09 September 2005, 03:14 PM (

ok this is my first idea for this challenge. im just doing some sketches. i hope you guys enjoy it :)

Is a war and the ship on the background is shoting a nuclear misile, and this fighters have to stop that

09 September 2005, 03:55 PM
wow dude! I for one do not like "battle images" but this has some good karma around it :>

And always nice to see drafts that look good with only few lines init. :)

And good luck for the challenge!

09 September 2005, 04:37 PM

09 September 2005, 06:44 PM

09 September 2005, 06:45 PM

Hey guys, i did this concepts to see what colors im going to use, if i decide to go whit this image, but, i was thinking about the format.. so I did this 2 paintings. I like the vertical one, what do you guys think ?

09 September 2005, 09:36 PM
not sure which i like best,but those colours are damn nice!

09 September 2005, 09:41 PM
looking good! I like the colours and the concept so far. nice work good luck with the progress!

09 September 2005, 09:44 PM
I like the vertical one best. Good colours and those vapour trails are cool. Good luck in the challenge.

09 September 2005, 09:49 PM (

ok this is the image a little bit bigger so you guys can see. :)

09 September 2005, 09:51 PM
the water looks very realistic,use ref?

09 September 2005, 09:52 PM
Cool idea. Somewhat Ryan Church-ish, but I think that fits. I like the horizontal one personally; because it hightlights the 'hero' jet and implies horizontal speed.

Good luck.

09 September 2005, 10:22 PM
yes i use some reference to paint the water, i didnt what colors to use...
that is just an idea , ill try to do some other concepts...

09 September 2005, 10:33 PM

Nice colors and good concept!

Good luck! :)

09 September 2005, 03:46 AM (

i decide to create my own aircraft for this image and not use a real one.. cuz this image talks about future . hope you like it.. see you

09 September 2005, 06:42 AM
Nice start :thumbsup: I will follow this...

Good luck

09 September 2005, 07:38 AM
nice,u even came out with some color sketch.really nice,like i mentioned lst nite,it has the pearl harbour feeling.the latest sketch for the aircraft looks good,just that the left wing seems alil too bend upwards~keep them coming jesus~:thumbsup:and good luck

09 September 2005, 01:02 PM
Great start and so quick, I like the sketches and the perspective. The fighter jets pinpoints my eye directly to the navy ship. Maybe a landscape format would suit this type of action sequence. Good luck!

09 September 2005, 01:32 PM
while I do prefer the horizontal more, I think both choices works great here. Nothing special to crit here at the moment, excpet that straight smoke coming out from the second destroyed ship in the back... it just doesnt seem natural and doesnt flow with the dynamic that the whole pic goes with. other than that, great entry :) good luck!

09 September 2005, 03:20 PM (

this is another idea for the image i hope you guys like it. maybe ill try to make it look more like some kind of poster and not a comic

09 September 2005, 04:05 PM
wow man.. u rock !! nice to c u here.. best luck.. :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 06:57 PM
interesting concept.:thumbsup:
good luck.

09 September 2005, 07:12 AM
Yeah i gotta say i think i prefer the horizontal one as well. Other than the reasons mentioned by chrisThatGuy, i think the boats look more isolated in the horizontal composition. Like they are alone at sea with no help coming.
But both compositions definately work

Spectacular ! a clon girl wakes up in the middle of a Surgery and see herselft at one side and smile. the doctors have learn a lesson of life...

09 September 2005, 01:49 PM (

Spectacular beast of 700 meters of length attacks military ships in the pacific ocean, military forces meet obliged to destroy own ships and try to neutralize the beast using whatever is necesary. It is suspected that the appearance of this beast is related to the earthquake that happend last weeks in latin american coasts. The world is worried about the situation, are afraid about the existence of more of this creatures,religious movements say that the end of the world is coming

09 September 2005, 02:38 PM
Buena suerte compaŮero!:)


09 September 2005, 08:43 PM
si buena suerte! con que idea te vas a quedar?


09 September 2005, 06:51 PM (

ok my story is gonna be something like few kids that are very boredn and then comes a girl, very pretty. and the kids ask her if she is an angel, and the girl says, im not an angel am an artist.. what kind of artist? - ask one of the kids.. and the girl sayam an artist of happines. you wanna see a trick?--- and this is what happends the ice creamvehicle crash and all the ice cream comes out and the kids start paling on it. the girl goes away whitout they notice.___ sorry about my english is very bad jejeje

09 September 2005, 09:16 PM (

ok this is my concept. as i explain the story of the image before.. but i think ill try to make diferent poses for the girl and kids to explain better the idea, i hope you enjoy it

09 September 2005, 11:53 PM
very nice line art, I like the battle concept and the way is painted,
good luck

09 September 2005, 01:55 AM
hey good luck

09 September 2005, 02:04 AM
the latest concept is very cute. but i guess it would help to show a slight bit of more relation between the girls magic and the metling icecream to illustrate the story :) keep on goin Jesus!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:21 PM (

ok my new concept is liek some kind of wild races, and this girl had an accident. the camera that every vehicle have get out same like her, spining on the air, and this is a frame of the video recorded at that time. you can see that the girl saw the camera in her last minutes, and the explosion is going up, cuz the road is upside down . im thinking in put another girl falling up there. i hope you like it. byep

09 September 2005, 02:04 AM (

ok this is the line art of my image, jeje finaly i found an idea that i like. good luck to everybody, ill start painting as soon as posible. have funn!!

09 September 2005, 12:08 PM
Nice work Jesus:) youre doing great,and hope you find the right concept.
Best of luck!

09 September 2005, 01:33 PM
hmmm, you have quite the array of concepts it seems. I like the idea of the racecar (last one) most but your main character seems a bit too "flat?". What I mean is it would be neat if his body was contourting even more, like their is more impact to the fall. I can see you are going to pull off something good so best of luck getting to the finish!

09 September 2005, 04:33 PM (

Ok this is the concept of one of the girls, the most important. , i just wanted to create an image that help me tell my story better... good luck everybody

09 September 2005, 05:34 PM
Excellent character design, I'm doing a vaguely similar future-sport thing too & I reckon this is the idea you should stick with & develop. You've inspired me to go back & update my costume designs to something more futuristic looking & asymmetrical!

09 September 2005, 01:34 AM
cool,u even design the character for the concept~i lke where u are heading now,keep it going:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 03:14 AM (

ok i did another girl in the race...this is the final line art ive done. i already start whit the painting but i didnt have time to update the thread. so ill do it right now sorry!! =)

09 September 2005, 03:17 AM (

ok, this are just basic colors, i already paint some of the background but i still thinking in what colors to use...

09 September 2005, 03:19 AM (

jeej ok, i was going to do just the face to test, but i coundt stop , =) i did some of the helmet and the shoulders the background still the same as it was. gotta take attention to that. see you guys , have fun...

09 September 2005, 06:43 PM
wow!!:bounce: excellent concept and painting!truely spectacular.:applause:
can't wait for more.cheers.:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 09:11 PM
hi buddy! very nice development here.. I see that u went with that sport race concept and I think u took the right choice :) there is some very nice painting going on, but I think that the back girl, the one that is involved in an accident, should take more dynamic pose. At the moment there isnt a feeling of falling, more like flying around. If u understand what I wanna to say.. some very convincing falls if may I show (just as suggestions):

keep up the good work man! :)

09 September 2005, 10:55 PM
awesome headstart mate! wowies! love the eyes and your characterdesigns kick ass. very cool! the composition has a great angle, so keeep it your pace. godspeed and go go go!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

09 September 2005, 11:24 AM
love the latest post of yours, love the coloring on the face,nice:) ... may be you need to throw some good amount of light and shade around..a lot of dynamic lighting may be..
also I was thinking me be If you could give a subject to it,, um like...a cop and a thief chase..whatever.... Its already rocking buddy:buttrock: ,,few more miles to go..:) best of luck!:thumbsup:

09 September 2005, 12:37 PM
Hey, there, Genesisa! I love what you're doing so far. Great layout, I love the setting camera angle you chose. As for the crash, NinjaAssn has some very good points (as he always does.) I would take it one step further: If it's futuristic ultra-high-speed racing, then maybe the crash should be more... spectacular? I'm thinking more like a Pod Racer from Star Wars: Episode 1 getting into a crash: Big boom. You may be looking for something more understated, but think of the theme! ;)

Also, I know it's early in development, so I hope you don't mind my pointing it out, but the woman's face isn't quite working for me. The textures and detail you've put into it are good, and make it feel as though you're shooting for more of a realistic approach. However, the anatomy doesn't for me match the level of detail in the rendering style. Her face feels too broad, the eyes a bit too far apart. They are proportions that would maybe work better with a less realistic approach, but if you're shooting for a more naturalistc feel, consider backing up and cementing the proportions first.
Hope you don't mind my suggesting that.

Anyhow, great piece, good luck with it!


11 November 2005, 12:16 PM (

this is a little bit more of coloring. i been very busy at work and personal stuff, i hope you like how its coming.

11 November 2005, 03:02 PM (

ok i did some changes on the background cuz the perspective was looking kinda wierd and not very much realistic. i paint a little of the player of the other team. and i still thinking how that ball should be. anyway i hope you like how this is going, thanks guys see you.

11 November 2005, 12:31 AM
I had not seen this in a while, it has developed wonderfully. Keep it up!

11 November 2005, 01:13 PM (

jeje ok guys, really sorry but this is the way i work. i like to do whatever is necesary to make a better image. normaly i dont end whit the same image that i had at the begining in the line art. :) i hope you guys like it. see ya

11 November 2005, 08:41 PM (

this is almost what i got for the final image, just have to put some details in some parts and thats it. i hope you enjoi.

11 November 2005, 11:37 PM
looking awesome Jesus, great action, great designs and poses. Very good luck :)

11 November 2005, 08:54 AM
I haven't seen this work before. Great. Nice angle, very spectacular.

11 November 2005, 09:40 PM
superb man! I wasnt here for a long time, and a lot has changed. Love most of the new updates, the grass in the first plan (nice touch), the dynamic and all that, but I dont know about the ball.. I was looking at it for a while asking myself whats wrong or what bothers me about it, and when I checked ur previous submissions I got it.. Those strikes on it dont work so well. The green version of it from the previous stage still works ok, but that last one just vanished in the background. Try making some sort of plastic ball, no need to go so classic as its the real one. Only my opinion ofcorz :) good luck!

11 November 2005, 05:32 PM
Hey Mate,

the all over is amazing. i have a slight crit on the main girl.
as i said in the chat a few days ago, i still think the left eye is slightly off (too far left), the face seems not to match with the helmet in perspective somehow.
the eyes also seem not to focus on the ball.

keep up the great work, looking forward to your next update :)

11 November 2005, 09:41 PM
:applause: Glad to see you got to finish it! Way to go, felicitaciones!

Mario: Hahaha, hi.

John.: Please. Tell us the story, how this all began? What I know is just that you where in a ABBI game, it was huge, people tell me that it was actually stressful, the ThundeReds leading the game then the Yellow Owls. Everybody said it was crazy!!

John: Hahaha YEAH!! I know what you mean, those guys are crazy.

Mario: Yeah, and he was screaming and acting like crazy!! When Alinky jump to Mekitís bike. I donít remember where the ThundeRed biker was at that moment, he is the one that had to chase Meikit so she couldnít catch the ballÖ anyway I donít know how, but Meikit did something with her feet, on the grass, and made the bike jump, the ThundeRed fan beside me, was so excited, that he hit my hand and I through the camera to the field!! When the game ended I jumped to the field and took my camera. Everybody was screaming and kinda mad, cuz the Yellow Owls had won, and there where more ThundeRedís Fan so, hehe I left cuz I didnít want to be there when the fight starts! When I got home and download the pictures to my computer and... Surprise!! There was this AMAZING picture!! I was like: OMG I canít not believe this!! Maybe I just pressed the timer button on the camera when I lost it, donít know but it was incredible!
