Concept Sketch: just a sketch



This is my first image made in Photoshop. I know its nothing special but I hope a better scanned image will be probably added in the future.


My vision:

There is large spaceship on the orbit near the Moon.The ship will use some foton beam to crash one of the Planets Moon and the meteors from the moon will cause vast devastation of the civilisation of the planet. In the foreground there will be a emperor /probably woman/ looking on the end of their world.

Please comment everithing you like and dislike too.
Good luck to everyone.

Modeling: Some buildings



I made some buildings that will be used in the city scape. But I'm still working on others.

Modeling: city model



Ok so I made my test model of the city with 4 higher buildings. The houses at the feet of the scycrapers will be deleted and some higer complex buildings will be added.

Not to rock the boat, but that building on the right looks like a building that i have seen in Yokohama this summer. It is almost next to Yokohama Landmark Tower (highest building in Japan with the fastest elevator in the world, 40 sec. to reach 275 meter) and close where the 2005 World Exhibition will be held.

I can't blame you, i have been there, and some of the buildings there are of an even more bizarre design than i have seen here in the challenge.

Question

So what do you people think about this idea of beeing crushed by hundreds of meteors, all city in panic and broken emperor who has to look at it all?

Nothing wrong with getting cool architecture from real buildings In fact several modern buildings look even more sci-fi than you see in films!

I like all the designs for individual buildings - but feel you need to work on the overall composition of the image before you put too much work into the city. Modelling too early might cause you headaches later if you decide you need to radically change something to suit a new composition idea. It will also help you work out which parts of the image will be largest in the final 2D image so you can focus your time on the most important parts of the image.

I would like to see your more detailed concept sketches including the woman in the foreground. I will keep an eye on this thread!

Red face

I am working on it but i need to find someone with scanner to scan it because painting in computer 2D is the worse I can make.

I gave up on scanners a long time ago - I now use a digital camera to get pictures into the PC instead. Hope you find a way... even perhaps as simple as holding your picture up beside the screen and trying to copy it!

Why didn't think of that, at home my scanner finally kicked the bucket, and in my rush to get to my work this morning i forget to take sketches with me so that i could scan them here.

I like the idea of an Emperor/SomeoneWithPower watching the devastation. It could give a desolate, unique POV to your work. Not a simple goal to accomplish, tho.


Very nice buildings.

I think that if you have the queen touching the glass of a panoramic window, her head slightly bowed in grief, you can see her from the side and slightly back, and also see her reflection in the glass full face. The thought needs to be given to how to convey her state position. A crown would be too cliche. You might have to settle for just powerful and wealthy looking.
