    I like this topic a lot, but I'm not really supportive of HAVING to use a EOW piece from the last challenge, only because there are all of 4 pieces or so to use, none of which are close to being complete. I can't see one of AndrewLey, Chuck.Mate, or Trevor's characters in any of the current environments. No offense to the EODubb, you guys produce some stellar work, it's just the collab challenge didn't get much turn out, and as I said, none of them are finished enough to stick a character in. So therein lies the dilemma... no EODubb turnout, which means there is all of one almost done piece to choose from, which means no variety in CHOW, which will probably mean very little CHOW turnout... I don't want to upset or offend anyone, just calling a spade a spade. This is a cool topic and I'd hate to see it wasted.

    Okay, onto some sketchitty WIPs... I'm still trying to find that balance between Elvisness and sexiness and badassness... workin' on it, workin' on it...

    That's all for tonight I think... more to come!!

    UPDATE:
    I also went with the younger Elvis. He was way cooler and had the cowboy thing going on, which is just way the f#@k more fun imo. Anywho, here's a quick color start. I might do more tonight, but I doubt it. I also sketched up a background, but I haven't scanned it or anything, so that'll have to wait 'til tomorrow. Character description will also appear soon

    CHOW #52 - VOTING - Guest Host: xgabo. Topic: Vampire Hunter Elvis Impersonator

    Good stuff so far!

    UPDATE: Character description--

    Elvis Presley was one of the elite Vampire Hunters that kept us safe from the Prince of Darkness and his cronies, but when Dracula finally killed the King, Elvis passed his powers on to his illegitimate daughter, Jamaica. She was only a child at the time, and when her father was killed, she was taken in by one of his best friends, and the best Vampire Hunter in the world. The Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. Alas, he too could no longer withstand the powers of the Dark Prince. When Cash was slain, Jamaica set out for vengance with her great grandfather's old Winchester rifle and his 1875 Army issue Colt 45 Peacemaker. She hand made special bullets for the bastard bloodsucker. While silver bullets are enough to stop a werewolf and lesser demons, they're not enough for a Vampire. But you add some diamond powder to the mix, well then you've got a bloodsucker's demise. Keeping her father's spirit alive, Jamaica is the only true Elvis Impersonator, and the best Vampire Hunter in the biz. Dracula keeps the skulls of his foes above his throne, embedded in the wall, but two of those skulls belong to Jamaica, and she wants them back...

    Ok, since people have spoken, and I have to make a call to make this thing happen, here's the idea:

    I made a fresh environment (related to the theme) to inspire people to try the EOW/Chow combo. you are free to change it, improve it etc, and integrate your creations to it. if you prefer to use any of the other environments posted at EOW, go for it. It will be a great excercise. If you have time, you can also create your own environment related to the theme and post at EOW for you and other chow people to use.

    If you prefer to create your character without the EOW environments or your own, go for it! I prefer to see the crazy designs you guys come up without a background than not seeing them at all. But as an incentive for people who use the environments, they will have the 3 votes for following all 3 points of the brief, while people who don't use any environments only get 2.

    Sounds good?

    Here's the Environment I created:

    "Disgraceland"

    Once a humble impersonator paying homage to his idol, now a sworn freedom fighter taking up arms in the name of Rock. The King may live forever... but one thing is for certain... the Vampiric horde that has infested and destroyed his homeland won’t be!
