    Angry The Gurren Brigade Team ChoW Sketchbook! Who the hell do you think we are?!

    Hello boys and girls! This is the official sketchbook thread for the Gurren Brigade, in this month's TEAM CHOW event. We're excited, you're excited, and this art coming out of this event is gonna be hooooooot fire.

    Please enjoy our contribution to what I hope will become a concept art regular event. Reporting in for team Gurren are myself, team leader Lalilulelo, Mr. Visions (and you better call him mister), the illustrious and elegant Naomiful, and the quiet but cunning, mastermind metal-head Burtzum!

    I'll have scans up shortly out of my own, physical, pencil and paper sketchbook. My other comrades will be jumping in shortly.
    IT'S ERUPTING!

    The Protector I see as a fat ugly older woman. Unkempt frizzy hair tied back and braided behind her to keep it out of the way. Gave her horseshoe crab armguard weapon thing. The thing on her belly is also a horseshoe crab head. Keeps her flab from flapping all over the place. haha. crab girdle.

    The Rabble Rouser I see as ornately dressed/extravagant. Bull fighters come to mind. I seriously like the idea of him missing a hand as we discussed last night. Punishment for stealing or cheating. I would prefer his hand to be a gauntlet that is useless/never moves. Its just there to make him appear less weird/handicapped. He has it out of vanity. I'm not too into the whole cyborg/mechanical arm idea we were tossing around last night, too high tech in my opinion. Once we introduce mechanical things like that, it allows for things like machine guns, which renders blades, armor, and crustacean shells useless. I liked the idea of him having a sneaky little monkey-like thief pet though, his pet would make up for his lost hand in a way.



    The Tech I see as a scrawny 18 year old girl. I think my sketch here is too generic. Lame. I like the short messy greasy hair and grease/soot marks all over her though. Also like the idea of her being a sort of sniper with a bolt action rifle she made herself. Maybe the tech is the only character with a gun? Bolt action, load one bullet at a time, slow, and completely baffles/amazes everyone who sees her use it.



    The Shadow... ummm I drew him with a crab-trenchcoat thing. This was before all the talk about making him literally a nebulous shadow creature. Crab carapace has two legs still attached that are attachable to arms to use as weapons. Two leg segments up top function as shoulder pads... cause y'know, hes like... a shoulder model and needs to keep his smooth creamy shoulders protected.




    btw, sorry scanner is being weird

    Crab back might work well with the Protector also, if it becomes unusable for Shadow. Though, the "horns" of crab shell seem to work well for darker characters.

    Hero sketch... I'm also planning a 'dark side' sketch. Her mental lapse has a real effect on her appearance, I'm thinking.

    Here's my versions of the Protector and Hero: I really like Burt's angle on protector and took it for a stroll -

    Note: I need to put more sea shells in the dream catcher, opr perhaps have it full of them and that's it.

    To save time, I'm just going to type the description here:

    Sage: a napolean-esque cleric from the tribe of ________, he's skilled in the magical arts, using the orbs that I will refer to as orbs a malleable objects, creating forms of transport to weapons when needed. Being short, he wears the shoes Kevin created to compensate his height diference so he isn't looked down upon. He also wears an ornate shell as a headdress, with an encrested gem that seems to be the source of his powers -
