Yeah, Hygami... I think we should refine the concepts in the work we are doing now, but perhaps do a new piece for the final - considering dynamic pose/composition, etc. where as in the sketches, I haven't been worried so much about those things. I think I also want to write up who everyone is and what they do (for reals for reals ) before we dive into the finals, so that we have a nice, solid sense of character in the pieces. I want us to kick serious ass and take many names.
I don't, however, think anything here is throwaway - everything will be used to pull together the finished piece.
Also, thinking format... Do we want to present all of the characters in one image, or make something more like a character card? Or can we think of something else entirely that hasn't been done? They could be formal painted portraits to mimic the time period. We could present it like it was bound in a book... Just something to mull over while we push forward.
I'm putting Perfume on my netflix today, will take many hi-res screencaps for us as soon as it comes in - I am more and more into using that film's palettes in our project, make it nice and moody.
And thanks, Kimbee! So glad you came over!

yeah Markus and I had something similar in mind
so we could do all of these
1. We take our crayscale paintings and make the cards so that our concepts don't get lost and you have a good face closeup please pleas please forgive the crappyness!! just for the idea!!
EDIT: Markus gave it a more "booky" style !!!!!! thanks mate!!
2. We create a book: we take in our environments and the way they behave and such (the attack board concepts I did)
the good thing is these are reaaly fast not a big thing to pull off since we have everything byproducing concepts
and last but not least the lineup
so here we have a cleric monkey EDIT:
well if you think the monkey doesn't fit in, read this little story (which will be extended)
The revotion against the humans has begun. They even ask their friend from abroad (east asia) to ccome fight for freedome

I absolutely LOVE the idea of doing it like book pages! Not only would it unify the presentation, but none of our material would go wasted.
I loved the idea so much, I made a quick set from our sketches to show you what I had in mind! I think we could go nuts with the script and maybe even put some aged gilding on the pages. I like this format better than the lineup because it gives each individual character their chance to shine, while still staying true to the overall style. It would also give us a perfect opportunity to incorporate the character's description with their portrait!
RAD idea, everyone!
