Superstition - WIP thoughts?

  • Thumbnailed a few ideas for this month's contest and everything was feeling unoriginal, but finally settled on the idea of focusing on rabbit's feet, 4 leaf clovers and danger/misfortune. Personally I think B will probably tell the best story and fit's in the month's idea by having some unknown creatures in the forest hunting down rabbits to take their feet and using 4 leaf clovers to lure them in. I think C would be fun, but it is perhaps a little too dark a concept 😕 and A could have some great lighting but I feel that it might be hard to convey the idea of "superstition" over the rest.

    I'd like to hear everyone else's thoughts on the concepts and if there is anything you would adjust or suggest to add.


  • @Gary-Wilkinson I like B best. I think the story reads best in it and I think it is a darkly funny and ironic take on the whole rabbit's foot thing. I think it reads the as the best composition based on the thumbnails, too.

    I like both A and B -probably A a little more because of the danger surrounding the bunnies, and the companion bunnies noticing that something isn’t right. Makes you look around the image more. But both are great!

  • @Gary-Wilkinson I love B. The comp is beautiful. The story is funny. Looking forward to see the progress on this.

    @Gary-Wilkinson I like the idea of C but that is because I have a twisted mind. But overall B reads the best for me.

  • Love your sketches! I would pick C's theme and rework it to be much more dramatic and sinister in the horror genre. Can't wait to see your final work!

    BTW, loved your vacation gone wrong illo!

  • B and C cracked me up. Maybe I prefer B though as C is a little dark but its still funny lol

  • Been super busy with my new book, but thought I would jump back in and try and complete this painting by the end of the day. I played around a lot with the color choices, and found it really hard to mix a light scene transitioning into a dark scene. I also decided against having the clovers lit up on the ground and instead changed the little creatures in the forest to have them on their head as a trap.

    Still a bit to go, but i'm happy with where the foundation of the painting is.
