Intervain | Thaldir | mdavid :

man it's great to see you guys once again!! :love:

i was thinking it about something sexy .. lethal .. try hard to add that mystery ...
even the title popped in my head ... "femme fatale" ... now i've got to turn into a spy thing .. some situation :hmm:
yikes :argh: .. all these thoughts swirling in my head :lightbulb

06-13-2009, 07:06 PM (

i did a little thinking and thought of something i've not tried before ..
this may be one of those typical sci fi stills .. but i want to give it a go and see how it works out :)

cheers everyone!

good luck to all!

06-13-2009, 07:48 PM

Hi neville,

Nice to see you in another CGChallenge.
keep it up dude :beer:

06-17-2009, 03:55 PM
yeah I'm glad you go for that one! Looking forward to it:arteest:

06-18-2009, 09:40 AM (

started off directly with the background :) ... design may or may not change, i guess, once i get the elements in place, certain things will be altered ..
i'm going for a metallic, glossy, bit stylized look .. ( floor merging with the background )

cheers everyone!

back to work :)

06-18-2009, 10:16 AM
Great start with a classic-feel background, it reminds me somewhat of the 'view through a gun muzzle' of the Bond movies.

Can't help but imagine Aishwarya Rai as the super agent, that lady is my definition of 'femme fatale' ;).

06-18-2009, 10:50 AM
that seem to become really design :)
Maybe a little bit sexy no ?

06-18-2009, 11:59 AM
freakin amazing steel glaze man!:applause:

06-18-2009, 12:26 PM
nicely rendered, can't wait to see more in.

06-18-2009, 04:29 PM
I embrace you and wish you good luck in this journey :)

06-18-2009, 04:40 PM
Oooh Shiny:D
Looks like it will be a cool scene.
Good luck man :)

06-18-2009, 06:18 PM
Hi good to see u in this competition. waiting for more updates. I am busy making few updates too. he he he:)

06-18-2009, 06:32 PM
Metallic shading in 2d? This just HAVE to be nwiz working :) Great style as always.

06-18-2009, 06:34 PM
looks cool to me, the background brings images of bond and surprisingly the claustrophobic feel of aliens maybe? very cool.

06-18-2009, 06:43 PM
Nice idea, taking the classics back. Brilliant! Good luck man!

06-19-2009, 10:06 AM
Some OO7 look for the background !

06-19-2009, 01:15 PM
I like this background, it definitely draws my eyes in. I want to see more on the character now...oh I can't wait
good stuff .
Keep going

06-19-2009, 01:18 PM
In one word... SPECTACULAR! U did it everytime amazing looking to ur works and how it grows up.

06-20-2009, 07:04 AM
Hello Friend! I wanna wish you luck in the challange! you are one of my fav Artist here in CGS!
I'll try to follow your entry with pleasure!
Take care mate!

06-20-2009, 08:06 AM
Hey thanks for the links on my thread, things seem to be moving along smoothly over here. You definitely have a nack for shiny objects so I might need some input on my car once I start doing the reflections. Good luck!

06-20-2009, 05:27 PM
Hi Neville! :wavey:

Fantastic start --can't wait to see more of your femme fatale! You really know how to play on our anticipation! More so because we KNOW the results will be jaw-dropping. Great background, too. Now.... back to work with you! LOL


06-20-2009, 05:47 PM
sam4grafix ~ thanks a lot bhaiya! :p me still have a long way to go :cry:

Thaldir ~ spot on bro! i deliberately worked out the 'bond' theme kind of like showing .. she's the successor or in the other words .. the next bond! .. as for aishwarya! .. " :eek: " wow!

platernity ~ thanks for droppin by dude! .. yup .. in a way .. sexy is what i'm aiming for :D

Neubius ~ thanks bro!

Golpe ~ dude!! where have you been?? missd ya man! i still remember those times during 'eon!' unforgettable!

dboydesign ~ thanks dude!

nandlaskar ~ good to see you too dude, at least you posting updates on a regular basis, i've become so lazy past couple of months :/ .. that's why me hoping to finish this on time ...

MartinNielsen ~ hehehehehe .. thanks a lot bro!

opentarget ~ bond it is! .. not sure about the aliens tho .. but that irritating thing in the centre of the background will be blocked for sure ..

Madness-of-Hamlet ~ phew!! i'm glad you saw it that way .. coz for the outfit .. i don't think i'm going for something extremely high tech .. even the hover bike will be designed according to a ducati .. minus the wheels, plus the thrusters ( partially or fully hidden ) ...
let's see how it works out ...

gpepper ~ right said bro! ... 007 with a slightly different style :D

smallone3d ~ me with u dude! ... right after the bike is done, the character is next! .. don't want to leave this hangin over ...

OZ ~ really need your encouragement dude! :love: thanks a million!

Greatto ~ i'd really like that bro! .. how are things with u?? it's been long ...
have you joined the challenge? .. you should! .. it'll be just like ol times! :D
cheers and take care of yourself!

CircusRobot ~ i'm very glad the links helped you! .. i'd be most happy to help you out with the reflections! .. i'll post a link in your thread ..
all the best dude!

HEyyyyy Lyn!! :bounce: :scream:

thanks a million for the push! will be needing it from you! :p
me will be posting a new update in a short while .. just shape blocks .. but pretty important for the design!

bless you gal!

06-20-2009, 05:55 PM (

blocking out shapes for the hoverbike ..

i'm pretty doubtful about keeping it cropped right now ... i think i want to show it like it's kinda far and well behind the agent ... (reducing it's size) more so .. it'll help the spiral interior look more wider than usual ...

what do you think guys??

next up .. shading :)

06-20-2009, 06:20 PM
nice improvisation dude! :thumbsup:

06-20-2009, 06:24 PM

06-23-2009, 07:51 PM
Yeah, we really have some similarities dude :D Anyway, keep goin!

06-25-2009, 04:48 AM
Hey Neville,

That background looks awesome :D Like a lot the hoverbike idea, really great sci-fi touch (and cool vehicle) for your concept! Waiting for more updates my friend. Cheers!! :beer:

06-27-2009, 08:12 AM (

shading in progress ...

i've scaled the Hbike down a bit so it doesnt appear too close or else too massive for the scene ...

net connection problems at home :(
slowly updating work at the cafe :[
sigh ...

06-27-2009, 08:28 AM
I believe, at some point, u were abducted by aliens and they installed a 3d program into you.. man, how u shade and render ur art is beyond my understanding! Love it so far and I cant wait to see more from you! Best of luck my friend :)

06-27-2009, 09:33 AM

07-03-2009, 06:32 AM (

color process ...

this is going to be rather tricky ... Hbike should'nt blend into the background ... for which it may need some darkening ..

cheers everyone!!

good luck!

back soon ...

07-04-2009, 05:03 AM
Hey, Neville. I'm glad to see you're in this challenge. Best of luck with the entry -- you're off to a great start. (I particularly like the burnished metal look of the background that you posted).

07-04-2009, 11:02 AM
Great progress, Neville! I already want to order one! LOL

07-04-2009, 11:44 AM

The curves on that bike are looking sexy! :arteest:
Great work!

Cheers my friend! :beer:

07-07-2009, 07:07 AM
Hi Neville,

Great to see you participating again :)
Love your concept, and like very much watching your work in progress. It's like watching a butterfly coming out: difficult to see at the start what it's going to be like and being mesmerized by the end result :D

Good luck my friend!
