Just one question. What do you mean by political attack or diplomatic defense? I think I know but I'm not sure....
April 23rd, 2008, 08:20 PM
well Im just trying to make it clear that all attck and defense is not nessisarily physical or action based.
don't get me wrong, it CAN be. but it doesn't HAVE to be.
April 24th, 2008, 12:49 AM

April 26th, 2008, 08:35 PM
I'll go light side again on this one. Hopefully I'll remember to turn something in and finish this time (woops)
April 26th, 2008, 08:35 PM
Haha, that's pretty awesome Lininger. :3
April 27th, 2008, 03:59 PM
you know, i wouldnt actually call this a candidate. its just some crap i made while i was eating brekfeast. imean, look at it! it aint inked, coloured nor did i use ANY real perspective.
but hey, it looks funny. however: if anyone likes the IDEA i'll try to redo it.
Here's a diplomatic solution to the picture. apparently the captain refuses to surrender the port to the forces of evil...
April 28th, 2008, 04:45 AM
WIP - Neurons in boats!
April 28th, 2008, 09:11 AM
Nice, Im in for this one! ;)
Ok, here is the WIP! Rough pencil sketch...AND coloured setting...

If you think this is a pack of wild flying armoured whales attacking ,and a silhouette of the captain and his crew defending, you are probably right! :)
April 28th, 2008, 11:23 AM
love the armoured flying whales!
April 30th, 2008, 11:22 PM
ChaoticKnight : i really like where you're going with yours...
Blaz: armored whales? that's awesome
May 2nd, 2008, 03:30 AM
hope I can find the time to finish
Blaz:Wow thats awesome
May 2nd, 2008, 04:22 PM
here is my wip for the dark side. the daring captain will stand next to the cannon. right now i got a lot of positive space in my composition. hope i can fix that somehow.
May 2nd, 2008, 06:04 PM
@ Piecemaker: You remember the game "Ballerburg" ...? Don't get me wrong, but that cannon totally reminds me of the cover ... :D
Like the perspective you chose ... Makes the ship really look gigantic!
I'll be watching you ... :^^:
PS: Schaust du eigentlich ab und zu auch mal in deinen Posteingang hier ...? :rolleyes:
May 2nd, 2008, 08:14 PM
woah! THAT certainly speaks with authority
May 3rd, 2008, 03:58 PM
@ Piecemaker That's an intense composition. Nice choice for the perspective, maybe it's only me but the foreground perspective looks a bit wonky. Maybe it is just the arch of the FG.
For the Dark side. Here is my WIP, see if I can get this finished this time. Still lots to do.
May 4th, 2008, 02:23 PM
I like this one. I'm going to go for it.
May 5th, 2008, 02:05 AM
So, is the final burning thread going to be put up sometime soon? (sorry if 'tis already up and I missed it)
May 5th, 2008, 09:12 AM
deadline's a week away
but I can put it up soon if you like
I usually put it up a matter of a day or two before deadline...
May 5th, 2008, 05:55 PM
A bit earlier'd be good, just so people with other stuff to do close to the deadline can put their final up without any hassle. Thanks muchly, sorry if I'm being pesty :D
(p.s. these WIPs are looking particularly interesting this time - I can't wait to see everyone's finals :) )

May 8th, 2008, 05:44 PM
didnt like the shapes in my first wip so i made a new one, focusing more on the environment: port delta. on the left there will be hundreds of attacking ships and in the midground the burning port.
May 11th, 2008, 01:43 AM
I'm redoing mine, but I should be done shortly :)

May 12th, 2008, 12:42 AM
Wip still, just wanted to put up something a little more complete than the first image before the thread closed.
Light Side, A prayer for Divine Favor in the coming battle.
May 12th, 2008, 05:36 AM
For the darkside, last WIP and final I guess, since it is already the deadline:P
May 12th, 2008, 02:14 PM
Well, didn't get on this one enough, but I'm already hating it. It was gonna be a chess game, in the end the little girl next to the table was going to whisper the winning move combination to the captain, but ah well. C'est la vie. http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii148/LiquidPenguin/PortDeltacopy.jpg
May 12th, 2008, 05:55 PM
For the dark side, Final. (sorry if it is a bit late, only I couldn't find the 'final burning thread'). Heroic Captain Spike the Neuron!
(Spike the Happy Neuron is from a Neuroscience for kids website, he looks like this (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h246/mmmmmmb/spike.jpg)... I'm a fool for an unmyelinated neuron that can juggle with its dendrites :P)
May 12th, 2008, 10:29 PM

Willpost final burning
May 12th, 2008, 10:30 PM

May 12th, 2008, 11:42 PM
Final. Light side. Not as finished as I'd hoped.
May 13th, 2008, 03:01 AM
my not so finished final :(
May 13th, 2008, 03:22 PM
hey, looks awesome, blackrobin!
i wont have time to to even get to sketch 2. i just got NWN today so all my drawing projects are halted ^^'
May 13th, 2008, 05:17 PM
a bit over the time. i just hope chaos will still up mine. wish i had more time for the characters:ore:
hope u like it
May 16th, 2008, 06:07 AM
here is my final, im not happy with it at all but i give up ;>
May 16th, 2008, 01:31 PM
i really dig the noise texture. good work arme:yum:
May 18th, 2008, 04:28 AM
@ armetage: Very nice atmosphere, really like the diffuse lighting broken by the fog!
@ piecemaker: Wow, this sky is awesome, fits perfectly into the scene and carries most of the paintings expression. I just think your captain somehow goes down in the overall composition allthough he should be the one everything elese is focusing on ... Just an idea: A silhouette of the captain in profile in the very foreground (medium shot or medium close up in the right half) with wafting hair and in a keen pose supervising the ongoing battle from the fortress ... maybe ... :^^:
May 23rd, 2008, 07:35 AM
it say this round is over but can i sneeky one in :D for the light of course. If not pls tell me when the next round will begin.
These darkside ppls need some Jesus :P
May 31st, 2008, 01:58 PM
Hmm.. i'll admit, i haven't participated in any of the last crusades, but whatever happened to this activity? I've been waiting for a new topic to tickle my interest, but uhm... is this dead? Just wondering.
June 2nd, 2008, 03:38 PM
I don't know what's going on with the forums these days all the competitons seem to be temporarily frozen ... Anyway I think I'll be in for the light side from the next battle onwards.
Just for the fun of it here's a sketch I did for this topic ... :^^:
June 6th, 2008, 06:40 AM
nice one the captain turned out really well. you added a little photoshop effect there which breaks with all the linework. since you already started with the digital workover why dont u finish it? the carribean setting and fine clothings just cry for rich colors:-)
June 6th, 2008, 01:32 PM
hehe ... Thanks Piecemaker, I think my sun-moon is what you're talking about when mentioning the PS effect; in fact I just took a big soft brush, dipped the "sun/moon" into the sky and erased the center ... so no tricks at all ;)
Colors ... yeah ... but time would be also nice to have ... :^^:
June 29th, 2008, 05:48 AM
Okey so what is happening here? its totally dead :&
June 29th, 2008, 09:03 AM
it's on sabatical..... not forgotten...
I have every intention of firing it up again soonish.
July 6th, 2008, 12:50 PM
July 9th, 2008, 06:23 PM
Are we going to have the next battle now that DEEP is over?
July 15th, 2008, 04:38 PM
July 16th, 2008, 12:07 AM
this is so dead. why start what you cant finish? i guess sometimes we dont realize what we're about to go through when we do start..
July 16th, 2008, 05:04 AM
That's definitely right ... Just don't quite know where to find the link between your statement and the Art Crusades, cause right now we have plenty of time to finish what we started in here ... too much time to be honest ... :(
August 28th, 2008, 08:45 PM
too bad about this forum it had so much potential
September 15th, 2008, 02:02 PM
all we need is another challenge, im sure the moderators will kick in once reply's start rolling in with a new topic. there were also a lot of headhunting art fights, maybe having a major project would be better for the thread. So let's make it uber easy for them, what should be the next challenge?
a last stand?
a threatening discovery?
cmon i joined this just as it died
September 15th, 2008, 09:02 PM
relaunching today at lunch . 4 hours from now
September 15th, 2008, 11:32 PM
