    CHOW #352 :: Steampunk Storm Chaser :: FINALS

    CHOW #352 :: Steampunk Storm Chaser :: FINALS

    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!

    The Guidelines:
    • Can be male or female
    • Must be human
    • Must be carrying an energy storage unit which is also a conductor.
    • Genre is Steampunk.
    • NO background this week. Follow the set of rules listed below.

    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
    • Please read through the thread for any posts made by the mod. They likely answered a question that was asked about the challenge!
    • Have fun!

    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!

    CHoW 352 Steampunk Storm Chaser by 99Chihuahuas

    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.

    Hello.
    It looks like most of the images we uploaded to this post are missing. Should we re-upload the images ?

    ... 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.
