Promising concept. The picture looks rather flat though-- maybe you should introduce a landscape? That's one of the main suggestions in the challenge- to show the journey that the traveller must go through- make it epic, make it perilous!

Concept Sketch: EXILE



A better view
-------------

Staples, thx for the visit. I understand what you mean, but i want to try something different. I want to make spectators dream what is laying behind their sight. Because with this angle of view we can see the exiled hero's homeland, people, equipment and gestures. I want to make spectators figure it out what is waiting by reading the spectators' faces.

What do you think?

cool architecture and character interaction, which were always challenging for me to pull off!

It is good to see you're going 5D on this challenge too. Best of luck to you on both entries! I like the story behind your image. Maybe the hero could be exiled because he is in love with the ruler's daughter; you could have her begging at the arm oh her father's thrown.

Thx All

Thank ya guys, since i am trying to do 5D on this challenge again, i am giving more gas towards the 3D leg this time. So, my 2D competition can be more progressive afterwards the other come into a shape.

Keep connected, or i may warn you whenever i add somethings new.

Hmm. I like both ideas. However, there is a slight issue I could see coming up: the "character in exile" idea might seem a little cliche, if you don't make the picture really, really interesting. (Like the idea about the ruler's daughter.) If you *do*, it could be great! On the other hand, the kids seem like fun and are less common of a theme, as far as I know. However, the "great journey" might be harder to imply. Soo... I guess you should do whichever one you have better ideas for. More going on in the background, I think, for either of them. Just to give yourself an edge.

This, of course, coming with the person with the least active concept sketch yet. :P

Hey Levent, the new concepts looks great too! You've put yourself in a tough spot, now you have to choose between two good ideas. I also like the idea of using the children as the adventures going out on a journey. And I think you can convey this in the theme of the challenge very well. Since even the smallest things can seem like an adventure to children. Maybe you need to show why they are embarking though? One of the kids could have lost a ball over the fences, something that shows the necessity of their actions?

i think both are good but in the little explorers idea if thats a spooky house on the back change it becouse i saw somebody nearly finished that kind of idea. but little explorers are really nice if they explore something that is going to be more epic. if i find that thread with the spooky house i will send you a link maybe you wont share my ideas about the similarity. and good luck with the choice i think deciding after coloring will be healthier.
