TEOTWAWKI - 'Doomsday' by Hideyoshi TEOTWAWKI - 'Doomsday' by Hideyoshi
Uuah, just finished this.
Tired of it now, don't wanna mess any further with it.

This was my 2nd round challenge entry for Sijun, topic being Doomsday.
I know you don't wanna hear this, but I am not exactly happy with it. Alien design is lame and it lacks scale clarity somehow...
well, the whole concept is just plain sterotypical and the city design is just one of those I always end up doing. Wish I'd have more interesting shapes for the buildings - too late now...
I like the sky colors... :P

I painted over an older rough 3D model render of simple box buildings.

7 h for this, no ref., took advantage of using a ruler on the Cintiq again here for quick detailling... :)

might come back later and fix up things...

Oh yeah, figure out yourselves what TEOTWAWKI means! ;)

Very cool, I like your cityscapes. Any thought of doing the same city without the giant monster/demons?

I love the creature concepts. The shape of the buildings are great too. Very futuristic looking. Props also to the dark sci-fi colors

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -
Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Um, It's the End of the World as We Know It by REM?

Your aliens remind me of an enemy from an anime called "Gravion Zwei." Overall oustanding work. :)
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
is it any good? I mean the anime? :P

There were a few things I didn't like about it (mind you I haven't watched the entire thing out yet), but it seemed decent. Just be forewarned some odd sex-related things do occur, such as guys dressing as girls. >.<

I think the alien design nods towards evangelion. Not a straight interpretation, but when I look at this design evangelion floats to the surface of my mind.

For scale I would have put in a plane or something flying, but since I can't draw a straight line without a ruler, who am I to comment.

Thats superb, I wanna go see this soon, looks like a good film.
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
if it WAS a film... :P

Dang lol, I was thinking of The Day The Earth Stood Still lol, just realised haha..
calebcleveland Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
I agree a bit with the comments regarding the sameness of the city - perhaps a bit of flying traffic ala Star Wars altering course because of the gigantic monsters?
Other than that, superb concept, as always.
Sharonlover Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2008
are you're 'angels' inspired by the Luminoth of Metroid Prime 2 Echoes? Just curious because they closely resemble them.

awesome job BTW, love the city in the background. Oh and if you've never seen a luminoth [link]
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
nope, never seen a luminoth before :)
Sharonlover Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2008
scratch that...i finally had time to read through all the comments. Don't mend to offend as a previous post / ers pointed out.

still an awesome job though :)
AndrewRowling Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2008
I think I see what you mean with the criticism you direct at your own art. The city does tend to look a bit samey - shades of grey, very drab and functional. Perhaps you could look at new city that they're building in the United Arab Emirates at the moment (forgot its name) for inspiration, and show some panic in the populace? Of course, might be hard to pull the last one off from such a distance.

That said, of course it's far better than anything I could accomplish.

And again!! WOAH!!
genlau Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008   Interface Designer
awesome, your scene is very nice~
MrEdison Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Judging by the cars I can conclude that the buildings are really tall. I think that's a good enough scale. :}
It looks like there's a pyramid in the background. Interesting.
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, I put in those pyramids all the time in my cityscapes. Trying to establish a trademark I guess :P
MichaelWalsh Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2008   Interface Designer

I like the angle at which you view the buildings the best, but I don't really like the aliens (no offense) They look good but they're just a bit too... stereotypical... keep up the awesome work though) (I'm feeling a little jealous :D )
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
well, I can't agree more! Those aliens are just plain lame! :D

Hey Lorenz! xDD
sieht zwar wie immer ziemlich gut aus, aber irgendwie wirkt es zu statisch.
zwar sieht man bei dem ersten Mecha-Alien die Fetzen rumfliegen aber die Gebäude scheinen merkwürdigerweise noch heile zu sein O,o
Wie wärs mal mit bissel zerstörung im Bild? Vlt. würds dir dann mehr gefallen =x z.B. die Hochhäuser die grad vom Alien da gestreift werden bissel kaputter machen und vlt. Stromausfall oder sowas.. paar Laser/Beam/Whatever Waffen und die dazugehörigen Effekte würden glaub auch bissel was raushauen.. joaa.. aber ansonsten wie immer doch recht gut geworden =3

bis dann!
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
hey! Danke dir für den KOmmentar!
Hätte ich jetzt nicht erwartet von dir ;)
Aber du hast da echt gute Ideen angepsrochen! Vor allem Stromausfall, darauf hätte ich kommen sollen, haha! :) Vllt. werd ich das Bild bei Gelegenheit mal generalüberholen!
Obwohl ich nicht so für die klischeehaften laserbeams wäre... XD
Nadriel Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2008
Hey! Ja gern geschehen xD
mmh.. joa kA, war mir so aufgefallen ^^" hattest ja selber irgendwie geschrieben, dass du mit dem bild unzufrieden bist.
Joa, cool dir irgendwie weitergeholfen zu haben xD
Jaajaa, die laserbeams xDDD, ja stimmt schon.. is schon ziemlich klischeehaft.. xDD mmh.. wie wärs mit... "Runen" ? also die Mechas beschwören Runen, woraufhin dann irgendwas passiert.. laserbeam von oben oder soas.. kA.. is aber auch ziemlich klischeehaft, ne? ^^"
mmh.. joa.. ka xD
