This is awesome, There is so much depth to this. Can't wait to see the finished thing! Your characters look very nice. I'm not sure what the story is but it reminds me of vikings...or something.
I like it a lot.. Watching your iterative saves change on screen, I was thinking it would be cool to incorporate some of those into the actual narrative. It looked like the sun was setting or the seasons changing or something... I don't know, just an idea, because I enjoyed that part of it a lot.I love the characters you have and the giant is hilarious. As you continue I'd be careful that those smaller characters you've sketched in are readable in the final.
Your background is beautiful! I love the texture, especially in the leaves. Ha hte giant looking over the mountain is really funny and I'd love to see him finished. Once the characters are all filled in I can see it really sitting even better all together. A wonderful start!
Taylor way to go, you're a great painter. I think I like to couple in front the most. Although the Troll in the background looks like it has potential. good job
Though it's not finished, I really liked seeing the background change slightly each time when it was in slideshow mode. :) The background's atmosphere is really great and the colors are so soft and pretty. The princess lady looks great! Though I hope that the prince guy is less outlined when it's finished because the overall image has a great painterly but clear look. The characters should definitely acknowledge that giant!
The scene you've developed is really great, such great colors and depth! The one spot that i'd think about revisiting is the live created by the meeting of the ground and the mountain, maybe throw a quick swipe of something over that to make it a little hazy. I can see a big epic romance story about to go down, ooo yeah ;)
Your big dopey giant that is popping up over the mountain range is funny. I really like the goofiness that he has compared to your other two characters that are pretty much anatomically correct. I would hate to see the giant slayed, I would feel like a jerk, just like the first time I killed one of the colosi in shadow of the colossus. All in all though it is looking pretty good
The slideshow you displayed of the paintings you created of the different times of the day is great.Maybe instead of having the five characters all pop up in one image maybe have them slowly arise in the one before the last. The man showing up at the lady's porch is quick and random. Maybe have an illustration of the man head towards the porch in the background.
This reminds me of the series of a paintings Van Gogh created of a landscape of a church I believe at different times of the day. I forget what it is called. You should check it out.
I really loved seeing you work on your background- it has a lot of life to it - you are really great at working in a really beautiful, naturalistic way with digital mediums! I think the lighting is really nice, specifically on the porch - where you get this really rich shadow.I like the idea of where you are going with the characters - and I wish this were done so I could see it! I'll give you this, though - I think that the scene that is playing out in the foreground is much more sophisticated than the guy peeking over! I wonder how you'd finish it out?I could see you also putting that guy i shadow, too so it matches the lighting you've set up in the background! I also think that you have some really great atmospheric action happening in the background, too and if you were able to keep the characters back there consistent with your bkgrd, that would be fantastic!I know this is a couple days late, but I wanted to also let you know that I am super happy that we got to have class together. You're super fun and you have a really amazing, wonderful way of bringing the "human" qualities of traditional medium into your digital stuff. It's rare to see that - totally keep doing it! I really really enjoyed having you in class and just wanted to say thanks for always being super fun and willing to stick with me on all these projects ;)
