    Okay guys and gals! Here's my thoughts: Why don't we all brainstorm our own topic/theme/moodboard and post them up here! Then we can vote on which is the best or mix and match as we like. :]

    Also, I think it would be a good idea to start thinking about palettes right away, so maybe also think of a colour palette when presenting your mood board?

    Awesome, I'm gonna get started on mine right away! Weee! This is going to be so much fun, guys!

    Sounds good, I guess it's better to be at least a little organized ;D

    Well, I'll be off thinking then... maybe writing down some themes/topics, gathering reference-material and getting one or another (mood)sketch done

    Oh yeah, nearly forgot...

    *assumes formal posture*
    I look forward to working with you!

    Okay! Here's my first pass at it...

    I'm thinking MEDIEVAL BATTLE ANGELS or something similar

    Attachment 733795

    It it isn't obvious, I'm thinking really desaturated blue with some really saturated/warm browns, oranges, reds and deep shadows!

    Just stopping by for a quick comment/feedback:
    I really like the angel-themed thing, but how we give it a "futuristic" twist? (I know this is done far too often... ;D)

    But well, what I had in mind:

    Team Chow II :: Tall, Grande and Venti
    (Copyrights go to BROM)

    or:

    Team Chow II :: Tall, Grande and Venti

    Or even something like this, although it's really getting awayfrom the typical biblical angel "look":

    If I understood it correctly I want to suggest we take these guys as an example for how we should work together. I really think their teamwork was very good and, as far as I know, they also were the first to finish^^
    Therefore I also suggest that we find a way to communicate other than CA, for example by using Skype or IRC-Channels (just as some examples)... I mean, communication and staying in touch with each other is like the most important thing in teamwork, isn't it? ;D

    Sorry for the late reply guys!

    Yes, Sunroamer, I agree! Do you use MSN? I have yoitisi and dished on it already and that's an easy enough place to start. :] If you want to add me, it's my screen name (at) gmail . com!

    Wooooo! Sorry for jumping in here late, am not at home and don't press F5 half as often because of that

    Anyway, I'll be back home the 6th, and we'll have to wait for the final announcement now before we start doing anything else I think.

    My MSN is yohetismij [at] hotmail [dot] com, feel free to add me. Should be lots of fun this one

    Yeeeeah, that's the disadvantage of having me on the team. I already know everything we have to do and can't tell you! So i feel like i'm cheating if I go too far ahead with you guys.

    Well the topic will be up tomorrow, so everyone will be on even footing then. :]

    Hmm, well, I don't have MSN but only IRC, ICQ and Skype^^
    (although I guess it can't really hurt getting myself a msn-account...)

    And sorry I didn't post any suggestions for the theme/moodboard... everything I thought of didn't sound too interesting :/ (stereotypical stuff like Sci-Fi themes and so on...)
    Although... how about getting ourselves "surreal world" as a topic? Hmm... guess the themes not too great for Character-Design, though (it's a lot better for landscapes, or rather, complete illustrations)

    So, still nothing from me :<

    E:
    "Voodoo", maybe?
    Leaves a lot of space for disturbing stuff () mixed with a lot of african/afroamerican culture.

    Oh HAI GAIS!

    skype sounds good too, or msn. just lemme know which one were all gonna talk on. Also any idea of like certain times we can communicate at the same time?

    anyways i really like the idea of desaturated/subtle blues with stronger warms. Ive been looking at NC Wyeths stuff and (ive got a book on him from the library, ill try to scan things sometime) his western work in particular has some nice color work we could probably use.

    Also , we can probably brainstorm some settings as well. Could be like battle angels + desert + voodoo! hahaha Itd be cool if we like reaally integrated our characters in certain environments,cause theres tons of fun stuff you can do with costume based on that

    Yeah, um, guys, like i said in the main thread, don't look too much into theme this time...

    The new brief is actually genre-specific. a_a sorry!

    but i promise it will be awesome!

    I've got skype as well, under the same email address, so. :]

    Yeh lets wait until the actual round is announced before we jump into anything.

    I'm also on Skype, look for a Guido Kuip in the Netherlands. Please put a note with your contacts that it is for ChOW though, I don't usually add people to my Skype.

    Okay!

    Round is up so I no longer have to be so secretive about it.

    So! High fantasy.

    I'd like to throw in a lot of different cultural references for this, though. Actually give EACH race a different culture... I don't see why if there are multiple races they should all wear european stye armour, for example. :]

    I'd really like to do a character from an "angel" style race, keeping in what we were talking about before... I already have a brief running around in my head! I will write it up soon. :]

    So because there are four of us, we have to do at least 3 characters, with 6 portraits.

    I think we can push ourselves and do 4 characters with 8 portraits, what do you guys think? That's two portraits each. Either we can do the good/evil of one character, or mix and match and do each other's characters. :]


    As for team work, I'm thinking that we should work individually, but with heavy wip crits and paintovers for eachother, and really push ourselves to the best of what we can do!

    I was thinking that a unified colour palette will go a long way in helping us work as a team and present our work in a unified fashion... I'm still interested in doing the saturated warms, desaturated cools as one palette... but maybe for the 'other' side we could flip that palette? saturated cools with desaturated warms? What do you guys think? :]


    Also, we should arrange a meeting time... This weekend looks a little crazy for me so I'd prefer to speak here (as well as monday because it's a holiday) but I'm free Tuesday to have a meeting, during the day (my evening is booked). Thoughts?
