The singing formula

Hello all, I am currently doing a lot of concept sketches for my story and will be posting them as soon as I can .The singing formula: CREATION OF THE ULTIMATE ROCK STAR.

The story is about a wanna-be rock star named Jim, who takes a mysterious singing pill, called the singing formula. He forgets to read the side effects which cause him to sing and dance strangely, Jim tries to stop the involuntary actions of his body, but no luck.

His voice and body goes through numerous strange changes such as Opera, Pop, Reggae and busting a move, except for rock which was the main reason he took the pill. Jim dances until he blacks out. When he woke he was happy. He thought it was a dream, but to his surprise, Jim saw the bottle of pills which he had taken and realized that it had been real. He picked up the bottle and read the side affects, which were all that he had just experienced. Jim laughed and laughed then all of a sudden got really sad as if to cry which he did but his voice sounded like a baby crying, he gasped!, and quickly covered his mouth. Fade to black

The End

i need feed back.. weah!! weah!!

08 August 2007, 02:48 PM
nice drawings man... can tell ur full of energy....keep it up man and have a lotta fun... i like ur idea.... :thumbsup:

08 August 2007, 03:39 PM
Thats a great idea! It should be a awesome animation! :buttrock:
Your concept sketch are a fantastic start... but I think you could push it even farther. Look for references like The Misfits, Keith Richards, Slash, Ziggy Stardust, Johnny Rotten... those guys were about as rock as you could get and were some of the craziest characters in the genre. Keep it up... I would love to see how far you can take this!! :thumbsup:


Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 04:01 PM
thanks dude, I got all those reference that you recommended

I'll be posting more stuff soon

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 04:26 PM (

I took the suggestion from Zubuyer Kaolin and searched for some more references , I am currently doing my final character sketches

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 01:52 PM (

here is a further look of my main character, next I'll post some thumbnails for the set and also some props

I still haven't got any feed back..:(

08 August 2007, 06:30 PM
hey thats a nightmare for a rocker...thats my nightmare!:sad:.....ajajaja...really cool concepts.

he will dance like backstreet boy an sing like celine dion? no...poor of my country the worst music is the reaggeton...thats ugly..the nightmare of all the rockers.:buttrock:...

the drawings looks cool...i will wait for 3d skeches!:thumbsup:

08 August 2007, 12:13 AM
hey there, love your concept and art so far. the character is very strong, no worries there. I think its success will be made with the animation and voice acting.

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 09:53 PM (

Hello everyone I am currently modeling .. so here are some stuff for you guys to u can see i am testing out my texturing as well.. enjoy.. and tell my anything that you guys think might work.. heheh LETS ROCK!?

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 10:54 PM (

hello guys here i just tried out some texture on my rock star. these are not final. i am just testing stuff out.. also i just put in some simple joints just for pose for you guys to see. i am currently doing some more modeling stay tune for more

08 August 2007, 10:58 PM
Lookin cool. Only suggestion I would say is if you could make his hair move with the animation. It will come more alive, even just a little jiggle as if it were made of jello.

08 August 2007, 11:30 PM
Looking very cool Wayne! I like the style. Keep pushing that line of action on your character. Give him some big swoops, arcs, and flows when you start animating. Also, I think your dude could use some huge hair.....and you could animate that to help the rockstar thing as well. Don't have to do fur, I'm talking about big geometry hair......just an idea!

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 12:28 AM
I love the suggestion about the hair being big .. and some movement to it and definitely geometry all the should be fun rigging that.


thanks man, its like ur reading my mind.. i am definitely gonna use some killer arcs and exaggeration in my animation.

good luck to you guys .. ill be checking out you guys stuff too and leaving my 2 cents

08 August 2007, 03:33 AM
wow already in 3D!... the character is looking nice bro! Good job with the clean modeling! I'm digging the poses. can tell this is gonna b fun!

keep up the good works mate!

08 August 2007, 07:28 AM
Excellent style ! I love it !

08 August 2007, 01:28 PM
Hey, I like the style of the character. Your drudging ahead man you've already got him rigged up and ready for animation. Keep on going dude!

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 04:39 PM
thanks for the feed back guys excellent.

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 05:09 PM (

hey guys.. long hair or short hair?

i can't decide. because with the short hair i could just animate it to jiggle a bit.. but with the big hair . i can go all wild out.. i am so scared of going all guitar hero look alike.. guys give me opinion

08 August 2007, 05:30 PM
I vote Long... If he's gonna rock... he needs long hair :buttrock:

08 August 2007, 06:05 PM
i'm agree, long hair....get wild mate! he will look like a heavy rocker!:buttrock:

08 August 2007, 09:07 PM
another hand in the air for long

BTW you're making this look easy... from the first sketch onward I knew this would be loads o fun... Congrats on a killer character and concept:thumbsup:

08 August 2007, 11:08 PM
dude, this rocks :D , and agree with the others long hair!!

don't think he looks like the guitar hero guy, ... as what i remember of screenshots

love the poses and proportions.

08 August 2007, 04:45 AM
good man good for u

08 August 2007, 06:43 AM
Nice job...the model progress is so cool...:thumbsup:

Congrats, good luck and keep going!

08 August 2007, 10:41 AM
excellent blend shapes.
how about a nose flare? i'm thinking it will help achieve some of the gurning guitarists do when they get carried away

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 01:22 PM
thank you guys for the response , I am motivated..I really can't wait to get animating. but there is so many steps before that.

As for the Blendshapes slured1 .. I got a few more to model out and I am trying to get a little more creative wit them.. So the one you suggested might just be in there. thanks dude!!

08 August 2007, 12:52 AM

Hello guys here is the long awaited concept of my first set. I'll post the other in a sec.

Guys this is jim's room, he is really untidy, he has a poor wanna be a rock star life style.Jim lives in a basement,. His room tells the type of person he really is :) give me some crits.More stuff coming soon and I already model half my props,so stay tuned!!!

08 August 2007, 09:00 PM
Hi, This is all looking great, love your character and idea. It is all looking awesome. Also probably to late now but add another tick again to long hair. Hes a rocker!

The room is looking pretty good. Can you make it messier still. Just wondering if there could be more picures on the walls and maybe put somethings on angles. Not up straight. More bottles around the place, empty. Maybe a passed out friend under the couch. Poster on the back of he door? Anyway it is looking real nice. Keep up the great work.

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 10:36 PM (

Hey guys.It me again, here is my second scene.Basically this is after he took the pill and fall into a duzie:) , this set is like a God like rock stage that he is going to go and kick some aasset!!! .. more stuff coming soon man stay tuned.. give me some feedbacks:)

08 August 2007, 10:40 PM
drawings are looking sweet man.... i like the room design.. and yes as darth said, make it messy ...

keep up the good works mate:thumbsup:

08 August 2007, 07:20 PM
Looks great man, but I think you could push the 'rock god' set more. Think more along the lines of a throne-on-top-of-a-mountain kinda feel. Like where would Zeus play if he wanted to rock out? Huge speakers behind him, lots of fire, thunder clouds, way above the crowd, and his name written really big in lights!

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 08:33 PM
hey slangford ... thanks man thats definatly the time of feel i wanna give.. thanks

Hello guys I have got a few Questions.

(1) Is it ok to use License music?

I am planing on using KISS FORM A ROSE by seal.but its gonna be re done by a band at my school with a little more rock in it. Also planing on using some more license songs.

guys I have been working night and day on this project. I don't feel comfy to post anything yet because everything is so all over the place.Hahaha ! I got to get organize

Is there anybody out there with some wicked guitar solos? please i need help!

stay tuned guys!!

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 04:02 AM (

Hello guys here is a model wip for the establishing shot,showing where Jim lives. I think this kinda fits well with the theme as well hahah.An old shack in the middle of two apartment building, rather unusual.

The camera pans towards the buildings and then into Jim's room. I got lost more stuff to post. i am not organized yet

stay tuned for more!!

08 August 2007, 06:07 AM
gr8 modleing on the set bro... love the design and style... keep goin!

08 August 2007, 03:34 PM
nice one
I would add an open or broken gate to the fence.
add some lanterns.
the little building inside that gap looks really good.

08 August 2007, 03:58 PM
NIce piece there! fun...htat tiny house between thos buildings....nice style!:thumbsup:

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 06:25 PM (

Hello guys, I put some more junk in jims yard. check it out

08 August 2007, 08:09 PM
Interesting concept man. I love the model and the exterior looks great too! He looks like he'd be tons of fun to animate with.

Can't wait to see it lit :P

08 August 2007, 08:40 PM
Very cool! Your earlier post ("46) reminds me a lot of Grand theft auto!
Would love to see this animated!

08 August 2007, 06:08 PM
I really like your style! Wery nice location.
What about an overfilled garbagecan and some powercables from his window to the block, maybe he's "lending" power or something? And also using the powerlines to dry clothes?
If you put up some lights, the one outside his property shouldn't work, or switch on and off.
Keep ut the good work! :)

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 11:09 PM (

Hello ladies and gentle dudes, here is another whip of my exterior.

Modeling on the interior is also finish so, ill be posting that next.

man I am loosing so much sleep, but I am loving it. No more unfinished work for me I got to break that habit.

08 August 2007, 02:27 AM
looking great mate:thumbsup: lol at sleepless because it gets me every time... The challenge seems so innocent at the start and then I get obsessed... You're already in too deep not to finish this. Keep the killer updates coming Wayne:buttrock: and Rock on!

08 August 2007, 02:37 AM
nice work man! keep rockin

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 08:16 PM (

hello guys here is my original concept for the exterio establishing shot. Just want you guys to see where its coming from to where it is now.

I want to ask you guys a question, I have so much stuff to model and layout so I was wondering if its possible for me to get a lending hand from a friend to help me layout and model a few props and stuff. I will give him full credit for what he help me with. let me know what you think, so I don't go ahead and get disqualified.

please respond as soon as possible

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 08:17 PM
thanks you guys.

08 August 2007, 08:57 PM
Hmm.. I couldn't find anything in the rules about this but as far as I could tell it's meant to be an individual category, that's why they give the team option for the short film... Imagine if I have a small army of artists work on my project... that would give me an unfair advantage over all of my competition... I think you're doing an awesome job here anyways mate and you're way ahead of most of us already

Probably best to contact a forum leader if you want a real answer tho:shrug:

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 03:09 AM
thanks daddy for the heads up. I think I was just getting scared about finishing on time . But your right, I 'm in good shape.

I will just carry on plucking away on this thing myself, Jim is doing fine I rigged the long hair so that it moves with him, so for now he is on pause.

I am taking a break this weekend, gonna go to the park and feed the birds and just relax with my girl.

evengi: thanks for you interesting request as you can see I added your wish and it does add some more character to the set.

thank you all. see you guys Monday:)

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 02:39 AM (

Hello guys, check out this latest whip for the exterior. Just added some more garbage

As you can see Jim is stealing light from the apartment. haha!

I have so much stuff to get around to, such as the storyboard and animatic. I planed to get all that done this coming week.

Man all i have to say I love this challenge soo much

Bran new week its gonna be great.I see tons of all nighters in the future hahaha

Wayne jermaine
08 August 2007, 10:07 PM (

Hello guys, check out the interior of Jim's apartment This is my second set. modeling is all finish for it.

Next I'll be going back to working on the Rockstar,tweaking Rigs, texture, model. I don't have any beauty shots yet so stay tuned:)

08 August 2007, 05:50 AM
I think Oclussion render is beauty enough, well, so far!
I like the design of interior with messed rectangulars, like the door, and
espeically the tv, could be nice experience watching Simpsons on that
Keep up mon!

08 August 2007, 01:48 PM
Lookin great man! Seems like you're getting alot done...
but, is that a Nintendo on the floor? :thumbsup:

08 August 2007, 02:49 PM

Hello once again. Guys I am having a bad hair day, please give me your suggestions on these two different hair whip.

the geometry on one of the hair style is kinda wack, I am having problems so I change it to more of a dread lockish style, but not quite.

anyways guys give me your thoughts on this one.Thank you very much:)

08 August 2007, 09:36 PM
I'm a fan of the dreads mate.. The long hair was cool but kinda non descript

08 August 2007, 12:36 AM
The dreadlock looks really great! I love it! Maybe you just change the haircolor from
black to something lighter to show all the details you got there!
Keep going!

09 September 2007, 01:49 PM
Sorry, Im not a fan of the dreads... they make him look like a little-girly-boy. It could be just the way they are styled. But right now they dont seem to fit his style. I would go back to the original hair, if the geometry is giving you trouble... try simplifying it and see what you could do with textures.


09 September 2007, 03:14 PM
OH cool progress...this rocks dude!...i just love the character!:love:

09 September 2007, 08:23 AM
Nice going mate!! Abt the hair the dreadlock rite now is looking good... but u might wanna do more explorations with it... but u can keep the dreadlock if u want... i dig the style... keep up the good works...
