It's been a while, but this one is too good to pass up. I tend to dither a bit coming up with an idea, but i've got one fairly firmly in my mind, so hopefully it will stick. Sketches to follow shortly.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Sky fishing



A very rough sketch to get a concrete form to the idea in my head:

An old man fishing in the sky. Perfectly normal, seeing as it's skyfish season in the desert.
Perhaps the armchair was a bit much, but dang it, he prefers to be comfortable.

Ha! I like it a lot. Upon seeing the thumbnail I thought it was a Larry Walters tribute. I'd love to see very sandy (dry) colored fish and a very slimey Bootstrap Bill-ish looking fisherman. But that's just me. Good luck.

Did you just say skyfish season already begun? Damn, I thought it was only next month. Seems I'm gonna miss it this year again...

At least I'll be able to watch it from my seat, thanks to you. I'm definitely gonna follow your progress.

camouflage

Hi!

It's a fun idea! There is a method (in asia as I know) to catch flying bats. They use not ballon but kites to pull up a lot of hooks...

About your picture: maybe the belly of the fishes could be blue (like the sky) and the backs the color of the sand, you couldn't see them from below and neither the preadors from the upside. (You know, somehow like the camouflage of the real fishes.)

Good luck!

Teehee - this topic is straight up your alley - best of luck Martin!

I think you could just submit a self portrait.

lol.. LYW Rebecca

Erilaz, you're such a genuinely humorous presence on these forums, it's great to see you in this challenge.

Wacky concept too, it does have a real surrealist vibe to it already

funny and original idea, Martin! you could exaggerate it a bit by making him throw out the hook in the air catching poor little bird kids from their parents who are on their way to bahamas with their suitcases for a sunny vacation frm the cold north... or..

Hello Martin!

I like the idea - BUT - you could have him in a bikini, with two grapefruit halves strapped to his head, which in turn are plugged into a swan.

I also think it would be extremely foolish for him not to have a fishing companion... Say, a dog?

No wait! A balloon dog...

(I'll stop now)
