Honestly, I feel that few artwork around here did hit the CONCEPT of JOURNEY they stablished on CG contest, some give us an idea of journey, but yours is clear on that concept, the lil creatures has no choice than having a journey ahead, a LIFE journey about to BEGIN.
It is good to see a pro ilustrator like you expressing such concept in this beautifull way.
Man hurry up, you will end up with a great artwork to delight us here at CGsociety.
