i dont think Genesisa is implying that you will copy, but inspiration is invaluable - not entirely necessary, but if anything gets creative juices flowing, bring it on!

Hey NinjaASSN... thanx for the visit!

I like your first concept, but i also like that jelly because i get the feeling of space in it.

How bout showing the view from top of the about to be collapsed crystal building? That way you could play with massive GRAND horizon Also the view might induce some vertigo in people, but that is just my idea. You could also depict one building in the horizon being at even higher! Anyway dont mind me.. This is your work do as you want

In the machine flesh you got such wild pencilartwork seems like this time youre going with regular computer graphics style?

Good luck!

Peddy: i know i know maybe i didnt express myself in a right way. I know that Genesisa didnt mean that I copy ideas from Robota... I just meant that I'll try to bring even something completely different from i've seen so far. I' sure have to study a bit more about Space Operas, coz I dont have a clue whats that all about. The only thing that I noticed familliar is Star Wars so far. Im more into horror

Falcor_: I appreciate ur suggestion and I'll most probably use it. The idea of a high camera view could bring more dramatic effect to the picture, and more dynamical as well.
I didnt choose yet, what technique will I use in this challenge. For quick sketches, computer was the best... it has larger undo history than my sheets and rubber
I'll sure submit some of my pencil and ink sketches, than i'll choose how to continue.. soon!

Tommy Lee: Hey Dude to u back! I almost didnt recognise u, coz of ur "new" avatar. Than I saw that "I told u to noooooo" and it hits me Thnx for ur comment and hoping that u r in this challenge as well..

screamingwing: thnx! I'll do the first one... actually I'm already working on it

Reallly love the Second Sketch, great idea, reminds me Great A´Tuin but is an innovative concept, maybe u need do a sketch more detailed, Sure it´s one of the best ideas looked so far here...

While I also prefer the first concept to all the other 2 you've made so far - I don't think you should just go dead on and stick with that concept; think it would be better to introduce more concepts, and explore some more, before finally settling down upon one. Just because the last two weren't as attractive as the first one doesn't mean any new ideas you might introduce will be bad.

I agree with Nemein, that's a very good point. I think that if you have any other ideas rattling arround, get them on paper, and then see which you prefer. It may be that idea 1 is still the most appealing, in which case you would probably feel more confident knowing that it stood out over all your other ideas, than if a concept you didn't show could have been better.

Good luck, I know that chosing a concept can be a hard task.

I agree with the majority about the first concept. It just has a much grander sense of scale and depth compared to the other two.

Having said that, i also agree that any other ideas you have should also be developed - you never know, one of them might come out even better than this, and futhermore, there could be some neat little ideas you come up with that can be included in your primary idea. Never hurts to experiment, after all

U have a point. Sometimes Im just a bit overamused with something, and than I blindly gp with the flow... And than I also have so many other things to do that I was really happy with the feedback and thought I can finish my piece. Today I'll submit a first idea quick painting, from a whole another view, not from the top side, but from the bottom floor. But I'll also have in mind searching for new ideas, putting them down and post them here for possible replies. Honoustly, Im still looking for something more shocking its just that i didnt (have time to) find it yet.

Thnx for the feedback! It pushed me out when I was stuck

And What about merging the two first concepts in one piece? Can be really astonishing.

Here is another update. A view from the underworld, where icebergs r falling from the sky (from melting frozen islands upthere), people and animals running away, saving thier lives. Arrows r showing the way of moving objects.
