Thanks guys. I took too long to read the book and get to this point, but now that I'm over the hump and have a drawing, I expect the rest to come relatively fast and easy.

Rawwad: Yeah, you ca.org guys... you, hideyoshi, beelow... This is the first work I've posted here. I miss c.o.w. and c.h.o.w.

Personally i enjoy any kind of tech design so i love your technically detailed style but maybe you could push it a little bit more so it looks more futuristic; so advanced that, even being human seems alinigenous to ours (just suggesting)
good luck!! my friend

Line Art / Model: Line Drawing update

I usually try not to go too far in grayscale because it muddies things when I introduce color. In this case there are so many details I wanted to keep tweaking that I stayed in b&w a little longer. I'll start some color washes tomorrow.

Very nice sketch... can't wait for the colored version... The frant looks unique...
If you fail the first time... So much for skydiving...

everything works well with this one! There is a good amount of 'story-telling layers' in your piece with lots to explore. Can't wait to see a stronger value break-up separating the different depth areas Me, I would punch up the atmospheric perspective quite a lot here -think it would look good...

Nice line work! The character designs look pretty cool too. As far as composition goes, your earlier sketches are stronger. It maybe the values you used or the dynamic poses you chose but overall your use of spaced is better utilized in youre earlier sketches. Try placing one of your characters farther into the background a little and another closer to the viewer just to see how that might look.

Also the female character has a wary expression on her face and doesn't seem to go well with her pose i think. Looking foreward to see where you take this piece.

Initial color pass or textured and lit model: 1st color pass

Here's my first color pass. Things'll continue to get a lot tighter and the linework will integrate and dissapear into the painting over the next few updates. I'm also eventually going to add some FX of picted graphics. Thanks for comments.

Nice work so far, and nice colors. i like that you're illustrating a scene that few others (if anyone) are doing. One thing I really liked in some of your earlier posts was the way the maintenance ship behind the VSTOL was dark and creepy looking and really stuck out by having a different value than the rest of the scene. That aspect of the piece is getting a bit lost in the more recent colorized versions.

Good luck with it!

Final composite and colour timing: half way there

This is maybe half way through the painting. I've been mostly working on the foreground but there's a lot more to go.
