    @ Aspectabund: Thank you for the nice comment...most certainly am, and here's another update.

    @ FridayEve: Just gorgeous... love the cat, too. Can't wait to see this finished!

    @ emerging: Love it in so many ways!

    @ Jager: Great take on the subject. Something a bit different, yet very fitting.

    @ Hellfire: Very Chaos Marauder-esque... love it.

    @ GEB: Love the face and the angles. Great work!

    @ Dranyer: Glad you went with the first pose (although I really like the head on the second one), just awesome. His right leg does look a tad big compared to everything else, though.

    @ Paolo13: Love the character and the style. His head seems quite small, though.

    @ Bnoch: Awesome character... very believable, yet badass.

    Everyone else, great work... and they just keep pouring in.

    Here's my latest WIP. Still a lot to do on it.

    ?? HAHAHAHAHAHHA (I was stunned there for a minute - 'no offence' indeed hahahaha)

    So I have to be an 'uber mega concept artist' to offer an opinion do I?

    You look through the link I posted you'll see many, many version of semi naked guys, wearing a bear head - I look through here I see the same image, where's the reinvention?

    We'll have agree to differ or this thread will derail.

    I'll have to save your reply as a quote - kids nowadays heh

    He's not pointing a finger, he's just being observational, and quite spot on too. This is for fun this contest and to improve all of our art. all opinions are different.

    ok sorry, I apologize, I really didnt meant it as an offense, but the thing is its totally obvious that there is nothing really special in this round of CHoW ( my entry included) but if you are the one pointing that out, than you just have to be in the position to do so.

    Because: yeah you are a good conceptartist ( I underlined before, that you are way better than I am ) BUT there is nothing really special to these concepts of yours, you have a anubis in an Egyptian setting, the raptor looks like straight out of warhammer ( an older version of the table top) , the first guy in your portfolio has a dish-like thing on his back as seen in many movies concerning egyptian-like seetings, this green avatar of nature-like guy has some elements that are one on one from a knight that is also a part of warhammer, you have some sort of Ice-Queen having ICE-Weapons and ICE-pauldrons ...and so on ..

    The thing here , there is no problem in helping out somebody with posing, colouring and other technical issues even if you arent as good as he is


    BUT
    : if you have concerns about ingenuity, THAN you have to be better yourself to point that out otherwise its very questionable

    PLUS it isnt any helpful to anyone pointing out the obvoius

    And yes save the quote but I dont see where this is any less immature.
    then again sorry if I hurt somebody that wasnt my intention

    so long

    Lol forget it kid, you're digging yourself in deeper

    Thanks for the review of my portfolio...

    Again - we're going to have to disagree, just let it go at that.

    dude i could of sworrrn that CHOW, and art in general, is FUN.
    obviously art now has rules, what is this world we live in? D8>
    seriously partisan, i don't see 2 Chow stars under your name + getting work (im sure venger is i mean)
    venger has the right to draw whatever the fuck he feels like drawing, how stereotypical it is doesnt matter, he loves what he does so he does it! and does it amazingly too!

    @ everybody - forget about it - it's derailing the thread.

    quoting a PM which I'm sending to Partisan:

    You don't have to be better than somebody to challenge their ingenuity - if you do then its going to be a very quiet forum - everyone's opinion counts, even if they're just starting out - they may seen things you may have missed.

    ok a last one from me, I never said that you have to be " BETTER" meaning technical-wise, hell there isnt such thing as "beeing better" as a generic phrase, to say something (I even emphasized that actually) you can be worse concerning techical issues and still help somebody out .

    The thing here , there is no problem in helping out somebody with posing, colouring and other technical issues even if you arent as good as he is
    ...so yes even if they`re just starting out

    And yes everybody has an opinion and everybody is free to express it, but then you have you accept that somebody may try to put your opinion to the test.

    And then again maybe you should try not to be offended and pull the "yeah STFU kid"-card. Because the thing I tried to state is that igenuity isnt such a thing as pure drawing skills .

    And if he has concerns about a lack of ingenuity, then it does matter if his own portfolio is stereotypical

    venger has the right to draw whatever the fuck he feels like drawing, how stereotypical it is doesnt matter
    And concerning rules, obviously there is the rule that have to have stars under your name and earn a living by conceptart to disagree with someones opinion

    Today 02:09 PM
    ryanoir dude i could of sworrrn that CHOW, and art in general, is FUN.

    seriously partisan, i don't see 2 Chow stars under your name + getting work (im sure venger is i mean)
    so far , i have to agree with Venger that its derailling the thread, and arguments obiously dont help to make a point.

    so lets just enjoy CHoW, again my apologies to all of you

    so long
    Seb
