Possible Idea for New CgTalk Challenge

Well not sure if I'll have time to finish this one or not. Been pretty busy as of late but I'll try in my spare time at night.

I'm going to try and keep the frog idea going in this peice which is all based on a space opera. So this is just the first thumbnail idea I have, it is humaniod frogs battleing a race of fly creatures. This Idea was mention by a few of my friends once they saw I was entering the challenge.

I'll have a few new ideas soon.

A bit of a new direction trying to get more of a myth type feel of character's having to slay the evil creature... I have so many ideas running in my head.

I like the alien in the cave, but dont forget that the picture has to represent a turning point in the destiny that will be remembered for ever in the future...

If you want to do the frog thing, you could have a scene of a ceremony where the human race surender to the frog race and give them some offering.

What happened to the humanoid frog? I had envisioned a wicked scene based on your high-tech frog...an army of them with armor variations and whatnot.
