Chip Oakenbrow had decided it was time to leave his home and take part in the epic search for the sword of Karlamac. So, he packed his things and took off through the forest with the agility of a deer. Ever since he was little, Chip's grandfather used to tell him stories of how there was a secret clue hidden at the very heart of the Forest, which would lead the finder to the lost sword of Karlamac. When Chip arrived at the dark, seldom-trodden center of the forest, he began to become discouraged, for he did not see anything that resembled a clue. Just then, he came upon a small pool of clear water, and from the center of the pool rose a small statue. Chip gasped when he saw what was standing atop this stone structure. It was a forest fairy! Chip had heard tales of them when he was a child, but he had never thought that they actually existed. Slowly Chip approached the small creature, and abruptly it took off into the sky, leaving behind it a trail of glowing sparks. Now all Chip had to do was follow the fairy, and it would lead him to the sword.

The fairy lead Chip deep into the heart of the Forest, farther than he had ever gone. Suddenly a small clearing opened up, and at the center of this clearing stood a stone pedestal. Mounted on this stone pedestal was a great wooden statue of a Forestmen, and in the statue's hand was held a great and powerful sword; it was the great sword of Karlamac.

Well, these are my two entries to the Second Global Challenge. I was under a bit of time pressure, so I had to stick with a pair of vignettes. Enjoy! :)

Great entry! The circle bases look amazing. I also like the purple flowers and vines in the first one.

I agree about the bases...simple and elegant. I also like the clever use of pieces in the statue!

The round bases really set off the builds well, the trees are also really neat :D
