This is a concept which I have come up with while scribbling on my sketch book.I have roughly arranged my idea in words.

(rough description of my idea which would gradually become concrete.)

A squad of brave soldiers have taken up the task to fight against the alien weeds who are spreading their cyclopean arms thru the earth destroying whatever comes in their way. These weeds have arrived from the earths core.They cannot think,they don't have motives or mission .But they are spreading and causing huge destructions.They have fire inside their body.So new arms and ammunition were created to destroy them.The man who was leading this journey of certain death and who destroyed hundreds of monstrous weeds minimising their count on earth sensed that this is just the begining of the journey.There is something even worse to fight ahead.He was later called as the WEED-SLAYER.

03 March 2006, 04:45 PM
Wow this is a concept.


03 March 2006, 05:03 PM
Hi Rishikesh! Wow, that is a really strong concept you got going - looking forward to follow you once again :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 08:54 AM
I should be great ! Nice sketch Rishi ! :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 09:18 AM
Nice Sketch. Always a fun of gruesome fantasy/sci fi, I really dig the story. A suggestion though: It would be nice to turn it into an action centered image, instead of a posing one. How about introducing motion: the characters racing by with high speed in their vehicle, passing through the infested land, shooting at the weeds which are trying to get them. In the distance it seems that the land is more infested, so the journey just begins. This would steer the theme towards the journey and the mission of the challenge.
However that is just a suggestion. I already like the concept sketch as is.

03 March 2006, 09:21 AM
Hi there,

this is a very nice sketch you have there. I like the fact that you are not going mainstream on this one, but you create something that you feel has a strong message. THe obvious thing to make was a lanscape with some people embarging on a journey, "Just like mine" but this is something else and it makes me rethink my own concept skecthes.

Iam looking forward to see what you can get out of this one... :)


03 March 2006, 02:59 PM
thanks larsgehrt,a-papantoniou,pepper for your suggestions which would definitely help me make my concept more concrete.:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 06:14 PM
I am a little too busy with my office work, so even when I wanted to work on updates I couldn't.I got some time to write this.Expect my update very soon.till then best of luck to every participant.:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 08:36 AM (

got some time to start modeling.

03 March 2006, 01:38 PM
It's a very cool picture and idea but I think you may need to work on it more so it looks like a jounery.

03 March 2006, 01:59 PM
Hey Rishikesh.

Definitely a nice story and sketch:thumbsup: . The head model is coming along great as well but I do agree with bkeiser3d , I think the journey part of the image could be stronger.

03 March 2006, 02:52 PM
Yup ..head topology looks nice...Humble thought now...i always look on those things 'cuase i usually make tha same mistake....lower lips corners at the same point left and right as the upper..when...most odf the times(or u can say normally) in human...lower lip corners are a bit inwards on the horizontal if they going in the mouth...i hope i make sence...

Love the clean way u model..:)

03 March 2006, 03:28 PM
yep! nice mesh on the head model!
ear looks great!
can't wait for more.. :D ;)

03 March 2006, 03:51 PM
