CHOW #47 - VOTING - Game/Toy - No Rabbid! - ORTHO
GAME/TOY - RAYMAN - NO RABBID!
Few more days of work on Rayman Raving Rabbids - and we're done.
Check it out here!
Now... these guys are the cream of the game.
I have been seing those Rabbids for a long time now and i wanted to make a contest about them.
Initialy - i wanted to see what kind of rabbids you guys can make - but i'm affraid of copywright problems.
So... what if this game was not with rabbids... ?
CREATE A NON RABIT CHARACTER - Build the ortho.
Make it simple - see designer toys
feel free to add expressions and animation instruction.
These babies will be built 3D in the 3D contest starting next week. With a bit of luck.. we'll have them animated!
WATCH OUT THE ORTHO
I have received a lot of negative feedback about the orthos in the first run. Things from one side.. don;t hold in the other side.
I asked the 3D people to post these problems... i hope they will.
You are free to make varriants and accesories - just MERGE IT ALL IN A CHARACTER SHEET.
For more info about ortho and the 3D contest
SCULPT & 3D Challenge (in progress)
1 = Ortho.
2 = Simple
3 = Stupid
Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
(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.
DON'T VOTE FOR YOURSELF
Some very strong entries for what i call a weak round.
Please follow the 3D contest and try to assist the 3D/Sculpt guys.
I wanted a very simple round on the concepts so we can have them done 3D in a week and to have the beginners covered.
We'll to go something more complex in the future.
Thank you all for joining.
NEW PEOPLE HAVE JOINED - Thank you for choosing CHOW.
sorry for speling errs and all - time is a biatch.
AND THE WINNER IS:

Oh man, this topic looks made for me!
I'm posting a very preliminary sketch here as placeholder, I love doing cute and stupid guys!
October 31st, 2006 #3
I think I found my inspiration.
Edit: Here's a little doodle I did for some brainstorms. From left to right: blind mole rat, naked mole rat, and two star-nosed moles.
Here he is colored. I think I'll name him Nakey.
WIP of the ortho.

10PM still at the office - i managed to take a snapshot at some scribbles in my sketchbook
his name is mungo jerry
he can be painted in many ways - i made parrot out of him (on a napkin at lunch, and a spaceman, and so on)
I hope i'll have the time to detail him and to do it properly.
I gotta run now.
This should be the final week of megatrouble... so.. after this i'll be able to participate - hopefully.
I realy want to see some of this guys made 3D - textured, animated and all
I hoped we will have more entries... well.. i guess we'll get everyone back when we'l get back to monsters and chicks.
Next week is suggestion thread subject.

Watch out for TwistedTiki... Flamin Drink mon'... watch him wobble into your heart...
November 4th, 2006 #11
yes - this is a bit out of control.
DONT" forcet guys - try to make it liek a Designer Toy - -it shoul dlook interesting just as a shape. It should allow different and custom paints.
YOu should want to have it on your monitor on in your toy collection.
My doodles aren;'t good either but i was just fooling around in open canvas at 10PM still in the office.
The 3D guys aren't fooling around. The challenge is picking up more and more tallent and inertia.
Have a look at the great sculpt by Kris V12 based on cognition.sb concept.
Swing over to the 3D area and see the rest of the WIPS.
Let's not screw up their next round.
Let's give them some amazing concepts... just becoue it's supposed to be silly , it doesn't mean it's not important.
In fact i think it's harder.
entroid - one of the best starts. do it 3D (see it form sides) , try to picture it without eyes and see it in pure white plastic... see if the shapes are atractive and still funny. Also ... plan some expresions.
Moai - i think in terms of shape, it looks a bit monotonous rigth now. Make it stand out between the other toys from the desk.
fersteger - not a designer toy, a bit mor elike Disnay character- but i read the crazyness and i like the bastard Maybe with some crazy expressions . it can turn into a great entry.
chadmango - if it will be all made of white plastik... how will you paint it? it's also more towards Disney then a Designer Toy... it' cute... no crazy attitude for now. Surely.. it hides a ton of teeth a la chups chups
Supervlieg - can;t go wrong with a monkey love it - any weapons? more expreeions for the animator? tag line ?
mike - try to clean it - do a line only version. Eventualy built it with the bezier line to have it ultra clean. Draw your grid - (see Supervlieg's - and align all the details). COncept is interesting... more spooky then crazy.. but.. it can turn out interesting.
Oblio - it sucks.lazy bastard.
Spazazo - umm.. it looks like a rabbit.
Woodlandwalker - self portrait again ? clean and nice. a bit spooky

I decided to do a cameleon-character. It sure is fun drawing cameleons, people!
I didn't have stupid enough looking chracters, but I think the one I ended with is silly enough to qualify! Hope he is also simple enough. Please let me know what you think!
I'll still add the back view and hopefully color them all. I hope he is not too detailed - I know the rabbit example is very simple, so let me know what you think.

I've been an occasional lurker on these forums for a number of years but this is my first post. I'm going to try to start doing weekly design challenges with some regularity. I started this yesterday. I hope you like it.
Villaigoot are now known to occupy crawlspaces and attics of suburban homes in lowland areas of northern and eastern Pennsylvania. They are generally nocturnal, so infestations can easily go unnoticed for months or even years; making themselves known only when the colony becomes so overpopulated that the sick and old are cast out to make way for the new. These palsied outcasts will then often be found huddling uncomfortably close to sleeping occupants of the house, or coughing wetly while holding unwrapped food items they wish to share.
His fur certainly isn't so smooth as the average designer vinyl toy, but I think it could be done, and the design does draw on a similar proportion and shape language.

It's a mad, mad world, but not with Inverted Irwin.
i'll see if i can pop some values into this, but if not, it's black white and reddddd for ya.
November 6th, 2006 #19
fun round peeps!
i voted for super v - good face and posture.
dragon4lunch - yeah, i used illustrator to get my shapes done quicklike....i work in this app all the time, made sense to go this route. only had a few hours to wrap this up, so i had to be efficient.
nice web site, btw! sheesh!
November 6th, 2006 #20
cant go wrong w/that pink money Super... WTG...
cant really provide any crits, as this was my first ortho... some seemed a bit detailed... but hey the 3d guys need to improve their skills to right?!? hehe
Good Job to all.
November 6th, 2006 #21
I'm so sorry I couldn't finish mine, my weekend just flew out the window I'm pretty sure I'll finish it for myself though.
Anyway, voted for Chuck for making such a lovable and sweet creature and for subtle squid, that mad looking goat is just stellar!
November 6th, 2006 #22
Good job everybody.
just wanted to point out to the admin that redehlert's name and my name are misspelled in the poll. Don't think it matters much, its still pretty clear
November 6th, 2006 #23
entdroid, we can vote for multiple people? In that case can I add votes for redhelert and supervlieg. I already voted for chuckmate
November 6th, 2006 #24
+V subtle squid - great characterisation! Love the tiny limbs, fat neckless body and uneven eyes. Classic.
+V redehlert - Very amusing concept and cool presentation. Simple but effective.
dragon4lunch - love the typo'd sign - Great touch. Nice render, too.
November 6th, 2006 #25
hey subtle squid - thanks for the verbal vote! btw, dig that web site of yours! sweet! you've got incredible skills.
ok...enough ass pats....back to the grind.
and thanks for all the support folks!
November 6th, 2006 #26
Love subtle squid's entry - gave it my vote.
Hmmm, I know one has to be careful with comments like this, but I am surprised at how few votes my chameleon construction worker is getting. Is it technically or simply design-wise that much weaker than the two leading entries? Critiques and comments welcome!

Voted for Subtle Squid. I love the stupid expression on the goats face. great job!
Also liked the entries by Dragon4lunch, Chuck, mate and Redehlert. Btw Redehlert, did you notice if you rotate the head 180 degrees, it looks very much like entdroid initial design. Like they were family!
November 6th, 2006 #28
hahaha....yeah, i must have been consumed by the entroid spirit.
nothin' quite like family. c'mere entroid....give uncle dave a hug. ha!
dragon, i like your piece and would have voted for it if i was aware of the multiple votes scenario.
November 6th, 2006 #29
Don't worry Dave, I forgive you, I know my little creatures have an addicting scent *hugs*
