ORTHO - 3 eye masked mechano goblin hunter
(interpret it as you like)
It's beginning of October.
At the beginning of each month we will have an ORTHO as a request. (You need those in your portfolio.)
The orthos will be used as starting point for the monthly 3D challenge to be featured in the 3D area.
By submitting your work to CHOW this week you agree to that (your work to be available for another activity here on CA)
A good ortho looks like this (courtesy of MassiveBlack)
For info on orthos - see these threads:
1 = Mechanic parts
2 = has 3 eyes
3 = mask
4 = goblin or goblin hunter
Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
3 extra votes will be offered for the description.
(for the new people)
NOT ALL ENTRIES ARE TAKEN TO THE POLL.
(the selection is based on technical quality criteria)
ENTRIES NOT POLLED WILL RECEIVE C&C
(i really try to do this every time)
IT IS A DIFFICULT PROCESS - MISTAKES CAN BE MADE
I am trying to set this as a professional demand. I act as the client...
Oblio is always looking for feedback - If Oblio is wrong - tell him so.
Special Edition indeed.
Spectacular efforts and CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL who dared to try this.
This was realy a challenge and so many problems have arised - i am realy glad we did it.
If any of you guys want to take on and do the 3D or the sculpture too - join me in the 3D section.
It's time to ROCK that area...
i have taken all the entries to the poll this time - if i was to take only the ones suitable for a pro enviroenment.. i would have .. a very small poll.
But i wanted to encourage everyone for doing this.
I tried to do my own ortho but had no time to finish - we are few weeks before candidate master so we work the weekends
The next topik will be up very soon. Sand by...
Everyone was a winner this special round. However.. you voted and designated .. umm.. TWO like being the best.
Ladies and Gens.. i give you ChuckWadey and Hurricane . Nice pair, eh ?

When the evil wizard Ten-neardith set goblins upon the land, he'd had no idea that they'd be so successful. In only two turns of season the goblins had wiped out nearly half of the peasant population and sent the rest fleeing across the sea. To bring the goblin plague back under control, the wizard constructed a Goblin Hunter; a synthesis of corpse, iron work, magic and blades that was powerful enough to slaughter all the goblin tribes. If it, like the goblins, turned out to be too powerful, Ten-neardith could always dismantle the mindless hunter.

pfieuw, this is a toughy! Will do my best!
Grobna Kritsnok is a "Goblin Engineer". When his arm got stomped by a large orc, he built himself a mechanical arm (with the help of some captured humans, who he killed off after finishing his new arm), to stomp large orcs. Connected to the engine of the arm, Grobna's third eye watches the surroundings for pending danger. The gold mask, that he uses to look important, was stolen from a so called "Sun-god". Since his arm stomps other things dan large orcs too, he had no problem in gaining that precious jewell.
Grobna Kritsnok is the meanest little pain in the ass, with a huge mechanic arm to help him in gaining control in any situation.

Finished piece, for better or worse. Some things I'm not happy with, but I'm glad I pretty much got it done.
"It was less than a year ago that the exiled gnomes of Renwine raided a goblin camp in the middle of the darkest night of the year, and made off with their strongest warrior, bound and gagged. After a month of labor, the travelers who regularly infringed upon their territory were given a new reason to stay at home. From those who survived the trek, reports flooded into local taverns of a hideous beast. A goblin warrior, no longer recognizable, skull rended to shreds and replaced with a dull, strange dome shaped rock terrorized and hunted down any who entered the territory.
"Chain dragging from his iron collar," they would say, "he chases y'down with poles shunted through his legs, balancing on 'em like a clown but moving thrice as fast as any goblin ever should. Burnin' at his own skin as he shoots at you with that...that damned thing in his left arm, and the other soiled 'eavy with blood. Gawddamn, you ever smelled burnt goblin?"

1st CHOW for me.
Diary Entry - Date: 15/10/2206
The CHOW-44 virus had finally spread to the city of London, and its effects are causing mass hysterics. The children see the victims of the virus mutate and call them 'Goblins'. A fitting name, that i hope i never have to be called. I have been infected with the CHOW virus with a bite to my left leg already, but i was quick enough to amputate it myself after fleeing. The perfomancing enhancing drugs i take are destroying my body slowly. I have even begun losing my sight, and have resorted to using a visor with a lens hooked to my palm, to see properly. My third eye is my saviour in this chaotic city, its only a matter of time before the CHOW virus takes over. But i can't stop hunting down the Goblins... I can't give just give up...

He doesn't run much, but he's pretty good at throwing his little blade on a rope.

Hi guys! I can't believe I've never entered the CHOW before! Time to fix that! Here's some preliminary concept sketches I've done. More to follow soon!
Hope you like them!
And starting my final lines...
Close up sections because photobucket wont let me show the image full size!
WHOOPS! Forgot my description!
Grott Drexxlebang - hunter for hire!
when Grott went to see his careers adviser her was told he should be a bounty hunter. Being only 6 years old, Grott didn't realise that his careers adviser was a sarcastic drunk. Nonetheless, despite his diminuitive size, lack of speed and strength, Grott was very determined to fulfill his destiny and his parents had read far too many books on "positive parenting" to discourage him.
After a year, the only "cleaning" work Grott got was at the local swimming pool. Then one day, when he was waiting for his Mum to finish ironing his clothes, he saw a talk show about "achieving through self-improvement" and completely missed the point. Grott had an epiphany (or as close as he was going to get one anyway)! He would further his career as a hunter by getting cybernetic augmentation! Now taller, faster, stronger and with considerably more firepower, the job offers started to flood in. Sadly for Grott, his enthusiasm for the job always gets the best of him, and instead of bringing his targets back alive in one piece, he normally ends up annihilating them with his cannons.
Despite not being very successful, Grott remains cheerful and his parents are still very proud of him and are sure he will start to get some more work soon. They even hope that he one day he may make enough to pay some rent!

Whew. Hopefully I didn't overlook something.
Spikes can be removed for modeling purposes. Both sides of the body are essentially the same (apart from the arms).
Number 8 is the most superior of a series of fighters bred by goblins to join their forces.
Ironically, what was raised to be the goblins' hunter became a hunter of goblins, seeking to destroy the race that created it.

FINAL UPDATE: So I finished, and I fixed those issues with the arms. However, after seeing Sinix's work, I have to say, he is getting my vote, good work man. cognition and Gep, you guys have smashing works as well. Artdwx, you also are showing a very strong piece with a strong style.

Hmm, WIP. I'll probably throw together some simple clothing, maybe a mechanical weapon.
Update: I sat down and threw together some clothes/weapon. I think I'll just leave this as is.
A master of gadgets and the mechanical arts, this goblin always comes prepared to hunt down the most rare of game.
