These are first scetches of "fallen Ikarus". Humanity was inspired by the technical progress and thought, they
reached divine heights. They didn't understand, how it led to their destruction of the bases of existence. They fell down. The feather of an angel, Ikarus is looking at shows another way to the heavens, much easier and supreme.
That's it. :)

The idea of using metal wings that fails because the feather/birds are much better at flying might work better if you see some birds circling around him, indicating they can fly but he with all his technological stuff can't :)

The idea of this picture is not that human can't fly as a bird.
Ikar is personification of all humanity that has considered itself
the god and has been punished for it.
The feather of an angel shows another way. :)

Great Idea. I thinked about Ikarus (but flying) at start of challenge but I left it. And I did right. Your point of view is much better. Good luck! and keep composition is perfect.

I like this idea. I also like the cracks in the ground. They give a feeling of the force of the impact.
I'm interested to see the background as the image progresses.

Good interpretation of the icarus myth. Perhaps your perspective is a bit strong, but it's a choice.

I prefer when we see the scene from the top


Good luck ! You took a good start I think

Hope - it's all what we have.

А ты подбородок на асфальт положи, тогда она вывернется как тебе надо. И подними её выше, а то создаётся очучение что она вот вот отвалится вместе снадеждой на будущее. :)

Nice start,
the concept remind me a failed mechanic implantation. (the guy is not flying and background is sinister)
I Like the dark mood of this picture too.

Good luck dude :)

Squibbit
04-03-2004, 02:28 PM
looks good , maybe bigger feathers ?

another idea , used but still ... how about
fans for the wing joints ? the feathers would be
more for show then and not for real use , unless
maybe for silent gliding ...

Fantastic idea! Birds flying around him would be cool, exept that they would make the meaning of Your work obvious. The single feather makes the view think about the meaning more... it renders the image more symbolic. Just my opinion, nevermind :) Keep up the great work :thumbsup:

:) Really really great work...

I love the atmosphere of the early sketches and the way the shafts of light work within the composition.

I look forward to seeing how your elements all come together. The pose of the guy is really nice...you really feel the wings are connected to his body

I really can't add anything useful at the moment...just too good:applause:

Hi!

I like your concept, it's a nice way to treat this Icarus.
Your composition is very interesting, about the dynamical aspect who make me feel close to the character. The zoom is almost better than the full image...it gives a stronger dramatic dimension to your theme, and perspective is impressive..

Great work.

regards.
