    ChoW#259 :: Japanese Mecha Pilot

    Character of the Week #259
    Japanese Mecha Pilot

    -Design a Pilot for a futuristic, japanese style mecha warrior-

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 4th SEPTEMBER 2011, 9PM GMT+1
    Check your timezone!

    Here is your chance to really have some fun with some good old fashioned girls, guns and robots! Not going to give much direction on this one so that people can really just have fun with these three elements.


    The Guidelines:
    • Must be female
    • Must have a mecha
    • Must have japanese elements (Think text, iconic imagery etc)
    • Make it fun!
    • Bonus points if you come up with a design that is more than just 'semi naked hot chick'



    THE RULES
    In addition to the brief, if you do not follow these rules, you will not be included in the poll.
    • Files must be named: CHoW#259_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow259final.jpg will not be accepted)
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread BEFORE the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
    • At least 3/4 of the focus character must be visible
    • Final images must be accompanied with a basic character sheet in a separate image
Character sheets should at the very least show a sketch of the front and back of the character and a couple of early thumbnails/silhouettes.
    • Follow the brief!

    It doesn't have to be all manga-y does it?

    Nope, any style, any genre. Just contain the three elements listed. That is all .

    Does it have to be sci-fi, or standard mecha style? I've had an idea kicking around for awhile for Japanese tech creating an energy field out of the spirits of ancestors. Would look kind of like ghost samurai armor. Would that fit the brief or is it too much fantasy, not enough giant robot?

    The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
    mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all
    science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
    can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
    is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
    -Einstein

    Hey guys I think i need some help here. How do we make the woman the focus of the image when the mech has to be in it and they're much larger? Are we allowed to crop the mech signficantly?

    And how do I make my image japanese? I dunno what text and iconic imagery means?

    I really should try this because my ability with anything mechanical is just nonexistent at the moment.

    Making it "Japanese" I think means anything that relates to the Manga/Anime genre. If you google a bit, you will be able to tell what that means relatively easily.

    Other than that, I guess anything related to Japan? So from Architecture to iconography (think dragons, samurai, etc) and from language (Kanji?) to food?

    Just some random stuff that can have an association with Japan. I'm sure you can come up with better ones :p

    Making the woman the focus, some hints:
    - Perspective can make her bigger than the Mech
    - "open" Mech
    - Doesn't have to be a HUGE Mech
    - Mech shrouded in fog

    Again, just a bunch of ideas.

    Cheers!

    This puzzled me a bit too but here are some ideas:



    Also, everyone stop drawing because we all missed the deadline!

    Ha, I was just looking into some Asian face types to draw and study. Love the topic. Chicks & Robots ftw!

    Initial sketchies. Probably won't have time to work on this past wednesday, my classes will be starting.

    For now I'm stuck between the top right, the cockpit one, and the bottom one. The bottom one started as a joke, real badasses walk away from explosions without looking back.

    Hm interesting topic, definitely not my genre of choice; all the more reason I should participate this week! Especially after my crash and burn on the Riot Controller :|

    Some quick pilot thumbs. Going for a more anime/manga style with a villainess/antagonist type character. Mechas to come later.

    @jsn
    No1 is cool.
    @~baxter
    I prefer she with the blon hair, adds some more shapes to the picture. Can bee very nice with her siluette in the light shape formed by the mech
    @rayelian
    Top right composition is definitely my favorite.
    @Saleem
    I like the left.
    @Tirwa
    Very nice. Great attitude.
    @Leonhart
    Great start

    This looks interesting! And there's a lot of interesting concepts being thrown about.

    rayelian I really like the view from inside the cockpit. Doesn't really look Japanese, but the pose and environment are great, and I guess the Japanese-ness comes from the details later on.

    Tirwa Ha! That looks like a pretty dangerously large endowment there. If you know what I'm saying.

    Wow some of these are pretty great so far, and so early too...

    @rayelian: those look pretty awesome, but i think it might be nice to add some more elements into the asian feel like you did with the hair in the upper right. Also I'm getting a very Tank-girl feel from this that I like a lot. maybe its the wrenches.

    @Leoneart: I really like the exo-skeleton idea, but I think the bikini top is distracting from the feel of the mecha.

    I can't wait to give this one a try
