So, here we go, this is a realy early concept, a young grass elf mage escorting an elder. Right now, the young ones walking the old one to the cats, kinda like horses but smaller and fuzzy-like :p My cat mysteriously vanished before I could use her as a model though >.> Ahh well, I'll post it later. Please do comment, first time I try to pull a stunt like this :)

nice sketches,do u have a story in mind??

03-07-2006, 07:45 PM
Well, I do... I'll post it later on toningt, when my line art and basic colours are finally ready.

OK, this is the final concept (for now), I'll probably change some elements, but this is the composition I liked best.

Heres the basic story. These are three students at some school for fantasy national security whatever. Narena (short for Lady Nareniala ), the impulsive redhead and leader of the three heard rumour of a heroe's challenge, a quests lets say to find ... uhm... dunno yet :p.. anyways, she wants to find "the thing" and decides to sneak out of the academy. Sanu, the battlemage who's the calm, friendly guy, can't talk her out of it, so he comes with her to make she doens't get her in to much trouble. Jerad the monk is Sanu's best friend, he's rather clumsy, the black sheep. He for one really doen't wanna go, but where Sanu is, Jerad will soon follow.

The trio doesn't know that the whole find the "thing" quest is just an evil scheme made by the bad guy to... let's say "kidnap" Lady Nareniala. One of his henchmen already keeps an eye on them from above.

Any comments or crits are welcome as always ^^

Hi Faras,

nice sketches here. The Story sounds promisingly and interesting. Keep UP the good work, and I'm waiting for Coloring.

I've had a sereis of bad luck, to sul it up, had a hardware virus, comuer totally useless, had to get my hands on another one, did so, found out my work was totally erased and I have no more registered photoshop cs at hand. One good thing though, painer works again!

I'm going to restart in painter, so please wait for colour or anything else untill I have salvaged anything regarding this challenge.


03-12-2006, 06:08 PM
I really like your idea. Interesting concepts so far, nice work!!

Hey everyone. Finalle was able to get the not-so-new computerup and running. I lost all my stuff, so I decided to make this new concept, with a hint of how colours should be. Story hasn't change much, only the characters are "running" this time.

03-15-2006, 08:48 PM (

Heres a concept of the somewhat improved Sanu. ( This was done in photoshop, although I intend to use painter mostly.
