Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to...
What is Team Challenge?
Team Challenge is a lot like Team CHoW, where members of CA.org form teams to create a group of characters based on a theme... It's like regular CHoW, but diversified; rather than create only a group of characters, this time you are drawing a little bit from each of CA's activities: CHoW, COW, EOW, IOW, IDOW and POW! Using a little bit of each design field, you will together create a small piece of a unique and intriguing world. What kind of world? Well, we will reveal the theme soon; the next few days are for you to find your team and get psyched.
Please read rules carefully!
- - - Teams may consist of 2-5 members. Depending on the size of your team you will have a different work load. Pay close attention so that you do the correct work for your team size!
Team of 2 must do (at least) character, creature, illustration.
Team of 3 must do (at least) character, creature, illustration, environment.
Team of 4 must do (at least) character, creature, illustration, environment, industrial.
Team of 5 must do (at least) character, creature, illustration, environment, industrial, panels (2 pages).
Character, creature and industrial design must have at least two views each (for example, front and back). These are not to be illustrations, but design sheets. Environment, illustration, and panels will be the full illustrations. The illustration should include at least two elements from your other pieces (ie character and industrial, or creature and environment, etc)
If you want to do more than the required amount you are free to do so, but you must do the minimum or you will be disqualified.
Find Your Team
The theme for the challenge will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime use this thread if you're looking for teammates. If you would like to be assigned to a random team, make a post letting us know, and we will randomly team you up with others when the topic is revealed. You are free to form or join a team even after the contest has begun, it just might be trickier to find teammates. Everyone with a CA.org account is eligible. You can add or remove members from your team at any time, just please remember that if your team size changes, so does your minimum workload!
The theme does not enforce any particular genre or time period, so if you would like to start throwing loose ideas around with your team you are free to do so.
When you have found your team, come up with a team name and make a thread in this forum called "TEAM CHAL: Insert Team Name Here". This thread is where you and your teammates will post references, WIPs, see each others' progress and help each other along. Teams that stay active in their thread have a better chance of success! The focus of this competition is on team work. Creating a set of work that feels unified will help your chances.
This is a 6 week challenge. We will reveal the theme on Sunday, July 15, and final submissions will be due on Sunday, August 23. This will run alongside regular weekly activities, so if you'd rather do those you still have that option.
There will be PRIZES! They will be revealed with the theme, so hold tight.
EDIT: Topic and prizes revealed! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=245176
Any questions or suggestions can be posted in this thread as well.
