    You're right Leighton - I haven't put the kindling in yet, and it does leave a big doubt about where exactly the flame is coming from. That is one of the many things that needs sorting. it's on the list - as is trying to make it understood that our cavey has used to two flints to strike the first spark - so they need work too.

    You can do it Dissar. I've been in your thread and seen how well you're getting on already. Looking forward to seeing that progress.

    Here's a few more bodies marked in. More to come. I'm wondering about having a kiddie right up close, peering over the rock at the flame, with just the top half of his head showing - eyes wide?

    Nice progress Nick. I'm not that sure if adding the boy will sort of disturb the flow of the composition but no harm trying it since the beauty of working digitally is we are able to test out new idea without destroying our work.

    Neat idea! Great progress so far, I think this piece is very strong indeed!

    I think the fire needs some love for sure, right now it just seems like a glowy tendril or something. Definitely try to nail the fire, that will be key to this image IMO.

    Thanks Diissar, Happy to visit your thread and see the exciting progress. Keep it going.

    Thanks Hueyyeng. My feeling is that there are breaks in the flow now and I'm still fumbling with the composition. Just have to try things and see. Really appreciate the input.

    Thanks Miycko.

    You're not wrong Mutonhead. Thanks so much for dropping by and taking the time to supply valuable feedback.

    After having to concentrate on other stuff for a bit, here's a tiny bit more on it. I reckon the new figures will add to the sense of excitement, when they're more complete. Started to give the fire a little more of that recommended 'oomph' as well - and a bit more movement to draw the eye and help the composition.

    great work so far
    the only thing i would have added is a bit of purple and a bit of blue to the begining of the flame it something i learnt from painting a lit candle and looking at fire, fire does not only have reds and yellows in it it also have purple and blue and other colors just not that noticable like the reds and yellows

    That's looking great, with the detail on the characters and the rock textures. My only gripe is the flame (I bet you're tired of looking at the flame!) It appears a bit top-heavy. Also, where's it coming from, or are you going to paint some twigs and stuff later?

    No, wait, something else... the main guy, on the left - I can't quite work out where his lower body goes. The flame's on a pedestal, I can see that, but the rock in the bottom left corner looks a bit like the floor and makes that area confused. Maybe it would look better just black?

    Really nice, work, though, those characters are excellent.

    WOW! What a fantastic entry for this challenge. I've been trying to keep up with the many, many images I'd happily short-list as contenders, but there are just too many that merit it. Wonderful effort, chaps (and chapesses of course - that's understood I hope).

    I did my usual thing and let other stuff interfere too much with my progress so have abandoned the caveman one as an entry. It will get finished in my own time and it will get used for something else instead.
    I reverted to the first idea I had at the last minute, cobbling it to an almost finish instead, and submitted that. Great fun taking part, which is the main reason anyone should be doing this, isn't it? That and to try to improve and learn as you go. Got both of those things out of this. Thanks to everyone in here for that.

    Scott - Thanks.
    Josif - Thanks to you too.
    Oren90 - You are quite right and it was always on the agenda to 'nurture the look of the flame some more. Thanks for the input.
    Si - As always, you spot all the things on the huge list of things that need fixing. Great to have your keen eyes on the job. Really apprecaited, thanks.
    Mohdmubasshir - thanks for dropping by and commenting.
