Hey KoryH ... nice to see u again , u and your work man....I like the historical twist u are giving to the look of your character.....and from the prev concepts ...i like them both very much althoughi have to say that the first one (view from inside spacecraft) reminds me a lot of StarWars ...a classical view where Darth Vader turns around and go in the com room to choke to death that other one with that guy on his knees is so great ...they look relaxed as if they found a new land.

Have fun ....

Great idea , dude ! Excellent pics , also !
You would have done mighty well in 2D too , you in that too, or just 3D ?

tough luck eMPeck :(
well , your Columbus is from the year 11000 while this one was from what,
2500 ? so it's not totally the same .. You could still work with the idea ,
maybe choose another explorer ?

Seems that there will be more "historical" images- I am going into similiar direction by myself (of course I do not want even to try to pretend I am as good as You but it's always good to see somebody thinking along the same lines).

Lovely character. I am not sure about first concept- IMHO third images palette doesn't seem to go well with other two but...well.. that's just a sketch so it will be probably refined I guess.

Yeah! very nice concept you have here ..... And I really love the idea of mixing past history with future science-fiction .....

Good luck!!!

The top of the tryptic is by far my favorite part. Although doing a tryptic would be a cool idea, I think the image would feel a lot more epic on it's own.

Thumbs up

This is a Fantastic Idea/Concept! That sketch/painting alone gave me goosebumps!

I look forward to seeing how this plays out!

Thanks everyone.
If I do go with the tryptic, I will most likely re work all three images.
The original ones were just to get my idea out of my head.
I'll do some more research and drawing.
I would really like to have each of the panels to have its own color theme,
then they will work better together.
If I go with a single image I have a few pencil sketches of that too.
I just need to get them in the computer.
Still the real challenge will be the design of the ships. I want to retain much of the original design, but you know cooler and spacier. he he.
I would love to get that familiar but strange and fantastic feel.

wish me luck!

I did another sketch tody at lunch. I can't upload from work sooooo...
I'll do it when I get home, that is, if I don't for get.
I think this one would be the canidate for the single image.

Thanks for the support.

Oh man ... patiently waits for next sketch.

These are really nice Kory. I kind of like the bridge scene since it shows the captain and his ships as they journey across the galaxy. However, it is a bit "Star Wars" like, as already mentioned. I'm sure you'll have the details worked out better.

Always been a fan of your 2D paintings & I'm looking forward to seeing this one in the final judging.

Concept Sketch: Landing Party

Here is another concept pass.
I refined the final panel and I think I just may focus on this one.
I still want to push the foreground a bit and may fudge the composition some more.
But, basicly this is it.
I still need to do more research and design the ships.
