Learning How to Play Baltobian Toss

"Learning How to Play Baltobian Toss" is one example of an instance where an idea came out of a rough design and not the other way around. The idea of having aliens teaching humans how to participate in a game of theirs came out of a few drawings that I'd done of the plants that they are standing on. These drawings led me to imagine a composition where a number of figures would stand in a circle on top of the plants, and that developed into what ended up being this painting.

While I never went as far as to define all the rules of the game that the aliens are teaching the humans, it is obvious that the game requires its players to handle what's thrown their way while maintaining balance. Sometimes more than one thing gets thrown a player's way, but if they remain focused and maintain balance they'll be able to stay in the game.
