My entry for ^PurpelBlur
's Imagination expand contest [link]
Deadline's today, so I'm cutting it rather fine as usual
I really liked this style of contest - you have to include a particular line in your entry, mine is here [link]
so it follows the tree, hill, stone, and into the forest, where the line is shown by a darker patch in the trees and the trail of smoke.
Originally I had designed a cave with a series of beacons on the far hills, but couldn't work out how the shape of the line could be fit to a beacon. Then ~Buhamet
suggested they could be standing stones, so I changed that idea slightly.
Then, I started drawing the guy in the corner who at some point became a sort of dwarf called Derek.
A little while later and I was checking through the other entries to show my dad what other people were doing with this line, and I came across one that was almost exactly the same as my plan with the cave. Then dad suggested my half sketched cave could be a tree, which actually works a lot better with the other elements in the drawing then the cave did in the first place
Thanks to ~Suzabell
for makeing a fire at the park the other day and letting me get some nice fire reference shots
Might try adding colour to this later, just to see how well it works.
