My picture shows the problems met during the journey. That was my first concept sketch, but after looking the Chris Moss's entry ( http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=322619), I needed to find an other idea.
04-08-2006, 05:47 PM
This (ugly...!) new sketch is enougth different.
04-09-2006, 08:27 AM
Modeling with 3ds Max 8 before zbrush.
04-09-2006, 01:24 PM
First texture with Zbrush. It's very easy to work with this software!
04-09-2006, 02:06 PM
Nice model! Is a shame you had the same idea, but the new one is nice too..don't worry!!
04-09-2006, 03:37 PM
Thanks Centurionit! Have fun and Good luck with your beautiful fairies!
04-09-2006, 03:46 PM
The texturing really rocks, loving the swirly bits on the neck :)
Cant wait to see the whole thing textured!
04-09-2006, 03:52 PM
Cool, the new concept looks really nice!
Good luck with the rest of the journey, sorry to hear you had to swap concepts so late.
04-09-2006, 09:18 PM
Thanks all, I have big work with the ground of my picture...I hate that!!
04-10-2006, 02:23 PM
The model is just textured, I need to place dicplacement map with Mental Ray.
Your ideas are welcome!
04-11-2006, 08:34 AM
WIP, displacement with Mental ray.
04-11-2006, 03:44 PM
There are some problems with texture borders and displacement details...
04-12-2006, 03:01 PM
I'm trying to place objets in scene.
04-13-2006, 02:47 PM
turtle's skin on skeleton.

To have a more original theme, I will change a little my concept sketch.After the nauffrage of a tanker, babies tortoises find themselves on an emergency raft.
04-15-2006, 09:16 AM
The tortoises are placed one by one in their final position.
04-15-2006, 01:27 PM
I don't pass by a skeleton to give their position to each one of my tortoies.
It is not easy to give an expression to their body, the carapace is a big handicap!
04-15-2006, 07:55 PM
I answered you in mine Thread
04-17-2006, 08:37 AM
Without passing by a skeleton, I set up the torues in my scene.
04-18-2006, 08:22 AM
I position the tortoises according to the "Raft Of Meduse".
04-18-2006, 11:53 AM
hahaha.. funny motion! nice turttles too :D
04-18-2006, 06:47 PM
Thank you Ziriguidum, it's work you know these stupid positions!!!
04-19-2006, 06:04 PM
I almost finished some with the placement of my small monsters.
04-20-2006, 12:34 PM
I have only some modifications to be made to the tortoises. Then I will begin the design of the boat and to finish, that of the ocean. Then a work will come on textures and the lights.
The translator that I use is really rotted!!! :sad:
04-22-2006, 04:15 PM
Here my first tests of realization of an ocean. There must be scum and gasoline...
04-22-2006, 06:57 PM
Really like your latest raft concept! Very cool, different -- love the turtle models too, extremely well done. Looking forward to seeing more, good luck!
04-23-2006, 10:11 PM
Hi bellonte I Prefer much more your last concept..very nice, hope to see more early...Good luck..
04-24-2006, 10:24 AM
Thank you for your encouragements, I have difficulties to make a correct scum much there on the surface of water.
04-25-2006, 10:38 AM
The result of my work on scum is sufficient for the moment.
05-01-2006, 02:10 PM
My ocean and its scum with a layer of oil.
05-03-2006, 05:25 AM
Hey! Really like how this is progressing...hope you have time to finish the challenge, and, if not, at least finish the entry...it is very interesting. Very cerebral, important.
05-03-2006, 01:34 PM
Thank you for your encouragements oceanbluesky! I will finish my work time if I manage to make a realistic fabric!
05-04-2006, 04:11 PM
On this image, I build the raft according to the placement of my tortoises. it remains me to insert ropes and fabrics. Then I will have to work textures.
05-05-2006, 09:48 AM
The last image that I sent is fuzzy but it is not a desired effect... sorry!
05-06-2006, 03:16 PM
installation of elements of the decorations.
05-08-2006, 08:54 AM
I try to put dirtinesses on textures of the boards of my raft.
05-09-2006, 10:34 AM
First test of sky with a mixture of noises in 3dsmax.
05-13-2006, 06:45 PM
Me, I don't like the oil companies!
05-15-2006, 07:10 AM
Limed in oil, it ended up succumbing.
05-16-2006, 02:20 PM
It is a test of light for my tortoises.
05-17-2006, 06:57 PM
My image is almost completed. Now, criticisms will be the good come to finalize my work. Thank you in advance.
05-22-2006, 06:21 PM
Hello. I don't know if I sent the good pictures of my model... we have just to turn around and that this last does not have texture?
05-24-2006, 03:59 PM
My picture is made up of four layers.
05-27-2006, 04:07 PM
It is an image which shows the details of the modeling of my babies tortoises.
05-27-2006, 06:04 PM
After the shipwreck of a tanker, babies tortoises begin their journey towards...cleaner water. Far away, they see the chimney of a nuclear thermal power station which, it, does not pollute the oceans!
05-30-2006, 12:15 PM
At you the interesting and well made work. :thumbsup:
Ideas of ecological accidents presently are especially actual.
06-01-2006, 03:08 PM
It is true, for ecology, I am always revolted by the oil companies which earn money without respecting the environment.
07-01-2006, 10:21 AM
Thanks to all have followed my project and thanks to CGsociety for this very interesting contest.
