So I've got an idea for a new piece. In most of the threads on here you see a lot of comments regarding the thought process that goes into a new painting, doing thumbs, the motivation of any characters in it.
The way I usually do it is to just have a picture in my head and then just jump right in and start painting it. This time tho I'm going to try and do some thumbs and really plan the picture out. I've never painted thumbnails out before but here is what I have so far.
Basically the idea is a knight vs a bowman or hunter of some sort in the woods. Maybe the knight is after the hunter for poaching the kings deer or the hunter is actually an assassin whos hunting down the knight and found him while he was on his way through the woods.
In some of my thumbs I have the hunter having the drop on the knight who knows someone is out there but not where he is. That said, I'm kind of partial to the one in the bottom left hand side where the knight seems to have had the drop on the hunter and is jumping off a rock to slash/stab the bowman.
Obviously the thumbs are ultra rough. Let me know which one you like or if you think I should keep working on the thumbs.
Any feedback is welcome
