    ROUND #181:: Cú Chulainn

    DESCRIPTION

    Cú Chulainn

    Cú Chulainn is an Irish hero from Celtic/Gaelic culture. He also appears in Scottish and Manx storytelling. He was a knight of the 1st century and often compared to Achilles in Greek Mythology. When enraged he would become a ‘bezerker’ as in Viking culture. He was slain in a fight and like El Cid in later history, was propped up in an heroic pose, spear in hand to strike fear into his enemies even after death, and it was only when a raven landed on his shoulder that his demise was revealed.

    He was seen as an Irish hero, riding a chariot, and defending Ulster against usurpers including Queen Medb of Connaught and even appeared to Saint Patrick as a ghost.

    Cú Chulainn‘s appearance is open to interpretation, but he is described as clean shaven, young ( he died at 27 ), and some tales tell he had seven fingers on each hand and seven toes on each foot. And seven pupils in each eye. There is much description of him on his Wikipedia page, as there is of his life. There should be plenty of inspiration there in his adventures for an interesting version of this mythological hero.

    Remember, knights of the 1st century would have been nothing like middle-ages knights. Their appearance would have been more ‘Asterix the Gaul’ than traditionally styled Arthurian knights. So leather, furs and armour more suited to Romano-Britain and Europe.

    Although not strictly a two parter, this ChOW will be followed up with a linked character next week.


    ------------

    ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
    1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
    2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
    3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE?

    --------------------

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);


    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.


    Please review these helpful reminders if you have not done so already.

    ON GETTING TO POLL
    -------------------------
    NEW ROUND RULE: WIPS PLEASE!
    -------------------------
    SUBMISSION FORMAT REMINDER



    PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE YOUR COPYRIGHT INFORMATION UNDER THE IMAGE IN THE FINAL BURNING THREAD SO I DON'T HAVE TO HUNT YOU DOWN LATER!

    - is it named correctly? (ie, "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg")
    - has it been uploaded using the attachment editor?
    - have you also uploaded or linked to your wips?
    - have you followed the brief?

    Good luck!

    For me Cú Chulainn is a full of pain like hero.
    I show him when calming down after a berserk rush.

    thanks for all the crits

    Well, this is my interpretation of Cu Chulainn: About to throw his spear, he is going into a berserk state, his eye is glowing red and the tips of his hair are spilling blood. In his cape you can see the shapes of his monstrous face and the crow that symbolizes his death.

    I forgot to save wips when I was trying stuff that didn't work, so they are a bit scarce...

    Anyway, from crying over his dead son to his own demise, it's one and only Cú Chulain!

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""

    sweet, done. decided to focus on the spear splitting apart and gave it a thorns motif because of that.
