View Full Version : Little dream composition WIP

04 April 2002, 03:46 AM
Here's something I'm working on ...

Any feedback would be appreciated ... compositional issues, suggestions for colouring approaches, layout ...

I'm going to try and finish this over the course of the next month ..

I'm not happy with the BG on the clean lineart version of the boy ..

And I'm debating whether or not to keep the pencil art in the riverbed version the way it is (with a few tweaks)

But we'll see.

Cheers all.

nice idea, but I think I'd make the chains in the 'real' world coincide more with the trees and vines in the 'dream' world. Kind of like in the Maxx when he kept shifting realities.

Is the picture talking about a man who's dreaming about being a boy in a fantasy land??? cuz if yes, then it's awesome :) it is very nicely portrayed.

The more coincidences between the worlds, the better. nice sketch! :)

Yeah ... I think I agree with using the chains like the trees ... but I've been thinking about turning the boy in the hospital gown into an android hooked into all kinds of matrix-style wiring and tubing .... and the wiring would mimic the movement of the trees ...

Also ... the bar code on the side of the kid's head ... I think it's giving the impression of hair ... a couple of people have told me that it makes him look like a man ...

By the way, they're both boys of the same age dreaming about each other .... I thought making one of them an android would be nice and Asimov-esque ....


Thanks again guys ...

I think android.... not.
The barcode does look alot like hair, and the shadow below his nose looks a bit like a mustasch.
