Line Art: Final Line-art for Temple city

I copied the 3D ref sketch onto a piece of large paper and began the process of sketching the final line-art. Basically I pulled the 3D rendered image into Photoshop and sized it to fit the image size I was drawing. From there I measured where each object was in Photoshop and recreated that placement on my paper (laborious isn’t the word for it… yikes).

This took me a day or so working with Verithin blue pencils. Once I was happy with it I took a few hi-rez digital photos of the image and cleaned it up a bit in Photoshop.

I’ll be drawing the attacking ships on a separate sheet of paper and comping them in on layers in Photoshop later. The Mother ship will be created using a Maya ref base and then painted from that base in Photoshop as will the planet.

Still deciding if I want defending ships… I think the image may have more impact if it is just a relentless, ruthless assault by the attacking civilization.

We’ll see… if there are to be defending ships I’m thinking very low-tech… the home world is not a warring one…
Got the axe out and I'm getting my chops back...
