this image reminds me of the words said by my fellow skateboarders many years ago that
"once a skater will always be a skater"

nice work

excellent idea, the image sticks completely to the topic.
It will be cool, if we can see Mamy in the crowd wearing this old clothes, and being completely exciting by the spectacle of his husband

Hey! Awesome concept! Really spectacular..

I dont think you should continue with the last one.. Your first one is more spectacular!

Coloring WIP: the crowd gathers

thanks for the comments compañeros. I think for a moment i'll stay with the moment of anticipation... to develop the characters, if nothing else.

Really cool idea!
I like your concept sketch with paps in the air.
Definetely your indulgence with the wacom on the background robs from the attention and the character is lost withing the fussy cityscape.
In the original sketch you have placed it better.
Lower the horizon line and let the action have the sky as bg, along with your nicely warped wide angle perspective of the skate ground.

Thanks very much for the encouragement and the advice. I'm persevering with both images, as I hope to use them both anyway - so I shall continue with the character development for now and move back to the action image after I've got the background/backstory to a point that I'm happy with.

Well, that's good to hear. I thought That the scene itself, as opposed to the setup for the scene, made for a more dramatic picture. More action to it, and a stunningly dramatic camera angle.btw, I find the grafitti right behind the man to be very distracting. I know you will be doing a lot more coloring and shading, but for now, he shoiuld be the easiest to read, not the hardest.

Good luck with the rest of it!

Coloring WIP: a few more spectators arrive...

...this scene is evidently going to get busier.

Hehe, great idea, very funny. Cool to hear you'll go on with both images, they each have their own strength..As for the 'spectacular' part, I think the action image has the most potential within the lines of this contest.
