Try not to take a week for concepting...it's a hard lesson to learn, but you'll be better for it.

Why do you say that katana? Having your complete end result to work off of make for less guess work in the end.

I'm just throwing ideas at the wall atm and seeing what sticks, really haven't even decided on a topic yet....

Sorry, yea, because i blew a week on painting out a nice toon for DW3 and ended up rethinking my design. The second idea was an evening sketch. Sometimes it's better to just get the basic idea in, just like blocking out your 3d form and then noodle the details...what ever works for you, I just found that it bogged me down, and I never got those 40+ hours back, to the extent, i had no chance of finishing...burnt...Anyway, good luck.

Thing is though i don't think he ment spending one week purly on one design. what ur talking about aint realy concept. its more having one idea and sticking to it till u don't like it anymore. What I think deadly freeze in the concepting week is to spend it on doing as many different forms and rough designs as possible. hopefully finding a design he likes and then adding the detail in later.

really digging the girl on the left with the arms coming out of her back. Think a lot could be done with that idea.

I'm liking the "dog," because that's a bit creepy, but I don't think its strong enough to stand on its own...and the dude in the cage, cause that's just cool. How about putting the cage with the dude in it, on the back of the dog-thing?

I have a pretty linear work flow down so I'm not so worried but thanks for the advice. I'll be sure to come and yell at you if you start bogging down this year. lol

Ya I'm pretty much dicking around see'ing what comes up then keep the things I like and dump the things I don't. Coming up with a strong idea is basically it, everything else is just technical work once you have that.

Another round...

Nice job scheduling freeze. I think that's really going to help keep you organized in the long run.

Really cool concepts too. I really like the 3rd one of what you've posted so far, I think you could expand a lot on that.
