Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: The Warfare Fields bus stop



Hi Everyone, this is my first concept, the idea is a urban portrait of a big minotaur-bison warrior waiting for the bus to go to the battlefield, and the office hottie he meets there. Now, i want the girl to look like she's really flirting at him, so i'm thiking of changing de pose and expresion a bit, if you have any imput on it please let me know! i specially have trouble with composition since the bison is so big, but i thik it would be cool if the comp sinks to the lower center just like the bench so he looks really heavy, how bout' that?
Best luck to everyone!!

Line Art or Model: the girls



OK, as i said i've been wondering about the girl so here are various models of her in different versions i went through, left to rigth:
-cartoony
-oriental mmmmm
-school girl
-Pam! (from the office)
-this is the alternate version of the original and i will paste her with the bison to se how she looks.
well so many options and i feel a little lost so, as always if you have a word on it plaese let me know!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: second try



Wow she looks good to me...
Something funny hapened: the first one was supposed to represent the very moment the bison sits and bends the bench hence driving the girl towards him, in this second one it seems that it happened already and the girl had a little time to cuddle agains him and start playing with his fur, good or bad? i don't know at this point.. heck, it's just a sketch! i'll be going for the good one in the coming days so i'm taking all suggestions...

This is better She's definitely looking more specifically flirtatious. You might also try a sketch where she's turned slightly toward him, staying braced on her right hand (as she is now) but with her left hand reached across her body to twirl around his arm hair.

I still can't help but chuckle at the fact that, in this Strange Behavior Challenge, the fantasy bison warrior waiting on a bus is the one playing the serious character

If you try lifting her right hand's pinky finger straight towards the beast, almost touching his left arm fur, keeping the rest of her hand as is, it could add a subtle but effective flirtyness..

Great drawing style, I love it. I like your concept too. I think there is someone else that's doing beauty and the beast kind of concept too though.

best of luck
