Distraction Point by Hideyoshi Distraction Point by Hideyoshi
Enough with the crappy submissions lately, here is the real deal! :D
My submission for the Strange Behavior Challenge at CG Society.
It surely is one of the most time consuming artworks I have created so far. But I guess, it doesn't beat some of the commissioned artworks I have painted...
Well, frankly, I just don't know how long this took.

I really wanted to go for a setting in a japanese metropole right at one of those diagonal crossings -just love those.

As you can see, the image is crowded with details, a lot going on everywhere. It's not the way I normally work and that's why I wasn't too happy with the image for long. But I have come to like it now. :)
I like the fact, that I was pushing myself and, well, challenging myself for this contest creating a pretty fleshed out illustration.

The LCD shows a scene from AVP. Apart from everything else, I painted that one from ref.
Oh yes, I HATE that film btw and only used a scene from that because it fits the concept. :D

The crushed airplane is of course (what else?) my White Queen 3D model. :P

Most importantly, check out the detail shots!
:bulletblue:[link]:bulletblue:

These aren't even 100%, more like 60% , varying also!

I am anxiously awaiting the next challenge, this was much fun! :)

Were those jets inspired by F-18s?

Just curious.

I think the aliens are pissed-off because the movie turned out to be shit. They just have to vent off their anger somehow. I may understand them.

The guy who is still watching likes it somehow, and the other guys point and laugh at him behind his back.

haha, agreed. AVP was so dumb and crappy! I detest Hollywood for making those 2 sequels.

YUP.
found.

very nice atmosphere.. a little bewildering actually.
the humor in this is a lot more imminent than the horror/intergalactic warfare backdrop.
really amused by this. :dance:

This is brilliant. You are excellent at cityscapes. I love how the one alien is just sitting on his ass, and the fact that he has become distracted by a scene from Aliens vs Predator is just priceless.

Unbelievable! The aliens are weird too. It's funny how one of them is just sitting on a car and another jumping onto a building shooting laser. Pretty nice!

This looks so full and complete.. I would say it's one of your best pieces. Challenging yourself really worked in your favor. The scene seems very real. Great!

(But I have to say, I hate diagonal crossings, it scares me when the huge wave of people just descends into the intersection from all directions. So I'm glad these alien monster guys have apparently done away with the people here.)
