Thanks , I hope I will upload many step and frequently to make this thread the more alive possible. Thanks again

Quote: marcoracer : Great start David! I'd just bring the human/elf forward a little more in the composition. Even if the snail is important to the journey, some part must be dominant.. The alternative is to bring the snail forward, making him and everything on his back the main focus. Then add a few human/elfs or other charcters nearby as the supporting part of the story.

Thanks for your advices, but now all is close for the composition, I'm really happy with this one, but now the main problem is about colors.

Quote: bandro : My my you really work fast ha ha ha good concept about how long will be the journey with the slow motion of the snail

With the snail it will take long time but with foot it will be fast

Hey man, I watched your work at the DSG and I loved it every time

This is a great concept! I really like the atmosphere... It looks like a great journey...

As for the color version:
Theres some shadow on the main character, coming from the bush in the foreground, and it bothers me a bit... I think there sould be more light and wormer colors on this character, and more shadow and colder colors on the snail.
Maybe a tree in the left part of the painting, so some shadow will fall on the snail?
The snail stands out more than the elf and IMO it should be the other way around.

Looking forward to the final render!

good luck!

hey this is great, I really like your colour test so far and theres a nice atmosphere to it. I like the element in your original concept sketch with the driver of the snail getting angry with the person passing by but it seems to missing from the line art and the colour test.

You don't waste any time do you? The color test looks nice, it really fits the look you're aiming for. In my opinion, some darker tones in the middleground and foreground could inject a bit more life to it. Thats as far as I can crit it. Cool progress.
