Concept Sketch: final concept really going to go with this one...

this is the last concept sketch..

ill do a very quick line art then im going to
jump straight into the colouring stages...

what do people think of the trees? is it a good idea?

also should i have the litle boat loaded up like hes prepared...or empty like hes just going out to die?....

Line Art: linework

those who know me know that im not a big fan of line pore of a tonal painter...

so here is my line work...
its really just a paint over of the final concept..but i wanted to put the effort in for all the stages...

now the real fun begins...

the distant shore is maybe too intimidating at the moment. It's like a wall which you can't go over. It's blocking the way to the journey.. you want to make a gap to it so that he can go on his journey through it. Also it looks like he murdered his mate as the body is just left behind unceremonially like that. Just some thoughts.

Seems pretty nice dude! If u are going for the emptiness kinda feel its a go! It maybe is a little too early for me to judge at this stage, It may end up being successful, keep it coming!
