I wanted to represent a chaotic and futuristic scene, not sure If I got it, anyways Im going to try some ideas more before choosing one.

03 March 2006, 08:00 PM
I really like the perspective! Nice idea :)

03 March 2006, 08:03 PM
Ballo, mindofka,iamawizard, Demolus, Thanks a lot,

marcoracer: Thanks, I know was not very clear the concept, I think in this one is a bit more obvious, but still not very happy with it.

03 March 2006, 12:16 PM

03 March 2006, 07:03 PM

03 March 2006, 10:13 PM (

Another one.

03 March 2006, 12:23 AM (

another concept.

03 March 2006, 02:09 PM
Nigio, enialadam, Thanks for the comments.

Im not sure yet about the idea Im going to develop, I like the robots one, but I think Its so much static, at least in that sketch, aslo I like the idea of the suicide, because of the dramatism, and the evasion from the city, What do you think?

Thanks in advance.

03 March 2006, 02:17 PM
very nice watercolor result, nice idea, it's a cool work

03 March 2006, 09:35 AM
veyr impressed by the emotion and energy you are able to convey.. but then you are an animation student... think looking for that famous place is brilliant. go with that.. where you studying animation. one of my close friends is an animation graduate. studied in wales

keep it up

03 March 2006, 10:16 AM
Great concepts! I especially like Famous Place 1 and 4. The feel of motion in all of these is exciting. I agree that the famous place concept is the one you should go with, the tidbit of background info and the images so far make it sound like it could turn into something awesome.

03 March 2006, 02:19 AM
Come on man!! You know i like your concepts!!

03 March 2006, 08:02 PM (

"year 3256 a.c., the planet is in a situation of untenable total chaos, all the humanity was annihilated more than 600 years ago by the frightful troops of Grotnar, previously called K-046. The first robot created to lead and administer armed battalions. All the power and the wealth are in an insurmountable fortress called Grotebrok, where Grotnar and its multitudinal army of robots.lodge . Every one who live outside Grotebrok is condemned to the misery and to being captured and broken to be used like spare part of pieces for the troops of Grotnar. JP-32, the protagonist robot begins one desperate adventure by his own to try to finish with Grotnar. His anger is stronger than the fear that can be felt in his rubber eyes. The only thing which it must to his favor to be able to accede to the fortress is, the night and an old catapult.
The journey begins ".

grobouk, W!L, GrM, Basie, thanks a lot.:)

W!L: Im studying at the university of Wolverhampton.
I have decided what is the concept idea, Im going to develop the last one.

03 March 2006, 02:31 AM (

Another one.

03 March 2006, 11:12 PM
Buff! I like so much this last skecths, especially the colours!


03 March 2006, 11:37 PM
i think the idea of someone setting off to find a fabled forest more appealing than the launching of a guy into the city on a catapolt. the search is more journey-ish than the suicide mission.

i love the long perspective you had going and i think you should stay with the ideas that are more character driven. get up close on your character, but keep that frantic perspective and you'll be gold.

thanks for showing all the great concepts.

PS - i gotta get to work... :)
