AC CHALLENGE 26: SEVEN DEADLY HELMETS

So I didn't exactly win officially- but people are harassing me, so here's your contest!

Leave me alone!!*

The seven deadly sins; Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride are riding headlong into the battle to end all battles. All is lost, the end is here. The world is about to be cleansed of all life by these mighty warriors. Jerks.

The last thing humanity will see will be these warriors. Sitting atop mind bending, insanity beasts, dressed in armor beyond mortal imagination, carrying weapons of pure.... well, awesomeness, pretty much.

However it's their helmets that would have become tales of legend- if only someone or something had survived to tell about them.

Your mission: Select a sin! Draw his/her helmet! Go!

*Never leave me alone

For those of you who frequent the conceptart.org forums this should be pretty familiar; tens of artistic combatants thrown together in to an artistic arena, each struggling for the honor of being dubbed a master of the visual arts. Those of you who succeed will be bathed in glory and the blood of their competitors, those of you who fail will be exiled to a life of shame and isolation.

The aim of this thread is to try and spice things up a bit here in the ol' Artist's Corner. This thread is for entries in to the challenge or the discussion thereof. If you'd like to suggest a topic for the weekly challenge, go right ahead, but understand that the last winner of the challenge has total control over the task (unless they have won more than two challenges in a row, see rules).

The rules are simple;

RULES:

* One entry per person, per challenge.
* A contestant cannot win more than two challenges in a row.
* Winner gets the privilege of choosing the next challenge.
* At the end of a challenge, the thread is locked and a new one is begun.
* Stick to the challenge topic; no going off on a tangent.
* All formats welcome, whether they be traditional or digital; 2D or 3D; still or animated.


If you're looking for inspiration, check out the aforementioned conceptart.org forums (specifically the creature/environment/character of the week sections).

    I started on Lust and Pride last night, because I thought those kind of went together.

    Perhaps the appearance of a crappy entry will serve to encourage more people to participate.

    Sorry Peas, pretty sure I've already got "crappy entry" covered.

    So, your paper bag with holes in it... Sloth?

    Here are my sketches for the project.

    seven_helms.jpg

    They're a little wacky, but I drew probably like fifty different helms keeping the words in mind, and then just cherry picked the ones that seemed to fit best. I was kind of going for a riders of the apocalypse thing.

    Hokay. I can't decide if this is still a WIP, or if I'm fed up and not finishing it. I'm going with fed up.

    Helm of Lust, everybody!

    For a start, remove the
    /
    from your first tag.


Then, removeclass="bbcode_img">

    Then remove the
    "
    from either side of your link

    Unfortunately, the picture you're linking is tiny.

    I'm pretty sure photobucket has options you can click+copy to share your pictures fullsize. Find the one that starts with and copy it to the board here.

    Greed/gluttony... sloth also looks like an interesting concept.

    Gluttony, in some sort of Incan style. It got sort of messy from using brushy brushes.
