    Blue lineart

    hi guys... got finally a bit time for this...

    Here`s the first rough linework.. Its going to be a very dark stempunky picture. It shows an entertainer at work... and the big machine in the background helps him bringing his imagination to life...

    Lovely work, I've been waiting with baited breath to see what your composition was like after seeing those lovely sketches at the start and you have not dissapointed . . . great work. Can't wait now to see some colour.

    i think it's coming together quite nicely master.mind ! maybe some punchier highlights, more colours and lighting variation here and there could go a long way. a lot of that awesome linework you did in the sketch gets lost in the darker areas, and it gets a littel muddy in places. you could play with the values a bit and get some more depth, particularly to the right where it feels it should fall back into the haze a bit. feels a bit dark overall. i like the subject and composition a lot. nice work !

    Nice

    Got something of a lonesome navigator. Or perhaps a bit of those aliens of "Alien", who were sitting in their chairs at the beginning of that movie (though they were dead already).

    I also admit not to lose all your lining within the dark shadows. Perhaps adding some bright edges in order not to lose them all.

    silliKONe : Thank you very much, that`s what i call a good critique! I`m working on these points. But don`t worry about the linedrawing, I`ll remove it in a later stage if I start with the actual painting...

    DeadInTheAttic: thanks, yeah in the end there won`t be any lines anymore, just form and value.... i hope so

    Man, I could have SWORN I posted on this thread before . . . guess not.

    I thought I'd said I really, really dig the jester hat aspect of his helmet. It's fascinatingly incongruous, but comes together quite strongly. I think the gesture of his slump would be strengthened by simply narrowing the ellipse of his facemask vertically.

    Looking forward to seeing how this renders up.

    i actually really dig the line work, but it sounds like you have something special up your sleeve. i look forward to the evolution of this one!

    Very nice piece so far, one suggestion though. Try to build more contrast between your focal point and the background. He is kind of lost in the muddy mid-tones. Darken the bg more or lighten him up a bit and it will read tons better.

    hi great sketch you have there and an intresting concept as well
    silliKONe gave some great advice so i'll just try to add a bit to what he said
    about the color i'm sure you will add it later just a little advice if you would
    use less saturated color where you want the focal point to be and as it goes
    away from the focal point you should use the more saturated colors
    this way the area where the focal point is will pop out the moment
    someone will see the work and this will be the first place his eyes would go

    hope it will help you
    and keep up the good work

    I really love how this is coming out so far, although I think you may be getting ahead of yourself on the glow of the projection. I'd get some texture in there too, if you're going for steampunk there should be some grit in the corners of all those pipes and stuff. The only thing I'm confused about is the entertainer's position. He's bringing the projection to life, but he looks very dead or at least disinterested. I would expect him to be looking at his creation. I do love the feel of this, and the colors though. And your linework is fantastic! I can't comprehend working in lines Good luck, we don't have much time!!

    ThinMint- thanks. Yeah sure grit, textures, ornaments and a lot of details are coming soon..
    the position of the entertainer looks lame and dead on purpose. the big machine sucks all his imagination and life out of him...

    by the way, you have some nice lifedrawings in your sketchbook
