Blid Wolfspinne Wallpaper by VulnePro Blid Wolfspinne Wallpaper by VulnePro
Planned to post one of these sooner but got sidetracked. I thought it might not be a bad idea to post a wallpaper size version of this illo as the original concept sheet posting looses a lot of the weathering details due to the smaller size. All the chips are dark brown and show well when you have a bigger image to look at ;) I imagine those of you who dug the original posting might like a wallpaper size so I made a nifty widescreen 1024 version. I also posted some armor thumbnail roughs in the scaps section today for those interested, there will be a lot of early rough concepts going there so stay tuned.

Well thank you for the good words :) This, and much of the work on this gallery, is copyrighted property of Vulne Pro, my studio, and is intended for an animated TV series project so it can't be used elsewhere. I'm also currently involved in an RPG project for Morrigan press myself so I'm pretty tied up. I honestly don't know if I could contribute, unless it was a paid gig, because I'm a fulltime freelancer and even then I have a lot on my plate. I certainly wish you folks the best on the project though, it's a tough market out there. Thanks again.

No problem. Believe me I know how it can go, projects often start as like-minded folks coming toghter for something they believe in with little or no pay to move them along, they do it for the love of doing it. That said, once you go full time pro, the reality of doing only work that pays settles in and you can sadly take on less and less of the non paying work even if you dig the the project in question. Thanks for the support and again I certainly wish you guys nothing but the best. I'll be around for sure, not going anywhere ;)

Bah, I wish I had my computer... this is going to be the desktop when I do get it again.

Looking at this concept, it actually looks fairly simple. I might (your permission granting) take a shot at this in 3d once I get said computer back again. It could certainly help me learn some things about 3d.

Go for it. Funny, I'm going to be dipping into 3D now as well with Zbrush 2.

In fact once you're more back in the swing og being online regularly I hope to pull you into some collabe such as penguin and I have been doing. Being you've been outta the loop for some time I figured I'd wait till you're back so we could communicate easier on some possible stuff. You'll be back soon enough so we can get into it then ;)

Yeah, communication is going to be haphazard untill June-ish. (whenever I graduate from Highschool)

Collab with you and Genocidal? I doubt I could pull enough inovative stuff out of my grey matter to make it worth it. :p
But in all seriousness, it sounds interesting. Perhaps you could shoot me an email to my gmail account and lay down the basics. That way I can try sketching some stuff. (I'd really like to do the 3d part of the animation project, but that's impossible without a comp)

Zbrush eh? It seems like the people I know around me seem to be treading into the 3d waters lately. I guess to become a success in the art world today, the more skills you have, the better.
You'll have to post some of your experiments with Zbrush in your scrap section and tell how easy it was to use. Currently, I have only basic experience with Maya 7.0 Pro, and it's insanely complicated. My first ever model told me that patientce is something that you will end up needing.

Do I have your gmail e-mail? I thought it was a diff account. I'll send you an e-mail though soon. As for your creativity, trust me you're plenty creative, plenty. I find a lot of interesting things in your work. Yeah, just got Zbrush and it's pretty intuitive. I plan to learn as much as I can and if I can master it I will be doing FOILs with it too. We'll see I guess. Indeed the more you know the more attractive to employers you will be. Fire me an e-mail to my private yahoo account with your gmail, or maybe I do have that one, I forget which it was. I just know I do have one of your e-mail addys :)

Thank you kindly :) Yeah I had fun just kinda experimenting with this one. I got a little more fantasy-ish with the rolling wheels on it, as seen in some of the posts above about that, but I felt giving the piece a sense of motion just made it work better evenif it is supposed to be a concept rough. The colors were straight WWII German cammo in inspiration, doing cammo is always fun on these things.

Sometimes indeed but I still try to make sense of it more often than not, make it fairly convincing. Clearly much of what we see in anime is very aesthetics driven and it's the power of the stories and animation that compels the viewer to believe in what they see. Personally grounding ones work in 100% believability is in opposition to the whole point here as this is about imagination, doing what can't be done you know. Cool folks are digging it though.

It's actually part of a pitch prep for a TV series proposal. We will be approaching investors on this soon, prob later this year. There might be some comic material as well but it's primarily for an animated TV seires pitch.

Too early to say how it will go other than we're prepping it as a pitch and working hard to make it something special. It's going to be pretty different. Thought there's been all this tech and mech stuff posted expect to see other stuff and character designs soon as well as more tech for it.

Well the net is kinda helping break down those boundaries to a large degree. is in Sweden and he's contributing to the project so at the moment distance isn't something of an issue. Once funding is secured and it goes into production then things change and parties involved will prob have to relocate depending on the situation. In some ways the way this is going is how Gainax formed when they worked on Wings of Honneamise, a bunch of artists, mostly non-pro, came together under an idea, that film, and they showed the industry that something like that can be made by unknowns. not only that they made one of the most respected anime films ever made, and most impressive from a design standpoint. I'm approaching this with the same spirit in mind, do something different, turn heads. I have no conceits about it, I'm just going to let the work speak for itself, do it's thing. People are diggig it so it's on the right path.

Awesome spider like tank, even though it wouldnt work as the weight and small wheels would cause it to get stuck in some places it still makes for a very nice image :)

Thanks :) Good point indeed though I should have noted, and should in all Theos armor/FOIL postings, that these machines have a hidden device within that is a type of anti gravitic assist. I won't get into too much detail here as its part of the mysteries in the story to be uncovered. The device is known from the beginning by the people who pilot these things but it's full purpose is unknown as they can't tamper with it. So the tank and the FOILs have zero weight/balance issues but the wheels I fully concede are whimsy on my part overall. It simply made the illo more dynamic to make the tank speeding along but theoretically it could really be near hovering adjusting it's weight to cut down ground resistance with the small wheels. I'll say this much, the technology is not there for function as much as it is to assist the "illusion". Take from that as you will ;)

Did you just make that up?
Reply
:iconvulnepro:
VulnePro Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Nope. It was in the project all along, I believe I mentioned it in previous posts somewhere regarding the FOILs. I had a notion the tanks would have it as well but overall it's not as important for walking tanks to have it. It's in the FOILs primarily to assist in flight and it adjusts weght and balance when the machines are on the ground. As I said the illo here is without question more in the suspension of disbelief territory. The reason I'm not getting into detail is because it's part of a great deal of strange things in the story setting that are to be revealed and no it's not going to be mubo jumbo, it'll be clear as things evolve. Guess it does sound like it's pulled outta a hat though as I'm not explaining it fully.

You have to realize that most people never ever read the text in the description. Usually I don't read much text on screens if I can help it, I tend to print it out if it is more than 3 pages of solid text.
But that is my excuse... most people are simply too 'lazy' to find the time to read over the carefully thought out descriptions. (that often end up answering all queries later posted in the 'reply' section...)

Good point. Indeed, I do take that into account and really don't have any problems answering questions and such nor take offence at critiques that may be covered in the posting. It's all a balancing act of believability and implied realism and aesthetics. Overall I post the explanations in the text for those that do seem to want the extra info, for those that don’t it’s fine just for comment on the art itself, it’s all good either way.
