Latest Update: Concept Sketch: Various Concepts (

03 March 2006, 06:39 AM (

Okay! I spent a lot of time doing concepts. I really want to find something that I feel personaly is the beginning of a journey for myself.

I guess a journey for me, would be to go to a magical castle where extraordinary things would happen. From my concepts, you can definitely see that I have some sort of a castle in the image. I really like the idea of a flying castle and the fact that it is flying makes it all the more magical because it's up far away where I can't go. Makes me want to find a way to reach for it and I can almost imagine myself in the foreground looking up at the amazing structure.

I think it's also important that there are a lot of little things that are following or trailing it like maybe birds or a trail of smoke or maybe a bunch of people in small aircrafts that are there to take a closer look. Having all those things makes it so much more fascinating and makes me feel like: "Why are there so many things following? I wonder what it is? Man I really want to go too!" It just makes it lively and just so much fun.

I like the two concepts on the top left and right the most because they are so much more fun and have a lot of potential to be explored. I can imagine a little boy or girl riding on a bird or a boy riding in a bicycle helicopter with a huge smile on his face because he gets to go along.

I'm glad I got a chance to really explore my concepts and I will probably narrow it down and come up with my final idea real soon.

Cool. Just be aware of "Takeshi's flying Castle" anime which could make your wonderfull image look quite similar.

Best regards and big respect
