    Angry Team Chow III: Doomsday Dream Clan

    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.)

    More to come soon.

    Doomsday Dream Clan ASSEMBLE!

    Hello guys! It looks like we are starting again!

    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:

    Icon DDCIII

    OK I think this is the best and hopefully the last variant because I think I made some progress in the symbolism, details, clearness of design and attractiveness.

    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.

    http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=177363

    I've not read up on it at all, just saw it. Please take the time to read and make suggestions on what we want to work on.

    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.

    Anyways, waiting for your response Clanlord.

    Hello guys, just letting you know that I made the request for:

    • High Priestess (high arcana)
    • Four of Wands
    • Two of Wands
    • Ace of Cups
    • Queen of Pentacles
    • King of Pentacles


    Extra: The Fool (high arcana)

    We are not to start drawing until Jan 1st. Just gather reference materials and inspiration.

    Please let me know if you want to change some of the cards selected and I'll work with Daestwen to get us reassignments.

    So OK Nick!

    I think I understood everything. I think your choices are suitable for our team. I fully agree with you. OK if it is I will send you some initial information as a start so we can continue our work! This site is very important because it is in bulgarian so this will make the job even easier.http://www.taroastro.com/

    We have for now 6 tarot cards in which are included one high arcana. If I am write and teams of 3 must draw 6 tarots.
    So if we have to draw 6 characters in tarot cards (because we are three members in a team) we have chosen these:

    * High Priestess (high arcana)
    * Four of Wands
    * Two of Wands
    * Ace of Cups
    * Queen of Pentacles
    * King of Pentacles

    And here are some descriptions which are very important to read before starting to draw:

    THE HIGH PRIESTESS
    http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/learn...riestess.shtml

    TWO OF WANDS
    http://www.learntarot.com/w2.htm

    FOUR OF WANDS
    http://www.biddytarot.com/card.php?i...r%20of%20Wands

    THE QUEEN OF PENTACLES
    http://www.biddytarot.com/card.php?i...of%20Pentacles

    THE KING OF PENTACLES
    http://www.biddytarot.com/card.php?i...of%20Pentacles

    ACE OF CUPS
    http://www.tarotteachings.com/ace-of...d-meaning.html


    RULES

    1. Your team will choose TWO CARDS per person to illustrate. So, a 2 person team needs 4, a 4 person team 8, etc. This is the minimum requirement, you may choose more.
    2. You may only take major arcana for half your cards, please choose Lesser Arcana (The Suits) for at least half. Bonus points for those who do mostly Lesser Arcana!
    3. You will post your choices in this thread. I will allow 4 teams per card. First come, first serve. If we get all the cards covered by at least four teams each, I will then be open to letting you pick cards that are already full. We want to make sure to get a full deck!
    4. Please make sure that your files can be sized down to 9 cm by 15.5 cm (or 3.543 x 6.1 inches) at 300 dpi. I'm exploring the option of seeing if we can get it printed, so please make sure your work is print-quality, or please write "OPT OUT OF PRINT" when you submit your work so I know you're not interested in having your cards printed as part of your deck.
    5. PLEASE DO NOT START DRAWING UNTIL JANUARY FIRST! Right now is the time to get everyone's cards assigned and start brainstorming, but please don't start drawing as it's unfair for the other teams.
    6. That's it, Have Fun!


    TEAM PLAN

    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.

    Hey Clanlord,
    Thanks for posting those reference cards, they're definitely worth thinking about.

    I had an idea about the high priestess card. I wanted to picture her on a hill overlooking an army stretching into the distance. I wanted to give her a light aspect, though the card could change upon the draw to a dark aspect for example, symbolizing that the dark forces would have the blessing of the gods in a conflict the tarot draw is foretelling.

    Also for the Four of Wands, I wanted to draw a four eyed character holding a wand.

    The King of Pentacles I thought about picturing as a crowned mage on a dragon?

    OK guys, here are some of my ideas.

    I don't particularly like the four eyed monster yet, Headhunter said he'll do some busts too and I'll try to get a couple more done tonight.

    Post your ideas here guys. We will pick the best ones before we start really fleshing them out.

    I had an idea about Ace of Cups: Remember Atlas holding the globe? A titan type figure holding a huge chalice. I'll try to sketch it tonight.

    I'm thinking along these lines but having him hold a huge challice. Let me know what you guys think?

    I think you should try to sketch Atlas with the cup, but still have no idea how should look like the ace of cups. Leave it like a last and final picture.

    Yes, I promise more sketching. I'm having real trouble getting started. I hope this is not a bad sign of how things will fall out by the end.

    Really like your sketches: Especially middle one on the right - looks freaky as hell. They're all good tho.

    Don't worry! Try sketching more poses and composiotions for now without any concept work. It will help us to use them as a templates also.

    OK guys here are a couple of other sketches, the idea about the Ace and also a version of the queen. Right now she looks more like a witch girl than a queen though...

    So no, I don't like my own sketch but whatever

    Even though the Ace is a quick sketch I kind of like this idea.

    I was thinking of making the cup full of lava which is pouring down from above and spilling over and around him. On the bridge at his feet there would be trees and people for scale?

    OK guys here is another hack at the Ace of Cups. Headhunter suggested I make him one with the cup, not sure how well this succeeded.

    We need much more sketches this week so we can make some choices.

    Niva, why don't you try with playing with the meaning of these:

    two of wands -
    having personal power
    commanding attention and respect
    directing those around you
    holding the world in your hands
    wielding influence
    calling the shots
    having authority
    swaying others to your position
    being able to achieve your goals
    being bold
    daring to do what you want
    taking a risk
    gambling events will go your way
    confronting the situation head-on
    taking the initiative
    speaking your mind
    facing fear directly
    taking the bull by the horns
    seizing the day
    showing originality
    doing what no one else has done
    creating your own style
    being a pioneer
    taking a different approach
    inventing something new
    diverging from the crowd
    marching to a different drummer

    Try to visualize one of these in your head and what kind of picture you like to present.

    I like the outfit on the queen, not sure about the critter below.

    Thinking about this more it would be nice if we do female versions of half of the characters? High Priestess, Queen of Pentacles and either Two or Four of wands would be our females.

    Clanlord hasn't posted much yet, really need to get rolling on this stuff though. The more we have the better.

    Headhunter, your style has motivated me to try something different with the King.
