Concept Sketch: Sketches

These are some sketches I've picked. I tried to lay down a few ideas, trying to determine which is the best : a journey of trouts up the streams to mating grounds; some kind of little critter ( I think it could be an ant in the future ) that sets off to unknown on the other side of the Great Lake; two faerie sketches - travelling in packs; a hellish idea of a school attending.

Any comments would be much appreciated.

The first two sketches are really good. And the school one is really funny. But I couldn't tell you which one to go with, hard to choose.

Good luck and free time!

Dave - thanks, I'm gonna pass the "trouts jumping" one, but I'll think of the sea and the school. I have some other ideas rolling in my head, will try to put them onto paper.

Nebezial - thank you very much for the compliment. So two votes for the schoolconcept... might be a good idea to develope it

Concept Sketch:

I thought of one of opening lines from "Forrest Gump" - you can tell everything from one's shoes... where he's been, where he was going... It made me do this sketch. :)

First I tried to make the shoes a first plane from ground perspective, but I was missing.... a background. This feelinmg made me expand my canvas a LOT further to the extent you see. :)

I hope you like it more than the previous ones. :) I think it has a lot of potential in it, I'll focus on this idea.

Line Art: "And if you don't keep your feet..."

I upresed, doodled a lot with the composition ( and I hope the cottage support pole doesn't cut it too much ) and proper perspective lines... made the stairs less wide, so that they don't run off the page, corrected the scale of the cottage, added first texture wash... all in all - a lot of dooding. I've also made a principal colour scheme, but I didn't like it, so I won't post it untill it's better. That will be untill tommorow I hope. :)

I would REALLY use another two days in the week, so that I have time for everything... maybe we could gather lots of signs on a petition or something?... :D Who's with me? :D
