Thanks a load you guys!Your support is what makes me going.Mike;its an honor to here from you sir.i posted this pic before making any big adjustments to see if you guys like the composition.I will make the necessary changes soon.I also feel the explosion lacks impact.so maybe Ill change that as well.

Cheers to all!


#43

O.K. I just made a whole lot of changes to the painting.I worked on the perspective & I hope the death looks more imposing now.All crits are most welcome.

Cheers to all!

Prabath - It’s looking good. I appreciate how you’re trying to make the image less symmetrical, but the proper way to do that would be to rerender the model with proper perspective. It shouldn’t bee too hard: You have the model, and you certainly have the time! But just cutting and pasting and flipping parts of your image is just giving you areas that are not correctly in perspective with the rest of the piece. I used a perspective grid overlaid on your image to show you what I mean:

So if you really want to change your initial idea and make it assymetrical, you might be better off starting from a whgole new render as the underlying basis for your piece. Personally, I didn’t think the symmetrical version was so bad.
But I do like the work on the clouds and explosions!

Anyhow, hope this was what you wnated. Good luck!

Hey Mike,thanks for all the help.I have some major issues making the said adjustments.First of all it would be best that you know that I dont own my own PC.Ive been working from a net cafe all this time.So its been a long time since Ive had to delete the original models Ive made for the sake of "disk space".Now I only have the raw photos to work from.I hope you see my predicament.However I still have the original several renders with me,so I will try to make the best out of them but I cant be too sure,cause at the end of the day its not my own PC Im working from.As for the time factor it presents a far more sad storycause Ive got exams coming in campus.So you see I have my plate full,but I will try my best to make things right.If I fall short I just hopr I wont loose a great fan.

Cheers!

Wow, I didn’t realize that was the case! Given that, I am going to respectfully disagree with the NextOne: I still think the symmetrical one works really well. If you still had the 3D files, you could work with this new layout. But as all of your renders of the 3D models were done with the symmetrical layout, then that’s what you’ve got: I think you should just go back to post 36 and work from there.

I think perhaps the biggest lesson here is next time around to figure out what your layout and composition is before you render your models out, and definitely before you throw away all the files. Forget about using a computer, you could work out your whole composition on paper before you ever get to a computer and have people give you valuable feedback about what works before you spend too much time rendering out a layout that doesn’t work for you. But that’s just my opinion, good luck to you no matter what.

Thanks for sharing that Mike.I really appreciate your understanding.However I think I should stick to the current composition & try to work the perspective from there,because once I changed it I had kept too faithfully to the symmetrical architecture.This one feels more random & less deliberate.Perhaps Ill post you what I will get once Im done with the perspective & you can help me check if it works.

Thanks!


#48

Really “eye-cathing” image, vell done. Add some more detailes on near view and it will become really colorfull and “powerfull” picture.

Keep on.


#49

You use of architecture and atmospherics have captured perfectly the spirit of one of the
chapters in gregs novel.Well done.Even more so I admire your perseverance in working from
the cybercafe!The hourly charges must be enourmous.Can’t you use the school computers?


#50

Thanks again to all you guys who`s been sticking with me.

Cheers!


#51

Cheers!

The story behind Eon touches the theme of mans inhumanity to man in many levels.Perhaps the epitome of the resulting destruction is the Death as portrayed in the storyline.As the subject matter presented many creative opportunities to present a rendition of the world created by Gregs imagination I personally opted to work on this theme of destruction & catastrophe.So the Death was an easy subject choice.My initial approach was to present the destruction of a futuristic cityscape through cataclismic bombardment.

The story describes the Death as a “crown-fire”.This required for a panoramic shot.I wanted the piece to look like a scene from a science fiction movie.I did some reference work to come up with a unique architecture fo my city.The inspiration for this element came from the cubic architecture of coruscant from Star Wars.
Then I moved on to the explosion.I did a lot of references to get the exact look I needed.It had to be convincing & epic at the same time.It initially took a long time to get this right.In the end all the trial & error payed off & one can see the result of that in this final image.


#58

Only thing I would say is that there is no real depth in this image. A ship in the forground should help make this one that much more successful. Good luck with the final image though!:thumbsup:


#59

Just added some additional archtecture like roads & added atmospheric effects.Let me know what works & what doesn`t.

Cheers!

I like the roads, they’re a nice touch!
cheers…
