Hey guys, did a quick concept, this guy's supposed to summon his "familiar" via means of his calligraphy brush; would greatly appreciate any critiques; I'm not too satisfied with the composition of the piece, as i usually struggle with composition and dont really notice it until way too late into my progress..
Thanks for looking!
The pose of the summoner is working pretty good and I was kind of getting that the creature was coming from the thing he was hold but it was a little unclear that the object was a brush perhaps define it a little better.
The overall creature design is cool and I dig the details but it looks more mad at the summoner than being faithful and his pose feels so slanted and I really feel that it could be more dynamic. Perhaps have that stretching out pose with the arms out to the side and back arched. Right now both his hands and head are all going in the same direction.
Hopes this helps.
Imagination is not a total internal power but rather it is a reflection and multi-faceted projection of our experiences and knowledge. We take in information from the world around us and intuitively re-order it into something new. Something is not created from nothing but simply transformed from what was before.
Nice concept. You need to get some sharper detail into the summoner- he need to be at least somewhat close in detail to the monster, since he's a big part of the narrative, and it's downright impossible to see that he's using a calligraphy brush. For the creature himself, I like it so far, but you want to rework those hands.
Hey guys, thanks so much for the critiques, i've been kinda tied up at work; sorry for the late replies!
Grandmassa - Thanks for the suggestion I did some thumbnails, i think it just didnt translate well or i didnt get my basic composition right the first time, hehe.
Ito - That's some great observations, I agree with the "angry" part, haha. I'll work on the pose!
Chagan - Thanks You're right, i thought i'd leave him purposefully unfinished but i think its not really working at the moment.
