Gongratulations to everyone who took part!

This meaningless image is my final, no story, just a simple space scene. My Space "opera".

This is a low quality first try at the whole epic feeling thingy. I'm definitely aiming for the bright side of space. Trying to be funnie iff ya know what I mean.

I didn't upload it twice though...:shrug:
Did I?

In my opinion when you face upwards you're lookin at something big...usually. So with this angle i might have a chance illustrating the whole monumental moment. But the thing is I'd like to add some life to the scene (characters, creatures, maybe some space plants, etc.) so I'd preffer a foreground with an intimate feeling and a midground of action with a monumental background. I think I' going with these three depths of the space scene in my image. Hope fully.

Cheers.

Still haven't got a descent story for my image, but my goal is to try capture the ironic side of (space) war. Would love to capture the stupidity of violence. These images I'm uploading are not really sketches, but not yet line art, somewhere between the two. Tried to experiment with colours (helps me in brainstorming) as well, I might not want space to be pitch black, but these are questions of the near future. Damn these exams! Wish I could draw as much as I like...sigh, ...some day. My advice to EVERYONE: try study what you love doing otherwise University will be a frustrating experience!

So here's a quick photoshop upgrade of my second sketch which I named concept sketch#1 by the way :/, nevermind...still warming up (while others are already finished :(

the stupidity of violence...well you can't actually see any violence in this image, but soon...

Luckily no one's watching this topic so I can atrt all over again...:D
Truth is that I'm not studying art at school and barely have time to do this (I'd love to though...)

So far these 3 concept sketches are experiments.

My to do list is:

Figure out a propper story!
Block out the scene, considering foreground, background, composition...etc
Make up my mind about trying to fit some characters in the scene or not
And then just finish the rest...:D

Well whatever this is (i think it's a composition experiment) the space ship (in the foreground) could be a kind of style I might stick with.
If I have enough time that is. Bloody exams...:(

Hi!

Definetly go with the previous design..

Whip up colors from a real architecture picture and you will end up with pretty picture :)
Ignore background everything.. do it very simple and use a idea of silhouttes of people admiring gift what would symbolize Grand Space Opera.



Just go hardcore and whip up a winner in a week!
Thats it :)

btw. cool surename you got there :D

I know it sucks, but I can't finish this contest due to exams. :( I'm quite sad, because participating in this contest (and making a descent image) would have be a dream come true for me just for the learning experience. One day I will do what I love doing : CG. One day...

Cheers.

Adam

p.s.: thanks for the two posts! :)

I finally found something I can relate to: the thing is wether it's monumental or not I'm sticking with it. And F**k my exams, I'll get through them somehow...

So, my story is: NOTHING, it's a portrait of an old SPACE COWBOY (mexican style) who's sick 'n tired of the whole space war (that will be going on in the "monumental" background). This will hopefully be space like you've never seen it before! Or have you?! :) The final image in my head is way more sophisticated (obviosly) than this FINAL CONCEPT SKETCH! :P

Wow! What a difference a good night's sleep makes. :) Glad you decided to finish, and I hope your exams go well in spite of it. That's one funky image, it really makes me laugh with the eyeballs dangling from his sombrero and the labels for "red rock", etc. If it makes you feel any better I'm pretty far behind also, but I'm gonna see this through to the end. Good luck, my friend.

I'd consider this line art, allthough it still is a concept of the image. I sorted out the colors. Soon I'll start th real line art. Gotta study some though :(

I like your clean linework. You have some pretty interesting ways of working out your composition :)

Wish I could say more, but good luck to you (on both your exams and the competition!)!

Actaully this is a coloring WIP, but it's also a composition correction and line art test all in one:) so the point is I did color it a bit (mountain, background) I saved the spaceship from my other concept, cause i liked it a wee bit, but now I think it has to be one of the main "epic" objects (besides the montain)...gotta hurry though, oh and of course the character just got too dark, but that's okay this IS a WIP, ain't it fellaz?!

this one is a chcoloring wip of the mexican space mariachi. Not exactly what I'm aiming for, but...black isn't easy to handle!

downstairs is me looking at my watch, going nuts about the "tight" deadline well, should've started earlier, but you know how it is! IT'S LIKE THAT AND - THAT'S- THE WAY- IT _IIIzzz.

go everybody work,work,work !

Damn! Have to prepare for my physics exam on monday...
Will try to organise this image in my head (while concentrating hard on electrons, and protons or whatever I have to learn) in the meantime. I know my image is not action packed, but who knows... rethinking a few stuff

everybody WORK!!!

Hi Adam,
You know my opinion on your works, your geometric approach is unique and I especially like your colours.
I am very interested in seeing your final version.

This is a really nice alternative interpretation of the subject.
The composition is well thought out and the 'cell-style' colouring works very well.

The texures that are indicated in the rear structure work so well, I would suggest introducing faint textures on some of the other larger flat shapes (perhaps the spheroid in the top left corner?)

Lovely work - keep going mate :thumbsup:

This has got absolutely nothing to do with a mega huge epic space blast, but what the heck, there must be some quiet planets in the universe, where even space cowboys get the blues (or reds, blacks, and beiges)... "whateveeeeeeeeeeeer" (Pablo Fransisco - my favourite stand up comedian).
