Hi there !

I chose to work on a simple (in fact, on a stupid) story with a cartoon style : the main character, a little Frankenstein kid, tries to catch and kill chicken, while aliens try to stop him.
It would be named :
Franky's back : the chicken odyssey
I think it's bad enough for a B-Movie :)

I hope you'll all enjoy this challenge.

Good luck !

Franky's model.
I'll rig it, change the topology if necessary, and sculpt all the details.

Hope you like it :)

(yes, he won't be naked)

01-25-2010, 05:08 PM
I like how your character progressing...Very nice model.

01-25-2010, 05:21 PM
Thanks !

The question is now : will he be green or not? :arteest:

Just finished the rig.
Time to sculpt now !

01-27-2010, 08:35 PM
I am also doing a Frankenstein but on a more serious note. I dig what you are doing, good progress. I will stop by later.

01-27-2010, 10:24 PM
Just been there
Nice to see another approach different and unique. Keep it up, green would be fine ( you can always try blue - its trendy now)

01-27-2010, 10:40 PM
Great character, really nice clean shapes. Keep it up

Good luck

01-28-2010, 04:04 PM
spray : Thanks! Your entry is great; and it will be interesting to see how our Frankys will look. :)

fgdf : I think he'll be green too. There are so many Na'vis now that keeping him green will be original.
Maybe I'll make a blue version, just for fun :D

Duncs :Thanks !:)

Seems like my computer isn't good enough for sculpting, I'll need a bump map.
Not a problem (I hope!)

Franky...finished ?

02-03-2010, 07:37 AM
I think it's looking really good Clement. I like the exaggerated features and the colors. I think the mouth area could use a little work though. Just a thought. :)

02-03-2010, 09:09 AM
Oh really nice! That latest renderpic came out wonderful, and you characters in general haa great style :)
Keep going!

02-03-2010, 11:17 AM
Thanks ! :)

I will change the mouth a little and see how I can improve it.

I'll work on the chicken too, some concepts to come.

An idea for the chicken's head.

02-03-2010, 09:02 PM
I got to admit, great work m8...

Fantastic character, cant wait to see it in motion.

02-03-2010, 09:51 PM
I like your rooster sketches. A good combination of realism & toon! :)

02-04-2010, 08:10 AM
Love the chicken head Sketchs.

Thanks guys !

I just finished the head with a better perspective and some colors, time to work on the body now !

02-05-2010, 11:24 PM
gj so far! I love the green guy, he looks dashing :)

02-10-2010, 12:26 AM
Really nice Franky model and concepts!! Good luck!

02-10-2010, 10:05 AM
Fantastic work. I like your style. Frank char is awesomly cartoony.

Good luck m8.

Environment for the first scene.
I tried to keep it in the style of my characters, with a mix of realism and cartoon.

I'll work on the storyboard now.

Comments/critics? :)

02-23-2010, 02:48 PM
Nice progress you have here! Best to you!

02-23-2010, 02:52 PM
great work so far. modeling, texturing, design , colours all looks very good! like for me no comment, quality seems to be fine , so in motion it will look 2 times better :)

02-23-2010, 04:24 PM
I'm really liking the look of this. Very nice style. :thumbsup:

02-23-2010, 04:28 PM
Great colors mate. I liked this character from the begin. What your render time? Layers?

02-23-2010, 04:46 PM
Thanks Adib and Staszek, I follow your work closely, it's excellent.

Thank you Webhead :)

And thanks again Boris. The render time is about 7 minutes for the final resolution (640*360). I didn't use lots of fifferent layers(buildings, ground/particles) and the compositing is basic.
I'll try to optimize the render time, 5 minutes may be possible. Maybe three with different settings, I'll do some tests and post the results.

02-23-2010, 05:07 PM
Nice...its not too long. Great quality. What render software did you use?

Like your style. I'll follow this thread.

02-23-2010, 06:16 PM
Nice job so far Oli... That Franky looks a bit like me!:D

Good luck!

02-23-2010, 07:41 PM
I used Blender's internal renderer, wich is quite efficient with particles and a simple lighting.

Thanks Greg. Good luck to you !

02-23-2010, 07:51 PM
Nice environment and lighting :) .. just the size of the field looks a bit of but its minimal and since it is cartoony it doesnt really matter. Looking for more ..

02-23-2010, 08:46 PM
I love the farm set. The characters a quite nice too! Keep it up!

02-24-2010, 11:26 AM
SLuedke : I changed that a little, thanks !

looksee : Thank you, I try to do my best (and to spend a lot of time on it, too :))

First part of the storyboard.

It's the first time I make one, critics and suggestions are more than welcome ;)

Software: Blender

Some progress in the animation : Franky is looking for the chicken.
Seconds 18 to 31 of the video.
Render time : 40 seconds; in the dark, 5 minutes with the light.

The first 18 seconds are almost finished, I'll try to render them in the next few days.

Well...'Hope you find him cute ;)

Storyboard is really nice. Good job.

Render is well optimized regarding the time.

The animation is cool, but it feels like something is missing. Maybe if he would move a little faster, to have some more defined poses. Also add some secondary actions like maybe a fly that bugs him or maybe he coughs for a bit cause of the dust...

These are just suggestions. Great stuff man. I really like the colors.

03-10-2010, 11:18 PM
great work.

03-11-2010, 03:55 PM
The animation is cool, but it feels like something is missing. Maybe if he would move a little faster, to have some more defined poses.

I wanted him to have some weird moves. At some times he moves very slowly, at others he's quite fast. Anyway I'll see how it looks with the the rest of the video, and do some changes if necessary.
It will be clearer with the first part of the video.

Also add some secondary actions like maybe a fly that bugs him or maybe he coughs for a bit cause of the dust...

I should have said that about three seconds after he appears, he hears some noise made by the chicken (just after he looks at his left/his right) and reacts. I will change that a litlle so that it's more understandable (it will be better with the sound, too).

Thanks a lot for the critics ! :)

bstout : Thank you !

Software: Blender


This is what I've been working on for the past few weeks.
The final length of the video will be ~1min 50s.
Some more shots to come (7 or 6), with a lot more action, slow motion etc.
I hope 19 days will be enough...

Hope you like it !

Beautiful look and great characters. Your chicken is way cooler than mine.

04-21-2010, 09:53 PM
This does have a beautiful look to it. The framing, color, and lighting of the opening shot is fantastic. It's too bad there wasn't any sound to go along. Good job!

04-22-2010, 11:14 AM
Lot of work done . I like very much open shot. Its looks realy nice!

Good luck!

Thanks ! Your video is awesome, it's the funniest of the challenge. I hope the judges will take that into account :)

Thanks gyromind. I put a lot of work into this shot. Unfortunately, I had to stop working on the video 3-4 weeks before the deadline, and then worked on it only during the last week. That's why the end of the video is so bad.
I'll try to do something better for the next challenge.;)

Lot of work done . I liek very much open shot. Its looks realy nice!
Good luck!

Thanks. I hope you'll win a prize, you really deserve it.

Cool mood and lighting.Very nice work.
Good luck Leibniz :)
