Concept Sketch: Untitled right now

Just the first thought that came to mind so far. I kind of like the idea of these hovering organic towers withing a vast ocean. I will toy with this idea more, different towers and different landscapes.

NIce start....

Great Idea, have fun with it!

Concept Sketch: Towers

I think I want these towers to be connected somehow... perhaps an organic "version" of a wooden bridge; this sketch is vague as to what they are. I figured the connecting "bridges" might hint at the possibility of a civilization.

I also included a detail of how the sections may connect; this is somewhat organic. I think i might want them to be more structural, but we'll see.

Concept Sketch: 3rd wip sketch

These are two details of how the "bridges" may connect to the towers. I also through in a quick sketch of another possibility for the towers themselves.

Concept Sketch: Color

Here's the same idea, with photoshop color.

One of the issues I'm considering right now is the "water". I'm thinking its consitency should make it look like not-water. Perhaps more gelatinous, or perhaps a sea of shards of something. I'm not sure.

edit: I also think perhaps I may add many more of these towers, at different levels. Perhaps also in different levels of corrosion. I'd like to have a feeling this could be the home of a civilization of some kind.

EDIT: All brutal critisicm is most welcome!

Concept Sketch: Generators?

Still playing with the same idea. I'm thinking these are power generators of some kind; power is created by the "water" flowing into these holes/vortices.

Concept Sketch: Another version

Another variation. I change the composition and some other things. I have at least one more variation on these theme; perhaps more than one. I feel I'm gettin closer to something I like; I would really appreciate all comments and/or critique. Thanks alot!
