Concept / pre-visualization: Greyscale sketch1

And here comes the first sketch, a bit later than expected but RL has started intruding already.

As you can see I went for one of the 'classical' human-alien interactions of golden age SF. The two human maquis seems to be in for a nasty surprise...

...I did tell you that Zeron are shape-shifters, didn't I? ;)

I'd really appreciate your input, particularly composition-wise

Very, very happy to see you in the Challenge, you have been sorely missed.

The composition's pretty good - the main focus on the left and the clustered secondary focus on the right. The main alien is just a bit close to the border left and top.

Slight problem with the pattern on the floor - wouldn't the tiles be square on to the column base?

Whoa! This is getting really cool! She's shapeshifting on the sketch, right? Looks nice!

BY witch software is this great sketch made?

I realy like this style of drawing.
Old 03 March 2008   #38
That is looking awesome! My only beef with the composition at the moment is that the standing man is very dark and that was the very first thing my eyes were drawn to, rather than the Zeron girl. If this is your intent that is cool. I don't know what colour scheme you are going for, but perhaps if the Zeron girl is in a warm colour it would draw attention to her first?

ya man i agree. this ls looking like it will be one of the top images in this contest.
I have to agree with Neko as well about the man in black being way too dark and
a bit distracting at the moment.
Im really digging that Female though hehe......
speaking of which i think i might make the boobs on my female character bigger now lol

amazing concept and love the composition, can't wait to see the final

This is looking fantastic. There's a real sense of story and intrigue about this image which draws the viewer into the scene. Oh yeah, and it's done beautifully too! I agree with Simon about the floor tiles being at an unusual angle against the bases of the columns. By the way, I really like your use of lighting, especially making use of the dark shaded bits for contrast - that adds a lot to the drama of the scene and perfectly matches that golden age sci fi look you describe. Bravo!

Concept / pre-visualization: revised greyscale sketch

Thank you very very much for all your comments, suggestions and wonderful encouragement !

Here is the, slightly revised, sketch:

Baron, Mark I've given a bit more space to the main Zeron and changed the pattern on the floor.

Nekomouse and Dragot: I've toned down the standing maquis, hopefully he fits better (and yes, the Zeron will be warm, she's a red one).

Pegahoul, yes, she is 'shifting on the spot, I'm glad it reads right.

DonRallo thank you! It's Painter with a bit of detailing in Photoshop.

LightSovereign, Jupy, scala, thank you so much, happy you like!

Wonderful stuff. The little changes are excellent. This is already a really cool illustration. By the way, I love the way you've done that little bit of shine on the foreground column
