This is just a warmup. (45 min-1 hour) I don't have a great idea yet. But here you go. A little boy lost in a mysterious jungle. Maybe an alien planet? who knows.

Nice concept! For some reason the forum thumbnail reminded me of Monkey Island, haha. That can only be a good thing!

As for the picture- maybe have him holding something suggesting a journey or maybe more debris or something...really make him look like he's just arrived. It almost looks like he's come into an area of the forest and is surprised by something he sees there...like what...? If you add more stuff, it'll make it clearer that he just (crash) landed!

Good so far.. I agree with the comment about more debris from the wreacked spaceship. Maybe a path off into the jungle to better suggest a journey? How about some evil yellow eyes in the brush to get him thinking about not staying too long? :eek:

I'm thinking on some ideas. This is not the greatest idea i have but what the hell. Here you go. A man is going to work in a retro futuristic world. 30 min sketch. Maybe i can sketch the same idea in an alien world. More sketches coming soon. cheers

Zycho
03-04-2006, 09:21 AM
I really love this sketch! Very nicely done! Nice to see retro and futuristic design come together!! Though I don't think it's all that original, which is a shame, since the sketch is very nice...!!

Can't wait to see more from you!

Zycho - Thanks for your comments. Yea, i can not talk about originality in this sketch. I'm just opening my mind for further ideas. I'll keep sketching.

authentic - Thanks. Yea the car is a bit big i guess. No worries though:)

KOryH - Kory! My man! I still remember the day that you colored my sketch. It was great. Glad you dropped by. You're going really well in this challenge. Hope you can finish. Thanks for your comments and take care.

Wow! -Even if you feel the concept is not the greatest -the sketch is sublime! It makes your idea fascinating! Your use of colour blows me away! Are you a fan of Lorenzo Mattotti (http://www.mattotti.com/)? Your use of colour really reminds me of his work- and hes gotta be one of the greatest exponents on the use of colour. Keep up the good work! I cant wait to see where you go with this!

Your new concept is definitely an improvement, your drawing style is unique from what I can see. Keep it up!

looks good. A suggestion: how about giving the image an old fashioned look like the 50īs pin ups something like that:http://www.bawidamann.com/gallery/galleries_oldschoolpinup.html

Squibbit - Hehe:) Thanks Squib!

Selina42 - Thanks for your comments. I don't know Lorenzo Mattotti, but now i know. Thanks alot.

Ramitxon - Thanks alot. Really appreciated.

MichaelMotion - Thanks. Actually he's going to work so i don't think that i would draw a plane there, but thanks for the idea anyway.

BaronImpossible - Thanks baron. Glad you dropped by.

renderwhite - Thank you!

Velarion - Thank you. I hope so :rolleyes:

marcoracer - Thanks for your comments. I'l put more details on the characters in the next sketch. And maybe i can use them bigger.

slickgreekgeo - Hey, thanks. Appreciated.

bandro - Thanks for your comments. I don't know if i can go with a highly stylised technique like the ones in your link that you gave. I'm more into realistic painting. I'll see what i can do.

Louieville - Thanks.

Ok guys and gals, i think i'm slowly getting there. I've found my theme. Inspired from my 2nd sketch. An alien planet, they are sending a youngling to a big journey to explore the other galaxies. Interesting alien outfits, different designs. Totally alienish designs. This sketch is just the idea part. There will be more characters. Almost a "big crowd". Kind of a ceremony. I think the next step is line art. :) At last.

Here's the alien that i'm gonna use in my theme. The known "Sectoid" concept. Bu in my taste and colors. I'll also design some different outfits for them. The next step will be the line art and the general composition. Take care for now.

03-16-2006, 12:10 AM
Nice alien concept Emrah. One crit, the scene seems a little lucid right now. By that I mean that the main character seems like he is waiting for something that might not come. I think if you open the doors where the aliens are standing it will convey a more climactic and dramatic message. Looking foward to more work.

anzibon
03-16-2006, 12:50 AM
amazing translucency in your aliens. can't wait to see what this becomes.
top notch work!

one thing in the composition is that maybe a camera angle closer to that of the young alien would allow us to see more from his perspective. feels a bit detached from the high angle.

Stahlberg
03-16-2006, 08:17 AM
Damn your sketching is good.

The last idea is so excellent... but, it may be hard to imbue it with human emotion since they're... well aliens. :) Maybe you'll have to cheat it a bit, and use anthropomorphic 'tricks' to help us empathize with the character.

-tolga- - Thanks mate. Glad you dropped by. Cheers

britt - Thanks britt. I know what i mean but this is not the actual composition. It was just a warm up for the main compo. I'm working on the main one now. Hope i can post it soon. Cheers

anzibon - thanks for your comments. As i told to britt too, it's not the actual composition. I'm working on the main compo, so check back soon:)

Slav - Glad you liked it man. Thanks for the compliment :D

Stahlberg - Good to see you here Steven, glad you liked the idea. That is what i was thinking about. I'll surely use some anthropomorphic 'tricks' as you said, to make the image warmer and more epic. Maybe the young alien with his mother and father or stuff like that. Thanks for dropping by man. You're going really great too.

Squibbit - thanks dude. good to see you too.

rawwad - thank you. very appreciated.

anilduran - thank you mate. glad you liked it. I'm gonna use some different outfits on this typical alien design. So it's gonna be more interesting.

sh@ke - thank you dude. I don't know, maybe they can smile too. :)

melkao - thanks

Gus_clifton - thanks for your comments. Well, it's all on purpose that i'm using the classic alien design. My idea is a view from their side, not the human side. Seeing the classic aliens from their view. Thats why i use them. The most know alien design. It won't make a sense if i design a different creepy alien. I will go with this dude instead. Thanks for your suggestion though.

Great idea Emrah!

The little fella with the suitcases a couple of pages back is just great!

We always seem to see 'earthlings' heading off to other planets, so it's great to see that subverted and get an alien perspective. I can't wait to see where it goes...

This was supposed to be the lineart but it's far from it. Kind of a composition sketch. I'm worrying about the ship on the background. Didn't like the design of it. Maybe i'm going to change it. Let me know what you think...

domclubb
04-17-2006, 07:57 PM
great designs. i think i prefer the scetch with the young alien and his suit cases. It's easier to understand than your latest scetch. I do like the composition of the latest one though. It feels a lot more grand. Maybe the ship could be clearer. Initially i thought it was a buiding. Very promising though. keep it up.

emrahelmasli
04-18-2006, 06:13 AM
domclubb - hey, thanks for the reply. The first one with the suitcases was just a warmup actually. The main composition must be more dynamic and crowded. So, i'm working on this one. Yea, the ship needs some attention. Thanks.

taz23
04-18-2006, 08:19 AM
Great stuff so far dude. I think this composition could work really good...maybe one of the alien characters can look behind like a one last look before the great journey..
