Line Art or Model: Final BW-Sketch



Some small changes, but I think that is what the image will look like. Next step: Color.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Colorconcept



First Colorconcept. I'm quiet happy with the underwaterpart, but I think the over the Waterpart of the image is a bit boring.

Hi Marcus,

I like the composition still bit to plane but since its all still in concept, no problem by that, I think it will be great to add some little character laughing at the old man maybe the fellow whom was about to be fished? This is because that idea pop over my head when I was seen it. But I thinks its clever and funny all ready

cool start! i like it. maybe you could add some scars or tattoos on the fisherman. or a little shocked pet that sits on the boat end looking down and see the big fish coming up.

apart from that, i still have a little problem seeing the strange behaviour in this scene. can u explain that?

Line Art or Model: Some Changes



I did some changes on this piece. I thought (and the comments confirmed this), that it was to difficult to understand what happened in the pic. So I decided to replace the golden watch by something that looks like the hand of a human drowning in the water, is in fact the end of pivot of the anglerfish which can will grab everyone trying to help to "drowning person" and drag it into the mouth of the fish.
I think this also explains better what is strange about the fish behavior. Its maybe a bit different from most interpretations in this challenge, because it is not really a weird behavior, but more an unexpected behavior(A fish imitating a drowning human to drag one underwater).

l also changed the design of the fish. I think its a bit "stranger" now And the fishermens reaction was changed to fit the new decoy

fellah: I hope the notes to the last update answer your question.

surely one of my fav concepts! everything plays along very well ...

somehow .. there is something missing .. but cant pin point wat it is .. :(

maybe ... the fish is too near ?? ... should it be more deeper? ...


just a doubt ... other than that ..

superb!

good luck for the challenge!

Oh the hand decoy, of course!! It seems obvious now you've done it. Really nice and very clever concept, you should get a great final piece out of this

With the hand now it is very cool! The idea is great. Much better than the watch.
