    nice, I'm in. I'm still mad I missed the last one. But I'm happy with my IDofW, so I'll just make more of an effort to do both this time.

    ok so a quick brain storm before I go to sleep. If I find the time, I'm thinking:

    A crib
    A flower
    A pit, crater, or some ruined ground
    A ray of light
    Graffiti
    Abandoned buildings, broken fences
    "God Lives"
    pipes
    barbed wire
    rain clouds

    The vision exists, now to render. (Argh, the hard part).

    artiphats the "cradle of life" is generally accepted as the spot of homosapiens genesis, the oldest peoples where life started.

    Red Rook, thanks for letting me know. My idea was basically an environment where there is destruction and vandalism all around. In the center of this chaos are the remains of a crib, where a beam of light is shining out of the clouds and at that very spot a flower grows. If the topic has to revolve around the Homo-Sapien idea, maybe my take on it could be the same but I could substitute the flower for something else relating to a people starting new in the aftermath.

    My first thought when I saw the topic was in fact some genesis, garden of eden enviro, but then I really thought that I would like to take the concept somewhere else. Genesis is about a beginning, it is my belief that Homo-Sapiens are the result of the evolution AND genetic mixing of beings both less than and greater than ourselves. Think "Homo-Erectus" + "The Gods".

    Not trying to start any long religious conversation here, but if I do go in the direction I have stated (again losing the flower), will I be totally off? I mean, Genesis / Cradle of life does not have to mean a beginning from nothing, or a very first time. I'm thinking more, "new-beginning", emerging again new out of destruction.

    Any thoughts are welcome as I am still in sketching stage anyway.

    I was thinking of primordial goo...myself.... life as in life rather than life as in Humans. I guess we are all going in different directions...could be a fountain of youth kinda thing too... or even a treasure. exciting to see the different ideas forming

    I understand theres a refernce here to LaraCroft..I dunno. one to be avoided I guess

    Chaos Rocks......and then there is Life?

    uhh the tomb raider movies just nabbed a popular idea, lets be creative and not make a reference to em But its a good example, i mean its a very liberal interpretation of it. You guys might wanna remember its an environment just keep that in mind. and build something neat around it Also the cradle of life is generally thought to be a place in africa, the origin of species so i can imagine some weird deep african jungle where the most primitive ancient life forms still rule in some isolated river basin or something, or some ancient ruins of some culture that existed looong before any mesopotamians, atleast those where my first ideas

    ah more of a cradle of Humanity, or cradle of civilization..... I thought of hotsprings and blorping mud amoebas and stuff..lots of mist and fog accompanied by torrential rain and early morning volcanos ,,wish I had time to do this but Im off to NYC tomorrow early

    I only brought up tomb raider so we could reject it....
    I like the post-apocalyptic direction....cradle of life is a bomb shelter....
    anxious to see what emerges

    Here's mine.. I just went with the first thing that popped into my head, cause your guys' posts were confusing...

    I picture it as a sacred place in some small world where the Gods first created Man (in a fantasy/mythological setting).



    I think i'm the first person in EoW to use lines in a submission :E

    This ended up being more of an expirement with Barontieri's brushes, and a fun speed paint to try and put some style into my vision more than anything else. Here goes.



    The world couldn't sustain the fallout in the aftermath of a 4th world war. Mankind, never reaching its technology cap, has all but destroyed itself. Only the small percentage of people who were able to get deep underground survived, and only in the last decade have any of them started to surface again, with hopes to rebuild. In the middle of what was once a warzone, and before that a crouded city, are the remains of a nursery. Sun rays piercing dark clouds shine on a flower that somehow has managed to grow. To those who see it, it represents the beginning of a new world. It has been decided that this is the spot civilization will rebuild from.

    man, only what, 3 entries? I guess everyone got caught up in CHOW and COW this week. Or is Oblivion really stealing everyone's time these days? Either way, I hope there are more votes than there were entries.

    Oblivion is the new Elder Scrolls PC / XBOX 360 RPG. I hear it's pretty good.
