Doomsday Dream Clan is making a return to the Team Chow III. Here are our members:
Clanlord - returning to DDC, hails from Bulgaria
Headhunter - new DDC member, professional artist from Bulgaria
Niva - returning to DDC, originally from Bulgaria, currently lives in Houston
Last time we had a lot of organizational problems and we started late, this time we're not going to start late and we have big motivation to represent in this challenge (ie. kick ass and take names, those fruity loveboys are going down.)
We are still in the process of planning the positions which each of us will occupy during the work over the stuff. Again we will show some very serious stuff which will be spectacularly developed as we got a new guy joining us
Headhunter. He is a fresh out selection and his talent is enormous: gathered through years of education in human anatomy and painting he is the spine of the team. Here are some of his finished works released here in CA:
Hey Clanlord, thanks a lot for putting these together. Personally I like the last one the best, I used it to make an announcement on my site about our team here: http://www.eternalseven.com/?p=609
I've set up ftp accounts for both of you so that we can share our big psd files throughout the challenge. Let me know if you have problems accessing the account, we will need it to transfer files.
As far as the work goes, I really want to take about a week at the start where we only do concepts. This is what was missing last time with our team Clanlord, we had no time to pick and choose which characters we will push and except for the babies you came up with all the other characters.
Once the first phase is done, conceptualizing our characters, we will enter the detailed drawing phase. Where we will create our initial sketches of our final characters and environments. Then during the 3rd week I want to have most of the artwork finished so that we can concentrate on touching up our entries in the last week, doing the necessary writing for our characters and if we have time to do something extra.
Week 1 - conceptualizing with solid ideas on what we want to do by end of week
Week 2 - detailed first drafts by end of week 2
Week 3 - mostly finished artwork
Week 4 - finishing touches and writing, any extra work beyond challenge requirements that we can put together for our final entry.
I want all 3 of us to be involved in every phase of the challenge. Our limitation right now is that Clanlord doesn't do much Photoshop work but this is why these challenges come around, so we can push ourselves forward. If things don't work out in this regard Clanlord can work on finishing touches, his crazy fonts and initial drafts for the writing as the challenge wraps up.
Let me know what you guys think. These are of course suggestions, we will all do what we can. I think the first 2 phases are the most crucial and it's very important we get through them ahead of the curve because if we fall behind we won't do well.
Clanlrod, I just spoke with Headhunter and he's off to celebrate the new year but should be back on the 1st of January. It's up to th two of us to choose the tarots we want to work.
I think we should do 1 high arcana and 5 lessers. I was going to suggest we do the Queen of Pentacles and the High Priestess (high arcana)
I've already requested those since they are available slots and it seems almost all cards are already requested. Really sucks that we missed the signup so far but I thought they said it won't be announced until the 1st of January and was busy doing other things.
