squibbit, thanks for finding me! good to see you here
The cloud piece is still being worked on (however slow) and the link is under my signature... I would definitely appreciate some feedback and critiques if you ever find the time!


Jezz, good to see you as well! Is this idea too cliche?? should I come up with a few more concepts? Honestly, I'd much rather be told now than work on it for a long time and realize it's pretty mundane... let me know!


Here's just a little more detailingo n the figure, than the background is an explosive firey ground with an 'after the storm' sky. Let me know if I should approach some unique ideas

Alright, real excited about another challenge! I really believe these opportunities are the things that will continue to breed generations of amazing new talents and community and create awesome competition in the entertainment/visual world which will lead to quite an interesting future I'm sure.
I hope all those I watched last challenge have the time to do it again this time around. It comes at quite a busy time of the year for school for me, but I'm still going to take part as the advice from you guys is invaluable.


Alright, I'm not sure if my concept is idealy fitting or not... i don't know if it's being creative or not following the rules?! Anyway, my idea leans probably more towards the 'slave' extremity of 'servant.' It's more abstract in it's visual nature than I normally focus on, but it's dealing with man/womens kinda fight between the apposing, polar-opposite 'forces' in the unseen immortal world on the subject on who to follow and how it relates/fights with your own physical being, your presence in this mortal world.

So the idea is a man strung in the air being pulled in opposing directions: up and down to represent the common views of the spiritual world, with, of course, his own body being the middle ground
The background is already a challenge for me. I was thinking of placing him slightly elevated above an actual landscape.. a field on fire against a sort of cumulous 'after the storm' cloud in the sky
but here's the pose after playing around with a few different ideas

Hey Steve, good to see you back for another crack. I remember doing a similar sketch back in high school... a man suspended and pulled in different directions by strands. At the time I was spreading myself a little thin. Anyway looking forward to seeing this progress and hopefully finished!!! - Get cracking :bounce:

Your cloud piece is looking amazing... and I think this piece is going to be great...just don't get caught up in the clouds again xD ...jk. Anyways, I think it's original because I haven't really seen anyone doing something like it for this competition, and yet I think it is something that everyone can relate to. Ultimately it is you who has to decide if it's creative enough for yourself...in other words are you satisfied with the concept?. ...And whatever you decide, good luck! :)

Hi there Steve!!Nice to see you around again!!!Really loved the way you think things out!!!
I garee with butterflyiris ,that it's you that gotta like your concept!I like your concept and it seems that it is goins to be really nice.
But indeed maybe it could help you if you throw some more roughs and thumb's maybe,just quicly like that,without worrying for the technique,just searching and throwing,till you got that thrill you're looking for.
Anyway all the luck and fun to you Steve!!!
