Ohh wow! I like this idea very much!! Great work
  03 March 2006
I liked the last but one better. The compositions was way better and the perspective looked more like "the begin" of this journey and was way more dramatic.
Also its a bit of a more naiv way of drawing to give the "great labyrinth" most of the space on canvas; don't have to. And the overview doesn't make it really look as dramatic, because it reveals too much. The lower angel makes it looking "endless" without showing more as needed.

PS: Reminds me of one MattePainting from "the Riddick" Dylan Cole did.

This last sketch is very good, nice perspective.

Maybe there's a castle to be seen way back in the distance, where the fella should go to.
There must be a goal (something) to go to I guess. There also could be some sort of crowd cheering for the participant taking this Journey, standing on the hillside on the right..

I like this a lot!
waiting for more..

thanks for the comment all!!! keep em comming!! this is fun

MichaelMotion: thanks! i was thinking that a didnt want to do a normal goal for the guy to get to...loke a tower/castle...i was thinking more along the lines of a nice green landscape maybe...something away from all the dark and gloom...
or maybe even no goal...and endless and fruitless maze...almost like a frustrating dream....ill play with all the ideas...including yours...thanks!!

jsn:thanks!! thats the

Slav: if someone had to do it then it might as well be thanks..

Duracel: going to work on both at the same time and see how they both come out,,,,still got a hell of a way to go...

Brutal Monk:thanks i might just give that a go..

Drakula: thanks me too!! lol

Coloring WIP: maze with quick dude test

just a very quick preview check to see how im going to put in the guy....personally i really dont like it with him as it is...maybe too big..?

i think that he should be quite small..maybe the maze can dominate...

what do you think?
