Just a raw render using ink n paint shader. Added some more details to emphasise the scale of the ship As you can see i split up the larger pipes into smaller ones, segmented the armored hull exterior of the top to break up the curves slightly and add some line dynamics, added some louvred style cells along the passenger area and also recessed the top turrents slightly into the ship. This is rendered with 6 duplicated objects so the center is orthographic (i think i will re-render and photoshop in a perspective for the 3d) I think the line render looks best rather than trying to emulate 3d with textures. Also need to add some dimensioning and presentation stuff (not sure if the clean or some sort of techy/grungy approach would be better). Also i have no idea what to call it D:
Anyway i havent worked too much on this because ive kinda started playing Aion (addictively), though i should get this finished before the deadline
I made a blue version of the render and although the lighting works better with that i decided to go with the yellow/beigey theme. Turned off shadows and did just a line render. Hopefully this adheres to the requirements
EDIT: Changed the name. I highly doubt there is one with this name
All Original Designs, 100% digitally hand Drawn, Painted & Balanced for best performance in the game environment, and easy for the Player and Viewer understanding, something that is interesting and easy to adapt to...
completion: 8.3 Hours
Docking Bay would be the In and Out entrance...
I always Respect other artists, I do wish u guys luck!
Something has to get all those parts to the brain so it can build more robots, and this guy's one of them. The Guzzler's job is to search out all those broken down cars lying around and drain them dry of all their useful liquids, from gasoline to motor oil. If he happens to run into some strange little living doll along the way, well it's a bit more interesting of a prize than the contents of a gas tank.
This was a ton of fun to work on. I rarely draw machines so it was definitely a bit of a challenge to work out a design. In the end, this guy's what I came up with for my entry to the Beasts of 9 contest.
Well, here is my entry... I want to do another one but time is really short :/ My personal deadline is 4th October, can't work on anything after that. Wanted to do thumb No 6 (this is No 16 btw, I reversed front and back of the ship in the end)
After failing to obtain the 9 fragments of The Scientists soul - The Machine, robbed of its own spark of life was thought to have been destroyed. It was left - broken, crushed, and dying. Yet having been spawned from the mind and drive of man, The Machine's will to survive was imperishable. Refusing to give in to the blackness, it called to its spawns for aid. Heeding its call, they came to help, but were instead mercilessly consumed. The Machine began feeding on the shards of itself, dwelling within the thousands of its underlings spread across the land. Yet the more it fed, the more it hungered...
Soon all things, great and small, learned to fear the coming of the black cloud. Even those which had once served its will, now fled from before it - knowing that being caught meant a fate much worse than death...
Born from a thousand tormented minds, fused together by wrath and driven by hunger and rage - Knowing only one purpose: To live...survive...grow. To live that it may find those filthy rags who sought to destroy it. Soon they too will be found - They too will be a part of it - And they too will know the fury of The Hive Mind.
