#3

#4

#5

When reading the inspiration page Thistledown just clicked for me… this is the first thing that came to mind. The arrows show the possible animation path I might take with this; will see, might be too much.


#6

maybe considder to make more of the hanging buildings isible. Meaning, place the camera so, that you have more a sence of the enormous depth and size.

And i guess the animation path is too much. You have to considder that you need to model and make much more that will be visible with the othere camera angles.

cheers

I agree Thistledown is the one that got me excited, It’s nice to see someone else using the hanging buildings concept like myself. I like the sketch though I agree with Nothingness in that the animation maybe too much, perhaps something more subtle?


#8

Yeah I agree… would be nice but too ambitious I think. I’ll concentrate on the 3d illustration and then will come up with a plan for the animation. Thanks for the feedback guys :thumbsup:


#9

Heila I wish you all the best Angel… very intrigung concept sketch, will wait for next steps.

Hey man, just dropping by to wish you luck! You were a big help to me in the spectacular challenge. Looking forward to watching your progress here.


#11

Hey guys! thanks for the words :slight_smile:

I’ll have more time to make rounds and work on my entry very soon. Need to meet a big deadline first :wink:


#12

I have to tell you, I wasn’t feeling too inspired with the challenge lately. So I surfed through the Digital Matte Painting forum, got inspired and made the matte background… it’s not finished yet but I have a clear direction on where to place the elements now and I have a color palette to work from as well. This is made with 3 different photos and then I retouched them and painted some more details.


#13

sorry but the ground plate is way too bright for this sky, not matching at all. Neither are there any shadows cast from that setting sun. Keep it up.


#14

hence the “not finished part” :wink:

thx for the comments, I’ll post an update soon… I hope.


#15

#16

really nice concept and really nice matte.
David.


#18

Nice start! :thumbsup:


#19

I haven’t had much time to work on this, I’m really falling behind. Here is a quick update with the mountains retouched a bit. No sense to fine tune right now since I have to build the elements and a city is going to cover most of the valley.

I hope to start modeling soon.

Beautiful looking start. Looks quite natural and photoreal. Nice color too!
