Concept Sketch: forest

Got the idea when I was out picking lingonberry.
Who knows what hides in the deep forests!
Well I´m not sure yet, but some kind of abandon city or something else that is really cool.

Love the idea! Though.. I think you should place real large trees around the city, that will also hide the city from for example airplanes flying by. You could make this large roots and moss surronding the city buildings, would give a nice nature/metal contrast.

I'll be following this, curious on how it will envolve. Keep it up!

Trying out some ideas on the same subject

hi norberg,

welcome to the challenge. i love the economy of strokes in your painting! if only i could visulise something without having to use loads of lines!! keep up the good work.
is it going to be highly detailed or loose?

I probably go for the cathedral thing. I´m thinking a big, massive building with lots of different angles that reflects the light. Maby some gargoyles or an alien touch would make it look more interesting?
Right now I´m sketching on a few different ideas but nothing looks anything near spectacular yet!

good ideas about the building, but perhaps dont go for the 'alien ship/presence over the building' scenario. that a previous challenge .
maybe by concentrating on the building, clouds above, architecture, gargoyles on the building etc it would be cool.

p.s. these are my opinions ofcourse and i await to see what you come up with.

Concept Sketch: darkness

Got the idea from the brilliant artist Roj Friberg´s work from the seventies.
Darkness falls over a city.
Think I´ll have a few stunned people watching on the balcony in the forground.

I like the concept ideas about a cathedral with light shining through the windows, lots of amazing color possibilities there, but the darkness concept looks promising too. I'd like to see both concepts worked out to be honest.

I´m thinking some kind of projection.

Building up colors and light
not sure about the composition...
Old 09 September 2005   #12
I think the idea about the discovery of an abandoned city is great! Im not sure about the composition though... Try to focus some more on making the viewer understand whats happening without being told what its about. Maybe some more angles also? Angkor Vat is a city that was discovered in a similar way that your image shows.. I guess you know what it is, maybe look for some inspiration there!

Lycka till!

No you are right!
This composition is boring and flat.
I will try a different angle and a wider format.

trying a different angle

Nice concept et good point of view. Better that the 1st one I think.
