    So it looks like our first ideas are going to be heading towards either 1930s or 18th Century France... not for sure which, if either, but here's some references to get the juices flowing.

    First some images from 18th Century France:
    Team Chow II: Team Supreme

    Also, here is a blog I stumbled upon devoted entirely to 18th Century French costumes. There's a ton of inspiring stuff on there. Pretty lucky find if I may say so.

    Here are some images set in the 1930s.

    Here are the offical rules, just so we can easily keep them in mind when in this thread:

    1. Teams of two MUST create at least 4 portraits, teams of three or four need 6 and teams of five need 8. You are perfectly welcome to create more images that the requirement if you feel your team is up to it.
    2. You must take a random selection of the choices below. Please don't do 4 elven fighters, or only orcs, for example. Please take a randomized selection. If you would prefer me to give your team a specific assignment, I will generate the selection for you. If I see teams doing more select parties, then I will request you to change to something more random.
    3. You must follow the format provided. See it below, please!
    4. You must do a LIGHT and a DARK version for each character, please! This means that for each character you need two portraits.
    5. You must submit a paragraph about each character. Do a short write up for each character you create. I want to see some interesting, stereotype-breaking stuff here, folks!

    PLEASE SELECT ONE OF EACH CATEGORY FOR EACH CHARACTER.

    Gender: Male / Female

    Race: Human / Elf / Half-Elf / Dwarf / Orc - (and anything else you can think of!)

    Class: Fighter (Barbarians, Knights, Dark Knights, Brawlers, etc) / Thief (Assasins, Rogues, etc)/ Spell Caster (Wizards, Sorcerers, Druids, etc) / Healer (Priest, Cleric, White Mage, Medic, etc) - (feel free to make up something for this, too)

    Alignment: Good / Evil (please do both for each character)

    YES, THESE LOOK LIKE STEREOTYPES. IT IS YOUR JOB TO BREAK THEM. I want to see some really interesting, kick ass stuff!
    This means we need to create 3 characters, and make two full bodied portraits for each, one good and one evil. We are supposed to stay close to High Fantasy, but a little genre blurring is allowed. I think there are definitely some things from 18th Century France that could be incorperated. I don't think I've ever seen orcs/elves/dwarves in French costumes, so that would be a good way to seperate ourselves from the crowd. 1930s would be a lot more dificult, but if there are any ideas, post' em.

    I was just thinking about whether it would be better to make a story, palette, etc. first or to just start drawing characters, and I think I agree DeeLock, for this it'd probably be best to just start drawing and see what comes up. Hopefully we'll find things in our drawings that will inspire a story and mood and such.

    Although, since most of these references depict people with high social status, it'd probably be a good idea to focus our characters in that area, although having a lower status character would add some good variety (maybe that rogue female).

    Anyways, time to get to work.

    Awesome, good work!

    I think it'd be cool if that rogue female you were talking about wore some kind of cool mask like those you found, especially the feather one. :]

    Team Thundercats is doing 18th Century France too.

    What's weird is that they were also talking about doing 1930's before the brief came out

    Oh well, that's okay. I imagine we'll both end up with something pretty different anyways.
