Caleb by rubendevela
Caleb
Dresses for a boardroom, even when on the bridge.

This was supposed to just be a character design, but Val wrote her notes, gossip and suspicions about him all over it! 
She'll probably be featured in the next character profile.

Here's a bigger view of his boat :D <da:thumb id="483629222">
Yeah, the eyelid is intentional

IASC Torpedo boat by rubendevela
IASC Torpedo boat
"Dear IASC stockholders: Despite your concerns on the visibility of our fleet's current striking colors, please consider that our main function is deterrence. We WANT to be seen! Please also consider that the yellow on black striping helps reinforce our branding."

Concept for a risk-averse torpedo boat. The whole front section is a huge drone that detaches and does all the fighting, while the bridge hangs back and watches.

The sketch here shows the separation of the front module from the control rubendevela.deviantart.com/art…

Took me a whole night to get from the quick doodley sketch to this painted-over 3d render. :3 I'd have added more textures and little details... But I'm getting sleepy

Step Beach by rubendevela
Step Beach
Speedpainted location concept :3

The "Step Beach" is a huge floating wave breaker in a long parabolic arch. A horizontal dam against the pacific's "hundred year wave", it rises to about 30 meters. The lower steps were once used as wave energy collectors but are now mostly clogged up with sediments and life.

The steps are used as a causeway and common market area, with temporary shops and food stalls, but the occasional "barnacle house" is built to withstand the seasonal storms that everyone else packs up and leaves for.

Getting my head around the outdoor locations, I already have a clear idea on the indoor locations rubendevela.deviantart.com/art…

Ungoliant and Melkor by rubendevela
Ungoliant and Melkor
Edit, 2014: Uh so apparently Peter Jackson liked this old painting of Ungoliant well enough, that it will be included on the dvd/bluray of the behind the scenes release for The Hobbit 2! 0_0

This redone version with slightly adjusted lighting will appear in the mini-documentary about Ungoliant, Shelob, and the other spider monsters from the lore!



Ungoliant and Melkor/Morgoth contesting ultimate power

Edit: Added bristly spider hair and adjusted the shading.

it's a gif of old OLD OLD OLD OLD works, some dating to the 20th century! Ugh. Also, just looking at it makes me avert my eyes and think of other things, so I haven't changed it in years.
Yeah, I suck at this sort of thing.
