thx guys.....

I am thinking about making a journey in time , somthing like a ship traveling in the ages .
the image will be divided in 3 parts for 3 ages and the ship will appear in all of them ..
no more for now ,I'll give u more details when the idea is completed in my mind ..

Very clean and easy to read. The train is coming out nice too. One thing that I miss in this, is a sence of depth - perspective, as the train progresses through time.

I still thinking about the compination of the ages ... I might use depth of field or somthing like a glow or fade out in the seperated boxs .... :banghead:
still trying to figure out the desgin of the building in each age cause I want a famous building style to represent the ages (past ,present ,future)... :banghead:

u can make it as follow
first don`t use a depth of field or anything make every scene alone then combine them together
as if they were like this in reallity
for the buildings
past: the great pyramid with a sand around it
present:use any building
future : make a robots flying around a shiny tower

hope that this helps :)

I'll do that but the problem is the combination betwen the building ,I must use some kind of blur or glow to separate betwen the building or it will be like they all in the same area or same field ..
any way that's still too fare to think about it I'll keep modeling in this time ...
thx again for ur help man :thumbsup:

Interesting idea. You might consider a view along the track to where the future is on the horizon line. Also, just an idea but I think as the train is moving along the track you might decide to make the portion of the train's caboose as if it doesn't belong to the "future" portion of the train. As if the rear was dilapidated in some way as if it has come from the past.

Interesting idea ,I was thinking about it but I think it will be hard to model ... I think I'll need a desgins for several trains along the ages ... oh I think it need alot of search .

any way really nice idea se7enthcin thx for help and I'll try to do it but u will help me with more ideas about the combination betwen these desgins of the train cause it will be the same problem as the combination of the ages .... :banghead:

Yeah yeah yeah. Dodo, I can't wait to the rest. The train has a kinda retro feel to it. Time is a journey isn't it...well anyway, cutting it short - I'll definitely be monitoring your progress... see you around.

Ok need to think again about the final image ...
here is my problems ---->

area (1) : the foreground I don't know what this area will contain I think I need to build some kind of a station or a standing characters..

area (2,3) : the blend betwen ages still a big problem and the buildings style depending on the age is still not clear in my mind .. I need to think about a symbol buildings to represent the age

area (4) : the background the sky how it should look like and the blending area (2,3) what is the effect in the sky??

doted area : it's the same problem as the last one the blen and it's effect on the train cars ... and the idea of making the train in separet parts in each age..
ok that's all tell now ..

I agree with making different parts of the train being constructed from materials of its time, as the train moves, it morphs. I would work on your camera angle, perspective can take a lot of time, I spent a week or too just deciding what camera angle, and that doesnt include lighting.

You could blend the three time segments in post, or do a stargate style, mirrorish portal between them, emitting volumetric lights in both directions, but that could be post too.

I like your train a lot so far, and your concept is great!
Keep us updated!
