Hello guys and gals. My concept is about an inter-galactic agent who searching for a person which has containing important information in her side.

On his searching he crash landed to a moon close to her native planet. My scene will visualize this unfortunate crash landing.

06-14-2009, 04:31 PM
My so called concept drawing looked so funny to me - I couldn't helped myself not to post it :D

06-14-2009, 04:36 PM
nice concept, hope he gets of the moon safely

This is environment I'm planing to use. Nearly finished. I need a bit more light and material test on it.

Also worked a bit on the planet today.

Nice concept! Intergalactic secret agent, I love it! :) Don't worry about your concept sketch, it serves it's purpose. Do you know what your main character will look like yet? I'm curious to see what an intergalactic secret agent looks like! ;) Best of luck with the challenge!

06-14-2009, 05:04 PM
Dunno about this. I like the angle, but it doesn't scream "secret agent" right now. I think if you can find a way to put more interest into the image, perhaps give us a sense that the agent is being pursued, after being shot down. Something like that. Get into the flavour of this comp a bit more -- maybe a bladerunner kind of angle can work.

Thanks mate! I have no idea what I'm doing LOL I think I'll leave that idea for another time. I'll go with something simpler - like a cool car, a girl and a gun :D

True. I have another concept - I think I'll go with it this time. Many thanks for the comment.

Alright friends. I changed my mind into a female secret agent. With a cool car and gun. I'm thinking something stylish with some sort of cinematic lighting.

06-14-2009, 06:32 PM
Michael Sormann's work is a great inspiration as always for stylish figures, colors and lights. And also he was my reason to start learning Maya besides Eric Hanson.


06-14-2009, 09:57 PM
Michael Sormann was a huge inspiration for me too early on . Good luck !

Started to modeling the handgun.

06-16-2009, 07:49 PM
Nice idea Friend :cool: ........the gun is looking good so far ......keep going :wip:

06-21-2009, 07:41 AM
Well after a long time of consideration I decided to go with my own very first idea - with a lot of sci-fi elements included. There will be a lot of guns, cars and girls out there and I'll put my best to my entry as far as I can. Sorry in advance for the people who will not get the secret agent feeling on it but I'll stick to my own ideas and tools.

Updates next.

This is the small size version of my huge background planet. Sort of final render - of course I'll tweak it when scene it done.

This will be the ship wreck in the middle area of the scene. I'll see how it will look after finishing the texturing. Also planing to paint over some detail to it after final render.

06-25-2009, 04:36 AM
Hey Keremowsky
Glad to see you here, nice concept, the Wall-E environments could be a good reference for this, also the space ship is coming out nicely

btw can you sent the pic of sitting girl?

Edit: missed the environment, it looks really good, keep it up

good luck for you

I'm planing to change the composition a bit. Working on that character now.

Meet my little robot agent called Lambaliradyo. Still stuff to add tou. Some shield parts maybe, some nuts and bolts - and antennas of course :D

That's the pose of my robo-agent! He will hold a listening device in his hand - also a headphone on his head. I didn't rigged the character just moved and rotated the parts to get the pose.

I decided to re-model my robot agent. With some neat and better details. Cause no one interests in my entry - I have right to make no sense :P

07-18-2009, 05:22 PM
Hold on there, m8y! Never think your stuff is uninteresting to some oddballs here and there :) Everything you create at least is interesting to yourself, right? And scrolling through your list of images on this project so far has some very entertaining ones. I liked the one with the alien planet life and the large moon behind it incredibly enticing. Like a nice pocket cover image for a Jack Vance novel.

07-18-2009, 06:40 PM
@sreiche Hey mate - thanks for your heartening words! I'll surely keep it up - attending to make a funny entry :scream:

Kinda finished the modeling of my robo-agent character "Lambaliradyo" - this is low poly version tough. I'll convert him to sub-div next.

Looking for some cheap lighting solutions with planes and surface shaders on them.

You don't know me guys - I'm a very cheap person :P

Started to add lights and materials. These are mia material x - I've used presets and played with them a little bit.

07-22-2009, 07:36 PM
Hey Kerem,

Cool concept, like a lot your idea :D The background for your image looks great!!, very sci-fi, cool touch! The model of the robot is looking great too. Maybe you can work a bit on the robotīs expression, more like a concentrated attitude to hear and search, only a comment :) looking forward for more updates! Cheers!! :D

I think I'm done with his materials. Might need some tweaks when together with the scene. Next I need to model and urban environment.

That's final version of my agent character. I enhanced materials and lights a bit. I noticed that high quality renders with Mental Ray taking a lot of time on my computer :(

Started to work on the environment. This is roughly finished the modeling and I'm planing to start to work on the materials. I'm also planing to add more detail and objects when overall texture mapping finished. I'm better with that kind of back & forth workflow I think.

Alright I'm trying to put this all together. I'm troubled that doing something beautiful in Maya is still very hard thing for me :-/

Current maps looks like this with render camera angle.

I rendered this with lowest quality for speed sake - please keep in mind that there's no anti aliasing at all.

looking so cool ..........keep it up :beer:

07-31-2009, 07:53 PM
Thank you mate! I know the renders look weird because there's no anti aliasing at all right now - for time sake.

Layered aniso materials acted weird with AO. I also didn't liked the previous colors that much.

But I'm almost there... I can feel it.

08-04-2009, 08:08 PM
Spend a lot of time with proper lighting and GI setup. Putted it on final render and currently rendering it over 29 hours - resolution is 3920x2205. Hope it will be finished in 4-5 days before the deadline :argh:

08-07-2009, 11:36 AM
Still rendering after 80 hours... Wish they extend the deadline a bit. :deal:

Software: CINEMA 4D

Story: Lambaliradyo is an intergalactic Secret Roboagent. The problem here on his last mission he was not so secret while listening to other agents conversation... Which is very risky. We can only hope that he find a way out before they turn him into a billycan.

08-08-2009, 09:58 PM

Here is my final at 1600pix
