    CHOW #307 - Raging Elemental Colossus

    I would first like to say hello to everyone as one of the new ChoW mods, also with Quinn Simoes. We also want to extend another thank you Eofn for giving us this opportunity to be more involved with all the great artists on this forum! We hope to be able to spark your imagination and inspire you with the topics we come up with!

    We also want to bring up some minor changes to the rules for qualifying for the poll at the end of each week. As part of designing your character, we would also like to see the works in progress. Post at least 2 WIPS in the topic thread and the same 2 WIPS when you post your final. We encourage you, but not required, to also post thumbnails and share your thoughts and directions of a piece.

    Also, when submitting your final image, be sure to keep the name in the format we have been using, (USERNAME_CHOW#XXX)

    Now that we got all the technical mumbo jumbo out of the way, let the new rounds of ChoW commence!!!

    RAGING ELEMENTAL COLOSSUS
    Deadline - Sunday, November 25. 10PM GMT


    Natural disasters happen for a reason. Deep in the world, there exists powerful, colossal, beings which bring about the destructive forces of these disasters. Since the beginning of time, the earth has always been a battle ground for the elements. The disasters occur when the colossus are fighting each other. For example, an earthquake occurs when an earth colossal is fighting another or a tornado appears from a wind colossus.

    Your goal is to pick an element that ties into a natural disaster and design a colossus based on your choice. Avoid "going animal" with it to keep it to a unique character design.

    The Guidelines:
    • Can be any gender (If you decide to give it one)
    • Don't make it an animal. (Don't make a giant bird and call it good. You may use features of animals)
    • Try to indicate the type of element the colossus is within its design


    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#301_Username 
(Files with any other names such as final.jpg or even chow301final.jpg will not be accepted)
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread BEFORE the deadline
    • Follow the brief!

    Awesome! Hope I actually manage to submit something to finals this time. Probably won't have time to work around Thanksgiving though...

    Just to make sure, are we limited to the 4 standard elements, or can we incorporate any 'element' as long as we can tie it to a natural phenomenon? Was thinking of something like a star/space colossus that causes meteor showers.

    Although an Armageddon would technically be a "natural disaster," we want to keep it as something that happens on earth its self. BUT you are not limited to just the 4 elements of water, fire, earth, wind. You can go into things like ice or lightning. Or try thinking out of the box, like what would cause a famine; rot and mold destroys crops. Mold is a factor of moisture and heat. You could make a disgusting, rot, colossus. I hope that make sense.

    I'm willing to bet that it was causing too little submissions to finals thread. Though I like the idea, but to flesh out a nice character design with a character sheet and a nice illustration in a week was a bit much.

    The Character sheet is no longer required for entry into the poll. Havok Reed and I felt that the character sheet was given a fair run, and the general consensus among CHoW participants was that it was too much to fit into a weekly challenge. We want everyone to take part in CHoW and have a solid Character Design by the end of the week for entry into the poll, so hopefully this decision will encourage that.

    We have brought back the wips requirement but otherwise the rules are generally the same as before.

    If you guys have anymore questions don't hesitate to ask either Havok or myself.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's designs!

    Quinn

    lol thanks Pixel, we'll fix it!

    @MasterTroglodyte: He makes mud slides! Those are pretty devastating.

    Just a quick silhouette, to get an idea down. I might try for water on my next one.

    Welcome, new mods. Hopefully removal of the character sheet stipulation will bring a lot of people back to Chow.

    On another note, I'm finding it very hard to resist making a comment along the lines of 'There is a Raging Elemental Colossus in my pants.'
