May 2016 - Corrie Engelbrecht

When I read the brief and blog 2 things came to mind, "The Web between World" by Charles Sheffield and "Total Recall" with Colin Farrell.
So I thought of going in those directions and visual inspiration.
Now I have to come up with a Concept sketch!
Cheers for now.

I an thinking of using this for my plate, having the two elevators in the midel ground and back.

Ok ,here I tried somthing. Lets see if it works.

Looking good

Here I did a little bit of work on it and tried to see how it would look
with a different sky.I think the original will work better or not?

I'm new to photoshop and matt painting, so it is going a bit slow.

I think you should keep the original sky, but I feel as though my eyes are drawn to the sun, what you could try is placing the elevator in front of the sun, and creating an interesing sillouette.

Here is an extreme example of what I mean:

I think the darker sky would be really cool, you may need some massive lighting from the ground to be quite visible. Sound like a bit of work. My advice is to choose a base plate and stick to it at this point without making big lighting changes to the plate. Just my 2 cents! ) Have fun!!

Thanks for the feedback Drewsen, I agree the sun is distracting and if I go with the original I will have to make a plan with it.

Liane I like the dark sky but the transition is a problem a as far as lighting is concerned , thanks for the feedback.

I decided for now to go with the star back ground, I liked the idea of a inhabited moon, I mean they travel to other planets and have sky elevators after all.

Just remember that the brief states that it should be set in an 'earth environment'... not sure how strict they are with it
  05 May 2016
True, this is on earth with earths moon, so I don't think it will be a problem, thanks for the observation.

Started working on the elevator a bit.
