    EOW Round #208: The Arrival of An Alien Rockstar

    EOW Round #208: The Arrival of An Alien Rockstar

    TOPIC: The Arrival of an Alien Rockstar

    Deadline: Tuesday, May 5th


    First, congrats to kingkostas for winning the Street Fighter's Childhood EOW!

    This week's theme is to design a scene depicting the arrival of an alien rockstar (on whatever planet you so choose) Is it a welcoming celebration for a Rolling Stone of a terrestrial society of the future? Has the rock star been exiled and is far from welcome, sneaking past Atmospheric Patrol in order to garner a performance for the citizens? Think about the purpose of the visit. In your image, try to tell a story. Keep in mind that if you don't want to get into any character designing for this round, a very distant bird's eye view of the scene might work in your favor so you wouldn't need to illustrate the rock star.

    Brief:
    1. No, the alien rockstar can't be the Diva from the Fifth Element.
    2. You must post at least once in this W.I.P. thread to be included in the finals thread for the voting poll.


    W.I.P. Challenge: (optional)

    This week's Work In Progress challenge is to pencil sketch two different alien rockstars. I think this would be an opportunity to show off some really cool ideas and bare stylization approaches, i.e. the alien's musical instrument of choice and costume, and also exotic bodily appearance.

    Be on the lookout for next week's Industrial Design of the Week, coming to you shortly.

    If you need more time to get your finals in, let me know and I'll extend the deadline. Good luck!




    Also, for critiques and feedback:

    Thought I'd use this as an excuse to play a bit. Try not to be envious of my spaceship design.

    well, I've adjusted a lot, brought the scale back to a more manageable level. The fish-inspired spaceship is gliding through gigantic skyscrapers here and over slender floating pathways filled with adoring fans. The dancers on the ship are silhouetted against spotlights and I even added the cause of all the fuss, right in the "mouth". I thought the helicopters added a lot of pomp so I threw them in. Still got a bit of tweaking but I think its pretty ready for color. criticism very welcome!

    I'm not sure what the deal is with using bits of photos but I did use photos for the buildings (ugh-the tediousness of painting them). I'm not uber-righteous about photo use myself but please do comment if it is not appropriate for this contest. thanks

    I added some color. Its usually my favorite part but I think this one is stronger really desaturated so i may leave it like this. The ship got brighter in value. Any comments on the changes or coloring appreciated!
