Well it is time to take the plunge.

I've got two ideas so far and are leaning towards the second more for the animation.

The first was an android type robot , almost like sonny in I Robot look, sitting with crossed legs
playing an harp or same stringed instument with a sad expretion on his face.
See he is longing for a lost love or something that will never be.

The second is a battle scene with battle suites waging war, lots of explosions ext. very busy.
On one side there is one of them doing ballet on his own.When the rest see him they all stop
and watch him.

Or something like that.

What do you guys think.

Nice to see you joining us Corrie !
Cool ideas. The second one appears better to me, more expressive.
Have fun friend !

I agree with gpepper, it is very emotive. Maybe the dancing ends the war, that would be great


Good luck too, looking forward to seeing it evolve

Weeeee Corrie !

Really happy to see you decided to press the "enter the fun" button !
It's surely gonna be stunning as usual.

I personnaly find the first idea more attractive ... probably because it would be more peotic or something . I mean the bot playing harp with a sad look on his face , perhaps in the middle of people or on a theatre ... could be lovely ... anyway , that's your call of course

Anyway , can't wait what you're going to come up with

cheers ,

Hey guys,thanks for dropping by.

I'm currently working on some characters for this piece and pondering on some ideas for the animation and sequence.

I would love to do no. 1 aswell,who knows ,maybe in the illustration category.

I've change my story a little.

Two apposing factions are fighting,one looks to the side for a glimps of something that caught his eye.he looks and stops,he then gets a clobber to the head and thumps to the ground.
he jumps up quickly and looks again.he screams something and the rest starts to look in the same direction.

There all dumb struck with what they are seeing.

On the side of the scurmish there is one of each faction humming a tune and doing ballet to it,together!

The onlookers turn to each other and back at the two misfits and back at each other again.
One screams and they all turn back at the two and shoots the hell out of them.

They turn back to each other ,screams and starts fighting again.

The End


Well that is the idea any way,I might be biting off more than I can chew here but I'm going to try my best.

99% of this is stuff I have not done before ,so this is a big challenge.
Lucky there is lots of time.

Any coments or crits welcome.
You can even call me insane for trying to do this.

Cheers ,Corrie

Well as you might have noticed ,I have not been around for a while.

It is a long story realy,but in brief I ended up in the Middle East for more than a month on very short notice(was not to bad,worked 14 hours a day every day) and has been back for a week now and in this week alot has happend.

I have changed jobs which ment no more internet, so I had to make a plan on the week end and got new laptop with internet.

I have missed the forems and all the people here to much ,so I had to make a plan.

Anyway i see there is still some time left so I'm going to shorten my story abit to fit in with the time left and see if I can come up with something decent.

Cheers to all.
