Crud Buttowski - Space Trucker
_______________________________Originally Posted by PoshspiceHere we go...
Crud Buttowski - Independant Intergalactic importer/exporter. Crud spends almost every moment, piloting/driving his SilverGlide 6000 Pantecnicon (a space truck) between job after job. Mostly legal, but Crud has been known to do the odd backhander; a box of Ribos 6 Angel Pineapples (which give an extra ten years of life to those that can afford them) slipped in amongst the crates of Poot Chickens, just help a bit with the up-keep of his trusty rig. Perpetually cheerful, except with other Space Lane users, whom he just regards as an inconvenience, he's always on the lookout for the Rozzers (an old British Earth coloquialism meaning police) or a couple of hot hitchers. Puffing on his cheroot and either chatting on the SCB (space citizen band radio) or singing along to his favourite choon, the days couldn't be happier for Crud.
He can be alien or humanoid. It's up to you. Just have fun with him in any style you want!
1 = Trucker... sort of.
2 = Cheerful
3 = Not particulary a master of personal hygeine.

This is as far as I could get this week. I don't think it'll go to the polls, but I'd thought I'd share my approach anyways.
Crud Buttowski is the offspring of Chuck and ^(*^(*^(% Buttowski (not sure how to pronounce the mother's name). He's the result of one of Chuck's pit stops out in the Void, Sector 13, where he picked up a species not seen in these parts. The two galloped of into the big dipper, one thing led to another, and so we have Crud. Crud says he's got the best attributes: his dad's occupation and brains to his mom's charming smile and good looks. Crud hopes to bring honor to the family name by doing the best he can, trucking it amongst the stars.
That's what I got. Cool entries guys and best of luck.

Nice topic - this Crud fellow is certainly on much more familiar ground than Petra...
This sounds damn fun....
Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attraction of others.
Look at the monkey wh0re himself out:
Here's a rough sketch I did. Not sure if I will be able to complete this I have so much stuff to do by Monday. Anyways, I see lots of good stuff here keep up the good work guys!

sure, but maybe unfamilliar ground is where you grow on. i must admit, i could do more reps on a space trucker, but, a skanky 60s gal would have excercised different muscles.....
sounds like fun!
Here's my WIP, making the mecharm i realised it has resemblance with a character from Disney's Treasure Planet.
Meet Crut 'Spacebubble' Buttowski. There isn't a place in the galaxy he hasn't seen. From the far waterjungles of Gasda to the icy planet of Kleusoerloe Crut's bin there, delivering whatever it is he's got in his SilverGlide 6000 Pantecnicon. Farting and swearing but always polite to a handsome lady. Crut's specialy known for his jokes, the one about the Teloshian Fasdagh comes from him lol.

Ok, so here is my initial wip. He needs a tough rig and a sweet babe(or a sweet rig and a tough babe).
Uh-oh Tommoy, looks like we found the archetype pretty quickly. Mine looks like my dad.
Are we allowed to post a wip, then update it or should I hold off till its finished? If so I can take this sketch down
until its refined. I am new but I thought I saw people doing that in the Petra Hepburn chow.
Ok, so I decided to make an illustration of it and now I've gone off the deep end. No turning back, even if it doesn't
get finished before the deadline.
Workin' on the pants...

I will try this but I am doing the COW too so I may not be able to finish. UPDATED...again! No time to color but this is my final line art. I needed to do a little bit of tweaking of the line in a few areas. Enjoy! :-D

Just for kicks, here's a lo-poly 3D model I did years ago...kinda fits the character.

- My Artwork! -
Ha ha ha that's awesome Posh! I like his boots and the belly is just perfect. Can't wait to see where you're going with this one.
Migsta > Very nice indeed!! I like the concept, original of you to go with the skinny alien type. Nicely painted.
Rogzilla > Nice sketch, I like the rocker look he's got, and the T-shirt is cool I'd like to see some more details on him, sci-fi clothes or props or something.
Rustylynn > Good start, just don't forget the sci-fi element Give him something that brings this trucker cowboy into space
Penumbra > Ha ha very funny sketch indeed, I'd like to see this one finished
Tommoy > Love the piece, yes he does look a bit like long John Silver in Treasure planet, but not too much. I really like that friendly look he's got, looks like a nice guy.
Great stuff guys.
This pic is going nowhere i'm out.

Hey people I hope you will accept me in your drawing company here are my baby steps:
I did some referencing for the truck
Thanks for the comments Kredepops. Yeah, I know he isn't very sci-fi yet. I kinda just wanted to get an idea of his personality, then start molding him into the scenario. I think I may make him a mutation or something. I wanted to give him a robotic arm but that has been done already. :-/
Hehe rogzilla, he's got legs too!.
my crud wip.
There, I've updated my wip...I hope to get more done on Sat. I should be working rather than playing but I can't help myself.
Not too sure about my initial sketch, may go back to the drawing board and make it more readable as a trucker - thought I dont know if him filling his space truck up at the garage is indication enough?
Here's where I'm at after working some more on todays sketch
Crud Buttowski is so proud of his body that he ordered his custom spacesuit in a flesh tint, he even went as far as having his tattoos painted on the suit. Crud isn't known for being the most tasteful creature in the galaxy.

Wow, Great work so far guys.
here's what i came up with.
Here's a preliminary of my entry. I wanted to do something a little different, so I put him in a pea cap and make him more of a teamster.
Slow going here. I've had a rough week: trans-Pacific flight, fell asleep at the gate, missed a connection and had to sleep on the Houston airport floor. Here's the base of what I'm working on; if the final ends up a turkey, at least I've got an interesting design from which to model a new 3D character.
Curses! No time to finish this one, and it was just starting to show promise. On the upside, I did get to attend my wife's friend's wedding and kick back in Chapel Hill. Nice work, y'all.
