Well, I've just started to think of something at last :)
My first idea is: Humans demolished earth so they start looking for other planets to start a new life there... but one of these planets is already taken lol...
I picture the moment when humans meet the other dudes.

This is just a very very rough sketch and I might even redo the whole thing, but it's a start!

Well, just a rough ( very rough ) color test, for choosing a nice color theme.

nice idea .. and nice creature ^_^ ..

Good luck Jassar..

Thanks Explore :)

Here's idea #2:
Have you ever imagined a car crash ( cough! I mean ship crash ) between an alien family and a human one?
I want to capture the moment after the crash when the alien dude is grabing the poor human; ready to kick the shit out of him :D
A sketch is coming soon after I figure out what to add in the scene.

Please tell me which idea sounds cooler, the first or second one?????

Just a quick sketch to hold my thoughts. There will be tons of detail like many aliens in the background watching in fear, and a police officer ( a robot ) floating next to them with his head missing ( the angry alien punched it away! )... and much more I hope :)

The human ( victim ) will be a skinny geek with a funny looking suite :) . I'm thinking of a classical mechanical feel which will be consistant throughout the whole image.

Well! here's the first look for my characters ( the angry alien and the nerdy human :) )many details will be added later. I still have to design the two crashed ships and all the other characters in the background...

Well, not much of an update, I'm still working on the midground planet.. I'm thinking of adding some small huts and buildings there, but not much since most of the planet will be covered anyways.

you are doing well as I see Jassar, keep it up man :)

just one comment -I don't know if am right or not- but the hole on the surface of the main and near planet, itlooks a bit wrong on it's prespective ... I don't know why, but maybe the prespective of the road gave me that feeling ...

anyway my friend it looks greet and maybe am still wrong ... so don't bother yourself :D

LOL! Intergalactic road bully! I love the idea! I think you should show more of the subjects, especially the vehicles. It would be nice to have a whole view of the accident scene behind them. So we can see the alien and human designs of the ship, and what a wreck they both have become. Try to focus more on the characters too. Closer to the viewer will be great. All the best and have fun, Al-Haitham!

Jassar
04-19-2008, 06:59 AM
falcon3d, many thanks man :)

Hey, it's great to see you here Jerome :) , I'm glad that you've finished your amazing entry.
At first I wanted to zoom in and focus on the bully and the accident, then I thought of using the wide space to add some funny details, like a robot police officer on his flying skooter with his hand raised to stop the bully ( and his head is banged off! ), some aliens in the background/foreground watching the action in fear... and so on, I hope it works fine.

Cheers!

Hey Jassar, that alien is looking really great, like a lote the colour palette for him, really nice. Great savage expression :D cool!! Perhaps his left leg need to be more to front to put weight and balance on the alien ( he is lifting a human :D), only a comment :) Again , great work and looking forward for more updates! Cheers my friend :beer:

Hey Jassr, looks really great my friend, the colors used for image are really nice an put a nice cartoon touch on it, really cool . Think you need to put more rim lights and back lights over the alien (and less contrast on the ship tail) to separarate a bit from the space ship tail, only a comment :) Again, great work my friend! Cheers mate!! :beer:

Phoenix, Alsweedy thanks for the support guys! I'm glad you liked it :)

Raul, you are right man, there are still some missing elements from the right side of the whole scene. I will try to fix things asap :wip: , thanks for the note.

Hey Jassar, hahahahah I really like the addition of the little aliens, a really cool touch !! And nice desaturation on the tail of the ship ( is a space schoolar bus ship?? :D), clever!! :D the arm of the big alien popup really well with that change!! Great work my friend !! Cheers :beer:

Hey Jassar, cooool!! really loking good my friend :thumbsup: , like a lot the walkway, perhaps you need to increase a bit the bright for the lights. The expression of the human and his hand raised is totally funny and great hahahahahaa love that touch! :D. I think that you need to take out the ring of the planet cut a bit the nice space of your background. Perhaps a small moon for that planet instead of the rings, and make more brigther or with more rim light the background ships, for now they look on the same plane of the alien and human, only a comment :). Really cool work Jassar, love the humor and expression on your image, great!! :D Cheers!! :beer:

On one of the frozen moons of the frozen planet Thalga there was a happy little alien family flying it's ship all safe and cold until, out of nowhere, something crashed with them! those dumb humans were never supposed to come to these parts.
You can imagine what came next...
