The Journey Begins Challenge (3D) Entry: Mike Moir


Mike Moir is entered in the “The Journey Begins Challenge” update: View Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Hopes Journey


Hey all,

Nice to be back at another challenge and I think I have an idea too.

In the foreground a sick or wounded figure is being carried by his companions to a far off temple which has a supernatural look to it. The temple will be on a towering pillar/mountain with rugged terrain in between itself and the characters in the image. Or maybe a quest for knowledge to some type of Oracle .

Just a few ideas…

Anyways good luck to all .


Welcome back dude, best of luck to u!


Good to see you back, Mike. :slight_smile:


Mike! Glad you’re in again. It’s always cool seeing what you come up with. Plus it makes me push myself harder to try and improve. :wip: Good luck to ya.

Great to see you here from the very beginning:bounce:

Okay, here is a simple sketch of the environment for my scene. The characters poses are going to change but I want the sick or wounded character being helped to get to the Temple by his friend/friends.

There should also be something supernatural going on between the characters staff and the dove which is their guide to the temple.

Still working things out but this is a start.


Nice skecks and concept:)

Good luck to you!


Hey Mike !!

Great concept , and your sketch really rocks !! :thumbsup:

keep it up man !

cheers ,



Hey Mike, really great to see that you’re doing more terrains, the ones you have done for the last challenges looked great. :applause: Cool looking concept I will be looking forward to seeing it progress.

Matt :slight_smile:


Hey Mike, glad to see you again, clean and beautiful concept, i´ll waiting your next update, man


Looks like you’ll have a fun time playing with light and shadow in this one, tons of depth. I didn’t notice the wounded character very quickly, and it’s unusual to see someone who’s the staff weilder also being involved in carrying the stretcher. The background is really well done, the solid foreground stone walk is a nice contrast to the tight spiral at the temple. Really nice :slight_smile:


Hey Guys ,

Thanks for the comments so far:) .

Kary, I am going to change the staff into a chain with an orb that is pulling or directing the guy on his journey . The orb is going to be attracted to the dove , this way the guy can carry the stretcher with both hands.


Hey mr. Moir, very nice to see you there!

by the last Challenge I know that I could wait some kickass work! Your concept shows such a wonderful balance, I´ll be waiting for ups.

all the best!
