Hi, everyone!
Wow, the coolest thing about being a "regular" is now my thread fills up with comments before I've even posted a single word of picture!

Well, I've been thinking about the theme for weeks now ever singe Leigh's first clue. I have some ideas, but I hadn't factorred in the extra rules (or suggestions) about doing small creatures, so now I'm rethinking. Hope to have something to show soon, but I need to sit with it a while longer... Best of luck to all of you too!

I wonder just how strictly the 'small creature' rule is going to be enforced? My picture doesn't have small creatures (although there will be small elements in it)...will this be bad?

I swear I thought you said, "small elephants," paperclip and I was going to say that it perfectly suits the contest. I think the small-creature-large-epic-background is just a guide to get you to think about an epic journey. IMHO, the birth of a child is an epic journey. I don't think you or walrus will have any problems with what ever you come up with.

Concept Sketch: Farewell Kiss - rough layout



Well, here's my first concept, possibly not my last. It's not as funny as my usual pieces - in fact, it's not funny at all, just kind of sweet... or at least I'd like to think so.

Anyhow, in the far-away land of To-Be-Determinedia, a girl gives a firend a kiss as he goes off to explore the wide wide world. Those ar big runger structures on the top of the buttes on the right, surrounding gigantic trees whose roots wind down to the plain below. The road the boy is about to travel on winds down to the small village in the center and meets up with a wide river that stretches off towards the mountains (because a road would be invisible there so you need the river to stand in for the path travelled.)

Character details to follow... See the next post.

Concept Sketch: Farewell Kiss - character studies



...And here are some character studies for the above layout. I don't have any clothes, or even real character designs settled upon yet. (No, they're not going to be nekkid!) I was thinking something a bit on the fantastic side.... think Shadow of the Colossus or Princess Mononoke or something vaguely like that. I'd like his mount to be something similar to the one in Mononoke too, kind of like how Ashitaka's mount was a creature you understood was rideable but not a conventional horse.

Anyhow, that's all I got right now.
