@Rebeccak: Thank you very much, is great having you posting.


@nmcelmury: I realy appreciate your words...they push me to keep trying.

I want to participate in the Yacek Yerka competition, not for win any prizes (but i wouldīt mind......but for have an excuse to finish a piece.

Hereīs an idea, iīd like to do 2 more sketches and then choose the better one, but iīm running out of time.

So here is the sketch. The ship looking thing, its suposed to be half a train, half a ship.

Thank you! Itīs great to have you posting Magdalena...and more with that comments ...iīm kind of a fan of your incredible talented work, so..., and .

Here is a variant, wich a like more than the other. This concept would be the place where the water, rain, etc come from, and the big drop would represent THE WATER. A lot to do obviously, but thatīs what it is for today.

Iīm realy glad you like it vikramvr, thank you for saying it.

This past week i didnīt get much time, so i made some small sketches with pencil, (and i must say that for sketches, i prefer it going that way rather than the Intuos) for the Jacek competition. I donīt have a scanner so i wont post them here. But, with the little time that remains i just picked one, and here is the basic rough digital, and modified version.

Please, any critics will help, tomorrow (i hope!) iīll begin the real one, the work line at least.
Iīm absolutly shure that with these few days i have, i wonīt be able to make even an aceptable entry, but i like these competitions, and iīll learn something at least...even very little, but anything counts, everything is a plus.

So here it is so far, some things canīt be understood at this rough stage.

Your last piece is coming along nicely.

A few suggestions:
  • work in grayscale first. When you are certain of your concept and composition, render it out in grayscale first and when that is done, add color. You need a wider range of values to add more contrast to the focal point(s), in other words: think of light.
  • there seems to be some kind of storm going on? Try to make it more clear to the viewer by depicting everything less vertical, eg the umbrella doesn't seem to be influenced by any wind, though the rain drops down under an angle
  • the water seems to be swirling around, but I can't tell that from the trees below the surface. They should be following the direction of the flow of the water.

NR43, first of all, thank you very much for taking the time to write this advices, i appreciate that.

About working in grayscale, working the light aspect first...youīre right, iīve been told about that, and i just canīt get used to it, but from now on iīll definitly try that. The work flow would be making a layer in overlay mode for the colors right?

About the storm youīre right too, the thing is, i made a sketch(the first one, B&W), and i changed a lot of things on the way, following my instincts.
Now i see the piece, and the composition is not good, with the focal subject just in the middle...mmm...but i have just some hours and i canīt do much for correct all the things i see bad.

And the last things, the trees, iīll draw some more on the corners, maybe that will make more sense.

Thank you again, and be welcome to keep coming and tell me your points of view.

cheers.

This one is the submitted image, i think that has a lot to improve, mostly the lack of contrast values, but i had no more time.

Cheers.
