Hey all. Wanted to get in on "Heavy Metal" but I couldn't. I'm definatelly getting in on this one. Hope I'll have the time to finish it. Here's my backplate. A concept later on.

here's a fast one... only to get the idea of which formation stands where.... it seems somebody missplaced my waccom.. so i had to mouse-it.... it's not like my draing skills are great... but this is ridiculous.... i'll come back with an update of it :)

03 March 2003, 01:45 PM
this is a thingie.... i don't really know what it is :) ... i think it brings up the space-ships from underground... and powers them up.. and .. send them out... it's basically.... a thingie :p

03 March 2003, 02:52 PM
I like that thingie...

That is a NICE thingie....


Sorry - Shrek moment there...

Looks cool, but you didn't say on your sketch where the thingie was going to go ;)

03 March 2003, 03:01 PM
the thingie which was generically called "heliport" is going to go in the place on the sketch called.... heliport :) ..... and the upper pipe is going to penetrate the wall.... btw... concept credit goes to Mr Feng Zu.

Ahhh - the top one is a pipe thingie...

I wasn't entirely sure what it was meant to be - whether that was the thing that sent out ships - it had a certain gun-like quality to it!

Nice work, though!

cool looking model you got there.. looking forward to seeing it actually in the landscape.

03 March 2003, 05:57 PM
this is the space ship. There will be 2 types of spaceships. This will mainly fly in the background .. and they will be docked like on the sketch...

Here's a test I did on the zooming/panning. It's rough, only to give me an idea of the possibilities. You can get the file here (

divx 5.02 codec required.

kewl, the begining is very good, when the camera "flies" over the rock., hey maybe you can even put a structure/ alien. alien plant on that rock?

Only I noticed the couds moving very fast.. I would say; don't let the clouds/sky move at all..
and if you use this animation, I think, the airport area wouldn't be very well visable... the fo

well carry on, your stuff looks very promosing !

03 March 2003, 08:38 PM
the clouds wil be moving a lot slower.. this was just a test...

a stucture there is not really good... i will have The orb flying from below the rock.....

03 March 2003, 11:44 PM
The motion test has the quality of two 2D plates being moved, but the planned motion looks good! In fact, as soon as I saw it, I thought of the camera following an alien robot probe as it returns to base.

The base image has a good strong center to it too, so you are off to a good start. Composition was causing me trouble such that it took me all night to pick something (as a photographer originally, I tend to fixate on the found rather than collage).

There are going to be some amazing shots coming out of this challenge.:thumbsup:

03 March 2003, 12:56 AM
way to go man!
the clouds indeed are too fast but u said it's only a test so i won't bother u :P
i say u should concentrate more on the buildings than the can add later any ships you want ;)
i'll be watching you! :beer:

03 March 2003, 09:22 AM
He he ! Good start with these model and with camera movments ! As i say it before you are in the right path ! I'm watching you !
