    CHOW 488 The Arm Wrestler (Wips)

    CHOW 488 The Arm Wrestler (Wips)

    Character of the Week #488
    The Arm Wrestler
    Deadline - Monday, June 3rd 8AM GMT


    In the distant future the intergalactic arm wrestling leagues are big money business. Massive corporate sponsorship and advertising deals make successful competitors billionaire celebrities overnight, and has replaced many other space sports as the most watched event in galaxy-wide broadcasting history.
    Synthetic enhancements are not only allowed, but encouraged, with sponsors pouring millions of space-dollars into creating the perfect arm for their competitors. This can be anywhere from super muscle enrichment, animal/alien dna splicing in specific areas or cybernetic boosters all geared for strength and torque, usually capable of several tonnes of pressure. These precision engineered masterpieces are treated by their owners as a man might treat his Ferrari, or rock star his guitar and are so expensive that only one arm is ever modified.


    • Male or female human or humanoid.
    • Must have one arm enhanced for maximum strength. (Biologically and / or mechanically)
    • Genre is sci fi.




    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!

    Hmm. This one is going to be tough for me. First thoughts are to have a pose fit for a poster with some corporate marks on the wrestler. Here are some thumbs to get the ball rolling. Not really clear which way I want to go with this yet. Possibly leaning toward a pose from the back like the second one. The 4th one is supposed to be sitting on a stool with legs off to side. It doesn't really translate, and sitting itself seems to detract from the whole super athlete vibe. I'll probably be stuck in the thumb stage for a bit. Will try another round with much beefier characters and then add some alien attributes.

    Good luck all!

    Or maybe an action pose. How to make arm wresting look like big-time spectator sport?

    Thinking of maybe going with something like this. Haven't worked out the background, but the basic idea is that this guy has just won and is taking a victory lap around the platform in front of a stadium crowd. The defeated opponent, who will be partially shown, won't be from from earth.
