Been trying my hand at some more thumbnail sketches to get ideas down for my concepts - using pen, pencil and some alcohol based markers. They may be a bit messy but it helps in visualising ideas quickly to be able to work with.
These focus mainly on a forest scene that have been untouched by man following the idea with overhanging vines, wild overgrowth and huge trees with elaborate roots. There are one or two thumbnails concerning a scene where the hero Malone climbs atop a tree to gaze across the landscape of the plateau, or Maple White Land as the characters decide to name it.
I will be referring to these for some later digital painting concepts, experimenting and refining the look, feel and composition.
