    Word a month challenge!

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to propose the Word a month challenge! Each month a word is chosen, and the participants are to come up with a piece based on that word. It can be interpreted in any way you like. Genre, etc is up to you!

    If we all can come up with a piece, that is great enough to put in our folios we can all be winners!

    The first word is.... KNIGHT!

    Entrys due on the 1st of next month.

    Thanks

    Hey this word of the month sounds great. I started my illustration. Still needs color and a lot of detail, but it's a start.

    Haha, I don't know if it's that good, but thanks for the compliment.

    I can't wait to see how yours turns out Ads. It was getting lonely in here, being the only one that submitted so far.

    That's a great pic Kaiser. I think it definitely could use some color, but otherwise it's a great illustration. I really love the helmet on the guy and his axe is amazing!

    Hi, I hope you don't mind if I participate. I saw this today and felt like doing something.
    I see nightfend has already advanced it is really nice.
    I have been working in this for an hour now and its late and I am tired so I stopped for now. But I decided to post it because I think the proportions are really weird and I am not very used to draw using the tablet, so I was hoping for some critiques.
    I will edit the post later to put up the final image.

    Word a month challenge!


    Cheers

    Starship?

    Hey, I am a regular at Creature of the Week but new to Thunderdome. If possible, I might wish to partake in Word of the Month. (WOM?) Actually if it was called the Word of the Month Battle at Thunderdome then it could be called WOMBAT!

    Anyway Starship is due end of September correct?

    Yup, STARSHIP pieces are due at the end of september!

    The more the merrier.

    As for "WOMBAT" gee, the image of a wombat might intimidate people! Stumpy, furry, sharp claws, lives in a hole... Sounds nasty!

    I guess I can attempt a pass at this. Who knows, maybe I'll be a regular WOMBAT contender.

    I did a drawing of a wombat for my jr. high newspaper when I was in 8th grade. I bet it sucked balls too.

    Starship sounds good, I need more reasons to do some tech/mechanical type stuff.

    nightfend

    Great image, as always. You must be published or at LEAST working professionally.

    I might just draw the Battleclass Starship SOLSTICE from my recent "Brain Stealer" Creature of the Week Entry... would be a nice tie-in.

    Hey thanks for the compliments Arteric! I have had a few illustrations published for some low budget video games, and some spot illustrations here and there. But I'm by no means a full time illustrator. Not good enough for that yet. But, that's why I'm here, trying my best to improve.

    Wow Dave that's sweet! Did you paint that in Oils? Looks really nice. I especially like the lighting being reflected into the floor from the open hatch.
