View Full Version : The Showdown - character - Milho

06 June 2003, 06:21 PM
Ok I'm in...
I already started working on it some days ago.
The idea is a arm wrestling (thx to my cousin who had the idea ;) ). Of cource we got a goliath like big guy and a clumsy small dude.
Style is cartoony, I'll post the concepts soon...

Good Luck everyone :thumbsup:

! EDIT !
Here an update. I didn't want to fill the thread with modeling wips because that's not what this is about :)
So here the clumsy guy.

Kid Mesh: I haven't thougt about it....I was thinking about the good old GI style but cell would be also ok since I render the hair in a seperate pass. I'll decide later on.

Cheers :beer:

Here the concept so you can see what I am up to...

So far your model looks just like your concept...great start.

You said that this is going to be cartoony...are you going to cel shade it?

Here the title pic I did in some freetime at work....I think it shows nicely what style I want to reach / the attitude of the characters

Can we have a storyboard or something? Whats going to happen in this arm wrestle? Sorry if you have answered these questions in your movie as I can't download it at the moment, I like your model though.

I'm a d*mb*ss :banghead:

I knew I forgot something.
Ok here the story:
ClumsyGuy vs. BigGuy

Selfsure Clumsyguy starts the armwrestling but he can't manage his opponent (look at picture above).
The BigGuy doesn't care about him, because he is obviously stronger. He just keeps smoking his fat lady and ignores the LilGuy until his Cigarre falls on his lap. As he jumps up and start to burn the ClumsyGuy can defeat him! He cheers up and in the back we see the BigGuy running and burning :)


I have a storyboard but it isn't scanned yet. Sorry this comes so late, I wondered why nobody answered my thread hehe :D

I'll tell you what! Between your arm wrestling and my staring competition, we should start a new trend and maybe make them Olympic sports...

06 June 2003, 12:22 PM
Yeah, the topic of this challenge is wrong ;)

Ok I did a new storyboard and changed the end of the short...instead of the fire he...see on your own :eek:

Very amce-cartoonish...I love this stuff.
Sorry for doing attachments but from here (work) I can't access my ftp :rolleyes:

06 June 2003, 12:23 PM
And here part 2.... I hope I can do this in 20 secs....

06 June 2003, 12:24 PM
and here the new ending

Oh man, this is a great concept! If you are able to pull it off, we have a winner, very nice and original stuff here!
