Concept Sketch: pencil & paper composition



Hi, good luck every one.

This is the main preview on what I will work about :
The theme :
" To travel light is better than to travel heavy "
( sorry cause I litteraly translate from my native langage ... )

It represent a rich man who travel on his big snail with all his house ( thats why I thought to the snail... ) but very slow and not in contact with the element of his journey. He look jealously to an androgyne creature who his more fast playing with bird, have some plant in the hand...etc...etc...
I will make this image to transmit to every one (and particulary children of my family ) this concept to travel light , cause I hate to prepare a journey too much, it's a spring of sadness for me.

Now, I have to concept a lot of detail, cause I want some great concept for wear / architectures / Birds / Natures.

Feel free to let a message here to talk about with me, I will answer to each poeple. Comments are welcome !

Hi! Your sketch looks great and I love the concept. The only piece of advice I can think of for now would be to create a background that showed the scale of the characters and that looked just a bit more epic. Anyway, this is the very first sketch, so there's a lot of time for adjustments. I'm very impressed with the image so far. Good Luck!

I like your concept very much Deevad, but maybe now you should consider if this is the correct viewing angle, maybe a bit lower to transmit the idea of the scale of the snail, having a foreground and middleground, etc...
I think this is going to be a great image, keep it up.

GaeasHerald : Really good advice, I see that I don't have any point to juge the biggness of the snail... And this thing can be important. I will correct it.

Ramitxon : Sure ! Now I see only this ! why I put the point of view to the hight of the snail eyes ( may be cause it'sd the first thing I made ) . I will try adjustement of hight of element with photoshop before retrace them. Great advice !

beelow : Thanks ! Now, the hardness will be to keep the initial fresh of the drawing with intention and make adjustement. It's like to make circus with porcelain !

thanks ! thanks ! thanks ! a surprising welcome you made me for this challenge !
