Here's another concept-Off to America: This one isn't as good as the first- I think it needs more mice or maybe a different type of creature and give them more bags and stuff...I like the ship though..and the perspective. Maybe just changing the mice would be enough? It's another concept anyway. It definitely needs more dynamicism.

squib: When I fek up, I fek up in style..wait n see..!

Kico: I stole some of rebecca's HYPERACTIVE potion

Rudeone: I agree with you, the huggers are one of my favorite detail, reminds me of when you go to airports or railway stations, you always get the teary lovers...hmm..that gives me another idea for a concept. Thanks very much!

Becca: hey, new things to think about- the specific area of interest. Hmm.

Aggie: cheers! I have another idea for a concept with greek stuff, I bet you'll like that. Agamemnon...Hector..Priam..!

Posh: Me too! Aladdin's cave and 1001 arabian tales always were my favorite type of stories, they're so well written and really captivate you. I think I may check out one or two out of the library, any suggestions would be great.

Michael: Ooh, good idea, but I don't wan to loose too much of the perspective. I'll mess around and see what comes up.

Looking good, Theresa, off to a great start!
As for the first sketch, I love the concept. I think some stronger silhouettes could help it to read more clearly: Everything ges a little jumbled in the middle.

This 2nd one is good too. I think the ship could look a bit bigger, but making the deck line curve upwards instead of down, but then you wouldn't see as much of the deck itself.

As for the question you asked in my thread, I think in the end noone's going to worry too much about whether you use small creatures or not. They've never been real sticklers about being too perfectly on-theme in the past as long as the art itself was solid. I mean, as long as someone can look at it and say, "yep it fits the 2 words 'Journey Begins,' you'll be fine." So don't stress about the mice.

Besides, you can't do mice, I'm sketching mice. :-P

Interesting ideas.
So far, I really like the 1st concept the best (I loved 1001 Arabian Tales); the other is ok, but reminds me too much of An Americal Tail.

Concept Sketch: concept sketch #3



Another concept- centered around just two people in a mountainous area, preparing to climb the mountain. It's rather solitary and that's the atmosphere I wanted- they're sipping the last hasty cups of coffee (kettle will be in front of them, being heated up by a firestick in a metal can, shielded from the wind.)before setting off up the mountain. There'd be a lot more accessories like gourds, maps and so on.

Update!

Skewed the perspective, dramatised the lighting:

theresa!

you are intimidatingly productive... 3 great concepts!

can't type too much right now, because I am wearing a sock and my daughters hat on my left hand to keep it warm and prevent carpal tunnel from playing too much guitar (I can feel it comin... )


whew, til tomorrow.

Nice job there Spanky - I find the skewed perspective a little distracting to the image though, IMHO the first one for some reason just looked better. I think Becca owe's you a gold star for all this practise with values too! You're much better at it that I was hah, I never even showed my (one) result

Keep 'em coming!

That's one of the reasons why this is 'concepts' week, also known as 'values' week.

I'm killing two birds with one stone, lol. Or as rebecca would say, ROFLMIAO!

p.s - It snowed today! Hands up everyone who has snow at their place. Isn't it great?

p.p.s- updated again...expect another new concept in the morning, I'm gonna have plenty of cheese before I go to bed!
