Motto: "Build a Giant Robot? Sure it's safe, I mean...it's not like two Stars from a childhood tv show are going to hotwire it and take over the world....right?"
So, Im finally down to brass tacks as I start up the editing process, as well as rendering out Title FX for this project/show pitch. Here are some screen shots of how I'm goig about this. The two programs I'm using are Final Cut X (Editing) and After Effects (Addtional visual FX). I'm actually using old school After Effects, as in AF6 but it still handles like a charm in terms of key framing, blending options, 3D layers, lighting, and so on...here's one of the title segments as it will appear when edited together...

Vs using the in program lens flare, I just made one in Photoshop and animated it when I imported the PSD.

As far as Final Cut X, strictly from a personal pov I prefer the old Final Cut. The new one just feels like a jazzed up version of iMovie but a dumbed down version of Final Cut, along with this nothing is where it was, half your tools are gone or hiding, certain filter and FX such as "Sharpen" are gone as well...it's a mess. However I power through and the editing has come along, so far. Here are a few shots as they're edited in FCX:

Image
One of the first shots of Fatalis, caged.

Image
Shots of the fossil dig included being this concept revolved around prehistoric animals (Dinosaurs)

Image
My Guy Ritchie moment, as the featured Paleontologist Trevor hands me a suitcase whilst dressed in black...screams Guy Ritchie

Image
Me handeling the Saber Cat skull which kicks off everything

Image
Me in hiding, dressed like a GI Joe ha ha.

Image
One of my favorite shots, the lighting and everything just looks fantastic as Fatalis stalks it's prey.

Image
Fatalis...pissed :shock:

Alright, these next few weeks will be big in terms of wrapping and finishing this project. Again, check out the behind the scenes vids and the projects Youtube channel here:

Hey guys, so one of the most awesome things to happen to an artist just happened to me, I got to meet Stan Lee!

What? You mean thee Stan Lee? Father of Marvel comics Stan Lee?

YES! THAT STAN LEE! :KREMZEEK:

So here's a vid of how this went down, which also stars Sara Underwood from G4, Mike Tyson, and Jimmy Hart from WWE just to name a few.

Also....here is the artwork that I did for Comikaze Expo back in NOV of Stan Lee, which is now signed by Stan Lee! I actually gave him the original art, pictured is a copy he was nice enough to sign for me. Great guy, even Tyson was excited to meet Stan.

Alright, I'll have moer pics up or my ongoing death bike project up soon. Till then, enjoy Stan Lee!
