Title: Just because I went all quiet...
Post by: thecolclough on November 29, 2013, 09:37:00 pm
I know I haven't been very active around here lately... but I'm not dead.  Yet.   8)  I've even done a bit of work in Anim8or during my silence.  Probably my best piece of an8 work from the last couple of years is a run of episodes I did for a collaborative cross-continuity webcomic, circa mid-late 2012; the project uses a huge variety of art styles from the traditional to the high-tech, and I've done the odd episode with Anim8or renders, including an entire chapter which revolved around some not-exactly-humanoid robots having a 'political' meeting.

The design for the 'Doorwarden' robots (which make up most of the crowd) goes back several years, but I extensively overhauled my model and created a few new variants in preparation for this scene, and I built the utility-tunnel set from scratch using a modular design.

I've attached a selection of my favourite panels, in the previously-unpublished raw-render versions without the speech bubbles (darn dialogue getting in the way of a nice picture!), and if you'd like to see the entire 8-page run in its finished state, then you can read it at http://fortparadox.blogspot.com/search/label/Utility Tunnel (http://fortparadox.blogspot.com/search/label/Utility Tunnel) (note that the first episode is at the bottom of the page, and the last is at the top).

The project sounds quite interesting. Thought of maybe starting something similar in this community?

COOOOOL. The renders are awesome! I also love the robot designs. I'll have to definitely look deeper into this project!

Wow, there's a familiar name from a while back.  Good to see your work mate, great renders.

Hello thecolclough! It's been quite a while. Good to see you back on the forums! Nice renders, I also enjoyed reading a couple of episodes you did. It reminded me of your old projects! Nice to see you back :)

This looks very cool.  I'm getting a whole Robot-Animal Farm vibe off the renders.  Nice work!
