    Our topic is....

    Zombies of the FUTURE!

    But first, we need some requirements.

    1.) Medium - Pencil renderings only, or PS/Painter?

    2.) Style - Character concept or rendering with a backgroudn and whatnot?

    3.) Any specs? Is this the zombie of a cyborg? Is it a zombie brought back to life with a mechanical device? Any guidelines whatsoever?

    Get back to me on these ASAP, please.

    *grasping...grasping...*

    OK! Got an idea! Feel free to post some in-progress pics. I don't really think we have to keep it top secret.

    Damn! Sounds bitchin! I'm personally thinking of doing multiple pieces, following the development of my "zombie device," but that could changem depending on how much time I find between now and February.

    after reading through the other challenge posts, i think we need to submit more than just one piece so how about this::

    ZOMBIES of the FUTURE

    Subject: Character design: Zombie of the future -- if we define zombies as we know them to be:

    Dead humans resurrected via arcane arts to serve the resurrector-- we can then translate this into a futuristic setting.

    Style: Open choice

    Media: Traditional media for all except masterpiece (explained below)

    Rules:

    *Character may be any gender, age, size.
    *All pieces must show that the character is both a zombie AND resides in the future
    * 3 pieces:
    ---1: Character design (traditional media) showing a static front view of the character in a neutral pose.
    ---2: A double - page traditional media spread showing NEAT sketches of poses, closeups etc -- these are sketches of ideas and details for the character but they must be neat and well presented.
    ---3: A masterpiece -- a colour render (digital or traditional) of the character (this does not necissarily have to show the character in normal behaviour -- it is simply a finished piece with the character as the subject)

    any objections, just let me know.

    also dementist, you can chat with me on msn messenger if you have it -- form_n_focus@hotmail.com (im almost always on)

    peace

    Lol.... I love all the effort you'r eputting into this, my worthy foe. I've been so busy with school and the holidays that I haven't had a chance to start yet -_- Make sure to post some prelim sketches whenever you can! Can't wait to see your work!

    And nice job defining the guidelines. It really helps. Just one thing, however. We're making ONE character, right? Concentrating on just one zombie?

    This is by far the most effort ive put into a piece -- prolly cos i just finished school. So much time....sigh....wat to do with it all

    I am gonna post my prelims asap but im at work and i dun think the scanner hear is flatbed, its a sheetfeeder which sucks for sketchbooks!

    yes we are doing 1 zomb in 3 pieces. Just the one zomb, ,presented differently.

    btw do you have somewhere i can lok at your work onlinee, ,i sorta blindly jumped into this.

    and when you gonna post YOUR prelims??

    hehe ttys

    Dementist, hast thou succumbed once more to the perilous temptation of grave digging in search of reference material?

    I had someone offer to send me some ref pics of graves, cemetaries, and what she likes to term "corpse worms"! I dont want an unfair advantage, so if you think we should use em ill get em posted in this thread. otherwise i wont use em at all.

    Well, why not make a "reference pool?" Post links to images you think would help. I can't provide many photo refs, but I can hook you up with some great zombie pics by other artists. I have some prelim sketches I did during vlass today, which I'll try to get up. As for my personal work, I dont have a website, so just try searching for my name on conceptart.

    Ok, ok, I'll go scan my prelim shit. Its pretty bad, though :o

    ....93.whatcha? Is that your percentage? Or is it some weird artsy numerical grading scale?

    BTW, I'd love to see those refs of real graveyards you said you could find, if that'd be ok with you.

    Ok, here's my prelim. I did them while I was supposed to be listening to some debates in my Argumentation class.

    Dementist VS Form_n_Focus

    Pardon the overall crappyness. My Zombie will be the Alpha zombie, the one that started it all. The plaguebearer. The bringer of Doom. It will spread the plague that will envelop the world, via those big tubes on its back, and possibly some pores.

    Oh, and why the hell not. Here's another little doodle I did at the same time. They're all characters for my would-be web comic. Guess which one is me, and I'll give you a cookie.

    Well, I'm still cool with it, but we could do Horsemen of the Apocalypse if you'd like. We'd need new criteria, though.

    Four Horsemen it is.

    As for some interesting submissions:

    1 Colour rendered scene including the four horsemen
    1 Weapon design for a horseman
    1 storyboard (10+ frames) including dialogue.

    Horsemen can be any time, any place, but must retain their traditional appearance.

    I dont know anything about em yet so correct me if any of this is wrong (ie the headless thing)

    EDIT: Tho if you did want to stick with zombs i can do that too.../EdiT

    Sorry, Grinn. Game over.

    But....sure, I'll see what i can coem upw ith. I think it'd be better if we just focused on one or two horsemen each. I don't think we could get enough detail into it if we had to do all four.

    This looks like it could be a good one I will be watching, if you're going to do the four horsemen of the apocalypse try here four horsemen it covers the original descriptions quite well.
