Just having another look because I liked him so much and noticed he doesn't have a whole lot of room in that helmet. You could probably make it a little larger without sacrificing too much of the "look" you have going now. Up to you obviously, I still like it a lot.

Thank you Mibus!! You saved my work :beer:

06 June 2008, 09:48 AM
great you made the deadline. Congratulation. It was fun to watch. There is something that is bringing your and my entry closer - maybe its the point that something "nice" becomes "bad" :)
My only crit will be your soundtrack is fighting a bit with overall artdirection but that is just my taste I guess. Good job, Good luck!

06 June 2008, 12:38 PM
Thanks JurajMolcak :beer:

Yeah the soundtrack is a shame, because I don't have enough time to finish the sound FX, so I just put a single music on it. But I working on this now, to get a more polish short movie in my portifolio :). And I belive this will make "more understandable" the history too, with the aplause sound in the end, for example.

Who want to see the movie in a better resolution, here is a link:

And thanks for watching :)

Love your visual style. One of my favorites here.

Glad to hear you're working on sound! Can't wait to see what you end up with.
