Hello once again. As part of doing visual development one has to have a clear idea of the settings just as much as the characters. But in order to do this it is obviously helpful to know the how and the why. A fancy way of saying "what's the story?" So for Rix imagine a future largely covered by ocean. Certainly if one leaves the cliched tendancy in place its easy to fall into the Strange Da...errr Waterworld motif. But if you bring humans and money into the equation, and our desperate need for self preservation, Human civilization will simply...find a way (great line from Jurassic Park:-)
First up: City Ship Coffee shop sketch. My poor woman had to endure me gorging on coffee while I disucssed the mechanics of a network of buildings on a ship. Bless her.
Second: From this image I realise I must seriously work on my painting skills. Starting next week I'll be getting tutorials from my good friend Eric Wilkerson http://www.starleagueart.com/ Hey, I couldn't just leave the sketch a sketch. I took it further and blinggablanggablam...Photoshop is beautiful.
