The Running Man...

What you see above is my latest commission for a client. The concept was simple enough... draw a man running through a jungle with a bomb going off behind him. There is a deeper meaning behind this image, but I will not get into it. What I will get into though is the sketches that I did for it. So scroll down and see how this image came to be.

1. This was the first sketch that I came up with. I like the idea of the character frantically running towards the foreground. But ultimately my client wanted a more controlled almost jog like run.

2. This sketch was my personal favorite to be absolutely honest. I just liked the idea of the three quarter view and the exaggerated perspective. But... ultimately it comes down to what the client wants.

3. This one was simply a close up of the Character with a lot more foliage taking up the space. This... was my least favorite.

4. This was the Final work up sketch which was the amalgamation of what the client liked of all the previous sketches . So I took this and cleaned it up before laying down the color. I hope you all like what you see.
