Soooo many thnx to all of u who passed by and stoped to write a hello :)
I found couple of minutes of spare time to put down some ideas.. Nothing really defined yet, but at least something to put a thumbnail next to my thread, hehe..
The first sketch shows a steampunkish city/bulb/something lifting from the ground on the horizont (its obviously huge), and the second shows a man (mad scientist maybe) who has mechanical gloves attached to his hands, controling the giant robot in the background and stomping the city.. the robot is still just a first pass, not yet designed.

So much for now!

11 November 2008, 02:09 PM
hehe I like the second sketch

and hi there and good luck!! =)

( I like your self-portrait of your blog ;) )

11 November 2008, 02:54 PM

Hey Blaz,

Really glad that you joined to this steamboat cruise :D Extra steam for this challenge, great!! :D

Cool first concepts and sketches, like a lot the composition on both, is difficult to me to say what idea like more :) Cant wait to see more updates and cool ideas on your concept :) Good luck and following the development of your work. Cheers!! :beer:

11 November 2008, 10:10 PM

11 November 2008, 12:07 AM
gonna be dope.

11 November 2008, 02:54 PM
hey my dear friends! Thank you for the feedback :) I know that those first sketches didnt show much, so I was thinking how could I bring them a bit further, incorporate them into a story and somekind of myth.


So here it is.. I'll be doing a painting based on Aladdins magic lamp and his Genie. Im not sure yet, if the painting will be set into arabic environment, and the magic lamp could also be some sort of petroleum lamp or maybe even a torch like device.. need to do some research what was used in 1800-1900's :)

The Genie will ofcourse be a giant machine :twisted:

Some sketches coming soon!

11 November 2008, 03:02 PM
Ha! I think that's a pretty badass idea man, I dig it:thumbsup:

11 November 2008, 04:54 PM
You can get some cool image from the big Genie, yes ;)

11 November 2008, 12:24 PM
need more ninja!!

11 November 2008, 12:27 PM
:wavey: Blaz,

How about making Aladdin the machine instead. :twisted: What sort of wishes would a machine ask for? That could be a funny twist in the story....

11 November 2008, 03:07 PM
Yep pretty kickass idea indeed.Sounds like fun man!Good luck & ...more!:D

11 November 2008, 12:41 AM

Thank you so much guys for all the support, but once again, I'll have to cancel my participation :/ Too many payed projects at the moment, and I know that I wouldn't be able to finish this piece in time.. It was nice chating with you, and I can't wait to see what will you come up with at the end :) GOOD LUCK TO ALL and I hope the time will be on my side in the next challenge!
