    CHOW 20 - Clockwork Collosus

    ROUND #20


    PLEASE CONSOLIDATE YOUR WIPS AND FINALS INTO YOUR FIRST POST.

    CLEARLY DESIGNATE YOUR FINAL.

    DESCRIPTIONS ARE NOT NEEDED.


    -------------------------
    DEADLINE
    SUNDAY, APRIL 9
    --------------------------

    Here we are the 20th edition of our Character Creation Workshop.
    As promised i had a look on the suggestions thread and selected the first that sounded... mind tickling.
    The kudos goes to nephilim. He summoned the...

    Clockwork Collosus
    a massive, intricate, and powerful automaton. Built by a race of long dead astronauts and left on a desolate moon.

    keywords- enigmatic, intricate, massive.



    [EDIT] - Oregano is right. Please try not to make just an object. Give him a mood, feelings, attitude - make a character out of this ideea.
    Feel free to post your little story about this guy. Thx.

    nice suggestion. have something like the statues from easter island in mind. i might participate if i dont have to color it. hehe
    ok here it goes. a wip. not finished yet. wasnt i supposed to show the wip at all? need some things done onto the lower torso thats buried in the sand. and maybe add something that ensures that its a collossus.

    Dammit, I work all week thinking I got the whole weekend for myself,
    Then my brother comes to visit and brings the Flu with him.
    Now it's Friday afternoon and I have what feels like some sort of plague.
    looks like I'm gonna have to make a last minute rush on this on sunday.
    cough!

    CHOW 20 - Clockwork Collosus

    don't know if I'll get to work anymore on this before deadline.
    colors are a bit all over.

    Caption would read:let sleeping dogs lie.

    Interesting concept.

    My only caveat is that the clockwork collosus as described is not a character, but a thing. If we ad some sort of peronsality that individualizes it, then it becomes a character.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    ~Oreg.

    -------------------------{EDIT}------------------------------------
    Well, decided to take a slightly different turn on the "Clockwork" aspect. Today (the fifth) is the fifth, ah... aniversary of my dad's death. So, I was thinking about him some when I did this. Anytime you see one of those classic style rockets in one of my pieces, it's a little tribute to him. He actually built a Jules Vern style rocket ship in HO scale out of a Legg's Egg way back when. If I can ever find the thing in my mom's garage, I'll post a photo of it. It's awesome.

    ~Oreg.

    -------------------------{EDIT 2}------------------------------------

    Final. Decided to flip it. Looks better, me thinks.

    Hey Shane!....nice to see you posting bro. Hope all's going better for ya man. But yeah in essence I agree with you...if there is a name or function or name and function behind the clockwork collosus then he/she/it becomes a definitive character. I mean everyone who enters could be asked to provide those details in a single paragraph. There's my rusty pennies.

    Edit: Onionface: Just throwing this out there..don't get hung up on the literal bro. The brief is stating that this colossus was left by ancient astronauts on a desolate moon, so I doubt they would use conventional springs and cogs akin to human machinery. I think it let's you explore a greater set of dynamics.

    Daisy wanders the moon, stricken with guilt and failure, that is, if a clockwork collosus can have such emotion.
    She was a hard working giant, given 'Southern charm'. She single handedly created the colony for the makers until one day the makers started to stop functioning. She could build and build, but she couldn't stop the disease. All that remains on the lonely moon is a ghost colony and thousands of caskets for those that were buried, their red lights shining toward the heavens and into Daisy's lonely LED eyes.

    I'm in. Still at the rough stage, but i think it's launched off in th right direction.

    I think blaise's got the concept down the most accurate at the moment, looks very promising if i may say.
    Helzon, wonderful design but it's more a vehicle of some kind, and i'm not getting a good idea of the size yet. OK, since i'm at it:
    redehlert: Some nice effects (i like the little lines within the silhoutte), otherwise it's too early to tell. Could be fun to see what you come up with freewheeling like this.
    onionface: Cool. It's massive, little infernal, could become a neat pic. But i'm getting more a giant coal mining device than a lonely iron giant. You know from the Final Fantasy games, that summon monster Alexander. Your pic sorta reminds me of him. Could be a direction worth investigating?
    Mort: The lack of a clear perspective is really hurting the pic here. The idea is there, now put some composition into it.

    EDIT: nearly finished. Perhaps i'll noodle it around some more.

    OK, i'm gonna shut up now, hope you can stand all this unsollicited advice.

    Actually walnut, I think you may be closer in concept now that I've re-read the description. Can't wait to see some more entries.

    The Atlas Administrator ran the entire operation of moon 407 until they replaced him with a new operating system. His gigantic clockwork body was jettisoned on the nearby waste disposal planet. sadly they no longer use the alloys that make his massive frame and so, beaten and torn he lies there waiting to rust away. With any luck the primative native life forms will proclaim him a God, or a least, take up residence in his hollow shell.

    done

    or the remains of my poor body after i committed suicide last week..not sure which

    Wow - that's a hell of an update. Looks great. I don't have a clue how to go about doing that kind of stuff.

    I've made a bit of an update on mine as well. Gonna try to sneak in 5 minutes a day to work on it.

    Update:

    Here's my Final. Not enough time for me this week.
    CHOW 20 - Clockwork Collosus
    Abandoned by its makers, the Colossus has begun to change its surroundings. No one fully knows the motive behind its actions, but some have speculated. Some believe that the Colossus creates these monoliths to mimic its own figure, in a way creating friends. Others believe that the monoliths represent the tall buildings of the ancient civilization. Still, others believe that they are a form of communication, a call for help, to anyone who can see them. We may never know the true meaning of these formations.

    Red - Looks sweet, dude. Like an old school movie with scratched up film.

    Goran - WOW! Favourite piece I've seen from you... Tryin to figure out how you rendered it so well. It looks very precise, like the work of a 3d program, but some parts show that it's painted. Great earth textures, too.

    Blaise - nice angle to get the whole 'collosus' effect goin.
