    Character of the Week #326
    Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt

    Deadline - Sunday, May 19th 10PM GMT


    Aretmis, Goddess of the Hunt: An Olympian goddess of contradictions, Artemis is best known as the goddess of the hunt but she is also the protector of animals, fertility, and chastity. Armed with a bow and arrows forged in silver, she prefers to live with her nymphs among the forests. Although she is a hunter, there are no meaningless kills. She protects the women giving birth but strives to protect her own virginity and her followers, so she will show no mercy to anyone who betrays that boundry.

    Design Artemis, and include her silver bow and arrows. Use this link for more information on Artemis http://www.pantheon.org/articles/a/artemis.html


    The Guidelines:
    • Must be human.
    • Must be female.
    • This is a greek mythology, but it is open to modern time period. Just make sure to portray a goddess!
    • MUST include her silver bow and arrows


    Focus Challenge: Environment & Colors (Optional & not required for entry into the poll)
    • Based on what you learned about Artemis, created a believable environment where she lives.
    • Use a Tetrad color scheme. If you do not know what that is, click here!


    The Rules
    • 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 character must be visible
    • Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll
    • No photograph paint overs, must be 100% original work
    • At least two wips posted with your final in the finals thread
    • Background is optional
    • Have fun!

    I had to look up a tetrad color scheme. If anyone else wants more info here it is:
    http://www.color-wheel-artist.com/re...ar-tetrad.html

    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

    This is an awesome topic! Quick WIP, forgot the forest part, and the nymphs, so I'll probably restart it, or do some major changes. Crits are very welcome!

    Edit: Some progress

    I had a lot of fun with the last CHOW so gonna give this one a go as well

    Clothes pending... was focusing on the pose first. I'm leaving that space on the right in case I decide to add a wolf or something later.

    Hey all I've been lurking for a while and finally got the courage to submit an entry for CHow. This is what I've got so far. Any feedback is welcome ^_^

    The hands... They're the hardest part for me I'll have to fix them, and also the feet. Beyond that there's still a lot to do though! Oh yeah, what do you guys think of the throne? Are all the fixtures too much? I'm worried that it looks a bit cluttered with two pairs of antlers and two bear heads popping out of the sides In case anyone's confused, the bears each have a quiver in their mouth... Is that really weird? I don't know. Thought it was kind of a cool idea.

    ardentsideburns: The term Headshot just got a whole new meaning

    I am not a fan of Greek mythology, but I'll give it a try. Expect my crappy sketches here by the evening.

    I would like to make a clarification on the rule regarding the time period. I said it can be more modern, but we still want to see a Greek inspired design.

    After several thumbnails, I landed on this referenced pose. I sketched it out on paper first, now going in to paint it. I just need to make adjustments to the bow, its all funky like.

    An update

    Did the hands and the bear heads among other things, still need to do the feet D: They look so off.

    Downloaded a couple of textures from cgtextures, gonna use those as reference for the throne, quivers and bow tomorrow. Not sure what to do about the background and shadows

    I'm liking all of the pictures so far guys! Yours is my favourite Ded. I like the shape of the antlers and also the bow, it's really cool.

    I'm quite nervous, but I really want to participate more in those weekly CA activites

    So here's my first concept, trying to combine the forest-huntress aspect with the protecor of virginity and fertility part... tough, vulnerable, not too sexy.

    Why is it so hard to draw dynamic poses?

    Piemonster - I really like the rendering and pose. The face doesn't look feminine enough imo, I think the cheeks and nose are too male looking.

    IDP - One word; wow.

    Here is my start. Great entries so far. Got a feeling tomorrow I will start again!

    Late starting this, but had a flash of inspiration and need to do something about placing characters in their environment.

    This looks like fun, I think I'll join!
    I've decided to portray her as a young spry goddess like the nymphs she protects. Plus I figure she is very desirable if she has to fight to protect her virginity and those hot little nymphs in her forest. So I'm taking a kinda sexy "princess mononoke" type direction.
