    Man, im not very good with characters. Im trying my hardest, for this one my first time literally putting it all out there. But im not quitting god-dammit! Here is my work so far. Ship is hidden right now for it looks like complete shit and needs some work.

    But lets see if I can pull a story out of my ass at least....

    I tried.....its going to take some time.....we will just call him Griffin for now though. Lets say he is excessively brutal and violent, and never shows mercy, even to those who do.

    His suit is a nano-carbon fiber alloy suit made for high impact resistance and muscle enhancement. It makes him about 5 times stronger then normal, which is needed to lift the 200 pounds of armor strapped to the suit, the 150 pound lance, and hold onto a steed that can go up to 300 miles per hour.

    The lance is a unique concept. Instead of being energy based or solid, it is composed of numerous bands which interlock with eachother. Inside the lance is a series of air pumps and springs. When impact is made onto the tip, the metal bands compress into eachother, and the pumps, springs, and resistance all push up, causing either the lance to push with extreme force, or just pierce through the enemy with ease. The gold colored rods on both sides are to stop it from going in to far, and to trigger the lance to go off and push. Wow, I can pull that out, but I cant make a story!?
    FUCK YOU YA PRETENTIOUS DICKS!! BAN ME!!

    Looking sweet already Jessi A bit too traditional on the armor considering it's 2706 ad maybe?

    looking great every 1 ^^
    my concept is this:
    vincent and the black shadow.
    vincent, a real underdog in the pangalactic jousting tournament.
    he made his fortune as a scrappie.
    finding old wrecks and hulks in deeps space and towing them back for scrap.
    he spent his last red pence on building his steed. the black shadow.
    when a man has a dream he will work his whole life to get it.
    he makes up for his lack of high end parts with his determination and skill

    the steed is based roughly on the classic motorbike the 'vincent black shadow'
    thats where i got the char and steed name from
    still working on a logo.

    nplaxco: nice concept, and i do think large conglomerate companies like starbucks could easily survive 700 years, dynasties have lasted as long why not companies?

    dwinbotp: cool char design, though the steed is a little chunky for my tastes, though saying that in zero grav weight and shape is'nt that much of an issue XD
    makes u wonder about all those aerodynamic spaceship designs.

    zweidee: love it vry stylish

    wiggers: reminds me a little of the warhamer 40k emperor art, i like theway his logo, the lion, is apart of him to, good idea.

    pixeltuner:hmm i'd make the lance longer, their freaking huge irl, part from that looking good

    nutter: luverly bike design

    n3wtn: that would be awesome soldiers riding different starwars vehicles,
    darth riding the deathstar XD

    jspangler: german, luv it! hmm to improve?: add a handle to the fattest part of the lance to make it look like a beer jug

    digitalblacksmith: hmm his left arm looks a little crushed, might be the shoulder pads coming to far round his chest? also maybe u could try add some flashy stuff to make it look like a futuristic armour made in the style of ancient china? stuff

    eamannick: cool, can imagine ure going to add lots of detail

    carnifex: great anatomy, though i cant stop but think of metroid prime every
    time i look at it must be the shoulder pads, oh and i think without the
    tendrils on the steed, they dont suit it, but it needs something else instead to make it standout.

    so many entries XO

    jessibean: looks great, are you not going to put the steed in? i'd love to see it in the same style as her

    tommoy: i like the bottom right one, in the shape of an animal

    norsehound: good start, love the lance , his pose is a little unnatural, if he was real i think he'd fall foward, try balance it a little more.

    Etheral: I guess so, the size relation isn't really accurate since they're just sketches Update soon!

    Aag; Nice ideas. I really like what you're going for. That last one almost has this "parade before the main event" type of thing going for it. (Reminds me of the Il Palio in Siena, Italy ... the Annual Horse Race there lasts for 90 seconds, but before the race there's a huge ceremonial parade where knights decked out in original armor are blessed by the cardinal.)

    I'm finding this chow to be a real challenge. I usually don't do future...or sporting concepts very often. And right now I have a bunch of ideas but I'm having trouble focusing them into one design. Ah well. back to drawing.

    Just some quick thoughts. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with the lance or flag yet so those are just kind of placeholder. The horse in the background is an idea for decorating the STEED, I like the idea of high tech mixed with ornate decoration.

    Any thoughts?

    There is some awesome stuff going on here.

    This CHOW is going to end up with all the character concept work you would need for a modern remake of "Joust".

    jspangler: it would make a brilliant game, where every char and steed is playable.
    t'would be nice if ca did a competition where the whole community could contribute to a single game

    Hi guys!
    Going to try my first CHOW.
    Here's my rough composition:
    Chow 179 :: CHOW/IDW CROSSOVER :: 2706 AD Jousting

    And I'm going to use the right one of these sketches for the character I think. Tried to start on the above picture but wasn't looking right. Not sure if I'm biting off more than I can chew here.
    Chow 179 :: CHOW/IDW CROSSOVER :: 2706 AD Jousting

    I'm going for a 'moment of calm before the joust' kind of feel with this to show the bond that exists between the rider and his or her steed. Cos I thought the bond humans have with our animals is something that wouldn't change that much over time. So this is a biomechanical horse! I know that's not clear in the sketches and stuff but that will change
    As for the character - well I am using my own surname and heraldry. The symbol being a waterwheel and the colours will be blue and yellow. Any guesses on my surname? LOL. And the sponsor will be a flour brand to tie in with the waterwheel

    Anyways - some kind of crit would be welcome even though I havent got much to show yet. Still a noob to all this and I hope I can finish in time.

    Oh and JessiBean, yours is going to another awesome submission!!

    Looking fantastic, guys, and thanks for another awesome topic! Especially zweiDee, Nutter and PixelTuner, great job with the sketches.

    Here's our shot, although I'm not sure if the character is visible enough for us to participate in this CHOW. Anyhow, the front wheel is for parking only, the steering can be done with the side engines, which the rider controls with his feet. There is also a bigger engine at the back to give this STEED some extra boost.
