    Chow #006 - Retail Gigagiant Wherehouse Checker

    Chow #006 -  Retail Gigagiant Wherehouse Checker

    ROUND #6

    -------------------------
    DEADLINE
    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3RD
    9 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

    --------------------------

    Margaret, the Retail Gigagiant Wherehouse Checker
    Suggested Theme: Humorous

    Margaret is 35, works insane hours at the local Retail Gigagiant Wherehouse Store somewhere in the U.S. Midwest, and just wants to do two things: Write a novel, and take a vaction. Without her family.

    She has survived Black Friday – stood her ground against the onslaught of the Christmas-Sales-Crazed-Customer hordes where many of her coworkers broke down in tears or just quit on the spot. Her store manager is very happy, but she’s just exhausted after working a 16 hour day after getting up at 2am and is still expected to cook dinner for her vestigle deadbeat husband and four screaming kids (1,3,4, and 5) after getting home late to their doublewide trailer.

    Chow #006 -  Retail Gigagiant Wherehouse Checker

    Hello all,

    Love the subject. I suppose I will put myself out there first. This is a WIP so be kind, but feel free to critique. (I know the shoes suck...working on it)

    Just for future reference is this style too catoony for this website? Still new to CHOW so just wondering.

    Thanks

    nevermind being cartoony, all styles are appreciated
    that's a strong piece so far. maybe her feet/legs should spread some more.

    Hey guys - glad you like it. Just remember, as fun as they are, CHOW isn't always going to be buxom babes & broadswords.

    Rosco - that's absolutley fine. Love the style.

    I could, sadly, just get a picture of one my cousins and run a couple of filters over it, you guys would never know the difference.

    Sadly, doven, that makes two of us, though not my cousins. The topic is a little closer to home than I'd like to admit.

    Doesn't mean we can't have fun with it though.

    Or, another option is to do a serious portrait of the people affected. Explore the subject and see what you can come up with. Just because it's suggested as humorous doesn't mean you have to do a humorous piece. I imagine this could be a rather poignant character study if done right.

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    4thAngle, that is awsome. I see a whole series of horror movies based on this character...sort of a "When Soccer Mom's Attack!" kinda deal. Very nice.

    I'm hoping for a Duddlebug entry on this one, the description seems tailor made for his talents.

    Here's mine... not sure about the colours, as it looks different on different monitors at work, so some tweaking may be happening later... I might grubby her up a bit more as well...

    Guys, these are great. I love them all! Chuck,mate - saw yours yesterday at work and saw that it was animated - fantastic idea (though it's not animating at home... ) Rosco - I love the expressions, 4thAngle, having worked retail, I *know* that feeling.

    Posh, that is great - I love the guns in the photo.

    Looking great people!
