just an idea. A flying Ninja-GP and two GPs sitting there and wondering if they gonna dare to go on that journey. Leave home for the big city? Have some better ideas, but trouble to show the purpose with the journey. Well, itīs a start and got the pressure on myself to show anything better than this soon...

one idea is to make them into mountain/window climbers in the kitchen. They just have to get to that peanutplant in the window.

You love your GP's don't you?

I like the first idea best, especially the ninja GP! HA ha!

shakes
03-01-2006, 05:39 PM
love the ideas Mona, the first one I like for the magicalness, and the second for simplicity.
I think I like the first best, but if you did the second one, maybe you could change the perspective so the GP is looking up at the peanut pot, so you get a sense of scale.

soapy
03-01-2006, 05:40 PM
Hey great sketches Mona. I can't say which one I like better, they are both fun and have loads of potential!

LexLe: thanks :)
Zapan: mmm... feathers and fur :p and add some peanuts too... haha :p
Michael Chang: do you mean I donīt need to hide from your thread then ;)
Gunilla: thanks. and I hope that you didnīt bring the mits... :eek:
Crin: I do :love: them.. does it show so well... haha. but they are source of inspiration with their joy for life.
Shakes: mmm. if I go for the kitchenscene I have to crawl the floor with my digicam, so I get the right angle...
soapy: I having fun... by myself here... and gonna play some more...

having some more ideas. one with a airplane, and one with a dressed like warriors, but my mind is slower than usal. I blame it on the cold/fever. Canīt be my blondiegens.. naaaa...
but if any of you have any ideas, shoot...

Lemog
03-01-2006, 08:53 PM
Of course... I go for the first one... a real journey... but maybe with a composition a little bit different... but about the story... it's perfect :thumbsup:

the first concept, but changed the flight of the bird. Like he going in for a landing and pick the other two up...

makaron
03-01-2006, 11:58 PM
hallo Carina: glad you like it, and I didnīt see that about Nils Holgerson first. well he had a goose, maybe I can do a budgie... now I not sure what kind of bird it is :)

Hi Elise: thanks :) wheep and sqiuck from my two GPs IRL to you... :p

Lemog: morning to you :) do you like it better now?

still have some more concept to explore...

This latest sketch is better, maybe the two that are waiting could have some bags packed and other "were about to leave this place" type items with them. (Can you say "GP Passports"?)

Looking forward to see more.

zem
03-02-2006, 06:11 AM
I also like the second concept(Outdoors) more then the indoor. A GP suitcase perhaps?

Good Luck!

03-02-2006, 06:29 AM
Hey Mona!

So nice sketches! My favorite is of course the first concept and I love the last sketch for it:thumbsup: !
The already mentioned idea of some bags packed beside the GP's may be good!
Eagerly waiting for the next steps!:bounce:

Crin: GP has passports when they travel abroad, a piece of paper that confirm they are healty :p I can put that in the black ones backpack...
Zem: a suitcase is a must and now they got one :)
DaWinky: the next step is the airport... haha.. how about that. :scream:
Lemog: now when they have a green "airplane/bird" is it less of Bernard & Bianca then? :rolleyes:
Gunilla: here we go, but, a lot of time left, they maybe change their tickets soon, to another place... ;)
Agamemnwn: friends are the best thing... with or without wings... :D
Shake: I just knew you would like a flying Ninja GP :p

playing around still... and now Iīm off to crawl the floor for the right perspective... and search for some refs.

this new sketch is great Mona! good thinking!

Crin
03-02-2006, 11:07 AM
I'm not soo keen on the sirport idea, takes away from the "out of the ordinary" feel a bit I think. I'd go with the original concept but the second revision on it. Also, shouldn't the bird be a bit bigger so we know that it's gonna fit the other GP's on it? Or maybe two tohers following behind? Or maybe it could be carying a basket for them to hop into?

makaron
03-02-2006, 11:14 AM
me: hi there my dear GPs. I have to ask you girls, what do like the most. A airport and a flight to Carrotland or just sit on the stairs?
Sunny: hmm, hard Q:n, can I have a peanut while Iīm thinking?
Ninja: airport, airport... I wanna fly high in the sky...
Sunny: hrmf... donīt listen to her, she is like a fly herself, all over the place, jumping and sqiucking...
Ninja: me naaa. Iīm just a kid so I canīt sit still...
me: stop gnaging girls and think instead...
Ninja: me think... naaa... Iīm just te pretty one... I donīt think... Iīm just cute :p
Sunny: told you! *sigh* I like to sit still and think, and eat and get fat...
me: but if you can take a journey, where should it go then... your choice.
Sunny: where is a lot of food :) huge bowls and plenty of hay... and peanuts :D
Ninja: yeah... and carrots and tomatoes... and cucumbers.. jummy!
Sunny: but Ninja, you donīt like tomatos...
Ninja: ops... didnīt think of that... but, they are nice to look at, all red.
Sunny: Iīm off to the food.. CYA
Ninja: me too... wait for me Sunny!

me: itīs all about having fun isnīt it... ;)

AIR: of course is it more GPs... ;) haha... nice to see you, happy you like
Shakes: good thinking sir... Iīm a bit proud when you say I can think...:eek: thanks...
Crin: the carry basket is a smart idea... gonna write that down...

Hej! :)
I like the latest concept.. I wonder where they wanna go? :p
I like the fellow on the birds back the most(i know you like your guinniepigs and they are cute too :)), hes got very much character and looks really good imo, maybe if you gave your G-P's clothes and/or stuff they'd get more personality..
Keep it up!

Later.. :)

enialadam: I just have to agree. GPs are the cutest... and happy you like the idea... :)
but Shakes: can anything be too cute? should be my avatar then... ;)
hejsan FrozZt: the funny thing that the one you like, on the birdback, is Ninja... one of my own GPs... so I use her as a ref for that one... here she is...
http://hem.bredband.net/makaron/Bild-57.jpg
she have a bit longer fur now, she is a peruvian so the fur grows about 3cm a month... and can be about 3dm long... The black GP is Sunny... and she is gonna be hard to paint... all that deep black shiny fur.... :D

03-02-2006, 10:10 PM
Great stuff mona, I particularly like the last one of the bird in the sky...where they are going away...reminds me of bernard and bianca like lemog said. :)

What's the deal with the strange chewing noise they make when they're not eating? I never could figure out what that was!

makaron
03-02-2006, 10:28 PM
hi paperclip :) nice you like it

Sunny makes those noises when she is eager to get a treat, and thinks it takes too long for me to serve it... Ninja sounds like that just before she goes to sleep, when she is relaxed and happy with life...
But if they does it to eachother, nose against nose... itīs a warning for war... :eek: then you can hear how they really sharpen their teeth...

Always a pleasure to read through your thread, good mood here:) !

hallo Sabrina... I have the same thoughts... airport more funny, stairs more of a thinking/dreaming. The GPs is still eating breakfast, so I cant get any good answers from them :p anyway... I gonna to some more on the sketches today, and see if I have more feeling for one of them.. or maybeI get started on a third one... you never know... haha

Lemog: I just told them that the morningkisses from Lemog was served... and jumping of joy now ;)

Nice update - you've become a real master in drawing GPs!
Maybe you could try to widen the shot a bit to bring more distance between the pair and the bird so the feel of them waiting gets stronger?
And having them in a homey environment is great :thumbsup:

you have a point there FrozZT, maybe have to make a huuuge parrot instead... :eek:

hallo _RK_: :) happy you like it... the right side is gonna be a lot of plants, as it looks like now anyway...

hi lilCara: Iīm sending in the Ninja... do you think that helps to take over this site... :p haha

Gunilla: thatīs the problem for now, the distance... :D even not sure about the comp yet, so I started the fur instead...

Agamemnwn and Zapan: a city is planed. long distance shown. And in that Carrotcity Iīm sure that itīs petfoodstore and a huge peanutfactory... :bounce:

You get me rolling on the floor with each sketch Mona - that ninja is just great! :scream: The pansies in the corner are just the best touch! Hiiiiiiya!

The hair on his head actually reminds me of two of my old piggies...one of them, Ryoko, was all black with this tiny gold blob ontop of her head - and the other, Fliss used to keep munching on this particular gold fur and it grew back like a mohawk :D

Hahaha. Maybe you should get one of wood, or rather make one, as the one sold in store are possibly too small for more than 1 guinea pig :/. Sure, they'll try to eat that aswell, but it holds longer :). Be sure to round out the edges if you do though.

hej Gitte...

nice idea.. :bounce: in fact been thinking of putting in something red in the image... I thought more in a way of a big red parrot as the plane...

What a nice and sweet sketch of a guinea pig there.Wonder who likes G/P's here. :)

I like this fella,it reminds me of my crow character.With his flying hat and gogles.

Keep sweet Mona. :thumbsup:

I love the way they have stuff tied onto them. :D This is such a cute concept!

I think you should give them more of a form shadow on the bottom- right now they're looking a little flat, but hey you have 3 months to go. :D

Great job on the pigs themselves, reminds me of my own pigs (fuzzy and wuzzy).

makaron
03-12-2006, 06:38 AM
hallo AIR... and your crow and my GPs maybe reads the same fashionmagazine :thumbsup: you got to have the helmet on when flying...

ecura: thanks and GPs never rest always up to something... :) glad you like it...

paperclip: they have no pockets in their fur so, gotta have the tickets somewhere... I once try a leach on one of my GPs.. :rolleyes: she was jumping and sqiurl around like nuts ... haha
but itīs from that I got the idea with ropes to carry things... cute names they had BTW.

Hey Mona,

Your guinea pigs are looking good:thumbsup: . I am thinking that you could use more shadow on the under side of your objects , this would give a better feeling of depth. The basket on the last guinea pig should be causing some form of shadows. Don't know if this is the style you are going after but I just thought I would mention it.

hallo walrus, thanks and great to see you here.. and Iīm on the cuteness... my little brain is full of cute and fur... :rolleyes:

yep Gonzalo Golpe. Ninja Airlines is the way to go... and eating are the most imported thing in a GPs life so they have to trael in good taste :p haha

A I R, sorry to get you on the wrong track there... you know me, let the GPs run all over the place :scream:

thanks tuck... nice to hear :)

thanks... all the shadowing comes later on mmoir and the ticket is gonna look a bit used too... :surprised or cheewed on, they got hungry waiting...

and I donīt like this JPG.compressions. all my furwork is ruined :cry: hmm, not all of it but a lot... but thatīs life... happy that you all seems to like the little travellers...

PLacing him on a golden background made it look like a dream... very nice.

Nice work Mona, the eyeball is very well painted.

I wonder if you could take the ticket and run some distort and lighting effects over it to sort of unflatten it? I am out of touch a bit with all the effects photoshop and painter can do these days....

W-I-L
03-12-2006, 04:56 PM
i get the impresion that you are going to do all shading and lighting effects after ward which is a bit backward in my mind... looking very flat now and without being able to see where the light is coming from or the form it seems hard how you are going to choose the appropriate colours when shading... you should try workign out the form first and working up from dark to light. anyways will be watching.. love the idea.

cuuute! I love the eye Mona-beautifully done, and the little package is funny!

makaron
03-12-2006, 08:55 PM
hejsan Gunilla: the golden color is from a baby GP Målle was father to... a real nice shade of furcolor... and for the book... donīt you think itīs enough with this challenge.... :eek: haha

Sir Soapy: thanks... Iīm on the ticket just now and doing some "used" look... even done a little pawprint and some bitemarks... not with any filters, just brusches and earse.. and a bit of blur. ops! :eek: blur is a filter... haha

W!L: thanks and I eager to take every any advice I get... :bounce: and Iīm a bit backwards too... this GP is a bit tricky to get in the shade Iīm after.. gonna try with the dark and go lighter and see what happends... still have everything in layers so shadows and things on the backpack and tickets is easy to get done.. when Iīm sure where the light is coming from...

mr Shakes: oh thank you for like the eye... :thumbsup: and I like the carrottbackpack myself.. maybe I have to make one for Sunny... so she can carry her treats... haha...

hehe beelow: they are cool both hamsters and Guinea pigs... as you say, no barking and no long walks outsie either... but I have to admit... I love most pets... but me and my GPs are kind of on a misson... :thumbsup:
thierry2005: but, but :eek: a global view whatīs that? hmmm... a garden you mean? haha...
coming soon... I hope...

and for you that might wonder what Iīm doing... my olīcomputer does take workloads very well... so itīs eaiser but a bit backwards to do things little by little...:hmm: and later put it together... piece by piece... brushes that are heavy, he does not like at all... takes for ever to use them, but Iīm on the shadows on the helmet GP now...
