    Stylized Animal Challenge - Oct 2007 - DINOSAUR (HERBIVORE)

    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 Dinosaurs - but only herbivores!.

    Stylized Animal Challenge - Oct 2007 - DINOSAUR (HERBIVORE)

    Sweet, dinosaurs rock. But there are so many kinds, do we just choose our favorite herbivore (*cough*Triceratops*cough*) and work with it?

    Well, this is pretty much my final thing. I will probably go back and tighten up a few loose ends here and there, but all in all, I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Yes yes, he's kinda small, but I like the layout dag nabbit!

    Hm, whatever that blue strip is on the side isn't from me...will fix it after some sleep...

    It can be anything; a invidual dinosaur on its own or a family/group/community of dinosaurs is acceptable as well but one condition is they all need to be herbivorous species

    I've never drawn dinosaurs before, but this looks fun. Please feel free to make suggestions and don't be afraid to be harsh ^^

    This is a sketch to get the idea, but I like how his expression turned out, so I might just work more on this for the final thing.

    A sketch for now...
    This reminded me of a Biochemistry teacher I had in high-school we used to call "Dinosaur"...
    Oh well

    Lone Wolf, I really like your first sketch a lot! It looks loose and funny, the second one is a little too plain (the pose in particular). I don't know if it's a requirement, but it would be nice to see the whole body instead of just a close-up of his head and torso.

    ScaryPotato, that's one CUTE stego =) The tongue is great, and I only wish the dinosaur would be a little bigger so there's more focus on it. The environment is really cool too.

    grenogs, love the colors.

    Another Tri to the bunch:

    The voting thread starts in the beginning of the next month and it is usually up for a week before the voting starts, so you can post your final even during the first week of November - plenty of time

    My first thought...looks like a hand flipping me off.
    And I'm not sure I like the tail where it is.
