    So I decided to start earlier, and started scratching out some concepts.  A lot of which I thought were pretty good and creative, but it'd take much too long to translate the image from my head to my art... :(

    Therefore, I went with the traditional Grim Reaper guy... But at the end of the process, I'll try to add a unique spin to it.

    Here's my concept sketch thus far:

    At this point, not sure who my foe is, this girl or the actual process of painting in a new art program...the struggle is real.

    I really didn't want to participate this week because of time. But looking at (listening to in one case) everyone's entries so far felt really inspiring and so I accidentally spent five hours painting today. :blink: <3

    My submission's a little concept sketch painting thing. A scene with a lot of foreshadowing, because that monster of course is going to be a pretty tough boss fight later on.

    Little warning because giant insectoid legs.

    I know what you mean I keep looking through at everyone's submissions because they are so inspiring and all really different, I feel like there's something to take and learn from every one of them!

    That concept is really amazing, and I love the lighting on the giant guy/insect. Very mysterious and makes me want to know more about what's going on here!

    @Neverward: Oooo. I really like the surreal feel going there. * w * And I've always loved the bright pink + black color combinations so <3 

    @mlogan: Aww thank you so much! Sadly as I progressed with the painting, I'm afraid a lot of the watercolor-y look is gone. ;w;

    @Chiara: * _ * That looks awesome, I love your work on the environment!

    @Neverward: Thank you. <3
    I have to admit that at first I was tempted to go for a purple/green colour scheme since it looks so pretty in your submission (but went with another almost complementary colour scheme in the end).

    @marimo: Thank you, environments are fun (as they don't require anatomy) so I'm happy you like it. :)

    I haven't give much thought about this challenge, because what is considered a formidable enemy is very subjective, even a slime can be a formidable enemy from someone's point of view. Then after seeing Chaos Avian artwork submission, I have to agree that the most formidable enemy is actually yourselves, you need to defeat and make term with yourselves before you can defeat other person/enemies/whatever. So here's my submission, some sort of doppelganger staring from the darkness, before you set out towards the light. Sorry for the lazy background though. :guffaw:

    I gave this topic a lot of thought, I agree on the point of self being a formidable opponent . Due to the fact that has been taken I decided to go another route and think of another. A physical enemy can be formidable, but I thought what if an opponent who could control the mind. Now that would be a struggle both mentally and physically exhausting. He is the pied piper, one who could lead the minds of mice and children.

    @CorneredCosmos I love the idea, but the picture itself seems a little dark and blurry. Must be the coke-filled pies that piper is feeding you. Other than that, I approve.

    @Makio-Kuta LOL, that picture is genius. I feel it is lacking in Ralph, though.

    @numfanklewhat I really like that. That doppelganger looks pretty depressed, which is actually a cool idea.

    @Neverward Hers is the paint that will color the heavens.

    @Chiara What's worse than spiders? Spider mechs, of course. Great job, except for one little thing: those people in the corner should be all like, "NOPENOPENOPENOPE" but are instead like "Giant mech spider? Mmmmmeh. I've seen worse. Hey, did I turn off the iron?" But that's my only qualm, it really is a fantastic entry.

    You guys are all so artsy. I feel like a kindergartener with crayons compared to you guys. >_> #Sarcasticjealousy

    The poll is now up guys, and will stay open until Monday, February the 10th.

    Thanks you guys so much for participating. We have a total of 16 entries this time around, which is pretty high. I love seeing your art.

    Personally, Chiara's entry totally won me over, so I'm casting a vote for her, and also a personal shout-out.

    Ok, I just realized that you can vote for more than one submission when the poll comes up.  This makes my voting in future challenges a little easier with the many contributing artists that I see on here.  Good job everyone!

    Never realized that either, and now my vote has been cast - with soooo much agonizing - it's too late.  Ah well.
