    FINALS ONLY
    -=ROUND 141=-
    -=THE GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS=-

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

    ROUND #141 :: GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS
    DESCRIPTION

    This is a two-week Chow for the holidays! Because you have some extra time, you are asked to do three characters this year. For those of you familiar with Dicken's the Christmas Carol, you'll recognize all three: The Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

    Please feel free to go wild with these designs - you don't need to stay exactly true to the description in the novel, just to the spirit! There have been plenty awesome designs of these characters over the years, so take a look for some inspiration!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_of_Christmas_Past
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_of_Christmas_Present
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_o...as_Yet_to_Come

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Christmas_Carol
    ------------

    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.

    I handled the three ghosts separately. I hope that's OK.

    Heres mine...
    I did some changes. The death looking ghost is the ghost of the past(dead). The ghost of the future is the techy, inhuman looking one that needs a respirator. The fat one is the ghost of the present(blind and gluttonous).

    Angry

    I had epic plans for this with tons of bows, ribbons, candles, ornaments and holly.

    But I pinched a nerve in my neck yesterday and can barely sit, let alone draw. All I had finished was some of the skin/dresses. So I just scribbled in whatever I could to make it looked "finished".

    The hair, bows, socks/feet, and antlers all look like unfinished CRAP. Please do not look at them. And the faces don't match. I'm so sorry, but I truly cannot work another minute on this.

    I am finally done, this piece took forever. I managed to get everything finished in 4 days. I started really late. This is my version of Dickens Christmas story, Party Cabo Style. There were gonna be beer cans and what not strewn about the ground but I didn't have enough time to put them in. Hope you all enjoy. I'll try and get the WIPS up later.

    Poll is up!

    A few cuts today.

    Quality Check/Rough/Unfinished Work

    duckyfeets1: Really rushed and doesn't read too well because of all the glittery stuff. My personal suggestion would be to adjust the composition a bit - bring the canvas down lower so that they're feet aren't just randomly cut off - straighten out the couch, and adjust the two figures so that they're better grounded on it, and try to unify the colour and the lighting.

    vaughany_boy: Firstly, please post wips. This isn't why you were cut, however. Your piece isn't finished - especially the background looks really rough and rushed. Spend a little more time in making the piece more coherent and readable.

    danielablanco: Traditional methods are always welcome here in Chow, even when re coloured, but this particular piece really feels too rough to take to poll. My suggestion would be to take out the crosshatching from the background all together, and clean up the hatching on the characters. Crosshatching can look really, really awesome when done carefully, but if it's even just a little bit too sloppy then it just ends up looking rough and messy.

    r.mccabe: Unfinished and rough. The Future Spirit is quite, quite difficult to read with my monitor - you might want to try a few different monitors when working so dark just to make sure that everyone viewing the poll will be able to read it properly.


    Did not cut but could have:

    Mock: You didn't link your wips. Lucky for you I saw them in the thread several times, but next time please either post them with your image, or post links to them in the thread.

    IKII: Again, no wips, but I saw them in the thread.

    Southern: Same goes for you. Since this round is a small one, I'm letting you guys off the hook, but in a larger round this would get you cut.

    Tommoy, Jeremy Hoffman, spaztastic: Please remember to save your filename properly!

    MEMPER: Wips...? I can't recall if I saw any in the thread, but I'll let it pass this week. Please, next time remember to include them.

    Scorge: Very intense looking image. I love Past and Future and the lighting!

    Shannanigan: Cute scene and nice warm lighting. I could totally see this as a cartoon or children's book.

    Duckyfeets: I like where you were going with yours. I think a little more time on it would have really made a big difference. Especially the bg.

    Crowsrock: Each of those is huge! Must have taken forever. I especially like the kids with the Present Ghost.

    Pixeltuner: You already know how much I like this. Especially the Future gost. Great job!

    Funkdafide: Love the dramatic ligthing. It's perfect for the image.

    Tommoy: Very expresive technique and neat colors. A little rough, but I like those types of pictures.

    Mock: Another one I was really liking from the beginning. Such nice colors and a great bg!

    MJ: Classy. I am impressed you had time to do each ghost separately. And your colors are warm and Christmassy. Really nice.

    PuppyKitten: Learn to draw, retard. Anatomy fail.

    IIKII:Talk about colorful! Whoa. Very bold and interesting. I'm jealous that you're so brave with color!

    Southern: Totally gorgeous. You have a neat way of using textures!

    Vaughany boy: Love the little kids. I also like how you did three whole scenes. Must have taken forever.

    Danielablanco: I don't know if it was on purpose, but all your ghosts look really creepy. In a good way though.

    Jeremy Hoffman: Hilarious. Future looks AWESOME.

    r. mccabe: I like the painterly style. I wish present and future were both defined a bit more though. Especially future.

    MEMPER: Love the colors and technique. Past and Present look really great to me.

    Spaz: Way to rock it. You already know how cool this is. You totally got my vote. Have you ever been to advanced anime? The drawing in your avatar looks familiar.

    Voted for Jeremy. Would've voted for PuppyKitten based on technical quality but I think there's no real visual distinction between the ghosts: sorry Puppy

    Voted for Jeremy, Puppy, and Pixeltuner. I agree that there wasn't a lot of distinction between the ghosts in Puppy's, but the technical skill and overall image quality are fantastic. I couldn't help myself. =P

    Aw, that's okay.

    I didn't get to add the details that might have made a difference. They are supposed to be separated by age and outfit. Future has biggest antlers, longest hair, longest dress, longest socks, and most lace. Past has the least of all these things.

    I am aware that it's a pretty darn subtle difference. I'll try to be better about that next time

    Aww puppykitten I loved yours, it got my vote. So did pixelturner, Southern, Mock, Shannanigan, and Jeremy Hoffman. All the others are really good, but those are the ones that caught my attention the most. So different and lively. everybody did a great Job.

    Puppykitten: I have no clue what this advanced anime you speak of is, is it a site or just advanced art(I am special I know...heheheh by that I am tarded).
    The one thing I wish I could have done for my pic is close ups on the faces, feet and hands... I spent forever on those blasted things and the resize does them no justice. ah well.

    Puppykitten: I have no clue what this advanced anime you speak of is, is it a site or just advanced art(I am special I know...heheheh by that I am tarded).

    It's a website I used to go to when I was really into anime about five or six years ago. Your avatar looked like a drawing I remember seeing there.

    And don't worry, those beautiful feet look great, even at the smaller size. Though I wouldn't mind a close up as well, I could never get them to look that nice.

    'Cuz life is full of your regrets, and I should be one...
