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 June 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!

Hi neville,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

06 June 2009, 06:24 PM
nice improvisation dude! :thumbsup:

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

06 June 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 June 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 June 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 June 2009, 09:33 AM

06 June 2009, 11:32 AM (

Hope to see some more incredible 2d stuff once again :)

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

07 July 2009, 11:44 AM

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

07 July 2009, 03:39 PM

Hey Neville,

That Hbike is looking damn good !! :D Great forms and shapes for it, and the texture and color process is looking awesome. Like a lot your pin-up concept for this challenge, pure magic :D
Cheers my friend! :beer:

07 July 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!
