    Seeing as the whole undersea utopia theme is going on i think we should do more themed stuff like that like loads of different planet concepts that span across chow, cow, eow & Idw could eventually build up an entire universe.
    The CA Universe, kinda has a ring to it don't you think?

    Good idea?
    I love that idea

    I quite like the current "John Carter of Mars" topic - any chance we can get a Princess Dejah Thoris or Tars Tarkas follow up?

    I think this is a great idea. It would be really interesting to see everyone's ideas and to come up with some of your own.

    It depends of the jewelry, and it depends of how you do it. We are talking of an alien woman using ornaments of an alien culture.
    I think the idea is fantastic, we'll just need some research before doing it.

    She's basically just a red human. Her character and personality, from what I got from wikipedia, is undeveloped, uninteresting, and cliche. The contest will turn into a boring anatomy showcase. "Alien" in this case will be nothing more than a few dots on her face, or elf ears, or other nondescript bumps on her face, basically a StarTrek alien. It'll turn into a rendering contest.

    I agree with your point to an extent, but the object of ChOW is a personal interpretation. If you're redesigning a character you can take liberties with it. A lot of the John Carter's were 'as the book' but there was no restriction to do so if that was your prerogative. That being said, Princess Dejah is one of countless options! I think Allan Quatermain would be fun! We need more pith helmets round here!

    CHOW IDEA: Superfriends Redux

    I'm really liking what I'm seeing on this this weeks topic. I was thinking that the Superfriends, being as lame as they are, would pose an interesting challenge.

    The idea would be to reinvent the wonder twins, apache chief, samurai, black bolt, or marvin and his dog. Make them bad ass contemporary characters. We could even expand on this to include any of the other late 70's early 80's saturday morning cartoon super heroes (space ghost, thundarr the barbarian, bird man, etc.) It's only a matter of time before someone 'reimagines' these characters anyway. Everything old is new again

    Anthony Fremont, the reality warping 3-year old mutant as featured in the Twilight Zone Episode "It's a Good Life", based off the short story of the same name, also remade in "Twilight Zone: The Movie", parodied in that one "Simpson's Treehouse of Horror" episode.

    "Anthony Fremont is a three-year-old child with near-godlike powers: transform other people or objects into anything he wishes, think new things into being, teleport himself and others where he wishes, read the minds of people and animals and even revive the dead, though he only tried this once. He may not be wholly human in appearance—hints in the story mention his "odd shadow" and "bright, wet, purple gaze;" the obstetrician at his birth was said to have "screamed and dropped him and tried to kill him;" and the other children are told that Anthony is a "nice goblin" but they must never go near him."

    link to the short story: http://nickelkid.net/docs/greats/its_a_good_life.html

    wikipedia plot summary: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It%27s_a_Good_Life

    With 2008 Olympics been held in China we've had a resurgence of 'Journey to the West', or 'Monkey' ('Monkey magic')

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=132103
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/blast/art/olymp...ey_movie.shtml
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_(TV_series)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Wukong

    Rather than re-interpreting Monkey, Pigsy, Sandy, and Tripitaka (though you could if you want I suppose) how about thinking up opponents for them.

    I think everything had a demon (water demon, tiger spirit demon, etc)

    Might be fun.

    Im thinking 80's action cartoon Character re-invention. Take one or two characters from He-man, Thundercats, Bravestar, Bio-nic 6, Dino-riders etc etc and do your own take on it? I am pretty new here so i can imagine this has possibly been done already but hey im putting it out there.

    ergh..kinda hurt me when i have to think how to draw something not familiar...

    story like 'journey to the west' maybe quite familiar to u guys but its boring...

    so, how about u guys try stuff from my side...like...hanuman (india), barong (indonesia), rakhsasa (indonesia), raja siung (malaysia), hang tuah (malaysia)..errr just to name some of them..

    this could be fun and hard since obviously different world! really different...

    A representation of:
    Ash from the army of darkness series [reference link ]

    Darkman [reference link ]

    The re-animator [reference link]

    Judge Dredd [reference link]

    South park boys [reference link]

    Venture Bros Character's [reference link]

    space ghost [reference link]

    the saint the hero from the 60's shows with the same name in this one you can do a sex change two [reference link]

    Super hero self-portrait ... represent your self as a super hero ... don't modify your current body constitution (muscle mass , breast implants ...) . The superhero has to be original ... side story required oh and powers . This should be fun!

    and my favorite ...

    Eric Powell's Goon [reference link] ... I was thinking of a representation different from that of Eric Powell's... And you could represent Franky besides him also if you want or any of the other main characters (The Zombie Priest, Buzzard, Labrazio, Dr. Hieronymous Alloy) but Goon has to be in it .

    What with the questionable discovery of a Bigfoot body in Georgia and the Palo Alto press conference circus that followed, how about...

    Bigfoot Hunter?

    Not necessarily someone who's out to shoot one, but someone who has been searching for one for years. The types of guys who were interviewed on programs like In Search Of... or other 1970's documentaries about cryptozology, the Loch Ness Monster, Yetis, and such like. Intrepid explorers and scientists (or pseudo-scientists) on a quest for that elusive North American Ape...and who were probably hoaxed by some backwoods yokels wearing carved wooden faux feet on their boots...

    The Vengeful Bride
    We've seen her wreak havoc on those who have wronged her in Kill Bill, Lady Vengeance, and Lady Snowblood. Scorned by the misdeeds done to her, the Vengeful Bride undertakes extreme and often brutal means to exact her revenge.

    Or alternatively, The Yūrei, or Japanese Ghost. Normally depicted as women with long hair in Kabuki and Japanese opera. In this topic, you should develop your own specific type of Japanese ghost and try to imply through your concept how and why the ghost haunts this world. Pay attention to the different types of Japanese ghosts. Do your research!

    Archangel Makeover!
    So we've seen the effigies of archangels looking the same throughout the ages, sporting the same ol Roman gear that they've been wearing for centuries. It's time to give these poor unfashionable angels an update into the fashion of modern times! IE. Archangel Michael is the patron of soldiers, he could be drawn with soldier's gear on. OR you can just have fun dressing them pretty and modern, instead of going the symbolic route.

    Sorry if these have been suggested before, but thought they might be fun
