I have no freakin idea what I'm going to do yet but it'll probably have lots and lots of particles :)

Opps, sorry double post

OK, I have an idea, well actually several but the one I'm leaning towards is a scene set in antartica with satan skating on a frozen plane steam rising up up all around him, snow falling. All around are ice cliffs of various obtuse shapes. Behind him is a craved out arena of sorts filled with all kinds of angels, demons, maybe a few stray penguins doing all kinds of strange behavior type of things.
Haven't done any sketches yet but will this weekend.

Other concepts:
- Einstein lecturing on how God does not play dice, meanwhile God is throwing darts to decide what accident falls Einstein.

- God giving the 10 commandments of evolution to an amoeba

- A formal dinner with a bunch of Aliens (Alien, type aliens) with a human popping out of a cake or something.

- Mrs death informing Death shes expecting

- An alien zoo with humans mixed with dinos

I think the satan skate fest is the best so far. Got lots of funny hijinx to fill the stand with and even a Bad Year blimp idea.

Concept images coming as soon as possible.

Hey good luck Tim! I like the Skating Satan idea, very clever and the strongest of your concepts.

Just an extremely quick throw together for the concept. No none of this will actually be the actual objects used. I only had a few minutes to through something together today.
Plus I'll have a bunch of characters, angels, demons, penguins, ect in the ice seats.

Hi there!
Thanks for kind words about my not typical strange behaviour concept. I see you also have some deeper ideas :)

I like freezy hell, but it's not much better than other ideas. Mrs Death sounds completely strange as well, not to mention einstein who rocks here. Are you sure you want to go for this skating? I think it has biggest potential to develop a nice picture (forgetting for a while about the concept), Einsten gives a bit smaller opportunities, but on the other hand you focus on two characters... which in most known cg art works was enough:) the less the better...

good luck and I'm waiting for your next move :thumbsup:

Thanks Arturro, I'm still playing with a couple new ideas including another one with Einstein and his views on Spookiness (the ability of 1 atom being in two places at once) having him renounce its existence while hes semi-quantum mirrored himself ready to whack himself with a mallet.

But I'm still rally leaning towards Hell On Ice. It has some interetsing style challenges that appeal to me.

Hi Aurora,your idea is really funny.Good luck.

Nice idea, the opposite of hot and cold. Very N-ICE ! :) hehe.

Good luck.

Really freakin idea! :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. After a long day doing homework, and still more to go (I thought today was a freakin holiday here in the US, someone forgot to tell my prof) I've decided to go ahead with the Hell on Ice concept over the others I have. Theres some interesting effects I have been thinking about that will be fun to pay with. Not sure how far I'll go with it as it depends on how I want my devil to look, redish ZBrushed skin or Balrog flamish type skin.
Will start real modeling when/if I get done with this horrid math crap.

07 July 2007, 06:48 PM
Nice idea. Hope to see more. Good luck man.

Thank you Ali, much appreciated. I have started work on two different concepts for the devil himself but still am lost on the final render for him, as in do I want him to be semi-flamey using particles. If so I'll go with one character design else the other but sadly this week is booked to the hilt so no modeling to this weekend. Meaning I have till this weekend to decide.

funny concept

Man I can't believe how much time I have had to let slip by. But FINALLY I have a chance to start working on this. So heres the roughed out devil character. No frets I know I still have tons of work to do to make him look decent but alas this is the only 2 and a half hours I had for today. More updates this weekend though.
