FXWARS FRANKENSTEIN'S CASTLE CONCEPT ART

CONCEPT ART: "Frankenstein's Castle"


We will be working in conjunction with the
Hardcore Modeling Challenge & FXWARS ForumForum during the month of October.
The idea is that by October 31st we will have created a opening vfx shot of a remake of "Frankenstein". The idea is that each forum will cater to their strenghts.

This is where you guys come in,

We need CONCEPT ART of "Frankenstein's Castle". The idea is to design a "Frankenstein's Castle" that is both fantastic and believable. So I strongly recommend to do some research before starting the sketches.



Keep in mind that the sketches you do might end up becoming either 3d models or digital matte paintings.



You may design:
  • Exterior shots
  • Interior Main Chamber
  • Doctor Frankensteins Lab.
You may draw :
  • Concept paintings
  • Storyboards
  • Concept Diagrams
You may start posting now, but the Hardcore Modeling Challenge people will use you sketches for a ONE WEEK modelling challenge on October 1st.



These are the rules for this mini challenge:
  • Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
  • Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
  • RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
  • They can be done on any medium.
  • If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
  • The artist also has to post total length of time it took and program used. .
  • You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them).
Good luck

Is there any chance someone could post a little synopsis about the castle described in the Book? Of course we can take our own path on it... but it would be nice to have the 'official' description as a starting point. . Im gona be busy on this all night! LOL.

ok, looks like I'm the first...

aproximately 1:45h in photoshop, including the time for making THIS photo-collage with some pictures I took this summer (from Krakow mainly, some other places too)... it was a great help, as I suck at drawing architecture and buildings...



maybe I should spend more time adding details...and I don't like the trees much, but that's it for today

1.5 Hrs in photoshop. Used 6 different photo resorces. and painted them all together, and changed all the lighting to night. Ill post the ref photos later. It may look too dark on some monitors... low-key is always a pain to do digitally.

Great stuff, guys. I wanna try a different castle style. It's actually just a very big screw. About 40-45 minutes. I'm too lazy to continue.



A monochromatic version
