Concept Sketch: The road to the white city.



Let`s start on some simple idea, a group of heroes are starting they journey to the white city.

My scene will be in a fantasy world where physics and nature laws are different than on our earth. Stones without gravity, crystals growing from ground are common on this world.

Let`s see where this will guide us.

Concept Sketch: A better sketch



Just a refined sketch, I made the city closer and added more rocks. The path will go from island to island. Each bigger island should be a little different from another (made of crystal, lava, etc) to show that the heroes have to pass many dangers before arriving to the city.

The concept looks interesting. Floating rocks as a platform leading to the white city. Has a fun game look and feel to me.

Hey Nomad,

Really nice idea here. Maybe you could 'link' some of the islands in some way -Maybe have a waterfall running off one into a lake on another island below it, or maybe a distant rainbow can be seen crossing two islands.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Pete.

atra - thank you, I think I will have alot of fun to design this fantasy world

Ludal - thx, glad to read that

authentic - yes? I will check your thread and sue you if you do the same concept
The color scheme will be different depending to the location on the road. But the start and end areas should stay like this ones, in green and warm tones.

Pete2003 - thats great ideas you wrote here, thank you. I`m thinking to link all the islands small and big with bridges... some small and rustic and some big in stone and decorated.
All the idea is to show unusual things like crystal plants, elements upside down etc. Difficult to explain... I will make some sketches of some of the areas and post them soon.

ecura - yes I`m refering to platform games and old illustrations from the `70s for the design. Especially from artists like Roger Dean or Rodney Matthews which I like alot.

Poonks - thank you
