View Full Version : Animation : 'Destiny'

12 December 2002, 11:43 PM

I have finished a new animation.

You can find it here including the description:

It's 1min 25sec long.
The large version is 19mb
I've added a smaller version with 4.9mb for the people with slower connections (320x240,mono),
although the quality is not as good with several details not visible.

It's based on the character from this image and rendered in a similar style:

That's really nice. The only problem I have with it is the perspective. Perfect 3d perspective does not go well with peices like this.

The sketch effect was created with Final Toon for 3DS MAX. Check it out at Very impressive indeed.

Hey Steve. Cool to see the animation (have to d/l it yet). I once e-mailed you about making one, and you actually did! :)

12 December 2002, 11:35 PM
Seriously cool. :) You definitely get huge awards for unique style!

Where's the music from? it's great!

12 December 2002, 11:37 PM

Thanks everyone for the nice comments .

Here is a preview and a wireframe view from a part of the character.
The shapes were created with polygonal modelling.

Hey Steve!
I really dig that cool animation, what made you decide to go with the toon shading?:thumbsup:

12 December 2002, 05:13 AM
Woah! Thanks for the animation. It is about the coolest thing I have ever seen, very inspiring.

12 December 2002, 05:20 AM
All I can say is brilliant job! :beer:

did you use Max 5 with FinalRender (toon shader)?

Superb work- technically and artistically.

How would you rate FinalToon regarding ease of use and learning curve? An image of this calibre has me seriously considering the investment.

Cool cyborg concept:buttrock: Well rendered!

PS: whats compositing soft did you use for the anim? and what about the music?

12 December 2002, 02:40 PM
i luv the style...good shader...
keep up steve

12 December 2002, 03:44 PM
Tanks :)

Facial: Really nice use of shaders in your tests.

Alom: I used 3dsmax4.2 and finaltoon.

D. Phoenix: Personally I found it easy to use.


12 December 2002, 03:46 PM
thats a great rendering and model. reminds me a bit of AI. the only thing i would say is that the comp effects with the boxes and stuff although good ditract a bit from your lovely model/rendering. also is that final toon from final render?

12 December 2002, 09:10 PM
one word. WoW

the whole style was very entertaining to watch.

12 December 2002, 09:29 PM
