Some key ideas..I decided to finish the rest in the final.
Hi Everyone. I had a doodle for this one. Went for a buddist thing what with the reincarnation stuff.
Some blogging - http://tomercs.blogspot.com/

Weee, I've never done a ChOW before! So exciting!
Anyways, here is just what I've generated as an idea and I hope to work up a sketch for the final piece/pose. I wanted to go alien (so I did, haha) and felt that a Keymaster would be an ascetic of sorts... forsaking everyday life things for the sake of the keeeyyyss~ Yeah. The keys themselves will all look the same to the untrained eye.. BUT, that's the idea of the Keymaster being able to see the truth, eh? So if the elements aren't apparent in the keys, then I want to eventually incorporate them elsewhere.. perhaps in tattoos on the skull/head thingy.
Also, I plan on compensating for balance issues this dude would have. he looks like he's going to fall over!
Can't wait to see everyone's final stuff!
back to chow, back to back to chow. no really I've never finished a chow before. hope I'll make something semi-finished in 3 days. if I do, I'll add paint and hopefully colour to my sketchbook first time in ages...
nudity: really like your concept and the style! hope to see you elaborate or polish on it!
alo: awesome et look! love seeing bold et interpretations!
cumquat: absolutely adoring! so cool! don't let the bg be #ffffff white just.. make some off-white or dimmed tone bg so the concept stands out especially with that white beard.
VictorQ: wow! 1, 11 and especially 12 are so cool! hope you get around to pick one and render!
Pixeltuner: great costume! makes me realise I can't get away with just some buddhist robes or mine will lack design!
well farmers just sprayed the fields with pig manure so it's time to sleep, or I won't be able to when they're done. here's sketch so far:
hey guys, there's definitely some awesome stuff around here!
Well today I kinda tightened up the lines and started designing the masks(feeling a bit overwhelmed right now like I always do to myself). The overall idea is that each key is being holded by it's respective god represented by it's mask (the key will be kinda hanging off the masks, still gotta do that) and the chain will be linking all the keys together.
Also can't really decide between some stuff like the overall tones and the hair style (not sure if it's boy or girl, but maybe I'll keep something undefined to give it a weird twist). But I guess I still have tons to do so I better not be held back by too much detail =p
anyway, I'll be following everyone works and maybe pull off a crit every now and then. To work!
