Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

When I envision really bright sun, the kind where you'd have shots looking up at the sun and then have to wiping your brow, etc, I envision stark shadows. That is why I made the characters so dark and backlit with bright light in the earlier examples. It's like a simplified version of stark shadows...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

I'd like to see a bit of texture in the beard, and the eyebrows look a bit odd, but other than that, I think it looks pretty good. Thanks. I had originally tried to texture the beard using your drawing as a texture, but couldn't figure out how to get it work once I had the mouth; so I went with the...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

lwaxana, I included some variation in the line thickness for the beard, eyes, nose and wrinkles, but I don't remember if I did that for the actual head outline. It doesn't look like I did anyway, so I'll take a second stab at that. Presently the outline colors are all black, but you are right it wou...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Here is the first draft of the main character in vector format. This is a 3/4 view only but with functioning eyes, eye lids and mouth. I am not sure that I am happy with the eyebrows; this version uses a single line with a brush applied to the stroke. I am thinking about changing it to an enclosed s...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Per my commitment toward better communication and setting dates on deliverables, I will be working on vectorizing the main character this week. This is character #6 on Jahnocli's character design sheet (posted Sept 21st). This character will require multiple views, but I will focus on the 3/4 view i...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

The main question I would have before putting a lot of work into a collaboration would be whether or not the project manager is taking responsibility to complete the project even if they are the only one left working on it and will they be steadily working on it throughout. I think this might be th...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Given that the forum doesn't have a well-known precedent for a collaboration this big, and that roles and responsibilities were not defined from the beginning, it's natural that participants' expectations might differ. This is an opportunity to define those roles and responsibilities. Once they are...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Steve, Calm down -- it's not my intention to start a flame war or anything! I've worked on your project -- I continue to work on your project, amongst other stuff that I'm doing. I wasn't 'hurt' by you mis-spelling my username, I was amazed you got it wrong when all you had to do was copy it. I gue...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Steve, this is unacceptable. Takes 5 minutes, tops, to at least acknowledge that people are doing some work on your behalf -- you can do that no matter what kind of day you've had. What have you been doing for twenty days? And you can't even get my username right. It's right there! Doesn't give me ...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Janocli, I apologize for the radio silence; had some long days at work. The drawings look terrific! I really appreciate the effort and will begin vectorizing and rigging the characters. Duey, about a month back you mentioned that you would be vectorizing all the characters. Were you able to do that?...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Welcome Baphomet!

I had considered 3D backgrounds as well. Are you able to create something from nature? Fields, trees, bushes, decayed looking cars? I would be curious to see what could be done. What 3D program do you use?

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

EHE Brandon, would you be interested in taking on the background for the opening shot? This is an important shot because it tells a story unto itself. We must remember that anyone viewing this has no preconceptions. In other words they won't know that it is the zombie apocalypse until we show them. ...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

Here are the storyboards. http://i57.tinypic.com/2vlscwl.jpg http://i58.tinypic.com/16kqr2o.jpg http://i58.tinypic.com/2z7jrd5.jpg I reduced the number of shots from the original 36 down to 21. I am somewhat happy with the first 14 shots; after that I think it could use some help. To reduce the work...

Re: Anyone interested in teaming up?

I welcome your help MinahBird and Brandon! I know that for myself I am good at certain things and really struggle at others. This has prevented many projects from even getting off the ground. Or if the project does get started, it never sees the light of day. I am sure there are others like yourself...
