~ BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE THREAD ~

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).

    Aw, thanks guys. Yes, it's Clifford the big red dog, and Babe the blue ox.
    And Jasper, you better put one in - I'm just lucky the big guns haven't been fired yet.

    Maybe I'll draw a conclusion, but for now this will have to do.

    Edit: Send me a message or something if you'd be interested in possibly getting a screen screen printed poster of this. I think I'll try and print this myself in the next few weeks.

    That's where mine was kind of going. It's hard to pick a side with dualities such as this. :/

    This is actually a shirt design I'm working on for a friend, but I saw the challenge thread and thought it kind of fit the theme.

    6wipmuaythaicopygx1.jpg

    All vector artwork, currently 6 colours and hoping to keep it that way (I still have other stuff to add to it actually plus fix the blue guy's arm)

    EDIT: Updated the design a little.

    So many ideas for this challenge, and not enough artistic potential to realize them.

    Eh, I suppose I could still give it a shot.

    EDIT: Do you mind if I give out a little suggestion, Peas? IMO the image would be greatly improved by having the blue or the red pieces completely outnumbering the pieces of the other colour, giving it a sort of 'last stand' vibe.

    Just a thought...

    DOUBLE-EDIT: I was doodling around, trying to get some ideas for this down on paper. Here's one of them...

    redvsbluestage1bn3.jpg

    I was going to go for the whole elemental animal thing, perhaps have them circling around in a yin-and-yang style design. Kind of overdone, but... Meh...

    MULTI-EDIT: Now that I think of it, a whale and a fox wasn't the best choice of animal; the scales just don't match up. Maybe... I don't know... A peacock instead?

    Why thank you edmangoodrich!

    Damn, Cyber, that's awesome, the light sourcing is spot on... My only gripe is that Smurfs don't have genitals... by all accounts. ;-)
