Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: One last one, probably



Some might say graffiti art is strange behavior. I'd argue it's even stranger at 30,000 feet.

I could keep churning these things out forever I suppose but I still like the idea of modeling one almighty weird space ship - my first idea. Maybe the other concepts would work as simple jokes but I love these challenges for the chance to spend months on a single image and a gutsy piece of modeling/illustration is something I'm keen to get into.

But it was nice to get those other ideas out of my brain and onto paper - it sort of clears my head and lets me move on

Exactly my thoughts when looking through your sketches, they are all adorable but you need something you can fill with details to not get bored with it. And a crazy vehicle is so...so you

Let's have fun now!

I love the fishing in the restaurant one... The other are very nice but that one looked like the best choice in my opinion..

good luck mate

Hallo, Mark!

I was sure you could NOT miss this one, and I can't wait to see how this thread develops. You've already given me some very good laughs.

Best of luck (as if you needed it ).

Thank you Michael

Gunilla
Cheers Gunilla. Yeah, I'm thinking more and more that the image must be eye-catching. I want it to be something you don't see every day. The other scenes might work as ideas but don't really grab me as a visual spectacle. So the space scene is the one I'll be doing.

daWinky
Hi Sabrina! Great to see you dropping by. I sure hope this means you might be thinking of starting your own thread

icedeyes
Thank you! I appreciate your kind words and your opinion very much. I was happy with that restaurant scene as a drawing but I think that as a humorous art piece it's peaked. What I mean is, I think it might be working as well as it can in its current quick-sketch form and might even be slightly less effective in 3D. That was why I was thinking of either the tree scene or the spaceship. I'm keen to go with the spaceship because I think it has the potential to go much further as a piece of eye-catching imagery than the others. I sure hope I'm right!

Hi Gonzalo! Thank you very much for dropping by mate! There's no EON army this time - just me and my Mac. But I can assure you, I have absolutely no faith at all in my ability to take my work seriously for 4 whole months.

flaeticia
Thank you Laeticia. I'm pleased to say that the plane is the one I'll be doing

Thaldir
Thanks mate! I appreciate your kindness and confidence in my stuff. But I can assure you, I'll happily grab every bit of luck I can find!

Hi Mona, great to see your bouncing GP avatar on this thread! It's excellent to see your own thread started too. Fire up the drawing tablets, it's time to party

varma
Hey thanks Mathias. Much appreciated buddy. By the way, I still think your escaped avatar is one of the cleverest here

Zapan
Cheers matey! Yeah, I'm pretty much settled on the idea of doing the spaceship one, and yeah I am enjoying this (again). I'm sure looking forward to watching your thread too - your stuff is amazing!

OKMER
Hi Remko! Thank you mate! I'm really glad you liked the bird's nest idea. I was tempted to go with that one but I was a bit too keen on making one almighty big (and crazy) spaceship so I'll be sticking with the first idea after all

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Basic spaceship shape



Here's a rough plan for the space ship, cobbled together out of primitives so I can see how it might look. My idea is that when you look at the detail you'll see it's going to be all low-technology and built in a slightly comical way.

My original plan was to do something that wasn't too big so you could see the front hatch open and guess where the guy crawled out of it. But maybe it will be more interesting if I let the spaceship be bigger and more detailed - that open hatch doesn't have to be at the very front - it can be anywhere. And after all, I've got 4 months to play with this. So now I'm contemplating the idea being more ambitious with my space ship. Any opinions on this?
