Some simple value sketches.
The top I was experimenting with trying to do a bit of an aerial composition, and added the foreground element with the character standing on top to make it more interesting, although given more time I thought I could have made a more stronger composition.
The middle was a study from an existing film frame.
On the bottom I was working a little bit with overcast light and using local value to define the major compositional shapes, as oppose to having a strong directional light or artificial light to define form. I was also experimenting a bit with trying to elicit a more calmer or serene composition. I'm not exactly sure how successful that was, but it was adequate for a exploratory study.

Here are some more speed paints. Working in black and white and sticking helps a lot with thinking in simple term of strong values and is fun to experiment with on a simpler stage. I am thinking about aiming for doing at least one a week to post on the blog.
