Creative Session Preview ...
Tomorrow will be a busy day ... Rockstar has its monthly creative session where people who have created digital paintings can have them printed out and then obtain advice and tips from others in attendance ... This will be my first time to attend (and I credit Tuesday Art Group and my own blogging with getting me to the point where I believe I can attend). I may have another quite different work done by tomorrow, but for now I'm putting an pre-session exclusive up for TAG to critique ... ;-)
I have in mind an intellectual property tentatively called "Privateer" that puts the reader/viewer/player in the person of a government official who is also a poacher and smuggler of alien creatures, biological products, technologies, and such (anything that will turn a profit). His goal is to get as much as he can out of the planet he's working on while walking a delicate tightrope between Eco-Rangers, other poachers, and the planet's lone sentient species. Only later does he uncover a terrible secret that could undermine everything he is doing, both good and bad.
This painting was inspired by Wayne Barlowe's Expedition paintings, and it will be the jumping off point for other digital art, as well as vehicle and creature designs. Oh, and I won't forget to also post updates to my Hero Worship scribbles ... It's all about becoming comfortable with the medium and the tools ...
