Revenbo I love it so far! I don't know how you guys crank out these fantastic ideas so quickly. I don't think it feels that 'Cartoony'. I like that you can see the decent parts of city, but also the seedy under-bridge.
I'm tempted to go Ali-Babba and the 40 thieves on this one, since EVERYone is gonna do the 'City rogues guild house'
I'll see if I can't dig up a translation of the original story! I remember reading it when I was a wee tiny thing. . . Or rather, an even tinier thing then I currently am. . .
OK BUT DON'T STEAL MY IDEA, GUIZ! :B

After brainstorming a while, I decided to do a Prohibition era(around 1930) basement hideout. Here's the basic layout, hope it makes sense.You can work now and play later, or play now and work later.

revenebo: Awesome work so far! The only thing I'd suggest is checking the perspective of the bridge... Might just be me, but the right two cross beams look like they are pointing downward a bit.
timothee: Can't wait to see more!
Here's a bit I worked on so far... Trying to go for a dark and creepy city neighborhood feel with some rain in the works.

revenbo - I really like this piece. Seeing so much of the underside of the bridge seems odd, but since this has a cartoon bent to it, it doesn't make much difference. Very cool.
Timothee - awesome start! Maybe see if you can inject more of the art deco/1930s feel into the scene, change up some of the rigid forms (tho it is so early, I am sure you have this in hand)
kono - I like the mood you are trying to set, but for me, this piece seems to be about the guy standing in the foreground. Maybe find a way to make the environment the star and make your piece feel less like an illustration.
tonysaurus - I really like the color and some of the shapes/movement you have forming so far, but I get a little of the same thing I get with kono - the figure is the star of this, the environment is just a stone tunnel. Be sure you are showing the lair (den) where your thief hides out and that the environment is the focus, not the figure.
I wanted mine to be a band of French thieves hiding out in an abandoned townhouse's ruins... have to see where it goes

Oh.. very cool EOW title! I'll try to get something going this weekend if team Chow doesn't immediately pick up in speed.
JessiBean: It's great to see your environment! that'll be a very fun piece to color indeed
