there are few who can really benefit from large canvas.
like Mrmo Tarius.


BTW. here's the first thing that came to my head.

bu maybe I'll go for something completely different

UPDATE

now i don't like it. This looks more like a rope in rather than entangled tentacles.

UPD2
played with colors, redone the tentacles.


UPD3

Looks too messy.
I don't like how the stratosphere is done, but don't know how to make it any better.

Also the intended point of attraction (the flower) doesn't attract the eye.

Just because it's unrestricted, doesn't mean you need to make something enormous.

Well... yes :P
The "non-humanoid" thing also reminded me of good old Cthulhu :)



*edit* updated the squiddy guy, I need to work on the squishy guy next :)

I actually thought about doing something with chemistry / physics, with covalent-bonds representing the "long-distance relationship" in some manner or an other.

I thought it could be funny to have an H2O group with its 2 hydrogen particles fuss about in a love-triangle regarding whom gets the honors of bonding with the oxygen's electron first, but since this isn't about love-triangles I had to scrap it. =P

P.S: It's amusing to see how everyone went for the highest echelon in the interpretation of "long-distance" as "celestially-long"

sketch WIP


not too sure if I should swap out the arrows for animation. I plan to make them less awful-looking in the final, but maybe some motion would work better...

There go my chances at coming in first and/or second :D. mrmo and max are probably going to take them. Should be fun though.

that root-system looks pretty humanoid imo, but I'm not sure how far the mods will bend the humanoid rule.

Humanoid= looks like a human
So the question you must ask yourself is:
Are farm animals and motor vehicles human?

@Technos I don't think that makes any sense, and the max colours you can use are 14.

Humanoid - anything with the basic structure of a human. Think head, legs, arms, and torso (in a similar configuration to a human).

Hi,
here is my idea for this challenge:




The two little owls have a 'distant' relationship, as their parents don't let them play together. I agree this is rather a short distance...

Unfortunately, I won't probably have the time to work on it before the challenge's deadline.

The removal of the ring around the sun should help.
