Title: [WIP]The Jaguar & The Mouse (A 6min short)
Post by: Josmic8or on June 01, 2010, 09:01:54 am
So I guess you all have probably noticed me posting about some short that I'm planning to make.Well this is it-
THE JAGUAR & THE MOUSE
A jaguar spares the life of a mouse.Little did he now that that very mouse will save his life from poachers.(Kinda similiar to the lion and the mouse fable)

CHARACTERS

(http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/8858/77579392.jpg)This will be the big strong agile jaguar.He may look hard hearted on the outside,but when he spares the mouse's life this shows what a softy kitty he is.
(http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/3928/95627968.jpg)This mouse always seems to get into trouble like being chased by a bulldog,crashing into a beenest or landing on a jaguar.But besides all that he's quite brave and believes one good turn deserves another.
(http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/4849/46548118.jpg)This bulldog probably has cat relatives because he really hates mice!
(http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/7866/36242312.jpg)These two poachers love to catch jaguars.Too bad their scared of mice! :P
(http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/8348/75897791.jpg)Just a bird that always flys into things.ANYTHING!

Hey... these guys look pretty good all around... but I think I like the dog the best! The jag's pretty cool, too, but where's his tail?

I love the jaguar!

The paws seem a little strange though- have a go at making them bigger or smaller.

You know better than I do.

you need to work on your models a bit more. even 3 hours more work on each one of them will benefit u really well. they are really good but not quite great. but ic the potential in you to make your style fantastic. im not trying to knock your work at all. i know youve blown through like 3 animations in the past like 2 months and your progress is well on its way. but i think you should slow down just a tad on this one and make the quality much better.

Arik:Yep!Didn't finish the tail yet :'( But I'm working on it!
MeepIIYou're right! :)The reference image I used had the paws bigger.Having problems

Great stuff and good progress.  I like how you're keeping the models nice and simple, that will definitely help your project stay fresh and move along quickly!

Hey everyone!!Still working on the project!
By the way I had used BOB IT's f8ce script to make the bodies for the poachers so I think he should have the credit. :) :)

HIHOSILVER:You're right!Keeping models simple is the way to go!And the more simpler the models the more better their morph targets for their facial expressions look!

Below are some progress so far

Hey there Josmic8or, :) .
 Haven't had a chance to watch yor fly clip yet, but am going to my brothers place 2moro, and he has proper internet so will catch it then and add comment in that post.
 As far as this one here goes....... :D Yeehah. :D. I just love it.  Can view 'some' of the pics and the 1st 3 characters are awesome.
 Because of the way you are working, i hav a feeling that you may just finish this, and  that in itself is an excellent achievement.
 I'm working on something at the mo, which will be between 4 - 6 minutes long. I hav a deadline of early september, and am about half way through, thinking i still hav more than enuff time to finish.
 Theres something strangely good about knowing you hav that little amount of 'xtra' or 'Spare' time.
 I find its allowing me to relax a little, and spend some lazy-time, just going over what i've done on the clip so far, and tweaking things here and there.
 I guess what i'm getting at is, if i could say so, is don't rush to get the final rendered movie posted.
 When you're working with something thats six minutes long, (as you are), i can gaurantee that you'll see some things that you should have done or fixed 'after' you've posted the 'final' movie. ;)
 Use your current motivation to knock out those hard yards ahead, but don't forget to take a little 'quiet time' now and then, just to watch what you hav so far over and over a few times. (and over and over and over and over...lol).  Things pop up that you may decide to improve on, and at the end of the day, it all helps to make a more detailed and enjoyable vid, for you, and other people. :)
 hohum, raving again.
 I may not get here that often, so i guess i can tend to rave on when i do.
 any way, gr8 stuff. :)
