Just a first idea, i'm guessing everyone will get the idea straight away, got a lot of work to develope character into it :)

Interesting idea Dave. This ones gonna be all about the rendering. Are those mini babies in the sperm? Good luck with it

ooh i didnt notice the mini babies.
nice to see someone i know entering this challenge.
Good luck mate

yeah they are supposed to be babies, i'm going to try have them as the characters in the scene, and try show the emotion through them, bit of a challenge me thinks but could be quite effective with the right lighting. I can position the babies in multiple positions, foetal, one reaching out looking ahead, one kicking etc, and maybe something similiar in the egg.

nice one dave! As mark said its good to see someone we know entering... i'm thinking of entering my self, as my self-elected project ties in with the theme quite nicely.

Like the idea... like the fact that it not epic, until you think of it relativley and then it becomes a huge journey. And it is the 'begining'.

I think the tails need to be longer and thiner (more wip like)... Like This (

Good luck on this... look forward to seeing how it turns out! I didn't notice the little babys either... nice little touch!

Tails def need to be longer and thinner.

Hi Dave! I just found out we are both working on the sperm journey, but with two differente aproaches and in different categories. I wish you luck on the challenge man!

well if it was a man it would be quite a short journey, but could make it comical and have the sperm saying "so what the f**k are we supposed to do now? where the hell's this egg?" or something lol

My concept sketch doesn't really show the egg to well. I'm doing a 3d test this weekend, gonna try play around with the camera angles some more,
