Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: first sketch



Welcome everybody !

My english is not the best, but i think it´ll last to explain my pictures, as long as necessary,
and answer to your questions and comments.

After some days of brainstorming and thinking about "strange behavior", i finally got an idea.

In my image i want to show somebody, who is hunted because of his strange behavior.

The main character is a magican. He lives in a city, where industrialation and new techniques
have replaced all myth and magic. Magicans are no longer needed and even persecuted for their
unusual way of life.

My magican tries to escape in one night, but he is discovered by some guards.

I want to show the moment of descision between escape, surrender or maybe an attack.
And, for this contest, even more important, the painting i will expose the contrast
between the orderly town and the strange magican with his abilities, equipment and behavior.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: values



To get a feeling for the scene i did a quick sketch of the values.

Perspective and Composition are not final and i will try and think about different solutions for the next steps.

Wow! You did it! You started!

Looks cool so far, but I think the perspective and composition could be I bit more interesting.
But I know this is going to be great! Keep on and good luck!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: new perspective



@essen and tAstyBITs: thanks !

The last days i tried to find a new perspective by constructing it in a simple 3d-program.
I think this one will work.

Also added two new figures at the right, little friends of the magican. perhaps dragons or monkeys...? ;)

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: sketch



I didn´t have much time in the last day and will still be busy until next week. But i did a new sketch this morning.

I like it at this moment, but there are still some things to adjust before i ll start to finalize the drawing.
I will think about it during work and hope for helpful comments ;)

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: First Color Idea



When i thought about the scene the last days, i realized that the most important missing part was the color.
I head no concrete idea at all.
Normally i would have continued with a more accurate drawing, but this time i tried to go on here.

So i experimented a while and this was the result.

Nice colors! It'll be nice to see them as you refine them more, especially the warms around the main figure.

Compositionj-wise, everything you have works, but I wonder whether it might be stronger if you comitted to really pushing the lardnscape shape of your canvas... or make it a strong portrait shape. Right now it feelsa a bit non-comittal, like ti can't make up its mind which it wants to be! For example, what if you extended the canvas on the left and moved the shooting figure over there too, so that he was one third of the way from the left side and your protaganist was exactly one third of the way from the right side? Could be an even stronger composition than you have now... might be worth at least fooling around with before you get too comitted to the painting. (Or not. Just an idea...! )
Good luck!

Hey walrus,
i was just painting, when i read your post.. tried it at once and
i like it ! thanks for your comment. =)
what do you think about the changes ?

i will still adjust some positions when i go back to the drawing.
but now i have a very good idea about the mood of the final image.

I'm glad you like it! I too think it's much stronger compositionally. Good luck with the rest of the coloring!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: drawing



The Drawing before will go on painting the scene.
I used it mostly to define the design of the characters and to add details.

The last step before my vacation... so i have two weeks to think about it and improve some things before i start the painting ! =)
