CGChallenge XXVII - TEN - azazel

I had a lot of trouble coming with something that not only is at least in some way 10-related, but also mine - It was a long process, and in some way, still in progress. I Listed everything I could think of when it comes to ten, and then I listed the visuals I was keen to explore, and basically looked for possible intersections, and then went on a tangent from there. In the end, I chose the theme that is close to my heart - far away worlds - and will try to weave various more or less subtle tens into the image. I even considered using 10x10 grid as a base for composition, but it doesn't work that way.

So far, obviously, ten moons in the sky, ten main living structures... other living things in the scene will by 10-times radially symmetrical, or have 10-segmented bodies.

Anyway, even if I'll stray far away from the 10 theme, it still looks like a fun image to work with.

It's good to be back in the game . Good luck everyone.

Thanks guys .
I had a chance to do some more work on it in the last few days (I did the first version some days ago, but waited with posting until I had something more ). Needs more population still, but I'm already anxious to get to the texturing and colours stage.

Hey Anders! Maybe you'll enter too, just like old times ? Would be fun .

Little update: some lifeforms - either symmetrical, or just ten-legged. I'd like to do more, as it's fun, but I'm having some trouble placing them in the image - so they don't wreck the composition, are at all visible, and so on.

Those are quick and dirty - but I think they'll do, they won't be that big in the final image.

looking frickin awesome, again!! just hoping you'll keep some of the simplicity you have going already and not clutter the empty areas to much.

sadly the challenge was announced at the worst possible time for me so i won't be able to join, but i'll keep an eye on it from now!

Yeah, that's the tricky part - I want to make it a high-res image, so the detail should be there - but the simplicity is important as well.

Well, maybe next time

First pass at the textures - some tweaks needed, but I like the direction.

This is looking great so far! I love the composition. Strong and simple.. and I can feel an echo of number 10 in it... The big, central moon, like number 0, and the first big building on the front, like number 1. Do you have any color reference, or quick sketch of color scheme? Just wondering if this is going to be so cold. Are you planing on breaking this hue, into some more warm colors in the foregrond?
