    im pretty opposed to fan art. look to others for inspiration and look at their tech. and style. copying is good for learning but posting it up as fan art is kinda dumb.someone already did it...and probably better than you. if it is inspirational art that is influenced by an artist that is cool...but jsut fan art to mimic...lame as hell..

    actually i think its a fantastic idea.. being that this is primarily a collective of professional concept artists and illustrators this is a very useful exercise and an applickable challange that ive had to face several times in my career. redesign an existing character.. ive been asked to do this several times,, or even completely redesign characters that ive designed myself.
    its not fan art,, its a challenge to take a character you consider "Good" and make it "better".
    its not something you airbrush on the back of your lowrider,, its an artistic exercise.

    im excited.

    I also agree with Lono. The new thunderdome is a floor wax and a desert topping!

    There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.

    You seem to be ignoring what people are saying and are acting terribly stuborn.

    um

    I said I see(I understand), and I said that I prefer making new characters(from scratch, aka original).

    I understand that you guys like to take existing characters and add new spins on them or make them better. Sure you do this in the industry, yah ok. I, however, would like to see original designs from the talent here, thats just my opinion

    is having an opinion = stubborn ?

    Landmate, I smell what youre steppin in. I'd still like to see your stuff.

    I think this will be a tough competition, because the trick is to not look like fan art.

    I hope you enter anyways....


    think of it like this.... one day you may have a job that requires you to revamp an older character.... hence all the 80's come backs.... though Transformers Armada can go to hell. Beast Wars owns!
