    awesome, chuck.

    this is just me messing around without actually looking at armor, bears, or anything helpful.

    maybe i'll flesh something out with references.

    Design in progress.

    And my final. I went for a little more conventional inspiration; classic plate armor wth the occasional nod to a samurai's yoroi. I considered an underlying suit of chain mail, but I figured it would be highly uncomfortable, constantly getting one's fur caught and pulled out in the links. Instead, I'm going to go with a series of gliding plates bolted to a soft leather backing. I also wanted to make something more suited to quadrupedal movement, but which would allow the character to rear up on his hind legs when necessary.

    All in all, not exactly to the level of refinement I would like, especially after a healthy dose of second-guessing by my wife, whose read the books and understands the character much better than I did. Regardless, I'm pleased overall with where I've gotten to these past six days, and I look forward to perfecting my craft on these projects in the future.

    Great topic, thanks!

    I'm new here and still finding my feet, but I'll do my best to get an entry together that doesn't make me feel too inadequate.

    Update - finally had time to make a start. Critique welcome, I don't bite.

    Update2 - final updated. I was going to put Lyra on his back and clean everything up, but I have a lot to do before Monday.
    I've enjoyed this a lot though, will definitely enter these as much as I can from now on.

    Wip it Real Good...

    I don't normally post WIP's but I'm heading to Costa Rica for a few days and don't know if I'll have a chance to finish or not so I thought I'd share the prog. I did buy Golden Compass for the trip - never read it before!

    Pizza Explosion: Awesome! Cracked me up!

    Great WIP's so far! Good luck everyone!

    Well, I will give this a try. This is my first attempt at this so I hope I do OK. Anyways, here is my WIP. Enjoy

    UPDATED: Now in INKS! Now...to color or not to color...that is the question. I am always cautious when it comes to color...it is VERY dangerous!
    CHOW #63 - VOTING - Guest Host:D-BAKER. Topic: Iorek Byrnison

    Here is my final. I don't have time to finish the colors I am working on so this will have to be it. Added more fur shading and the flattest background EVER! I enjoyed doing this though, I think I will do more...make some good portfolio pieces!

    Alighty here we go... First off thanks, Caekypigdog for clearing that up, I was reading the wiki stuff and was still a bit lost, alot of intricate concepts to grasp. Also... <slaps forehead> sky armour is rust red? noooo, at least I'm not to far in.
    CHOW #63 - VOTING - Guest Host:D-BAKER. Topic: Iorek Byrnison
    I made my Iorek alot more humanoid than what seems to be in most stuff I see, but Im pretty much running with it, see how it will pan out.
    CHOW #63 - VOTING - Guest Host:D-BAKER. Topic: Iorek Byrnison
    Okay, a bit further along, I changes his armour up a bit, I was originally gonna do a pretty traditional breastplate but then thought waht the hell, the setting allows for play so I went with something a touch more modern for him, also adding a helmet atm.
    One other thing, Im thinking of making his scale coat thingy a similar red, as shown, anyone think it might be too much red? I think it borders on too much but also ties it together more than just plain metal.

    CHOW #63 - VOTING - Guest Host:D-BAKER. Topic: Iorek Byrnison
    Ok, final done, and Im not cutting super fine like normal! whooo! I tried a new technique for the mail coat so reasonably happy but could take a bit of perfecting before I decently grasp it. anyways.

    Chuck Wadey: Wow, nice colour job, I really dig it dude!
    Cakeypidog: Another solid entry man! looks like it could be a cover great layout,
    Jakkas: Nice dude, I really like the action sketch in the background too!
    Krepedos: nice work dude, good pic.
    Cheers guys
