Sure is quiet in here... Hey Shane, Let's see some concepts.

I know your busy man, Hope you can post some Ideas for this challenge.

"Gaia's Mercy" is a double edge sword of servant and master. Inspired by many recent cataclysmic events regarding the power of nature, it is a humble reminder of who is truly the master on this plane. The lyrics from Sting song (wrapped around your finger) portray for me the essence of this piece:

"Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air you'll never find me.
I will turn your face to alabaster,
Then you'll find your servant is your master,"

The woman [Gaia obviously] will have hair of clouds, a body of crystalline water. It will be raining, as a village of worshipers beckon her blessing. Below on the beach are offerings, it is unclear whether they are people, fish hand made or what have you. Four urns are burning brightly despite the wet weather.

looks great shane,but theres either an anatomical problem with that arm or u just have sum foreshortening issues.

04 April 2005, 05:00 PM
LOL its a sketch Noob, ever do those quick 5 minute sketches? :scream:

04 April 2005, 05:51 PM
yes i have done 5 mins sketches.

04 April 2005, 12:29 AM
YES, i love big stuff like that,
when you have to see few details to anderstand the scale of the drawing!

04 April 2005, 11:52 PM
dude, awesome concept and i love that song man i think you should stick with this concept im acpecting to be blown away by this one man cant wait to see it colored

04 April 2005, 08:10 AM (

Here I begin the final line art. I still have the village and people to attend to. One thing I advanced in the portrayal of Mercy, you can see how the Gaia spirit is ready to unleash the rain with one hand but holds back the enormous waves with the other, poised and ready as she listens to the pleading village seeking to appease her and recognise how they have not heeded her previous warnings. Now the time is poignant, will they change thier ways, or be destroyed by what they thought was thier servant.

Thank you for the great support so far, I am hoping this turns out to be a very dynamic, beautiful (I love landscapes) yet vengeful feeling of tension, all the mood will be set by the lighting.

04 April 2005, 07:24 PM
i like how your concept and line art is coming along, when you start coloring maybe you should have some waves splash in a way that conveniently covers her crotch so you wont have to use a smooth spot and also she is just a little to mucly i would probably tone that down just a tiny bit ya know

04 April 2005, 09:20 PM
i like the lineart a lot. really looks great. cant wait to see some colours.

04 April 2005, 12:07 AM
Much appreciated, I'll be out of town on a family emergency for the next week. I have no laptop and there are no computers where I'll be sooooooooooo, thanks again for visiting, I'll be caught up by the 12th. See you then!


04 April 2005, 03:11 AM
I'm baaack! everything went better than expected [yeah]. I'm a bit off track on my art project schedule, but I will have an update very soon, thanks for viewing.

Oh yeah, its not going to remain brown like that, thats just the underpainting, old traditional habit mind you. Well more colors to be coming this week. Thanks for stopping in!

04 April 2005, 09:48 AM
Nice concept! I like the color comp so far. Looking forward to seeing how it develops. I dig her pose more in this one than the 5 min sketch. :D

04 April 2005, 03:57 PM
Nice to see this pic start to come to life. maybe you could have some sun rays coming through
the clouds and shining on the people.
Nice work so far.

04 April 2005, 04:31 PM
Still got lots of stuff to do . But i like where it's going so far. Love to see more color changes to the pic by the way. Good Luck

04 April 2005, 02:38 AM
