Thank You & Good-Bye

That's it guys....I have just uploaded the final .tif, so I guess my journey ends here. But my new journey begins shortly as I have a plane to catch. I will be away for more than a month, and in that time, I wish you all the best of luck in the contest and the final results. Also, thank you all very much for being here, it was a real blast!

As for the story of the final image, I think the pictures speaks for itself and we already know it. (Adaptation of Lord of the Rings) However, I would be real happy if anyone can come up with japanese names for these characters. I may continue to work on it when I come back too, adding the final embellishents that time didnt allow me.

Good luck and adios!!

Congrats Pat-Piper, you realised a great picture, I really like your 'simple' painting touch ( by saying 'simple' I use it to describe the simplicity of pure color areas you paint, but I know that to find the right color at the right place with a simple aspect as you did ask a best knowledge than to paint all smooth with gradient everywhere ). Your painting is a great one, and I hope you will have a price for this good job.

The Story

FInal Image!

Story: This image is adapted from J.R.R.Tolkien´s ''Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship''. The little green goblins which are replacements for the hobbits are known as kappa, and taken from Japanese mythology and folktales. Although the depiction does not exist in the story, I thought it suits the mood of a journey with focus on the characters, rather than rendering them against an epic background which would mean drawing them really small. With this, I also wanted to create a sense of suspense and introduce the personality of each character by their reactions when faced with a possible encounter with an unknown enemy.
