Thanks everybody!

Quote: not sure about the central wall - what's it for?

Yes, the wall... well it's a half-hearted attempt at making the road look like a modern highway, with a divider and two lanes of traffic in both directions (you know, like a post-apocalyptic future)... I thought, if I made the road look huge in relation to the character, the sense of scale would increase - I want the landscape to look as huge as possible. But, it didn't really work that well. Plus, it lacks logic.

Using this as a background for something different - that's exactly what I've been thinking about. Let's see if I can make another sketch today.

Concept Sketch: Closeup of charactere



Okay, I'm trying to get a more interesting pose on the character in the image, here I'm thinking maybe she's sitting by the roadside waiting for some kind of carriage or bus... Probably making the character much bigger/closer than before.

Nice pose, Steven, it very much looks like she's waiting for her Journey to begin... But of course, crouched down like that she'll take up less space on the canvas than standing, so you may need to move her even closer...

Anyhow, it's exciting to see you entering this Challenge. I hope this means that not only will we all get to learn from you as you develop your great work, but that you'll also be visiting lots of other threads to share your experience and insights!

Best of luck, and have fun!

Amazing work as always. It looks more like, the Journey's end is in sight, or I'm half way through the journey, rather than the Journey begins.

I see you are going to end the journey with an outstanding image as usual. The pose of your character is great, I agree with Walrus, she must be larger in the image. I´ll be watching you Masster...

The sense of depth is amazing in this picture. Gives the impression of a truly epic journey ahead. I also like the way that you can't see the finish line. Gives a sense of mystery about where exactly the character is headed. It'll be interesting to see how exactly the character fits in with this composition. Very nice so far.

Yeah that could work, Just one character right? I am still unsure what u want to go for in this piece, but u have a lovely color pallete! Did u want to have the character to be alone, in a barren desolate area? I would like to see more sketches, I will keep an eye out for this one!

Line Art: Together forever



Okay, here's a completely different approach I thought of yesterday, let's see where it leads. Because it has mostly negative associations, it may not fit the topic perfectly - "journey" to me sounds positive - but strictly speaking she is embarking on something new, and possibly long-lasting...

edit:
But I'm not flushing the landscape, not yet. I'll add in that character first, see what it looks like.
Quote: I am still unsure what u want to go for in this piece

Yes, that's it's problem right there. Awe and excitement are emotions that are very vague and also hard to evoke in any strength, so most people are left with a bit of a 'meh' feeling of this, at least so far. :)
