AVP Online Concepts by JenZee AVP Online Concepts by JenZee
//Edit 2: LOL our group got served during the presentation. Oh well... we still think it'd be a good idea :D. We're thinking about writing up a written proposal just for the fun of it. Just think BF42 + UT + AVP2 + Shadowbane :D.

The top two took about an hour/hour and a half. I've never done environmentals at all before, so this was a huge learning experience. Trial by fire really. You can tell I learned a lot between the first and second painting (the predator one was done first, the alien one second) haha.

These were done for a school project. Our group is designing an Alien versus Predator MMORPG/MMOFPS. I mean I can't believe this hasn't actually been done before. I should put up our entire pitch sometime, for others who are huge fans of the old AVP games :D. I promise you guys would like it (though the game pro's didn't!!!!) !!! But yeah. This is of course, nothing official.

I had about a day to come up with this stuff, so nothing excessively awesome I think. I also am such a environmental/background-design noob. I've always avoided it, knowing that I'd have to do it sooner or later to be a concept artist, so it's nice that I kind of got forced into it. Now I'm burgeoning with ideas!

Anyway.hope you guys enjoy, thanks for looking!

Painter 7.0/Photoshop post processing (I need to lrn2photoshop).

1st painting is a typical Alien bunker corridor
2nd painting is a typical Predator bunker corridor

I see that most of your work/or all after this are in Photoshop, how did you navigate so quickly to PS. I'm just asking cause I'm trying to go from Sai to PS. I just can't seem to get the softness/blending from PS that I get from Sai. If you have any tips or links that'd be really great. Your work is phenomenal.

Geee, for your first time doing environments, these look amazing! I'd think that you were doing this for a long time already.

jamga Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2007
impressive work on this one, love this colors on the alien background (even if i will see it more green than it is), hope to see more llike that in the futur!
MrFacehug Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2007
I bow to you, oh god of environments! That sounds retarted, but whatever. Exellent work man! I absolutely LOVE the alien hive at the top. And the skulls hanging in the roof of the pred ship is looks great. I could actually imagine an alien running up there, looking at the pred. :XD: Gotta +fav this.

crappers....i am SO the last-man-to-comment!!
this rocks very highly,boo. great design sense and brave color schemes too! since you were blocking things in, it feels open and powerful, and un forced. its a great first effort, and you have officially broke new ground here....
JenZee Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2006  Professional Digital Artist

waydre Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2006  Professional Filmographer
anything for them comfy hugs of yers!!!!!
MeliHitchcock Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2006  Professional Digital Artist

You know, I'm honestly shocked that there hasn't been an alien vs Predator MMORPG either. But hey that's good news to look forward to! :D Nice concept work for the hive and ship locations. :)
Oniphoenix Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2006
I really like the atmosphere on both halves.
kathy100 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2006
Good God, these are so AMAZING O_O! I can't believe how cool your backgrounds are T_T. So detailed, so much atmosphere and intensity *dies*

Must fave!!! :heart:
MajorasMasks Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2006  Professional Artisan Crafter
Cool! I'm a huge Alien fan (I don't really like Predator, though...) ^^
TheOnlyWarman Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2006  Professional General Artist
hey awesome idea better if mmotps though and you see your charcter or even play as either alien or predator, oh and now that i have my summer break I'm free so if you want any help, 3d in game models, levels etc don't hesitate to ring me up we could actually make it unofficial till u present it again after pitching it up a bit, i got use sinking my teeth into somthing. now about the piece well i'll try to think of something clever to say once my mouth closes and i wipe the drool off the floor
xray360 Featured By Owner May 31, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great work on these. Before I read the discription I really couldn't make out what the top one was. I think it lacks depth and make it look like an abstract. Nice colors in it though. The bottom one is great. No critiques on that.
LockeTyranus Featured By Owner May 31, 2006
This is excellent, I think it will do well in the proposal. I wonder why now that a MMO hasn't been done based on AvP. Good job and color choices. :D
IsamuDyson Featured By Owner May 31, 2006
when did you need to lrn2photoshop?

wouldn't a nice jungle setting fit predator?
only reason cause i just finished watching the first predator movie btw hehehe
FlolovesGIR Featured By Owner May 31, 2006
ohhh, i like the red in the top corner of the predator pic.... it helps tie the two pics together when posted like this.
nightstrobe Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
wow. i abosolutley love it,id so buy that game.
the predator side reminds me of a concept drawing i did for the bridge of a interstellar ship im working on
(mostly open and alot of steel beams,ya know that whole industrial/military look)
mordormaster277 Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
What an interesting idea. AVP seems like the perfect candidate for MMORPG treatment.
Moody, atmospheric, and very professional looking. :) I'd say they fit the characters and the universe perfectly. :+fav:
deemonproductions Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Professional
wowee. and this is just a school peoject? goh leeee... it sure looks pro level. :)
ilsung Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Student Filmographer
awesome color work, i love how fluid it is!
Doddle-Bug Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Student Traditional Artist
Wow this is so cool! I really like the alien one you blend the colors so well and the texture of it is just brilliant, The predator one is smooth and crisp. the your adding the characters is very good they give you an idea without being too much the center of attention I really like that. ^__^
Dragonword Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
Its a shame that is hasn't been done before. Good luck with the project. :D Love your deviation. :clap:
Tifasjk Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
haha sorry for double posting we're not the same age XD, I think someone with a name similar to yours is the same age as me and really good also XD, hah asorry i'm an idiot XD
Tifasjk Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
these look great, I wish i i hadyour skills of being told to do something that i've never done before and within an hour or so coming up with this!, di dyou reference anything at all?, these really are very good!, I suck at backgrounds and perspective and so on, I still have loads to learn XD, you're so far ahead of me and we're the same age, it's very inspiring though, great stuff!
Pepius Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
Well, that looks really cool! :thumbsup:

If only, I think you should put a bit more emphasis in the organic/icky style of the aliens-modified landscapes :)
Kanuka76 Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Fantastic. I really like this two species and the films: Alien, Aliens, Predator and Aliens Vs Predator. The other aren't at the same level (IMHO). Very good work, compliments :D
Fused0001 Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
I think it looks pretty good. you should expand on these.
Nanto Featured By Owner May 30, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really good job my friend. Hope everything goes well with the game and all.
Im an old AvP fan and I would surly love and mmofps of the old game.

Beautiful work as always. :) Keep it up my friend.
xhadowlx Featured By Owner May 30, 2006

lu-da-chris Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
do you get to be a queen aliean? cuz id wanna be a queen alien...
eisu Featured By Owner May 30, 2006
Ooh, ooh, I'm a fan of aliens and predators and several aliens vs predators games though I think the movie is a huge disappointment! i would love to play an MMOG based on AVP. "Class: Human, Aliens, Predators" "Job: Seeker, Worker, Warrior, Hunter" dude, that's just awesome!

I LOVE the background on the top one. It looks awesome. Geez, your stuff humbles me to no end.
Midnight-Wing Featured By Owner May 29, 2006
Ooh pretty! I'm surprised that they haven't made an AVP MMORPG game yet either! :o Don't stress too much. :)
