I think you did a great job! Although it would have been nice to see him with gorilla-like hands. Very funny "take" on the theme though...like "A Night at the Roxbury" in space!

Thanks for your comments Tyson... Glad you liked the result... There are two reasons why i didn't do the hands... first, this was my initial idea (everything human except from the monkey head) and second, i am working hard on wrapping up my demoreel so time is an issue...

On another issue that came up, if anyone is reading this thread, I am trying to upload my final video for the video challenge using the cguploader but it gives me an error message saying that "This feature is only available to CGS members"...I used my username and pass, selected video as a category, browsed to an image and flv video and then i clicked upload....

Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
George

Work In Progress: I am adding to this if i can make it in time



Ok... I decided to add something else i have been working on in my submission...

Its a space scene i have been messing around with for a couple of weeks now on and off (mostly off), not sure if it would fit in there, but i think it will work really well to complete my submission...

Hope you like it...
George

Work In Progress: spaceship model done



I hope you like the design... I took some reference from old nasa spaceships as well as spacestations and added my touch on that...

This is the model that will go into the space scene...

C&C welcome as always...

Have fun,
George

Work In Progress: The spaceship scene



Software: Digital Fusion,Maya,mental ray

First of all thank you for commenting on my entry. Sorry I haven't visited yours but i am still finishing stuff for my reel and its really time consuming as i am sure you know.

digikris: I was creating the ship for the stylistic purposes of the angles it will be viewed from, so proportions where not the most significant factor of consideration. If sizes still bother you in this video, i can change them (schedule permiting).

Tyson, Grzegorz: I am really glad you like it...

I really hope you like how the space scene turned out... I was thinking of putting it in front of the monkey scene in the edit. What do you think?

If you have the time, could you also check my new reel at www.geovfx.com and tell me what you think?

C&C welcome as always...

Thanks everyone in advance,
George

I love it. The tracking on the ape-dude is amazing. Esspecially when he is drinking the beer.

I also like the design of the ship. Very 'jules verne'.
