First let me start off by saying, its been a while. Ive been thinking of a better idea then racing, and somthing just happends, lol.

Well this is the best that I can come up with, and I hope no one eles has the same idea.

Earth has been contact with anouther alian race, and they are wanting peace treaties. In this treaty the alians want access to earth surface. Earth agrees, but not all humans are happy with the changes. So when a diplomatic ship comes to earth to sign the agreement, a bomb gose off destroying the diplomatic ship, and in the end causes war with the other species.

I guess Im back to the start :(

Crits are more the welcomed! :D

I was thinking of what makes people heros to others. Well I thought of Sports heros, musicians ect. Then I thought about how I could incorperate heros into a more futeristic space theam. Then I thought about racing, and this is what I came up with an hour later.

Still dont know if this is going to be my final idea, still playing with it. Crits are more then welcome.

Heres a little something, something I just drew up. One of the ships I plan to use in the final draft.

hey these are good line drawings, maybe theyre ready for some values to better describe the planes, ie. what side of the ships are darker, going away in space.... nice start, good luck!

Thanks, I wasnt sure if that idea hold any weight at all. I've been bussy with fixen my computer so I havent goten a chance to do much with this little shin-dig we got going here.

I had Photoshop, until I lost the CD and my computer crashed on me :/ . I do have painter 8, but I was talking to a friend and he has Photoshop 7, so Im going to buy that off him here soon, since I have a little more experiance with Photoshop then painter.

Thanks guys for your comments, they were all vary encouraging. Ill be posting some more detailed sketches here later today or tomarrow hopfully. Untill then, I gota start crack'n some lead on paper ...

Ive been playing around with Painter tonight. Now that I am a lot more fimilar with the program, I dont think I will be going back to photoshop, lol.

Well I think I got more of a feeling to the picture with that sketch then I did with my last one. Which Im happy about. It could always be better.

Im not sure I will include the people/onlookers I wanted in the final product. Im thinking that it might make things to cludderd. Then agian it kinda gives the audiance a better feel on whats going on. I dont know what to do, need to think about it. Any thoughts would be nice.

On the top right I added a planet, cuz I thought it would be a nice little thing to add.

When I was thinking of the picture I wanted the pilots exiting outa a obsicale in the final moments of the race. But, one of the pilots colideds with anouther while still inside the obsicale, hence the explosion [If you can even tell if it is one, lol] inside the tunnel.

I kinda changed around the fighter I did a sketch of. I just rounded off the top, were the pilot sits. I dont know why I did that, I might change it back in the end. Better looking or not?

So what do you guys think of it so far? Crits more then welcomed! Rip it apart, no worries :D

I was up all night doing this. I belive this is gonna be just what Im gonna do. Now I just gota paint it.

I might post a few other ideas later,just so I can get them out there, if I have any. Keep my options open.

I was looking over my last post, and I saw a few flaws in it, that I didnt see until I already posted it. The prospective isnt exactly perfect.

I was thinking of perhaps changing my concept as a whole. The image lack emotion, and besides the whole idea just isnt all that good. So I think Ill go back to the drawing bords :(

I like the new idea. I know itís just a sketch but maybe some more startling like movements in your characters. Especially the guy pushing the cart.
