Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: First Sketch

This is the first idea I came up with. Its one of these hunter-prey stories, where their relationship is flipped around. The pivot of the frogfish could probably be something that looks like a golden watch. I think I gotta make the whole thing a bit more complex, but I'm happy with the initial idea.

Also there is absolutely no design, nor a concept for anything like color or composition in this first draft. except the idea of using an extreme format for the illustration to give this scrolleffect when looking at it.

This is a really great idea!

It's simple, and to the point. If you make the watch obvious but pretty, it's going to work really, really well.

I also dig that you're using a different format for the image than usual. The vertical scroll is really smart and pushes the ideas behind the image.

I can't wait to see the progression on this one!

Welcome to the Challenge... Good Luck and Keep it Odd!
There is no one right way to do anything.
Only the un-explored ways. =)

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Concept - Fishermen

This is the first concept for the fishermen. I'm not quit sure if it would be better to let him be you like, so you feel pity when you see whats going to happening to him or may he be an old greedy fart who no one likes and who deserves to be eaten.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Anglerfish

This is the first Concept for the Frogfish/Anglerfish/Sea Devil, what ever...
The first thing I was thinking about was the silhouette. Its somekind of crossbreed of an Anglerfish, an Moray and a Great White. It should be a lot bigger than an normal anglerfish, so it can eat a whole human.
I'm also thinking about giving him some bioluminescencestuff along his body. But I think I will decide this in the Final Image on how it improves the whole look.

I like scenes with much water or also under water.
Such scenes can be converted in many kinds.

The only problem, which I have with your concept: Now do not dare I any longer in the sea for swimming.

Go on and good luck to you.

Great simple concepts. I'd think maybe a more down turned angle might be a better view. Then we could see a little more of the old man.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Study

I made the image a bit broader to give it more room and changed the position of the fishermen to give you a better view at him. Added some details too and changed some things about the values.
