playing with more ideas at the moment , this one is along the lines of discoverers going on a journey type thing.

03 March 2006, 12:49 AM
The flat colors sets the mood in these quick sketches... Nice touch!


03 March 2006, 12:51 AM
I really like that latest concept! It's really mysterious looking, and quite filmic.

Keep it up!

03 March 2006, 01:19 AM
Thanks! more on the way.

03 March 2006, 02:03 AM (

more sketches on the way , playing with ideas for how the people will look in that second mood sketch.

03 March 2006, 05:10 AM
Still playing with ideas and mood , none of these are final by any means.

03 March 2006, 05:13 AM
I like all three concepts. It'll be hard to choose a favorite.

03 March 2006, 05:17 AM
Good luck, Sheep! :)

03 March 2006, 05:27 AM
I love the theme Ali, I hope we can finish or at least make "some" progress this time :)
good luck!

03 March 2006, 05:30 AM

03 March 2006, 06:32 AM
goodmorning ALi,

03 March 2006, 06:58 AM (

doing more concepts to figure out how the chars will look. I'll post the story soon.

03 March 2006, 07:15 AM
hey ali,

nice sketches, none of them realy gives me the whole "journy" concept. keep up the good work.

03 March 2006, 07:37 AM
goodluck sheep~keep those sketches coming~

03 March 2006, 07:51 AM
yea once I post the story I hope it'll make more sense. Right now I am just having fun with some of the designs i have in mind. :)

03 March 2006, 08:35 AM
wow i love the last comncept youve posted, very dramatic scene!

03 March 2006, 08:41 AM
Hey Ali, I love your sketches!

Good luck:)

03 March 2006, 08:42 AM
Really like the sketches so far!

Shouldn't they be on snowboards? :p

03 March 2006, 11:36 AM
Nice to see some concepts, i like the previous moods you posted and the "journeyman" characters, nice balance between all 3 characters... I'm wondering how the final concept will look but it's a cool beginning so far, keep it up man !

03 March 2006, 01:06 PM
You got great ideas, want to see more...:scream:

03 March 2006, 04:19 PM
Thanks guys! more concepts coming today. Hope to finish up the story I have in mind for it and post it too.

03 March 2006, 06:16 PM
:) Hice concept sketches,
waitin for more.

03 March 2006, 01:59 AM
Concepts are looking go. I definitely like the bulky astronaut character. He has a more natural look than the other one.


03 March 2006, 09:14 PM
Just had quick search around your concepts. Especially love the mood of second scene sketch with that black foreground and folks. :thumbsup: Keep it up!

03 March 2006, 05:46 AM
Nice sketches Sheep! Good luck in this! :thumbsup:

Cheers, :)

I have some ideas for a robot helper kinda thing to help the journeyman on their journeys. Will be more detailed in the story but for now just playing with designs , I dont like the one above much so I have to do some more sketches and start modeling soon.

Thanks for all the comments!

03 March 2006, 08:17 AM
great sketching of the helper Ali. Maybe he could show him a map to where to go :D nice little robot guy :D

03 March 2006, 12:09 AM
Second concept (the one with City behind) i like more..and i also like the last Design for the characters..Slim and more easy to move ...I think u can move also a bit closer to the hill on that concept and "send the City far behind too...:)

03 March 2006, 05:48 AM
Great sketches. I'm on board.

03 March 2006, 03:18 AM (

started modeling the journeyman. early wip of their helmet.

03 March 2006, 03:28 AM
Looking good:)

03 March 2006, 07:55 AM

adding more detail..

03 March 2006, 08:10 AM
Very Interesting, kind of looks like the Combine in the white suits from Half Life 2, but not really. look forward to seeing more.

03 March 2006, 12:24 PM
Hey nice modeling start Ali, like the circle shaped eye :)

Looking forward for more...

03 March 2006, 07:58 PM
