As some of you may remember, I started a project similar to this last year. But school was really busy and I only completed the first chapter. You can see it here:

Feedback is welcome :wink:

Jamit, It is a good start, but it should be done in a way that forms a seamless story, rather than just scenes.

I was thinking something quite different for Arthur and the sword in the stone. Remember, the sword is supposed to be in an anvil that is on a stone. And Arthur is supposed to be Sir Kay's squire at that point, and in The Once and Future King Sir Kay's symbol is a key, so it is logical that Arthur would be wearing livery with his knights symbol. Jamit, take a look and tell me what you think.

I like the points you make, but your first pic is too dark to see clearly (at least on my screen), and I think that while a key is a good idea for Wart's livery, the design needs a little tweaking. It looks a bit bland as is. At least, I think so.

I know, I took more pictures, but they all turned out blurry, so I used that one. I wasn't quite sure how to make a key interesting, so I'll figure that out later

I don't like the way I did the sword in the stone, but I don't like the look of your Arthur.

With the Arthur fig, I was merely trying to demonstrate how a more creative version of arthur at the time of the tournament could be done. I can and probably will change color scheme, face, hair, ect. But do you like my sword in the stone?
