Here’s another rough sketch for the composition…
Everything’s been a bit hectic for me over the last week or two so i’m struggling to find time for Chimpski and to really get involved in the challenge. But i managed to get this done in my lunch hour. I lowered the viewpoint (nice suggestion, theresa) and made Chimpski more central. I’ve expanded the moon and i’m gonna try and gear all the perspective towards it. And I’ve moved all the secondary characters into the background. I may bring Mrs.Chimpski a little further forward.
Colour wise, i’m either gonna go for dusk (think of the vivid sky in the Betty Blue poster) or cold and frosty daylight with big clouds. Both of these should contrast nicely with the orange suit that Chimpski will be wearing.
I’ve realised there’s a lot of compositional similarities between this and my Spectacular piece, but i can’t think of a way around that… Hopefully the colours will help further differentiate it…?
