Here we go.... EON Challenge (3D Scene)

Hi everyone,

Well...this is it, my first ever post and my first ever attempt at anything like this!

I've been visiting this site for a while now and, when i saw the 'EON challenge', thought I'd bite the bullet and enter. I've no idea how I'm going to get along as this is going to be my first time at creating both a character and an environment (not to mention animating it) but if I don't give it a go I'll never know! Whatever happens its going to be experience!

I've just started to read the book, but from the 'inspiration pages' I like the sound of the third chamber so hopefully I'll upload some sketches soon (probably end up changing my mind, but I've got to start somewhere).

Anyway... Best of luck everyone, think we're going to see some amazing entries!!!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Sketch V2(02) - Thistledown City



Sketch V2(02) - Thistledown City
This is a reworked version of the 2nd sketch. The image is based on a small section of the book when Patricia is free to roam around the 'stone'on her own. I liked the idea of her being all alone in this vast and amazing city, contemplating the fate of the earth.
I not sure at the moment if I'm going to stick with the design of the building shown, might try make them look a bit cleaner, but overall I think the image conveys the 'meloncholy' and 'still' feeling I'd like to have in my final piece.
Please let me know what you think...

I agree. You should really flesh this new concept out. I would really like to see how it turns out.

One crit. Perhaps you should have the plasma tube higher. Having it as low as you have it gives the impression that the chamber is not so large...if you know what I mean.

I wondered if anyone would think that! The main reason I kept the plasma tube so low in the image is that i wanted the character (Patricia) to be on one of the bridges spanning across Thisledown. I figured these must be enormous and very tall to cover such a vast distances, so consequentially she would be a lot closer to the plasma tube and tops of buildings. Hopefully I'll convey this over a bit better when modeling!

Thanks for the comments though... its always good to find out how other people percieve you work! Keep them coming!!!
