So here is my work in progress for the Blender World Cup. My piece is called “Civilian Monolith Encounter”. Since the topic of this challenge is about a very special moment in time, I wanted to incorporate something that represents a vastly important turning point. And what better way to illustrate this point in time with the Monolith from “2001: A space odyssey”.
Instead of discovering the monolith on the Moon or on Jupiter, I decided to play on the plot a little and place the monolith on a highway overpass (in the not to far future?). I began creating concept sketches of what I wanted to include in the scene.
So I decided to include a rather large truck in the scene with the truck driver getting out of his vehicle to inspect the object. Here is a loose detailed view of the front profile of the truck
This is a more detailed concept sketch of the scene layout and the drivers profiles. And at the bottom, there is a quick thumbnail of what I want to go in the background
And this last concept sketch is further detail into the background. Super large overpass structures are going to play a key roll in this image in the scene that it will be “focusing” the viewers attention to the materials in the foreground via straight lines.
More wip clippings later!
