This first idea is to make a legendary jazz band with steampunk instruments on an epic gig.
Nothing too fancy yet, but i really think i'll go with the steam and music mix.

Looking for some music myths and legends i found some very interesting stories of blues legends (that may apply to jazz too), and some other about classical compositors such as Beethoven, Bach and Mozart.

I will try to work more on something around this idea. If anyone knows any musical myth, i'll be very glad to know about it.

Hey Orlando,

Cool idea. I'll be on the lookout for some interesting Musical Myths and Legends. You could have pan and his flute, and have a backup Jazz band. Maybe shoot for a humerous angle. Have fun with it. Best of luck.
p.s. Welcome aboard!

I decide to go another way, i wasn't very confident with the musical myth, so i got some books, talk to some people, and now i'll go with Ponce DeLéon (the spanish conqueror) and his obsession for the Fountain of Youth.
This is my first concept on DeLéon.

Hey Sasquatch, thanks, i've thought of Pan and some other, but i wasn't sure about it, so i changed to another myth. Although, a jazz myth still flows around the ideas in my head...

Cool first idea! I love Forum name(Jazmzngr = Jazz Messenger)

I like that idea cause I think there is a lot you can do with it. Altho the Fountain of youth is a great idea. Look forward to seeing more!

I admit I wanted to see the jazz myth, but the one you have done is really cool to!

best wishes! ^^

So, this is my first try on a scene showing the spanish explorer finding the Steam Fountain of Youth.
Still have to work a little more on the composition, any advice is welcome.

jazmzngr & PirataDandi: Yeah...the jazz myth was a cool idea i guess...although i wasn't confident about it...pushing it knowing that i wasn't on the right track is kind of i decide to go another direction, anyway, maybe i can do the jazz myth in the future as a portfolio piece. Thanks for your comments.

An update on the last shot. A color test on the scene, trying to set a mood.

hey that's pretty interesting... fountain of youth.. for me, i think the green from the surrounding area somewhat pops out equally with the fountain. Maybe makeing the fountain glow more would have a "mystical" feel to it? but that's my 2 cents.

valkrie: Thanks. I agree 100% with you, that was just a first color test and my goal is exactly this, to make it more mystical, i'll do what you suggested.
