Teen Challenge 108: Guardian
Teen Challenge 108: Guardian
This weeks topic is guardian. You'll pick and choose what kind of guardian you want. Let your imagination run loose.
It can be a giant beast guarding the entrance to hell, a dragon guarding its hoard,
a bodyguard guarding the prime minister, a parent (yes, they're guardians too), an elite unit of jungle fighters guarding their sacred temple.
As long as it guards something it's a guardian! Go for it!
This weeks focus is palette. Yes, palette! I want to see good colour palettes,
too many people just swamp in "realistic" colours, usually ending in an eye-jarring combination of swishwash.
Yes, I made that word up just now.
Light, reflections everything has a lot to say when it comes to colours, YOU can actually make that sky purple, it happens in real life.
Study stuff, find out what makes clouds yellow, and use that knowledge in your piece. Use your brains as well as your hands!
Deadline is Sunday 20th of February, 23:59 GMT
You've got about a week from now, get working!

I should really start entering competitions. Well, here goes.
Didn't really have any ideas, so doodled for a bit. Very rough, I can concentrate on pose and such when I've decided what character to use. I think the robot could be promising, but need it to be more intimidating. Less portal, more matrix.

You probably can't see where this will be going, but all will become clear soon (ish)

Just a little idea, A mother dragon guarding her egg. Probably won't be finished as per usual

Here we are! I might touch it up a bit later, but I might not have time. So once a FINAL thread is put up, do I just post this in there? C+C is welcome, but i'm only 14 so don't go too harshly!
The Image itself is of a queen's guard, they stand around in london and look menacing. This is some kind of scifi/ steampunk take on them though, they sadly don't wear those awesome masks

Droid: hmm the left one seems most promising, but the pose is a little unbalanced/unatural, try getting some reference from great character artists such as Wes Burt, Coro, Mandryk, Jason Chan, etc. and just use them for inspiration and see how they handle the poses, and how the balance theres, good luck man! can't wait to see you develop something up
Templar101: looks cool man! i dig the design, just maybe get some reference for color/lighting next time, and just do some studys from life/photos and stuff, that'll really help your color and rendering skills, balance studys out with imaginative stuff and you'll get good quick! keep at it
AmyRainbow: looks really promising amy! please finish it! if you get time of course, also maybe try what i said to the other guys? it could help you alot
mc2094: the left ones kinda hard to read, not sure what it is, just gotta define the shapes a bit more okay? welcome to conceptart btw! and teen challenge to! hope you enter this round
gonna post mine when its at a more refined stage

My concepts based on this central character who is the guardian of the forest.
I'll probably add a bow or something the sword I found tricky to place on him

Decided to go with the robot character. Still struggling for ideas but here's a couple.
First some uber-quick thumbnails in Alchemy, and then next a concept I quite liked, might do it as an alien, mix between an creature and a machine. Ancient guardians of Earth, that type of thing.
