    CHOW 480 Armless Swordsman (finals)

    CHOW 480 Armless Swordsman (finals)

    Character of the Week #480

    Armless Swordsman
    Deadline - Monday, January 28th 8AM GMT

    The winner of this round will have their entry displayed on the Chow banner for the next five rounds!

    Hmm. Not really sure what to write here, the title says it all really.

    Design a swordsman who has no arms. Do not replace them with cyber prosthetics or anything, he (or she) has to be visibly without arms. You may add extra appendages, so long as they are not where the arms should be. Eg: Gross, mutant tentacles sprouting from the stomach, each wrapped round a sword or metal claws springing from his back like Dr Octopus in Spiderman.
    You don’t have to add anything, telekinesis, holding it in his teeth or using his feet are all fine too.




    • Male or female
    • Human or humanoid
    • Has no arms
    • Wields at least one sword (somehow)






    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!

    hello guys, I'm posting on this chow after a while, and this time I'm studying a chalk-like cartoon style art. This warrior is a champion, he has neither arms nor legs. He is a winner in still wanting to fight. : ^^ ;:

    Telekenesis style swordsman. This look is inspired by old video game covers from back in the 80's and 90's.

    The process for this is pretty straight forward. I laid in a quick sketch for this one and often don't bother cleaning up the line work because it is not going to be featured much if at all in the final piece and I feel the original drawing always has more energy in it. From there I simply blocked in my colors working from the middle tones out, and just refined the image from there. The entire piece is all from imagination and I'm fully aware that the armor of the swordsman is asymmetrical, as I thought it gave it an interesting look.

    Falling out of love with that swirly background, but it's late and am calling it done.

    On reflection, does it look like a flock of birds are stealing his swords?

    Moirae: That came out great man, I like how you used the line work in your piece. I forget that we can implement line in the work that everything doesn't have to be done in straight values. I think your image does convey for the most part that the birds are taking away the weapons, but over all it's just a very cool looking piece. Very inspiring =)
