I won't be able to do that, but i think a mummy walking on his own bandages and falling would fit well the comedy style...

My WIP so far,

It's supposed to be Vampire/War but I don't know if the war genre needs to be stressed more in this, and if so I'm not quite sure how.

I like the war one.  Mines comin' along alright, but I'm afraid the backround will be a bit tricky. Wish me luck. EDIT: He's in love with a plant. very romantic. hoping to make the heart beat.

@ Mrmo
I think if you swapped the far right native with the far left native it would feel a little more balanced. Currently there is a little too much green on the right-ish side.
Also not a huge fan on the mouth on the leftmost Native mummy. It might look better without it perhaps?
And the shoes and hats (specifically the cow-boys) might need some work (but it is a wip, it just looks a little funky right now.)
(Am I brave enough to critique our lord and master? )

@Lana
That is looking lovely.

Unbelievable! I just check the challenge forum and it seems as though Bokeblender and I have the same idea,



It's a swamp creature in love with a mushroom!

I might change it now or perhaps we could see each others own interpretations of it. I suppose that saying might be true, great minds think alike!

@crozier, if I didn't want critique and feedback I wouldn't post the WIPs here, right? :D (plus I'd have totally submitted the version with the typo error cause I no speak english very well)

anyways, your comments are all valid points. I don't know about changing the hats and shoes though (I intentionally made them flat and as simple as possible), but the color balance on the whole could use some, well, balancing :)

@philippejugnet:
-prominent fangs (CHECK)
-blood (CHECK)

YOU DID WELL

I'm in! Making werewolf and war stuff.
I don't know if I'll finish and submit this piece but whatever. Here is a wip (very rough sketch of the idea), werewolf-girl that walks and cries cuz war is sad and it's no fun

at least the challenge will keep me busy this week and I won't have sad thoughts lol

@Mrmo Tarius - I love your piece so much!! It reminds me of a game Duck Hunt. I'd totally shoot all those mum-cowboys hah)) keep making it!
