This concept art representation of a city environment is actually the main city of Alatia, where we live. Hi, this is Jara Mabey telling you about my homeworld, also called Alatia, and my city. It is a subterranean city. I had to do this project for my survival training so I might as well share my findings with you.
Yes, we live underground in Alatia. I have not been to the surface, but no young one, under 20 can do so. You need 6 years of training and I am in my 4th, not enough. It is barren, but full of danger, both alive and no so much! And you need a lot of knowledge for survival there.
Mr. Vargas, which some say is a human (but I don’t belive it), started the sketches in traditional form, with pencil and paper. At lease that is what we are told and taught in Alatia. If you asked me, I would imagine that you had to be an Alatian Engineer for that, but hey!
He then scanned those sketches (multiple ones) and started working on Photoshop – I don’t know what that is, but seems to be a drawing tool or something. Later the file was transfered to the iPad and Procreate was used, again, no idea what are those. But I read this on a historical document at school: “The iPad, and for that matter the Surface and Android tablets have made mobility impressive. Very affordable for professional artists.” What are those? I wonder. It continues; “But most still have to be used with proprietary software. Open source is still not very well supported, and the iPad cannot even run Krita, our current main workhorse!” I wonder who wrote that quote. But, never mind.
The document contines with “But the fact that we can connect the iPad now to the Mac” That sounds like a robot or machine! “…and use it as a Cintiq, which we have in the studio, is an amazing technology. It means that now we have a mobile studio and a static studio where the workflow is not interrupted.” What is that about a studio? Anyone knows? Oh, well.
