nice concepts :) are u using a tablet i think ;) what tablet do you have :)?

06 June 2009, 02:39 PM
to DoubleP90: :cry: I ONLY DREAM TO HAVE A TABLET (innttuuuooooossss foooooouuuu-huuuuur )...hhhhHHHHHhhhh...It is 100% mouse painting...
in fact I cant do a decent 2d job..this is one of the reason because at last i did so many 3d stuff. BUT...u made me happy!! THIS CONCEPT LOOKS DONE WITH A TABLET!?
oh happyness! :)

06 June 2009, 02:48 PM
yes it lok like a tablet paint.. i have an intuos 1 bought used on ebay for 150€ some years ago.. i wonder to have a new one.. but they cost a lot :( but if u need a tablet i suggest you to buy an intuos or a bamboo, they are still good.. mine is working very wellthe only thing it would be perfetc is a tablet with monitor so i can draw like on paper and don't watch the monitor.. the funny thing it's that i bought it only for fun (becaue i like buying new thing for my pc) and i dodn't used it since i discovered it's perfect for mudbox or bodypaint :)

06 June 2009, 02:55 PM
AH! u use mudbox? how it is? Look good ,but i never try it.

06 June 2009, 02:58 PM
it's really cool, and even my brother that is 13 years old could use it.. it's really simple to use.. but you must have a tablet.. i don't even imagine how it is using it with a mouse.. mudbox it's simpler than zbrush.. zbrush it's a bit complicated to use.. it have a complicated interface

and about the tablet: now u can find the bamboo tablet in bigger electronic shops in italy.. i saw it in Grande mela (Comet) but it's pretty far from u.. try in euronics or something like that

PS: maybe for less spamming about something it's not related to the project you can contact me on my msn..

06 June 2009, 02:59 PM
Great start, nice job on the MGS4 gag as well, especially considering it was created using a mouse, as opposed to a tablet.

06 June 2009, 03:03 PM
TO Justame2002: well....many many tnx! :bowdown:

to DoubleP90: is simpler than Zbrush...interesting.. I wait a lot for a wacom...and late in this year (september?) i hope to buy one... Euronics may be the better place for me.
There are many stores like that in Florence where i live. PS: Very good ps3 model u did! compliments.

06 June 2009, 03:10 PM
if u have a limited budget you should buy a used tablet.. or a bamboo.. i bought it used and it's cool.. half of price.. and it's like a new one (only dirtier and maybe without warranty) i prefer an A4 size..
ohh please don't look my portfolio.. it's really old.. i have to submit some new renders because those are pretty old ^^

06 June 2009, 03:23 PM (

wow...i love it..!! IT JUST MEANS NOTHING!!!

06 June 2009, 03:24 PM
to DoubleP90: Old portfolio..? Old but cool! :cool:

06 June 2009, 03:38 PM
clean up a bit your incoming PM ^^ becuse i wanted to send you a PM and i can't :P i wanted to ask you.. what brush settings are u using for your sketches :)? are u using photoshop?

06 June 2009, 09:58 AM
to DoubleP90 : JUST CLEANED!:D

06 June 2009, 10:03 AM

06 June 2009, 10:10 AM (

eye candy...

06 June 2009, 10:12 AM
to DoubleP90: Good mornin' to u!
well...i take about a week to think,sketch,paint an making same putty maquette....basically I'll do some research and study...(the funnyer part of the work!)

06 June 2009, 10:17 AM
I usually serch the web first for some inspiration (in this case i didn't need to because the idea came up when i read the challenge) after that i visualize the idea and ty to sketch it, after the sketching i go in depression because i realize i can't draw and sketch and i don't work the day after i begin modeling etc :D

06 June 2009, 01:16 PM
yup yup OZ buddy has joined in!! :scream: great to see you once again bro!! :beer:

06 June 2009, 09:17 PM (

06 June 2009, 09:26 PM

06 June 2009, 09:31 PM

06 June 2009, 10:40 PM (

more dramatic lights

06 June 2009, 03:34 PM (

ummm...maybe I got an idea!

06 June 2009, 08:32 PM (

more details....the idea is taking shape.

06 June 2009, 08:54 PM (

Colour study.

06 June 2009, 09:40 PM (

heavy concepting....omg!!what is this!
The beer is keeping fx!

06 June 2009, 10:41 PM (

more ...thing?

06 June 2009, 10:41 AM
the blue character looks great!

06 June 2009, 10:45 AM
Cute little fella :) Good luck with this one :)

06 June 2009, 11:46 AM (

SO...things are taking shape...i quikly going to a comical/classic rather than original scene.
Something like a Smart/non samart secret agent that CANT keep secret his presence for all.

(i hope my english is enought decent to be undertandable)

forgive it!!

06 June 2009, 10:38 PM
to MVDB:THANK YOU MICHAEL!!! Is a twice joy read this from a character artist like u!!!:cool:

to MartinNielsen: Many many tnx! yeeeah ! cuute "explosive" thing...just take a look to the red version!! (just below!)

06 June 2009, 10:47 PM (

bombguy : red version

06 June 2009, 08:10 AM (

So it grows up! AGENT-00X (is so secret that he have no ID NUMBER!!!!!)

06 June 2009, 08:12 AM
Uh ! Many things around here !
Do we have to choose to give you the trail to follow or you already found it ?

06 June 2009, 08:31 AM
TO gpepper: OH! YOU! :cool: UR "Wereckicken" is still in my heart!!! What a cool character u did...! Well...everything u see...every element (that probably does not seem to have relation between them) is part of a common scene. So im now working on weld everything together...
anyway im very interested to listen to your and other opinion! every comment HELPS!!!:)

06 June 2009, 08:41 AM (

one of the ipotetic scenes...

06 June 2009, 09:13 AM
The bomb guy looks cool to me !
If you plane to do your composition as shown in the last sketch, it could be nice !
The secret agent with a 50-60's look it is soooo cool !

06 June 2009, 09:24 AM
YEAH!! I point to that kind of secret agent! U MADE ME HAPPY recognizing that 50/60 style!!!
I was not sure to reach the point. Im relatively new to the classic 60 cartoon style...and im not american (where that precise way of drawing stuff born) so i have a big cultural gap to fill.
Im looking at a Huge amout of classic 30-60 cominc and design stuff... however very happy u like the stuff at this poit! tnx a lot!! :bounce:

06 June 2009, 10:02 AM
great ideas man :) keep em coming!


06 June 2009, 10:31 AM
Absolutely hilarious :) Now I see the cute little "bomb-guy" theme.

06 June 2009, 12:22 PM (

Starting the work on AGENT-00X (I have still to build a solid character background) the first attemp on shoes.

06 June 2009, 03:41 PM (

Second attemp on shoes...far more better in my opinion...

06 June 2009, 06:44 AM
nice shoe :)

06 June 2009, 07:48 AM
Mouahah ! excellent shoes !
It is going to be pretty close to the concept !

06 June 2009, 03:39 PM (

This is the original concept of the bomb guy scene......enjoy

06 June 2009, 09:50 AM (

JARVIS GRANT...secretly...the agent 00X...
Character study.

06 June 2009, 11:08 AM (

third version of the shoe.

06 June 2009, 01:24 PM
Ow! Nice shoe! hehe :thumbsup:
I love this comic style! hehe! And the color study is going great. I liked the both color you did!

Best of luck!

06 June 2009, 02:39 PM (

Here there are some images about what kind of environment i want 4 my secret agente scene.
Ill'put more blu/green light on foregroud characters tu better contrast with them from the backgroud scene.

06 June 2009, 03:24 PM
i'm preffering shoe number 2 the most.

06 June 2009, 05:54 PM
Wow, Oz, so many options and ideas.....(the same reason I started late :) )
I like the 2nd pair of shoes too. There was something nice about the first pair, but I guess darker color will go better for the agent (?)

keep'm rolling!!

06 June 2009, 06:10 PM
I like the industrial environment , the agent style and the bomb little guy could be a nice add for the theme:beer:

06 June 2009, 06:40 PM
Hi Fabio,

You have a very nice stuff here:thumbsup:
keep it up :beer:

06 June 2009, 09:42 PM
Hi mate, great and funny ideas! love your drawings, good luck and bring it on!


06 June 2009, 11:22 PM
Great concepts, you have a very unique drawing style. Very personal. Good luck!

06 June 2009, 02:30 PM (

So...Im on detailing the backgound. I want a blend between a foundry and a rocket hangar.Here a concept in Wcolor of the rocket depot.

06 June 2009, 07:01 AM
I don't see many water colors, Pretty slick Oz, I'm a fan of the bomb guy. Very animated.

06 June 2009, 08:52 AM (

I LOVE ROKEZ!!! so I cant do anithing but start working on it.
First attemp..
My aim is to obtain a sort of Serious/non serious looking stuff.
The red roket is a good start point.

06 June 2009, 10:26 AM
hehe, going retro on us....
Wondering whats the setup....

Taking shape, good stuff

06 June 2009, 01:29 PM
Hey Fabio!!!
Your rocket rules!! hehe
I thought in one with biiig engine and a little body! I think like that should be more a non sirious version! What you think??


06 June 2009, 03:47 PM (

Here there are the foudry cauldrons.
I LOVE THIS KINF OF STUFF! When i've some free time (rarely...) Im usual to walk around Florence to take some picture of industrial areas and facility.
So thx to this challenge i can put together some of my passions in one single image!The image u see,is a light and colour test too.
Hope u like it..
ps:maybe the texturing is too realistic...not sure.

06 June 2009, 09:47 PM
Great start! Good luck!

06 June 2009, 11:46 PM (

EYE CANDY....and some more textures..

06 June 2009, 08:33 AM
to Neubius:TNX a Lot neubius! So.ok..shoe n2...Ill work on it! :wavey:

to MartinNielsen:hehehe cute and dangeroush uh!? Im still not sure if use it in the fianl scene or not. I have some ideas...mumble mumble..:curious:

to Lebowskii: TNX! there are still a lot to do! THat shoes are only pre-vids.

to gpepper: AW THANK YA! I love when 3d and concept mach!!!

to tunes: He he he Tnx!!! well...what i point to is to obtain a precise blend between real and toony...a kind of stile a little more realistic than shrek. But i got to say that ur suggestion gives me an help. Last night i try different type of HUGE,surely something "oversized" will came out! ;)

to smallone3d:ABout the shoe..Yes..i love the first pair but it was a bit to "gentlemanish"...
and YES AGAIN!! im going very retro styled looking stuff. Im still in a research of the funniest moment in a challenge...looking at many of my old stuff and taking some brand new (as 60's roket toys). Is a funny and incredible interesting preocess making research and melt so many ideas in one picture. :love:

to digitalinkmind: TNX!!! Im happy to read this! Industrial stuff ROX A LOT!! i love it! Ill put a lot of effort on environment...first time i did it in a challenge.

to Ataulfo: OH MAN! u are doing a great work on ur thread! Love the style of ur gals.Tnx poting here!!

06 June 2009, 01:38 PM

06 June 2009, 02:05 PM
Good Fabio! GOOOD!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

06 June 2009, 10:08 PM

06 June 2009, 10:14 PM
to medunecer : Hope u will in!! tnx a lot post here m8!

to zlux : TNX a lot!! still not the final version but looks like im going to the right direction!

to tunes: HEY!!! u are encouragin' me a lot!! TNX PAL! TNX REALLY!!!

to tyleen: Oh tnx tyleen!! I love put details on stuff im doin' sadly usually this drive me away from the entire vision of the image puttin' me in a big risk! HAVING NO TIME TO FINISH!!! :p

06 June 2009, 10:18 PM
I know what you mean, paying too much to detail sometimes holds me back from even finishing some entries i have wanted to put in contests.
This time around I made a larger sketch so i can focuse on everything all together then im hopeless cause then i usually go in and paint detailed till im finished. Well heres to hoping we both finish our entries in time, Cheers! :beer:

06 June 2009, 10:20 PM (

Before modelig the Agent00X head,i decided to make a bust...a maquette to use as proportion study. I think that in case of a pseudo-toon character it may be userful.
take a look of a very first step in making the maquette...only the paper base. ps: (forgive my PSEUDO TOON ENGLISH!!)

06 June 2009, 10:22 PM
to tyleen : Cheers to u m8! :beer:

06 June 2009, 02:52 AM
Hahaha! I love your ideas. This project is really starting to look awesome. Those shoes are hilarious! Can't wait to see more of this. :thumbsup: :buttrock:

06 June 2009, 05:07 AM
So you are experiencing well,

like your concepts and the Bomb Guy!

let see where will you go

good luck

06 June 2009, 09:05 PM (

More detalis on rocket...
At last i've found the balance i was looking for.
That particulare blend between real and toony...Making the roket shorter than before and putting a single BIG engine at the base of it.The engine touch the ground making the rocket looking a bit clumsy ..Hope u like it.

06 June 2009, 08:09 PM
Great work on the rocket Oz, it has a great retro feel to it.

06 June 2009, 09:24 PM (

That's the cutest thing I've seen all week, I think you can just enter that as your final image. I'd vote for it. You can't see it but the red one's holding a knife about to backstab the blue one, thus making it spy-oriented.

06 June 2009, 09:30 PM
Oz, that is looking mighty nice! I am curious still for the background :)

06 June 2009, 11:14 PM (

awwwnn...I've finished the second step on maquette...looks like the guy are coming out after all.
Oh gosh how im tired!! ned to get a coffee now!

07 July 2009, 06:36 PM
wow ! that's cool that u're actually building a maquette to previsualize your character! sweet work! good luck!

07 July 2009, 09:01 PM
Nice work with the model man. Look's fantastic. Can't wait to see some more.

07 July 2009, 10:35 PM
Hey mate! I just love your testrenders, good job. Ill keep eye on your thread for sure :thumbsup: keep it up

07 July 2009, 12:57 PM (

Last week was a nightmare...a lot of work to do...ere and there around I was not in my studio to work at the secretagetimage. u common that traveling is good to think and eventually draw..(when u are in train as i was ^_^ )
So I was wondering if put or not a female figure in neat contrast wiht the secret agent hero...I imagine a very thin girl....something like this...

07 July 2009, 07:04 PM
Nice updates! I like the rocket a lot! Keep it going!

07 July 2009, 07:15 PM
Great OZ, I'm spying your UP ^^

07 July 2009, 08:34 PM
Hey Fabio,

Really great thread. I enjoyed a lot all of your concepts and images. Like the cartoon style on your designs, great! Waiting for more updates! Cheers!! :beer:

07 July 2009, 09:39 PM
Hey Fabio!
As always you come with great ideas! hehe
I love the style of the woman and i think it's a good idea to have her in the scene.
It's a HERO Secret Agent! =D

Keep up!!! :applause:

07 July 2009, 10:42 PM
TNX A LOT GUYS! U MAKE ME HAPPY!! It was an hard week...Last one i mean..and ur words help...Tomorrow ill answer one by one! tonight im a bit..hem...ummm...out..

07 July 2009, 10:48 PM (

she's so pretty uh?

07 July 2009, 10:53 PM
She is PERFECT!! hahahaha

Nice one! =D

07 July 2009, 01:05 AM (

Here again...detailing the maquette...(prefinal)...
I changed a lot of little areas on it.

07 July 2009, 10:23 AM
Hello man, well i must say WOW!..haha, i really think the maquette is going very good, the style on the characters is going to work nicely, hope the lady doesnt miss the style once u make the 3d version, this couple will look lovely :buttrock: :buttrock: , ill be watching your progress man.

07 July 2009, 01:57 PM (

This is a digital maquette of the "Bond Beauty"...The model is simpler than agent 00X,so i did it directly in 3d.
This piece has been done
for proportion and colour study purpose.Im pretty satisfied about this first attemp.Im now reconsidering various aspect of the final image,in function of the "Beauty" presence...

07 July 2009, 02:15 PM
very cool stuff Fabio. I absolutely loved that little bomb guy and this girl got a very interesting style !!
it's fun to see that you're working in different mediums to get your ideas out, looking forward to see more !

07 July 2009, 02:55 PM
excellent character. I love this girl even I would have like a bigger picture

07 July 2009, 08:03 PM
So the process will go wild, the girl become so nice as everyone said, your doing some art here!

good luck

07 July 2009, 09:22 PM
Awesome work again and again. I love the latest bond babe. Great Style.


07 July 2009, 03:35 AM
hey OZ, man the maquetes (digital and real) are looking really nice... great job man.. really great skills with the clay.. I like the style you are going for.. I am looking forward to the final piece to watch all the elements come together...the bg and characters...good luck man.. cheers..

07 July 2009, 02:41 PM ( the girls seem to like to everyone! (oh happyness!)
Today i have started the final model 4 the blond beauty...
Here's the first 4 steps...

07 July 2009, 03:57 PM (
