Man, what awesome sketches so far.
Chris Proof: i like it, looks just like him ^^
Glaudarian: Nice idea on going the graphical way, I am looking forward to see more.
Why not going all the way ? Give him a flashy suit and all that gangsta stuff, with this giant golden clock XD
And you should concider the rules about how much you need to show of him.
Master Troglodyt: You should think about changing the layout before going any further. Father time is the topic of this round but in your sketch it appears more like its the woman.
Now for my own. When I thought about time I just had to think about some old, mean man who is like a total bureaucrat. Alwas having a time plan for everything and using that "Take a number and wait" box.
And when he appears to someone they try to talk to him like "No, I am too young, thats not fair" and he just answers "So what, you wanna tell me about live ?"
I am still looking for the right clothes, but I am aiming for something simple, not too flashy.

Wow, a lot of great sketches and ideas! I'm seeing the same old man in all kind of different personas.
Aargh, this round is driving me mad! Drawing old men is a pain. Same goes for the abstract element of time. Ah well....no pain no gain right
I seriously don't know where to go with it. Right now I portrayed Father Time as a crazy old man going trough to the ages telling people their time is up and grabbing their cool gadgets when they died. Think of him as a crazy grandfather type
Aargh! Any thoughts are very welcome.
Okay, some more work. I'm getting more confident about it...

RichLyons: Loving it! Although maybe the red numbers on the digital clock pull away too much attention from the dude. Maybe make them less red, or go for a LCD type display?
Damned! Great battle with this "Father time"
Great work everybody.
my colour wip
There are some very impressive entries coming ahead once again, keep the good work everyone
Beware of the 3/4 rule MasterTroglodyte and Arghosro.
Rich, I'm loving the design, the character sheet approach is a welcome change too. Oh and the Back to the Future reference is totally rad
my idea so far...it needs a lot of work yet but if you guys have any suggestion is more that wellcome...
there is something that i dont like in the left arm but i cant figure out what exactly.
Vaejoun— Father time is still the topic of the sketch. I saw him as being a kind of witness to death; a marker of the passage from one life to another, etc. I'm going to play somewhat with the lighting, but this imagery feels right to me. I want the "character" of Father Time to be defined by his "presence" at the moment of death. In the future I'll spend more time doing something less illustrative, more like what the incredible RichLyons is producing currently.
I am curious where you take the picture.
At the moment I have a little trouble with him. Im not sure, if it works this way.
Some C&C would be nice.
ugh, im out, .psd got corrupted and not enough time to start over
Vaejoun, I think he looks to pedestrian atm, I understand you don't want him to be some big fantasy character, but he's looking a bit librarian'esq' . I like all the little touches your adding, like the belt buckle thing, and his staff, but perhaps give him more of a wise look, or give his clothing a bit more age?
But it all depends how you want to approach it really? As a more understated sort of time 'keeper' character I think you're succeeding, so just keep pushing it!
That was a horrible crit, I think I managed to contradict myself whilst at the same time not really say anything helpful :p sooooorry man, but yeah, I like it. He has a lot of character at the moment, it's just more understated. I feel like I could describe the place he worked in or lived in and the way he moves so I'd say you're on the right track
Here is the development of father time concept for CHOW, still don't know how I will depict death... any thoughts!! Help is appreciated!!!
My SB!!! Check it out!!!

pfft Im slow and late.
All of these are amazing, I'll have to look at em better when I have the time, I leave you with this:
Also, anyone know how to go about drawing a ram?
RichLyons- that looks badass, especially the tick marks on his arm. very creative!
mundi - Nice sketch man Its funny how many people thought of the collector thing hehe
gdlr - lovin that little dude! is it kind of aztec? or native american theme? Whatever it is I really like it.
ArtByManon- Cool Idea, kinda creepy hehe. I think it needs more elements to strenghten it though.
Amedyr - The friendly dad persona is just a ruse right? hehe
Sillirien - The first sketch is interesting!
ARRGH! - Wow really cool sketch! Dont see much charcoal drawings, persuming it is.
I was lost for a while but im slowly getting somewhere with this one.
