Concept / pre-visualization: Deception is the key...



There's not much time, but I hope I'll manage to finish the piece. Here's the sketch- not finished yet...

Concept / pre-visualization: blocking the basic shapes



I've changed the background a bit and decided to put a secret agents banana-car instead of a guy in a banana suit which was my original idea. The decision was made when my friend showed me Bobby Chius entry for the Strange Behavior challenge and I wouldn't feel comfortable doing something too similar...

Funny idea, and great expression so far on the gorilla! The perspective is effective, and the framing of the shot works great. THe only little crit I have is the one biplane whose wing is on a tangent with the bridge tower. Good luck with the rest!

You love bananas, donīt you... and gorillas aswell! I can only agree with what everybody else said.

The following is no critique, but rather a reminder (advice) for your future progress:

If you manage to put the focal point of the picture on the banana-car, the piece will look very dramatic and exciting! Right now, when I look at the picture, itīs the funny expression of the gorilla, that captures my attention first, even though the car is yellow! Thatīs not a good thing, since the expression of the monkey is static and the whole picture should feel vibrant and moving! Also the gorilla shouldnīt be the focus of the piece!

If you put the driver of the banana-car in focus with your eyes... and concentrate only on him... thatīs what iīm talking about! The theme is "Secret agent" and not "Funniest gorilla- moments" donīt forget that! When you show the finished piece to someone, you donīt want them to go: "Hey, funny gorilla! Ahhaahh... heīs chasing a little banana-car! Boy, is he dumb!". You want them to say: "Funny car! -then take a second look, than laugh- itīs being chased by a gorilla! Now, thatīs clever!"... Thatīs the reaction you want... or should I say: should want to provoke... in my opinion and understanding of "Secret Agent" at least

I wish you the very best, since this picture can- and Iīm sure -will be a great one!!!

Pete

P.S.: Go Poland!
