Hows it going folks? Now that we've gone through and highlighted all the powerhouses of other male stock artists out there to get the mental juices flowing, time to get a little audience participation going.
Though the shoot will not happen until it warms up a bit more out here and nature starts to get nice and green, probably the end of April or the beginning of May, we are planning a big co-op stock shoot with ^PirateLotus-Stock! It's going to be great fun.
But, with so much lead time on the shoot, that means we have more than enough time to plumb the depths of your desires when it comes to setting up the scenarios.
Here's the parameters we have to go off of. The shoot will be medieval themed. We have a couple recurve bows that we'll be using to hit on the hunters / hunting aspects. I don't anticipate being able to spend any of the shoot inside, so we're definitely going to explore making camp type stuff. We may have a medieval looking tent to play with, we may not. We have bits of armor and costume to play with as well. Check out ^PirateLotus-Stock's gallery to see what she'll be bringing to the table.
As you all know, we like to create a story with the stock series, to have scenarios and concepts to deliver. So what do you want to see? Are there general concepts you want us to explore? Specific poses you need shot? Let us know, because with all this time to prepare it gives us more than enough leeway to ensure we have the perfect compliment of costume, props, and gear even if it means perhaps working on new equipment if that's feasible.
I will keep this journal updated with ideas that have been requested, etc.
