End of an Empire

Post by VenatorClassCruiser on Thu Feb 25, 2010 4:12 am

A small but detailed double-sided MOC with a bit of a backstory: one side of the MOC is of the insignia during the civilization's golden age, the other side centuries later, in ruin and decay.

The new side: tan stone and dark red details.

The old side: colors gone and pillars toppled to dust.

My favorite shot; shows some of both sides.

The ruined insignia.

The brand-new insignia
Comments and criticism welcome.

Points for the concept as Luke said.

I would suggest using macro focus on your camera PLUS the flash.

I like also how you haven't chosen a specific planet for this, but have left it to be a generic planet that could be anywhere, to show the vastness of the evil of the Empire.

The idea is cool but seems too simple for a guild member. I would recommend expanding this to 32x32 and then show one side with bustling street/market etc. and the other side in ash and ruin. Wink

This is not the Galactic Empire. I want to leave it open, for your imagination to go free. That's why it's in the 'Other Creations' section. It isn't SW.

@ Rook: Yeah, I might add on to it. I was thinking about putting a young boy on one side, admiring the carving, and then an old man on the other, mourning what is lost.

Now you're thinking. That you could fit on a 16x16 probably too.

Sounds artsy, but at least it has a message, unlike most modern art. Wink

I wouldn't use the flash, use lots of lamps.

If that don't work...get a big flash and point it up to a reflector (a lamp pretty much).

And use a smooth background in one colour, white or black normally works best but green/blue/orange are always nice for the eyes.

Nice detail Smile. For some reason it reminds me of one of those places where poems are deep, depressing, and
the audience snaps at the end.

Looks good, but too little. Make a couple more with some figs or something. Wink
