Nice...

Extremely well written concept. I already love it. The story really sets this up to be one terrific, dare I say, spectacular entry...

I am definately going to follow this one!

Hi all, I'm very glad to hear that people are digging this concept.

Just to clear a couple of things up...

She's not going to be shooting. The gun is empty, adding to the desperation of the situation. She's still holding it but only loosly, about to let it fall from her grasp as she jumped from the building. This'll be more apparent in the final image (I hope...).

The falling chap will be holding one of her shoes to suggest that as she was pulled upwards he was able to grab her foot but the shoe came off and he's falling back down. Her other shoe will still be on to help reinforce this idea.

I might try to tweak the camera angle a bit to see more of the city being destroyed (spectaulcarly of course). I'm also considering a reflection of the guy reaching from the helicopter in the window of a building opposite - would be a nice touch. Maybe a shadow would suffice. Hmmmm.....

All in all a lot of work.

Thanks for the support for the idea, I should have some models to post soon. I made as start on the falling zombie last night.

Catch you all soon,
Dave

Jddog - Hahaha! Touché

Tolga - Not sure what you're suggesting exactly. Are you saying I should flip the composition horizontally?

Cheers for your comments.

Modeling: Zombie 01 Head



And here's a smoothed version. He looks like quite a pleasant chap doesn't he?

Not for long! His face is going to be screwed up in an evil grimace but, as I'll probably re-use thee heads topology for several other zombies, i've modellled him with a fairly neutral expression.

The ears don't quite look right. They seem squashed. A great start! Good luck!
