Well, thought I should make a return to the community with a bang!
Hopefully i'll get past the concept part this time.

Got a few ideas-one of them seems like a winner-but i'll have to put it down on paper.
I did some research on prize wining photographs-and most of them deal with people-or capturing the emotions of a single person-so I think that that is the direction I am going to go for. A hyper-realistic (or as hyper realistic as I can get) macro shot of a person experiencing a world changing event.
I want it to be one of those photos where just the name of the person conjours up images and feelings (Neil Armstrong on the moon, Hector Peterson's death, etc).

I dont think I'm going to go futuristic-but try to keep it as real as possible...or if i do go the 'futuristic' way-make it the near future. Nothing to fantastic...an image that captures the worlds attention about a 'hot topic'...cloning for instance, or the first man on Mars. One of those images that sets the world alite with wonder...or fear.

After much deliberation, drawing, shouting, general frustration, and the eventual sacrifice of 3 crickets to my pet bearded dragon (aptly named...Pyke), I have settled on an idea! And a rather spiffy one if i do say so myself.

Bloodstained, covered in the dirt of a batlefield, a lone samurai holds his friend...his ally...his brother, as the last whispers of life escape from his mouth.

Heavily inspired by one of my all time favorite movies, The Last Samurai, I want to create an image that mirrors the emotions felt at the end of that movie when Katsumoto asks Algren to help him kill himself.

The image will be a makro shot of the 'living' Samurai's face..the idea being to capture the 'spectacular beauty' of the honour of that act-to show the sadness, and pride at being there.

Concept art will be up tomorrow as soon as i've scanned all that needs scanning.

Excellent idea...Shot of the dying Samurai can be very strong in emotion...:bounce:

Thanks guys. I really want to show that a 'spectacular' scene can also be a quiet one, where the emotions speak louder than big bangs and flashy lights!

More refining of the concept to come....

On a side note, does anybody have any really good reference of Asian (preferably Japanese) males that I can use for modeling of the main Samurai?
