Told the other guys, but making it official here: I gotta bow out. Have some other things I need to work on that take precedence right now. Though there are rumors that there may be a brand new Loveboys available to take my place
Kickass stuff in here already though, can't wait to see it all go down!
Marco... man, you know you are looking at a great image when you feel
inspired, excited, and horribly depressed by its sheer awesomeness all at the
same time. That rendition of Death kicks ass. I think the reason why some
people might be finding it hard to read is because, while there definitely is a
lot of death/dieing in the image, the astronaut's corpse seems to lack the
personification of Death that most people associate with the "Death" tarot
card. However you have done such a nice job of presenting the feeling of
death without any of the cliche trappings of the grim reaper which imo is
awesome. I personally think if this card was taken in the context of a "deep
space" tarot deck it would be obvious which card it was.
Twitch - sucks that you have to sit this one out. I hate that we wont get to
see any new contributions from you this round. I guess thats how it goes
I love the direction you guys have decided to take this chow I can't wait to
see more. Keep on kicking ass guys!
so far we have just started with style exploration and i think we want this sort of epic not too distant future deep space exploration thing
but as much as the tarot cards are tarot card they are still for the sake of this competition characters so we are trying to make characters that embody these cards not just cards. the way i see it even if a scene matches the properties of a card if the character therein doesnt we have failed. my images are all style exploration thus far. marco's will be going to final and david? wheres my chippy?
Hey thanks Adam, that just made my day. You're absolutely right about why it doesn't immediately read. Unfortunately, since we don't have the luxury of creating an entire deck in this theme to allow the subtleties of individual cards to shine, I'll probably have to bite the bullet and push the personification harder towards the obvious than I would have liked with this one.
This is my inspiration for the topic btw...

Sorry for the lack of updates, haven't been happy enough with what I've been doing until tonight. Probably spent too much time on it for how far I'm not, but oh well. The tentacle/probe/wand things won't be glowing so much and there's going to be some tools floating around to look like he's actually working on the satellite.

Fine pieces! I really like the deep space feeling of it!
I dont worry, couse you guys can draw like hell, so it doesnt matter how late you buff out some images, it will kick out my brain... the only reason i am so impatient, and exited is, that i really love when my brain is kicked out, many times!
spin it up BOYZ!
you know when you have that heart throbbing feelings in your throat and you cannot breath?
i having that right now. the only way i will ever be able to stop this sensation is from the completeness of this challenge from THLs.
forever a fan,
cold silent alone all sounds like death to me. I think subtlety is far more interesting and entertaining for the eyes.
sorry we had to bow
real life got in the way repeatedly
i had to leave town twice this month and the truth is with work and this my hands couldnt keep up. my tendonitis is still not 100% gone and i was over doing it
i will do something with all of this work but now is not the time
great job to all who finished there are so many great entries and thanks for all the support sorry we couldnt get this done
