ROUND #231:: The Intergalactic Postman
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!

shyamshriram - I like it so far!
Cool idea shyamshriram
Some rough ideas which cropped up.
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!
Now crit the shit out of me!
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.
oh hells yeah!!! ...as I do want to save the idea ...as I only start out with the drawing right now and have nothing to show yet ....*sorry*.... but my postman will have a friendly little helper that will be about 12 feet high and serves as container for the parcel and letters AND guardian as well , will be some kind of robot ! ( suprise >..> )... it will be the new and better UPS ( UNIVERSAL Parcel service )

Hey, good luck to everyone.
some scribble by me
available for freelance/long term job
@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 ^^
waddup! new to this chow business, or painting/drawing overall. thought i might give a crack at these each week as part of my learning process! this is my postman, which started as a nerd and now is going in some kind of space zombiesh-direction. any critique and/or advice is greatly appreciated
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.
A small update. Pushed idea a bit more.
Some criticism and ideas will be nice.
available for freelance/long term job
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!
Thanks... wouldn't want to step on your (or Hermes!) shoes. This is my concept / reference sheet. Look forward to seeing everyones characters.
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.oh hells yeah!!! ...as I do want to save the idea ...as I only start out with the drawing right now and have nothing to show yet ....*sorry*.... but my postman will have a friendly little helper that will be about 12 feet high and serves as container for the parcel and letters AND guardian as well , will be some kind of robot !

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