    Good stuff, guys! To share some thoughts, if you don't mind:

    majortom: You have a sweet base there. I know it's in an early stage but, watch out for the monster's legs.. right now I'd almost switch them around.. make the right leg left and left one right (what?). Cause it's kind of an awkward pose he's in.
    Jager I'm really diggin your Dracula Pope so far. Haha. Looks nasty evil!
    Jay-Zee: It's looking really nice but.. Aren't you planning to show a little more of her face?
    lkjhgfdsa: Heavy metal Franky... How much more awesome could it get?
    dashinvaine: Dude, I want to see that finished! I'm betting it's gonna be soweet!!
    z01ks: I'm not sure if he's dancing or putting on a jacket, but in either situation, it's looking badass!
    Dionesiist: Looking great so far, now show us all those unnecessary details!!!

    Ok, here's my progress so far. The idea was to make the face human-looking enough, to show he's still a man; cursed forever, but a man, nonetheless.
    I'm unsure about the blood. Leave it there or take it out? that's the question.

    A tiny bit more done:

    I'm not sure whether to leave the ghouls in black and white, so it looks like they've come alive out of the old films, or to put a hint of colour on them...Thoughts welcome.

    This is the direction I decided to go. Still going to change some things like the face before I start rendering in earnest, but I think its a pretty good idea of what the final will look like.

    Fergster, that is gorgeous. Jason Snair - I keep thanking all your posts... I think I am infatuated with your process. I LOVE this creature drawing. Jay-Zee - I like that you are experimenting, but it is SO hard to get any kind of a read on your characters when you show them from behind, so I would be wary of going with a pose like that, it handicaps you from the get-go. (edit: we posted at the same time, this pose reads much better. look up some poodle skirts on things like halloween costume websites - they tend to be poofier and don't usually sit SO low on the legs - you can see the ankles and the socks and stuff.)

    my sketches have been crap so far, thank goodness we have two weeks. Back to the drawing board... :/

    hey everybody! this'll be my first CHOW, so hopefully I'm doing everything right...

    Anyway, love this challenge! I went with the wolfman because he's by far my fav of those monsters, and I couldn't stop coming back to him.

    so first i did some sketches:
    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    before this more finalized one: Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    I wanted to make him both more wolf-like than the original wolfman, but also to convey some sense of confusion at being the wolfman. Actual wolves in pain/fear/human situations would be both terrified and horrifically confused, so imagine how terrifying and confusing it is to be the wolfman. I really like the idea of him being a composite of both wolf and man- both physically and emotionally. hopefully i can finish on time!

    Dashinvaine: I think you should definitely keep the monsters in black and white. They'll make more of a statement that way. Especially if the foreground/frame is brightly colored.

    Evening folks This is my 1st post, I've been loitering a while now and this is the 1st chance I've had to have a crack at this. This is my take on the Bride. Should hopefully get the chance to play about with some colour over the next few days.

    Eh eh eh... so many new people challenging themselves (me included).

    diissar: Great job! Your style is very clean, I like it. Maybe not this time but in the future you should invest more time and effort in learning dramatic lightning, just a thought...

    Wiggers: Nice sense of anatomy and composition. You shoul be more bold in your aprouch to the theme though...

    aag: Nice perspective and colour! Becareful with those soft brushes, try hard ones too...

    Jason Snair: Nice colours and anatomy, I like the pose too...

    fersteger: It promises alot...

    Arthur 'Two Sheds': Nice composition and concept! I think you should try more colour variation...

    z01ks: Nice textures and the mummy is pretty dynamic, but where is she looking at?

    Dionesiist: Nice pose man! But that moustache...

    Cheers

    Thanks for the advice Jessibean. I thought I had the poodle skirt right and didn't even bother looking it up, but you're absolutely correct, I'm not sure what I was thinking. I think I'll be reworking the whole thing again, good thing there's still another week.

    Wiggers: Loving that wolfman in yours. The face is almost looks bat-like but it's really cool.

    Diissar: I like the take on Dracula. Very regal.

    aag: Cool creature concept, it reminds me of Cthulhu

    Fersteger: It looks great already, I love the color palette you're going with. I can't wait to see it finished.

    Dashinvaine - youve got some real nice work going there but I feel like you're not so much redesigning the characters as just drawing them. This is a character design competition not an illustration competition after all.

    fersteger: I really dig this. It's a good start. I like the color palette and the energy of the brush strokes. It has some emotion to it. I hope that you keep some of that while progressing. With this style I'd almost say you could get away with a loose rendering of the background and some of the body. As long as the face and some other areas like the hands or upper chest were tighter.

    feralkiwi: Cool sketches. I like your animated style

    Dissar: Good job man. Nice. Although, this thought just came to me. Originally you wanted to go for the historical Vlad Dracual...and he was known for impaling his victims. I'm wondering if instead of a sword he has a long impaler staff...or maybe the hilt of the sword if long and spiked. (Just thinking aloud right now....)

    Bride of Frank

    AAg, I love the slime factor, if you made the posts smaller your creature would look bigger, great form too.
    These are looking so good.
    Arther of two sheds, is she dead or trying to get back up? her shoulders look like she's trying to get up in a tensed position but she looks either dead or passed out so they would be relaxed completely. Nice job.
    I did some more work on mine still working on everything, at this point these scars look like hippy attire to me?!?!?! still working on hands and everything Good pieces guys!!

    Holy crap - there's two weeks for this CHOW? Originally, wanted to do a Creature from the Black Lagoon - we had a Universal remastered DVD of the film at the bookstore, until someone bought it on a day I wasn't there! Grrrrrr....wanted to have it on as I worked on the WIPs. Aw well....

    Anywhoos, Jason Snair: love what you've got. I dig the color palette and movie poster idea! One of my fave monster films of all time and you're updating it something fierce.

    kelly x - dig your Bride piece! Eerie feel to it.

    I gotta look over the rest...this is a mighty awesome CHOW.

    Hello Everyone,

    This is my first ever post and participation. I've enjoyed this forum/site and visited often. It was high time I joined this amazing rag-tag group of enthusiastic Concept folks. I will try to comment on as many as I can and be as involved as possible. Would have loved to have taken part in past CHOW's, but better late then never.

    Well enough talk, lets get to it...
    [Disclaimer: All images reduced size/quality]

    1.) Pick A Character - I chose the Wolfman.

    2.) Thoughts - I did some sketches of what we have come to know and what was out there, basically just get the pen moving...

    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    3.) Decisive - Pick a direction (more on this later...)

    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    (Even though I want to keep some human elements to him - he is still between stages of transformation, but I thought I'd see what the next phase could perhaps look like...)

    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    4.) Theme - As mentioned before, picking a direction was key. I wanted to play the Wolfman up with another character.

    5.) 2nd Character - Enter Bride Of Frankenstein. (What would she look like?)

    Chow 178:: Hallowe’en special: Universal monsters

    Ultimately, I am thinking about taking ideas that I like from each and combining to fulfill the theme I have in mind. We'll, hopefully that's a decent start for the first set of designs. Next step is to do a final look for The Bride, then put them together for the final.

    Feel free to comment or not or rip to pieces. Cheers and good luck to everyone!
