    Topic: Magical Toy

    Background: As promised, a Christmas round. The topic is fairly simple, but there are some restrictions.

    The first is that is has to be truly magical. No toys which seem to be magical because you can't immediately see how it works, but a toy which uses magic to work. Think of something the Dwarfs under the Lonely Mountain would produce, or Santa's very own elves and goblins up in his workshop.

    Second, I suppose a Ferrari could be considered a toy as well for certain whealthy people, as would be the newest type of tank for some generals, but the target group here is children so stick to that please.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a magical toy.
    2. It has to be truly magical, so no cheap conjurers tricks or hidden mechanical parts to operate everything.
    3. Make it a toy for children.
    4. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday December 30 2007 (please notice, I'm going to try to close the round the same time next week as I did with last round. This way I hope to avoid any confusion about when the deadline is exactly. If it doesn't work I'll try something else next time )

    Oh, and as you can probably see, we have our own banner! Thanks to form2function, as he was a huge help (I just saw it needs some more tweaking around the edges and probably the size should be a little smaller, but I'll check that when I get back home).

    Drats! Foiled again... This is not the last you'll see of this charlatan!

    Excellent Christmas topic, Yoitisi. Kinda relieved it wasn't a sled after two rounds of vehicles. But more importantly, the open subject should lead to some pretty fun variety of entries! And the arrival of the banner is own little gift to ourselves! I think the size looks great to be honest. Nice and legible and what a banner should be.

    PS: Sorry for the transparency issue, if that was on my end... It just confirms my calibration issues.

    Interesting idea. with Christmas looming and holidays abound. I wouldnt be surprised to find less entries. not due anything other than family stuff going on everywhere. but Ill try. hmm maybe my 7year hold can help.

    omg! to many ideas for this, and i'm not sure if i'll get time to get something finished, though i was a little worried when i first read this, all i could think of was extremely glowy(radiocative looking) telli tubies.

    PS- nice banner guys, i was starting to wonder if you had changed your mind about using one.

    dont stress form, i dont know if this helps, but its now feet and guns, i was thinking to go either way, but now i think both directions into one toy pack would be better
    though i'm not sure if thats aloud, so i may have to stick to just one half of the design, with only half the fun

    tootsy shooter

    quick concept- 2 part toy set, 1 gun and 1 footware, some kind of organic texture. gun fires some kind of magic plazma, plazma interacts with feet of oponent, oponents feet shrink so small causing oponent to fall over. effects last for approx 5 mins. made for kids, but defenetly fun for the whole family, also extremely funny when the dog decides to play

    Grenogs: A two part toy is allowed It is all part of the same concept as far as I can see. I would make sure though that it is clear that they both part of a set. Usually, this is done by using designfeatures/details from one part in the other as well, although there are more ways to make the connection clear.

    thanks yoitisi, yeah, after some quick thinking im probably going to change the gun, and give it a more organic live feel similer to the feet, resembling more like a glove rather than a traditional type gun

    moogle holiday

    [IMG]IDW #54: Magical Toy[/IMG]

    "every year the moogles in narshe forest celebrate the fall of kefka by bringing out the dragon in a box for all of the little moogles. in the hands of humans the toy would be quite dangerous, however, these are moogles after all!"

    thought I'd do a little tribute to final fantasy for the holiday season ( hope it is ok, I did it all out of my head, excpet for the moogles), just thought it up and decided to run with it... let me know if you like it or where it needs work or whatever, open to crits, though I think it is close to finished and I need to work on my abyss and medusa

    I wanted to post this christmas morning for yall , KUPO

    good news: cintiq 12wx will be arriving within a week

    bad news: haphazard schedule that involves me traveling to my parents house and home back and forth over the next week or two ;_;
