heres some early lighting tests, theres still ALOT of things missing . this is 3 1/2 hours of work so far. i'll continue tommorow.. The hands and small details will make a big difference, the lighting is still off but im figuring out how to make it work....

thanks folo

I like it! It's got a real creepy kinda' storybook feel to it.

You might want to make the path a bit more narrow in the distance though.

Good start, the only thing I'd suggest would be to not just cut and paste a single tree for the forest, but have different ones; define the character on tghe road a little more, as it's not clear at the moment if it's a male/female child/adult; and finally, alter your brushes a bit so as to avoid that photoshop airbrush look.

keep us posted!
No, seriously, what the hell is a puddlefish?

youre right i am going to change the trees i just put them in real quick to see how the composition would work. i have never used any other PS brush i will experiment and see, the character below is not even 1% completed, the whole thing is FAR FROM DONE. thanks

a little further along still needs work below on the ground, especially the grass, and then for last the poor victim, should it be a boy or girl? not sure yet... maybe a girl ...im going to add more trolls to the tree too make it look like a whole community. I also notice that the trees need to be darkend towards the back they are all the same color preety much thats no good, i'll fix that tonight.

Make it a boy with his dog.

Is it just me or do you feel a little neglected here on the 2D challenges. I feel like the red headed step child that no one talks to at family get toethers.

totally we are so not loved...lol, but thats ok because from what ive seen the best 3D artist are the ones that can pick up a pencil and let it rip...
