just starting out here. not really sure what i’m going to do in the end but at least this is a start


#3

Paul, nice start. Of all the entries I think you’re the only one to understand the geometery of the chambers!


#4

Looks a bit familiar.


#5

honestly, never saw that link before, thanks though.


#6

Nice work so far, BC!

Given the story that all of the Challenge entrants are working from, complete with cylindrical chambers with the light-source going down the center, I think you’ll find a lot of people capturing similar kinds of shots. Doesn’t mean anyone’s ripping off anything from Todd Lockwood, even though he illustrated a similar story. If we’re ripping off from anyone, it’s Greg Bear… and everyone has permission for that! :slight_smile:


#7

Well said. given that most people haven’t read the book and are all going from a 1 paragraph description on each world I would say that I’m suprised to see so many different takes on the idea.


#8

agree with walrus, the invasionscene is quiet much described exactly that way and i done a very simular type of shot as well in my thumbnails wich means nothing, the book describes it that way :slight_smile: nice sketch BP_C, keep it up :slight_smile:


#9

#10

First thing I thought of when I saw it was scene from I Robot where will smith jumps in beam. Sorry but it came into mind in about a sec.


#11

Thats a cool concept ,keep going dude.


#12

very nice sketch man. i love it


#13

One constructive comment that I would point out is the dimensions of the cylinder: As someone pointed out on the oh-so-helpful Book Discussion thread, the cylinders are approximately 50km diameter and 30km deep. So each chamber is roughly the proportions of… I don’t know, a can of tuna? A roll of Duct Tape? A double-tall petri-dish? You’ve depicted a much deeper chamber, and you might want to consider balancing the proportions a bit more towards the text. But of course this is only a first sketch… many more to go! :slight_smile:

I feel like a little bit of air is missing,maybe open up the canvas a bit more to bring in the HUGE feeling.
Nice sketch and start!
HAve fun!!!


#15

yep , i agree with you on that one…when i drew it i was thinkin’ the same thing.
i’ve got another couple of ideas brewing in my head that i need to put down to paper.
thanks for the comments and critiques , all are always welcome and wanted.

good luck to all


#16

okay, changing gears here. i’ve decided to ditch the previous idea, and i’m going to try to do something with the vtol from the book.


#17

ok, i’m tired now.

just a colour blocking for now.
still trying to nail down what i’m doing for the wall and whatnot.


#18

Really nice colors here, nice concept. Good luck :slight_smile:
