Concept Sketch: Concept Sketch1

I am attempting to convey various aspects of the master/servant relationship with this concept. (1) Everyone-even the master-is a slave to something. Often the master is completely dependent upon the slave. (2) Your desires and obsessions ultimately make you a slave. (3) Finally, one becomes their obsession/their master. As one consumes more of their obsession they begin to look like, talk like, act like, etc. their obsession/their master.

In this portrayal there are 2 master-servant relationships at work. (1) The woman in the center-a very stereotypical depiction of beauty and female desire-is a slave to her material desires. In this case, her material desires take the form of diamonds. She is attached to a machine that grinds diamonds and allows her to live. Her junk, her monkey are the diamonds. She is a slave to her material desire. (2)The half-man/half-dogs are slaves to their sexual desire for the woman in the center. They bring her diamonds that allow her to feed her monkey and they are rewarded in turn. The woman is the central master in this sketch. But she is a slave to her own desires and she is dependent upon-a slave to- the man/dogs that bring her the junk.
The men are slaves in the truest sense. They are morphing into dogs-man's slave. Dogs entertain us, feed our needs for companionship and loyalty, fetch our house shoes and newspapers, etc. The men have become her dogs, her slaves, they answer to her needs. Their sexual desires have made them slaves.
The woman is becoming like her master and taking on material traits of her master/desire/obsession. Her eyes are diamonds. The lower part of one of her legs is turning into a diamond. Her life stems from the supply of diamonds. She will always be a slave to her obsession but her obsession/desires/master is becoming a material, substantial, obvious part of her in a very literal sense.

Line Art: Line Art

Here is my line art.

I must say it has been awhile since I have drawn anything. I hope this is more understandable to read than my messy sketches.

This will be my most challenging project yet. I have never put so much stuff in one drawing before.

I would also love some feed back.

Thanks you looking.

Coloring WIP: Highly Maintained Junky

Here is a small low rez color test. This is by no means my final color choices. Just playing around seeing what I like and do not like. She will be pale no matter what, because she can not get outside.

All of the brightness is the Diamonds.

Coloring WIP: Adjusments

I decided to break this up into parts so my computer will not melt or something like that. I was blocking her in and decided to make some small changes to her body.

I think I might have her right arm reach up for one of those diamond necklaces.
