Sudden Encampment by Sayanim Sudden Encampment by Sayanim
UPDATE2:
Finalized the image - adding some aftificial lights and changed the AA gun's design on left. Design of the MONGA also altered. I wanted it to feel like "the ship just emerged from beneath the clouds and still trying to stabilize itself." I'm not sure if I achieved that feel yet tho. Maybe I should add some clouds dispersing away from the ship more. Hmm.....comments welcome :D

UPDATE:
I added some lighting moods and a little bit color. But this drawing is still primarily in grey-scale.

STORY:
The Fleet, seeking to for a legendary battle cruiser MONGA, suddenly stumbles upon it as it bursts out of the clouds at night.

However, before the Fleet could validate this ship's identity, it must assume the worst. The main ship, Shekhinah, finds herself suddenly training all their main guns on the mysterious ship. Alert fighters are simultaneously launched and gives hostile challenge to the now encircled MONGA.

Wow, I love the feel of the atmosphere and the tension this piece makes. I also really like the lighting details on the small (relatively) gun on the bottom left of the panel.

My only suggestion would be to make a few more shadow gradients for the "Monga" I know you have that atmospheric perspective going on, but i think it would benefit from maybe one or two more layers of shadows on it. Right now it seems a little flat.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

thank you for your input! I'll might just take your suggestion a try, and explore how it would feel if I add more shadow layers to the Monga ship. Thank you for loving the atmosphere feel and lighting details - I liked them too. I do wonder whether or not the surrounding foreground stuff (big cannon for example) is too dark and needs more lighting...again THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!

thanks a lot Setzuo-san! now that you mentioned the BIG GUN's sizes, i think if i were to fix this painting, the AA turret probably should be closer. good eyes!

I was thinking, since the MONGA is supposed to be so mysterious, that perhaps some eerie lighting colors, or a visible shield aura would help give it that separation. Work with the fog, though, that part is irreplaceable! I'd love to see the next stage!

I love the perspective, atmospheric effects and the warm orange lighting. I also love the "leviathan in the mist" sense of scale!

Fantastic work! I'd love to attend one of your mechanical design classes... please keep us informed. One more thing - I'd love to see the MONGA in its full glory!
