Character of the Week #352
Steampunk Storm Chaser
Deadline - Monday, May 19th 10PM GMT
Storm chasing is just a hobby to some people, but then there are the serious pursuers of danger who seek to harness the power of the storms. Equipped with a large pack, to attract a lightning strike, it's meant to hold the energy produced from the storm, like a battery. This energy is used to power their facilities. One strike is free power for a week, but they must keep up with the chase!

We are now on a new server, again. But as a result of the move, we DID lose some posts in the finals thread. PLEASE REPOST YOUR FINAL ENTRY!
Here's my entry!
Great work everyone, there are some amazing works here
some great entries here
okay so this is my take on this week's CHOW: a Native American harpooner ready to "fish" a lightining into his belt (for the 3rd time hahahaha)
and the WIPs
This man has discovered how to harness the power of lightning. He seeks out the most violent and dangerous storms in the world so he can accumulate and experiment with this powerful new energy source.
This is my first time entering any challenges here, it was fun! Tough though, I'm still a novice colorist.
I’ve worked on this for 4 hours. The man’s face is inspired on Nicola Tesla portrait, the body is a study on Velazquez “portrait of Don Diego de Barberana”. The apparat on his pack it’s based on Tesla Coil, in this days built in Ohio for new study on thunders.
It looks like most of the images we uploaded to this post are missing. Should we re-upload the images ?
Poll will go up FRIDAY. I am finally able to see the new server again, so I haven't been around to see what the hell was going on.
REUPLOAD If you need to!!!!!
My image isn't showing up, so I'm reloading it just in case.
... And now the reloading won't work. Should I try uploading via URL instead?
yes, do a URL link for now. This is a very large site and a server transition takes a toll on all the features. If linking doesn't work, this will remain open until all can get their entries in.
Here it goes mine, an innocent child with a great power he doesn´t really get to know, with so many voltage in his body! Thunders appears to be a good energy for the pets he builts when his parents turn off the lights!

guys, please don't double post. You can go back and EDIT if you already posted once.
I will be closing this thread for Poll TOMORROW (5/26/14) @ 10pm GMT. The server "seems" to be finished doing what ever it was doing. So its time to close this one.
