    Ch.O.W. - #1: Near Future Distopian “Urban Corsair”

    Ch.O.W. - #1: Near Future Distopian “Urban Corsair”

    ROUND 1 [MASCOT ROUND]

    > Jennifer “Jumper” Rheesa, 18-25, Near Future Distopian “Urban Corsair”

    :: Description ::

    Jumper is a Parkour master thief and leader of her local urban corsair band. She is charismatic and outgoing, but can become emotionally detached without warning. Perfering to outsmart rather than kill her opponents, she is not afraid to use violence when needed and carries a homemade katana, crafted from scrap metal, to help enforce her will among rivals and enemies. She is often tired, dirty, hungry, and worried for her small band of corsairs. They may be urban pirates, but they’re also her tribe.


    DEADLINE: 9 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME
    SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29TH.


    For clarification, definitions can be found below:
    Urban/Urbanization
    Corsair - 1st definition is good.
    Parkour - Thanks crazy3dman
    Parkour Video - Thanks Juan

    You should have included this one. Or maybe I'm just out of it, but I had to look this up too.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkour

    Anyway, this looks great. Hope I have the time for it. Can't wait to see what comes from this every week.
    Please stop by my new Anatomy Sketchbook and critique the hell out of it.

    sweetness, I think it's really cool that we can now choose to either enter a character, environment or creature (or everything haha..) each week. I like this topic and if I can find the time I'll have a go at it.

    Hmm, interesting topic...

    Oregano, do we have to write a description, like in COW? Because all the details are in the brief...

    Hey Posh,

    No - as you pointed out, the description is in the brief.

    However, if you wish to embellish the description, feel free.

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    You're welcome - they were requested. Plus, we do have a large group of people who's native language is not English, so it's probably a good idea to provide clarification just in case. Hell, I constantly run across words I don't know (even simple ones) and I'm married to college leve English Instructor!

    Just a sketch for the moment - will do a render later and fix a few things

    ...btw thats a mobile phone (with 128xdigital zoom) she's holding - kind of a modern/urban replacement for the telescope.
