@xraygunner: haha I ve been waiting for mod to approve my thread before I can post anything else , so here we go.
After a few days of searching for references of mood&tone, designs and compositing, I have put together a few moodboards of what I like best for the theme .
A kind of “get ready” moment for a hero character who 's about to deploy/ take first step into a unknown world . Surround is a fleet/team of supporter/ other teams. I got a better back story for this in my head but I will tell more about it in next updates smiley
disclamer : Just in case, All artworks below are for references only, they are no way my works or wip whatsoever lol.
Character pose/compositing/mood references: Hero character is the main object at foreground, may be he/she is standing in a dock area of a space ship or shuttle . background is vast surround world( the unknown ) and other teams.
Character design references :
Kind of "space walker " but not so much of heavy coverage style. I want the human inside the suit are more vulnerable/ exposed to danger. which bring out the feeling of danger, uncertainty and anxious.
references for the vast unknown world awaiting to be explored. I really like the spiral composition in the first 3 references, make it feel like the scene has a center point, some sort of entrance/ gate . The other 3 references is for POV & feel.
That’s it , first update ! wink
Next one will be some sketches and concepts !
