    We have decided on Fantasy Creature.

    Can be traditional media and/or digital color, design what you would look like as a fantasy creature ie what your personality would translate into creature form.

    Capt.Harlock Vs. OLSEN

    Character and creature design.

    The year is 1150 in a parallel universe where insects rule the earth. The world shares the exact same history, the same religions and so on as ours, the only difference is that all the people and all the animals are insects, although the fact that people are insects should show in their cultural symbols and tools.

    The task is to design a fully armored crusading knight, riding his best warbug.

    A warbug is the insect version of a warhorse, and the crusading knight must of course not be human, since everything is insect. The armour can either be a natural part of the character, handmade plate, a combination, or whatever we want. The character must however be mounted on the warbug, ready to kick ass in the name of the one true God.

    Any and all medias allowed, greyscale or color. Background is optional. No taglines or descriptive written text is allowed in the final images or posts.

    Dez vs BoBo_the_seal

    character Illustration

    beauty and beast theme, digital, fantasy (non-futuristic). The beauty and beast must be worked into the same composition. The beauty must look as if she controls the beast in some manner. Pencil sketches can be used to start off the design.

    metaphysiks vs. metalwinds

    We have decided to do a fantasy/ future them where we must design at least one monster interacting ( engaging in battle for example ) with at least one humanesque character.
    The characters must be in an environment and the final piece must be painted completely. the program used is up to the contestant.

    thats about it, now to get to work on it.

    Jaku vs. Mcotie

    Creature based.
    Mythological creature created by human in the near (or far) future. It can be geneticaly created (jurasic park type) or mechanicaly created (animatronic or something like that).
    It must look real and full of life.
    It can´t look like a magical creature for example, like a balrog (made of fire) but it can spit fire because it´s technicaly posible to do it.
    No limitations on the media.
    At least one full rendered picture must be done.

    Exclamation Wizard of KOZ Vs. Nick Reynolds

    It's a battle of Buds. East Coast Vs. West Coast. Fo’ shizlle mi nizzle


    Create a World based off of this description:

    "It is world unimaginably large and vastly uncharted full of creatures both wondrous and monstrous. On the only "civilized" and explored continent, a Circle of 8 "rulers" keep the population firmly under control. Lest they discover the secret that they have feared since time began.

    -We each have 3 sketch pages of 8.5x11 to convey the world. Depict the elements you feel are the most important to represent your world.

    -These pages don't have to be "physical" sketch pages; they can be scanned in and pieced together in Photoshop. The deal is you can't use more space than 8.5x11.

    -Taking the elements from the sketch pages you must then create a color digital painting of the most important elements of the sketch pages. Is it the hero, is it the environments, or is it the creatures that best depict your world...maybe all of the above.

    -The nature behind this concept is to fully develop an idea; it is broad enough to allow enough creativity without getting to out of control. Since we are deciding what goes into the concept we can put what we feel belongs there, as little or as much as we like.

    -The sketch pages can contain as little or as much info as we like. It can include small 1-5 line written notes next to the elements on the page.

    -The color concept/Illustration can be any size, any format (widescreen, vertical, poster etc.), and any medium.

    -The sketches pages can only be pencil, colored pencil, marker, and Ink (Coro Sytle...WoRD).

    -Any genre, any time setting
