I'm just throwing in one of the statue designs here, and will be revisiting some of the others to try and get them feeling like they're coming from the same culture/world that created the others.
I've marked the ones that I particularly like with little white thingies.
In the end I'm going to be making a stonehenge type structure with five of these king/god statue heads floating above it, faces outward. The thing will probably be perched up on a mountain peak or something relatively inaccessible and high up since it's a heavily religious/sacred structure to the people who built it.
Thence, I'm thinking that I want to do the glowy tattoos and eyes in a color that's got a tight enough wavelength to carry long distances, which sorta outs the warmer colors. I'm not a huge fan of the purple, even though that would be the farthest carrying. Hmmm... I didn't try white did I? I'll give that one a whirl.
Anyways, I like the teal color a lot. If the culture were more egyptian-y I'd go for the black and yellow =)
Here's the white stuff. I'm definitely more interested in color, I think.
and here's a more detailed color render of one of the other statues:
Here are a few bits of additional concept sketches and a quick draft that I made on Maya for more of what the final bit should be like.
I would love any tips y'all might have for me to make the thing look... cooler and stuff.
