Concept Art: Scale again



Im stopping at chapter six to reflect on what ive read so far, so much can be told on a composition. :)

Trail of dust left by the truck with Lanier and Patricia on it...moving passing control towers and fencing towards the twenty meter wide arch tunnel opening to chamber two, alexandria.

Each chamber has been blasted out, leaving many iron, nickle exposed, with widmanstatten pattern showing.

The floor of chamber one is sandy and dusty with patches of green, as they climd up from the valley to reach the tunnel.

The glow from the plasma tube is ever presence.

The dust takes time to settle as there is little wind in chamber one.

As you've used color to describe distance, I would like to see some glow from the plasma tube to give a 'destination' for the truck.

I think many of us are struggling with the scale of the chambers, whether as entrants or just readers. Your posts with the GoogleEarth images to get the sense of scale is a stroke of genius. Thanks for that!

Concept Art: Journey to Alexanderia



“Humans built the Stone, Patricia. People from Earth.”
She stared at him, then tried to grin.
“Built it twelve hundred years ago. At least, it’s about twelve hundred years old.”
“Oh,” she said. ”Pull the other one.”
“No, I’m serious.”

This is the moment Lanier break the news to Patricia. The beginning of a mind-boggling puzzle for her...

How about rotating the tube right, to about 1 o'clock, or 2 o'clock? The whole picture has a right lean to it, quite nice, like a clockwise spiral. Except the light tube violates that. Otherwise, really great sketch!

I think cloud is my friend....i think its a useful tool to depict height. Im struggling to depict it without the help of clouds.

We automatically get the idea of height when cloud is inserted so im using it.

It can give a great and nice glow effects to the cloud by the plasma tube....like a linear, constructed lightning across the sky.

Thanks for the advice! Definitely doable....i'll try that. But im currently crunching ideas and brainstorming to get myself used to the world of Eon. My priority is to get the scale right.

Great clouds! It reminds me of te storm scene in the first chamber after the Death and the Russians are beginning to revolt. By the way... the "Lanier giving Patricia the tour" scene? It isn't copyrighted... hehe... you can go for it man.

Nazirull - I can't believe I haven't posted in your thread yet. It's not that I haven't been watching it: I'm finding the work that your doing, the scale studies and the use of real photos to try to accurately portray the real dimensions in the Stone incredibly fascinating and inspiring. It's all been great work, and this latest cloud study is no exception.

to echoe what nwiz posted, I don't think the plasma tube should be that intense and hard-edged. Or more to the point, I don't think Greg Bear thinks so. In adib's thread he made one of his rare posts and commented "Tubelight might also be larger and more diffuse." I don't know about the larger in your case - adib's had been tighter, like a laser - but you may want to consider the more diffuse. After all, we know it's diffuse enough that you can fly a VTOL right upthrough and into it and not get blinded!

Anyhow, still looking forward to more of yuor posts. Keep exploring!

-mike

Conkrys - Dont be too mesmerised by the clouds...nice cloud indeed but i didnt paint those. . Point taken! I know its not copyrighted but having the similar theme feels strange to me, especially when i say 'This is what ive found' while other had found it first.

Walrus
- Thanks for dropping by! I havent been reading the book so im abit weak on descriptions of the plasma but thanks to you! Im halfway through the book. But Im yet to chose which scene im doing.

DaveClarke, elnady
- Thanks guys! I'll post soon i hope!

Concept Art: Random sketches...



Just a random sketch...im a bit inspired by MarkyG's piece...thats what i had in mind all along (rrrrriiiiiiteee......).

Im trying to take the Stone as a character instead of a dead abandoned thing...and i want to dwell more into the political side of stuff.

Since i think the core (rite...ure talking with having finished only half of the book) of the story is the Death and how the nations are eager to get hold of the secrets....
