Master and Servant 2D Entry: Eric Browning

Eric Browning has entered the Master and Servant 2D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Command prompt FINAL


Supervlieg, Jesterspawn, you guys are awesome- thanks for those suggestions. I could have used you last week! :)
Time is up for me so I picked one element to fix because it was the most alarming- the blending together of the two characters. Hopefully his helps.
The plants are a real sore spot- they really needed more research and work. Same with the clouds- and I actually had good ref for them that I just haven't been able to find. Crap. Time to let go.

Concept Sketch: Concept sketch from thumbnail



"Command Prompt" is the title, and here's my concept sketch. It is simply a big robot and his master, the master has died, and the robot waits for his next command.

Wow, I love that idea! Very emotional and right on with the theme. I loved your Space Opera piece and I'm sure this one will be amazing as well!

Oo! You're THAT ebrowning. . . I'll sit back and wait to be amazed. Loved your GSO entry as well and look forward to seeing you develop this idea. Very touching concept.

Concept Sketch: color comp



Working out the colors- I'm happy with the direction although I'll need to add some more saturated colors. I'll hit that tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

Brilliant

At the first glance and/or hear it first time sounds very traditional and cliched. BUT, you have made it already original by very first sketches; the name of the picture as "command prompt" and dare to portray something so familiar in an original scope of view and bounding it with a theme of "master and servant"; i can say "brillant" for it.

I think this piece is one of the shiny scenes of this challenge. From now on you are one of my favourites.

It's looking good, Eric! I kind of like the desaturated colors, as they add an appropriate feeling of melancholy to the piece. It's hard to tell exactly what you're going to be doing with the background yet... Will it just be a natural landscape? If it is, it might give the feeling that this guy just died in the middle of nowhere. On the other hand, destroyed cities in the background could lend the impression that there's no-one left alive, and no-one to give the robot any more commands. Both are interesting directions, I look forward to seeing where you go with it.

kuzgunoglu- thanks for that!

walrus-the background will be a natural landscape, I want it to have no signs of other people so it makes sense that no one else has stopped by to give the robot a new command. I'm going for breezy and pleasant- like sitting on a hillside somewhere along the California coast. While it may be heavy handed, I think it'll make a nice contrast against the dead guy.

Hi Eric

I like your idea a lot. Congratulations! I was thinking in a grave I saw in a cementery in Havana, Cuba, where I was born. A woman dead and her dog went to her grave and stood there. The family took it back home and it returned to the cementery, over and over, until it died. Amused by this, the family made an horizontal sculpture over the grave with the image of the lying woman and the dog sitted at her feet. So, about your work I think probably it could be even more dramatic that the master is lying dead in his bed with his servant in the same position waiting for an order.
