    CHOW 429 Guan Yu :: FINALS

    CHOW 429 Guan Yu :: FINALS

    Character of the Week #429

    Guan Yu
    Deadline - Sunday, June 18th 10PM GMT

    Guan Yu perhaps one of the best known heroes from ancient Chinese history.
    It is said that he once commanded a physician to operate on his injured arm whilst he drank and had dinner with friends, showing no hint of pain.

    He has also been immortalised in fiction, most notably the “romance of the three kingdoms” and been raised to the position of a deity, and is worshipped to this day. He even has an airport named after him.
    More recently Guan Yu’s worldwide fame has increased with his featuring in many video games (Particularly “Dynasty Warriors”, based on the “romance of the three kingdoms”) and films (even played by Donnie Yen).

    Generally he is depicted as having a long, flowing black beard and wearing predominantly green. He is also rarely without his legendary weapon the “Green Dragon Crescent Blade” (sometimes blue depending on translation) which is a type of Guandao with a dragon design.

    We would like you to redesign the legendary general in absolutely any genre you wish,
    but infuse a flavour of ancient Chinese design to your character. (Even if you choose space opera, etc.)

    - Male or female human / humanoid
    - Regardless of genre chosen, designs (costume, etc) must be inspired by ancient China.
    - Wields a recognisable interpretation of his iconic “Green (sometimes blue) Dragon crescent blade”.
    - Open genre, sci fi, fantasy, etc.

    The Rules:

    - FINALS: Must post in finals thread before the deadline
    - KNEES UP: Must show at least 3/4 of the character, from at least the knees up.
    - FRONT VIEW: Must be able to see the front of design. No back views without a front.
    - WIPS: Must show at least 2 work in progress shots with final entry.
    - READABLE: Design must be readable, as in a 3D model could be made from your image.
    - ONLY ONE: May only submit one entry. No multiple submissions.
    - 3D: Must be originally created models, excluding primitives. 3D paint-overs permitted. If you choose to use 3D in whole or in part you must show a screenshot of the model in 3D software with final entry.
    - UNACCEPTABLE: These are not permitted: Photos, photo paint-overs, photobashing, pre-made or purchased 3D
    , rushed works/ rough sketches.
    - NEW USERS: Must submit entries by 6pm GMT on due date, due to's moderation process:

    - DESIGN: Design your character for the brief, not your personal fetish. Nudes without some design are not permitted.
    - READ: Read through the threads; there may be answers to your questions already posted.
    - FUN: Have fun!
