09 September 2005, 02:26 PM (

i think i have got the idea for my picture now.

above is a character sketch i did a while ago, but he is quite suitible to get the general idea. i have i fever right now, so i am not realy able to draw now, but i wanted to share my idea with you.

this will be about the urge of people to see the spectacular. in all times trough the history of humanity there where gladiator games. at some times called executions or now a days boulevard press and tv shows. people stop at car traffics and crime scenes just to see wether there are dead or injured people for the sensation.
the image will be about the new tv show of the future,where you could watch you own death.

i hope i am able to get a concept sketch with the environment and the viewer by tomorrow.

09 September 2005, 02:29 PM
A Nice sketch, gl in the challenge :)

09 September 2005, 02:37 PM
Nice character and idea :) I'm trying to understand the concept of watching your own death on tv.. you wouldnt actually die?

09 September 2005, 02:44 PM
that is one thing i am thinking about myself, but in the concept i have now, the viewer is dying while watching. but because the rider will be some sort of holograph it could be placed in a virtual reality wherer you really die and fell the pain and the life drift away from your body but then go back to real life and suddenly notice that you didnt die. well.......... i think this is becoming more twisted the higher the fever gets and my english is getting more terrible with it rising too.

09 September 2005, 03:09 PM
yeh!! horsie!! hehe,looking great!

09 September 2005, 03:35 PM
wheeee horsie! and white too.. arrrgsl.. you were faster :D

get well soon :wavey:

09 September 2005, 04:10 PM
Interesting concept and sketch ! I'll be watching this thread. Good luck. :)

09 September 2005, 06:24 AM
I love very much this interesting concept, between the reality show televised, and this interaction between the public, his death and these holographic virtual gladiators with horse.
Not easy to understant, but if I understood well the concept, it's really brilliant, and I wish you much courage for the realization which promises to be super interesting.
Cheer Britta :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:27 AM
looks great! i can feel the movement! great work!!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:10 PM
@noob: wheee, you`ve got a nice horsie too ;)

@dunkelgold: thank you; i am much better today, so i amgoing to paint paint paint :D

@koekebakker: your support is really appreciated

@lemog: i am glad you like it laurent. i will try to get it in a more proper english, with a more logic concept today *gg*. i was a little bit confused (well, i am confused most of the time) and just wrote it down as my thoughts gone loose.

@calisto: thank you:)

to get an idea of the perspective i set up a little 3d scene this morning (this is ok isnt it?). it needs some refinement still. what is really weired is that i have the full image in my head since 2 days without thinking much about it. i hope i will be able to get it on the canvas as i see it in my head.

09 September 2005, 12:11 PM
@noob: wheee, you`ve got a nice horsie too ;)

:applause: that sounds so wrong.

anywho,next update please....

09 September 2005, 12:15 PM
hey that horse looks really good :thumbsup:

and make sure that was the last time u get ill n stuff, grr


09 September 2005, 12:18 PM
@noob: i think in an hour or so there will be the next update ;)

@squib: i am trying really hard, but my imune system is on the lowest point you can imagine ..... so i get sick at the sight of a virus. glad you like my albino horsie. it will get some machine parts on it soon i think^^

09 September 2005, 05:21 PM
wow crazy idea!! I love it. I can't wait to see some more concepts. Nice work.

Good luck! :)

09 September 2005, 06:27 PM
Stylish sketch.
Willkommen zum Land und zu den Zeiten weniger Schlafens, viel Zeichnung.

09 September 2005, 09:09 PM
Its coming along nicely Ly..Just get nice and well. There's plenty of time.

At least with no TV to distract you, lots of time to devote to this piece.

09 September 2005, 09:20 AM (

some sketches for the rider of death. this night i tried to make up my mind for the rider. i am not quite satisfied with the demon style look.... but i dont think i will go for the standart with the skull ether. my favorite is the one with the undercut which face is only partly a scull.

09 September 2005, 09:34 AM
I like the gothlike death. So different. There's some kind of attractiveness to its ugliness. Dont know if I said it right. But I prefer the first weapon .

09 September 2005, 09:55 AM
yeh i'm liking the undercut too! looks like it cud work!

09 September 2005, 10:53 PM
Nice sketches! Me like me like.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:19 AM
thank you guys :) i got a colour sketch of the undercut guy nearly finished, but now i am a little bit troubled about him. there is another one coming up my mind..... but i have to go to bed first.

09 September 2005, 12:27 AM
Hi there, I like your concept, it could turn out very well, good luck :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:23 AM (

hm, colour sketch for the undercut death, i am not really satisfied with his look, i think it is too fantasylike.

well,he is wearing a chitin like material breatplate, because of its felxibility. it is ment to grow and be able to cover the wearer with flexible but unbreakble armor in my concept. on the other hand it is connected to the source of the holograph as well, along with the rider and the weapon.

i am currently drawing a totally different and more realistic looking one.

09 September 2005, 10:26 AM
i like it,maybe the sparkly power blue thingies are a bit much,*cos of em damn non-fantasy rules:rolleyes: *

but i think u'd get away with it.

09 September 2005, 10:30 AM
wah noob, you are fast. i do not intend to let them be so intense on the picture. they will be some sort of little blue lights or such which will be showing that he is a holograph after all. but if someone states he looks too fantasy to be true and such do not apply for the rules: well, i do know people who look this way.

09 September 2005, 10:32 AM
Oooh, I like that design... veeeery nice. :drool:

09 September 2005, 10:46 AM
Very nice designs, Britta! Looking forward to seeing you develop this one. :bounce:

I'll keep an eye on your thread...:thumbsup:


09 September 2005, 02:51 PM
nice designs i like it alot!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 05:11 PM (

another aproach on the rider. more emotional and not more mature

i think this is the way i will be going with him. i think i will try to create a more lunatic look, pared with compassion.

i thought about the situation again and came to the conclusion that the idea of watching your own death and the sensational lust going alongside is best approached by doubling the viewpoint. you will see the scene (working on an environmental sketch now) through the eyes of the "victim" and also the victim will be the rider, so that he stares in his own lunatic face.

09 September 2005, 05:22 PM

Nice studies! Are you working from reference, or from imagination? I think it's a great idea to do in depth studies like these ~ they'll definitely make your final work stronger.

Cheers, :)


09 September 2005, 05:25 PM
yes,its a very classical way of studying,with the sketch,and the white highlights i wish i had done more.

nice work

09 September 2005, 05:26 PM
i had reference, but i only looked on it half way. i must admit that i am a looser at drawing men.... so i needed reference.

that was my opinion too. i want him to have an emotional face and so i have to study it more and more, while doing the overall concept.

thank you for your replies everybody, they are very encouraging.

09 September 2005, 05:56 PM
Aah Lly this is certainly looking great. Keep it coming.

09 September 2005, 10:09 PM
Hi Llyna,

Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your comment on my skecth. Looks like youre still in the sketching stages so I will come back to see what more youve done. Keep at it and thanks again! :) - J

09 September 2005, 06:33 AM
I love the Death Concept II design... very strong effects, I prefer this kind of approach... in my advice, death is not a real dream... that must be strong and hard like this drawing...

...and when at the same time it's strong and beautiful, inevitably, we're attracted towards it, towards this death, unrelentingly. Very good way... :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:15 PM
hello :wavey: and good luck on your first challenge here!
I like your version of death, looking good so far!

09 September 2005, 01:13 PM
:wavey:hey lynna,:wavey:

@queenie: of course i will and you are the first one to know most of the times :)

@Chimp: thank you for commenting too and keep visiting because there are more sketches to come ;)

@Lemog: you always have this kind and encouraging words :) i dont want him to be a dream too. he will be as real as the victim because he will be the victim at least partly.

@coCoKNIght: thank you :)

@comaone: yeah thats me, well at least my hair *gg*

@Four Crows: thanks

09 September 2005, 02:39 PM
Hi Llynna,

Thanks for your welcome on my thread. It looks like you are being very thorough in getting the characters/concept nailed. I like the emotion conveyed in your eye studies; they look terrified! Good luck, ill pop in when you've done some more :D

09 September 2005, 06:56 PM

09 September 2005, 06:08 AM

mmmh... I've just forget to congratulate you for your new avatar... very pretty... and the next avatar step ? the second eye ? :scream: hahaha


argh... you change it today... :banghead: hahaha

well... nice painting so far too :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:24 AM
wow, thank you all for your encouragement and support :) you guys rock :thumbsup:

@DaveH: yeah you are right, i am very serious about that. but i want an emotional picture that gets the specularity from that angle, the emotions i mean.

@Ducklator: your support is really appriciated :)

@W!L: honoured you will be watching

@pushav: thanks :)

@Lemog: i will and no one can stop me. hell, i am a little bit megalomania this morning *gg* i will post a update soon anyway, just have to give it some little details.

as for the avatar, just changed it again^^. maybe again today, queenie suggested some *gg*. but the eye was/is finished and will always be one single eye.

@bigmouth: thanks for your support, most appreciated

@madshooter: will rock the world^^. if not by painting then by listening to loud music *gg*

09 September 2005, 08:54 AM (

i think i have got the look now that i wanted. dispair, insanitiy but paired with bits of fear

i worked on this more hours than i dare to admit (am so damn slow -.-). the next update will finally be about the concept for the whole image. i have got some but they are still on analog paper. since i lack a scanner these days because i had to move from my flat which had a leak of the water pipe.

i decided to give it a fish eye perspective, i mean a curv linear one. you will see directly through the victims eyes. see his feet and then this nice charming guy coming for you.

thanks for all your support :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:25 AM
yea that's the look :thumbsup:


09 September 2005, 09:27 AM
thanky squib :) glad you agree ;)

09 September 2005, 10:20 AM
dats one scaryass guy,nice work!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:23 AM
You have some nice studies! You have a very classical influenced style, I can't wait to see what you come up with, holla!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:48 AM
We can read here a real impressive of depth in his broad and astonished eyes. Really very strong, power in the straight of pencil.
I think that if you want to increase his impression of despair, his mouth should be half-opened, like if it to remain to him only one small breath of life, therefore of hope, like if it to try again to take a little of it and maybe, to come back towards his life.
The position of the head very well, is slightly raised, which reinforces the hope-despair relation.

I always find a fantastic work here... this not finished painting is already very beautiful...
...I could with pleasure frame it and hang it to one of my walls, or in one of my niches. :scream: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 10:56 AM
@noob: you somehow influenced me with your flamish style attempt^^.

@beelow: i trie to create some classic style image, i am bored of my fantasy style images these days and somehow the sketches turned out more classical. or maybe its rebecca who so often told em: study the old masters *gg*

@lemog: you are such a sweetie :) this means a lot to me.
but since he is the killer i want him to smirk some more, maybe a little bit more ironic. must think about it^^

09 September 2005, 11:02 AM
I believed that the murderer was the ambiguity reflection of personality and feelings of the person who watching him giving death... :eek: well... it's not easy in english :banghead:

09 September 2005, 11:25 AM
you are right somehow lauront :). it is quite hard for me to explain it properly in english too.... well it is hard to explain in german even.... quite confusing for all people. i hope to get it straight while painting. the point is, he is the reflection, but not only he is the embodiment of the greed for sensation which i intend to illustrate by the mor skullish and dark side of the face and the side of him that fears death and is in pain.

i know it is confusing.......... i will have a friend of mine write it down for me who is studying english^^

09 September 2005, 11:34 AM
it is quite hard for me to explain it properly in english too....
it's certainly my fault, with my bad english... remember the *gg* asking :scream: hahahaha

...and I'm sure it's not my last miss take :deal:

09 September 2005, 12:31 PM
it's really looking fantastic.seems like u have found a real good concept here.great lighting and shading sense.keep it up!!!

09 September 2005, 02:00 PM
mhhm this concept is very interesting .. i like it :)
the last death sketch is awesome .. its got nice depth ... when i saw deaths expression i tought that maybe he didnt really want to do his job in the beginning , but as he had to do it, he became a bit mad with time ... ermm yeah :shrug:

mach nur weiter so ^^

big mouth
09 September 2005, 02:24 PM
Its a different concept, But its look fine from here.
best of luck:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 04:02 PM
Is he a badbuy? Nice concept.

09 September 2005, 06:48 PM
@lauront: doenst matter :) just ask and i will answer if i can *gg*. :love:

@CG-AvangarD: your support is really appreciated :) thank you for your kind words :)

@Vahn: hehe, good thought, maybe he really got mad because of something like this, thank you for sharing these. i will think over it for sure :) bei dem zuspruch muss ich ja auch weitermachen, hoffentlich bekomme ich alles so hin wie ich das will^^.

@pushav: badbuy? yeah i think you could call him that, if you think people who kill for lust and sensation^^

09 September 2005, 10:49 PM (

some quick thoughts on the setup.

not too satisfied with this, but it gives a rough insite on what i am planning to do. i came to the conclusion that the ideo to see it through the eyes of the watcher/victim isnt goint to be a good one. these black thingies are supposed to be hands *gg* and the black and white lines are supposed to be some sorts of spiderweb or such.

09 September 2005, 11:49 PM
That's one interesting concept you have here and some cool sketches and studies too, some pretty disturbing I must say hehe.

Keeping an eye out to see how you're gonna develope this concept, good luck!

09 September 2005, 12:30 PM
wow!! thats amasing! i love your sketches, and yust as u said it ours are totaly different!:)

im liking your work alot! keep em comin! cheers!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:30 AM
Great concepts, love the expressive face study of death, fantastic :)
best of luck and have loadsa fun, looking forward to your next update :wip: :applause: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 02:34 PM
wow, didnt know you were this good :P good luck with the contest :)

09 September 2005, 04:54 PM
wow, didnt know you were this good :P good luck with the contest :)

Now you know.
@Britta, have you decided which face to put on death?

09 September 2005, 05:48 AM
We're always here to support you Britta... and just waiting your next choice and for sure, your next update :thumbsup: c'mon :scream:

Rain Tree
09 September 2005, 07:48 AM
Lovely Sketch! I look forward to seeing more!

09 September 2005, 08:36 AM
looking real good there~love the death skecth,very good facial study:)keep it comingi'll be looping around:thumbsup:best of luck

10 October 2005, 12:44 PM
Really original concept Llynna! Plays with something everyone has an opinion about, death and knowing how you're going to die - it'll be really interesting to see this develop. Even from the sketches you can see how dynamic and full of life the picture is - *pokes* update soon!
