Leaving the warp

Posted in Uncategorized on February 14, 2011 by destrega85

Ok as I said Im still animating the space scenes, and just wanted to show a first test. When I think about a ship leaving the warp and entering rality again, it shall look like  that the surrounding should be really morphing around and perspectives are getting distorted. And of course: Light flashes, beams and stuff^^ Also I distorted the planet during the first big explosion….dont know if its cool, I might leave that away in the final shots, what do you think? If I wanna leave this in, I should add some waves going out from the center of the explosion to show more the distortion effect I think….

Hi Guys,

worked a lot on different things regarding Lordi, but nothing fancy to show:) Anyway just wanted to let you know, that lots of progress has been made the last days and weeks. Im working together with Bijan on the homepage for Lordi and its already a lot done. Need to render out several images, collect data from the team members and write descriptions. But its already a lot done, and Im sure it will go sooner online as I expected. Once this is the case this blog  will vanish, and we all can chill and hang out on the official lordi page (for an unofficial movie hehe) and you can read and write in the blog you will find there. Of course no data will be lost, so all that has been written here is already transfered on the new one and availabe in the archives. However, the new one is visually more attractive^^ On the other side, im doing all the previs scenes, and cut them together, so that I can get a feel for the sequences I need, what already can be rendered and so on. Its looking really nice already to see how all the different scenes are coming together now:) Well, but this is nothing I could show now here, it is so Wip, wouldn’t make sense:)

Allright, seeya soon


New Frame

Posted in Uncategorized on January 26, 2011 by destrega85

Hi guys, new update.

I worked a lot the last days on Lordi and made some good progress. The first sequences are rendered and already integrated in the final Film project files. I added some atmospheric music from “Lustmord”, a dark ambient band and it fits perfectly:D Of course I will remve that music later through my own compositions – already got some themes in mind.

Also Im happy that I found a new member for my team who is willing to model a Khorne Bloodletter for me:) Dont know if you guys know my extremely huge Warhammer 40k image “until the day we die” which I did with my friend Martin (who has modeled the Thunderhawk), but there were severeal Blootletters displayed. However they were created for this image, and the quality is not acceplable for my purposes anymore, so I have to do them again. But now Farhad will do that job and is happy to support the movie:) That saves me a lot of time and so the movie will be released faster:) However, there is still soooo much to model:D not to speak about animation:D

Another point is that our member Bijan, who already became a good fellow of mine is already programing the official Lordi website. I try to think of a webdesign and that stuff (im not so good in designing things 😀 ) and I plan to publish the first teaser for the launch of the site, which will be probably in 5 months – so mid of this year. Once the site is online, you can follow the progress either on the page, or still on the blog, because they are connected together and the updates and news are available and identical on both sites.

And as a last news, there might be a sequence in the film, where the eagle of Torquemada can be seen. I gave that task to Ben for modeling and Johan for rigging. Anyway if it seems to get too complicated or too time consuming we might leave it away. However I would like to show this eagle, because it is a very known attribute of Coteaz. But later in battle, this bird better stays in its cage on the Inquisition ship:D Better dont even think about a fighting double headed eagle against Khorne bloodletters:D And in the meantime, Martin is working on building the flight deck, that is gonna be awesome I bet:)

So until then, hope you like the next frame of the movie:)


ps: The Warrior challenge ends on next monday at midnight, I uploaded all files and now all I can do is wait:) Here is a turntable of Dorn in full HD if you are interested

Hi there, just wanted to help our member eZieweZie to get attention with his Survey he made for “Ultramarines the…well….movie”^^

It does not take much time and hopefully represents a solid opinion of the fans what they think of the film and what could be improved in the next one (if there is one)

I already completed the survey, and if you guys are in the mood for it too, just check it out:


We have reached our destination

Worked on some interiors in the ship and on the space sequences. Not sure if this will be a frame in the movie, but I just wanted to render a view of the planet by sunrise. I completely rewoked Occulta Maioris, simply because it was just a google grabed mars texture:) Now it is done completely procedural without any use of textures. Consisting of 4 differnet layers (planet, water, atmosphere, clouds) I rendered it using displacement to enhance the surface effect.  Also I renewed the materials on the ship and added extra textures, so that Andreas ships will look even better in the final shots. Will show some screens maybe the next days – or I keep it hidden from public first^^

Btw the Warriors challenge deadline was extended which is very bad, cause I was finished and all other entrys not:D That meant really good winning chances, but now it is extended to end of january and the competition is much harder then when all are finished. Hm, too bad – that was the sense of a challenge to make a character just in time…Anyway I was chosen already on the frontpage as a “hot entry”:D With me, only 4 or 5 entries got that honour. Hope that helps getting a price:) And my image of  Torquemada is today featured as a Daily Deviation on Deviantart and I got tons of mails and comments – already 6000 views in a few hours. I added the adress to this blog, maybe we got some new fans then following our progress:)

prepare for landing:)
