Started this in Mirage doing the line art. I was going to paint it there as well but opted for PSCS - haven't gotten into Painter yet. Some ref was used for the girl's pose and for the lighting. The overall theme is to feel like pulp science fiction, 'Amazing Stories' art.

The line art:
Roughed colors on background:
Girl rough colors:
Cowboy rough colors:
And with the line:
I'm toying with the idea of comping in some 3D of the space crafts that I modeled Lightwave 3D 7.5, not sure about that yet:
The girl has a previous dress design that I wasn't happy with:
and a render of the craft model:
Wow I love your work! (And changing the girl's outfit was the right decision, btw..) It looks great. Eager to see how it all turns out
I'm digging it so far the line art is great! I am working on a series similar to yours I call it bridging the gap where old meets new. I have a couple of things being that I'm a SCIFI buff big time.
I think the new outfit for the girl takes away from the feeling. The whole TEXARKANA feel cowboys and indians look I like the first one.
Also the idea of 3D objects may seam a bit much the lineart method is way more interesting!!
And last but not least, maybe try a single hue with values to give it that added push to the style. You know the SIN CITY look only out west. Like old cowboy movies just a thought.... But it looks killer man keep it up!
softocean: Thanks. I appreciate your feedback on the ship design. I guess I want lean toward more of a 50s' design.
AmontilladoAg: Thanks for the encouragement!
Mishra: All good suggestions. So you seem to like the "cheerleader" type of costuming for the girl - interesting, I'll have to consider that. Good call on the lineart vs. the 3D crafts. The single hue with values approach, I assume you are talking about the painting technique - I'd like to hear more of your thoughts on this, perhaps a link to an example of what you are thinking. Thanks.
anytime!! I copied your image and made a change I hope you dont mind its to show you what I was refering to. I love this piece and it will turn out great.
You got it bro! Anytime, it gives it that old school look to it. and being that the girl is in the forground it hit me like a ton of bricks. Good luck with this one I cant wait to see what you do!
