Great composition and story-telling in your piece. It has a very classical animation feel to it, and conveys so much of the story purely through composition... I find that impressive.

I would go with the castle design on the left, if you ask me... it seems more interesting.

Can't wait to see the final image! Good luck!

i prefer the manor on the left. i think from the low angle the little towers protruding out should look very interesting.

i also like the idea of the little companions. sinse we won't get a great deal of detail that gives us a better idea of the character's story.


tre magnifique,

PS - sorry if i spelled that wrong. don't speak french.

yeah

I prefer the left manor too! the litlle towers gives a nice design between a casttle and the manor...but I think that had to adapt it to the illustration perspective.
thanks

I like the perspective

I like the perspective and the iron gates. The toy the child is holding adds to the smallness of the character compared to the place she is thinking of entering.

Hi Olivier...

I really love your composition and the way it leads you from figure all the way up to the mansion.

Great image and looking forward to seeing how this develop.... nothing to suggest at this moment in time....

Concept Sketch: speed painting



Hi everybody,
Here is a little speed sketch just to try a larger format(I am not very satisfied, I really like my first proposition).I think that this speed painting has an nice cold athmosphere.I have added a owl in the background and I think that it looks great.The cattle has been modified but I think that it's less interesting than before(so I am going to change it).Tell me what you think about this last version...thanks

Hey - like the slightly tilted angle which adds to the perpective leading to the far off tower. You can almost feel the atmosphere. Touch of the Tim Burton to it too - which is always good! Nicely framed and conveys well the ominous journey the tiny girl is about to undertake, added to by the feeling of the Owl's eyes watching her. Good stuff and addresses the brief well. Will stop back this way...

This is looking really nice. It's hard to see the difference in layout between this and the earlier one scrolling back and forth between them, but I suppose it doesn't matter, as they both look nice. Good luck with this!

Happy to see you here olivier. Always fan of your work. this one is nice. Like the composition and clear intention. NO more to crit because the image is a little small for more opinion.

Hi Olivier I`ve always admired your work. Great vertical composition, i find the girl maybe too small for the starting point of view from which your eyes take you upwards to the manor. The subject is delicious. Good luck my friend, I´m eager to see how you continue.,

I really like the harmony between each design object you draw, all is re-interpreted, and glue to your style. unique style !

Yeah

Thanks everybody...
I see that you all like composition.
I am going to adjust some details in the design and then begin the artline tomorrow.
Many thanks to all

Ramitxon>>Many thanks, and yes the girl is very small, but I think that it is an important idea in the composition (having a small girl in a very high environment).
Thanks
