Steven Stahlberg is entered in the “The Journey Begins Challenge” update: View Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Road Trip


This is my concept sketch, although it’s not a line drawing, hope that’s ok.
It’s boring but I wanted to join before too much time passed. Maybe I’ll come up with a way to rescue this later…




another noobie



good game. we all loose. :slight_smile: good luck mr stahlberg.


ahhww~its gonna be fun~kfc would be surprised:scream:goodluck sir~:thumbsup:


All is “kaput” …the King has just arrived.


ok were doomed! :stuck_out_tongue:


:smiley: nice to see you’re entering, I love the colours in this concept :slight_smile:


the colors . . . the light . . . vibrant and inviting, . . . far from boring! i am inspired and must find time to throw my sword into this adventure



Good luck, Steven…not that you’ll need it…nice to see you around!

By the way…2d? Not 3d?

I like this so far…the colors and lighting (of course) are fantastic. Are you going to put something in the landscape around the middle of the painting, it’s looking a little empty right now?

Hope you have fun in this challenge!


I see our elders just arrived to put things a little tough on the contest. Glad to see you here Steven, now this will be real fun.


Welcome to the challenge Steven! Some lovely colors you’ve got there… :slight_smile: Eager to see what you have in store for us! Good luck and have fun! :slight_smile:


Woohoo :smiley: we’re all doomed! Good luck Steven - absolutely beautiful colours in that sketch :).


beautiful work :slight_smile: i love the feel it gives of the journey


Hi stahlberg !
Big fan here, The composition here seems strange, but I 'm sure you’ll get a great final picture.
Colors and atmosphere are already great, but I think you should try a more original angle of view with impressive contrasts etc.
You knwo as you others great picture, try to think “epic” and “narrative”.

:wink: good luck. I’ll check later. :slight_smile:


welcome mr. stahlberg :thumbsup:

colors and bg comp are pretty cool … just cant get friendly with the position of the character :shrug:


Another noob, when are we going to get some competition around here?.. :rolleyes: :smiley:

That sketch is so simple yet very effective.


concept??? o crap.:sad: were all doomed.

love the colours in this… was actually staring at it and getting lossed in it… sounds cheesy but its true!


Thanks guys! :slight_smile:
Here’s a more worked version… still not happy with it though, it’s still boring. Yeah, I agree about the composition, but the more basic problem is the idea. I’ll sketch some more ideas, see what develops.
