Dragon Sphinx- Update w/ more Thumnails 6/8/2012
Hello CA members,
I am in the early stages of a conceptual piece to depict a Dragon Sphinx in its environment. Here is some of the work I have completed, and if anyone has any input for me on what to change and how to then proceed from here it would be much appreciated.
I have collected a number of rock and cliff references and will look to further develop the drawing based on what I learn from them. Then, I'll tackle the black and white values. I'd like to have the head of the sphinx itself as the focal point, but if anyone has other ideas for this I'm open to suggestions.
Please feel free to draw and paint over my work to clarify points. Thanks!

Uh..I'm not sure if it's just me, but I'm having trouble 'reading' your thumbnails?
That being said, you might want to also try exploring different camera angles; what would it look like as an upshot, etc? You don't have a lot of variation in your current thumbnails.

I'd use less opacity and more solid values for thumbnails. As Alice said a bit hard to read the thumbnails. Block in the shapes to give a stronger idea of the forms and landscape.

I have gone back and done more thumbnails at different angles to give a wider selection. Some of them have a more Temple-ish aspect, but I think we can work with this theme too. If you guys could pick your favorites for me and then I can work on refining them.
Good advice on the values. They are currently a bit hesitant, so for the next batch I want to make them a lot stronger and more readable.

Nice thumbnails! I like the last one (of the first page on post #4,) to the right, also the one above it, and I think the one you've got on the last page, in the middle, to the left, could be an interesting set up, however I can't read it too well. If you work more on the last one to the left, you could have something pretty cool there too. Why not number them next time so it's easier to refer to them? And once again, these are fantastic! Keep it up
