stretchthompson:👌 nice work man! Was there any reason they decided to go more in this direction for the city than the more HR Giger inspired juggernaut design?

messingart: @stretchthompson we explored lots of ideas but settled on a more hellenistic approach

messingart Alien - Early cathedral study. Ridley wanted to pursue monumental spire structures. This was later developed into a more totemic and simplified form language.

jupiterthoidingjam: For concept stages do you sometimes do camera projection just to have a feel of the environment ?? Just curious .awesome work.

messingart:@jupiterthoidingjam thanks. ill use projections if I am adding more implied detail to a 3d concept for presentation

mobedda: Looks incredible! I like this direction a lot! I honestly felt ambiguous about the city...i know it was originaly Inspired by mountains of madness but it ended up feeling greek'ish? Would be awesome to see more of the process:) thanks for sharing.

messingart:@mobedda yes it become hellenic with some german post war influences

kaitkybar: Beautiful. But I still don't get it why he didn't use space jockey/Giger design language. Copyright issues?

messingart: @kaitkybar aesthetic choice
