    My concept: Metaphorical Self-Portrait

    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.

    Line Drawing

    Here's the line drawing. I'll address proportion corrections next.

    Since no one commented...

    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?

    Worked on the Values a little bit

    Added some value and created a more detailed hose. I will soon be adding more detail and getting rid of the line drawing.

    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

    Wink Thanks for the feedback

    There will be a background, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

    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.

    You're right. Self-portrait is the wrong term. It's more self-inspired in terms of losing a job and that feeling of falling.

    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.
