Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: power now

I am entering this challenge a bit late I did not here about it until mid december 06. but hopefully better late than never.

here is the concept sketch for the 3D scene I am working on. I was motivated mainly by the description of the maltese cross that is the power source for the city. I was not at first sure what a maltese cross looked like but a little search on the internet and found that it is basically a cross with widened ends but it seems like it can take on many shapes. so I tried to come up with something that had those qualities. also like most matte and concept artists I inspired by the hudson river school painters such as bierstadt and church( fredrick) and wanted to experiment with a scene that had that type of lighting and feel but as a city scene. I am trying to model and light and get all the elements together but it will be tight since I had such a late start.

Post Effects and Compositing: COMPOSITE TEST EON

This is the progress of my scene up to date. It is a quick composite test. I still have A little more to add and some more tweaking of the lighting to do. Hopefully I will have time to add a bit of a camera move or some ships flying to the air. I am putting all my energy towards trying to pull this together in time but I will submit some progress renders and making of for the other milestones shortly.

This image is mainly inspired by the description of the maltese cross of axis city that is the power source for the city.

Final Render: FINAL Image-Maltese cross power grid

FINAL IMAGE BARELY MADE IT BUT HERE IT IS. It is the maltese power grid mentioned in the book. The maltese cross shaped power structure powers the city. The corridor is also visible in the background and the singularity flaw is traveling throuth it.
