Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Spring in Hell



Hello everyone:
Here's my very first sketch on the subject.
My idea is to depict the Devil himself in love, and how being in love changes the hell in a more friendly environment for the ones around. Not sure if it's very original, so please, anyone notice me so if not...
thanks!

New sketch for this Devil in love. My inspiraton for him is Willie DeVille, or the looks of Iñigo Montoya in The Princes Bride. He seems to have seen an angel ;)

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Spring in Hell



Here's my first "almost there" sketch+ color scheme on the task. The main subject is shaping up just fine, I think- but still needs lots of balancing, and the colors seem to work together but yet again lots to tweak and define until everything comes together nice and clean. Suggestions are very welcome!
Thanks for dropping by.

IMHO, everything looks good. Characters poses are very theatrical but they work great. I am not sure if that Angel painting is necessary. Now I don't know what is more imported ... The Devil (who is obviously in love) or that Angle. Anyway ...its looks cool!

wow this looks really nice.... the idea is hell-arious ... u might wanna rethink the expression of the devil sidekicks... maybe a bit more sissy look with a big smile wud look interesting, cus davils r always angry looking, so why not reverse that too?.... just my 2 cents....

Keep up the good work... best of luck mate

Hello there Raul,
Differently from Kaolin just above me, I have to say, I really like the two guys in the back. They are awesome. I like your little story, and so far so good, everything looks fine. I’ll be watching your progress with a sharp eye, if that means anything. Good Luck!!!

Thanks for your feedback so far, all of you guys, very much appreciated.

I'll be re-sketching the whole comp trying to get rid of overlappings (thanks Vahn), and maybe trying a differente angle. I'm keeping for the time being the angry expressions for the Devil's minions (thanks for your input overcontrast and Uldferr) as the story goes they'd prefer Hell as it was, instead of an girly Ikea-lamp-lit version of it, but I'll see how it looks with different faces anyway.
About the angel portrait (thanks Jakkas), I personally think is good to depic the subject for love for this Willie DeVille Devil to have a full-circle storytelling there.
Again thanks everyone! Keep c&c's coming!...
