The baby pic is gorgeous
Very funny idea. It smells like a secret weapon!
Just take care of your lighting. There seem to be several light sources (look at the top of the bottle, the faces and so on).
Thought about anything like a logo or similar stuff on the hat of the baby?
Or perhaps a jacket or shirt instead of the nappy?

the lighting is not yet finished, i still need to add some light on some objects.
outdoor scenes always have various light sources. main source is the sun, then the bouncing light from the ground *can see best on the soldier with the phone) and then the bouncing light from the sky and other objects with large shapes. in my scene i have a yellow light in the back left, a weaker blue light from the front right, bouncing light from the floor but that does not affect the characters on the front.
i make simple scenes with dummy objects in 3ds max for images, then test lighting with photometric lights or vray to be on the save side. here and tehre you have to Trix a bit too, its a illustration after all.
Right now the background is wrong, but i will change that. in the BG you see a strong glow in the lower middle part, it suggests the sun but that is the wrong position for the sun obviously. It should look correct once i have the things more final.
about the baby hat, i was thinking about decorating it, not sure what i will do. i was also thinking giving him a camouflage cap or a sock, but that will distort the story part for me. the baby supposed to look as if does not belong there and not like the soldiers were dressing it up, taking care of it for a while. its their first diaper change. the baby blue does not go well with tanks, sure thing but i kinda wanted it that way.
Logo would be neat tho, maybe i should think about some funny logo or maybe give the hat some animal face, eyes, nose... let's see.
Thanks for the ideas! cheers

At your first post:
Really must tell you how awesome the character holding the diaper bag is. For me he really makes the image. Looks like the kind of guy just crazy enough to actually change the diaper, and in my mind that's totally appropriate and complimentary to the military context. Very well done.

I am very happy that some people like the image, i was very unsure about painting a baby, it seemed not be the focus of common interests here.
I hope the image will turn out well when i am done.

It's still feels a little unfinished. The main guys area around the mouth does not seem right. The distortion throws off the image a bit as well. Usually you pull it off well though. I'll just wait to see how this image progresses. Are you using 3d as well?
July 23rd, 2009 #71
yes, the image is not final, there is still a lot going on.
There is some 3D too, thebase for the mechas and the grids of the table and roof, bottles.

Good lighting and composition. Nice folds on the canvas material. The guy's skin could use a bit of texturing and the baby's hat needs a few more darks but it's coming on fine.

@randis- That is so cool! I love the concept. It reminds me of Soul Reaver actually. The colour scheme is really gorgeous and it's really visually appealing. Kudos!

@ Baron Impossible
Thanks man. Yes the colors need more depth and the shadows more definition, i will do that in the last render pass, i might discard the whole background tho, i stil dont like the image as it is.
Thank you! i am not sure if i will finish this one tho, as i hinted already i was working on some other concept but will keep that a surprise.
Thank you! yes, the other one is a bit strange, not sure if i will paint that one.
Thanks everyone! Wish you guys good luck too!
I really enjoy watching the various entries from others develop

This is a piece of abstract genious... i love how the idea of a death is represented and the looking-glass--like portal to the living world was made.
