    CHOW #359 :: The Fairy Racers :: FINALS

    CHOW #359 :: The Fairy Racers :: FINALS

    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!

    I wanted to do a little more with this one, maybe shake up the design a little, add in some different highlights/light-sources, but I'm happy with what it is now.
    I just got a brief for a summer, pre-term project for college, so I've been inundated with work the last few days, lol, and will be for the next few, so I can't work on it from now until the deadline. But what can I say? Needs must and all that. It's as finished as it needs to be, anything else would be experimental.

    Some great work this week from everyone else. Nice to have something non-violent to paint, eh?

    Please look at my Sketchbook

    The final entry. I focused more on the move of the character rather than the actual design. The helmet was partly inspired by bees, the rest are....well, random. Personally, I prefer more the WIPs but anyway I hope people enjoy this. Not a bad theme overall, I have never designed fairies etc so this was a good practice.

    CLOSED!!!!!!

    Good work guys, the new challenge is up. I will release the poll soon!

    EDIT: There are a couple things that need to be noted.

    @mariofernandes: Your final image looks somewhat unfinished. One of your wips looks more polished off, so be sure that you spend adequate time on your character or it will be deemed unfinished and not make the poll next time.

    @Sushy: I already sent you a PM regarding your design. It looks too mechanical and not natural. The wings are constructed and rocket propelled. This could very well be a human wearing special rocket gear.

    @clouddreamer7: I know you wanted to put more focus on the pose, but this challenge is about character design. So you need to be spending time designing a good character as well. The pose and anatomy are important but that's only part of it. This is a 2 week challenge so there is plenty of time to make it.

    @FUZION PREDATOR: Interesting design, but part's of it is quite unclear. From first glance, it looks like another propulsion type of design, which would count as a vehicle because it is the device doing the flying, not the fairy, and thus disqualify your entry. There are things that don't really make sense and hurts the character over all. I think next time you do something complicated like this, it would be a good idea to show the mechanics of what it is you made. Like close up shots of how it works and what certain parts are for. Leaving an unclear design in the future will count against you and potentially not get you into the poll.

    Thank you for the pointer Havok Reed! I'll be more meticulous next time.

    Great work everyone. I found this subject matter quite challenging, great to see all the interpretations.
