This is the beginning of my new project.  The idea is to have a sort of floating island.  The base structure will resemble an oil platform but the architecture will be more futuristic.  The premise is much like the movie Water World.  It is a floating city that is completely self sustainable.

lighting-testing it out

Playing around with key light, and back lighting.  With this one I set a cross light very low to the ground at a high density to create that high contrast on the edge of the box.  I am attempting to add depth to the scene.

Anne McCaffrey illustrations by Michael Whelan

These are illustrations of different books that Michael Whelan did the cover art for.  

Michael Whelan- Fantasy artist

Michael Whelan is one of my favorite fantasy artists.  Most of his work is acrylic.  I was first introduced to his work through his illustrations of Anne McCaffrey's fantastic world of Pern. A world filled with dragons and peasants but placed in the future.  His depictions of the world I read about for years as a child, were absolutely amazing.

futuristic architectural influences

I wanted to mix the symmetry of romanesque architecture with a more futuristic feel.

logo ideas for graphics client

These are simple logo designs that I am working on for a potential client of mine.  I created a basic silhouette and then incorporated that image into different logo ideas.  This is all done in adobe photoshop and can still be worked with until a final product is created.
This is my maya city. I am going for a city/ garden scape..... it is just kind of expanding.
