First concept idea.
Not terribly original
Jack and the old beanstalk. Still I think Ill run with it till I have a better one.
Well that’s off to a bad start. I wanted to edit the title…spelling mistake…and ended up posting the same image twice…Spot the newbie…
Some plants…don’t look much like beanstalks though…
Just wondering, for this challenge thing am I supposed to post the rough reference/idea/sketchy pieces?
Some sketches trying to work out what kind of perspective to use. Needs to look big and dramatic, so I’m thinking perhaps a really sharp worms eye view type one.
I think this is pretty close to the final image…might need to push the perspective a bit more though and fix up the composition.
Hi mark_ire. Nice drawing/composition. Good luck!
interesting~where does the big tree lead him to?keep them comig:)
This can be a nice one! like the idea.
cool ma n
Thanks guys, hopefully I can stay commited to this and actually finish it.
I put together a little 3d mock-up using Rhino. Thought it might help with positioning the view for my image and ensure the perspective isn’t all over the place. In the end I gave up on it as the camera placement functionality on that piece of software is totally rage-enducing.
Things left to do:
Sketch some real plants and trees for reference, but seeing as it’s zero degrees outside, that isn’t happening today.
Design “Jack” - the main (maybe only) character.
And most important of all - learn to paint - shouldn’t be too hard - there is 86 days and a bit left…
I like the last (final) drawn concept sketch very much. Lighthearted adventurous atmosphere. Like one’s favourite fariy-tale.
As for 3D suite, I use Blender3D and find it supports a very easy workflow once you got a feel for its approach.
And don’t even mention not finishing this…:curious: Now I want to see the whole thing unfold!
should be a good one…great start!!
liking the 3d layout for the little shack…has a nice cartoony feel…
ill keep watching youve caught my interest
Tried to finish drawing up the final complete line art image. About half-way through got that familiar “this just isn’t working - it’s really crap” feeling. Agghhh…it’s quite frustrating.
So, I gave up on completing the line art and went straight to colour. Probably not the best idea in the world
…Any tips on colouring and colour selection/combination would be greatly appreciated
as you can see I really them
Nice idea came across my mind too haha.
Great sketches so far!
nice sketches and study. good start.
Attempting to paint a decent looking Beanstalk type plant. So far so good…I think…Though I would say that, seeing as I’ve been staring at it for the past four hours. I really hope I finish this as itd probably be the only coloured image Ive ever finished.
Problems that I can see:
1.Perspective on the shack is off
2.I dont think theres a feeling of depth in the image probably due to the fact I cant colour for sh*te
3.Im beginning to think the image itself is a little flat not colour/depth wise just boring?
Any comments/feedback greatly appreciated,
