    EOW #41 Serve the chow for free!

    Is it spam? No! It's the...

    EOW #41 Serve the chow for free!



    Round #41

    Topic:
    Serve the chow for free!



    Deadline:
    SUNDAY, December 3rd 2006

    What's this? Here's the deal:
    You get to make a background for next week's Character of the Week mission.
    One rule: make it a good background for a character to be presented in. Think about scale and space. This does not mean that you *have* to make it easy on them chowers.. a nice angled perspective for instance could make their lives just a notch harder, but think of the extra cowbell value!
    Be sure to give them enough light to show off their work though
    Other than that, free for all.. no set topic, medium or style.
    That means nothing to keep you from submitting an entry - they'll be watching!


    **update**
    i'm gonna leave this one open for a bit longer.. 2 entries (maybe 3) is ridiculous... Restrictions are good for inspiration/creativity i guess

    Here's 4 options to go for:

    - Glory stand (design a scene where the winner of a race/match gets his moment of glory. think sports, think unreal tournament, think vicroty speech.)

    - Elven wardrobe / changing room (design a room for a foxy female elf to change clothes in - think curvy )

    - Scifi dungeon keeper backdrop (cellblock corridor, janitor room, control room,...)

    - The Leap of Faith (right on the edge of the seaside cliffs, this spot is a all time fav for depressed jumpers. You can find it right next to the dead tree of gloom)


    get to it! deadline extended


    OBLIO EDIT: Deadline is extended again since the CHOW guys are in revolutions! They have been invited to join here too. Love thy neighbour! Kick his ass.. in art

    So if I want to draw a view of a hockey rink and a zamboni machine, they will be able to do the "zamboni driver from hell" as long as the angle is such that they can draw at least a 3/4 view of the zamboni driver, yes?

    Northern Temple

    Far to the north, amid harsh mountains and frozen seas lies the cradle of one of the world's oldest religions. Although "The Serpent of the Sun" hasn't got the largest amount of followers in the world, it is certainly the most widespread, spanning all the corners of the world. Once in their lives, every disciple of The Serpent must venture on a pilgrimage to the Northern Temple, where it is said that their god rests. The long and hazardous journey to the temple is the act of aknowledging their faith, so that one may be spared when the Great Serpent returns.

    EOW #41 Serve the chow for free!

    This is my first EOW, as well as my first (serious) attempt at painting an enviroment.
    Constructive critiscism most welcome!

    Update! Minor edit to the concept description.
    Minor changes to the pic as well.

    Here's what I got so far. If I find time I might fix it up some.
    EOW #41 Serve the chow for free!
    This is a view from the first row directly behind the home bench of a AA hockey team. I left the door open so there can either be player, stick boy, or coach going in or out. There is also the possibility of a player jumping over the boards. Ambitious people might render a face off or the Zamboni driver from hell. A Linesman (official) might be hanging around in that neighborhood calling offsides. A superfan might be in the foreground pounding on the glass.

    There are no restrictions and so it has now become impossible to draw anything. (Disturbingly paradoxical)
