Uplift Universe - Image Entry: Bill Corbett

Story: They say the cloud bugs of Ross 154 excrete a potent hallucinogen if you stimulated their tentacles for any prolonged amount of time. I guess that’s why gas-riders have the highest mortality rate in the ‘extreme’ sports groups

Background: I guess I have a cynical view of humanity. Once I had thought about an alien enviroment and the creatures that live there I only had to think about how we would exploit that!

Update: Detailed the right hand rocks and added a little haze behing them to finish.


#85

Hey, how about adding some spectators running along the path down there to watch? This way, we could have some cool depth of field using the humans as a visual aid, from foreground to background.

Some of them could be climbing up the rock mounds to join in the fun as well. We still have plenty of time left! :slight_smile:


#86

That’s a wild, exciting image. I love it!


#87

looks really cool and I agree with mdavid I love it

Iban - Thanks v much :slight_smile:

Matthieu - Thanks very much. I followed your suggestion slightly whilst I was refining the rocks on the right. I think it does help the overall perception.

Jerome - I really like your suggestion. I kinda did the perspective without guides so I will try it out and see if it works. It may well be that this isn’t the last picture, but I will be taking a break from it for a little while :slight_smile: Thanks for your input :slight_smile:

Mark - Thankyou so much :slight_smile:

Antone - Thanks, I really appreciate your words :slight_smile:

Really nice!! I love the concept and the excecution is great too. You 2d guys are making me wonder why I am bothering with all this 3D nonsense.


#100

This is such a fantastic image, not only I do love the concept, but also the colour choice and composition. It has a real classic Sci -fi illustation look about it, it reminds me of the golden age of sci-fi illustation (the 70’s). Superb!:thumbsup:


#101

Yea, agreed, it really does feel lik ea classic illustration of old.

Bloody dumbasses after their next fix…The bane of civilization :wip:

gratz on your entry bill…One of my favourites
