Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls
The Chief Librarian was once a lord of Atlantis. Foreseeing the city’s demise he gathered the most sacred and powerful texts and took them to a place where no mortal could find them. He now lives in solitude, the sole guardian of the secrets that allow one to control the most powerful forces in the oceans. "Originally Posted by AndrewLeyHey man - here's my topic idea

Sounds fun, I think I might actually try and participate in this one, and hopefully this won't be like all the other times I've said I think I'll participate and then not participate.
Oooooo..... good one.....
My Kickstarter Project - "Gateway: The Book of Wizards"
I must say, Mr Lee, you have some great ideas.
Been meaning to have a go at CHOW since number 50. Posting this so that doesn't win again.

IF THIS POST DOES NOT CONTAIN SKETCHES OR PAINTINGS - REPRIMAND ME!
love the topic
doesn't actually mean Im gonna make art for it though...but I'll try and I'll drool on all the amazing and beautiful stuff you all will produce
YAY! (cheering you on..who everyou are)
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
I like the idea but I think it might be a little to complicated for me. If I have enough time and I am certainly going to try out some stuff. bleh xx
wow imaginative topic, gonna be dusty and oldy-ish, but not too sure how i would go about setting this scene, maybe some research on the dead sea scrolls, sandy pyramid style interiors and most important of all.... how to draw a scroll lol.
Any fool can know. The point is to understand.
My guy carries the scrolls around his neck so that they never leave him while he travels through a labyrinth of undersea caves to get to a new world.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
Wow, Cakeypigdog! Thumbs?? they're cool pics, I really like the big guy, cool pose and mask!
Well i'll try to make this one, even if I am not certain I can pull it in time...
EDIT : here is my take on the subject :
The concept :
Atlantean chief librarians were exclusively selected among the clown fish hybrid, for only them were able to manipulate the precious scroll made out of jellyfish hide without hurting themselves. When Atlantis fell, the long lived hybrids saved the vast majority of the scroll, and pleged to protect them until the day when Atlantis shall rise again. Today, they live in isolation, dispatched among the vast sandy sea plains, storing the scrolls at the heart of venimous sea anemone, which also provide them their characteristic mantles.
EDIT2: Following Dragon4lunch remark, I am compelled to precise that the red coral is fire coral, a highly venimous polyp. As such, it is more a potential weapon than a cane.

Graphuji and Cakeypigdog those are some nice thumbnails! Good start people, good start!
Beluciel: Hehe, I like the idea of this jelly-like coat he/she/it is wearing! Certainly quite a bit different from what I was thinking in terms of the topic - but hey, a fish creature would certainly qualify, as long as you dress it
The cane is funny, because it would be completly useless, if he is floating and swimming anyway.
Many thanks Dragon4lunch.
I asked myself what would be the easiest way to put the scrolls out of mortal reach and storing them inside deadly animals was my best guess.
Of course, thoses scrolls would have to be water proof, so I made them of jellyfish hide, and before you know it, deadly animals+jellyfish just add to clown-fish hybrid. The coat was a logical step then.
As for the cane, I didn't precise it, but one may assume it's made of fire coral, yet another kind of highly venomous polyp, and serve more as a potential weapon than a support. That and yes, I couldn't see my librarian priest without a handy support on which to lend, even if he is a fish...
Maybe I should precise the fire coral story in the concept...
nice entries so far guys, ill try to paint this guy up tonight if i have time
All done, cheers peeps

Utilizing what Atlantean technology that remain, the former lord of Atlantis hides away the most powerful secrets of the ocean. Under the depths of his now watery domain, lies the hope of a once-glorious civilisation and the one man who lives to guard it.

Real nice topic this week, lets see if I can get this one so's i'm happy with it.
Great work so far folks by the way, D-BAKER esp.
Final. Very little time to work on it, but this is as finished as its going to get by the deadline.
Lost for millenia beneath the ocean, the last remaining Atlantan presides over the remnants of a once majestic civilisation. Tirelessly guarding the entirety of their knowledge and technology until the world above the waves is ready to receive it.

wow, looking great so far kboss, I really like the way you shaded his face
kboss that is looking pretty money! How do you go about colouring your work after you are done with the black and white part? Do you look at the value of the gray tone and then chose a color and punch in the same brightness value, then paint over the gray?
cakeypigdog: Man, nice piece, but the guy's right hand is quite awkward and takes away from the overall quality of the piece. You should fix it!
