    Awesome topic! Question, are we allowed to cross franchises? Master Chief as a reploid or Eggman as a heartless for example.

    I guess i'll start off the massive WIP posts. I first wanted to do shadow the hedgehog but had no idea how to do a realistic version of him. Then I tried queen Gohma and didn't like it. Then was gonna try Jak and Daxter, but decided o just go with pokemon ha.

    First sketch I scrapped, thought it was a bit boring and not the best of poses. Second one is very early, but I am liking it more already...who knows where I'll go from here. BRING IT ON BAPSI!

    Colsky: sounds like an interesting idea, waitin to see it develope further

    andrew: nice start! i see youre paying more attention to edges now looks much better. lookin forward to your final. and i think ill join the challenge with you and bapsi if thats ok. rawr!
    oh and i saw this yesterday, thought you might like it
    Attachment 1219059

    this and yours made me really wanna do megaman, but since youre already on that i wont :/

    still deciding on what to do. right now its between a pokemon (prob nidoking) and one of the enemies from the OLD zelda games for gameboy color......


    oh aaand, i feel like this topic is gonna have a big turnout, i think itd be cool to possibly make this a longer challenge so we could see people make some really awesome pieces. just sayin

    Right, i have decided to redesign feybrand from the legend of the dragoon. My all time favorite dragon. The game was good in that dragons were not typical, they varied depending on the skill. This one was marsh and poison and was almost like half spider half dragon. Should be fun.

    For those of you who have not tried this game I reccomend you do. The story is fantastic. the fight style was intriguing, although turn based it was all about timing when pulling off attacks. Anyways, yeah so feybrand woo!

    Yeah, it was just a doodle, I want to have her on a 4 armed bipedal cooking MACHINE, here's a crappy silhouette to show what I mean
    Teen Challenge 118: Video Game Character Redesign

    I just wanted to draw something cute before getting into a mammoth thing, also- the theme is so broad I support Lancer_idenoure in extending the challenge, though that certainly wouldn't help my studies x_x.

    @Colsky: I would stay away from thick blurry outlines like that and lense flares, they're hard to make look good and the thick outline obscures detail
    you might want to put in there.
    Btw, I Portal, but giving Link a Portal gun isn't really redesigning him at all, outfit wise or anything. Think about everything you imagined Link could possibly be, maybe even fuse Link with Midna or something. Link as a crossdresser would be hilarious and also probably yield an interesting turn out.

    @ Andrew Sonea I like where it's going, the pose I think needs to be stronger, the first looks a bit feminine and wimpy with that liquidy feel.
    Maybe think about a stronger silhouette?

    lancer_idenoure: You could always do a realistic Pokémon battle. Or make a mecha nidoking. The list goes on.

    Hey there Ohws!
    The Teen Challenge is open for anyone aged 13-19, a typical challenge lasts one week, sometimes longer (like this one).
    Anyone can join in at any time during the challenge (some people start the last day!) and are eligible to win as long as they post their final image in the finals thread.
    This is the challenge thread (or WIP thread) where people post their ideas and work in progress.
    Nearing the end of the challenge the finals thread will be created where people have to post their entries before the deadline.
    When the deadline is reached a voting thread will come up where everyone vote for their favorite entry.
    The winner receives a badge next to their username for their victory.

    Hope that helps!
