Latest Update: Concept Sketch: The Funeral: Coloring Sketch (

03 March 2006, 01:59 PM (

An old man finally finished his path in our world and went on to his journey of eternity. The picture depicts the scene of his funeral. Many people who respected and loved him before came to say farewell to him.

After the end of his life, his soul could travel all over the universe, witness all kinds of events----that's a long and peaceful journey.

This is my first conceptual sketch on colors, trying to imitate the atomsphere of an old cathedral. There is some candle burning in the foreground and some sky light from the ceiling. However it's about a peaceful journey, when I was drawing this and thought about death, I felt a bit afraid. I think there shouldn't be only religious holiness in this pic, but also some respect to the law of life and death. I will set this as my aim of the challenge.

glad i catch this in the beginning, this is a beautifull and promissing concept approching the topic from a deep and serious way. I like the first teasing colors you show here, looking forward to how this develops. keep up the great work :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

wonderful concept sketch.

i think you may have to expand your composition if you want to show that many people are visiting him. right now it seams a very lonely scene between him and one who could be assumed to be a widow or mother or even priest (or equivalent).

i'm really digging what you got so far. looking forward to seeing it progress.
