Negatory. Obviously you read a lot, but the last novel I read was in highschool. In short, I don't read very fast. Add to that full-time work and 3 weeks becomes more like 6 days. It would probably take me 3 days to read a novel in the first place. That leaves 3 days for 5 pieces + design.
Perhaps we can we opt to do a movie as a last resort? Movies are narratives...
Also, who's judging this? A well-read soul, I assume.

Reason: +judging q
Typical audio books (and don't hassle me about what typical means) will run anywhere from 6 to 14 hours, depending on the book and if it's abridged or unabridged.
Since it's a lot harder to fast forward to an exact time than it is to turn a page, I'd suggest either Cliff's Notes or Wikipedia for the basic story plot, and check the actual book out from the library if you want to get into the details. Bear in mind that you will straight-up ruin any chance of enjoying the story if you haven't read it already and Wiki it, but since it sounds like there aren't many readers in here, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
I'm going with "At the Mountains of Madness". Epic Antarctica.

New World Creation: Designers Wanted – Environment of the Week
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.
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?
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.
