Setting the Scene

The swamp scene ready for our character's entrance

Now the stage is set for one of our first scenes.  Awaiting the arrival of our brave knight on his shimmering steed.  Oh, and lets not forget the serpents. What's the point of having a brave knight if he just roams the countryside admiring the view and then just trundles home in time for tea with no combat involved?

Might pop a few snails in there for good measure.

This is one of our first virtual sets by Eleanor Long and will be one of the first scenes to be completed for our children's poetry book.

Through the Swampland

Oh my, I think I've taken a turn for the worse.

Oh my, I think I've taken a turn for the worse.

There seems to be a part of every momentous journey when you are forced to slow down and take stock of your surroundings, and I don't think that is necessarily a bad thing.  Stopping and taking a look around you means you have time to re-evaluate whether you really have taking the right path or perhaps back up a little and take a slightly different route.

We have ended up in swampland and have had to stop and work out why we ended up there.  The development of the inhabitants of the world we are creating have not been very forthcoming and we are now in the process of inviting new ones to our land.  Hopefully they won't be so difficult as the last lot.  Creating cool characters is hard!
