Hey all you guys I’m James and this is actually my first post in this forum :o Exciting, isn’t it? Well, I have been planning making some kind of animation based on escaping from a prison for a long time. First off before I get in to any kind of script making etc… I need to do a few tests on animation since this would be pretty much my first proper animation project, and plus, I’m pretty sure tests always help rather than just going “Balls to the walls” and jumping straight in headfirst. However, this is going to be exceptionally hard for me since I know near to nothing on the whole modeling process, although I do know a little about rigging, but i’m not extremely strong on that either.
All in all, I need help from talented individuals to get some character and stage models going on. Unfortunately, I can not pay since I’m only 14; Look age doesn’t mean everything! Infact, maybe by doing this I could prove that statement, hm.
IF you are willing maybe adding jameyjam99 (me) on skype would be a good idea, since these models might not be the final design.
For aesthetics of the animation I want it to be pretty cartoon looking, with the characters being rather short and having the more rounded look to them. Along with the scenes/stages being slightly more stylized than realistic.
I’m not sure how many people will actually reply to this, but hey I can always be hopeful since these are the kind of models I’m looking for (Of course if you really feel the need you can model some other things to do with the jail escape setting):
Protagonist Prisoner with optional rigging. - This character should look somewhat unique, do whatever you can think of with him, remember to still have the orange outfit design though.
Prisoner characters with optional rigging. - These characters should wear the stereotype orange outfits and can all look fairly similar, with just small adjustments to colors or body sizes.
Guard characters with optional rigging.- There is no particular guard that has to be different from the rest since I’m not planning a specific guards being a main character, So the design would be pretty much the same as the prisoners except with the stereotypical blue guard suits.
Overall prison - The prison does not necessarily have to all be in one thing, you can make the seperate places inside it if you really want to, e.g The kitchen or Work area. However, if you can, it would be nice to see one whole model.
Secret prison areas - These areas are places that would need to be made seperately, they include little designed areas that contain weapons, you can pretty much think of what you want since they’d only need to be basic rooms.
Outside Mining area - Just a stylized mining area with various ore
Outside/Front of prison - The front of the prison containing A gate, and various guard towers.
I just generally need weapons, these can range from a pistol to a chainsaw. Be creative, what would you like to see a prisoner murder a guard with? This also includes weapons the police would hold; Basically just different types of rifles.
When it comes to the time I will eventually need other miscellaneous items such as food etc… however, this is not important at this stage.
That is all from me, thank you in advance and I hope this can all work out ~ Barldonkulous
