Above and Beyond - Vehicle/Character - Apt Pupil -

Ok, this time I am going to start by finishing the 2d section first(not like last time) *blush* I am going to enter all three catagories of this challenge, and another contest somewhere else simultanously (see my concept there for a 3000 poly model - click here - ).

Here is what I have so far in terms of sketches, otherwise, I am in the process of finalizing the lines(I'll show that soon) and then I will organize them into an interesting composition.















Comments and Critiques are always more then appriciated

Man you are a workhorse. Are you going for color here as well?
And then you are going to model it also? Hats off to you, brother?

But then again, reflecting on your past challenge, this should be a piece of cake. Until you have to texture it.

Good luck.

Ok, I finally worked a little on my 2d entry. I started with one of the most crappiest sketches and I transfered the idea to 3d to get a good angle. Now I am in the process of building it up.


But basically, it will be a dark scene and to the right, there are going to be . . . well, I will show that when I get there

[Edit = Banished supposed final date. I think I will work on both my 3d entry and 2d entry simultanously, hence progress will slow down here again ]

Otherwise, this is a new method of working for me (from black and white to color) and it should prove very interesting. I still have many things to add, but in the end, it should look 'very' cluttered.

Old 08 August 2002   #12
Ok, this is the last one for today, Tomorow, I'll finish adding in the technical skematic, the highlights from the glow, and maybe, I am not sure, but I will add a thing or two more

Thanks M@

This is probably very close to the final, however, I am not sure.

Comments and critiques would be Most welcome.

Do you think it's to colorful, to textury, or is something else needed?? I am kind of blind to it at the moment

a friend suggested the yellow welding glows look magical and are emanating from the graph, I will have to create a large yellow glow on the right to correct this originating problem.

Also, it looks like it's in a bedroom like it's a drawing table, hence wood shavings or work tools will have to be added as well to correct this.

If any one should have any other comments or helpfull hints, for the love of god, tell me

I was having a hard time understanding the sparks until I read your comments. To me they looked like they were coming from the pencil. I think probably because they seem to radiate out from that area, when they should be radiating outward from the source. Welding sparks would probably not bounce that much either ... so I'd get rid of those extra ones on the highset arc.

I like the set and don't think it looks anything like a bedroom. Definately a workshop of some sort. Although I would have probably put fewer pencils and brushes in the cup. Maybe a small wrench or screwdriver in there would give it a more shop-like feeling. And maybe some extra hardware scattered around on the table (nuts, bolts, screws, nails, etc.).

Lastly, a welder/grinder/whatever that produces that much sparks would probably put off a bit of light. You should reflect that light on some of your objects (especially the metallic ones).

I've been watching you develop this for awhile, but you really lost me when you started creating your tabletop setting. It looks good now that it's all come together. Just a bit a refinement here and there is all it needs now.
