not quite sure what Ill be doing.  Im thinking naughty snowman or mummy, but its hard to fit it into such small space.  Heres some quick ideas I did


my origanal idea for the mummy was that he was like an old man in a nursing home and there would be a nurse bending over he was looking at.  that didnt really fit with the given dimensions so it just turned into a sexual thing (keeping with the girl bending over thing, seemed like the best way to fill the space) and decided to make them both mummies, probibly will change background to inside a pyramid or something.
for the snowman, I kind of took my origanal mummy idea.  The idea is supposed to be the girl is bending over to pick up a snowball and the snowman is supposed to be looking at her.
Ill probibly try some other stuff out too though.

Nah I disagree with the drool...Right now it's ambiguous as to what he's doing with his hand, which makes him seem all that more crazed. He could be nervously biting his nails or he could be about to SMACK YOU IN THE FACE!! who knows.

cool panda.
heres my idea for spooky geek

I guess hes kind of crazed too.

edit: different version with no mouth



edit 2:  quick question.  when I read "but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART." I interpreted it as we can only submit 1 peice.  But are we allowed multiple submissions?

Only submit your final art means don't submit a piece until you've finished it (ie not lineart).
We're normally allowed more than one submission so go ahead and make another one (or three)
 
I personally prefer your mouthless one, as it's anatomically valid-er :P
 
Speaking of which, here's a WIPpy SuperMummy

cool that changes eveything.  Now I dont have to make a ton of wips and choose between them all.
Ya, I think I like the mouthless one better too, mainly because the blood stained crazy teeth kind of put it more in the crazed catagory than the spooky catagory.

I would raise your mummy higher above the ground though.  It kind of looks like the ground is a ledge and hes hanging from it, with the camera looking down on him to me.

Perhaps If he was to be poking his tongue out straight down more? As it is it looks more like he's licking his lips.
