View Full Version : Atlantis: Shane Madden : Scavengers

07 July 2006, 05:57 AM
Hello all, I'm kind of new to CGS and came across this and thought I would get in on some of the action. Here is my concept for the piece. I'm a little late in the game so I won't bore you with some of my other sketches till later. This is the one that started to stand out for me so I hope you guys like it and think its worth pursuing! My take on the whole idea is that Atlantis is in ruins and is kind of a mish-mash of scavenged parts off ship wrecks and such yet they use technology far beyond our own mixed with it. It's quickly becoming late in the night, but I wanted to post so I could hopefully get some feedback before I get back at it tomorrow. It's more so just roughed in a bit. The "monolithic" towers I have an idea to make them kind of like generator towers but made up of a mess of old ship parts. I also have to play with the colors and lighting right now its kind of all over. Let me know what you guys think so far. I will post the final concept some point tomorrow! Thanks all, Look forward to your comments!

Had some early morning inspiration. Here is the updated version. Still playing around with lighting, colour and some final details but almost ready to dive into flushing it out more. Look forward to hearing what you guys think!!

first, welcome aboard. :)
Sec, about your concept, it will be surely interesting but i've a little difficulty to find the strong point of composition.
My eyes goes left and right but no first plan comes to me directly.
I've see your site, and i'me not worry about the final image :thumbsup:

Thanks alot SweD for the warm welcome. Your right, I need to have a more centered focus to help draw the viewer in better. I have a couple ideas hopefully they will work.
But in the mean time here the most recent version. Hope you all like!

Hey all! Think I'm done working for the day, just wanted to keep the thread up to date with the latest, so I could get as many of your comments and suggestions I can! hope you like!

interesting concept! I know you're probably still at the design stage but will you be making those three buildings similar or are you going to make some subtle changes to it, to make them unique from each other?

Good Luck and keep up the good work.

pieces don't really work together that well, and I wouldn't use photoshop grass brush for something like this... but nice idea, good luck

maybe a bit too cluttered, but there's definitely a lot of things to look at :)

Thanks guys! yeah I kind of went a little over board with adding stuff. great thing is with all the layers i can go back and just turn some stuff off for an output for my portfolio! Thanks for the feedback! :thumbsup:
