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.

03-01-2006, 06:02 PM

Calls for a sketch..

03-02-2006, 12:27 PM
YEAH...no 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...;)

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

03-08-2006, 07:44 PM

03-08-2006, 08:23 PM
hehe, joyfull little fella...and yeah, that actually sounds like an odd material combination...it 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

03-09-2006, 09:54 PM

the head is almost done, just need a bit teaking touches around the mouth aread and smoothing the head. also fix the nose and the brow!

03-10-2006, 07:27 AM
Very nice, Hamid, you are close to your original sketch idea. I Like his face, and look forward to you, putting even more expression into it.

03-10-2006, 07:44 AM

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!

05-07-2006, 10:28 PM
Hurry up my friend! :thumbsup:

05-07-2006, 10:47 PM

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