    Don't you love the new system? MarcoMazzoni is your bos snow.. and he has a lovely topic for you.

    __________________________________________
    Nintendo Hero made real - 12 years later

    In 1995 Nintendo of America officially discontinued the Nintendo Entertainment System and purged their stock of the console. In an oversight that would forever change the world, a new werehouse manager at the Japanese distributer acidentally cleared a batch of "prototype" consoles for shipment in the last wave. Never meant to reach the hands of the consumer, these consoles had the strange ability to bring playable characters from the games to life. By the time Nintendo was able to track down and incinerate all 800 of the anomalous consoles it was too late. An estimated 23,000 NES playable characters had materialized into our world. Due to the quantity of systems and popularity of certain games, many of these are duplicates of the same character.

    12 years have passed since the incident and the government has made all possible effort to integrate these characters into our society. While many have made the best use of their powers in our world, some still struggle to adapt.

    Your task is to redesign a playable NES character showing how they have adapted or are stuggling to adapt to the limitations of our reality. What are the possibilities of having several duplicates of one character? There are no video game villans to do battle with, but there are still many uses for heroes of extrordinary ability in our world. But remember not all playable characters are necessarily concidered heroic. for every Samus or Link, there is also a Qbert and Chef from Burger Time... or the marble from Marble Madness!

    It can be any playable character, but it MUST be from the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
    Now... concept!

    ______________

    Topic elements:

    1 = Playable NES character
    2 = 12 years later
    3 = REAL

    Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
    _____________
    Please try to save your progress - maybe a nice tutorial is comming out.
    BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. The host will make the selection.


    DON'T FORGET YOUR PRIZE! THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND WILL SELECT THE TOPIC OF THE NEXT ONE!

    And will assist me in selecting the entries for the poll. In one week we'll have a new client.Vote him now

    Oh yeah, I'm definitely going to enter this one. The toughest part will be picking a character to choose! I think that most votes will go to the person who creates a version of a well-loved and recognised character, like Link, or Mario.

    I drew this while thinking about Strider, but I don't think my "real world" conversion took him very far from his game. anh.

    ok, switched topics to Bomberman. Role-reversal: now he's working on the bomb squad, defusing instead of planting. I'll get this guy polished up on Sunday:

    bwkeough - The differences don't need to be outrageous, just plausable. I think you're on the right track.

    Helzon - That's freakin' great! He reminds me of Don Vito.

    Keep 'em comin'!

    Simon Belmont - "Bat" Hunter

    Hi. Here´s my first WIP.
    As legendary vampire hunter, Simon Belmont; the only job opportunity he could think of in 2007 was as a bat "exterminator".
    "Getting rid of those evil beasts, with holy power"... is printed in many flyers he´s handed on the streets of Bucarest. Since he always carries those good ol´ holy water bottles with him, he´s also rumored to have been practicing daytime exorcisms. House mom´s just love calling him to get rid of sometimes "non-existent" bats in the attic... wonder why that is?

    NOT a real entry, but it was the first thing I thought of. I figured I'd just get it out of my system before I start on any real picture.

    Decided to make a U-turn and do Mega Man instead. Went with something of a communist propaganda poster.

    CHOW #58 Guest Host: MarcoMazzoni. Topic: Nintendo Hero made real - 12 years later

    Mega Man (or Mega MEN, as there are over 2,100 of them) has adapted better than any of the other materialized NES characters. Despite his childlike demeanor, he is a shrewd business man. He imediately recognised the government's interest in his technology, and began selling several hundred of his bodies to them under the newly formed Mega Man Union. The Union also contracts Mega Men for combat use and their unique power-ups make them a perfect candidate for alternative fuel research. Thier price is unknown at this time, but it is believed to be somewhere in the high billions. Their incresed influence in governmental descision making has become more apparent in recent years. This has raised many red flags among government watchdogs, but many concpiracy theorists believe it may already be too late. Mega Man is already in control.

    Disregard this entry as I didn't read the brief correctly and therefore deserve to be kicked in the nuts.

    Poor old Yoshi couldn't get by, so he had a breakdown, got a sex change and started working as a stripper.

    this is all I have time for this week.

    hahaha...that's great Nutter! He did come across a little femmie. You planning on rendering that one?

    I got to hop up on this. I abandoned my T-Dome entry for lack of direction, so I have plenty of time to whip something up. Look like I've got to put in some late nights to keep up with the talent around here.

    Azrael - I wasn't going to colour him because of time constraints, but I might give him a go anyway.

    Please respect all the rules. Filenames, border, etc.
    Also... try to have ONE image as final - in this case - see that it includes the original character too (screenshot or marketing image)

    You first knew them as the Mario Brothers, the terror of the Koopa. Once in the real world, they started working in sewers. 25 years later, weed, beer and ska reagge music have changed our heroes. They are now known as the Rude Bros...

    Nutter your sketch is really cool!!!! I ve been laughing all day long!!!!!
