Ok, let´s talk about my idea for my very first entry in a Cgtalk challenge.
As you know, the human race, some years ago was taken by the revolution of technology and machines. It turned us dependent, always. On this challenge I want to explore this relationship of dependence, explore in a deep way, putting the many circumstances that make the dependence in the same time critical and helpfull for mankind.
The main idea for the image is to put in evidence that machines are the biggest "creatures" that exists, and compare them to the weak and small humans, of obviusly this is a relation of strenght and dominance.
At this post I´ll not tell you about what I´llput in the composition...for the next post I´ll put the concept art.

Hope you enjoy it!
Hugs and good luck for all

I apologize to post the initial development in a server out of cgtalk, I assume I´ve comitted a mistake. So, there´s the same image, now at the correct place of posting. I´m sorry for any incovenience and soon I´ll post the concept sketch.

Hello cgmaniacs!

The comments are being very important to improove the work.
I choose this color treatment because I think I can give a more drammatic expression to the scene than full color, at a first time I've chosen to work black and white, but it not give the work a special effect.

That is for now,

See ya and thank you again

Well, abnout the sky, I think I can work more on it, perhaps make the clouds more scattered, not too dense and worl on the colors too.

Hi crew, that´s the sky change. I think this new art better than the previous, so more colors and contrast, more lighting too. Hope you enjoy this "new scene".

Hey one more brazilian on the thread!

cara eu estou tendo um problemasso com esse céu, estou tentando chegar à um resultado legal sem referências, mas acho que vou ter que começar a usar, pois não estou conseguindo um contraste legal nas luzes das nuvens, até mesmo no formato delas e na dinâmica. estou testando várias formas e espero chegar rápido num resultado que agrade.

os cabos estao estranhos. eles se mantendo do mesmo tamanho indo em direcao ao horizonte tiram a sensacao de profundidade do cenario, q faz perder a nocao do primeiro plano q vc ta fazendo.
espero q vc corrija isso.

LOL no...Im barely a novice at drawing and only dream of achieving the art you guys produce. I just happened to be browsing thru and your piece caught my eye...which is saying alot because I dont have a whole lot of interest in sci-fi ....Im more of a fantasy gal...

I must say watching how you put these pieces together is quite intriguing and makes me want to try all the harder....keep up the good work Im sure Ill be back to comment again:thumbsup:

I think this challenge, as the first I worked on gives the opportunity to learn more and more watching the members paintings and discussions about the works too. The thread is a great show of reference we can use now or in our future works too improove how we´ll do it, and getting the best way to reach being good artists ever.
I imagine that lot of people learn just getting the masters as reference, and get the self way to create a style and technique, be painting or 3d art.
I want to thank all the artists that have entered at the challenge for the good art, replies and support for all the users, giving more power to that CG comunity.

See ya on the next up!

orange looks ok for me for the robot. you can desat it a bit if you want to tone it down.
opinion - i think the robot creature needs more volume with regards to metal texturing. its feet are a good peg. and id go softer on the fire from the boosters- it does look cool though. and last - smoke coming out from the creature can be a different color - it doesnt have to be black.

ok talked too much already. these are all just my opinions. kepp it up :applause: :thumbsup:
