Middle East 2050 WIP 2/10/14

The aim of this september project was to create a series of 4 concept art illustrations that show cased a sci fi futuristic Middle East using different inside and outdoor scenarios from a positive angle rather then a political/war view. I choose this part of the world so I could challenge my limited knowledge of the culture and how effectivity I can incorporate elements of sci fi while still retaining the feeling of the regions in the Middle East like Oman Iran and Qatar. 

This is a sample of the WIP 

initial sketching, ideas





Refining sketches working out shadows and lighting 



Character and mecha design sketches 





 Colour studies working out the best scheme for each  atmosphere also altering my original ideas. 











screenshots of selected parts of the WIP of the final four pieces.










Until next post LATERS :)

Middle East 2050


Hello everyone here is the finished illustrations for the Middle East 2050 project I was teasing about in blog posts.

The aim of this month long project was to create a series of 4 concept art illustrations that show cased a sci fi futuristic Middle East using different inside and outdoor scenarios from a positive angle rather then a political/war view. I choose this part of the world so I could challenge my limited knowledge of the culture and how effectivity I can incorporate elements of sci fi while still retaining the feeling of the regions in the Middle East like Oman Iran and Qatar. 

This project used a lot of different digital painting techniques, including photo manipulation to achieve a better idea of realism (example being the cityscape). I even went as far as writing in Arabic to make it more authentic.






Until next Post Laters
