This is going to be uber-quick - in and out before you know it (missus). Just for a laugh, really, as I liked the challenge idea.

Line Art or Model: Step 1



After 30 seconds or more deliberation, I decided to do something surreal. It's called skyhook, it's basically an old farmer who decides to go fishing in his back field. As you do.

Got a quick sketch, loosely ref'd from a photo to get the colours. Now to block in the farmer and the fish...

Colour blocked in so it's just a case of adding detail and I'm done. Told you it'd be quick ;) I'll have another look at it tomorrow.

Wow!!

Very nice palette and a beautiful yet simple concept. I really like the atmosphere and feel of this as well.

Just curious though, what is the man supposed to be doing? I originally thought he was like flying a kite and the fish were the kite or something, but thing in his hand looks more like a fishing pole and another person mentioned a farmer. So is he farming the fish? Fishin in the sky? Flying a fish kite?
