Latest Update: Post Effects and Compositing: enhanced storm matte

My 2D challenge: (

09 September 2005, 02:38 AM (

This concept image was conceived over about 6 guinness stouts in a mexican restaurant at the bar counter.

Sketched over 4 pieces of A4 paper in a crucifix format.

Theme is my vision of how spectacular it will be, should 'The Arrival' finally happen. All major cultures in the world have an "arrival" element in their history, usually accompanied by judgement first, then cleansing and finally salvation. It is not necessarily religious at all, as even many modern Americans (generally atheists) look forward to an "alien" arrival to salvage this planet from the ravages of greed, socialism, capitalism and whatever -ism of human beings, including artists, should they consider themselves somehow exempted from this coming retribution.

Yeah, im a fatalist and i need to now go see my psychiatrist for my weekly session.

All the best to challengers.

Cool sketch! Interesting idea. Keep it going can't wait to see more from you! :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:21 PM
Great idea! Looking forward to seeing more....

Thank you to all who commented my sketch.

These will be ships that accompany the arrival. The deployment stations will be the formation that will energise the appearance of the Messenger.

The panoramic matte painting will be the support vista for the Messenger and support stations.

There are many planes, i.e. flat panel like panoramas behind the Messenger. That is caused by the Alien's Inter-Dimension propulsion technology. As they break out from revolving dimensions, our reality is broken and forms these corrupted dimension planes in the wake of the Arrival of the Messenger.

Being multi-dimension representations, some planes tell the future in brief revelations as shown in the multitude of worshippers inside the plane behind the Messenger's pelvic area, a foretaste perhaps to the real intentions of the Arrival of this Messenger...

Looks interesting.
I look forward to seeing the final composition with light source and all elements in place.
The cruciform will work well, but it is worth considering an alternative viewpoint than the head on for your sketch.

Good luck

09 September 2005, 05:26 AM
Oh..your ship design's very good. Wonder where would the ship go on the final image. :) Looks cool both sketches. I like this thread more and more

first stage modelling oof the Support station. These humongous stations will be in formation over the Russian Steppes where they will energise the appearance of 'The Messenger', a Fourth-Generation HaloPhotomic Entity.

09 September 2005, 04:49 PM
i couldn't understand the concept image but i think i will find out by the updates coming.

09 September 2005, 05:39 PM

09 September 2005, 01:52 AM

Dinodog: Always good to find another Malaysian. As for the tummy. Its too LATE!!:scream:
While I liked your 2d challenge, you need to clarify your future designs. Muchos gracias for your comments.

modelling more or less completed. Detailing courtesy of greeble. Early light test to check modelling effect.

09 September 2005, 01:56 PM (

Main body of the freighter. The Gyro Assembly should be completed monday. This ship will be seen around the panoramic of the final composition.

09 September 2005, 02:19 PM (

Very early make-up and lighting test. Ignore the Annie Lennox hairstyle, just didn't want her catching a cold. eyelashes yet to be modeled.

09 September 2005, 02:34 PM
I like the concept sketch and the ships. About the makeup, the lipstick is way too much (must be my bad taste). :) Good luck.

09 September 2005, 03:20 AM (

Completed Gyro-Sync_freighter.

09 September 2005, 03:32 AM
Hi, i liked the progress of the ship, the design is very good. good luck

09 September 2005, 03:38 AM
The lower wings look a little flimsy compare to the rest of the structure, but very cool design.

09 September 2005, 03:44 AM
making good progress. your Gyro-Sync_freighter looks pretty sweet too. keep it up

Awesome work !

Early matte of the main panoramic dimension plane behind the Fourth Generation HaloPhotomic Entity.

Dimension planes are created by the inter_dimension corruption of our own reality caused by the aliens Inter-Dimension Propulsion Technology.

This will be the main dimension plane. Other planes will form and distort in formation behind The Entity.

Some planes will depict the future and some planes the past.

09 September 2005, 07:36 AM (

Completed deployment station model. These stations will be seen near or at the bottom of the panoramic in the final composite. Perhaps one or two near the flanks where fighters and freighters may emerge from.

All ships are Bio-Radial Linked. So some sort of energy will be in formation around all ships.

hi vincent1
interesting concept! and the ships design is nice!keep up the good work!

09 September 2005, 08:21 AM (

Very early composition and composite test to key the feel of the expanse of 'The Arrival".

09 September 2005, 01:33 PM
Hey Vincent,

I like your concept , mine is fairly similar to yours . I like the view of the terrain and atmosphere you have created. The ships are okay but I think they could use a little more detail, maybe windows or something.

Keep it up it is look good.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 02:32 PM
Wooo... Cute landing ships in a crowd! Marvelous idea until i see how u merged em into dat beautiful bg.

so, the lady wif spreaded giant wing will be in the middle of em?!

Very fast work here ...
I will try to get some beer to wake my brain from now on. Uhh. Prob not! i am kinda broke recently.

09 September 2005, 02:01 PM (

Model and texture and lighting test of HaloPhotomic Entity.

09 September 2005, 12:31 PM
Hi Vincent,
Yep, that sound like a good concept. I like it and I'm curious to see how it will look in the end. Nice first modeling of the lady.
Keep it up! :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 04:31 AM (
