I mapped out a rough guide for myself as to where things were according to the text, I made sure I did this without looking at the photograph of the house as the project is to paint from the text descriptions.
This will help when I choose an angle to paint from so whatever else might be in the frame is noted.

The aim of this project is to create 3 Concept Paintings from a given section of text.
The text I plucked out of Phil's Mystical Blue Box is:

Here are some sketches toward a final idea, I kept getting stuck for inspiration so Leo and J.J. helped critique at each step :)
So as my notes in the image say, with this image I need to stretch it out, make it more elegant, a powerful reach, and this is just so I know what my metamorphosis will look like, then I can draw it from the desired camera angle which i'm thinking positioned at the end of the above hand looking down toward the character. To make this noticeable that it's me, the facial features would e recognisable as my own. A suggestion that Leo said was to see the view down the arm toward the face, this made me think like a slide, so the viewer starts at my hand and the vision slides toward my face then explores the rest of the image.
My favourite so far is the small thumbnail in Figure 6 with the smiley face pointing towards it.

With one week left i've decided to drop my experimentation on this painting and move toward developing a final pose, environment and character now. Here's where I got to anyway.
I was trying to figure out how to paint an Earwig type hard, shiny skin on top of the raw anatomy of humans. Where the muscles overlapped I tried to make them look like 3D layers on top of each other with hard edges and light catching in places.
