    CHOW #358 :: The K9 King :: FINALS

    CHOW #358 :: The K9 King :: FINALS

    Character of the Week #358
    The K9 King

    Deadline - Sunday, August 10th 10PM GMT

    A parade is held every year at the kingdom of Woof. All the people of the kingdom show up to cheer on the participants. The most anticipated participant in the parade is the king him self. He always shows up in such shiny armor, it is a grand sight to see.

    This week you need to design the K9 King in Shiny Armor!


    The Guidelines:
    • Must be HUMANOID/k9
    • Must be wearing shining armor
    • Must include the kingdom insignia (of your own design), on a flag/banner which the king carries.
    • You MAY do a queen instead if you wish
    • Background's Permitted, but don't forget what the focus is!

    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!

    Love these mean and moody canines!

    Artka: I like the painterliness, very solid, great light values
    Robotnic: great pug character and logo!
    hugoaroujo: very regal and strong character, like his drapery and sparkles
    Jason-Fowler: good armour
    Bri in the shy: awesome textures
    Fuzion Predator: one mean character! very solid

    Was fun
    This king is a terrier at heart, and someone just threw the Royal Ball
    The motto means 'Very Good Boy', unless Google translate has let me down

    Nice entries everyone. It was fun I enjoyed painting it, not happy with the final result though... too bad I had to use a proxy to access the website once again, but oh well.

    Artka: Dude killing it both here and in COW!

    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!

    @Artka: Fantastic image this round! I really appreciate the quality of your image in all aspects, form, style, lighting, overall rendering. You're an inspiration no doubt!

    My vote went to Artka. Amazing style, concept and execution.

    I really liked Fllamjr's entry as well!

    Bri in the Sky, yours would have been a contender for my vote as well. I could tell you had a compelling concept, but the image was so dark I could barely make out the image. I think it might help to brighten your values: using pure black only in choice places as an accent to draw the eye.
