ChoW#280 :: The SirenCharacter of the Week #280
Design a mythical Siren creature
DEADLINE: SUNDAY 18th MARCH 9PM GMT+1 (8PM GMT)
Check your timezone!
The Siren has appeared in many mythologies throughout history. They are described as beautiful women who lure men (usually sailors) to their death. They are often pictured as mermaids, harpies or simply just young, naked ladies. This week, you task is to create a totally new interpretation for these sea faring girls. Think about what they might be; perhaps creatures from the deep; A costal/sea version of the amazons; demons; maybe even aliens! They do not have to be human, although they must at least have some human female resemblance (like the sphinx etc)
IN REGARDS TO NAKED LADIES!: Obviously we would prefer it if you tried to be a little bit more adventurous and creative than just a naked woman, but due to the nature of the topic, nakedness will be allowed but only if the design for the creature's anatomy is more than just human: for example perhaps they have scales, fins or boney protrusions.
It is also worth noting that these women rely on their voices to lure men. They themselves could be hideous, but create the illusion of being attractive.
NOTE We are considering making challenges two weeks as standard to give people more time to develop ideas. If by saturday (When the finals thread gets posted), people need more time then it will be extended by another week. Otherwise this will remain a week long challenge.
- Must be female
- Can be any style or genre
- Does not need to be human or humanoid, but must have recognisable human characteristics.
- CANNOT just be a naked woman (Nakedness/semi nakedness will be allowed only if the anatomy is deemed more creative)
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#279_Username (Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow279final.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!

I have been observing this site for sometime now so I have decided to dive in with the sirens and join my first ChoW contest.
p.s. I love quick deadlines.. so a two week deadline equals one week of procrastination for me.

Had the idea to mix a siren with an harp like her own body. Still much things to do, i like the idea but not the result of the body...
Dreamers only dream, but creators bring their dreams into life.

So I've never posted on CHOW because I never finish so maybe if I start posting my WIPS I'll find the motivation.
The idea is that the figurehead statue thing of a wrecked ship comes alive and breaks free, only to sit and pine for the lost crew.

This is a silhouette for my idea... Kind of elaborating from here rather than making a proper decked out silhouette then painting over.
Mostly because I can't paint at all, eurgh.
(By the way, hi, I'm new here)
