Good Luck!


This is SO cool.
I have no experience with this subject, but looking at artwork done by other people, seems amazing, so I’m looking foreward to dig into this.

Cheers and good luck to all of you!

@Richard: Thanks mate. Good luck to you too :slight_smile:


I’m thinking of some kind of icaros/ikaros kinda thing, at least in theme.
I’ll try get something down on paper, within the next couple of days.


Initial concept art of character and machine. Not finished design!




The main character is old, really old. He is so old, that he is nearly dead, extremely bended foreward and bad walking.

His lifelong dream is to be able to fly freely like the birds do.

He has build a huge maching, 2-3 times bigger than himself, which can carry him in the air, at least in theory.

It has huge pipes and is build by all sorts of different stuff he has found.

He takes it on with a big struggle, the machine is really heavy.

After a few tries it takes off, and within few seconds he is in fact flying with the birds.

He gets more and more excited about it and pushes the machine beyonds its capablities.

It breaks apart in the air and he crashes down to the ground.

We see a flash back of him, perhaps narrated, writing a goodbye letter to his children, saying that they shouldn’t worry, his biggest dream has come through, and he died a very happy man.

He takes a last look at the picture of his dead wife, before closing the envelope with the letter, putting it on the table.

Back in the present, we see a big carriage standing, top loadede with crap (pardon my french).

As he thinks he will die of the crash he instead lands in the big pile, surviving.

At first he lands on his back, with the maching in the dirt, but after a few seconds it tips over, pushing him into it, and settles on top.


I’m not sure about the whole steampunk thing. I’ve never involved myself into this theme, so if the story or the design lacks of steampunk-theme, please say so and I’ll try to correct it.



Your story definitely has steam-punk elements to it.

Looking forward to seeing some more!


the sketches looks promising for me, and the concept behind them!
I like the vision and the style of story, will check here for next updates

cheers and goodluck buddy, :thumbsup:

@Pyke: Cool! I’m glad you see some steampunk in it. More will definately follow :slight_smile:

@Dennis: Hey mate. Glad you like it :slight_smile: I’ll post updates soon!


Some more concept art.
I’ll move on to storyboarding soon, so I can get the story down.


Haha…love the juxtipositon (sp?) in size of the machine and the man :smiley:


Just getting more and more into the shapes.
I’ve got my story down in writing, so next up will be the storyboard.


Thanks a lot, ivanisavich.
I love the work you’ve done previously and in this challenge too :slight_smile:

Software: Maya

first glimpse of the main character. nothing much yet, just wanted to get going. I hope it’ll be done by the end of the week, together with his machine. And then rigged by the end of next week, so I can start animating. I’m sure that will be the big time consumer.


looks promising :wink:

good luck with that one.


Man, this is a really cool story. I think it is going to make an incredible short! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Good luck.
