View Full Version : The Paper Fox iPad project
09-13-2011, 05:57 PM
I've been a lurker here for quite some time now - I finally feel I have something of worth to show :)
Plus, I saw that I'd been mentioned in the "faceting as a stylistic choice" thread, so I thought I'd show my face :) (thanks gavku (http://www.polycount.com/forum/member.php?u=15100))
I've started work on an iPad + Android book with the working title of The Paper Fox. I've created some characters for the book and an environment thus far (some examples below).
I'm using the crowd funding model to sell fine art prints of the work I've done thus far to kick the book into high gear. So far the funding has gone amazingly well, but I'm hoping to raise enough cash to bring some other folk on board and turn it into an animated, scored, interactive experience. More info in the links below. If anyone has any questions about the technical aspects, I'd be happy to answer them!
And if you reeeaaaalllly like the idea/concept/art, please think about buying a print (comes with a snazzy badge!) ;)

This is an awesome idea! I was sold on the look after the first picture, then even more with that turtle. This environment is making it hard to not like it also! I think you've got a really interesting style and I want to see those things moving.

This is amazing. Absolutely fucking amazing. I love this kind of art style, the color palette oh man! Thanks for posting this!
09-13-2011, 06:26 PM
I love this art style I think it is a great idea.
09-13-2011, 06:51 PM
I have to say this looks so great! Love the style and it's got a real polished look to the papercraft style. Very nice work.
09-13-2011, 07:04 PM
This looks amazing. I'm not sure how well these characters would animate, but I'm sure it wouldn't be that big of an issue. Again, looks fantastic.
Daaamn this style rocks soo bad..
While ipad picture book is all good, rad and well, this should totally be a video-game, just saying :P
A real pleasure to watch!
So, is that simply a tiling paper texture ?
Gorgeous stuff, congrats!

i love this.
excellent work, i'll show my daughter tomorrow and get some feedback for you from her if you'd like? :D
09-13-2011, 07:38 PM
loving it! and i guess this won't happen, but i reaaaaaaally want to see this in motion.
09-13-2011, 07:58 PM
Simply lovely and inspiring! as soon as I get money I'd be happy to support and buy some prints.
09-13-2011, 08:10 PM
Thanks guys. I'm really encouraged by your enthusiasm! :)
@TeriyakiStyle - thankyou sir, that would be excellent!
@eqil - i have a couple of friends who are very keen to animate it. Im hoping i can pay them for their time because i'd love to see it in motion too.
@almighty_gir - haha most certainly. This is pretty much for adults to read to their kids, so im hoping to inspire both audiences :)
@pior - yep - all tiling textures with a normal, displacement and diffuse.
Thanks again guys.
Feel free to repost this anywhere you like, the more people that see the pozible page and increase the funding, the better the project will get.

Lovely art style
09-13-2011, 09:54 PM
any chance of getting some wires on those models? I'm interested to see how you got the paper look - it's very convincing.
would love to see a game made in this style.
09-13-2011, 10:02 PM
This should be a video game. DOT!. [in my language it means the end... ]
just imagine, skippy animations, and a relaxing game play, pretty nice music and absolutely amazing art style... it would be an amazing game actually, provibably would sell really good
09-13-2011, 10:30 PM

09-13-2011, 10:38 PM
This is o-sum.
09-14-2011, 12:41 AM

09-14-2011, 12:46 AM
Very very awesome, you've hit the jackpot with this art style ! :)
Absolutely beautiful! I too would love to see a game in this art style. :)

09-14-2011, 02:20 AM
Thanks again guys! I'm really happy that you all like the concept.
@Sectaurs - i'll post up some wires in the next day or two.
@Gannon - when i get into full production (once the funding part is over) i might try making a vid :)
I can totally see this concept as a game also. If the book works out well, then I'm certainly not ruling it out.
09-14-2011, 02:25 AM
Looks really really cool and best of luck with the project! :)
09-14-2011, 02:34 AM
I don't like it... I think it needs more space marines, a piss filter, maybe some explosions? I dunno, something is off...?
But in other news, I'm totally fucking in LOVE with it :D Really, really fantastic art design, so fresh, haven't seen it before. Colour me interested :D
09-14-2011, 02:28 PM
my daughter loves it mate :D
09-14-2011, 02:36 PM
This is incredible. i cannot wait to see what you do with the project and I will definitely be buying a copy when it is finished. if I can i shall give my support as well. Good luck!
09-14-2011, 03:32 PM
holy...wow. Great stuff
Beautiful, a nice breath of fresh air.
09-14-2011, 07:31 PM
oh, just as a side note.
the direwolves latin name is Canis Dirus, it's quite specifically different from Canis Lupis, which is the latin term for many wolves including some dog species.
09-14-2011, 08:56 PM
This looks amazing. Can't wait to see it finished, good luck!
09-14-2011, 11:42 PM
That looks absolutely gorgeous. Please please put up some making of videos. Good luck!
09-15-2011, 03:09 AM
Fantastic look. Would love to see more on this.
09-15-2011, 03:51 AM
@almighty_gir - haha great! The target audience is pleased. It bodes well! Thanks for the Latin tip as well. The Latin I've learned is clearly just from wikipedia ;)
@Sectaurs - As requested, here's some wires. As you can see, they're very low poly and quite simple.
09-15-2011, 05:06 AM

09-15-2011, 12:51 PM
Dude could you take a 1080p screen cap of the 3rd picture? That would be an awesome background.
09-15-2011, 12:52 PM
I found your project blog at the start of the week and posted it everywhere I could.
Lovely, charming, fresh, inspiring work. Those wire shots are great, too. Awesome stuff :D
Can't wait to see where this goes.
09-15-2011, 01:02 PM

This is absolutely gorgeous. Will be spreading your links everywhere haha
Also, please tell me we will be able to buy larger prints. A friend really wants an A3 size poster of the stag for example and I would love one of the fox, the stag, the wolf, the turtle and and and...
09-16-2011, 04:05 AM
Man, totally blown away by the support guys! :)
@Talon - thanks for the pledge! Getting closer to the next target every day :D
@urgaffel - thanks for spreading the foxy love, the more the merrier! As far as other sizes for prints, if there's enough demand i could certainly work up some larger sizes.
@BARDLER - i may crank out some custom wallpapers down the track and stick them on the blog :)
Thanks for all that reposted as well. Really appreciate it.

Love this, best of luck getting it out there!
09-17-2011, 09:56 PM
I absolutely love this, jigatron. I can't wait to see more from this universe! If I had to pick something to improve upon, I'd say your environment could be a bit more populated. None the less, great stuff man.
