    Howdy lovely people

    Sorry, I've not been very active lately. Uni strikes back again on daily bases and the battle won't be over until the end of the month. The enemy is also working on some bad bad plans called exames. Those sneaky bastards. Anyway:

    Here is some more Ideas on the 3ofS. I dismissed the group concepts for now. The base design for this one is what I found to be the most common design for the Three of Swords: a heart pierced by three swords:
    Team ChoW III - Utopian Battleship

    The card deals with Absence. Sorrow. Disappointment. Strife. Removal. Dispersion. Diversion. Opposition. Separation. Delay. Betrayal. Abandonment. Rejection. A reversal of fortune. And getting in touch with pain and sorrow.

    I went for the latter aspect in my sketches, even though in a more physical way than the card probably stands for. If anybody has some ideas for a concept that deals with a more mental kind of pain/lost let me know.
    .
    The composition of the first sketch looks somewhat classic. But the blood stain is on the right side of her chest and I'd rather want it to be on the left because that's were the heart is. So far I think the second posture is the most credible one. You would probably go for this posture in order to show that you are sacrificing your blood on purpose or that your are harming your own hand deliberately with a clear cut. The blood stain in her hand is a little small and the blood doesn't look like it's having the form of a heart yet. I will have to do some anatomy and hand studies in order to find a good solution for that. The third sketch looks more like an injury that is performed accidentally due to anger or wrath.

    The colors don't represent anything. Just used them to give it some structure.


    Instinct: Good to see the foreground is back. I think it's really crucial for the atmosphere of this one. Is she carrying four more swords behind her back?

    Nike: Cool, now I can see what you had in mind with the mask designs. For "the world" I think it would be more effective to replace the right planet by the moon since it gets a little lost on the right side of the composition. I think in mythology it is quite an important and cool symbol for duality.

    Mimer: The head looks cool, reminds me of that robot from Metropolis. The posture fits better, too for compositional purposes..

    okay, here's another one. (I know I have a weird way of working on my stuff.) I was thinking about coherence. It might be a good idea to achieve some: So tell me what you guys think, especially instinct: *rimes*

    mimer: she definitely looks somewhat like a dude. I'd stick to the first sketch.

    here is an update on the 3ofS. I'll come up with a slightly altered design for her armor/battle suit if I find the time.

    hey all, finally finished my line work for the five of swords.

    There are a few anatomy irregularities that ill fix after placing values, but I've finally got a design i think i'm happy with finishing.

    I've also decided on my two of cups idea and it's developing.

    I plan on posting progress again tomorrow, for both images, and hopefully I'll be on to the post 50% stage for both of them!

    sunday edit: Updated with initial colours!

    hey everyone! how's your stuff coming along?
    instincts progress is looking good and I'm really fond of Irrlaeufers 3 of swords. Mimer, I'm curious to see how your sketches have developed.

    The five of cups caused me some headache. I have changed my concept for the five of cups, since the one I've posted above turned out pretty boring - I didn't manage to transfer emotions into that mask thing at all, the pose looked ultra-stiff, and the more I tried to fix it the worse it got. In the end I started again with something else...
    what do you think? The frame is just an idea ... the symbol in the corner is the mayan hieroglyph for cup... nothing that needs to stay this way.

    as much as this sucks, I am going to have to realise that I am not going to make the deadline with anything resembling finished pieces. I hope the rest of you 3 can deliver your stuff and I'll happily pm daestwen to say that im dropping off so that your effort isnt dragged off with me. Work has simply been, and continues to be, murder.

    This is as far as I could push my 3ofS. Sadly, I won't be able to finish in time either because uni is killing me. This is a lame excuse since I should have known better. I've been way too optimistic about my time management. Thx to Bologna! If you know what I mean. I've been excited about the whole team chow-thing since I saw some works from TC2 but the truth is, I haven't got almost anything done this year besides of uni stuff. So sorry guys!

    Hey all, I'm attempting to get things presentable but I don't think I'll make it for the deadline tonight.

    I had yesterday and today set aside to finish everything but I caught the flu yesterday morning, it makes it hard to look at a computer screen for very long. I was hoping I could fight this off before today but it didn't happen.

    I'm really sorry Nike! You're stuff looks great and I feel terrible about letting the team down!

    Nike if you want to put your accomplishments into the vote on behalf of our team i think that is perfectly fine, you deserve it!

    If you all are interested in trying this again in the future; next TChOW I'd be honoured to try this again with a lot more vigour on my part!

    Daestwen wrote this in the other thread:
    Okay, no extension.

    Poll will be going up on schedule when I wake up in the morning. So i would say between 8-10 hours from now. I'll post a "Hour to Deadline" warning while I do the preparation to put up the poll.

    For those that aren't done, or want a couple extra days, you can take them. BUT, you will miss those days from the poll and you won't get any extra votes or anything.

    For those of you who have already finished and posted, feel free to do touchups under the same rules. You, however, won't lose votes, because i will simply replace the old image with the new, updated one, so you'll keep all your old votes.

    Sound fair everyone?
    So, you'd have some more time, I'm not sure though if that is making any difference.

    I will not enter the thread with my pics only since this was a team chow. It wouldn't be a team entry, and consequently kind of pointless. If anyone else here should happen to finish his stuff in the next days, feel free to pick up my finals and post them along with your stuff in the finished thread.

    cheers, and get well soon instinct - catching the flu always sucks
