Helloooo!!! The speedy Quicksilver (original mittenbop dancer extraordinaire) and I will be forming a two man band for this Chow. You can call us Team Banana!
Everyone do the mittenbop dance!
Ideas - thumbnail themes, gather reference and inspirations Concepts - thumbnail designs once the theme is settled, ideas for similar mood and lighting palette (to help unify the pieces) Finals - 2 paintings each. Each portraying a version of each character with the other doing the other.
OK lets go nutzzzz! I have no scanner anymore so everything will have to be done directly into digital *gulp*

Okay! I took a loada photos from a book I borrowed from the library called "Medieval Costumes, Armour and Weapons" by Eduard Wagner, Zoroslava Drobna and Jan Durdik. It's a compilation of drawings and they're all described and dated at the bottom, so if you want the full res version Ben, let me know.
Starting off with a couple of flags for now, purely because I like how they split and wave/spiral in the wind. I've selected over 30 images from the book, so brace yourself for a big upload....
.....Crikey, do I really have to fill in the copyright thing *every time* I wanna upload stuff? I can understand why it's there but jeez.....typing in "unknown" doesn't work either. Might have to use photobucket or something instead.
I'm not sure what weapon(s) my character will be using yet, but I thought the axe heads might help with coming up with various shapes etc. for a staff or whatever your sorcerer orc will be using. Let me know if you want anything in specific and I'll put 'em up.
Hey Nao!!! I have looked at their thread. Frickin awesome stuuuuff. Nice thumbnails. I like the two at the top right most. Nice head gears especially.
Hmmm we should decide on a theme within the next few days to give us enough time to design the finals and render them.
OK, we've decided on a little sub-theme: cursed souls!!!!!!!
We each decided on characters that are a bit out of our comfort zone and need more practice on. So we have: Male Half-Elf Assassin and a Male Orc Sorcerer
Heres some reference and inspirations for I dug up. Let me know which ones u want a bigger version of, Omi!
