Concept / pre-visualization: encounter



Hello all:
I've no clue what to do for this next challenge, but I'll try to come up with something interesting though... fingers crossed!
In the mean time, my ideas go round some kind of "encounter of the 3rd kind". In this little sketch I play with the idea that we humans wouldn't look like some intelligent species for an alien visitor...we're some times too focus on absolute nothing to seem so.

Good luck everyone!

Hi again:
I've ditched the cartoony look and focus instead on something a bit more realistic. I'm going for something inspired by Stanislaw Lem's "Solaris", where it's not clear who's contacting who. To spice it up, humans have already a alien race in their side.
Let me know what you think... and thanks for dropping by!

WIP for the background. I like the reflective surface of the solaris-like alien form, but I'm not sure about the colours, don't know yet if the reflection should be somehow different in hues, or have some artifacts...

further progress in both background and characters... Again, my inspiration is Solaris and the alien-ness of aliens, here represented in the spherical intriguing presence that humans and already known aliens check out.
I'm beginning to feel funny about the colours of space suits and the composition itself, but I'll work it as I go.
Cheers.

Great entry and composition! Looking forward to it!

I absolutely love it man! Muy bueno, si señor, me encanta. You have to reinforce the focus of the composition, the point where the fingers almost touch. Otherwise I think you have s very strong entry. I'll keep my eyes nailed to your thread.

Hey Raul, really great concept my friend, I like a lot! The enviroment for your image is really great, a strong image for sure. The colours in this stage look working well . Perhaps a bit more spherical form on the reflection figures, but is a minor detail That is looking awesome! Again, great work and for sure following this thread Cheers my friend!! ( yes, time for some tequila and beers for inspiration ) (Me gusta mucho tu concepto, tiene mucha fuerza y transmite mucho, vamos Raul!! a terminar y a festejar con unas buenas cañas bien frías )

I'm pretty much done with the background but still some work ahead to properly cut out shapes and add to the floaty feeling. And rework the mirrored image too...
