    My apologies for the bare bones expression sheets - I didn't have much time. My old cartooning teacher is probably rolling his eyes right about now...

    Didn't get to finish this up as nicely as I hoped, had a done of pieces I wanted to get on there but was in a hurry and tried to fit as much as I could as neatly as possible.

    Okay I think I got everybody. This was a pretty cool challenge (and my first entry to the chow woohoo) If I say something stupid in these comments, ignore me!

    Studio Colrouphobia- This is a cool design, and it looks very well done. I like the play on the parrot idea- never seen a pirate with an adorable little bird like that! I think the only problem I have with it (and I think this seems to be true for all the pirate designs) is that it doesn't really look like a "sky pirate". If I hadn't read the brief I wouldn't know that this was anything other than your regular, run of the mill sea pirate.

    Hunger Artist- Your pirate seems to be the most original- it's very cool. Especially loving the celtic style tattoos and the mechanical looking peg leg. It might have been nice to see some varied expressions of Sam and Cynthia, the closeups seem to be the same as the full body drawings.

    Joe Solo- I really love this one! You definitely seem to have put the most effort into showing the formation of this character concept, and everything looks really thought out. The only thing that bothers me is that Sam looks more like he's from a video game or an anime than a childrens book, but it's an awesome pic nonetheless. I'll definitely be giving you a vote!

    rodimus25- You have a great style. It's fun and distinctive (I especially love the dog) Again though, the pirate looks like your average pirate. (I'm probably being picky- and I don't have much room to talk because I ran out of time before I made it to the pirate lol)

    rodriguez- This seems to be a little on the bland side for a childrens character. The colors seem muted, and the clothes are very plain. Also, why is he standing there with his eyes closed and his finger pointed in the full body picture? I like his expressions though, and the dog is cute!

    Bendragon- This one really catches my eye. I love your colors, very bright and playful. That pirates got some scary eyes lol. I think the lack of straight lines in the sword are sort of making it look more pillowy than sharp though.

    f o x- bleh lol

    Artifex33- I like this one a lot, it's very well done (although possibly a little too realistic for this challenge?) I wish I were more articulate and better able to express my opinions, because it looks like there's something strange going on with the levels of his shorts and the way the thigh of the bent leg seems to be in front of the other one. I know that the knee is bent so it's coming forward, but that foot is also positioned so that it looks like that leg is going behind the other one. Did I just totally confuse the crap out of you? Sorry ignore me lol

    Teigrob- Great character expressions! I especially love Sam lol I just wish there was some color!

    sony- Nice to see all the silhouettes ( I had never really seen this technique before this challenge, cuz I'm a total character design and concept art novice lol) Like I said to rodriguez though, the colors seem a little muted for a children's book. It's also kinda bugging me the way Cynthia's dress seems to be hugging the undercurve of her butt, even though the skirt doesn't look like it's that tight otherwise.

    t i m o t h y- It's nice to see a different take on Sam, and this is a pretty cool character sheet, but isn't he maybe a little old? I look at that picture and think of the brief where it describes how Sam is best friends with the next door neighbor girl and my mind goes to a terrible place. (maybe that's a personal failing though lol) Hey I just noticed, why are the words on his jacket backwards?

    mindlesspuppet- This is a fun idea, and well done- but there's almost nothing of any of the characters in here. It's all about the jet pack (it is a pretty cool jet pack). At first I thought this was Sam, but then I saw the braid and realized it was a girl, so is it Cynthia?

    Chate Noire- There's not much I can say about this one except that I love it

    Tommoy- Bright colors and cool style, but why does Sam look like a pirate? (he even has a hook hand) And Spot's kinda looking more like a vicious pit bull than a terrified terrier.

    Flipnastywebby- I reaaaaally like this one! Reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy. Love the wooden swords

    Catatafish- Yours doesn't really seem to follow the brief, there's no concepts or developments. I do like the sort of magical spin you put on it though, although you have a few anatomy issues.

    Bullfrogg- Yours also doesn't really seem to follow the brief, but I love the giant dog anyways lol

    yikes that was long

    The girl is Sam, Sam short for Samantha, and Sheridan is also an androgynous name. Admittedly I did put a bit too much effort into the jetpack but there's fairly good reason for that.

    I thought in order to get a feel for the character and her world an explanation of the pack was needed, it also might give you an idea of how she would move through the air. Rather than throwing a generic rocket on her pack and proclaiming "there she can fly" I chose to design one that that could be fairly practical (as practical as things things get). Consider the rocketeer, his helmet is cool looking but it's main purpose is as rudder, which is a very important point of the character which could not be very easily expressed with just a single picture.

    Anyhow, point-being, the girl with the braid is indeed Sam Sheridan, there was no mention of gender in the prompt, and I though the name was intentionally androgynous. I'm assuming this is why it's no in the voting T_T

    I'll third the call for Chate Noire's image to be included in the poll. I don't see anything obvious that would exclude it.

    Also! Be careful voting for FlipNastyWebby's image. I tried to vote for it and ended up voting for the intro text image at the top of the poll. Not sure what's up, but I PM'ed daestwen about the misplaced vote.
