Concept Art: Alexandria



UGH! finaly finished the book. With a full time job, freelance, and life getting in the way i am getting a very late start on this. But im excited!

I did a series of black and white roughs. Just playing with shots from the street, or from outside the city. I used the plasma tube as i imagined it to be through the center of the chamber, being the only light source.

I ended up not going with the street level view because i thought a grand panoramic of the skyline would be a lot more impressive. I wanted to also get some good 'industrial' grunge up front. I played with the idea of a train yard, but ended up going with the run off river instead. I stitched together several Images of LA for the forground. Had to paint out all the graffiti and cars. I also got rid of some trains that were in the shot. Although i know Alexandria had trains, they just didnt seem to fit.

Ill probably do more to the forground later, but its not high priority. I also want to re-enter the plasma tube in the small color comp. I think the warmer sky is too earthlike.

Line Art / Model: Alexandria



so i am using the original forground of my rough. Im going to have to deal with the edge of the trees later. I,ll be looking at my previous roughs for building compositions.

Threw the plasma tube in there as well. Hope to get some interesting clouds around it eventualy.

Initial color pass or textured and lit model: Alexandria



I kinda like this composition of buildings. I did some quick perspective reference. Though a lot of the shapes will be angled and ambiguous anyway i think.

Eeek! Perspective grids give me a headache. I know they're a necessary evil but I guess I've just gotten used to modeling stuff in 3d and painting it over that I haven't brought them out in a while

TRUE! I generaly model things in 3D as well first, but i decided to go with the grids for a few reasons. One, Im short on time. So everything may not end up perfect, but i just dont have time to model out even a rough city. Two, Alexandria is often described as looking like LA but 10X bigger, so I'm just using a ton of reference shots i took of LA for the buildings anyway. All i realy need to do is fix the perspective and fix the lighting. Also kind of copy paste some frankenstein buildings so they dont look so familiar.


But, in all honesty i do have a secret passion for perspective drawing. I just dont get much oportunity to do it traditionaly anymore due to deadlines.
