    ChOW#296 :: Captain of the Guard

    Character of the Week #296
    Captain of the Guard

    Design the captain of the guard for a futuristic royal court!!

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 22nd July 8PM GMT+1 (9PM British Summer Time)
    Check your timezone!

    The next part in our countdown to the new monarch of ChOW is to design the Captain of the Royal Guard for a futuristic court.

    The captain of the guard is both the personal bodyguard of the monarch and the head of the royal army. He is a sly man who trusts no one. He is covered in scars from various battles or fights with assassins.


    The Guidelines:
    • Needs to be male
    • Far futuristic setting
    • Covered in scars



    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#295_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow295final.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!

    Futuristic's far out of my comfort zone, I was even going to wait for another prompt but I promised myself to do as many of these challenges before uni as I can.

    And would you believe I got an idea?
    For mine; He had survived countless untold horrors, amongst them assassination attempts, and even wars that decimated most of his vast armies.
    That he ascended his role and became something of a living legend amongst the universe.
    There's a new war starting up with an alien race with hopelessly advanced technology and earth's forces are on the verge of accepting defeat before they'd even started. What didn't help was their commander is rumored to be sick, lying on his deathbed a slim shadow of what he used to be. War moral is at an all time low.

    The monarch knew they'd have little chance if their war hero faded at their time of need. So he made arrangements with the most brilliant, if heavily critisised, minds of their generation to come up with a solution to have their hero command upon the battlefields again. He's still technically alive, but through the most painful means imaginable. His flesh decays but little by little, technology replaces what is lost. His current state is kept secret. Nothing matters as long as he is still able to take command.
    A hero doesn't deserve this sort of torture. Even though he still commands his troops flawlessly, he yearns for failure so that he may finally die.


    I'm going to keep sketching around. But this is going to be more fun than I thought.

    Just playing around...

    Thinking a sort of play on the whole... "History Repeats Itself" adage...

    Perhaps mankind just forgoes guns and goes back to a sort of medieval weaponry (albeit maybe some sort of modification like perhaps laser etched blades or perhaps 'laser'blades instead of gunblades).

    Hmmm this will be a fun practice.

    Found some suitably vile colours for my vile theme. (Aha, I'm joking. I will fix that all up)
    Need to get the lineart done before I get serious in the painting though. So I'll get that done first.

    Not really futuristic yet. I'm going to try and sci-fi up his armor and go a bit medieval-punk. We'll seeeee!
