#81

Thanks for all the comments!
The TIE fighter is done. To much detail but it was fun, I’m planning to finish it of completely when this challenge is done.
So now back to the main illustration, be back soon.

Added some new bushes. Comes from a collection of bushes and trees that I did in Vue and Bryce a year ago, just to have for projects like this.

This is the image so far, almost done! Will work more on Vader and the of course the sky. Have also added some more haze (thanks nwiz25 for the comment about that :slight_smile:

A small update. More detail on Vader and in the city. Also added some more light reflection on the building and additional “noize”. Some color correction but haven’t desided yet.

great, inspirational work! you’ve definitely done your research :smiley:

hate to say it, but i think i prefer the pose of vader in the earlier, concept pictures - i think it made it much more clear what he was doing when he wasn’t obscured by the bushes. i also think there is a certain leaning to that pose that emphasizes what he is doing :stuck_out_tongue:

good luck!


#88

Thanks for your input Hollietree!
Yes you have a point there and thats something that I have been thinking of… I shall take a shot at it and try to change his position. It’s hard not to get carried away by new ideas and concepts, sometimes it’s important to stick with the original idea :-). So input of this kind is very helpful when you are your own director …

Changed Vaders pose a litte, more back to the first sketch and I think this works better.

awwesome! now that looks a lot better. great stuff :smiley: probably the entry on this challenge that has made me laugh the most, congrats!


#91

very nicely done!and so unexpected!! that’s the point !good luck!


#92

that is the funniest entry i’ve seen so far!
first i thought, omg just another well rendered image that has nothing to do with “strange behavior” but now that i see he’s pissing into the bush i really have to say: GOOD JOB!
haha


#93

This is more or less the final image. Will let it “rest” for some more days and maybe do some more things - I don’t know. But I’m more or less happy with it now :slight_smile:

#94

awesome! ok, maybe it’s too late to suggest something, since you’re almost done,
BUT i think your work would be improved if you let someone look over his shoulders while pissing into the bush! at least i’d laugh so hard i swear =)


#95

Did a clean up of all the files for this project and thought that a little show case of all the 3D models would be nice.

This is it, the FINAL image!
The story is simple: The Stormtroopers are having their weekly after work with the boss.
Lesson to learn: – Don’t drink and drive!

How I did the painting the short version:
First i did a quick drawing in my sketch book. Scanned that and did some color testing.
After that I did all the “parts” for the scene in Luxology Modo and arranged them in Photoshop for texturing and color.
This is the biggest and most fun “illustration” I’ve ever done and it’s been a lot of fun. Thank you all for the C&C :slight_smile:

SCULPTING A GALAXY by Lorne Peterson
Just wanted to give you a book tip. I should have bought this book a long time ago but finally it arrived today, a little late because it is a very good recourse book. This is a must if you’r interested in building models and Star Wars models in perticular. Lots of very good close up photos (216 pages :-).

You can buy it here Amazone UK for only £10.50
There is a very cool Limited Edition with lots of very cool stuff but The book is the same. I sells for £275.00 but that one don’t fit my budget right now :frowning:

More info on the Limited Edition here and here
It’s a must have some day …
