Secret Agent Entry: Matt Ellis

Matt Ellis is entered in the "Secret Agent" update: View Challenge Page

Latest Update: Concept / pre-visualization: new idea
Old 06 June 2009   #2
This is a very interesting challenge and I hope that I will be able to finish this time

So here is the idea that I am thinking about. My idea is that you will see a big gathering of people waiting for some form of transit. But if you look closely at the image you will see a person being strangled by a mysterious individual. Everyone waiting for the transit has no idea the person is struggling for their life.

I really want to take the "Secret Agent" literally in the painting and if you are not really paying attention to the painting you the viewer might even miss the agent totally.

The setting I am thinking about is a futuristic/gothic look to the buildings and in the middle of the night with lots of neon lights. So I guess its almost a Dark Knight/Blade Runner feel that I want to the setting.

I hope to add some quick composition thumbnail sketchs at some point tomorrow.

Concept / pre-visualization: Rough Composition Thumbnails

Hey guys thats for the comments!

Here are just a few very quick thumbnail sketchs trying to figure out a bit of the mood and composition. But I will be making a lot of these until I am happy with one.

Very nice idea. a 'where's wally' of espionage!! your first thumbnail reminds me a little of the stealth kill of assassins creed.
looking forward to seeing how this comes out.
might be cool to have other agents hidden around the image. watching, or searching for the killer
