    the artist in me fell in immediate love with your third sketch. However, for a general audience, I think the tree sketch is a better representation of birth, since the baby and the "Mother Nature" are huge symbols. All the same, I still think number three is my favorite.

    The latest drawing of the tree is really great - its very well rendered and cool creature design too. As far as the idea goes (newborn) I am not so convinced by the baby as it not clear to me what the relationship is and therefore the intent of the tree figure - but until is put into context it is hard to make conclusions what the scenario is. Anyway I love this sketch the best so far (I like trees in fantasy art so I could be biased here) and has the most appeal for me. Great work!

    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.
