    CHOW #346 :: Insect Ruler

    CHOW #346 :: Insect Ruler

    Character of the Week #346
    Insect Ruler

    Deadline - Sunday, February 23rd 10PM GMT

    In the realm of the insect world, the societies that exist are ruled by a monarchy. There is a ruler for each type of insect and each ruler is part of The Gathering. The Gathering is where each of the head rulers meet to discuss the best interests of their people, resolving disputes, signing treaties, etc.

    This next topic is going to be pretty straight forward. Your goal is to design an insect ruler. You can pick any INSECT. I recommend you do some research if you don't know what defines an insect. If you need some examples of humanoid, reference the movies Antz or A Bug's Life. Also, backgrounds will be permitted this week.


    The Guidelines:
    • Can be male or female
    • MUST BE HUMANOID, you can mix half human, half bug if you would like.
    • MUST be insect based. Look up what insects are if you don't know.
    • MUST include reference image of insect when posting final
    • Make them look like a ruler! Don't just go generic and call it good. Push the design, give it clothes, jewelry, etc.
    • Backgrounds are permitted this week.

    The Rules
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW # and the artists username at the bottom of the image within, at least, a footer bar(TYPED, NOT WRITTEN)
    • At least 3/4 of the character must be visible. No back views are allowed without a front please.
    • 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
    • NO ENVIRONMENT BACKGROUNDS! You may use simple shapes,gradients or silhouettes
    • Have fun!

    Ahhh missed the last ChOW deadline! Time to roll up my sleeves and jump into a new one, I suppose. This is an awesome theme. I'm already leaning towards the Queen Alexandra's Birdwing, but the number of options is nearly infinite, so this is going to be a hard choice. The mantis is a great option -- look at that fabulous headdress : )

    Hmm, started focusing on moths in general (though beetles are also a great option!), then narrowed in on the very regal Hyalophora Cecropia. The grays, reds, and whites, in addition to the "fluffy" quality would fit perfectly with a Tudor style royal. Moving forward with the Cecropia Moth!

    Looove the theme! I'm thinking about having the stag beetle as my inspiration.

    Maybe the Prosopocoilus giraffa or another type of stag beetle...

    Going to try a aedes aegypti mosquito. A nasty disease spreading bugger. Initially wanted to do a pretty insect, but I feel like this will be more of a challenge.

    Some ideas. Not sure whether to go male or female with this. Any opinions?

    Oh wow, I thought that ghost mantis was a picture of an alien at first. So cool!

    I believe I will be going with the firefly. Am loving the idea of a big glowing belly, and those colors and big black, glossy eyes are inspiring.
