Teen Challenge #24: Snow Battle
Congrats to Evil_sloth for winning challenge #22, with special mention to Wolfbane for a close second, only one vote behind. Many awesome entries that round, good job guys.
Anyone ages 13-19 may submit an entry at any time before the deadline, and any medium (sans photograghy) is allowed.
Please host your image on a remote image-hosting site instead of uploading it to the CA server. This makes it much easier to transfer it to the poll thread.
Scene: Snow Battle
Figured this topic would be appropriate with all the recent unpleasant weather patterns some of us have been dealing with. Open to interpretion - the battle could be anything from a snowball fight to a full-scale arctic war, it only has to take place in a snowy location of some kind. No descriptions this time, illustrate the narrative with the image itself.
Thanks again to Keng for the topic suggestion!

About two weeks again. I don't know how busy everyone's been, but if there's enough support we could shift back into one-week deadlines. Post your opinions on the matter if you have any.

I'm for the bi-weekly format, as I have too much other stuff to do.
Considering I'm not of the regular participants, take that for what it's worth.

Stop picking my ideas when I don't have time for them :p
Hmm.. maybe I can still pull something off *looks at her to do list which stretches from one end of the room to the other ... then back again* o.0 err.. like I said, maybe...
Well, I'm not feeling too tired, I'll try to at least make it past the thumbnail stage this time.

Sounds like a great topic. Im not sure if I can get in on this one. I have a lot of animation to do, but if I work allday I should have time for this.
I'd say stick with the two week thing. Its nicer to have a long time so I can take it slow and do other studies too.

Great start Iwombat! It's not done yet is it?
BLAST IT. I was thinking about doing something like this for the That battle td thingamabob. Oh well, I'll be able to keep my mind on one track and come up with two snow battles. One for here and one for there. It killed me not to be able to be in the last one, so I will definitly be in this time. Waha. I've got no experience with snow, so its gonna be fun!

I say we keep it this way.
Instead of a weekly "watch my speedpaint" you get to see a lot of qualitywork (look @ horsemen challenge)
Nice painting btw, i like the trees

I agree with Lewis, This topic is pretty hot, and 2 weeks will give a chance to everybody... Everyone's not home at the time, and some people take some time to click the TD forum.. oh well, i say we keep 2 weeks
Lost Planet anyone ?

Don't take this the wrong way Sloth, but I'd like to see some more painted environments in your work. Looking at some of your past TC entries and sketchbook, it seems like you fall back on matte painting for most anything where you want the environment to be an important element in the piece. If you do this too much it might turn into a troublesome crutch. The added elements in the WIP here are really cool and the image is impressive, but I believe It could be much better if you took the time to craft your environment like you do with your actors.

On second look... How are the legs/wheels on that tank supposed to work? One of the legs actually looks connected to the center of a wheel and it would kinda just make the leg spin around and break if it was driving.

If you lit the tank in the FG properly, it'll pop out and many compo problems would be solved right way, just an idea...
