"Every 1 must have attention frm thz guy"
I'm sure that u mean "No 1 ...........":)
thanks friend
mmmm ... how about sharing this challenge power ?;)

mmm here is the concept ..
I'm thinking of a direct idea ..
it's about some one who likes to travel ... he writs about his journeys looking for adventure , interest , something like journey literature artist ,. he is begining a new journey .. writing about what he had seen in the
previous one ...
this animal is his buddy :)..

the sketch shows the concept only .. there would be a character ... and buildings in the background , some mountains . etc .

03-10-2006, 03:53 PM
The next step will be showing the skeches of the whole scene .
then the sketches of each part of the scene ..

GOOD LUCK everyone

mmm hi again ..
this is the sketch of the animal .. it's a mix of some animals ...
hope to be able to model it as it's in my mind ..
i don't know yet wheather I will be able to make the hair or not ... but I'll try ..

GOOD LUCk everybody

looks cute,
it needs something to balance its head weight, a tail maybe, but i know the design isnt finished yet,
good luck my friend,
keep it up..

03-10-2006, 09:54 PM
It will be balanced with the 800lbs of crap on its back... uh Great Concept, Definately says big Journey!

What is this creature... I need two for my challenge..

Hello Mahmoud, very nice sketch, I think its going to be fun to watch it transformed in 3D, I hope to see more sketches like this one, for the rest of the environmet too..

good luck

Hany :
my friend , i'm happy to see you here .
thanks . u r right . i'm trying to balance it's weight by making the back heaver and bigger than the front .. also i may make his tail taller ... thanks friend .

thanks very much my friend
the creature is a mix of many animals :) ... it has a nose,eyes of horse , a body of a bird or some thing like that .
good luck

hi nakary . thanks very much .. i'll do my best hope u enjoy this challenge .
good luck :)

03-11-2006, 07:22 AM
Hi! Really amazing creature. Shouldn't it have a little bit longer tail for balance? Good luck!!

03-11-2006, 04:03 PM (

hi this is more illustration to my concept ... the next will be coloured .
need your opinion ..

03-11-2006, 04:06 PM
thank you v much .. yes it's tail needs to be more longer ..

03-11-2006, 04:20 PM
oddly i would suggest u to stay in the ambiance of the last rough. background in dark and characters only in edges suggest PoP world or an dark egyptian work where the character goes off.

03-11-2006, 04:26 PM
Nice concept!
About the animal, maybe it should have bigger legs, they seem kind of small for his body and all that extra weight.

03-11-2006, 05:00 PM
nice concpet I agree with Kender

03-12-2006, 12:39 AM
