    Chow 110 :: Historical Gender Bender

    ROUND #110

    HISTORICAL GENDER BENDER
    -------------
    DESCRIPTION
    HISTORICAL GENDER BENDER

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

    You must take one real historical figure from any period in history (up until 1950), and recreate that person in the opposite gender. You may place them in a different time period, a different planet, an alternative universe, -whatever you like - BUT you must make it recognizable as the person you are attempting to portray, using either costume, props, facial characteristics, whatever you can think of.

    You can do this in whatever style you like, just again, make the historical figure clear and recognizable.

    This is a research topic. Therefore, you must provide at least one link and three pictures (whether they be pictures, paintings, etc) of the historical figure you are portraying when you submit for the final burning. Anyone missing any of these will be disqualified!

    (If you're having trouble finding reference, don't hesitate to pm me, and I'll try to help you out.)
    _________________________________

    DEADLINE
    SUNDAY, March 23th, 2008

    The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
    In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday evening my time (GMT - 8 ) yet I'll have a look at the last entries.

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

    Remember to include your nickname in the filename.

    About quality - as general rule: if your shapes and values are not decent - you are out. Watch proportions, perspective etc. we need perfectly readable shapes and coherent, consistent values.

    _____________

    BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. Oregano and Daestwen (yay!) will make the selection.

    Oh! I should also mention:

    It's Perfectly fine to do a figure that someone else is doing, but you better have different reference and pictures.

    Sorry to make life difficult for you. Can I tell you how badly I want to see a hot Lord Nelson? I'll let you guess how badly.

    (Spoiler: really badly.)

    I was going to try to con other people into it, but I think I just *have* to do it myself....

    Hehe! You're not making life difficult. Just... active! Lord Nelson would have been great actually, but I'm off on a different tack right now. Shall we just say I've started in Earnest.

    New here too. I'm also going to do Julius Caesar. He seems like quite a character.

    It depends who it is. You have to make a pretty good case for it... no gods, or anything like that, but you might be able to argue 'King Arthur' with me...

    But. If you're taking that track, you *better* check with me first - i reserve the right to disqualify anything that isn't a legitimate person.

    My first thought was Abraham Lincoln, but god, I couldn't do that to some poor woman.

    I considered Joan of Arc at the moment I read the topic, but for me the gender-bending should really do something to the historical and contextual dynamic - I think the fact that Joan of Arc was a woman to begin with was pretty extraordinary in that age, so to flip her and make her a male would make her like any other sword-wielding leader of the day.

    However, the two that stuck out most in my mind, if you want to go the warrior-princess route, were Ghengis Khan and Attila the Hun...would love to see two strong Frazetta-style Amazonian warrior ladies gender-bent from their original source material...

    I don't think I have time this week to enter, so I'll pass along my idea: Musashi, famed japanese swordsman.
