    Father Time(Again!)

    So here's my re-started CHOW piece. Not enough time to finish before poll, but definitely worthwhile starting over. I learned a starting and re-starting this piece, not the least of which, how to use reference properly!

    By no means is this piece finished yet. I'd put it at a general lighting comp stage right now. Which means there's still endless hours of rendering to go before it's even close to portfolio material.

    Any comments or crits would be great.

    Cheers!

    His screaming seems to be a bit out of place with the scene. It's cool that's he's screaming, but if you're going to go that route maybe you could add more drama to the piece instead of having him just stand there. Maybe change up the perspective or add blood to his scythe or put him at someone's bedside. Since you're not entering it to CHOW you can ignore the rules they set up for submissions if you choose.

    These are just random ideas, though. The technical side of it looks pretty straightforward to me.

    Thanks for stopping by Meketaten. You are totally right about pushing the piece further conceptually, more thumbnails exploring different storytelling possibilities would have been a great way to do this.

    "Maybe change up the perspective or add blood to his scythe or put him at someone's bedside."
    After I finish up this piece, those would be some great situations to explore with the character.

    Thanks man!

    I think the silhouette could be much better. You don't have to go with my paint over, but you need to do something about it.

    Keep working on the edges. You need more contrast.
