Eon (Illustration) Entry: Andrzej Rudz


Andrzej Rudz is entered in the “Eon Challenge” update: View Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Return


My concept is not impresive but it is good for the beginning :].


Now the reel work.

At the beginning I put all elements (4 photos) in one scene ( just like in the concept work).

All pictures come from www.ref-base.com


Now time to get third plan – sky.
The sky is very important . The light,clouds, and the color sky acctent mood in pictures.
For this scene I choice sunset. I mixed many photo and I use brush in Photoshop ( You make this brush it self, simple select nice cloud and select “DEFINE BRUSH from EDIT in top menu ). Finaly adept all element to sky ( color , contrast ect


Nice looking picture so far, and good use of models and photos.
What does it have to do with Eon? Sorry, i just missed that part…

good luck!



Thanks Mike,

It has its spirit :] . Seriously - this is only a free interpratation. This is not spectacular s-f picture ( cool space ship and greate heroes) - right. But I make it for fun. If you wait for a final work, maybe you will like it, too. I hope so.

And Mike by the way, you make great job with your painting. I like it very much.



If you wait for a final work, maybe you will like it, too.

Andrzej - Your work is so tight, I thought the last piece WAS the final work! I look forward to seieng where you take it from here, and thanks for the nice words. Good luck!



Nice / Fajne :thumbsup:

Good start and interesting composition… I`m just not sure about the WW2 German… maybe you can find a soldier from the usa/russian blocks which will match the EON story :shrug:

I wish you good luck and alot of fun :slight_smile:


Very different and realistic work, a whole new point of view I think - I like it much :thumbsup:


I agree with kerem here.This piece stands out for its unique approach.I also wonder whether you could show us how you came from sketch to what you have now(a little in depth).Cant wait for the final result.



The look is awsome!

I really like the landscape in the foreground which really seems to capture what the book described without making it look desert. The scrub brush in this image is beatuiful ;).

I dont mind the soldiers garb to much, but is it supposed to be inside one of the chambers or in another dimension or earth?


like the tired soldier look, reminds me of mirsky or the other russian he runs into after theyve left the rest of there companions behind. good choice of images


Hey Guys

Thanks for kindly words. I hope my work surprised you. Of course in a nice way . I am almost comming to an end of my work. As I said before, this image won’t be spectacular. I put on the mood and telling a story. I think story is the most important thing in image. (In my opinion it is better when an image has 1000 increadible stories than non).

And now mere information: thank to www.ref-base.com final image will have very big resolution ( 6800x2000). Thanks guys for access to your photos base. I owe you.



superb composition dude! :eek: especially when u added the sky n colour wash!

even the soldier added that dramatic touch to it! awesome man! :buttrock:

Thank you for all your opinions. I am very gratful for all of them :].

Here comes the next update…

I came into the conclusion that the picture hasn’t got enough emotion. To better tell the story I decided to add another person :]. This gave us a real interaction between our two character.

At this point I want to thank www.ref-base.com for the image of a dog. It hasn’t been in the photo library, however ref-base.com provided me with a photo of the dog that I had been looking for. I used Wish List option on their website. Thanks guys!!!


Time to change the soldier into a future warrior. All changes are done by painting on the orginal photo


very nice work man… keep it up


The last new objact in scene :]. The Big enemy ship and light color correction. Next update will be final image.
