Teen Challenge 77:: Fire
Round 77 :: Fire
Fire. The topic is very open for this challenge since Dave is away and I have no idea what's happened to him I though we would have a bit of a unique TC. Credit goes To Jake Kobrin For suggesting the topic.
Fire can be whatever you want it to be, a character, a creature, an environment, a power etc etc. Try to think outside of the box and push yourself to create something finished.

This sounds like lots of fun. I started a rough sketch. I want to incorporate a fire breathing dragon fighting some warrior in a volcanic zone. It'll be interesting to render this because I've never fully rendered an environment before, but I'll try. The hardest part will be to avoid making it look cartoony.

Lilnebo: Awesome work in getting something started, I was afraid we were gonna be dead for a while.
Also smart topic, allowing freedom but keeping a cohesive theme!
You can definately add your art to the mix! There is no rules against it!
To the artists:
Ike Ike: Awesome Character design coming along there! Be careful with your pose though, top half looks like he's standing while his legs are full of motion. If you want to make him running I recommend "googling" runner's, Olympic track runners, or joggers... I think it will help the piece over all.
Ryanoir: now that you have the sketch down. I can't wait to see who this character is, where he lives, and what's his role in his society!
Ricky S: Nice sense of depth. Can't wait to see the forms more "fleshed" out. if you don't want to go cartoony then just stay away from outlines and you should be fine. Think of how the light plays with the forms for example, where is the main light source? What surfaces reflect or absorb light? and remember atmospheric perspective! I look forward to seeing your final!
Still one more week! I plan on making sketches for this tonight when I get back from School.

Ok Critique time
ike_ike: Looking really nice, love the use of the blue background to add contrast. The eye lloves contrast so the more the better Like jatari said the pose makes him looking like he's falling but he's a fire dude so he can have all sorts of power!
Watch out for the anatomy, look at hogarth/loomis and just add that to this and see the improvement in your piece. It's still early stage but Im looking forward to seeing where it'll go
Ryan: Told ya already over msn Rendering and some more refinment
Ricky: Sexy prespective, really killer to see. Also very sweet composition, Just waiting to seee what this will look like fleshed out
Jatari: very cool use of prespective, really liking the background and contrast. Good lighting and you've made cool use of it to shape form etc Really looking forward to where this will go. Only critique would be that the eyes curve too far back on the face, other wise It'd be cool to see it get more rendered and fleshed out

David W. nice concept, it will definitely have a good story! I definately want to see more of the environment the lion is in. right now I'm left wondering if the lion is performing, or learning to perform this new trick, and what's the lion's motivation?!
6 more days to work it out! Can't wait to see more!
I decided to work some more with the generic fire hero, and see what kind of narrative I can create to make him unique...I've worked on the fireball which bothered me the most, and increased the amount of contrast on the shirt, and body.
Including digital matte painting techniques through textures and the like.

thanks for the comment. that's a tough decision to make :p first i thought it would look better with the audience in the background sort of tautly waiting for the lion to jump. but on the other hand there's also something i'd like about empty seats... well i guess i'll have to force myself do draw the audience because empty seats are too easy to do
btw, excuse my, let's say, not perfect english, just in case you find any mistakes!
