Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to this challenge, I had alot of fun doing the machineflesh challenge.

I have no idea where to start, I will have to do some serious brainstorming. I am very keen on technology within the Grand Space Opera....hhhhmmm will have to sleep on it see what pops up.

Hope to see many of my new CG friends here aswell

Mark

Hey, I've been following your concept work on Aegis. Great stuff! Looking forward to seeing you make this. I like the second concept better. Both are good though.

Zem´s right - the second one has defenetly more potential -

the scene looks maybe a bit too friendly.

second one with color, that works really well. What's wrong with peaceful theme, if it's iconic?

Concept Sketch: Momentum



Momentum: force of a moving body.

I have had this bouncing around in my head for a few days, More iconic than the others. I am thinking this maybe the one to go with.

Nice! I like your latest one. I think it's always important to have emotion in an image

Your ideas are beginning to coalesce there Mark. I too think the latest is the strongest - it has the very real potential, as you say, of being an iconic piece.

Think I'll pull up a comfy chair, crack open a beer, get comfortable and watch the progress of this one...

nice work mate!
