Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization



Working now in the posibles characters for the illustration. I'm thinking in a queen ant looking at her loyal soldiers flying lizards :) )

I don't know what other people's preferences are, but to me, "Nocturnal Flight" is what I like the most. It is very surreal and has a great moody feeling.

Thanks Dream !. Yep I like a lot the surrealist approach. Maybe more magic than strange, perhaps for that reason I have looked for other variations

Yes, I completely understand you. I'm into surreal/fantasy style so I have a difficult time doing concepts without falling into surreal/fantasy catorgery too much and stray too far away from strange behaviour theme.

Nevertheless, it is still very awesome. Perhaps you can find a way to make it more "strange" while rendering the surreal feeling of it?

Gord - Thanks . Yea, you are right, dragonflys are one of the more interesting and beautiful insects. I think that they have many possibilities for a gorgeous illustration

Gabriel/SteevieWoo - I have been giving many turns to the idea of the skaters or surfers (that is nice ) I'm thinking in a "chavos banda" (underground) style for this skater ants, adorned with graffitis style decals -sounds good- in a nocturnal race.

Neville - Thanks man! I really appreciate your words. I already decided I go by the idea of the surfers ants (thx Gabriel !) on dragonflys!!, as it explains to SteevieWoo

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Surfers



This is the first previsuaization of the final idea, a radical surfers ants in a nocturnal race. I´m trying a underground atmosphere for this race :)
I´m thinking in a river near a industrial zone, with pipes over and in the river...
