    CHoW#241 :: The Yakuza

    CHoW#241 :: The Yakuza
    Design a member of the Yakuza syndicate.
    DEADLINE: SUNDAY, April 24th 2011
    Deadline is Sunday, at 9:00 pm (GMT+1) Check your timezone!
    DESCRIPTION
    The Yakuza are a crime syndicate in Japan who have been runnng the Japanese underworld for thousands of years. This weeks challenge is to create a member of this syndicate. The illustration of the piece is just as important as the development of the character so plan your image carefully!!!. As always, images which are not well developed will not make it to the poll!

    Things to remember:
    • Think about the inllustration of the piece But do not forget the character design!
    • Can be any setting (Modern, Steampunk, SciFi, Fantasy....) but must be clearly japanese.
    • These are dark, violent and seedy people so make it clear in your design.
    • Can be male OR female
    • Only ONE character in the scene. Show the violence of the character without any other people or bodies in the image.

    Fox - nice sketch man, his sword holding arm looks a bit short, especially the forearm. i like the cocky attitude though.

    heres just a few doodles to get my brain moving again.

    been a huge fan of the site and artists around the site, for some reason I felt inspired by this topic because of my bro who got a tattoo today. Going to give this one a shot.

    Sounds like a great topic. My thought process: I doubt I'd be able to come up with a totally badass Yakuza that hasn't already been done before, so I'll probably explore the genre flexibility, similar to the Fairy-Tales retold. I'm thinkin either 1920's retro, or near future cyberpunk-ish, not sure yet. Either way, research will be key!

    I think I'll do two, male and female, and see what works best. Ideas are slowly bubbling their way into my brain
