Hannes, that is really really nicewowbeautiful!

I like that almost all of your images tell a story, one way or another.
Hopefully other participants go for that sort of challenge as well.
From the WiPs shown so far there is no doubt that they are technically
capable of producing a fine cliff scenario.

Sorry for not posting any new stuff, but I was basically just trying out some objects.
I know there's still plenty of time, but it seems, I'm already done. However I'll wait until I submit my entry just in case I manage to create something I like more.
The base spider object is a free model. I loaded it in 3ds Max and applied the hair and fur modifier, converted the hairs into a mesh and exported the whole thing.
I purchased the tent and the giant (CGtrader and Turbosquid). I especially liked the dumb facial expression of the giant  ;D ;D ;D
The running characters are free models as well, which I loaded into Mixamo to get the right poses.

Last but not least thanks again to Kadri, who created the sinkhole and towers file, which I heavily modified to get the cliff.

I think the guy on the right is either going to break dance or begin throwing shapes. Either way, he's making this awesome. :D
That's a mighty cliff.

That spider is really pretty awesome! But the giant seems plastic and cartoony compared to the rest of the scene (including the spider), IMO. It just seems a bit out of place? Maybe a better giant model?

Actually all the characters except the spider do look plastic and cartoony  :) See image below.
I like the giant very much. He's maybe not the best model, but his dumb facial expression made me really laugh when I found him.

So I could try to make the spider more plastic and cartoony, but I'm not sure if that would work...

That would work for continuity, but as the other characters don't show the deficiency I might just build a new texture for the giant which could lift it's resolution visually to that of the awesome spider...just my ever shrinking 2 cents Canadian.

That's pretty cool too. Reminds me of your work with the archeaological camp.

Great! Fine solid texture, those plants upside down too exciting.
