More Pitch Art by johnsonverse More Pitch Art by johnsonverse
This is another piece I did for an animation pitch. The foreground coloring was done with the input of several friends and the background was basically swiped from a Frazzetta painting.

LOVE that monster. No offense to your savage barbarian guy there but I think I'm rooting for the monster. He's just too cool.

Seriously I am a mega huge Frazetta fan so this drawing hits that sweet spot for me. Haha.

NICE! I wanna see this show/feature, someone needs to do some good fantasy stuff!

Great how you have them lit, so your eye gets the point right away and then is led down to see the craziness of the beast. Good thinking, man!

Did you make this like a typical animation cel? It does have that feel to it.

I tried to make it look as much like animation as could.

I love his crazed look, quite different from a Conan-esque stony, determined look. At least thats my opinion....

I can easily see the voice-over/monster sound effect...

"Aaahhh!"
"AAAHHH!!"

Which one's louder...? ;)

Looks like the guy was camping out on the ledge, LotR movie-style, when the thing surprised him...could've been mutual:

"Ooh! Delivery!"
"No, foul monster! The name's DiGiorno!!"

The only suggestion I could make would be to put a bit of reflection highlight on the sword. This is a top notch piece of work.

I think you are right. I could totally push all the the highlights and contrasts. It's just so hard to let go of the black and white drawing.

dope energy and good thinking with that Frazzetta background. Blue looks like it could have been feathered a little bit more, it almost looks as if it goes from blur to focus without that much of a gradient.
man, that dude looks like he's screwed no matter what happens! great work:thumbsup:
