I know prospector has started a thread with this subject already, Just thought I'd add my 2cents as well.
:bowdown:

I'm currently working on a new Sci-Fi mini series called Project T.E.R.R.A.
when finished the first episode will be released as a webisode in the Summer 2007

All done in LW and featuring my female character... A Cyborg working for a secret agency.

No this has nothing to do with any other projects... :tsktsk:

Project T.E.R.R.A. is a completely new Sci-Fi series.:thumbsup:

Similarities to other titled entities is purely coincidence - My lawers would have me say LOL

Really nice modelling and a great start on animation there ! good luck for this project!

:lwicon: :goodluck:

i find she looks a bit too perfect in her head :
maybe too simmetric. and, despite I love women bodies,
i think she should wear something....more? :p

Thanks of the words of encouragement Nemoid... :thumbsup:

I agree... Yes she's perfectly simmetric, I'll look in to that for the next edit.
She will be wearing something soon, This is just the wake-up scene and the next will be her getting dressed for battle!

Hi Wizzard,

You are doing some nice work there...
Nice makeup option...

Thou In looking at your take 1 of her waking up...
You might want to do a little more thought about character & motion...

First the unfreeze FX was more of just a straight dissolve...

1) May I suggest something that shows layered transitions...with maybe a time lapse FX or so...

2) She wakes up all at once....
I would break the reaction into multiple awakenings...of breath skin motion and finally eyes alert. Think of her fighting to awake....then this also goes to help develope her character.

3) your general motions even limited...look to robotic.
to stiff...she needs to flow more...at least you've given her a look that suggest that she should move that way...I would only make her move her with robotic motion if she had been injured or some loss of something....

Good Luck....I'm looking forward to seeing your project and stories online.

Cheers,

Thanks Ray for your comments.

I was thinking about changing the effect on her skin, Now i know which direction to go :agree:
Also there are two thawing effects anis posted on my site.
Tell me... Which one did you like best?

I know my motions are a bit 'robotic' and that's something else i'll be working on for the next take.




I would like to invite you - AND EVERYONE ELSE!! :) to sign up to my forum at: www.projectterra.com/forum

It would really help to get a fan base of fellow LW-ers posting suggestions and comments there.

Hi Again Wizzard,

Well I really didn't like the second wake up...it looked less like veins than cracks in her...

My suggestions is to think of the skin as layers that will thaw in at different rates in different locations...depending on the thickness and what is under the skin etc...

I would give her a more death or crystalin look that changes...

Is she standing up or laying down ?

She doesn't look like her head is up agains anything...and when she wakes up she doesn press against the bkg.

Again, I would go in one of two directions...either make it a more life like awakening...or make it more like she us running subroutines...etc...then awakens.

From her looks I would make her more life like...

Make her fight to awake...help show her character right from the start.

Those are just some thoughts...and suggestions...there are many paths you could go...

There also should be some atmosphere around her...and we should be seeing her thru some sort of distortion glass, or something...etc...

Cheers,

The Wizzard

Hi again yourself :)

I too liked the first effect - It better explains the process she's going thro and looks way cooler :hey:
But the sound FX guy I'm working with, didn't like it, saying she looked too 'Metal like!' :devil:

Link to take one: http://www.dmwizzard.com/terra/terra_wake_p1.htm (MOV File and plays in broswer)

I like your suggestion of thawing her in layers and at different rates, I'll have a go at working that in with the Node edit... and I'll re-use the ice effect from Take one and put the veins back in :thumbsup:

The two anis posted on my site were, for all intesive proposes... test renders.
I have done a longer sequence and i think this will answer your questions i.e. Is she standing, etc

It is posted on my Youtube page and can be found at:

Thanks again for taking the time to post back, It has been most helpful :thumbsup:

Hi Wizzard,

Loose the glasses...or make them more integrated with her helmet...or something more futuristic...it takes away rather than adds...IMHO.

I also would give her some clothes...
And take her to the Dentist...she's looking a little vampirish.

;)

:agree: I was thinking about making the glasses part of the helmet... Now that you have the same idea - I'll get on to it.

As for the clothes, I'm in the process of giving her some body armor... that'll be a while yet, I'm still working out what it's going to look like!

More soon.

By looking at the pic there seems to be a morph on the teeth or tooth, kinda hard to tell from this angle.

So, work has begun on the body armor. Here's a taster.... Just an F-Prime render




First I start with the jacket and some buckles.

I'll be adding details and pads next.

More as i get them done

Well, May I suggest just shooting a medium shot until you add more...

Also...IMHO, both the glasses and your "to be armor" just don't seem to work...(for me).

It looks like a bad cloth vest from a department store...and cheep glasses...
Also you would NOT allow armor to NOT cover vital areas...such as her chest and neck better.

I know that it was a quicky render....but may I suggest a little more design and material research...to better both the design and implement.

Cheers,

On the glasses....I would suggest making it more of something that is part of the helmet...and is activated from the helmet...thus a little more ove the helmet...and less glass like...something that either comes out of the helmet or rotates on it....

She has her own mothership of course... I've just posted some test renders here: http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66786

Let me know what you think...

so.. does the cyborg have programing in its AI that makes her hot for a nice thong, along with her makeup? Hmm. maybe she is trying to score some ck from some other cyborgs right? ;)

I haven't done any more work on the model since these images were posted.

However, If you have a look at the website Under the character section, where you can some more info on her. You'll see she used to be all Human but, after a near fatal car crash she was rebuilt by the 'Agency' in to what she is now.

Although more machine than Human she still keeps some of feminity plus all the technicians wroking on her are pervets....

Follow the adventures of the cyborg femme fatale Agent 122 as the Agency sends her on perilous missions throughout the galaxy.

Will she ever remember her past,
Can she reclaim the life that was wrenched away from her,
Does she even want to...?


Well, I've seen entire series on SCI FI channel with plots just like this so it's not that bad. In most episodic series the plot is just a hook to hang the action on anyway.

As Teal'c would say... Indeeeed. We have some great episodes lined up, with some really good cliff-hangers to make you want more and at the end of season one a really big bombshell!

BTW I have three screen writers, There is of course myself - Although as i'm doing all the graphics, models, animation, website, forum, ad campain... LOL

I've not got the time (Or the NRG) to get involved too much with that. But one of the guys is a Hollywood producer who is also doing the story boarding.



I've not given too much away on the site - Don't want to spoil it!
Needless to say - Watch this space or rather that space...

And of course I'd advise everyone to sign up to our forum for the latest info and teasers at:
www.projectterra.com/forum

Also, I notice that a lot of you are going to the old
www.dmwizzard.com/terra
that link is like so yesterday :)
The new one and the official address is of course:
