=NightsongWS' work is always gorgeous, but Egg Hunt: Saving the Lost Race is truly extraordinary. There's so much going on that I could spend hours picking out every beautiful detail she's included. This a perfect example of how a picture truly is worth a thousand words. A writer could build an entire world out of this image.

Egg Hunt: Saving the Lost Race



Egg Hunt: Saving the Lost Race

Sometimes, we go on hunts to find things. Sometimes, we go on hunts to kill or conquer.

And, just sometimes, we go on hunts to save the very last of something infinitely precious.


Made for the RuntimeDNA "The Great Egg Hunt" Monthly Challenge held in April 2011.

When I look at this in the morning, with fresh eyes, I am probably going to see a hundred things I want to change. But, for now, the egg hunt is done. :D

Gads. I think I forgot to change V4's face morphs. -headsmack-

And yes, this was as much an arien fan-piece as it was anything else. I have really, really, really, really wanted to play mix-and-match with the various sets of complementing textures she's made for different outfits for a long time, and seized the chance when it presented itself. :D

I also may have way overdone the depth of field. But, given how busy the foreground was, I just couldn't separate it from the background without something to force the illusion of depth. Bad composition choice on my part, I guess. I'm open to better ideas for the future!!
