At the end of nothingness in our Universe, begins ‘something’. To not make it so complex, the start of another Universe (alternate Universe??)
For in a time not measured like our own, wars have been raging between the Zor and the Auvik.
The reason (to get to the point), two GODS (one evil human like/or evil Alien like?? And the other a ‘self generated’ GOOD Machine-vehicle- no details right now, it just became), made images of themselves (copies) and of course, each GOD giving their ‘beings/machines’ Eidolon’s (spirits). But, where there is good and evil, well, there is conflict.
To make a long story short, the Zor have their leader, Wor and the machines (cars), have theirs, Sleek (hey, what can I say, can’t come up with a good name right now- ).
For what has seemed forever, the Zor have ruled the Auvik with an evil and brutal method of control. Well, as time went on, a rebellion (of course), came about and a leader for the Auvik was picked, Sleek.
And so, the image I am putting together here is, Sleek representing the oppressed vehicles that no longer want to do as their masters (the Zor) command of them. So hence, the struggle between Wor (the Zor leader) and Sleek, the Auvik representative.
Here is my second layout sketch. I like this one much better (the image on the left). On the right is just a sketch for a face (like the cigar but not the rest, will work on this). At bottom right, detail of the front end of the car (Sleek) and oh, by the way, decided to go with a 32’ Ford Coupe, man, those cars are just so cool and fun to draw. Anywho, you can see (I hope), the shocks/springs, tires and break drums. Louis J. Browne suggested the struggle happen in a junk yard. This would probably be a cool idea. A futuristic junkyard and will allow me to ‘open’ up the image some (left to right) as so it does not look like we are looking through a hole or something. All in all, think I am sticking with this composition (just need to add more action etc). I hope this is what you were thinking of as well Scorpier (or something close- ). Ok, going to draw some more this weekend to start moving on to the final piece. And of course, I will post my process and discuss what I am doing as I go along. Style, drew ideas on paper with pencil. Then scanned in the individual sketches into Photoshop. Combined them all into one document and selected each sketch and sized and moved around. Made a layer multiply, put down purple for the overall base and used a hard brush to do the quick painting style. Dodged and burned as needed. Messed wth Hue&Sat to mess with Wor’s skin color and Levels to mess with Tones. Not too many fancy things, just trying to get ideas down so I can start on the final piece. Oh, for Wor I posed in the mirror to get a quick refernce and did some searching on the internet for vehicle reference and for the chains as well. Also bought some chains so when I get ready to do the detail drawing, I have ‘real’ reference. Think this has been long enough. Any comments suggestions HIGHLY welcomed.
