    Chow 139 :: VOTING :: Jiao-Long, Velociraptor

    FINALS ONLY
    -=ROUND 139=-
    -=JIAO-LONG, VELOCIRAPTOR=-

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

    NOT SURE ABOUT THE GUIDELINES? CLICK HERE!
    -------------------

    ROUND #139 :: JIAO-LONG, VELOCIRAPTOR
    DESCRIPTION

    Jiao-Long is no ordinary pet. Found deep in the jungles of a far off land, the all-powerful Emperor had the great beast brought to the Forbidden City as both a prize for China, and as a symbol of greatness to his people.

    Jiao-Long is a velociraptor, a vicious predator made half-tame by numerous handlers and a life-time of pampering. He is the last of his kind - a bizarre accident - somehow millions of years from where science expected him to be. He is fed only the freshest food, and the rarest - baboons, tigers, elephant, brought from all over the world. He has presents lavished upon him both by the Emperor himself, as well as all who wish to please the emperor. Though he has been known to kill handlers when he is displeased, he shows a remarkable amount of intelligence and cunning, and the Emperor lists him among his 'most cherished advisers'. Whether this is true, remains to be seen.

    He is, however, revered at almost an iconic status - seen as being kin to the dragons of legend and the ultimate symbol of the Ming Dynasty's Power.


    Notes on this round:

    - A velociraptor
    - Ancient China (Think Ming Dynasty, but feel free to fiddle with this as much as you want)
    - This is NOT a COW - this is a CHOW. Make sure he has personality!

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

    ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
    1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
    2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
    3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE?

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

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);


    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.

    Halli Hallo Everyone.

    It was alot of fun designing this CHOW.
    Dont like the fact that the raptor more and more turns out to be a chicken, so I wanted to keep the base of him a little bit more old school reptilian.
    The chicken\turkey part I left for his colour Theme and added some feathers to his clothes so he reminds more of a bird.
    The funny thing about this chow for me was, that the appearence of a turkey always has something arrogant.
    The movement his Headgestures, and his funny little Redskin hanging from his peak...






    have a nice rest-weekend everyone.

    Original woodcut about Jiao Long! Rare piece.
    This style is in fact the closest to what I used to study, before trying to venture into digipainting. Had fun with it.

    The Song of Jiao-Long

    It is rumored that the emperor would consult Jiao Long on matters concerning his empire with simple yes, and no questions.. The "dragon" was then taken by his servants to stroll thru the royal gardens to allow him to ponder the problem. Jiao-Long was endowed with a bellowing voice, both terrifying and fantastic. It is said, that within three days time from the question, Jiao-Long would reply in an inequivocable manner. If the emperor heard Jiao-Long's song in the hour of the Dragon, he knew it meant an affirmative reply, however, if the "dragon's" song was heard in the hour of the rooster, it meant a negative one.
    Pictured here with one of "The eight Dragon Masters", his personal servants and trainers, Jiao-Long sings to the valley below.

    Sorry I didn't have time to color the piece. Hope it's ok like this.

    For whom the bells toll!

    Aaargh!, well I messed that up!
    Forgot to save it full before I made it into a (150dpi) jpg image - now it's all I have
    (luckily I have earlier work to take WIP from)

    - Since he can't speak he communicates with bells - each bell has a different word on it - eat, death, life etc.
    Sadly The Emperor usually asks about a prisoners fate, it's sealed with the ring of a bell!

    Well I wasn't sure if I was going to do this one or not, and now I'm not really sure I followed the true spirit of the brief. Still even if this doesn't make it to the voting I thought I would post it anyway.

    Ok so not exactly WIPs but I couldn't just leave the story there.

    I know that Jiao-Long is supposed to be a barely tame predator, but in my defense even bears, and lions and such like to play every once in awhile.

    And for a predator who sees humans as potential meals maybe a pug would be just a neat friend? ok... so yeah probably not but ah well.

    Now for those WIPs

    Here's my entry!

    I like the idea of a raptor being used as a domesticated animal, he has a belled collar around his neck so when he's tromping through the hallways the service staff know to make themselves scarce.

    Only one cut today:

    kelly: Thanks for your hard work and support! However, your image did not make the 3/4's rule, which states that you need to see at least 3/4's of the character, so I didn't take it to poll today. Sorry!

    Doh! I Flunked out! Great round otherwise guys! I voted for Venger, Clochete and Kostja.
    Venger: I loved that guy! I thought he was really well done, his bling fit him really nicely and I really liked the idea of having him on a perch like that, maybe in the corner of the emporers court, watching everything and being ready to offer his sage advice!! he's got real cunning behind those eye!
    Clochete: Great style, nailed the ancient chinese scroll while still adding alot of your own twist not just carbon copying a style, impressive!
    Kostja: I really liked his face Kostja, really well done, his hat really worked as well, I like the idea. That being said I thought the background was pretty rushed along with his robe, I think it detracts from the character, I would have prefered him even on a blank background so you could concentrate on his body a bit more, just to bring it up to the good standard that the face is at.
    Cheers guys!

    Voted for MarkDN for a raptor with real personality, and for Venger for outstanding design and rendering. Well done. This was a really tough CHOW.

    Artofinca - I really love the style you used and worked on this. Plus i feel like the character actually feels alive.

    Auh, I finished my piece right now but the poll was already up..

    nice jobs on the velociraptors!

    Moski i guess your raptor is the only one that seems not to fit the real structure of it, it seems more like a camel or so.. but i love the paint job and his beard
