Overall in this activity we we be focused on places rather than people or creatures. These will be the sets, or matte paintings if you like, upon which characters, creatures, or vehicles might play out their respective roles within the broader story line of a game, movie, or art for a print work. My co-moderator and I will present you with a batch of information concerning the setting of a game or story and your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to knock my socks off with your best attempt at drawing that set. I know you can do it!
Until we have a 3D version of this activity, I am willing to accept works that were prepared with 3D programs as long as you pick a single view and export that view to a 2D file format for upload.
Please don't keep everything a secret, working on your image in private only to post it at the very last hour as a surprise. The point of sharing sketches and work in progress material is so everyone can learn from each other, receive crits, compliments and improve their skills in a classroom/workshop like environment. There are no teachers and no students per se, but try to offer help to others when possible. Please be open to receiving crits, and paint-overs or mock ups of your work, as we are all here to participate, have fun, learn, grow and enjoy what each week has to offer.
Planet Tarasio used to be a lush planet full of life, but after years of continus wars and harsh enviroment changes the planet began to die and become a wasteland. All life on the planet began to die off, those that survive when its close to thier time seem to flock to a particular spot. This spot is littered with bones from every kind of species.
The sentients that still live have formed a cult around worshiping some kind of death deity and have taken up residence in the 'Boneyard'.
your job is design the boneyard, what kind of creatures go there to die? are the bones aligned in some special way? Have fun with this idea and any problems or questions feel free to ask
Deadline Aug. 4th
