    Stylized Animal Challenge - Sep 2007 - HYENA

    Welcome to the Stylized Animal Monthly Challenge, sponsored by Zoo Publishing Magazines and 3DTotal. Please post all images & questions in this thread.

    What is this challenge all about?
    Each month we will select an animal and post some images as reference. All you have to do is create a 2D Painting of this creature in a stylized / abstact / cartoon style whilst keeping your creature instantly recongnizable. We wanted to publish some content in 2DArtist Magazine on how to create stylized animals such as you see in the many feature films and cartoon galleries. We thought this regular competition might bring in just theimages/making ofs we need whilst giving away great prizes and exposure. If it's a success we will start to boost the prizes up as much as possible!

    What are we looking for?
    Funny and humourous entries which break the animal down to its most recognizable components, enphasize these in whichever ways you think best and render your stylized/abstact/cartoon masterpiece.

    Timeframes and requirements?
    The rules are pretty laid back, please submit 1 2D Final Image. If you want to have a background, include some graphical elements or text on your image its up to you. Image posts should be around 800 pixels across, but please work at a much higher res as the top 10 will be featured in. 2DArtist Magazine . There will be 1 comp per month, with the deadline being the end of the month GMT. For a valid entry, just make sure your final image is posted in the main competition thread before this time.We require the top 3 winners to submit 'making of' overview articles that will be shown on either 3DTotal or 2DArtist Magazine , these need to show the stages of your creation, different elements and some brief explanation text, of why and how you did what you did. We will format this into some nice looking pages to give you some great exposure and us some quality content.

    Posting Works in Progress
    Each competition will have one thread that starts with this info and the brief at the top. This is where all entrants post all WIPs give feedback and generally laugh at the crazy ideas that are emerging each month.

    Please dont start any new threads!, Just reply to this one already set up.

    Prizes!!
    1st Place Any 3 items from the 3DTotal Shop. We sell lots of items these days such as our book, Design Studio Press books,textureCDs, Shorts DVDs,Lots of training DVDs and 12 month subscriptions to 3DCreative Magazine and 2DArtist Magazine .

    2nd Place
    Any 2 items from the 3DTotal Shop.

    3rd Place
    Any 1 item from the 3DTotal Shop.

    We do unfortunately have to limit prizes to 1 book per winner per competition due to high postage costs for heavier items.

    Judging
    Everyone who entered can cast a vote of their top 3 in order, we will award 3pts for a 1st place vote, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. Then we will add them up and ship out your prizes!

    This month we have chosen the HYENA.

    I started to work on my hyena. This is what I've got so far.

    Edit:
    I had some time so I started to add some color on that fellow. Also made the head a little smaller.

    Don't hesitate to write some C&C

    I live in Melbourne, and Platypus are the almost non existant, they are the hadest things to find. Echidnas on the other hand are easier out in the country. I love echidnas....but I can't eat a whole one.

    Platypus would be better to draw I think.

    It's been a while since I participated so I thought I'd whip up something.

    Still a WIP.
