    ROUND COMMENTS:

    Very cool round.
    Big WELCOME to all the new guys who joined us this week.
    It's great to see your first posts on CA are in the CHOW area.

    rejected due quality:
    CHOW #43 - VOTING - Bi-Polar Man wizo5454
    great idea man. on the technical side you should be more careful. Your entry is very hard to read - I've made it B&W for you to see - your form and values need some work. Try to go for simpler forms - a robot is a good idea, you can have it blocky and simple as shapes. It will help you set your forms, you'll see your planes and knock down your values, your perspective will be easy to nail etc. Go simple, go B&W, work careful, think twice before you stroke once. Thank you for your entry. Welcome to CA.

    Crazy... indeed.. man you have those expressions nailed right. And some parts of your concept are disturbing... The rejection is again due to technical issues.
    Your proportions are somehow random. Your original linework is piercing trough your finished part, and it's not too nice. It's too bad since i can see some really nice details here and there (back light). You should work more on your construction, and proportions.


    SUPERB ENDING FOR BI-POLAR MEN... hirst time in CHOW history.. the amazing bi-polar audience has selected.. TWO WINNERS.
    Hope to see you around again...

    The sad fate of Bi-Polar Man

    Peter Johnson was a man who had his emotions in total controll, he took great pride in this attribute and as an IRS employee it was a great asset. He lived his life comortably auditing and calculating and was pretty happy with it until one day when he audited the wrong man. Insane brainsurgent/mad professor Igor Rubowsky. One day John woke up finding himself dressed in a suit of iron on a surgents table in an empty warehouse. Two faces, one brain with bi-polar sides, two bi-polar modes, one insane killer and one over empathatic, over emotional, nice guy. John was from now on doomed to walk the earth as Bi-Polar Man.. When his right evil side of the brain was swtched on his left emotional empathatic side was sleeping and vice versa, never seeing eachother but always affecting eachother. His emotional side always started caring for things that his evil side later destroyed, so soft side morned and cried and found new things to love that was later killed or destroyed by bad side and so on.

    Description

    Jason's most commom phrase in the sanitarium was: "They want me, mom!". The doctors found that Jason was suffering from delusions of his own mind. Disturbances during his sleep. But what they didn't know is that Jason's dreams weren't made by his mind, but only the recalling of a legion of creatures who dwelt inside him. But this is not an analogy. There were creatures for true.
    So when Jason arrived at his 25th year old, the creatures, by a devilish witchcraft, opened a gate located by his solar plexus, a Chakra responsible for the connection to the material world.
    The summoning had begun. But what the creatures didn't know is that Jason's mother knew all this even before he was born. She was a great Sorcerer in her time. Jason was meant to be her son. She, then, could make a spell to do avoid him to die, and all the creatures unleashed to this world. Unfortunately, during the enchant to close the gate, one creature passed half body through the portal. Now they have to live in a symbiotic relationship.
    Jason tried harder and harder to live a normal life until his beloved girlfriend, Jessica was killed and devoured by his other self. Jason himself couldn't keep the hunger off his mind. Since then, this bi-polar man had to live a life away from civilization.

    The Count of Nightingale Manor

    “…and many authorities doubt the Count of Nightingale Manor’s existence. Despite widespread skepticism, some reliable sources (anonymous) still believe the count is responsible for the murders of several high ranking officials and iconic figures, including: former DA, Anthony Schroeder (for which Chief Investigator Philip Callahan was convicted) ; philanthropist Charles Orrington; philanthropist Tessa Goldberg; Audrey Callahan (wife of Philip Callahan) and most prolific of all, governor Simon Parker. According to anonymous sources, a great deal of the count’s supposed victims were killed at the manor. Several other figures, including the late governor and DA, were killed outside the premises of Nightingale Manor. It has been speculated that the reason for this deviation was psychological and that the count aimed “to send a message” (anon, 1957). Investigations conducted at the manor have yielded no results, though several police officers and investigators have gone missing on the premises.

    To date, there is no hard evidence to suggest a serial slayer is operating from Nightingale Manor, though there is definitive evidence suggesting a single culprit committing murders for political and socio-economic reasons, malignant in nature. Further accounts point toward…”

    Here's my attempt thus far (30 min lunch sketch!):

    CHOW #43 - VOTING - Bi-Polar Man

    (edit again!) i changed up my idea a bit... knocked back the costuming a few decades. plus it gave me an excuse to use this background i've been messing with. THIS IS MY FINAL!!

    CHOW #43 - VOTING - Bi-Polar Man
    My concept - These are the DeCosimo brothers, who market themselves as the "Bi-Polar Man" on the sideshow circuit. They are identical in appearance, but complete OPPOSITES otherwise. Anthony (on the left) is the business minded one, who appointed himself as the manager of the group, while Dominic (on the right) is the irresistable party animal babe magnet (who usually steals his brother's girlfriend...ouch!)

    Idea
    Ignes suffers from massive fits of emotional instability. These fits take him to the darkest end of manic depression and self destructive loathing to the opposite..which he refers to as 'blackouts.' Unable to talk due to scars incurred during his blackout periods, Ignes keeps a very personal friend close by, the only one who can understand how much he suffers.

    "His obsession with being completely good had driven him into practices best left alone, a fact he had become blind to. As he explored further into Martial arts, meditation, and finally rituals he came upon the idea to achieve purity by separating the evil out of himself. He failed. The darkness in his heart concentrated and became it's own being, twisting his body and taking dominance. Now, his good half, bound and controlled, serves as little more than support for the dark self."

    Eddington the Great White Hunter (and Bi-Polar man)

    Lord Eddington is an independently wealthy Englishman who has always had a penchant for hunting. He has ventured into the tangled waterways of the Amazon, seeking the jaguar, and Darkest Africa for the elephant's ivory; he has hunted wild horses upon the steppes of Mongolia and has been hunted himself by the tigers which lurk in the jungles of India.
    After all of that, what is there left to do? What creatures are there left to stalk, struggle with, and ultimately triumph over?

    Lord Eddington, uneasy in his thoughts of the complete loss of meaning in his life, turned his face southward. To Antarctica he went, and hunted seals and the penguins. Then to the Arctic he went, hunting the grizzly, the snow-owl, the narwhal, and ultimately the prize of all prizes, the vicious and deadly polar bear.

    Concept: Vivan Gotha, Keeper of Heaven - Guardsman of Hell.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Forget about Saint Peter, this is the guy we all meet when our time is due! Allthough all official instances, like the Vatican, deny any bi-polarity in heavenly creatures, Vivan Gotha has been there from the beginning. In a way they are right, since he was one of earths first men, kin of Adam, and not exactly a pure divine being. Contaminated or blessed by inhuman divine powers he became what he is now: ugly, burning and billowing smoke from one side the Guardsman of Hell guides those destined for tea time with Lucifer to their terminus! The left side of Vivan Gotha is an angel like humanoid, carrying the Key of The Gate. The Keeper of Heaven will show the few who have been chosen to sit at the Great Table, through The Gate. Vivan Gotha is divided exactly in two, if one of his limbs crosses the line from one side to the other, this limb will morph into the state of this side of the body.

    On my blog there is a play by play and a close up of the face! http://blog.piru.be/

    Idea.
    Bob is thirty years old, he's a sys monkey in a telephone company, single and he began to lose his hair.
    Mr. Tomahawk is the current president of the world, a multidemensional secret agent and pope of the rock n´roll with a aerodynamic haircut...
    Bob is depressed and pushed down by his burden. Sr Tomahawk is a euphoric titan with no limits.
