    I think it's more fun to pick something you are not familiar with as a topic, getting out of comfort zone is very healthy .
    Just like a real job man, you get a deadline you gotta go by.

    but since it sounds like there aren't many readers in here...
    I'm a reader, I just finished a couple of those Dr. Seuss books. So full of suspense!

    I read, just not to many series. I like one shot books like 1984 and I read comics. Haha.

    hey Chaos the last books I read were from The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I think I got to book 3 or 4. Fantasy based, much like Lord of the Rings, it's been a while since I read, but even within the first few books there are some great scenes that I can remember, which would make for great paintings.

    Let me know if I can do it, my plate is already full for the next few months but I really want to get some good pieces in for this one.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Ray

    Hey, i know you dont want LOTR New Zealand all over again, but what about the other books, especially the Silmarillion? there's tons of locations there to do, also howabout mythology? such as Ragnarok or some of the other Norse Myths?

    yes on the black company
    yes on maupassant
    no movies. cliff notes at the very worst resort. i didn't think you'd actuall hav eto tread the book first. the book on tape idea is a good one.

    three weeks becasue around here, that about the amount of attention span people have.

    yes on Hyperion

    yes on mountains of madness

    wow never heard of that one Arttourney. but yes it sounds cool

    ok you can have Wheel of time. the books kinda sucked and were pretty crappily written.. but the had a great publicity machine and were in essence epic

    in case you haven't noticed... yes I read persistantly and omniverously.

    Norse Mythology ok I guess although I would prefer the hero saga Ie die nebulungen lied
    Aren't they up there? the whole of the mytholgy is epic, but not particularly narrative

    I would accept the Hobbit, or the Sillmarillion. or even LOTR itself but youd have to talk me into it

    I heard the Wheel of Time books got boring at about 5 or 6, and I would definitely say the first one started out too much like LOTR's, but from what I read it wasn't bad. Better than a lot of junk out there. In any case, I think it will make for some good paintings, and really that's all that matters so a big THANKS for the approval.

    No idea if I'll actually have time for this, but that's the point isn't it, making some? Anways...
    Stephen Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant?
    (not sure which one I'd choose, but there's plenty to choose from there...)
    it occurs to me that both my emotions and reactions are ill-placed.

    So you can do Stargate, following the book and making it different from the visual series. Right?
