BURGLARS / SNAKE NANNY / BLIND MAN

IDEAS & REFERENCES :

Hi everyone, this is my project workspace where I'll share my ideas, workflow and sketches.

#1-SNAKE NANNY

For this first idea, I was changing the diper of my 6 months old kid and he was kicking me very hard. So I've been thinking of a snake nanny (with no arms, just her body and her mouth to change the diper), changing the diper of a baby octopus (with many strong legs). I'm thinking of a very funny struggle.

Rough Pass

For this rough pass, I've tried to make the scene more clear.

But I wasn't satisfied and Leo gave me some very good advices. So I've made a very rough mass composition in order to clear the scene.

And I've drawn a new rough, trying to add more tension and strengh in order to feel the struggle.

#2-FLY HUNTER

For this second idea, I've been thinking of an super strong man who's hunting a fly in his living room with a slipper. In the middle of the scene, his bored wife is sitting on the couch. On the walls there's a lot of footprints.

#3-CLUMSY FATHER

For this third idea, I've been thinking of a personnal experience. A clumsy father drives back his car on the toy of his child. The Kid his crying, trying to get the toy back under the wheels.

Finally, stucking the kid's jacket in the door is more fun.

#4-BURGLARS

For this fourth idea, Two burglars are in front of a "beware of the dog" sign. The first one laugh at an angry chihuaha while the other tries to prevent his buddy that a mastiff is behind them.

Perhaps a fence in the background will help to understand that they are intruders.

For this rough pass of my idea number 4, I've followed Leo's advices and pushed everything (ideas & posings) in order to be funnier.

#5-BLIND

A blind man walks down the street, his cane pointing forward. Just in front of him, a jackhammer worker turns his back, bending forward. You can see the cane head towards the line of her buttcrack.

#6-GAMER DAD

This is also a personnal experience :) 
A father playing video games with his 2 children. He painfully trying to play with a baby in his arms (Baby with a joypad in the mouth). And beside him on the sofa, there is his 3 year old son playing with a unplugged controller (while the dad one is connected to the console).

I'm thinking to finalize those ideas with a line-work approach with these artists as influences.
