Changed theme. Nibelungenlied was some kind of... strange and boring to me. So I'm now going with the tale of 'Hensel and Gretel' by the Grimm. I think it's very cool and I really like it. Donnow why...
So these are some first colors to get the mood in my head.

*agrees* The thumbs have a classical painting quality to it. Good job! Looking forward to how you'll develop this concept Simon! Guess you're listening to a lot of Wagner right now ? ;)
