Good to see you here buddy! Remember me from Journey Begins? I learnt a lot from just following your thread.
This is a good start, I like the colors in it. Your uplifting pallete fits this challenge perfectly!

Looks very promising. Not much too see yet, but it reminds me of a chinese ink painting. I like it.

Good luck!

Working around my first sketch without mind of technics, I want a solid composition.
The Alien could be a big organism, and human, just living with them.

Start a bit of detailing the Alien concept, as a snail, I don't want poeple recognise in it a mouth or an eyes. Just some organics part, that doesn't look as knowing nature.

I want to add a bit of life in the scene, and an idea of sci-fi illustration. The little space-ship can be a good way to manage a 2nd focal point on the other 1/3 - 1/3 of the picture.
The boat, may be some lover ? I find it now cheesy... I will certainly remove them in the next update.

Thanks for your comment, I hope not destroy with the WIP the things you like.

Thanks Paul4Wood, that's really what I want to keep on this illustration.

Purple tint is a happy accident due to Painter mixing color at the first sketch + photoshop balance correction. I will try to keep it. Thanks for your comment.

the enviornment is very beautifull whit those vibrant colors, the alien structures look promissing with all the twirls & details! If the ship belongs to the habitants of those buildings would be nice to see a connection in the design. nice effect on the water, great style!
looking forward

Nice design of the snail looking bit that is part or the environment. I haven't read anything so I am assuming that it is part of the environment. I dig the colors. I think you can improve on your composition though. Maybe framing it will help it more, defining a definite forground. Remember to show that relationship between a human and an alien. Later. I will keep an eye on this thread as well. :thumbsup:

A fast removing 'n' crop , now I feel better this illustration and first detailing pass, not a lot of change for the little Jpg preview, but a lot of cleaning and hours.
2835 x 3780 will be my final resolution.

Connection with Alien and human building as a relation is a great idea. I will develop it for sure. Thanks

Hi David! Nice to see you again! I like the strange alien architecture. Perhaps you can depict human and alien in the foreground fishing in the river. One of them caught a giant alien fish! :)

I would really love it if you could expand the canvas further to show more of the gorgeous landscape, and have more depth in the elements as well.

Can't wait to see your further progress!

Hi, Devad, good to see you here and wokring away again! The structure in teh background is really interesting! I've read your psots and it sounds like you're thinking that is the Alien. It reads tight now more as a building... hence people asking you where the human/alien interaction is going to be. Having an alien be that size is tricky if people mistake it for a structure... maybe you could put in more clues. You may need to be less subtle than you may like to fit the rules of the Challange.

Oh, and I agree with Jerome about perhaps expanding the canvas more. I'l love to see more fo the scene myself too.

Good luck!

Thanks, it took time to paint twirl like that , but with this kind of comments I don't regret the time I spent on it.

Thanks, now as I read the other comments, I will add , a beautifull alien place without alien.
I will fix it.

Hello Jerome ! Your ideas are great, and that would totally fit with my landscape.
I will include your observations, cause they are wise. Thanks for the time you took to develop your ideas.

Oh oh ! thanks thebest. Maybe I should work the next resizing as a landscape to better fit with the wallpaper screen.

Hello Walrus ! I'm happy to welcome you in my humble wip thread :) King of drawing and my best advicer. Your totally right , and I will expand the canvas ( I have to make some research to find the best way to make it larger , maybe 16/9 scene, or more square, I have to test ) And I will add some littles people too, and human/alien interaction more evident.
A foreground with character as a main focal would be surely interresting. Thanks again !

This update is near my future final I think, but I will expand a bit larger.

I tweak a bit the colors, and add some layer on the top of my work to add some global shadows and athmospherics effects.

For the story of this picture, I thought of some aliens that could be feed with the polution and bad gaz in exange of pure water,great air and clouds. A great relation with human to grow them on all the planets to make them as heaven.
...
ok, lets dream to a fictive solution for against the polution and global-warming :) how to make it a little more explicit ?

DeeVad
04-09-2008, 01:58 PM
@ thebest
Ok Tony, I made some test about extending it as a 4/3 and 16/9 and it too risky for this piece. But I will made it larger.

@ scala
Bien parti if it was the theme about sci-fi landscape, but I think I'm a bit out of main subject, even if in the "inspiration gallery" there is less evident relationship than in mine about landscape. Thanks for your encouragement.

@ Pearlyking
Rodney Matthews , big honor comparaison !

I find this one :

There is the bridge, the structure , almost the waterfall ... !
Thanks for the association of idea and your comment.

I lke your story. t's a great Idea, To make their ambinent cleaning process more evident I guess you'll need to show some of the polution and that would mess up your beatiful landscape. That would be a tragedy :D
Anyway it's an awesome picture, and I see it makes many people happy too, that's great!

I love both concept and execution, the snail looks aces. Not so fond of the space ship for some reason, I kind of liked the boat better but I understand the cheesy point made... maybe some kind of butterfly to add to the perspective feeling instead? Very beautifl pic anyhow...

this is a beautiful environment concept . i don't really read so easy the pollution idea . but maybe there is no need. maybe someone wasting trash that the snail eats somehow .i dont know .:)

Bravo my friend!, I only have one comment as it is a wonderful image right now, maybe increasing the contrast between the ship and the environment, darkening it a little bit to detach it from the background. Each image I see from your oven is better than the previous one. Good work! :bowdown:
