Great concept! I love it! Only thing I would change is to put in some sort of hint of the mysterious destination...

I really like the design of the ship with the 'this way up' sign. Great touch! :thumbsup:

Good luck!

I love when the drawings mix reality and imagination!

sh@ke - Thanks for the input. I was thinking the same thing. They look a little hypnotized and stiff.

paperclip - Thanks for the kind words. The final will have more of the destination to the right side of the boat. Thanks for the critique.

ThalitaDol - Thank you very much!

Aww this is very cute! I would love to see more of the environment too :)

Hi there,

Maybe you could make the view more panavision - like? Meaning wider ratio to show a bit more of the world that is in front of those lil' fellaz.

Cool concept! Love the cardboard box taped on with the "UP".

I've got a feeling this is gonna be full of thought and detail like that. Good luck, I'll keep an eye on this one.

Annemee - The environment will be comming. Thank you for the kind words.

Chupacabra - It will have a wider aspect when I am done. I only have this section started so far in my concept. Thanks for the critique, they help alot.

Burpy - Thanks! Hope to keep you wanting to comming back to see the progress.

Did some refinement on my characters, water splashing and started creating more of the environment. Lots of great posts for this contest are helping keep me inspired.

Started to finally add color. In the very rough stages.

I croped my piece to just the area I am currently working on, so you guy's can have a better look. Hope you like the progress.

Nigio - Thanks for the complement. I posted some colors now. Hope you like.

3d2w.john - Thanks, I can't wait either.

Hi.:) Colouring looks nice! The background is cool, reminds me of Monkey Island, with the skull and light and everything. It could look cool if you REALLY emphasize the darkness and stormyness over there in the distance to get a nice contrast in the composition.

Keep it up!:thumbsup:

Thanks for the critique burpy. I was actually thinking about doing that. My idea is to have the left side of the piece where the kids are to have bright an vibrant colors, while the other side has darker and more muted colors and will be stomy.
