Great start Kamjar!

03-01-2006, 03:55 AM
Put his spaceship closer to him. Less wrecked, but obviously not going anywhere maybe footprints from it? Like those are the first of a very long walk......

I do like the atmosphere and feel of what you've done so far.... :thumbsup:

03-01-2006, 04:21 AM

very nice sketch mate~makes me wanna do something with colors in sketches stage:thumbsup:

heh, actually i was thinking of doing the sketches with pencils instead from now on... :p

03-02-2006, 10:13 PM
The light mood is great, the particular colours also, I'll give some more life to the character, maybe with the environment around him...like his passage is devastating, or giving birth, or something ;)
Enjoy the ride, beautiful idea and good luck! XD

03-02-2006, 10:20 PM
that looks really good man ! good luck !

03-02-2006, 10:53 PM
this looks so promising! good luck!

03-03-2006, 01:45 AM
Nice idea! I'm particularly fond of this theme hehe, from an anime series when I was a kid ^_^. The sketch is great, at its basic state it portrays very well the vastness and solitude of that planet.

Good luck buddy!

03-03-2006, 09:04 AM
nice atmosphere so far, don't see the journey yet though

03-03-2006, 10:53 AM
its looking really good! keep it up

03-03-2006, 10:55 AM
Looks really great so far. I like the overall atmosphere and colors. One thing that strikes me though is the smoke and grass showing a heavy wind, maybe the character should show this too in some way(?).

03-03-2006, 03:47 PM
Good luck, Kamjar! I like first idea, keep your great working again :thumbsup:

03-03-2006, 04:10 PM
wow, great mood. really beautifull start, best of luck have a great journey and lots of fun!:D

03-03-2006, 04:24 PM
Those are just beautiful colors and atmosphere. Very exciting.

Also, marcoracer mentioned:

Put his spaceship closer to him. Less wrecked, but obviously not going anywhere maybe footprints from it? Like those are the first of a very long walk......

Quoted for agreement. Right now he looks liike he's in the middle of a Journey. Associating him more with his downed ship might help convey the "Beginning" part of the mission statement more :)

Good luck!


03-03-2006, 10:22 PM
look good :thumbsup: !!

03-04-2006, 03:32 PM
Very nice stuff, Kam! :cool: You're (one of ;) ) the best! :bounce: That first sketch(es) look very interesting and moody (as we are used of your work)! I'm really looking forward for other concepts and progression on your entry!

Good luck and all the best! :D

03-05-2006, 03:21 PM
Lovely setting! Maybe add some companions or a ship that he came out from? Just feels empty at the moment... Just a thought... good luck! :thumbsup:


03-06-2006, 12:42 AM
great start kamjar, nice sketch, nice color pallette Good luck :thumbsup:

03-09-2006, 08:45 AM
like a strategy game! a solder inthe middle of the deserted land! LIKE IT! go on!:thumbsup:

03-16-2006, 08:38 PM
very nice color scheme... love it!

03-16-2006, 09:06 PM
Hey man, I really enjoy this concept.. I think adding something like a vast land laying before this guy would relate it more to the title of the challenge. It would at least make the viewer think that he's in for a bigger journey than he is now...I'll be checking back, i remember some of your work from last time!

03-17-2006, 07:52 PM
Great concept and painting !!! keep it this way !!!
Good luck ! i'll keep an eye on ya !:scream:

05-25-2006, 10:52 AM
Kam, mate :beer:, where are you?! As I haven't seen you here on the forums for a while, I guess you cancelled this challenge? That would be very sad, as I really like your concept, and as you can see lots of other people do too! :scream: :twisted:

All the best to you, and I hope to see you soon on the forums! :)
