Concept Sketch: probably the final sketch



Here it is, probably the final sketch, which might become even a line art.
I was very busy in the past 3 days, so I didnt updating my thread. But I still havent forgot about the challenge so I was working on the composition and perspective of the camera view. Im finally quite satisfied with the result Im showing it right here.
The frozen city starts melting (as u already know), bridges and pillars r crushing and the first island collapsed. People (many tiny dots in groups) r falling as well, others panic. Flying ships (jelly-fish like :) for now) r taking off... In the back, the sun is coming up.

Finally something drawn with a pencil.. I missed that :D

hmm this is an interesting one....

I like the final composition, but I get a 'cluttered' feeling (I think it could be because there are only lines at the moment, and so threre's no fill/colour, which means things are harder to pick out).

It is obvious that a lot of time, effort and care has gone into this image, it is very detailed, and very precise, I'm v.impressed.

A very nice idea Squibbit... Im just wondering if that will be possible to see (or even to draw ) coz the people r so tiny. hmm...
Im thinking of resizing the pic and give it a first plan as well. There is something missing that would make a pic more dramatic. Maybe I'll really add a first plan, where nations from the woods (bad guys) r watching that chaos from a higher places.. infront of a camera. Than I could use my giant termite-giraffe-like animals as well I'll draw that idea and show it here coz Im not sure that anyone understood what i've just said .. soon.

Nice sketch,

Do you want to integrate something in the background? Somehow I think there is a bit less information at the top of your page.

I´m looking forward to watch growing your cityscape under the domes.

Greetings
Fahrija

That final sketch is really nice, it's got a tangible, believable feeling to it and the organic shapes are so pleasing to the eye. The little bit of movement pulls the whole thing together and it's great! My only suggestion would be to add some more variety to the textures you're using, but that's not very useful, is it... ^^

Hi NinjASSN,

Excuse my unreadable english > the question was not that important. I just thougt your foreground has a lot of information and the background is a bit empty. Especially around the horizontline and above.
If you place some topography like rocks in the background, the horizonline gets some breaks. In addition you underline the impression of depth.
