    Awesome stuff everyone!! Heres what i got going still very sketchy. My postman delivers condensed matter to dispensaries on distant planets in order to be re-engized. So its pretty much like the gun in Megamind lol.

    Didn't plan on trying this one at first but I got a sketch down, not sure if I'll have the time to finish it due to me working weekends and just starting, but hopefully

    Was thinking a speedy scout type character who takes out an threats from long range before moving in to deliver.

    wip

    this one is a fun one. =)

    obviously the clockface will be hand drawn, probably spiraling, and the second wheel is likely to be filled with space, galaxies, stars, etc. ....Might do a swap so the bigger wheel is the space one though.

    A little more work, zeroing in on done. I always seem to paint things too tall. I keep squishing elements vertically to compensate.

    Probably one more night's worth of painting to do, touchup and cleanup.

    Parsakoira, yours is my fave so far!

    Oh yeah and the tag line is 'Delivering victory one letter at a time' I found it on some old war poster

    Artfix: loving the light and look of this

    ShehZ: Nice. I reckon you could push it more into the realms of sci-fi though with a rocket powered scooter. I'm thinking Jetson the mofo up! And remember the brief says his job is dangerous

    The Original: I think you can compose this better as the recipient seems to belooking at the postmans robotic crotch. Maybe have him more at eye level. I think it would be cool if the message was projected like R2 does in Starwars Ep4

    Tbaldree: nice drama and values

    Partisan: nice

    Blackrobin: nice

    Chicoblue: Looks like the sone of Boba fett and Karl Ruprecht. Sweet

    A bit more progress. Hopefully I will move away from Ironman, though I kinda like the idea of him looking a bit Buzz Lightyear. Once I start working on the look of it and the paint job hopefully his vocation will be a bit more obvious. I'm thinking wing transfers on the helmet and some kinds bugle emblem

    it's interesting to see everyone's sketch process, some of you guys are seriously fast workers. shyamshriram looking forward to seeing your finish.

    here's my concept, I went with the idea of 50's style Americana, pipe smokin' dads, happy housewives, etc. Typical for me I spent way too much time on the drawing, hope to get painting before ChoW's over

    some reference

    Grey: Beautiful line art. The alien housewife is hot! I reckon you could bring the ship a bit closer, even if it intersects the planet. And you'll need to make sure you're showing at least three quarters of the post dude, it's the law! If you change your BG perspective ever so slightly lowering the vanishing point this may help

    @Twig I like your concept and the gesture. I like how your postman is actually doing something instead of just carrying something. His job seems important!

    @Untouched This is cool! I love how you word this, he takes out threats from long range. Nice gesture here too.

    @Steve I dont think I understand your concept but I'm glad you're having fun

    @TBaldree Nice image here. The tote is swinging a bit too much for my liking. It looks like he might lose it! And since hes not running, it seems like it would be hanging more normally. Also, maybe there should be some fire in front of him and the tote? The path looks cleared ahead of him pretty convienently.

    @The Original I like the mood here. The robot is delivering a message of doom?? lol. Make sure that figure is looking up at the robot.

    @Artfix Fantastic! No crits for you!

    @Shehz Nice composition with the sweeping smoke and diagonal figure. My concern here is that he looks like he's lost his mind? What is the story exactly--try to clarify it with his facial expression. Also, it looks very very dangerous the way he's right in front of the engines like that.

    @Geb Hope you get to finish

    @FilRam I like the painterly quality of it so far. The box shape of his chest is awkward looking. Is that a slot in it like his chest is a drop-box? If so, this needs more clarification why he has such a strange chest. Maybe some stickers and text or an arrow pointing to the slot?

    @Nikola This guy looks so friendly!

    @Grey I also thought this alien housewife is hot lol. The postman's head might be just a hair on the small side? I agree--bring the rocket closer. Oh and I don't think you can spend too long on the linework, especially if you use line art in your final images.

    Sorry to anyone I missed--I was just doing this last page of people I saw.

    Awesome Chow! Looking great everyone!

    Immediately thought of my mailman when I read the topic, based this character off him. Still got some details to work out with the backpack and think i may mess around with his knees. Hope I can finish in time.

    Intergalactic Postman

    In the intergalactic age, we don't have letters anymore. Anything that requires transmission can be done in a variety of ways...

    Unless... of course, we're talking about some secret stuff. Some secret and important stuff that needs to be hand delivered. And that would be something people would kill for too. Or it could be just a simple message.

    In which case, they call in the "Postman".

    Postmen get jaded quickly, if they don't get killed first. So our guy has his parcel locked in his parcel locker unit (PLU), which forms part of his armour. Nobody really knows what's in the PLU. To get that pack, they may have to sever the postman right shoulder with it. Oh, if they managed to do that, the pack also carries a detonation device if the wrong combinations are keyed. And if all that wasn't enough, the pack could be empty in the first place....!

    This guy travels everywhere. From the dustbowls of desert planets, to the lightless ice planets, and he's required to knock down doors sometimes. He's pretty well armed. But no two postmen are alike in their weapons of choice. In this case, our guy's got a bazooka canon to help knock down difficult doors.

    I might crop this to focus more on the mailman and leave the alien and its ship out. Right now it's more a scene than a character concept. I do consider his truck/ship part of the character though.

    In my concept, the known Galaxy is so vast that signals take many years to reach their destination. The IGM or IGMS "trucks" however, are able to quickly travel from one sector to the next thanks to their advanced warp tech. Once within the sector, the IGP transmits the messages from his vehicle just outside each planet's orbit and directly into the recipients' computers.

    This data transfer is very secure, so the only way to intercept the messages or prevent it from reaching its recipient is to remove it directly from the IGP's computer.

    Amazing topic....
    Good work everyone... So many excellent drawings/paintings...

    @Mitze - It really reminded me the atmosphere of movie "Serenity". The future "wild-west" kind of universe..

    @~Twig - Im really excited to see the finished artwork

    and .. of course i couldn't resist to try draw something too.
