Concept / pre-visualization: Composition Image

So, the idea here is to do a team of two guys (Human + Alien), fighting against another race (some kind of robots or something). The pose of the main characters will back with back (making a break down, to begin or re-start the battle), a classic pose from cartoon\heroes movies. Let's see what will happen...=)

Concept / pre-visualization: The main Characters

The two guys of the main team. This is not the final concept, because when i'm doing the 3D models, i change alot the design of the characters.

Concept / pre-visualization: Design of the characters

So, here's a preview of the kind of the design i will make. This will not be a hiper-realistic image, it will be some kind of fantasy\cartoon\heroes image, with stylized characters on it, the ideia is to do some kind of shot of an animation movie. Action on it
PD: With non-realistic approach, i'm not saying that i will not put details on it, i think details will help me and maybe it will be fun put some of that in this stylized characters and environement. Let's see how it goes in the future...
Cya soon! =)

Hey! Almost 3am here, i wake up to write this:

-The other team\guys, don't will be robots (because i think it's a "little" bit 'naif' to do always the same thing: organic guys against robots\machines), but some kind of big guys made by rocks, some kind of a tribe in a middle of a forest or inside of an old temple. Our guys are fighting this rock men, because they have a powerful stone, and they need that stone to put in their space-ship to return to their planet. More fantasy style i guess...
Sleep time...

Interesting

The silhouettes seem to be impressive and evoke some manga-like style comparisons. Look 4wd to 3d models.

Work In Progress: Geometric Composition

Thanks for the comments!
Last night I worked on the composition of the image. My goal was to concentrate the atention in the middle of the board, where is the main action (also the main characters action). I created also a dynamic line (with the flying rock guys), starting in the right upper corner and going arround to the middle of the image (to bold even more the idea of the main action, our two guys).

PD to renderwhite- Eh Semione! :D Cafezito? :P Começa na pic tb moço! ;)

Concept / pre-visualization: Another idea, Another Concept

Another subject, more sensuality here. A little bit of romance: A girl is "kidnapped" by his special friend to a exotique dance in the middle of the night, is Summer, the sky is the dancefloor and the bodyes are moved by the song "Strangers in the Night" by Frank Sinatra...(That comes from within the Alien - Alien's small ship). A little bit tacky, but is all good... :p
And... I must envolve more in digital paint...
