awesome pencil work, about that good deed, i know it's been done several times but what about a dove. you could have a human hand coming out of the light, having just let-go of the dove. i think that would be very symbolic
I think for the color scheme, it depends how you wanna swing it. If you wanna make it seem more human and relatable, then go for a fleshy kinda color. The green and blue skins seem a lot more alien to me.
yo ed, just wondering if you'd consider this symbol I was thinking about "good deed". This may sound cheezy and over used, but my idea of good deed is a child or children, not a newborn baby, but a child who's already capable of thinking that's why they're asking a lot of things about everything around them.
Children speak with their hearts, and they say exactly how they feel and what they think. They don't care about war, nor corruption, hate, racial discrimination, and they consider everyone equal in their playground, and all they care about is play. There's even one song in our language that says: "children holds the time, and thru them, you'll find the answers in life" (or something like that). in our country children are symbol of joy and hope, People tends to forget conflicts when they're around....
It's just that I have no idea how you could effectively portray that in your composition.
Just my two cents though.
Thanks a bunch for sharing your art. I'm learning a lot, and hope I can dig deeper and learn more, for I personally like your technique. We somehow got the same idea for an entry piece, but on a whole different context though.
Best of luck mate! we are watching !
