just ideas for now.. I figure I'd just shoot out some ideas and hopefully you guys can give me your opinions and ideas?

This first concept is about the journey of a young man that had to leave his family for an important mission. He flies off on his furry friend that is half lion, lizard and eagle.

oooooooooh!

you could make the character face forward with a strong facial expression rather than facing down for a more powerful message thru emotion... tho hardly needed... just an idea...

good luck! :thumbsup:

Cool sketch. Concept sounds great. The view and composition's got drama potential with his hometown behind him as he flies away. Really intriguing on what creature design you're gonna come up with this "furry friend" of his.

I like the perspective :)

The wings look a bit strange on the furry creature however - they don't seem to be able to catch air as they look vertical instead of horizontal. Maybe it's me.

Good luck :p

The thing about the way you setup the scene is we see were he's coming from... but not were he's going... maybe you can explore some more point of views?

Hey Bobby. I really enjoy your work so I'm lookin' forward to seeing how this develops. Only thing I'm not too sure of is the 'lizard' bit, but I love the lion-eagle combo. But then again you could probably pull it off and impress me.

beautiful work Bobby, as always! I love the flying lion, especially in the smaller shot, where he looks like he has his head pushed into his chest, really going for the take off in a big way. Your animals always bow me away, regardless of style. Can't wait to see some development!

KevinR
03-27-2006, 05:54 PM
Hey Bobby,

Love the new concept, it's excellent. There's far more movement and power in this one. The stance of the rider is good and the lions head is agressively looking in the direction they're heading, I love it. If the second lions head is a possible choice there I would definitely stick with the one 'attached', it works better for the direction they're going in as well as gives the lion more 'attitude'. The city in the background also works nicely and the composition looks great. Looking forward to seeing this one finished.

I did another quick study for the final painting. I like to do at least 3 versions like this before I get down to the final. It helps me figure out any technical problems I might have. This way in my final piece I should be able to paint much more freely.

Thanks to everyone that has been commenting and visiting!

TheFirstAngel
03-30-2006, 04:08 AM
kewl, looking forward to your other variations then, the initial look of the citiscape looks promissing, great mix between fantasy and scifi feel.

I have a small crit. the cam focusses on the city instead on the animal wich lets it have a feel of motionblur blur on the wrong subject. if that makes sense.
Roll the cam might help that too to get a feeling like its "filmed" form another flying object and the cam follows the movement of it.
An option also worth a try maybe could be to close up the cam more on your flying animal that just leaves town, so closer objects get more affected by the movement, and instead of straightforwards already on rising.
The actual composition looks a bit like an architectural presentation where the animal flys trough.
Of course thats only my personal point of view, still hope that made sense, and was usfull in the one or the other point :) keep up the great work mate, as i said looking forward to your other composition variations, rock on!

MichaelZHsee
03-30-2006, 04:11 AM
great sketch bobby~i'd agreed with sacha,i'd have the character to be in focus but at the same time wouldnt defocusing too much of the vast epic background.could add some forground elements as well:)keep it coming bob:thumbsup:

NinjaA55N
03-30-2006, 08:41 PM
great city scape and superb composition! I agree with angel about focusing to the wrong place, either its still in the starting phase and Im sure u were planing to change that in the future steps. But a little bit of motion blur on the characters wouldnt hurt as well, after all they r moving with all that power and energy thru the air. I like it very much!

digital-bobert
03-30-2006, 09:26 PM
Hey thanks for the helpful crits guys! I agree as well! I'm going with something more close up like my original composition posted below.http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/entries/12/9615/9615_1141433682_medium.jpg
