Concept Art: Large Scale Blueline Sketch 01

I'm still playing around with some basic imagery trying to settle on a subject. Having a little trouble getting a significant amount of time to dedicate tot his challenge but my resolve is strong.

I'll be working up a wider-large scale comp, as well as a closer-up character sketch and then choosing a direction later.

Concept Art: Color Sketch (Brushwork Study 01)

Still haven't settled on a theme for the large-scale piece yet but I've wanted to experiment with the history brush for a while now and finally took the opportunity.

Concept Art: Final Sketch

My topic is an exposition of Patricias character who through the course of the novel comes to symbolize the spirit of The Stone. While this scene does not exist in the narrative as such, it seems suited to the topic at hand; putting her high above the chamber, contemplative of her surroundings.

Line Art / Model: Value Study Stage 1

Blocking in values, screwed up my worklog a bit and didn't version out properly - won't happen again.
  12 December 2006
Line Art / Model: Details Value Layer

Back on track with versions - added more detail to the foreground layers, blocked out modeling on figure.

Still have no idea how I'm going to get a city in the background but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it; I am hopeful.

That's looking very promising!
The only thing that bothers me, is that when I first saw it, I thought it was a child sitting there. Perhaps you need to elongate the torso and make her head a little smaller?
Good Luck!

Line Art / Model: Final Grayscale

Two days to color and composite... cutting it really close.
  01 January 2007
Initial color pass or textured and lit model: Color Layer One

Laying down color, clearly going to be cutting the time close, estimating that I've got about 6 hours of work left.

Final composite and colour timing: Patty on the Mound

Furiously feverish fingers finish final fictional fun finery.

Final Image: Holy Hours Go By So Fast!

Well, here it is - a final. I'm not so sure it's the greatest in the world -- but I accomplished my goal. To finish a piece for the contest.

Feeling rather satisfied at the moment. Hope you get at least a small fraction of enjoyment from viewing.
