Yes, I do have something in mind my friend ...

Concept story:

"" The faeries are in danger.

A sacred stone kept in their kindom has been stolen by a wizard.

3 of them are designed to save their world: Lily, Iris and Dahlia.
They have to find a blue magic stone and bring back a fragment of this one.
Numerous dangers are out there and they are anxious.
Our heroins wait for the dusk to begin their journey... ""


By the way, Linux was the responsible for the crash, NOT windows :p

04 April 2006, 05:43 PM

Sounds like a good concept - you can fill it with lots of emotion I think - so, now - gogogogo!

Naa, I definitly droped Linux :shrug: . At least Windows is stable on my machine and allways up to date (Bill, you can send the check to me now!). For the Characters, only one with different expressions and different colors.
I plan a realistic style and a great perspective setup . I will probaby use differnet soft for the characters, the scene, and the backround.

In fact, my first reference was off course the "star" of the fayries : Tinkerbell

And I thought for her wings to be more dynamic visually if I gave them the drangonfly type of wings ... I think it's more proportionate, no?

Lemog, Gunnie, Zapan: Thanks my friends. Right now my machine is stuck on the calculation of the backround (mountains and sky) but it is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnggg:shrug: .

I have increase the resolution of the fairy and found some nice textures for the wings. I also design a suit for them (yes Gunilla, she will have something on!) and some accessories.
So, next step: modeling of the accessories and suits, modeling of the backround N°2: hills and forest, modeling of the environment: tree branches, leaves, grass and foreground, texuring, lighting, ... etc.
Loooots of work to do . Hope I'm gonna make it :D

Stayyyyy tune guys, next is going to be great !:buttrock:

Lemog
04 April 2006, 10:38 AM
That give us a good idea about the mood and the background... just my feeling now... takke care wih background mountains too much colored... maybe this violet is too much hard, especially too much contrast of color with with parts before. Usually, far details are too so much contrasted...

I'm curious to discover what kind of lighting will be here for fairies... with this sun, not easy to have a good light and contrast for the main subject, not ? or maybe that will be some glowy fairies... the lightened nudity then... :scream:

I'm sure you have planed something like that... a good solution... I'm waiting in peace :applause:

@ Lemog : Yes "Grand Stroumph", you are right about the mountains ... wip, wip ... I haven't fade them yet, I'll do it ! promise !
For the flying cuties, I am thinking of something indeed. I mentionned that they were waiting for the sun to get down, but tey are still near the village and they will be lit from it. Nice and smooth orange and blue lights.
What would remain uncovered of them will enlight the rest of the picture for sure !:bounce:

Hi there,

It's a wonderful landscape indeed. I wonder how you did it.
Did you use any other software to generate the polygon? or what?

scootermaya
04 April 2006, 07:56 PM
Thanks AsKham. I really apreciate your kind words.:love:
Yes my friend, my regular soft is Maya, but I did use Terragen, also as a free software that you may try as well !
I think it is a good alternative for landscape.
After that, as my master says "compositing is your friend*" :wise:

For the clothes, I'm thinking of a texture half leather/half leaves , something natural.

On the side, I will add a few features such as bag , knife (or a bow and arrows). Then I will try a wings movement to get a blurr (otherwise Photoshop).
Stay on guys !

Ohh, she's looking very nice in in her new dress! I especially like the front view - somehow the back seems a bit complicated for a fairy ... I imagine something really simply cut and translucent.
But I was wrong about the pointy ears so don't listen to me :D

Hey girls !

@ Mona : thank you for your appreciation , and you're right, I'm too serious here, it's about time I do some PORTENAOIK posts ! :buttrock:

@ Gunnie : Hi there ! I happy you like the front , I'm not happy you don't like the back :D .
Actually, I was trying a mix of something cute and a tinny bit fancy at the same time ... I hope it's not to much. We'll see with the next image (textures on).
About the ears, you had a point (no word game here) but as for the dress, I'm having my artistic crisis, and I wanted to mix styles and legends. Again, I hope I'm not doing too much.

I will try too post another one tonight but it is going to be difficult; Kids on vacation, bicycle race "Liege/Bastogne/Liege" just in front ofthe house! + regular work to finish ... arrrggghhhhh:banghead:

Hi nice wings. I think that if the fairies are to be the main part of your piece, then you ought to work a little harder on giving them a believable anatomy. Most notably the feet look very flat around the ankles, but the hands, upper arms and hip area also seems to need a little work...of course you might be planning to do this later...
