    CHOW #359 :: The Fairy Racers

    CHOW #359 :: The Fairy Racers

    Character of the Week #359
    The Fairy Racers

    Deadline - Sunday, August 24th 10PM GMT



    In the world of the fairies, the Grand Herald Fairy Tournament is heald each year, to test the skills of its participants. The most popular and rewarding of all the events are the races! Speed, among the fairies, represents high status. To win, a participant must carry a small, red baton which grants passage through each checkpoint, and reach the finish line in the fastest time. If a fairy is the FASTEST in the tournament, they not only get the respect, but they earn a special token which can be used for anything the fairy desires, but with limitations. If they wanted to become king or queen of the fairies, they could, but only for one year or if they wanted to become a human, they could, but only for one year. Evil does not exist among them, but desires do. So there are many who train in order to gain their one desire.


    Design a Fairy Racer! You can show them as the winner of the race, in the middle of a race, before a race begins or how they train, etc... Think about speed! Also note, they fly with wings, so NO vehicles.


    The Guidelines:
    • Must be a fairy
    • Can be male or female
    • Must be carrying a RED baton
    • Must be wearing their racing gear
    • 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 (minimum from the knees up). No back views are allowed without a front please.
    • Only ONE character please, no multiple submissions.
    • 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. (UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE WITHIN THE WEEKLY BRIEF.)
    • 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!

    Here's my start. It's not obvious yet, but he's sitting on the third place podium and he isn't overjoyed about it.

    I think I'd like to have a go at this one. Here are my ideas, I thought I'd want to do the mid-flight pose but I prefer the start line one now I've seen it.

    The pose is really boring right now but just playing around with design ideas at the moment.
    edit: just realized I forgot the baton... Will fix that soon...

    Here's a quick concept I whipped up. I added the dragonfly to give a sense of scale and, I'm not sure how, but I think I'm going to utilize in my final drawing.

    I've named him Volo. Trying out some graphic elements on his racing suit. Not sure if I really like them yet though...

    : If you aren't liking, you should probably start over. This is a great opportunity to create something very dynamic. Challenge yourself, don't settle for what you are comfortable with.
