After showing how the art of the alien art evolved, here is an update on the sphere, that now is closing towards final.
The first concepts already had it as a blue glowing object with some pattern on it.
And it stayed that way for quite a while, whereas I tried around with making the pattern more readable.
That wasn’t quite readable still, mostly because of the light effects in the game. So here are some concepts that add a 3D shape, with more contrast, so that the sphere would work in dark as well as bright areas.
After choosing colors from there, I worked on the shape. I really liked the idea of having a glowing core inside.
Next time I’ll show how it looked in the game.
