@miranda-hoover In image 1 the tapering of the base is reminiscent of a Russian Doll. A cast shadow in the 2nd image and more clear tapering like the 1st image would help the 2nd image read better. I almost wish in the 2nd image we could see some seperation between the two pieces. A tiny little glimpse of what lies beneath. They are nice drawings for sure.

@miranda-hoover I love your lines! Both drawings are very pretty!! And the character looks like a Matriochka especially when you add the detail of the typical Russian flowers on the skirt.

@miranda-hoover you hit the nail in the head. Can’t wait to see the thumb.
@korilynneillo Yay! I'm glad to hear it. Thanks!
@JudeKillory Oh, interesting thought! I'll play with that a little when sketching out the final image. Thanks for the tips!
@Julia Thank you! I'll be sure to include the flowers for the final version, thanks!
@theprairiefox Yay! Thank you
Here are the mock-ups I have, but I'm a bit worried they don't translate right away.
- She's standing on land by the water, looking up at a large crack in the sky. No text.
- She's on a cliff over clouds (holding a walking stick), looking at a large crack in the sky. Text reads: "There was a crack in the sky! A growing crack in the sky!"
- She's on a cliff over clouds (holding a lantern), reaching for the crack in the sky. Text reads: "And then she thought... 'Maybe I can touch it?'" <-- the question mark is a typo, and should be a period.
- She's on a tree over clouds, reaching for the crack in the sky. Text reads: "And then she thought, 'What if I touch it?'"
My intent is that the world around her is opening up like a nesting doll, so she's discovered a large crack in the sky. My biggest concern is that the crack doesn't actually look like an opening yet. Any thoughts on which of these reads best? Or how any of them can be improved in any way? If executed well enough, does it seem to fit the isolation prompt?

@miranda-hoover great concept! first one looks perfect to me - my eye moves around the composition much more on the first one - the curve of the crack reinforces the story too
@Kevin-Longueil Oh good! Thanks for your input; that's very helpful!
