I am currently working on a fantasy painting:
- I want to show some hero who is about to leave his home on a gas balloon.
- I thought it would be nice if the balloon basket was assembled to resemble a dragon.
- The scenery is supposed to be a dramatic landscape with lots of high waterfalls.
Here's what I've come up with until now:
basic composition sketches:
concepts for the protagonist:
balloon shape ideas:
I wanted to include some architecture like this one, representing the protagonist's home:
BW composition sketch:
Here is a color sketch I did today. This is how I imagine the lighting situation.
This is also my current attempt on the composition. I would love to hear what I could improve on that last wip-image. Of course, it is all very rough, but the focus should be on the overall concept right now.
