Latest Update: Concept Sketch: perspective tests (

09-05-2005, 11:12 PM (

Ok heres my first concept sketch. Ive got to work a bit on the perspective and the look of the bird, cause its got to look real "fountastic". Im also thinking of ways how to make the jungle (the left side of the image) more interesting, maybe ill add some maya temples or something like that.

As you can see, im not a great sketcher if it comes to perspective, so ill probably start "previzing" in 3d tommorow.

Cheers and good luck everyone!

Couldnt sleep so i did some bird doodles. I was also thinking about making the bird do something "spectacular"...something like breathing fire...but thats for tommorow

I like the birds.
I look forward to further developments

Best of luck

that could turn out really great and special! Good start!

Maybe the bird has photoflourecent feathers. That could be pretty cool, and is plausible. If it were in the deep dark jungle it may have a biological purpose and who is to say it is on earth?

Thanks for al the great replies guys!
Couldn't find time to work on it today, so more updates probably tommorow :)

Thats a lovely simple idea. looks like the bird is peeing in the lake though :)
hope you have fun with the challenge, best of luck
I love the little bird designs...

didn't do a lot today :) apart from some simple perspective testing.

I also thought about how to make the image more interesting: background stuff, maybe something cool about how the guy gets there, etc... i didnt get any "spectacular" :) ideas so thats something im going to work on tommorow...

Ive sketched out some ideas today of how to make the concept better and more interesting, the idea i got is that the city beneath the mountain is burned down, a storm of fire has raged over the land. The guy climbing the mountain has a big birdcage hanging on his belt....and then you see the bird...burping a little explosion.

Maybe ill even change the mountain in too a big tree....ill have to look what works best in the landscape

I'll probably post my final sketch tonight...
