Smoking In Space by reversenorm Smoking In Space by reversenorm
Yeah well it doesn't make sense to smoke in the first place yet many people do it now so why will they stop. This whole image was brought on by me picking up the manga Planetes (yes es) I was just really enjoying the way the interior scenes were designed, and once I started I couldn't help but make the person sitting there Fee. Anyway overall just having fun with comic tones.

PLANETES (or Planet ES as my friend called it) was a great manga and anime and you really captured the "Dirty Space" of the show. As someone who works in the industry I could so totally see space being much like shown in the show and in your work here. Well done!

Great. Really captures Fee's character.

Okay, pluses are that I like Planetes manga very very much, and I'm glad you made one like this.

criticisms: (Assuming that the scene is in Zero-G or in centrifuge like on the Jupiter-system spacecraft.)
- Loose items would be floating. Such as the empty space suit to the right of Fee, Fee herself, and that cable bundle and extra cords in the top of the picture.
- I'm also thinking "simpler is better." Maybe not so much dinginess and loose cords. A spacecraft, even an almost-junk one, has to be kept in relatively good living condition to avoid havoc in emergency situations.

I didn't want to do floating, really the dynamic needed to have a slouching figure, so I cheated. I do agree about cleaning it up a bit but some of the chaotic nature seeped in because I was also looking at the artwork of Jeoff Darro (the matrix key concept artist).

Ah, well with the Darro switch on, I can see the resemblance. I knew there was something familiar about the feel in this, just couldn't put my finger on it.

I love how you use these comic tones. Well done! :)
reversenorm Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2008
Thanks, It's weird doing them on a computer. I didn't want to have them fade (like % of opacity) because when you use real tones it's really hard to do that, you tend to get fully there or not at all, so I spent a lot of time making sure I had a realistic fade even though I used a computer.

La trama es impresionante, le da un aspecto muy peculiar y atractivo. Muy oscuro y opresivo también. Los detalles es otro de los puntos fuertes. Aunque tal vez esta genial estética lograda con el entorno y la trama vendría mejor a un estilo de dibujo europeo a la hora de realizar los personajes (está claro que cada cual tiene su estilo). Enhorabuena.
