Nice stuff there Ady!!!

 

Thanks for the action Sky_ :D!!!

 

Now take this too:)

Spot the continuity error and fix it :P Im out of here

 

-Angel

I hope Ady takes this into consideration: that first shot (or second in this case) when the probot first comes out always looked really fake, and the flames in this case could hide the fakiness a little better - though I could see the flames dying out as the shot progressed or being toned down a little.

Overall, everything about this mock-up is better: I love how you can see the hill behind the flames; how the mountains stand out from the sky; even the HAL eye I think works really well and would give it some life (not to mention a droidish connection to R2).  For that matter, how would the probot look to have a few more lights on it ala R2 (I know it is for infiltration and all, but anything to give it some life and take it away from looking like a model could be good).

EDIT - okay, I can see the flames going, per Ady's response above.  I still vote for the red R2 eye and the overall shot (minus flames) for the close-up.  Anything to give the probot droid any more texture to get it away from looking like a 12 inch tall model would be fantastic!  You know, maybe instead of flames if there can be smoke coming out the crater to help obscure the close-up probot droid coming out the crater (and help obscure the modeliness).. at least it would conform to the following shot showing smoke coming out of the crater as well...

In fact, that could be a cool way to reveal it: plenty of smoke coming out and all we can see when it first rises is the silhouette and the red eye activating; then we see the farther back shot of it coming out of the column of smoke (maybe making a trail the way helicopters do when they go through smoke).



How would it be to add a slight audio echo to the levitation noises it makes to excentuate the open air environment it is in when leaving the crater?  You know, don't forget the audio things you can do for enhancement too!

No, I won't be considering it. The flames are overkill IMHO. You also wouldn't see the mountain range like that behind all the smoke because the angle is all wrong. You would only see the bottom part of the mountain and not a ridge line. If you looks at the shot where it rises out of the crater you can actually see hints of the mountain anyway so there is no need for any changes there. Also the Hal light i don't like either. I prefer the yellow/ orange one it has now. Everything always seems to have a red or blue light nowadays so having the orange one is a nice change. And the shadows on the mountains are grey where they should be more blue

True, but the Mind probe had a red light, and the Imps are all about consistency. 

I can understand getting tired of just the red and blue, but if there has to be faded yellow/orange lights on a droid, there's always IG-88 or a more stand-alone droid.

Regardless, do you plan on doing anything to conceal/modify the first probot shot to do something about the modeliness of it?  I would also consider putting the shield generator really far back in the shot showing the probot watching it, being that it should be able to see it a few miles away (to keep from being spotted).

(edited prior response after reply, so just in case you missed it: ... Anything to give the probot droid any more texture to get it away from looking like a 12 inch tall model would be fantastic!  You know, maybe instead of flames if there can be smoke coming out the crater to help obscure the close-up probot droid coming out the crater (and help obscure the modeliness).. at least it would conform to the following shot showing smoke coming out of the crater as well...)

Angel,

Do you do most of your work at the resolution that it is posted here?  I have been using Ady's 720p frame of Cloudy Bespin as a widescreen wallpaper at work and I'm looking for a new one.  There were several of your gloomy Dagobah's that I would love to use, but it looks like you don't normally do hi-rez.

This is the one I'm thinking of.

I was thinking about this one and thinking the light breaking through the trees might be cool during the actual scene.  The music swells, the light breaks through and the X-Wing is saved.  I couldn't remember if the camera tracked up at all during this shot (it doesn't) but I thought that might make for a cool scene.

Or it might be too heavy handed and cheesey.  I guess I don't know which.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

Well i think I cant listen from my right ear...

Yes.  No.  Maybe.

What? I cant hear you!? O_O

Angel, Do you do most of your work at the resolution that it is posted here? 

I do most of the mockup work at 1920x816 px

Ahhh... better.  ;-)

  Yes, I thought so too.  I did like the upper right hand corner picture though.

Ady did you fix the shadows position in that shot?

-Angel

That's something I never thought of..

Ady: will the TIE fighters have their red engines in all of the rear shots?

Adding saber reflection to the glass?

-Angel

 Wow, that's cool!  But it should look more like Vader's saber is in front of Luke's in the reflection.

I find the lightsaber reflections distracting, regardless of how much sense it makes.  I love the saber fix a few posts earlier, however.
