i love the visuals very much, the music is also very pro but didnt catch me somehow.

on a final note, i dont have anything against homage-tros to great artists (at least not if they are as well executed as this or BETA), but if this is going to be trend for trying to move oneself closer to "real art" its doomed to fail. nobody on the outside will take demoscene stuff more seriously now, sorry :P
(note that im not saying demoscene productions arent art or that this is the intention behind the tributes)

@wysiwtf: don't worry :) it's not my intention to make demos more accessible to demomuggles, I just loved the dude's drawings a whole lot and appropriated some elements. if you go to his website or deviantart page, you'll see that his stuff is just compelling somehow!

Love the shadow, the palette - combined with the music it's a very pleasant watch.

i liked the style. more 3d detail wouldve helped though, also after checking up with the referenced artwork, i feel it could/shouldve been more detailed to play more with the shadow effect (which was kind of the gimmick afterall). the big city scene for example was quite good! still. nice experience!

rulez added on the 2011-12-29 11:42:33 by cce cce
when i saw the screenshot i thought "YES! finally some npr!", but then the actual product is basically just blending an animation where the shadow should be and it's not exactly subtle so in a lot of case sit just feels like there's a big hole in the rendering and i can see through it. maybe decreasing the opacity or making the mapping worldspace instead of screenspace would've been a good idea. another point of contention was the direction - sorry wf, you're a way better director than this, pun intended. the ending shot is done really well but otherwise the cinematography and editing just feels rushed. (and since it says party version, it probably was.) that all said, i'm really looking forward for the final because well done conceptual stuff is so rare that i cant not appreciate it.

It's always freaking hard to try and translate a two-dimensional style into 3D and it doesn't totally succeed here, but I do appreciate your general approach. The atmosphere is really enjoyable overall, probably due to the great music (which btw reminded me of this somehow http://youtu.be/s0krxH0dWhU).

I'd like to see more like this, perhaps with a little more polish!

This was my main problem with it as well, i kept 'switching' between seeing a hole and seeing a shadow :/

But ace work nonetheless, great music and visual style and loved the ambience! Nice work!

The screenshot of this looks awesome, but watching the demo was no fun at all. It felt like you're just switching through some 2D textures for the shadows and that totally ruined the experience for me. With a different way of putting the shadows in motion (don't ask me how, maybe some frame-to-frame coherency in world space?), I would've loved this.

Interesting visuals, but maybe not utilised to the fullest degree. Nice ideas too, but it just kinda falls flat and doesn't manage to offer anything that interesting. Less than the sum of it's parts.

Wow, I really didn't like this at all. 3d flyby with a very uninspired pseudo-NPR look. Best thing was the music, but that doesn't safe it from being a thumb down for me

Music is brilliant. Rendering style is brilliant. But the direction, editing, and composition let it down. A lot or potential and with better direction, more interesting environments and pacing this demo would be quite something.

Thumb for one man show! How about a followup :)
rulez added on the 2012-01-01 19:35:40 by Mewler Mewler
Cool style! Maybe the cameras were slightly too quick and 'uninterested' at times? Sort of takes away the awe from some of the scenes, but it might have become too stale if it went all 2001 a space odyssey on the camera front.

Camera movements are way too fast to match with soundtrack's drama. The rest looked reminded me of a toy kasparov blended with leftovers from a Kolor demo... pig!

i like the concept and music, but in motion the shading kills it. there's some good techniques out there for doing this kind of hatching well - they're not particularly easy to do, but it deserves some more attention than this. :)
maybe for a final?

rulez added on the 2012-01-03 21:15:59 by wiseman wiseman
Pretty good, but I agree with Smash - the juddery stencil shading is distracting. I dunno what would have helped, maybe more frames shown faster or a variety of shading directions would help increase the noisiness so it's easier to ignore.

Too artistic for me, and the black & white pencil pattern in the background really ruined my visual experience. It was pretty hard to try to interpret them as actual shadows instead of just a masked texture.
The soundtrack is very well made though, excellent work! All in all it's a piggy.

What gargaj said, but I enjoyed it a ton all the same. Tune is great, the scenes are great.

The rendering style is not quite there. One way I've seen this done is to have multiple 'pencil shading' textures going from light to dark so you can shade the full scene this way, then add a standard edge detection filter over the top to put lines over the ugly joins between the different levels.

The direction.. not far off, could be a lot better with a few changes, and the camera work wasn't always spot on (it seemed to be almost film-like in some places, and 90s demo-like in others). Still, better than 90% of demos :)

Make that final, it's worth it for a demo like this.

(Also, how the fuck did I miss a new FR demo for so long? I literally just noticed it now!)

i actually quite liked this. it was very refreshing. my two gripes are a) the shading - it's very very distracting (you end up staring "through" things every now and then), and b) the dull camera work and direction. the content itself is captivating enough and makes you want to see more, but the presentation kind of lets it down in a way. it's cool though. and the music, while it does seem pointless at times, is well done.

My problems are the usual people have expressed; some problems with the shading (very nice but not quite there), and camera paths that don't communicate with the viewer too well and are too fast. In any case the thumb has to go up. Spectacular color palette, and the music is very nice, reminds me of Constance Demby a lot.
