Concept Sketch: Let's go spike... Ready the sails



Just doodled for a dew minutes whatever came to mind and a kid playing pirates with his best friend spike came to mind. I have always wanted to do something with a pirate ship... I think this could lead somewhere. I'll doodle more clearly over the weekend.

I like the oversized boots, they bring out the childhood feel. If you keep this idea you might think about oversized(normal) broom or a little one turned around like a sword.

Look forward to seeing more

Thumbs up Hi there!

Ripples The boots detail is something I definitely did when when I was younger. It brings fond memories. I got to play the whole broom thing, definitely playing with size. I was also thinking of making a castle in the sky with clouds, that would be opening a whole can of worms in regards to level of difficulty. But I'm also thinking of a few other things... Stay tuned!

riki, Annemee, Samanthie Thanks, there are so many ways top go on this, for some reason the whole kid idea stuck. Kids can fly away to far off places just standing still... I got a few other ideas to share, I just hope I have the time to sketch this weekend. Thanks so much for the feedback.

Ducklator Compadre! Nice to see you again! Let have a great time like the last time.

Good luck to ALL!

Concept Sketch: Lower the sails..



Further developing my original concept. Just trying angles and getting a feel for the scene. This time, I placed a pair of polka-dot boxers on his head, Behind him is a window. As if looking up we see two ship-like clouds and a mysterious skull like cloud in the corner. The curtains flow in the wind as if announcing, "something's in the air". More to come...

I like the progress on the concept. Neat to see the different use of the broom. Not sure about the polka-dot boxers, I do miss the belt.
