Hello, I've finally decided to enter. Hope to learn as much as from "The Journey Begins". I'm really not happy with my concepts and hope to get some ideas from you. Wish you all luck in the event.
So my first idea is to create some kind of future rhino (alien) which was caught because people want his horn. Second idea is just simple man being atacked by aliens. I realised how weak I am in concept art because I couldn't draw nice alien-rhino...

man concept, not sure were to use it but it's just free sketch I did tonight, alien sketch (based on the man sketch)coming...

Ok, now I have some clearance. Imagine that people fight arm to arm with bigger and stronger aliens. Alien nature is frightening but they're good inside. But people are affraid of them anyway, they have to fight evil enemy - race that wants to rule whole universe, that's why the alliance is made between two races - good alien and human.
What we have here is big,experienced alien leader - captain and his soldiers - human soldiers, they're about to do some movement, they stopped to find the strategy (people waiting for an order). I say "people" because I want viewer to feel like human (that's why the horizon line is on the same height as human's eye).
Please c&c me =)

I like the colors in these latest sketches, the story also matches the picture very well. If we could see a bit of the battle or some smoking rubble in the background I think it could help sell the story even more. keep painting!

Hi there Przemek, I like this concept. Reminds me of Terran and Protoss Alliance (Damn, when is the new Starcraft sequel coming out?!). With cool lighting effects and details, this can be an amazing piece! The concept rendering is great!

You mentioned looking for a feel and mood, well I'd say you definitely found it. Very nice palette and mood so far! The striped green light around the alien makes him a bit hard to read. I don't know that that's a bad thing, either, it adds a bit of mystery to the piece. Anyhow, good luck developing it more!

It's been some time since they're awaken. Hungry, over the universe they search for new souls.
They've conquered many races, including Humans and...after hardest battle so far...mighty Skurths.
They keep on searching into every litle piece of every planet system ... to feed their hunger.
Many years after their visit, little group of survivors on Earth started to organise. They searched for allied races and that's how they found Skurths last forces. Secret alliance was signed. Now small allied groups containing both races search for other races to join the alliance.
This is how the story starts and my pic is about (story written in earlier posts):
People fight arm to arm with bigger and stronger aliens. Alien nature is frightening but they're good inside. People are affraid of them anyway, they have to fight evil enemy - race that wants to rule whole universe, that's why the alliance is made between two races - good alien and human.
What we have here is great,experienced alien leader - captain and his soldiers - human & alien soldiers, they're about to do some movement (searching the planet for allied race - perhaps going to another planet), they stopped to find the strategy (people waiting for an order).
