thanks M_Cederstrom and omegamista glad to be here

As for my concept the idea is that
a dark cloud which has a destructive force destroying everything in his way..
the lonely soldiers watching this destructive cloud tear his city a part!

I want to emphasize that despite the chaos raging the soldier is calm and
showing no emotion he is not afraid at all.

I'm trying to figure out how exactly the soldier should look like ..
is there a strom all around ? or if is there an invasion ?

here is a small update :



any c&c or tips are welcome!

if you decide to go with the distractive clod, i believe that there should be some sort of wind blowing from the Shock wave the Distractive cloud produces. but if you chose to go with the invasion then id say no nature effects are needed, but the solder should be running towards the city to stop the invasion. other wais what kind of a soldier is he?

mannn... it's not fun when you comp suddenly decides to stop working!!
at least my wacom is safe!

i didn't have too much time to work on drawing .. i hope to finish this one

washka : Thanks! it sure does takes a lot of time! but still a lot of fun!
pipo506 : yes i definitely need to draw some wind from the shockwave.. maybe some sort of blizzard ? smashed windows ?
as for the soldier i'm not that good at drawing figures .. im not sure how he should look like , thought maybe drawing him from the back standing still while this chaos is raging.
omegamista : just saw the trailer of the movie , that cloud looks great!

what other things I can draw that could convince that this is a shockwave ?
maybe some flying fractures from the buildings or is that too much destruction from a shockwave ?

i will post some updates soon
