This is my first sketch in wich I describe the ambientation of my scene "Exodus". The idea is based in the greatest everknown men's journey - the exit of sons of Israel from egypt. Focusing in the "Red Sea", the scene is transposed to the insect's world with a lake travessy to achive their objective.
The water opens and the obstacles are won on the way to a better place.
03-07-2006, 02:46 PM
My second sketch shows more details of the scene with the presence of a crowd of bugs crossing the water of the lake which opens in front of them.

First studies of concepts of some characters. The responsability is to show all the diferent characteristics of each character inside the scene.
03-07-2006, 03:04 PM
He guides the crowd through the rising obstacles.
03-07-2006, 03:09 PM
Even the strongest become weak and dependent

03-08-2006, 07:58 PM
Really nice concept!... Exodus... really a serious candidate to be a breathless final image!
03-09-2006, 01:52 PM
Lots of stuff still can change, but this color studies already shows a little of the atmosphere of my scene.
03-09-2006, 02:09 PM
I almost can imagine where it all will ends!

03-09-2006, 05:32 PM
A long walk begins with the first step. Even if you have alot of legs.

Nice start. I was not so sure about the model when it was not posed but now that I see it posed I think it works well. If you continue in this style I think this piece will be sucessful. :)
03-11-2006, 08:59 PM
Thanks Andrew, I also believe in this.
03-11-2006, 09:32 PM
Dude I liked the alone model I expect that going it place the phases of the creation , and keep going.
best regards man!

After the modeling of all components of this character, I´ll still spend some time for teaks and refinements. But I´ll make some comments about this stage. Modeling is all subdivided polys and edge extrusions. Eeverything but the eyes, witch are NURBS.
To put the character on the final pose, I didn´t see the need of creating a skeleton and skinning the mesh.
I just parented all body parts in an hierachy way and move the pivot to its new location, matching the articulations. This way is easier and quicker to reach the final pose.
