Born23th - A New Beginning

Hi Everyone!

I am In. Here are my fisrt sketches:

The Earth has been destroyed. Volcanoes are born. The oceans have dried up quickly. The air is now unbreathable but man can continue to live protected by spheres of life ...

Hi all!

Thanks for your comments! Please find today's update. I removed temporarily the half spheres. Easier to work without them.
I've added the sky, some details and enlarged the composition.
What about the perspective? Is it OK?
That's all for today!

This will look great with the color contrast of the blue spheres. Keep it up.

Hi!

Here is today's update
I added some details: volcano - city - lava. I created big buildings with photoshop.(not easy). not finished...
Next steps...
- Find what to put in the foreground right (maybe missile launchers used to destroy meteorites? -> protection tower..)
- finish the city... adding lights and little buildings... (extension)
- adding again details outside the city and atmospheric effects...

still lot's of work!

Any comments?

Like the style of the building on the right, would be cool to see some buildings in the main city following this style.
And I guess the smoke of the background vulcano would be in front of the cloud.

Cheers,

Marc

Thank for your comments mark!

I've decided to delete the smoke. I added a last building. It did not look like the one you were talking about. But It is made of almost the same reference... Il will show you the details in the final Wip...

and here is today's update!

It's getting really nice. Try to unify the black levels a little bit especially in the right portion of the city, since now the blacks of the rocks are quite dark, whereas the darkest portions of the city are rather dark grey.

Good luck and cheers,

Marc
