A Brush Sauce Theatre Submission.
I decided to join the monthly BTS competition run by Tyler Edlin.
The Challenge was as follows:
Giant must be:
• Giant • Humanoid
• In an Action Pose
• Set in the late afternoon/early evening/twilight hour

The ‘reward’ for the competition is basically to have Tyler Edlin review and feedback on your work – so we’ll see what he says and maybe make some more changes.
My Submission, I wanted to experiment with dynamic symmetry for a better composition. I probably over did it a bit but I’m happy with the overall outcome. This was mostly done on an Ipad Pro with a few touches done on PC. Yes there are some unfinished areas and the girl could have more interesting elements to her design but hopefully I’ll get some interesting feedback and then I might come back and do a little more work on the piece.
The idea here is that these little evil smurf people have tricked the evil giant woman using the sweet smell of bacon and steak.
You can tell she’s evil because of here Goth makeup. I was considering going just metal bikini, as a homage to Frank Frazetta and generally there is a troupe of more revealing outfit = more evil (I’m looking at you Princess Aurora from Flash Gordon.) But in this day and age I’m not sure people would get it.
Moodboard, sketch and final submission.
So the video went up the feedback was:
Really nice visual story telling
Bit of a tangent with the runners head a rope.
The main changes suggested was around the colour – I have been wondering if my monitor is setup right (have been trying some variations so that might have played a part). In short adding more grey / realistic colours in for areas of visual rest.
