    Chow 195 :: Mystic Gunslinger - HOST : Jason Rainville


    ROUND #195 :: Mystic Gunslinger

    DESCRIPTION

    Mystic Gunslinger

    This wild west character, not satisfied with the power of their 6-shooter, has combined the use of pistols with magic. It’s up to you how the combination works and what effect it has.

    While the character can be from any time period, the pistol(s) and costume must reflect the wild west theme. He or she can be wielding laser pistols or steam punk compressed gas handguns, so long as we can look at them and see that they really have a thing for the old cowboy tales.

    ---

    Thanks to Jason Rainville for the topic this week!

    Unhappy Chow195 mystic gunslinger

    Yeah... I really need to finish these lol, this time... >> I think I may switch it around... not really sure if I'm so fond of this one. Hmmm... I think I'll probably go with the second one... more potential.

    Nice topic. I'm going with a cyberpunk gunslinger. Hopefully neuro-hacking kind of stuff can count as mystic? I'm thinking her gun's going to be augmented with some crazy cyberpunk or tron-like...thing. Possibly it can hack neuron implants temporarily paralyzing or compromising the enemy's..brain I guess. I don't know, if its not gonna be mystic enough I'll change it.

    Also the world needs more cyberpunk.

    gonna try to put her on a street with cyberpunk, blade runner style neon future stuff too. Gonna realllllly try to get a good looking end product this time.

    Just a quick sketch... I just wanted to draw at least something. Didn't really think about the concept or anything 8[

    (my problem right now is that I'm trying to NOT go into the direction of the manga Kurohime, since I absolutely always have to think of that as soon as I hear "mystic/magic gunslinger" ;D)

    Sounds awesome. I'm thinking something high-fantasy-meets-WWW, maybe with a steampunk twist, if I can swing it!

    Sunroamer: I like the body gesture a lot, and the almost yin yang shapes the gun smoke is making.

    here is my sketch, my anatomy is off, I need much practice. So crit away.


    Ok, I thought the 1st one was a tad boring. I think I like this idea better. I want her jumping off a table, perhaps bar shooting a fella.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Edit01:

    A couple more.Since the first sketches were more about magic used on the guns(moving, using them and charge the rifle) i thought about the magic as a defensive shield and some kind of "powder" that freeze the rival in order to shoot with ease.

    1st wip for this one.

    Brief idea summary:

    Outlaw that got hold of a magic tome and attempted to magically enhance his weaponry to get an edge on his enemies. Unfortunately the spell he attempted backfired (most likely due to his lack of knowledge in the arcane arts) and disfigured a portion of his body, fusing his weapon to him,

    Instantly thinking about the angle of death/saint of killers from the preacher comics. Good reference if you want to take a more religeous mystical approach. Think of the ultimate badass ever, then times it by 100, then you have the saint of killers.

    Some say he is in possession of one of the Devil's seven tokens of sin. Other claim to have seen him talk to shadows.. It was once told of a man possessed by a spirit of old, one of the old kin with certain... abilities. What ever gossip there might be revolving this man.. some things are to be weary of. The wind whispers no longer in his presence, as if afraid of being noticed.. woods grow silent, not even the birds sing. And the animals, you should see the animals. Their eyes seem to be robbed of all signs of vitality as if they were forced to face death himself.

    I'll have to think of a way to formulate the description more poetic cool topic Jason, loving it already.

    some wip.. and some more wip.

    My idea for gunslinger is thanks to my amazing other half, but won't reveal the idea yet!
    I'm going to go for a classic pose - but think i may go for one where the viewer is looking up from a lower position, need to get more ref first.

    Changed my original image to this one. My gunslinger has no eyes - but is still a great shot...
