I do not know that it, but it will be exact something grandiose!

Good luck !

It is the road to Hell. Naked sinners will creep to the Hell door. Along the road will line up the violia players, who will playing the Requiem for sinners, something in that line...:hmm:

Nice idea.

For so far I can see you could make the camera angle a bit more dramatic, and make the gate larger and more frightening. Good luck. :)

I like the idea. Maybe if you brought the horizon down some, that would make the gates much taller (more extreme angle so more looming) and more impossing. And maybe give you more room to do some very nasty red clouds above it.

It`s my next sketch. Now the plot of my pic became more clear. I think it will be spectacular enough :)

Yo Georgi don't you think it's a little dark here:D

I would give the violinist more dynamical pose.
And I agree with Nachev - it is possible hardly светлее...

I'm loving the violinist - its just makes this image so beautiful in a twisted way. :)
I personally like the violinist's pose... it gives it a feeling of some quiet horrror... but if you're going for dramatic or sweeping, I agree w/ everyone it should feel more dramatic.
Good luck!

Yes, it's a little dark, but it`s Hell, isn`t it ;)
Seriously, subsequently it will grow light, I draw from dark to light, it`s my technic.

Thanks to everybody for the advises :)

The concept of the violinist. He will wear dress-coat next to his skin.

i think, even left-handed violinists hold violins on the other hand because of the construction of the violin;] i don't know if it's a big deal if this does not reflect reality - maybe it helps you with the better composition. anyway, that's a nice sketch - good luck with the rest of the work.

I realy didn`t think about it :shrug: But I know left-hander guitarists.
Now so many things are produce on the line for left-handers: wristwatchs, mouses, golf sticks... So why can`t exist a violin for left-handed violinists? ;) It dosn`t matter any way. Conversely, it gives even more contents to the picture. In the Middle Ages left-handed people were burned on the stake, because they were thought to be magicans... I will think about it and will work out my conception :bounce:

anyway, this little logical problem is solvable anytime by horizontal flipping of the image, if it will be really necessary:]

Yes, of course :) But I`ve never fliped horizontaly my pictures before. May be it`s a little bit ridiculous, but I feel like it will change my perception contrary.

wow your concept is very nice, and very emotional. I love the darkness and how the violinist show the audience how sad the situation is..
very nice!

good luck!! ;)

My first coloring...
There will be Nested dolls arranged on the fence. The dolls faces will be the effigys of the biggest sinners of the World.

The picture gradually appears also I all I understand that it more and is Spectacular - great and awful!.. The oppressing mood already is present!
Very original decision of a gate of a hell! :eek:

The horseman with the split hands - too excellent!!!
Yes, here is what to consider!
:thumbsup:

...ok look. The background is nice color filled. It's not good idea to put absolute horisontal line in this scene, make some perspective. The idea for the figurines on the wall - i like it. The horse and the rider appears strange to me, and try to improve the violinist pose, perhaps a general change in it would be of help, make some photo reference or something if you need...overall the idea is original. keep going and have fun..

Wow hof, this is one heck of a challenge! I really love the idea, and the narrative within it, the idea of having effigies of the world's biggest sinners on the doll's faces is a step short of genius. I do think asparta has some relevent point, particularly on the violinist. There's no shame in using reference, and it would make this even better, more poignant.

Hehehehe.. I just noticed the golden arches too... that really made me smile.

Great concept though, keep with it and I shall definitely pop back to see how you get on.

Thank you all for your advices. I have considered them and really decided to change the composition. I added new characters too. Don`t pay attention to the violinist in the foreground. He wouldn’t look such as now. In a consequence I will replace him with another image. Most likely it will be a musician, playing on duduk. It is an unique Armenian musical instrument . As Marlon Brando in " Apocalipsis now " he must appear in last stage to generalize in itself all sense and mood of the picture.

Yes, thank you, you are right, it`s too red :bounce: I`ve already changed it... I`ve changed also many things again, and I will update my picture soon...

Nikolay, thank you :)
