    CHOW #353 :: Fallen Angel of the Broken Gate

    CHOW #353 :: Fallen Angel of the Broken Gate

    Character of the Week #353
    Fallen Angel of the Broken Death Gate

    Deadline - Sunday, June 1st 10PM GMT

    It pains the higher gods to be forced to send, a once loyal guardian, to the abyss. There is no forgiveness for the divine which breaks the laws and the only mercy they receive is an eternity of servitude in the underworld. Forever trapped, as warrior servants of the vile death god. There is a broken gate which the death god sends the fallen to stand guard, so that none of the higher gods may enter and try to kill him. The angels are unable to escape and have no choice but to serve.

    The fallen angel's wings bare the scars of ill treatment and slowly become discolored. Their once beautiful complexion is now cover in wounds from being beaten by the minions of death. And they are forced to use weapons where the hilts/handles stab into their hands when held.

    This week you are to design one of these angels which is forsaken to defend the gate.


    The Guidelines:
    • Can be male or female
    • Must be humanoid.
    • Must have wings.
    • Must be carrying a weapon which bloodies their hands.
    • Genre is fantasy.
    • Background is acceptable 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.
    • Only ONE character 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!

    This one seems interesting may have to jump in on this...

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Hers my first WIP

    She was once a glorious angel but she fell from the skies and into the darkness. Her once golden armor har rusted and grown thorns and with a jagged chain she is connected to the grim weapon that she is forced to wield in her eternal pain.

    *edit* also her golden hair was cut.

    Something like that, what do you guys think?

    Hi there! Here are some ideation of the angel. An angel that was dedicated to flowers and all but made a mistake and was cast down to the gate. That is the basic idea thus far and took the Polish Hussar armor as reference and I'm still figuring out what weapons to give her.

    tsujni - Nice idea, I like the gesture. Maybe look at vulture wings for reference to see how they move when on the ground.

    Here is my start. I might google dungeons and torture for some spiky leather costumes ideas.

    Hi, this is my first post on the site, so apologies if anything goes horribly wrong!

    Here are some quick shapes I sketched, refined a few that I thought were quite interesting. No wings yet as I wanted to focus on the angels anatomy and posture first~

    Here is a continuation for my fallen angel. The wings might be more problematic than expected! Its my first time participating, so I hope I don't break any of the rules.

    Hi! This is also my first time posting and participating. I did a quick rough sketch for my concept. I was thinking of maybe the angel being tethered to the gate in some way and having her armor stripped down in some ways

    @RusselNG - I loved the thumbs, and love the colors, just try to not freeze the pose. Choose an emotion she/he is feeling, is she oppressed, or still fierce, or maybe raged by the lost of gods vision and the eternal cage? pose had to be words for a character.

    @SteffMurray - I prefer #1 just because is more dynamic than the others. Nice thing to sketch lotta poses, but you could focus on differents every time. I can't see something really wide open, ore with legs work, theire all very vertical.

    @Aonegamer - try to add some pain in him. He looks a little too much happy and strong to me =). Maybe his fierce had been bended, and so his old good looking is now compromised, not only by details (broken wings, scars, ripped clothes), but angels are spirits so his soul is the first thing that had suffered. Let us see this.

    @Dayle - I love the gray modulation, anatomy and lights study. Read my comment up here.

    @Tsujini - I REALLY love this piece. Could be finished like this and win. she's totally oppressed, and the mask looks like a very sad jokes by some joker demon. Than the idea to bind the hand to the thorned sword is great. I prefer the mask in the b/W version, and probably you could work more on the ruined wings to make this piece a little bit less sober (I love sober work but for my experience best appreciated concept are really minimal or baroque one).

    @Kritzlof - Not bad, I love the weapon. Everything is a little bit settled, rigid. Add some movement in entanglements and laces and find good references for the body rendering.

    Well, here is mine. I did not expected to find somethig good, but I'm quiet satisfied at the moment. I'll work a little bit on orange light without losing freshness, and have to work on vest, feet, and weapon. Crits are welcome, but please be tecnic as much as you can.
