MAKE SURE YOUR IMAGE ADHERES TO THE BRIEF
This week's voting will work a little differently as the photobucket account is down, so there will be a list of finalists and you will need to scroll through the thread and pick your choices on the list. - I will also be reposting last weeks poll at the same time using the same method so it gets a full 7 days of voting.
- Can be Male OR Female
- Can be any style or genre
- Consider multiple eras when designing tech and attire
- It must be clear that they travel through TIME!
- Consider how long they have been doing this job.
- Think carefully about the weapons an assassin might use
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#277_Username (Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow277final.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!
My Time Assassin is primarily an undercover soldier. Is a decorated veteran of war (well, a couple of war) and he’s tired of his job – is close to retirement – but is still highly effective, discreet and deadly.
His most advanced weapon is the trusty AutomatiCloak®, an automatic camo system that makes our man almost invisible and it can manages to blend in with the crowd or with the landscape and manages to fit in any social class, simulating uniforms, badges and dress codes.

This is my first time doing concept art for characters and I'm not 100% satisfied and happy with my design for Time Assassin. But I can say that I learned a lot from every artist who participated in CHOW #277 and it will help me greatly to improve my thinking and drawing processes. Thank you for all of that. I'm definitely looking forward to the next CHOW project and kick its ass.
My Time Assassin tries to attack some german nazi politicians or military leaders in 1943. His futuristic gun allows him to remote control the target. His mission is to drift the war into the right direction.
Unfortunately he forgot to change his footwear after coming back from his mission in 2011 (killing Osama). Because of that mistake he got busted and killed by the nazis.
First time I've had a chance to do one of these.
In the future, time-travel is considered to be a form of sorcery and only a few possess the power. Employed assassins, usually disguised as beggars or vagrants are sent back through the stream to eliminate key historical figures and rogue Timestreamers by ripping them out of the space-time continuum completely with the 'Nullifier'.

I had less time to work on this than I was anticipating.
This guy has been wandering through time for so long that he's mostly forgotten who he really is. He doesn't quite understand how the gizmos he carries around work, but he instinctively knows how to use them, and he obeys the voices in his head telling him to kill certain people.
finally i upload the final image. Its my first post and i found this forum last week so i didn't had so much time to do it. hope next week it will be much better!
thanxs everyone and good luck!
(sorry about my poor english)
This is my final one.
My Time Assassin is currently in 1943, trying to attack some nazi military leaders and politicians. With his futuristic weapon he is able to remote control his victims and to drift the war into the right direction.
Unfortunately he forgot to change his footwear coming back from 2011 so he gets busted and killed by the nazis.
I hope next week will be better because honestly, I can say I learned a lot from doing CHOW this week. As for the time assassin I designed, her biggest advantage within her job is traveling through the portal that can be opened anywhere whenever she wanted to assassinate her target.
Here's my entry! I took into consideration Veshkau's suggestion, so I hope it wokrs this way!

There we go
Here it is! Totally ran outta time, sorry everything's just thrown together on the character sheet. The arm band is her temporal locator beacon,and there's also her totally sweet and super advanced time travel gauntlet. Shes also got bionic eyes for some extra awesome. Boots and pants are from modern day times vest future and the sheriffs star is a memento she picked up way in the past.
Edit: forgot to mention she wears that bomber jacket. (Just didn't put it on the turnaround so you could see everything under it.)

(Insert witty remark here)
Here is my Final concept. I picked specific events in time to go back to as part of an era. These were WW1, American Revolutionary War and the Battle of Pavia (Italian War 1521-1526).
In this moment she has arrived to take out a certain important figurehead of the invading army. Her clothing is a mix between WW1 Officer attire, Colonial Army and Imperial Landsknetch in addition to an advanced undersuit she uses from her own era. The eye helps her locate a certain rip in time in order to travel through it as well as helping locate the target.

Hi all! This is mine Time Assassin. Now she is in victorian era.
Hope you like it!
Thank you Artfix, any time you need a favor from me don't hesitate to just ask and i'll do my best to help you out!!!
Bit late with this, been so busy this week, but figured better late than never. Included an early sketch for a cobra-esque helm with removable blades but decided to drop it in the end.
JanJager got my vote - great take on the brief!
