Concept / pre-visualization: The old merchant

So this is the early concept drawing to explain the idea.
--I imagine many things at the following days after i read the challenge subject and one day i suddenly dreamed an image about an old man sitting someplace like a small restaurant with some strange but cute creatures with him. Some people around this place, looking at him with a cheerful interest. I sense that he is a merchant and selling those pet aliens to the rich people.
-- Story is established on future estimation for sure. However i'll follow some kind of idea about how an old man's anathomy is strange such as those creatures. =).. i think the image will have a nostalgic, old but futuristic atmosphere..
-- I'll upload more improved concept work soon. And will study for that creatures, not sure i'll use those designs i did here. This is just about to tell the main idea actually...
-- I welcome all challengers and wishing so much fun... cheers!!..

Concept / pre-visualization: The old merchant Concept Sketch BW

Today i worked on the composition and did this photoshop drawing to generate some mass value. I defined the place, figures and how those creatures will indwell around the old man. Also how people and old man will interact with them... I think this picture gives true idea about result.
-- At my following submit, i wish to put some colour harmony on it.

I look forward to seeing color, but the tones and lines look great.

the black and white and clothing, make it look like a very old-fashioned future. ...like how the future used to be. intersting idea, with lots of potential.

I like the way this is going Alperen. Has a lovely kind of old fashioned, '''Norman Rockwell' feel (and he is one of my all time heroes). Looking forward to watching this progress.

Smile primate pets

Nickillus, Visualator, scala, KOryH, Kid Dynomite - i thank you all for your interest and support...
I checked out for the artist you pointed.. I'm ashamed of myself that i wouldn't know him,, but thanks for suggestions, his paintings are GREAT and fascinating.

I couldn't find much time on coloring yet. I hope to do it soon and i also will have some changes on the concept. I want to change those creatures
to baby primate pets. They will look like more human and more alien . Ahh,, telling those things are balderdash without any work,, i know that,, but that's all i can do at the moment... =)

Concept / pre-visualization: Color assignment presentation

i managed some color assignement to guide me for the future painting. I'll use it as a color palette and i will stick to this color form.

-I used a simple and quick way for that aim. In an empty layer, i applied some rough color which is shown at a02 square. Defined this as a base layer placed at the bottom and used some layer blend options on my black-white sketch that shown at a01 square. I used two blends which are 'color dodge' and 'vivid light'. Actually this stage allows some different results as an experimental essay.

- I flattened each layers and manipulated them with a %60 opacity value of the vivid light layer, %100 opacity value of the color light layer at the bottom. I put the black and white layer itself on top with some saturation, level and erasing works.

I tried to gain some mood and atmosphere by this color information.

Concept / pre-visualization: Color assignment

So, this is the result image, larger.
Actually i didn't start over the paint but this stage is important to have a quick idea about the color tones and atmosphere.
