Concept Sketch: sketch1_31_10_04



My idea is:
to put in a landscape and in the foreground 1-2 humans in space suite watching scared and/or fascinated and/or curious to a spectacular mix of construction of futuristic structures and maybe (but I don' think I will include this) a near battle, like something trying to destroy some of the structures...

Concept Sketch: sketch3_31_10_04



third sketch. I think I will start with this. an alien planet landscape (or maybe earth years after a cataclysm?), a father and a son/daughter in space suite over a rock, looking fascinated at the valley below, where a spaceship is under construction. Far you can see mountains and a futuristic city and/or industrial facilities. In the valley there is also a river, in the proximity of which the spaceship is being built.

I like the concept of the third one, but the composition seems a little bit boring. I'd suggest playing around with the perspective and dimentions. Maybe a more upright piece, like a movie poster, with the viewer looking over the shoulder of the two space men, down into the valley.

Thumbs up

Hello ChrisThatGuy,

I'm looking at "all" the other people's works (hundreds)...so I'm little busy....I think there are a lot of people with really smart, evocative, nice ideas... a lot to see, to learn, to discuss, to find...this Forum is like a drug for me...I'm getting addicted to it.....

anyway, I'm on my way...in 2-3 days I'll develope that idea with some other sketches, and then I will start to work more deeper inside...

thank you. Have a nice work. I like that. I'll put your thread on my favourites. Bye.

Explanation

Here a few lines to clear down my ideas:

A father and a child. In space suite. Both are above a rock which dominates the valley where a big spaceship is under construction. The ship is still in pieces. There are components scattered all around. Some of them are almost completed, some other are still at the beginning...just started. There are tools, machineries, structures, people working, tensostructures...it's a big site. It's impressive. At the horizon, there a few low mountains and aside a big futuristic city, that's quite far from here, almost hidden by gray and dirty mist.

The father is fascinated, and point somewhere into the site...telling something to his child trying to get him excited as much as he is....but.....the little chilld is attracted by somthing else....

I see an allegory here, but I'll explain that at the end, if some else has not noted that yet.

Anyway, the planet could be Earth, polluted as much as people have to put on special equipment to breath a protect their bodies on open spaces....and their trying to go away, and find a new world...

If a more deep wirtten story is needed to accompany the final image....if the image will not explain itself without help...well I will think about that when It's time.

Concept Sketch: studies_reference_images



To start designing and put down sketches of the spacesuites, I needed to seek some information on the current technology adopted by Nasa. I found pictures and documents on past and present spacesuites used by astronauts. Here some pictures.
On Nasa's website I found also a PDF document explaining deeply components, materials and structure.
These pictures and documents will help me in understand limits of current technology and try to imagine how the design could evolve in the future.
It's a place where to start.

I really like the idea and the composition is very balanced. It will be great if you put as much detail as you can on the spaceship.. I think that it will keep almost all the attention of the viewer.. so you should try to put as many different parts of the spaceship as you can, but trying to make something understandable.

Nice work!

Modeling: land_study1



I put down in Zbrush a rectalungar shape. Then I painted up the collinar landscape at the horizon (that I imagined in my previous sketches), and the rock platform from where dad and child are looking to the spaceship in construction.
Then I imported it in 3Dmax as an OBJ, and scaled it to fit a distance from the rock platform to mountains of about 2 kilometers. Highest mountain is 600 meters high, while rock platform is about 60 m.

This is a side view. i put a 50 mm camera at about 1.80 meter from the top of the platform, just to start thinking at what the two characters are going to see. Actually, when I painted the mountains and the platf., I tried to remember to fix the angle of the view.
