Concept Sketch: Concept



When I read the requirements for the contest an idea instantly come to light. I won't share just yet but let's just say it involves a slightly more morale decision on slavery.

The concept has basically a few ideas for the final image, nothing I wouldn't change completely if I thought it could work better.

Because I don't really do "line art" I mean I tried, it just doesn't work for me. I have to pretty much just airbrush the image and then submit it as as the line art milestone and move on to wip coloring.

I will add more info about the image on my line art submission.

I'm trying to tighten up the details a little without getting too complex making the image appear to have noise. I did more work on the hand and moved down to the "chain" I'm confident even with the figure deformations in the arm I can create the illusion of depth.

Without explanations of your concept it's hard to make any comment...

Will it be only black and white ?

I'm sorry, no it will be in color. I don't want to share too much information about the scene just yet. I will be sure to give more information in further posts about what I'm actually doing with the image though.

I have had to spend all my free time on other projects lately so it was kind of nice to set aside an hour and work on the contest entry.

I have been focusing this last part on defining the feeling of the head. I made a decision not to create the face until last because I believe with a face the viewer searches for emotion and feeling, and until I have the rest of the feeling in the image defined I could end up having to recreate the face.

I am having trouble deciding what to do with the arm, I don't want to go overboard and miss the deadline for the final image but I want it to be cool.

I decided I am going to try and squeeze in the extra time to make the arm more interesting. I also did some work on the neck area.

I had to stay up a little later then I wanted to work on this, but I think it's worth it.

I have defined the shape and feel of the arm, and some details. I think the meat in the arm is a good thing.

Your style is bloody awesome. It looks 3d but still looks 2d..just cool. Im guessing you're using a Wacom and painting in Photoshop or Corel Painter.

I use a logitech mouseman dual optic, no tablet. I use photoshop cs. If you look at teh edges you cna tell I make up for the lack of fluid lines by accessive smudging. Despite that I would say I have one of the smoothest mouse hands I've ever seen.
