It is the first time that I participate in this competition and when I look at what is post office, I tell myself that the bulk is to participate. Then here is the first stage of my plan, sketches it, I wanted to imager a scene of attack of a futuristic city, with what it entraine, spaceships and all the rest of it, but I wanted to insert into it personage on the first plan to humanize the whole, especially the woman who protect her child

Coloring WIP: etape 2



Here a beginning of colour application of the sky. That gives an idea of the tone and selected luminosity. I worked the sky in several layer of the watercolour type to end up reaching a rather realistic result

Finally I chose an entirely graphic work, and I worked the mountain with texture create by my care all in shade, it east can be less realistic but I find that that sticks better with my sky

Thanks Tranchefeu, no, for the sky with photoshop, but with many layers

Si tu préfères me parler en français n'hésite pas, cela m'éviitera des explosion de crâne en tentant de traduire mon anglais qui est trés trés trés mauvais

bon courage à toi et à ton super design

This is really nice, and you can very render well, although I think you should get the whole thing roughly blocked in to see if every piece of the picture works together or not. The sky is great, and the mountains look good, but the mountains don't look as though they belong in the scene at the moment. Mainly what isn't working in my opinion is that there is a lot of atmospheric haze on the mountains, but the sky doesn't appear very atmospheric. It's very saturated, and those mountains, which appear to be reflective rock, would pick up some of those intense yellows and oranges. Also, the shadows would probably be much darker, as there is only the one light source.

You've done an amazing job, and the textures on the mountains have a realistic quality. There's just some minor adjustments that would make it much stronger, although it is very strong already. I think you've done a good job so far, and I really want to see this taken all the way. Great work!!

Happy to see that I'm not the only one to fight when we have to speak english.

However, nice colors and details, looks like good oldschool airbrush style.
good luck vieux.
