Grand Space Opera 2D Entry: Alexandre TUIS

Alexandre TUIS has entered the Grand Space Opera 2D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Coloring WIP: Spacewar Color 5


Oups, here the uncompressed version!
Well a little update!

I have a lot of things to change now.

The configuration of the spaceships, create more things.

And finish the planet.

I love this idea of iron planet. You don't really know if it is a gigantic spaceship or a planet.

And it looks a little like the Dark Seid planet and I like this kind of design.

Even if I am certainly going to develop it.

Hi people!
I'm happy to challenge!
It is a real challenge for me. Because I am rather to specialize in characters. So, I am going to fight to make something which brings me out of the common.
Good luck to you too!

Concept Sketch: SPACEWAR Sketch



Well!
I have decided to make a space opera war, between two type of ship.
I'm thinking of making a city behind or something like the Dark Star...
And few planets in the background.

looks like it could be nice and epic. Might wanna toy around with layout size too to fit all of that in so it's large but not crowded.

Hey Nice sketch here! It reminds me work of H.R.Giger.Are you sure that it's wise to add some large object on background? Im not sure.Picture looks perfect as it is to me.I thing that huge background object could overburden whole work.Looking forward to see your piece more detailed.

yeah your first strokes give the ships a very organic feel. Not sure if that´s intentional but the design is interesting anyway.

I think this piece would be pretty impressive in a wider, 'letterbox'-style frame. Looking forward to seeing more.

malcolmvexxed< Well this is just the sketch..the disposition of few ships and other thing could change a little.
The colors make the difference too, sometimes.

HiPcCuP23< Well Thank you, I have made an Alien recently and it is certainly for that..LOL
For the background I will see with the color how it works.

MrD< Yes it wasn't really intentional. But this is interesting to create forms.

ChrisThatGuy< Yep, maybe I will scaling few elements.

Very cool, Mr. Riddick! That shaped right up, and is looking great. I won't comment on the rendering and finishes becuase you said that you're still working on them, but i will make one small note, if you don't mind: With so much of the ship beautifully curvy, the rectangular flaps or protrusions at the end of the wings seem a little rectilinear and out of place. I confess that I like them in your rough a but better, where instead of being blunted they were sharp and pointy - fit the feel of the rest of the ship, and it was more menacing!
Best of luck, can't wait to see it coming further along!

-mike
