    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.

    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

    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.

    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 :

    CHOW #61 Guest Host: AndrewLey. Topic:Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls
    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...

    CHOW #61 Guest Host: AndrewLey. Topic:Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls



    -----------------------------------------------

    and this is as far as i can go in the time i have left...hope im not too late

    Description:

    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.

    Here's mine that I'm working on. Still need to get some clothes on there (nekkid merman! for shame! ) and detail the scrolls on the ocean bed, but it should be clear enough what I'm heading towards on this one.

    Sketch/WIP:

    CHOW #61 Guest Host: AndrewLey. Topic:Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls

    Final. Very little time to work on it, but this is as finished as its going to get by the deadline.

    CHOW #61 Guest Host: AndrewLey. Topic:Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls

    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.

    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!
