The render with scenery looks really good. If I should put my finger on something, it would be the way her arms flex. Doesn't go over quite well IMO.

Other than that it looks splendid :bounce:

03-15-2003, 05:46 PM
really nice. looks very fluid and the model is very efficient. nice hair too.
I have to agree on the arms though. the way they fold is a bit odd.
still, beautiful model.

03-15-2003, 05:56 PM
thanks a lot for all your nice comments.

I absolutely have to agree, regarding the arm issue. The render is from a test sequence and amy`s body wasnt finished yet, as we can see :)
I forgott to mention that.

anyway , its the only rendered sequence with Amy, so I wanted to share it.


03-15-2003, 05:57 PM
very nice model i like it a lot. it would be sweet to see this one animated.

03-15-2003, 06:58 PM

03-15-2003, 07:03 PM
Great! really nice modelling, yeah I think the elbow joint needs a tweak.

Really nice stuff!

03-15-2003, 07:05 PM
wow! great model, looks so "alive"

03-15-2003, 07:09 PM

full of character

great job :thumbsup:

03-15-2003, 08:46 PM
OOOO :eek: This is soooo sweet.

Beautiful mesh.....

03-15-2003, 08:56 PM
good stuff man, I really like it. You mentioned you guys were gonna use paint effects, if so how were you guys gonna tackle reflections.

03-15-2003, 09:05 PM
Great Stuff, keep it coming. I especially like the braid in her hair.

The eyebrow how did you do them they dont look like a piece of the head mesh

Keep it coming! :applause: :applause:

03-15-2003, 09:07 PM
Do You have more shots of her? She's so cute...:thumbsup: :love:

03-15-2003, 09:50 PM

nice lighting i like the stylw fo this character.

03-15-2003, 10:23 PM
So cute! Very excellent work!

Is she in the middle of saying something? If so, what?

03-15-2003, 10:40 PM

03-15-2003, 10:57 PM
she's beautiful... animation coming? :buttrock:

03-15-2003, 10:58 PM
Looks very good........hurry up and finish your website! :D :)

03-15-2003, 11:02 PM
Oh Boy...wireframe, shaded and render is my favorite CGI Images right now. And the character is really cute. What happened that the project was shut down? I wish it didn't happened, maybe it could be a very interesting movie.

03-15-2003, 11:31 PM
thats so freaky impressive man ~'''' if i look at my work after watching urs i get really sick@.@

03-15-2003, 11:33 PM
reminds me of a young alice from 'American McGees Alice'

Its a awesome model. I just love it!

03-15-2003, 11:48 PM
A good friend of mine worked on that project at TripleE with you guys, Noah Peterson. He showed me some of the work after the project shut down...WOW! All I could say was wow!. The scenes were magnificant. The witch, boy and girl are all awesome. The animation that Andy accomplished was impressive as well. It sucks that the project went under because it looked very promising and I was close to coming over there as well had the project continued. You have a great talent there and the girl rocks. Peace.


p.s. Noah showed me this video of the guy that came to work naked because noone beleived that he would. Funny Stuff. Laughed my ass off.:airguitar

03-15-2003, 11:50 PM
I really love the hair...makes me want to open Maya and model some myself. Good flow. Nice work.

03-16-2003, 12:01 AM
I really like the model. The flowery render looks like something out of Shrek.


03-16-2003, 12:05 AM
Great work, the modeling is very clean. Very nice with the modeled hair. She does appear to have a lot of life, too bad the project was killed.

03-16-2003, 12:22 AM
very childish - very innocent - very good !!

03-16-2003, 01:13 AM
wow great work!

So cute! :drool:

03-16-2003, 01:56 AM
Wow, everything is quite amazing, the proportions, the texture, and the hair. Especially the hair since you chose to model it :thumbsup:
Superb work

03-16-2003, 01:57 AM
hi there, well done on your work, its a very nice model, and really nice detail on the hair well done

03-16-2003, 02:40 AM
Very interesting character!I like her coiffure:)!

03-16-2003, 03:38 AM
Very Nice Character,
And Amy is very good Character for child :applause: :thumbsup:

03-16-2003, 03:50 AM
wonderfully cute!

03-16-2003, 04:23 AM
fantastic modeling. That hair must have take forever and a day to finish.
Do you have any animated samples?

Great work, can't wait to see more:buttrock:

03-16-2003, 04:50 AM
she looks pretty she would bite your head off if you said one thing wrong with her...

good job.

03-16-2003, 05:01 AM
Like Bishop, I am friends with Noah and saw some of the work. As I watched it, I was definately in awe at the look of it all. WONDERFUL job to all of you. I really liked the little girl. She was definately my favorite out of the group of them. Awesome job. Though I, however, didn't see the footage of the naked co-worker...not sure I want to. :) Great job.

03-16-2003, 05:48 AM
i love the look she has in the render great pose and great model :thumbsup:

03-16-2003, 06:21 AM
hi flo...
suuuperb arbeit was du da geleistet hast...
was ist nun mit der production ?
habe gerucht gehort das ein firma in babelsberg .. es ubernehmen solte.. es sind vieleicht aber nur gerucht ?

humm.. ich war glucklish genug um ein trailler und ein paar produktion video zu sehen.. und muss sagen das ich sehr angehenm uberasht gewesen bin ...zu sehen das so ein qualitativ product aus deutchland kamm...

aber noch ein mal ... genial modelling simple.. und effective..
bravo !!! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

03-16-2003, 06:29 AM
Astonishing! Great style, lovely execution and just overall excellent. I dig the render, been a fan of these types of renders since Anibyte's days. I have to ask how long did it take to render this with Maya? and is it the native renderer?

thanks so much for all your replys guys ! ... I really appreciate it.

@trevlb > I started with a cube , sculpted the rough shape and started adding lines and detail. It was a very exciting day to model the hair ....especially when I had to do hair for all the other characters, too.

@Jozvex & jah > yes, It`s a still from my demoReel. I`ll post some anims (done by some great coworkers) soon.

@xynaria > I will ....I will try to do ... soon

@Pinionist >It was shut down because of money issues .... that was my 2nd project in a row, that was shut down after 6-9 month of production. that`s germany :)

@BishopLynx > thanks. hehe ...the naked animator ...that`s david. he`s an awesome character and a good friend. He`s just amazing and I enjoyed working with him very much.

@xtrm3d > merci beaucoup, christophe. The project was called `tamanana`. There are some rumors but thats just rumors. thanks for your comment.

@lildragon > WOW !!!! thanks a lot dude ! You made my day .... my own CGtalk award :)
Rendering this character didnt took too long, though I cant remember certain numbers. Its all done in maya :)
I`ll send you a larger picture right away.

as I told you, the production stopped after some month, so I dont have much footage of Amy to show.
Anyway, here is another wire and a picture of her brother , Lucas (he`s a little fatty).
I`m just rendering for my demoReel , so I`ll post all the characters I did soon.
thanks again,

03-16-2003, 12:04 PM
wow thats a beautiful style you have there, very inspiring!


03-16-2003, 12:25 PM
F*cking good.

Great style, sweet proportions, pretty clean geometry...

Only one comment, the drappery looks too flat, i think it needs more wrinkles .

PLEASE a bigger shot of the girl!!!!!! :wip:

03-16-2003, 12:27 PM
oh, i forgot it, the other character of is just awesome, superb poses :applause:

03-16-2003, 03:09 PM
She really has got a character. Well done:applause: Environment is beautiful too.

03-16-2003, 04:38 PM
wow, great charcterdesign and modelling.
i just thought, that triple e was working on a tv series, not on a feature film. it`s a pity to see those projects being cancelled.

03-16-2003, 05:04 PM
Great character!!!
Reminds a bit of one of the central characters I'm working on at the moment:
(either I'm working too hard, or great minds think alike....!)
Check the render on my site at:

Sorry to hear your project was aborted, BTW, and congrats on your award!


03-16-2003, 06:57 PM
Oh wow these are awesome....

Beautiful, simple, cleam....:eek:

03-16-2003, 07:26 PM

03-18-2003, 09:24 AM
Looks very good dude!
I like the style.
Maybe 1 crit. :
On the colored picture of the girl, the arm-bending need a second look. Also the arms look a bit plastic. But....great stuff!!
Also love that chubby guy! hehe :airguitar
keep it up!

03-23-2003, 05:36 AM
Wow, people have said alot of nice things about this model, I LLOOVVEEE the cheeky render of Amy in amongst the plants.
There's a whole lot of character in this character! Pretty inspiring.

You deserve all your compliments, good work and congrats.

"Don't make me run I'm full of chocolate!";)

Excellent, I love the style you've gone for, it all reminds me of the Sound of Music to no end.

04-07-2003, 06:07 PM
wow ...
thanks for all your comments.

I havent expected to see this post again.
but hey, I just uploaded a bunch of new pictures
from this project on my site.

here are the wire pix :)

thanks again.

04-07-2003, 07:38 PM
Beautifully modelled and stylised yet again, Flo; just as I've come to expect of you...Well done!
Excellently executed wires also


04-07-2003, 07:56 PM
New models.....


04-07-2003, 08:21 PM
This is truly impressive and inspiring.. How did you the model the strands of hair, with a tedious 1 by 1 process or a magic script etc? I really wonder!

Excellent work..

04-08-2003, 06:03 PM
:applause: wow, I really like your models, between realism and cartoon. Good job!:thumbsup:

04-08-2003, 07:22 PM
beautiful works.......... lookin' good :thumbsup:

04-08-2003, 09:21 PM
Just AWESOME, I love your cartoon style, very fluid and rounded, just splendide, I wish I could do that ( I'm just an amateur, modeling just for fun ).
Just One thing, the fatty boy, looks like a lot of a character in "Tom Sawyer" anime cartoon, dont know if you know who am i pointing to ;) .
Haven't found a picture of the character, but the anime was this one :)

Good work and keep going on

04-09-2003, 10:16 AM
Incredible work, your model are soo good,
very neat, and the geometry is really well handled... :love:
I wonder waht modelling method did you use?
Box modelling ? Did you use drawingd for references then some splines? Maybe edge extending ? With or without drawings?
already thx a lot,
and don't forget to post new pictures, or to say here when your demoreel will be online ;)


04-09-2003, 10:33 AM
Great style. All of the characters.
Very harmonic. Everything fits together.

A "Prost" :beer: from me on that.

04-09-2003, 11:42 AM
Stunning characters Flo. You have an amazing eye for expression.

If you wrote a tutorial on the man with the raised eye-brow, that would be brilliant.:D

Excellent! Now give her a knife! :scream:


04-18-2003, 01:00 AM
when i see work this well done, i become conflicted. i don't know if i should be really inspired that such great work can be done, or throw my computer out the window after looking at my own work. really great job.

04-18-2003, 06:48 AM
I love the expression she had on the second picture you post :)

Very Cute :thumbsup:

04-18-2003, 11:31 AM
wow...the thread came up again :)
thanks again for all thoses nice words !
ok, so here are a few more pictures. This time its mostly background characters and some render pix.
My part was doing the modeling (and setup on some of them).

@atwooki : thanks ! nice dog by the way. the scooby style is very cool !
@hesido : Indeed, it was a painfull process. I inserted lines of polys and tweaked them to hair. but all in all it was very boring to do...
@virtual_francky: hey, great comparison. The fat boy`s character is kind of similar to tom sawyer.
@ryu: yeah modeling. maybe a combination. About the reel : I cant put it online, as I dont have unlimited trafiic on my site..but Ill find a solution. Though Im already doing a new one for 2003.
@erilaz: long time ago i built this guy. But Ill try to do some kind of tutorial soon. if you really want it .... :)
@Vash T Stampede: good one ... nice idea :)
@Michel ROGER : thanks michel !


04-18-2003, 11:45 AM
Hey buddy, would it be possible for you to re-render these images so you can enter them in Expose? Would be very cool

love the new ones, how in the world do you make the Maya renderer behave like that? :)


04-18-2003, 11:51 AM
hey tito,

thanks dude !
the re-rendering could be a problem, as the production was stopped and the company closed. Thats why I have such few textured-renders to show.
I can only rerender the models without textures :hmm:

about the renderer...
seems like the texture/light and compositing people did a good job :)

thanks !

04-21-2003, 02:55 PM
Lovely expression on the girl with the horn-rimmed glasses, Flo; very disdainful:

Great stuff :)!


04-21-2003, 03:16 PM
Great character designs!!!

congrats! :thumbsup:

Umm Yeah .... i really want a tutorial :bounce:

that would be awsome

You have amazing skill; you can come up with brilliantly modeled characters every time :applause:

04-21-2003, 07:10 PM
the lighting and texturing is awesome :)
and the style of the little girl is very manga, big eyes and small mouth.
but the rest of the characters looks like american cartoons.
would love to see the little girl celshaded though :D

04-21-2003, 10:42 PM
truly inspiring work here my friend. nothing bad to say at all about these pieces. for some reason they do remind me of shrek. :)

04-21-2003, 11:05 PM
beautifull!!!!!! I love the ambiance in the farm!!! I L.O.V.E. IT!

what did you do to make this blury and soft touch in the farm?

04-22-2003, 06:13 AM
Your characters have great ... character! Wonderful!

when you use poly modeling in Maya, do you start with a box or do you do it point by point ?? thanks !!

04-22-2003, 07:11 PM
just lovely:)

It would be such a shame if this production never got finished - I'd love to see it.

The Gunslinger
04-22-2003, 07:39 PM
Hmmm, that girl with the hornrim glasses... one crit, her hair looks a little chunky. Just kidding :)

Wow, I can't offer any crits that haven't been mentioned already (or that aren't stupid jokes) so I'll just be redundant and tell you how great the models are ;) Seriously, very good job and I hope your next production has better luck... As others have said, it's a shame to see an apparently good production get cut off :( At any rate, is there any way you could clue us in on some of the story...? I would kind of like to know what it's about since I'll never get to see it... The renders you've shared have really peaked my interest. So far as I can gather it's about a little girl, her brother, magic and another girl who the conflict would be based around most likely... [/obvious]

04-22-2003, 08:45 PM
Great looking characters.:bounce:

04-22-2003, 09:24 PM
Nice ambiant feel,good characters.Just all in all wonderful art.:thumbsup:

04-23-2003, 05:35 AM
you mentioned that you later decided to use
paint effects for the 1st girl's hair.

could you tell us about that?


04-23-2003, 05:48 AM
very beautiful !

05-16-2003, 12:45 AM

Really reaaaally liked Amy :thumbsup:

05-16-2003, 03:21 PM

09-22-2005, 01:35 PM
Very cute! She looks very expressive, her eyes are great. Well done!

11-29-2005, 07:23 AM
