    ChoW#231 :: The Intergalactic Postman




    ROUND #231:: The Intergalactic Postman


    DESCRIPTION


    The Intergalactic Postman


    The intergalactic postman... His job is to deliver important messages all over the galaxy. The people don't know whether to be happy to see him or beware; not all his messages are of the positive kind. And then there are the people who'd rather not have him deliver certain messages at all and try anything to stop him... The job of this intergalactic postman is adventurous but very dangerous!

    Design the intergalactic postman

    • Can be male or female
    • Setting is sci-fi
    • Think of the type of messages he delivers (digital? Personal letters? Political?) and incorporate this in your design
    • Being a postman is dangerous, so think of ways he can protect himself!


    Good luck!

    Haha, I had the same setting-crossover in mind


    @ shyamshriram looks great and really dynamic even though she's standing still.

    logistic puppet I like the top left sketch best, looks like he's been through dusty deserts and the roughest areas of the universe!

    Tawnos I agree, thx for the advice.

    This dude is prity notorious all over the universe for getting his messages to people, regardless where and who they are, no matter what the cost. Because of this he is occasionally hired to deliver messages in the form of death to those unlucky enough to be on his list. If you are to ever get a visit of this postman, just pray its a good message because there is no escape.

    @ClaretCrab - Very nice! I really like those pants, although rendering them with all those folds might be...interesting?

    Ok, my take. Not original by a long shot. I`m going for a very retro inspired promotional poster thingy, and hopefully it will match my "Barbarella" ChOW, so I have a nice set of these 2. I predict a lot of fishbowl heads ahead...

    so first swift sketch about 10 min max most of that spent on figuring out the perspective ( not yet disclosed but close to what I want ), and I will name the guardian "Brown" as the slogan of UPS is " What can brown do for you ? " ...and yeah this way it will have a different meaning ^^

    A quick sketch of what I was thinking. Mr Pixeltuner let me know if its too similar to your thoughts, I was going for a futuristic biosuit / high-tech jetpack postwoman.

    By all means go for it. I'm not really going for the jetpack anyway, but more like the high-tech Hermes wingshoes

    Parsakoira that looks awesome, I think her legs are a bit too long tho. Love her scooter thingy ^^

    here's what I got so far, not liking the head but not sure what I would like. The things behind him are supposed to be floating bags of mail. Not sure how I'm gonna make that more obvious.

    Looking for crits/feedback!

    Almost word for word... I thought i came up with the idea for a robot ally first but there it is... Guess i better come up with something else.
    Nice work, all.

    Update: a rough image to share. Maybe some comments before i start coloring?
