SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5th
The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday afternoon my time (GMT +2) yet i'll have a look at the last entries.
GAME/TOY - RAYMAN - NO RABBID!
Few more days of work on Rayman Raving Rabbids - and we're done.
Check it out here!
Now... these guys are the cream of the game.
I have been seing those Rabbids for a long time now and i wanted to make a contest about them.
Initialy - i wanted to see what kind of rabbids you guys can make - but i'm affraid of copywright problems.
So... what if this game was not with rabbids... ?
CREATE A NON RABIT CHARACTER - Build the ortho.
Make it simple - see designer toys
feel free to add expressions and animation instruction.
These babies will be built 3D in the 3D contest starting next week. With a bit of luck.. we'll have them animated!
WATCH OUT THE ORTHO
I have received a lot of negative feedback about the orthos in the first run. Things from one side.. don;t hold in the other side.
I asked the 3D people to post these problems... i hope they will.
You are free to make varriants and accesories - just MERGE IT ALL IN A CHARACTER SHEET.
For more info about ortho and the 3D contest
SCULPT & 3D Challenge (in progress)
1 = Ortho.
2 = Simple
3 = Stupid
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.
[EDIT] - Rules Change - No description needed.

Oh man, that game looks like fun!
Good idea for a contest too! I want to participate!
Oh man, this topic looks made for me!
I'm posting a very preliminary sketch here as placeholder, I love doing cute and stupid guys!
I'll try my hardest to make this one, sounds fun
love the eyes and mouth entdroid
hahahahahaha, i was just jumping in to see what could someone possibly come up with....and Entroid's piece just made me let out a HUGE laugh. thats the craziest thing iv ever seen. try to stare at it for 50 seconds without laughing.....serious, i dare everyone
im confused so its supposed to be rabbit like or what?
i think i can do this....rilly sabbit. kix are for trids!
I think I found my inspiration.
Edit: Here's a little doodle I did for some brainstorms. From left to right: blind mole rat, naked mole rat, and two star-nosed moles.
Here he is colored. I think I'll name him Nakey.
WIP of the ortho.

fersteger - I like the character - but he is smoking and thus wouldn't exactly be compatible with kids. It wasn't a requirement though. It's just an observation. Stating the obvious, you see?
chadmango: Almost too simple. I don't know, but personally I'd try to make him look less like Tweety. Ah, well, but it is difficult to make a bird character, that doesn't hold something. It's fine I guess. But can you beat the squirrel character, for example? Give the bird something extra... A three/quarter view would be good also, to show more of the character.
Hey this is a sketch i came up with. it is also my first entry so any feedback would be great =)
OK so here is a colored version of my skullbear.this is my first CHOW i do so
any feedback, coments, critiques would be of great help =)

10PM still at the office - i managed to take a snapshot at some scribbles in my sketchbook
his name is mungo jerry
he can be painted in many ways - i made parrot out of him (on a napkin at lunch, and a spaceman, and so on)
I hope i'll have the time to detail him and to do it properly.
I gotta run now.
This should be the final week of megatrouble... so.. after this i'll be able to participate - hopefully.
I realy want to see some of this guys made 3D - textured, animated and all
I hoped we will have more entries... well.. i guess we'll get everyone back when we'l get back to monsters and chicks.
Next week is suggestion thread subject.

yes - this is a bit out of control.
DONT" forcet guys - try to make it liek a Designer Toy - -it shoul dlook interesting just as a shape. It should allow different and custom paints.
YOu should want to have it on your monitor on in your toy collection.
My doodles aren;'t good either but i was just fooling around in open canvas at 10PM still in the office.
The 3D guys aren't fooling around. The challenge is picking up more and more tallent and inertia.
Have a look at the great sculpt by Kris V12 based on cognition.sb concept.
Swing over to the 3D area and see the rest of the WIPS.
Let's not screw up their next round.
Let's give them some amazing concepts... just becoue it's supposed to be silly , it doesn't mean it's not important.
In fact i think it's harder.
entroid - one of the best starts. do it 3D (see it form sides) , try to picture it without eyes and see it in pure white plastic... see if the shapes are atractive and still funny. Also ... plan some expresions.
Moai - i think in terms of shape, it looks a bit monotonous rigth now. Make it stand out between the other toys from the desk.
fersteger - not a designer toy, a bit mor elike Disnay character- but i read the crazyness and i like the bastard Maybe with some crazy expressions . it can turn into a great entry.
chadmango - if it will be all made of white plastik... how will you paint it? it's also more towards Disney then a Designer Toy... it' cute... no crazy attitude for now. Surely.. it hides a ton of teeth a la chups chups
Supervlieg - can;t go wrong with a monkey love it - any weapons? more expreeions for the animator? tag line ?
mike - try to clean it - do a line only version. Eventualy built it with the bezier line to have it ultra clean. Draw your grid - (see Supervlieg's - and align all the details). COncept is interesting... more spooky then crazy.. but.. it can turn out interesting.
Oblio - it sucks.lazy bastard.
Spazazo - umm.. it looks like a rabbit.
Woodlandwalker - self portrait again ? clean and nice. a bit spooky
More about the rabbits here:

hey woodland....your tiki is lookin' good....be careful not to make it too close to this one...
Wow, I sure didn't expect to see that sculpture when scrolling down... Time to check out the 3D area...
Will probably be back to participate later.
I decided to do a cameleon-character. It sure is fun drawing cameleons, people!
I didn't have stupid enough looking chracters, but I think the one I ended with is silly enough to qualify! Hope he is also simple enough. Please let me know what you think!
I'll still add the back view and hopefully color them all. I hope he is not too detailed - I know the rabbit example is very simple, so let me know what you think.

Hey people, today is the deadline! I hope you all post your character! Come on! Finish them!!!
Woodlandwalker: Reminds me of the Flamin Moe drink from The Simpsons (about ten years old that episode, but very good!)
Supervlieg: Pink monkey wip alert Ha, that's funny. I like that "WIP alert", I might have to use that from now on
I hope you polish the character - he could turn out beautifully! DO IT!!!
Alright, there are more promising entries here but I don't want to comment on all of them now. Just finish them already
