    CHoW#242 :: Royal Wedding

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY, May 1st 2011
    Deadline is Sunday, at 9:00 pm (GMT+1) Check your timezone!
    DESCRIPTION
    A royal wedding is always a big, fantastic celebration with more money spent than sense. From fabulous gowns to majestic military uniforms, everything is bigger and better with a royal wedding. This week's challenge is to create either the Bride, the Groom or Both members of the wedding party for a Royal wedding. 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....)
    • Royal wedding vary from country to country so make sure you research carefully.
    • Can be Either the bride OR groom OR Both
    • Can be from any time, country or culture, but the design MUst BE VERY CLEARLY a royal design.



    Good luck, and be creative!

    Oh man oh man oh man! I should be working on my dominance wars entry but I think I'm going to try and enter this as well! xD

    Edit - Just wanted to quickly sketch out my concept. I want to go for a sort of African-Victorian look If I end up working on this I think I'll make it much much bigger..

    My thought on this one is that not all royal weddings are happy ones. This one is a marriage of conquest, she's not going to look vey happy about it.

    Almost done I made some snapshots while painting this to actually have wips for the finals, if I don't miss/forget the deadline again..
    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    I've not done one of these in a while and really like the brief so think I will give it a go. Probably an obvious approach to the brief but I cant stop thinking of Iain Mccaigs concept work for queen Amidala.

    Attachment 1218625

    So think I will try and create something in a similar vein, without just ripping it off hopefully. Not sure what I will do for the groom yet, but I'll just see If I can get the bride done first.

    I was thinking along the lines of a forced official wedding for political reasons. I dont know how to make the dress though, maybe I´ll just stick with the groom.
    Nice work everybody!

    Pixeltuner: I love the hair and that is some seriously wild headgear to go with it.

    LibertineM: Nice idea. The way the bride is swamped under his gown works well to make him look quite overpowering too.



    I realise I'll probably have to cut this down to a portrait canvas 1/3 of the width it is now. Got a bit carried away when I read about focusing on illustration this week. Imagining a royal wedding taking place around 2500 where western society is enjoying a revival of numerous old fashion periods, mainly Tudor and Edwardian.

    Edit - replacing the WIP with something a little neater.
