Above & Beyond - 2D - jeroentje

I have about three or four ideas in my head and I'm trying out the ones with some chance of surviving after sketching.

So here's a 5 min's scribble for the first one. It's four mice travelling in a can of Cambell's soup with a tealight in it and a shopping bag for a hot air balloon. I have to check that Andy Warhol thing for a ref
For a ref of a mouse I have more than enough running around here (yuk).
What I don't like is the Stuart Little feeling about it. Not very original maybe... The lighting could be very interesting on the other hand, with a lightsource in the center of the piece.

Here's a hamster using a pair of dirty underpants for a parachute.
A strange use of color might be interesting, yet rather disgusting...

A combination of the two might be cool..like if it's a family sized can of coffee, they're all hamsters taking it up to engage in extreme sports underpants jumping..maybe it'd have to be made of mountain dew cans then

Nice Start. I wasn't sure if I was going to do this one, but you've sparked something for me. No worries, I won't copy. I think the first one is great for a start. Maybe if in the image you could show the land below in a large portion of the image it would look real nice.

Thanks guys

Remember these are just for fastly kicking some ideas on paper. I haven't decided what to do yet. Nor has the idea-train arrived at the station
If I make a choice, I will post a proper sketch with a decent composition etc.
Here's another one... those propellors are made of egg-spoons.

btw, I honestly hope this is not what Leonard meant with "taking abuse of the attachement system".
I myself always like to see what roads people walk before deciding what's the best concept...

This dirty rat has nibbled of the wings of granny's old parrot 'cause he wants to get airborn. Might be better with a camera angle from the back and the cachedoor open... light from the back (his front)... like the sky is all to be his etc.. Maybe the remainings of the parrot laying at the bottom of the pic... Maybe more Tommy Lee's kind of thing LOL

"This parrot is dead! It is a late parrot!"

Sketch is still just for concept.

Now a friend of mine, who is a 40 year old grownup, has the hobby of making waterrockets. He fills a lemonade bottle for 50% with water, uses a bicyclepump to get a lot of air in it, and when the pressure gets high enough, off it goes.
Whatabout the same principle, but with a big watercooler bottle tied to his back?

now that's funny and plenty of potential bad accidents...for some reason I think I need to go watch Wallace and Gromit fly to the moon now. Have you switched to painter for these sketches?

BTW, I don't think it's thread abuse, I like to see the road people take to the end picture.

  08 August 2002
Yeah!!! A grand day out!!!!!!
Check out http://www.aardman.com for more Wallace & Grommit... new ones are made as we speak!

Yes, this is Painter Classic. It has a nice sketchy feeling for the scribbles. And I'm experimenting with new ways and directions

Someone's been busy.
These are all great ideas. I think I like the waterbottle and rat ones best. Although the rat is just disgusting ... hehehehe. Definately something I would have expected to see from Tommy Lee.

Wow, ideas a poppin'..cool stuff! I definitely dig the water rocket idea, it's the right kinda crazy. I used to love playing with those, too. Maybe have the pumps strapped to the guy too, so he could be self-contained..or try and repressurize before hitting the ground again Hmm, what if it were a big beer keg? Can get a lot of pressure in there. At any rate I'm sure there'd be alcohol involved

I think 'the process' is important too, and especially here in the challenges I think that's their goal to show it evolve..

Thanks Kirt, I like to spray out lots of ideas before I start something, just to make sure I can choose from everything my mind comes up with. I hate it when halfway I get a better idea... These are all under 10 min sketches. So not that much work...

Beer is for drinking. That is what we here in Holland would call "alcohol abuse" :shame:
Cheers, jeroentje
