Hey buddy, thank you It was a shame you’ve been too busy to enter this one. Thanks for dropping by
Thank you Mathias. That is very kind of you mate
Thank you very much. Yeah, me too! Sometimes I think delaying growing up is part of the job description in this business!
Hey Mike, thank you. Funny that you should mention that chair. There are a couple of unused chairs in there. At first I was going to put people or aliens in them but I thought they looked a bit more intriguing empty, for example it might suggest that the occupant had fallen out or something.
And once again I’m grateful to you for your amazingly sharp eyesight. You are right. Those two guys were identical with their linework. And they were not meant to be! I now realise how that happened - I’ve been regularly cloning people to ensure I keep the same scale throughout the image. And in all the confusion that clone got left behind and given the full colour treatment and became part of the scene! I’ve now replaced him with a guy in a different pose.
I am pretty sure now that after fixing that, every character and spacecraft is drawn differently and I’ve updated the final, and the versions available for viewing online
Thanks buddy. That is very kind of you
Thank you very much for your kind words! I’m not sure it’s what the organisers had in mind when they launched this challenge - well, no actually I’m dead certain it’s not what the organisers had in mind. But I always learn stuff in these things and I’m grateful for the fact that the cgsociety opens its challenges to all sorts of illustration styles
Hey thanks Gunilla. Such a shame we weren’t able to see your delightful mind at work producing an entry this time. I love the approach you bring to these challenges
Thank you! The file is pretty huge because of all the complexity and so that’s why I’ve been shrinking the stuff down so much. However a slightly bigger version (at 25% resolution) is here. (856k)
Here’s a bit of the scene at 50%, and this should give a pretty good idea how the file looks at bigger size.
I’ll post some more bits in a post after this one
Hey many thanks buddy. That’s a shame the bigfoots don’t look as good for you any more. Oh well. But at least they can run around a bit more easily now
Thanks mate! Much appreciated
Thank you very much. I admit I could have squeezed many more characters into the scene but I was keen to not let it look too busy, or worse, messy. So that’s why I stopped here
Thank very much That is much appreciated
Hey buddy, thank you! I really appreciate your kind and supportive comments throughout this and my other challenge entries here
