Will add more as and when!

I'm just puddling round with photoshop to create some scenes which might inspire some kind of tangent which will lead me to a final concept. :buttrock:

It's impossible to block all that we have seen from our minds when trying to create something original. Infact i dont think anything has ever really been truely original. Everything new is a combination of things old. I dont think we should ignore our influences but we must at least make an effort to expand upon them in some way.

In my next few concepts I hope to strike upon something at least partially 'new'. :thumbsup:

And i wish everyone entering this comp good luck. I got a feeling there will be some pretty sweet ideas popping up in this one... :beer:

Great start! Keep up the good work! :applause:

All artists come from a legacy of influences, so its basically impossible to have an original idea. I feel that our original ideas are compilations of all our influnces, thus becoming our own.

OK, enough philosophy! :eek:

I really see a cell splitting within a womb; not sure if thats what you're going for. I just thought I'd throw that out and see what you thought.

I realize your just fussing around right now but: I don't like the light speckled purple in the background. It's too detailed, bringing the background forward and flattens the image.

Whether thats a cell, planet, atom, or whatever its an interesting image. Keep going! :thumbsup:
