- My Artwork! -
Here's mine: (Sorry for the resolution...)
Jean-Pierre Poulin, world-class explorateur, aventurier, and founder of the “Porters? Non!” Movement.
Here is my entry. Critiques welcome!
i thought you said the final pole wouldn't be up until after 2pm on monday gmt? you seem to be slightly early.
gep: Yours I like best from a techincal point. Very well done, you know your anatomy and man, that is a lot of junk on his back!
ikuru: That is probably the best drawing of yours I've seen! Keep it up!
fedezz: Cute, solid, but of course not a whole lot there. Pig is underdeveloped a little. Still a pretty piece, of course!
propishus: The guy's mouth looks a little flat. Nice detail in his equipment!
Simonstahlenhag: That's crazy over the top! Pretty cool piece, but a little gross. What's with the guy sticking his hand in the other guy's mouth?
Mr Joe: Your piece is the one I'd most like to see up on a wall. Very simple, but it just works! I give you my vote!
Migsta: Hehe, nice character. Of course there is no sense of the weight the stuff on his back would have to weigh. It's a little - slapped on.

This my final unfinished piece, got carried away here and turned it into an illustration instead of concept. The reason why it lokks the way it does.. hahahaha
And I know i probably shouldnt put this here, but well i decided that if i dont, ill only feel like i cheated myself and i wasted my weekend, so if its in the wrong place, my oppologies.
ps. Good luck everyone.
voted for my favorite 3.
yo dragon4lunch im guessing my backpack looks slapped on as well?
voted for feddie!
so odd i love it
great execution and i also like the subtle approach to overprepared - i think sometimes subtle is the best humour
FEDEZZ: I think this one delivers both beauty and humour, wich is very hard to do, you know, there's something with beautiful technique that just isn't funny. But you nailed them both, I think. Got my vote.
DIMAGYAN Your piece almost got my vote. I'm a big fan of your style, it's so damn slick, I love it!! Perfect for this topic. This piece is not very funny though.
llothcat: This one I like. A little rushed maybe. But the guy is great. Makes me laugh. He lookes like the fourth lone gunman...
Mr-Joe: This one's very good. Almost got my vote. Great style. Facial expression is the key!!!
GEP: Nice one, there's definitely some kinship here. Gotta be the elephant.
NICE WORK EVERYONE! Great topic btw.
not in time, and not nearly finished either. ah well, this is how my entry almost went.
Jasonclarke its a pity you never got this on time, you would have at had at least 1 vote here, on the simple fact its probably the most original idea out of the lot. Everyone automaticly decided to draw human characters, including myself. I never even considered animals, lol. great idea

hey Simonstalenhag thanks for your comments. yes, i'm not a very funny person.i try to do a "real" aproach to this entry but given something exagereted...but humor is not an easy task for me.thanks for your kind words.
i make some comments later
voted, and some comments
llothcat:i like how you do the figure.the transparent frame don¡t help too much to the composition(cut the feet).i would like to see some more colours in the things he carries in his backpack.
Migsta:good drawing and nice paranoic expression.i think the background colour don't work well(but i guess is a personal taste)
Mr-Joe:nice aproach and final result.
Lazy:nice paint.what is the cilynder he has in the left?
ACRO:a diferent aproach.a paranoic cooker. i think you put too much black and withe (even in the background) and it's quite dificult made that work well.
Simonstalenhag:that is an insane face and expression! really bizarre.the only thing (for me at least) that i don't like too much is the amount of things in the backpack, but i guess is part of the fun of the image(is like a town in his back)
DaveClarke:nice work, but i don't see him as a backpacker(i think is too fantasy)
propishus:really great work, i like a lot your style and the way you do colour.
ikuru:i wish you could have the time to finished, because is a very good drawing.
fedezz:muy buen trabajo, realmente lo del cerdo fue algo sorpresivo(por cierto el cerdo esta espectacular) humor y acabado fino.
gep:very good and the things in his back are very funny.i don't like too much the chop you did in the top of the image(i would prefer to see all the backpack)
grenogs:too bad you can't finished.the painting is good. i think the composition i too symetrical
JasonClarke:very good. the mouse is great, you have to finish that image

my vote went to lazy and simon, simply because the character created made me laugh!
but if only one vote is allowed, i would hav gone for lazy's irony.
was hoping to see some entry that focus more on the humour side of the concept "overprepared", a bikini clad, travel light backpacker can be "overprepared" if she suddenly find herself in the middle of a nudist camp...
technically, all entries have pass bumskee's scrutiny so no comments there (in fact learning a lot!)
My vote went to Dimagyan. I couldn’t go past the style… and the little bird on top!
dragon4lunch: Thanks, yeah I tried to shove as much random stuff in as I could.
Simonstalenhag: Yeah what self respecting, over-prepared backpacker wouldn’t pack a spare elephant? Nice work mate, I liked how u really took the excess to the limit! There was no way anyone was going to have a more in their backpack then yours!
The only thing that through me off with yours though was the main characters face. It seems like his face is on a different angle to his head. Would of got my vote otherwise, nice work!
JasonClarke: Nice work and style!
Dimagyan: Thanks, yeah I was probably a bit slack in chopping off the top. I was running out of time and thought the top needed more ropes so I thought I would chop it off so it looks like the backpack is so big it goes off screen out of shot. (Probably didn’t get this effect though!)
Grenogs: Awesome work, would be great to see it finished!
Great work everyone.
GEP: yeah the face looks a little odd I agree. I thinks it's the hair. I was trying to give him an insane haircut that kind of ran down his forehad, but it probably only gave his head a front tilt. And sure you could have more in you backpack than this guy, Mr-Joes guy have two bottomless bags. My backpack only extends down to the lake in the background.
IKURU: Jag glömde säga att din var skitbra! Too bad you didn't get more time with it.
