tea concept by comrade-carpet tea concept by comrade-carpet
Francois' langur: Well, I think I would have to agree with you on that point, my fine gentleman. However, on the other hand, I must say you are quite the flaming asshole.
Leif: Indeed, indeed.

This is just some concept art for a much bigger picture I want to do for RGYoung777, but I have run up to a brick wall. Basically I have no freaking idea how to do perspective. :( Any helpful tips or directions to tutorials?

I'm really aggravated right now on the limitations on my art. I wish I had a larger grasp on better media. All I can use half-way decent is micron pens and prisma pencils. Even those I can't use that well. Ugh, I really don't even know where to start. I have all these big amazing ideas that I just can't get on paper. blah blah blah angst about art and such....

The chair surprisingly enough started out as a very proper victorian chair. I don't know what happened to it. :confused:

You tools may be limited but I think your ability is not!
I have a lot of pictures I can't get on paper because of perspective, too. I think it holds a lot of us back. :D

Quite the sophisticated, evil gathering you’ve portrayed there. Complete with top-hat, feet-cuffs, those cigarette ‘extenders’, and of course plenty of tea held in the proper manner. Pinky toe out for etiquette of course.

The design of the chair is most fashionably evil in its appearance, as you’ve crafted it so stylishly with the stretched skin interior and a lovely sewed muscle exterior. The hooves were most notably a great touch for being, quite literally, the legs of the chair. Now as for the characters, I have to say without a doubt that Mr. Francois' langur is quite the comically, wicked primate there. His delightfully crazed look, and Don King ‘do, complete with his excessive sideburns, is merely too much for me not to express a mannerly chortle. Leif on the other hand, seems to emulate the suitably ‘gentleman’ look quite well (at least in the way he holds his tea cup) despite his possibly malevolent self. Though I have yet to learn more of your characters before I really say anything of their repute.

In all, I feel you did a rather smashing job for the concept. Though I can’t be of much help in the tips department, I do hope that the final product turns out exactly how you want it to. :)

comrade-carpet Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2005

I have to give you props for drawing of all things monkies, indeed. You are the most spot on person i know when it comes to the anatomy of creatures outside of one's comfort zone.
I stared at it forever, trying to think of some perspective advice to give you and realized that the chair was made of muscle. Then I thought, you definately love those microns and are a nut for detail (you weren't kidding that one time, were you?). And then this crazy person kept IM'ing me and I kept losing track of my comment-in-progress. Finally, I got to where I could finish it and I looked back at the picture once again and realized that not only was the chair made of muscle, but the legs were that of a horse, indeed.

Very interesting, I do say *puffs pipe* <-- your novel for the day
