Jainai Jeffries has entered the Master and Servant 2D.

Challenge Page (http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/masterandservant/view_entries.php?challenger=7130)

Latest Update: Final Image: Azion training

Here's the leap; so here's the story:)

A warrior priest is out training his baby Azion. It's the little brat's first day and he's hoppin' all over the place; doing the little stunts with his wings and such. His kind is endangered, although they can grow up to 10 times the size of about the Warriors size. But the blue streamers he has shows that he'll be about the size of an Earth siberian tiger.

Master isn't annoyed or anything that the baby is goofing off. He's just letting him have a bit of fun before he starts the training of following orders and fighting.

The Warrior isn't human; his people have a kinda of a connection with the atmosphere that surrounds there person: The strength of the Warrior is shown through the similar color that can be found in the clouds. Actually his race generally couldn't effect that much of the atmosphere, but he's a born 'gifted'. And since he doesn't know how to control it completly, he still manages to show that much influence when he's happy (which really isn't that often at all)--which bring me to...

The feathers represent his status in the civilization: The red feathers mark his sorcerer level [the highest is 3] The blue feather (which is an Azion feather) marks him as part of the highest aerial army, and the 2 feathers on top mark him has the general[ as the red and black feather marks him as a 'Last').

'Last' are soilders whose been through a number of battles comming out as the only surviver.

The fact that he has no apparent scars, show to prove just how advanced his peoples body are to healing. And not to mention his own powers in healing.

This is just a scene of him in his free time; training the baby Azion he found :)

This has really been a learning experience for me; besides being the first piece I've ever done in painter, this is my first for reptiles, armor, and feathers. And my first time using only one layer. I'm pretty satisfied.

And really, thanks to everyone who commented. It really helped a lot :) Thank you.

I hope you all enjoyed the ride with your pieces!

This idea is based on the student and master concept.

story: The gifted student of war have just killed eigther his first kill or a first kill of someone who was stronger than him. The master was an observer and is showing how proud he is. I want it to look as if the child was just...filled with glee over having a success and of recieving praise; along with his appearance of a slave...or of being owned by the other...so he'll be in rags and a collar...or have a brand on his skin...or all.

this one is inanimate object worship/master.
the color is to give myself an idea of a kinda of background and skin tone. Im thinking a red rusty type theme. maybe small touches of blue to bring it out...

story: 2 or one "slave"(musician etc.) reaching out to the guitar. If its one person, he'll be hooked to the guaitar as a life line. As if its a drug/ neccessity. In the case of two people present, I was thinking of having the guitar's...tentacles[?] retract from one "slave"; leaving him mourning, and then reaching for the new one; who would have a desperate, longing, yet relieved look on his face...maybe some tears too, but not much.

This one is of oneself being the master.

(Again, the color is to give an idea of the type of theme I see with it. This one with a blue...in the hospital: the bedroom setting I see a more warm tone...but still with some blues...or just some cold tone...)

The "reality" version is clutching the mirror--well...the "mirror" him, and as a "look, i did it, arent you proud" look on his face; and to tell them apart(atmosphere wise) he'll have blue eyes...just a reality color to them, while the "mirror" version will have either white or just opposite color of "reality"'s eyes.

I cant really decide if he should be in a hospital or bedroom. His hands will be covered in blood in both...but the hospital setting will have him in a hostpital gown...with blood on the floor and mirror. But the bedroom will have a reflection of the woman's body in the reflection...and reflection of blood on the walls with only a little blood on the mirror.

And I think itl be more ...impacted, if The mirror version was kinda giving him "comfort" (and having maybe a sexual tone by having his hand on his upper thigh); yet still...grinning[?] straight ahead as if he sees you.

Personally, Im favoring this one over the others. But I would like to know what tohers might think (with all of the ideas)...so please share your thoughts :). Ill very much appreciant it.

This is the atart of the line up. Yeah...its abit different than some of the concept. Just a bit though. I would like to gain some input on other peoples thoughts. After Im dont with the pencil Im going to ink; but right now im not sure how many, little monsters I should put around the snake thing. I was thinking about 10-20; to show activity and a community type thing.

What do you think?

Like the perspective. Nice drawing. Looking good. :thumbsup:

Indeed, the perspective is very nicely executed. I think that you'd only need a couple more of the little monsters to convey the sense of community you want without over crowding the image. But draw in however many you want. What exactly are they doing to the snake thing? And what exactly is the main character's relationship to the little imps to the snake? I think the imps are his servants but whether or not they are also servants of the snake I can't tell. It looks really good so far; I want to see more!

2 things: the line art and the story--

1-I\\\'m going to screen tone it later, so thats why I detailed it. In coloring it, I\\\'m most likely going to paint (photoshop) over the details...with painted details, so they\\\'r mildly useless in the painting since. I originally scanned it at 600dpi.

2- The guy is...the new head god, he was never told about the snake like monsters and its\\\' little people tag alongs. This isn\\\'t about ruling, but about volunteer servitude. The snake like monster and the little people monsters (ill call them pemons from now on) actually killed the last one(a different plot there). But they really, REALLY like this new one; so they\\\'ll protect him and do what he wants...most of the time- he doesn\\\'t want them actually, so he haven\\\'t ...\\\'binded\\\' them to himself. Plus, they rather like having their own mind- hence they choose wheather or not to go through with an order of his. But sometimes they\\\'ll help even if he doesn\\\'t want them to: if it\\\'s his life at stake, they\\\'ll do anything. Furthermore, It\\\'s not fully known why they follow him...

He doesn\\\'t care if they\\\'re there or not, but its a rare accurence that he\\\'ll even ask for help...well, hint at anyway. He as a lot of pride.

The snake like thing is extremly intelligent(I wanted to show some kind of personality in them...so one in the back as an eye patch on)and they actually have some telepathic link with him(which he doesn\\\'t understand and have yet to control it) so they skim over his mind when he\\\'s in trouble to see if he needs them; which he\\\'ll never admit to directly. They only skim it though, cause as ive said before, they really like him; so out of respect, they dont go all the way in.

This scene is after a fight he\\\'s been in; his \\\"minions\\\" helped him, even thought he truely didnt need it, and he\\\'s frustrated by it. They knew he didn\\\'t need them; they did it to annoy him.

Let me know if you would like some more specifics...or if anything isn\\\'t clear to you. Hopefully I haven\\\'t went to deep in this already.

Please share you thoughts.

yeah, i made a new line art. its in painter 8 so that\'s as much of a line art I could get. The other line art...I just lost interest in coloring it, for now anyway. So i popped this one out ...Tuesday? I think i have a concept of it somewhere...

And its my first time using painter, so itll be very educational to work on:)

changed the shoulder plate. I decided it looked stupid, as in he wouldn't be able to move his head from side to side, so I painted over it. I think it looks better, what do you think? Also added that necklace, I wanted some ornament type thing on him...not too much and not too little. I think this'll do. Added the reflection of the sky in the helmet. can ya tell? Please leave any comments :)

I think you should work on proportion of arms vs. thorax that is to tight.

thanks to Pejot, I fixed his right arm. Seems like it would have been one of those things i wouldn't have saw until a while AFTER i said i was done. It was abit too big and...in the way it was it was...yeah, well you see it dont ya? It looks better with the change to me. :) It fits his body more.

Now I'm off to being late to class. Please comment :)

I wanted them to match the dragon and overall style; not real real...but a bit close. Ya dig?

I might add some wing streamers comming from the base at the back. Then onto final coloring.

Yeah....I figured defining the clouds more would be final coloring; Considering it never takes that long.
All thoughts please :)

The story: A...warrior/socerer is summoning his pet baby...dragon, bird, snake, creature. He's in training, and of course...still immature. So he's bouncing about abit...not really flying...more of a glide bounce thing. I wanted to streamers to be blue...like the loong blue feather in the warriors helmet. That feather is what the baby will have when he's near adulthood. So he doesn't have the strips on it yet:)

Ima post another one real soon.

Added a small collar. He's a baby so an overly big one would be too much I think. Besides, the warrior is a KIND master; he cares for the comfort of his pet.

I'm adoring it. What do you think? Just wanna get some bit of feedback before I send it for the final. Might do a bit more touch up on some places. But other than that...i say its about done:)

Comments? anyone?

Hello Jainai,

this looks very great so far! You've got nice details here, and I especially like the design of his clothes and the little bird-lizard-creature.
There are, however, still a few things I'd work on:

1) the anatomy:
his upper part of the body looks too slender compared to his quite husky arms. I'd make his chest a bit wider.
When I saw his face, I thought at first sight it was a woman, but looking at the body, I know it's a man. I think you should change his lips a bit, they're too feminine. I love andrognyne looking boys, but he rather looks effeminate ^^;

2) the colours
They altogether still look a bit dull, the sky contributes to that. Bring a bit more colours into it! :) Make it more vibrant. Maybe add some reddish or blueish shades, the same ones you've got in the foreground, to the sky. This will also help to bring the both parts better together.

The left is the newest one. The neck...was too big, so it made everything look weird. I fixed it so that it fit his body more. And i followed Maidith's advise on putting color in the background; and I do believe the neck fix made up for the chest looking big...and the lips? That's just the way he looks, to me anyway. But then again...he's not human--with that, i didnt want to make it so obvious. But with the ears looking...the way they do...one could catch a hint:) hopefully. Do you?

The final showdown so to speak. I changed the shadowing and size of the right shoulder. Handed more hair strands where i thought needed. and changed the side burns....it was too high up or something--basically it looked wrong so i changed it. So what do you think? Done? And again, thanks to all for the comments:)

I did a little something something, and so the left is the outcome of that. I think it has a more....pop now. What do you say?
