Decided I might like it better if I did a vertical composition. I like being able to see his full body sprawled out. Definitely leaning towards this. Will have to see what I can do about balancing things with some architecture or props. Also realized at this point that it could be read the other way around, that the servant died for his master... I kind of think that ambiguity might be interesting... but I'm considering suiting him up in full samurai armor, which would make it more obvious that he was the master, and also tell a little bit more story; maybe he's just come back from a battle, staggered in through the open door... I dunno yet. =P

Sat down and started doodling with random shapes and colors until figures started appearing.. didn't really have anything specific in mind yet... I did kind of have a feeling I wanted the master/servant thing to be more of a loyal or loving relationship. I guess I was thinking with this something along the lines of a faerie queen or goddess and one of her dutiful maidservants kneeling in front of her... Scrapped pretty quickly, but it was nice for a warmup to get things flowing.

Did this one right after, still sticking with the loyal servant idea. I thought a feudal Japanese example would fit pretty well. Initially it was a student kneeling over his dead sensei or something, but somehow it turned into a woman... X) There's a dropped tray with a tea set in the background to indicate that she was the servant carrying it and suddenly saw her master lying on the floor

Cool concepts, sir. I think adding the samurai armour might be too much..unless it was taking place outdoor while there's an ongoing battle surrounding them! That'd roooockkk! But, yeah. I think having the master dressed in his regular attire would be just fine. Their emotions will define their character. :D :bowdown:

SAMURAI ! COOL ! I like your colour palette. Very mood lit. putting armour on him would also make him look cool.
Great job !
