Atlantis : Sandu Baciu : Finding Atlantis


#1

Hello … Atlantis [World]

I put some sketches, just to have an ideea about how would be…it’s funny, I really don’t know how will be the final ;)…yet…any way, will be a ship sailing/swimming/flying [who know?] toward the lost city of Atantis …
Enjoy!:smiley:

I will attach the last update here -Final-:



#2

hey Sandu , thats looking really nice . i would say that once you get the city in there try and take much of the focal point off the ship and more onto the city , or make that craft the city :slight_smile:

great start!

Cheers

I agree with matellis focus on the city, matte painting is about enviroments, that ship could be the one discovering the city but your focal point needs to be the city


#4

Tnx Matellis, you’ right…I changed the concept toward castle ship…I hope people will like’it…I found that’s a genial idea :thumbsup:
[By the way, on background thay found hockey hall of fame -the building-:)]
10x james, you are right, too…I worked on environment, not as much as it should…
Now I will try to work on the final mood, I’m still pending between an icey blue or a deep green…third step is bellow :wink:


#5

so, I came with an update, more like toward icey look…i like the medussian [gellyfish] castle undeewater look [whoo, what expression :)]. Yap, focal point is on the ship, more like ‘hmmm, we know that’s an underwater city, losted, but we didn’t know about that ship…so we found Atlantis?’…

yes, may be ;)…it was a ship, not a city :).Enjoy!


#6

looks nice but still the spaceship is too big and is the centre of attention.
good work, keep it up.


#7

I agree to anim_ziggy. The submarine should not take more than 3% of the whole image! A matte painting should show the city and the surrounding. The main focus MUST be on the environment. A little submarine pushes the final composition but it should not be in focus.

I like your first concepts. To hide the city and let it be lightend by the submarine is a very nice idea!


#8

@sandu22: matte painting is about enviroments only, this is more like a submarine concept with a background , or a very nice ilustration, try focus only in the enviroment and this must be your focal node, the judges will cenrtanly say that


#9

hi all. 10x for reply, I will try to change the concept…a little bit :)…so I will concentrate on the environment.
First will be the city on the bottem of the ocean with several lighten clouds…[each will take a shape, like sea horses, I’m still searching for best …fit :slight_smile:
thanks
so, next step, more work on the environment…


#10

so, next step, working on sea horses :smiley:


#11

I like the smoke creatures, but your pic might be too busy right now. Too much smoke pillars? They could be blocking too much. Good technique so far.


#12

Hey Sandu , I am finding it really hard to get a sense of scale with your matte painting. Maybe make the plants you have bigger in the foreground and a lot smaller towards the structure. Right now when I look at it the matte I get the feeling the people were as small as ants. hope that helps :smiley:

Cheers


#13

upgrade…yap, it’s true, no sense of scale, so I added few ruins and I changed the clouds…Still in pending for the central figure, maybe will be a lady…hmm…I will add 2-3 scuba’divers, on the bottom, small scale. Thank you all for reply:thumbsup:


#14

almost finish…even if a better name will be ‘Gardians of Atlantis’,anyway,is almost final.

C&C are:love:


#15

Very interesting concept :wink:

Good luck si multa bafta :slight_smile:


#16

…preparing for the second entry :slight_smile: …just based on the mood, light from top left, few ruins on bottom right, one statue bottom left, hmm, not so ‘deeply’, just simple as possible…


#17

so, I added fresh drinks-was hot today:D - until I saw Atlantis circles…only few of them… curiously were similarly to an radiation danger symbol. maybe was a coincidence.


#18

…after that I become very ‘wild’, I rotated, copied and pasted the imagine, I adjusted a little bit the light and I found…hmmm…

'Gates of Atlantis".

Enjoy the second entry :buttrock: [sorry for rezolution, best fit was as below]


#19

Hey Sandu this is looking really nice! the only thing that i can really notice is that you used the same image for all the circles. Try changing each one up a bit :smiley:


#20

very cool concepts, alot of space is in darkness, would like to see some architectures here :slight_smile:
