Hello everybody and welcome to my "Grand Space Opera 3D Entry)!

This pictures show the creation of my sketch.


Here I began the sketch process in the basic form, once I got the inspiration.


Here I'm adding more detail to the clouds; like a stormy view.


Here I'm finishing setting up the " calmed / desolated " ambient.


Here I'm adding the shape of the " Destroyed City "

Lightbulb Sketch Improvements

This is not my final sketch is still missing some details, for example; I will add some sort of frog-like creature around the grass close to the tree, I will add ( to the tree ) some sort of seed/fruit that looks like stasis-pods, and also I will add a main character to the scene.

-= Title: Isolated Hope =-


- Detail -



Story behind the idea:
In order to have a great civilization and in order to expand your territory, you have to persecute and destroy your enemy until the day you annihilate them from existence.
(A thought by the enemy emperor)

There is always a thread among the weaker link in time of battle. And I have tried to describe that moment with this painting. Many years ago a dreadful battle caused this civilization to fell. Many years have past and enemy drones creep around the remains of once a great civilization. The enemy looks for any intelligent type of life form and destroys it; therefore no one can stop them or regain control of the land. Hope is always there standing alongside the path, telling you to never stop, telling you to fight with all you got.

To do list:

a) The first thing I will add to the painting is the essence of alien life form. By adding the frog-like creatures and the stasis-pod fruit to the tree.
b) Then after everything looks good (to me) I will add the sense of hope (the main character of the scene)
c) Retouch illumination details etc

Im still confused about the main character; Im not sure if I want a human-like creature or an alien-like creature as the main character. For now this is what I got:

a) A man-like silhouette, armed with a big weapon, staring at the drones.
b) A man-like silhouette, just standing there.


What do you think?
Cheers!
-----------------------------------------------------------

Here is an example of what I'm specting from the final sketch.

Very nice, mate! Reminds me of a Space Quest game. I think your concept would look great if you spend alot of time on the vegetation.

Thanks for your reply . Do you mean I have to fix the green areas in my sketch? or in the actual 3D render?

thanks!
cheers!

Samurai

I finished a sketch of a samurai. I will scan the picture later, once I'm home.



It is just me or this challenge is taking all my thoughts? I haven't done any of my work today...



Cheers!

Hey Hey!

Good to see another person focusing on a more micro iconic subject, now I know I'm not alone

The colours are going to be really nice, I've always been a fan of the golden sky. Ca't wait to see what the life forms look like.

What if, for your main character, you had atotally battle weary fighter. Maybe he could have a weapon, or some other form of obvious hero or warrior-like status. Then, maybe he could be bloody or be bandaged up. This could show that, although he's had the shit kicked out of him, he's still going on (alone, even).

Unhappy The samurai

I was reading a post about "samurais, warriors" something like that and I came across the word samurai. So I sketched a samurai holding a piece of soft-cloth like silk, in his left hand and welding a sword in his waist, and he seems like thinking...



I dont want the picture to look bloody, because I want to keep the scene of "calm / waiting for the right moment"



but my samurai doesnt look too much of futuristic or another world - like living form.
