Point of conflict!!!

Here's a watercolor I did of the master strangling the boy. I thought it would be dramatic. I guess this is something of a precursor to the upcoming "cast design" posting. At least I have 2 of the characters in here. So far, I favor Simini's design of the "wounded tiger" master (I'm using too many quote markers...) and Jake's original design of the boy remains popular. I don't know how simplified this should be. Obviously the concept art will most likely remain more detailed than the finalized animatable designs we decide on. I hope to simplify and modify these designs & post something later with everyone in an animatable fashion. Could someone post a list of exactly who everyone in the cast is? I can think of the boy, the master, mom, dad, the water spirit... who else? Let me know what you think of this design so I can have direction as to how I should tweak this for later posts.

I like the boy especially, it's much more visually interesting than the base design I put up a year ago or whatever. I think that the Master would lose some of his rear-admiral look if we draped him more, y'know? He has this master-and-commander thing going on with the wardrobe, and I feel like looser, robes-ier clothing would help.

That said... I wish I could be you sometime or another. We should plan that out. Pick a day. I could get a little painting done and have incredible style. Just for an afternoon or something.

Y'know. It's casual.

I think this picture is going definitely in the right direction, but I want him to have more anger. LOTS more anger and coldness to him. I think the smile makes me want to warm up to the master more than I would like.

Oh, by the way, what are you doing next Thursday, Jake? We could be each other for a day--that is, if you're not too busy...

Thursday is no good; I need to be me for some photos and wedding business. Anytime after August 5th is great, though. With respect to robes: more, longer, looser. Sorry about my engrish. It... it sucks. I know.
