread and you`ll see that in the final picture the boat will be on the water and the fish is after it :)

gardogg : thanks man, i`ll try to do my best for the fisherman, stitt thinking about his looking, i think about some old and weak fisher man with old and dirty cloth ....

gpepper : thanksss :)

TTn : xin chao , merci vieux cousin:) and viva vietnam!!!

10-21-2005, 10:34 AM
wicked fish!!

Rendering looks good,. a bit painting-ish in a good way,.

10-21-2005, 11:13 AM
Loving it all - theme, modeling , materials, light - looking forward to final image

10-21-2005, 11:58 AM

i didn`t have much time for work on tis picture but now it`ll be better , so here it is only a little test of the composition, still lot of work on the water and the sky and then begin the mod of this poor fisherman see you next time for a bigger updat

11-03-2005, 03:38 PM
Really cool stuff, this... if not IMPRESSIVE :D
The water does need some work, though. The waves appear a little to big. If they should be of that size, then make them rougher. All in all I think the water is too pool-like. Should be more of a stormy sea imho...

Good luck... this definetely has chances IMHO

11-03-2005, 09:10 PM
yeeeow! this is such a dramatic image! love the composition and lighting..very scary stuff! top work

11-04-2005, 04:22 AM
thank you , i agree with you for the water, i`m working on it, big waves will looks much better , i`ll add also some detail on the water like seaweath and some rock ....
:) :)

11-17-2005, 08:39 AM
Good idea! I really like it but I agree with Grrrrrrr; maybe you can work on the water surface to make it more realistic. I like the general feeling of your work!

11-17-2005, 01:08 PM
Gaetan, very good compo, waiting updates.

And good luck

11-17-2005, 01:53 PM
jajajajajajaaj...poor guy...he doesn't knows what is waiting for him...excellent work:thumbsup:

11-17-2005, 04:53 PM
A very dramatic composition indeed:thumbsup: , I like your awesome fish...good modeling. And the lighting and mood is great:) ...I'm curious to see the poor fisherman now...:bounce:

here it is a little update of the underwater part of my picture, i add some bubble and seaweed, played little bit also with the contrast,the final result of this part is almost done now

11-21-2005, 09:30 AM
Nice work, you did beautiful job on texturing and lighting...maybe the picture with the big fish has too much noise on it, that's all.
Keep it up!

11-21-2005, 01:25 PM
I have mist you thread for awhile and mist out completely on the character.

The fisherman is awesomely done.

Great work.

11-21-2005, 01:29 PM
eat your heart out nemo

11-21-2005, 06:35 PM
great update! that head is sensational- really fantastic expression,funny stuff! and great textures. as for the underwater image-love it already, but are those light rays a tiny bit strong?

11-21-2005, 06:47 PM
looks cool! :thumbsup:

11-21-2005, 10:53 PM
This is looking awesome.:thumbsup: I'm not sure about the plants though. I think it takes away from the size of the fish. I thought it was pretty close to perfect before the plants. Just a giant fish coming out of the darkness, to a tiny boat. Its up to you of course. Just a thought.


11-22-2005, 09:57 AM
agou : thank you, for the noise , i thought that for this part i need this noise because it`s underwater and the noise give the effect, particule and all the little stull in the water, mybe it`ll look better in the full composition

SONIC-X : thanks man, i was taking a little breack for a while but i`m back for finish it!!!

eddieellis : yeah i think so

shakes :i agree with you for the light ray, will reduce it a bit, thank you for the advice

(o)ne : thank you

detached : i`ll see, just i wanted to add some element at the front for give more persperctive to my picture , with the full composition we`ll keep the effect of ``giant`` monster cause of the size difference between the boat and the fish, anyway thanks for your advice man:cool:

11-22-2005, 01:47 PM
great concept... the final should be stunning.. nice work so far

11-22-2005, 06:27 PM
I really like the mood of your last posted image. the final one should be great!
Good luck.

11-22-2005, 06:47 PM

next update for my compositing, add some rain, sky little darker, and splash on the water, have still to work on the tree

12-04-2005, 01:39 PM
gaetan ..this is comin very well ..my suggestion is maybe the size of the image is too big.. i think u don't need so much sky maybe the half of that sky is enuff it can give more importance on that crazy huge fish...maybe but more darker the sky... in any case great work so far..u almost done! cheers jaba

12-04-2005, 03:35 PM
thank for your comment, i let the sky big for let some empty space in the picture, without this there is too much information everywhere and i lost some lisibility in the picture , for darker the sky you`re right i`m doing this and add some detail on it and on the trees
thank you and good luck for the result:thumbsup:

here it is the final picture,tell the story of a old and weak fisherman desesperate and is ready to do everything for getting some food, in went in a dangerous place for get some food but never expect such kind of meeting, i get something intersting on the line, it looks big so it mean lot of food for him but what he doesn`t know it`s that his catch will not bring him food but just his death....

12-04-2005, 05:31 PM
i finally with you:)
thank for the advice jaba:thumbsup:
looks better like tis i think

12-04-2005, 05:38 PM
