Default August Challenge - Witchy - Normal

I had planned to work on my first simple animation this month so I shall use this as the basis for it.

My entry will be 'Early Science' and will feature a mad scientist from the prehistoric era, his main tasks will be - reinventing the wheel, finding a creative use for fire that does not involve lightly toasting his wife, making interestingly shaped things from dinosaur bones, as well as attempting to cure disease and find 27 ways to creatively use the word 'ugh' in conversation.

Indeed I'll get round to it, but if I don't have someone to wander through it it doesn't feel the same And I am trying to play with animation this month so this provides a handy focus for building a 'set'.

Hah, awesome desk man . What you have to do is cut out the middle dark wood on each end a bit and then wrap vines or something around the wood slab on the top, it will make it look like its more of a caveman table. The basic idea is great but i think you could bevel that a bit or something. The legs though are really nicely done. Keep it up!

Excellent idea M I shall do that to it shortly. Vines are a cool idea for tying things together, I was just considering how to make my bamboo test tubes stick together and now I know. Cool!

Quick shot of cave in progress.
