this is an idea i had to quickly sketch out. a heart machine contoled by a blind human who sits and pedals to part pwer this machine. the heart is conected to the brain of this creature. i like the idea of the servent been the creature and the old man cycling to keep the creature alive to use him as a direction source. i hope im going about this the right way:) i am going to try two concepts, one typical in a way and another with m0re thought referencing the true symbolism between servant and master.

these are the concepts i have come up with, simple sketches i have roughed down to portray master + servant.
I need a hand, i have been using the net for 6 months and i am still in education, graphic design degree (concept art, digital painting + 3d, my passion). when i got the net i found a job, character designer for a computer game and i have wanted to post an image since i discovered cgnetworks but have not had the time to figure out how to post an image in the gallery section, and my sketches on this thread have been small for viewing because of the 140kb limit and have less experience than most in posting on the net.
i want to take one of these roughs and develop the theme further but i know i need to limit it to one out of the 5 sketches i have put up. i can use my own initiative but advice on the strongest theme out of the five would be helpful.
im new to this but i am looking forward to make new friends and learning through the experience.
any advise on how i am going about this will be much appreciated. cheers

i forgot to explain each pic :)

a - game concept, little boy sitting on the floor, eyes lit up like he is tranfix by the tv screen (playing a game). the character next to him is the boy as the character in the computer game, the game character has to handle the pain the scars etc within the game ( physically) and the game pad is ebedded in the back of this character. a war is the drama behind the two focal characters.
human been the master, character been the slave, alotr more inside that concept when u think bout it.

b - the idea of smoking and the tar ( demon ) behind the human, smoking and everything with it been t6he master, human been the slave. the fear of been overtaken my that form and dependancy.

c - this is a similar idea of the smoking concxept (yes i smoke). the bllood stains on the tissue paper in the bin etc showing that the smoke been the master and when a slave dies this master in all its forms can manipulate and a slave is naturally drawn to its master. etc

d- the idea of innocence portrayed within the girl and the smile on the dolls face. the girl small, slim weak (master) the doll seving its purpose.

i like em all and want to develop and my intuos is calling.

i need a little help. i dont exactly know how to save my image for the web using a file limit of kb without loosing the image. its really small. i have to scale it down. any help will be appriciated.ta

if you are using PS, Select "file->save for web->choose the second tab" then you can reduce number of pixels, but also jpg quality. Be sure to hit the 'apply button'

Use a combination of both quality and size and you should be fine.
