Scenery thumbnails: Space pirates

Got a bit of training time this week so I did some scene  thumbnails. A really nice concept art program in my city had the students do a pirates of the caribbean meets blade runner as the theme for their background exercise and I decided to give it a try myself. 🙂


I hadn’t planned on sharing these since they’re very loose, but I haven’t posted in a while so here’s what I’m up to! I decided to drop my old background because it was to lifeless and start over with something new. Loosely based on what I got from a theme generator, ”Lonely Shepherd in ghost town”. He’s going to be investigating a deserted town covered by weird vegetation. I’m not sure about giving him a few sheep or leaving him alone, he could be trying to find his herd or something, what do you guys think?

Starting on a new piece! Background this time!

I’m back to doing backgrounds, it’s going to be set in a gothic-inspired setting. On top, quick sketchup layout, under is the blocking of the scene as it stands now, it still feels to empty so I’ll be putting stuff in the sort of court yard in front of the tunnel and putting some furniture and stuff in the tunnel itself. I’ll post the final blocked sketch before getting into the detail work 🙂
