Grand Space Opera 3D Entry: Jason Butler

Jason Butler has entered the Grand Space Opera 3D.

Latest Update: Lighting: composition & lighting


trying to get my final scene and lighting scheme together.

i think my lighting approach will be very much along the same lines as a lot of my test renders. high-contrast, low-set sort of lighting.

the question is, can i possibly finish this in 48 hours?

aw, hell.

i just returned from my honeymoon and before i return to work tomorrow, i figured i'd put some time in on this.

...and then i see the warhammer cinematic on the front page.

that scenario, almost exactly, is what i wanted to depict in my entry. the whole "lone remaining soldier planting his flag against all odds" kind of thing. but now i'm not so sure i want to do that.

what do you guys think? can i still pursue my original idea or would it be better to go back to the drawing board?

okay, i've abandoned my original concept for fear of being accused of unoriginality, but i've come up with something new and, i think, better.

the new concept will be a 40's/50's sci-fi theme. think of the old buck roders in the 25th century comic strips or the flash gordon serials of the 30's. maybe a little mars attacks! thrown in there, too.

so. retro campy science fiction. should be fun.

sketches to come.

Concept Sketch: moon base concept



(very) rough concept for the moon base (which will be being terrorized by evil martians, if all goes well).

Thumbs up flying saucers

Cool looking saucers, and I like the POV in your moonbase sketch. I'm enjoying your retro approach. After all these years, and the hype on UFOs, can you actually imagine traversing great distances in one or two seater? The big disintegrator gun is right on! Are you going to button-tuck those seats? Nice work. Looking forward to seeing this scene.
