Concept Sketch: First sketch



Unfortunately I still can't paint.... Aside from that, this serves as the Concept Sketch milestone. (Don't worry, the nausea will settle in a few minutes).

This is what I'm considering right now, though it apparently needs a much more clear colour perspective and a bunch of other things - things that will become more understandable as soon as I enter the third dimension.

What you're looking at is the action-packed background (huh?) along with Lord Panzerpants and his trusty battledroid in the foreground. The final POV will most likely change quite a bit, but this will have to do for now.

A wet sock and a bar of soap.

No, seriously though, it's painted with a neat little app called ArtRage (google it) and my trusty old mouse. Someone who actually can paint would probably make some stunning stuff with that program, which incidently happens to be freeware as well.

Interesting stuff man... I think you should try getting the sketch a little bit more detail, so people that look for details (like me) can talk more about the picture.

All I can say about the sketch is that looks very dramatic :\

I'm totally with you there, ARSA - even though I will not do anything further with that particular painting, there will be more sketches showing partial details later on... I usually work through it in this order - rough blocking/composition first, then separate detail sketches for the involved objects before moving on to the actual modeling.... So, hang in there more to come...

Hey James................ I can see very easily where you are headed.The sense I get is a very dramatic fierce and intense battle.Large in scope.I like the character ideas,the angles,the BG that goes with them.The whole scene carries alot of weight..................

My only comment on the help front would be to possibly move the characters just a bit to the center of the picture,as of now the building to the far right looks to be partially growing out of Lord Panzerpants head.......Just a slight crit and tip.Other than that I see epic battle scene in the making with a grand scale written all over it..............

Ah, much appreciated pointer! Although a building in his head strikes me as rather interesting, it's not what I had in mind this time (shocker!) - I'll make sure to rearrange that when the time comes

Sidenote: Haven't found your thread yet, Virtuoso... You ARE going to enter, yes?

Great story ... (why don't they just install the newer CPU in another location, and switch between them instantaneously ? ... oh ... i know ... because there wouldn't be any battle left .... )... that was just something that striked me as i was reading the story ... it's no big deal .... the image is all that matters....
So, looking forward in seeing images to depict the original story... i'm kinda' tired of huge battles and huge spaceships gathered in a huge fleet... it's too common...

Good luck and keep it up !!! ... u've got something there and i really think (hope) you (anyone) won't be judged by the concept sketch

PS: why did u choose such a ... horrible ... name as panzerpants ?
