[CHALL][JUNE] Henri

Hello everyone,

This thread intend to be my WIP for the challenge of june. I think it will be easier for me to motivate myself if I have to update this little piece for you regulary

Also, I'm very curious and find very constructive to see very step of creating an art piece, so I would really like to see your WIPs too!

I'm going for 'Something Old', sketching out I had this idea of an hidden predator, and for some reason the idea of old pop to my mind the idea of a fish.

So this is my research around this theme.

Name:  sketches.jpg

- I like the n:1 big lips, and older fashion. I had this idea of the predator mimicing the face of a human, drawn on it's skin to attract it's preys.

- The n:2 is probably the shape I'm going for, mixed with this agressive mouth hidden in the throat (see montage circled in orange), But I don't like the mouth here.

- Finaly the one at top right as not been kept, the idea was to have a really bigger monster, it's eye would be hidden into the fake human face as the mouth.

Let me know what you like / dislike and your toughts

You know some of the best mimics in the sea are squids and octopi. Oh and did you see how some sea horses hide?

Hmm. Add some grey curls on #2 and it looks just like a lady that I see at the pool everyday.

I really like that!

Re: [CHALL][JUNE] Henri

Hello everyone! Thanks for all your comments!

So I did some more research and this is where I'm now, It's quiet different and I'm not sure I'll keep it as is, any thoughts ?

@snow_tabby No I didn't know theses was mimicing their preys. I'll check about sea horses

@talisman I don't think i'll be ready to enter the challenge, but I'll continue my entry here even if it's finished in few weeks :P

@vmrs Hahhahaha !

The new post has a more streamlined look to it, I really like the asymmetrical "face" area and the jagged edges on the plate-hair areas are really cool.
