Challenge 11: Cookhut

A great turnout for our first 'anniversary' challenge! Well done all who were able to post!

For the next topic we're taking a page from a fantastic art book called "The Skillful Huntsman" which is based on a story written by The Brothers Grimm.

For those who are not familiar with the book, it follows the visual development of the tale by 3 students who were attending Art Center College of Design and were challenged to visualize the world of the story. If you are interested in reading the story, it can be found here.

One aspect of the world is a 'cookhut' that the Princess is forced to remain in and cook for all who desire food. However, she cannot ask them to pay. This challenge tasks you with designing the exterior and/or interior of the hut! Don't let the term 'hut' keep you from exploring size though. It is simply a place where food is served.

So that's the challenge! If this topic is outside of your usual drawing comfort zone then it is in your best interest to participate and learn from everyone else that posts and comments!

This challenge will end on Monday, April 6th.
