Im trying to take the Road of bringing out the idea of Sc-fi and Fantasy mixed together as one, again another sketch, I should really start painting some of these Ideas

I think in terms of epicness, the second sketch is probably the best. It's also the most difficult, since it has so many visual elements.

The first seems kinda cool. I like the Watcher theme, but I'm not sure how epic it could be?

The sci-fi/fantasy mix, I think, is focused a little too much on one side of the army. It would be more dramatic to see an actual conflict between forces. I think it could work if the camera was lowered so you could see more of the city, and some more sky.

I like how you're exploring a lot of possible ideas. Keep it up :)

I like the image with the central figure best. I like the contrast of the single figure, against the vastness and granduer of the background.

Some of the others sketches could work, but I think you might want to introduce character(s) which the viewer can relate to - empathize with- ones which show fundamental human emotion (fear, anger, surprise etc.)

Starting to Develop The sketch of the Watcher, Seems to have a quality which my other Sketches Dont have, With this one im really trying to get an idea of where shapes are and where everything is put, First of many I fear

the composition feels a bit flat. i think what would really work best would be to change the angle of the camera so that its lower so in that sense, everything in the image will feel much more massive in scale

Yet another Idea everyone, with this one I was playing around with the idea of using the theme of Space and that of say the Deck of an aircraft Carrier, Again suggestions would be great and for those who have already posted Cheers it helps alot and good luck to with your Ideas
