Watch the 2005 Steven Spielberg remake. The movie is different from the book.

Correction: the tripods in War of the Worlds came out of cylinders shot from mars.

That aside, very nice pixel work.

One of the worst book-to-movie adaptations in recent years, and that's saying something : x
This piece is pretty cool though.

Awesome improvement in your level, I really want to see your next piece.

Thanks, I'll take those edits into consideration.

Nice job. You could work more on your colors though, to get something more contrasted.

Here's a quick edit based on on the step you posted on the forum (which was definitly better imo) :

THAT LOOKS AWSOME!!!

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/9/2011 08:46

Really well done. I love how the civilians have their cellphones out taking pictures of the thing. :P


user
Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 4/8/2011 15:57

I looked at a few models of the tripod itself to get an idea of the tripod's anatomy, but otherwise no.

Any reference used?

elend (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/8/2011 13:42

I love it's simplicity in techinque and content. Very nice. The cell phone photographers are a funny touch, too. :D

This is based off the recent movie. The actual aliens ride down into the ground via a capsule, there they activate the pre-buried tripods.


user
Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/8/2011 10:41

tiny, non-art point : the tripods in the book are aliens and activate soon after striking the earth, no million years of being buried?


user
Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 4/8/2011 08:48

Thank you! Yeah, haha, that's a bit of a plot hole I think. Never noticed.


user
Excalibur (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/8/2011 08:34

This one is sweet! I'll probably vote for you hehe.


user
dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/8/2011 06:46

Awesome piece indeed.

I never understood that part with the cameras still being on in the movie. Everything else in that part was shut down electrically (watches, cars, etc). Weird.


user
KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/8/2011 04:28

Looks fenominal, so takes me back to the movie. Great job...


user
Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 4/8/2011 02:25

 This gets my vote, too. And not just because I dig tripods in general :)


user
Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/8/2011 02:18

looks soooo good :-D


user
Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/8/2011 00:52

Nice Scene! 


user
Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/8/2011 00:41

This is really cool. I love the mood and the tripod, and yeah, the people with the cell phones is a great touch. Not sure the noise on the building on the right really works, though, and the people are banded in some places, but nice job otherwise!


user
wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/8/2011 00:32

 Great scene you Got My vote :D
