View Full Version : Teen Challenge #32: Alien Mount and Rider.
July 26th, 2007, 01:00 PM
G'day dudes, looking forward to seeing what you can come up with.
Anyone ages 13-19 may submit an entry at any time before the deadline. Please host your image on a remote image-hosting site instead of uploading it to the CA server. This makes it much easier to transfer it to the poll thread.
Alien Mount and Rider.
Two designs this time, try to make them belong to the same design language, so if the mount its light and nimble the rider would be light not a fat guy riding a tiny chiwawa.
Also think about the position of the rider, could be sitting, standing, horse and chariot style... lots of possibilities. You can also make them seperate but it's nice to see how a design works.
Remember the rider doesn't have to be humanoid. Be creative.
Please add a small description or storyline. We don't want a five page essay but make it nice, brief, and to the point. Especially if there is something in your design which needs explaining.
Add a border around your image with your name and the topic, like they do with the other of the week challenges.
Friday, August 10th at midnight PST
Two weeks. Plenty of time. Even if its a sketch its good to show your ideas.
July 27th, 2007, 05:41 AM
a fat guy riding a tiny chiwawa.
I think that could be fun. ^^
Anyway i'm in.

yes, of course, as long as you give everyone some treats.
Sweet! I was worried that there were more requirements. However candy will have to do as I have no ability to make art treats. *passes out bubblegum*
If push comes to shove, can I post later and just not be in the running? (lots of college stuff happening right now)
July 27th, 2007, 12:22 PM
count me in :)
how bizzare can it be?
July 27th, 2007, 01:06 PM
I'll participate too! :D ..I'll start right after I've finished Gangus' ChoW.
July 27th, 2007, 01:55 PM
I'm in for this one.
I'm so lazy i'll probably get stuck in the sketch phase, as usual, and i'm leaving on thursday, but i should be able to do SOMETHING :D
July 27th, 2007, 09:55 PM
I'm in! Finally I can join when it's not too late.
July 28th, 2007, 12:21 PM
ooh this could be very cool.. Lots of creative stuff to do with this because of the "alien"
hmmmz gotta get sketching.
You were saying a sketch is okay too as an entry for this?
Then I might even enter something this time :P but If I enter a sketch, I'll try to make it quite a finished sketch allright? ^^
July 28th, 2007, 06:54 PM
Giger tribute... for a lack of original ideas... >>
Hope this doesn't break any rules or laws ;D.
July 29th, 2007, 03:14 AM
"ahhh ffs, ill take you where you wanna go if you just stfu #§%#2"
July 29th, 2007, 02:29 PM
This topic looks pretty nice. I might take part in this...
July 30th, 2007, 02:44 AM
My humble contribution to this thread.
As a side-note, what is the best way to produce a border around the image? I had to MS Paint mine.
July 30th, 2007, 09:58 AM
If you have photoshop go edit>canvas size and make the width about .5-1" bigger as well as the length. This will make the canvas bigger withought increasing the size of teh image. then fill in the empty space with black.At least, thats how I do it...
July 30th, 2007, 11:07 AM
Brainless 20min sketch. Might go with this, might not.
'Public transport alien-spider thing'
'In the not-too-distant future when the price of fossil fuels has risen to sky high the working-class citizens no more have the money to use vehicles for transportation. Luckily, at that time the world witnessed the first alien encounter and the visitors indeed were coming in peace! For a further surprise to everyone, the humanoids were willing to help humans with this serious problem of theirs and offered transportation creatures from their own galaxy to be used for free. The world was saved and everyone was happy!"
July 30th, 2007, 03:59 PM
Thanks for the help, Goog. And Savant, I love the expression of the... slug-creature.
July 30th, 2007, 08:14 PM
redid an old sketch, turned in quite nicely :P
might wanna add a background later...

On his home planet, Morvor was a great and feared warrior, and his steed was the fastest and the bravest of their land.
So Morvor just couldn't understand why he kept being laughed out of the galactic combat area.
July 31st, 2007, 04:23 PM
I've been meaning to participate in one of this challenges. Count me in. I'll have something done hopefully by tonight.
July 31st, 2007, 04:58 PM
Hey, nice stuff guys, I'm liking every single one of these entries donut yours is nice but the muscle structure in the lower legs looks a little odd to me, wolfbane yours looks great and I love the speach bubble with the white background but it would be cool to see one anyway. Savant the idea looks really cool but the colours don't really seem to gel together all that well (just my personal taste). Luxun yours looks really cool and i like the idea but the backgrounds a little bland, if it's meant to be sand then you could show the creature making a slight indent into it maybe? Mehz nice looking idea but your alien doesn't really have anything like teh menace the films one does, maybe angling the head down a little more would help. Anyway apologies for failing to complete on the last 2 challenges (lots of work then a holiday), I won't say that I'm in on this but if i manage to get anything done i'll post it.
August 1st, 2007, 03:27 PM
Can I still get in on this? Whens the do-date?
August 1st, 2007, 03:31 PM
Read the first post, It's august 10th. Pleeenty of time.
August 1st, 2007, 03:47 PM
Great! After I finish my CHOW I'll get right on it!
August 1st, 2007, 08:04 PM
The Nun-Arthiel have mastered the science of bio-technology, the riders attach themselfs to the maggot like creature not with a saddle, but by inserting their legs in two custom fit orphises. They control the creature through a nerve cord that goes from the Nun-Arthiel to the brain of the mount. These scouts are well suited to cover the rough mountenous terrain of their homeplanet.
August 1st, 2007, 09:40 PM
Alright here is mine, more or less final, might fix up the saddle a bit later.
August 1st, 2007, 10:31 PM
August 2nd, 2007, 08:14 AM
Great entries all
here's mine. might fix it up later, but right now im so sick of looking at it.
I know it's not a classic alien, but you sure as hell can't find it here on earth (guess that qualifies as an alien).
August 2nd, 2007, 10:22 PM
I finished my entry, wish i could spend some more time on it but i have other stuff to do.
Cool concept ChillPill
August 2nd, 2007, 11:32 PM
This is gonna be my first time at this and needless to say I'm slightly intimidated, the entries are already amazing! But I'm in!
August 3rd, 2007, 09:36 AM
Hey, I haven't tried it before but I'll have a go at this.
A couple of pencil sketches and a WIP I'm still working on
I went with quite a conventional fourlegged land mount, but it's just for fun eh. The pegs sticking out from part of the harness I thought could be used both to climb up onto the mount and also as a range of footholds so the rider can be in a wide variety of poses depending on the situation.
I liked the idea of a rider with one pair of arms to hold the reins and an extra pair for other tasks. Shooting, eating, looking through binoculars etc. so I went with a little four armed fella.
I'm thinking that they are part of a force occupying earth so they dont look quite at home or camoflagued in the environment but still are having no problem keeping us fleshy humans in our place.
Nice entries so far.
edit: I just saw it on a different monitor to that of my laptop and the colours look a bit over-saturated I think. I will have to fix.
August 4th, 2007, 08:30 AM
Happy birthday sloth!
Ugh, a fuckin octopus/squid with fins and a girl on top....not even a fuckin alien mount/rider... :(
I see no hope in this.
Good job guys :)
August 4th, 2007, 05:38 PM
It looks like it'll be a good compitition this time! Wish I could enter, but I don't have enough time to fully develop something (yay summer fun). Good luck to everybody, I'll be voting.
August 5th, 2007, 07:28 PM
The people of Edan 6 have a great relationship with the animals of the planet
(not overly happy with it but meh thought id have a go any way)
August 6th, 2007, 08:54 AM
Cool shit guys! Thanks Sung, meh 19, so old..
Fired up faithful painter for the first time in months.
August 6th, 2007, 10:40 AM

Here's my present: :360_old: .
August 6th, 2007, 11:00 AM
Crud, there's no way I'm going to be able to enter; work and college preperation took over my life.
August 6th, 2007, 03:10 PM

August 6th, 2007, 06:49 PM
Final.. Time to get some sleep...
August 6th, 2007, 08:24 PM
Evil_Slothdamn it... that is going to look so amazing once done
Prophet-awesome, why not have a seperate picture as a close up of the alien?
August 7th, 2007, 08:22 AM

August 7th, 2007, 01:56 PM
Rofl Goog, does it come with Halo? <3
No, but it does come with this : http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b250/Googprod/xbx_849913.jpg
August 7th, 2007, 05:17 PM
wooptee doo, first post :rendered: ! I'm 17 and this is my entry.
August 8th, 2007, 02:13 AM
Im 15 and this is my entry, basically my first all digital piece ever.
"EEK!!! The gopher people on the world of Ekarin have always been oddly calm, rule abiding citizens. Not Simon though he frequently fins himself in troublesome cituations, in those times hes lucky he has Buster the lovable riding serpent.
August 8th, 2007, 02:30 AM
Can I possibly whip something up in less than three days??? I doubt it but I'll try... when is the next teen challenge?
August 8th, 2007, 03:18 AM
Just a sketch, I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish in time. Basically, the rider is a mutant breed created from the mount. The mount, called a "Leex," is now used by its cousin breed for transportation since they can barely get around on their own.
August 8th, 2007, 05:35 PM
I'm dropping out sadly cus I'm going on holiday tommorrow morning and won't have time to finish.
Nice work everyone, love yours especially Prophet. Ace.
August 8th, 2007, 09:47 PM
Hey, what up guys? Long time no see (like two months? yikes)
I'm just back to say I'm back, I was taking the RISD Pre-College program this year, and my traditional art skills have improved tremendously. Hopefully this will translate into my digital art skills, because you guys have really improved over those few months.
I probably won't be able to enter into this one, I lost my pen at the airport, must of dropped out. I'm hella pissed about it, but I'll pretend I'm not :D
August 9th, 2007, 06:34 AM
Cool works guys.
I wasn't really inspired on this one...
Here is a first test wich ended in a damn kitsch off topic thing but i wanted to
show it because there is something in the render that i like what do you think
about it guys?
And my entry, i tried another render, maybe more cartoonish, i maybe could
have spend more time to refine but ...
August 9th, 2007, 07:55 AM
Dude that first one is focking sweet! Great colors and rendering, especially with faces. The creatures legs seem a bit awkward though.
Not digging the second one too much to be honest. If I were you I'd change the actual entry pic to the first one.
August 9th, 2007, 01:50 PM
Hey kevzip really nice stuff (ton premier il a de supers reflets ca brille bien ,le deuxieme moins et la flemme de lécrire en anglais ^^)
Here is my Wip
August 9th, 2007, 03:53 PM
Alright, here's my final. I call it "Husk" and there's a back story:
Nearing death, King Husquamente of Mercury demanded that his priest make him a golden god so he could live for eternity and be worshiped by many. Appalled at his request, the priests called on assistance from the gods. They wished to bind his soul to a gold skeleton with a melded mouth so that he could never speak such hubris again. The gods agreed and banished Husq to the desert, where he now eeks out a living by absorbing the energy of the dying. He travels the desert on the undead husk of a basilisk He is silenced forever, a god to no one.
August 9th, 2007, 04:18 PM
http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa156/yannnovakoff/bokluki.jpg Hello I am 18 years old and this is my alien rider
August 10th, 2007, 10:56 PM
Drew this up real fast in a few hours tonight, as I just stumbled across this thread, I need to stop lurking and participate more! :)
Anywho, I'm 16, and here's my alien and its mount
Still not happy with the feet/legs and arm of the demon/alien, might come back to the concept later and work on it more....
