OGR 17/11/2012Evening George,Your Hyperborean cannibal sounds like a particularly nasty piece of work! I think you're onto something with the 'body parts in ice' idea - and I think it could lend a really chilling and gruesome quality to your lair; have you looked at imagery of meat lockers? I'm thinking your cannibal's lair could have similar stuff hanging down from the ceiling on great big hooks:http://www.smittysbutchershop.com/Processed%20cow.JPGhttp://www.seniorark.com/Humor/Double%20Takes/after%201-17-08/unicycle%20meat%20locker.gifWhen I'm looking at your lair thumbnail (I know it's not 'the' one), it gives the impression of this space being quite 'domestic' - the size of someone's living room, for example. I think you need to think much bigger - higher ceilings, more 'slabs' of ice and struts of ice - because you're drawing in a slightly marshmallowy way that is making everything look rather too friendly and 'toony'. I suggest you look at ice formations and derive your interior architecture from splinters, and slabs and great chunks of ice - this cannibal is no eskimo!The same is true of your throne... I'd like to see you trying out a few more variations before settling - as your current throne is a bit generic really, as I don't think you're truly exploiting yet the full potential of a) all that ice, and b) all those bones:http://www.sinoarts.net/images/T/The%20fossil%20skeleton%20of%20a%20mammoth.gifhttp://cache.virtualtourist.com/4/4190473-The_skeleton_of_a_Killer_whale_Iceland.jpghttp://blog.evaria.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/iceberg-2-499x322.jpghttp://farm3.static.flickr.com/2189/2146301917_76a044632e.jpghttp://media-cdn.pinterest.com/upload/119134352612360300_xIlUEGJ1_c.jpghttp://www.costaricantimes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/glacier-main.jpghttp://www.eruptive.co.nz/blog/files/iceberg1.jpghttp://media-cache-ec5.pinterest.com/upload/142074563215856247_9v8aA3Zx_b.jpgCome on George, I want to see you really push your creative thinking here - don't settle - innovate!
Thanks Phill your advice has opened my imagination. :)
