Here is my final entry. Enjoy.
I've been teaching for a while and I've been out of the game. I want to shift back into it with a portfolio of new and exciting work.
This image is essentially a self-portrait in the sense that I need to cut loose from the things in life that keep me safe and take some risks or die trying.
I still intend to finish my spaceman, but I thought I might try to put out some other concepts that might illicit a reaction. No one has commented, so maybe you might comment on this one. It's inspired by Acapulco Cliff Divers.
I haven't decided if I should put in a doctor with a catcher's mitt or perhaps a fishing rod. I was thinking about making it like the kid is coming out because the doctor is holding a Wacom Tablet for him, but that doesn't really make any sense. What do you think?
last one looks good
i think there needs to be more of an environment or something other than a gray background. Even if its just splashes of color, but i think if you explore that area of the drawing you will be headed in the right direction...
just my 2 cents
cool brother, I figured you would but I wanted to just say something just in case.
Cant wait to see it
Strange, I haven't seen your thread before. I thought I browsed them all.
I like your first idea, although nobody will know it's a self-portrait. I can clearly see it's someone who got cut free and is up to a fight, so it's cool.
I like the idea of the first one but the baby umbilical cord jumping grosses me out lol
The spaceman is looking good - maybe you could try a different angle though with some perspective or an angle where we can see the man's face. Or perhaps you could combine the spaceman with the other one and show a large subtly woman-shaped spaceship that the spaceman's umbilical cord has 'broken free' of - like birth and death at the same time.
