CHOW ROUND #001 - NEAR FUTURE "URBAN CORSAIR"
VOTING ENDS NOVEMBER 5TH.
Jennifer woke up one morning to a strange reversal of roles - she was the victim of a theft. A Scrat (a wildly unsuccessful splice between crow and rat) had found her dwindling stash of synthi-dogs. Unperterbed, Jennifer jumped up in pursuit, confidant that she could enjoy a double breakfast if she retrieved her stolen goods and caught the thief.

Needless to say, the response to this was slightly overwhelming. I am truly humbled. Fantastic work everyone, simply unbelievably fantastic.
Regardless of your skill level, you ALL have something to be proud of.
Good luck to you all.
Sour, you jumped the gun. For continuity's sake, I deleted your post. No offense.
Some really amazing entries on this one. The ones that caught my eye the most were Poshspice, Standing, al-x, Interceptor, m@., lukavi, whoami, and magicgoo. I ended up choosing Standing's design as it had not only the concept of the heroine, but the whole gang sketched out below her, so you could get a good idea of the type of clothing that were worn in that time period. Nice work Standing, it's a great concept piece!
Interceptor - That's a really beautiful illustration, but it just didn't feel finished, where as others did. I like the character concept so far, though.

mejor te guardas todo eso
Despìte tjhe incredible quality of some pieces, specially Poshspice, Oregano, Sinix...and a lot more (sorry, so many goo entrys, so little time to name all the ones i liked )
I Voted for Standing, becuase the quality is as good as the bests in show, plus it made me smile, As said before, brilliant
Also it would be a really good pic for Ch.O.W´s mascot, because is enthusiastic, humorous and yet well rendered.....kinda like a style middle point.
So the winner becomes the Ch.O.W mascot, is that right?
Damn. There's one that would make a killer mascot, but didn't incorporate enough of the description.
I don't know what to do with that...
I'm not so good with the advice...Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

Holy crap! Talk about a tough vote. After scanning through them repeatedly I had to give props to Standing. All around awesome job and it made me laugh.
Artists who made me sweat over my choice- lukavi, Teigrob, scumgrinder, xgabo, Poshspice, Sinix and al-x. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Hey Oregano, you didn't use my most recent update. please replace it with the one from this post, and I think everyone would have to refresh the page to see the change. thanks

Descriptions from the artist are not necessary for this activity.Originally Posted by Firefly
KDJFHLKSJD.. oh crepe this is a hard one. off the gun id say Poshspice, bengonzalez, whoami and Sinix are my faves.. i cant choose! narrowing between that selection, id have to say its between whoami and Sinix most of all. the graphic part of me is screaming in support for Sinix.. buuut i think whoami wins my vote, mainly for sheer technical execution (no, not because it has boobies). definately has depth, solidity and movement, all stunning works but thats my final word.
Xgabo got my vote for nailing the Corsair/Parkour aspect of the requirement, she's in action. Action poses tend to stand out better - depending on the topic at hand - like this one. I wish I did mine in a similar pose. Another point was anatomy, color, and costume. Very nicely done. I think xgabo met the requirements for this week's ChOW, considering no background was necessary. It was that pose, then the artwork that got my attention.
There were others that I liked, and the diversity and variations of themes was impressive. Nice work everyone.
Wow, this was a tuff one to vote on. So many great ones. I'm just a sucker for Poshspice's girls.
But I wish I could have also voted for so many others.
Andrewley-always original and so full of energy.
scumgrinder-love the details.
sinix-really nice graphic look.
interceptor-love the comic book style and the details on the outfit are really nice.
standing-feels like you're in the middle of the story as soon as you see it.
magicgoo-another great comic style and great energetic pose.
lukavi-I love your world.
bumskee-so understated it's beautiful.
And a lot of other really nice ones here. Congrats everyone.
And Oregano - how do you find the time to organize this thing and do a great painting too. Nice work!
OMG, just realized im not even in the voting list .......dont think anybodys was going to vote for mine anyways.
Did i got disqualifyed?
No, I meant the original character description.Originally Posted by Oregano
Since the Parkour Master bit was emphasized, it seems to me like the winner should show some kind of action.
Not that I don't love your drain pipe! That's a rockin' drain pipe!

My vote goes to Standing, for a truly humorous approach! I love her expression, the action, the clear staging...marvelous. Everyone else: awesome!! Dang, I wish I could paint like you guys.. What a competition everyone, and thanks Oregano, for a wonderful contest! (pssst - you spelled my name wrong Oreg, but I'll forgive you - everyone misspells my name! )
Shamagim, I'm sorry - I goofed and put Diego in twice - it's fixed now.Originally Posted by Shamagim

hehe - we all need to sit down once in a whileOriginally Posted by Firefly
Uff, thank god, i felt like falling the whole timeOriginally Posted by Oregano
if you hadn't said Parkour, you would be winning oregano yes, that drain pipe looks nice lol Personnally I vote for Main Loop. Way to go man! Just love your entry. And yes, congratulations on most of the entrys which participated
What to pick!? So many good ones to choose from... whoami, oregano, poshspice, magicgoo, m@, morbidhumor, xgabo, vigo, andrewley and sinix just to name a few, probably forgot loads more. Now Bumskee and Standing have very strong entries imo. Solid designs backed with solid rendering. Also I agree with Shamagim in that they both made very good mascots .When I first saw bum’s I thought, now THAT’s a mascot – half covered face, firm silhouette, iconic. But from people’s posts, realized standing’s humor also makes it work (This did not affect my voting at all). Now I’m rambling... So, I thought I’d go with my initial gut reaction and go with Bumkee’s sleek approach.
Phew, damn fine show. I feel like nuking some popcorns and sitting down to enjoy the beauties. Goodjob all.
edit: just wanted to say, for a weekly, the number of entries this round is insane.

good one oregano for organising this and setting this poll up must have taken ages!!
So many damn good awsome entries.. meh.. I still haven't decided who to vote..
It's between Andrewley, Lukavi, Standing and Whoami... decision decisions.. oh, also like Sinix, m@, srcumgrinder, Posh, Oregano.. Tei, nice going.. good to see Infi and Vigo there too.. and Nutter!
man, there are so many good entries! i have no idea who to vote for. i'm gonna have to wait a few days and come back to this. it's just so overwhelming! great work everyone!
I voted for AndrewLey. I mainly just enjoy the style and design he went with... I thought his piece best represented what I personally wanted to see in the character. The zoom camera phone is simply a great and original touch... the stylish designer clothes with a hint of traditional pirate flare and a kneepad all add alot of character. I prefer to think in a crappy society, kids will turn to crime to try to get a taste of wealth, glamour, and materialism.. which is why I felt his captured the concept the best.
Phew, anyway, everyone brought alot of strong stuff to the activity, so some other quick comments and praise:
Oregano, poshspice, jakkas, bumskee, orcatraz, lukavi, and main loop all were on my short list. (haha, I keep adding names.. there's just a ton of quality work, I know I'm leaving some nice ones out)
Whoami - I really like how the character meshes with the environment.. the clothes rendering is great.
m@ - yay, I'm a definite fan of your speedpaints, start doing EOW and IDW too!
Firefly - good sketch, just wanna give a quick crit, you placed the ear a bit high and back. Feel how your cheekbone comes back around your skull, the top of the ear should be about on that.
Alright, enough typing... great job people, lookin' forward to the next one.
Between lukavi, al-x, and VirusArtist, this is a very hard decision!!! So, I'm voting for VirusArtist, just because there's something about it that really grabbed me. It's really simple, really action-packed, and bald chicks rule
And, to those who gave them, thanks for the complements!
oh man. this is a difficult one. all the entries rock. it's needless to say which entries stole the whole show (gonna say them anyway). andrewley, scumgrinder, poshspice, sinix, lukavi....
well I'm in between sinix and lukavi. they are both so original and fresh. curse you both!!!! guess I'm voting for sinix.. this whole ch.o.w. thing is the greatest!!!
