    Teen challenge 212: the Bonnot gang.

    Paris, December 21, 1911.
    Jules Bonnot adjusted his hat, loaded his rifle and walked towards the Société
    Générale, one of the leading banks in France,while the other members of his gang
    hanged restlessly and rather nervous on the Delaunay-Belleville, a French luxury
    car they just had stolen from monsieur Belleville himself at his workshop north of Paris.


    Task:
    Bonnot was born on October 14, 1876 in Pont-de-Roide, a town in Doubs, France. Jules Bonnot was a French illegalist famous for his involvement in a criminal gang named the Bonnot Gang. He viewed himself as a professional bank robber and tried to avoid bloodshed whenever possible. Instead he tried to outwit his target by posing as a businessman which earned him the pseudonym Le Bourgeois. The Bonnot gang used cutting edge technology like automobiles and repeating rifles, technology that wasn't available to the French police.

    The task is to design the leader of the Bonnot Gang, Jules Bonnot. Keep the historical context in mind. This character lived in early 20th century France.

    Deadline:
    Wednesday 23 April at midnight(gmt).

    Don't forget to crit each other and help each other out. I accept both traditional and digital work, but make sure that scans and photos of traditional work are crisp and clean.

    Good luck!

    I am not quite sure what you want us to do with us? just paint a picture of him? or design him in some way to demonstrate his character?

    Since this is conceptart.org, let's pretend we're on a game or film project based around the Bonnot gang. I think that would be fun

    In the topics, try to remain under 1000 wide and 800 high or sth like that. I fail at that a lot, but oh well. Your working size is up to you of course.
    Good luck

    Paint tool SAI is apparently good, and Gimp is very big as well.

    On your image, wouldn't this setup take away attention from the character?

    GIMP has an issue with newer tablets, as it won't recognize pressure sensitivity from them.
    -or at least it had a year and a half ago (that was what made me go Photoshop, I'm all for open source but I need pressure sensitivity!)
    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there's a new version out. :/

    I've never used either of the ones I suggested. I really like photoshop for it's versatility, but that would mean you have to get it first.

    See my logic was to maybe create a scene, but I guess it is asking for a character design... oh well back to square one!

    Hey scutterback, I'm fine with you making an illustration of the scene as long as the focus is on the main character.
