I've been dying to do this scene for a long time. Enjoy!

I like the landscaping, especially that little bit of green at the front corner, off set from the other green. I like the bow construction too... its a pity they don't make the lightsaber handles and viking horns in matching colors... :(

Is that supposed to be a mountain goat in the background? If so, I wish you'd posted this earlier so I could have used the design for my Abraham vignette.

I like that goat, isn't that head Jojo's design? You've compacted the whole creature and made it much more easy to duplicate with less rare parts.

Good work on all of your vigs!

As much as I'd love to take credit for the goat (:wink:), the design is actually by brickshelf user schlimps. I only changed the neck a bit because I couldn't get the lever into the binocular piece. :x

Thanks for the comments!

I must have forgotten to put a verse in that says his brothers' bows had lost their springs. I swear, I'd forget my own head if it wasn't attached to my shoulders! :oops: Sorry 'bout that!

Very cool! Blogged!

The bow is neat but I really like the goat. I actually like it more than schlimps's version becuase it uses more common parts (and I think it simply looks better). The landscaping is simple and effective, and all the colors compliment one another nicely. One thing I might suggest is either making the goat or the rock a different color. For a second the goat looked like a statue carved out of the rock. Simply making the goat completely dark bley would work.

Hehe.... It helps him not get shot. :P But I wasn't planning that for the vig, so thanks for the tip!
