Concept Sketch: The colours man

Took a break from modeling to do a quick sketch to get a feeling for colour and other elements in the scene that need to be added. All very rough atm I want the room to look very claustrophobic and full of hard edges to play off the oragnicness of Angus. I also wanted Angus to be bathed in blue light to emphasise his blue mood.

your model its great, very funny!
and I like the concept with the blue light too
good luck!

Beautiful! The contrasts in both colors and shapes works very well

I love his teeth, spooky

Wow wow wow! I love that lighting. So much more interesting that cookie cutter HDRI renders. Bravo!

The melted face is really nice.You have a good imagination ,modeling and color composition.

I'll follow this to the final.

Good luck!

awesome the lighting too, and the colouring of it.
I'd possibly think about cropping a bit off the left side of the pic (seems like a bit too much empty space there), and making the outbox higher or lower than his head(they're a bit too much the same size)

totally brilliant and original!

That is my office! Nice start on the lighting it looks great. I agree with Shakes the composition feels a little out of balance, maybe add a couple inches more scene on the right? Anyway you got a good one going.
Old 03 March 2006   #54
Love where this is going. Very nice atmosphere with that colorz. Unsymetrical modeling is so powerfull! Keep it up Good luck.

just idea: what about to add some weird angle / perspective for the office. You know, something what emphasize claustrophobic mood.

Old 03 March 2006   #55
That lighting is looking really good. I like the contrast in colors.
Your modeling always blows me away. I've had days where I felt like that.
Old 03 March 2006   #56
Cool lighting.
I like the mood very much. and the modeling as well.
Good luck to u mate.

Concept Sketch: Stark reality

This is another idea i had for the feel of the picture. More realistic in aproach. I want Angus dressed in a realy bad early 70's jacket, with maybe a purple tie. The skin will be photorealistic, would appreciate your thoughts. Nothing is unwrapped or textured yet, its just a guide for me.
Old 03 March 2006   #58
Would like a little poll if you would be so kind, what do you prefer, colourful and moody or stark and realistic, i like em both and just can't make up my mind. The stark version will give me a better shot at some cool photorealistic skin and i kinda prefer the comic value of it.

kfc Thanks for lookin in

miketche Always a pleasure to here from you Mike, thanks for the kind words.

Oweron Thanks for the heads up, i'm a big fan of your work

soapy Yeh my little workspace is looking like this too, music cd's and various other bits 'n' bobs scattered everywhere.
shakes I agree with you on all accounts, will fix things up

adel3d Hope you enjoy the thread, i'm haveing fun following everyones progress

3D_Explorer Thanks for the cudos buddy, i've never had an issue with HDRI renders cos i don't have the software to produce them, give me a good old fasioned light dome any day.
Gunilla Thanks for popping in buddy, bad fitting dentures suck, and i should know

BrianC Glad you like the concept, thanks for looking in.

I miss the dramatic lighting, I think it gave the image a much more ominous feeling. Is this latest render more like what you had in mind?
Old 03 March 2006   #60
I agree with Ray here - the previous lighting had a great mood ... would also look very cool with the realistic texturing. Well, I'm sure you nail it
