Returned to work on my previous forest concept and take it further. Earlier, I noticed a little lack of secondary focal points to play on as tutor Phil also suggested. Thus, I felt the the composition suited the addition of a dinosaur or another sort of creature to work with, which would further emphasise the sense of scale and space within the piece.
Started to block in the silhouette of a Allosaurus dinosaur - one of many species encountered in the Lost World.
Played with the scale for a more larger than life theatrical composition
Some added details and refinements to the general composition
I am pleased with the direction the piece has taken so far, feeling it has the potential to go all the way as a final piece. Its working much better with the addition of an Allosaurus dinosaur working as another focal point to the piece where it was previously lacking, perhaps even a little sense of drama too. Will continue to work on it soon enough, with refinements, lighting and hopefully colour. Thoughts and feedback most appreciated.
Some references I used for the Allosaurus.
