An idea for the concept :)

The little stick man up in the old tree house, on the tree at the edge of the world decided his life was a little boring and started out to explore the rest of the world.

03 March 2006, 06:02 PM like that idea...

Calls for a sketch..

03 March 2006, 12:27 PM more moderation, which means Im here to support you, all the way!!!
Need som visuals for the concept, to fully get your idea.....

I might join in myself, but it depends on a lot of factors, and only time will show...;)

03 March 2006, 02:00 PM
This challenge seems perfect for your style. We're all expecting great things!
I hope you work well under pressure.

03 March 2006, 07:35 PM (

03 March 2006, 08:23 PM
hehe, joyfull little fella...and yeah, that actually sounds like an odd material reminds me of another cg-talker, and his choises of materials...Michael Madic. Always a lot of metal, leather and fur going on in his threads:D

03 March 2006, 09:54 PM

04 April 2006, 08:00 AM
so, my friend? Miss some updates:)

04 April 2006, 07:54 AM
Very amusing character! I like it!

05 May 2006, 08:52 PM (

the curiouse boxman and his two friends were a bit bored with there regular shapes world and sets out to explore and discovers a pathway to a mysterious irregular shapes world. hence a new journey begins for them.

i have been away form the competition for ages. and now have some time and thought i'll continue with a simpler concept . the irregular shapes world is the foreground ( i will make it irregular hehehe) and the regular shapes world is behind the circle gate.


thanks for the comments guys!

05 May 2006, 10:28 PM
Hurry up my friend! :thumbsup:

05 May 2006, 10:47 PM
Go on fellow! Your concept and images are great !I really like it !

05 May 2006, 06:01 AM
Hey there! Finally you're back on this - good luck, the new concept looks good. You can make it in time! :bounce:

05 May 2006, 10:21 PM (

adding some details to the foreground. simple banana trees and a statue that looks like the character.

05 May 2006, 12:38 AM
Wow! great addition. If each update is that cool from here on you're going to pull together a beauty!

05 May 2006, 11:11 AM

05 May 2006, 03:44 PM
