I've been around a lot of challenges, never took part, sometimes regretted it later. This time I love the topic, can't pass it up! Good luck to everyone

Concept / pre-visualization: Icarus



I'm sure there will be lots of incarnations of Icarus in this challenge but it's a good concept to start off with. I honestly don't know if I'll use this character/myth for my final but it's a good start.

Ha! I'm doing Icarus as well, though I suspect my take on it may differ from yours just a little bit...

Concept / pre-visualization: Baba Yaga



Baba Yaga is an old Slavic legend. Also lending herself perfectly for this challenge as the old witch is motorized!

Anyways, it was a quick sketch. Not sure how I feel about the image or character. It does seem like I want to do something which flies though.

Very cool. Looks like a classic witch with a steam punk twist.

Nice work so far!

Baba Yaga rides in a giant mortar and steers with an equally giant pestle. She also drags a broom from behind to cover her tracks. Maybe you can incorporate these items into the ships' design.

Hehe cool, why not make a vehicle which is only engine :O! Would be cool if her/his hair/cloth was laying more back and flapping in the wind so the speed would be shown, right now it look quite slow. Awesome challenge right!? Keep it up!

Luv the baba Yaga concept. Doesn't she also have a chicken hut on legs that roams the dark forest?

Good luck with this.

btw, off the topic, where do you know this from ?

Междудругото, Ник, познаваме ли се ?

Късмет в челинджа...
Лично аз, сигурно смених вече 20 абсолютно различни идеи...
Не мога да се спра на крайно решение...

excuse me for the foreign language...

I honestly can't remember but the thought of a steampunk hunt on chicken legs hunting children through a forest sounds pretty creepy to my mind
