Concept Sketch: Rough idea

Done very quickly by mouse.. just to get it down on 'paper'.

It's based on a dream.

Concept Sketch: The Colonists

The image represents the collective dream of the passengers in hybernation on this ship travelling to some distant planet.. whilst they sleep they imagine themselves on this grassy planet looking back at their ship..

Concept Sketch: little change

changed the framing, colour balance and visibility..

it's very basic.. i don't plan to do much for the concept level

just fiddling with it...

It is a shame most of the users on this forum will not recognize the sublte bueaty of the image you have created. I really like the soft quite colors. The dark human figures seem so tragic, and this contrast well with what otherwise would seem like a pretty green day at the park. There is a great sense of impending doom.

Keep up the good work. I think you have something intersting....
We are all immortal, it is just that some of us choose to lead shorter lives.

thankyou for your comments.. it's interesting what you say about the 'impending doom', i guess that there is a certain element of fear for those people.. they are dislocated souls in transit and all they can do is watch, they have no recourse for action ..just sleeping passengers heading for some unknown destination..

I find your scetch lightning really fascinating. It seems to be a warm day just before rain.
This is my prefered state of nature. It's just when it feels so quiet, so calm. And therefore I believe that it contains a real mystery. All those people know thomething (aren't they and spectator can only suppose what secret they hide, what all this means...
Such a concept I'd place on my desctop with pleasure.
Actually as for me I don't think that there are necessary planty of dertails. It' just great as it is (well, some 3d models are wellcome
I hope to see it's final state very close to your scetch.
Good working

First time I see this thread. I like your concept! And the image seems to raise more qestions than answers, so far, really good work and I'm looking forward to see the rest

WIP: Anatomy

Texturing: testing textures

took me a while to get a texture that i could continue with.. this one seems okay tonight, let's see in the morning :)

Lighting: testing compositional elements

testing the lighting with fog and some weird depth of field.. not quite right but it's starting to shape up.. characters need development and i could have spent more than 2 minutes on the grass texture... also no shadows.

thank you Deryk and Gunilla for your comments!

yes, the calm before the storm.. -maybe- but in any case it seems most of you are right, that something IS about to happen... but what?

..the mystery continues..
