View Full Version : "Whoops!!!" - Hero - DaveW

03 March 2003, 12:15 AM
I hope I have enough free time for this!

The basic storylin is this: Our hero, Mister Chill-Out, is battling one of the minions of his arch-nemesis, Arch-Nemesis. The bad-guy picks up a large boulder to throw at Mister Chill-Out, who shouts "Now! Now I will show you my power!" and uses his freeze-blast to freeze his surroundings (and the evil minion) into solid ice. As our hero smugly steps forward to leisurely dispose of his foe, he slips and falls on his bum.

Sketches and storyboards coming soon.

I like the idea you should use arch nemesis as the antagonist.

Good luck!!!!

Maybe I will...I was thinking of expanding the concept after the challenge is over, maybe make several episodes. The idea was to make Arch-Nemesis the brains of the operation and he has a few dumb minions who do his bidding.

Here is one of my poor sketches of Mister Chill-out. I didn't know what to do with the mask when I drew it so I just gave it a squiggly shape, but now I think I'm going to make it snowflake shaped. I'll see what it looks like modeled. One unfortunate side-effect of Mister Chill-out's amazing powers is that he's always very cold, hence the ski-cap, mittens, scarf, and sorel boots. And since we all know what happens to guys in cold weather, he has opted for boxers instead of briefs :)

getting started on the badguy. i'll probably use a slimmer version of the same cage as a base for mister chill-out.

Finished the badguy and working on our hero. I added a belt buckle since this screenshot was taken.

And a gratuitous butt-shot :)

Wasn't happy with my first concept for Mister Chill-out so here's another:

Time is running out, I've been too busy this month. But I have managed to get both characters rigged and basic 3 point lighting, hoping to have enough time this week to block out the animation.

And here's the badguy; one of my coworkers complimented me on the nipples I hope you guys find them as appealing :)

04 April 2003, 06:36 AM
oooh pointy nipples a definite sign of evil... :p

great model.


04 April 2003, 10:00 PM
Well the good-guy has pointy nipples too, but he's always cold :)

04 April 2003, 04:07 AM
I really like the model. Great work!:scream:

04 April 2003, 10:46 PM
Well there's no way I'm going to be able to finish this on time. Maybe I should try entering more contests, it seems whenever I do, the work starts pouring in :)

On the bright side, this means I can have the camera cuts I wanted and I can redo the voiceover. I didn't like any of the provided voices. I'll be posting any updates to the gallery section.

Good luck to everyone else, I can't wait to see all the finished entries!
