I like the addition to the sign, and the idea about the sharks in the bg. I feel like the sharks arent quite working yet in the composition.I think right now they are competing with the sign to me. maybe the sign could be in front... so the sharks on his trail are more dominant. They could be off in the distance kicking up dust like a posse of desperados. That my 2cents man! Keep it going man.

Yeah dude. This is really turning out to be hilarious. Great characters. Push the worm look so everyone gets the relationship of the fisher's worm to a fish....right now it looks like a parasite hanging for a ride (which could be pretty funny too)

So you're not doing this in 3D eh?

Thanks fellas, I agree the sign is distracting now, id like to keep the sharks instead so I will see what I can do about it, also I did very crude 3d models just to get a base down that I painted over for this, but jesse's challenging me to try and model it, LOL I still dont know.

Thanks for the great feedback!

Hey Don, this should be cool. You can really go off with the expressions. I really like the worm's expression, the fish could use some more excitement, and maybe a saddle? Good stuff!

Thanks Brian! I like the saddle idea! And I will see what I can do to push the fish expression. For now, I must sleep!

Thanks so much for your comment! And yes these guys are the best of friends, by nature they should be brutal enemies like cat and mouse, but instead they are freinds on a quest for the golden sea horse, a master of the ways of the wild sea, when they meet him they will learn the key to unlocking the gateway to the underwater town of gold and sea dreams, where they will live fruitful lives as adventures of the deep blue sea. OK I just made all that up but sounds pretty good right?

Anyway I am still going to try and model this painting in 3d for my final, but just in case I don't make it, at least I will have a finished illustration for the competition.

So I am pushing forward and going to try to model my scence and possibly use the illustration I already have as the inspirational work for the final, No matter what I still plan on taking my 3d render into photoshop to try and push the image further. For now here is the begining of my fish model, I am not a strong modeller my thing is animation and illustration, but we will see how it goes! :)

Thumbs up

It's a good model! much better than the first, but let me say, i would have loved to see it 2D, so don't forget your Photoshop to achieve that moody look of your sketch!

Have fun!

Your avatar scares me.....

Just pushing the model a bit more, I want to begin on the worm next week so I hope to get this guy looking tight before then. The design is a little differnt then what was in my initial illustration, but I wanted to try and go in a diffrent direction with it anyway.
