how long have we got left?
how long have we got left?
like.. one day? no chance we will make it with one post a day and no updates for this whole day. I wonder what is happening??
I can try to finish my baddie today, but that isn't a guarantee. I though we had 2 days left. I will just present the way sepu suggested finished or not. Did we make a final agreement for the final size?
almost nothing is decided, finished or presented until now.
I see you guys like this idea of background - that is fast way to make same type of background for anything that will be finished.
I know that we are from different time zones, but that is not excluding us from possibility to do ANYTHING while we are awake. Why there is NOTHIG happening for more than 20 hours in this thread? no explanations either. just brilliant.
MOVE IT MOVE IT MOVE IT!!!!!!!
vshen: Monday midnight for you and I. No later.
If everyone can post their finished pieces 5 hrs before the deadline.
I'll pick them up and put them into some frames.
Size wise, email me your largest version. 2:3 ratio.
Sepu uploaded a 632pixel wide portraits.
sepu: I still think you should fill up that ribcage gap for your good dwarf.
It looks like she has no rib cage from that angle. Else everything is sweet sweet.
Kenneth, Lindsay and I are all scrambling ... but we'll get there.
Too close for some, so sorry Sarah.
Hey there! I am home from work and what not. We got plenty of time. I will get the evil human to 90% and then polish them off tomorrow! No worries!
edit-ALSO I will just skip the background shit and follow Sepu's lead. its about the Characters not the enviro!
Cool cool Kenneth. Sepu's backdrops it is.
Character descriptions. Please don't forget this one also.
Email it to me, as I might get lost in the last few hours submitting.
5. You must submit a paragraph about each character. Do a short write up for each character you create. I want to see some interesting, stereotype-breaking stuff here, folks!
Dwardo- its seems that because we are all under a crunch it would make the most sense. Its quick.
I will work on a paragraph! it WILL kind of be stereo type breaking... Ill post something tomorrow. Here is the evil human- moving along nicely. Sorry for the low qual. Its easier to just take a screenshot and post it.
That one is coming along nicely Kenneth. Huzzah for the green lits.
And I just got to say: I hate colour right about now. gaaaah - Besides not
having a solid foundation yet, I don't have a workflow in Photoshop.
I'm so embarrassed - If anyone can give me a hand, I'll be your best mate forever. :)
Still pluggin along with these pieces. The good anito is finished. I'm done colour burning and experimenting with glows. No more glows for the next 6 months.
No matter if it's human or made up, the hands the faces kick me in the coconuts all de time.
The evil Anito uuuu .... the location has yet to show itself, else it'll be the shortcut.
Dwardo! NIce work! They are all moving along well. Ide say the red fella is about finished. It would be interesting to play with the opacity of his layer- see if you can make parts of hi,m transparent. MY only idea. The big muscly minotaur is ace. I really like it. Throw some texture in, tweak the background and its done. Other one as well.
This other creature...I like the really odd thing on the left. We should use that and just blaze through.
I hope to be home early tonight to really just get these finished. I will help on those if I get the chance!
I'll give a good go on finishing everything by midnight or earlier. It's going to be one interesting day mixing this up with other work. Wish me luck!
"If it's before 12midnight, August 31st anywhere in the world, it will still be accepted"
vshen: That's Tuesday 3pm for us George.
So I can give you until 12noon, but that leaves no room for error, so, only if we really need it.
I just have to get my head on straight as to post them appropriately.
sepu: Please send or post your character write up. Prease, prease, prease. Cherry on top. :teeth:
dwardo: so 12 noon tomorrow?
The group pretty much worked like a secret society (freelancers) made up of different cells.
The occasional Internet connection each member actioned was to update the collective thread.
After this CHOW II, one wonders whether this secret society will ever collaborate again.
Sepu: Guidance councillor & First place getter.
-Checked on the rules and enforced the rules, like a witch from the east.
-Finished first with her characters. Woohoo!
-Strict disciplinarian. She drops the bomb and they exploded next to our ears n eyes mightily.
-She has alien eyes. Googley. :)
AmbientSounds: Future animator, poet, mechanical engineer. A sleeping tiger, scratching panda.
-The deep set gaze holds within funny ideas and quick wit.
-Has a fawdness for fauns. Diggity!
-She could rule the world if she wasn't so easily distracted.
SirKenneth: Rock and Roller.
-Founding member of Team Ken-Do-Pu-En-Ds
-Brought about rule with his 4 Ws.
-Star gazer and rendering machine.
-He eats bears in the wilderness.

-His mobile phone loses connectivity sometimes.
-Busy schedules eat up most of his brain.
-Presses the send email button too early

In order of appearance
12 noon ... but I warn you, I could be groggy. hahahaha. 12 noon! :)
Ok, I am posting what I would like to believe are the finals for the two characters. Again-the actual image is better qual. and I e-mailed those to Dwardo already.
Tavarian's are known for their aggressive society. An Empire constructed on war and domination. As the civilization grows in power they push into new realms, facing new foes and bartering only in blood. Yet the slash of a sword has little effect on creatures of magic. In this new land the Tavarian Empire must deal with a horrible sorcery and watch as their fellow knights transform into the very creatures they seek to destroy. They find few allies outside of the Gods. When facing the Minotaurs they can only hope a God may hear their screams.
Do I do a write up on the evil one too??
Dwardo- I wasnt kidding- add leader extraordinaire to your role because we would be nowhere with out your dedication!
Lets wrap this thing up!
Sweet, one more down, 3 to go. Tis George, Linds and I left.
Sweet job Kenneth.
Though I see bubbles on those straight lines? On purpose?
If not, check 'spacing' settings on that brush, or you could click and click with the mouse for straight lines.
Thank you for that description Kenneth, and yes please, one for the evil side too, just in case.
Awesome stuff, yours and Sarah's lighting and rendering I'm trying to reach. Inspired.
George should be off work in an hour or two, and Lindsay is sorting out her courses at the moment, but we're on the wagon and it should get there, no probs.
We were kernels on a cob. Who's to say the first was leading the other side. :D :P
[hahaha ... I kill myself]
Clarify *with Oprah voice*
I'm trying to think, but I can't. lol
Please answer the following for your characters. Prease prease.
PLEASE SELECT ONE OF EACH CATEGORY FOR EACH CHARACTER.
Gender: Male / Female
Race: Human / Elf / Half-Elf / Dwarf / Orc - (and anything else you can think of!)
Class: Fighter (Barbarians, Knights, Dark Knights, Brawlers, etc) / Thief (Assasins, Rogues, etc)/ Spell Caster (Wizards, Sorcerers, Druids, etc) / Healer (Priest, Cleric, White Mage, Medic, etc) - (feel free to make up something for this, too)
Alignment: Good / Evil (please do both for each character)
YES, THESE LOOK LIKE STEREOTYPES. IT IS YOUR JOB TO BREAK THEM. I want to see some really interesting, kick ass stuff!
edit: additionally as per the brief.
6. Also include the descriptive paragraphs for each of your characters.
Please post larger versions if you want people to see the details.
good/female/half-dwarf/mountain animal healer
bad/female/half-dwarf/wastelands diesase spreader
due to error in production - do not have bigger versions.
due to bad ass all time low mood - feel free to make any character descriptions.
sepu: hahaha, are you serious Sarah?
Alright, I'll try and come up with something.
Sorry again for making you nerve like this. All the best girl.
George and I usually leave things to the wire, it feels like Uni again. behehe.
Kenneth: Just re-reading your description, I guess the evil description is there
also. So you're all cool too. Cheers bratha.
[Let's just hope the story of this game makes total sense] ohhohohohoho
Ok, some update. Tweaked the texture a bit. Thanks to some good advice from the D.
Dwardo- if thats not enough on the bad side then I will add more. I like writing!
I am also going to post some more anito fun stuffs!
Boss! ... and yes do write more, come up with something stupid clever. :teeth: :P
And that advice was from my master Z also known as C. He's boss too.
Ok, well does the race "Tavarian" sound cool? It wasnt really thought out. Just spur of the moment. Sounds kinda imperialistic.
I also want to know who's team all the characers are on. Tavarians have the demi gods right? Does the good minotaur fight for the knights? How about the dwarfs? The anitos?
Tavarian's are known for their aggressive expansion.
An Empire constructed on war and domination.As
the civilization grows in power they push into new
realms, facing new foes and bartering only in blood.
Once the Tavarian's gain control they rule through
order and prompt justice. The communities flourish
and fuel the ever growing empire. The saying of the
Military leaders is "Through war we make peace"
These creatures, once strong Tavarian leaders and
soldiers pose a great threat to the Empire. It is
believed that a rogue dwarf witch helps the Minotaurs
enslave them. They fall ill or disappear for a time
Usually cowering in the bowels of the fortresses as
they transform into the abominations. The creatures
develop a feverish craving for Tavarian flesh (much like
the Minotaurs) and hunt their friends and family in
the night. The attacks have the entire Empire cowering
in fear and calling on the Gods and Spirits for help.
This is sounding more like a story and not a character write up... But I tried to make the Tavarian Empire sound more good....
Here is the little update thing on the anito--- idk... feedback!
:teeth: I can go for that one. I like it.
I see this evil anito as it is when it tries to get into the 'Real' world.
Hence it likes to stay in the mind. [My mind] o.0
-I really wanted to keep that eye-ball in the skull, but I'll see if I can scramble to that stage. Else that is lookin sweet. Muahahahaha.
And yea man, check out that spacing setting - just hit 'F5' (I'm pretty sure CS2 has it).
Thank you so much Kenneth. Mate, you're a farken rock. :)
Phoa, I just noticed the hair. :teeth: Yes, that's what I want.
Phoa, I just noticed the hair. :teeth: Yes, that's what I want.
Sarah, Lindsay, George and Kenneth - :teeth: - we're nearly there! woohooo!
KK, I am glad its working for you-I will put the eye back in the head part. I thought of it as more of a mask-but this that looked cool too! I tried to give a ghost like feel. I will add some symbols around it- like the good one. Also do the background trick as trademarked by our good Sepu! Ill keep you updated!
Oh yea, that's true. I'll do those, which reminds me,
If you've got some with backgrounds, you can upload send those over too - fark I forgot.
I can group them for a compilation board/piece, as Daestwen suggested that I put up the group shot of the anitos also.
edit: I hate doing hands. Why, must, you, be, so, ges, tu, ral.
