Project 2 Secret Lairs Thumbnails, again

Going back to my cake design.

I like it, but it still doesn't satisfy the idea of being a lair.
I hadn't added textures to the walls, but I do plan on doing that in the final.
I think I will "zoom out" the view more, and have robots around the bottom half of the walls like I did in my earlier thumbnail, and feature some weapons and more robots inprogress and weapons on the bottom.

Thumbnails Secret Lair

Having a hard time thinking of a set up for the mirrors that amplify the sunlight.
I was very lazy on drawing the objects and robots, I just wanted to map out the area.
I was trying to draw the light still coming from the top of the dome, but I found it very hard to work with, so I decided to take the light from the side.
The picture looks pretty clustered and flat, but I was just focusing on the set up.
I think i will look again at the idea of a lens, and then a mirror guiding the lens' reflection, rather than all mirrors.

Online Greenlight Review: Project 2

Having problems with scribd. No matter how many revisions I upload, it won't show the images towards the end. I will try to fix ASAP, this is the 10th revision and it still won't show!


Movie Review: La Belle et la Bete

la belle et la bete

I have really been enjoying the movies we've been shown so far.

Project 2: Secret Lair thumbnails

Using the idea of a lens, I decided to draft another thumnail. Not sure how the set up of the environment in this one works, but it's pretty rough sketch here, anyway.

Using the intensified light it self to heat the sand.

 I actually made many colour drafts but only saved this one, argh!!! Because the colours here have actually been changed a few times, they had became 'dirty' by this point. Not sure if the dull rusty colour scheme shows the atmosphere well, as the character is doing his work to save his people, where at this feels like there is some ill-doing. Also by this time the lighting had been lost
I created this simple tile to use on the walls in my next thumbnails and concept piece, inspired by their textiles. Their textiles features a lot of triangles, square, crosses, with clear lines. This textile is supposed to show that but in stone/mud.

Project 2: Secret Lairs Thumbnails

1. First attempt at a thumbnail
Looked too much like a cake.

2. Developing ideas of the space

3.A silhouette I made to get ideas for the hero prop, using Tuareg items, like tea pots, their cross, jewlery..

The rugs in the pictures will be Taureg textiles.
