    Just join, follow the brief for this week's topic create a piece for that work then submit when the finals thread comes up....remember to read the rules and guidelines though.
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    I dont know if this is the place to vent but it feels right. Why is it that every entry has to be combine with isomeric turn-arounds? Chow wasn't this way in the past. I dont know why it was implemented. To me it just seems like a lot of extra fluff that isn't necessary and its prohibiting time crunched people from participating.

    I would suggest going back to the way it used to be where you just do the one image with more than 3/4 of the character is showing. This is a fun community activity lets not clog it up with chores.

    I would be interested to know what others thoughts are on this. Maybe everyone else loves it and I'm out to lunch.
    Peace,

    Sean McMurchy - well to be honest, i dont mind doing the character sheet. it doesnt have to look like an illustration, just a quick turnaround in order to show that you have fully thought out your character. it should be the first thing you do before laying out your final image. i mean it is called a character of the week, so the emphasis should be on just that. there is an illustration of the week now though, which is basically like the old chow set up. but if your expecting to do this sort of thing for a living, its a good idea to get used to drawing orthographic views of your character designs.

    There is something I would like to bring up to everyone regarding character design. A lot of people are taking the full illustration route with their characters, which is fine, but not required. Just, do not let the attraction of a nice illustration deter you from the actual challenge of a well thought out character design.

    I was reading through some previous posts on here and didn't have to go far to find something that I think is very important to bring up.

    What am I getting at and how is this relevant? This rule was instated because people were losing the idea of this being a character design challenge, not an illustration challenge. We took it out because we did feel it was too much work and it prevented people from finishing on time. But, we still want to see is a fully developed character, that follows the brief provided. A character sheet is no longer a rule, BUT, the idea of it should be part of your process, or at least thumbnails mapping out your design ideas. Some people have already been doing this and make very successful designs.

    We still want to see the character rendered out nicely, but just remember what the focus is.

    Maybe in the winner's thread the winner's portfolio, website, email etc etc can be advertised too along with their winning piece.

    really satisfied with the way things presently are, the framework is not flawless but rather it invites an abundance of remarks and recommendations over every week by week thought. i think in such manner, inspiring individuals to think on why they are here and what they are doing is commendable objective and additionally making a sharp delineation.

    with respect to who makes it or who dosent, its at the mods caution, yet individuals ought to be permitted to contend why or why not something is incorporated.

    adam_jones: There's a good reason why we don't allow people to contend why they are accepted or not, which is because it over-complicates this challenge. If we did allow this, since communication on the website is so slow, it'd take weeks before polls were resolved. If they follow the rules and make a good piece, there's no reason they should fear their piece getting rejected from the poll.

    Entrants should focus on making good work, not on winning the poll. If people put in the effort towards making portfolio pieces with every entry, then winning or losing is irrelevant. You should make pieces for your own personal enjoyment and in the direction that you want to go while adhering to the criteria of the theme. That's where the fun of these challenges lies.
