Sorry guys that it's been a rough start for me. Today has been pretty hectic... trying to multi task everything but I am slowly getting there. I should get everything in order soon. Chat to you guys soon.
just checkin in, I'm going to run to central london, but in the evening I will catch up on all posted here and there, promise. and to make some sketches in opencanvas ( brilliant for sketching!) about my ideas
I have some time this evening and night, so I will do some reference-hunting, mood-board setting etc. Tomorrow I'm again back to my usual day-style which means tons of free time opposite my computer its just today that was deadly busy.
Hi everyone! I need some time until I will realize who is who, but I can start drawing without this knowledge so worry not my dear friends!
Awesome Awesome Kenneth. I'll drop these sketches in and try working using your moods and characters. I saw a few of those same pictures, but for some reason, it didn't tickle me fancy. In this big group, however, it's a whole different feel.
Lynda says Hi from another dimension.

Yo, dwardo-I just saw your mood pics-AWESOME. We are on the same wavelength. I am into the green/ blue un-saturation. More mood. If you google images Waterhouse paintings you will see a mood I really like.
Another thing we should figure out is some kind of story. We are so all over the board we need to tie down to some basic story concepts.
I would never have found Waterhouse if you hadn't mentioned it. A lot of fabrics and flow. That's 5 weeks of rendering time if I were to get with it. Bahahaha. [I'll update this post with something useful laters.].
waterhouse just has a nice cold pallet with a few strong colors-especially red. We dont need lots of cloths-but the pallet is something I am into.
Also-for everyone else on the story section this is what we roughly have thus far.
who-Gods? magicians? Mortals?
where- distant universe, everything is made up
when- in an age where science and fantasy mix! How exciting!
why- maybe a disease, war or some other intense time of trial.
Something to give our characters tasks.
I was some time ago deep into shadowrun (google it!) where story of our world getting mixed with fantasy begins with: "one day charter flight from china to japan saw dragon flying alongside"
who - mortals dealing with gods
where/why - border mountains between fighting countries - this would bring at least two main species(elf/dwarf kind of species I mean) together
when - we are looking for mythology inspiration? then logically I would go for roman/greek/egyptian/sumerian/etc empire kind of setting
