Wow, I didn't realize that was the case! Given that, I am going to respectfully disagree with the NextOne: I still think the symmetrical one works really well. If you still had the 3D files, you could work with this new layout. But as all of your renders of the 3D models were done with the symmetrical layout, then that's what you've got: I think you should just go back to post 36 and work from there.

I think perhaps the biggest lesson here is next time around to figure out what your layout and composition is before you render your models out, and definitely before you throw away all the files. Forget about using a computer, you could work out your whole composition on paper before you ever get to a computer and have people give you valuable feedback about what works before you spend too much time rendering out a layout that doesn't work for you. But that's just my opinion, good luck to you no matter what.

Thanks for sharing that Mike.I really appreciate your understanding.However I think I should stick to the current composition & try to work the perspective from there,because once I changed it I had kept too faithfully to the symmetrical architecture.This one feels more random & less deliberate.Perhaps I`ll post you what I will get once I`m done with the perspective & you can help me check if it works.

Thanks!

Marvellous

You use of architecture and atmospherics have captured perfectly the spirit of one of the
chapters in gregs novel.Well done.Even more so I admire your perseverance in working from
the cybercafe!The hourly charges must be enourmous.Can't you use the school computers?

Final Image: Eon(illustration)The Death



The story behind Eon touches the theme of man`s inhumanity to man in many levels.Perhaps the epitome of the resulting destruction is the Death as portrayed in the storyline.As the subject matter presented many creative opportunities to present a rendition of the world created by Greg`s imagination I personally opted to work on this theme of destruction & catastrophe.So the Death was an easy subject choice.My initial approach was to present the destruction of a futuristic cityscape through cataclismic bombardment.

The story describes the Death as a "crown-fire".This required for a panoramic shot.I wanted the piece to look like a scene from a science fiction movie.I did some reference work to come up with a unique architecture fo my city.The inspiration for this element came from the cubic architecture of coruscant from Star Wars.
Then I moved on to the explosion.I did a lot of references to get the exact look I needed.It had to be convincing & epic at the same time.It initially took a long time to get this right.In the end all the trial & error payed off & one can see the result of that in this final image.

Only thing I would say is that there is no real depth in this image. A ship in the forground should help make this one that much more successful. Good luck with the final image though!
