Concept : Family

More concept lines, but these are for separate stories and separate authors. I am just throwing ideas out there and waiting for their feedback.
It's hard trying not to get too 'deep' into them as I knew that they are still just within concept sketching phase, but I sometimes do forget and I just had to stop myself.
Thank you so much for all your feedback and comments on my previous post. I really do appreciate the encouragement and the warm welcome from everyone of you. It's almost like coming back to a cozy home after a long travel. You guys are all AWESOME! ^^

  2. oooh, love these! I really like that combination of realistic and a little comic/manga-ish! :)
    Your customers will love them too, I'm sure!
    (What kind of project is this? Illustrations for a book?)

  4. I think they're really wonderful. If they don't get accepted, it's just because someone has the taste of a dog ... (something my FIL said to my MIL shortly after they were married when he disapproved of the wine she ordered at dinner .... it's a wonder she stayed married to him! lol). nancy

  5. Oh, Alex,

    these are lovely. I, too, like the mix of realism with whimsy.

    Keep us posted on the progress.

  6. All great. Period. If they reject one, it won't be because of the quality of the work, it would be because they want to say it another way.

  9. Think I've missed a post Alex, sorry, concept sketches for ???

    As E*phi said these sketches are an interesting mix of realism and manga.

  10. Re: the little girl at the bottom. Is she supposed to look happy or sad. I saw the drawing and immediately thought the looked unhappy, but I can see that it might be possible for her to be seen as happy. Am just curious. You have a unique way with facial expressions. I noted the young man in the centre of your page header when I first saw that.

  21. Wonderful sketches, Alex! Have you decided if you'll use the manga or realistic style yet?

  22. Wish I could draw people like this, they are wonderful, you have a deceptively simple style, which I am sure is actually very difficult to achieve.

  23. Simply fantastic, Alex.
    With the little girl's face it looks like you tend to draw in a realistic style, don't you?
    Any way, I love them ^^
