    CHOW 472 Rorschach Wraith (wips)

    CHOW 472 Rorschach Wraith (wips)

    Character of the Week #472

    Rorschach Wraith
    Deadline - Monday, October 8th 8AM GMT

    Rorschach: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test
    Many are the tortured souls not allowed into the afterlife. For some crime or sin, or perhaps even a self-imposed punishment for a failure during life these dead are shackled to our world, unable to move on. They manifest as ghosts and shades, either raging at the living for their tormented existence, or helping those who need it in a desperate act of penance so that one day they may be allowed to be put to rest.

    Optional: Use a Rorschach shape or ink blot / blob to inspire your design.
    I have made some example ink shapes to use in the (optional) designing of your wraith (see link). I know a lot of these aren't true Rorschach shapes, but they are, by their nature, a very boring symmetrical shape, so am allowing more randomised blobs. You are more than welcome to create your own ( these are just watered down cheap black acrylic paint blown about with a straw, or just messy daubs.) If you use these, feel free to flip and rotate. You don't have to use the whole shape either, see examples below.
    You can download various ink shapes I made from my deviantart page here: https://www.deviantart.com/gameofdol...catpath=scraps




    • Male or female ghost.
    • Chains / shackles or some instrument of binding.
    • Optional: Inspired by an ink blot.



    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 either in the wips thread or finals thread.
    - 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: Photo paint-overs, photobashing, pre-made or purchased 3D
    models
    , rushed works/ rough sketches. PHOTO TEXTURES are allowed as long as they are suitably worked into the piece and not lazily dumped on top.
    - NEW USERS: Must submit entries by 6pm GMT on due date, due to conceptart.org'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!

    This tormented soul, which feeds on the soul of dead warrior, has been dead since the cave man times and has seen many battles, which it visits after the deads are left there to rot, where in it eats the corpse and eat their soul. Occasionally some death bed warrior give up a futile fight, and that's why you see those swords and arrows in this hideous soul eating ghost's back:

    First Post! Been following other challenges for a while but never posted. Anyways, thanks for the cool topic and especially for providing those ink blots!

    Figured I'd start by just tracing a variety of shapes that popped out to me from the blot. Proportions are all way off at this point.
    I'm going in the direction of 1, 5 and 7 at the moment, I'm liking the idea of a witch's spirit. This is a fun one!

    Jpegs of under 500mb and no more than 1000px wide generally work. Try bringing it up on the support section: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/for...hp/118-Support

    You can put things up on deviantart in the meantime if you like.

    This is where I'm at right now.

    Obligatory Witch's Hat; Check. Creepy dead flowers; Check. Iron Booties from the old 'Chuck 'Em In The Pond' days; check.

    Very aware that she needs a haircut (Lopping some off the top as we speak) and I'm going to do what I can to make her more spectral and menacing.

    Liking the ideas already posted here, can't wait to see them progress! =]

    I managed to have a play with this earlier. I made my own inkblots, but it was a lot trickier to coax out interesting shapes than I'd expected.

    It was fun to try though. I used a cage transform to improve the shape of the blot. I think I'm mostly done with it, but might tighten a couple of areas (like the hands).

    edit: I've just re-read the brief and realize I'm missing elements! Back to the old drawing board...

    Yes, please do put it in the finals. I might have a go myself if there are no other in there to put up a poll in there soon.
