Before I took one of these guys further I felt I needed to exhaust the possibilities a little more. Felt there was more gold in there if I dug a little further.

I tend to just use my sketchbook just for me, for ideas on composition or story or design. This helps as I'm loathed to forget stuff and this holds me until I get time in front of a computer. Also sometimes the idea losses lustre so it never makes it that far so it's a good way to weed out the weak ideas.

A bit more on the graphic side of things but I wanted to concentrate on design. My next stage will be to develop one more then translate it to a more photoreal style. Strong design will translate (hopefully)

Thought I'd try another approach to some Ra work. I used the freeform lasso and draw the shapes then painted into the shapes. Once I had what I wanted I did another drawing pass and draw over the top. Typing that doesnt really sounds like a new approach a lot people have one approach for painting and another for sketchbook drawings I wanted to try and combine the two somehow.

A concept image of the main character of the Ra Universe. His name is Saul (latvian for Sun or something :) ) he' lives on the streets of Ra. Note the slightly religious placement of the sun in the backdrop.
