    EOW 171 :: Ho Chi Minh Grand Hotel, At Sunset

    EOW 171 :: Ho Chi Minh Grand Hotel, At Sunset

    EOW 171 :: Ho Chi Minh Grand Hotel, At Sunset

    suggested by gunsbins

    Topic brief:
    “We invite you to begin your Vietnam sightseeing with Ho Chi Minh Grand Hotel, the tallest building in the world. The Grand Hotel skyscraper is a world-class destination and a testament to how far gravity technology has come. The world's tallest building is completely airborne!”

    This week’s topic is somewhat of a continuation of the topic Shanghai in 2112 in the sense that it’s another Asian science fiction setting.

    Equipped with a pool, parking lot, and a nice view to boot...the hotel should be located in the sky, with any kind of hanging structure or anti gravity technology, and you are to design a scene at sunset or dawn for a more dramatic feel. Imagine that this picture will define the hotel for an advertising campaign or something that’d appear on an attraction brochure.



    - Please specify which image is final in this thread!

    i thought id give a shot at an EOW for once. btw, i suck at environments, sooo this should be a good one. haha.

    ok, one huuuuge floating tower over vietnam. tried to emphasize the 3 point perspective. this tower is fucking huge! that kanji looking thing at the base of the tower is actually a forest, like a central park type deal .

    Charlie D = Concept designer and not a Fine Art Painter, so if Client wants a fine art/photorealism image i'd respectfully suggest they pay me for concept and then look elsewhere

    Lightpunk, holy shit dude, cool as hell concepts! Really digging it

    Here is my chosen thumbnail! Wondering if it should have some wires reaching down to the city below.

    Really nice thumbnails Lightpunk! Liking the forms in there, reminds me somewhat of Homeworld.

    @Urotskidoji - I think wires hanging down would be cool.

    @lightpunk: love the colours and the dynamic angle on the first one.

    @Urötskidoji: I'm liking the real life window texture, gives the building a nice depth

    Here's my Final.

    Floating 10,000 ft above the River lowlands of Vietnam, the Ho Chi Minh Grand Hotel and Casino Resort.
    Moisture capture technologies feed the hundreds of fountains and pools that circle the resorts hub, whilst at the same time giving the illusion of the complex floating on clouds.

    this is splendid!!
    I hope this kind of dirigible architecture really happens, you dont need wacky antigravity, just ultralight ultra strong materials. you could have it slowly cruising around, docking at the empire state, hovering over game reserves or coral reefs, its magic. great work. great image too.

    @DrZero, thanks man! Your final looks great.

    Here is my final image. Changed Bottom part of building with a transparent dome for a mix of modern and fantasy look.
    Nice works everyone. Keep up the good work.

    I thought I'd have a stab at this. I am very bad at drawing straight lines with a mouse.

    I decided to go for bold, vibrant colors in this one, cuz that's what I pictured when I read "travel brochure", something that'll catch your eye. Kinda taking a speed-painting make-it-up-as-you-go approach to this (though I did use references for the sunset), so here's where I'm at. Hopefully I'll have time to work on it a bit more before the final.

    Very nice entries so far, all. Thanks for the topic, gunsbins. I'll be on holiday this weekend too, so here's my final:

    Molecular Resonance antigravity technology (popularly known as Bubbletech) has been around for decades. It has been used in transport vehicles, expos, and some upscale houses. Ho Chi Minh Grand is by far the largest application of antigravity tech in the world to date. Amenities include a convention center, planetarium and observatory, "underground" parking, and an 18-hole "sky high" golf course.

    Well I hit kind of a wall on knowing how to progress further on this, but I'm happy with how it came out. Good luck everyone!
