I like the new concept Nazirull, good atmosphere of Alexandria. the one before that (the MarkyG inspired) is cool too, this one just seems more epic, great potential! keep it up

Concept Art: Thistledown



This is inspired again by MarkyG's sketch. Curves dominated the place...I played around with the perpsective...u can see two horizons and a curve spanning above the viewer....and the plasma tube running across the vista...at the far back, the opposite side of the chamber...revealing the scale of the land...

Im stuck halfway thru the book..i might stop hereand develop wuteva i know about the story.

Or just go with anything coz its 'Eon inspired', doesnt necesarilly, faithfully have to be Eon.....rite guys?? *excuses* *excuses*

Concept Art: Thistledown.....again



Tadaaa! No prize for guessing correctly which chamber is this!

With some help using MAX, i get the 25km radius and 30km length of thistledown chamber....the curves are of course from the book... overlayed some google aerials on the mesh to show scale...and overlayed zdepth too...

This one is pretty much faithful to Greg Bear's vision i think....need to have something in the foreground....hmmm...

Definitely some emotional conflict of interest between the expedition party.....Lanier, Takahashi, Patricia, Kimskaya....things like that...

Dunno yet how to do that....will see!

Well, it certainly makes a striking composition. 'Though to look across he chamber, given the gravity pull towards the sides, any people you put in there will have to be looking straight up: I fear that if you put Patricia there, we'll be looking right up her nostrils! But it may not need the people - it is a pretty impressive view on its own!

Great Stuff

I have just posted my first previs for Thistledown (has not made it on the post yet) and without taking a look at what you have done already. This is great stuff. Many of the ideas you had struck me the same way! I even used some google maps to look for a good texture to rouph out the feel I was looking for! I guess great minds think alike

I'm very impressed by you ideas so far. I agree with the feeling you get with the Caps being placed in the chamber making the place chamber feel small. I've been struggling with that myself. I'm hoping to find an angle that works well to give an idea of how large the chambers are compaired to human scale.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing what how this progresses

Maybe not....i try to capture the first descriptions of Thistledown in the book...can also be found in the Inspirations section, under Chamber Three.

Thanks

Thanks mate! I think the book itself brings us all to one idea about a subject already. But then it still allows some unknown elements which means space for the imagination.

In this case, e.g. the curve of how the buildings are being hung on the cables....can be parallel or perpendicular to the caps....and of course the form of the buildings, architecture and stuff.
