Default Beyond Pandora - Björn Kähler - 02-07-2017, 03:55 PM

Hey fellow matte-artists,

here are my first quick composition exploration sketches for this challenge.


I took the time to re-watch AVATAR again and its still such a marvelous world to dive in.
Really cool topic, I´m excited to start this one.
Let me which of these sketches you like and which of them are utter nonsense, so I know how to proceed :D

happy painting guys!
All the best
Björn

Wow man! First off, thanks a-lot for giving a start to a dead contest; after like a week, we received just 2 responses, that too including the Jury member, Frederic St-Arnaud, who actually elaborated my title of "Beyond Pandora"! So sad! Anyways, it's great to see you again after your win at the "CG Universe" (www.cguniverse.net)!

I loved all of them! But, my favorites are : D (best), H & C (last)! I chose D, because it shows the floating mountains of the Pandora moon at far distance, with great depth and perspective!!! Keep it up, man! Take care.

Thanks,

hey guys,

thanks for your response and creative feedback. I am not really happy with most of these sketches, so I am doing a few more of these exploration sketches.

It´s sad to see there is no participation yet :( This certainly needs more attention! Maybe we can find some websites to spread the news, like 3dtotal, CGmeetup, CGChannel and similar sites?

Since I want to try out a 3D heavy approach, I have been doing some tests, creating trees in speedtree and scattering those around. Its quite fun and I got some interesting results (maybe a tad bit too much fog ^^):

You are most welcome, Bjorn! Yeah, man! :( I already posted the ad of the challenge at the CGSociety : http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthre...=196&t=1436406. But still, no reply! :( I don't know the reason! The concept looks promising! I think, you might try to flesh out a couple of the B&W WIP images that, you created initially; I really loved many of them! :) Keep it up! Take care.

Probably the problem is, that most forums arent active anymore (CGTalk included unfortunately). I think you should try to advertise on all the different Facebook pages (CGChannel, CGmeetup, 3DTotal ...), just contact them they usually share challenges like this one.

Yeah, I will do so! This is a huge opportunity for budding matte artists, to test their skills; don't know why none are interested! A big thanks to you, Bjorn for keeping the contest alive! :) You are just great!

PS : I would love to see couple of your B/W concept sketches fleshed out! They look surreal!

Take care.

Thanks,

Hey man,

A bit late to the party but nice concepts! :) I really like D & C. I think D with the FG vines from A flipped, would be killer.

Keep it up,
