Ever since I wrapped up the concept art package, I've been in a brainstorming frenzy for my next one. I've done a few miscellaneous stuff to pass time, but I haven't laid a brushstroke down for the next concept art package. As I mentioned in my previous post, I'll be tackling the sci-fi genre this time around.

There's a couple things I've decided on:

-I want to really try to use the colors I use the least a bit more (green and yellow come to mind). I've tried this before, so I guess I'll just be trying again.

-I've found my influences. This time around, it's going to be Ghost in the Shell, Children of Men, The Terminator series, and in a subtle way- Shadow of the Colossus. I'm sure I'll pick up some more on the way, but I have a good idea of what I want for the most part. As far as the setting goes, I'm thinking of a place that isn't just land. (The vagueness is intentional!)

-Two main "human" characters will be the focus of the main illustrations. There will be an opposing force or two.

-I love using swords in everything I do, but this will not be the case this time.

-More settings/environments. Some interiors, some exteriors.

If everything goes according to plan, this should be about 2-3 times more content heavy than the Fantasy one. I'm really excited about this one. :)
