    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:

    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.

    Another cool topic, here is a lunch time sketch, might look at another way of doing the robes...as it looks really stereotypical

    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.
