giant beast for movie...


(Nayman) #1

A friend is in production of a sequl to his kung fu epic “Nakashima”

The second installment calls for the title character to do battle with a 70 foot tall snake demon. After careful research, he realized that no such creature actually exists. Therefore it is quite difficult to procure… muchless train one.

So, i was called in to design one…

I bring you… the Rangora Demon.

(still in test stages for movement)

Just curious How much was done in Blender?

BTW I think it looks fantastic, love the camera shots and movement of the er whatever it is :wink: .

the monster is going to be completely animated and compositied in blender.

It was also built in blender… but the movie is live action

Very cool! The camera shaking is excellent, though a little off on the second shake.

Very stylized demon. Remionds me of Final Fantasy game monsters.

Scary looking, kind of riminds me of those zerg guys in starcraft.

And that shifting background makes it look as if it’s in a jeans pocket or something like that :o (pofo quickly empties his pockets)

That’s great. The way it crabs to the side kicks ass. Reminds me of the bugs in Starship Troopers. So, who exactly is fighting this thing?

who cares? as long as it’s not me :smiley:

An ancient warrior named Nakashima.

In the first movie he defeated his brother, hirosaki.

But the first was a low budget comedy, but the director decided, based o nthe succses of thie first, to make a sequel, and add some killer FX, so he called me in to make a ginat snake beast… known as “the Rangora” for Nakashima to fight. We figure, the beast is about 70 feet tall, so he has his work cut out fo rhim.

:o excellent. looks very professional.

…i am guessing it is inspired by the hydralisk… and rightly so. THAT is one freaky beast. :o

…i wish i could do that… :x

Atually, it wasnt intentionally based on anything… it just seems all the good desings aree taken… the hed was a little bit based o nthe balrog from LOTR… the giant rams horns… but thats it


(Ecks) #16

is it for a professional movie by a compagny or just a little movie that your friend make for fun? I want to see him in a exterior scene like in the street of new-york!


(Nayman) #17

no, its just a student film…

I am deeply into the indie scene… right now i am rendering him in a field… so soon, you will get your wish

WOW!!! Thats was a very god animation!!! I actually have a projekt of my own. The title is: Evil inside. Not just a ordinary shool day. It’s about a stone that crach into my shool and every student becomes monsters. I and 2 others becomes the heroes. And of course our mission are. Defeat all crippy monsters. It’s gonna have some nasty Matrix effects and i very very big end monster. That’s comes out of the shools ground. That gonna be a scene to remember. I will probably post it here to watch. I hope it will be about 30-50 minutes
