The watcher and the watchtower im guessing its this

Interested in crusading for the light again but can the deadline fall on a Saturday, the 9th instead?
K Here it is
Watcher and watchtower
*watcher is not nessarily human
*LIght is not nessisarily Good Or Evil Neither is Dark
*we are battling as a team for the territory. The Illustration doesn't nessisarily have to show your affiliation it just has to Kick ass
in fact the watcher and Tower Can be LIght , Dark, Neutral, Good Evil, Mysterious, etc etc........
and I'm executive decisioning that you get the 9th too so you can have the extra Saturday.
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
alti, I'm assuming if we (headhunters that is) want to challenge somebody during this round then this is the place to do it as opposed to the headhunter's signup page or anywhere else. In my head I picture that the headhunter battles will happen concurrently while another battle is going on and as such if one wanted to challenge another the appropriate place would be in the corresponding battle thread, am I close?
Well, I'll give this a go too... Here goes nothing...
HEY LOOK AT DIS
I just finished a big project, Im free! so no more last minute renderings for me...
Like my grandma used to say " Imma whoop some ass with this here flip-flop, Imma whoop it good for you, Imma whoop it goooood" - except replace "flip-flop" with brush and "good" with nasty.
edit: hot damm alti, I was trying to read that map man, you shoulda been a doctor.
"Be who you are and say what you feel,because those that mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind."-Dr. Seuss
hey alti or chaos, I kind of got the same question as Dose206 plus a dozen more I've tried to read the different posts and threads that explain it all but it might be a good idea to put a sticky with all the rules and ideas in it together. I think I can feel the edges and all but I still miss the big picture I'm afraid (all the stuff with the loot, who gets what, what if I'm on the dark side but draw a tower for the light side -and how will that effect my loot- how to proper challenge someone for his/her head etc). I think some of these might be answered somewhere already, but before things get out of hand it'd be nice to have them all in a single thread so we can look it up more easily.
Edit: if you need any help in here you know where to find me I think this activity is one of the coolest i've seen in a while, so it would be cool to see it grow and continue.

ok, im slightly lost here,
Alti, chaos I got a wip here, but i'm only a head hunter, so can i join in this or do i need to also join either the light or dark side. If so then can you put me preferably on the dark.......or light......actualy any will do. or have i left it way to late and i cant join either, and so i can only head hunt, and im totaly waisting my time by entering this wip? haha
grenogs: You do need to declare a side, and that'll be your affiliation from then on. It's not too late to declare a side. But for this topic, side doesn't determine the look. That's how I think it goes.
thanks asatira, then i guess i'll choose dark side
~ - DARK SIDE - ~
Sellis - nice!
WIP - Needs quite a lot of fixing. Colors n perspective is not really working out, and want the knight to look far more baaad
Pretty much the same ...
pepps - thx for the crit
hmm, Im not sure that the painting is improving .. lots of things I kinda dislike
still some things that annoys me ... but perhaps in time I'll figure it out
pepps - perhaps you should boost the contrast on the foreground creatures. Then they might feel a bit closer, might give the painting a bit more depth. Good concept!
Think I'll be working on the tower n background after this... hehe, not looking forward to do the hands , I hate hands ^^
Keep up the good work!

Wow, people's WIPs look great already!
I decided to go for a non-fantasy, pseudo industrial setting. I originally wanted the watcher and the watchtower to be sharing a cup of tea, but I couldn't make it work with giving the watchtower some scale... So I'll just have it hold a teapot instead
Here's my rough planning, consider it a WIP
Eat pie and prosper
- Join the Art Crusade -
dark side, hehe
colors are not really working indeed but i'll fix them tomorrow hopefully =)
sellis: nice nice
kalas: i love the mood and the environment but i don't like the armor of the guy..too blocky maybe? *shrugs* definetly looking forward to more updates (i preferred the first wip) =)
edit: reworked eveything heh i think i found a more solid idea behind the towers and the watchers. I hope it still suits the topic:
these old creatures were once guarding the land, now they rest in a deep sleep and slowly becoming part of the environment.
still hard to spot anything..=(
i'm kinda getting into the piece i think i like the sidea indeed and i'm getting close to it i think...the foreground creatures still disturb me a bit...but the rest i think it's more or less starting to make sense...eheheh any critique i welcome of course =)
uhm...apart from the problems viewing the image outside my PS ^^' i'm still satisfied with the mood. i've just added some details...hm..no i need to put some clouds. Values are not working too well i think...and even if it's supposed to be a bit foggy and quite dead environment i think it is quite colorless...i'd like to add some yellow eheh also i like the idea of having the people in the middle exploring the place.
At this point my only concern is if the piece matches the topic enough...Indeed there are no physic towers..as the creatures are supposed to be both...let me know...=)

I have a WIP
There's so many issues though. I have to solve the bloody colours. And that tower needs a bit of a rebuild, methinks...
I dunno. I'll let it chew in the back of my brain.
