As you travel closer and closer to the speed of light your vision is twisted and warped to a cone in front of you. The light near and around the center of your vision is turned blue, as it is rapidly approaching. The light at the periphery of your vision is shifted red as it flies past you. Also all clocks, biological, mechanical and atomical tick slower and slower. They nearly stop at 99.9% light speed.
...but yea, screwin' around with some colours. probably warp the scenery around a bit....
Scrapped the developement from yesterday, went back to the thumbnails and came up with this, still roughly deciding the details and composition but i think i'm gonna start rendering tommorow and getting down to business... i hope.
The time on the graves counts down the time until that person will die, once it hits 12:00 father time must go and collect them to bring them to their grave, that grave will then be replaced with another to begin a new countdown. The large hourglass counts down Father Time’s death, once it has completed its cycle Father Time himself will be taken to death by his replacement - the cycle continues.
Crits tomorrow, but fuck me there's some great ideas coming through, and ARRGH!....that's one hell of a sketch man!
I'm still struggling with mine, my sense of design is awful, and so far most of what I've tried to add to the costume has been too much. I'm hoping that adding some colours will give me a few more ideas....
Also...is it just me that's waiting for Rusty to step in and blow me away!?....just me?.....:p
I got a little more done tonight, putting the character into some semblance of context. Really struggling with the moon cycle thing. I'll most likely either totally erase them and start them from scratch or just erase them and put something other kind of glyph on the wall behind him.
Business dictates that's all I can do for tonight.
Heres my concept, though i still don't know how i will depict death...
Please Critc!!! since its my first CHOW!!!
Also don't forget to visit my lowly SB, I will do the same!!
Gangsta Father Time!!!
Mephistoau - religious imagery intentional for sure on this end. I'm loving how adorable and wrinkly yours is. It's a really fresh view for this.
danlambert - The addition of skull in the back is pretty badass if I do say so myself.
nAniA - he's looking a bit sugary, if that makes sense? Has a very david bowie in labyrinth sort of aesthetic. (That's not a bad thing either. >>)
Here's what I've got so far. He's going so slowly.
Great stuff, all, my favorites of those I've been able to scan through are those of danlambert (very spooky!) and ARRGH! (very "alive" sketch!)
Here's my wip
heres another wip,
MadHatter will totally change the pocket watch, good call, didn't look at ref and just thought I'd wing it... my bad.
Going to stick with the skinny Indy jeans, was trying for a Japanese fighting game type look, so I wanted him to be strong and sexy, dressed in mod clothes...But old and wise..
Anyway pretty close to finished...
