thank you , yours is really nice too, good luck

Aaaaaaaaah, fantastic idea, really original and one I'm sure alot of people will relate too!

I'm note sure you nned to emphasis them being from another world, I think just the normal situation of it being the last walk of your single life before you start a life together is enough. Maybe there could be thoughts going off into the distance of things that will happen to them, house, kids, death that sort of thing?

here it is my two other concept, , so now i`ve three of them, really different but i like them all,
-the second one tell the story of a post man who begin a long trip to a huge city for bring his bad and good new to all theresedent of this one
-the third one tell the story of a gruop of little bug who use to live in a corn, they spend a lot of time to chose the good one cause they`ll be there house for long time,paradox is that there house provide them there food also and after a while this one is not protect them enought again the predator and the cold, so one of them have to go on a journey full of danger for find a new house for the goup

i stop to think about other idea, concentrate on these and chosse the one i`ll do for the contest...if you prefer one between the weeding, the postman and the bugs just tell me it `ll help me to make my choice , thanks

I like the one with the bugs.
Good luck with the one you choose.

03 March 2006, 07:59 AM
thank you , will probably chose the bug one, will give me the oportuity to play with a realistic bacgroud and half realistic/cartoonish character, will also make a fat bug who`s eating the corn for indicate that they actually eat there house because i`m affaraid that i`ll be not clear enought, choice is notdefinitif so if you prefer one ofthe other concept let me know, i plan to begin seriously the mod afetr this week end.
