Illustration final ARGGH

So! Still kind of not sure what I'm doing, but I have at least some ideas to throw out there. While I wanted to initially do a comic (and still kinda really want to do) I'm not sure I'd be able to get a successful concept together for a 2-3 page comic. Anyway, all the ideas I have for comics right now are either 1 page or ideas spanning volumes, so probably not.
I do know that I want to experiment more with digital painting, character designs, and environments, so I'm considering doing a mini "proposal", as if for a tentative comic, animation, video game, etc with character designs and one or two scenes( and maybe a comic page or two depending on what I would be proposing). I'd really like to base it off of one of my longer original ideas, but I'm not sure if this would be suitable for the assignment, based on the other discussions about original concepts/stories/characters. I have a few undeveloped original concepts that I wouldn't mind messing around with, but it's pretty easy for an original concept to actually suck so yeah.
So is original stuff ok for this assignment? Would it depend on the quality of the original concept in question or should I just base it off of an earlier assignment?

I'm okay with a mini proposal, I'm just a little wary of 100% original stuff for this particular assignment, since it makes it harder for you to focus on technique etc. I would prefer if your proposal was based at least in part on some existing story...You can get creative with things, it's just easier to critique when some of your basis for it is something that we know. (it doesn't mean it has to be based on an earlier assignment, though) Does that help?

Sure! I just needed some clarification on what was ok for original stuff. I'll post my concept once I get it written up.
