V2 of the Fool. I think I will go with this one for the pose, still needs anatomy and comp fixes. The swirly thingy at the bottom is the ABYSS!
The ghost version needs a lot of fixing too but I think that will happen once I start painting. Need to do some color tests next.
Holy shit shamagim. Your sketches blast my mind. Also liking the other cards a lot, but I have a sketch fetish and... yeah, damn good sketches!!! You all already put a ton of work in too, which make me feel like a huge slacker. No Dragon Age tonight and back to the drawing board.
You represent the cups somehow by drawing in containers or basins that the black 'toxins' are flowing into. I'm not sure which variation you decided on, but it might be cool to incorporate that somehow. Maybe make the moon bigger too, so the elements are overlapping-selling the depth a bit better maybe. Just one idea. Anyhow, eager to see where you take it.
I would've kept going but two factors kept me from it.. 1. 3:31 A.M 2. Ryan suggested I do the wheel as a start up in 3d... as I have never done that and it would actually save me time, I'm gonna go and learn some google sketch up and work on the wheel's perspective. ...and guys..I love this challenge, and I love mah team XOXXOOXOXOXO
Hey Ryan, that was a good idea. I was starting to fear that replacing the concept of a recipient might be going to far outside the original concept. It makes much more sense this way since before he could be releasing stuff, but it wasn't clear that he was getting rid of it. A recipient would clearly show that he's leaving it behind.
And tho this might or might not be the step towards the final one, here's a line drawing of it. It's tough to get 8 things going to 8 other things and a guy standing there .
Karla, yup, ellipses= hell. 3d = good, even if its just to get the drawing right . Attachment 875530
Still working on this one, it might take some more work before the all that stuff I'm trying to cram into the picture makes sense.
