I love anthropomorphic trees, but my favorite is the egg guy, it's sends a shudder down my spine (in a good way) and is a real memorable idea.

Good idea Rissa G - something less like an alien baby - maybe a flower, or a fruit or a seed pod or something - thanks for the suggestions, I'll play around with it in my next sketch. Thanks!
Thanks for the feedback Sheff - I think the egg baby idea has potential, but is still very shallow at the moment - I appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks Treefrog - I like the idea of no.3 too, but I think I may let this one go for now and concentrate on the other two as I can't think of a decent way to make it work visually.
Thanks Graphicgolem - It's good to know that the relationship isn't very clear, that's something I'll have to revise. I also love fantasy art trees, though perhaps it is a bit too cliché? I'll see where I can push it.
Thanks for your thoughts pearlyking - I'm not sure whether to push to horror aspect or go with more of a 'strange and wondrous' feeling.
I haven't had much time to work on it, but here are some more sketches of the egg baby - I need to look at real babies! Even for a deformed baby it looks weird - time for reference.

some really nice ideas here! I especially like the self portrait and the egg child. Nicely painted images too

The treewoman is beautiful!! I love how you created several legs as the roots of the tree. Its very subtle and beautifully rendered. And the egg child is so quirky! Its gonna be a hard one to chose from, i guess it will depend on what feeling/mood you want to show...i cant help but lean towards the tree woman

Thanks d00dlebug and JLPastecchi - I'm going to try to work up all of them if I get time.
Here are some more ideas for the eggbaby - the first is the baby exploding out of the egg and surpirising the person who had intended to eat it. The second is a composition test of just the simple baby in an egg. I thought the original flat composition was a bit boring.

I don't think I'm going to get anything finished in time - though I'll finish them regardless (for experience and pleasure).
More egg baby wip - the only one I've actually had a chance to work on. I made a 3d egg + cup as I didn't want to fubar the ellipse in perspective and painted over the top.

Thanks Black Spot - hope the final doesn't destory what you thought was working in the sketch.
Thanks mohdmubasshir - I'll finish that other one a bit later, I think I went with the egg baby because it was less detailed and I had a better chance of getting it done in time.
Well, I've finished eggbaby... Would have likes to work on it a lot more (maybe redo the face), and had time to complete the other two, but I'm glad I got something in. I really enjoyed this competition - highly motivating.
Even though the competition is over, I would still really appreciate any crits and comments.

I really love the idea with this. This is an amazing painting and I love the soft blending with the egg and stand. I keep looking at it trying to figure out how you did it..it is lovely. It is a cute and sweet painting but yet scares me because the egg looks so real that I can taste it but then seeing the baby in it...my tummy turns ROFL That is perfect! There are a few that are really personly Fav's of mine and when I first seen this in the main posts I fell in love Good luck and thank you for a wonderful painting.

WOW! Great texture on the egg. Very well done. And I also like the tree nymph idea with the gardener. Great job all around!
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Thanks for all the positive comments people! Very encouraging and motivational.
Even though the contest is well and truly over, I'm still working away slowly on the other concepts. Here's some more work in progress on the tree mother:
I'd love to hear any feedback anybody has - I promise to attempt any suggestions I get!
