The thinking process

Well this time I am going to try to do all with the proper system.

First of I brain stormed my mind after reading some parts of eon, and other books of Greg Bear!

The words which came to mind are the following:

alien, sun, moon, travel,
space, freedom, adventure,
projection, time, darkness,
fear, unknown, abstract,
colony, civilization, war,
laws, leaders, scientist,
heat, radiation, galaxy,
spaceship, invasion, hidden,
fade, transparent,

(30% of the actual words which where written down on paper during the brainstorm)

After the key words where figured out I started ordering them in categories of threes.

The Main three categories are “physical”, “mental” and “feeling”.

A simple resemblance of how I try to figure out the connection between the themes used in the upcoming illustration.

Concept Art: The Main three category compilation visualization

I try to figure out the connection between the themes used in the upcoming illustration.

So I left my imagination take a free ride and drew whatever came to my mind connected always to the three keywords.

Concept Art: industrial enviorment

This is a photo manipulation in Photoshop, took 2 photos of Athens last week, one of a industry chimney and one of Athens center and combined them in Photoshop 7. This is merely a test out to see and experiment what the look and feel of the theme will be.

Hey, that's and interesting way of approaching an assignment. I like the look of your test, now the trick is to alien-ize it all. Good luck.
  11 November 2006
Wow... it never occured to me to work like that.
Really interesting.
Keep it up and good luck!

Line Art / Model: The reflected city

This is a simple line art of the city i want to illustrate.
I managed to figure out Inkscape in order to trace a image of water.

The concept approach will be that a city will be reflected on the water.

The reflection will show a different reality .

Tell me what u think about it guys....

cheers your LostPen
