    ChoW#287 :: The Thing Under The Bed

    Character of the Week #287
    The Thing Under The Bed

    Design the being that lives in the world under the bed

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 13th MAY 8PM GMT+1 (9PM British Summer Time)
    Check your timezone!

    As we all know, there are hundreds of different worlds out there; some accessible and other not. Some are even hidden within out own world, and can be reached through special portals, places in specific locations. One of the more common portal locations is underneath beds - children's beds to be more specific. The creatures in this other world creep through the portals at night - some are good, some are mischievous but other are nasty and want to cause harm.

    This week, we would like you to design a being that lives under your bed. Bare in mind, this is an individual character, completely unique to you and the contents found in the world under your bed.

    The Guidelines:
    • Can be any gender
    • Can be any time/setting
    • Can be any genre
    • CANNOT BE HUMAN! - It can be humanoid... but not human!
    • Consider what is under your bed... what kind of world might that create?
    • Can be either good or evil, but make sure it's clear. What is it your being wants in our world?



    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#287_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow287final.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!

    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

    Braazaaaa - master of dustbunnies from hell! And a hoarder. Also, a bit of a douche.

    OT, I really should go and have a look at whatever is under there.
    Bit scared now.

    Creaturetime!

    I've always been too afraid to look beneath my bed even in the daytime, but I can imagine it's horrible under there by now

    No, not lately, but I do love that movie. David Bowies hair for teh win! ^_^
    I am planning to give it that vibe, make him all raggedy, worn out and tough. That`s what you get when you go adventuring under my bed.
    Really...it`s super creepy down there.

    And an update. Still have to figure out the design, fix the arm, mess with his face, figure out what to put on his back etc...the works.

    Rist - Nice idea with the socks! I think it needs to be more humanoid though, like with arms and legs (maybe a bunch of socks?), this looks more like a creature than character.

    For some reason when I read the topic I immediately thought of an episode of Buffy, where sick kids are being taken at night in a hospital by a demon called the Kindestod.

    Great freaking scary episode and I think with some adjustments I can do something similar. Tim Burton / Fready Kruegerish.

    Nice topic, always fun designing monsters from under thr bed. Monsters, Inc would be a good place to look for inspiration.
    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!

    I actually think underneath my bed is a very nice place :>
    Cute cuddly candy creature should be there.
    So yeah, that is the theme of mine.

    I'll take this opportunity to draw a nasty dirty bogeymanwoman thing.
    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    Pixeltuner: Nasty niceness. She might have trouble fitting under there though

    I want to design a monster adapted to live under beds. It needs to lie down a lot or be flat. Here are some ideas for such a boogeyman. Rugtooth is my favorite so far.

    It was awsome in new and exciting ways to be sure.

    Speaking of hair, i like your character better without the hat. Looks more rugged.
