    Stylized Animal Challenge - Jan 2008 - DRAGONS

    Welcome to the Stylised Animal Monthly Challenge, sponsored by 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 stylised/abstact/cartoon style, whilst keeping your creature instantly recongnisable. We wanted to publish some content in 2DArtist Magazine on how to create stylised animals, such as you see in the many feature films and cartoon galleries, and we thought this regular competition might just bring in the images/Making Ofs we need, whilst giving away great prizes and exposure!

    What are we looking for?
    Funny and humourous entries which break the animal down to its most recognisable components; enphasise these in whichever ways you think best and render your stylised/abstact/cartoon masterpiece!

    Timeframes and requirements?
    The rules are pretty laid back: please submit 1 x 2D Final Image. If you want to have a background or include some graphical elements or text on your image, it's 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. A 'VOTING' thread will be created at the end of the month. For a valid entry, just make sure your final image is posted in the 'VOTING' thread before the 8th February 2008. Voting will take place from the 8th February to the 16th February 2008, when the winners will be announced. We require the top 3 winners to submit 'Making Of' overview articles that will be shown on either 3DTotal or in 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 don't 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 DRAGONS!

    Here is a half an hour sketch. I took a more rough look to it. Tell me what you think?

    You are right, this was more of a line test. I haven't drawn in 3 months. I really like the body, so I'll do something with the face.

    addleheaded, That looks cool... And, yeah, a cool texture for the skin is a must...
    wargrafix, I agree with addlehead, great linework, I wonder what you would have been able to do, if you had been drawing those 3 months

    i just thought about giving my dragon a more serious look.. like he's pissed off or something like that.. and also i thought about taking the texture out of this reference.. this will be a lot of work for me to do x]

    Yeah, it's about time I joined in on this again. Since no one has gone for the chinese version yet I thought I'd be the first.
