    ChoW#285 :: The Horror Survivor

    Character of the Week #285
    The Horror Survivor

    Design the lone survivor of a bloody and horrific event (Horror Movie)

    DEADLINE: MONDAY 23rd APRIL 8PM GMT+1 (9PM British Summer Time)
    Check your timezone!

    This week, we would like you to create the sole survivor of a horror movie. The character design needs to show how they looked before the event and how they looked at the end. You need to think carefully about what events might have transpired, what location they might be in and what timeframe the event has taken place over. Also think about the type of person the character might have been to start with and what they are like after. How did they survive? Did they fight? hide? were they protected by someone else?

    Your final image should be of how the person looked after the event, however the character sheet should include a before AND after sketch.

    The Guidelines:
    • Can be any gender
    • Can be any time/setting
    • Must be a horror story
    • The character sheet must contain both before and after designs
    • They can be any age



    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#285_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow285final.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!

    hmm, cool topic.

    I can't decide, humorously play off horror movie tropes or do something serious and original?

    Exclamation

    So I know the character sheet generally has to show at least two views of the character (ie front and back, etc). Does the character sheet for this contest have to show two views of the "before" and "after" characters or just a single view of the "before" character and a single view of the "after" character? Thanks!

    Hi, the horror movie could be invented too or should be an existing horror movie?

    Thanks!

    ok...

    Dread_Reaper The character sheet needs to contain AT LEAST, the front and back sketch of the AFTER design and the front of the BEFORE design. You can however do a full sheet for both.

    elephant´s stroke Try to think of something original as we're not looking for fan art, however you can take inspiration and themes from existing movies.

    one question, the characther must be alive? i ask this because, my idea was to make the character something like a ghost, that died in the incident, but because of the way he died he could not leave the world being trapped here in spirit, so as his mission is now to take revenge on the ones that killed him, i dont know if iam deviating too much from the briefing, or he could be like half death, or bount to this world by a machine, something on the likes of raziel from soul reaver, please confirm if i can continue with this idea or have to change it somehow

    I'd assume by reading the brief that a survivor would be alive.

    Please PM me if you'd like an individual crit.

    Here's my idea.
    This biker gave some randomer a lift. He turned psycho on her. Sadly for him, he made the mistake of damaging her bike. No one damages her bike...
    Lol.
    Anyway here's my first scribble.

    Hmm better go fix that arm length.

    I did want to try for an illustration, but maybe I should just draw her standing there instead?

    thanks eonf and prepsage, well had to change, so my new idea is a bride, who on the day she was to marry, who happens to have been at 06 june 2006 the door from hell opened in the church, killing everyone inside, and only her trough sheer determination, strengh and intellect, survived, the demons inside, of course that made a diference in her personallity, as she had to make everything to survive inside

    Inspired by the this little trinket called a Nazar which is suppose to ward of the curse of the evil eye. So my idea was some sort of curse that turns people into zombies, my character was a merchant who sold all sorts of trinkets and talismans, but now wears his merchandise (as well as other found talisman's) on his person. Believing them to ward off the curse which has claimed so many already, the before and after images are set over a period of months or even years, still haven't decided, need to work on it a bit more.

    I haven't decided what sort of catastrophe took place (I guess it will probably end up being a typical zombie apocalypse centered in a shopping center) and the only one to make it out alive was the old janitor/handyman, because he's just that badass.

    Ok, this challenges are kind of adictive! are a great way to organize the practice and to try different approachs and styles.

    The idea here is that of a hunter ( nothing to do with the northern hunter!) that is saved by an animal from the attack of a zombie, so after that he ends up being an activist fighting for the animals, he will change his mind, his clothes, his attitude to life in general. He will use a ifaw t´shirt or something like that.
    A little bizarre idea maybe but i don´t care!jeej.

    edit to upload an update.

    Before and after. The prissy civilian has to buck up after the zombie apocalypse or face a painful agonizing doom.

    And I cleaned up the sketch for inking. Something still feels odd about that sky line.

    hey all! first time posting for CHOW! I'm excited about the topic and hopefully I will be able to get this done before the deadline

    Its a luchador! So these are mainly WIP-'before' pictures and I'm still deciding on a story and how best to illustrate it in a single final image.

    I'm thinking vampires

    Somewhere in eastern Europe, a plane crashes into a forested mountainside. As luck would have it the survivors are only a couple of miles from a small village, visible at the bottom of the valley.

    The rag tag group salvage what they can and gather together for the trek, little knowing what awaits them. A distant howling prompts 'they've GOT WOLVES here?'.

    Our erstwhile survivor is an arrogant, wealthy, indolent waste of space who soon learns a lot about himself.

    Where I'm at right now, a goth teenager that went military radical, loosing a limb in the process.

    I may change my mind and go totally overboard with the 'after' design, instead of this conservative one.

    @JBurrough, i dig your idea

    @krAtul the same, very interesting.

    Very good stuff in general.

    So i changed the design to have more contrast between the before and after.... a more radical personality change.
    I like to see the process of designs, so here is mine so far. I like to do a lot of sillhouettes but i rarely end up using one and like in this case i end just sketching something and that´s it.

    Any opinion about how to improve the design or the process will be great.
    CHeers.
