Hi everyone, let's introduce myself.. my name is Cédric Lavanche, i'm 3D animator and this is my first attempt here, i hope to finish it :)

My idea...:lightbulb the story occurs in a fantasy world where living small bugs ( i don't know the name of the race for the moment... :blush: ). This bugs lived in a small village lost in the "magic" forest... but one day the village was destroyed but their enemy... The war was terrible and only 3 bugs to escape the masssacre cuz' they drive out to find some foods. When they discover them village, they decided to find a another place to create a new village...

I hope you will like my idea...

Good luck everybody :thumbsup:

03-01-2006, 03:24 PM
lol very cool idea can wait to see it finished :thumbsup:

03-01-2006, 03:28 PM
Thanks you the best... i'm glad to see that you like it :scream:

I really hope to find the time to finish it :D

03-01-2006, 03:38 PM
bah faut tout péter mon gars ! Bienvenue !

03-01-2006, 03:52 PM
Hey hey thanks Gilles, i'm glad to see you here :scream:

On va essayer de tout péter :buttrock:

03-01-2006, 03:54 PM
Cool idea and good luck :)
J'aime ton style et je doute pas que tu vas encore déchirer ;)


03-01-2006, 05:04 PM (

My first step with the composition...
On the image we will see the first bug on the left walking, the second driving the big mounting (probably looks like the "pétaure" of Lanfeust) and the last is crying on the head of the mounting...

In the background we will see the burning village.. finaly they don't live in the forest... cuz' i hate painting tree ;)

Hope u like it

03-01-2006, 05:56 PM
yoyoyoyo my friend !!

Glad you finally jump into one of those !
Great start already , seems we both like to burn people's place ! :scream:

I'm thinkinng about making a snail for the mounting what do you think about? :shrug:

Lemog--> nice to see you here.. i'm glad to see thats you like it and thanks for your comments...:thumbsup:

makaron--> I hope it will be fun to follow this WIP :scream:

03-02-2006, 11:32 AM
I'm thinkinng about making a snail for the mounting what do you think about?

What the hell is that ?!?! :surprised :scream:

Great characters my friend , hilarious as well !

Keep it up ! :applause:

cheers ,


03-02-2006, 04:52 PM
I like your character design and concept. Its cute and innovative.
By your description alone i can already see the finished peice.
I've subscribed so i dont miss out on the action in this thread.

A snail hmm? Sounds like a good idea, by the look of your sketch i was thinking along the lines of like some weird dung beetle or something. But to keep the humorus, almost childish look to it. I think a snail is perfect.
Good luck

03-03-2006, 12:55 AM
I would love to see a dung beetle 'for the mounting!' :D

I really like your concept for the driver, it's a strong design. I think your background could be a bit more epic though. :)

03-03-2006, 01:14 AM
haha! what a pair of cool little bug fellows :D nice work so far Lavanche, and nice to meet u!

03-03-2006, 03:04 AM
Their cute little buggers!:thumbsup:

03-03-2006, 09:46 AM (

This is the evolution of the walker's design... hope u will like it...

I forget to say thats.. for the design of the first character i was really inspired by osgiliath ( but i little to much... the goal was not to "steal" the design of osgiliath so i will change the character of the driver to avoid some others problems...

03-03-2006, 09:51 AM
Zapan--> a snail it's a great idea no?? muahahahahahaahahaha... and i will call it Zap'man...:scream:

Kahlan Amnell--> nice to see thats you like the idea... wait and see.. :rolleyes:

paperclip--> hey hey it's a chance thats you like the driver because i will change the driver :sad:

Climax--> nice to meet you too :thumbsup: i will keep an eye on your work...

rblitz7--> tks u

03-03-2006, 10:12 AM
Bastard !! :scream:

The little bug is cracking me up : "On the road again" ... Is that the only sentence you can say in english ? :twisted: :scream: ....

Keep it up bro !

cheers ,


03-03-2006, 10:14 AM
Cool !
Je le vois bien dire : duuuude !!!

03-03-2006, 10:25 AM
On dirait un vieux mec qui vient de rempiler pour son 12736ème challenge sur CgTalk... :scream:


Seriously... perfect style for this bug... I really like... peurfaicteux :thumbsup:

03-03-2006, 11:28 AM
Magnifique :thumbsup:

Good luck to you :bounce:

03-03-2006, 11:42 AM

Zapan--> Muahahahahahahahahaha me too i love u my friend... but more i spend time here and more i think thats the snail is a good idea... i can say many other things... ggggrrrrrrrr... i hate you...
Elendil--> mdr... and the other will say Swwwweeeeeeetttttttt :buttrock: (I love this movie mdr) I will call my image "Hey Dude, Where is my snail?" :scream: ... hey why not... great idea... :)

Lemog--> Muahahahahaha...:scream: thanks Laurent for the great words...i'm not like this bug this is only my first challenge i hope to finish it :thumbsup:

Nomad--> i'm a little busy a this time but at first time i think about make it in 3D... next time why not!! Thanks to come here

03-03-2006, 05:40 PM
Hey Poonks.

I really enjoyed your new secondary sketch.
Just looking at it made me laugh. I can truely see the comedic side to this peice.
Cant wait to see some color WIP's

My advice... I like your snail idea, I'm with you on that. But draw out both of them anyway and lets see what you come up with. You never know, it may sway your mind.

03-04-2006, 06:51 PM
Ha, cool characters! Great concept drawings! Keep it up!

03-04-2006, 07:04 PM
nice start, poonks


03-04-2006, 07:22 PM

03-05-2006, 11:34 AM
cool bug! keep going!:)

03-06-2006, 08:21 AM
Définie encore mieu les membres, le dos, que tu puisse ensuite le mettre dans toutes le postition voulu. La, j'ai un peu l'impression que tu ne sais pas trop comment changer sa postition. Amuse toi avec ce personnage. Fait le vivre, donne lui des expressions.

Continue :)

03-06-2006, 09:43 AM (

Next step...

The crying bug...

Finaly I don't think to put him on the head of the snail. He will walk near the old bug ;)

Nice pic! So funny characters! I'm waiting for colouring!

03-30-2006, 02:29 PM
Well hello Poonks.

An interesting image youre making here, however, I dont know if it is your purpose, but when iI look at your recent made sky, the form of the colors remind me of looking an "oil on canvas" image. Thats a good thing for me but i would recommend if you do the same with the clouds, that at this point seem to be "over the image". I expect to see more work. Good luck on you first challenge. Its also my first.

03-30-2006, 07:50 PM
Wheeeee heeee I see colors !!!

Great start on the sky , maybe I would have seen it a little more reddish tho ...

So this is it , the serious stuff's starting !! Rock 'n roll baby ...
just put Slipknot on you ears and goooo :buttrock:

cya my friend !!

cheers ,


03-30-2006, 09:28 PM (

Working on the sky and the clouds.. i decide to change the clouds cuz' i didn't find it in the same way than the sky

03-30-2006, 09:34 PM
Thanks you everybody, i'm glad to see you like the start, i hope to follow this way :scream:

Zapan--> i'm agree with you dude thats why i follow your advice :bounce:
Muahahaha slipknot is everytime on my ears, U know me!! :thumbsup:

Tigrenka--> nice to see you like it thanks you!

Elendil_le_Grand--> Quick... Muahahahahaha and you... stop oblivion and finish your thread :twisted:

Lemog--> hey hey you right, i know it's not usual to start whith the sky but i think it's easy to find an atmosphere with this method

thebest, makaron--> agian and again thanks you so much to follow my wip and for the great words.. :thumbsup:

matsuyam (> thanks you so much for your comment, i had the same feelings than you about the clouds tht's why i deicded to change it, hope you will like it more like this
I wish you a good luck too for your challenge!:beer:

03-31-2006, 04:21 AM
Not usual... but well done... terribly "photgraphic" now... and more... :thumbsup:

03-31-2006, 05:00 AM
me like the new sky... :thumbsup:

gives the image a calm feeling that will suit this maybe not too speedy fellows...

03-31-2006, 07:10 AM
Yes you're right ...
The new sky is good buit the clouds in the first was more cartoon i don't knof if i've prefered or not
Anyway it's a good job :thumbsup:

03-31-2006, 07:17 AM
Fun image! I look forward to seeing more

Hop hop hop update of the day...

2h30 of working on the moutain makes me crazy! I don't think thats 2D works is so long and so difficult... this is my first real attempt with photoshop thats why i am so slow :)

I am learning many many things with this challenge, i just hope to finish it :(

04-11-2006, 07:21 PM
Hi there - good to see you back on this!
Nice update - I think it's the beginning of a beautiful mountain!... it looks almost like 3d, nice job :)

04-11-2006, 09:29 PM
Dammit I was up to come by here with a snail comment but there you go !

Awesome my friend ... looking really detailled !! what resolution are you working with ?

cheers ,

-Zap ... huhu ^^

04-12-2006, 03:59 AM
Hello again Poonks.

I see you`ve been working. Quite a demonstration that mountain of yours, its a great piece. I supose that after this, you`ll be able to get past your struggle with photoshop. I think all of us are constantly learning. Hope to see that level of work in the snail and bug chatacters.

Really a good work.

Read you later.

04-12-2006, 10:12 AM
sorry to hear that u have been ill but I happy that u feel fine now :scream:
