Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to this one. Well, I suppose I look forward to all these cg challenges but the 'strangeness' part of it does sound like a good start

OKMER
Thanks to you too Remko! I was delighted to see your thread starting up. I can't wait to see what you come up with this time

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: First concept



'Strange Behavior'...

What a cool theme! A very broad range of possibilities here. I enjoyed doing a space theme in EON so I might go all spacey this time too.

First potential idea is a huge detailed space ship - all rust and rivets and rubber bands and a zillion miles from anywhere - and the astronaut, getting into the spirit of long voyages is outside getting a tan. I guess that's what too much time alone can do to you.

I'm not so good at drawing space ships so I've employed a fairly cheap method of getting my idea across...

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: another one...



Here's another one. The birds in this scene would be pretty confused, and more than a bit disgruntled

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: and another



Hey that's great news that you'll be starting your own challenge thread, shakes! Brilliant!

At the start of something like this I like to churn out a few ideas. That's why I'm not putting in too much time on the drawings - I'll think more about detail when I decide on what to do. This idea might look pretty yukky but it's not far from what some people do. You'd be amazed at where some people go fishing - definitely strange behavior

There's kind of an infinite number of possibilities based on fishing. This one's set in one of those fancy restaurants where the fish are on display

Some pretty excellent ideas here. I like the space ship and bird's nest ones the best of them all. I especially think the bird's nest one could be really funny.

Thanks Xavier. I'm thinking exactly the same thoughts. The space ship and the tree are my preferred options too.
