    Pre Thunder-dome

    Quote from benzo


    "Okay, I know I'm not the only one out there who is starving for some Thunderdome competition.

    People keep saying they wish there was a new one going on.....

    Well, unless a new challenge is immenently forthcoming from a moderator, I want to call out a challenge to all of the past victors.

    You all have enjoyed the splendors as Thunderdome champions for too long.....

    ITS TIME FOR SOME NEW CHALLENGERS TO STEP UP!


    The THEME:

    THUNDERDOME WARRIORS OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS


    The RULES:

    - This challenge is directed to all of the past champions of the dome. EVERYONE is encouraged to participate!!!! The question is who has what it takes to overthrow the likes of Wes9000, McNallyism, Prometheus, and others?

    - Your character is a legendary bad ass, tough, smart and blood-thirsty enough to beat all the odds and survive in the Thunderdome against thousands of foes for three millenia. Your character is thus the true Thunderdome champion of all HISTORY, as he or she is still a feared contender today in its post-apocalyptic state.

    - The warrior can be male or female. Human or non-human, but must be independant (they can wipe their own ass), mortal, and have at least the intelligence of a human.

    - The character must have originally come from an Ancient Civilization, but he or she does not need to show the weak signs of aging. As long as they survive in the Thunderdome, they don't decline.

    -The characters can be adapted to the present post-apocalyptic state, they can still possess technology, but the design must be clearly influenced by Ancient Civilizations (ex: Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, ect...) Lets just say anything before the Middle Ages for a reference point.

    -No dragons. No magic.


    SUBMISSION DEADLINE: FRIDAY OCTOBER 31.....HALLOWEEN! 12:00 AM EST

    - Entrees must be full color illustrations emphasising the character design.


    THE JUDGING AND THE PRIZE(s) ARE TO BE DETERMINED AT A LATER DATE........

    - But one thing is for sure though.... winner will recieve the FAME and HONOR that goes to a Thunderdome Champion."

    /benzero


    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    and now a word from davi
    This challenge is NOT the offical 'thunderdome', so it's the pre thunder-dome. We were trying to figure out ideas for the next thunderdome, but we aren't totally sure where we are going with it and settling out some minor details, plus trying to find a new server is being a bitch... So hopefully this will keep you interested.

    Anyways good luck guys and thanks benzo for thinking this up

    Pre Thunder-dome





    Ok heres my entry for the pre-thunderdome...black and white anyway. The culture I chose was NEANDERTHALS, haha! I know its sort of cheating, but I wanted to do it. It would be cool to update him with some modern weaponry, though. I did this a couple nights ago after work to see how fast I could get it done. I got it to this value stage at bout one in the morning after about six hours. I had planned on coloring ala the Adi Granov tutorial but have been unstisfied in the results so far. So, I'm totally open to suggestions....

    Well, I've never participated in these Thunderdome competitions before, and to be honest, I just learned about THIS one a couple of days ago. In any case, here is my entry -- an undead Pharoah warlord. I originally did this as part of an action figure design for a client, but it didn't go through, so I thought I might use it here. This was originally done in pencils, then inked with Micron pens, and finally colored in Painter 8 with cleanups in Photoshop 7. In addition, I also have a turnview of the character, but it is noncolored so I'll refrain from posting it. In any case, here it is!

    How about an intermission one with a xmas theme?
