Very cool concept!

Like everyone said,the perspective and pose are really cool on this.

I'm curious though. Did she grab the string intentionally, to "Catch the fisherman" or did she just take the bait and now the fisherman are going to have a heck of a time pulling her in?

This is very cool- I'm sort of missing the 'strange behaviour' part of it though...maybe if you put her alongside some 'regular' fish, then it would seem a bit more of an oddity- right now, it's in the realm of the fantastic so this isn't really all that unbelievable. It needs a little more conceptual contrast!

Having said that.....sweet sketch!

Geta-Ve- Thanks man!:)

Ramitxon- Thank you very much sir!:thumbsup:

Slav- Lol, ok man! thank you:)

Goro- Hey man! Thank you:D

Malanjo-Thanks mate! you got some pretty good ideas so get to work!:scream:

Zephyrpower- thanks man! well iguess when i did the sketch i was aiming for your 2nd idea, but the first could work very well.

paperclip - Thanks! i have to agree with you, i just liked so much the idea that came to me i put it on "paper", but i want it to be clear, your idea is quite helpfull i should make the scene less "fantastic realm" with other fish mixed and more casual, lets see what comes out:thumbsup: thanks for the imput

see you soon

gimme a wooden leg and call me ahab!

This one suites the concept better, what do you think!? if the image is not to clear the octopus are trying to save the little octopus boy!

07 July 2007, 05:12 PM (

this one could be very funny.

07 July 2007, 08:16 PM
your concept sketches look awesome!!

i like the octo-monster one so far...the dog idea is pretty good too!! Cant wait to see more!

07 July 2007, 08:25 AM
nice sketchs. I find the last concept really interesting and original.
Good luck

07 July 2007, 10:23 PM
I like the dog idea best. Good luck.

07 July 2007, 10:39 PM
The composition of the octopus girl is really dynamic and it's a great sketch. I think you should go with it, although the dog perhaps carries off the "strange behaviour" title better. Tough call.. Octopus for me, purely a it has a better underlying story

07 July 2007, 10:41 PM
I like the dog concept more than the octopus one, it feels more like the theme. You'll have to be clear so the dog doesn't look like a float or something from a parade, maybe some buildings are trashed from it bumping them... or a giant pile of poo and a construction truck trying to clean it up haha!

good luck, I think you're onto something.

07 July 2007, 10:41 PM
I love your sketches, as well as your concepts, they are good! I'll keep watching to see where you take this.

07 July 2007, 07:29 AM
Very cool concept the one with the megadog. I really like it at this stage and I would want to see it finished. Cool!

07 July 2007, 07:48 AM

07 July 2007, 09:45 AM

07 July 2007, 11:00 AM

07 July 2007, 07:17 PM

07 July 2007, 09:01 AM

07 July 2007, 09:14 AM
