Team Chönyid bardo: Team Activity
Hala (team leader): Hala has been a fantastic leader and an invaluable member of our team. Right for the start she showed true organizational talent coming up with design idea charts ( See here ), and fantastic calendars and deadlines ( See here ) not to mention great reference images and sites!
Too top of the amazing organizational effort she even started our own site which can be viewed Here .
As well as a leader, she has produced some beautiful works of art (hala’s finale images are the two Queen characters), and like everyone has contributed extremely helpful crits, advice and paintovers to help the team along and to enhance the learning process.
And she has done all this while moving house!
Snootchy: Snootchy has shown himself to be an irreplaceable member of the team, and also an amazing team player! Snootchy was to one who organized got our team together in the first place. Like everyone he gathered some great reference images, and has organized and managed the many team conferences we have had over MSN.
Snootchy has been producing some amazing wips and finished works of art all though out this competition, which have always motivated and inspired our team more. His finale images are the 2 Rook characters.
Again like everyone Snootch has contributed heaps of critiques and motivation which have been invaluable to our team’s progress!
Grandmassa Mr. Spect: Haha, what the fu*k hasn’t this guy done! Right from the get go he was on to it with a heap of great reference and inspiration images and sites to get the creative juices going!
Grandmassa has brought his world famous energy (which can only come from 6 redbulls before breakfast) to our team once again… And boy has it helped!!!! This dude really has been rocking from the start, producing a great amount of art, critiques and advice to get this team moving!
Grandmassa really has been the motivation we all need, (drop by your local Wal-Mart and pick one up today!) and is always there to sprinkle the crack!
His two finale images are the two super hot Knights riding both a gorilla and a dinosaur! He ROOOOOOCKS!!
JailHouseRock2 (Myself): I believe I have also done my fair share for this awesome team! From the start of this competition I have started and consistently managed our team sketchbook (which is now 9 pages long), submitted a lot of reference and inspiration images, and helped form our team along the way. I have also contributed to the overall design features and look of our team’s artwork, and have made many, many critiques and advice and making sure to be as honest as I can with all of them.
Like everyone one I have produced countless wips, sketches, character models and finished works of art, (in fact our team has submitted over 100 images in our SB).
I have produced 4 finale images for this competition, which include both good and evil Kings, and both good and evil Bishops.
As well as this I have finalized all portraits, adding borders and final touches, written up Team Activity reports and character profiles, and submitted all here.
And we also have to mention Waild, who didn’t make it to the end (he moved to Belgium) but has been a great supporter and Cheerleader! And also to all the fantastic people who have supported our team, and given crits, especially Jigie, Dwardo, Peetaer and Jason Rainville. Thanks guys!
The Characters: (in order of appearance)
King: The king is a giant of a man - literally. He is descended from a line of warriors, Brawlers and Fighters that actually breed with the giants… to save you cleaning up vomit; I won’t got into any detail.
He gained his power by a mixture of brute force, strategy and marriage. He has always been a strong general, capable of commanding the large numbers of solders at his command… but it was the marriage to his Queen that won him his crown… even if he’ll never admit it.
But in spite of his strategic knowledge, some say he still has a much darker, more violent side… something left over from his barbaric heritage. He still craves the battle field, and the smell of blood.
Queen: While her King and her people are fighting on the front lines, she moves through the castle defenses and the thick forest trees, healing and buffing her fellow war mates. Feeling the need to appear regal and superior at all times; her armor is rather grandeur and decorative. She is a lady to the finest degree; decked in fur and layers; elegant and refined.
However she is quite petty with keeping her appearance--If an enemy's blood happens to stain her skirt or shoes, she will run to her King whining and crying like a child until he adequately dismembers the enemy's body for such a sin. Her Childish antics and fragility often annoy people, but it is what keeps her on her toes, moving swiftly from one wounded warrior to the next, evading many attacks and messes. This capability however also leads her to be quite boastful.
After all, there are not many people who can brag about healing a thousand soldiers during a bloody battle while keeping their appearance perfect and pristine.
Rook: Born into nobility due to their protective nature, succubi reside close to their king's. They are either looked down upon by the human race and feared for their frightening appearance or love struck in awe of their beauty.
Their appearance could be described as demon like with wings that keep them warm in the winter solstice and horns and tails that protrude from their head and body. Succubi create false perception by invoking climate changes, whether it be a misty fog to create a screen of some sort or to create hazardous blizzards to cloak the location of their kingdom. One uses the power for protection while the other uses the false perception to kill their enemies furtively.
Bishop: The kingdoms chief Holyman isn’t really a man at all. His is a frost Elf, the oldest indigenous race in this ice covered land. He has been allies with the King for longer than anyone can remember, making sure the King only slaughtered innocent beings in the name of God, and then saying a quick prayer afterwards.
Hi is a worthy Mage, keeping the enemy busy from afar, and his motivational speeches are legendary! And he can always be seen with a Bible/spell book in hand, constantly quoting from it… Or at least clams to quote from it, as they are written in a text no one has spoken in centuries!
Knight: This young half-elf has been in the center of some controversy lately. Her lineage has been called in to question once again, its well known she’s a half elf… but whats the other half? Some are saying she’s the kings long lost daughter, and if this is true things could get very heated a round the courtyard. One things for sure though… this pretty little thing can look after herself! One of the fastest, strongest warriors in the land, she can slice your head of and sever it with pork and beans before your friends can say “Duck!!!!”.
