Mega, Mega City One

To go along with the Lawmaster I made a while ago in Google Sketch-Up, I've built a section of Mega-City One. I've invested some time making vehicles and zooms and bits and pieces to help me frame my panels for a Judge Dredd strip by Lee Robson that I've blogged a little about before.

This is still a work in progress and I'll probably use different views than the one shown here, but that's the beauty of a simple 3D package, I make this once, then I can move things around for the best framing of each panel without having to reconstruct, redraw and redo all those little details again and again. Admittedly, I will to some extent, because I will only be using the exported images as under-lays for each of the panels.

Other resolutions:
700 x 370
1600 x 846

Wow that is really impressive - I have always liked the road scenes with all those odd vehicles.

Cooool! Is there a way to export the image larger than screen resolution? I've played around with this but haven't been able to find a way...

When you're in the export window, there should be a button near the file formats that says options - you can export there at screen dimensions (or larger I think), but ramp up the dpi to far higher than you need - the resultant jpeg will still be at 72dpi, but at larger pixel dimensions if that makes sense!

Very impressive work Kev. I can hear the rumble and smell the traffic fumes. This is really going to give you a solid foundation upon which to build your excellent artwork. I'm salivating in anticipation!

hi just found this amazing ART of mega city 1 you have created some amazing models from DREDD is this just for fun or are you planning in making this into an animation

Kev Levell said...

Hi Robb,

No plans to animate them, only ever made them as reference for my comic art.

Thanks for the kind words though.
