I´m now searching some references for my spectacular image :)
I already did my concept sketch, but i´m not able to post it right now (no scanner) so then tomorrow i´ll take a shot with a digicam and post it, sorry for delay. For now i can only write about the history of the image.
-The spectacular power of fire -
I´ll try to bring my vision about the reaction of the primitive humans when they first saw the fire. It will be a cloudy day, almost night, with some thunders at the background lighting the scene. The place is somewhere near pequim and the primates are the Pithecanthropus erectus. I want to pass the feeling of the primates when they see the tree burning and an animal running because of the fire light.
I know it´s going to be very difficult to bring the facial expressions well done, but I´ll give my best in this contest. Hope you like it!! :thumbsup:
I will post some more information with the concept later.

It´s just a "funny version" concept. I´ll not expend too much time in drawing.

I like hands, so i first model the hand. It´s a base hand, it isn´t looking like a primate hand because i´ll modify it to make the other 3 primates. It´s just a base model.

Very good hand! The only thing that I will suggest is that you make the finger nails longer. They look like they were chewed down too much at the moment. Cool drawing too!

Hey gardogg, thanks for suggest!! I´ll fix it!! :thumbsup:

Hey nice work so far. The modeling is top notch! I like the concpet too. Not too long ago I saw that movie Quest for Fire again, it was on tv, so I sat and watched it. Great movie, the whole idea of the discovery of fire is pretty interesting to speculate about.

This model is looking very good so far. I can see the "ape/man" very easily. The only thing that I would suggest is that the mouth is too wide and the entire lower half of the face is a bit too wide as well.

The first time seeing fire I would imagine would have be a real site specially if you started it. The hand and the head models are looking good , how are you going to handle the hair Good luck with this.

Soapy - Thanks man!! Quest for fire it´s a great reference/inspiration, thanks again for remenber me!! :thumbsup: I´ll try to watch the movie one more time.
gardogg - I´ll post an update with a more thick lips, i agreed with you, thanks for critics! :bounce: About the lower half face, I did some search about the "man of pequim" and i found some interesting pics that showed his suposed face and a shot of his skull, i´m trying to keep the correct anatomy, but with a little bit of personal touch. Let´s see if you like the final result, ehehe :) (i hope so) :thumbsup:
Junpei - Thanks junpei!! You are the first who repair on that... anh... "thing" (thanks to call that "thing" of cat, ehehe) running out!!
Yongkiat - Nice to see you here yongkiat!! :) Maybe you can rent you elephant for me, so i can make a mammoth version of it to put on my scene!! ehehe :buttrock: :)
thierry2005 - Thanks man!! I hope to be abble to do a nice texture, lets see!
sunshinebetter - Ae pedro, td bem!! Valew pela força hein, agente se vê!! Shave and a hair cut on it!!!
mmoir - Thanks for critics mmoir! About the place, i´m trying to imagine somewhere in the china mountains, i´ll try to pass a personal idea of a place, maybe even a not so real like terrain, i don´t know yet. The hair will be a very difficult part of the process, I´ll take a lot of time on it.
