Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Chasing Defenseless Pigeons



Wow.....a challenge only 4 days left hmm
I don't have time to update and make comments because time is running out....so
I chose to just do the work and write a journal when i had the chance..lol which was never.
Monday November 12th 2007 around 11pm
i just finished working on a ghost in the shell fan image. So i'm in a robot mood. So where do i start...hmmm I imagined a robot just taking a stroll. Boring yes but my instinct was leading me in this direction some what so i was ok with this image at the time. I played around and added different things like a top hat and an umbrella...but then I thought about monster movies like kong or godzilla and decided to place my robot in a city setting. I played around with perspective which originally I was gonna try and draw free hand....but as you can see it's just not looking as amusing as i wanted.

Line Art or Model: Alley Model



Tuesday November 13th 2007 10:37am
I modeled this in maya pretty quick because time was running out...it was and the deadline was coming up fast. After playing with cubes at first that resembled the concept image I began to add a more geometry and shapes that would act as guides for when I paint over it. Then after completing the alley I used a point light and a low intensity ambient light to follow where I thought the best lighting would be for my image. simple lighting just to help me for when I paint over everything.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Wireframe



Heres a wire frame of the alley..as you can see there is higher geometry in some places. This is due to me needing as much line help as possible to steady my hand while I painted.

Line Art or Model: Painting over



This is the second attempt at painting over the alley model...looking kinda like a Craig Mullens painting.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Fixing the Pose



Tuesday November 13th 2007 11:12pm
After trial and error i caned the original pose and decided to go with a running more menacing pose for the robot. It opened my mind a little more and aloud me to explore the character of the robot. I'm really liking him now.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Tweeking...tweeking



After giving myself a good pat on the back for adding teeth i decided to clean up the bricks among other things. i added a little more iron to it's right bicep, some dust coming from his leg and played around with the lighting a tad. I really like where this is going but I didn't know why I had drawn it this way.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Pigeons



Wednesday November 14 2007 10:49am
so I went from scenario to scenario and decided for the time left in the challenge I needed to do something that was fast, easy to paint yet still effective to the overall final image which until now I didn't know would look like this....I finally have it the painting where i want it. Pigeons chill in alley way...and what could be a strange behavior for a robot. hmmmm.....it likes to chase pigeons. This opened up more fun for me and a more enjoyable process. I found alot of free stock photos of pigeons and used them as reference. I think it adds a great touch.

I present "Chasing Defenseless Pigeons"

the story is simple

this is by far a personal best.
