    CHOW #011 - Thog the Mastadon Slayer

    ROUND #11


    PLEASE CONSOLIDATE YOUR WIPS AND FINALS INTO YOUR FIRST POST.

    CLEARLY DESIGNATE YOUR FINAL.


    -------------------------
    DEADLINE
    SATURDAY, JANUARY 7th
    9 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

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

    Thog the Mastadon Slayer

    Thog the Mastadon Slayer is the hero of the tribe, heart throb of the ladies, built like a saber toothed tiger (and as friskey as one!), completely fearless (except for giant spiders, those just freak him out something serious), and none too bright.

    Dim he may be, but underneath that cromagnon cranium, a stone wheel tirelessly turns with a single purpose: bring home the Mastadon meat, with a supersized side of Giant Ground Sloth.

    Thog is not to be found anywhere without his *Club of Klunking*, provided by Thag & Sons, and sporting his spotted Stag Moose Cape and Loin Cloth (part of the Peccaries ensamble) on those cold and lonely nights during the Mastadon hunts.

    Totally Styling and absolutely stoopid, Thog the Mastodon Slayer is a true hero of the Pleistocene era!

    darth massacre - ladies? ho, you can see `em on Thog`s club there. well, some parts anyway.


    JakkaS, Define. - thanks! this one took me about 4 hours
    beginig to end, and i did it last night.
    i actually am an insomniac (doc` said so..) so i don`t sleep
    much to answer your question.

    also - here in israel it`s daytime while in other countries it`s night. so while i`m at work in the mornings i check what`s new in the threads, and at night - i draw and paint stuff.

    thanks man.
    i was thinking frazetta/bizly while painting this one actually.
    but Frank Frazetta and simon bizly are both GODS and i am merely a peasant.

    Here's a WIP. Hopefully I'll finish this, though I can't say if it will be in full color or not yet.

    thanks Azrael. there are some MAJOR talents `round here so it`s very nice hearing you say that.
    about Thog here -
    to tell the truth, i kinda gave up on this piece
    somewhere along the way.
    i wasn`t too happy with it and i got so tired i wraped it up. it doesn`t mean it`s no good (or it wasn`t posted here, i assure you..), it`s just why it looks somewhat different from my other works.

    All the work so far is showing a substantial degree of ass-kicking. I dig 'em.

    Progress 1

    Progress 2

    Final - Thog, with his Club of Klunking, stands resolutely guarding his kill, waiting for his tribesmen to come take the prized mastodon carcass home.

    @Corrick : heh, I like it so far ... Nice light.
    @masque : love the little detail ; his moose skin being held together by a fishbone.
    @Chuck : as usual, I admire your speed. not a day had passed and you came up with an idea and a good solid character. they must like you where you work.

    thanks man.
    well, the checks keep coming, so....

    where i work deadlines are CRAZY. plus,
    i just don`t like working on a piece 10,000 hours, it just
    annoys me. so i do some quick sketchs, and get it to a finished level (sort of) in about 3-4 hours or so.

    Hmm, that there is indeed. Although most of them seem to be on vacation. I recall a thread where we had around 30 entries. Sadly, that was where I pulled out some of my best work, which was squashed like a bug by the heel of some of the titans around here.

    Of course a totally unrelated job that occupies sixty hours a week, the goverment demanding a whole weekend a month and a wife that demands the rest, it is tough to put the time and detail that I would like. maybe someday though. someday....

    Misledtomisery :: I like the posture and gesture, but it may be a slight skew from the "built like a sabertooth tiger" and the "hero of the tribe, heart throb of the ladies" that the discription calls for. But then again, who knows what the mastadonians ladies are into.

    Rawwad :: nice detail, but seems a little flat. maybe some background to brighten?

    Masque :: Interesting piece from you. Nice detail and good mood.

    Icon Thog...

    I know that Neanderthals where savage…and primitive, but I thought about a character that have respect for Mammoths. Why? Maybe because they give him furs, meat, bones and finally...chance to survive. That’s why my Thog don’t looks like salivated wild dog…
    I hope you will like it.

    Cheers!
    Kuba

    My FINAL and DETAILS. [Oregano if you want, take these both to the poll]

    I'm in the middle of studying for my exams which start next monday, but I grew tired of reading and calculating and ...
    Well I guess I just had to draw something. I was doodling on a sheet of paper and decided to give it a little ink. There's a lot of mistakes here, and sure a lot could've been better done (like the shading, the hands, and so on) but I really don't have the time for a retake.
    Take this to the poll, that'll be a laugh .

    maybe it's just me, but i'm a bit surprised how many seem to have taken the brief so seriously!

    i mean, with "frisky," "supersized side of ... Sloth," "Club of Klunking," coordinated "Thang & sons" attire from the "Peccaries ensemble", and "Totally Styling and absolutely stoopid" in there, i couldn't help but chuckle.

    ah, well, guess i was in a somewhat frisky mood meself.

    good stuff showin' so far!

    artdwx, that's schweet! great control on the aquarelles!
