Just reserving some space, just in case one of my ideas works out.
I have been thining about the reinvisioning of a historical battle or event
but turning it in to a glalactic scale.
for example: what would D-Day look like in space 400 years in the future?
or Lewis and Clark 2215? How about space age Christopher Columbus or Ferdinand Magellan?
I am looking forward to seeing everyones progress.
these challenges have always been inspiring to me.

Concept Sketch: first pass Columbus distant future

This is a first pass at a distant future Columbus.
I am thinking it may be a triptic...
I have an other idea that may be cool too.
Same theme but just a single image.
let me know what you think!

Nice ... very nice .... finally something different frome space battles and huge spaceships. It all depends on the judges character. If they apreciate at the true value an original ideea, you have a huge advantage... if they are more impressed by huge fleets and alot of destruction, you don't stand a chance....

As i see it: you should do the view from a cave or some sort ... and as it would be through the eyes of a inhabitant of the planet... not necesarily humanoid .... nor a green/gray alien ... the base ideea: "columb" discovers this new land, but that is not a "nobody's land".

Good Luck !! .. i like your ideea.

Well theres a tiny problem if you use the bottom concept like you drew it. I don't think it would be all that great of an accomplishment for that guy to cross the ocean if a city is like a mile away...

I think these are epic! I really like the top idea. And the bottom would be my seconed choice. Maybe if the ship were even bigger in the bottom one, that would be great.

Nice theme and really beautiful concepts!!

I'm not sure what the rules are on a triptych..? (i think it's a great idea) Maybe it's worth checking on the Q&A thread before you get too much done...? You might have to revert to the single image (a development of the last one on the beach would be my favourite if you can really make it seem he's arrived from space... natives are a good idea too).

Good luck... the 2D's looking fantastic... can't wait to see the 3D!!

Really nice concepts. I prefer 2 but with some more love on it. The whole idea is pretty different and new! Nice one

Concept Sketch: Character Concept

Here is a quick pass at Christopher Columbus 2492. I like the direction this is going in. Now on to the 3 ships.
That is going to be my greatist challange.
I'm not so good with the Sci-Fi stuff.
I guess that's why I always do it witha historical twist. That way it is closer to my comfort zone.
