07 July 2003, 08:38 AM

07 July 2003, 08:54 AM
I always forget how cool QTVR is!

I love the lighting.


07 July 2003, 09:48 AM
I've been a big fan of your work since I went to your site a couple months ago. That is one of the BEST cel shaded characters I've ever seen. And the lighting is beautiful. :applause:

just incredible work bflex as i said, i spent several hours just viewing your site. all your work is just fantastic. i cant belive 4 people have replied to this thread, they should view all the work you put into this image. i mean it looks great, but when they actually see all the work its amazing.

07 July 2003, 05:30 AM
I really like your work on this character. The cel shader works incredibly well and even when animated the lines come into play just the way they should. It really looks like anime! Great work on your website too. I noticed in the animations on your site and wanted to make a comment on your "updated run". I think adding the motion blur wrecks the "anime" effect and reminds me that I'm actually watching CG. Real cartoons can't motion blur like that. Also, I noticed a lot of popping with the shadows in the front of her shirt. The shadows on the back work really well, but in the front it flickers.

If this character is intended for use in a show, I wanted to know if she has any facial expression built in yet. I saw a smile but didn't know for sure. How much range will she have? If so, what are you using to control it?

07 July 2003, 09:19 AM
i think it's great, and i disagree with bitmap... how is that suggestive? she's just sitting there!

07 July 2003, 10:20 AM
for the backround bflex, did you just paint a texture?

07 July 2003, 10:35 AM
wow! very nice:buttrock:

07 July 2003, 10:40 AM
Very nice shaders and character as well!
The mood works great. Looking forward to see it animated;)

07 July 2003, 02:53 AM
wow, thanks guys, thanks for loving my works :)

07 July 2003, 07:21 PM

how can i miss this thread, everyone should watch this :applause: :buttrock:

I really like the color scheme :buttrock:

proud to be a fellow taiwanese :beer: :P
之前就看果你 vivian 的網站喔 ^^

07 July 2003, 10:30 PM
A friend of mine showed me your site a while back. I love your work, absolutely amazing :applause: . IMO best usage of cell shading I have seen.

07 July 2003, 02:39 AM
It's intriguing, very.

At first it's like ok nice........, but then one notices the beauty in detail, line, pose. It's absolutely beautifull.

07 July 2003, 08:07 AM
Cool camera you use ! I like you make it all splendid feeling ,
and the cool lighting also nice :)

07 July 2003, 08:55 AM
beautifully done with warm colors i love it!

09 September 2003, 02:31 AM
I love your work, BFlex, and your website is a beautiful thing, too! :love:

09 September 2003, 02:54 AM
that's great
it's amazing,:applause: :applause:
well done with catoon shader,and very impressive
i have sawn your artworks before,and it's still neat,cute....
you should show the animations and blend shapes also get a link
to visit your website.

09 September 2003, 03:37 AM
Lovely pose. I especially like the poses you got out of the hands :D. Only critique i could give would be the ink lines boil at times, however that would be a fault with the renderer and not your work. Beautiful!

09 September 2003, 10:18 AM
Excellent. I like the way you rotated the camera around her !


09 September 2003, 10:39 AM
Beautiful color scheme.Nice job.:beer:

09 September 2003, 10:44 AM
Do you know where to find the simcloth for max, or does it comes with the program?

09 September 2003, 10:45 AM
You're on the front page. Please email me a large still render so that I can include this in the gallery:


09 September 2003, 10:54 AM
Absolutely stunning.

QTVR is great technology. I had the opportunity to do some very intensive kiosk virtual-tour type work with it, employing a program called LiveStage Pro to weave together Flash, and QTVR into a QuickTime interface. Turned out very nicely. The beauty of your work, and the impact it makes as one surveys the scene, makes me eager to start up on something new myself!

An inspiration. Bravo!

09 September 2003, 10:56 AM

09 September 2003, 10:57 AM
Very nice. I really like the results you've been able to get out of ink and paint. If you have a chance, can you post a wire frame of her face? I'm interested in how you constructed the nose and mouth. Thanks.

09 September 2003, 10:59 AM
really nice work

good work on the lighting and shading!!
only thing is where do i put this file, in my images directory or my movies directory :)

Movie i guess. its virtually impossible for an image to get so mobile.:scream:

09 September 2003, 11:23 AM
This finally made it to the front page, and this is a really old thread too. Well, better late then never. :)

09 September 2003, 11:25 AM
so beautiful :applause:

09 September 2003, 11:59 AM
As I mentioned when this piece was linked in a toon shader discussion a few months ago, it's fantastic...

...But the image unsettles me a little. Isn't she a little (a LOT) young for us to be peering up the back of her skirt? :surprised

09 September 2003, 12:10 PM
Very cool. The format is really interesting as well. I have never seen one of those before. :blush: :rolleyes: and, GCranium, is a cartoon. holy cow already.

09 September 2003, 12:11 PM
Lovely work!!!

pretty girl too. And a good pose. I wonder how long did you take to finish up this scene?


09 September 2003, 12:27 PM
I really enjoy the way you use the QTVR Object technology. It let the spectator choose the point of view he wants to really appreciate all the aspects of your charater. Unless the weight of the file, this kind of work should be more used by the cg community to get feedback on their work. It 's a good compromise between a still image and a classic video. I've already used a plug-in called MaxVrQT or something like that to make the same effect for an add on a website. It's quite great because you can also make a classical Panoramical QTVR...

Concerning the cell shading, could you give us clues on the way you get this typical manga effect ?

09 September 2003, 12:33 PM
never have i seen a better composition of cartoon shading and 3d.
excelent work.

In some places certain things are illegal, 'cartoon' or not. :shrug:

09 September 2003, 12:46 PM

09 September 2003, 01:20 PM
GCranium, it may be in violation of law, or deemed wrong somewhere, but to me, it is merely beautiful. Beautiful like a dewdrop, or a goldfish, or a flower. And yes, it is 'provocative', but not in a dirty way. That is my feeling on it.

09 September 2003, 01:34 PM
im speachless.
this has definitely blown the socks i wasnt wearing, off my feet.

first of all the environment textures, lighting, shading, is absolutely down my ally, and thats why im diggin this piece.

not to mention the model, and her pose. are wikkid, i love the detail you went into setting up this pose (with one of her fingers more bent on her left side, barely scraping the floor

the way she just stares out into the light/sun.

And with the QTVR it really allows people (me anyways) to see the model how i'd like to see it (in full 3d).

congrats man, definitely bookmarking this piece to show to some friends.

cant wait to see more of your work.

09 September 2003, 01:44 PM
It is very nice, the warm lighting really completes the scene. I have seen your other 3D anime works and they are all quite impressive in keeping with the style.

09 September 2003, 02:51 PM
Hey Ming-yuan!

I never saw your work before. I am a student in training. I love Japanese Animation... but art schools hate it >_< fooools!!! Haha, anyways, I personally HATE 3d cell shaded animes (which is a new trend).. some things are good some are HORRID, for instance when they have the backgrounds cell shaded too (urgh.. I just hate it... the backgrounds should be painted as in the old animes :D). I also sometimes hate the cell shaded animes when they have huge eyes.. its awkward... BUT it all depends!

I never saw your work before and well.. what can I say... the word fascinated is below standard! Your work is really amazing work! I never believed you could capture the modernish traditional feel of anime through cell shading that well! I have switched from 3dsmax to maya.. I just love the interface of Maya.. hmm you are urging me to go back to max haha.

I personally love traditional anime... I HATE cell shaded anime (which is today's trend), well with the exception of GITS (although the cars were really fakeish) and your work :D I hate doing traditional art myself, and love 3D hehe funny combination :cool: I would love it if you made tutorials or tips, etc... on how you do some things.

I am very glad of hearing about you and seeing your work!


09 September 2003, 03:02 PM
Damn it, I love the still picture, can't wait to get home to check out the QTVR version. This modem connection here is killer. From what I see so far, it's great

09 September 2003, 03:02 PM
I惴 impressed, the way you work with the colours. Your 3D realy look as 2D, Is very smooth and stylish, and above all , very well modeled.

Do you have any take with the character moving?
I would like to see it!!!

Greeeeaaaaat work !!!

09 September 2003, 03:06 PM
It's my turn right now!...
I'm new in 3D anime, but I'm already 2D anime artist, I like your 3D coloring very much, but there is some things you should look for:
You should add more layers (levels) for the shadow, there's is one side of the shadow in your works (two are good for simple).
And you should add the hard light, on her skin and her hair (this will make you work more better)
Finally her eyes, look more for the lights and her lrises...

Good work, and keep on working :thumbsup:

09 September 2003, 03:41 PM
the girls pose is amazing and the atmosphere is just incredible i defiantly find this thread inspiring, unique technique and really nice piece of art..
keep it up :thumbsup:

09 September 2003, 03:50 PM
amazing! never seen such good cel shading!
would be great to se the caracter animated!

09 September 2003, 04:03 PM
:applause: I really like it .... is awsome !!! :drool: :thumbsup:

09 September 2003, 04:30 PM
YES MAN ! :applause:

09 September 2003, 04:59 PM
Very cool work :thumbsup:

however on the picture she is resting on her right hand. Actually she's not resting on her hand but on her fingers. Don't think that's a very comfortable pose - must hurt a lot ;) I would bring down the palm.

keep going!

09 September 2003, 05:04 PM
i just downloaded, i really like the way we can view it, and of course the tecnique that u used, maybe more works here can be view like this is a great great idea!

Marc Andreoli
09 September 2003, 05:06 PM
fantastic composition (pose,colors...) !
The only thing that slightly bothers me (only once I noticed it ;) ) are her eyes. Like eYadNesS mentioned before, they are mirrored while the reflection should be the same on both.

Other than that, great work. I off to study your website right now... :thumbsup:

09 September 2003, 06:51 PM
Hey! Hey! Hey! Ink'n'paint? Character? Simcloth? bloody hell
that's Awsome! Never seen that before:wip: Amazing work :wip:
Gosh! Nom d'une couille !
Five for me guys!!!!!!

09 September 2003, 08:05 PM
Oh wow, that is just simply awesome. I love how you went about making that cell shader, I must try your method. Can you explain some more on how you achieved that amazing anime shader look?

09 September 2003, 08:10 PM
pretty interesting technique you brought!
i've never seen stuff like that at CGtalk.
that's refreshing, man~
i'm looking forward to seeing another version of it.
good job!!

09 September 2003, 08:50 PM
This work is marvellous, also very dreamy.

I love pieces that capture a mood as well as been solidly put together.

09 September 2003, 09:23 PM
again i am so impressed with your work. thanks for posting the breakdowns-- those are really interesting. looks really great so far-- i know they are works in progress, those animation tests are cool-- love that shader-- looks so ethereal.

it is clear that you are very talented because your artistic vision comes through in so many different types of media--- great stuff--- i look forward to seeing more.

09 September 2003, 09:44 PM
congratulations, this is nice job.

wow:applause: :beer: :beer:

Staggering work! I love it! The character blends in very well with the surronding environment.

Just amazing :)

Keep up the good work :buttrock:

Funny ? Have you won the cgtalk award yet?

Well you should.

Just my opinion :D

09 September 2003, 10:45 PM
amazing work! and i love your website.... nothing suggestive about the pose either. once again, excellent work.

09 September 2003, 10:53 PM
WOW! :eek:

This has become my favorite artwork that I've seen here so far since I first came across CGTalk! That is amazingly spectacular...

Excellent work. :beer:

09 September 2003, 11:01 PM
beautifully done!!!:applause:

09 September 2003, 11:34 PM

Very very very very nice!


09 September 2003, 12:43 AM
I really like the warm colors. I feel like the sun coming through her window has woken her up from her nap.

09 September 2003, 01:54 AM
holy cow. this is a great model. with a great setup and shaders. I love it.. i LOVE IT. where are you from?

09 September 2003, 02:25 AM
wow.great work!i like it.:applause:

09 September 2003, 02:47 AM
I like the look and feel, great use of colour and lighting.

09 September 2003, 05:49 AM
great wrok! I like the light shoot through the window. really good! keep walking!:applause:

02 February 2004, 01:57 AM
Just came across your thread and your website and I am absolutely taken back by your cell-shaded 3d characters. I have been working on creating my own 2d anime in Lightwave, but I haven't found a decent method of creating the outlines for the character (LW doesn't have very good methods for this, in my opinion).

02 February 2004, 01:57 AM
You have becoming my new inspiration. :)

EDIT: Could a Mod merge my to posts? (I started 2 new posts instead of 1 by mistake, but it won't let me delete the second post)
