Trying to visualize some action scenes

06-30-2009, 11:33 AM (

06-30-2009, 11:59 AM
Beautiful mood! And a really fun idea!

Are you going to use live action background plates?

06-30-2009, 05:27 PM (

Florian created a quick sketch of kitchen looking like a highly defended base with watchtowers and etc.

06-30-2009, 05:31 PM (

Another great sketch from Mateja,
we are thinking to go as crazy as possible.
Cyborg cats? Why not?)

06-30-2009, 05:41 PM
Haha, this is coming along well. Looking forward to this one.
So I suppose these are just to set mood, or you guys planning to mix live with CG?
Keep them coming!

06-30-2009, 06:10 PM
Pyke: we don't know yet, i wish, will see.

07-01-2009, 07:47 AM
Thanks for the comment guys, we will try to capture the mood as much as we can. :)

07-01-2009, 08:12 AM
Hey guys. Looking really nice. I like the idea of cyborg cats.

I tried pasting a link here with some high res pics from the new GForce movie (rodent secret agents), but CGTalks filtering system ****'s it out. ;/
PM me if you want the link tho. ;)

07-01-2009, 09:23 AM (

C.A.T - Cyborg AntiAgent Technology

07-01-2009, 01:37 PM
Looking just great! I hate you guys! :D I feel like this could be the front runner just in cleverness of idea. SUCH a good idea, and no shortness of talent to pull it off it seems. I'll keep watching you guys (with shifty eyes) to see whats next. Great job so far!

07-01-2009, 04:28 PM
nice concept...the idea is so cool...:buttrock:

07-01-2009, 10:51 PM
It's amazing how big a story can be if it is told the right way... i'm impatient for this story... everything is in place :drool:

07-02-2009, 12:47 PM (

Just an idea of our agent watching the city.
The moment before he jumps of the roof and his mission begins)

07-02-2009, 01:34 PM
All of your sketches are really incredible!!

07-02-2009, 01:39 PM
Really cool concept, and wonderful execution so far. I'm jealous, haha. Love the "quick sketches" that blow my stuff out of the water! Keep up the great work...very inspiring.

07-03-2009, 06:46 AM (

We are working hard on characters.

Wookie did cool sketch on mouse character.

07-03-2009, 03:34 PM
i really like your sketches, guys, and the whole concept is awsome. Thats strongly reminds me of an oldskool hungarian cartoon, cat city. Man, i loved it, when i was younger.. wishing you good luck! cant wait to see the result.

(catcity with english dub part 1: )

07-03-2009, 11:43 PM

07-08-2009, 04:38 PM
Daaaaamn you guys definitly got the concept design skills. I'm really excited for your project, probably as much as my own! If you guys can pull off the 3d in a cool stylised way I can't see anyone beating you guys. That said I will try my best too :D
Your work so far is like you're all in a company, if not you should be! Great stuff!

07-08-2009, 05:26 PM

Few concepts of agent mouse from Mateja.

07-08-2009, 08:36 PM (

I did a small paintover on Mateja`s concept.

07-09-2009, 04:42 PM (

Here is great concept from Wooky.

She is a villain in our story.
Don`t be fooled by cute look of this girl,
Definitely you don`t want to see her bad side when she protects her lovely cheese from our agent))

07-10-2009, 05:14 PM
All I can say is, I can't wait to see this... well done so far, it's looking awesome.

07-10-2009, 05:16 PM
Thanks Jamsta, soon we will have storyboard, and some models.


07-10-2009, 06:18 PM
All I can say is, I can't wait to see this... well done so far, it's looking awesome.

im totally agree....this one will look great!

07-11-2009, 07:24 PM (

We started to work on agent gadget designs.
This is first one, night vision glasses with projected information on them.

07-14-2009, 03:36 AM
Wow, can anyone say previz Eden? :applause:

You guys definitely have one of the most fun/plain cool visuals in the concept department that I've seen in the challenge. I'd agree with destructo about the work having the quality and consistency of a pro company job. Keep up the good work!

Beast regards, Varun

07-14-2009, 04:19 AM
nice concept...where did you get the idea?

07-14-2009, 06:59 AM
@saeDubai : Thanks... we are hard at work to finish this one on time... since we are separated (different countries and timezones) its pretty tough...

@melkao : The story has evolved through a lot of conversations between team mates and a mutual agreement on what looked and feel really nice. We are looking at this short as a some sort of parody (but not too much of an extent) to numerous secret agent movies and such.

07-14-2009, 10:29 AM (

So at last)
Our agent reaches the mighty cheese.

07-14-2009, 12:53 PM (

Eric is working on city mattepainting,
it is just a first WIP,
surely at the end it will look amazing.

07-14-2009, 04:09 PM
It's already amazing!!! :thumbsup:

07-15-2009, 06:01 AM
taking the best and making it better... ur WIP is rocking... great work guys. :)

07-15-2009, 12:52 PM
A mouse who wants to get a top secret cheese from highly guarded kitchen.))

I love the main idea with the super mouse, it's gonna be something)

07-15-2009, 10:14 PM
Really like what you have going on here. All the concept work is great can't wait to see it start coming together.

07-16-2009, 02:14 AM
A little dark-fun movie here!

07-16-2009, 08:49 AM (

Gordon is working on kitchen, the place where main events will happen)

It is just first WIPs, we are thinking to end-up with realistic kitchen at the end!

07-16-2009, 09:45 AM
well done. I can see that you are giving it very cool atmosphere.. desaturated colors etc.
Looking really good.

07-16-2009, 09:29 PM
Well I've stopped checking cgsociety for almost 1 year now. In the mean time I Got work, a small appartment, a sweet loving cat, and a crate of beer. Yesterday someone asked me to make a 3D sketch of his houseplan in Acad... As I said, almost a year I haven't opened a 3D program.

So I checked back on this site... A good thing too..... Cause I am amazed again how many skilled artists there are on this forum. I'm truly jealous. These drawings? You call them quick sketches, for me they would be a lifes work.

I will practice to get the hang of it. And will once join a Challenge.

07-17-2009, 02:11 AM looking great...the atmosphere is really nice!...and feels cool.

07-19-2009, 09:22 PM
time for FX !

Wooky is working on girl model,

07-22-2009, 04:48 PM
This piece is just gonna be awesome. I vote C. for the little girl sketch. Her clothing looks that bit more "nasty" as I believe she was mentioned as in an earlier post?

Great stuff guys, truely amazing.

07-23-2009, 12:02 AM
This team is coming up with some great concept work, keep it going.

Its interesting to have the high-tech cyborg looking cat, and other character elements all playing in a plain kitchen. Looking forward to following where you guys take this.

What's your team/project name?

07-23-2009, 02:55 AM
Thanks for support guys,

Our team name is Timezone studio.

It is because we are different artists all around the world. And we came together to create interesting and exciting art))

07-24-2009, 04:55 AM
Wow, everything is looking great so far!
I really like the cyborg cat design. It's very sleek, which is ideal.

07-24-2009, 02:04 PM
You guys are working so hard and doing such a great job... why not take a week or two off, and just relax.

Kidding awesome progress. Your challenge entry is motivating (me to work harder!)

07-24-2009, 02:08 PM
hey I just looked up where Dushanbe, Tajikistan is. That like 100 miles to Afghanistan! Is it safe there? Is there any trouble there from the war? Hope America doesn't invade you... no joke :(

07-24-2009, 08:39 PM
I love the art style in this project. Very original story too. I look forward to seeing the finished product:D.

07-25-2009, 03:20 AM
Hi David,

No signs of war in our country.

Unfortunately we couldn't make it this year. But we are planing to continue with this project beside this challenge.

This is a very good team, with talented people, and we like working with each other no matter we are in different countries all around world.

Greetings and thanks for support


08-13-2009, 04:14 PM
Bad new for the competition, good news for all the other teams. Damn you guys rocked! If you want help finishing after the competition, I'd be down to do some fx for you. Or if you want to work together on another project let me know. I was blown away by the awesome concept art, cleverness of the theme interpretation, and overall designs.
Think about posting an image for the still image part of the competition. Some of your work is already good enough for that.

You guys are talented group!

08-14-2009, 02:33 AM
please, take the time to finish it ! you made an amazing work !

congrats to all the team :buttrock:


08-14-2009, 04:56 PM
The style is this one! :bowdown:

08-14-2009, 09:41 PM

congratulation to all the team for your job.


08-15-2009, 05:45 AM
