Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls
Hey man - here's my topic idea
"Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls
The Chief Librarian was once a lord of Atlantis. Foreseeing the city’s demise he gathered the most sacred and powerful texts and took them to a place where no mortal could find them. He now lives in solitude, the sole guardian of the secrets that allow one to control the most powerful forces in the oceans. "

Been meaning to have a go at CHOW since number 50. Posting this so that :xbox: doesn't win again.
edit: Some thumbnails from me:

My guy carries the scrolls around his neck so that they never leave him while he travels through a labyrinth of undersea caves to get to a new world.
February 28th, 2007, 04:11 AM
real nice topic.
first few thumbs
got a busy weekend ahead so thats me done folks.
February 28th, 2007, 04:47 AM
Well i'll try to make this one, even if I am not certain I can pull it in time...
EDIT : here is my take on the subject :
The concept :
Atlantean chief librarians were exclusively selected among the clown fish hybrid, for only them were able to manipulate the precious scroll made out of jellyfish hide without hurting themselves. When Atlantis fell, the long lived hybrids saved the vast majority of the scroll, and pleged to protect them until the day when Atlantis shall rise again. Today, they live in isolation, dispatched among the vast sandy sea plains, storing the scrolls at the heart of venimous sea anemone, which also provide them their characteristic mantles.
EDIT2: Following Dragon4lunch remark, I am compelled to precise that the red coral is fire coral, a highly venimous polyp. As such, it is more a potential weapon than a cane.

March 1st, 2007, 07:56 AM

Utilizing what Atlantean technology that remain, the former lord of Atlantis hides away the most powerful secrets of the ocean. Under the depths of his now watery domain, lies the hope of a once-glorious civilisation and the one man who lives to guard it.

Here's mine that I'm working on. Still need to get some clothes on there (nekkid merman! for shame! :) ) and detail the scrolls on the ocean bed, but it should be clear enough what I'm heading towards on this one.
March 1st, 2007, 10:06 PM
probably won't be able to finish but here's what I got :\
awesome Cakeypigdog and D-Baker
March 2nd, 2007, 08:05 AM
Real nice topic this week, lets see if I can get this one so's i'm happy with it.
Great work so far folks by the way, D-BAKER esp.
Final. Very little time to work on it, but this is as finished as its going to get by the deadline.
Lost for millenia beneath the ocean, the last remaining Atlantan presides over the remnants of a once majestic civilisation. Tirelessly guarding the entirety of their knowledge and technology until the world above the waves is ready to receive it.
March 2nd, 2007, 07:11 PM
Might as well call this finished:\
D-BAKER and cakeypigdog....you guys own.

Every morning she would wake, the last of her kind. Her servants had passed long ago. Every waking morning was a ritual, a remembering.
Every day she would tend to the responsibilities entrusted to her by a forgotten race. Her pets, as she knew them, kept the histories of a thousand years safe, and as she passed by each one, it would gently nudge her, tentatively, respectfully, reminding her that they knew, and remembered.
Every night she would slip into her bed. The folds of sleep would press softly against her, and she would pass from one day to the next. Her life would never end.
In the morning she would wake...

Here's my Final. Not that I had a WIP.
D-Baker: Awesome stuff. I kinda liked the suckers on his arm before, but your coloring is so off the wall, I love it.
Corrik and Kboss: Can't wait to see those finals.
March 3rd, 2007, 05:40 PM
Hey guys, some sweet entries again. Anyways, I was starting with a old miser type scribe, but I always think my stuff is too 'safe' and it kinda pisses me off at myself. So I ditched that idea and thought about it, we have this guy who was a Lord of Atlantis, who saw the end coming, perhaps no-one beleived him, called him a deluded doomsayer, so he gathered the scrolls and secreted himself and the scrolls away for enternity. The long, bitter solitude has twisted him into a madman, frightened of every shadow, every noise and the anger has made him visicious. so on and so forth...
Anyways, heres a wip to see where I am heading, I thought I take a chance as its an exercise and thats the point, right?
Soorry! Down to the wire again, morale of the story dont change ideas mid term! Pretty rushed not happy with the hands or the pose now Ive finished d'oh oh well, in the hands of the judges!
