hey guys! I haven't had time to paint for the last several rounds, but this one sounds too good to pass up! I will try and get a head start.

Island Paradise ? wow that reminds me of a short story I read in a book of collected stories called Unexpected Magic. The jist of the short story is that these kids go camping with their aunt or someone like that, and they go to a place near a beach with 'Danger: No Trespassing' signs posted all over the place, because everywhere else is too crowded, and their aunt is very strongwilled. So they set up camp and while their aunt is in the tent, just after setting it up. The place or they start teleporting and stuff, but there aunt is clueless, and they end up on all different sorts of islands, eventually they recognise that they're on the Circle road island of grass just down there street and ditch the clueless aunt. Well anyways, they get home and their mother is all like "wow, You're back so soon, not suprised"(lolz), and then they start getting calls from all over the world;Swedan, Ireland, Some U.S. Military Base on an island, from people that found their items , lolz. eventually they get a call from their aunt who's having a nice time in Hawaii.
So my Question is, can it be a magic Island ? I also told that story to hopefully help people free their mind when brainstorming ideas ^_^
Have fun,and maybe I'll throw some thumbnails in this week. It's been a while since I've had alot of free time for doodling.

dunno naked dudes are extinct and unicorns are pretty primative.... scratch that. reverse it.... and either way I don't think either one would be described as civilised.. does the naked dude leave the toilet seat up? there you go...
Im afraid my island paradise comes complete with tanned naked cabana boys, coconut oil and icy drinks with pink umbrellas

I want to go too far with this. Too far. Man, I haven't been here in a while.

Timothee> I'm a huge fan of rocky island spires, and I will probably make them part of my piece, but I think your second comp with the ship sailing is better visually. The foreground elements combined with the silhouettes of the far palms makes for a more interesting composition overall. This being said, I think you could merge these elements into the other piece and have it be successful, as well. Either way, looking good so far. =)

Paradise Island comps
Hey folks. This is what I have so far. I'm excited to see lots of cool islands on here soon! I plan to continue working on this, I'm sort of stuck at the moment however. Thoughts and ideas are more than welcome. Thanks~

just some wip action... no doubt will come up with something totally different...
February 21st, 2009 #14
Hmm, think I'll squeeze this one in. Nice wips so far folks!
DaveB: Loving the middle tower in that second wip. Nice colours too.
Well, I've done some wips. It is a lot for me since I usually plan in my head and go straight to the final idea before drawing anything. I think I will go on the largest one with the secluded mountain pool and waterfalls with breathtaking view of island.

Okcyde- Thanks for the input, I'm going with the second one, as it feels less cluttered compositionally. I'll post some WIP soon. Nice to see some variety showing up in this thread.You can work now and play later, or play now and work later.
