The Summer Night: Martian Home Ideations
Here are some initial designs for Martian homes. I want them to look very organic since the Martians are supposed to be the antithesis of man (I'm thinking of using brutalist architecture for design cues on humans to contrast the loose organic forms of the Martians...hopefully it makes for good visual contrast.) Some of these homes hang on cliff sides, some appear to grow like plants, and some sit on the ground in the traditional fashion.
I've found that I only have time for some quick doodles in my sketchbook at lunch once in a while and weekends. That should still be enough time to eek out a chapter illustration periodically, but they will probably come at an even slower pace. No matter what though, I love working on this stuff!
