    Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
    King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
    Frankenstein

    I was thinking about Altlas Shrugged, that would be sweet, a challenge for sure and very different from other things going on here, huge railroad stations, that old factory with vines grown over it. Wyatt's Torch would be awesome to draw.


    But I'm currently halfway through the book so I don't think I could do it justice without knowing it fully.

    I'm thinking of some awesome ideas from medieval epics, I want to know if these are fine because all are awesome, I took a class and had to read them. I couldn't put them down. I wanted to know if any of these are fine to do, anyway here they are:

    Hartmann von Aue: Erec

    Hartmann von Aue: Iwein, the Knight with the Lion

    Wirnt von Grafenberg: Wigalois, the Knight of Fortune’s Wheel

    Wolfram von Eschenbach: Parzival

    I might do Wigalois or Parzival

    Eon...by greg bear

    I read the book when they did the cgtalk challenge way back and it immediately became one of my all time favorite novels. Although I never went through with creating any visuals...I figure better late than never.

    chaosrocks thanks for the reply....so this challenge is not the usual concept, design and paint an environment? I did this image today...is it not on the right track? as I was just going to go and paint it? Am i meant to be laying it out in a certain way? This is the only one that was set at this angle because of the location...the others will be straight-layed out environments...flower bed environment, rabbits house, tea party etc etc etc. I have seen some environment designs for the LOST RPG and using them as a guide...http://www.nuro-art.com/

    btw...there are so many posts on here about book choices...I wouldnt even dare to suggest Twilight as I think I may get a boot in my face as it not really epic...but THAT would be an awesome game

    Oh gods.. this is such a great idea for EOW100... My heart leapt at the idea of tackling the weird and wonderful world of Gormenghast, I absolutely adored the first two novels, Tidus Groan went off on too weird a tangent for me though.

    Though on thinking, I finished Count of Monte Cristo a couple of weeks ago, and would love to tackle some of the grandeur the environments in that book would have. Would that count as epic, Chaos?

    And an extra week would be just the incentive I'd need to tear myself away from the CGTalk Steampunk challenge for a little while and try this out instead.

    Greetings from Poland. Is "Eden" by Lem okay? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eden_(novel). Not-so-much epicness, but many interesting enviros are there.

    kilz eon is fine
    adele- you're o a good track, Alice is gonna be a hard one to keep away from existing images.
    zephyri I meant to put Gormenghast on the list, count of monte christo would be fine as well

    aer- I love Lem, and Eden is fairly epicish... don't thin the translator was quite as good for it as it was for "memoirs from a Bathtub"

    i am contemplating an extra week
