Default The Graveyard - WIP

Hey guys,

I thought I would give this another shot since I didn't do so hot in the September competition. I need the practice plus painting and conceptualizing is something I love doing.

I've had a few ideas but I liked this one a lot. The subject matter isn't suppose to be anything sinister or evil, but an interesting way in which the grim reaper leads individuals to their resting place.

So far I've just sketched it out. I'm going to try and work on it in my free time and get this done before the end of the month. I'll try to keep you guys up to date with the work on it. Feel free to give input and comments.

Well its only been a short while since I posted but I've been playing around with lighting. The top one seems to have a pretty good mood for content but for some reason I like the second one as well. It has a sort of uplifting new beginning feeling to it which is sort of backwards to the subject of a graveyard and I like the play it has upon the theme and content.

Its definitely going to be in color, I just like starting out in values. It simplifies things for me.

Someone suggested that I try moonlight and, even though the lighting seems very challenging, I think I might try it. How else am I to improve but to push myself?

Thank you everyone for the comments. As you can probably tell, I'm going with the moonlight. I had some time today to work on it a little bit so here's an update. I was mostly experimenting on brush strokes and texture. I didn't get much done but its something.
