Team CHOW II: Team Daemonic Squirrels
Hey there you fine folks, this thread is here to catalogue the progress of:
Rabbi Satan (Me),
We're a little underwhelming compared to some of the mighty giants that are doing this Team CHOW. But our goal is to improve and push our current artistic limits.
Anyway, here's the ground rules from daestwen:
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!
As suggested by looking at another thread, lets post some pictures costumes or stuff that you think is interesting or awesome. And also a collage of imaages for establishing a consistant colour pallete for our creations.
Since there's 3 of us, that's 6 portraits, and also light vs dark. Which would run up to 12. So we've got to work hard!
*Brings out whip* Get Crackin'!

Here's a genre breaker - High Tech Elven Vikings.
MUTHA FUGGIN HIGH TECH ELVEN VIKINGS!
My ideas are to take a fantasy stereotype (In this case, Elves), mix them in with something in our own world that is diametrically opposite of the stereotype, and add in some high tech equipment.
I've only done vikings, but I'll be researching some high tech add-ons. Which could be night vision goggles, or some kind of Hi Tech Visor that enhances vision. Something like that
Here's another stereotype breaker - How about one of you two research Dwarven Bards and Minstrels? That's a neat idea.

Weren't we supposed to do only high fantasy level of tech?

Hhhmm, didn't see that among the rules, I'll PM daestwen for clarification .

Also, I think that being 3 we only have to make 6 portraits total.. 3 evil, 3 good..

I'd go for Female elf fighter (viking is cool), Orc or Ogre wizard and Dwarven Bard..

Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys would be willing to accept another member. I'm a fairly experienced pencil artist without a lot of digital painting experience, but I'm really quick to learn and I want to push my skills with this comp.

Perhaps Sacreti We'll have to discuss with the group.
Anyway, I'm not so good with characters, but here are a few Elven Vikings done in line and mostly value. My characters are ok with just linework, but now I'm trying to move more into value, and then eventually do a character with just that.
Anyhow, here they are:
I'll be doing more Hopefully they improve with each attempt.

Should I just wait before I do anything then? I've got some ideas for a character that would fit in with your elvish vikings...
August 6th, 2009 #11
Would help if we could see something from your work
August 6th, 2009 #12
Ok, here are some sketches on the viking elves and the dwarf bard...

Heya again guys
I did two pictures today, still crap, but an improvement on previous attempts nonetheless. The Drow was done in line, then value. I couldn't get the 2nd, lighter complexioned viking elf female to look good in just value, so I put the linework over everything else.
Nice explorations Quikenobi
Maeve, post some art, I'd like to see some more.
Sacretis: Yeah, as Kenobi said, it would be great to see some of your art first. It doesn't have to be spectacular, just to get an idea of what you can do. For example, I'm not entering this contest to win, but to learn how to work in groups and improve myself.
Anyhow, here's the two female elven vikings. As I said, still crap, but I get better every day.
Edit: Also, I really like your pencils Kenobi, would love to see more.
Anyway, I'll do some line thumbs of Female Elven Vikings - I'm not that good with value yet, but I am with line.
