Zothmund 3D Shark

I have done a 3D shark and it's a great joy to play with it!


~~~ To Infinity and Beyond ~~~

I was involved in an exhibition called To Infinity and Beyond which was orgenized by some of my friends. The theme was a space. My first reaction was a kind of joke but a true reaction. I think everything could happen in the space without reason and without why and we have seen a lot of solutions about them.
So I just stepped back and I have done my rebellion which is called #000000.

Unfortunatelly I forgot to say it's a lying picture and on the wall it's standing but it works.
I was mentioned in one hungarian online magazine CINK.HU
You can see more working process pictures and beatiful drawings here about the other's works.


Zothmund's girlfriend!

I have found an article with a video about one girl who swims with sharks to show these animals aren't dangerous. Is it true or not who know but she is great as this shark too!


Shark Plane

This is my new cover picture on facebook. I have found it on the net, just write shark plane in google.



I have graduated at Mome Animation Master degree.
About my film. It isn't a complete version what I have done. I am planning to continue it in the end of summer. I have record the live action scenes with a sweet little child and with my GoPro and I think these are a really nice videos but my Serious Adult Commenters (SAC) can't understand it. You know this kind of humor cames from the Nickelodeon channel like Sponge bob or Chowder. In this program they change the technic sometimes and you can watch live action scenes with pirots or David Hasselhoff. The SAC had a problem with the child swimming suit because his mother take care of his child and as it was sooo naturally for me. So you can't see any cocks in my film. I am sure if I show small penisis in my graduation film it would be a same problem. I am not this artist who works with this parts of the people. But I have one great and simple idea to do it! So for me it's a challenge.
I can show some stills which are the final pictures from my film. I like the taste of these pictures but I am missing something salt or sweet details. I will see.



I have finished the Truck short film I will share here soon.
I have written the theory essay too so what I just going to do is the shark film with Zothmund and a child juuuuhuuuuuuuu!
I show you my shark gif collection.


Homemade Millenium Falcon Tutorial ©

I show you in 8 steps how could I made a Millenium Falcon spaceship from Star Wars. It was a christmas gift to my girlfriend like last year the Darth Vader. I used 2 special things, a transparent plastic cd what you can get if you buy 10 pieces cd or dvd in one tube and my old camera what I broked 3 years ago.

1. The cd and a stronger paper were the base.

2. The second step I cut some piece of wood and a paper roll which were glued to the base.

3. I repeated the first step and the spaceship form was ready.

4. The bigger part of the process is comming now. My idea was that I could put every kind of small things to this body like a microchips, batteries, cardboard, cup of pens, cup of coke and pepsi bottles as staying neutral.

5. To cut and glue this things I have 2 great tools! One is a small electric saw with different heads and the other is the most useful glue gun. With these fantastic stuff it's ridiculously easy to build a small maketts. You can see the sony camera on the left-up corner.

6. When the detailed ship body was ready I needed a stand which was a cd cover and one piece of pen. The pen went exactly inside the body, to the hole of the transparent plastic cd.

7. I bought a cheap paint spray and I gave 3 thin layers to the spaceship which is immediatelly looked amazing.

8. And the last step, the Millenium Falcon has some colors which are so characteristic. Some part are red and dark grey and of course the stand had a matt black color aaaand the gift was ready.

I spent around 4 days to do this but I had to wait because of the paint. My girlfirend took a picture and shared on facebook and we get 34 likes so qiuckly! :D


3D project was called Left Side Drive

I'm on the way to finish my examination film from MA1.
I have got a huge macintosh monster computer with 8 core from animation department for rendering. One picture around 3-6 minutes instead of 20-30 as my computer worked before with only 2 core. The final movie is goes to be 4,5 minutes long. I have to finish before the graduation can be continuited.


***Zothmund Visual Taster***

I've found the final visual of Zothmund project. I used an inner shadow and a raster as a stylized noise to broke the simple, homogene shapes. Sometimes I'm bored my style so I'm glad to use this raster as something new.

I was drawing on paper but the colors, shadows and rasters are done by computer.

I will use 2D animation in Anime Studio like the Frog-tango. It's not a frame by frame drawing technic rather a paper cut animation with bones, moving-flowing vector points and flexible movements. I can use the raster as a texture for the selected shape in animation aaaand it's possible to scale, move too.

The left character is from 2008 and the rights the new. He is a fisher-hunter boy, he eats fishes but a bigger fish also can eat him. And one of the most important I want to make a real toy from him and the shark too.

My concept is based on a complementary colors, the air and the "normal world" is yellowish and the water is bluish. This is the reason for the yellow bubbles, because I'm bored to use blue bubbles. So the color of Zothmund's skin changes too and the glasses are always inverse. Not to mention that the yellow and the blue are a typical diver colors.

His room has one fisheye view and try to collect every kind of fish things. The floor, his stuffs as a surf ironing board, fishing chair, aquarium tv and a klippan sofa from ikea. His car parking inside.
The shark has a nightmare, ghost version and it comes in and try to hurt, bite, catch him. I have only one version of it in the video.

The city where he flees by car is a shower-soap-flacon-skyscraper city. I use just a form however I think it's better if I do more understandable of this bathroom things. We will see.

I was thinking how to draw a GREAT white shark, because a lot of drawings of shark are so stipud and to much "angry" and lame. I like a pretty cool shark wich is funny and frightening enough. This also goes to be a toy, if it opened his mouth it would be amazing!

I'm planing to make some live action scenes when a child play with them in the bath. The child around 5 years old, is a real child and his toys too. The live action and the animation scenes will change eachother step by step as the real world and the playing time are combined.
I met three child to exam and watch them how they play. Two of them are a brothers, Berci (7 years old) and Marci (5) could sit in the bath. I printed out and laminated the figures so they played with them like a toys. Gabi (5) had no bath and he rather wanted to play with cars. Every children liked the camera and they made ourselves funny faces. They talked about horror and everybody ate everybody there was no peace. You can see the color of live action is yellowish too like in Zothmund's world.

Well I won't use blood in the movie but they won't drink a cup of tea next to eachother. As I haven't have animatic yet I made a concept video of this slides with music and a little animation to explain the genre and give an impression. I used a original sound track of Leon the professional -The Fight (part 2 - Bring Me Everyone) as a temp music (example music). I like this classical, scary but sometimes funny music, my favourite is the submarine drum.
The scenes of life footage shark are from the tv. The Animal Planet had a shark month in autum and I recorded it.

So this is the point where I'm now, enjoy the concept video, the small short taster of Zothmund!
