CHoW#205 :: Gaia
ROUND #205:: Gaia
Gaia is the Mother of Nature and the personification of Earth. She appeared from Chaos and is the bringer of all life.
- Setting can be anything! You don't have to stick with the Greek myth.
- Go wild in your design: Gaia is the mother of all life so her appearance should show her grandness.
- It might be interesting to think of the human influences on nature and how this would reflect on Gaia's appearance.

Seriously....since the two new mods the briefs have become so short and so much more for open interpretation. Damn...that's so good! I'm gonna tag along for the ride this time
I'm glad you appreciate the new mods, they deserve it, but I suggest you develop a degree of tact when phrasing your praise. Have a nice day.

Ah well....back to drawing (and studying english I guess )
This'll be my first chow, so Im going to try and push myself.
I did a couple of pencil sketches ended up with an idea for gaia bursting out or ayers rock. Im not sure about the waterfalls, I think it might pervert it with the movement of water.
Okay, here are some of my thoughts and idea's...
Why couldn't Gaia be something cuddly and cute herself? If she is the mother of nature, she could look cute herself right? Look at all the cool animals she has created.
On a more serious note. Wikipedia stated that the Greek legend says the Greek people thought the Earth was flat with the oceans around it. I'm gonna play with that.
This is what I was thinking of: Gaia pours her ingredients of nature onto the Earth after it's created. With her power and divine magic she creates the nature. On another note....why not make her into a child. Legend says she was created from Chaos, the Earth was created from that as well right? So, she can't be really old. I perceive her to be a child and play with all kinds of parts creating Nature as we know it.
Yes, she is the mother of nature. But once you create something you're its parent right?...I'm still playing with that thought. I'm gonna develop the idea more tonight.
