* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!

Good luck

Or 'Merlin and Morgen' if you like. Always wanted an excuse to do some Arthuria- not sure where I'm going with this one entirely, but I'm enjoying it. 30 mins so far. More later in the day.

Woh, I love brianl's and audit's entry. Also love the entry of someone else whose nick I immediately forgot, ahaha.

Off to do some sketching now, it's 3:30 AM so I don't have anything useful to do anyway.

Really, really fine work everyone, this is turning out to be a personal favourite.

I finally sat down with a pencil and paper to lay out a sketch, seems like ages since I did. This is 2 1/2 hrs, Painter & Photoshop switched off. No beard, it didn't seem to fit with the wild hair :)

hehe PinoyMcGee - Gandalf rode Shadowfax, Merlin didn't have a horse of any sort --- but that's a funny pic anyway :D

I'm loving the entries this time - they are a cut above. Merlin is another personal fave, but I'm backed up trying to finish the Guin/Lance one. Meh. Maybe later on.

Anyway, Lucavi, yet again, a nice one and loving the update Caveat!

Kahlal Amnell : Thanks!

Darksuit : Nice approach with the 'storyboard' , I actually like that last picture, it's got nice linework and that color-combination works really well.

CaveatScoti : Good one, I love the composition.

Lucavi : Very cool style you got, really goes well with this weeks Arthur theme!
