environment design - thumbnail phase crit
Hi there! I have been inactive for quite a time, but hopefully, I am going to be hopping on the forum more frequently from now on. Kinda miss it
anyway to the core of this post. I 've made some thumbnails for environment drawing I am working on. It supposed to be some sort of alien dining hall.
Is there one of these that you like the most? Or are those even working for you? Let me know

I like environment design and I hope to experiment with it this 2019!
I really like C, it popped out the strongest, with the higher and larger contrast areas and the interest of the foreground (up and personal with your inhabitants ) who dwell in this space. Then it's D, B, A (in that order).
Looking forward to WIP.

C, A, D, B
C really makes you feel like you are in the dining hall, and gives a great sense of dimension to the aliens. My second favourite is D, which I think invites more of a "I'm spying on these creatures" sort of feel.
I really like the swirl in the rock up in the left corner of A, do you think that could be incorporated into C somehow?
@mia-clarke Thank you for the input! I really like hearing what sort of feel you have from those thumbnails:)
Yes, It could... C is basically seen from the opposite direction as A so I will play with that
okay made some basic drawing and value sketch. any thought appreciated!
Wow! It's so great to see this come to life! I really love the direction, and the swirl looks so good at the center bottom. I would not what these fellas to turn around!
I wonder, with all that light coming in from the top right, would it make sense for the overhang on the right to be quite a lot darker at the top? I feel like some added value differences in that section would make for a more interesting picture. What do you think?
Will the walls and overhangs be moist, or dripping?
@mia-clarke glad you like it!
hmmm yes that sounds right.. for now it kinda blends together. Thanks !
yes the will, they won't be dripping everywhere, but some moist is definitely in my mind! also there will be higher amount of plants and roots all over the place..
I guess I will call it done for now. Mainly because I have a tight deadline and I need to get everything done - and for the purpose of what it is for I think it is enough. If I will some time to revisit this I surely will.
But last questions. For presentation purposes. With tone or without?
@Jonas-Zavacky Love both, but the one with tone, I feel, matches the mood better. Great work!
@mia-clarke Thank you !! appreciate all the input you gave me throughout this!
