May 3rd thursday thumbnails



  • I'm working on my idea. The Cracker I got is: Your aims are high and you are capable of much. So I thought I would do a man in a paper airplane. I was thinking the paper airplane is his CV (resume) so I was just doing some tests for a interesting angle. I think I will do buildings below him to represent the high flying job he wants. what do you think? Any suggestions welcome 🙂0_1461689044468_IMG_20160426_164846 (1).jpg



  • @Jason-Bowen Personally I like the angle of the last one. I love how creative your idea is.



  • I love your idea, I think it really conveys the message! Compositionally, I would probably try to include the horizon - it seems to go along with the idea of aims. Maybe also putting a particularly high building or a tower that stands out from the rest of the "city" and is the "aim" of the resume-surfing guy.



  • Great idea! I can see it being really beautiful! I love the last one, the angling upward fits the "high" aims more to me.



  • I like the 2nd thumbnail. Nice idea.



  • @smceccarelli thanks I will think about that when I do a few more sketches. 🙂



  • I love paperplane idea, it's so cool:)
    The woohoo-roller-coaster expression of the first guy, is really funny. I like the presence of a city on the second thumbnail, for me it really connects with CV and job hunting, but at this angle image seems really static and calm. And the last thumbnail also catched my eye, mostly because that angle of paper plane is really nice.
    Good luck.



  • Here is the udated version of the Paper airplane idea, any thoughts? 0_1462049185385_Paper airplane.jpg



  • I like how you brought this idea forward - it is a really nice concept. I think your rendering style is not consistent throughout the image at this point: you have strong linework on the characters, while the plane, building and clouds have no line and soft edges. My impression is that the image would be stronger with a consistent render style. Maybe even only line and cell shading?
    Maybe you already planned to do this, but in the Western world the direction of movement is usually to the right, because we are so used to reading anything from left to right.
    I love the character with the drink!



  • great responses, and neat start here, I have never seen a building like this with open windows that people look out of... the best guy is the guy at the left with the long hair...



  • @smceccarelli Thanks for the tips I will try to improve things 🙂
