hi there, thanks for stopping by my thread , i 'll be posting images soon , i like ur idea , funny :D , looking forward for the updates , soon :buttrock:

hi everybody , still thinking about the story , just can't get it right , but here is the main idea anyway , and help would be greatly appreciated

A train flying over the city , and a small boy looking from the window , then he is distracted by something inside the train , he looks , his pen fell down , while he is trying to get it , an image he's drawing appears , picture of gardens , anyway the boy gets his pen and keep drawing while trees ....
the old city is falling into darkness , under a heavy smoke , people walking the streets desperate and sad , wearing gas masks , poverty on the streets .....

so this is what i have so far on my mind , something against pollution , but still don't know where is the story , and how to end it , please if u have any ideas , i would be more than glad to listen to them :love: , cya :buttrock:

thanks dude , i 'll do my best on this one

here is a simple storyboard for the movie , so the idea is simple , steampunks were used into wars , city have fallen , in the end every city is mainly destroyed , then a small kid i hidden somewhere after the war is over , living in his small world , drawing a world of his dreams , green gardens , flowers , and sunshine :D
hope u like the idea , if u have suggestions , i would be glad to here them , cya ;)

nothing so fancy ,just testing some colors , and painted street texture , still basic stuff, i 'll do more when i have some free time :D , C&C are welcomed as usual , cya ;)

12-20-2008, 10:25 PM
Wuhu! I like the skeches!

nothing specific , just testing the characters in the scene , i 'll be free in 2 days , so i think finally i 'll have the time to work on the entry , anyway C&C are welcomed , cya ;)

01-08-2009, 04:59 PM (

ok here is the kid , modeled and textured in the last two days , i created a simple rig , now the problem that he doesn't look like a kid , also his head feels small to me , i 'll try to make him look younger , anyway C&C would be helpful , cya ;)

01-12-2009, 07:13 PM (

ok here is the two big vehicles that will have the fight in the shot ,feedback would be great :D , cya ;)

01-12-2009, 07:22 PM (

the small kid is mainly finished too , ok let me tell u a bit about the story , the movie will start with the kid dreaming , he is playing in his innocent world then he wakes up on strong shaking , when look out the window , he sees army marching through the street , then people start firing from the buildings , its a trap for the marching army , anyway the point is he is gonna watch people killing each other and death , so he falls down , sit in the corner , afraid and start crying , then a guy would show up at the room's door then zoom on the kids eyes , he grows up , then screams reloading his gun , so the idea is what the war can do for innocent kids , transforming them into killing machines , i hope its good one , if u have any ideas i would be glad to hear them , thanks ;)

Very cool looking CG.
The boy is 1930'ish in a super cool way.
I can't really tell whay Myth og Legend you've based your story upon though, but it sounds pretty cool, indeed!
