have at it. feel free to comment on any or all of them, or none of them. Compositition? Colors? Subject Matter? I can upload grayscale of these later if it would help.
Big fortress; The composition's changed from the sketch to color comp; both the Ind. Study advisor and I agree for the better. he also suggested some foreground elements, which I've yet figured out what. A couple of characters would add nicely to the narrative aspect I think.
Unofficial 3rd piece [I'm only doing two officially for the Ind Study, this is the 4th out of 11 weeks]. I felt this option was more "stately" than the second sketch, so decided to develope this one further. The other view point is also more difficult to render correctly.
Only one version for this one. I always thought it a challenge to do mostly monochromatic pieces and figured I take a shot at it with this one. Yuki-Onna is from japanese folklore. Snow woman who takes people away when they die in snow storms. Described as wearing white kimono and powdery skin with black hair, usually young and beautiful. but I found a ref of an old woman in a newspaper clipping [ironically she was in the ER for hypothermia] and thought that she'd be fitting. I think the color scheme works okay, though the image can be cropped more. Her stance is rather stiff in the sketch, and I bent her forward a little more in the color comp. The long hair on her left seems to balance her stance out.
This was very "sparthy" in colors. Though execution is far from his level. I'm shooting for the strong bright light effect I see in Coro's paintings. Idealy the viewer would want to squint, even though there no true bright light shining out from the surface. I need to rework the abstract blob in the back, its intended to be some ominous mothership sort of thing that is launching these flying battle suit/bots.
Still working on a acceptable color comp for this one...
