Thanks! Yup... I'm averaging 4 - 6 hours a night. I don't think the temple city will take as much time as the Mother ship... organic imagery is always quicker to knock-out. My concern is the time to balance and tweak the image. That polish phase is critical.

Thanks for the support!

It'll be done...

"almost" is a relative term...

Man this is looking great. It's getting down to the wire, but you seem to be on track. Can't wait to see it finished.

Final Coloring: Colour Update - 6 (Mother ship / Volcano modify)



A chunk more that's off my plate...

- Modified the Volcano mountain. I'm happier with it now.
- Added some chunks o' molten rock flyin' through the air.
- About 65% of the detail work on the Mother ship is done.

I should have the Mother ship done early tommorow and have a good start on the temple city. Sweet...

2 days, 12 hours, 1 minute and 5 seconds to go!!!

Thank God I have alcohol to see me through this, and an understanding wife.

Do you ever sleep?



Thanks... I hope so, again, it's the final tweaks to the overall image that will make or break it. Will I have time... we'll see. Deadline is 9:00pm Monday, Pacific time here on the west coast.

I think I will.

Thanks for your continued enthusiasm!!

Hi Ken,

Your render/painting skills on the surface of the ship are marevellous. Much more accurate than I could ever do it. I would love to know how you did the beautiful light pattern on the right handside. I very much struggling with those kind of things.

Maybe it could be an idea to give the laser some sort of characteristic attribute/structure. Like some straight veins or maybe some sort of impulse points or an additional transparent tube around it. That would underline the immense power of the laser.

Great work.

Fahrija:

Thanks! I beg to differ with you about your ability to hit that detail level. I've seen your entry... the detail at the bottom of the FG ship is wonderful and the hull texture is gorgeous (post a tut on it!).

I'm not sure what you're asking about in regards to the light pattern? Where specifically? I'd be happy to give you a breakdown... but maybe not until the competition is over... we'll see how I'm doing on time.



Yah, I like the pulse idea for the laser beam. That being said I do think it looks powerful right now. But you're right, it needs something. I think I'll do a similar effect to what I did for the fighter engine thrusters. A little metal texture in Photoshop on "linear light" mode to get a crackling energy feel. That should do it! Good idea... thanks!

MDN67:

Critique is done. Happy to do it for such a talented fellow illustrator! Sorry I haven't replied more to your thread.
