    CHOW 479 Hogmanay Fire Dancer (finals)

    CHOW 479 Hogmanay Fire Dancer (finals)

    Character of the Week #479

    Hogmanay Fire Dancer
    Deadline - Monday, January 14th 8AM GMT

    In the Scottish village of Stonehaven Hogmanay (New Year) is celebrated by a procession of “Fireball swingers” who dance with burning baskets swinging from chains on each arm.

    Design a “fire dancer” (sounds better than “fire swinger” I think).

    You can be as creative as you like with this, and the flames can come from any source, not just the burning baskets I described. If you go for a fantasy theme an elven fire mage could make her own flames, a post-apocalyptic mutant cultist worshipping some fire idol could be leaping around with flame throwers and so on.

    • Human or humanoid, male or female.
    • Must be depicted dancing
    • Involves fire
    • (optional) Scottish theme

    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
    , 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'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!

    Everyone that had turned in something at the WIP thread I like so far. Bunnyhugger's first entry has amazing flow. Both entries of his are good, but the first one I like best. I hope he finishes. Nick's entry is legendary. So legendary that I had to copy him . Originally I was just going to have my girl just have burning arms, but after seeing Lege1's entry I guess I was inspired. I subconsciously drew my girl's pigtails as fire and didn't realize where it came from until I looked at Lege1's entry again... I'm like "oops, I stole from him. Sorry." Mikewest I kind of stole from too, though in my defense I was already thinking of magic arms to begin with. I guess seeing Mike's entry solidified the design idea in my head. I love the motion in Mikewest's entry. His illustration has way better motion than mine.

    Anyways, good luck everyone! If someone else turned something in the WIPS after I post this final entry, sorry I missed it.

    This turned into a worthy challenge and took a large chunk of the week to work out to some satisfaction. I learnt quite a bit straddling the lighting and working with the soft brush in ways I haven't before. Some great ideas all around from the participants!
