    Chow 107 :: Steampunk Penguin Professor

    Chow 107 :: Steampunk Penguin Professor

    ROUND #107

    STEAMPUNK PENGUIN PROFESSOR
    -------------
    DESCRIPTION
    Steampunk Penguin Professor

    He's a penguin. And a professor. And he's steampunk.

    Currently, he's on an expedition to the arctic with his assistant.

    Illustrate both. The assistant is totally open to whatever you make of it - but remember that it's the supporting character. He/She/It should not outshine our Prof. Penguin.

    The deuce you say!

    The investigative potential is simply mind-boggling in its enormity. This warrants further extensive study. With goggles.

    Definitely goggles....*walks away muttering*

    Batmans pinguin is my first thought.

    WIP:

    Chow 107 :: Steampunk Penguin Professor

    Next WIP, turned it more into a penguin and put him on a diet.

    I love this idea. The funny thing is two weeks ago I pulled all sorts of reference research for a different penguin project of mine, so I have reference already on hand and a good feel for drawing penguins. Hopefully I can pull this one together faster than I did my Industrial Design last week.

    Chow 107 :: Steampunk Penguin Professor

    "... hidden away in his secret lair miles below the earth's surface, the Penguin Professor has toiled away at his projects at the expense of all else. The few who have seen him know a bed-ridden old man on life-support ... sporting faded tribal tattoos from a past life. His long nose and the patterns of his yakuza-esque tattoos have earned him the nickname which he bears...."

    ... er ... the tattoos will come with the color version if this ends up being my final... (heh heh)

    Hey is it optional for it to be human or penguin? Can it be a penguin?

    The character needs to be a penguin, as in an animal character.

    Not a short fat human.

    I like these topics where there's animals who are the characters. KInda like Cedartuft the squirrel mage, best CHOW ever - in my opinion.

    I'll see if I have time for this, it does sound intressting.

    Well I had an idea, played around with it and BAM.. didn't turn out as planned
    I may try to make a big one where you actually can see that the penguin on
    the mech is a professor (with robes, googles and some weird professor's hat).

    I have been thinking of steampunk some time last week and it seems like every art communities are crazy about it now!
    I kind of don't get it though, if he's a penguin then shouldn't he be a COW subject? Or COW doesn't allow anthropological creatures? I don't go to the COW forum too often, so I'm not familiar about what goes on there.
    this topic is way interesting, however I will have to give it a miss, again.

    Sorry, no.

    COW deals with creature design. CHOW with characters. A character can be anything, animal, vegetable, or mineral - so long as there is a personality associated with it. (some other stuff too, but you get the idea)

    Ciao,

    The professor is young and sometimes people discount him for that reason, but with his extensive research on the cave bacteria of the arctic the others in the Academia forsteri group are finding it harder and harder.

    Here's my WIP n.n.
    Baby penguins are better.

    Always strive for perfection. You will never achieve it, but will learn so much more in the striving.
