"those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it", and add another unfinishd entry on their shoulders :)

and as always i'm dumb to start with the character design before having an idea for the final image.. well, time will tell..
and i will try to find something that makes him more special than atm.. but for now, back to real work :)

06 June 2009, 02:38 PM
awesome and original as always - totally following your thread :)

06 June 2009, 03:23 PM
wow awesome style you got there!

06 June 2009, 08:17 PM
As always your Work is Amazing....... good luck and Keep going :wip:

06 June 2009, 08:56 PM
Cool design, I look forward to the concept

06 June 2009, 09:05 PM
Looks badass. How long did it take you to put that spy together? Love the style.

06 June 2009, 07:33 AM
thanks a lot everyone, your comments motivate me to keep thinking about this!

the cgpart took max 4 hours, mixing photos, tweaking proportions and painting. i used the top left sketch as a base but found the 2 heads a bit to much. but i'll give them another try as i find the idea funny.

06 June 2009, 08:08 AM
Yes Anders ! you are in !
Cool to see you around !
You will bring your crazy style here !

I will follow this thread with great attention !
The sketch is already great !

good luck

06 June 2009, 09:16 AM

06 June 2009, 05:20 AM
"those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it", and add another unfinishd entry on their shoulders :)

lol and there i was almost ready to join again too :)

06 June 2009, 06:21 AM
Great style you have, Keep going!

06 June 2009, 09:24 PM
maxspider3000, tonytrout, NinjaA55N, newmain,
thanks a lot!!

I'm still thinking about the environment. got some ideas in mind but nothing on paper yet, I'll keep thinking a bit..

thanks man! ain't you joining this time around?

super nice avatar!!

haha crazy as always, I'm glad to see you around!

i like your style to, now post something in that thread of yours!

06 June 2009, 10:52 PM
Great style:thumbsup:

06 June 2009, 06:16 PM
How dare you coming back without finishing a single challenge!!!???
hehe glad to see you man! Looking great so far!
How have you been?

06 June 2009, 03:14 PM
really nice style, very cartoony. Are you going for a 3d entry, 2d or a mix of both?.
Great work so far

06 June 2009, 05:55 PM
Cool style, great sketch!

The best of luck!

06 June 2009, 06:22 PM
Fellah with the funny characters.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Keep it up and show us more.

06 June 2009, 08:37 AM
Are you going for a 3d entry, 2d or a mix of both?.

you are honestly assuming he'll finish ????? :surprised


06 June 2009, 10:19 AM
"those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it", and add another unfinishd entry on their shoulders :)Hooray! :D

06 June 2009, 10:44 AM
lol and there i was almost ready to join again too :)

How dare you coming back without finishing a single challenge!!!???

you are honestly assuming he'll finish ????? :surprised:D

It seems that everyone is really happy to see you joining ! This time you can't do anything but finishing your entry. If you don't, do not ever appear in any contest in the future... :deal:

thanks man! ain't you joining this time around?

Yes I did but in video !

06 June 2009, 12:04 PM
thanks man!

haha :) i dare because your "finish or die" threats has always been fake!
otherwise, everything is going great, i have nothing to complain about except we're getting older every day :)
now get back to your awesome project with Kory, i wanna see more!!

it will be a mix of 3d and 2d. or in worst case(if i don't have time) just 2d.


right back at you! i've been a fan of your works since the post apocalyptic challenge!

:D grrrr...

looks like you finally learnt? :))

If you don't, do not ever appear in any contest in the future...


06 June 2009, 12:43 PM
looks like you finally learnt?Pffft - I've learned nothing. Expect a dissapointing thread full of broken promises some time soon!

Seriously though, if the challenges only give us/me a glimpse of new personal work from you then they're well worth it. :)

Now get cracking on that idea!

06 June 2009, 04:36 PM
Good to see you in again :). :beer:

Now, finish it this time, ok? :deal:

06 June 2009, 07:02 PM
You're really good at doing funny characters :) Good luck.

06 June 2009, 11:57 AM
am really inspired by seeing this.....looks like we gonna make a funny ones ;)

06 June 2009, 05:02 PM
thanks man, it makes me happy to hear!

hey azazel,
long time since last! i hope all is well? cool that these challenges still bring us "old" folks together somehow!
and no, i won't ask you to join as u might win again!! ;)

Martin and Karim,
thanks a lot!!

here's another pointless character design as i don't have a good, original idea yet.. time will tell, or not.. ideas are welcome.. (

06 June 2009, 05:05 PM
Haha! I love all of your concepts, but that gum ball gun is the best. I think there's a lot of potential for that one.

06 June 2009, 05:16 PM
^^ 2nded. I love the style you work in mate. Really cool.

06 June 2009, 08:16 PM
All is well. Lots of work, not much personal art - mountain biking instead. But can't resist the challenge from time to time - like this time. I'm joining in :).

And I do intend to finish ...

06 June 2009, 09:00 PM
Hi Anders. Nice to see you making another great unfinished challenge.
I 'd rather like the old guy sketch than the boy one.

06 June 2009, 09:04 PM
funny characters,hehe, keep it up!!!:love:

06 June 2009, 12:26 PM
Love the kid with the gumball cannon. Hope you can do something with him. Maybe like a "men in black" sort of theme. Candy is the weapon of choice against evil vegetables from outer space!

06 June 2009, 05:32 PM
hate ya ...

06 June 2009, 06:01 PM
very cute character :). looking for more updates:thumbsup:

06 June 2009, 08:57 PM
thanks a lot everyone !!! you all keep me motivated with ur kind words!

this is just a rough, but as it might just be an idea thats going to the trash, i'll let it like this for the moment.
not the most original idea, but it would be a fun pic to do in 3d(lots of characters :P )
with the mosnter tentacles running deaper into the pic, and a design pass on everthing.. (

06 June 2009, 05:10 PM
hmm..... for some reason that makes me think sushi

06 June 2009, 10:03 PM (

yes when u mention it.. strange :D

another rough. my biggest concern with this idea is that it's hard to understand and/or that it's not very "secret agent". can anyone confirm my suspicions?

07 July 2009, 08:45 AM
my biggest concern with this idea is that it's hard to understand and/or that it's not very "secret agent".

you are probably onto a winner then :)

at least it has tentacles, a guy in a hat, and a chicken on a fishing pole. :bounce:

do think the tentacle thing should be being distracted from doing something diabolical though, at the moment it looks like he is calling the taxi, give him a half dozen blood covered chain saws or something...oh and u forgot the mandatory insane scientist sitting on his head in some sort of controlling device with too many levers.

07 July 2009, 01:20 PM
I vote for 4 !

07 July 2009, 07:46 AM
Agent Brian,
you're good spotting stuff. i didn't notice the taxi wave(ot the sushi) but u're right, looks stange :)
if i go with that idea i'll dfinitely change that. thanks for all the ideas!

u prefer v4 over v5 as well? thanks for your input.

a new rough idea.
i think this direction is a more obvious secret agent theme than the previous ideas but maybe i'll try putting him in a rooftop in a Parisian alley instead of central park.

but i like the challenge this idea offers with all the trees. and i would rather do the little kid in 3d than the man.
the mood would definitely change to something more dramatic once in 3d. if i go this direction will say. (

07 July 2009, 08:28 AM
hi fellah,nice update,as you said it's quit difficult to find a good idea,but i think you are in the good way,i like your last image,looks interesting,the character looks cool too.
good luck !!!

07 July 2009, 10:55 AM
Looks cool, like the last pict

Secret Agent Entry: AGENT (

07 July 2009, 11:09 AM
Wow anders so much colors, that will be interesting in 3d

07 July 2009, 11:31 AM
5 is nice, but doing nice tress is harder than nice buildings...

07 July 2009, 08:29 AM
I really like the idea of the kid up high with only a gum-ball/water pistol type weapon, but looking incredibly serious.

I also really like the idea of having him on a roof top - like he's in a place no kid should really be.

You could then have it so he's either about to attack a 'silly' target - ice cream truck, man selling balloons, teacher walking to their car, a big bully/thug type kid, or a child supervillian (i.e - sinister looking little kid stroking a white kitten, kid bodyguards...etc).


You could make it that the target is something disproportionately serious, like the president/mayor/prime ministers car (again, surrounded by body guards), a truck carrying a nuclear warhead, or the entrance to a giant fortified building with heavily armed guards...etc.


None of the above!


07 July 2009, 02:14 PM
dissar, xeni, Vincent, thanks a lot!!!

yes, but it would be a "challenge" to try the trees ;) i'll try another idea before starting anything serious though!

great tips!!! i love reading inputs like that. it gave me lots of ideas and inspiration to try the rooftop idea. thanks a lot!

07 July 2009, 11:49 PM
hi there fellah...we meet again! concept again....i love the seems so funny...keep going my friend!

07 July 2009, 11:57 PM
Wow Amazing monsters with tentacles, that's
cool !!

07 July 2009, 05:16 PM
Wow, I love the colors and the composition in 5, definitely my favorite between 3, 4 and 5.

07 July 2009, 05:30 PM
Cool ideas :) The last one looks especially attractive with soft and warm colors. Wish you good luck!

07 July 2009, 07:58 PM
thanks guys !!

here's a rough block of the rooftop idea. would probably be funnier to have kids torturing a cat as AJ suggested. (

but now it's time to choose one of the 4 ideas and i wonder which idea to concentrate on?? any help is much appreciated


07 July 2009, 08:17 PM
Hey Fellah !

No John around this time ? :D

Incredible concepts this time again ! That's kinda annoying to watch you popping you with the funniest ideas around everytime :)

Anyway , I vote for the kid in the park ( 5 ? ) Deeper perspective , colorful (which I really like in your art) , and way more original here around !
Yep definitely !

cheers ,


07 July 2009, 07:51 AM
hmmm the cat thing has potential .... perhaps one of the kids carrying a fish in a bowl mastermind :)

kinda like the perspective in the alley idea....will raise my hand for colourful trees all the same

07 July 2009, 09:33 AM
like this style :applause:

very emotional and fool of light

07 July 2009, 09:39 AM
My vote for the park concept. Very colorfull and good perspective point :thumbsup:

07 July 2009, 09:58 AM
maaan, it's been long since i last saw any of your stuff.
really love the colors and moods of your pieces.
i think you should discard the super-soaker boy and stick with the sphere guy. hehhee jk.

looking forward to follow this.


07 July 2009, 10:31 AM
Hi Fellah,nice update,your new comp looks cool,keep it up:D

07 July 2009, 10:59 AM
nice work on the renders. looks like everything is really coming together for ya. :applause:

07 July 2009, 11:03 AM
Dimitri, Irina, Younes , Jack.
thanks a lot for your kind words!!!

haha you still remember! John checks in and out but he is to busy with work(I should be to, as we're working together :) ) to hang around like before.
thanks for your input, it helped me choose concept. i will go with the park idea!

cool idea! maybe i can have the cat scenario in the park. the only downside to that is that it's more work and I've little time for this.

haha :) long time since i saw personal stuff from myself as well. there's been lots of work recently. (nothing to complain about :) )

thanks again for all your inputs!

I'll stick to the park idea but might take ideas from the alley pic, such as the perspective and maybe have a team of kids doing something to a cat or another kid instead of the 2 "dealers".
depends on how much time I'll have.

here's the update, blocking in. i blacked out the parts that i haven't really worked on at all. (
trees will get more details, more flowers and leaves, branches, details to city etc.. but it's a start.
comments/ideas are ofcourse welcome

07 July 2009, 06:11 PM
Great !!

The 2 concepts merged great ! The kids tourmenting a cat is a good idea , or maybe a mean ice cream kart/balloon seller , or simply a little girl instead of the cat making the mission more important.

Anyway great stuff for now , looking forward for more !

haha you still remember! John checks in and out but he is to busy with work(I should be to, as we're working together :) ) to hang around like before.
sad ... but I always has a giant grin while eating Miel Pops at 4 am :D

cheers ,


07 July 2009, 06:19 PM
Very beautiful atmosphere!.I already love it.

07 July 2009, 06:55 AM
thanks, it makes me happy to hear

ah yes why didn't i think of having a few guys mocking a girl. that's a good and simple idea, i'll keep it in mind!

07 July 2009, 07:12 AM
Hey Fellah, nice entry, you know colors well, i want to follow too

good luck

07 July 2009, 08:24 AM
You always have the best ideas and the most funny designs! Love the colours of the park idea too!
You must have a really funny and ingenious person at home to discuss your ideas with! :-D

07 July 2009, 08:34 AM
thanks man! hope i won't disappoint you.

You must have a really funny and ingenious person at home to discuss your ideas with!
ingenious, i don't know. sexy, yes.


07 July 2009, 08:45 AM
Love your colors and your workflow is really precise. Good stuff!

07 July 2009, 11:30 AM
when the f... do you find time to do that... :)

this thread was fun to read...

07 July 2009, 06:50 PM
thanks for ze comments !
charles, wtf does "pouet" mean?

3d test of the boy, hair is painted. (

didn't realise the image challenge had a tighter deadline than the video one and i'm going on vacation in a week.. shit.

07 July 2009, 07:15 PM
Hi Fellah,really nice character!good job mate!keep it up!!:thumbsup:

07 July 2009, 07:56 PM
Hi man,
Very good Character and expression!
It makes me remind Johny English!, but this have more personality by far!

Good Luck!

-You are welcome to see my drawings!


07 July 2009, 12:10 PM
very cool !

make him animatable ;) who knows

07 July 2009, 03:02 PM
yeah just move it over to the video challenge :D

Looking great man!

07 July 2009, 09:49 PM
nice character...the hair is really nice...

07 July 2009, 09:42 AM
ROckin'cool boy model m8!
U are a true master!! U got a PIXAR quality character here!:buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

07 July 2009, 06:25 PM
Hey Anders !

Ahah , that kid awesome ! His expression is priceless .

Perhaps you could add some rubber band to hold his gumballs pack !

I sincerly hope you will find some time to finish it !

cheers ,


07 July 2009, 06:31 AM
That is the cutest agent I've seen in a while! Everything looks great so far, I'm a huge fan of your style - good luck in finishing it ;)

07 July 2009, 02:58 PM
thanks a lot man!

having more character than that guy is quite hard, not sure my character is up to that level. but I'm glad you think so, thanks! :)

"can't wait to see him animated!!"

don't shot yourself(and Kory) in the foot! ;)


thanks old friend!

thansk for the idea, i will add some suspenders to hold that gum pack up, as seen in the concept of the boy.
i hope I'll have time to finish to.. not sure as I'll go on vacation in a few days, but I'm doing my best.

thanks! I'm glad to hear that from you. pity you didn't enter this time!

here's an update to the BG.. need to work on those BG buildings and the foreground.. so much to do so little time :( (

07 July 2009, 03:09 PM
WOw anders that's really great. I hope to have many colors on my challenge but I really fell like a little boy eyes wide open when I see your colors.
Just to make it better again, I would say to work the white reflect on the water to have maybe more little points of lights instead of a big mass.
Oh and is that 3d, 2d or a mix (for the grass for example) ?

07 July 2009, 03:11 PM
Oh shit. That's good. :bounce:. Carry on :)

07 July 2009, 03:21 PM
thanks friends!

good comments Vincent, i'll work on those reflections.

all is 3d atm, but i'll do the final touch ups in photoshop.

07 July 2009, 03:52 PM
Ouaouh ! Awesome style and colors...favorite one as well...


07 July 2009, 04:15 PM
hi Fellah,really nice updates,awesome!
keep it up,im sure you will make a wonderfull image,specialy with your cute SPY character


07 July 2009, 06:43 PM
beautyfull environment...the style is nice...the color combinationb is just great

07 July 2009, 01:54 PM
very warm and nice colors. amaizing composition. can't wait to see the finished one.

WOODAN ..... the secret agent (

07 July 2009, 04:28 PM (

thanks a lot guys!!

i need your help on this one. which composition do you prefer, vertical or horizontal?

07 July 2009, 04:43 PM
Well , for me , it's the vertical one . no contest.

Altough it appears you paned down the cam a bit which I find kind of sad . Some extra room on the top gives the depth ...

Top notch work

cheers ,


07 July 2009, 06:48 PM
thanks for your help Zapan!! it gave me some ideas and my girlfriend helped me even further. here's the result: (

after all it's the agent who's supposed to be in focus, but i'm not sure it's better?

07 July 2009, 07:54 PM
Well anders about the young boy pose I would say I prefer him seen from the back. It depends of course of the focus you want to give. Even he's the hero of your picture he wants to show us the little characters who will be in the park. Moreover if you want to focus on him like this last picture that will be really difficult in term of colors/luminosity. You'll have to make him a little bright if he looks to us, well lighted, but you will no more have any depth with your superb park nand his bright and saturated colors. If he's from the back he will be very dark with maybe a beautiful rimlight and you'll have great contrast. But of course we won't see his face... MAybe that's possible to keep everything but, according to me, it will be very difficult. And well that's a challenge, so maybe that's your challenge :)

edit : but if you have no time to make the 2 other characters, keep him like this.

07 July 2009, 08:13 PM
nice are working with 3dmax?...or what is that?

07 July 2009, 08:34 PM
thanks for your input! your thoughts are the same as my worries.
if this was not a "secret agent" challenge the decision would have been easy, he would look at the dealers.
but it's hard to kill your darlings.. so if i would keep the look-at-camera pose maybe i can make him dark with a rim, even if he's looking at us. but.. hm.. well i might try both, it's just a little twist to the body.

yes you're right, rendered in max/vray(kid with hair was rendered in lightwave as i didn't have him exported at that time). models in lightwave.

07 July 2009, 12:20 AM
maybe you can switch the roles,you can have the spy in the garden with another person(a friend or boss or something) and have a bad guy on the foreground menacing the hero,this way you will have the focus on your lovely character!!
i hope you will find a solution soon,even with your actual it's looking nice.
good luck!!:thumbsup:

07 July 2009, 12:21 AM
Sooooooo cute!

07 July 2009, 01:36 PM
the deal could have been between 2 squirrels on a tree, dealing nuts ;)))

they would have been close to the camera...with the kid in the back :))

with the same cool BG

my 2 cents !!!

07 July 2009, 08:58 PM
This is absolutely horrible;) Keep rockin' Fellah!!!

I don't know if baby was serious or not, but his idea rocks, the squirrels that is.

07 July 2009, 11:13 AM
thanks for the idea!! but i decided to go with "AJ's" idea about he bad boys mocking a poor cat.

thanks friend!

as u know i find it a great idea.
i had a big think about it on the train but i felt it would make the agent a bad guy more than an agent, shooting little squirrels.
and the kids gum pack and all would barely be visible. but maybe it can make a nice animation some day ;)

thanks mate, long time no speak! everything fine with you? glad to see you here!


here's the idea with the boys, thanks to AJ and my girlfriend for ideas to this. (

I'll make them in 3d(rough) just to get the perspective/lighting and then paint in the rest. time is ticking and I'll leave for Croatia on Saturday(or Friday, no time to remember :) )

07 July 2009, 11:30 AM (

wahahahahahahahaha that is so cruel :D

albeit i have seen some owners do more embarrassing things to cats

07 July 2009, 02:26 PM
you should make them look like Nanoneen holding CAT and Totitch taking pics... !!!
and don't tell them until you finish !!!

07 July 2009, 03:18 PM
:D! agreed.

LOL! :D i should.. and maybe i will!

07 July 2009, 03:53 PM
would be a nice hommage as you met them here !!!

and if you had a little porn donut to cat with his little fat belly :))) could be a balle :))

08 August 2009, 12:00 AM
sorry for the lack of updates recently, i've been super stressed with this challenge and sleept 4 hours the last 48hours and i'm going to catch a plane to Croatia in 1 hour :)

so this will have to be my final image. even though i wish i had at least one more day to fine tune it, i'm happy i finally finished a challenge after all these years.

thanks to everyone for all the feedback during this challenge, i'm sure that without it i wouldn't have finished.
i'm sorry i didn't post more wips in the end but if anyone's interested i'll post more when i'm back and have more time for it.

so thanks again and good luck in the challenge everyone, i look forward to come back to see all great final images !!

08 August 2009, 12:12 AM (

Software: 3ds max,Lightwave 3D,Photoshop,VRay,ZBrush

the bark and bridge textures are from, modified to suit the needs for the image.

two kids are harasing a cat ni the middle of the day in search for fame on the internet(youtube)
the little agents mission is to rescue the cat and teach the bad boys a lesson!

08 August 2009, 07:07 AM
you finished ??? ...u bastard :D

nah looks great :applause:

08 August 2009, 07:36 AM
Ah, finally something finished. Awesome. :beer:

If I may have some crit, it would be light on the agent - I'd add some subtle fill light on him. Now the shadows (and he's mostly in the shadows) get crushed to black bit too much. Maybe that's a color correction thing - but I think you could maintain the clear silhouette without it being so dark.

08 August 2009, 08:59 AM
It looks great!
You have a really original colourful style!
It is really har to create an image with so much colour variety and still keep it harmonious, and you did it! COngratulations!! :beer:

08 August 2009, 10:45 AM
oj! finished! congrats - it's looking great!

08 August 2009, 11:13 AM
really nice colours, well done for finishing!

08 August 2009, 11:57 AM
Congratulations Fellah,you did a really good job,i want to thank you for your help and support.
you should have a rest now,take care

08 August 2009, 10:46 PM finished it!
Congrats man! Love the colorfulness in this piece!
Now have some rest! I'm still have a loooooooot to animate...
I'ts going to be tough...

08 August 2009, 11:45 AM
Ahah , finally you finished one !! And a amazing one !

Big congrats , very funny and beautiful picture !

Best of luck mate

cheers ,


ps : Have fun on vacation :)

08 August 2009, 06:14 PM
jajajajaja...thats so cool...nice style, love tis one.

08 August 2009, 12:19 AM
A wacky entry indeed. Nice work :)

08 August 2009, 02:29 PM
Cool idea!

08 August 2009, 03:32 PM
This sure is fun! It reminds me of the kid next door when I was growing up. He was always torturing some poor animal. Once he duct taped the tail of our cat to another neighbors dog's tail... What a memory that is... poor cat got drug almost to death as the dog tried to get away from claws and fangs.:blush:

Awesome image!

08 August 2009, 07:01 PM
Nice to see you finished one anders ;). Really nice details

Congratulations on the honorable mention, Anders! Please don't be mad at me, I didn't mean to "steal" your prize - I'm sure they'll edit the awards page soon and out your name instead of mine under your thumbnail! (But I know how you feel: I just this week got a book in the mail that I did the cover art for... but it was credited to a whole different artist! Oops!)
Anyhow, congrats!

cool you've got a mention this time. It's easier when you finish the challenge.

thanks everyone! except Mathias Smurfhasselt ;)


haha i don't blame you for that. and link or not, i'm just glad i got an honary mention!
it would have feelt much worse if it was printed in a book as you experienced.
infact i've had similar experiences.
an example is when we did the character models for a pilot of a serie. another studio took over the "mass production" and replaced our names with theirs, even though they used our models without changes!
