here am trying to puul out whatever running in my mind but not yet sure..but this is my rough idea.les see....

03-01-2006, 10:24 AM (

this is an rough idea from my little brain...idea is running for life from the feature to past...

So the character is running to a time portal? I don't see that immediately (I thought it was a flower) but I'm sure you can work that out and it's a good idea too. Escaping something can be quite a journey in itself. Keep going.

Hey naresh,

this is about the third time I get stuck on the overview page and could not help but taking a closer look.

I think that's due to the fact that there's a strong focal point already and the values are overall good in this early stage.

I find it hard, though, to read what is actually happening. It looks as if the character is carrying something big on his head. If that should not be the case you could avoid that by not having the edges of the two elements touch each other.

But if it is meant like that: what on earth is he/she carrying?

Let's see more...:thumbsup:

hi guys.. thanks for your coment and critics...this is an rough 5 munit digital sketch of my concept...and still am not so clear about the concept just to enter i did some rough and posted..

jtd and mr mu

the idea is-the middle character is a samll tree who is running for his servive from the techno world ,industrial world or we can say from the future..he is trying to find out his companion,nature,oxyzan etc this is what in my mind..i have to make sketch and pull out the thing from my mind...even if you guys can help me to do this it will great...i want to show the techno world without the place of sky i want to put a huge glass coverd the earth..huge building,robats,flying transport obejets etc etc..

03-03-2006, 02:30 PM
I was right. It is a flower/tree thing! Cool.

03-03-2006, 02:35 PM
Intersting concept. A difficulty will be to understand the picture. Will follow this thrread.

03-03-2006, 03:23 PM

Lovely little char design! :) and I'd go (MO) for the more pink/red background..

Keep it up!

03-03-2006, 05:21 PM
What adorable character designs! It would be fun to see a whole bunch of them on screen, what a shame to only have one. Ot to have one but only see the back of his hear. :) Can't wait to see how this turns out.
Good luck!

hey guys do you thinkg my concept is realy near to the the challenge them "the journey begins":rolleyes: am lil bit confuse...what do you think guys...
concept is--period is 2049 and the earth captured by technology and we may not need the elimments of nature.but one smal tree any how servived some where by somthing.(lets forget it where it come from)and he is trying to find out companion and his other nature eliments...for that he is running or we can say he begin his journey...

it's sound right?????????

04-01-2006, 09:45 PM
Hey Naresh,
I like the idea of the boy tree..really nice.I also belive very much in the power of simplicity and that's something that you've got ..but I just wanna say keep in mind that such an idea has to be delivered in a way that is MOVING..You need the viewer to feel the meaning maybe through the eyes of the boy tree or I don't know it's up to u.My name is Rooma and I'm a new commer..please come check out my work :)

04-02-2006, 10:44 AM
hey thanks a lot rooma...yeh excatly am also going to give the simplysity to my work.. ...i too love simple way to present idea...and still am struglin to get the visual.dont know i'll complite that b4 deadline or not:sad:..and sure i'll take care of the movment in the character...what ever i posted till now those are my very rough sketches...
will be update with final drawing very soon...


04-02-2006, 11:36 PM
How's it going with the visual? I hope you are progressing. well I've added some sketches to my thread and I would like you to take a look..I'm so confused and I am so open for suggestions.Looking forward to hearing from you.

thank you

04-06-2006, 06:24 AM
I couldn't find anything new in your thread yet so I assumed that you are working on the final piece or maybe another concept sketch..anyways goodluck and to be honest I think your idea is one of the best and most interesting that I've seen in about all of te others.But as I said before I need to see the struggle of the boy-tree! because the symbolism in a tree running in fear because technology in the future is taking its place and killing it is really great! and I fear if you don't show the tree's face that people won't get it or feel it immediately..but in the end it's your piece,and you know it better than me..maybe I'm not able to imagine what you have in mind don't be confused,okay?? :)

keep going's gonna be great really

all the best


04-06-2006, 07:01 PM
