First research.

03 March 2006, 08:13 PM (

I'm doing some color style to study the contrast scene in a fridge.

03 March 2006, 08:25 PM (

A little details

03 March 2006, 08:46 PM
Hey matwire ,

cool sketch !
What's the journey ?
Like to read about your thoughts on this , and i wish you loads of fun :bounce:

03 March 2006, 09:56 PM
I also didn't understand your concept of 'Journey'...

May be add some more explicit éléments...

03 March 2006, 10:00 PM
This doesn´t represent a journey... Try to make another sketch... Just a friendly advise! :wip:

03 March 2006, 09:13 AM
The journey is about a bug which is made surprised to eat in a frigot when a person opens it.
I think i don't understood the concept very well ?

03 March 2006, 11:55 AM
I think it's not in the subject but the draw is cool ;)

03 March 2006, 05:32 PM (

Here I made a new sketch.
Here It's the first day of a little turtle luth.

03 March 2006, 06:03 PM
Yes, this one is better :)
I like the angle and the lighting in the sketch

03 March 2006, 07:05 PM
I like your last sketch concept. I see you like "frozen" places as location. The lat one looks very nice and scary at the same time. That is a very dangerous journey.

03 March 2006, 07:12 PM (

More details....

03 March 2006, 09:06 PM (

I doing anything sketches based on image references, and apply some color test.
I hope you like it.

03 March 2006, 09:11 PM
Definitely like the sketch with the turtle. Keep it up!

03 March 2006, 09:14 PM
Yes look good!

03 March 2006, 01:25 PM

03 March 2006, 02:21 PM
I like the turtle too.

03 March 2006, 05:16 PM
Looking through the challenge I was drawn to your turtle! It looks great, I'm loving the other sketches as well.

Looking forward to following your work!

First I do a basic model in maya.

03 March 2006, 09:12 PM (

I doing a model with multi sets, to work then in Zbrush.

03 March 2006, 09:14 PM (

I'm doing this model with some books reference help.

03 March 2006, 12:39 AM
Great model- somehow it makes me think about this funny aussie turtles from "Finding Nemo". Got to love your modeling.

03 March 2006, 03:45 AM
definitely like this new 'turtle' idea! Much improved over the bug in the fridge thing...really nice modeling too...looking forward to following your work, Good Luck!

03 March 2006, 03:47 AM

03 March 2006, 11:43 AM
Thank you all, I would post the wires later.

03 March 2006, 12:02 PM (

03 March 2006, 12:22 PM

03 March 2006, 04:20 PM

03 March 2006, 07:51 PM (

Here a simple coral research.

03 March 2006, 07:52 PM
Nice colors:)

03 March 2006, 11:03 PM
Ton travail est de très bonne qualité, continue comme ca !
It's a work of quality.

03 March 2006, 05:25 PM (

Here some studies of environement of my scene.

Thank you has all for your answers.

03 March 2006, 05:36 PM
I like this, it free flowing and organic, and your zbrushing is superb. Its just trying to keep the seabed interesting with out it being overpowering in detail which would be the hard part I think. Not to mention the water’s surface and light refraction. Good work I’ll be back to check it out again in the future

03 March 2006, 06:04 PM
Ce serait pas mal une ambiance style la pub de Club Med :)

03 March 2006, 08:15 AM
Tes dessins sont vraiment bons ;)

03 March 2006, 02:20 PM
You know what's so cool about underwater scenes
They are always breathtaking and there are so many ways to make the scene look interesting

Really nice plants!
That will hit the spot :)
Can't wait to see the finished scene
Good progress Mathieu :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 10:34 AM (

Here I remake the typology of my model using a color map which I've drawing my new wire.

03 March 2006, 11:02 AM (

I rebuilt my model because I had some problems of displacement at the render time. I will make a bump map to finish details and do the color map after.

I hope you like this ;)

03 March 2006, 11:15 AM (

Some render...

03 March 2006, 11:31 AM (

Another render and wire view.
