    Mars Design Project Progress

    Big review coming up this Friday. Have a ton of renderings to finish, and looking for advice on composition/technique.
    I am not the best at drawing people, but I know I need to add them eventually, into a majority of the drawings.

    Sorry for such large image files in my posts. I'm still getting a feel for the proper image sizes to upload on CA.

    I've never truly rendered anything into completion, but that is the objective for all of my renderings this week. I'm a little nervous, and unsure of how the results will turn out.

    Lately I have been listening to Chris Oatley's podcasts as I work on my project. I've found all the conversations between him and fellow artists incredibly insightful, motivational, and inspiring. He has so much to say, and he asks such great questions which end up eliciting such a creative conversation between great minds. I'm considering signing up for his Magic Box course after I graduate, in May, so that I can continue to develop my skills and hopefully (fingers crossed) land an internship next year.

    Below is my latest progress. I've been hopping between renderings, trying to keep things fresh. I'm not too fond of the bottom-most rendering in my last post. It was intended to be a view of an indoor farming facility, but I think it is failing to communicate any significant ideas. If time allows, I will redesign that particular scene.

    Completely redrew the ambiguous perspective view of Mars' indoor farming facility. It is still unclear as to what the perspective is showing, but I believe the details I add pertaining to plants will clear that up. I think the new drawing reads much stronger, and better portrays the space that would exist below the ground.
    My inexperience with figure drawing is haunting me, as I attempted to draw a man wearing a space suit at the job fair. I think my vision for the image is great, but I currently cannot translate my ideas into drawings. Will continue to rework the man, and then work up the courage to draw figures in the rest of my renderings.

    During sandstorms, when the sandshield covers Crater City, a virtual image of Mars' sky will project itself onto the underside, so that those living within the city can continue to feel as though they are exposed to the open air.

    Project presentation due tomorrow! Unfortunately I have run out of time to draw detailed figures in each of my scenes, so I used vector people to relay a sense of scale and story. Plan to go back in and draw people later, to better tell my story.
