    Omiqron Movie Project (Cg collaboration project)

    Omiqron Movie Project (Cg collaboration project)

    RECENT UPDATES :

    WE'RE STILL LOOKING FOR TEXTURERS AND STORYBOARDERS: admin@caveman-digital.com

    Omiqron Movie Project (Cg collaboration project)

    here goes with a small project description first

    Introduction :

    The Omiqron project is a project I've been working on for 2 years already and recently decided to turn into a collaboration project. We are a team of 30 people at the moment doing our best to realise something worthy to watch.

    About the project :

    We're trying to realise a full-length movie (~1h30) everything done in CG.
    The story is set in a huge metropolis where we find a "huge lab". After a war of several years between vampires and humans who tried to live together calm is coming back to the city of Omiqron but with the lab being build some weird things started to happen. The destiny of the humans is in the hands of the vampires, and that of the vampires in the hands of humans. Will they manage?

    website :

    The "Official" Website : http://omiqron.caveman-digital.com

    our team :

    right now we're 40 people working on this project going from concept through 3d through animation all the way to post production and we kinda hope release aswell . we got people from all over the world working on this and it is getting bigger and bigger

    At the moment we're working on a small trailer of a couple of minutes to see how things go, get the team together and see how everything turns out regarding quality, collab and especially public reaction (which is growing everyday with 250 visits a day on the website (which we're rebuilding )

    well that is enough talk I think hehe lets move on to the more interesting part the pictures (there is a mix of 2d and 3d work hope that is ok )

    2D work first :

    main work done by Laurentiu Butuc and Cyril Ciro Mihanovic

    The 3d stuff is much better than the 2d stuff.

    The weapon design is pretty lacking. Even if the rendering was good, the design of the last axe is... odd. Axes use a chopping motion, it's angled head getting the most out of the lowering motion of the arms. That axe looks like you'd have to almost try to stab your opponent with it, or use it with a slashing motion, which would render the bulk of axe useless.

    ...sorry, I'm a stickler for design

    I had the immediate impression that Swat Leader was able to pick up grapes with his butt cheeks.

    This is a daunting project and I applaud you for the amount of energy already expended.

    Wow the 3d stuff look superb and the city rendering is just amazing! I think that weapons design could be little better but hey! who care about how it look on the paper? the goal is that it sell in 3d ;p

    Ho yeah one more thing. I would defenitly love to work on the project. Im an amateur 2d artist but i think i could help even if im 16. If your interested in my collaboration please Email me: mamouth-hawaien@hotmail.com.

    Thanks Mamoth I'll contact you by email (hopefully today)


    here goes with some more updates (you'll probably say hum they go from futuristic to medieval?? euhm well yes. We started working on the "film" itself aswell next to the trailer and in this film we plan on doing a rather big medieval battle explaining some positions of the different vampire clans we have etc. so that is why the medieval art )

    here are some new drawings made by: eljko Matuško aka Sedeslav

    and to stay close to the futur:

    Well it was about time we posted a new update. Things are moving on smoothly and we're working now on concept, modelling and we started animation aswell. Hoping to be able to show some insane work pretty soon

    here goes for some pictures

    Modelled and textured by Sylvain :

    Omiqron Movie Project (Cg collaboration project)

    this is one is rather special it took three months to finish
    the main artists on this were/are (because some more work is left on it ) :

    Jaison Duell Wilson (Texturing)
    James Astley (3D Modeller)
    Ron Foskett (3D Modeller)
    James Azzopardi (3D Modeller)
    Jozef van Eenbergen (3D Modeller, Project Leader).

    It represents one of the main street we'll be using for a first animation sequence for the actual project. The street is rather abandonned and in a post-war state
    A lot of hard work has been put into this by all of those people and I would like to thank them a lot for there dedication to the project.

    Thank you for watching

    Yeah it's great to see you working hard on this. I think the street scene is very good texture wise. The lighting can be overdone a little bit more if you ask me, more contrast and the sunlight could be warmer. I think that will add to the effect. Hope to see lots more soon.

    Thanks Eku_11, we're having great fun with all this, as you said a lot of work but everybody on it right now is very dedicated to the project and we all wish to see it come to an end .

    Thanks jmBoekestein (of terwijl hartstikke bedankt ) appreciate your comments great fan of your work seen most of it on cgtalk didnt knew you had work here aswell .


    Well this project didnt die on the contrary still working hard and a first character is getting close to completion and we have started animation aswell. all the shots for the second scene have been written down and are being animated at the moment by the different animators

    here is some of our recent work :

    Omiqron Movie Project (Cg collaboration project)

    and some lipsyncing I started doing the last weekend
    I'm doing some wiring etc I finished the morph targets and came up with a total of 10 expression morphs and 10 phonetics which should do the trick to get him talking (I hope) so now putting everything together in a interface to mix jaw, tongue mouth en face mouvements together in one small bundle

    http://caveman-digital.com/team_ftp/Jozef/hail.mov
    http://caveman-digital.com/team_ftp/Jozef/alive.mov

    Uhm... one of those viking-guys is just a copy from a games-workshop piece. If you want people to take you seriusly you shouldnt do ripoffs like that.

    hum really? which one please? because I'll know is that it has been drawn by our concept artist Sedeslav and I dont know where he gets his inspiration but if it really is a "rip-off" as you say of course I'll take it away

    The second one from the top, in the post where you started talking about medieval stuff. I'm sorry if I sounded a little harsh, but It really is copied straight off a conceptsketch done by the game workshop artists.. I don't get why he would do that. All the other stuff you have done looks nice and ambitius to me.

    Well good luck with the project anyway!

    a small note:


    We're looking for texturers and mattepainters capable of making high quality and close to real textures and well a 360° landscape mattepainting fitting in the city environnement (would include sea, mountains, city itself (Vancouver kinda idea )


    if you would be interested send me an email at: admin@caveman-digital.com
