Here we have the second batch of additional three pictures I created for Galactic Civilizations 3. These were made for some sort of a Tech-tree screen where you can choose special skills for your civilization. Said screen is divided into three key aspects (benevolent, malevolent, pragmatic) that represent a certain set of skills to choose from.
Skillscreen – ‘Benevolent’
This first image is used for the ‘Benevolent’ screen. It’s a light and bright setup to represent a more friendly approach with good intentions.
Skillscreen – ‘Malevolent’
This second image is used for the ‘Malevolent’ screen. It’s a dark, aggressive and very industrial influenced approach.
Skillscreen – ‘Pragmetic’
Here we needed something that felt different from the other two looks. So we took the approach of the ‘golden middle way’ and tried to incorporate a slight golden color scheme into it. It ultimately turned out better than I expected.
These projects were done with Vue and Photoshop. As usual a combination of multiple renders, manipulations and overpainting.
