Now this is interesting... Hello everybody!

06 June 2007, 11:23 AM
Awesome! was hoping to see you here again, I truly adore your flowing style and stunning detail... Will be a pleasur to see where you go with this challenge mate

06 June 2007, 04:35 PM
glad to see you again!here ! good luck and have fun!

Hello again. This is my very rough sketch of idea. This time I'm going to concentrate more on the movie rather then a still, so final image will probably be a highres stylized frame of an animation maybe even a poster type image.
Anyway the movie will take around 1-2 minutes. The overall layout will probably evolve hardly in my progress. But the main idea will probably not :)
This is a post-processed 3D by the way.

DaddyMack and monsitj Thanks for welcoming, good luck to you too again :D

06 June 2007, 07:33 PM
here we go... An intriguing start mate... a world of potential in there;)

Beautiful first step here - already some nice shapes and colors. so what's the story?
Looking forward to see your progress here.

Futuristic looking isnít it? Great work with the lighting in the background the glow from behind the floating wall section is a nice feature it adds drama to the scene. I like the little floating key shape tot eh right, and Iím curious as to what significance it holds if any at all.

DaddyMack: Thanks man, lately I felt so tired. But now with this challenge I feel so inspired, it makes feel alive again :twisted:

Gunilla: Thanks, it's a story about a trapped soul into the cyber body. A soul who cruelly betrayed a men who was in love with her. Now his love became hatred and he keeps her as a prisoner in a lonely room where every day for her fades away.
My movie will show an episode where she gets an opportunity to escape. Seems like someone (or maybe she self) tries to hack the system. I want to make this whole process freak and someway scary.
BTW currently I'm experimenting and making sounds which will be used in the scene.

lemasterjg: Yeah, I'm mad about futuristic interiors. Not that I'm expert or whatever creating them, but I really like them.

06 June 2007, 02:02 PM
If that is your sketch/previz, then I think I will faint when your final render/animation
is presented, litterally faint!
Looks delicious and very futuristic!
Keep up hte great work!

First step of cyber head modeling. I'm giving more attention to overall look for now

07 July 2007, 09:06 PM (

Alright this is a begining. beginng is always a hard part... at least for me.

07 July 2007, 09:11 PM (

This is a shading test. I like to experiment on shading, even on a very rough model, it helps me to visualize better on what I'm creating.

07 July 2007, 09:13 PM
varma: Thanks man, we'll see how it will develop :)

07 July 2007, 09:22 PM
Nice start man.. good luck! :thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 09:01 AM

07 July 2007, 11:37 AM
I see a perfectionist here... good :) I can't wait to see more of it. Keep the good job up!

07 July 2007, 11:43 AM
maksy, icedays and arturro: Thanks for a support guys! :scream:

07 July 2007, 07:14 PM

Hi, some progress, strated to rig around :) so to make all modeling process more logic. Using cguploader for flv upload, so check out the animation, if I uploaded it correctly :)

Sorry for slow progress, I have a lot of other works now, so really busy. But since I really feel inspired with this, I just won't quit :). I'll have to finish this until september, because after that I'll probably won't have time at all.

Selina42 - thanks :D
imperioli, Paul-M - Aciu! :thumbsup:

Nice Modeling

I hope you don't loose to much time in all that detail. Unless you are gonna make a big render for the illustration section, i think we won't be able to see much of it.

I hope the texturing will get a little interesting cause a clean robot just isn't all that fun ;-)

07 July 2007, 07:32 PM
Ouuh I sense something potentially disturbing in this project! Can't wait! :)
The close up of the robot's profile is already very nice. Mixes beauty and robotics in such a cold and uncomfortable way.

07 July 2007, 07:50 PM
looks great, ,man! ;D
could you show us front view? :)

07 July 2007, 04:06 PM
I hope the texturing will get a little interesting cause a clean robot just isn't all that fun ;-)

There will be some textures to make it look a bit "used", but it won't be all rusty and stuff. She has to have an "expensive" look. It's an important part of concept. "Precise torturing" :twisted:

DeadSquirrel Yes! You've descibed it exactly as I want to express it, thank you :D

Paul-M Thanks, yup, you'll see it after I'll finish first half :)

07 July 2007, 08:48 PM
oh jeez..:eek: a video!:bounce: i haven't noticed it before :bounce:
Holly crap!:eek:
Man, it's awesome:eek::thumbsup:

07 July 2007, 10:08 PM
yeah, didn't notice the video as well

great stopmotion-like animation.

ps. i didn't know we could upload animations! You got a link to where we can do this?

07 July 2007, 12:15 AM
Very interesting work so far. :thumbsup:

I am a bit confused about the concept. What do you plan to show as the "Strange Behavior"? If the strange behavior is from the man holding her will you depict this in the final animation?

The video is cool. I did notice however that there are some intersecting pieces in the rear of the head, but I'm sure you realize this and will correct it. :D

07 July 2007, 08:09 AM
Great Job Andrius !
The modeling is so fine !
Can't wait to see the whole character rendered !

07 July 2007, 09:05 AM
Very nice progress since my last visit! :thumbsup: :applause:

07 July 2007, 03:32 PM
Paul-M Thanks man :D

Nothingness Yup you can do that, here is the link:
You will find here all you need to upload animation

Jedi-Juice When you will see the final, you'll understand what's strange about it :)
About the intersecting, yeah I know, behind head, I'll fix that later.

gpepper Thanks, you'll see it

maksy thanks :)

07 July 2007, 09:26 AM
hi there

cool modelling so far man, reminds me of the byork video

the concept story doesn't sound like strange behaviour to me tho, maybe it will show in the animation
