GREY DOMINION CONCEPT ART- CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
As well as not completing the short film this Christmas, I realised I haven’t told anyone I’ve changed the timescale. I’ve also committed a bit of a faux-pas, although you wouldn’t know about it unless you’ve read the short story, which I haven’t shared as I’ve been submitting it to magazines. So far it’s been rejected by Interzone and Asimov’s,
Anyway, in the first Trailer, I did sme model shots from Pierhead, Woodside Ferry and New Brighton. It was ok, but I have since come to realise that the ship flying down the River Mersey was NOT the Domeship known as MerseyDome, but actually a Grey Battlesaucer. “What’s the blinkin difference?” you may ask. Well, a Battlesaucer is a fighter/troopship combo and a Domeship is the Capital-city-sized vessel that makes up 999 of the fleet, with the Central Domeship three times as big.
Trouble is I haven’t actually designed a Domeship, apart from in my head It’s like a rugby ball, but just the top, the bottom being flat, with anti-gravity repulsers underneath. I’ll have to design it, or get someone to draw it. That’s what I need, my own Ralph McQuarrie-type concept artist who’ll draw it for me.
Yeah, there’s an idea- any takers??
