I took a break from challenges since I was so busy but in a couple of weeks I'll have some time, so why not participate?

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Thistledown concept



When reading the inspiration page Thistledown just clicked for me... this is the first thing that came to mind. The arrows show the possible animation path I might take with this; will see, might be too much.

maybe considder to make more of the hanging buildings isible. Meaning, place the camera so, that you have more a sence of the enormous depth and size.

And i guess the animation path is too much. You have to considder that you need to model and make much more that will be visible with the othere camera angles.

cheers

I agree Thistledown is the one that got me excited, It's nice to see someone else using the hanging buildings concept like myself. I like the sketch though I agree with Nothingness in that the animation maybe too much, perhaps something more subtle?

Yeah I agree... would be nice but too ambitious I think. I'll concentrate on the 3d illustration and then will come up with a plan for the animation. Thanks for the feedback guys

Post Effects and Compositing: Matte Painting



I have to tell you, I wasn't feeling too inspired with the challenge lately. So I surfed through the Digital Matte Painting forum, got inspired and made the matte background... it's not finished yet but I have a clear direction on where to place the elements now and I have a color palette to work from as well. This is made with 3 different photos and then I retouched them and painted some more details.

sorry but the ground plate is way too bright for this sky, not matching at all. Neither are there any shadows cast from that setting sun. Keep it up.
