Crusader work pic
So me and the other concept guys at work have this little 'mini-challenge' happening. We've all got until this Monday, 14th April 2008, to come up with a folio piece based on the subject: "Knight on his way back from one of the crusades". The setting has been left open so we're not restricted to medieval stuff, so thats where these thumbs come in.
What better time to try out some new techniques!
Things I want to avoid: Comic stuff. Stereotypical stuff.
Things I'm aiming for: A shot that looks 'natural' - like its been taken from a news report. Something that conveys scale & depth & mood. Realistic rendering. A sci-fi/fantasy twist. Focus on lighting and composition. And the big one: implied detail - I want to stay rough here and not spend hours on unnecessary detail.
