im with AdrianLazar on this one, i find it quite confusing and not 100% sure it falls into the bmovie category from your last posts…can you explain your idea with a screenplay or a synopsis or whatever?
im not dissing the idea just finding it hard to get my head around at the moment.


Do you mean this would be a Z-Movie ? This is hard to get because this is love !


2d still storyboard :


2d motion storyboard (characters interaction scheme) :



basic undetailed mesh wires of one of my secondary characters, it should appear in a few scenes :


here is a try of my mesh with particles :


another secondary character(s) who should appear in a few scenes :


poly face with transparency layer tested with ibl for another secondary character, i will post later the body design :


a few design tests with my previous face :


I’m going on with characters design, i dont like the way it is going now… I’m not sure to keep B-Movie characters style for my final casting.


another secondary character :


helico-insect transformation :


another secondary character :

I’ve used a painted texture for ibl lighting that i made with Photohsop and Maya, and i haven’t used any facial texture for this face unlike the previous one i painted with Photoshop with my own skin maps.
Regular eye material with circular ramp texture that i’ve glowed for both characters.


a try of my previous face in motion :

there should be a few transformation with it, unless i decide otherwise.
