    I just recently discovered these activities, and wished I knew about them sooner. I really enjoyed looking at one of the last contests for CHOW of the demon queen Rangda. I just finished an illustration that is similar in nature. I made my version of Hanuman the monkey god. I might stand corrected but I'm almost sure that the Rangda like my character might be part of the Ramayana from India or Ramakien from south east asia same story different versions.

    Anyway, I think that recreating characters from mythology would always be great. How about the recreation of the Norse god Loki of what he truely might look like? Or some Japanese demons or gods?

    I like this idea as well, and hopefully it would be better to choose one of 4 or all 4 if anyone is fast enough. I tend to try and focus on one thing at a time. But cudos to you, I like that idea.

    They don't need to be on horses; they can drive cars, or ride motorcycles, or cyber-horses.

    Originally it's Conquest, War, Famine and Death, but Conquest has been replaced many times but Pestilence/Plague/Pollution.

    The four horsemen was the topic for a 3 week CHoW over the christmas period in 2010. ^_^

    The thread can be found: HERE and the finals thread with the finished images can be found: HERE

    The winner for that round was: Jager ^_^

    The Surgeon: She/He's the last thing you see before you black out, but is this operation medically necessary? What is that crazy instrument in their hand? Can be in any time period but must be SF or Horror inspired.

    Volcano Goddess: Pele is the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, dance, and volcanoes. Must be majestic, powerful and explosive!

    Frost Giant: The Norse Frost Giants (jötunn) were the opposition to the Norse Gods, causing trouble and making war, but sometime intermarrying and having children. Can be ready for war or romance!

    As spring is on the way how about:

    Easter: As in the Pagan Goddess Eostre, also thought it might be fun to incorporate different cultures imagery of Springtime.

    Example:

    Yasuke

    Yasuke was an African servant to an Italian Jesuit who came to Japan in the 1500s. There he met and joined the forces of Oda Nobunaga, who thought very highly of him. Some thought Nobunaga would make him a lord. He is said to have been over 6 feet tall, making him a giant compared to most Japanese people of the day. Little else is known about him, but with this in mind, how do you think Yasuke would have lived and looked? Feel free to use your imagination; you can design him as a warrior, or in other traditional clothes of the period.

    Yasuke background information:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasuke

    Sengoku Period (Yasuke would have arrived in Japan around the end of it):

    Reformed Necromancer

    This man/woman once dabbled in the dark arts, learning to raise the dead and control untold horrors from the grave. However, through a heart-warming series of events, he/she came to understand the value of life and gave up the ways of the dead, now living life as a normal person.

    Despite their new-found love of life and respect for humanity, years of studying the ways of Necromancy took their toll on this character. Try to show both their former life and their new life in the modern, everyday world.

    The supreme admiral

    master of his ship, ruler of his fleet, legend to his people, scourge of his enemies.
    The admiral is a vaunted figure surrounded by ceremony, pomp and circumstance.

    historical, modern, sci-fi, fantasy, human, alien, orc, space, water, air, (desert?) whatever floats your boat.

    dunno if this has been suggested or not, but i was on facebook the other day and my friend tagged me in his update... you're supposed to look at your profile, and on the left sidebar it shows a random selection of your friends, you're supposed to take the top 5 people there and thats the team of survivors you'll have during the zombie apocalypse.
    so my friend Ian and I ended up having eachother on our lists, so we're doing zombie apocalypse character designs of our friends.

    so for here, instead of doing 6 character designs we can just do one: a self portrait.
    a zombie apocalypse survivor self portrait.

    your goals would be:
    -resemblence
    -your weapons and supplies would have to represent you somehow. so if you're a junkie for steampunk stuff you'd probably dress in that style all the time cause it wouldn't be weird to society right? so fuck it. wear what you want, but those clothes must be a representation of you and your personality. if you're a musician, try turning your musical instrument into a zombie killing device so that it has a dual purpose.

    anyway, theres my idea.

    I have a couple of ideas for the character of the week. No.1 a passive character, think 'Bones' from the TV series, a non aggressive, non action character, paramount to the storyt but has no weapons mearly a brain, someone who is a hero because of their mind, think scientist, chemist, doctor, etc.

    No.2 is a zombie one, sorry 'I just love zombies'. Think about where you work and who you work with, what would happen to them if the zombie virus struck while you were at work. Take a photo of someone you work with, consider what they do, who they are and turn them into a Zombie. Consider that beautiful receptionist that greets people so professionally - now imagine her or him as a zombie. Could be fun.

    We had the Four Horsemen a few months ago, there's something about apocalyptic figures that seems to inspire the artists here well.

    So closely following that, how about Babylon the Great?

    (Better known by another name beginning 'Who' ending 're' but apparently that word is censored here.)

    17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
    17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
    17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
    17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sat.
    17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
    17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
    17:12 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
    17:15 And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the sat, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
    Since we haven't encountered the apocalypse yet, she could essentially be anybody in any time period. Illuminati-based conspiracy theories have singled out notable pop musicians as possibly being her in recent years, particularly ones who have flirted with religious imagery or symbolism in their work - Madonna, Britney Spears and most recently Lady Gaga. (Suggesting she could be beautiful and popular rather than blatantly repellent.) The beast she appears with could also make for some interesting interpretations.
