Latest Update: Concept Sketch: Character sketch

Here's a concept sketch for the lizards which are being used to transport what's left of the refugees posessions.

Woohoo! Here I go then folks! Inspired by all the stuff I've seen here so far I decided that I should have a crack at this... If nothing else at least I'll have a bit of fun and I may even learn something...!

So all the very best of luck to you all and I'll see you back here soon with some ideas...

Later people

Ok, it's been an hour, and I haven't seen a single concept yet. Only 89 or so days to go. Start sketching!

The idea

Here we go then folks - The idea for my entry...

The galactic conflict has been raging for almost a generation. The death toll is immeasurable, not only in military forces, but also in the loss of countless civilian lives.

The conflict has affected everything from trade and industry to discovery and colonization.
But perhaps more importantly it has affected the everyday lives of every person in the galaxy. Fuel has run out, water has dried up or become poisonous, crops have died and animals with them.

With the system gripped in a famine of immense proportions the people have no choice but to leave their homes, livelihoods and heritage behind as they go on a epic search for hope and survival.

First concept sketch of the famine refugee idea...
I quite like the compostion, but I don't know if it's 'epic' enough yet...

neat stuff

Neat idea you have going here...I like the mood, reminds me of the scene from i, robot where the robots all look up to the lone figure next to the Golden Gate bridge remains. Not the same story, but when I saw the sketch it reminded me of it. Keep up the good work, I expect this one to be good.

It does seem epic to me. I think it's a very strong idea, nice sketch too. I can't think of anything I don't like about it.

They look like they could be slaves too. Maybe that ship is their oppressors.

Hmm. . . sounds like they may need to build an ark. And look! They're already lined up two by two.

Sounds like you've got a good story going.

I think if you took the same scene but changed the perspective to much lower, the entire scene might look more powerful and interesting.

nice sketch, think about layers of space to add to the epic quality, there is alot more you can do with whats in the sky area.
good start and good luck!

best wishes for the challenge!

I agree with Lunatique, a more dramatic angle will do some wonders! Good luck

Like the concept. If you're keeping the composition there is a good idea to add something in the foreground to the left. Rocks, more lizards or just an orphan kid standing on a ridge looking for someone to take care of him/her. If you add something to the left, you might want to consider adding something to the right, between the city in the background and the closest lizard. Ruins perhaps.

but what ever you do, keep the lizards.
