03-03-2006, 09:07 AM
Sweet an other South African, i will keep my eye here, good luck mate

03-10-2006, 09:42 AM
Have been so bussy with work that I have not had any time to come up with many ideas yet.

1.This woman/alien stands on a cliff next to her mighty all-terrain vehicle looking through a pair of binoculars at a ancient city in the far distance.Between her and this city there is big reveens and cliff and valley's that she has to cross to get to her destination.

So the treturess journy begins to the lost city.

Maybe not the best idea ever but it is all I have so far.

I'm going to do a sketch on the weekend for this.

Any crits wellcome.

03-10-2006, 10:51 AM
After a little bit this idea #1 started to turn in my mind a little and expanded a bit more.

So idea #1 Revised- Woman/alien standing next to her all terrain transport looking at a ruined lost city in front of her. She is getting ready to enter this city looking for an ancient relic.She is doing a scan with a scanner in her hands of the close vicinity for dangers.This is were the Journey begins in to the unknown.Who knows what dangers lay ahead,what dark evil force lurkes inside this perillis City of long ago.

I like this revision better,it has a bit more to it.

Will do the sketch on the weekend.

All crits are welcom.

03-13-2006, 04:05 PM
Hey Corrie !

Sounds really cool , can't wait to see a sketch to illustrate that idea !

cheers ,


03-14-2006, 05:40 AM
Thanks Zapan, I've been so busy of late that I have not had time to work on this.

But I have to make a plan,soon.

This is not the best of sketches I have ever done but I want to start modelling.
The female has a sidekick robot dog type animal thing which I want to ad aswell.The rest of the story stays the same as the last one.

I'm still deciding weather the ATV should have 4 or six wheel.The wheels are supposed to be over 2meters tall.

03-16-2006, 03:36 PM
Interesting concept , and good modeling so far:)

03-16-2006, 03:40 PM

Just a clay render to see what it looks like with some lighting.

03-20-2006, 02:21 PM
Nice one, this is looking ace! With some mud/grime on the tyres and body this will look ace. Good luck! :wip:

03-20-2006, 02:23 PM
Yeah... very good design... :wip: :beer:

03-20-2006, 02:46 PM
Excellent design for this futuristic vehicle ! I really like !
The rims exceed a little too much, but its right only one purely personal opinion :p

keep up this way ;)


03-20-2006, 04:07 PM
Seriously dig the ride man. Are you going to dirty it up a bit? Something this refined is not meant to keep clean...

03-21-2006, 01:22 AM
Novel way of attaching the fenders. I can't wait to see how you put the rest of the vehicle together. So far so good, I really like what I see.

03-21-2006, 01:25 AM
Hi there, the machine is looking very good! it would look even better when textures are there! :thumbsup:

03-22-2006, 07:48 AM

And it grows really fast !!

Gooooo Corrie !! :bounce: ... let's see if you can make it even faster :D !!

04-03-2006, 02:05 PM
Thanks ZAPAN,

I have been battling to find time to work on the challenge.There is just so much happinning right now that I can't keep up.

04-04-2006, 07:23 AM
Our offices have moved so in the middle of is me,trying to juggle the work to be done, organizing the workplace and working myself to death on this challenge. And yet at the end of the day I still haven't had time for a nice social action with meat on a grill. There's still hoping that someday rest will come. Sorry to hear that your time is so divided and hope you get to show us more of the good work.

04-04-2006, 07:58 AM
Me not having anough time is not so much a sosial thing,but more a work thing.There is so much projects comming in and I'm bussy the hole time and have to work over time to get all my work done and even then I can't get every thing finnished.I'm hoping things are going to settle down before the end of the challenge so that I have time to finnish.At the moment when I'm getting a little bit of off time I try to relax and spend it with my kids.

04-04-2006, 08:10 AM
Doing good Corrie! Sure hope you'll fiind the time to finish this like you want man!:) Good luck!
