Jiendel Gavil Kunst Fau FOIL by VulnePro Jiendel Gavil Kunst Fau FOIL by VulnePro
A new full CG Wacom paint Theos Ke Polemos FOIL concept, this machine another by the fictional corporation Jiendel, Gavil line of FOILs. This ones a heavy Cav FOIL and as such has the dual swords on its back. The headcase is fixed and heavily armored but the FOILs actual field of vision is not hampered by this as sensors are hidden all over the machine giving it 360 vision, all FOILs have this. This one's a rather battered and weathered machine with rust stains and chipping on its classel (a form of metalized armored paint) armor overcoat on top of the ceramic body which accounts for the rusting and the brown chips which show the super hardened ceramic underneath. This is essentially mostly a complete piece but I will be going back in and doing a few tweaks including adding a shield, the one I had just wasn't doing it for the design. On the left shoulder is the marking EOS, meaning Eye of SOL which is the forces under the flag of the planet Indus, the SOL sun symbol also on the left leg armor. On the right leg armor we have 7 swords indicating this FOIL has defeated 7 other FOILs in one to one bladed combat or duels of honor. I have a pile more in the works and planned but also a pile of freelance busy so I'll post when I can.

I should note that the quote, "God knows your lonely soul" is from a song, props if you can guess what it's from :D

So is the FOIL inself bioorganic or is only the pilots organic.

The FOILs are bio-mechanical so there's an organic entity that is the central living part of the FOIL. The pilots are, always, human and they work, in symbiotic concert, with the faedai (the organic sendai entity that is the FOIL's consciousness) to pilot the FOIL. The faedai, more or less, translates the human pilots combat skills into the piloting of the machine so the more skilled the human pilot is, in say sword combat, the more skilled the FOIL will be.

I've accessed your Theos Ke Polemos site, brilliant!! However, apart from the original designs of the mechas I'd like to know something: what does FOIL actually stand for?

Sorry for the late reply for a simple question here. Yikes O_O There's a lot of comments I simply haven't seen or gotten to yet. I suppose one thing that's nice about the DA updates are when someone comments on a piece I can now see the preceding comment.

FOIL is an acronym for Feadi Omni Icar Leviathan. Glad you enjoyed the site though it's really out of date. We plan to rectify this soon though.

Best!

Well don't feel you're work pales in the face of others who simply might have more experience, it's all relative to the amount of time and practice you're willing to put into it. What I do isn't something that can't be learned with time and a lot of effort and as much as I may appear to know I'm always learning something new every day :) It's good you're doing your own works, ultimately it'll come down to a lot of practice to get really adept at design and have a level of comfort with it. Don't be afraid to look at ANYTHING for ideas, not just mecha and such. You never know what might spark a cool idea for a shape or form with your designs. Always be looking ;)

Well this stuff is actually intended for animation, it's for a pitch to investors we plan to do sometime in the future. If this show get's made my intent is to have a studio like Bones or such to produe the animation. It's far too involved a project to do ourselves.

Hrm, I had wondered why you gave the FOILs the extra arm joint. It all makes much more sense now. (I read your responce to one of the comments.)

The edge definition is awsome, and looks psudo-realistic! You've got to let me pick your brain of cg-goodness when I get my tablet back.

In anycase...keep up the insane work.

Thanks a lot Daemoria, kind words indeed. I'd be more than happy to offer any CG help or tips I can. Yeah the arms are designed to assist the grabbing of the swords while hopefully retaining the aesthetic style I want the machines to have, I.E. the fantasy aspect. Overall the look that's resulting in my full CG approach does seem to be like a 3D CG render only lacking the perfection of a 3D program as I'm prone to imperfections in the imagining, I'm only human ;) I did look at those ships by the way, strange designs indeed, modular like some of the old school Galactica ships from the original show :)

Why thank you for the kind words. Going full CG has been the best way for me to do these, it just has been a more effective approach. They may not come out perfect but my main concern is the ideas more than anything. Full CG is like doing them as a virtual clay sculpture so it works great in that sense.

Thanks a lot man and thank you for the Fav :) I had some fun with this one, markings and the weathering. The synopsis is coming soon; I added a lot of new info because much of it was outdated. It'll be a meaty and detailed read so hopefully it'll help understand what this is about and better yet sound like something exciting to be involved in :) It'll be send to you soon, been juggling no less than 2 freelance projects, e-mails with potential future gigs, this new FOIL posting, and some writing and I haven't lost my mind yet LOL Least not so far....

VulnePro Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Yeah, actually I prob lost mine some time back as well.

I imagine your script is probably quite interesting based on what I know and have discussed about it with you. You are exploring some interesting ideas with it, no doubt. As for the synopsis, it's primarily background and world setting info with some detailed explanations of sendai, FOILs and character bios to boot. If this all really seems exciting to be part of you'll eventually get some of the actual half hour show episode scripts as well to peruse. Yhe first 5 episodes were roughed out already in script form, typically more than enough for most pitches but I plan to get to writing further as I know what I want to do with them.

It will be hard for this character to take swords.... optionally, for better, body can be some longly, IMHO.

If you mean accessing them from it's back they actually swivel forward and the arm, opposite of the blade to be grabbed, has a secondary joint in the forearm to help bend and grasp it (the line can be seen lower forearm). Keep in mind, in the world of animation so much of what you see A. is impossible in real world applications, and B. is suspension of disbelief because the skills of the animators and strength of the story carry you along. Sure I do try to make sense of the concepts I draw but I also approach them with some aesthetic sense of fantasy as well, this is a big ole mecha thingie after all a pretty fantastical notion right from the get go. It's all about entertainment but of course that doesn't mean you can't be smart about it.
