Concept Art: Axis City appraoch - thumbnails



Hi, all. After much delibiration, looks like I'm in.I'm thinking about illustrating the scene where Patricia, Olmy, and the Frant are fist approaching Axis City. I want a scene that shows the Way beyond the first 6 chambers, and especially Axis City, which I think would be really impressive. But I don't just want a landscape shot, I want to have people in tehre too.

Of these, 1, 2 and 9 are my favorites so far. The big cylinder is Axis City, and the 3 shapes at the bottom are the characters. What do you think?

-mike

Hi Mike, I'm keeping my eyes nailed to your thread now I see You have entered the challenge. I consider it is a fairly good starting point, I myself am considering to portray the same characters but leaving from the third chamber. Good luck

Mike...

I'll be joining you shortly, it'll be fun to "work" together again. I'm sure you'e going to come up with another beautifully executed piece. Here's hoping your level of polish and vision shine through again...

As far as your initial compositions, #1 seems to be the most dynamic of the bunch...

Looking forward to the struggle...

ciao

Concept Art: Axis city sketches



Thanks, folks... Gonzalo, Ramixton, Ken, and everyone else, good to see you all here too!

Not much time to chat this morning, here's a quick few sketches showing some slternate chapes for the Vanes of Axis City (anyone recall whether they're part of Nader City or another part of Axis city?)

Cheers...!

-mike
