    ROUND #257, Grunklins

    topic:

    ROUND#257, Grunklins

    this week my 4 year old nephew described a monster to me so i thought it would be fun for everyone to try and interpret his concept.

    here are his words...

    (warning this could be a hard round)

    "grunklins live in the snow mountains. they like it there because they could jump as high as space so getting up mountains isn't hard. they are very friendly even though people are scared of them because they have big sharp teeth as big as their head. they don't like to eat people cause they only eat candy. they're furry on their head and their legs bug the rest is bald. and they always smile cause of all the candy they eat."

    I think that's most of the parts i remember from his description. so this week we're going to take on the challenge of taking a kids thoughts and interpreting them into a cohesive concept. so just have fun with it. laws of physics and ideas about evolution go out the window this week, just have some fun.

    Requirements this week...

    - Grunklins should be able to jump very high "as high as space"

    - Grunklins should have teeth as big as their head.

    - Grunklins should have hair on their head and legs, but be bald everywhere else.

    - the rest is all filling in the blanks, so have fun and get crazy with this one.


    Deadline:

    May 2nd, 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    haha, nice one (lark! I'm actually having a mini art-block right now, haven't really drawn or painted anything since Sunday other than a few shitty sketches. So this should loosen things up and get me rollin' again!

    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!

    maybe i'll actually get some time to do this one instead of rushing it like the last one. but man all i can think of for this are gnomes, goblins and red caps.

    Grunklin

    I have been watching the COW thread for awhile now, wanting to join it. I have never felt like I had the skills required, but I finally figured out that the best way to get better is to get help. So I am giving this one COW topic a try in hopes of learning something new. Her is my WIP C.O.W. #257, Grunklins. WIPS

    Looking pretty good Jiroma, keep putting in some darker values, also I don't think they would have wings, as they jump. Maybe small wings or something, but don't cover the back legs, as thats what most real animals use to jump with. Just some food for thought, as it is open to interpretation. I like the head, its cool!

    Thank you SnailsPace, though those were suppose to be hairy arms and legs, not wings. Is there some way I can make that seem more obvious and not to be mistaken for wings?

    So, this was my first impression, Probably way to humanoid right? I did this when i started sketching last week, i was going for a half an hour before I realized I was drawing humanoids, I never draw creatures, my mind is struggling with this kinda'.

    edit:
    Jiroma, just keep defining things, I can see now what your getting at, just be careful to make sur it looks like hair i guess.

    Edit 2:

    Pixeltuner, yeah, those are the kinda back legs I'm talking about!

    first time in a while on these forums. Is this too human?
    I have a hand-in for uni in the next few weeks, so don't know if I'll be able to finish this challenge.

    Basically, this guy has a giant mouth in his stomach, with one huge tooth on the bottom used to grind up the sweets (it grinds while he walks).

    The fat is to keep him warm up in the mountains, of course. His legs may look a little stumpy, but you'd be surprised of the power they can muster up, and they have huge flat feet to put up with the huge problem of landing at high speed. His face-tusks are to help open any wrappers he comes across.
