Unearthly challenge sketches in Photoshop...duh!
I really enjoy working in greyscale. I know I said this already, but when I'm working in just greyscale and no color....its so relaxing. How do I work with color...I need real help with color! If there is a super pro that is a wiz with color out there just looking for an aspiring young artist to mentor...I'm here!
Yea...I need to get under someones instruction soon. But for now...this competition. The theme is "End Game", so the idea is that these alien objects have crashed into the earth, they contain a virus thingy that spread and feeds on the materials here on earth to grow.
We liked the apartment view as it puts you in a somewhat passive viewing role, and then the action in the second shot turns the apartment into a more active role as the alien thing starts to take over the building. Also we're playing around with the idea that this apartment was owned by a guy that predicted/helped set into motion this event, and no one listened....and regardless of his part in the event he is still taken over.
So I'm trying to play with contrasts throughout the environment. The object light and dark from left to right. The rising sun is supposed to suggest a sliver of hope against the impending doom to the right of the image. Also pushing the clean regular look of the city on the waters edge and the chaos of the right hand side.
I'll keep this thread updated with our progress on the project...hoping to start modeling stuff today, so check back if you're interested
