STun_FANTASTICADVENTURES: I would say from the start I was committed to the idea of a story about the SUMBA people in Indonesia. I wanted to explore the shapes and designs, specifically of their jewelry which I interpreted throught the headdress of the woman on the left. Exploring the geometric styles of Sergio Toppi I found a composition I was comfortable with with the diamond shape and white circle. I wanted to create some interaction between the two figures(one close up with detail and the other in distance and full view). Color wise it was integral that I used red to give a suspenseful feel to the story. Blood spatter resonates with people naturally as danger.
STun_FantasticAventures_Sketch01: I wanted to explore shape once again with this but I wasn't sure if the main figure being central would be received well. I was actually very interested in this design but decided to be safe and consider a different composition. *The spears would signify the danger and the suspense and the central figure would be symbolic of power, mystery, innocence.
STun_WeirdTales_Sketch02: Again exploring the idea of a evil being hidden in a tree was the idea I was going for. Trees in many cultures are seen as a blessing and worshipped. I just wanted to play off the looming danger. I became progressively less interested as I continued to work on this.
