    Newborn-Nickillus Nibbles

    OK then. It seems we're off, and I've had a five minute scribble to get a first sketch going.
    Really looking forward to seeing what the big boys and girls come up with. Do hoe they are going to start threads and share the process - pretty please.

    That's some great anatomy, Nick. Looking forward to what you come up with.

    I guess I'll start a thread too, seeing as other people are

    Thanks Si.

    Oh Yes - You really have to start a thread. I don't think I 'd forgive you if I didn't get to watch the process, young Baron.

    Tiny bit more on mine - with the proportions are all over the shop. It will have to change a lot. Still very early days though.

    Pretty dramatic poses. What does have you in mind? Words would be helpful, especially at this stage.

    Famine survivor.
    Fragile yet tough.

    Slapped a back tone in and started playing with placement of a few more figures. I'll most probably extend the canvas of to the right, with what I've got in mind.

    I thought you were going for a shipwreck raft at first, but it'll be interesting to see how this pans out Nice sketchwork!

    Hard not to be impressed by Gericault's Raft of the Medusa. Yep - love that painting, and there's no doubt that it must be influencing me somehow.

    Thinking of a more socially responsible pic, which isn't like me. I'll probably snap out of it before the deadline and go with something daft instead. Just playing about with this for the moment though. Some very loose colour, and have added a canvas extension to the right - not a conservatory. Hundreds of miles to go with it. . . . .

    Mmm, looking yummy. You've already got a palpable mood developing and I like where you're going with the light. Will be interesting to see how you build on it.

    Hi guys,
    That's the chalk tool in ArtRAge that makes it look gritty LightSovereign.

    I'm not sure exactly where it's going either, Si. Nor am I sure I like where it's going. Hmmmmmm! We'll see.
    Another half hour spent on it, muddying the waters.

    You totally nailed the colors that go right with your theme. If you change the scene in anyway, I think you should still keep this color palette.

    You've got the mood mate, tho your perspective is off as we travel from left to right of the picture.

    Thanks guys.
    Yep. Persective all over the place, Brashen. Spot on with that. On the over-loooong list of things I need to fix.
    Little bit more playing around, beginning to place where other featrues might be.

    I'm also learning to count. After two stages saying wip4, this one woud be no.6 then. (Duh!) Have to get my shoes and socks off to make sure I keep counting properly as I go on.
