Shmup Background Mockup – Second Draft

Further fleshed out the main structures as well as playing with some textures indicating some manner of corrosion.  The ‘crane’ in the second shot is something I really like and I think I was channeling a little Chris Foss in the process.  I’ve also changed around the hues of the background layers several times to make the scene more readable without increasing the number of colours used in the palette.

Overall I think this phase is coming to a close and I need to determine how ‘dirty’ I want it to feel.  I’m going to break up some of the banding in the highlights a little more and experiment with adding greebles to provide more landmarks for the eye.  Things like cable and hose bundles to add a little improvisation to these deliberate feeling slabs.
