AVATAR – 2D – ajinak – ‘Newborn’

Hi people,

this contest sounds really exciting and for me it should also be a big challenge, because until now I have always been creating pictures just how it arised. This time I'd love to work with ideas and sketches first, before I touch my tablet. Hopefully this early post will push me to work and finish it.

My first thoughts are still quite misty, but I know the title already - the "Newborn" - I'm using it as a working name for the picture I'm doing now and this word has intriguing atmosfere to my imagination. Something like an awakening to a new world, that is quite different from ours, more dangerous and also fascinating. I'll see what I come up with, hopefully soon. I guess I 'see' the pose of that main character already

Take care..

UPDATE: I saw some people use attachement in the first post to show the last stage - it sounds like a good idea, I'm trying it:

Hi,
today I started some sketching, still not the entire scene, but I'm slowly sorting my thoughts.. trying different poses and so on.. please don't be laughing on that poor creature sketched in colour I think I will put some of these in the picture and maybe some other kinds of 'animals' - strange beings should fit well to my rising sort of fairytale concept..

Munkybutt: thanks..

I did some quick sketches today, focused on that creature and it turned out to be very funny.. on the first sight it may look cute, but when it feels scared or hunts for food (it just loves all those insects), it shows its real face.. in fact he is a little devil
They use a strange camouflage, stand near to streaky flowers and tall grass and totally disappear..

I'm curious how this turns out in the end..

UPDATE: my boyfriend have just noticed me that this animal resembles a lot ferret.. well, as I see he's right.. what a proof that almost everything has a real decent in something

Another very rough sketch and again I won't have time, because my next exam is horribly close... I will work on colours later, it won't probably be so pale (and messy)... and of course those creatures are still missing

So you've finally started the painting, cool.

I wonder where they will hide...

It's funny because in my scenery i got three "moss-crabs" hiding too, creatures are always so timid...

Just some more quick sketching, because I'm a bit in hurry (leaving for a couple of days my tablet, but I just had to make something )
Still messy, I have to clean the picture first in my head.. I realized that almost 2 months without more painting makes it a bit harder now, I have to get into it again.. so maybe some update on monday..

Monday morning update..
Still thinking about colours.. first I wanted them to be quite cold or pale, but I'm a little bit worried with the fact I always paint in such inexpressive way.. I should call it a 'style', but I'm slowly starting to hate it.. I really need more glaring colours well, maybe next time..

ANOTHER UPDATE:
(evening)




And something new, from nearly midnight:
(back to the original idea I had in some sketches.. as I see, almost everything in the scene has some roots in reality.. I will write more about that later.. hopefully there will be time to work soon..)

Even unfinished, your work already looks really magic to me.

I like it it has a good environment.

I did some work on the creature, but those few steps aren't worth posting, maybe tomorrow I'll have time to improve it a bit more and then show..

You have a bit of a surreal feel in the image makes me want to see more and wonder what's to come.

I finally found some time for update.. still not finished, but it's getting closer.. I guess I'll have to put those pieces of dreams into the story soon (well, it is a bit strange story)
