Hi yep its about art but also about new friends....goodluck and looking forward to what ideas you have :arteest:

This first concept shows archaeologists base jumping (or about to)into an otherwise unreachable castle ruins to set up an excavation site. I'm going to do another concept based on this with a higher view looking down on the actual ruins in the mountain, probably with some jumpers already in freefall. I may end up scrapping the it, but it was the first decent idea i've had, and i wanted to post something :)

09 September 2005, 02:34 PM
i really like the idea of the jump to the old ruins :). i think it is a good theme and with some spectacular lighning it will be, well spectacular *gg+

looking forward to the next sketch with the men already jumping.

I wanted to just try and get the lighting right in this. I think I might spread the ruins all over the mountain side and up to the point of the jumper to intensify the perspective. I'll try that out in the next sketch. But still playing with another idea which i'll post over the weekend. Thanks for any feedback :)

09 September 2005, 03:44 PM
most intense. I like the rough pose of the jumper and Nice movement in the background already - have a good weekend :)

09 September 2005, 10:56 PM
Hi there :)

Nice idea, the higher view would look good and maybe making the castle more remote. Maybe sitting on a pedistal with all the bridges broken that used to lead to it. just a thought ...great stuff :thumbsup:

Thanks for the replies everyone! and cheers for the idea element 5! :)

An idea for how the ruins will look.

09 September 2005, 02:12 PM
The ruins look great, good idea too. Looking forward to seeing how you get on :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:22 PM
In my opinion, ruins seems to be the best from all concepts. I can't say too much now. Im looking foward to see more.

Good luck

Thanks baron and pawlack ! :D

Thinking about having the ruins already being excavated and researched by a team of archaeologists. Its night time and they are busy working away as a new member of the team jumps down. In this concept I had the idea that they set up torches to guide their way to their base camp/tents. I'll probably use a similar perspective to the second concept I posted, but its going to be just as the moon rises and different sections of the ruins will be lit up by fires/torches. The reason they dont have good lighting equipment is because its too heavy to take with them when they jump:)

09 September 2005, 05:32 AM
yeah i think 'ruin' looks best out of all the concepts,but i like the composition for the archaeologists base jump.:scream:

09 September 2005, 05:44 AM
nice sketches... good luck:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 08:29 AM
cool concept.nice sketch too.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 11:32 AM
Really like the base camp concept sketch. Reminds me of climbing Mt Fuji at night. I never imagined I would be in a queue climbing up a mountain. Everyones torches highlighting the zig-zag path up the mountain.

Don't know who these guys are below but they have a good crowd pic, on the climb down.
"Landscape down from the top."

Good luck!

An idea for how the ruins will look.

Now I do like the look of this.....:)

09 September 2005, 01:30 PM
Thanks Sh@ke! :D I quite liked the base jump pic too, could go back to that if I can make the view look more spectacular.

Thanks for your replies Duckalator and xric! much appreciated!:thumbsup:

Cheers for the link ShichiFukujin!:) The picture you mention does look cool! I will definately use that at some point in my concepts.

Now I do like the look of this.....:)

Well, it was your idea :D... thanks again everyone!

09 September 2005, 01:43 PM

09 September 2005, 05:41 PM
Hey Dude, doing the 2d thing i see.... like the concept, but think you sould doa a massive demon whisping in the clouds.... that would be soooooo cool...

Catch ya later mate...

09 September 2005, 02:29 PM

Thinking about moving the idea back about 800 years to the dark ages. Not really sure where this is going, but I liked the idea of the ruins, but wanted to add in an event to link in with the theme of the challenge more, just having base jumpers isnt really that spectacular. So this concept is just a quick idea for some monks who would be living in the ruins or maybe a less runined castle. May keep this purely historical, but might have to merge into fantasy a bit to allow me to do what I want. The monks would have either discovered the ruins in their search for a secluded place or they could be living there and the castle is in the process of getting destroyed by something. or maybe something else....i'll carry on thinking.

09 September 2005, 01:18 PM
nice concept look forward to up dates

09 September 2005, 01:21 PM
I like the idea of them discovering ruins. Good luck.

10 October 2005, 08:38 PM
hey, your last idea sounds interesting.... could be great!!! keep it up man!:thumbsup:

10 October 2005, 09:02 PM
Thanks again for the replies! Been pretty busy/tired lately so I havent had much chance to come here. Hopefully get something more done this week and I might even change the piece completely.
