    ChoW 206 :: Father Time

    ChoW 206 :: Father Time



    ROUND #206:: Father Time


    DESCRIPTION



    Father Time



    Last week was Mother Nature’s turn, this week we are going to visualize a more abstract concept: Father Time!

    Father Time is the personification of time and death and he is often depicted as an old man with a scythe and an hourglass. He announces the passing of time and the coming of Death. When you see Father Time, you know you’re time is up…

    Design Father Time!

    • Setting can be anything
    • Include references to time and death (not necessarily the scythe and hourglass) and both have to show in your design
    • Father Time is not the same as the Grim Reaper, as he also symbolizes the passing of time!
    • Remember that Father Time is an old man, not a young stud



    Some reference:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father_Time

    And images:

    Nice, I didnt even know that there was such a simmilar character to the reaper.
    Here in Germany we know the "Sensenmann" (The man with the scythe) and "Gevatter Tod" (Father death) which both are more or less the same, what in english is called the grim reaper, although it can be an old man as well.

    Just some info to enlarge your knowledge XD

    So the brief is basically saying that this must, must, must, be an old man, correct?? Because it would be cool for it to be a grisly, middle-aged, armor-clad curmudgeon...

    These past few weeks' topics have been a very strong start for the new Moderators, kudos to you both. I missed Gaia but I'll try to make time to give this a go.

    "Look mommy, I was able to draw scifi soldiers to here also!! The topic was an old man with a hourglass!"

    ...yeah.

    My first ever CHOW, wooo!!

    The descrition said "He announces the passing of time and the coming of Death. When you see Father Time, you know you’re time is up…" So here's Father Time, about to knock this guy on shoulder and tell his time is up. ( He has of course magically stopped time to everyone exept them.) Dunno if this is a good idea but meh. Gotta try.
    I'm going to dress the Father on accessories from many many many time periods. Kinda like souvenirs..

    Few hours in, but I'm not sure if I'm able to finish this. No access to computer propably for most of the week.. Lets see then.

    Here I am again, taking a shot... biting off more than I can chew

    I figure Father Time has this ZZ Top thing going, which I appreciate... and there's "time" in there as well as death (impending, at least). Don't know how in the world I'll track down enough reference for this...

    I think I will join CHOW for the first time in my short time here at CA.org. When I was imagining Father Time I got thinking about the Simon and Garfunkel song "Old Friends" and listened through it. It got me to thinking about an old man sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons. A few sketches later and this is what I have right now.

    Huzzah for early starts, let's see if my second go at it actually makes it to the end. lol.
    Saw the theme and it just came outta me woooo. I'm really trying to portray him as the bystander who has the misfortune to watch everything around him fall victim to the passage of time, rather than an active figure in the going ons of the world.

    MasterTroglogyte : Watch out, Father Time should be the primary focus in your piece, and you'll have to show at least 3/4th of him. About his age, well at least he has to show age, as he symbolises the passing of time. So at least don't make him young.

    Mephistoau: I like him a lot! No super useful suggestions though.. maybe give him a giant blingy clock necklace? The walker sides also look kind of like scythes but that's less practical..

    Cool topic, time to stop the slacking for me ^^. Lots of cool sketches posted already, keep it up!
    Don't really have any crits except maybe a suggestion for

    MasterTroglodyte:
    You have a sweet composition and moment going on there. Tho you might want to keep in mind that a Chow needs to be visible for 3/4 and since father time is in the spotlight, maybe cut down a bit of the female (or change pose) and show father time from the knees up. Just a suggestion .

    For my own image all I know is I want him to show he has been/suffered trough time by letting his bones come trough at some points. Maybe his skin got too thin or is mergin with the bones. Gonna brainstorm and doodle some more.

    RichLyons Oh.. My.. GOD.. i love that design!

    This is my first CHOW attempt, here are two quick thumbs, however i'm not sure if i'm going a tad too environmental with my idea?

    The center triangle figure is the Father Time arms folded, with an hourglass at the back of both thumbs and then an object in front of him.

    Would love any feedback

    Woo! good to be back. Was sick for a week Missed Gaia.
    My goal for this ChoW is to put my design across in a compelling way. Its going to be hard

    Kamikazuh - its a cool idea man but I dunno if dressing him up like he lives in modern society is the best Idea. In my mind he is constantly roaming through some weird demension we dont even see and he probably doesnt wear converse lol. But its up to you, all the same Id suggest doing some sketches of what you want him to look like before starting the painting, good luck, hope you finish!
    AhChu - I really like those robes man. He looks powerful! And kinda like a tombstone, which is niice.
    MasterTroglodyte - I like the shades Id make him more visable though.
    Si_Swe - Unexpected, cool idea man
    ChileanIggy - For what your going for maybe try making him look more tired, bags under his eyes. Make him look tortured. Right now he just looks like he has to take the rubbish out hehe. Oh also watch the anatomy, most of its good but that ear.
    Mephistoau - Thats hilarious dude, hes gota go all round the world killing people and he can hardly walk haha!
    ajaxplaysdice - Anatomys off, try being sketchyer at this early stage, dont be afraid to draw through things to make sure everythings right.
    dkiearth - Do some sketches of the character first, trust me! It will really help
    RichLyons - Awesome concept, looks like a boss out of a game maybe. I had the same he collects clocks Idea... Thought I was being original haha!
    ponderponder - I think of being aged as not neccesarily bone showing through but more so skin sagging/wrinkles. Maybe try that? At least in the face.
    glaudarien - The window on the right is cool, maybe leave the ground before him more blank? and just have his cast shadow there.

    Now my image. Havent started ChoW on the monday yet Hopefully gives me a better result.
    My Idea is for this weird hallucination the dying suffers where all around them is a wall of hair that appears to be coming from FT's beard. Also he collects watches and straps them to his legs and ties pocket watches to his beard and other places. Having trouble coming up with a costume, I had him just naked but thats too bare. But I feel like giving him something to wear is against what im going for which is this weird trip that is other worldly.
    Please, tear my work apart.

    Smile

    Old Man!) super theme I always like that type of characters! And my first association was Old Man from Korpiklaani's cover http://www.666-deathmetal.de/CD_Cove..._this_road.jpg(like this)a man from woods - one of my favourite object to draw.

    Ha-ha, so much super sketches that I just lose courage!)
    RichLyons's character is very stylish and zooty
    AhChu's drawing reminds me about Renaissance
    MasterTroglodyte - such a drama! and he is cool as a cucumber (i found this super phrase in dictionary sorry if it's wrong )
    And I always like to see how some of your draw cartoon-like characters.

    I too made 2 sketches - I'm not original)

    Pixeltuner....i-is he flicking us off?
    Kamikazuh Cool concept. There is always a valid reason to draw sci-fi soldiers!
    AhChu Not bad man! I like seeing how you progress so good. Everyone starts out stereotypical, try to play with the elements of time and death more. It's a great start
    MasterTroglodyte Father Time reminds me of Blade, but with a beard
    RichLyons Sweeeeet!
    glaudarien I really like your compositions.

    These are some thoughts/sketches I made so far.

    Think of this one as a comic book cover. Father Time in the front, the Grim Reaper appearing from behind him and a giant clock on the back.

    Father Time, right? Why not "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned"-kind of Father? I'm still playing with this thought. Right now I tend towards this concept. The giant circle could be a big fresco painting telling a story of Time and Death.

    Father time is pointing at his watch saying: "It's time~". From his watch smoke starts to appear and we catch a glance of the Grim Reaper.

    Any thoughts? I'll pick my favorite tonight when I get the chance to plan the images out some more

    Malakuko: Thanks for the feedback!

    Edited the 2nd thumb using malakukos suggestion and replaced the coffin with his shadow being cast. I have also created a new thumb that focuses more on Father Time himself rather than his environment also. Really unsure which i prefer, i really like the window thumbnails though i'm unsure i can represent his age within those thumbs, thanks for any feedback!
