Character of the Week #354
The Future Rodeo Rider
Deadline - Sunday, June 15th 10PM GMT
As humans began to interact with other species around the galaxy, their tradition of bull riding was found to be intriguing by the aliens of other worlds. The aliens offered up their own type of "bulls" for the riders and began the new tradition of rodeos. Many different creatures were used to challenge the riders. Both humans and the aliens would partake in the game. With the new types of creatures they would ride, some necessary safety precautions had to be made.
This week you are to design the rider. Give them some updated costumes that would fit the scifi universe!
- Can be male or female
- Must be humanoid.
- The traditional cowboy hat needs to be present.
- You MAY include the beast they ride, but it is not required.
- NO environment backgrounds this week!
- Genre is Scifi
- 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 is Dacian Fick, he's a professional Rider. He's 96 years old and has had three full body replacements. His mask is used to purify the air on the various planets that he travels to, to ride. On his back he has a complex mixture of chemicals and batteries, that do everything from strength enhancements to filtering poisons and extracting oxygen.
The Ragnull, the most dangerous beast capable of riding, is native to Cesperon, a large dry desert planet about 500,000 light years from earth. The Ragnull is transported to almost every planet in the system for the Tri-games. A Quatropus, a dangerous sea creature of the Mino solar system is often place on the back of the Ragnull, which will act to anger the Ragnull. The rider also has to beware of the Quatropus since it's reach is far and powerful.
The Universal Record for rides on a Ragnull without being injured or killed is 15. Dacian is currently riding his 16th Ragnull. Wish him luck.

Don't let her sweet exterior fool you. Peppermint Jane has taught many a mutant bovine the need for humility! Armed with a sonic destabilizer and a ion-charged 1873 Colt Revolver, she'll rope and wrangle her way into your hearts! Get ready, intergalactic outlaws... This here's a rodeo queen!!! Yee-haw yai yai okitinbawanoo-oooo!

The Moison race generate an unusual radiation from their skin. Specially made swaddling is worn to protect the mount, which is often in far more danger than the rider during the rodeo should any of these protective layers come loose. The most successful Moison rider, Z'eekjrd Tekx, doesn't take kindly to his human-given nickname: "Disco Smurf".
Josiah "Hard Arm" Cole
Once a Colonel fighting for the Rebels in the the Kerrekon Rebellion, he was disgraced by a crushing defeat where in he lost both arms and was sentenced to exile from his home planet. He now drifts from backwater planet to backwater planet making a living on the Intergalactic Rodeo circuit and occasional bounty hunting jobs. he is known on the circuit as the hard arm for obvious reasons. Although given the circumstance of how he got them very few are brave enough to call him that to his face. One fool did try in a bar one night after one to many bottle or Tarigian Whiskey and Josiah Cole expressed his displeasure at the name in ways that to this day not even the most foolish drunks or hardest Riders will say Hardarm if there in the same Quadrant as Josiah.
And here's heroic number 57, James Seymore! He's one of the last of the humans left in this sport after the earth was destroyed in the Great Galactic War, and he is still one of the greatest riders out of any of the other races from the Intergalactic Alliance that are competing to this day!
Sorry Guys. I can't put the Poll up just yet. There is an issue with the forum layering and it is preventing me from accessing the poll section. I will get it up as soon as I can. In the mean time, the next ChoW is up and needs participants! Go go!
Poll is up! thanks for your patience.
@J.brownculp - Next time you should spend all of your time on the character. If there are any elements on the design that I can't read or are missing, you wont make the poll. For example: The cowboy hat you give him is barrely visible. I had a hard time reading what it was.
@Jerome S. Mordido: It's fine in this instance because I couldnt get the poll up. But in the future, please dont make a new post to add things. You can go into edit post and add them to your previous posts. Also next time, if you dont have everything submitted correctly when the topic closes, it will not make it into the poll.
