    CHOW #369 :: Modern Selene, Goddess of the moon :: FINALS

    CHOW #369 :: Modern Selene, Goddess of the moon :: FINALS

    Character of the Week #369
    Modern Selene, Goddess of the moon

    Deadline - Sunday, January 11th 10PM GMT



    The Greek gods have stayed out of humanity's affairs for quite some time now. So instead they spend their time with their own kind. But some who have always had an interest in humans still stay close. Selene, the goddess of the moon, takes on a human form and roams among us, as if she were a mortal. She is pale in complexion and has long, light golden hair. She is always marked with the symbol of the moon.


    The Guidelines:
    • Must be human
    • Must be female
    • Dressed in modern clothing.
    • Has the symbol of the moon somewhere.
    • Backgrounds are acceptable.

    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 and 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.
    • Design your character for the brief, not for your personal fetish.
    • 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!

    Good stuff guys.
    Hey Noun, your simple style is always so refreshing to me. It's a nice departure from all these heavily rendered Designs and it's great to see you take a different approach to these challenges.

    Tried lightening it a bit - I think my monitor may have been set too bright ..

    I wanted a dark witchy feel, but it was disappearing into the gloom!

    Well, I must admit I found it really hard to make modern clothing look interesting. I guess that's the point, though o.o

    Great turnout. Some that really stood out to me were

    Dayle: Low camera angle really intensifies the regal impression we get from this woman. My only gripe is that I really liked the crescent headband she used to have lol, I wish you had kept that in favor of the arm mark. But I assume it was to keep her true identity a bit more subtle which makes a lot of sense. Really like the outfit you decided to go with in the end.

    spectralspindle: Really nice color scheme, I like that you stuck with the same one even through various early drafts. Moped is an interesting asset as well. A bicycle could have possibly worked too, maybe as a subtle background reference to the iconic moon scene in E.T.

    bobtail: Probably my favorite in terms of conveying the 'goddess' aspect, with the glowing eyes and everything. Also thought the astronomy books were a clever accessory.

    surrealistic: I thought this andMoirae's were good examples of the 'incognito' approach. At first glance she appears to be a fairly normal looking person, but the black lipstick, necklace, and eye circles make her stand out enough that the average person on the street would likely do a double take. Her appearance is just strange enough to make you wonder about her identity, without going overboard.

    Moirae: It's cool how she's trying to go unnoticed pretty much how a celebrity would, with the shades and hood and everything. I also liked how you made her taller than average which is something you can't really hide. Very cool overall design.
