    These are looking awesome! Really unique ideas.

    Havok and I knew going into such an open topic that it would generate very unique and abstract ideas. We want you guys to push the envelope as to how you interpret what "Life" would look like to you.

    With that said this is still a Character Design challenge.

    Noun You have a very cool idea, I would suggest introducing some more humanoid features, right now its reading as very abstract. Adding a faint silhouette of the infant's limbs/body inside as you suggested might help, give it a try.

    Aragah Nice thumbnails! Yours is right on the border of becoming a creature, I think your first thumbnail reads as more of a character.

    Hope that helps

    Life and Death

    Something that amuses me, just a sketch, not the final. Used some brushes I found on the interwebs

    Everybodies looking good as usual

    Sushy: I love the Bee concept, it reminds me of the Egyptians. I think if you made the bee's smaller and more of them the feeling of her being massive would be a cool concept. Although it looks good already to me.

    mcreation: The high contrast character is awesome! I'm not so sure about the arms with the swords though, I think you can loose 'em but it's up to your gut in the end anyway.

    giby: You might have mentioned this before but is Life the angel or the woman? It's probably the angel but I think the concept should be clearer that he represents life. I think the angels halo should glow more, to make it more godly, maybe a little larger too. Watch his anatomy as well but otherwise awesome concept work!

    Quinn Simoes I agree man, it's a really cool topic and it's awesome seeing everyones interpretations. I think the biggest challenge is making an original character which reads as 'life'.

    Thought i'd drop some refs of my ideas and inspiration to 'life'.

    Varguy - That's really looking promising! The colors are bright and indicative of what we all think of as "life", but they're stemming from something unknowable, and a little scary. Can't wait to see the rest!

    Here's my WIP, needs some more detailing. Someone let me know if this is too "creature" - I see it as an embryonic form of a god-like character, and meant to be taken literally, but I can see how it might not fit the character label:

    My concept's WIP, currently established my colors.

    I was going for fierce colors, with the concept based on the combination of flames and flowers,
    as life is a cycle, birth and destruction to give room for new life to grow.
    There's corals and branches and roots on the lower half and feathers and various epiphytes, as life is both in the sky and on/under ground/sea etc.

    My eyes are buggin out on me, which means I need to call it a night on this. Progress so far.

    I got a bit carried away with the background. She still needs much more attention, I intend to add more to her.

    Oh well, I'll get to it. Thank god for layers.
