Hey Mim... Yeah, Craig is doing some great work for us! I'm the team director, handling a lot of the writing for the script and what not. We have a small team of modelers and animators that'll turn these characters into 3D!

I'll post some stuff about our team in a bit, thanks for the interest.

hey everyone,


here's the layout for our establishing shot. Moody, dark, steamy. We'll make it expose the environment better of course, I hope you have your monitors calibrated







By the way - solid concepts so far Craig!

Very nice concept work guys. Can't wait to see this movie come to life !

Thanks for the comments folks.

Nice environment, Raine. Very moody.

Here's the progress on Jen, based on your previous comments Dmitri.
First version shows the mechanism on the arm as larger. We pulled this back with the final version.

my main concern however is that Jen and John do not sit stylistically together. I think some of the alterations we have made have made her a little less stylised. Any thoughts on this people?

Hey guys, welcome to the challenge, your stuff is looking sweet! Nice work indeed

I'm looking forward to reading a bit about your story too, are you going to be working straight from the screenplay or will you be adapting it?

Good luck guys!

incredible concept art.
redfrog- it seems that int eh first sketches both characters had kind of an inverted v look making for a heroic forced persoective, based on the big boots.
the heads and hands are working together for me. butit does seem that you have kept the big boot look for him and lost it for her, probably for the sake of making her "prettier".
From design one to two, she gained a big arm and lost big boots. In 2 to 2.1 the big arm gets toned down. so she is a little "normal" compared to him now.
i woulod say go with the big boot look for both of tehm so they have the same forced perspective quasi-heroic look.

on the other hand, i find large footed characters hard to animate, or at least requiring a certain stylisation on the movemnt to accomadate the funky footware.

can't wait to see more.

Ok folks,

I've modified Jen based on some of the suggestions. The old bulky boots ar back, and the face has been reworked to find a happy medium between the first and second versions. I've included a combined pic with Jen and john so we can have a look at how the two work as a pair. Comments and crits are most welcome.

Just thought i'd also take this opportunity of welcoming Brad Virgo to the team (aka XxMushr00mheadXx) who has come on board to help out with the creature design concept art. Brad is a very talented illustrator who i work with in the toy industry.

With the two of us on concepts for the creatures we should start churning through this stuff a lot quicker.

Hey let me know if you guys need help with modelling. I just completed a 3d character which is in the same style as the ones here. I even wonder if it was designed by the same artist, because the style is so close.

I'd like to post a picture of the character. I've also got an animation to test the mesh movement, of the BIG FEET style. If someone can host it let me know. My site is not working right. Its only 100kb and the pic is 40kb.

Why can't we post attachments in this forum?

Hey Danb,

Email it to me and i'll host it for you.
