    ChoW#282 :: Dragon Rider

    Character of the Week #282
    Dragon Rider

    Create a design for a Dragon AND it's Rider

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 1st APRIL 9PM GMT
    Check your timezone!

    In the old days, when magic was still strong, and creatures of myth roamed the world freely, there was a tribe of warriors who were raised alongside mighty dragons. The birth of one of these warriors would trigger a dragon egg to hatch, and the two would be bonded for the rest of their existence.
    The bonded pair share the same lifeforce, which allows the human to share the dragons immortality, however if one of them is killed, then both of them die.

    Warriors forge special armour out of the skin, teeth and claws their dragons shed, and because each dragon is different, each warrior's armour and weapon is completely unique to them.

    We would like you to design a warrior and their dragon. Because they are immortal, you can create a design for any era and in any style

    The Guidelines:
    • Can be any gender
    • Can be any style or genre
    • Must be both Dragon and Warrior
    • The Warrior's attire must match their dragon
    • The dragon must reflect the warrior's age (eg a child warrior will have a child dragon, and an adult warrior will have a full grown dragon large enough to ride)



    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#282_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow282final.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!

    Wow. this topic is epic.

    Let me throw some praise you mods way for continually coming up with inspiring topics.

    I haven't gotten to participate as much as I wished, but your posts always tickle the muse.
    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

    NICE! I think I'll try to do this one.
    Just finished the Inheritance cycle by Christopher Paolini. Almost identical premise to the brief.

    Any excuse to design a dragon is a good excuse for me!!!
    And as for character sheets, one or both are needed? Just to be clear...
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    The warrior is a must but the dragon sheet is optional.

    Woah, it's a good thing someone pointed out the extra sheets. Didn't know about that, guess it's been a while since I've done a CHoW. I like that it's a rule though!

    Sketchizzzz.

    Quick question Eofn: I actually want to do fullyfledged turn-around for the character this week just to have some more production art for my portfolio. I take it that it won't be necessary to add another sheet in sketch form? Just to be sure

    Awesome!

    These are the first things that went trough my mind when I read the topic:

    http://www.wizards.com/mtg/images/da...SoulSplash.jpg
    http://images.wikia.com/lotr/images/4/49/Fellbeast.jpg

    I'm in for this one for sure.

    As long as you show the development of the character then you don't need to provide another sheet, although I would recommend ad least including a back design in there to be safe
