    ChOW#299 :: Ghostly Courtiers

    Character of the Week #299
    Ghostly Courtiers

    Design the ghostly members of the royal court!!

    DEADLINE: SUNDAY 19th August 8PM GMT+1 (9PM British Summer Time)
    Check your timezone!

    We're getting really close to the big one now so we've extended this week to a two week challenge.

    The most important thing a monarch needs is a royal court, so this challenge is all about creating the court of the next king or queen. However, this court has one very special rule: All of it's member have died serving the realm.

    Each courtier is forever in the state at which they died (EG: Drowned=perpetually wet / shot with a cannon=cannon shaped hole in body)

    You need to show that the courtiers are dead, how they died, and what role they actually serve in the court (Jester, Handmaiden, Guard, Nobleman etc)

    As this is a two week challenge, you are welcome to design more than one courtier, as long as they are all presented in a single final image.



    The Guidelines:
    • Can be male of female
    • Must be clearly dead/ a ghost
    • Must show how they died
    • Must show their role within the court
    • Can be more than one, but must be presented in the same final image



    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#299_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow299final.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!

    I think I'm gonna go for a queen killed along with her court as a conquest from a usurper lord ended her rein. question is why the castle is left to her ghostly party. quick brainstorm before sleep.

    -grins- First thing that popped into my head was the idea of the ghost princes from Stardust:

    No, they are ghosts and spirits. Zombies would be reanimated dead.

    This'll be both my first ChOW entry and my first post here, so just a quick "Hello!"

    Decided to go with perhaps a less revered member of the court; the Falconer. His staff (which I intend on modifying substantially) is made of the taxidermized corpse of the poisonous Indian Cobra (avenged by his trusted Falcon companion) that poisoned him and ultimately took his life.

    I was thinking of joining this contest this week. I wonder if it has to be the royal court though? Would it be okay if I went with the imperial court? same thing, just not the court of a king, but a court of an emperor.

    As long as the premise is still the same.

    I'm gonna start by just working on these 2 maids who were beheaded by decree of the queen. She didn't enjoy how the king "treated" them.(wink, wink)

    I'll work on these some more later and redo their outfits I'm not sure but I kinda make them cute beheaded maids....(I'm weird >.<)

    Im glad this one is 2 weeks. Maybe I can actually finish this time. The last few weeks have been nothing but busy busy busy!

    So here is an idea I will be working with.

    hello

    Good afternoon all. Great start so far. Interesting how people would interpret the "ghost" part of this challenge.
