THE_SEVENTH_IDOL_BANNER_by_nEopol

Some of you may remember that in 2006 I began a project called “THE SEVENTH IDOL”. It was primarily an attempt at an online comic but whilst in some ways it was successful, in many others, it wasn’t.

My plan was to create a rendered comic and associated websites etc, and in that way, I learned a lot about website construction, rendering with programs such as Daz 3D and Bryce, as well as becoming members of such online communities as DeviantART and this very site, WordPress.

A little backstory: I’ve been a budding writer since I was 16 and have generally written screen & teleplays, but that have dabbled in many other forms such as short stories, novels, poetry and comic books, and have considered giving songwriting a go to boot!

Journey_Trough_The_Labyrinth_by_nEopolThe 2006 comic had three issues, with the first effectively being a double, but its major flaw that it was too rooted in screenplay writing and plotting, and I could not get my head around the methods of telling the story through a comic, let alone the technical problems of learning new software such as Daz 3D and the highly complex Bryce. Now I’m sure some people would have something to say about Bryce being complicated but to me it was! But I managed to get a few good renders out of it so I was somewhat happy.

 Some of the more obvious drawbacks at the time regarding my Daz 3D work, was the lack of skin textures and other details, aswell as costumes. I hope to showcase some of the improved models and sample clips from the presently abandoned animated version soon.

The comic was made up of several key elements and these were: –

– Background photographs, many of which were taken locally, in Manchester.

After three issues and the resolution of the initial plotline, I put the project on hold and felt that I had learned a lot of  the do’s and don’ts but never really got back into it as I had intended. Life, as it often does, got in the way.

I do very much hope to try this again with the knowledge that I had acquired over the years and was very keen to try animation, which I have tested but still have technical reasons as to why I can’t proceed right now. But here’s a taste of  the original, which for all it’s faults, I must admit, I’m still proud of. Some of the imagery in this issue is in my opinion very good, but the pacing is way to slow and is too dialogue heavy.

Better luck next time…

There are more images available on Flickr & DeviantART.

Anyway, here is the first issue for old times sake…

Flames in the shutter

As I may have already intimated, my most successful images to day have been those of fire. So I’ve decided to showcase a selection of images from the “Flames” set from Flickr.

All these images where taken naturally with no post manipulation.

This image is entitled “Cauldron In The Flame”. This was taken at a high shutter speed but low F stop. This image to me, seems to show a figure holding a cauldron or bowl inside a flame.

Cauldron In The Flame

This image is entitled “Horror’s End?”. Again, this was taken at a high shutter speed but low F stop. It seems to clearly depict a image of a man or woman for that matter, seemingly suffering in a ring of fire.

Horrors' End?

This image is entitled “Hell’s Angel” and simply depicts just that in my eyes. Also, it would seem to be a female form, based on the structure and pose. . This was taken at a high shutter speed but low F stop.

Hell's Angel

This image is entitled “Flaming Duck”. This was taken at a high shutter speed but low F stop. This is one of the clearest images that has come out of this set. It lookd remarkably like a cartoon duck.

Flaming Duck

This image is simply entitled “Flames”, and you may have guest it from that, that this was the first image to be posted. It is a much simpler composition and is nothing more that a piece of paper burning, again at a low F stop and hight shutter. You may be able to make out the letter R withing the flame. This has happened at least twice during this set.

Flames

And finally, this image, entitled “Flaming Macro!”, has often been seen to have certain sexual connotations, but in all honesty, I didn’t see that until it was pointed out! But now, yes, I can see it. I was more taken with fluidity of the flames and the macro of the fir shot. This was taken at a high shutter speed and a higher F stop.

Flaming Macro!
