Concept Sketch: Initial Ideas

Hola, just upping my first pic, haven't had time to join the challange earlier, but I can see it's going to be tough, loads of amazing artists taking part. Good luck to all.

This is just an initial concept I've been playing with. Just to get a feel for the type of scenery i'm going to try create. something quite insect like but advanced. Not human, but could be close, I'll have to see where it brings me.

Concept Sketch: Compositional Sketch

Just working on some compositional sketching, I think I'm going to try a long panaramic, or something to that effect, not to sure yet, just trying to get initial ideas onto paper.

Concept Sketch: Compositional Sketch 02

Just playing with more compositions, and ideas, this one my thinking is similar to the last, but a different kind of scenerio. A mining city, one is left behind. There will be alot more technology in the right hand side if I would take this, but just thinking of ideas at the moment.

Concept Sketch: Comp sketch

Ok, I think it's between this one and the other. On the right hand side would be ships leaving, while one lone figure watches them abandon the planet. Reasons unknown yet, as I must think of them. Not to sure which to choose yet, what do you think?

Like your sketches, the tones has a very hands on feel. There is something I like about that long panoramic concept. Maybe put if the perspective is on a steeper angle could make it a little bit more dramatic.

i like your new concept i think youshould run with it and keep the colors gives the scene a look as if there is a sand storm or something and would make the lone figure watching more dramatic keep it up man

The desolate montainside is looking really interesting! Seeing as you asked, I like that concept much more than the other one. The scale is a lot more epic, and a craggy background holds more interest for me than a long, flat one. I also really like your spaceship concept, too. How will it look at the angle you need it to be for fleeing the mountainside? Good luck with it!

Concept Sketch: More concept

Just was just working on an idea for the stone towers, and it turned into this. I'm still working on the concept, I'm thinking at the moment, The past meeting the future, (this is only an idea of a larger panaramic) At the moment it's got a quite an old-style in it. But still working on the concept. Any thoughts?

I really think you should go with the three mountains, stacked up next to eachother. It shows more enviroment and structure, than just single one, no offence to your design AT ALL! =) but its clitche sometimes when its just one single thing..I really like the 3 of them together =) and the man standing next to them!

Hi Alex,

your last concept looks interesting. Especially the thumbnail version is very eye-catching.
Somehow it reminds me a bit of "the cathedral" - perhaps because of the arrangement.

I also agree to adonhis - to place another building in the distance (less saturated) to increase the depth of your image.

Concept Sketch: Cloud practice

Just getting a feel for the image, this is a practice image of the element I'm going to be using in the final one, so the final will be completely re-drawn, just trying to get the hang of rock an clouds, and atmosphere.
