*drumrolls*

And here is already the next sketch, this time from Quellion, featuring the Vale Brownies (male and female). The background might be familiar, as it is taken from the grass snake picture, where we have precisely this perspective we need here.

Note the little details Quellion integrated in this picture: The nut helmet and leavy clothes of Mrs. Greenbark - as weapons the slingshot and the blowpipe are integrated - cute, eh?

hurray for brownies!!

I really like the male one, personally, though maybe his legs could be a little thicker, like the miss's, maybe? Or maybe the foreshortening is just tricking my eyes. Anyway, I can't wait to see the results. :smile

very cool. Maybe a flower with blossom or something similar (mushroom, fly, bee...) of known size would be good to give away their true height? At the moment the stones could be a rock formation as well and the grass is not that high that it couldn't be high steppe grass or something like that.

Yup, adding a flower for height comparison was also part of the idea, though I guess we still haven't precisely define which one it should be. Does anyone of the plant-makers have a suggestion what flower/plant we should illustrate here?

And here is a brand new version Quellion just sent... The female Brownie is nearly fully coloured already as you can see, so the picture is nearing its final stages...

P.S. Still need a flower to be depicted on the picture - so if there are no specific proposals, I'll suggest something myself to Quellion.

They are really cool, I like the pose of the male, how he holds onto the boulder to stabilize himself!

Gorgeous picture, Quellion!  :clap  

What about the Erissa's Tears flower for the picture, since it's a small flower and you'd be able to fit it all in :)  (unlike, say, the Azure Flower which is about a ped tall and all you'd see is stem!)  There's no picture for it yet, but there is a very detailed description.

It may be difficult to fit these tiny plant into this foreground, Alysse, but what about a goldenbell bush?

Hmmm, well, I've made 3 suggestions to Quellion yesterday, from which he can pick one: Allia, Erissa's Tear, Lady Fingers. Allia and Lady Fingers would be drawn in smaller versions, though. Well, let's see what he prefers.

The final version of the Brownies has arrived! As you can see Quellion opted for the Erissa's Tears when deciding what additional plant to draw.His first option was the Allia but it was too big for the picture, twice the size of a Brownie actually, so it would have only appeared in part. Erissa's Tears might be a bit small on the other hand, but the size of the flower is in correct proportion to the Brownies.

Well, all in all - a magnificent picture, no doubt about that - and we'll also have illustrations for a possible entry on the sling-shot and the blowpipe aside from the Brownies themselves and the flower!

I think the shadows are beautifully done. :loveeyes  I was wary of the shadow on the grass on the unfinished version - now that it's finished it looks perfect. Also- I always have loved little reddish colorations on skin. It makes them look so alive. You rock!
