Heres a quick idea of a mouse warrior leading some kind of army. Im gona try for a more dramatic pose and comp but this is the basic idea.

Hehe, awesome! That's one muscular mouse.

It would be funny if they had some sort of catapult made out of a mouse trap :D.

Keep it up!

Hey there, good to see you entered already! Good luck!! :wavey:

Cheers, :)

Alright! its a kind of Were-Rat. Maybe you could tilt the view a bit to give more of a dramatic appeal and not such a straight on shot.

He's scary :)))

Hello and good luck :)))

Hey thanks guys! Im reworking the idea a bit but its still focusing around mice. The sketch will be up tonight and will involve mice flying on birds. Tell me which bird design you like the best. Im leaning towards the bottom left.

Ok well here is my reworked concept. I would like some input on the poses of the two characters and the type of structures in the midground.

Hello Richie Blitz,
Thanks for your comment first, after I really like the composition of your last sketch, but some detail could made a best render in my opinion. It's about the bird at first plan, I think it would look better more on left at first plan to watch better the way between mountain ( sorry for my legendarous vocabulary :D ) . I reallly like the face of the rat/mouse at first plan. Good start !

Ok I changed the position of the characters according to Deevad so that the center is more clearly seen. Now im going to begin the details.

Hey hey rblitz7 really nice concept here too...

This challenge will be really hard, there is too many good idea...

Can't wait to see more... :bounce:

hi there,nice concepts,however i think u'd benefit not centering ,the birds and the overall gap between the characters doesn't work for me,it adds a certain flatness,i think doin a few thumbnails will give a bigger span for your composition choice.

I decided to include more of the forground and add the view of the birds through some trees. I think I might need some more foreground so I can have room to include the bird and mouse.
