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

    ROUND #145 :: SUPERVILLAIN SELF-PORTRAIT
    DESCRIPTION

    Kind of a different round for CHOW this week. Totally open, just a self-portrait of yourself as a supervillain. (I mashed together a couple different ideas from the suggestion thread. )

    Make sure that along with the design, you get across what your powers/super evil weaponry/death glare is!

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

    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);

    Chow 145 :: VOTING :: Supervillain Self-Portrait
    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.

    Why don't you ever see any really intelligent superheroes? Why is genius villainized? These "heroes" always come in with the kicking and the punching and the laser vision. What's with all the physical violence? Heroes! Even a well-trained monkey can do that! Also, what are we doing here, ballet? What is with all the leotards? Yes, we know you have huge muscles. Come on.

    If destroying oppressive, greedy, international mega corporations is bad, then call me evil. I call it liberation. I am freeing the people from their bondage to consumerism by simply removing the lure of so many buy-your-way-to-happiness campaigns. They are the real evil.

    In hindsight, permanently grafting on this bionic arm maybe wasn't the best idea. I've lost some fine motor skills and it's really difficult to bathe. I'll make a note of that for future reference.

    So, here are some of the things that I went through while painting this one. When I read the brief, I immediately came up with most of the text above. My initial sketches got most of the idea down. I knew I wanted a strong upward-looking angle to give the character dominance in the frame. As I went through the rendering, some things changed. I roughed up the hair because it looked like I was wearing a helmet. I got rid of the hanging sleeve; it looked a little sloppy and too mage-like. The eyes were initially colder and more stern but I wanted to make them more dynamic and intense, so I widened them and moved them up to fix the anatomy a bit. This was great fun and I look forward to future challenges

    Yeeeee, this is how i'd like to be as a supervillain.. hes very closely based on myself (obviously) perhapse a little more toned *cough*

    As I like my metal, i've given him a more black metal appearance, with a vampiric presence, leaching power from blood.

    Me as a Supervillain

    I usually have more wips but I jumped right into this one.

    "Have you ever seen your family die in a house fire? Did just stand there watching in horror, helplessly as they burn to the bone and wonder why the fire never touched you or even singed your cloths. Then to have some caped crusader come flying to save you from the burning building. Sure he says he saves people all the time. All heros say that. But were are they when your powers first manifest, where the hell are they when you figure out its your fault that your family is dead. That hero didn't save me, no he just let me live in hell and torment just a little longer. I don't blame myself anymore, I blame the hero. Time for the world to burn. So lets see how the hero can save it now!!!!!!"

    Too bad I first thought off adding feet in phototshop 10 minutes before I had to crash. Oh well, I am satisfied with the outcome.
    Wips and ref.

    After finally ingesting too much herbicide, far more than any human should, NateShaw wilted and died. Only to rise from the grave to stalk from garden to garden laying a path of brown and dried destruction.

    I kill invasive exotic plants in the Everglades for a living.
