So it's not based on a literal "cellar door"? Are we supposed to play off the "Beautiful Words" theme? I didn't see the movie, but I did check the Wiki link. I just want to be clear, thanks.

Default perfect.

Perfect. Favorite movie, and favorite line from any movie. So random and common, you start twisting your brain to figure out what's so damn special about that phrase. I guess that was the point. Its mysterious. I think I know where I am going to take this and its going to be a 360 from where one might think to take it.

artiphats- I think you are supposed to draw whatever you feel fits the subject
If I do this then I'm going with the obvious way involving a cellar door and monsters or adventurers

Well, I started mine, but I'm far from sure I'll finish it. Having way too much problems finding a suitable angle and a decent composition .

AAH! My kids are better - I have a half-orc and an elf! lol, kidding . What do they say, "great minds think alike" .

I say we just go with it. Yours is looking awesome already and it looks like yours is more modern-ish, whilst mine is set in a medieval like fantasy.
I just found an angle that might work for mine, after hours of frustration.

I think it'll be fun to see the same concept in two different styles
Lets just hope there aren't too many other "4 kids and a cellar door" ideas
