Latest Update: Concept Sketch: Twisted Gravity
09-09-2005, 10:13 AM
Hi! This is the first time I enter a challenge.. :)
Here's one idea I had.. actually I've entertained myself with the idea of gravity going wrong somehow ever since I was a kid. The idea'd be to convince the viewer that it's not the wind that's throving houses, cars and other stuff around, they're just falling into the horizon.

welcome, have fun, nice start :thumbsup:
09-09-2005, 10:41 AM
haha great idea! :D Good luck and have fun.
SWEET! I love your concept! Keep going!
09-09-2005, 11:03 AM
well this is something more original than the most of other entries i've seen yet so far. will watch this, good luck!
09-09-2005, 11:08 AM
Nice idea... best of luck! It'll be hard work! But could look very spectacular!
I really like the people and pets. I love the way the boy is turning to look back at the cat, who looks so frightened. And all in the minimum of brush strokes. Good stuff.

Cool. I like the way the lake's emptying out. Maybe a confused looking bird would look neat.
be sure to check out Escher's drawings to get more ideas with weird perspectives etc.
ja sitten kolmoisvoitto Suomeen tästä kisasta..

Squbbit: Thanks. :) I've been following your work in the previous challenges... looking over the shoulder of ElFuego who's a friend of mine and was the one who persuaded me to join this challenge. You've had some very original concepts. :)
Lync: Thanks for commenting. :)
uiron: You think so? That sounds encouriging, maybe I'll stick to this theme, then.
duddlebug: Thanks. Yes, I think I'm gonna keep the pets, they definitely seem to make this concept work better.. somehow.
ChrisThatGuy: lol! :D Good idea.. a confused duck might be funky.
Ranath: Escher.. yeah, I know his work... thanks for the tip. I'm definitely gonna try different angles and then choose the one that works best.
WOW. That's one of the best ideas around . Good luck

Actually I'd like to make my Spectacular be something positice, sweet and low-key.. so far I've only been able to come up with pictures of destruction. *Sigh!*
Anyway, war is spectacular.. travel back in time to see the Battle of Normandy with your own eyes, take your kids with you to see where your grandfather died. Aboard the floating platform are all the archetypical characters of British aristocracy.. just like in P.G. Wodehouse's books.. the spoiled kids, the handsome couple, the old granny, the geezer uncle.. ;)
...I'll continue sketching.

really great concept! I I'm not sure which I like better though, this or the first one. Maybe the gravity going wrong would be spetacular if you experiencing it. but going back to normandy would probably look more spectacular.
09-10-2005, 08:53 PM
Nice concept. I like how it has a nice humorous touch to it, but i'm definately digging the "Twisted Gravity" idea. That would be interesting to play around with.
Goodluck and will keep up with the progress.
09-10-2005, 11:38 PM
Nice concept sketches so far, good luck to ya, will be dropping by later!:thumbsup:
09-11-2005, 06:01 AM
Normandy tours, are bad go with that, it's little touchy, but I think it's great concept
09-11-2005, 03:48 PM
This is going to be a good one, mark my words, peeps :)
(:curious: Normandy touchy? I could think of touchier military operations than that...)
09-11-2005, 04:05 PM
haha :D Great idea :) Im looking foward to see more. Good luck
09-11-2005, 04:13 PM
yAdam: Thanks. :) Maybe I'll stick to the gravity theme, after all.
Arc80: You're right.. it'll be much more fun.
beelow: Thanks. :)
Korline: Yeah.. I decided to discard the Normandy idea.
Kargokultti: Actually I was supposed to make it a sci-fi pic.. trying to make a point of wars having become an important form of TV -entertainment. Nay, this whole idea is a bit too pretentious, so let's forget it.
Pawlack: Thank you. :)

Yeh well, it's still early stages. I doubt I'm going to stick with my first idea either. I had this vision of a news cast from the year 2136, of a member of the public mooning at the the signing or the World Peace Treaty. I bet that'd be pretty spectacular...
09-11-2005, 05:46 PM
I kind of like the gravity one better, but if you go with the normandy tour one, I'd suggest putting some kind of energy bubble around them so it looks like they're cloaked so that the fighter pilot don't see them and they don't alter the timeline.
09-11-2005, 06:02 PM
Nice composition you have there! :) You could try to make more contrast between the values of foreground and background elements.
09-11-2005, 11:15 PM
Wow cool concepts, very original!
I'm not sure wich idea I like better, they both have great potential, altho maybe it would be very difficult to explain 'falling into the sky' in a single illustration I think.
I like your sketches BTW, cool style, keep it up and good luck!
09-12-2005, 11:53 PM
So.. back to the first idea. Exploring the idea a bit further. Seems like everything is falling towards the sunset. Hmm.. well, as long as it looks spectacular... which I hope this does. I'm not totally happy with it.. something's missing. The thing they're standing on is supposed to be a STOP -sign BTW.
09-13-2005, 12:52 AM
wellcome and have fun... nice concepts:thumbsup:
09-13-2005, 02:51 AM
looking good...but for some reason i like the simplicity of the first composition. This one has a nice dynamic angle, but it's a bit hard to read the effect of gravity. looking forward to the next update mate :thumbsup:
09-13-2005, 06:55 AM
i support the latest angle, it's perfect. you can look very deep, and seeing birds fly in a wrong plane, helps to understand what "horizontal" is now.
i'm very happy you returned to your initial idea, and stop sign gives a very simbolic meaning.
09-13-2005, 07:52 AM
nice sketches mate~dig that normandy concept~keep playing ,u have great composition sense:)goodluck!
09-13-2005, 08:28 AM
Great feel to these Jarkko. Smashing lighting in the last one. :)
09-14-2005, 01:08 PM
Kargokultti: I like your idea.. peace treaty is as an event much more spectacular than war... which is spectacular only in a visual sense.
ChrisTahtGuy: Yeah, a force shield would be needed for that pic..
TeemuR: I played a lot with contarsts, but nothing seemed to work really well.
Rudeone: Thanks. :)
Ducklator: Thanks. :)
Arc80: thanks for the comment. Gotta keep on testing...
Uiron: Yey! One vote for this angle.. it's still not perfect tho.
sh"ke: ..and another vote for the Nornamndy scene. Thanks. ;)
PoshSpice: Thanks. Making that light work in colour will be a real challenge.. X__x
09-14-2005, 01:39 PM
I was thinking, maybe you could paint the cat with his backlegs allready in the air and with his frontpaws desperatly trying to keep hold of the stop-sign.
Also maybe you could paint the hair of the boy and girl upwards like they're hanging upside down, know what I mean, I think that would help read the whole reversed gravity theme better.
09-14-2005, 01:43 PM
Man, I am diggin' some of your sketches they are tops, will check back, lata!:thumbsup:
09-14-2005, 04:12 PM
man.. you have really got a poweful image there... nice lighting and narrative quality in it.. dham.. jealous
09-14-2005, 05:32 PM
Awesome thinking!got good potential!!
09-16-2005, 07:24 PM
twisted gravity....dude, that´s a very good idea :thumbsup:
the sketch gives allready a good impression. I would stick with this idea it´s very individual and could turn out great in the end.
I´m looking forward to watch this progress.
