This is a simple photoshop sketch. The idea is that you see what the woman in the window is reacting to as a reflection in the glass...

Here's the ship that is the model for the ones that in the image above...

Ok so there's some images of what I have planned. I'm still not sure I like the composition just yet. I think I'll wind up making the bridge of the ship a lot larger in the end and there's probably going to be more people there as well.

The idea is that this woman is a captive on an enemy ship and must watch the destruction of her world but can do nothing about it. It's really going to come down to the expressions on the faces. I want them to do the story telling. I also want it to sort of lead you to your own conclusions. I had originally thought of not saying anything about the concept and just letting people come up with there own ideas about the image.

I'm pretty busy right now so I may not have time to update in a while. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks!

I think it looks nice idea, but i still think that when you tell the history, people come to understand and donīt feel so "flying" in the scene. You created an history yet, why donīt you tell all the history so? Like why the war happened, what mede the the woman canīt do anything to help, what would she do now? and there are any chance to save the planet? How could it happens...things like this. The scene, i think will be very cool!:thumbsup: but well, you may decide about the history. Good luck! Hope to see upgrades soon!:)

Well, I'm not sure if I'm capable of doing all that in a single image but I'll keep all that in mind. Thanks for the comments.

Crap! I just looked at this and realized it's the same as that scene from Star Wars where Princess Lea is on the Death Star and they Blow up Alderan... Crap.

Well, back to the drawing board.

Agreed with that, with no story behind it could be mistaken for something like that, that would be shame because the sketches show promise of a good scene.

And as i now experiencing myself, i am working on a short background story (it is already filling 2 A4's) and with the development of the story more iconic moments arise from it, my first idea of an iconic moment in the space opera is a remote idea at best by now, there are more moments in the story that could make a good iconic moment.

You still have plenty of time, so take some time to create a background story, it will add to your final scene.
