So i'm continuing to model the characters, the models are still rough, they still need a lot of work, but here is what i've done so far..

So, tell me your opinions about John before i go any deeper...

07-10-2007, 04:21 PM
the dragon looks good. can't say anything about z-brush cuz i don't go there (yet...)
the fat guy also looks good. the jowels give him a lot of character.

you will get more C and C if you use the uploader to post your WIP.
to do that...

so go to the challenge page where you went to enter.
click where it says submit entry.

or click here
http://features.cgsociety.org/chall...ubmit_entry.php (http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/strange_behavior/submit_entry.php)

scroll down to the bottom, sign in and upload your images.
i believe jpg is the recommended format, they must be less than 150 Kb.

good luck.

07-16-2007, 07:00 PM

ypu'll probably have to read teh directions to figure out proper format and stuff.

can't help more as i haven't gotten there myself yet...

07-19-2007, 01:11 AM
Looking good, especially your model for John. I'll return to check for updates.

07-19-2007, 12:13 PM
Hey Sherif,

Liking the look of your John, almost got a bit of a Shriek look there, is your character going to be set in any particular time period?

Waiting to see more!

Good luck!

07-19-2007, 12:31 PM
Yea, the jacket is a little bit inspired from shrek,
i'm working on Amy now and i'm almostly finished with john.

Steve: i really like your sketches, and i love the idea of the 7 sins, really good..
Henrik: you are doing very good too, great storyborads, great progress till now..

really can't wait to see more of you guys, good luck ;)

This is a very rough idea about the Amy character, i made her tall and thin so she is the opposite of john, which makes contrast between the two characters.

07-19-2007, 04:10 PM
cool characters ** - I like the orc shrek guy. but the style is different on amy. you should make them both orc's and maybe give amy some under arm hair. and a beard.

07-19-2007, 11:48 PM
Interesting constrast of shapes!

07-20-2007, 04:52 AM
really cool models ............ liked all of them :)

07-20-2007, 10:50 PM
i like the contrast of the super thin and the hefty size in the characters.

one thing about amy.
it looks like to lengthen her legs you popped the boots on so the tops are just at her ankles are. i think it might improve what you are going for if you raise the boot up just a little, maybe just the top, not the sole, or scale up her whole leg on the y axis (maya's y axis that is) so that the leg is longer and the ankle is hidden. i think it would help you achieve what you are going for. just my opinion though.

good luck.

Well, she looks ugly. If you mean her to be ugly, it's working :)

Have you described your adaptation? Maybe we can understand better your design choices if you give us an idea how your story is like.

Good luck.

This is the art gallery, I gave it the look of a haunted house, those weired things can't happen in an ordinary art gallery..

Software: Maya

this is a quick playblast with a test character, (i'll replace him with john)
the character is roughly animated, and then i'v added a lattice deformer to him to make this sucking effect, for the painting, i've used softbodies with goal and springs, and by the way this effect was inspired from a dynamics dvd from thegnomonworkshop by alex alvarez (softbodie effects)...thought i should mention this...

All of your characters are good, I hope to see you in runner ups :thumbsup:
